A few tips to ward off robbery while selling your home ...
Keep home and outdoors looking fresh and maintained in all seasons.  Make sure there are no newspapers laying around, mail and packages aren't left to pile up on the doorstep. Also, make sure shrubbery is well maintained and left to grown out of control because this is an exellent place for burglars to hide behind them between the strub and your home.  The power of lighting is important.  Criminals are much less likely to break into a well lit entrance or home versus a dimly or poorly lit residence. … (0 comments)

Fall is a GREAT time to sell your home! It's a "Cozy" time of year that will make your home feel even more inviting with a few of these helpful tips.   
Don't "over decorate" for the Holidays (ie: Halloween and Thanksgiving).  Instead add subtle touches of Fall.  For example, changing out flowers in a vase or changing your wreath on your front door to a more Autumn one vs. just regular flowers.
