cheval homes for sale: Top Notch curb appeal tips! - 08/11/13 01:19 PM
      If your home's curb appeal makes a great first impression, everyone will want to see what's inside, especially potential home buyers. Curb appeal is much more than just maintaining your lawn; it's also the radiance of your homes' exterior. Let's start with a focal point like the front door.  This is the most important because it's the entry way to what's beyond the great curb appeal outdoors.
      So let's make sure to keep it clean by wiping down the door handle, maybe even polish it. Be sure to also inspect your door for any … (0 comments)

cheval homes for sale: Space Saving ideas for the kitchen - 07/20/13 11:06 AM
  One of the area’s that creates the biggest challenge when we’re looking for space is the kitchen. Let’s face it kitchens are notorious when it comes to corners or when drawers and cabinet doors start bumping each other. On top of that you lose the extra space contained in the corner itself.
     This space can be easily utilized by installing corner drawers. The space is there so let’s use it.  Speaking of corners in the kitchen, what about the unoccupied kitchen wall? For both inside and outside corners, you can build a simple spice shelf and place the ones … (2 comments)

cheval homes for sale: Inexpensive ideas for creating some space in the kitchen - 07/13/13 01:38 PM
     A lot of my clients have been highly dissatisfied with the kitchen space in some the homes that I've shown them. And of course it's hard to tell by the pictures on the MLS depending on what type of agent took the photos. It's awful funny that typically the defaults in a home are purposely not shown in the listing photos. In my opinion; if listing agents would spend a few seconds more taking at least 15 pics of a listing instead of 1, it would save the entire profession of Realtors a bunch of time! It's not … (0 comments)

cheval homes for sale: Are the skeptics right about another recession coming? - 06/18/13 01:49 PM
      I don't think so! If you research where the Tampa Bay housing market was at just a me-er 2 years ago you will see that we were in the top 5 cities with the highest rate of foreclosures and now we are No.9! I know it's not much but at least we are moving in the right direction! I see home prices slowly but steadily starting to rise.        It's becoming very frustrating for my clients and I, when we go see a home and put an offer in on it after thinking about it for … (2 comments)

cheval homes for sale: It's never too late to start going "Green" - 06/13/13 04:52 AM
I find it amazing how these simple, everyday things are still important for caring for the planet. It’s also a good reminder that “going green” really isn’t all that hard. To me, being intentionally eco-friendly has much more to do with celebrating a wonderful planet created by a power much greater than all of us. 
  The thing I absolutely love most about eco-friendly green alternatives in around the house is that 9 out of 10 times, they are the more frugal option. And hey! Who doesn't wanna save money these days right !? There are many small steps we can all take to do … (0 comments)

cheval homes for sale: Florida's market is on the rebound! - 06/08/13 11:36 AM
     Florida's housing market is on the rebound and Canadian Snowbirds are playing a huge role in it's recovery! Beyond the obvious attraction of marvelous weather and gorgeous beaches, there are two factors that make Florida real estate an especially good value for Canadians! The 1st is that the median priced home in Florida is nearly half than that in Canada. At the same time, the Canadian dollar is traditionally 10% above "fair" value versus the U.S, dollar, arming Snowbird shoppers with extra buying power.
      There is growing demand for Florida real estate from foreign buyers, most … (1 comments)
