The most critical things to do to increase your home’s value before putting it on the market.

The key is to focus on the most important repairs to make before selling a house to ensure every dollar you spend supports a higher asking price.
“Smaller and less expensive updates in combination with good staging will have a great return,” says Colorado Springs agent Susanna Haynie. But how do you know what things to do before … (2 comments)

amy mullen: How to Spring Clean If You’d Rather Play With Your Kids Instead! - 03/16/18 04:00 AM
By: Amy Howell Hirt
 
The key is to focus on the things your kids touch. Oh, and throw a party.
 
Ah, the guilt of parenthood: Your kiddos deserve real QT, but also a clean home.
 
Since there are only so many hours in a day, this spring cleaning plan hits the hot spots that tiny ones tend to find, so your fam can get back to the fun in a clean (if chaotic) space.
 
Clean Soft Surfaces
Kids are all over carpets, couch cushions, pillows, and duvets, and somehow even curtains (is that … peanut butter?).
 
These dirt-collecting materials need a deep-cleaning to get rid of allergy-causing dust, food … (0 comments)

By: Houselogic.com
 
How to find exactly what you want, and how to work with the experts who’ll help you get it.
 
So you’re thinking about buying your first home. Your very own house (and mortgage). A place to call — and make — your own.
 
It’s a big move, literally and figuratively. Buying a house requires a serious amount of money and time. The journey isn’t always easy. It isn’t always intuitive. But when you get the keys to your new home — that, friend, can be one of the most rewarding feelings pretty much ever.

amy mullen: 11 Striking Ways to Add Color to Any Room! - 03/09/18 04:25 AM
By: Leanne Potts
 
Paint a door super bright yellow, or the trim on a window for amazing results.
 
Buying a house — it’s such an adult thing to do. And putting work into it is another mature choice.
 
But when personalizing your home, the instinct to keep things adulty can also keep things pretty dull. Gray walls. White ceilings. Taupe for miles. Suddenly your house (read: your life) is booooring.
 
Time to dive into the pigment pool. Hot pink, wowza red, rich navy, and other colors with a capital C can be just as chic as neutrals, and they’re a lot more fun. Here are 11 … (0 comments)

By: Stacey Freed
 
You don’t want to go too cheap. But affordable options are out there.
 
About to remodel that old kitchen? Unless you’re cool with treating the hardest working room in your house like a museum exhibit, resist the temptation to buy the cheapest or shiniest materials available and go for durable options that can stand up to regular abuse.
 
Trust us: Although it may be tough to leave that raised, tempered glass bar top (ooo!) in the showroom, repairing its first (and second, and third) chip will get old. Very fast.

#1 Make an Anti-Mud Plan:
Mud may be the least of your frozen worries now, but it’s a-coming.

Research potential ground cover, like gravel, a rain garden, decorative rocks, or the right grass that’ll soak it up. Then you’ll be ready to execute your anti-mud plan the … (1 comments)
