Did you know that a mobile website can help sell your home? According to Mobile Marketing Association Asia  5.1 billion people own a cell phone. The world population is 7 billion people.  More and more consumers are shopping via their mobile phones.  A recent statistic says 91% of all smart phone users have their phone within arm’s reach 24/7 – (Morgan Stanley, 2012).

Mobile marketing will account for 15.2% of global online ad spend by 2016. (Berg Insight, 2012). Having a mobile web site allows for your property to come up higher in a mobile search and be viewed more easily on a mobile device such as an iPad, iPhone or Android device. Go ahead and type in the website address of this site on your mobile device to see what it looks like.

Mobile consumers are more ready to act too. 70% of all mobile searches result in action within 1 hour. 70% of online searches result in action in one month. (Mobile Marketer, 2012). Search Engine Land found that 9 out of 10 mobile searches lead to action, over half leading to purchase. (Search Engine Land, 2012).

If your home isn’t being advertised on a mobile device you are missing out. Mobile marketing produces more immediate responses, and a higher response rate, than any other marketing method. So, are you ready to list today and get effective marketing for your home?

Is your kitchen a headache for you?  Thinking on a style upgrade?  Many people want to make their kitchens more comfortable to be in, but don’t have the first clue where to start.  Here’s a few ideas.

Hide your garbage can – One of the first projects that you can undertake is moving your kitchen garbage can to an out-of-sight place, like under your sink.  This is a simple project that you can undertake yourself, and will help simplify your kitchen’s look, on top of increasing your floor space.  You can also take this as an opportunity to consider whether or not you’d like to try your hand at going green.  Consider making a separate hidden bin under your sink for recycling.

Under-cabinet lighting – Under-cabinet lighting is an easy way to add some ambiance to your kitchen.  You can install strip-lighting under your cabinets yourself, or hire a contractor to install a few.  This will serve to highlight certain aspects of your kitchen, which can’t really be done by relying solely on overhead lighting.

Tile backsplash – Installing tile in the area between your cabinets and cupboards will make cleanup nice and easy, while adding a bit more style to your kitchen.

Solid surface countertops – This is one of the big remodels, but it is also one of the most beneficial.  If you live in a home with laminate countertops, then it may be time to consider upgrading to something a little more style-conscious and useful, like granite or marble.

Who wouldn’t like to pay off the mortgage early? Getting rid of mortgage debt will allow you the security and the psychological benefit of owning your home free and clear. There are lots of ways to accomplish these goals. Here are some suggestions on ways to get rid of your mortgage debt. Compare the options and do what works best for you.

1. Add more money to your monthly payment. This will help pay down the principal balance shortening the length of your loan. When you pay more on your principal is gets lower, and the lower your principal gets, the more every payment from then on is applied to principal, as less goes to cover interest expense.

2. Refinance. Refinance your mortgage to 10, 15 or 20 years. Your payments will be higher on a 15-year loan, but often the rate is lower and the loan is paid off much quicker. If you are afraid to take out a 15- year loan take out a 30-year loan, but make payments as if you had a 15-year loan.

3. Make biweekly payments. Most banks have a biweekly payment plan. Since there are 52 weeks in the year if you pay half your regular mortgage payment every other week, you’ll have made 26 half-payments, or 13 payments.

There are options when it comes to owning your home free and clear. Just decide which one works for you and be on your way to being mortgage free.
