How Staging Your Redlands CA Home Can Improve Sales Outcomes

The Redlands CA real estate market continues to deliver strong results. If you’re looking to sell and want to get the best outcome possible, we recommend staging your home. What is staging, and how can it improve sales outcomes? We’re glad you asked!

A Brief Definition

Most people know that it’s important to freshen up a home before putting it on the market. A fresh coat of paint, a new roof, or some new landscaping are common pre-market improvements. The idea here is to make the home as attractive as possible to prospective buyers.

Staging takes this principle much further. A professional home stager will come into your home and make it look as attractive as possible. This can involve temporary “staged” furniture and décor items as well as cleaning and decluttering. There are degrees of staging, and a fully staged home will look like the ones you see on those home shows on TV.

How Staging Improves Sales Outcomes

Homes that are staged typically sell faster. Often they sell for a bit more, too. Why is this? It’s simple. Buyers don’t want to buy your house, with your stuff and pictures of your grandma on the wall. They want to buy a house that they can make theirs.

Staging a home de-personalizes it and presents it as the best that it could be. Prospective buyers see what the house could be when they move in, instead of what it is right now. It’s not hard to see why this results in quicker sales at higher prices: you’ve motivated the buyer in a special way.

Outdoor Touches That Take Your Luxury Redlands Property to the Next Level

Discerning homeowners know that luxury real estate isn’t just about square footage. These days there are plenty of large homes that are far from luxurious. What they have in square footage they sorely lack in fit, finish, and other touches of luxury.

No, true luxury real estate is luxurious through and through. The materials and finishes throughout the home — interior and exterior — exude class. The same is true of outdoor living spaces and landscaping. Your outdoor scene needs to match the indoor in terms of quality and appearance. With that in mind, here are a couple outdoor touches that can take your Redlands CA luxury home to the next level.

Play with Fire

Spruce up your outdoor entertaining space with by playing with fire! One option is a custom built-in fire pit. A far cry from the cheap standalone pieces you’ll find at the big box stores, your new fire pit will provide beautiful centerpiece for your outdoor living space. Build it into your hardscape with pavers, and surround it with lush outdoor chairs for maximum comfort.

Another luxurious option is an outdoor (or indoor-outdoor) fireplace like these. Building a fireplace into an exterior wall in this way is simply out of reach for non-luxury buyers. Installing one at your home sets your property apart.

Of course, be fire smart: check your local ordinances, and stick to propane or natural gas.

Or Play with Food

Another way to increase the luxury of your outdoor space is an outdoor kitchen. Imagine the parties you could throw on your patio with a full or partial kitchen just steps away. Custom-design your outdoor cooking space with exactly what you need for entertaining. And who knows? Between your outdoor kitchen and fire feature, your guests may never want to come inside!

2 Tips for Selling Your Luxury Real Estate Property Faster

By most measures, the US economy is currently quite strong, and that includes the real estate market. You’ve surely heard tales of people listing their homes and selling them within 24 hours, above asking price. If that’s happened for you, congratulations! Also, this probably isn’t the blog post for you.

Sometimes, though, the luxury real estate market can be a little bit more…finicky. This makes sense: a higher quality and more expensive product attracts a more discerning (even picky) clientele. If you’re looking to sell your Redlands CA luxury home quickly, here are two strategies that can help.

Check Your Curb Appeal

First, check your curb appeal. Your luxury home may be amazing on the inside, but if it looks a little less than stellar from the curb, it’s going to be a tough sell. What’s true on every home renovation show ever is true in the Redlands CA luxury real estate market, too.

If you’re not sure about your home’s curb appeal, consult with an experienced real estate agent. He or she will let you know if your front elevation needs a little sprucing up

Leave the Staging to the Pros

Staging a home is a great way to increase the sale value of any property, luxury or not. Yes, it costs a bit, but the cost is certainly worth it if staging can increase your sale price. (And it almost always does.)

There are other advantages, too. Professional home stagers know what works well for buyers. You may love that old sofa or those family photos, but buyers won’t. Bring in a luxury home stager to make your home look like what buyers want, and you’re likely to speed up your luxury real estate sale.

Trends in Luxury Real Estate: Smart Home Technology

Smart home technology has hit the mainstream with services like Google Home, Apple HomeKit, and Amazon Alexa. Today we’re looking at how the smart home trend is showing up in the luxury real estate market. Whether you’re buying, selling, or remodeling luxury real estate in Redland, CA, you’ll benefit from learning what’s happening in the luxury smart home tech space.

What Is Smart Home Technology?

Smart home technology is a broad term, encompassing a wide range of intelligent, internet-connected home devices. Smart devices can be personalized, automated, controlled remotely (via smartphone), and programmed to work in tandem.

Millions of Americans are using some form of smart home tech. Most rely on services from one of the “Big Three” to control it: Amazon, Apple, or Google. These are respectable services, but they have limits. Most users are just running a simple setup involving perhaps automated thermostat and lighting changes.

What About Luxury Smart Home Technology?

The Big Three may be the most recognizable names in smart home, but the luxury real estate market is different. There are so many awesome innovations available for those with a little extra in the bank. Lutron offers advanced lighting control with serious customization. Crestron creates more full-service systems that can control lights, A/V, motorized shades, home security, and more.

On the home entertainment front, don’t settle for a smart TV or speaker. Real luxury looks more like a whole-home media server system from Kaleidescape.

It’s also crucial that all your smart devices work together from one central platform. There are several luxury smart home interfaces that boast this capability, such as Bang & Olufsen’s BeoLink platform.

Conclusion

Smart home tech is a great addition to your Redlands CA luxury real estate property for all sorts of reasons. It can improve your ambiance, save you time, and increase the value of a home you’re looking to sell.

Trends in Luxury Real Estate: High-End Kitchen Appliances Your Luxury Redlands Home Needs

Whether you’re buying, selling, or simply owning, you know that the luxury real estate market is competitive— especially in the Redlands, California, area. It’s tough to stand out in a crowd of people who all have sufficient means to do the same.

One area that simply can’t be overlooked in your Redlands luxury home is the kitchen. An otherwise great home with a dated or underwhelming kitchen is a tough sell—and a tough buy, too.

Wherever you are in the home-buying journey, it’s important to get the kitchen right. Let’s look at some of the high-end kitchen appliance trends happening now in luxury real estate.

It’s All About Customization and Integration

It’s the fine details that really set your luxury home apart. Nowhere is that more true than the kitchen. The nicest appliances on offer at the big box hardware stores simply won’t cut it.

An integrated or built-in fridge that can be customized to match the finishes in your kitchen is a must. Offerings from Viking and Sub-Zeroare worth your consideration.

Insist on Professional Grade

Of course, you’ll need a professional quality range and oven. Wall ovens integrate directly into the wall and are placed at a much more friendly level than cheaper floor ovens. Look for a model with multiple cooking methods and Wi-Fi. The convenience of getting the oven preheated from the other room (or even on your way home!) cannot be overstated.

Several high-end companies (including Thermador) are selling ranges in 48- and 60-inch varieties, with matching vent hoods of course. Thermador offers a 60-inch model complete with a steam oven and warming drawer. In 2018 the company introduced induction cooktops and a hybrid gas/induction range as well.

Conclusion

Wherever you are in your luxury home journey, luxury kitchen upgrades will help you on your way.
