Designing Your Dream Backyard

While summer is well underway, there is still plenty of time to create a magical backyard that you love to spend time in, and there is certainly enough time to start planning for next year. But unless you’re a gardener or a landscape mastermind, you may not know how to design a backyard that really wows. Here are some tips for backyard design, as well as a look into the Hayden Homes’ Dream Backyard Giveaway.

The Path to Designing your Dream BackyardHow to Design Your Dream Backyard

A great article published online at HGTV.com provides some tips for designing your dream backyard and creating a landscape plan. Some of the biggest takeaways from the article include:

  • Start with the big areas. The article recommends that a homeowner start by planning the size and shape of the biggest areas of the backyard first, such as lawn or courtyard. This will help you to understand how the rest of your yard will be shaped.
  • Understand your personal preferences. When creating spaces, you have a choice between straight lines or curved, symmetrical or asymmetrical designs, circles or squares, etc. While the shape of your home and the amount of space you’re working with may influence these choices, your personal preference will likely have the biggest effect on this decision. Look through landscaping and gardening magazines and pay attention to what draws your eye and affection the most.
  • Keep things balanced and bold. As you’re planning your landscape, you want to keep things balanced, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a little bold, too. One recommendation from landscape architect Gary Menendez is to soften straight lines with flowers or lush plants, and to make curved garden pop by putting in an herb garden in a geometrical or sharp-line pattern.

Of course, there’s always the option of hiring a professional, too! With a little research and planning, though, you should be able to create a beautiful landscape on a budget.

Best and Worst Time to Sell a House

Best Time to Put Your Home on the MarketIf you are thinking about selling your home in the Pacific Northwest, you should learn when the best or the worst time to list your home, in order to sell as quickly as possible and upgrade to a new home. According to a recent article in MarketWatch, listing your home at the wrong time could mean difficulty selling, and it could also mean that you are not taking advantage of the recent research on homebuyer trends. The article discusses a new study conducted by Zillow which argues that the best time to put your home on the market is the two-week period from May 1 through May 15. What else do you need to know about listing homes for sale and getting your property sold?

Listing Your Home During the First Half of May Could Mean a Quicker Sale and Higher Profit

According to the Zillow study, homeowners who list their properties for sale during the first two weeks of May this year are likely to see a couple of major benefits: these properties “sell on average two weeks faster and for $2,400 more.” In other words, timing impacts the time it takes to sell the home, as well as the profit on your investment. The Zillow study reached these calculations by analyzing home-buying trends in the 24 largest real estate markets in the country.

Why is Early May the Prime Time to List Your Home for Sale?

First, consider a first-time purchaser who wants to buy a property that is ready for move-in. As the study highlights, by May, many of those buyers may be in a position where they have already submitted multiple unsuccessful bids and want to move quickly on a property. In such situations, those potential buyers may be most likely to put in a high offer during the first two weeks of May and, in fact, may ultimately spend more than they wanted to as they engage in competition and/or rush to finish the deal before the summer begins.

Listing Over the Weekend for the Best Premiums and Fastest Sales

Many of these potential home buyers we mentioned above are eager to move on a property. Moreover, they want to move in before summer when kids are on vacation from school and moving prices climb. While a lot of people search for homes on websites like Zillow everyday, sellers should also think carefully about the day that is best to list the property. In addition to planning for a listing in early May, you may sell your home even faster and for a higher premium if you list over the weekend. More potential buyers are searching for homes on the weekends, and they are visiting more properties and open houses.

What happens if you fail to list your home during an ideal period and on a weekend? In short, you may learn that it will take longer for your home to sell and you may end up settling for less than your asking price. Online listings get 50 percent (or more) of all views during the first week the properties are on the market, and more than 75 percent of sellers who fail to find buyers within the first month of the property being on the market will end up taking an offer below the initial list price for the home.

By listing your home for sale between May 1 and May 15, you increase your chances of selling your home quickly and for the highest price. If you are able to make enough money on the sale of your home, you may be able to afford your dream home.
