Regina Real Estate QUESTION:
We are considering putting our house up for sale. There are a few interior cosmetic fixes that we would like to do but we just aren't sure if they will help the sale of our house and are worth it. Two options we are considering is painting the whole interior of our home and installing new flooring. Do you think we will sell our house faster and get our money back if we do those things before we sell?


When you are getting your home ready to sell, there are of course a few things to consider from a cosmetic standpoint beyond just a real good clean and tidying of your home. Should I paint the entire house? Should we get rid of our scratched up floors/old carpet? Is this going to give me a return on my investment?

When it comes to paint, if you think your home needs a paint job because of a few scratches, marks, or dents from daily wear and tear, you might want to consider patching those areas as a lower cost alternative. You'd be amazed what a little spackle and elbow grease can do to those marks. If the colors of your home are really outdated and you think a fresh coat of neutral colors would give your home that WOW factor, then you might want to investigate your options. Do a little research...what is the cost of a few cans of paint and supplies versus hiring a professional to do the job for you? Can you afford to do this? Would it make enough of an impact to really add value to your home? Now if you decide to go this route, you have to keep one thing in mind...ensure the color palette you choose is fairly neutral...remember, the potential buyer of your home may have furniture that is a completely different style and color to yours. If done properly, then paint can be a relatively inexpensive way to really freshen up a room.

As for flooring, depending on the size of your house and the are that you are considering, this can be a very large cost. If you are concerned about scratched hardwood, there are a variety of products out there that fix those scratches and give your flooring new life. You can also consider some nice throw rugs as a much more cost effective way to draw attention away from the condition of your floors. Now just remember, hardwood is meant to show character and often those marks you see are not necessarily what potential buyers are focused on. Outdated and dirty carpet on the other hand is something that may require a little bit more work. If the carpet is still in good condition, find yourself a good carpet cleaner who will do a thorough job. That restores the nap of the carpet and removes surface stains and/or pet hair. If the carpet is a lost cause, then yes, depending on the size of the area, you may be better off hitting up your local flooring store and catch a great deal on a nice quality, neutral carpet that once again can completely change the look of your room. Just like with the paint option, you have to weigh a few factors....like whether you can do the install job yourself or if in the grand scheme of things its just going to go way over your budget and leave you stressed about finances?

At the end of the day, if your the cost of your projects is beyond your budget, its probably a better idea to just keep these 'fixes' in mind when pricing your home and considering potential offers. You can work the fact that the home desperately needs a good paint job and new carpet into the price and a knowledgeable and trained realtor can help you do that. Also, remember, selling a home is stressful enough and adding even more stress when you might get a few extra dollars from the sale might not be worth your hard work and efforts.

Ten Health Risks of Mold Health

Risks from mold increase in areas where the relative humidity is above 55%, primarily because higher humidity means higher moisture and mold thrives in this climate. According to microbiologists, Aspergillus is the the most toxic mold. Another toxic mold, Stachybotrys Chartarum, “Black Mold”, has received more press coverage and is a greenish-black fungi that grows on high-cellulose material such as straw, hay, wet leaves, dry wall, carpet, wall paper, fiber-board, ceiling tiles, thermal insulation, etc. Mold is toxic and can cause the following ten health conditions:

1. Pulmonary hemorrhage or pulmonary hemosiderosis (primarily in infants)

2. Nose bleeds

3. Immune system suppression (resulting in increasing numbers of infections)

4. Hair loss

5. Dermatitis

6. Chronic fatigue

7. Psychological depression

8.Diarrhea

9. Sore throats

10. Headaches and other flu-like symptoms

The only method to determine the type of mold present is by sample analysis by an accredited laboratory. If you suspect that you have toxic mold in your home or business, great care must be taken to remove and dispose of the toxic material. Contact a Professional REGINA Mold Remediator for an independent assessment and remediation plan asap!

WHATS LURKING IN YOUR FURNACE DUCTS

REGINA SALON Experts share a Trusted Tip on avoiding bad hair days..On the REGINA DIRECTORY!

 

 

Bad Hair Days? Not this year!!

Hey everyone!! So far we've had a fabulous winter! Feeling like maybe your hair is not so fabulous though, need some new ideas for your style? No worries, I'm here to help you through those "bad hair days"!!

New York's fashion week is a great place for spotting the top 2012 hair trends! This season minimalism and natural beauty took over the catwalk in hair fashion....great news for all of us who don't have a personal stylist! Simple, no fuss styles are huge right now! Sleek ponytails and chignons, in all kinds of variations, artful braids/twists and beachy waves topped the list of must have hair for 2012!

Sleek ponytails are so simple! This style can be created in wet or dry hair, use a large paddle brush to smooth the hair into a ponytail, fasten with a large hair tie and finish with Redken Vinyl Glam 02 to amp up the shine!!

Chignons are just as easy... Side or center part your hair, tie back into a sleek ponytail in the nape of the neck, make a not with the hair and fasten with bobby pins or get creative and twist up small or larger pieces and pin into place! Try this look set off to one side for a formal evening look!

Braids/Twists are super hot right now!! So even if you aren't the best at braiding, this will be a quick fix for a no fuss style! Simply do a basic 3 strand braid or herringbone braid starting in the nape of your neck, and fasten with a small clear hair tie! Try Redken Wool Shake 08 to tease the hair and give it that undone, disheveled look!! I also love this style coming to one side over your shoulder! In shorter hair try a stylish braid in your fringe area!

Wanna know a simple way to create those messy beach waves? Use Redken Tousle Whip 04 through damp hair, place into a bun, wait for it to dry, and then let hair down or blow dry on low after product is in with just your fingers to style! On dry hair grab your largest barrel curling iron, for long hair a 1.25" works great or a 1" iron for hair above the shoulders. Take large sections and curl away from the face, use Redken Radiant Sea Spray to give it that beachy textured look!!

I haven't forgotten about all of you short haired beauties out there!

Coming back from the roaring 20's, wear a sleek side part with your hair tucked behind your ears or tuck one side, adding a slight finger wave is great for an evening look! To acheive this look use Redken Hardwear 16 Gel in wet hair.

Dress up any of these looks with a jeweled headband or hairpiece like Michelle Williams wore for the Golden Globes!

How about giving your color a little sun kissed glow? We've been seeing this trend on the red carpet and in fashion magazines but might not have even noticed! The "Ombre" look took over in 2011 and is still huge for 2014! Ombre comes from the french word meaning shaded or shading. Its that look as if you just came from the beach, darker in the roots through the mid-shaft and gradually fading lighter from the mid-shaft into the ends! This look is super low maintenance and a perfect way to brighten up your color for spring! It can be done more or less dramatic and in a variety of tones from gold, copper, and caramel to platinum blonde! Hope this gave you some inspiration to try something new with your hair!

If you are feeling REALLY adventurous try copying the braid in the YOU TUBE VIDEO BELOW showcased by Jill Leitz ( a Redken Global artisita and clearly a braid specilaist)
