Tops of entertainment centers and stands shouldn’t be bare but they also should show! Often times homeowners pack on the pictures and collectibles too heavy leading to lots of beautiful items with no way to focus in on any. Less is more. Pick the items you want to keep or the ones that make the best statement or compliment the room’s decor. Make a select few focal points and let them stand alone.
Curb appeal is everything! You can take two identical homes next door to each other, both for sale. The first home has a cluttered yard with tall grass and weeds. The shutters on the house are chipping. There are toys in the yard. When you open the screen door, it’s half way off the hinges. The inside is fairly cluttered as well, and the wall could use a coat of paint. On the other hand, the owners of the home next door paid 0 for a landscaper to mow the lawn, trim the shrubs and clear the gutters. Inside, they added a fresh coat of paint and cleared up all the clutter. Again, the two homes are identical. Both owners paid the same amount for the same model. Guess which home is going to fetch more money?
Self-contained units are also options, but given our lifestyle I don’t anticipate that an option. But you might. Whichever style you select, be sure to look for a toilet system that conforms to American National Standards Institute’s (ANSI) composting toilets standards.
You can also buy some artificial vines that best suit your garden. It is not difficult to acquire and you will have no problem installing it into your mini garden. Just imagine that you may create a swing with decorative vines in one area of your garden. On the other hand, you can place garden chairs and tables with shade made of artificial vines. You seem to create a mini park in front of your house then. Such lovely view will definitely catch much attention.
However, I would recommend you get started by getting some plans or at least patio design ideas from an architect, builder or fine cuisine at home. Having your patio design laid out first will save you a lot of frustration. Since the pergola style for patio covers is probably the simplest, it is the most common and even most elegant looking.
The “over-priced” listing. This one is generally the polar opposite of the dog house listing. This is one of those sellers who has the best looking home on the block, and so he mistakenly believes that translates into a higher sale price. Maybe he’s spent lots of money on upgrades, a swimming pool, an in-ground hot tub, landscaping, an out building, and so on. He naturally assumes that since the money was spent on his home, it is a good investment. So he insists on pricing the home outside the reasonable range of value. Is this a bad listing? No!
If you have high-speed internet access at home, get a list of dialup numbers from them for around the country or consider an AOL account or other national provider. If you can’t access the internet one way you should be able to access it another way.
