Millennials Are Doing What?!

(Published on - 6/4/2018 2:40:05 PM)

Think back to the very first home you purchased.  What was it like?

I think the majority of us can safely say that it was small—nothing to build a family around, and probably in need of many upgrades.  The house my parents first brought me home to was the top half of a 2-story duplex. With minimal space, heat that was in-and-out, and a bedroom not even big enough for a pack-n-play, Mom and Dad delighted in their very first home purchase and proudly took care of their little nook.

Over time, they creatively mapped out their dream home, knowing one day that they would upgrade. Slowly but surely, they renovated and updated what they could until it was time to sell.  Almost 30 years later, I have been a witness to my parents moving forward in the Real Estate world more than once, and I have finally seen their dream home come to life. This is a fairly typical progression for home owners alike.

The term ‘starter home’ is not unknown to Realtors; we all know what it is. It seems like a practical purchase—one that helps prepare for moving up and onward to something bigger in the future. Most of us have gone down this very path.

Surprisingly, a large number of Millennials have decided to skip the traditional starter home step and simply wait until they can purchase their forever homes—first! Is this becoming the new normal? What is causing such a change?

A good old-fashioned spring cleaning does the home, and the homeowner, good.

Some spring cleaning tasks tackled “the old-fashioned way” bring tried and true results. While other chores have a modern day, high-tech upgrade that can make your life easier. Keep reading for more options to help you accomplish some of the most popular spring cleaning tasks.

Vacuuming and Cleaning

There’s no escaping the need for vacuuming and general cleaning year-round. But spring cleaning is the time to get to hard-to-reach places and give your floors a refreshing, deeper clean.

Old-Fashioned

The old-fashioned way to vacuum and clean the floors is, well, to just do it. It sounds simple enough, but it can take a lot of effort.

Get out your vacuum with all of its extensions along with your floor cleaner of choice, whether that’s a combination sweeper/duster, a mop, or a bucket and a rag, and roll up your sleeves. The trick is to get all the nooks and crannies that easily get overlooked during regular cleanings by removing obstacles in your path. Those areas behind the couch, in between counters, and under all the beds will benefit from an old-fashioned cleaning.
