A Time to Give

Keefe Kares check presentation to LG Food Pantry
Members of the Keefe Kares Team present a check to the Lake Geneva Food Pantry #GivingTuesday

Here at Keefe Real Estate, we feel that it is important that we give back in a tangible and meaningful way to help improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. Though giving back has always been something we value, we started Keefe Foundation, Inc. in 2006 as a matching funds program. Since then the Keefe Foundation has evolved into Keefe Kares, a program that is now so much more.

A big part of fundraising efforts by the Keefe Kares team at Keefe Real Estate, goes towards supporting the local food pantries in Walworth County. These local shelters help support families and individuals in Walworth County who may be going through tough times.

“I can’t thank you enough for your support. Your generosity means so much to the nearly 200 people and children we serve each year; gifts like this help families stay together and get back on their feet.” – Twin Oaks Shelter

How can you help? Contact your local food pantries in Walworth County to learn more about supporting families in need during the holiday season.

FALL & REAL ESTATE

Screen Shot 2015-10-06 at 2.12.55 PM

 

Realtor.com’s Deena Weinberg writes and article tell home buyers what to expect and look for when purchasing or selling your home in the fall months… 

THE REAL ESTATE MARKET is open 365 days a year – yes, even on holidays – but there are cyclical trends to the marketplace. Some of those ups and downs are based on mortgage interest rates and housing availability, but some are based on season.

Next to spring, fall is the busiest season for home buying and selling. Autumn offers certain benefits to home buyers, including year-end tax breaks, pleasant weather conditions for moving and a wide selection of homes for sale. Read on to learn the advantages of buying in the fall.

Year-End Tax Breaks
Come September and October, people start to think about what year-end tax breaks they might be eligible for. Fortunately for home buyers, owning a home can yield great dividends in tax returns. For example, both mortgage interest and property taxes are deductible from gross income. Furthermore, if you have prepaid some interest before the due date of your first payment, and if you close your loan before the year’s end, that interest can also be deducted.

Please, Mr. Postman

Send me news, tips, and promos from realtor.com® and Move.

Getting Ahead of Mother Nature

Buying a house before the deep freeze of winter sets in is very appealing to most home buyers. No one wants to worry about icy roads, snowstorms or blackout conditions on moving day, nor is it fun to move in sweltering summer heat.

School Year and Holidays
By wintertime, kids have settled into school, established friendships and become involved in extracurricular activities. Moving in summer would be least disruptive to your children’s schooling or social calendar, but autumn is next best. Also, by moving in fall, you’ll be settled snugly into your new home before Thanksgiving and the winter holidays.

More Home Choices
While home demand is not as keen in fall as it is in spring, it’s still high, so competition can be high, too. Fall buyers and sellers tend to be motivated to move, unlike the window-shoppers who sometimes come out in spring.

You may experience pressure to buy, due to the quick turnaround of houses on the market, but you’ll also benefit from the broad selection of homes available. In fact, between September and December, you may be able to visit several open houses in a single day, and listings will be updated frequently. Therefore, to make sure you don’t miss out on your dream house, it’s a good idea to regularly check listings and check in with your Realtor.

Fall Home-Buying Tips
Given the home-buying competition and the short, pre-holiday timetable in autumn, you may be tempted to place a bid that is out of your price range, for fear of losing the home. Before you make an offer, know what kind of house you need and what you canrealistically afford, and stick to your budget. You may want to explore prequalifying for a loan so that you’ll be ready to act when you find the home you want. And as always, whatever season you buy in, buy at the best time for you and your family, and hold out for the right house – there are always more homes to see and to choose among.

Yes – Curb Appeal IS a Really Big Deal when selling your home

If you’ve watched HGTV for hours on end, or you’ve followed real estate websites you continue to hear the gurus talking about how important your curb appeal is.

Well, we’ve got news for you… Curb Appeal IS a really, REALLY big deal! 

curb appeal selling my house lake geneva wiIt is especially true when you’re trying to sell your home in Southeastern Wisconsin.  Real Estate involves more than sticking a sign in the ground and hoping the right buyer drives past at the perfect time and writes you an out of this world offer.  Truth:  Real estate doesn’t work that way.  It takes planning and work to get your home ready to list and then marketed to the fullest.  With that said, we want to help you with a few tips to help your curb appeal so the buyers will follow through and request a showing to see more!

1.  Maintain the roof, chimney & gutters!  Make sure you don’t have any missing shingles and that the roof isn’t at the end of it’s life.  The same can be said for your chimney, no missing bricks and if any of the mortar is loose, have a chimney professional come out and tuck-point it.  With gutters, make sure they are cleaned out (we don’t want to see last years acorns growing into trees out of your gutters.)

2.  Maintain your windows & trim!  We all hear about spring and fall cleaning.  Well the time is now, when you’re planning on listing your Wisconsin home for sale to wash all your windows, inside & out.  Let the light in and showcase the home you are so proud of better.  You’ll also want to make sure that all the exterior trim is in good condition.  If you’re seeing peeling paint, buyers are thinking “needs too much work” even if you’ve completely renovated your entire kitchen, baths and family room inside.

3.  Get the grime off!  While it may have been very low on your priority list (if even on the list at all) now is a good time to have the exterior of your home power washed.  It’ll show how nice your siding or brick exterior is.  It’ll also get rid of any unsavory mildew that has potentially sprouted on the North side of your home that doesn’t get the sun.

4.  Make your entrance welcoming!  Now would be the perfect time to update your front door.  Install something as nice as you can afford.  Buyers appreciate a high end door that features a window or transom windows on either side.  While you’re working around the door, pick up some classy new house numbers that are easy to see from the road and look polished.  Lighting is also a major contributor to curb appeal.  Make sure your yard light is in tune with your entry, whether it be a porch, or along your driveway.

5.  Upgrade your mailbox!  With so many options on the market these days, a cheap, dented metal mailbox will give the wrong impression about your home.  Sometimes, neighborhoods have a uniform look and you’ll want to comply with what the standards are.  Take a visit to your local home improvement store to see what options would look best when you’re looking at your home from the street as buyers will be doing.

FrontPorch1By spending the time to get your Southeastern Wisconsin home polished and ready before you list it for sale, you’ll be pleased to see the buyers being more committed and writing you a stronger offer.  What is a “minor repair” in your eyes as a homeowner, spells $$ to buyers.  And unless you are selling your home as a fixer upper, buyers want to get the best value for a home in excellent condition that they can move into immediately with their family!

If you aren’t sure which projects are most important to help your home show better and sell higher, get a professional opinion from a Realtor.  We see houses everyday, 365 days a year for a living.  We know what buyers are looking for, what they expect and what’s unacceptable to them.

Call one of our local offices toll free (800) 690-2292 or start a Live Chat right here on our website.  With Keefe Real Estate being the largest, most successful real estate company in Walworth County, we have the most experience and are happy to help you sell your home successfully! curb appeal donts

3 Tips for Selling Your Wisconsin Home Over the Holidays

Making the decision to sell your Wisconsin home is a big commitment.

Along with finishing those last projects on the infinite “honey do” list, it’s important you get your home in showing condition. What does this mean for you, especially if you’re listing your home over the holidays?

First, regardless of the time of year, it’s important to sort through your mementos and personal possessions and simplify around your home. Take the photos and kids drawings off the refrigerator for the time being. We know how special they are to you, but to a buyer, those little things distract them from seeing your rooms as a whole and envisioning their furniture and family living there.

With the holidays around the corner, there’s so many options for decor. Some will enhance your home’s natural beauty. Others will make your home look cluttered and less appealing.

Here’s a few do’s & don’ts to make sure your Wisconsin home glows when a buyer walks through the door:

Christmas decorations lake geneva wi1. Do utilize natural greenery in your floral arrangements. For Thanksgiving, using small gourds, dried Indian corn, and pine cones or acorns can bring the outside in and really dress up the centerpiece on your dining room table. For Christmas, a floating candle and cranberries floating in a clear glass bowl make for an elegant, finishing touch.

2. Do keep your Christmas Tree simple. Keeping your lights and ornaments simple allows the buyer to visualize your room as a warm, family-friendly environment to celebrate future holidays with their children and grandchildren. Skip the hand-strung popcorn this year for sake of simplicity and elegance around your tree.

3. Do utilize white lights to create a soft glow both inside and out. Decorating your front porch railing with soft, white lights helps make the entrance to your home feel warm and it allows Realtors and buyers showing your home after 4 p.m. better visibility as the sun is setting earlier and earlier.

And because we think it’s really, really important that your home look great and sell for top dollar, here’s a bonus tip!

ChristmasLawn14. Don’t decorate your yard with crazy blow up lawn ornaments. Blow up ornaments are great for car dealerships trying to get attention, but not so much for your home when you’re listing it for sale over the holidays. They block the view of your home from the road and look cluttered during the day while they are crumpled on the ground, not blown up. So keep those stored for this holiday season!

Everybody’s home is different and your home is sure to have really amazing, special features that buyers will love. To make the best of your exposure when listing your home, share what you love about your home with your Realtor allowing them to showcase that feature and help potential buyers fall in love like you did!

Real Estate Tips for Elkhorn WI Homeowners from Stacey Schultz – Keefe Real Estate

homes in elkhorn wiDo not pussy foot around being a secret seller in Elkhorn, Wisconsin.

If you are not actively on the market, being showcased on the internet via Multiple Listing Service, Realtor.com, Zillow, Homes.com, and your Realtor’s social media and personal website – you are a “secret seller”. In reality, your first showing is via the photo tour that is available online, and a buyer that is actively seeking a home in your area does not know you are an option.

Weather, time of year and other historical housing constraints are becoming irrelevant with buyers shopping online.

Real estate is a year-round business and buyers are not affected by whether it’s July or January!  They are buying when they find the house that suits their family needs!  So it’s important that YOU are online and in front of active buyers and are not a secret seller.

Third quarter sales figures are in for the city of Elkhorn, WI and the statistics and number are encouraging. In 2013 third quarter sales have totaled 81 closed single family homes with Keefe Real Estate participating in 38 of those transactions!  Comparatively, you need to consider that the same time frame for 2012 grossed a total of 64 closed single family homes with an average sales price approximately $3,000 less per sale. Also, the days on market (DOM) have decreased by nearly 11% to an average of 139 days vs. 156 days. These are all good indicators for a stronger, improving real estate market in Elkhorn and Walworth County on the whole.

As a homeowner you have a choice.  You can continue to be a secret seller, stick a sign in your yard and hope that the right person happens to drive by.  Or you can make the decision to work with a professional that will give your home visibility online and offline.  Ensuring that wherever your buyer is coming from, your home will be on their radar.  What you choose to do is up to you!

Mortgage Rates and Lake Geneva Real Estate

What’s happening in the Lake Geneva Real Estate market and how do mortgage rates measure up?

Last week, Ben Bernanke startled many by announcing that the Fed will not wind down their bond buying program right now. The program is part of an overall stimulus package geared at bringing back the national economy. The Fed’s purchase of these bonds over the last few years has driven mortgage rates to historic lows. The assumption that there would be a reduction in bond purchases has caused 30 year mortgage rates to spike upward over the last few months.

Surprisingly, Bernanke revealed the Fed will continue bond purchasers at the current pace.  But the message underlying the Fed’s decision is “unsettling,” said Bruce Bittles, chief investment strategist for Robert W. Baird, because what it means is this: “The economy is still in a very, very slow-growth mode.”

According to an article on JSOnline.com yesterday, “In the short term, the Fed’s action will likely continue to help the housing recovery by reining in interest rates that had been ratcheting higher for several months.  Douglas Lenski, president and owner of Milwaukee-based Wholesale Mortgage Services of Wisconsin, expects mortgage rates to decline for the rest of the year as a result of the Fed’s move.”

“I think inevitably rates are going to fall,” Lenski said. “I think they should be between 4% and 4.5% for the remainder of 2013, and we’ll see how that affects the economy and we’ll see what the Fed does after that.”

mortgage rates september 2013 lake geneva real estateWhat does this mean for my family if we’re looking to buy a home in Walworth County?

2013 started the year seeing 30 year fixed mortgage rates at 3.375%.  Last week they were at 4.5%.  With home prices remaining steady, for people looking to purchase, this means waiting is costing you valuable money.

As an example, if you are a home buyer with good credit looking to purchase a $250,000 home, in January your monthly payment would have been $884.  Now, that exact same home with the same terms of a 30 year fixed mortgage would cost you $1013 per month before property taxes and insurance.  That’s a 15% increase in 9 months.

Waiting has put this buyer in a position to either A. increase their monthly payment or B. purchase less of a house to keep the monthly payment the same.  Either way, the big picture with mortgage rates rewards those that are decision makers.

Right now, it’s more important than ever to talk with a lender immediately upon deciding to purchase a home.  While each bank has different loan programs, the lending industry is changing and you’ll want to work with someone that can give you sound financial advice and knows our local real estate market.  Get pre-approved so you know exactly how much house you can afford.  Then stay in close communication with your lender so you make that critical decision to lock in your rate, so you aren’t caught off guard.

Once you’re pre-approved with your lender for a mortgage, then it’s time to start looking for homes.  Our Realtors are active and know all of the communities throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.  From Kenosha and Paddock Lake to Lake Geneva, Delavan & Elkhorn, Walworth & Burlington, our agents have experience and can answer your questions.  To start the discussion about what you are looking for in a home call one of our 7 offices and speak with a Realtor that knows your local market.  Or utilize the “Live Chat” on our website where you can chat one-on-one with a Realtor and start the process of turning your dream into a reality.

In real estate and in life, timing is everything!  The decision is yours whether you want to gamble and wait, or commit and make things happen!

Fall Maintenance Tips for your Wisconsin Home

fall home maintenanceWith the passing of Labor Day, it unofficially marks the start of Fall.

Sure, we’ll get a few more hot days, and some chilly nights but it’s a great time to take a look at your home and get those little tasks done that will make a big difference over the winter months.  This is especially true if you are thinking about selling your home over the next 6 months.  Being proactive with your home maintenance will help you keep your operating costs down and really improve your ability to sell your home as move-in ready – a huge selling feature to buyers looking to purchase Lake Geneva realestate in today’s market.

When people think home maintenance, the king of DIY is Bob Vila.  Here’s a few tips from Bob Vila to take care of in the fall, before the snowflakes fall.

Exterior Maintenance - Check for peeling paint around window sashes and doorways.  Before the weather turns too chilly, scrape and paint the trim to give it a fresh, clean look.  Install storm windows and remove screens.  Check for cracks in the foundation and masonry.  “Caulking and sealing openings is one of the least expensive maintenance jobs,” says Michael Hydeck, Hydeck Design Build, Inc., Telford, PA, and National President, National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). “Openings in the structure can cause water to get in and freeze, resulting in cracks and mold build up,” he says. “Regardless of whether you live in a cold or warm climate, winter can bring very harsh conditions resulting in water or ice damage. A careful check of the outside structure combined with inexpensive maintenance can save you money in the long run.”

Interior Maintenance - Have your furnace inspected.  Change the furnace filter for cleaner air and added efficiency, keeping your heating costs lower. Change the direction of your ceiling fan to create an upward draft that redistributes warm air from the ceiling. Test and change the batteries in your smoke and carbon dioxide detectors and keep extra household batteries on hand.  If you have a fireplace, have your chimney inspected to eliminate risk of fires when the air gets cooler.  Organize – both basements and garages are areas that it’s easy to set something down and not put it away.  It’s a good time to invest in plastic tubs to sort, store & label your storage areas.  It’ll look cleaner and be easier to find things to take out next time you need them.

Lawn & Landscaping - Time to clean out the spent flowers and plants.  Interject a few mums in containers for a pop of color this fall.  When thinking about putting your house on the market for sale, think about how your home looks from the street.  What is your curb appeal saying to potential buyers.  As that is your first impression, you’ll want to make sure your steps and porch are well painted.  Landscaping is neat & clean and that your home looks like they could move in with their family.

For more great tips, check out Bob Vila’s website or connect with one of our Realtors.  We’ll help you know what to do to put your home on the market for sale.

Whether you’re in Elkhorn, Delavan, Burlington or Lake Geneva, we have Realtors available to answer your questions and help you make the sale process smoother!  Contact on of our 7 offices or do a Live Chat here on our website.

Southeastern Wisconsin Real Estate Update

The real estate housing statistics have been compiled for the housing numbers in Wisconsin through May.  Looking specifically at Southeastern Wisconsin, real estate has shown a slight uptick compared to a year ago and over last month.

se wisconsin real estate

According to the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association, the Southeastern Wisconsin region, has experienced a 15% growth in the number of homes sold this May compared to May 2012.  Year to date in 2013 (January – May) total growth of 12.8% higher than we were last year at this time.

Because Walworth County has the lakes area, we also took a look at specific statistics for this region.  The vacation home market impacts the sales price of local properties especially around Lake Geneva, Delavan Lake, Fontana, Williams Bay and North of Elkhorn in Sugar Creek and LaGrange townships.  In May, 137 homes sold in Walworth County.  That’s the same number we had last May as well. The median sales price for homes in Walworth County that have sold in May was $157,900 – up from $147,900 in May of 2012.  However, figures are down 6% from April 2013 in Walworth County.

Lake Geneva and Southeastern Wisconsin Real Estate Summary

This means that having a pulse on the local real estate market is more critical than ever.  You hear reports on national news both on television and online about how the market has dramatically increased.  And while overall, our local market has shown steady signs of activity, there’s nothing like the statistics to help you understand what you are looking at for buying or selling your home.

Thus, having a REALTOR® help answer your questions and help you to determine the value of your home in our local market compared to the statistics of what has sold recently is more imperative now than ever.  The market changes and having a professional work on your behalf that has a detailed understanding of the real estate market in your community as well as understanding your property specifically will benefit you more now than ever.

Keefe Real Estate has 7 offices throughout Southeastern Wisconsin to best serve you.  Abbey Springs, Burlington, Delavan, Elkhorn, Geneva National, Lake Geneva (Downtown & the business center next to Walmart.)  Contact your local Keefe office to speak in detail with a REALTOR® about your property or what you are searching for.

Call any of our offices toll free at (800) 690-2292 or utilize the “Live Chat” here on our website: www.KeefeRealEstate.com

walworth county real estate market

Sales estimates for the state are provided by the National Association of REALTORS®, which seasonally adjusts quarterly sales figures. All county figures on sales volume and median prices are compiled by the WRA and are not seasonally adjusted. Median prices are only computed if the county recorded at least 10 home sales in the quarter. Beginning in 2010, all historical sales volume and median price data at the county level have been re-bench marked using the Techmark system, which accesses MLS data directly and in real time.
