Introducing Concierge Home Sales by The Kerzner Group

Typically, the real estate market slows down as we head into the winter months. With the colder weather and multiple holidays, people take a break from buying or selling a home. This year, however, in true 2020 fashion, where nothing has been typical, we’re looking at one of the busiest winter seasons in history. With people spending more time at home and interest rates at a record low (hovering in or around 3%), it’s true what people have been saying: now is the time to buy and sell. As a testament to this booming real estate market and to the response we’ve received for the services we provide, we are pleased to announce we are expanding. Concierge Homes Sales is now Concierge Home Sales by The Kerzner Group. This rebranding, including our new logo, reflects the growth and development of our team since launching in 2012. Concierge Home Sales by The Kerzner Group caters to the Brookline, Newton, Metro West, and the Boston communities, overseeing and optimizing every step of the real estate process — whether you are selling or buying. As part of CHS’s commitment, we underwrite the majority of the staging costs, allowing our clients to receive the most significant rate […]

The Clutter Isn’t Cute

We’ve talked about the importance of curb appeal — that you only have “one chance to make a first impression” with the exterior of your home. Well, the same can be said for the interior. And one of the first things buyers will notice in your home is clutter. Clutter can be unappealing to some and can also give potential buyers the impression that your house has inadequate storage. Now is the time to start chipping away at those organization projects you’ve been putting off. Here are some tips to help you get started: Visualize what you want the room to look like — Having a goal for a space will make you feel motivated to tackle those unsightly messes. Start with the most unorganized room in the house — If you can get through that room, you can get through anything! Take it one step at a time — Remember it’s not a sprint. Take it slow, take your time, and do it right. Even if it’s only 10-15 minutes a day. Every minute counts. So if you’re planning to sell your home, take some time to get organized and give the right impression, it makes a HUGE difference.

You Never Get a Second Chance to Make a First Impression

We can always count on the New England weather to throw us for a loop. The combination of blizzards, bomb cyclones, and freezing rain this April has not only delayed spring but also shortened what is typically the busy season for the real estate industry. Now that we’re FINALLY starting to see some peeks of sun, it’s the perfect time to assess your home and edit, edit, edit. Exteriors took a real beating this winter. Painting, landscaping & yard work, gutter repairs, driveway improvements, front porch sprucing, and fence replacements are the most common damage that affects homeowners during the winter, and if you are trying to sell your home, it is crucial to make these projects a priority. The phrase, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” couldn’t be truer when putting your home on the market. So, think carefully about that first impression. It starts the moment someone steps out of their car — take a look at your home through the eyes of the buyer and ask yourself, “is this home well cared for?” “is it in good condition?”. That perception often starts on the outside even before a buyer has stepped through […]
