Baseboard Maintenance

Baseboards aren't usually what makes or breaks a house sale but chipped or scuffed baseboards make the whole home look slightly more weathered. Just like the walls that are perched above them, some cleaning and a fresh coat of paint can make them look brand new. All it takes is some time and elbow grease. Applying new caulk can help seal out drafts and take your DIY project from humble to stylish. Our real estate agents know that a well cared for home is one where the less obvious parts are shown as much attention as the showpieces. Give some attention to the baseboards in your home with these simple tricks.

Fall Decorating

Fall offers so many opportunities to celebrate the change of seasons by changing things around in our homes. Subtle or striking, these changes are easily achieved by bringing fall outdoor colors and accents inside your home. Start at the porch and the front door, and work your way through the home. Our REALTORS® recommend making these seasonal decor changes, not only to get you in the mood for fall fun but also to attract attention if you're planning to sell your home.
