Fellas, this one’s for you!

Inside the Modern Man Cave

Modern man caves are more sophisticated than the man caves of yesterday. Consider these four points when designing a sanctuary for the man of the house.

A space with a purpose – Plan the space around the interests and hobbies of the primary person using it. Any room from the garage to basement to outdoor patio can be transformed into a man cave with the proper design and furnishings. Don’t be afraid to get creative.

Style and comfort – Man caves are no longer a storage unit for the broken furniture from your college dorm. Unify the space around a color pallet, style or theme for an inviting atmosphere. If the space is going to be used for entertaining, invest in plenty of comfortable seating.

Outfit with tech – Smart technology is becoming more popular in these spaces, so you can easily automate your lights, air flow and sound system. Don’t forget details such as streaming services or cable packages that you’ll need to host all of the big games. A refrigerator and microwave also help avoid the need to continually run to the main kitchen for refreshments.

Inviting for everyone – They’re still referred to as “man caves,” but posting a “no girls allowed” sign on the door is definitely faux pas. A modern man cave commonly doubles as a quiet retreat to relax solo, as well as a gathering spot for a group of friends.

Pricing your home can be overwhelming.. I am here to help!!

9a5d95a1-c1ef-4ab6-885f-e8be77547c25Pricing your Home in Today’s Market

Deciding to sell your home is a big decision. The next big decision in the selling process is pricing your home. There is an art and a science to this critical step, so your best bet is to utilize the expertise of a real estate professional.

Setting the right asking price for your home without professional help is much like defending yourself in court without a lawyer – you can do it, but it comes at a risk. Avoid pricing yourself out of your local market, or under-valuing your home, by working with a knowledgeable real estate professional.

Realtors® have exclusive access to information and a vast knowledge to pull from to help you appropriately price your home. They can provide insight on pricing trends in your area for similar homes, so yours is competitive.

Real estate professionals will be able to take into account home improvements and amenities in your home. They will also consider square footage, the age of the home and the benefits of your neighborhood, such as a great school district, walking trails, nearby shopping, public transportation, and green spaces.

The job of a Realtor® is to stay up-to-date on pricing trends in your local housing market. Valuable insights into where the market is headed will help you sell your home in the shortest amount of time.

I can help stage your home to give you the opportunity to get the most money possible for your home!! I am here for YOU!

De-clutter your house, de-clutter your mind!

Desperate helpless woman in messy room home.

De-Clutter Before You Move

Moving to a new home can seem daunting when you look over the piles of clutter you’ve accumulated. Don’t let the quantity of what you have to pack overwhelm you. Instead, prepare for your next adventure by getting rid of the old to make space for the new.

Start piles.
You have three options when it comes to cleaning: keep, throw away and donate. If you can’t move without it, keep it. If it’s broken or unusable, throw it away or recycle it. If you no longer have a need for the item but it’s in usable condition, donate it. Simplifying your options makes the process quicker.

Don’t procrastinate!
Start early. If you know you are moving several months in advance, don’t wait to start organizing and packing. Using the pile system, you can start organizing your “stuff” so the task never feels too overwhelming.

Prioritize over time.
Categorize your lengthy to-do list into themed days and weeks, such as “donate week,” “clean-out-the-closets week,” and “box-up-the-kitchen day.” Then tackle those days and weeks one at a time. Work backwards so you’re packing and storing items you use less often first. You don’t want to pack all your bath towels weeks before your move!

Don’t weigh down your boxes.
Remember, a human is going to have to move each of these boxes, so don’t weigh them down. Pack lighter items in with heavier items, and go for more boxes with fewer items inside. If it’s a local move, don’t forget to utilize totes, suitcases and laundry baskets you already own to transport household items.
