Your Home: 3 Easy New Year’s Resolutions

Your Home: 3 Easy New Year’s Resolutions

It is that time of year when we reflect on the past year and create a list of New Year’s resolutions. The most popular resolutions are typically, weight loss, save money, spend more time with family, but how often to we include a list for our home? Here are 3 easy New Year’s resolutions for your home.

1.) Safety Check: The New Year is the perfect time to do a safety check around your house to make sure there aren’t any hazards that could harm you or your guests. That includes making long overdue repairs, checking your house for leaks, carbon monoxide, and replacing the batteries in your smoke detectors.

 

2.) Pare Down: With all the excess of gifts over the holidays, you may have found that more things came into your home than out. But in the spirit of cutting clutter, set up an “out with the old, in with the new” system. Every time something new comes in, something old goes out. That counts for everything, from books to clothes to gadgets. The more stuff that comes in, the more stuff that accumulates and needs to be organized. Go room-by-room eliminating anything old that you don’t use or absolutely love and donate it to a worthy charity. Less mess means less stress!

 

2.) Store More: We’ve all heard the term “a place for everything and everything in its place.” The same simple principle we tell our children in regard to putting their toys away should also apply to us adults as well! There are literally hundreds of creative storage options from behind the door hangers to under the bed storage bins to vertical shelving corner niches. Thinking outside the box and repurposing one storage item to serve the needs of another is a life saver. Over the door shoe organizers can do more than hold shoes. They make handy holders for everything from jewelry and makeup and more in a bathroom.

 

Regardless of what your resolutions are for the New Year, don’t forget to include your home in your planning process. And if buying or selling a home in 2019 is on your list, give me a call today!

Your Referrals Support PCH

Your Referrals Support PCH The voss team supports PCH

Since 1992 RE/MAX agents across the U.S. and Canada have been partners with Children’s Miracle Network. In an effort to support our local CMN Hospital, Phoenix Children’s Hospital The Voss Team will make a donation, when you refer your friends and family to us. That’s pretty easy, right?

Every minute, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment. Each donation helps fund pediatric medical equipment, treatments, charitable care and other healthcare services for local CMN hospitals. As the contributions continue to grow, we are able to aid a larger number of sick and injured children, which is something we take great pride in being able to do for our community

Here’s how it works. If you send us a referral for a home sale or purchase, and that sale closes, we will make a donation to Phoenix Children’s Hospital in your name. We will post on our blog and on Facebook that your referral was instrumental in making that donation happen.

It is as simple as that.

We are so grateful for your referrals. Let’s do some good work together and make a difference in our community. Call us at 602-697-0730 or email at robertavoss@remax.net.

REMAX Professionals Proudly Celebrates 25 Years of MiraclesEvery minute, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment; every 30 seconds, a RE/MAX agent helps someone find their perfect place. Since 1992, RE/MAX agents and brokers have invested in the well-being of their local communities by raising more than $150 million for 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

In 2016, RE/MAX Affiliates in the U.S. and Canada donated over $10 million to 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through the Miracle Home and Miracle Property programs. Here at RE/MAX Professionals, our agents donated over $40,000 to our local Phoenix Children’s Hospital in 2016.

“Each year I am more inspired by RE/MAX associates who support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” said John Lauck, the organization’s president and CEO. “They provide much-needed donations to help hospitals care for sick and injured kids in their own communities. August’s Month of Miracles is a time for us to celebrate RE/MAX associates for 23 years of miracles. We are grateful for all they do.”

As you know, The Voss Team is an active contributor to CMN and we look forward to participating in the Month of Miracles One Million Penny challenge, golf tournaments and other activities that raise money for PCH. We are very proud to have been a part of the overall contribution in 2016, and we have our wonderful clients to thank for this prestigious recognition. Thank you for helping us support the children in our community. Here is to celebrating another twenty-five years of miracles!

Strong March Home Sales, Low Inventory Means Tougher Market for Buyers

Strong March Home Sales, Low Inventory Means Tougher Market for Buyers Strong March Home Sales, Low Inventory Means Tougher Market for Buyers

March launched the home-buying season with post-recession records for increasing home sales and prices and decreasing inventory, according to this month’s RE/MAX National Housing Report that surveys 53 metro areas.

“We expect a seasonal uptick in sales this time of year and March certainly met and somewhat exceeded that expectation,” said Dave Liniger, RE/MAX CEO, Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder“We don’t anticipate the tightening inventory to ease up in most markets until new home construction can catch up to its pre-recession pace. Until then, sellers will enjoy a fast-paced market and buyers will need to work with their agents to get in the right home.”

Based on the rate of home sales in March, the Months’ Supply of Inventory was 2.7, compared to February 2017 at 3.6 and March 2016 at 3.2. This is the first time in the history of the RE/MAX National Housing Report that months’ supply has hit below 3.0. A 6.0-month supply indicates a market balanced equally between buyers and sellers. In March 2017, 52 of the 53 metro areas surveyed reported a months’ supply of less than 6.0, which is typically considered a seller’s market.
