Making The Move

Making The Move

The average homeowner stays in their home for 10 years. Here are some telltale signs it’s time to pack your bags and make the move.

  1. It’s a sellers market… And you want in.

  2. Your neighbors are selling and making the big bucks.

  3. You were sick of feeling financially stressed.

  4. You’ve grown – but your home hasn’t. You’re over the maintenance.

Planning To Sell? Think Like A Buyer

Planning To Sell?  Think Like A Buyer.

Selling a home these days is very competitive if you want a top price for it and want to sell in the shortest possible time with list hassles.

If you're considering selling your home, there is a benefit of thinking of your house from someone else's perspective. Doing so may allow it to sell faster and potentially for more money. The information below outlines three questions to ask yourself to help you review your home objectively and differentiate it from other homes in the market.

 

  1. What's the first impression of your home?
  2. What are  the home's best features?
  3. Which features should be minimized or improved?

If you are considering kitchen renovation, READ THIS!

The Connected Kitchen

If you are considering a kitchen renovation, consider adding high-tech features to make the space timeless.

Cut the cords. There are many appliances that are now wireless and compatible with smart counter tops. Plus, a wireless kitchen reduces the number of cords, which is extremely important near kitchen sinks. 

Find a digital hub to manage your kitchen. Download apps that an help you take greater control over your kitchen by using voice commands or allowing you to directly turn on your oven remotely or access videos with step-by-step directions.

Make sure your new appliances are Wi-Fi enabled 

Appliances that can connect to the internet are the future, and some companies believe other appliances will eventually be outdated. Connectivity, for example, allows ovens to control the baking for you.

Consider a wireless charging counter tops. Wireless charging counter tops may become the "new quartz" When choosing a counter top, it may be a smart idea to skip the stone and opt for smart counter tops that charge your devices.
