Last week at REO, the team attended a Tortuga’s Game in Daytona where they had the chance to eat complimentary food on behalf of Belly Buster Wednesdays at the stadium. Although the Toturga’s did not win, they all remained in high spirits and had a wonderful time!

 

Also that week, in celebration of Mother’s Day, REO honored our staff and agents to a beautiful luncheon at The Green Lion where they enjoyed yummy appetizers, refreshing salads, soups, and Cuban sandwiches followed by loads of laughter during our funny ice breaker game!

 

 


REO Home Seller Tips and Tricks

(Published on - 5/9/2022 5:13:34 PM)

 This month we’re sharing tips, tricks and stats on the home selling process! Here we’ve taken a  few tips from our home seller’s checklist to prepare you during your home selling process.

MAKE IT INVITING:

Start off by working on that lighting. No one wants a home that looks like a cave. So make sure to open those blinds, change the lightbulbs and possibly add some more fixtures to make your home as bright and inviting as possible. While you’re at it, you may want to touch up any scruffs on the walls and repaint, if necessary. If you tend to have darker colors on the walls that may close up the space, it’s suggested to repaint with a lighter airy color to again make the home more inviting and give the potential buyer a blank canvas for their imagination. It’s also a great way to modernize your home.  Lastly, fix any damaged hardware, flooring, and whatever else you can think of before getting your home ready to show. 

 

SHOW IT’S CARED FOR:

Cleanliness is indeed next to godliness.  First and foremost, clean those vents. You do not want your potential buyers to have to worry about dusty ventilation and baseboards. Additionally, before showing your home, you’ll want to remove any and all personal belongings and items from your home. This will help the buyer visualize what their future home will look like. It’s best to think of the psychology behind the home selling process. If you need to live in the house while it’s on the market, remove all unnecessary items: donate, sell, rent a storage unit — do whatever it takes to empty out the house to its bare minimum. If you’ve already moved out, empty it completely or stage it (your agent will know the pros). Remember, we want buyers to say “Wow!” — not “wow.” Organize those cabinets and closets. Empty and clean them out. 

 

BOOST CURB APPEAL 

Tidy up your landscaping by adding some greenery. Some plants and flowers can truly make a difference. While we’re talking green thumbs, it’s important to note that lawn care is a big part of maintaining curb appeal. Regularly care for your lawn by mowing the grass, raking off leaves, and pulling weeds. You can also boost curb appeal by having your front door stand out instead of blend in.Painting a front door only costs about $75, and is a pretty easy DIY job, even for beginners. Opt for a bold color that accentuates and enhances (rather than clashes with) the other colors of your home’s exterior. Clean gutters both inside and out, clearing out any debris and really scrubbing the outsiders until they look good as new (or as close to new as you can get them looking).

HOW TO GET INVOLVED WITH YOUR COMMUNITY AFTER MOVING

(Published on - 5/2/2022 6:16:03 PM)

 

Perhaps you’ve recently signed a rental lease or bought a home in an area you’re unfamiliar with. With the help of Realty Executives, finding the right home is a cinch! But settling in after moving can be a tough process. These resources will aid you with every aspect, from switching your address to meeting friends in your new community.

 

Making Important Changes

When you move, you have to deal with lots of logistical tasks that pop up! Here are a few of the most important responsibilities that you’ll need to tackle.

  • Before you arrive, you’ll need to contact your local utility providers to set up services like water and electricity in your home.
  • Changing your address with the post office should be one of the first items on your to-do list.
  • Head to the DMV to update your driver’s license with your new address.
  • Make an appointment with a new primary care physician shortly after you move in.
  • Check with your real estate agent to see if they offer moving concierge services from companies like MooveGuru or Updater. These types of systems can help you tackle many moving tasks from one platform.

 

Professional Networking

If you’re looking for a job in your new community, you’ll want to focus on networking in addition to sending out applications.

  • Look up networking events in your new city so that you can start connecting with other people in your field.
  • Consider enrolling in an online degree program to improve your job prospects.
  • Become a member of your local Chamber of Commerce for access to additional networking opportunities!

 

Having Fun

Making friends after moving can be challenging! These suggestions will make it easier.

  • Ready to make some new friends? Join an adult recreational sports league!
  • If your faith is an important part of your life, start seeking out a new church community.
  • Should you need more suggestions for social outlets in your new area, ask your real estate agent for their expert suggestions.

Moving marks a fresh start in your life, and it can be very exciting! But at the same time, it can also be very stressful. Thankfully, you can turn to these resources to take some guesswork out of the process.


6 Repairs To Make Before Selling Your Home

(Published on - 4/20/2022 4:00:07 PM)

 

If you've checked out our Instagram post, then it probably led you here! Here are the 6 tips to help you get your home ready before putting it on the market.

  1. Paint: It’s one of the cheapest and easiest ways to update your homeland and get it ready to list. Plus, you don’t need to be a pro. A quick Youtube video can help guide you in picking the right colors and making the first step.
  1. Exterior: Refreshing and boosting curb appeal with fresh mulch and planters with beautiful flowers is a great way to liven up the vibe of your home. Even pressure washing the driveway and sidewalks can make it more presentable.
  1. Kitchen: Scrub scrub scrub those cabinets, appliances and backsplashes! Install new hardware and light fixtures and if needed, replace the countertops. You don’t need to do a complete reno (unless your agent advises so) but sprucing up your kitchen will really make a difference. 
  1. Bathroom: Keep your bathroom not only clean by F u n c t i o n a l. Repair running toilets and leaky faucets. Consider replacing dingy toilet seats and hardware, if needed. 
  1. Lighting: The brighter the better. Try some breeze curtains or no curtains at all to let in as much light as possible. Great lighting can also truly represent how big and spacious the home is. 
  1. Floors: Freshly refinished floors really set the first impression when walking into a home for the first time. If you can and if need to, consider refinishing your wood floors. Also, the return on investment is very high!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

(Published on - 4/20/2022 3:59:06 PM)

 


We hope you are having a wonderfully tummy-filled Thursday!  

We started the day slowly as we prepared for our agents to start rolling in for our St. Patty’s Day Potluck at our office. One by one they strolled in bringing their contributions making our stomachs holler as the beautiful aromas coated our office. Before we ate, we sat around the table and told Alexa to play her preferred St. Patty’s day playlist to get us in the spirit and once it approached 12:00pm, we got to chompin'!

Our group of 15 gathered together to share in some shepherds pie, salad, macaroni and cheese, corn beef and cabbage and our many assortments of cupcakes. We laughed, stuffed our faces and ate enough to avoid food for the next 3 days.  

We send our well wishes to everyone today and hope that you get to enjoy this day as much as we have so far.
