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.

Estates Homes For Sale

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.

If you are unsure how to categorize your home, your best bet is to talk to an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS). Real estate agents with this specialty are knowledgeable about national luxury home trends, luxury buyer and seller needs, and the development of unique high level services.

Luxury Real Estate Agent

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.

3 Things to Consider Before Buying a Luxury Apartment in Johannesburg Gauteng

If you’re interested in buying a luxury house, this post is for you.

This is definitely an exciting time for buyers who are shopping for high-end homes, and Winnipeg has a lot to offer when it comes to ritzy properties. However, the luxury home buying process is one you’ll want to do your homework on if you’re interested in buying a dream home and not just a big house.

Take a look at these tips from the luxury home market before committing to anything and making a purchase

1. Patience is a virtue

If you’re considering buying a luxury house, you should learn to be patient. Making a hasty decision will only lead to buyer’s remorse. You don’t want that. What you want is the best value for your money.

2. You can’t always trust the photos

The best advice I can give you here is to not dismiss a house just by looking at the photos. The only way you can truly appreciate the real value of a home and to find out if it’s right for you is by seeing it in person.

3. There are no standards when buying a luxury house

It’s impossible to say what the perfect luxury property would look like. It all depends on your taste and your needs, so don’t let yourself become totally influenced by trends. Do some soul-searching instead.

Luxury Homes should fit your lifestyle

4. It’s more important to find a house that truly fits your lifestyle

You may find a beautiful property with a gorgeous pool which your friends will love, but if you don’t like to swim, it might not be the best choice for you. Your home should allow you to do more of the activities you’re passionate about.

5. The pool of buyers you’re competing against is a lot smaller

This is only one more reason to be patient. Less competition means you have more chances of finding an incredible home and getting a great deal. That’s if you don’t rush into anything.

6. Financial documentation is a must

It’s just better to document everything when buying a luxury house. Also, you should consider planning ahead. Getting your financial documentation together at the last minute can be stressful and simply not worth it.

7. A good agent won’t make the decision for you

I always try to give the best advice and give suggestions using my expertise and knowledge, but I never make the decision for my clients. At the end of the day, you need to feel comfortable knowing that it’s you who made the final call.

8. It’s best to work with a local REALTOR®

If you’re interested in buying a luxury house, you should rely on an agent who is familiar with the local market and knows all the hidden treasures in the area you are interested in.

Living and working in Winnipeg, I’m confident that I can provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision if you’re interested in buying a property here.

9. You can find the best luxury estate there is

You just need some help. I’d love to hear more about what exactly you’re looking for in a home and we can work together towards finding a property that fits your criteria perfectly.

Let’s start with a FREE, no strings attached consultation and you can tell me more about your new dream home.
