Just because you are moving out, does not allow you let your house go. It is probably the most important now to keep up with your chores and house’s appearance since you are going to want it to look welcoming and ready to buy!

  • The lawn: The first thing buyers are going to see is the front of your house. Letting the lawn go uncut is not the first impression you want to make for your house; your lawn sets the exceptions of your house to the buyer before they even step foot inside.

Choosing a home is not easy, but choosing a Real Estate Professional can be if you do your research and ask the right questions.  

"Have we ever thought how we base our decisions today?…. Honestly, do we mostly act on impulse or do we just base our decisions on convenience."

I’m sure some, maybe most people do their research, and lets face it, these days researching anything is not as out of reach as it was 20 years ago. We can literally go in our pocket and look up anything, vacation packages, cars, furniture and of course where you want to live and who you would like to get you there.

“Your bathroom is the size of my apartment!” Did you ever think that was a bit of an exaggeration until you lived in your very own apartment and realized the statement can stand true? Here are ways to make the most of your space:

  • Furniture with storage. Not only does it serve its initial purpose, but will also helps declutter. Consider getting a storage ottoman, television stand with shelves, a coffee table with an opening top, and a bed with draws under it. All this storage will be helpful in the long run. 
  • Fold away table. Want a table to eat on but do not want to give up the space? Consider a collapsible table or even a fold-up wall table.
