Should you Renovate before you Sell?
It would be wonderful if homeowners could recover the money they invested in renovations when they sell their home, but that isn't always the reality.

While some homeowners make smart investments in upgrades, there are also many stories that show that fixing up a home before selling doesn't always have a positive return.

There are three critical questions you should ask that could help you make the right decision:

• Are the other homes in your area updated?
• Do updated homes sell for more than outdated homes in your area?
• Can you renovate or remodel while sticking to a strict budget?

Sometimes the answers are not as simple as yes or no. I can help you with this decision. Give me a shout and let's figure out together if you should renovate or not.

Simple Home Staging Tips for Fall

Fall offers more than just pumpkin picking and back-to-school photos. If you're looking to sell your home, consider the advantages of doing so during this season. With less competition in the market after the peak selling season, and the sensory appeal of autumn, you can stage your home to make it more attractive to buyers. Want to know how? Try these fall home staging tips, and you could close the deal before the holidays.

• Brighten Up: Not only do well-lit rooms look larger, they look more inviting. Find lamps that double as room accessories.

• Provide Space for Outerwear: Having a space to hang outerwear will take away the burden of carrying those items throughout the home and will also prevent water, dirt, leaves and other fall debris from being transferred from one room to another.

• Turn On the Heat: Find a reasonable temperature and make sure it’s even throughout the house. If there’s a part of the house that doesn’t heat well, turn on a space heater to warm the room before the showing begins.

• Emphasize Coziness: Implement cozy fabrics in your décor through cashmere or flannel throw blankets and toss in a few knit pillows on your chairs.

• Use Seasonal Scents: Autumnal-scented candles tie to emotion evoking memories of apple picking, pumpkin carving, leaf raking, etc.

• Keep Your Curb Appeal: Rake your leaves, trim bushes, clean gutters, plant fall flowers, and maybe add subtle touches to your porch like a wreath.


Happy Thanksgiving!
Wishing you a Thanksgiving filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories that will warm your heart for years to come.

How to host Thanksgiving in your "for-sale" home
Hosting Thanksgiving dinners can be quite overwhelming, and the task becomes even more formidable when your home is on the market.

Naturally, you aim to ensure your guests have a delightful experience, but you must also be cautious not to let your hosting responsibilities impede the favorable impression your residence makes on prospective buyers.

Try these tips so you can still have a wonderful celebration while keeping your house stage-ready:

Don't Over-Shop
Delegate Responsibility
Use Throw-Away Supplies
Consider Catering
Give Guests Food to Bring Home

This way, when prospective buyers tour your property during the weekend following Thanksgiving, they will have no indication that you recently hosted an event.
