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.

Clients always ask us two questions.
1. When is the best time to sell a house?

Times have changed when it comes to finding your new home. Not to long ago when folks were in the market for a new home they would contact a realtor and drive around for hours looking at homes. Today time is a precious commodity and people don’t have the time to ride for weeks at a time looking at homes, checking out neighborhoods, clocking mileage to work and schools and so forth. Today people shop for homes using the internet to help identify what they are looking for in homes and checking out homes with all the visual tours that are available on the various sites. So many buyers want to get out there and quickly find that perfect home and the internet is a great place to start. With so many good sites available to buyers a buyer can enter their “wish list” of home features and the computer will find homes that meet most if not all of their wants and needs. This allows the buyers to shop in the privacy of their own home and then narrow down the number of homes they really want to see. To help you with your next home search or just to see what is available currently in the marketplace be sure to check out The Guilliams Team and we look forward to hearing your feedback on our site’s usefullness.
