Sunday Blessings

Grab a cup or coffee or tea – however you swing!

Sit back in your comfy spots – enjoy the moment – let the music fall all over you!

Think of all the things in your life that you have been blessed with, there is always something trust me – God packs all of our bags, he would never leave you with NOTHING. Sometimes it takes us peeling back all the layers to get to that one thing that you have been so blessed to have in your life. It could be a person, a place, a gift of humor, a gift of writing, a gift of singing, a gift of just listening.

We were all blessed with gifts.

How To Prepare Your Home For The Spring Market

Staging a Home

Selling Your Home in the Spring Means Preparing Your Home in the Winter For sellers, it’s important to start getting your home ready long before the snow is gone and the first flower blooms.

Interview Real Estate Agents

One of the most important thing to do when selling your home is to find a great agent to represent you. If you don’t have one already, then get recommendations from friends and interview different agents to find one who will be the best fit for you. A good listing agent should have a great marketing plan, experience, and deep knowledge of the area and market.

Begin Packing and Organizing Your Belongings

There’s no way to know for sure how long it will take for your home to sell – it could take a month, or years – and while it may seem crazy to start packing up your stuff before a sale occurs, it’s best to be prepared for any outcome.

Clear the Clutter

Prospective buyers are going to want to step into your home and see a place they can visualize living in and making their own. The best way to do that is to create a blank slate. Keep it neat, keep it clean, reduce the amount of clutter you have on shelves and surfaces, and depersonalize as much as you can. The idea is to showcase your home without distracting from it, you want to showcase the focal points and function of each room of the home.

Make Repairs and Improvements

The last thing anyone wants to do before they sell their home is to dump a bunch of money into it for an extensive renovation; however, there are minor repairs and improvements that can be made to make a home look fresher for potential buyers.

  • Freshen Up Paint, Front Door and Hardware

Applying a coat of paint to walls and trim, or even touching up certain areas, can make a world of difference in the appearance of your home. It’s also a good idea to spruce up your front door, since that’s the first thing a buyer will see when they walk in.

  •  Let the Light in

Buyers want homes to be light and bright, so replace your light bulbs or even add a lamp or two to lighten it up. Also, when your home is being shown make sure all the lights are on and the blinds are open.

  • Focus on Bathrooms and Kitchen

The bathrooms and kitchen tend to be a focal point in the homes, and buyers pay attention to whether or not they’ve been updated. Doing little things like re-grouting the tile on the bathroom floor, or caulking the shower and bathtub, can give a used bathroom a fresher look – even new faucets can make a difference.

  •  Spruce up the Curb Appeal

You want to impress potential buyers as soon as they step onto the property or take a drive by, which means making the outside of your home look as appealing as possible.  Make the extra effort to rake leaves, weed the garden, and mow the lawn. Clean and put out your outdoor furniture, and even consider adding some colorful plants to the front of the house.

If you’re ready – come go with me

If you’re ready for some kindness – no judgement – pure honesty – much empathy – Peace and harmony all between the races – “No economical exploitation No political domination” . . . What brilliant lyrics.

Then, you will be ready!

Today, go out there in your world and do ONE kind thing for someone, do something for someone that cannot repay you  – but you can watch that ONE thing have a forward motion to a place you never could imagine for yourself. I know this works, I did it myself a few years ago. During this past summer I got to hear and see what my ONE thing of kindness did for someone . . . That was the biggest payday I had ever received in my life No Cash or Check involved!

  • Turn up your Speakers – Get some ‘church’ going on in your house

  1. Living Areas: Determine what your focal point will be – if you don’t have a fireplace, consider a high piece (art canvas picture, decorative tray, or a grouping) to focus your attention and draw you into the room.
  2. Dining Place: Recall your favorite restaurant. Besides the good food, what was it about the ambience that spoke to you that you can recreate in your dining place at home?
  3. Kitchens: Hang a collection of various baskets (use nails without heads – 1.5” brads). Use the baskets for bread, fruit, napkins, and utensils. Be creative and artful when arranging them on the wall.
  4. Homework / Study Area: When we study, we love to lean back in our chair and put our feet up on a footstool (choose one with storage). A stool can also be a convenient place to rest a snack tray.
  5. Bedroom: Always have fresh-cut flowers or flowering plants to create an indoor garden for your private sanctuary. Grab a few bouquets of store-bought fresh flowers, separate them and create a bunch of small bouquets to place throughout the bedrooms – all year-long.

Fast 5 Friday

fast_five_logoA Clean & Tidy space is only a few mini projects away. Here are 5 fast tips for helping you keep your space sparkling and organized.

  1. Dishwasher is not just for dishes: Go around the house and collect the toys, soap dishes, car cup holders, sponges, pet dishes, dish racks. Put them all in the dishwasher and send them through a clean cycle.
  2. Wear The Glove Around The House: I have an extra pair of rubber gloves (label them) that I wear around house to wipe down furniture, pillows, blankets, lamp shades, stuffed animals, baseboards, door trims, small area rugs, and table clothes to get crumbs off.
  3. Gather up your wagon partner: Grab a wagon and wheel around to every room to pick up the belongings that need to be placed back to their home.
  4. Hang Coats: Hang all the coats laying around the house, and straighten up the shoes and boots by your entry door.
  5. Make The Bed: It will be your first task of the day, it will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task and then another task. It’s a reminder that the little things do matter.
