Tips for Adding a Fence on Your Property

November 7th, 2016 by tisner

adding a fenceOwning a home is a wonderful thing, but you should always be really careful to make the best choices if you make changes to the outside of your home and this includes putting up a fence of any kind.  There are a few tips for adding a fence to your property that you might want to take into consideration before doing so and some of those are listed below.

  1. Before putting up a fence on your property be sure to talk with your neighbors about it.  You need to keep in mind that you are not only putting up a fence in your backyard but you are also adding a fence to your neighbors land as well.  Talk with the neighbors that your fence will directly affect and discuss such things as property lines and types of fencing etc.
  2. Another thing to consider when adding a fence on your property is the color of the fence and also the style.  Will the color and style of your fence match your home?  If you need ideas of what style fence will look good with your house consider looking online at some ideas.
  3. You may want to consider planting trees to use as a fence if you decide you can’t find a style of fencing that will look good with your homes style. Cypress and pines are great for this type of privacy fencing and they never go out of style.
  4. If you decide to add a wooden fence, be sure that you know you will have to take care of it and paint or stain it every so often. If you want something that has less maintenance than that you may want to purchase a vinyl fence.
  5. You may want to consider cost as well when deciding what type of material you want your new fence made out of. Keeping within your budget is always a good idea when adding to your home.
  6. Longevity of the fence material is another thing to keep in mind when choosing fencing for your property. You don’t want to purchase a material that will need to be replaced sooner than you wish for it to.

These are just a few tips for adding a fence of any kind to your property.  Once you have gone over these tips you should be able to choose more wisely than you would have without them.

Paint Colors That Sell and Some That Don’t

February 17th, 2016 by tisner

paint color

A new paint color in your home can do wonders for your mood and and choosing the right paint color can do wonders for helping to sell your home. Paint colors can change your mood from happy to sad to relaxed or even make you angry. Why not do your part to make selling your home as easy as you possibly can by choosing the right paint colors. Below are some color ideas to get you started in the right direction.

  • Blue is a nice color for a home if you are looking for a peaceful feeling. Many people choose to paint the walls in their bedroom blue so that they will be more able to get a good night’s sleep. Some people like to paint a spa blue in their bathrooms to make it have a spa like feel. You can’t go wrong with blue paint when it comes to getting your home ready to sell.
  • Another color that gives a good tranquil feeling to everyone who enters your home is green. Green is associated with nature and nature is typically peaceful. You can use green in almost any room of your house where you want to feel calm and peaceful. Some folks use light green paint in their bathrooms while others use darker earth tone greens in their family rooms.
  • Yellow is a good color to paint in your home if you are interested in selling it because it makes folks feel happy and joyful. What better feeling would you want your prospective buyers to feel than joy and happiness as they enter your home. Typically yellows are used in hallways or large foyer areas. It is best however to stick with soft yellow colors and not get too carried away by attempting such as a mustard yellow color. Yellow paint done in the right way will appeal to most people.
  • Be careful with painting grey in your home if you are trying to sell it because sometimes although you may be going for a warm inviting feel you may end up with a cold harsh feel and that is not something you want your buyers to pick up on. Grey done right can be very relaxing and inviting. Perhaps talking with a paint expert at your local hardware store might be a good idea before using grey.
  • Brown is a typical staple color in a lot of homes. If you choose to paint beige which is a light form of brown in your home, you will likely find that it can be very warm and inviting to guests or potential buyers.

I would suggest not using orange or red in your home as a new paint color if you are going to be putting your house on the market anytime soon. These colors tend to make people feel anxious and or angry. Painting your home in a few new colors is a perfect way to get it ready for a great showing! Happy selling!

Home Improvements To Make Your Home Sell

February 4th, 2016 by tisner

home improvement

If you are considering selling your home in the next few months now is the time to get started on some home improvements so that you can get your house ready to put on the market! Below are a few ways you can get started on home improvements both inside and out.

  • A fresh coat of paint inside your home is a great way to improve the way your home looks and get it ready to put on the market.   Try to keep a neutral theme if you can when painting because you want others to be able to see themselves living in your home and not the other way around. You will likely be amazed at just how much difference a fresh coat of paint will make to your home.
  • Panting your front door a color that pops is a great way to get awesome curb appeal. Many folks will love your home simply because it has a red door and it stands out above all the others in the neighborhood. Use a pop of color on your front door to your advantage when trying to sell your home!
  • Pressure washing your home is a great way to make it shine if your home is vinyl siding. You may have lived in your house so long that you forgot what color your siding actually is until you pressure wash it. This is another way to have great curb appeal when you put your house on the market.
  • If your house has columns at the front it may be a good time to replace them or at least give them a fresh coat of paint. Over the years columns tend to expand and crack and make the house look older than it actually is. Give your home a facelift by taking care of issues like these before you put it on the market.
  • Refinishing your hardwoods is another way to make your home look its best. You can do this yourself or you may want to choose to hire someone to do it for you. Either way, refinishing your hardwoods is a great home improvement idea!
