Listing agents have long had to manage the role of pets in selling a home, including removing smells, accessories, and even the pet themselves in the showing process. Many agents still follow that pattern but other prefer to downplay, rather than hide, all evidence from potential buyers. “I might leave a single leash hanging by a door because that might make a pet owner think of their animal and bring a smile to their face while not upsetting someone who doesnt like dogs,” says Kimberly Cantine, an associate real estate broker with Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty in the Hudson River Valley. Real estate salesperson Barb St. Amant with Atlanta Fine Homes, Sothebys International Realty, in Atlanta, prefers to cite the creature comforts available in online descriptions to stir interest in a listing rather than showcase them visibly.
Price the listing competitively. Be sure to compare apples to apples—if you look at comparable houses without garages, youll get a lower listing price and appraised value than those with garages. How much less depends on the importance of this feature in the area. In Roachs Sarasota neighborhood, most homes are built with garages since buyers want to protect their cars from the sun and oxidizing salt, have a place to store their beach gear, and protect their possessions from vandals if they head north for an extended period. Therefore, she says the absence of a garage can decrease the appraised value by as much as 20 percent. But those whove been priced out of certain neighborhoods may find the savings appealing.
Midcentury design made its way onto the American residential architecture scene as a way to merge clean, modern aesthetics with burgeoning postwar demand for housing. The often one-story homes feature clean lines and large windows that bring nature into full view. Bedgood sees the style as one of the best examples of what a home should be. It “was almost always designed with people in mind,” he says. He also loves how flexible the style is, allowing homeowners to integrate an “eclectic mix of furniture” and decor in the home without it feeling like a hodge-podge.
Woodwork is used for all sorts of interior spaces—doors, floors, walls, and the trim detailing thats used in crown molding at the top by the ceiling. Such architectural trim, especially when wider and thicker, makes a house look more luxurious, says Barnett. It can also be used in more elaborate ways, atop a ceiling in recessed grids for a coffered effect or in one large central portion thats recessed and higher, in whats called a tray design. Merritt, in Mentor, Ohio, often designs these complex arrangements of wood in clients homes. The company recently fashioned an elaborate grid pattern from American white oak for a large Hamptons, N.Y., home. Haver and Skolnik Architects, in Roxbury, Conn., known for building and renovating traditional homes, frequently uses beams and other millwork to add coziness and an aged character. And Pearson recently used millwork to define an area in an open-plan New York apartment and baffle sound. In an adjacent kitchen, she added trim to bring extra drama to a skylight.
