Here are just a FEW reasons this home should jump to the top of your list!
  • Finished Lower Level + Extra Bed/Bath: The Fenwick IV by Hilmann Home Building is a generous floor plan, and the sellers expanded on this by finishing the lower level. Unique stained concrete floors flow through the recreation space, and a good-sized 6th bedroom offers 2 closets. One for clothes and an extended closet for larger items! And, the 5th full bath was done right! It offers tile, a nice vanity and walk-in tile shower! If a bar is in your basement dreams, the plumbing is in place for an easy addition. There’s also a fun hideaway for kiddos under the steps and a large storage area with built-in shelving!!

  • Upgrades Throughout: As a model, this home already came with some extras, like tile on the floors and surrounding all baths. And the sellers have made many smart choices that separate the home from the competition. You’ll love the plantation shutters in the great room and entry! Another significant addition is the painted garage with built-in shelves AND painted floors. The garage is clean and also doubles as a great space to watch the game or socialize from the driveway with neighbors!

It’s garage sale season! Signs are popping up all over town. Hosting a garage sale takes a lot of time and effort, so here are some tips to help make your sale a success!

Sort Your Set-Up:  Organize things by category and place like items nearby to help the flow of your sale. Place your big ticket or draw-in items front and center to attract people to your sale. Move things around as you sell, to keep it easy to shop. People are more likely to stay and shop if they don’t feel overwhelmed!

Price it Right:  Garage sale shoppers have an eye for a bargain, so price fairly to start. And keep your pricing easy so you don’t spend much time making change – increments of 25 cents is perfect! If you don’t want to spend lots of time pricing, use a dot system and price by color (ex: “All yellow items are $1). Make sure to get change the day before so you’re stocked and ready!

Talk it Up:  If your neighborhood is having a spring sale, add your home to the list and take advantage of the extra traffic and community sale will bring in! Just be sure to use your own signs to drive traffic to your sale. If you post on social media, include a couple pics that show some of your best pieces!

Clear it Out:  Schedule a donation pick-up with a local charity to stop by shortly after your sale, or find a place to deliver leftover items that are in good condition. Doing this ahead of time is a great and easy way to help others in our community in need!

Happy selling!!
