Bring Fall into Your Home…Starting with the Front Porch!

Article from The Real Estate Book The best fall looks are all about warm hues, natural materials, and soft, golden light. Haystacks, pumpkins, and scarecrows are classic front porch pieces but too much of any of these can easily turn your seasonal decorating plan into a busy, kitschy mess. Follow these tips to recreate the simple allure of a cool autumn day, starting with your front porch! Even if you don’t have room for rocking chairs and antique wagons, you can transform your front porch into an autumn wonderland with a few simple pieces. Let the colors and textures of fall inspire you. Flowers in warm oranges, bright yellows, and deep reds evoke the natural beauty of the season. Choose plants that do well in cooler weather like mums, pansies, and coneflowers, which will look beautiful planted together. Terracotta pots or rustic wooden baskets are the perfect choice for colorful, seasonal container gardens. Pumpkins are probably the most popular choice for fall décor, but hard-shell and ornamental gourds can also be used to add color and texture. Place in clusters leading up your steps or beside your welcome mat. More narrow entrances will look better with fewer pieces—one small pumpkin on each step will do the trick. To achieve a traditional, Americana look, use natural materials that allude to our nation’s rich agricultural history. Capture the simple essence of the harvest season with scarecrows, hay, and dried ears of corn, but remember: less is more. Plaid flannel accents—whether on a scarecrow’s shirt, a lightly frayed table cloth, or a wreath’s ribbon—are a nice touch. If you can find them,...

Most of the tasks listed below are well with-in the average person’s ability. But even if you choose to have a professional handle them, it’s worth the expense.

Seal gaps and cracks around windows and doors with weather-stripping and caulk. Get on top of roof problems. Inspect your roof for damaged or curled shingles, corroded flashing, or leaky vents. Walks the walks (and drives). Take steps to repair damaged sidewalks, driveways, and steps. Chill out. Drain and winterize outdoor faucets and irrigation systems. Freshen your filter. Clean or replace dirty furnace filters. Give your furnace a physical. Have a professional inspect your heating system. Gather round the hearth. Check fireplaces for soot or creosote build-up. Better yet, schedule a visit from a reputable chimney sweep. Keep the humidifier humming. Clean the plates or pads to ensure efficient operation. Head-off gas problems. If you have a gas-fired room heater, have it inspected by a pro. Also, perform any routine maintenance recommended by the maker. Keep the wood fires burning brightly.

4 Fall Yard Maintenance Chores to Tackle Now (and 1 to Skip)

Another glorious autumn season has arrived—and that means your lawn will require some serious fall yard maintenance. We know, we know—that’s not exactly your idea of fun, but your yard is quietly crying out for a little TLC before it drifts into the deep freeze of winter. Good news: If you put in the time to tackle chores now, you’ll be all set and sitting pretty come spring. Even better news: There are actually a few traditional fall maintenance tasks that the experts say you should actually skip! Go ahead, read on to learn which chores to do and to avoid. Things to do right off the bat   1. Pull a soil sample The most important fall yard chore is the one least done: pulling a soil sample and sending it in for analysis at your County Extension Office—the government agency charged with helping citizens improve the land under their feet, free of charge. “It will give you a baseline level that might tell you to reduce the fertilizer you’re applying, which will save you money and keep extra nutrients out of the environment,” says Jeremy DeLisle, program coordinator for the University of New Hampshire Extension Education Center in Goffstown, NH. “It’s important to pull the sample before the ground freezes.” So do it. Soil test results will tell you what your soil lacks and what amendments you should add to give green things a fighting chance to survive. That might mean adding compost or lime to soil before winter sets in, which will condition the soil so you’re all set come spring when you start planting. 2. Protect fragile plants Newly planted trees, fussy ornamentals,...

A Seller’s Guide to a Winning Open House

In the month of September, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England & Westchester Properties is having an Open House Every Day! >>Search Open Houses Now Holding an open house for your soon-to-be-listed or newly on the market home is a lot like being on a game show where edging out the other contestants in a short period of time is key. In TV game shows, such as “Jeopardy,” the contestants don’t automatically know answers to so many trivia questions; they study and they plan and they make it appear to viewers like they walk around with that body of knowledge every day. Open houses need to be thought of similarly. Once your home is on the market, an open house is your opportunity to plan and strategize how you are going to win over buyers in very short time. Even in a strong real estate market where houses sell quickly, it’s still important to ask your agent to hold as many open houses as possible until the home sells. One reason is that even buyers with agents still like to look at homes on their own without feeling the pressure of a home tour. Sometimes their agent is out of town when your house goes on the market. Many buyers are not represented by an agent and the only way for them to tour a home is through an open house. Your agent will plan the open house to include everything from signage to freshly baked cookies. As a seller, you should take the following steps: Depersonalize Back to the game show analogy, think of depersonalizing as studying the answers...

Consumers’ Perception of U.S. Housing Gains Ground; Boomers Make Noise While Millennials Exercise Patience in Quest for Homes

Wallingford, CT – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, part of the HSF Affiliates LLC family of real estate brokerage franchise networks, and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England and Westchester Properties today released results of its latest Homeowner Sentiment Survey indicating that current and prospective homeowners remain optimistic about the current state of the U.S. real estate market. Respondents cite higher home values, increasing housing inventory and low interest rates as the main reasons for their optimism. The survey showed that 66% of existing homeowners view the U.S. real estate market favorably, representing a 5-percentage point jump since spring to the highest level in more than a year. Favorability also grew most among baby boomers, who are making noise with a newly favorable attitude toward the housing market. To date, boomers have been the most pessimistic group tracked in the ongoing survey but the latest results reveal a full 60% of boomers view the housing market favorably, a 6-point increase since last spring. “We find this data particularly interesting in light of the housing-inventory shortage seen in many markets,” said Gino Blefari, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “As homeowners feel increasingly confident about the outlook of housing and their homeownership investments, they are more likely to consider a move for themselves – up, down or laterally to another market. Perhaps this is a signal that more existing homes may gradually come to market freeing up more options for first-time and move-up buyers.” “The heightened activity of first time buyers is creating movement in second tier pricing which is allowing baby boomers to make life decisions,” said Candace Adams, President and CEO of...

3 Keys to a Successful Open House

In the month of September, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England & Westchester Properties is having an Open House Every Day! >>Search Open Houses Now Article from U.S. News – Open houses have always been a staple in a listing agent’s bag of marketing tools and with good reason. In the National Association of Realtors 2015 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers , it was reported that 48 percent of homebuyers used open houses as a source to gather information in their home purchasing process. To sell your house, you need to give buyers the opportunity to actually spend time in your home, not just look at pictures online. Creating an effective open house requires careful collaboration between you and your real estate agent. You will need to take into account when the listing is going on the market, where the most effective advertising will be, and how to set up your home so it shows to its full potential. Here are three key things that help to ensure a successful open house. A Carefully Crafted Timeline. You can expect the first open house to be held within the first two weeks of placing it on the market, ideally during the first weekend. When potential buyers are notified of a new listing in their online searches, already having that first open house scheduled can give them a default window of time to view it if they aren’t able to do so sooner. Any real estate agent will tell you being able to time the market perfectly can’t be done. That said, there are considerations to take when listing your house. If your agent...

4 Ways The Real Estate Market Changes After Labor Day

The time between Labor Day and Thanksgiving, unofficially known as fall, is prime time for enjoying the great outdoors. And while there’s no substitute for spending time in natural green spaces, if you’re in the market for a house, fall weather presents an ideal backdrop for strolling through potential neighborhoods and checking out real estate for sale in Atlanta, GA, or Minneapolis, MN. While some homeseekers might throw in the towel after Labor Day and wait until spring to begin a new search, others will find some definite advantages to starting their home pursuit in September. Find out how the market changes after Labor Day and what makes it a pivotal day for the real estate industry. 1. Fall real estate can be more of a buyer’s market A buyer’s market means you, as a buyer, are in the driver’s seat. That’s good news if you’re home-hunting in the fall: There are typically fewer buyers after Labor Day. “This, of course, is dependent upon local market cycles,” says Michael Kelczewski, a Pennsylvania and Delaware agent. “But typically, families need to be settled into a home by the start of the school year.” And the date school starts can’t be moved. “This results in plenty of ‘fun’ conversations between spouses, as there’s no negotiating when they need to be in the house,” Connecticut agent Scott Elwell says. But if you don’t have school-age kids, the school year doesn’t matter and you can take advantage of this. You might find that competition is down for homes after Labor Day, meaning you’re probably in a buyer’s market. And this is significant. “I...

What Colors Make a Room Look Bigger?

Most people crave spacious homes. But, sadly, the reality is often quite different. The good news: If your bedroom or office feels cramped, that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to start knocking down walls or building additions to create a more open, airy ambiance. We have some answers! A room’s size, after all, is as much a matter of perception as it is the nitty-gritty square footage. One easy way to create the illusion of space is to carefully choose the paint you slap on those walls. Read on to learn what colors make a room look bigger, and get to it! White Designers love covering a tiny room in white paint, which promises to make even the smallest spaces feel a bit more grand. Because white reflects light, the room will feel brighter and more open. Plus, white walls give homeowners unlimited freedom to decorate (or even pick a fun, bright accent wall). “White will make any room appear bigger and complement the natural lighting,” saysThan Merrill, a real estate investor and host of A&E’s “Flip This House.” Read full article on...
