It's Showtime! What To Do and What Not To Do

The sign is up and you are ready to show your home off! In any market, a hot one or not, you need to have your house prepared to show as soon as you are live! What should you do and not do for a showing?

Upgrades and Repairs:

If your home has undergone some major changes since you purchased your home, you may want to list these out. Many people will never even look at these but if they are interested they will. Upgrading your brass knobs on your kitchen is not a big deal to the buyer,but a new furnace, hot water heater or brand new roof is. Any transferable warranty should also be noted.

The list doesn't have to be long as I've stated, most people will not even notice it unless they do and if they do, they are not going to read a long list. A simple record is fine. If a professional was called in to do work, show receipts.

Find a Pool: One Preferably in the Shade

Having a pool to dip into is great but having one in the shade is even better. Many neighborhood pools are open to the elements but there are a couple that have nice shady areas. Although you must be a member of these pools, Williamsburg Community and Indigo Park pools are shady when you need them to be and allow sunshine when you are in need of a tan. Water Country USA is also open to the public from May 18th until September 2. Enjoy the large shade areas the park offers and cool off in one of the twelve rides. We love Aquazoid and The Wild Thang.

Grab Lunch and Movie at Movie Tavern at High Street

Enjoy great food and a movie inside the Movie Tavern at High Street. See a new release or enjoy Retro Movie nights on Tuesday, Wendsday and Thursday. Think outside of the popcorn box and sink your teeth into the Margharita Pizza with a homemade, thin crust that is to die for. The Game Day Platter is great to share with the little ones or just the two of you. With a vast kids menu sure to please any picky eater, you are rest assured they will enjoy the food too. Why not have a beer or a glass of wine either? You deserve it!



See Jamestown Settlement

Jamestown Settlement is a great adventure. This is where America's First Permanent Colony is! You are where is began for The United States of America. Why not check it out? Inside is an expansive gallery of artifacts, learning fun a films gauranteed to keep the entire family happy. You can also trek outside and board three replica ships that sailed from England to Virginia in 1607. You can also see how the Powhatan Indians lived in recreated village and how the English survived in a replica fort. Make sure you are dressed cooly for these exhibits and carry a water bottle with you. Beware of a large boom that may startle you, I'll leave it at that.

Get a Mani-Pedi

Relax inside and scrub away rough feet and callasus. We are loving french tip and black at the moment for colors. Enjoy the massage chair and don't forget if the chair stops, you can always get it started again. After your feet are done, daydream while your nails are buffed and shined. A clear coat is perfect for summer or try a daring neon!

sun tea

Make Sun Tea!

When the sun is beating down and even the thought of boiling water makes you sweat, consider making sun tea. This popular summertime brewing practice involves using the sun's energy to make tea, rather than relying on electricity or gas. Follow these easy steps here.

Enjoy the heat though because before we know it you will have to wear a winter coat again!
