Discover expert tips for successfully leasing your property in Orlando, Florida

Security deposits can sometimes be a controversial topic, but they’re necessary for keeping a property in tip-top shape. Security deposits are enforced for residents in order to protect the space, while also giving you some motivation to keep your residence in good condition. It’s never fun paying a fee upfront for damage that hasn’t happened, but receiving the money back after a harmless stay is encouraging! As a property management company in Orlando Florida, we want to give you your money back at the end of your lease. With these expert tips, you can avoid damage and have a good chance of recouping the fee you paid upfront.

Read Your Lease Thoroughly reviewing your lease is a great starting point.

Your lease should have clear information on the expectations in place to receive your security deposit back. It could be helpful to make a checklist and hang it on your fridge, so, throughout your residence, you remember what needs to be done in order to regain your deposit.

Document Your Space Be sure to take photos and videos of everything.

This content should include date and timestamps. Having physical proof of your space being neat and undamaged will only benefit you. If you notice something is damaged upfront, be sure to alert your landlord so you aren’t charged for those damages.

Clean Up

A deep, thorough cleaning of your space before you move out will give you a good chance of recouping your deposit. Be sure to wipe down inside the refrigerator and oven, as those two spaces are typically forgotten. Other than that, general dusting, mopping, nail hole patching, and vacuuming will ensure your home is in good shape.

Repair Damage Sometimes, things happen that are out of our control.

If you have any damage at all, make sure to repair it before you move out. Work with your landlord to determine if on-site maintenance staff can fix the damage or if an outside vendor needs to take on the job. It’s always best to fix the damage immediately instead of waiting until your move-out date!

Security deposits are set in place to protect properties from long-term damage.

By following these expert tips, your odds of receiving your deposit are high. At RE/MAX Heritage, our top priority is to keep clients satisfied with their place of residence.

Home sales in February grew 1.6%

Home sales in February grew 1.6%

Home sales in February grew 1.6%

February Nar Sales Report

WASHINGTON (March 28, 2024) – Pending home sales in February grew 1.6%, according to the National Association of REALTORS®️. The Midwest and South posted monthly gains in transactions while the Northeast and West recorded losses. All four U.S. regions registered year-over-year decreases.

The Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI)* – a forward-looking indicator of home sales based on contract signings – increased to 75.6 in February. Year over year, pending transactions were down 7.0%. An index of 100 is equal to the level of contract activity in 2001.

“While modest sales growth might not stir excitement, it shows slow and steady progress from the lows of late last year,” said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. “Ongoing job gains are clearly increasing demand along with more inventory.”

Pending Home Sales Regional Breakdown

The Northeast PHSI decreased 0.3% from last month to 63.4, a decline of 9.0% from February 2023. The Midwest index soared 10.6% to 81.6 in February, down 2.5% from one year ago.

The South PHSI rose 1.1% to 89.5 in February, falling 8.5% from the prior year. The West index fell 6.5% in February to 57.1, down 7.9% from February 2023.

“The high-cost regions in the Northeast and West experienced pullbacks due to affordability challenges,” added Yun. “Home prices rising faster than income growth is not healthy and adds challenges for first-time buyers.”

Yun further noted, “There will be a steady rise in inventory from recent growth in home building. Additionally, many sellers, who delayed listing in the past two years, will begin to put their homes on the market to move to a different home that better fits their new life circumstances – such as changes in family composition, jobs, commuting patterns and retirees wanting to be closer to their grandkids.”

About the National Association of REALTORS®️

The National Association of REALTORS®️ is America’s largest trade association, representing 1.5 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries. The term REALTOR®️ is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®️ and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.

*The Pending Home Sales Index is a leading indicator for the housing sector, based on pending sales of existing homes. A sale is listed as pending when the contract has been signed but the transaction has not closed, though the sale usually is finalized within one or two months of signing.

Pending contracts are good early indicators of upcoming sales closings. However, the amount of time between pending contracts and completed sales is not identical for all home sales. Variations in the length of the process from pending contract to closed sale can be caused by issues such as buyer difficulties with obtaining mortgage financing, home inspection problems, or appraisal issues.

The index is based on a sample that covers about 40% of multiple listing service data each month. In developing the model for the index, it was demonstrated that the level of monthly sales-contract activity parallels the level of closed existing-home sales in the following two months.

An index of 100 is equal to the average level of contract activity during 2001, which was the first year to be examined. By coincidence, the volume of existing-home sales in 2001 fell within the range of 5.0 to 5.5 million, which is considered normal for the current U.S. population.

Getting Your House Ready for Spring Listing: Essential Steps 

Getting Your House Ready for Spring Listing: Essential Steps 

Getting Your House Ready for Spring Listing: Essential Steps 

If you’re considering selling your house this spring, now is the opportune moment to begin preparing it. As the market gears up for its busiest season, ensuring your house stands out among the competition is crucial.

Here are some essential tips to help you get your house market-ready:

Declutter and Organize: First impressions count, and a cluttered house can easily deter potential buyers. Before listing, take the time to declutter and organize each room. Decluttering goes beyond mere tidying up; it involves creating a sense of space and openness that allows potential buyers to envision themselves living in your home. According to Moving.com, decluttering and organizing your space significantly appeal to potential buyers, making the home appear larger and cleaner, which can attract more buyers.

Deep Clean Your Kitchen and Bathrooms: The kitchen and bathrooms are focal points for many buyers and can influence their overall opinion of the house. Ensure these spaces dazzle by giving them a thorough deep cleaning. Pay attention to details like scrubbing grout lines, polishing fixtures, and decluttering countertops. A sparkling kitchen and bathroom can leave a lasting positive impression on potential buyers.

Maintain Your Yard: Your home’s exterior is the first thing potential buyers see, so creating a good impression from the moment they arrive is vital. A well-maintained yard not only enhances curb appeal but also shows buyers that the home has been well taken care of. Take the time to spruce up your yard by mowing the lawn, trimming bushes, and clearing away any debris or dead plants. A beautifully landscaped front yard can elevate an ordinary house into a charming home and will help homes sell faster and for more money, as per U.S. News.

Find a Listing Agent: A skilled listing agent is your partner in minimizing stress when selling your home. Lean on your agent for advice on decluttering, staging, and enhancing your home’s appeal to potential buyers. Their insights into market trends and recommendations for reliable contractors and stagers are invaluable. As Realtor.com suggests, a good listing agent will help you price your home, recommend a photographer and stager to make it look its best, and put your home on the multiple listing service.

 

In summary, decluttering, deep cleaning, and tidying up your house can establish a welcoming atmosphere that appeals to buyers and enhances your chances of a successful sale. Reach out to a reputable real estate agent for guidance on preparing your house for sale this spring.
