Don’t Forget Curb Appeal in Autumn
categories: Education, Guest Bloggers

Fall is here.

Time to take care of the outside of the house and make sure it has some curb appeal. A large percentage of home buyers decide whether or not to look inside a home based on its curb appeal: It is THAT important.

1) Rake leaves and put fresh pine needles or mulch down on ground coverings.
2) Trim all bushes, especially anything that is overgrown onto the sidewalk or the driveway. I had a client who had overgrown bushes, and it was covering up a spectacular view of the lake!
3) Power-wash the sidewalk and driveway if necessary. Don’t forget the siding of the house.
4) Professionally clean windows and gutters (don’t want anyone falling on me)
5) Mow the lawn and kill the weeds
6) Add pretty colorful flowers, Mums are spectacular right now and add color and warmth to the season.

Happy Fall!

Passage of H.R. 5114, the Flood Insurance Reform Priorities Act, would strengthen the NFIP and bring certainty to many real estate markets that are much in need, NAR said, and commended Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) for marshalling the bill through House passage.

“This longer-term reauthorization of the NFIP is critical to millions of taxpaying American families who rely on the program for flood insurance, which is required to obtain a mortgage in nearly 20,000 communities across the nation. ( Full Story )
