We spoke to some of the home renovation experts and real estate agents and we came up with the following report concerning the value and cost of undertaking a kitchen and bath remodeling.
If you are thinking of carrying out a home improvement project during spring the kitchen and bathroom are some of the rooms that significantly improve the value of the property. However, nowadays you may not fully recover the cost of a remodel when you eventually sell.
So, should you even consider Remodeling?
Well according to James Smith a real estate agent, this will depend on the housing market. However, normally a majority of home buyers are looking for homes with the latest kitchen and bath. Homeowners are advised to assess certain aspects about their property such as the location and general state of the house.
When you undertake a home remodel ensure you choose a timeless and long-term remodeling project. People will look at your home a decade later and think the remodeling was done a few days ago.
Ensure that when you purchase appliances you have the resale in mind. Choose colors that are appealing to everyone and avoid peculiar colors.
When it comes to kitchens most people are looking for large kitchens that open up into a family room. Therefore, for a kitchen remodel you may consider bringing down the wall the separates the kitchen from the family room. Consider an incorporating a kitchen island with a breakfast bar if you have space.
Technology is at the center of kitchen remodeling. People nowadays are looking for kitchens with the latest smart home technology. This includes programmable thermostats and smart refrigerators that will know when the milk runs out. In future maybe your fridge will automatically order for milk. The technological trends will determine the demand for property.
When it comes to bathrooms we are seeing larger spaces with accessories such as aromatherapy showers etc. People are looking superior shower experiences through big multi-spray and round rainwater showerheads. The shower spaces now have areas to sit and a lot of glass tiles.
According to real estate experts, the more the number of bathrooms the better, even though the cost to value at the time of resale may not be very high. As much as you may not fully recover the cost of the kitchen and bath remodel, you should still consider it based on other factors. You get to utilize the updates in your kitchen and bathroom and when the time to sell comes the house will move faster.
Nobody is going to pay good money for a property with outdated kitchen and baths. By investing in a kitchen and bath remodel you can sell your house for much more in the shortest time.
Meet Craig Acord the founder and president of Pyramis Company, a San Antonio property management firm. He shares some of the challenges they face in property management industry. Craig is a professional Realtor and a Certified Property Manager with over 30 years’ experience in the industry.
We asked Craig whether the challenges in the property management industry had changed and he said: “The challenges generally remain the same”. According to him, the main goal is to acquire more clients and to maintain them by ensuring their satisfaction. The company keeps their clients happy while maintaining optimum costs.
Mr Craig has continuously been monitoring and improving the service quality of Pyramis Company. Ensuring that monthly rental costs are not significantly hiked will keep tenants from leaving. Managing and saving energy is vital in lowering operating costs. “Energy costs make up over 30% of the operating costs,” Craig laments.
There is huge competition in the property management industry. “While competition is healthy for every industry, to succeed the key is to provide quality and efficient services at reasonable costs.” Simply operating smoothly is not enough, the services must be monitored continuously to ensure everyone gets value for their money.
Mr. Craig insists that even where the low property price is the main concern the quality must never be compromised. Nonetheless, for property where high standard and class is the chief concern costs are not only kept at optimum levels but the quality is also maintained.
He calmly points out that the current price reduction pressure has always existed. But because of the current crisis it has been heightened. The goal is to cut operating costs through a concerted effort to fit into the desired prices. Tenants in medium standard buildings are more inclined to sacrifice quality to bring down costs while the others in high-quality offices will demand top quality services.
The experience Mr. Craig has gathered over the years has made Pyramis Company the most efficient Property Management Company in San Antonio. We hope to see him make the company achieve even greater success in future.

San Antonio, Texas – Police in San Antonio have arrested a 27-year-old woman identified as Ana Sofia in connection with the theft in a home she provided house cleaning services. The maid is suspected to have stolen both cash and jewelry worth thousands of dollars from a client living in Valley Hi-North.
The victim reported the items missing from her home to the San Antonio Police Department after she had hired house cleaning services. The police executed a search warrant and recovered the items from the woman’s residence confirming the theft.
“She has always done a great job and has never stolen anything from my home before”, the victim remarked in disbelief. Cases of property theft connected to house cleaning services have been on the rise. Other victims who did want to be identified also lamented over losing items in the same area.
The items recovered from the suspect’s residence by detectives were mostly jewelry. The police, however, recovered only 3 out of the six jewelry pieces reported missing by the victim. Detectives suspect Ana Sofia’s boyfriend who could not be found at the time must have already sold them at a pawn shop.
The residents of Valley Hi-North no longer trust house cleaning services because this was not the first incident of theft by maids in the neighborhood. The residents who have hired cleaning services from Ana Sofia in the past have been urged to check with San Antonio Police department if any of the items belong to them.
The suspect has admitted to stealing the jewelry and will be facing charges after investigations have been completed.
It is a good idea to always do a background check on your maid, or hire a respected house cleaning company that is bonded and insured and has a good reputation.
