"Thousand eighteen president of the national association of realtors. Elizabeth welcome to real estate today. Thank you very much. Good morning. Good morning. So Elizabeth right off the bat in your experience. When a house goes on the market. How important is the land? Escaping. When you arrive at a house to see a house or your first impression is a ex career picture online. It become a very important piece of the marketing of your home. Okay. So if you had to homes that are nearly identical one within okay? Yard kind of a rough lawn overgrown shrubs, and no real plan, but the other one with a great yard perfect lawn trimmed shrubbery and inviting look how different with the values of those two homes tend to be I actually think it's probably immeasurable because it could be the difference between selling your home and not selling your home and having your house on the market for many, many more months than the other property. It could absolutely be detrimental to the sale of your house. Now when you're buyers arrive at a house how much of an impact does the exterior and the landscaping have on their overall opinion of the property. But you have to think the first thing that is going to do is generally walk up to the friend to work. And so they're looking at everything exterior around in that property, whether it foundation plantings, whether it's how the grass is kept even sweeping the sidewalk can make a big difference. Because that is their first impression in fact, sometimes about I mean, not even get out of the car to go inside to see the property if the exterior is an appealing to them has that ever happened to you when you drive up to a property and the Yard's not great and your buyer says forget it Elizabeth just keep going. Absolutely, absolutely. So what's the best approach here, a professional landscape architect or landscape designer that's pretty expensive can be a lot of money, and it certainly can be worth it. On the other hand the other place that you may want to be cautious of if there's too much exterior work to be done. If there's too much investment that a buyer's gonna make that could also affect a property. So again, that's world chicken really come in handy to kind of guide you along the right steps to take as far as what exterior improvement and maintenance are going to be reasonable for that marketplace. Okay. And how about this a place that is so elaborately landscaped the buyer gets out of the car in. Thanks, wait a minute. I'm going to have to maintain all this. We have a house in our area, which is frequently awarded accolades by local gardening club. And it is wonderful, and it's a drive by attraction. But when it came time for that homeowner to sell one of the concerns was how would they homeowner who bought it maintain it interesting? So we'd want it to be neat as a pin and appealing but not like the White House. Good point you wanted to be. Something that the average purchaser can feel comfortable maintaining them in feel excited about we hear not about outdoor living areas. The deck patios a play area for the kids are those high on buyers lists of priorities, certainly it's going to depend upon the area, which you are in the country. And that's where road trip and really come in handy. And in a very helpful in explaining those different. You know features what you're going to be important to that buyer in your specific area. But a house isn't just a place where you're living in the inside. It's a place where you're experiencing everything that that surrounded and and many of those extra features are what attract people to properties. Elizabeth you just mentioned the real tours role a real tour sees dozens of homes every single month. So they're an excellent source of ideas when it comes to ramping up the overall property that the home sits on now when a seller and the real tour meat is that part of the conversation. Absolutely absolute-. You're looking at marketing the property in marketing is going to include the staging of not only the interior.

"With those experts in the neighborhood, the plumbers electricians, it takes away a little bit of that fear because sometimes not everybody has those connections. And they they need to not make those will you make a really good point. Because you're not only paying the mortgage. You're also paying for maintenance, but it's your house, and you can maintain it. So you can make sure it's done. Right. Absolutely. And maintain it the way you want to I think that's another one of the great benefits is now, it's your home. And you can do what you want to with it. And you can add on a deck if you want or you can put that picture on a wall. Are you can decorate the outside for all those trick? Or treaters? Another scary thing is borrowing hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy that house for some people that just terrifies them. Sure, that's one of the very first things that's going to happen. When you meet with a realtor here going to have a conversation about the mortgage process. And in in a realtors are gonna recommend some lenders in the area who you can talk to about what that payment means how you pay it back. What happens if you feel you can't afford it or you or you can't payment in how to manage that process, but it's their long-term payments, and it's your investing in you. You know, you're not investing in someone else and with interest rates being lower rents being higher. It's very good thing to check into because it's very likely that you might be able to pay less in a home. Invest in yourself in someone else. Another thing we hear is it some mostly young people are afraid to get tied down. They don't want to put down roots? They wanna stay free. And that's why they don't buy a house. How about that part of one of the values of this country is freedom and being able to move and do what you wanna do? But in order to do that, it does require resources in many times, those are financial resources the best way to build wealth to have the freedom to do what you wanna do is to own that home. It's an investment in yourself and your future. And so it's a great way to really establish your financial portfolio for life. As a matter of fact is one young person told me the other day, they're going to buy a house, but they still want to live in different places all across America. So at one point those rented out and they'll move somewhere else. Solid. Absolutely. I mean, certainly you want to check with your local realtor. Find out about the communities are communities that rent better than others. And so, but it becomes an investment portfolio for you. And we are seeing that, you know, as people want to continue to move and homeowners today also become travelers and renters in property for vacation stays, so you get to have the benefit of both. Now, here's a tough one ten years ago. The financial markets crashed some people are afraid to buy a house because they're afraid that's going to happen again. Sure. That's where your local realtor really is important to have a conversation because every market is different in every market has recovered differently from that financial crash, certainly there's been different changes in lending that are going to help mitigate that for the future. So there have been some rules and regulations that have been put in place to try to avoid that which will help our home buyers and that but she wanted to talk to your local real chore about the conditions of the area where you're considering to Dubai, whether it's a first or second know, our prices, increasing. Is the inventory low or high, you know, that will give you more of a sense of a long-term investment picture. So finally, if someone gets passed all those scary things and they buy their own house.

"Home for twenty years versus you've rented for twenty years, if you've owned a home, you've invested in your long-term wealth portfolio. If you've rented you've invested in someone else's if a friend of yours who was a renter said, Elizabeth, what do you think? Should I buy a house I could afford it should I what would you tell them? We get that question. All the time. Of course, it depends upon the circumstances. Not everyone is ready for home ownership. You know, it definitely depends on a financial picture. And that's a critical piece of what a realtor does is to walk that by your through that you know, what are their goal? Are they going to be in the same community for several years? Are they gonna move do? They have, you know, interpretations for growth, and if they're going to be in a community for for a few years than absolutely especially with the cost of renting these days has continued to go up interest rates have continued to remain low. And so being in a home is it's that investment in yourself versus invest in someone else has done a lot of research into what homeownership actually means to a person to a family and to their community. I understand that homeowners are more involved in their communities that they vote more. They volunteer more. Can you tell us about that? Not only do they vote more. They pay the majority of the taxes in the neighborhoods. And so they're definitely invested in the neighborhoods, but there are other social benefits to owning a home. We know that in areas where people own homes, there's less crime. We know there is more education. There's less teen pregnancy. There's more community involvement in. So I think all of those are goals that we strive, and we value when we talk about what does it mean to live the American dream to have a piece of the American dream. And that really centers around home ownership home ownership is something that we all can rally around. I think homeownership is a human right? It's something that we would strive that. Everybody would have a safe shelter over their head a bed to sleep at night. You know, be safe in the communities that they're in. I think so it's an easy message that everyone can understand as as being a human, right? And so is the national association of realtors were proud to be that voice for Americans who are striving to have a piece of the American dream and being a country where they know that they are valued, and that homeownership and their safety is valued a lot of people, of course, say that first time homebuyers because they're making the jump from renting or maybe living at their parents house into a home of their own. That are real to really helps them get through it. But having bought and sold a dozen houses myself in my life. A real tourist really important in every transaction. You do every transaction there. There's no doubt that the first time you buy a home is such a significant milestone in your life, because you know, it's something that you're investing in, you know, you're investing in your future your future in that community your future to help you have financial success. You have an investment which could eventually help for you know, education retirement help for your children's education. Help help you achieve your dreams. You know, whether it's travel or whatever it may be. And so then becomes the journey of understanding that real estate can not only be the place that you live. But it also has the opportunity to be an investment to fund your life. And one of the things that some people may not know how hard any are works for every homeowner and every property owner in the United States. We do we have lots of conversations in Washington DC about policies that are set. And not only in DC, but states in locals back home because we all are trying to figure out, you know, the health in this country can continue to succeed and thrive. But we know that that will not happen. If we don't have active homeowners last question, Elizabeth, I've asked you this before what does home mean to you? I I live in this wonderful community, Columbia, Missouri. It's the place where my family grew up. It's the place that I know is home. It's again, it's that place you go at the end of the day. It's stats that safe spot or I can go home crash beyond my couch be with my family. You know, enjoy spend time laugh and be yourself. And and hopefully everybody feels that way about their home. I think we want that for everyone. It is a special special place in like many of said, there's no place like home, Elizabeth mendenhall CEO of Remax Boone realty in Columbia, Missouri.
