We love fall in KC! The weather is mild, there is gorgeous color around town and it’s the perfect time to get cozy at home before the holidays. Here are a few of our recent favorites to incorporate the feeling of fall inside your home!

FallCincinnati Recipe Chili Mix:  There’s no better meal for a cool evening than chili. Take a twist on this traditional favorite and give Cincinnati try! You can order a 6-pack of the spice mix on Amazon and it couldn’t be easier to make. You just add the mix, water, tomato paste and uncooked ground beef to a pot and let time do the rest. Serve it over spaghetti with shredded cheese for Three-Way or make Coneys!

Essential Oils:  If you don’t have your pumpkin spice candle burning already, we bet you will soon! Essential oils are another way to provide seasonal aroma to your home in a safe way that can also promote wellness. Right now, we’re loving On Guard from doTERRA. That name might not sound like fall, but we promise it has a nice scent with hints of orange peel, clove bud and cinnamon! The smell is great, but even better, the oil provides a natural alternative for immune support. Hello, flu season! You can diffuse it or even use it diluted as a surface cleaner or hand cleanser. Ask our friend and client, Lynn Salzman, to learn more about how the oil can help protect your family this season.

Halloween Pillows for Your Porch:  Add some whimsy to your outdoor space with this fun Halloween design. At $8 a pillow, this is an expensive way to bring a bit of Halloween home. Simple and classic this design can be used year after year, even as you adjust your Halloween décor. The pillows can be used indoors as well! Other designs are available at the link.

Louisburg Cider Donuts & More:  Love cider donuts, pumpkin butter and cider spices? Cozy, cozy, COZY! If you can’t make it out to Louisburg Cider Mill this year, no worries. You can order the flavors of the season to be delivered to your door! They even sell a donut pan to make their popular donuts at home. You’ll find fun holiday gift ideas online, too!

Outdoor Throw:  Fall evenings can turn crisp fast. Here’s a good-looking outdoor throw from Target to keep you warm around the fire pit! The black and white pattern will compliment most décor and adds a pop of style. And it’s 60-in. by 50 in. – plenty of room to snuggle up in!

fire pitThe first day of fall is less than a month away, which means cooler nights around the fire pit aren’t far behind! In recent years, we have noticed more homes across KC investing in outdoor living spaces. We see people expanding decks, adding stamped concrete patios and incorporating kitchen and fire pit designs to their hardscapes. Having or adding an outdoor living space expands your usable living space at home. And, it’s a fun way to have an extra area to entertain from during mild seasons!

This trend of investing in outdoor living does not appear to be slowing down. From our perspective, this serves as an indicator that our local market appreciates outdoor living additions. While the ROI on an outdoor project might not be 100%, these types of features can bring value to a home listing. And, you don’t need to make a huge investment to add a bit of outdoor ambiance to your home! A fire pit is a good place to start to enhance your outdoor space. It’s generally a smaller expense, and can retain value relatively well.

On top of that, NAR reports “not only can outdoor remodeling projects add value to a home on resale, but they can also bring advantages to homeowners planning to stay in their homes in the form of increased happiness.” So, even if you don’t get your money back dollar for dollar with a fire pit installation, there is also value for YOU while you enjoy nights with family and friends outdoors at home.

FIRE PIT INSTALLATION

We understand taking on a new home project can seem overwhelming. Often the best place to start is browsing ideas online. There are so many unique fire pit designs out there that run from sleek and sophisticated, to quant and rustic. You’re sure to find a style that suits your taste and budget! Have a look at some of our favorite outdoor entertaining designs on Pinterest, like these inexpensive DIY plans. A DIY job could be great if you want to try a small scale pit to see if it meets your needs before making a larger investment. This video from realtor.com also walks you through a DIY in just five steps!

For those of you looking for a more custom footprint as part of a larger design, we have some great folks to recommend to you! Always check our list of Trusted Vendors for most anything you need across KC. If you don’t find what you’re looking for or want additional names, just reach out to us and we’ll get you hooked up. One of us is always available at 913.402.2599.

Cheers to a cozy, fun fall!

Monday is the first day of spring! And with that will come all the spring cleaning checklists for a fresh start to the season. We can totally get behind spring cleaning and all of the great lists out there – after all, routine home maintenance is key to protecting your home’s value. But for many, the idea of spring cleaning is overwhelming and therefore gets skipped altogether. If that’s you, rather than go all in for a top-to-bottom spring clean, pick one project and do it well!

Even the most organized and tidy homeowners don’t tackle the “big” projects on a regular basis. We’re suggesting six projects to choose from – three indoor and three outdoor – and, including links to make it easy to start. Find one that’s manageable for you!

spring cleaningINDOOR PROJECTS

Clean Out the Fridge:  If you’re like us, you probably wipe the fridge after spills and maybe when you’re clearing space to add groceries. But this is home for all your perishable food and drink. A good deep clean several times a year is warranted. Once it’s shiny clean, think about pulling it out from the wall to vacuum away excess dust.

Dust Baseboards & Window Sills:  No one has time to deal with these regularly! Even if you tackle your baseboards and window sills once a year, that will make a difference in your home’s cleanliness and appearance.

Dust Blinds & Fans:  Just like the baseboards and window sills, we’ll bet these aren’t on your weekly cleaning list! Some will vacuum, some will use a duster, and some will use a rag and spray to get at the blinds and fans. Do what’s easiest for you!

OUTDOOR PROJECTS

Clean & Paint the Front Door:  A clean, bright entry is one of the fastest and most cost effective moves you can make to boost curb appeal. A fresh coat of paint will make a big impact!

Rake & Replace Mulch:  While this is one of the pricier projects of the ideas we’re suggesting, spring is the season to do this – especially if you’re planning to list your home for sale. New mulch will really make your beds pop!

Clean & Organize the Garage:  This is a biggie for one project, but it will make your home more functional and pleasing – we promise! No more tripping over shoes as you’re trying to get in the door, or balls rolling under the car when you try to back out. Getting salt off of concrete is also important.

Kansas City Real estate

Here’s to a beautiful KC spring! If you have bigger projects you need help with around the house, let us know. We work with lots of area vendors we would be happy to recommend to you.

And if you’re spring cleaning as motivation to get your home ready to sell – we’re ready for that, too! Our professional stager can come out with us to make a punch list of projects to tackle before you list. You can schedule an appointment for this with us anytime at 913.402.2599.
