Curb appeal. I am lucky to live in a neighborhood where most of us work hard to have nice curb appeal and an attractive neighborhood. This time of year we all have spring fever and are planning what we need to be doing to get ready for warm weather. Here a few tips to keep in mind as you get your homes ready for spring.
* Prune trees and your shrubs
* Put down lyme and fertilizer in your yard so your yard will be the first to green up this spring
* Spread grass seed if you didn’t do it in the fall
* Be thinking about prepping your flowerbeds with pine straw or mulch
* If you are thinking about adding new plants check with a local nursery for help and guidance before you buy.
Keep in mind that people constantly drive through neighborhoods “looking” to see what is on the market so you want to make sure that your home is attractive and “The One” the people will remember.
We work with a lot of clients who move to this area for new careers. Lately, however, we have been working with a number of clients who are relocating to the area to be closer to children and grandchildren. Being close to family is so important and a value that many of us share. This area is a tremendous location to work, raise families and retire and there is so much available for everyone from kids to seniors. If you have family that has mentioned relocating to the area I want to share my website that has numerous useful links may be helpful to gather information on the area and to see what is available in the home market. I am proud of this area and glad to call it home so if I can do anything to help your family move into the area and have a smooth transition please give me a call today.

Clients always ask us two questions.
1. When is the best time to sell a house?
2. When is the best time to buy a house?
There really is no “best” time to buy or sell. The buyers market has been excellent lately, however, due to low inventory on the market in numerous price points now is also an excellent time to sell. If you have been thinking about selling and you have been on the fence now is the time to put your house on the market. There is a tremendous amount of activity in the market and there are a number of people relocating to this area therefore it is a prime time to have your home on the market. Again, homes at every price point are in demand and with the low inventory of available homes your chance of selling has been greatly enhanced , particularly if you have your home priced accurately.
If you are thinking of selling give me a call and let me help you access the market, determine an attractive sell price and let me help you get your house on the market! Now is the time.

* Is this the time to refinance? Interest rates are still at some of the lowest rates ever , but many experts expect the interest rates to begin to climb.
* Should I consider buying my first home? Investing in real estate is still one of the most sound investments folks can make
* Are there advantages to consider in possibly buying a larger home? With the interest rates still low and many options available for potential buyers now is the perfect time to explore all the many options.
