Why taking a ‘House-Selfie’ is the smartest thing you can do this year

Have you had your annual check up? These annual home maintenance to-dos can save you major headaches in the long run.

TAKE A HOME SELFIE!

Taking a photo of your home once a year is great for a few reasons.

  1. Compare how your home has evolved over the years, this helps to show future buyers the growth and maintenance.
  2. If you ever have a flood or outside damage, you have an updated photo of your home pre-incident.

TERMITE CHECK!

Checking for termites and catching these little critters early can be vital in saving you hassle and money later. Drywood termites live within the wood they consume and oftentimes infest walls and furniture. They are quiet and unless you are searching will be almost impossible to detect until it is too late. Hire an inspector to pop by once a year to do an overall inspection.

HUMIDITY CHECK!

If you have ever had mold at home, you know how important this maintenance tip is. Audit your humidity every year to ensure there is no ideal condition for mold growth.

Maintaining your home will keep costs down over time, and ensure you live in the best quality condition. If you need any local referrals for home maintenance, please contact us.

The great news is that you don’t have to spend a fortune to create these fall trends. Faux finishes like stick on tiles, removable wallpaper or faux floral tiles have made it less expensive to fix up your home.

Furniture featuring hand-cut, inlaid patterns is the statement piece your home needs this fall. That means, thrift shops or even refurbishing current furniture will give it that look.

Upgrade your bedroom with classic, exciting bedding. Mix different patterns together including monograms and quilts. 2017 is a boundary pushing year for interior design. It is forecasted to have mixed patterns and jaw-dropping color combinations. This is the year to play around, have fun and make your home … home!

Make an instant fantastic first impression on home buyers with these tips

One of the most important things to do before selling your home is ensure the first impression counts! Homes are selling fast and at top dollar, it is still important to prove that your home is worth every cent. These simple steps will help ensure that the first impression is the best to drive potential buyers.

Curb Appeal

Your home’s exterior, this includes the yard, driveway, sidewalk and front entry – should serve as a snapshot of what is to come inside. Curb appeal sets the tone to a potential buyer and can make or break an offer.

  • Mow the grass, trim trees and plant.
  • Clean up the front door area and add some plants, lighting and check for spider webs.
  • Plant new shrubs and remove weeds.

Professionally clean

Investing in a professional cleaning company to deep clean carpets or wood flooring can make all the difference in a first impression. Carpets, over the years tend to stain, wear and tear, so it is important to spend that little extra money to make it as pristine and new looking as possible.

Caulk Tubs and sinks

Caulking around your home is an inexpensive way to add detail to your home. It’s easy and can be done fast. This will also stop leaking and give that extra design touch to ensure a positive impression that your home has been taken care of.
