Arizona Home Flipper Tips

You might have seen it on television: a run-down house turned into a welcoming home ready to be bought and lived in. Reality television makes house flipping look like a piece of cake, but if you’re just getting started, you need to make sure you read up on the nitty-gritty details. Everyone has to start somewhere, so we’ve come up with a list basic of the things you need to know before you consider house-flipping.


All Pro Shade Concepts installs custom window sun screens, awnings, and patio shades; and are the leading shade providers in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, the East Valley (Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Tempe, Queen Creek) and West Valley (Phoenix, Glendale, Sun City, Laveen, Peoria, Avondale, Goodyear).

Gauge the Market


First things first - what does your target market need? Location is usually the biggest factor. If your potential buyer has a new family, for example, you would want to flip a house in a good neighborhood near schools and parks.

 

Work with the Best People


The key to a successful home-flip is a good crew. Share your vision with the most reliable suppliers and construction crew you can find. Always make sure to check the previous projects they worked on so you’d have an idea about the quality of their work. It also helps to maintain a good working relationship with them after a project, so you’d have a go-to crew.

Carefully Plan the Renovation


Once you’ve chosen a house to flip, think about the scope of your project. Being realistic with your timeframe and budget will save you from a lot of trouble. Think about what the property really needs to be marketable.

 

Attract more valuable buyers with patio shades that turn their backyard into an oasis that shades them from the sun & heat, while letting the nice breeze in. Many available options like sun & wind sensor, motorized/manual.

Retractable Awnings will increase the amount of outdoor entertainment space for your prospective home buyers. This is especially attractive to buyers looking to spend lots of time lounging by a pool or having guests over for outdoor parties.

Every Arizona home need sun screens, not only to cool down homes from the blazing summers, but to provide privacy and style. Don't lose buyers due to faded or damaged screens, adding fresh screens is an easy way to attract buyers that want a turn-key home.

When in doubt, always refer to your location. If you’re house-flipping in Arizona, it’s important to have good shade solutions. Work with a reliable shade installer that understands marketability factors. Apart from providing privacy, window screens can instantly improve a home’s curb appeal. Patio shades and awnings can keep a home cool during the summer, making it energy efficient.

Keep it simple


Potential buyers would most likely want to add their personal touch to the property, so going all-out with style isn’t advisable. You can never go wrong with the necessities - good plumbing, shade solutions, a fresh coat of paint, and even a little landscaping. But never go overboard.

Play Fun & Unique Games


Don’t settle for the usual board games. Make the holiday count by preparing something entertaining. Set up a backyard scavenger hunt for kids in the family.

5 Things to Consider When Choosing Between Motorized Shades

Making the decision to invest in motorized shades is not that easy.  Considering the number of windows you need treatments for, the type of motors you want and the cost of the window treatment to stay within your desired budget.
Factors to consider:

  1.     The Durability of the Motor – You need to decide which solution works best for you.  Look for a product that is guaranteed durable and comes with a complete warranty as some products or brands comes with a limited warranty and doesn’t cover all of the parts.  Others, provide a complete warranty, but for a limited time period. All Pro Shade Concepts recommends and uses Somfy motors which are some of the best in the industry.
  1.     Motor’s Compatibility – Know what type of shades it’s compatible with for most window treatment options can be motorized, but not all of them work with all the solutions.
  1.      The App or Remote options that will integrate with the motor – Make sure that your Smart phone supports the app associated with the motor that you selected or see to it that the remote you selected to control your shades comes with a comprehensive warranty.  With this, you can get the most out of your shades and control them remotely.
  1.      How is this Motor Powered? – Motorized window shades are solar powered, battery powered and plug-in or wired.  Each option has its own benefits, preference and size of the window coverings are the main factors that would dictate you to choose one over the other options.  Battery powered motors – is the least expensive of the three motorized options, you don’t need to worry about wiring and electrical costs.
  1.      What Kind of Customer Support You can get if you’re having trouble – Obviously, quality customer service is very important as you may need to interact with customer service with regards to your motorized shades to ensure that the proper support is there to meet your needs.
