Costa Mesa Mesa Verde Garage Sale – Take Our Poll!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Annual Mesa Verde Garage Sale. This year was our largest turnout ever with 163 homes! On Saturday, May 15, 2010 the deal hunters were out in droves. By the time was over at 2pm, we heard lots of great feedback and success stories.

We’re often asked why we sponsor a neighborhood garage sale and how it relates to real estate. Here’s why:

-Neighborhood events foster community spirit

-It’s a great way to clean up the neighborhood

-Cleaning up your home is a great way to clear out the clutter

-People who are planning to move often want to reduce the amount of items they need to move

-Plus, Holly Schwartz notes that it’s a form of recycling because the items can be reused by their new owners

Everyone has been so grateful for the mass advertising efforts of our Mesa Verde Garage Sales and the crowds they attract so we’d like to bring it to other nearby neighborhoods.  Where should we go next?

Costa Mesa CA real estate includes several different neighborhoods. Costa Mesa real estate company Torelli Realty is located in the Mesa Verde Costa Mesa neighborhood. 

Mesa Verde is neighborhood where home values remain strong. Typically families move to Mesa Verde for the large yards and family-friendly cul-de-sacs and neighborhood parks. Families live here, adult children return here – there is something special about Mesa Verde.

This week we are prepping three new listings in Mesa Verde Costa Mesa.  Homes in Mesa Verde tend to sell quickly when they are well priced and often receive multiple offers, which reinforces the strong competition to own a home here.

Featured homes:

-In the Mesa Verde State Streets (where all the streets are named after the states) – 3318 Wyoming. 3 bedroom/2 bath. Fantastic value! Pride of ownership shows because this fine Costa Mesa home is being sold by one of the neighborhood’s long time owners. Located on one of Mesa Verde’s cute cul de sacs. As an added bonus this home has high ceilings, new paint, walk in closet, and updated bathrooms.

-In the Mesa Verde Inner Loop – On Pitcairn. 4 bedroom/2 bath. Close to the scenic Balearic Park.

-In the Mesa Verde Tree Streets (where all the streets are named after trees) – a chardming ranch with plenty of green land for children to play on or to plan a beautful garden. 3 bedroom/2 bath. Central location.

When these homes sell, it will be exciting to welcome the new homeowners to Mesa Verde – welcome to Costa Mesa!

Three Essential Home Staging Tips

As Realtors, we need to prepare a house before it hits the real estate market. Why? Homes that make the best impression can sell for more money. One important thing to focus on is home décor and how to stage a home for sale. At our Costa Mesa real estate company we’ve seen how some minimal changes can make a huge impact. They’re ideas anyone can use whether they are selling a home or just looking for a change in style and they’re guaranteed to make a huge difference.

1. Match the inside look of the home to the exterior. In Costa Mesa there are many traditional ranch style homes. Traditional homes should have traditional pieces and décor. It’s not cohesive to have an ultra modern, minimalist style in a traditional looking home. In this craftsman style home, a traditional décor with craftsman details would work perfectly.

 

2. In general, the kitchen is the most popular and most-trafficked room in the home. How can you set the stage in the kitchen? First, remove as many items from the counters as possible. Next, set out a large bowl of brightly colored fruits. Another good idea is to set out a couple of fun cookbooks on the counter, or even display one in a holder. When a house is being shown to prospective buyers or guests are coming over, these simple strategies can really enhance any kitchen.

3. Fill your built-ins with care. Buyers love built-ins because they are an instant display case that can showcase nicely if done right. Unfortunately, many built-ins make a bad impression because they are stuffed with excessive clutter like books and knick-knacks. If you are selling your home, it’s a good idea to remove family photos because it’s difficult for buyers to envision themselves living there with reminders of your family all over the place. Simple decorations like candles, small floral arrangements, and just a few nicely arranged decorations can showcase well and highlight the built-ins.

These simple tips can help improve some of the main areas of your home. Every Costa Mesa home that we list for sale is evaluated by our Realtors before they hit the market so that home sellers receive expert home staging advice to optimize their home. Small fixes can equal big bucks so it’s an important step in helping our sellers get the best price for their home.
