Today we're doing a braindump of everything you need to know about fireplaces in the Prescott market. Inside or outside, wood-burning or gas, we share how you can light a fire in the hearts of your buyers or sellers...even if a house has no fireplace at all.
good morning good morning hello hello hello hello peeps Diane and Randall bro here your local uh real estate team husband and wife team musical theater uh I if you come on a tour with me sometimes you’ll see as I get tired especially I start singing along delious I get Delirious so that’s all part of the treatment when you come on part of the experience part of the experience uh I’m not a good singer but it does make fun like hello let’s go to the next neighborhood and then I realize everyone’s looking at me what’s wrong with her but it keeps me going keeps the energy going so that’s song in your heart all right today we’re here to talk about fireplaces fireplaces all for them yes so first of all fireplace is a cool thing to have in presc yep uh particularly during the winter you know and during the it’s just so nice and cozy and everything else so uh people ask us a lot about fireplaces though we thought we’ just sort of unload everything we know about fireplac fireplaces so yeah one key thing is um a lot of times people opt not to put one in especially if they’re building because you know it saves some money and this that and the other but I will say for resale in particular in Prescot yes uh you really should it’s a good investment spend that money get that fireplace in creates a focal point for your grave room that’s right and I have had new numerous people come in they absolutely we’ve had many many houses some without a fireplace and they’re like we absolutely love everything about this house but no fireplace no fireplace so a couple of things about that number one it’s very easy to install a fireplace yes you do not have to cut through your roof and make a chimney and all that you can actually make them now you can vent them out through a wall onto your porch very simple very easy very safe so very safe and if we our fireplace does that both of them we have two we have one upstairs one downstairs they both vent out they do no big deal and so if you are to identify a home and you want one we’ve got some good folks that can come and install one for you and it goes anywhere from five maybe to 10,000 depending on your selections and what you pick and and the stone the ston work is the most expensive thing because it’s labor intensive the rest of it’s really no big deal yeah so some people here do beautiful stone just to The Mantel some people do it all the way up to the ceiling um they do river rock they do slay I mean they you name it they do it it’s beautiful um and now they have the new ones um everything here will be gas run to you will not find any wood burning fireplaces very inside very few homes will have it um it’s kind of become uh a fire thing a fire hazard things so people don’t like smoke in their homes so so it’s a you know there’s this ongoing evolution of fireplaces so it used to be if someone had a fireplace in the home and they Fire Hazards burned wood and and there’s something to be said for a wood fire but there’s something to be said against it Cinders and smoke in your home and everything so for the most part there are no fire places with wood inside uh they do have wood burning stoves pellet stoves things like very popular here and that will heat up your whole house they will it’s amazing mhm the first thing they did when there was the conversion over uh away from real wood into gas is you had these ceramic logs so ceramic logs were the first thing you had had to make it look like it was a real fire and and there was real wood and real Cinders and everything and there’s still a lot of those around uh but now it’s like people have kind of separated the idea of a fireplace and wood in their mind so a lot of the fireplaces we’re seeing now are are the modern type with the White Rock way more contemporary um and they’ll be instead of the big square with a fan to push the heat out they’ll be more rectangular narrow um some of them will have you know you’ve seen it the glass rock and different color rocks and you can change the color of the flame and so and uh some people here have kind of a dated fireplace they call the fireplace company and update that so that too is an option if you are not a fan of the heavy River Rock and you want to have something a little more contemporary the key of the fireplace I think in terms of the type of fireplace you want is it depends on the kind of home you want if you have a contemporary home you probably want to go for the newer contemporary fireplaces we just uh we just met with a a lady who’s selling a French provincial home mm and her fireplace is gas but it it looks like a traditional wood beautiful that goes well you know you put a contemporary fireplace in that that would look sort of goofy right so yeah you you want to kind of lean into whatever the overall style of the home is absolutely so if you’re coming here and your heart is set on a fireplace you find a house that I just love everything but it’s minus the fireplace don’t let that throw you we can that’s we can fix that we can fix that if there’s a fireplace That’s Heavy brass from s you know with the 1776 with the the eagle remember we all know what that is we all remember you know yeah again fireplace can come in and upgrade you in no time flat and make it more current so if you’re thinking also about building a house just add the fireplace add the fireplace if you are a seller particularly if you have one of those homes that doesn’t Scream by Me By Me by me put in a fireplace they’re not expensive you would be surprised at how important fireplace places are to our buyers here we hear in this town we hear it most of the buyers that they mention I want a fireplace it’s as important as backsplash uh uh marble tops three car G three car garages I mean it is a very important feature so if you don’t have one I would think seriously well either put it in or offer it as or offer as an option as an option say hey give fireplace allowance fireplace allowance and what we do is uh we’ll have a a fireplace virtually installed uh you know doing the Photoshop thing to give people an idea what it might look like and that’s a that actually works really well it does then they can see the vision then they can see the vision and and that’s good for them yeah so in terms of outdoor fireplaces in some areas they really don’t want you to use wood although some people do uh but even outside outside the uh um fireplaces and what do you call them little fire pits fire pits yeah a lot of those are gas as well and a lot of them are moving away from the wood look and more just rock just anything that will hold the Heat and radiate it uh just nice and clean easy to light easy to turn off no fuss no mus yep uh so that’s easy peasy easy peasy yeah and we love it yeah we love our fireplace uh I don’t even run the Heat or sometimes during the winter I just put my fireplace on I get cozy yeah and uh it’s it’s delightful especially when it starts to snow right yeah that’s right couple of tips um so if your fireplace so most people are familiar with the fireplace there’s like a little grade under it you open up the grade and that’s where you the the pilot light and all that stuff is that is p um that is the older the older versions uh now they have automatic sparkers yeah uh if you have a fireplace you you’re looking at a home or your building a home uh or you just bought a home and you can’t open the gr chances are it is an auto sparker um when you are lighting it for the first time it takes longer than you think to light like maybe up to a minute so uh so don’t think your fireplace is perfect it doesn’t work it doesn’t work yeah don’t so we have gone over to many a house three or four times I’ve my fireplace doesn’t work my fireplace doesn’t work and I go is like where’s the switch there it is and I turn it on and they’ll say see it doesn’t work and I say just wait just wait just wait yop so particularly if it hasn’t been used in a while so which is pretty cool to have an automatic igniter because in the olden days you’d have to get the fire stick you know and so it’s it’s all good stuff people it’s all good stuff

local presc realtor team that’s right here in presc happy to uh help you out as you as you journey into our little town and try to find your next place so if you are this is primarily for sellers because buyers will know horrifying home Styles when they see them you may be a seller you may have inherited a home that has horrifying Styles in it now when you put these horrifying Styles in you know I’m sure it was the cats meow sure but we thought we’d mention just a few things that have been singled out either by us or experts uh as things you just you just can’t do so things that also make us laugh out loud so one of the things that really so saw this article article horrifying home Styles we had one we had we had a we have a horrifying home style in our home yes and that is the horrifying home style is bench seating at a dining room table I don’t see anything wrong with it I love it but hey evidentally it was a very trendy thing when we bought our dining room table that’s right it’s on the way way out it is on the way out something you might want to think about replacing as a practical standpoint if you are the middle person on the on in the bench you’re kind of screwed like if you have to go to the bathroom you got to it’s like sitting in the middle seat in an airline you it’s like you got to you got to get everyone up to to get out I agree but our friends are fun and it’s even more fun after several cocktails to see him try to wiggle out of try wiggle out yeah so that’s kind of part of the fun but apparently that’s dated evidently that’s horrifying that was that I didn’t think that was that horrifying I don’t think it was that yeah I cuz I own it yeah you know I have that so that’s kind of py I wouldn’t even blink at that but the other good one that we love is and we’ve come across it now several times saloon doors saloon doors into the bathroom yeah why yeah yeah saloon doors in a bathroom not saloon doors in the potty room yeah for your potty it’s just saloon doors that’s Salon doors I don’t know people well that’s not very effective if you know what I mean who side Cowboy I’m coming in I don’t know what the idea is I don’t know I mean you swing those doors open there’s no privacy because they don’t really cover anything uh it doesn’t cover anything and then there saloon doors just into the bathroom in general and it’s like wow saloon doors yeah we don’t have saloon doors no we don’t at least we don’t tell anybody Our Salon doors I don’t when we play Cowboy and make her go to the oh God yeah Sal doors listen saloon doors are a joke if you want to put saloon doors on your bar or your man cave is kind of something fun uh that’s fun and that’s fine we have restaurants downtown you know our town kind of has a little Western theme and they do the saloon doors but uh into the master bathroom not so much that’s a not not a western experience the other thing in bathrooms is all white whes white white white walls white counters white it’s too much yes it’s too much Hospital aren’t even all white anymore people will say oh it’s all white it looks like a hospital when’s the last time you saw an all-white hospital they don’t do it anymore they don’t cuz no one likes it looks clinical no one it looks yeah it does that’s a good word clinical and God forbid the splattering alone of any anything any any major event shows everything you might be having yes could be bad you want she that you don’t want to share that you don’t want to have carpeting carpeting in the bathroom carpeting in the bathroom that is horrifying particularly around the toilet oh every time and I’ve been in some beautiful homes with that carpeting all the way up to the potty and I think all the way up to the pot Yakama gross disgusting uh same thing splatter splatter I don’t want to even know what has been splattered on that carpeting yeah you you don’t put carpeting on a toilet seat you don’t put a carpeting around the toilet seed you don’t want anything absorbent other than toilet paper near your toilet it’s just none of none of that is good that is horrifying none of that is good peach peach walls peach peach Mau mauve mauve walls yeah peach peach is uh you know I I if you’re if you like Peach go a little darker for apricot or terracotta or up a lot yeah mix it up a little bit more the peach it was just overdone it looks very country in a bad the worst possible way uh yeah Peach and it looks very Grandma it screens old person lives here old person has lived here and our old person has died here yeah yeah yeah that is true that um and Mau walls and seafoam green carpeting all of that Let It Go Let It Go obviously popcorn sealings we talked about popcorn sealings in our ASB bestus uh video popcorn sealings are a no no yep um what else uh some of these swag light fixtures yeah that just scream again grandma lived here grandma recently died here yeah be real careful with faux finishes oh yes we went into a beautiful beautiful million dooll home giant pillars which that was okay but then they did a faux finish that I don’t even think the Romans or or the the Greeks had painted cuz you know the Greeks did paint very garish yeah they did originally they did did you know that yes they did I did so but we don’t need to duplicate it now in the 2000s no no and so don’t do faux finishes everyone knows those everyone knows those columns are not real marble even though you tried to make it marble yeah it’s not you’re not fooling anybody they they do have some Modern faux finishes that don’t look dated but if your faux finish is more than a if you do a faux finish it’s going to age quickly yes you know you know you probably don’t want to keep your faux finished for more than about three or five years because they age very they’re very trendy and they age very quickly yes yes so you know things like that columns are kind of dated columns are dated are very dated so when you’re getting ready to sell maybe have someone come out and see you know how about if I put like a beautiful wooden column you know like more rustic or something anything but how about U fake crysanthemum oh yeah I have to take a deep breath all the silk flowers the silk it has to go by byebye horrifying uh plant shelves uh with covered with silk on top not good yeah so so not to be uh not to be insensitive but just to kind of state it for what it is chances are if you’re incet and you’re a seller you are of a certain age if you are a buyer you are of a certain age but not as old as the first uncertain age so your sellers you know they have faux finishes that have been around a while or whatever you need to understand that younger people come in even though they’re not really young anymore they’re younger than you are and they have a different sense of what style is and they will be horrified by the thing horrify is a good word because we’ve had people like they can’t see past it they can’t get P at all you’re right and not only that curtains no one uses curtains anymore yeah so you go in a house with the heavy drapes and the what do you call them the pleat at the top at the top it just screams or what do they call it pooling at the bottom what do they call pudd puddling pudd anything called puddling I like puddling though I have to say I’m not opposed to puddling I was okay with it until I heard it was called puddling and then I’m back to the I’m back to the carpet and the bathroom we could never do puddling because we have cats and dogs that would sleep on it and decide that’s a good spot to yeah take a Le yeah all of these things that we’re mentioning they’re things that are relatively easy and cheap to fix absolutely so then you know just by adjusting those few little things helps you get top dollar and sell quicker and S quicker um people look at something and you know especially if it’s in a higher price point and they think well gez I’m spending over a million dollars and I got to come in here and gut it I got to repaint it I got to scrape popcorn just do it now do it ahead of time people will put an offer in right away and you’ll get top dollar and and the sellers will say you know yeah but buyers can see past it they can’t no they can’t they just they can’t they can’t it is so horrifying they run screaming from your house even my people who say oh I can see past anything they they’re they can’t they’re in the middle of it and they’re like I just don’t When Buyers come in we show them a lot of homes and uh there are a lot of good homes here so you’re kind of you’re competing with other good homes and the one that they’re going to buy is the one that’s going to touch their heart yep and no one’s going to you’re not going to touch anyone’s heart with carpet in the bathroom it’s not going to touch anyone’s heart it’s it’s just not it’s not going to be it’s not going to touch their soul it’s not going to touch their soul yeah so fix that

The results of your property inspection can make or break the deal. Find out what separates the good inspectors from the bad ones, and how to make sure you have the right one on your team whether you're buying or selling.
hello hello hello hello peeps our fellow friends out there fellow friends fellow friends fellow pickle peeps no that’s us that’s this is that’s them yeah we are Diane and Randall bro that’s who we are that’s who we are we are local real estate agents here in the lovely mountain town of Prescot Arizona presc Arizona we love to do our little videos here we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoy making them and giggling and getting our way through it um we wanted to talk about something that we come across a lot um we get phone calls from fellow agents what inspector are you using and I say the name who’s our great inspector yes we’ll say his name yeah Matt gormer Matt gormer property National National Property inspection National Property inp we just call him that we just call him that he’s great guy great friend great part of our great part of our team he works super super hard he will go in and really give you the honest truth yeah and we have run across we’ve used Inspectors That Gloss Over other inspectors that gloss over very important things yeah so does that help you you know close the house it does but you might have a big problem later so we would rather have a tough inspector who really catches some very bad things so our buyers aren’t caught with this later and have a big problem later on down the line so sometimes if you get a uh you know an inspector and he’s really he finds a lot of things sometimes you have to make the hard decision and say I have to walk away yeah and it’s well you should have that option if you didn’t know about the problems then you wouldn’t have that option we’ve had real estate agents uh tell us oh you know I I I heard about him he he uh um cancels a lot of transactions you know he he’s such a I’m glad because that’s what I want him to do exactly I I want the best for my buyers I want them to come out Buy A Home ahead and buy a home that they know is safe reliable that they aren’t going to have big expensive repairs later um we’re not in it just just for us to get our commission let’s just sell it oh I’m sorry is that broken just don’t say anything gloss it over it’s no big deal they can fix it later evidently a lot of do that we’ve had oh you need to find another inspector you know it’s no no we don’t because that’s what we want and I would go so far to say if your agent hasn’t canceled out uh you know transactions in the past because of due diligence then you need to find another agent due diligence needs to be real it’s very important our job is to represent you and make sure your home is in the best and most efficient operating um what condition condition very you conditional work yeah but you know we we don’t want you to buy move in and then find out oh wow the grinder pump isn’t working oh wow um there’s a the the slab is cracked oh wow there’s a leak in my roof and nobody noticed it nobody caught it you know we value you know our inspector you know we we really a AAR he does a great job if there’s something wrong he’s going to find it he’s going to find it and uh and and at the same time if it’s good it’s great he’s delighted he’s like this is an amazing house you’ve got a real gem on your hands um other times he can say you need to think about this you need you need to think about this he doesn’t say yes about no he doesn’t he will never say The YES or NO That Will Surprise You yes or no he will present his facts and then you know he says this is up to you but these are my findings you need to really carefully consider and go through this and decide what’s worth it to you in terms of later repairs yeah absolutely and so it’s important and it’s our job as as your representative to make sure you’re getting something that’s really in good working condition yeah I hate to get phone calls later this broke that broke and d and something wasn’t caught I had one house where the inspector actually said oh I don’t get on the roof I will never do that yes yes I won’t get on the roof and I’m like well okay and uh so what happened there was over a 100 crack tiles this is very important you know you need to have a full service inspect who doesn’t pick and choose oh I don’t want to go up in that attic I don’t want to go in the crawl space I don’t do the Not A Good Inspector roof that’s not a good inspector that’s not a good inspector you need somebody who gets in there and does every possible a lot of times the problems are found in the crannies you got to be willing to get in there yes so hats off to Matt yeah uh we’re so glad he’s part of our team yes he will also we use Matt 2 on on the cell side as well oh yeah important yeah there are sellers you know they’ll use an inspector as one of these gloss over types you they want to Gloss Over Types make the transaction go forward and they’ll hire them to do a pre-inspection when you’re the seller and you’re doing a pre-inspection you want to know everything the whole point is to get away from you know so you don’t have a surprise when you go you don’t want to have a surprise after you’re under contract so yeah we also do for our sellers we also recommend a pre- inspection especially if the home is older we never want to be under contract and about to end you know the inspection period and you find out there’s a crack SLB or the reef has a major leak or there’s mold we want to discover that stuff before you go on the market so you can address it and fix it because I can guarantee you if you have a good inspector they’re going to find it and it could queer the whole deal yeah people get scared they’re like well they these people didn’t take care of their house I don’t want to take this on yes so if so as as a buyer you need to use a real inspector a tough inspector as a seller you need to use a tough inspector that’s right that’s the bottom line inspection should be real it shouldn’t be ins should just a a you know rubber stamp something that’s right we’re looking for that’s not what we’re looking for you’re right so sometimes we’re disappointed sometimes our buyers are disappointed sometimes it can be a Heart Breaker heartbreaker but in the long run we will

When serious buyers tour a dozen houses in one day, it's easy for them to forget which one is which. In this episode we share a secret about how they cope with this and how to use it to make your house stand out from the crowd.
Diane and Randall bro here your local Prescott area real estate agent wife combo uh so far so good we’re marginally French correct he’s Cajun French 100 I am not but that’s okay um so we’re here to talk to you about something that’s kind of fun we love it we do it all the time you can’t help but not do it when you see so many houses when you take buyers out it’s hard to remember each and every house so you start to nickname the houses yeah so you could say the Moosehead house yeah the house has a Moosehead a Moosehead house yeah or crazy paint color the greenhouse The Pink House the uh the many cats house yeah sometimes there’s a lot of cats in there there’s a lot of cats cat memorabilia that’s right and you have to do this because I you know particularly if somebody is as we say in the shoot like they they have to find a house and they want to find the house as soon as possible we’ll show our 12 homes we might show Ted homes in one day your eyes will be crossing my eyes start to Nicknaming Your Home cross and you really have difficulty remembering wait what house was that so if we nickname it it comes back yeah so something fun that we like to tell our listeners is think of something positive about your home that we can nickname your home so we should say oh my gosh I had the greatest Jewel ever yeah it’s just like a little Jewel a little a little jewelry box it’s a jewel you know and then you know try Positivity to do something like a jewelry box or something put something out uh positive mind you we don’t want to have the stinky house yes the kitty cat smell house yeah yeah we’re looking for a positive positive it was pretty bad so think of something cute you know or put a decorative item out that that other buyers coming in will instantly identify and
