“Where’s the pantry?” alternative ideas to a huge pantry

I work in real estate. It is my passion. However, being in this profession means I am incredibly picky (okay, I’m completely bougie), thanks to many beautiful homes I have toured. Don’t judge me for it.

I like nice things.

So, when it was OUR family’s turn for a big move, I was a bit biased, and well…downright bratty. My husband sent me pics of a home he felt really good about. The home had a purple door, so I of course was NOT interested. I mean, I’m the professional here. *pffft*

yep, that is purple alright.

I begrudgingly agreed to tour it with my husband. As soon as we opened the faded purple door, and were standing in that foyer, and it happened (picture the following experience in slow motion for full effect). I looked at my husband and we were both hit with an actual (not actual) bolt of lightning, from our heads to our toes.

For real. That thing I look for in my clients’ faces, the magic, you know? We felt it, and that moment, I knew it had to be our home. We had to fight other buyers for it, but eventually it was ours!

The home is in a great neighborhood, and was built in the early 90s. We LOVE the floor plan, the mature trees, the neighbors and feel of the whole house. It’s just SOLID, you know? We are so thrilled to live in that home! And yes, the door is now painted black.

But there is one small, teensy weensy detail:  THERE. IS. NO. PANTRY. *sad face*

Tall cupboard to the right of the ovens, where I store pretty much all dry goods.

What am I going to do with the lone tall and deep cupboard? We have 4 kids, and we often host friends and family in our home for parties or extended visits. Always dishing out food to the many random kids who come and go through our home. I love it, though! I am a self-admitted Costco junky who buys way more than I need (ask my friend Cynthia, who patiently attempts to teach me how to keep my kitchen organized as she cleans up after our crazy clan)! Where to put all of my duplicate jars of peaches and 8 jars of peanut butter (half of which are opened)?

There simply is not room for all of my crucial (not crucial) food items. I need ideas.

I turned to Pinterest, and found some GEMS. So, yes… I am in the planning stages of remodeling our kitchen. (Early planning stages, honey. Don’t worry.) Eventually, the wall in my kitchen that separates the kitchen from the formal dining room will be gone, and I’ll have a super long island with a lot more room!

THE DILEMMA. BIG PANTRY VS. INCORPORATED PANTY SHELVING?

Rob Lowe’s giant pantry in Montecito

I mean, who DOESN’T want a huge pantry? That’s one of the most impressive features in new homes, right? But I’m on the fence here. I may be considering an open kitchen with well-planned storage, some open and some closed behind gorgeous cabinetry, rather than a massive pantry. (Don’t hate me!)

 

Check out some of my shelving muses…

Found this simple and well-planned shelving from danslesac.co

I’ll admit, this concept makes me a little nervous… I mean, shouldn’t I add a huge pantry when we remodel?? Yet, it would steal valuable space from our living areas. And if the shelves are all planned at the right heights and depths, my storage will be rockin’!

What is your vote? Bigger kitchen with smaller, shallow shelving or giant pantry, even if it makes your kitchen a little smaller?

Thanks for playin’! Heather

COVID-19 tips for homeowners before you list!

Hi guys! Who could have predicted such a roller coaster such as this to throw off your plans?

Are you worried about the housing market? You are not alone. Nobody has a crystal ball that predicts what is coming next.

During a pandemic, careers can change, family circumstances adjust, and people still need to MOVE. Even if interest rates go up & down, and home sales slow (I have not seen this in my area yet, but see it in other states), or sales prices decline, people still have to move for various reasons.

If you are ready to list your home, but do not want a crowd of buyers pushing in your door with dirty shoes and hacking on everything, you are not being paranoid. You are being smart!

The Utah Association of REALTORS® recommends:

I have heard from colleagues that some people are not taking COVID-19 seriously, and refuse to take care to disinfect, wear gloves or masks…etc. Please do not find yourself eating your words. There is no reason to feel silly for asking those who enter your home to take precautions. It is not unrealistic for you to ask that buyers remove shoes, use hand sanitizer, and avoid touching any surfaces. This is actually a GREAT idea!

Take care of yourselves and those around you! Provide a little basket of anti-germ goodies for your entry: booties, gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, wipes. The World Health Organization provides a quick infographic of who could be affected by the coronavirus. Please be careful out there!

When you only have a few minutes before a buyer is coming, here’s a to-do list for that last-minute rush!

Thank you for stopping by!

Gratitude for my incredible clients!

I was updating my information on a site called “RealSatisfied”, where clients can rate and review my work. I didn’t realize just how many had been so kind to me!! Thank you all so much! You make me want to be better every day! I love you!

Here are several of these incredible testimonials. I am beyond grateful! If you were not sure whether or not your kind words matter to those with whom you work, THEY DO! I am determined to pay it forward!! xoxo Heather

“Heather was so helpful, we were glad to have her on our home buying team! With a market that seemed impossible to buy in, Heather kept us calm and confident to find our first home. She made the process seamless and easy, but more importantly, she kept the process fun! We fully intend to use her again when we’re ready to move.” -Adam and Kylee

“Heather is amazing! My husband and I knew she was the realtor for us immediately. She is very honest, great personality, and does her research. Heather made the process of selling our house so easy. I highly recommend her as your realtor. She is truly amazing! And goes above and beyond to make her clients feel at ease.” -Amy

“If you’re looking for a genuine, honest and amazing realtor, you need to partner with Heather. Her passion for real estate and client service go above and beyond all expectations. She is the most caring, loving and genuine person I know and I’d recommend her to anyone.” – Michele

“Having worked with Heather in capacities other than real estate, we found her to be very professional and work very hard. She has shown love and compassion and has been able to influence people very well. She was very attentive to our needs. She made us feel like we were her only clients even though we knew she was dealing with other clients at the same time. Heather was very professional through the whole process. She has a special talent at helping clients get the best care. We fully trusted Heather with the entire home buying experience. If there was ever a time she didn’t have an answer for us she was honest about it and helped us the best she could. She did her research well.” – Amber and Ryan

“Heather Johnson is the very best. She is always willing to help and always available. Her success as a realtor is evident in the homes she sells but even more so in the relationships she creates. We would recommend her to family and friends alike. You will be happy!” – Edward Axley, Davies Design Build

“I do not even know where to begin. I am currently moving from California to Utah which is a huge transition for me. My husband is getting transferred and I never thought I would be selling my beautiful home in California and moving to another state! After a brief bad experience with a different realtor, I randomly found Heather on the internet and took another chance on a realtor, blindly hoping this would work out! Little did I know that I would literally meet an angel here on earth. She is not only my realtor, but has also become my friend. She goes above and beyond for her clients, as she has proved this to us time and time again. I cannot express how professional, kind , and down right amazing our experience with Heather has been. She has video taped dozens of homes in our search to find the perfect one for us even when we had to be in California- she made sure we didn’t miss out on a thing! If you ever need a realtor, you would be lucky to get the chance to work with Heather! If you have any questions – feel free to reach out to me. I have no problem sharing my experience.” – Garry and Wendi

“Heather went the extra mile with us and was very fun and professional to house shop with. Her winning personality on positive energy makes her an asset to any organization. Our personal needs for the home are very specific and rare to find. Heather was continually patient with us despite having to visit numerous houses. She made the experience fun and exciting. I commented that I was almost sad when we found a home because we wouldn’t get to go spend the day with Heather anymore. She put our needs at the highest priority missing appointments and always having snacks or water so we could keep from getting hangry. What an awesome lady!!!” -Scott and Melayne

“Heather Johnson was always ambitious and proactive about every area of the sale. We were continually impressed! Her personality as an agent was perfect for us. She was always professional and patient, but always kept an element of fun and humor in the process as well. We felt confident in her every step of the way, and she made the process extremely easy for us. Our experience selling with her was excellent, and we were extremely pleased with the outcome. We would happily recommend her to anyone!” -Ryan and Darci

“Heather is not only a dear friend of ours, but THE BEST REALTOR EVER! She’s very professional and went above and beyond in every way possible. Heather is beautiful inside and out; She’s so genuine, down-to-earth, fun and funny, and has the biggest heart. Her amazing qualities were very much needed, and appreciated and made our buying experience so much better. We love and adore Heather, and would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone! 5 stars all around!!!” – Josh and Alyson

“Heather was amazing. She took charge and fulfilled all our needs and wants. I can’t imagine a better agent. ” – Lara

“Over the past year, Heather has been nothing but amazing to work with. From day 1, I knew she was the right realtor for us. She brought a positivity to the process that I just loved, and even more importantly she has a buyers eye and identified many areas in the home that with a little change here and a little change there would really make the home sing. Heather was the common theme through it all, from paint suggestions, staging the home, open houses, strong marketing investments to ultimately attracting the right buyer for our property. Amazing!” Jamie

“Heather went above and beyond to take care of my wife and I. We came to her from the recommendation of my mother with 40 days to find a place to live. Somehow, she waved her magic wand and within a week we had visited almost a dozen houses and found the one we liked. Then she went to bat to get us a great deal and take care of all our needs so we were able to close, clean, and move in on time! Amazing experience! I have never seen anybody work so hard.” Brenton and Kaitlynn

“Heather Johnson was knowledgeable in helping us sell our home, so we felt it sold in a timely manner at a good price. She has such a loving personality that is easy to work with and you can tell that she genuinely cares about you. She was so sweet in letting my kids call her ‘Agent Heather’, it is our nickname for her. We appreciate all the help she gave in moving us too, Wow, that is above and beyond! I would recommend Heather as an agent because I know that she would see the needs of any client she has and help them to the best of her ability.” Crystal and Ryan

“We are so grateful to Heather for all her help in selling our home. She staged it beautifully and was always willing to answer any questions we had. It was great having such an approachable, kind, friendly advocate on our side through it all!” Jenna and Connor

“Heather Johnson is extremely organized, thorough and aggressive when it comes to real estate negotiations which is exactly what is needed in order to be successful in this very competitive market. She has all of the skills and intellect to guide her clients through this complicated process and we were incredibly pleased with her expertise in helping us navigate this process. The most important part of this process for us was having an agent that would respond to us in a timely manner. Heather would usually respond to any and all questions within a matter of a few minutes. Secondly, we need an advocate, someone to stick up for OUR interests and with Heather that’s exactly what you get. We would recommend her to anybody” Jeff and Melenie

“Heather worked hard to find properties that were acceptable. Because of the complications due to the lack of the sale of my property we had to go to plan “C” to fund the purchase of the my lot . If Heather did not know about one of the details involving the sale she found out what it was. Thank you Heather” Chuck

“From the minute we met with Heather to the final day of sale, we felt confident and well taken care of. Heather was positive and so helpful through the whole process. She kept things moving and went above and beyond what was necessary. I would easily recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.” Susan and Mark

“I rarely take the time to fill out a survey for anything but thought I should for Heather Johnson. She made this entire process easy and painless. From the information gathering to the closing I never felt like I did not know what was going on or where in the process we were. I never felt pressured or out of control. My wife and I were very pleased with the entire process and would highly recommend her to anyone needing an agent.” Jason

Heather is very upbeat, helpful, and attentive to detail. She listened to our needs and did everything she could to make it happen. Justin and Sherrie

Choose Your Own Adventure: Should I Build or Buy a Home?

dream home

The hubby and I love this home! We want it.

I bet if I asked you right now, “describe your dream home”, you’ll get a pretty vivid image in your mind. Am I right?

If you are like me, you probably have a “Dream Home” Pinterest Board. Mine only has a mere 981 pins. I mean, I’m a pragmatist. Sheesh! Okay, so I’m a dreamer.

“We often think we understand what we do not understand” – Rumi…or not Rumi, it was me.

The nitty gritty: misconceptions exist among homebuyers when comparing new construction with existing homes. 

Homebuyers often search for homes in price ranges, thinking that the new construction homes are going to cost the same as they are listed, and that the existing homes seem super pricey comparatively, so they want to lowball those darn older homes. Not exactly, peeps.

Still reading?

I like you. You’re cool.

Let’s pretend we have homebuyers who are qualified to buy a home that costs up to $400,000, so they want to look online for a home that will cost $350,000 to $400,000.

As of today, in October 2018, in my lil’ hometown of Saratoga Springs, Utah, there are 50 actively listed homes on the Wasatch Front Regional Multiple Listings Services, Inc. in that price range.

Of those 50 listings:

16 are existing homes (not brand new)

44 are “to be built” (new construction)

New vs existing: Apples to apples, right? You guessed it: WRONG. Two totally different ball games, folks.

Note: Many of those existing homes have been on the market for much longer than they expected, due to the crazy supply of new construction listings. In some cases, you may even sense a buyers’ market among existing homes: not necessarily the case with new construction.

Maybe you’ve always thought you’d like to build your own home, but aren’t sure what costs may add up during construction. But what if you buy an older home with a finished basement and a fence for a great price, but it has nasty old wallpaper?! For the LOVE!!

lambDon’t fret, little lamb. Let’s figure out what works best for your individual situation.

Get yourself connected with a knowledgeable real estate agent you trust and like to be around. This is a huge suggestion for you to have a successful home search. We love to help you from the get-go, to help you avoid major issues, and to consult with you and guide you as you take steps, and in the right order.

Where are you living currently? Need to sell your current home or give notice to a landlord? Get that ball rolling, ASAP.

First, find out what you can ACTUALLY afford:

Believe me, this will save you ZILLIONS in headaches and disappointment. Contact a qualified loan expert. I have a select few I highly recommend. This loan officer will listen to what you hope to achieve, collect important information, such as your W-2 forms, pay stubs, bank statements…etc. This information will stay confidential between you and your lender. He or she should run your credit to get the most accurate picture of what you can afford. Do not worry, you can shop lenders a bit within several days without it counting as more than 1 credit run. Bonus, right?

Don’t forget to save up your cash. Don’t be all spendy-spendy right now, Lawrence. That can ruin this whole ordeal. Do all you can to pinch pennies, avoid any credit card debt, hefty car purchases, or really ANY major purchases. Steady, man. Steady.

Second, create your wish list.

wish list

Here are a few questions to ask yourself before deciding what you want. What are my favorite neighborhoods? Do I mind road noise? Do I want mature trees, or no trees in my yard? Do I need an expansive view? A front porch?  Do you mind construction noise and dust in a new neighborhood?

Here is part of my own dream home wish list, if you need a little help with yours:

  • TONS of trees
  • PRIVACY
  • Gathering rooms for entertaining
  • Large yard
  • Big windows

Share your wish list with your REALTOR® as soon as you nail down a few top priorities for your next home. Be sure you know what you HAVE to have, and what you can do without. Stay focused, Lawrence.

Third, think about this for real: build or buy.

Let’s hash out some basic pros in favor of each.

New construction:

  • Customized to your liking.
  • Hand-pick the location.
  • Updated energy/safety features.

Existing:

  • Finished basement.
  • Landscaped, may have mature trees.
  • Appliances, sheds, fences are usually included in list price. You usually know what you’re paying for from the beginning.

Now for some possible cons of each.

New construction:

  • Costs for upgrades/changes not included on the MLS or initial contract. Surprise!
  • Lengthy or unpredictable timing for completion due to various hiccups.
  • Provide your own window treatments, a fence, a yard, finishing the basement, and anything else above the actual finished home.

Existing:

  • May need to make repairs, paint, replace carpet, or remodel the kitchen…etc.
  • Unable to remodel some of the outdated features to your complete satisfaction or within your budget.
  • Costly repairs come along more quickly than with new construction, like roof replacement or buying a new furnace.

I know. That wasn’t much help. I tried. Here’s the deal: you will know in your gut if you have the cash to make new construction happen the way you hope it can happen. Be honest with yourself, your agent, and your lender. Hash it out.

Fourth, tour the best homes and communities.

driving

Meet with your REALTOR® to drive around the newer and older neighborhoods. Your agent will often have experience in the very neighborhoods you like, and can save you a lot of research. Be open to either newer or older homes, unless you’re absolutely decided.

Pay attention to the items on your wish list. Anything stand out to you as something you want to add to your list? Do you want to be closer to that new school, park, or lake? What vibes are these areas giving you? Take note, and talk it over with your agent. What have you decided really isn’t that crucial? Cut it off the wish list.

Be open to new construction communities and mature neighborhoods. Your agent likely has some online search options that help you hone in on exactly what types of homes you’re interested in touring. It takes some major energy to tour homes, so be ready for some cranky moments. It’s normal. You got this!

Fifth, DECIDE on the ENDING of this saga!

PATHS

You are now fully aware of several of the pros and cons, and you have narrowed your search to the area you want to live.

What have you decided? Really?? Awesome! So exciting, right?!

  • If you chose to build, select ending A.
  • If you are planning to buy an existing home, select ending B!

Ending A: You chose to build! Hooray!

How fun will this be?!

  • Rookie building tip: the first time you tour the new construction model homes, and meet with various custom builders, be sure to go with your buyers’ agent. Some national builders require we come with you, otherwise, they won’t allow you to be represented by your own REALTOR®. Instead the builder will require that you work only with the builders’ own agent. Lame. Who wants to go to court and be represented only by the other side’s attorney? Not me.
  • During the building process, you may find out that even though the home was listed at $399,000, it doesn’t end up being that price. Like…at all. With new construction, pretty much every builder will tack on costs for any upgraded options, above what the list price includes. Be sure you know the difference. Get every inclusion in writing, bro. If you want to stay at $399,000, you may find that gives you laminate countertops and cheap flooring. Cue disappointment. 
  • If you find a new construction listing for $350,000, and you wisely select upgrades, you might be able to stay within the budget of $350,000-$400,000. Everything adds up quickly, so be incredibly picky about what you choose! Keep in mind: there are closing costs, too. If you are buying your land on your own, not from a big builder, be sure to ask your lender what loan products are the best when planning to build.
  • There will be a variety of online reviews for builders. Keep in mind that many will be negative. This does not necessarily mean the reviews are accurate. Some people are just plain old hard-to-please, or maybe they didn’t read this article prior to building. It is a lot of work, and you need high levels of flexibility and a positive attitude. Not all buyers should build. Stamina is a requirement, fo’ sho.
  • There are many smaller builders who don’t even have a website, but have integrity. They may be worth a shot. There are incredibly gifted high-end builders. There is an array of everything in between. Ask us.
  • Dig deeper. Talk to those who have built with your top choices, find those who have been living in their home for many years to find out how the builder treated them when problems arose after they moved into their home. This is often one of the most telling points.
  • Be sure to get all agreements in writing. Your agent will assist you in organization of communications and all documents, rest assured. Do not sign anything that you do not understand, even if a builder says it is required. (Ask your agent or gain legal counsel for more serious legal questions.) There is always room for negotiation. Never feel as though you have to agree to everything. You have options.
  • Always get informed of what is happening and what is next. Again, it’s our job to help you with that nugget.
  • Be sure to allow for many extra weeks beyond the estimated construction completion date before setting your sights on moving in. It takes many extra steps beyond what seems like completion to get your certificate of occupancy. In other words: keep your rental a bit longer, or trespass upon Auntie Sue for an extra month or so, just in case.
  • Building a home can be incredibly stressful, so gear up for an adventure! The reward will be that you have accomplished something HUGE, and it is exactly what you wanted!

 

Ending B: You chose to buy and existing home? Woot!!

You are a smart one, little lamb.

  • When you chose a home that is listed in your price range, you will likely get it for that price or maybe even lower! You’ll pay some in closing costs (speak with your lender and agent about that amount), but if you plan well, you can keep it well within your budget!
  • When touring existing homes, look for the quality of the important stuff: structure, floor plan, location, and feeling or other crucial items on your list. Overlook bad paint colors, design, ugly furniture, clutter, and even smells (I know, right? There are fixes for smells, tho). Be on the lookout for homes that have good bones, rather than just trendy color schemes.
  • Narrow down your search to your favorite 3 homes, and kick out the rest for now. Ask your agent to compare the top 3, to make sure they are each fairly priced. Then determine which is one that fits most of your needs.

My brother-in-law, Creston Inderrieden, a highly successful real estate broker in Houston taught me the 80-10-10 rule.

  • 80% of the home will be PERFECT. All you wanted!
  • 10% of the home will have characteristics you wish you could change, but cannot. Such as a loud road, power lines, or it faces the direction you didn’t want.
  • The last 10% will have characteristics you really dislike and CAN change once you save up, take the time and put in some effort.

Doesn’t that sound doable? You can find your dream home. Don’t give up. Stay focused on what you truly want, and stay within your budget. Your agent will walk you through it all, so do not ever feel alone! Your questions are not stupid! We love getting asked questions. If we do not know the answer, we will do all we can to find the answer for you.

  • Remember, you’ll also have a home inspector who will be checking out the home during the due diligence period. You will be given a full report of the home’s condition to understand and accept, or to utilize for further negotiations or repairs.
  • When your agent brings together the best lenders, escrow officers (that’s in title…another article) and experts to the table, you’ll be in good hands. We want you to work with the best in the business, so you are happy with your experience.
  • Buying an existing home can be crazy at times, with unknowns and surprises. However, you’ll also be surprised at how wonderful it feels to make it your own, envisioning what potential your property has to become what you dream it can be, and making it a reality!

HAPPY home-building or home-searching!
