Chic Home Decor: BABY PROOF EDITION

What? I thought this was a real estate blog? Don’t worry- you’re still in the right place! Here around the Red Team office we have a couple of beautiful, glowing mamas-to-be! We figured this blog is a timely tribute to our baby mamas as they prepare for their new roommate to move out and in and might be helpful to any other expecting readers. If that’s you- I’m sure you’ve already begun or considered the process of baby proofing and have come to realize that these safety precautions you’re taking are U-G-L-Y YOU AIN’T GOT NOW ALIBI. So, here’s our take on how you can keep your little cutie safe without sacrificing your totally chic home. Let us know if you’re trying any of these out or what worked for you!

DIY - Get a pallet, foam, table legs, fabric and a staple gun.

I probably spend most of my time in my living room when I’m at home. It’s cozy, decorated just how I like, and it’s where people tend to congregate! Perfect for the whole family- except for babies. Unless, you intend to keep your little one on a leash like they do at Disneyland (hey- no judgement) you might need to consider what you’re going to do about your coffee table. The solution to those pointy and hard edges is to substitute them with a large, padded ottoman. If anything you can only incorporate more style into your space with a fun fabric… just know it might get juice spilled on it eventually.

Speaking of juice stains… this one’s more for the ladies with the white couches than for the babies with the juice. White couches are amazing. The end. They can pretty much only exist as a white couch, though, if you only look at them and never touch or breathe on them. For those braver than me- here’s a tip on protecting or salvaging your white couch from baby spit up and leaky diapers. Once again, it comes down to the fabric: buy a beautiful piece of fabric and have it made into a fitted sheet cover for over your cushions. The best part about this is you can change them out with different colors whenever you feel like it and it makes for easy washing!

Now, I hate to say it… but those beautiful brass candlesticks you have out there? Or that amazing antique vase sitting on your death trap- I mean coffee table?  I’m sure you already know this but for the people in the back: babies shouldn’t be around hard, or pointy, or fragile things. You don’t want to see those precious items destroyed and you most certainly don’t want your baby to be around broken glass. Swap those things out for light, safe, and natural materials that can even be played with! Unless your sweet baby has hulk like strength, you shouldn’t have to worry too much about your cute, new wooden bowl being smashed.

To any expecting mamas: good luck! You’re going to do great! And to Kiley and Allison, our Red Team mamas, we LOVE you and your babies and we can’t wait to meet them!

Brief Synopsis Of The Week’s Economic News And How It Affects Real Estate and Rates

Sellers see home profits surge to decade high
Homeowners who made a sale in the last three months of 2017 saw their return on investment hit an average 28.8%.

ATTOM Data Solutions’ Home Sales Report shows that the average profit of $54,000 made by sellers was the highest since the third quarter of 2007; and increased from $53,732 in the previous quarter and from $47,133 in the fourth quarter of 2016.

“It’s the most profitable time to sell a home in more than 10 years yet homeowners are staying put longer than we’ve ever seen,” said Daren Blomquist, senior vice president at ATTOM Data Solutions. “While home sellers on the West Coast are realizing the biggest profits, rapid home price appreciation in red state markets is rivaling that of the high-flying coastal markets and producing sizable profits for home sellers in those middle-American markets as well.”

Profit in this market almost doubled 

Sellers in San Jose saw the largest return on their investment (90.9%) but there were also large gains for other Californian markets: San Francisco (73.3%), Merced (64.6%) and Santa Cruz (59.8%).

Seattle was the only metro outside California to make the top 5 for ROI. Sellers there averaged a 64.4% return.

“The biggest story for the greater Seattle housing market in 2017 was persistently low inventory levels which continued to push home prices higher,” said Matthew Gardner, chief economist at Windermere Real Estate, covering the Seattle market.

US median home price at record high

The US median home price in 2017 was $235,000, up 8.3% from 2016 and setting a new all-time high. Annual home price appreciation in 2017 slowed slightly compared to the 8.5% in 2016.

Ocala, Florida (14.3%); Kansas City, Missouri (13.4%); San Jose, California (13.3%); Salem, Oregon (12.9%); and Nashville, Tennessee (12.5%) were all among the cities with the largest price increases.
