Welcome to Summer!

Summer is finally upon us. The very air in Summer seems to hold a vibrancy that is lacking in Winter; the sky appears more blue and the future just feels more promising. From golden sunshine to beautiful flowers, Summer can warm even the coldest heart. So, let's take advantage of all the beautiful weather days because t
he season for barbecues and pool parties is finally upon us.  Of course, this is also the time of year when, after thinking about it over the long Winter months, homeowners decide now is the time to put their homes on the market. If you have been thinking of buying or selling or just have real estate questions, please don't hesitate to contact me as there are buyers actively looking in this area right now.

Cut the Cord to Your Cable Company
and Save Money

When you move, you have a lot on your mind, but getting cable service transferred over doesn’t need to be one of them. For most people, when it comes to cable TV, they feel like they pay a lot and get a bunch of channels they never watch. An alternative, then, is to pay for what you want and ditch the cable packages. With these ideas, you can simplify and save money just by replacing your paid TV subscriptions with free or cheaper alternatives.


4 Porch Makeovers that Dramatically Transform These Homes

A welcoming and well-designed porch extends your home’s living space and creates an attractive view for visitors and homeowners alike. The following four porch makeovers show the impact a porch makes on the appearance of the home, from a closed-off screened porch turned open entry to a dark front porch given a bright and colorful paint job. Which porch would you like to come home to? Tell us in the Comments.
