Deer Valley Real Estate Tip Of The Week: Your BFF In Real Estate

By Diana
Apr 17, 2017

Real estate can be a complicated and unpredictable undertaking, and you as a Deer Valley seller or a buyer know that you need to rely on a knowledgeable professional, one who can guide you through the real estate maze.  Once you’ve found that person or that team, it’s always wise to enter into a committed relationship with them.

Concentrating your efforts with one Realtor is the best way to get the most consistent results with your search for that perfect home.  After you’ve established that rapport with someone who understands your wants and needs, it’s a natural progression to build on it.  A Realtor is already committed to you, to helping you achieve your goal and knowing that you are as committed only makes  them work even harder to put you in that dream home of yours.

Choose your new BFF wisely and you’ve got a relationship that will last until the final marketing of your house and someone you can work well with to achieve mutual satisfaction of a goal. For rock solid advice on buying or selling real estate, call Craig Reece at 435-647-8017.

Deer Valley Specialist Tip Of The Week: Your April Home Checklist

By Diana
Apr 10, 2017

With lengthening days and milder temperatures in many parts of the country, April is a wonderful time to freshen up your Park City home inside and out. To get sparkling windows, a clutter-free garage and more, here are 9 tasks to make the most of the first full month of spring.

Boost curb appeal. Spring is a wonderful time to make upgrades to your home’s exterior, and even small changes — like putting up bold house numbers and a shiny new mailbox — can make a big impact. If you’re planning to put your house on the market this spring, increasing curb appeal can help lure in potential buyers, making it especially important.

1123107_Exterior_800x600Spruce up the front porch. Clean the porch floor, exterior windows, windowsills and front door. Wipe cobwebs from the ceiling and high corners. Lay down a fresh doormat, and plant a pot of flowers. If you have porch furniture, clean it off and wash the cushions.

Inspect paths and driveway. Repeated freezing and thawing can take a toll on asphalt and concrete. Check your driveway and paths for cracks, scheduling repairs as needed.

Wash windows. Welcome the spring sunshine by clearing dirt and grime from windows inside and out. After cleaning the glass, take an extra moment to wipe the window frame and sill.

Clean and inspect screen doors and windows. Pollen and grime can also build up on window screens, so it’s a good idea to clean them once a year. For a quick cleaning, leave screens in place and vacuum with a dusting attachment. For a deeper cleaning, remove screens (mark which is which if cleaning multiple windows) and gently scrub with warm, soapy water. Rinse and let dry.

Clear clutter. Create more space in your home by clearing out unloved items. If you have a lot to get rid of, set a date to hold a yard sale. Or contact a local charity to schedule a pickup — some will send a truck free of charge if you’re donating large items like furniture. If you have a lot of one type of item (for example, books or baby clothes), look for a consignment shop in your town where you may be able to sell them.

Schedule cooling-system maintenance. If you have central air conditioning, be sure to schedule professional maintenance before the start of summer. A properly maintained system cools better, uses less energy and lasts longer.

Clean out the garage. Can you park your car in your garage? If not (or if it’s a tight fit), it may be time to make some more space. Clear out the junk, and schedule time to take unused paint, motor oil and other hazardous items to a recycling center that accepts them.  Once your garage is cleaned out, consider adding wall-mounted storage to keep things neat and off the floor.

Clean gutters and downspouts. Having your home’s gutters and downspouts cleaned (and repaired if necessary) is one of the first important tasks to schedule this season. Clogged gutters during a rainy spring can cause water to pool, potentially damaging the roof and siding.
