** PROUD HOMEOWNER MOMENT** Let me tell ya somethin’... for all ya fellas out there planning to buy a home not thinking you’re gonna become handy... you best believe that’ll change... for me at least it has! I’ve done quite a bit of electrical, a bit (small bit of woodwork) yard work and much more (and it’s been awesome!) But most recently, with the amazing help and tools from @josh21wells , I suprised sophie when she came home from her Israel trip and built out our pantry!! I’ll admit, I’ve never been handy, or had an opportunity to become handy. But moving into this home is bring out new excitements, hardships and learning opportunities! Didn’t have the money to get something custom, so I used my hands, hard work, friends and mistakes to persevere through. @sophia_streight sophia_streight fortunately liked it so it’s here to stay! On to the next home project. Swipe right to see the process. #homeownership#builtmyownpantry#handson#becomehandy#doityourself#homereno#mywifeisthebest#hardworkpaysoff

Regardless of the season... if you're selling your home, there are a number of things you can do to improve your property's potential value and appeal. Creating curb appeal is one of the most effective and easy ways to accomplish this and to increase the interest of potential buyers in your home. Here are some simple and inexpensive ways you can increase your home's curb appeal. .
Use Color Effectively
Color can be a power tool in attracting people to your home. If the exterior of your home could use a fresh coat of paint or a new door, this is a great opportunity to add some points of interest to your property. Always remember, however, more is less-choose colors that are similar to other homes in the area. You can infuse more vibrant and interesting colors through accent features and flowers or plants. .
Create An Inviting Entrance
Making the entrance to your home attractive and inviting will give potential buyers an instant sense of welcome the moment they walk through the door. Make the door the focal point of the exterior of your home, and think about elements such as lighting and color to make it as attractive as possible. Also think about details such as including a nice welcome mat on your front step, some flowers in attractive pots or urns flanking the entrance, and even consider adding a chair with a small table if you have a larger porch area. .
Landscaping Is A Must!
Making your lawn and yard attractive, free of clutter and debris, and nicely landscaped can really make all the difference in adding curb appeal. First remove all weeds, fix any areas on your lawn that need repair, and mow it carefully. If you have any unsightly items or clutter in the yard, remove it and replace it with well-placed flowers and plants. If you have a large front yard with no trees, consider planting one or two to add interest and value to the property. .
These are just a few of the many ways in which, with a little effort and a small amount of money, you can increase interest in your home..
25+ Years Helping Clients Buy, Sell and Invest in #realestate... I’d be happy to help you too!❤️
5 yrs or so ago, I agreed first to show a property w/o knowing the details, during the call to the listing agent I was informed that due to sellers financial situation, they’re not paying any commissions. True to my words, I showed it anyway. Sure enough they liked it, told them the story & gave the buyer the listing agents contact info if they want to proceed for no additional cost, otherwise, it will cost $15k (full price) to hire me...I walked out thinking they’ll never call me back...I was mistaken, we closed that transaction in 2 weeks. I then asked, was I worth it? Without hesitation, they told me, “YES...every single penny because you’re honest & had our best interest at heart right from the start”. Fast forward to today, a previous client not only referred me but showed up to the appt to help seal the deal. Last week, another amazing clients said I can name my price!!! Just blown away by the kindness & support of once complete strangers...we often doubt ourselves and think we’re not worth it. If you find yourself here, let me tell you, stop doubting & start believing because you’re good enough!!! Xoxo
Flashback to 11•11•16.
This picture was taken a few days before and I MEANT to post it yesterday but it slipped my mind. Anyways... 11•11•16 was the day Rich and I moved into our first home. It was a day we never thought we’d see and still one of our proudest moments today. Even after 2 years, there are still many days that I am still in disbelief just pulling into the driveway and knowing it is ours.
While we love our home, it has definitely presented a lot of challenges. There are so many things nobody tells you when you are buying a home- the new tasks and chores you’ll take on, the new expenses, the property taxes, and so forth. You don’t realize that trips to Home Depot will become routine or that weekends will be spent performing routine maintenance such as mowing the grass or cleaning the gutters.
Something else you don’t realize is how it will change you. For Rich and I, we became closer and it helped us grow both individually and as a couple. We always considered ourselves part of a very small team of two. But it was buying this house after 9 years together that truly made us a team. We started being more responsible than either of us ever had to be. Started learning and doing things neither one of us knew how to do (this high maintenance chick cuts grass and digs in the dirt 😳). And although there have been moments of stress and times we have felt overwhelmed, at the end of the day we are in this together. After years of apartment living, we have enjoyed not having to worry about what hours we can vacuum (hey! It’s the little things 🤷🏼♀️) or how loud our tv is (being able to blast it took some getting used to 😂). We’ve had fun figuring out how we want to decorate and make our house a home. Most of all, I am so very happy and thankful to get to share this home with the person I do - my love, my best friend, my partner in crime, my team mate for life. ❤️🏠 #homeownership#futurehubby#goodlife#lucky#thankful#grateful#blessed#flashback

When the impossible became possible all due to Nicky’s knowledge of the industry
Highly recommend Nicky for all your mortgage needs!
This is a 2015 Mercedes C300. I wanted to buy it really, really bad! It was at my local car dealership right after I paid my car off. Here's the deal: I am in the process of looking to buy my first house. If I would have got a loan for this vehicle, my debt to income ratio would be too low to afford a quality house. If you live near Tacoma, WA, you know that this does not give you many options because of the 10% increase in home prices in the last year here. Not having this beautiful, compact luxury car right now will allow me to seek out a quality home at a higher price point that will likely go up in value in the next few years. I feel this is a sacrifice I must make to own property and increase my options for the future. 3 months later, I made an offer on a lovely home on a half acre. Here's hoping they accept my bid. #DelayedGratification#HomeOverCars#homeownership
“Dedication, hard work plus patience,
the sum of all my sacrifice I’m done waiting, I’m done waiting told you that i wasn’t playing , now you see what I been saying ..... DEDICATION!” New kid on the block
