spring lawn care

Spring Lawn Care Tips

Spring Lawn Care Tips

Spring is rapidly approaching.  We may still get some snow but it will likely melt quickly.  Now is a great time to start thinking about spring landscaping maintenance.

The snowdrops and crocuses are starting to spring up and green daffodil shoots are sprouting up through the leaves.  Now is the time to start working on your landscaping.

Start by raking the lawn and flowerbeds.  Rake up the fall leaves, dead grass and sticks that have fallen down from the trees with the high winds. Uncover all the green shoots hidden under the leaves in your flowerbeds.  It may be a good time to add fresh mulch to your flowerbeds.  Weed and then mulch.

Test your soil ph and fertilize your lawn accordingly. Weed and feed but don’t overdo it.

Aerate your lawn so water and nutrients are better absorbed.  There are many ways to do this.  You can opt for aeration shoes and get some exercise or rent a larger tool.

Fill in any bare spots in the lawn.  Rake them up and dig up the soil a little. If needed, add loam and reseed.  Keep the seeds wet and watered. Pick the right seeds for your area of the country.

Now is the time to get the lawn mower out and have it serviced or check the fluids and fuel yourself.  Drain any old fuel out which has set all winter.

Wait to cut the grass until it is tall enough.  Cutting too short and too often is not good for the lawn. Always cut the top third of the blade of grass and don’t bag it.  If you mow on a regular basis, the clippings are good for the lawn.

It’s a great time of year to get outside and work on your landscaping and keep your home looking it’s best for spring.

Have you always dreamed of becoming a real estate agent and helping clients buy or sell their homes.  Spring is a great time to get started.  Start with our online courses and finish with LIVE hours to finish your requirements to sit for your real estate exam.  Our Rise Welcome Center in Mattapoisett is busy with students preparing for their real estate license.

winter storm

Winter Storm Tips

Even though it may seem like we’ve had a pretty easy winter so far, yesterday’s wind storm reminded us that we still have a lot of winter left whatever the Groundhog says.

The high winds and rain left many roads impassable with downed trees resulting in many power outages throughout the Southcoast.

While we can’t change the weather, here are some tips to be prepared for the next winter storm.

Keep an eye on the weather and weather alerts so you are not caught off guard when the next storm hits.

Check your home’s ability to keep out the cold, such as weatherstripping, insulation, and caulking to prevent frozen pipes and heat loss.

Make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are all in working order.  Replace batteries if needed. These can be life-saving during a storm.

Loss of power is always a given.  Make sure you  stock up on essentials and flashlights with batteries. You may want to fill your tub for toilet flushing if you have a well.  Better yet, consider investing in a generator which can get you through many days without electricity.

Consider your elderly family and neighbors also.  Check on them and make sure they are ok and if they need assistance with any chores, especially snow shoveling.

Winter is still with us for a couple of months, so it’s always better to be prepared.

Agent Rising Real Estate School has your back and has everything you need to start your real estate career.  We also offer continuing education credits and classes for seasoned agents.  This includes broker and designation classes.

buyers

What Are Buyers Looking For?

What are buyers really looking for in a house?  Of course, there are the staples we all think of, first and foremost being location, location, location.

There are also a certain number of bedrooms and bathrooms, maybe an open floor plan or granite countertops,  and the price is always a deciding factor, but there are other factors that clients may not even be aware of.

Is the house a true fit?  Many buyers subconsciously either love a  house, hate it, or are indifferent.  It could be associated with certain smells, that either remind them of a house they loved or didn’t love.  It could be a house that reminds them of a home  from their childhood with good memories.  It could have certain features that really sell it for them, like a fireplace, or a beautiful staircase.  Either way people sometimes react to houses in a way that even they don’t understand.

If it’s a house they love, they will do everything possible to own it.  The hard situation is when one of the buyers is in love and one may be indifferent or even not liking the house at all.

With a competetive market and low inventory, buyers may have to make an offer quickly on a house they love to avoid missing out.  Making a competitive offer is key to buying the house of their dreams.

Some clients will say that certain houses just feel right, like their home.  When that happens, it’s a great feeling.  It’s a harder situation when they keep looking but find a lot of houses that they feel “ok” about but not enough to make an offer.

Usually they will find their dream house, it’s just a matter of time.  It may take a lot of patience, but when they find their true fit, it’s worth it.
