Spring Cleanup

Believe it or not we are almost in March. It is not to early to start getting ready for spring. If you notice in the stores spring bulbs are here. Things like primrose, hyacinths, tulips in forcing bulbs are all here. It is going to be 72 degrees on Wednesday this week. It is a great time to get all the fall leaves all the lawn and out of the planting beds. If you want to start vegetables or herbs from seed, now is the time to do so. On this week's Modern Design my guest will be John Leahy of Weichert Realtors in Oldwick New Jersey. He will talk about Spring market and great ideas to get your home ready for Spring.

Staging is Everything

These days if you want to sell your home you need to stage it. No longer are the masses looking for fixer uppers. There is an understanding now that weather a home is brand new, 5 years old or 125 years old, it will look like a model home. People go to the internet now to start their search for a home, so pictures are everything. If you have a powder blue toilet, you probably will turn off potential buyers. There are a couple things you should do when you want to sell a house. First get a market analysis from 3 different realtors in your area. Look to see what you need to spend money on. You should then do the changes before the property goes on the market. Please remember pictures are everything now. Also you can do things that don't cost anything. Remove all clutter and get rid of personal items including pictures. Take out extra furniture and accessories, even if you have to get a storage unit temporarily.

You can even call in with your comments @ 908-237-0410.

Portrait Art

How many of us like having your picture taken. I would say not that many. Photography is funny. People who are very attractive can look less attractive on film, while other excel in photos even look better than they do in person. I believe the key to looking good in a photo is confidence and of course a photography who is truly an artist. Stephan Taylor is just that a portrait artist. Many of us have children or pets who we cherish. Keep in mind life is ever changing. Wouldn't it be great to capture the innocence of your young children or our parents and grandparents to be with us forever. The best way to do that is portrait art. I don't think you can make a better investment than portrait. It is not just a picture, over time it will become an heirloom. Join me this Wednesday from 2-3 pm est. Stephan will be with me and I will ask all the questions on what portrait art is and are we remised for not having one done. Watch On Facebook live. Go to Modern Design on Hunterdon Chamber Radio.
