Great House – Needs Work? Check Out 203k Rehab Mortgages!

July 17th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

Home inspectors and insurance companies can be notoriously picky about what they consider “habitable” – and therefore mortgage-worthy. For instance, a little bit of chipped paint and a few missing tiles can be enough to disqualify a house from traditional FHA financing – which is why many sellers with fixer-uppers insist on either cash or […]

How To Consistently Save 7% Or More At Home Depot & Lowe’s!

May 16th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

While Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore discount outlets can be awesome for picking up the lion’s share of construction and decor materials alike at a rock-bottom price, there are some other things (paint, custom wood, mass quantities of certain materials,) that require a trip to retail outlets like Home Depot or Lowe’s. With that said, I […]

Keeping Renovation Costs Low: Visit The Habitat For Humanity ReStore!

May 10th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

Whether you’re about to undertake a complete gut rehab or a relatively simple DIY renovation/upgrade, you’ll likely find out in a hurry that the cost of basic materials, appliances, fixtures, etc. can add up quickly – even for a basic project that eschews high-end things like granite countertops, etc. Craigslist can be a great place […]

Why I Switched Brokers…

May 9th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

A few people have asked me why I recently made the switch from Keller Williams to United Real Estate. I’d like to clarify that switching to United from KWCC wasn’t done because KW is a bad place – far from it. It’s purely a business decision; between the commission splits, franchising fees, tech fees, office […]

Refinish Old Tubs & Tiles; It Saves A Fortune Over Replacement!

March 12th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

It’s often been said that kitchens and baths are what really sell homes – and I’ve found this to largely be true. Both of these rooms see a lot of use, and making these spaces as appealing as possible to a wide spectrum of potential buyers should help your house go under contract fairly quickly. […]

Updating a Rental Bathroom on the Cheap!

March 10th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

(Or, how I made my old place into what I wanted without losing my security deposit.) Upon moving to Philly in 2011 – and before buying my current abode – I rented a cute little apartment with an atrociously pink bathroom floor.  (It should be mentioned here that the floor didn’t even match the tiles/paint […]

Demystifying the Home Buying Process: Review

February 8th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

Earlier today, I held a free seminar at the Kingsessing Library on the ins and outs of buying a home – and I’d like to extend my sincere thanks once again to Conita Pierson, the library branch director, and to everyone who attended! Lots of great questions and conversations, and I can’t wait to do […]

Should I Sell My Current House Before Buying A New One?

January 14th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

In short, purchasing a new house before you’ve sold your current residence can be extremely nerve-wracking, as the potential scenario of being on the hook for two mortgage payments at once is enough to stress out even the calmest client. However, it should be noted that making any offers on a new property contingent on […]

How To Sell Your House Quickly – Even In A Down Market!

December 12th, 2013 by Kimberly Wingfield

Wintertime has long been known as the “off-season” for real estate – but while buyers can indeed find some fantastic bargains this time of year, sellers need not necessarily shy away from listing their homes once the cold winds blow. The advent of the internet (and plenty of readily-available information on listings, mortgages, etc. that […]

Is A Condo Purchase Right For You?

November 22nd, 2013 by Kimberly Wingfield

If you’re looking for a way to build equity without dealing with a good chunk of typical homeownership-related maintenance and headaches, a condo purchase may indeed be a terrific real estate solution. There are plenty of great condos in different price ranges available throughout the Philly metro area, but – as always – it pays […]
