Attention Homeowners! Follow These Tips To Refresh Your Home

We’re finally almost finished with one of the most brutal winters in Washington state history. Most of our team has been cooped up in our homes for days thanks to the snow that pounded the evergreen state. Some of that time was utilized to refresh our home. The time spent in our house gave us the chance to reorganize and clean things up. If you find yourself looking for a reason to refresh your home, follow the tips below.

Follow These Tips To Refresh Your Home

• Rearrange the furniture: This is probably one of the most simple ways you can refresh your home. Truthfully, you don’t even have to buy new furniture or artwork to create a new vibe in a room. Something as simple as switching up the pillows or adding a new blanket or two could do the trick.

• Cultivate a garden: You don’t have to have a green thumb to enjoy a garden. Some plants and vegetables require little to no attention.  Simply plant them, add water occasionally, and you’re good to go.

• Throw things away, recycle, and/or donate:  One of the best ways to relieve stress is to make things disappear around the house. I don’t mean losing things on purpose either. We’re referring to the fact that de-cluttering your home is arguably one of the best ways to clear up some space in your life.

Refreshing your home doesn’t always require a major investment of money or time. Adding touches here and there can even add or maintain property value.

4 Memorable Spots For Christmas Light Viewing In Greater Seattle

4 Memorable Spots For Christmas Light Viewing In Greater Seattle

During these darker times of the year in the PNW, it’s no surprise that some firmly take to the art of lighting up the night with their holiday displays. Some neighborhoods in the greater Seattle area even mandate a homeowner’s involvement in setting up a unique light display outside their home. For this reason and more it’s become a tradition in several neighborhoods around the city to create veritable pockets of winter wonderlands.

On top of the efforts of individuals around residential areas, there are also some bigger displays that are set up in the city. Many businesses utilize these fancy light displays to draw in foot-traffic in an otherwise slow time of the year for tourism and outdoor activities. We’ve put together four phenomenal places to view intricate holiday light arrangements the kids will love that are largely all free to view.

Candy Cane Lane

This is one of the eclectic neighborhoods that always offers stellar light displays free of charge for your family to view! Since 1949 Candy Cane Lane in the Ravenna neighborhood of North Seattle has been bringing in visitors from around the area to view whimsical displays. Twenty-three houses in a row all decked-out with lights, lawn ornaments, blow-ups and more for you and the kids to view. This display runs December 8th-January 1st so there’s time to check it out after Christmas!

Keener’s Christmas

This family in Bothell puts on a light display for the books. The Keener family has made a considerable mark in the area with their yearly Keener’s Christmas light showcase. Just Jeff and Candice Keener setting up over 500,000 lights at their home for your viewing pleasure. Not to mention their display helps raise money for the Ben Towne Foundation and serves as a food drive for HopeLink. You’ll want to stop by 16504 112 Pl. in Bothell for this truly heartfelt, and grandiose display.

Evergreen Lights

Also, a holiday favorite for families out in Snohomish County is the Evergreen Lights display at the Evergreen Church in Bothell. The kind people at this Church spend literally months putting together a display of over 500,000 lights. You and the kids can find them at 3429 240th St. SE and enjoy free cookies, cocoa, and naturally, a holiday family photo. This display runs nightly from 5-10pm from the beginning of December until Christmas Eve. Stop by for a one-of-a-kind light show dancing along to choreographed music.

4 Tips For Hosting A Successful Open House

4 Tips For Hosting A Successful Open House

You’ve made the home you’re about to sell on TheAdvisory look near-immaculate. You’ve catered to every nook and cranny of the property to make sure it’s in pristine viewing condition. But this isn’t enough. Neither is making a delicious spread of finger food. Several conditions need to be considered and met to walk away from your open house with a lengthy list of prospective buyers.

We’re not saying you need to beat a dead horse over details, but keep in mind people often get hung up in aesthetics. Aside from the obvious like the aaa heating ac repairs and the kitchen remodels, there are several other steps to making this a fruitful endeavor on your behalf as the agent hosting the open house. Here are four useful tips we believe will elevate your open house hosting experience as a new agent.

Marketing!

As with any event in the current digital time we live in, marketing through several avenues is vital. In order to grab the attention of several prospective buyers, you need to list your open house on every major social media platform. Advertise through larger websites such as Zillow, and set up targeted ads on Facebook. The more spaces you fill with your listing that more opportunities people will remember to come, so is important your website looks great and you can get this from sites as https://the-indexer.com/web-design-companies/ that offer these services. Diversify your listings on different media outlets with short videos, photos, and other related content.

Coordinating with other agents in the area could also prove useful. Teaming up for an “open house weekend” can also garner attention to your open house. Timing your event with another local gathering, business opening, or the like can also bring attention to your open house; there’s no shame in cross-promotion! Maybe you could partner with a local business even! Nothing can hurt to spread the word of the beautiful home you’re showing.

Don’t Go Alone

As previously mentioned, hailing the assistance of a fellow agent to offer safety in numbers during the showing can help immensely. Unfortunately, it’s worth mentioning the dangers that can befall you sitting alone in a house inviting in strangers. Aside from that, it also helps to have another set of hands on the job with you. Bringing in a trusted lender can also prove useful to further educate prospective buyers on lending options and help seal the deal on-the-spot.

Easy Contact Info Gathering

Going the old pencil and paper route can never steer you wrong. But with the technology available today, it serves to think of more inventive solutions to taking down contact info. Make it quick and easy for people to sign in to the open house. Having an iPad or tablet ready for people to enter their contact info into can expedite the process, and make you look more professional and tech savvy. The most obnoxious remorse comes from a bubbly conversation with a potential buyer that you can’t remember the name and email for after you forgot to write it down.

Invite The Neighbors In

Open houses have the tendency to draw in nosy neighbors who’ve been dying to set foot in a newly remodeled kitchen. It serves to cater somewhat to this crowd as they are potentially going to tell their friends about a nice home on their block. People tend to want to move their friends in to close proximity to themselves (but not too close.) Just make sure to have your belongings in a separate room that’s locked with nyc locksmith  services.

 

Holding a private showing an hour early of the actual one can create a sizable buzz in the local community. Those that come on “invite only” can feel like they hold special regard in their neighborhood, and will recommend it even further to friends and colleagues.
