"Preparing Your Space For a Move"
Spend some time organizing your closets, spring-cleaning your office, and looking into that junk drawer to eliminate unnecessary stress from your life. You may be surprised how fresh you feel afterwards.
Cleaning Your Windows
Vinegar is a miracle from nature. Completely non-toxic and antibacterial, vinegar is actually beneficial to any surface it touches. It safely kills germs and is much more economical than chemical cleaning solutions. It’s not even harmful when accidentally inhaled or ingested. (If you’ve got kids, you’ll love that part).
The acidic composition of vinegar acts quickly to break down the kind of film that frequently accumulates on glass surfaces. When you wash a window using a solution that contains vinegar, the results will almost always be free from streaks and sparkling clean.
When preparing your home for sale, depersonalizing it is an important step in the home staging process. Now that virtually all Buyers start their home search on the internet, it's even more important to depersonalize your home before taking your online listing photos.
I build my business on integrity and service. The highest compliment I can receive is the referral of friends, family and business associates.
Thank you for your trust & be safe!

1. START A MORNING RITUAL: Sometimes in the winter we get lazy with our morning routines, especially since it’s dark outside. Use the sun’s earlier rise to your advantage and use it as fuel to start your day with an extra boost of vigor and a new ritual!
2. CREATE A NOT-TO-DO-LIST. Meaning, all phones are off after 8:PM in your home...or No-Commitments Fridays, is Family Night!
3. Prepare Your Garden for Spring Do some cleaning. The first step to prepping your lawn for spring is to clean up the leaves, twigs and other debris that have gathered over the winter..
4. Spring Cleaning Decluttering makes you more efficient and keeps you organized. But more than that, clutter has psychological influences. It signals to your brain that work isn’t done.

Buying a Home With No Money Down Using USDA Loan What are the basic guidelines for USDA loans?
USDA does not 'approve' homes. Rather, the property in question must be eligible for USDA financing. To be eligible for USDA financing, homes must be located in 'rural' areas. By definition, the usually means an area with less dense population ( However, there are exceptions to the rule).
How can I get a list of eligible USDA homes?
There are two types of properties. Homes that were foreclosed upon the USDA rural development department and, properties that are located inside an eligible area that are approved for financing.
Give me a call for an updated list of USDA Eligible Homes.
