A woven mat, pot of flowers or a fresh coat of paint on a door are all details to create a friendly entry way.Is there room in a front closet or a peg or coat rack in a front room?

the moore team: Why I Moved to Keller Williams - 06/14/07 11:32 AM
Our move to Keller Williams represents the single most significant positive change we have made to our real estate business. Before joining Keller Williams, we were among the very top agents in our office at the largest Prudential affiliate in Arizona. We built our business and our team through hard work, persistence and a true passion for people and the real estate business. Those factors enabled us to grow into the top 3% of Prudential agents nationwide. So why change companies when things were going, by most measures, pretty well? The answer, in retrospect, is fairly simple. Success requires constant growth (1 comments)

the moore team: Bring Your Garden to Life - 06/11/07 11:10 AM
Growing a flower garden is good for you in all sorts of ways. It gets you outdoors and keeps you moving. It relieves stress. It uses muscles you never knew you had! It can be a time for solitary meditation or an all-inclusive family activity. If you're looking ahead to a move, then a flower garden can also add curb appeal that translates into higher resale value. One key point to remember is that it doesn't matter how much room you have - you can grow gardens in a space of any size, from a plot to a pot. It is important (0 comments)

In the last few years, tragedies like Hurricane Katrina and the fires in Southern California have been a cruel reminder that natural or other disasters can strike suddenly, at any time, anywhere, and sometimes, without warning. Experiencing a loss of your personal property as a result of a fire or natural disaster can be devastating. Most of us have a collection of household items that we have compiled over many years - in times of loss, trying to remember those items so that they can be replaced can be extremely difficult. It can be very helpful to conduct a home inventory. Taking this important (2 comments)

the moore team: Mortgage Free - 06/04/07 03:20 PM
When you close your eyes, do you picture a life without debt - without even a mortgage? For many people, owning a home is a lifelong dream. For others, having a low interest rate mortgage is a reward in itself, something that frees them up financially to invest their money elsewhere. There's no single right answer for everyone, but if you want it and make it a financial priority, a mortgage free life is attainable.

the moore team: Making Real and Positive Connections - 06/04/07 12:59 PM
"The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention... A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words." - Rachel Naomi Remen, Kitchen Table Wisdom The truth is that no matter how much attention we pay to the world around us, we can all use a lesson in effective communication. This industry is all about communication: effective listening and avoiding communication roadblocks.

the moore team: Remodeling vs Moving - 06/04/07 12:47 PM
If you can't decide whether to remodel or move, your answer might be - both, in that order! Remodeling can give you the added or different space you need now, but you should also carefully consider the resale value of any project you undertake. Some remodels allow for a bigger payoff than your original investment, while others might be needed just to keep the resale price on par with the neighborhood. Whatever remodeling project you take on, may it have a happy and high-value ending!

the moore team: Does Your Home Have Curb Appeal? - 06/04/07 12:34 PM
Would you go to a job interview with the remains of breakfast on your suit? Wearing mismatched shoes? With messy, uncombed hair? Of course not! When you're preparing to put your house on the market, think of it in similar terms: Before you'll get the "interview," you need to give your home its best outerview! These days, curb appeal is the key to getting past the first view from a potential buyer, either on the Internet, or their first drive-by sighting. Even if you have no immediate intentions of putting your home on the market, improving your outdoor living space can increase (2 comments)

Many of us have only heard of staging a home as an idea that's explored when we want to sell our home - it's been a proven method for increasing a home's selling price and decreasing the time a home spends on the market. Did you know that the methods professional home stagers use can also help to provide more comfort within our homes as we currently live in them? It is all about making your home a more welcoming environment. Staging can help you make your house more comfortable, and a better reflection of your personality, or make it reflect the (0 comments)
