A new year is fast approaching. Are you ready?
We've managed to get by the holidays with out too much fuss. Everyone is doing well here, no sickness around. My husband of course, is still getting radiation treatments for his prostate cancer, but he's really been doing wonderfully well with it. Our THANKS to the folks at St. Luke's Hospital and the Radiation Dept. too, for their patience, kindness and general support. We've fast become fond of Dr's Butler and DeGuerre and would highly recommend their services to anyone going through this. They are so knowledgeable and just all around decent men. Hat's off to them and their team in their offices. Great people, all!
Business here had slowed down for the holidays, but we're beginning to see some movement now. We still have great interest rates so buyers should welcome that! Typically Spring would be the best time to make a move, but it sure wouldn't hurt to start looking now. Winter here in the St. Louis area is usually pretty nice. We do get a couple of snow storms but usually the weather gives us a break.
For those of you that are sellers, now's the time to get your home in tip-top shape. Paint a nice neutral color on the walls (beige or very light colors) and use the WD-40 where there are squeaky hinges. Replace anything that is looking "old" or rundown. By the way...be sure to MOVE the furniture/appliances out of the way before you paint. I've seen where some folks just paint around and over them. Pretty tacky, you know?
Landscaping is important too. You need to make the entry to your home inviting.
Clean, clean, clean! If you can't do it for some reason, hire someone to do it for you.
I look forward to listing your home or helping you to find that special home (or condo!) that you want. What a great way to start your new year.
