HPW Luxury | 6 Desirable Features Found in HPW Luxury Homes

In and around the Triangle area, there are several beautiful luxury listings available for sale. What exactly differentiates these properties from the standard market? Is it the square footage, the features, or the technology? Some would say it is all of the above. Ultimately, luxury buyers are not looking at the price tag in their search for their next dream home but the amazing amenities that come with the property. Here are the top 6 must-have features in luxury homes!

1. Indoor / Outdoor living

Indoor/outdoor living seamlessly extends your home's great room or dining quarters. This trend tends to keep cohesion in design from the interior to the exterior of your home. Typically indoor/ outdoor living has always been a primal commodity when searching for a new home. With the new normal consisting of being at your humble abode more these days, the amenity has become a necessity. What makes an outdoor living space luxurious is the ability to provide comfort through all seasons while also allotting multiple entertainment options. High-end features include retracting screened porches, outdoor kitchens, cabanas, and sometimes a type of water feature. This CBHPW luxury listing checks off each box on the list! With its large covered porch and a wood fireplace, the immaculate outdoor kitchen has a top-of-the-line grill station, jacuzzi, and extensive acreage for sporting events or games. One thing for sure is that you may yearn to host any occasion with this property as your next home. To view more of this listing, click here.  

2. Theatre Room 

Entertainment becomes the next level when a luxury property contains an in-home theater. The ability to bring the ultimate cinematic experience to your fingertips is a sought amenity many buyers search for when hunting for their next home. What makes an in-home theater top-notch is its ability to incorporate features similar to an actual movie theater. This includes a top-of-the-line av-system, projector, large screens, recessed lighting, and comfortable loungers. The goal of the theater room is to immerse yourself in what's on the screen, whether that be the newest megahit movie or the exciting rival sports game. The cinema room pictured above is from none other than one of our CBHPW luxury listings.

3. Large Garages

The standard two-car garage does not cut it for luxury properties. Buyers are looking for substantial space when envisioning the housing of their precious automobiles. Typically, luxury properties have at least a 3-car garage! To any car buff, the garage is not just a space for storing your vehicle. This part of the property could be turned into a luxurious showroom, man cave, or workshop. This beautiful CBHPW luxury property comes with a three-car garage with gorgeous rustic wood garage doors. To view more of this property, click here.  

4. Intricate Ceiling Designs

Raised ceilings and other intricate ceiling styles are quite the fanbase for luxury homes. A room turns from basic to compelling when there is a ceiling feature that adds depth, sophistication, and style. In most luxury dwellings, at least one space must contain a styled ceiling. One of these rooms can be the living room, sitting room, primary bedrooms, and or dining rooms. What exactly are some styles of these ceilings? They are cathedral, tray, beamed, suspended, and coffered. One would love to have any of these exquisite designs in their home!  For example, in this CBHPW luxury listing above. The sitting room contains a beautiful coffered ceiling. The coffered ceiling consists of sunken panels accented by molding, creating a waffle-like appearance. What works well in this room is the brilliant addition of recessed lighting. For more on this property click here

5. Massive Walk-In Closets

Typically an owner of a luxury home tends to live a complete life of luxury. Meaning everything about them is high-end, like their fashion sense. Closets in a luxury home are an extension of the main room and need to boast space and means of organization. Closets these days are not just for hanging clothes. They can be an area to lounge in after using the spa bathroom or a place to put on that fashion show after shopping in the streets of London. For sure, luxury home buyers are looking for closets that encompass organization and can show off their beautiful wardrobe. In this CBHPW luxury home, the primary closet is genuinely massive. This closet incorporates different levels of custom built-in shelving and an island dresser to accommodate all buyers' attire needs. To view more of this property, click here.

6. Relaxing Spa baths

When buyers search for their next home, kitchens and bathrooms are the most focused rooms, which is why main bathrooms in luxury homes are genuinely upping the ante in their need to give that spa-like aura. Features include a jacuzzi bathtub fit for a king, a large walk-in shower that doubles as a steam room, neutral colors, beautiful stone or tile, and lots of space for minimal clutter. In this CBHPW luxury listing, this bathroom truly exuberates comfort and relaxation. The large window allows natural light to encase the room, making the white pop against the darker grays. The unity in neutral colors creates a calming sensation. One can relax in the free-standing tub or use the shower with multi-shower heads in this bathroom. To view more, click here

Kitchen Features Buyers Want in 2022

Kitchen Features 2022

When exploring prospective homes, one of the spaces that many homebuyers prioritize is the kitchen. Since a kitchen serves as a spot for cooking, dining, entertaining, and even working, our real estate agents understand why a home's kitchen is important to potential homebuyers. Here are some of the kitchen features that buyers want in 2022. 

  1. An Efficient Design
    Buyers want a kitchen that makes it easier to use the space. A kitchen should be set up so that it's convenient to move between food prep, cooking, and clean-up. For example, a kitchen with a pull-out trash bin and cutting board is attractive because it makes it easier to dispose of food waste and other items when you're cooking. There should be a large surface that can be used for food prep that's located in close proximity to the stove and other appliances. 
  1. An Updated Design
    Homeowners spend a lot of time in their kitchens, and they prefer that it be a space that's aesthetically pleasing. A higher-end countertop (like granite or quartz), sturdy cabinets with updated hardware, and coordinating flooring all work together to create a space that's aesthetically pleasing. When planning to add your home to the list of Raleigh homes for sale, plan on making a few changes to update your kitchen's look, like a fresh coat of paint or new cabinet hardware. 
  1. Space for Storing and Organizing Kitchen Necessities
    Even the most gorgeous kitchen will be less appealing if it lacks storage space for housing kitchen essentials. An ideal kitchen will have a pantry (buyers often prefer a walk-in pantry) and an ample number of cabinets and drawers. Buyers don't like cluttered countertops, and it's a lot easier to keep counters clear and tidy when there's sufficient storage. An easy way to make your kitchen's storage space appear larger is to declutter your cabinets, drawers, and other storage areas. Spaces that are completely filled with stuff look untidy and even appear smaller than they actually are. 
  1. A Clean, Well-Maintained Kitchen Space
    A simple way to ensure that any kitchen looks its best is to thoroughly clean it. Buyers often shy away from homes that look as if they need a lot of maintenance and cleaning. When preparing to list your home with other Durham homes for sale, one of the most important things you can do is meticulously clean your kitchen from top to bottom. Use a vacuum cleaner with an attachment to remove dust and debris before cleaning the walls, counters, floors, and other surfaces with the appropriate cleaning products. If there's any maintenance you need to do, like changing lightbulbs, fixing a leaky faucet, or repairing an uneven cabinet, take care of these issues before listing your home. 
  1. Updated Technology
    Buyers like kitchens with technology that makes their lives easier. Smart appliances that allow you to operate and adjust them remotely are appealing, as are models that are energy efficient. While kitchen appliances don't have to be brand new, they should appear to be in good condition. Dated appliances can make the entire kitchen look old and unattractive.

Fun Places to Take the Kids While Your Home is Being Shown

Raleigh Locations for Family Fun

While virtual showings are more popular than ever before, there are also many buyers enthusiastic about visiting in person. We're glad to oblige to get you the timeline and price you want.

The Story Behind Raleigh-Durham's Strong Tech Workforce

Tech Industry Raleigh

When you think of a technology powerhouse you probably don't think of North Carolina first – but maybe you should. The Raleigh-Durham area, also known as the "Research Triangle," is a major metropolis of more than two million people bolstered by leading universities and much more.

Because of the astounding research output of local educational institutions, many top businesses have been expanding into the area or moving there altogether. 

Today, with costs greatly increasing in many areas, companies that may once have set up in New York or California are examining their options here. Now is the time to select Raleigh homes for sale and to take full advantage of the many opportunities the area holds in store.

Raleigh-Durham is in Position to Explode in Size and Influence by 2025

Hatch IT, a recruiting company that helps technology startups recruit young professionals, has estimated that Raleigh-Durham could grow to become the #2 biggest technology hub on the U.S. East Coast by 2025. This big claim is backed up by some equally big trends and facts you won't want to overlook:

  • Convenience and Cost in Raleigh-Durham Remain Enticing to Technology Workers
    No one wants to pay thousands of dollars commuting to their job every year, especially in a mostly remote world. Raleigh-Durham's cost of living has been measured at around $2,743 for a single person, making it nearly half the cost of living in the Washington, D.C. area. Public transit is more robust than in many cities, and Raleigh consistently ranks as one of the top 50 most walkable U.S. cities.

  • The Community Has a Long History of Collaborating with Technology Startups
    For decades now, attracting technology talent has been a major element of Raleigh-Durham's success. To this very day, the area has nearly as many qualified software engineers as in much larger and more famous cities, including the nation's capital. Both state and city continue to partner with technology firms and invest in creating a favorable business atmosphere that gives rise to competitive wages.

  • Operational Costs for Businesses Are Among the Lowest of All Major Options
    Cost of living, leasing space, and commute times all matter when it comes to fostering the top tech talent. Raleigh-Durham offers a prime geographic position along with strong tax and other incentives. This accelerates the growth of new businesses and has even brought in Fortune 500 firms.

  • New Infrastructure is Continuing to Expand Opportunities in Raleigh-Durham
    While many cities are falling behind in infrastructure, Raleigh-Durham continues to develop in surprising and intriguing ways. The housing market is robust and has a wide variety of options to meet different budget considerations. It is serviced by Raleigh-Durham International Airport, making a trip abroad simple, and it even has a growing number of award-winning restaurants.

  • Raleigh-Durham is Top Tier Compared to Other Burgeoning Would-Be Tech Hubs
    Raleigh-Durham isn't the only major metroplex in contention to become the newest growth area for the technology sector – but it may well be in the best shape to realize its ambitions. Other metro areas consistently lag behind Raleigh-Durham in quality of life metrics relevant to both workers and businesses.

    7 Safety Tips for Trick or Treat

    Halloween Safety

    October is in full swing, meaning it's time to make your Halloween plans. If your evening includes a trick-or-treating session, our real estate agents suggest following these guidelines to ensure that all your little ghosts and goblins remain safe:

    1. Opt for Flame-Retardant Materials
      When choosing or making a Halloween costume, look for flame-retardant materials. Some people like to use a real candle in their jack-o-lanterns, and it's common for festive individuals to light a few candles to fill their homes with a seasonal aroma. If a child accidentally brushes against an open flame, a flame-retardant costume will decrease the chance of injury and prevent the flame from spreading. 
    1. Check That Costumes Fit Well
      Your child's costume should be comfortable and allow them to freely move around. See that pants, skirts, and robes are hemmed to the appropriate length so that they don't accidentally trip over them. If the costume includes a mask, make sure that the eye holes are positioned in the correct location and don't obscure their vision. Any accessories, like a broom or sword, should be small enough for the child to carry without dragging them on the ground. 
    1. Go Over Trick-or-Treat Etiquette
      Even if they've gone trick-or-treating numerous times, make sure kids remember the proper etiquette. Remind kids to only go to homes with the lights turned on. Encourage them to stay on designated walkways and avoid walking through the homeowner's grass or flower beds. A "please" and a "thank you" are fantastic ways for kids to show appreciation to neighbors handing out treats. 
    1. Check That Kids Have a Light Source With Them
      With so many kids out and about and adults and older teens heading to Halloween parties or haunted houses, it's essential for anyone walking at night to be well-illuminated. See if you can incorporate glow sticks or reflective tape into your child's costume. Or, add a few strips of reflective tape to their costume to ensure drivers can see them. In a pinch, a flashlight is an easy addition to keeping children illuminated. Make sure that the batteries in the flashlight are new so that it lasts the whole evening!
    1. Convey Your Expectations
      If you have older kids who want to go on their own, convey your expectations before they set out. Go over a pre-approved route. Remind them to stay in a group with other children, and see that they have a cellphone on them in case of an emergency. Let your kids know when you expect them home, and make sure they know not to enter any homes. 
    1. Hold Off on Enjoying Any Treats
      Kids should avoid digging into their bag of candy until the night is over for multiple reasons. It's a smart idea to go through their candy at the end of the night and remove anything that's come open or appears to have been tampered with. Check that all of their candy is suitable for their dietary needs. Small candy is a choking risk for small kids, and even older kids can inadvertently swallow candy when they're walking. 
    1. Stow Electronic Devices
      Keep any electronics (like tablets and mobile phones) stowed until the evening is over. This prevents the device from becoming a distraction while kids are trick-or-treating.

    National Happy Cat Month: 5 Tips for a Pet-Friendly Home

    Raleigh CatsYour pets are a part of the family. Our real estate agents are well aware of that and, since September is National Happy Cat Month, we want to share with you some of the many ways you can make your home more comfortable for them. Make your home the purr-fect place for your feline friends by following these tips. 

    1. Give Them Space
      If you provide a convenient space for your cat with fresh water and food close to the litter box, your cat is going to hate it. That may seem ungrateful, but there are actually good reasons for their reactions. First, their very sensitive noses can locate their litter box when it is quite far away. If it is too close to the food, the odor will overwhelm the scent of their dinner. They are also unhappy if the scent of their food overwhelms the scent of their water. They like to eat in quiet, out-of-the-way places. If this describes your kitchen, it may be a good kitty dining room, but if not, you may want to find a more appropriate location. 

    2. Don't Forget Playtime
      Your first reaction may be that the entire house is a cat playground, and to a degree, you would be correct. But remember that cats love to climb, jump and look down from on high. Fortunately, cat trees come in all shapes and sizes that can fit in any size home, from a small condo to a mansion. Often covered with carpet, it can blend into the decor and serve double duty as cat scratch poles. 

    3. Build a Cat Cave
      Cats love the safety and security of a confined space. Even big cats like lions and tigers will climb into any box they can and curl up in comfort. Some of the most popular cat toys are miniature houses and fabric retreats. They are also more than happy to curl up on your clean laundry, so why not give them a basket with a baby blanket? Whatever you choose, do keep in mind that cats can be like toddlers. No matter how much you spend on the toy, they may prefer to play in the box it came in!

    4. Give the Cat a View
      Indoor cats are prone to sitting for hours staring out of the window. Whether they are watching the birds in the trees or just relaxing in the sun, a special cat should have a special space, much as you might enjoy a reading nook in a bay window. You can make it special with a well-placed shelf or even just a chair. Be sure the cat has easy access to the window itself by opening the drapes or blinds sufficiently. 

    5. Keep the Litter Box Odor-Free

    5 Backyard Composting Tips

    Composting Tips

    Looking for an easy, affordable way to improve your garden and reduce your waste output? Create your own backyard compost pile!

    Composting is the natural process of recycling garden, yard, and kitchen waste into fertile garden soil. When you add compost material to your soil, you improve its health, help it retain moisture, and provide protection against disease and pests. 

    Our real estate agents know that a property with attractive landscaping appeals to prospective buyers. Here are some tips to follow for optimal backyard composting. 

    1. Select the Right Area for Your Compost Bin
      For the best results, your compost pile needs to be located in a suitable environment. Look for a spot that's dry and shady but has access to a water source. If your home is lacking in outside space, it's possible to set up a small compost bin inside your home. 
    1. Know What to Add to Your Compost Pile
      Every compost pile should have water, browns, and greens. These ingredients are all necessary to produce nutrient-rich compost. Browns include yard and garden waste, like twigs, dead leaves, and branches. Greens consist of grass clippings, fruit and vegetable waste, and old coffee grounds. Your compost pile needs an equal amount of browns and greens. Water keeps the compost pile moist so that it breaks down more rapidly. 
    1. Understand What NOT to Add to Your Compost Pile
      A few items should not be composted. These items may harm plants or produce an odor that attracts insects. When you put your home on the market, it's essential to confirm that your compost pile is odor-free so that it doesn't deter homebuyers. Never add plants with disease or pests to your compost pile, as both disease and pests can be transmitted to other plants when you add the compost to your garden. Avoid adding fats, meats, bones, and dairy products, as all these items will make your compost pile smell and attract rodents and insects. Any yard or garden waste that's been treated with chemical pesticides should stay out of your compost pile. Pesticides can kill the organisms necessary to break down organic material. 
    1. Cover Your Compost Pile
      It can take between a couple of months and a couple of years for organic materials to turn into compost. Hasten the process by covering your compost pile. Covering your compost helps it retain moisture that assists with the degradation of your food and yard waste. You can opt for a compost bin with a lid or use a tarp to cover your compost pile. 
    1. Be Picky with How You Layer Your Compost
      Always put a layer of browns as the top layer on your compost pile. This will minimize any odors associated with your compost, and it helps the materials retain moisture. A brown top layer also decreases the number of pests and insects attracted to your compost pile. When you add new waste to your compost pile, alternate brown and green layers, check that the brown layers are two to three times thicker than your green layers.

    A compost pile is a great way to supply your garden with nutrients. Ready to add your home to the list of Raleigh homes for sale? Contact us today to get started!

    Kitchen Updates You'll Enjoy Using

    Kitchen Updates

    Once you've found your perfect home, the next step is to make it your own - starting with the kitchen. If cooking is your passion, you can up your culinary game with a few simple design ideas. There are plenty of Raleigh homes for sale with amazing kitchens to suit your needs. Here's how to take those kitchens even further.

    Appliances

    The right tools can help in a myriad of ways. An induction cooktop, for instance, regulates heat much more accurately than a regular stovetop, allowing for more precise temperature measurements. The appliance itself never gets hot, reducing the risk of accidental burning. Plus, it's more energy-efficient than electric or gas stoves.

    You might also consider a high-speed oven. Using both convection and microwave heating, it heats better and more accurately, cutting cook times in half.

    Finally, if you don't have a stand mixer, it will change your life. A good quality mixer will last for many years, providing thorough, even mixing. You can do everything from whip cream to beat meringue to knead bread dough quickly and easily without wearing out your arms. Plus, with extra attachments, you can roll out and cut your own fresh pasta, grind your own meat, and much more.

    Organization

    A few simple organizational improvements can help you tremendously. Install some sturdy hooks above the stovetop, on which to hang your pots and pans. This will make them easier to find and access when you need them. You can do the same for mixing spoons, spatulae, and other basic tools. For knives, consider installing a long, magnetic strip that the knives can stick to. That way, you can simply remove one when you need it and put it back in its place when it's clean.

    In your cluttered cabinets, try putting in a Lazy Susan. They design them for all different purposes, from organizing herbs and spices to storing empty containers. Whatever you're using it for, a Lazy Susan lets you keep everything organized and view it at a glance, so you don't have to rummage through a lot of extra clutter to find what you need.

    Also, consider installing tension rods in your cabinets. They make great customizable barriers that you can prop things like pans and cookie sheets against, rather than stacking them up. By storing things vertically, you can create more space in your cabinets and keep things more organized.

    Renovation

    If you're really committed to updating your kitchen, consider some renovations and remodels. Start with more shelves. A single shelf that stretches across an entire kitchen wall can provide a tremendous amount of storage for various things without taking up much extra space.

    If your home doesn't have a kitchen island, you should put one in. It provides extra space for everything you need: a counter for prep work, a table for seating, plus storage beneath for pots and pans, appliances, etc.

    To make cleanup simpler, cut a small hole in the kitchen island countertop, and store a trash can in the cabinet underneath. Now you have a quick and easy way to eliminate everything from eggshells to empty packaging as you cook.

    These are just a few of the kitchen updates you can make in your home to make cooking easier and better. Get creative and see what other improvements you can make to help you when you cook.

    If you want to find your perfect home with your dream kitchen, contact us. Our real estate agents can help you find the right space for you and ensure every room will meet your needs.

    Paint Color Psychology: What Colors You Should Use Before Listing Your Home?

    Paint Color Tips

    Have you ever noticed how some rooms entice you into settling back and relaxing, and others make you feel energetic and ready for fun? Understanding the effects of your choice of colors will help you send the correct message to potential buyers. Our real estate agents can tell you that painting your home will probably bring the greatest return on investment of any upgrades you make when selling your home. Keep in mind the psychological effects of these colors before starting to paint. 

    1. Classic white
      Not only does white evoke calming effects, but it also opens up the space, making it appear larger. We often equate white with cleanliness. These are the primary reasons that white has been the most common choice of sellers for decades. Potential buyers also see white as the easiest color to paint over later.

    2. Black
      Often regarded as sophisticated and elegant, too much black can be somber and depressing. It's best used as an accent to bring drama to a classic white interior without interfering with the expansive visual effects. Consider black rugs or small accessories to add interest to what might otherwise be a boring environment.

    3. Gray
      Eliciting the same feelings of calm serenity white brings to the table, it adds versatility, matching any color scheme. gray lends a comforting feeling of warmth to a cool room. This adaptability has made gray the new "go-to" color of many interior decorators, edging white off the pedestal as number one. 

    4. Blue
      From the sky above to the deep blue sea, this color brings a cool calm, making it a good choice for bedrooms and bathrooms. Psychologists tell us it actually lowers blood pressure, and who doesn't need that after a busy day? Available in so many shades, blue can accent a home's architectural style, such as slate blue for a Craftsman or light shades for a beach house. 

    5. Green
      Another cool color, green, also reduces stress and provides a restful environment appropriate for bedrooms, kitchens, and living rooms. Like blue, green is soothing and harmonious, reminiscent of the beauties of nature. Think of how a lush lawn calls to us to take off our shoes and walk across it with bare feet. 

    6. Red
      Of all the warmer colors, red is the most intense, creating energy and stimulating emotions. That can be either good or bad, depending upon where it is used. Increasing energy is great for a recreation room but can be uncomfortable when you are trying to relax in the living room. When painting, consider where you want a stimulating space.

    7. Orange 
      Like red, orange increases tension and excitement, great when you're watching a football game, but not conducive to settling back with a good book. Used carefully, it can encourage enthusiasm, but too much of it can create a feeling of chaos. Used carefully, it can make a dining area feel lively and fun but might be more appropriate to a breakfast bar than a formal dining room.

    The most important thing to remember when you are preparing your house for sale is that you want to make it attractive to buyers, not make it a personal statement. You may find it better to stick with neutral colors of paint and, if you are showing it with furniture, add colors with pillows, bedspreads, and other accessories that can be easily removed. 

    Looking at other Raleigh homes for sale will help you see how a fresh coat of paint can make a difference! Contact us for assistance listing your house.

    5 Benefits of Living Near Parks and Walking Trails

    Raleigh Walking Trails

    Living in the Triangle means that you have constant access to a network of connected trails and outstanding, multi-use parks that offer outdoor fun for residents of all ages. These outdoor hubs of activity bring many benefits to the communities where they're located, including some perks that you might not expect. Our real estate agents have the details on 5 key benefits of living near parks and walking trails.

    1. The Health Benefits of Living Near Trails

      When it comes to health benefits, trails and parks provide both a great place to exercise and added motivation to enjoy a workout. The ease of access when living near outdoor recreation areas makes it easy to work on fitness on your own schedule and having so many great outdoor spaces to explore provides motivation to go exploring. A brisk walk on a trail can help you stay in great shape physically, and spending quiet time in nature has many mental health benefits, too. Local parks provide even more motivation for physical activity, whether you join a sports league, enjoy a stroll in the park, or play with the kids/grandchildren on the playground.

    2. Recreation for Family Members of All Ages and Pets Too

      It's not always easy to find recreation activities that family members of all ages can enjoy together at the same time, so trails are also an asset for family fun and fitness. The Durant Trails neighborhood, located near Raleigh homes for sale, is one great example of how trails can help families stay active and enjoy the outdoors. The neighborhood is filled with connected trails, which you can follow directly to various outdoor attractions. Trails are also great for keeping your pets physically active close to home, and many trails in Raleigh are open to dogs as long as they're kept on a leash.

    3. Trails Connect Neighborhoods, Communities, and Parks

      Why jump in the car for a quick drive to a nearby destination when you can follow a local trail to reach your favorite outdoor attractions? Trails bring neighborhoods together by connecting local parks, nature preserves, and even popular shopping areas. The paved, easy-to-walk Abbots Creek Trail in North Raleigh, for example, travels through the Falls River and Bedford neighborhoods, connecting with a variety of local attractions along the way.

    4. Turning Abandoned Railroad Corridors Into Community Assets

      If you've ever searched for local trails online, then you may already be familiar with the concept of rail trials. These are trail systems that turn abandoned railroad corridors into hubs of outdoor community activity and often feature longer trails than you would find in other locations. The American Tobacco Trail is one of the most popular trail systems near Durham homes for sale, with more than 22 miles of connected trails built on old railroad corridors.

    5. Increasing the Appeal of Neighborhoods for Real Estate Buyers and Sellers

      While there is some debate over how much local trails and parks increase home values directly, there's no doubt that they add more appeal to neighborhoods for people who are shopping for homes. If you're buying a home, choosing one near local trails and parks might be a major attraction. 

    Shopping for your next home near the connected trails and beautiful parks of the Triangle? The right real estate team makes all the difference. Contact us to buy and sell homes throughout the Raleigh, NC area.

    Movie Night: Try These Home Theater Improvements

    Raleigh Home Theater

    Whether you enjoy binge-watching your favorite shows or like to host at-home movie nights, a home theater system is an excellent addition to your home. Our real estate agents find that a home theater system is also appealing to potential homebuyers and helps define your home's unused spaces. Here are a few ways you can take your home theater to the next level.

    1. Select the Right Space
      When deciding where to place your home theater, opt for a room that's removed from the hustle and bustle of your household. This should be a space that's used only for viewing media. Ideally, you should be able to close the room off from the rest of the household when it's time to catch a movie to minimize noise and light pollution. 
    1. Place Your TV or Screen the Correct Distance from Your Seating
      For the best viewing experience, your TV or screen should be the proper distance from your home theater's seating. If your space has a TV, multiply the length of the screen's diagonal size by 1.5 to 2.5 to know where to place the seats. For example, assume you have a 60-inch TV. This means that you'll place your seats anywhere from 90 inches to 150 inches from the screen. However, if you have a projector in your home theater, multiply the width of the screen by 2 to 5 to figure out your seat placement. This makes it comfortable for you to see the whole screen. 
    1. Paint Your Walls a Dark Hue
      Your home theater is the perfect place to embrace a dark color for your walls. Lighter colors can reflect light in the room and cause a glare. Dark hues will absorb light and help you better control the lighting conditions in the room. Raleigh homes for sale with a fresh coat of paint will also show better with prospective buyers. 
    1. Invest in a Home Audio System
      Even top-notch TVs frequently have less than stellar sound quality. Add to your viewing experience by investing in a home audio system. This will ensure that the sound tones are crisp and clear. For a smaller space, a soundbar may be sufficient. You don't want to overwhelm the room with too much sound. If you have a larger home theater room, a surround sound system is an excellent choice for an immersive viewing experience.
    1. Keep Decorative Items Away from Your Screen
      Movie posters and souvenirs are cool, but they can distract you or your guests when you're watching a movie. Instead, position them so that they're behind your seating. 
    1. Opt for Tiered Seating
      Tiered seating is the gold standard for home theaters because it prevents someone from inadvertently obscuring the view of the person behind them. Fortunately, tiered seating doesn't have to be expensive. You can add platforms to your seats to raise them a few inches. Or, you might opt to add a few cozy floor seats; these are often popular with kids who like a little extra space to fidget during a movie.

    North Carolina: One of the Top States for Inbound Moves

    North Carolina Inbound Moves

    In the last five years, while many states are seeing a decline in growth, North Carolina surges forward. In fact, it was recently reported that North Carolina was one of the top states for inbound moves in 2020. If you're curious about why families are flocking to our state, our real estate agents will be happy to answer some of your questions. 

    1. What is North Carolina like? 
      From the majestic Appalachian Mountains to the Atlantic, the terrain sweeps from the 6,684 feet of Mount Mitchell in the Blue Ridge to over 300 miles of pristine beaches. The famous Outer Banks are a string of barrier islands that lie to the east. Outdoor lovers will thrill to skiing in winter, surfing, and sailing in summer. Lakes and rivers offer swimming and fishing. Spectacular views await whichever direction you turn. With four distinct seasons, North Carolina enjoys mild temperatures, with average highs at around 70 degrees and lows from 56-67 degrees.  

    2. What is there to see and do? 
      With a rich history going back to Colonial America, museums and historical sites abound. The North Carolina Museum of Art houses a broad range of art worldwide, including the largest collection of Rodin sculptures in the southeastern United States. In the music scene, you can find a concert somewhere in the city nearly every day. Home of the world's largest beer garden, Raleigh offers a rich nightlife flowing with locally crafted beers to accompany world-class food. 

    3. How much does it cost to live in North Carolina? 
      Homebuyers always look at a house as an investment, probably the largest they will ever make. In North Carolina, the median listing price is $184,100, or about $115 per square foot. Raleigh homes for sale are somewhat higher, but at $315,000 median listing price is still below the national average of $346,800. The continuing high growth in population has given rise to a home appreciation of 8.5% over the last ten years. A number of factors, such as a reasonable flat tax, make the cost of living significantly lower than the rest of the country. The property tax rate is only 0.84%. 

    4. Education Opportunities? 
      Many move to North Caroline to the Research Triangle because of the educational opportunities in a variety of fields and professions. At the college level, Duke, Wake Forest, Davidson, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill top the list of the best colleges in North Carolina out of seventy-nine to choose from.

    5. How is the job market? 
      Although the unemployment rate remains high across the nation, North Carolina anticipates a decline to about 5.1% by December of 2021, with a net job increase of 245,100. With 12 of the states 14 nonagricultural sectors seeing an increase in employment, hospitality, and leisure services will lead the way. Household income averages $61,505, as compared to the national average of $57,652. North Carolina's economy focuses on banking, technology, and pharmaceuticals.  

    When you consider the beautiful landscape, fantastic weather, and abundance of leisure activities, you may wish to change your question. Instead of asking why people are moving to North Carolina, you might ask why anyone is not. If you're ready to make a move, contact us to find that perfect house.

    How You Can Start Planning Ahead for Summer Landscaping Projects

    Summer Landscaping Raleigh

    When potential buyers arrive to tour a prospective home, the outside creates an impression within minutes. Our real estate agents know that picturesque landscaping can even raise the total value of your home. Don't wait until summer to get started on your landscaping projects. Instead, check out a few things you can do now to start the planning process.

    1. Decide What Furniture, Garden Decor, and Deck Items You Want
      Take a moment to envision your ideal outdoor spaces. What do they consist of? What items do you have, and what pieces are you lacking? Make a list of the items you'll need to complete your projects. Then, browse your preferred retailers to find pieces you like, noting the price and anticipated delivery times. This will ensure that you find options that suit your budget, and you can cater your ordering date according to the item's availability.
    1. Start Your Seedling Indoors
      If your landscaping plans involve adding new plants and flowers or growing your own vegetable garden, consider starting your own seedlings inside and transplanting them during the spring or summer months. Not only do you have control over the growing conditions, but it's typically cheaper to grow your own seedlings rather than purchasing them. You also have a wide variety of plant species to choose from, allowing you to find the best option for your landscaping, climate, and vision for your home's exterior. 
    1. Make a Plan for Spatial Limitations
      Even Raleigh homes for sale with limited outdoor space can have gorgeous outside spaces. Now is the ideal time to come up with a plan for maximizing the space that you have. Maybe you've always dreamed of a lush garden, but you're out of yard space. One solution is to add a vertical garden that takes up a small amount of your yard's square footage. Or, you might add window planter boxes. Perhaps you envision a roomy outdoor space where you can cook, eat, and relax with your family. If your current deck is too small, you might plan an expansion or decide to split your outside spaces into your front and back yards. 
    1. Research Smart Technology for Your Gardens
      If you worry that you'll forget to water your garden or just prefer to automate the process, now's the time to research and set up smart technology to make the task as simple as possible. You can invest in a smart irrigation system that adjusts its water output based on the weather and current soil conditions. Your plans might involve expanding your outdoor entertaining space. Add smart speakers and lighting so that you can quickly set the tone for your evening. 
    1. Craft a Plan of Attack for Pests
      Pests, like mosquitos, flies, and rabbits, keep you from getting optimal enjoyment from your home's outdoor areas. Decide how you want to tackle these pests. You may prefer to add vegetation that will deter the pesky creatures. For example, citronella, catnip, and marigold plants repel mosquitos. Thorny bushes help keep deer away. You can also check that you've removed any items in your yard (like standing water or decaying vegetation) that pests find attractive. Or, it may be better to enact a physical better to keep animals and neighboring pets out of your yard and garden.

    Small Design Details That Make a Difference

    Raleigh Design Details

    When you think about changing up your home decor, you may assume that only big projects can have an equally big impact. But small design details can have a much greater effect on your home's appearance than you think.

    Our real estate agents love the following small design changes that can make a big difference in your home's appearance:

    1. Upgrade your doors    
      You may not immediately think of your doors when it comes time to get creative with your home decor. But new doors can add a unique sense of style and a new architectural dimension to your home. For a simple change, paint your doors in a new color. For a greater impact, replace existing doors with something special, like one made from reclaimed wood or a reused barn door.
        
    2. Give your fireplace a boost
      If you have a fireplace that looks blah, paint its mantel in a contrasting color. You can also frame your fireplace materials like bricks. And even if you don't already have a fireplace, talk to a contractor about your options for installing one.
        
    3. Add some statement pieces
      Statement pieces can have a big impact on any room. Try looking in antique stores for items like artwork or a centerpiece bowl. This way, you'll find unique treasures that add a big dose of personality and visual interest to your home.
        
    4. Change up your lighting
      Having different types of lighting helps you create different moods, so try options like string lights, a table lamp, and a floor lamp. Turn on the string lights when you're hosting friends, use the floor lamp for everyday activities, and switch on the table lamp if you're cozying up with a book. You can also give your lamps a boost of style by adding bulbs in different shapes or designs.
        
    5. Create a gallery wall
      Strategically place photos and art on a wall to make a big visual impact in any room. You can also add a picture rail for a more permanent option that adds a polished detail all on its own. As a bonus, a picture rail also lets you avoid putting holes in your walls.
        
    6. Add texture to your walls
      Color isn't the only way to change up your walls. You can also hire a painter to use techniques that create texture on a plain wall. Or, if you'd rather, add an accent panel of stonework or mosaic tiles.
        
    7. Replace your hardware
      For a quick change, pick out new hardware on your cabinets and drawers. You'll have a large variety of options, ranging from sleek, modern-looking silver handles to intricate bronze knobs.
        
    8. Paint a focal wall
      Choose a focal wall and paint it in a color that sounds out from what's used on the other walls. For example, paint a focal wall in a striking navy blue to stand out among white walls in the room. The key is to choose a color that sharply contrasts with what's used on the other walls while making sure that the colors complement one another.
        
    9. Don't forget the simple things
      If you're stuck figuring out what changes to make, keep things simple. Add some striking throw pillows, blankets, candles, or photo frames to your decor. It's easy to change or add these items as you find new ones you love, and they can help spark further creativity.

    Real Estate Trends to Know in the New Year

    Raleigh Real Estate 2021

    Predicting the real estate market is tricky. Case in point: 2020 did not look the way our real estate agents expected it to, but the pandemic brought about a surprising real estate boom. The big question everyone seems to be asking is, will 2021 follow suit? 

    Of course, if you plan to list your Raleigh home for sale soon, you probably have a more pressing question: will 2021 be a good time to sell?

    Where We Are Today

    It's impossible to overstate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the housing market and how widely this impact continues to be felt. In a market that already had a high demand for housing and a lack of inventory, this year has seen that trend skyrocket as many sellers de-listed their homes amid pandemic fears. 

    At this point, many of those homes are appearing on the market again, leveling things out somewhat. In fact, home sales increased sharply during the autumn months (up 9.4% in September alone, according to CNBC), and the median purchase price has risen by nearly 15% year-over-year. 

    We head toward the end of 2020, still in a strong seller's market. And even as the inventory of available homes creeps upward somewhat, home prices continue to rise, and demand appears to be as strong as ever. 

    Looking to the Future

    Keeping in mind what we've seen over the past year, we expect the year ahead will continue to offer great opportunities for sellers. Although demand can't sustain forever at its current level, we expect it to level off slowly. Here's what else we predict for the 2021 housing market:

    • Home prices will continue to rise.
      It seems certain home prices will continue their trend upward in 2021, at least in most U.S. cities. That includes Raleigh, where the average home sale has increased 10.5% year-over-year according to Redfin, and most homes sell for up to 3% above listing price. 

    • Inventory will remain tight.
      Inventory is the "supply" side of supply and demand. It essentially refers to the total number of homes on the market at any given time. That number declined over the course of 2020, and although we expect to see it rebound slightly in the next year as many sellers re-list their homes, inventory will almost certainly remain tight in 2021, fueling high prices. 

    • Demand will remain high.
      Many people who wanted to buy a home in 2020 weren't able to do so because of the pandemic. Expect a lot of those individuals to resume their efforts in 2021, leading demand to remain high, at least for the time being. With strong demand, we expect home sales to increase, or at the very least remain steady. 

    • Mortgage rates will hover around 3%.
      We expect to see mortgage rates remain fairly consistent going into the next year. When you consider that we left October 2020 at a record low of just 2.8% for a 30-year fixed home loan, that puts buyers in a pretty healthy place. We may see very slight increases but expect mortgage rates to remain around 3%. 

    Contact us today to learn more about buying or selling a home in 2021. We understand that we're living through uncertain times, and we're here to help every step of the way. Whether you're on the hunt for your dream home or are getting ready to sell, we think 2021 will offer an amazing opportunity.

    New month, new house! Or at least that's the goal, right?

    Our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents have listed fantastic homes in cities and suburbs all over the Triangle region.

    Take advantage of the weekend ahead to plan visits to our agents' area open houses. You're going to want to see the homes you've been eyeing online up close to get a better idea of what they hold.

    Plan to set aside a chunk of time at each house so that you may tour it inside and out at your own pace (twice if you like) and then take a drive around the neighborhood and community. Knowledge is the name of the real estate game, and you're going to want to gather as much information as possible to decide if you will make an offer.

    Also, don't forget the Triangle Parade of Homes is still underway granting you access to a fantastic collection of newly built area homes.

    At HPW, we are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients, while doing our part to limit the spread of the COVID-19.

    HPW Open Houses | July 11 - 12

    Have you decided to call the Triangle home? You've made a good choice. Now, let's find you a house.

    With well-lauded local cities and towns, there are plenty of communities and neighborhoods to consider as you narrow down your list of wants and needs.

    Urban Living

    Raleigh and Durham offer burgeoning downtowns with developing cityscapes and urban convenience. 

    Acclaimed restaurants and bars and cultural and sports venues are located only sidewalks apart offering goings-on before and after dark.

    You'll find an array of newly debuted luxury townhomes, light-filled condos, and historical and new construction homes to consider as your own.

    Suburban Setting

    From Hillsborough and Mebane in the West to Zebulon and even Goldsboro in the East, you can pick from a number of Triangle area suburbs perfectly situated near main thoroughfares offering small-town living and demanded commuter convenience.

    Main Street towns like Apex, Cary, Morrisville and Wake Forest make for ideal places to plant roots and grow your family just beyond the hustle and bustle of bigger city life.

     You can select from golf-course communities, mature neighborhoods, new master-planned developments, contemporary townhomes and much more.

    Start Your House Hunt

    All of our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents are ready to help you find the home you seek. In fact, you can meet a few in person this weekend at our area open houses.

    Haven't found your dream home yet? This could be the weekend. 

    Our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents have listed fantastic homes in cities and suburbs all over the Triangle region. From Alamance County in the West all the way to Wayne County in the East, we have the homes you seek.

    Take advantage of the weekend ahead to plan visits to our agents' area open houses. You're going to want to see the homes you've been eyeing online up close to get a better idea of what they hold.

    Plan to set aside a chunk of time at each house so that you may tour it inside and out at your own pace (twice if you like) and then take a drive around the neighborhood and community. Knowledge is the name of the real estate game, and you're going to want to gather as much information as possible to decide if you will make an offer.

    HPW Virtual Tours | May 30 - 31

    It's the last weekend in May which means two things: (1) it's the final weekend to submit a photo of your favorite senior for a chance to win, and (2) it's a great weekend to go house hunting!

    We have partnered with WRAL TV to make a Salute to Seniors for the Class of 2020. You can submit a photo you've taken of your favorite high school or college senior, then tune in to WRAL as they showcase this year's graduating class. One winner will be randomly selected to receive a $2,000 travel voucher to celebrate with your graduate. Five additional winners will be randomly selected each week to receive a $100 gift card to Empire Eats or Local 22. The contest ends at 11:59 p.m. on May 31st which is this Sunday so be sure to get those photos in!

    After you're done submitting your favorite photo of your senior, head over to hpw.com/virtual and take some virtual tours of the beautiful homes our HPW real estate agents have listed. With houses of all sizes, price points and locations, there is bound to be one that catches your eye.

    Virtual Tours May 23-24

    Memorial Day weekend is upon us and Mother Nature looks like she is going to cooperate! (Bye, bye rain!) While this year's weekend may look a little different than previous years, we hope that everyone is able to pay tribute to our nation's brave heroes and then enjoy lots of fun in the sun.

    While you're out enjoying the long weekend under Carolina blue skies, why not do a little house hunting right from the comfort of your own home. Maybe it's time to upgrade your backyard, entertainment space and look for a home with a built-in grill and room for dining. Or maybe the kids have been begging to live in a neighborhood with a community pool. 

    With houses in all shapes and sizes in highly demanded locations and neighborhoods, our agents' virtual tours are worth a look!

    Our HPW real estate agents are ready to (virtually) show you around the beautiful homes they've listed. For even more virtual tours of our listings, head over to hpw.com/virtual.

    ICYMI: Our CEO, David Jones, recently talked with WRAL about how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted (or slight lack thereof) the real estate market here in the Triangle.

    Real estate is still moving as we are now in the midst of the spring market. In fact, the demand for homes is exceeding the amount of inventory in our market. And as always, we are here to help! 

    With that being said, we continue to make the safety and well-being of our agents and clients our top priority. We will work to ensure that all possible safety measures, and precautions, are being taken. We are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients while doing our part to limit the spread of the COVID-19.

    HPW Luxury | Most Expensive Homes Sold in the Triangle

    When it comes to selling luxury homes, Coldwell Banker is the global leader with a program that redefines the world of luxury real estate marketing. The prestige of the Coldwell Banker name, state-of-the-art technology and one of real estate's most robust global networks comprised of over 92,000 agents in 3,000 offices spanning over 44 countries, it should come as no surprise that Coldwell Banker is the #1 company when it comes to buying and selling luxury real estate. So, when it comes to buying and selling luxury real estate in the Triangle, there is only one company that truly knows what it means to lead the way: Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston. As the #1 real estate company in the Triangle, CBHPW sells more luxury real estate than any other company.

    The Triangle Business Journal just released the list of the top 25 most expensive homes sold in the Triangle over the past 12 months and nine of those transactions had at least one Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston agent involved. Seven of those homes were listed by an HPW agent and three of those transactions had an HPW agent on the buy side. John Young and Leslie Young of The Young Team, listed five of the top 25 homes in the luxurious North Raleigh neighborhood of Avalaire. Rounding out this extraordinary list of homes sold in the Triangle were The Ida Terbet Group, Dennis Igboko, Kathleen Olechovsky and The Jim Allen Group and Jodie Luke, who represented both sides of the transaction for eleventh most expensive home sold.

    Take a look at these absolutely stunning luxury homes that our HPW agents helped sell this past year.

    HPW Open Houses | March 21-22

    Open House March 21-22We here at Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston make the safety and well-being of our agents and clients our top priority. We will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and work to ensure that all possible safety measures and precautions are being taken. We are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients, while doing our part to limit the spread of the COVID-19.

    In order to protect both our clients and agents, we are asking everyone to take precautionary measures:

    Wash your hands – and other hygienic practices

    Soap is the very best preventative for communicating the virus - so use it.  Wash your hands regularly, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water.  If you can't wash your hands, the next best thing is to use an anti-bacterial wipe or gel both before, and after, you come into contact with other people, objects, or surfaces. Try to avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. If you sneeze or cough, do it into a tissue, then throw away the tissue, and then wash your hands or wipe them down.

    Keep your distance – even from your agent!

    We are all about the practice of "social distancing."

    Use video conferencing as much as possible

    You, your agent, and anyone else you're working with on your transaction should try to communicate as much as possible by videoconference rather than in-person meetings, just to limit the amount of interaction you have with other people. Facetime, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat video, Skype and Zoom are some of the video tools available to use.

    Take precautions on showings and open houses

    At this point, we see no reason to discontinue showings, or open houses, so long as you follow fundamental distancing and hygienic protocols. Try to follow these guidelines:

    • Again, keep your distance, even if it seems unfriendly
    • Remember: No shaking hands when you meet!
    • Drive your own car to showings, rather than traveling with the agent in his or her car
    • Minimize touching surfaces in houses
    • Bring paper towels, tissues, or disposable gloves with you to hold when you open doors or touch surfaces.
    • Try to wash, or wipe down, your hands on the way in and the way out.
    • At the open house, keep your distance from other visitors and let the hosting agent sign you in, rather than handle a clipboard or tablet.

    If you're not feeling well, or are part of the "high-risk" demographic, please stay home

    If you're not feeling well with any kind of cough or fever, please stay home. At this point, there is no need to take chances or put others at risk. This is especially true if you are "high-risk" – if you are over the age of 60 or have any pre-existing conditions you should reduce, if not, eliminate all outside contact as much as possible. 

    Again, we are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients and are here to help you in your next real estate transaction, while doing our part to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.

    We here at Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston make the safety and well-being of our agents and clients our top priority. We will continue to closely monitor the coronavirus outbreak and work to ensure that all possible safety measures and precautions are being taken. We are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients while doing our part to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

    In order to protect both our clients and agents, we are asking everyone to take precautionary measures:

    Wash your hands – and other hygienic practices

    Soap is the very best preventative for communicating the virus, so use it.  Wash your hands regularly, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water.  If you can't wash your hands, the next best thing is to use an anti-bacterial wipe or gel both before and after you come into contact with other people, objects, or surfaces. And try to avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. If you sneeze or cough, do it into a tissue, then throw away the tissue, then wash your hands or wipe them down.

    Keep your distance – even from your agent!

    We are all about the practice of "social distancing.

    Use video conferencing as much as possible

    You and your agent – and anyone else you're working with on your transaction should try to communicate as much as possible by videoconference rather than in-person meetings, just to limit the amount of interaction you have with other people. Facetime, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat video, Skype and Zoom are some of the video tools available to use.

    Take precautions on showings and open houses

    At this point, we see no reason to discontinue showings or open houses so long as you follow fundamental distancing and hygienic protocols.  Try to follow these guidelines:

    • Again, keep your distance, even if it seems unfriendly
    • Remember: No shaking hands when you meet!
    • Drive your own car to showings, rather than traveling with the agent in his or her car
    • Minimize touching of surfaces in houses
    • Bring paper towels, tissues or disposable gloves with you to hold when you open doors or touch surfaces.
    • Try to wash or wipe down your hands on the way in and the way out.
    • At the open house, keep your distance from other visitors and let the hosting agent sign you in rather than handle a clipboard or tablet.

    If you're not feeling well or are part of the "high-risk" demographic, please stay home

    If you're not feeling well with any kind of cough or fever, please stay home. At this point, there is no need to take chances or put others at risk. This is especially true if you are "high-risk" – if you are over the age of 60 or have any pre-existing conditions you should reduce, if not, eliminate all outside contact as much as possible. 

    Again, we are committed to maintaining reliable service to our clients and are here to help you in your next real estate transaction while doing our part to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

    HPW Open Houses | February 29 – March 1

    Open House Feb 29 - March 1

    Attention home buyers – this is THE weekend for you to find your new home and we're ready to help.

    Our in-the-know real estate agents will be hosting open houses this Saturday and Sunday in nearly every corner of this prospering Triangle region and Goldsboro, too. It's time to map out a plan to make the most of this fall weekend. 

     

    Open House Tips For Buyers 

    It doesn't matter if you're entering the second month of your house hunt or are just getting started, you're going to want to make the most of your open house visits. 

    Do Some Digging 

    Power up your computer or charge up your Smart Phone and start "digging" for information on the homes you plan to visit. Access a home valuation estimate on our HPW.com website to review a comprehensive report with property details, recent area sales, and more useful information for each of the homes you like. 

    Take Your Time

    Give yourself ample time to tour the homes you visit. Walkthrough each home with the onsite agent and then go back through on your own. Take time to step into the backyard or stroll down the street. Buying a home is a big deal, and you're going to want to gather every detail possible to make an educated decision. 

    Curb Your Enthusiasm 

    Attending an open house is exciting, especially when you think the home may be perfect for you and your family. Do your best to remain cool, calm, and collected as you take your tour to ensure you see the home as it really is, without the rose-colored lenses.

    Are you out and about chasing down the best Black Friday deals in town? Scoring holiday gifts for your loved ones and friends (and yourself) will be a fantastic feat, but imagine the joy of finding your new home will bring.

    You may have heard that spring and summer are the time to buy, but there are many reasons you should consider house hunting during the cold winter months.

    Buying A Home During The Winter Months

    Less Competition

    It's common for buyer-competition to thin out in the winter as many people prefer to house hunt during the warmer seasons when the school year is waning.

    More Motivated Sellers

    Winter home sellers are often more motivated to close a deal than those who sell during the peak season. They may be relocating for a job promotion, hoping to get a sale squared away before the new year, or simply ready to get their real estate journey underway.

    Discover And Uncover      

    Winter weather can tax a home. From the roof and gutters to the HVAC, plumbing and drafty doors, cold temperatures may reveal issues that you would otherwise have overlooked in warmer months.

    Start Your Search

    Let our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents help you find the home you seek. Our listing agents will be happy to host you at their open houses this Saturday and Sunday.
