His & Hers Design Views: Plus a Chance to Win 'Made for Living’
Ever find yourself completely smitten by a piece of home design, only to have your partner see it in a completely different light? Yep, welcome to my world. I recently stumbled upon Amber Lewis' book, 'Made for Living: Collected Interiors for All Sorts of Styles,' and I was instantly drawn to a shower door she featured. It was custom-made out of metal and had this incredibly chic, timeless look. To me, it screamed 'elegance.' Chad, my ever-pragmatic other half, looked at the same picture and burst out laughing. 'It looks like a storm door!' he said. And there it was—the perfect illustration of how two people can look at the...

Why Light Bulbs Matter More Than You Think When Selling Your Home This Fall
The leaves are changing, pumpkin spice lattes are back on the menu, and the days are getting noticeably shorter. Fall is upon us. If you're planning to sell your home this season, there's one element that you may have overlooked: your light bulbs.
The Importance of Proper Lighting We all know that first impressions matter, and in real estate, they can make or break a deal. With shorter days and longer nights, fall and winter are seasons where lighting can significantly affect the ambiance of your home. In many cases, potential buyers are visiting properties after work, which means they're stepping into your home during the evening hours when natural light is limited. Homes that are poorly lit can feel cramped and uninviting, which is the last impression you...

Declutter Your Cartersville Home the Smart Way: Two Must-Know Tips from Jenny Smith!

Well, why not make that day today? 🤔
Here are a couple of tips to help you declutter and make your living space feel like a breath of fresh air: 1️⃣ Assess What You Actually Need: Do a quick inventory of what's in that overstuffed closet. You'll probably find items you haven't used in years. If it's not serving a purpose, time to let...

Choosing Your Lender Wisely: Why Switching Lenders Midway Can Be Tricky!
Why is switching lenders in the process of buying a home an issue? When you're in the early stages of buying a home, it's crucial to approach lender selection thoughtfully. We recommend reaching out to multiple local lenders in the initial phases rather than relying solely on online options. Why? Because once you've signed a contract, starting over with a new lender can be complex. 📜 Additionally, keep in mind that different lenders might provide varying appraisals, which could necessitate additional appraisals. 📊🔍 Start off on the right foot by building your understanding of lending options—it'll pave the way for a smoother journey ahead. 💼🤝
