Did you know that smell is the strongest human sense?

This is one reason why it is so important that you do NOT use candles, essential oils, or plug-ins when you are showing your home, especially if it is to mask an odor. People can be highly sensitive or allergic to certain scents, and our sense of smell is also the strongest and quickest memory inducer, which can very easily trigger a bad memory. It's also important that you don't cook heavily scented foods before a showing or open house. No one wants to walk into your home smelling of freshly cooked salmon. 

The best scent for your home?

CLEAN! And I’m not talking about the “clean linen” plug-in or candle. Clean before your showings, empty the litter box, take out the trash, open the windows on a nice day, or even bake some cookies (yes that trick works). People want to see that your home has been well-maintained and cared for, and making a great first impression with a clean house is crucial in order to sell quickly.

By tackling these three repairs, you can increase your home's value and ensure a smooth sale.

1. Water / Plumbing Issues.

Water issues are often expensive to repair, and if left untreated, mold can grow and spread to other areas of a home and may cause health troubles. Make sure that you are repairing any water or plumbing issues, and remediating any mold BEFORE listing your home for sale. This includes things as small as a leaking faucet, to as large as a leaking roof.

2. Structural Issues.

Structural and foundation issues can be caused by a multitude of things — termites, water, age, etc. and can cause concern for potential home buyers. These issues can threaten the structural integrity of your entire home, so make sure you have any structural concerns addressed by a structural engineer (and repaired if necessary) before listing your home for sale. 

3. Electrical Issues.

Electrical issues are no laughing matter — they’re responsible for over 50,000 fires every year. These repairs can be as small as fixing faulty light switches, to replacing old wiring (note: knob and tube wiring should ALWAYS be replaced). 

If you’re looking to maximize your profits, work with an agent who can help you prepare your home for the market. Message me if you’re considering selling your property — I’d love to connect and help you net the most money possible!

Fear is a powerful emotion. It can hinder us and hold us back from achieving the goals we set in life. Do you ever catch yourself saying "but what if I fail?" or "what if I'm not good enough?"... we have all been there. We avoid at all costs those things that make us uncomfortable. It’s a natural human reaction to have those thoughts occur when you set big goals for yourself, goals that will make you grow as an individual and stretch your current way of thinking.

To make positive change, you have to be willing to be vulnerable. You need to muster the courage to acknowledge and tackle your fears. Imagine the possibilities and opportunities if you just got out of your own way. MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY ✨ Fear is a powerful emotion.

So let's settle the debate — do you LOVE or HATE pumpkin spice? You aren't alone if you have intense feelings about pumpkin spice... good or bad. So let's settle the debate — do you LOVE or HATE pumpkin spice? Have you been thinking about buying a home but don’t know where to begin? A buyer consultation may seem like a forgettable part of the buying process, but it’s a critical first step to success in finding the right home and working with the right agent. 

Whether you are buying your first home or your fifth, there are a few key topics I like to review in every buyer consultation to ensure a smooth and enjoyable home buying experience.

✔️ Educate and review local market conditions, including how to be successful in today’s market when shopping for a home and making offers (the market is constantly changing!)

✔️ Review the home buying process and answer any questions. From the initial search to closing, I will take the time to review each step in the process and answer any questions.

✔️ Discuss specific financing options, preferred lenders, and steps to getting pre-approved. 

✔️ Review your search criteria. 
I will work with you to review your "wants" and "needs", as well as preferred location / neighborhoods, and more. No need to be a neighborhood expert, that's what I am here for!

✔️ Go over the best practices for working together, and get to know each other better! You’re preparing to purchase one of the largest assets of your life, and you should feel comfortable and confident that your agent (me) will get the job done for you!

Whether you are just starting to think about buying, or are ready to actively search for a home, shoot me a message — I'd love to walk you through the process to ensure your home buying experience is a great one.

Believe it or not, in 4 of the last 6 recessions, home prices actually appreciated. So, historically, there’s proof that when the economy slows down, it doesn’t mean home values will fall or depreciate as they did in 2008.

Talent is not the only ingredient to success. You need to consistently put in the hard work to be successful. Although you can have the predisposition for becoming good at what you do, your talent will be wasted if you don't put in the effort. And with every small step you take to work towards your goals, you will become better at what you do — talent or not. ⁣

Hard work is the practice and preparation you use to hone and enhance your natural skills and abilities, whether you have a particular talent or not, it all comes down to the WILL, not just the SKILL. Hard work is the sustaining factor that can, and will, push you to the top. 

The key? You have to be obsessed with your own potential, and bettering yourself (or your talent), daily. If you focus on working hard, you can succeed at whatever you put your mind to. Set a goal and grind every single day... working hard doesn't have to mean burnout. Put together a plan and the steps to get you where you want to go, and stay committed. Dreams don’t work unless you do.

Fall is in full swing, but before breaking out your Halloween decorations, it's important to button down your house (inside and out) in preparation for winter. 

This is your friendly reminder to have your heater serviced before the winter months! You don’t want your system stalling out in the middle of winter — or worse, during the holidays.⁣ It's always a good idea to get on a service plan for semi-annual checkups to keep your HVAC running smoothly, improve your energy efficiency, and extend its useful life.

Need a little inspiration and direction? Here are a few of the hottest interior design styles in 2022.

• Mid Century Modern/Urban Modern: 
This style focuses on sleek modern furniture and a neutral color pallet, with pops of color. Urban modern uses a unique blend of mid-century modern, minimalist, and modern decor (think light, soft, practical, trendy).

• Minimalist: 
The furniture does all the talking with this style and steals the show. Don't worry about filling space with art/decor or knick-knacks ... think sleek, crisp, bright & airy.

• Bohemian: 
This style utilizes different textures and is all about creating intimate and cozy spaces. Try incorporating different textures like wicker baskets and macrame decor, but keep it neutral.

• Coastal: 
This style is all about natural light. Bright, airy, and neutral colors, with pops of yellow, greens, and blues. Casual but sophisticated, with a bit of a minimalist approach.

• Transitional: 
The best of both worlds, this style incorporates unique traditional elements and contrasts them with modern comforts and chic design. This style of home may use traditional light fixtures and shapes, but incorporate contemporary colors and furniture (think rounded accent chairs).

No, we are not in a housing bubble ... and no, we are not in a "housing recession!" Real estate is always hyper-local so don't allow the media to prevent you from taking advantage of opportunities. The craze of post-lockdown home-buying has begun to cool, and sellers are getting a reality check from buyer feedback on unrealistic pricing expectations with the increase in rates. 

When deciding to get into the housing market, either as a buyer or a seller, it's important for you to understand the real dynamics backed by data — your agent should be your "knowledge broker" and provide you with the information you need to make an informed purchase or price your home accurately. 

If you have questions about our current market, reach out, I would be happy to help!

Here are some easy things you can do to make your home more appealing this fall without spending a lot of money. 

• Focus on curb appeal!
This is your first impression. Invest in power washing and a fresh coat of paint on the door/shutters. Clean up landscaping by trimming trees and bushes, planting some fresh annuals, and laying new mulch. Consider some colorful, inviting decorations for your front porch, and get a new door mat.

• Let there be light!
Take advantage of natural light as much as you can. Clean all of your windows, and invest in good LED lightbulbs (make sure there are no burned-out bulbs anywhere in your home). Remember to open the curtains and turn on all the lights before showings. Shorter days and less sun in the evening can make a home feel drab and gloomy.

• Service your HVAC!
You want the air inside your home to smell fresh. When was the last time you changed your furnace filter? The last thing you want is your HVAC to stop working during a day full of showings.

• Add a fresh coat of paint where needed!
Painting is an easy and inexpensive way to make just about any home look new. Choose a light neutral color and use the same color throughout the house. Give buyers a blank slate. 

• Market with summer images!
Professional photos are so important when marketing home, especially since most people are looking through listings on their phones. Have a great outdoor space? Get your exterior photos done NOW before the leaves change, or plants and flowers die. 

Thinking about selling this fall? I'd love to help you get the most bang for your buck.
