Four Reasons to Sell This Winter

Maybe Winder is the best time for you to consider selling?

With Demand remaining high in our area combined with low inventory which continues to drop, this winter might just be a great combination of factors making it an ideal time for you to sell. 

A balanced market will sit at six months of inventory.  Less than six months of inventory and you start heading into a sellers market.  Lower the inventory the greater the sellers market.   In Kootenai County, our inventory sits at less than 3 months in most price sectors.  A large number of price sectors are sitting at just one month.   Low inventory with high demand will increase market values and your list price.  Interest rates continue to remain low which continues to create a tremendous amount of buyers.      

Winter is often thought a difficult time to sell, but in this buying climate it creates a perfect storm for selling!  In the winter months there is even less competition and this increases demand even further.  Buyers out looking in the cold and snow are much more serious buyers too! 

If you are interested in knowing more about the inventory levels in your neighborhood or more about our market and in determining your next step, let’s connect, we would love to assist in keeping you up on the market.

Washi Tape Hacks to Beautify Your Rental

Washi tape is a wonderful gift from the Land of the Rising Sun. Traditionally, washi is a type of paper made from tree bark or various other plant cellulose. It is most often used for its aesthetic appeal, but does have some other applications. Since it hit the shelves, it has been a God-send to interior designers and DIY-ers alike. It is a cheap way to have all the color and fun with none of the commitment.

As a new homeowner its really exciting thinking about all of the remodeling and designing you want to do to the interior. But then there’s the anxiety of choosing a color or style. Will we like it? Is it too bold? Will it work with our furniture? Thankfully you can try out some different schemes or patterns in your home without having to worry about the work of changing it. Washi tape is a great way to test the waters and try on different ideas you might have had. Or, maybe you’re like me and you want to change your entire house every few weeks and need something that will be easy to change too. 

As a renter you have probably encountered the frustration of not being able to decorate, paint and design your space to your heart’s content. Typically, landlords will require that tenants do nothing to damage or change the home in any way. Other times, renters will avoid putting holes in the walls to ensure that they get their entire deposit at the end of the lease. Both are valid reasons to want to find a temporary work around that will leave your rental feeling like home, and your landlord happy. Here ares some ways to use washi tape to incorporate some beauty in your space and leave the walls good as new when you  leave. 

 

Accent Walls

Accent walls are a great way to add a huge pop of color to a bland room. They make a huge statement and fortunately with washi tape, they aren’t permanent. 

 

 

 

Headboards

It might not seem like a big deal, but a beautiful headboard can really make a room. While some are just part of the bed frame, others are mounted on the wall. That’s where the washi tape comes in for a damage free , bold statement. 

 

   

 

Nurseries and Play Rooms

It seems like kids always want to have bright pink or blue or other crazy colors for their bedrooms. Washi tape allows for all sorts of color and whimsy without having to consider how many coats of white paint it will take to cover up that Frozen mural

 

 

Wall Art

As if the pictures didn’t already speak for themselves. Washi tape is a great way to add a bold statement to your rooms. These murals provide great conversation pieces when placed in main areas. Just make sure if you’re doing something geometric, you have some patience and a ruler, and a ton of coffee.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Accents

Another great thing about using this tape throughout your home is that you can add small pops of color or detail that really personalize your area in a big way.
