Keeping the family together

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.

Do Your Homework

You may think that shopping for homes starts with jumping in the car and driving all over town .  And it’s true that hopping in the car to go look is probably the most exciting part of the home-buying process.  However, driving around is fun for only so long – if weeks go by without finding what you’re looking for, the fun can fade pretty fast.  That’s why we say that looking for your home begins with carefully assessing your values, wants, and needs, both for the short and long terms.  Do Your homework …..it will be a much more fun and rewarding process

            Questions to ask yourself 

  1. What do I want my home to be close to?
  2. How much space do I need and why?
  3. Which is more critical: location or size?
  4. Would I be interested in a fixer-upper?
  5. How important is home value appreciation?
  6. Is neighborhood stability and priority?
  7. Would I be interested in a condo?
  8. Would I be interested in new home construction?
  9. What features and amenities do I want? Which do I really need?

You Gotta Have Vision

I am working with a young couple and I really have fun helping first time home buyers with the whole home buying process. One of the most important things to remember in the process is you gotta have vision. When you walk into a home it may be perfectly staged and decorated and buyers will think this is the one for us. However, in some cases you can find a fixer upper which might require a little elbow grease with cleaning and a fresh coat of paint and you can make it perfect for your needs. Don’t look at how a house is decorated. Instead, look at how you would utilize the space and how you would use your furniture. See if the layout will work to meet your needs and if the space is functional for you and/or your family. Look beyond the decor and have vision to see if you can invision yourself in the home and how you can put your own touches on the home. Remember, you can make it the perfect home!

Create A Good First Impression

Remember the 60-second rule: That’s all the time you have to create a winning first impression. Here are some simple to significant ways to maximize your home’s appeal.

Exterior

* Keep the grass cut and remove all yard clutter.
* Weed and apply fresh mulch to flower beds.
* Apply fresh paint to wooden fences.
* Tighten and clean all door handles.
* Clean windows inside and out.
* Powerwash home’s exterior.
* Ensure all gutters and downspouts are firmly attached and functioning.
* Paint the front door.
* Buy a new welcome mat.
* Place potted flowers near the front door.

Interior

* Evaluate the furniture in each room and remove anything that interrupts “the flow” or makes the room appear smaller. Consider renting a storage unit to move items off-site.
* Clean and organize cabinets, closets and bookshelves.
* Clean all light fixtures and ceiling fans.
* Shampoo carpets.
* Remove excessive wall hangings and knick-knacks.
* Repair all plumbing leaks, including faucets and drain traps.

* Replace worn cabinet and door knobs.
* Fix or replace discolored grout.
* Replace broken tiles.
* Replace worn countertops.

Special details for showings

* Turn on all the lights.
* Open all drapes and shutters in the daytime.
* Keep pets secured outdoors.
* Buy new towels for bathrooms.
* Buy new bedding for bedrooms.
* Replace old lamps or lampshades.
* Play quiet background music.
* Light the fireplace or clean out the ashes and light a candelabrum.
* Infuse home with a comforting scent, such as apple spice or vanilla.
* Set the dining room table for a fancy dinner party.
* Vacate the property while it is being shown

Freshen Up For Spring

With spring quickly approaching many of us ponder ways to freshen up our homes and give a sense of new, but with the current economic state not many people can afford to remodel. My wife and I have discovered some easy and inexpensive ways to freshen up our home without going deep into our pockets and a few of these things I wanted to share with you.

Paint. To have the biggest and least expensive impact on a room freshen up with paint. Yes painting can either be a chore you love or hate, but it can be fun and something that does not require a lot of time. Have fun and don’t be afraid of color. We have a rule to try it and if you don’t like it, re-paint. It is not like you have to tear down walls because of structure. It is just paint.

Lamps. I used to tease my wife that she had a fetish for lamps because she was always buying them. On the contrary. We buy lamps that can be used in various rooms so that if you switch out lamps from one room to another it seems like you have “new” and all you really did was move lamps around. You would be surprised the difference it will make in a room. You might even want to try moving a lamp around to a different spot within the same room and you will still get the same effect.

Furniture. Like most of us we have good furniture, but sometimes you just get tired of it and want something new. Again, we you are budgeting this is one of those areas you have to ask yourself if this is a “want” or a “need”. One trick we use is to buy furniture that you can move from one room to another. One time my wife wanted a chaise lounge for the bedroom. Would have been fine, but I doubt it would have been a practical piece of furniture for us to use in another room. Instead we bought a club chair and ottoman. A club chair and ottoman can be used in a bedroom, den, sunroom, living room and even a kitchen nook if you have room. This was a practical purchase with many functions.

So, share your creative ideas and tricks on how you freshen up your home without spending tons of money with a remodeling renovation. Have fun and bring on spring!
