Realty in Johannesburg they depend on your information source, you will get a different answer to the question of what can be classified as a luxury home. The greatest difference in definitions is between towns; however, there seems to be agreement regarding the upper end of homes.

Homes that are unquestionably luxurious, are worth tens of millions of dollars or more. They have incredible amenities, professional landscaping and property planning, and are generally massive in size with ten or more bedrooms. These homes are advertised nationally and internationally. Real estate agents for these properties have additional responsibilities involving trusts, attorneys, and anonymity issues.

No one seems to question that these homes, often owned by extremely wealthy and usually famous people, are luxurious. In fact, these homes in Johannesburg should be called “super luxury” homes to differentiate them from other high end homes.

In an entirely different class, the other group of luxury homes, are advertised locally. Property in the US that is valued at over a million dollars is usually considered luxury real estate. Consumers in high socio-economic groups are the target for these properties.

This second group of homes may have features such as wet bars, designer kitchens, wine cellars, theatre seating, in-ground pools, security systems, professional landscaping, heated floors, and tennis courts. These homes are generally larger than average with good locations, amenities, property entries, and entertainment capabilities.

Luxury homes tend to have entertainment rooms with features such as built in seating and high end, up-to-date technology for the best movie watching experiences. Designer kitchens are also very trendy in high end homes with features such as custom paneling for appliances, extra under-the-counter refrigerators or beverage centers, and wine bars that fit among the kitchen pantry and other storage cabinets. Designer kitchens also include granite countertops, high end fixtures, customized storage drawers, and pullout pantries.

There’s no question that this second group of homes are also desirable homes to live in. However, are they really in the same class as homes in Johannesburg  which are also called luxury homes?

In both groups of homes, location, amenities, property entry, entertainment capability, and landscaping are considered. Most luxury homes offer a combination of desirable natural elements such as ocean proximity, views, or climate, and professionally designed landscaping and architecture. But really, if a 1.2 million dollar, lakefront home with a dock and a swimming pool is a luxury home, then Mariah Carey’s home must be a “super luxury” home.

Luxury Mansions Villa for Sale in Goa

Long before Isprava was interested in property in Goa, we were interested in Goa. Goa has been the backdrop for countless memories, stories and celebrations for almost all of us. Popularized by travelling Europeans and hippies in the 60s and glamourized by the rich and famous of today, Goa has something for everyone.

Finding Fanny

A new age romance, Finding Fanny is set in traditional Goa among catholic characters and lots of floral print dresses. The movie follows the journey of five oddball friends who are looking for ‘Fanny’, Naseerudin Shah’s love interest. The movie is set in a sleepy Goan village and really brings to life the vibrancy and tranquility of Goa. The director actually stayed in a Goan village for a month and that’s where he got the inspiration for the movie.

Trikal

Released in 1985, Trikal was selected for the Indian Film Retrospective is Lisbon in 1986 and invited to the London Film Festival in that same year. The movie studies the lives of a Christian family in Goa during the shift of the Portuguese to Indian administration. A fast-paced comedy, Trikal shows us the handover from the Portuguese to Indians through the Souza Soares family and is loosely inspired by cartoonist Mario Miranda’s family.

Despite the hype that surrounds the idea of holding an open house, Boca Raton houses for sale are vastly underrepresented in that particular area.

According to the MLS, within the next seven days there are 23 open houses scheduled in Boca Raton. That’s out of 2,709 current properties for sale.

That means fewer than 1% of homes for sale hold themselves open. So for prospective sellers of homes in Boca– or anywhere else — who are wondering if holding an open house is a vital part of the sales process, the answer appears to be a resounding, “Probably not.”

Open houses used to be an important sales tool

Once upon a time in the land of real estate, open houses were considered an essential selling tool. People came from miles around to visit homes for sale because there was no other way to see what was inside.

The listing broker and the mortgage broker used the occasion to meet people and add to their customer lists. And sometimes they were even able to sell the house to one of those visitors.

Today, however, the Internet has obviated the need for open houses. Why drive 30 miles to visit a property that you can look at while sitting around in your underwear at home?

Nonetheless, if you are planning to run an open house — or if you’re just planning to sell your home — here are 8 suggestions that will improve the open house experience of those who attend. They’ll also help your Boca Raton real estate agent to acquire some additional customers.

Clean up your kitchen.

As we all know, the kitchen is the showplace of a home. It’s the first and last place buyers look. But they don’t just look at the kitchen. They look in the kitchen. Everywhere. Cabinets, drawers, oven, and even in the refrigerator.

Remember, they will be buying those appliances, as well as the cabinets, sinks, and counter tops.
So make sure all of these places look (and smell) as clean as is humanly possible. A gross kitchen is a huge turn-off.

Clean up your bathrooms

You have to clean the sinks and the showers and the bathtubs and the toilets. You also need to vacuum up the stray hairs on the floor that we all leave behind.

Sure you’re only human, but not when you’re trying to sell your home. That’s when you’re forced to become a lean, mean, cleaning machine.

So remove your bath towels and put out fresh hand towels every day. First, because the appearance of clean, fluffy towels is more appealing. And second, because many of the people coming through your house will use your bathrooms. Unless you want to use the same towels they do, change them each day.

Clean out your medicine cabinets.

Doesn’t anyone respect privacy anymore? No, especially not when your house is for sale. So take anything that is private out of your medicine cabinets and your bathroom drawers. Your medical information is displayed on our prescriptions and identity theft is an unfortunate fact of life today. Don’t make it easy for someone to make your life much harder. Put your medications away somewhere safe.

Remove any valuables

You may keep your jewelry in the dresser so that it’s handy for your own use. But you don’t want it handy for the occasional light-fingered visitor who may see your open house as an opportunity to enhance their own collection.
Similarly, if you have collectibles that are small and valuable financially, or just important to you, remove them and place them somewhere relatively inaccessible and out of sight.

Take your pets for a walk

Leaving your pets in the house is a huge no-no. Many people are not pet lovers, so they will not appreciate the fact that your pooch is just being friendly.

Also, even though you may not notice it, pets leave their own odors behind. It’s a fact of pet life. You are inured to them because you live in the house.

People who don’t live in your house and who do not have pets — but do have noses — will notice those aromas. Clean up around your pet areas and spray around the house and use common sense to minimize pet scents.

Don’t leave your pet in the crate

Some animal lovers may feel this is cruel. Non-pet owners may feel the same way. Even if they don’t, the barking may unnerve them. Don’t take a chance on creating any kind of negative feelings during a potential buyer’s visit to your home.

Ask a friend to do a white glove test.

And a sniff test. If cleaning the house has not been your strong suit previously, it won’t be when it’s time to show off your home.

If you’re not sure, bring in a couple of friends and ask them to give you an opinion. If they say the place looks great, give yourself a round of applause and know you’ve done a good job.

If they say something like, “Well, it’s not so bad…” then hire a cleaning service. It’s worth the small cost to get your home sold.

Clean up the outside.

The old cliché about judging a book by its cover applies to the curb appeal of your home. If potential buyers don’t find the appearance of the front of your house inviting, they are likely to turn around before they get to the front door.
