    Curb Appeal Projects to Get Ready for the Holidays

    Yard decorations are a great tradition, but before you start pulling boxes out of the attic and untangling lights, make sure your home’s exterior looks great to host your holiday vision. Here are some curb appeal projects to consider.

    Paint your front door.

    Giving your door a fresh coat of paint or switching to a new color entirely is a quick, easy way to boost your curb appeal and add a splash of color to your home’s exterior.

    Add some colorful flowers.

    Most people associate flowers with spring, but there are plenty of beautiful fall and winter flowers that can brighten your front yard.

    Maintain your yard

    Make sure your grass is short, leaves are raked, and any paths are edged with a nice, crisp border.

    Place some extra lights.

    Some decorative lights will add a touch of beauty and enhance the safety of your yard as you and your guests are able to navigate more easily! Consider lining the walkway with solar lights or installing some extra lighting on the outside of your home.

     

    3 Tips to Sell Your Home During the Holidays

    Many buyers want to celebrate the holidays in their new home. Make sure yours makes their must-see list with these 3 tips!

    Use minimal holiday decorations.

    Your holiday decorations are likely completely different from your potential buyer’s decorations, and since you want them to picture themselves in your home, it pays to keep your holiday decorations to a minimum. A wreath on the door and a few seasonal garlands can give your home a festive feel without overwhelming buyers.

    Find the right price.

    Buyers looking for homes during the holidays don’t have a lot of spare time to haggle over home prices. They’re often going to look for homes that already fit their needs and reflect the current condition of the home. The right price will be low enough to attract buyers and high enough to show that you know what your home is worth.

    Get fresh listing photos.

    Make sure your listing photos reflect the season. If your home is up for the holidays, consider including some special photos highlighting the fireplace, reading nook, or other cozy features.

    OWNING A HOME 6 TIPS FOR CREATING THE PERFECT STUDY SPACE FOR YOUR KIDS

    04/02/2020

    Increase productivity while your kids navigate remote learning.
    With schools closed for the time being, parents are swiftly searching for a way to mimic a classroom setting in the comfort of their own home. Here are a few suggestions for putting together an A+ study space.

    1. Brighter room, brighter mind
    Lighting is one of the most critical features of a productive study space. Add a desk or floor lamp if the room’s main light source isn’t bright enough.

    2. A door that closes
    Shut out loud noises – such as the sound of dinner being made or younger siblings watching TV – with a solid door that minimizes outside sound. If a closed off room is not possible, then foam earplugs, a white noise machine or soft background music can help fight encroaching buzz.

    3. Banish distractions
    Make the room a phone-free zone so games and social media aren’t within reach. If there’s a TV, take the remote during study time to reduce temptation.

    4. Consider color
    The color of the room can affect kids’ ability to concentrate. Elementary school age kids do best when surrounded by warmer colors, like yellow and peach, while older students focus best with cooler hues, like blues and greens, according to psychological color studies. If you’re looking to redecorate a space just for kids, consider these pallets before painting.

    5. Clear clutter
    Piles of toys, clothes or paper can distract kids from homework. Help them focus by keeping the space, especially the desk surface, clutter-free.
    6. Talk to an expert – your kid

    Perhaps the most important factor in creating a great study space is finding out your child’s unique preferences. You might love the expensive ergonomically correct chair, but your kid might find it easier to read for long periods of time from a beanbag chair on the floor.

    Time to Winterize!

    Even though we’ve had a reprieve from colder temperatures, winter is still on the way, and you still have time to winterize your home.

    Here are 5 easy ways to winterize and protect your investment:

    1. Seal up leaks in doors and windows with weather-stripping and/or caulk.
    2. Don’t heat an empty house! Invest in a programmable thermostat.
    3. Have your insulation checked to see if any needs to be added.
    4. Schedule a furnace  and water heater tune-up. Remember to change furnace filters and consider insulating your water heater and exposed hot water pipes.
    5. Clean gutters and turn off the water to outside spigots. Drain the lines and check for pipes in unheated spaces to prevent frozen or broken pipes.
