Two Tips For Landscaping and Your Dog in the Greater Athens Area

Here are two tips to help you keep your landscape looking top shape for you and your best friend (information and photo via Keller Williams)

1. Set Some Boundaries: Even the smartest pooch in the pack can have a hard time telling which areas of the yard are off limits. Your flower bed or vegetable garden can easily look like fair game, so adding permanent or temporary barriers to these areas may be the best way to keep the peace between you and your pet.

2. Hate those Brown Spots? Watering regularly and keeping your grass a little longer than is typical can help reduce the appearance of brown spots in your grass, but it won’t solve the problem entirely. If you can’t live with the burn marks that come from the nitrogen found in your dog’s urine, consider creating a new special place for your dog to eliminate. A fenced off area or a section of the yard with some gravel that can be easily sprayed down from time to time are great options.

Potential Home Improvement Projects for Home Resale

Which projects might be the best to complete when thinking about home resale?

Information via Brandon McEachern with Jennifer Westmoreland & Associates

As usual, the kitchen is the focal point on interior value.  From there, it’s the bathrooms and wood floors (instead of carpet) which boost your return.  But what folks may be missing is what I call the “big ticket items”.  Buyers are savvy when it comes to research these days.  And when they get the Seller’s Disclosure, they’re looking for these important factors:  The age of the roof, HVAC system and water heater.  So if you have a 30-year roof, and it’s 27 years old, replacing it is a tremendous selling point that may give you the edge over the competition.  The same goes for the other components I mentioned.  The good thing is that you can likely get the value back out of these upgrades.  Let’s face it: buyers will spend their budget on the purchase…and rarely have additional money set aside to replace the roof, HVAC, water heater, etc.  So check up on the ages of these systems.  If they’re near the end of their shelf-life, you may seriously want to consider replacement prior to listing.  If all of them are in great shape, then go ahead and splurge on that big kitchen renovation.
