Update Your Home With The Latest Tech

Technology is constantly changing and improving, sometimes seemingly overnight. It’s not only businesses and various industry leaders taking advantage of technology, homeowners are incorporating it into their lives. Whether you are upgrading old devices and systems or just getting started, here’s some tech you may want in your home. 
Outdoor Safety


Even if your front door has a peephole, you may want to install an outdoor security system. Unlike older systems, today’s technology is a breeze to install. Most are simple DIY projects that only take a few minutes. 
Cameras on doorbells allow you to see who’s at your door. Some home security systems also connect to an app. You can still keep an eye on the front door while you’re away from home. 
Solar lights along walkways illuminate the area. Since the lights are solar-powered, you don’t need an electrician to connect the devices to the home’s power source.

Selling Your Home During the Holiday Season

Tips for Selling Your Home During the Holiday Season

It is common knowledge in the real estate world that the spring months are the best time to market and sell your home. Demand is usually at its highest, buyers understand that the buying and moving in processes often take a few months to complete, and families will want to settle in before the new school year begins. The holiday season might not seem like the ideal time to sell, however there are benefits to selling your home at this time of the year.

Inventory, the number of homes available to buyers, is usually low. Buyers will face more competition for a home, which may command a higher selling price.

If a buyer is “in the market”, you can bet they are serious about purchasing a new home. There will be more serious buyers and less “we’re just looking” people.

Should You Stage A Nursery or A Home Office- Which One Attracts Potential Buyers

Stage A Nursery Or Home Office – Which One Attracts Potential Buyers
Your home is going on the market, and it means getting everything ready for at least one open house. Clutter is put away, and family photos are carefully stored away. Even the kitchen junk drawer is organized for the first time in years. Couch pillows are fluffed, and the home has plenty of curb appeal. All that’s left is to decide what to do with the nursery. 
Not every potential buyer needs or wants a nursery. They may see it as a waste of space, finding it difficult to envision the room as anything else. Your nursery can appeal to a smaller group of buyers, primarily those planning on starting families. However, the work industry is changing with more employees working from home. 
Staging an office instead of a nursery can help your home appeal to a larger selection of buyers, and it doesn’t take a lot of time or money. 

Get Rid of the Clutter
