Add Curb Appeal with a Mailbox Makeover

May 4, 2016 12:15 pm

A simple mailbox makeover can add an instant curb appeal boost to your home! If you are planning to sell your home, your mailbox will be part of potential buyers’ first impression because it is one of the first things they see when approaching your home. Here are some easy ideas to makeover your mailbox:

Plant colorful flowers – If space allows, plant a small flower garden around the base of your mailbox. Use this to add a burst of color and make your front yard look more welcoming and approachable! For more information, click here.

Add fresh paint – If your mailbox is looking a little worn, one of the simplest ways to spruce it up is with a can of spray paint. Use colors to compliment your home accents and replace or paint the wooden post. Black is always a great option for a classic look. Additionally, you can purchase metal numbers to attach to the post to help people find your home and add a great finishing touch.

Awesome Ways to Declutter

It always amazes me how much stuff a person can accumulate in a week…a month…a year!  How much stuff does a person really need?  There are three philosophies that I live by:

Everything should have a place.

It’s ok to let it go.

I’d rather have a dollar in my pocket than store, clean, or trip over extra stuff.

Here are some super helpful ideas to get you organized, decluttered, relieve some of the pressure of all the stuff that is piling up around you!

This is ideal for receipts because it logs the date, amount, store, tax, etc. It then tallies the sales tax so that you can use it for your taxes and your purchases can be categorized so you can track home improvement . ...

Buyer's Agent Working for Free

Why should you hire a Buyer's Agent to help you buy your next home? Here are the top 3 reasons:
1) It's free!
As the buyer, you will not be responsible for paying your agent's commission. It is the seller's responsibility. Basically you have the opportunity to have free professional representation throughout a legally binding process, use it!
2) Contract writing
Entering into a real estate contract is legally binding and not to be taken lightly. A buyer's agent is trained, experienced, and skilled in writing these contracts and navigating through the (sometimes) choppy waters of legal contracts.
3) Professional negotiating
Regardless of how much you're paying for your home, negotiating is going to play a factor into buying a home. Since most homes are listed with a listing agent you want to make sure you have a buyer's agent in your corner so your financial interests are professionally protected and represented. Remember, price point IS NOT the only way a buyer's agent can negoti3 ...
