Best Wishes This Holiday Season

Best Wishes from the team at Jennifer Westmoreland & Associates

Sleepy Puppy Best wishes for a warm and relaxing holiday season. We are so grateful for each of our clients, and appreciate your support in 2017. We look forward to serving you and your family and friends in 2018 and beyond! Do you have special holiday traditions? We love viewing holiday lights! Here’s a blog post from Explore Georgia with 10 top holiday light displays in Georgia. How many have you seen?

We have some exciting events coming up in 2018, but there is still time in 2017 to help those in need in our community. Team JWA 2018 Dog Calendars are available for only $15 each, with all proceeds benefiting the Athens Area Humane Society! These would make fantastic stocking stuffers.

We were also happy to provide gifts to the Santa for a Senior program at the Athens Community Council on Aging, and are currently collecting pet food donations for the Meals on Wheels for Pets “Will’s Pet Pantry”. For each pound of pet food donated in December, Team JWA will match your donation pound for pound! You can drop off donations at our office, or directly at the ACCA. Learn more about how you can help at our JWA blog. Thank you, and we hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

8 Ways to Get Your Home in Shape for Showing

8 Ways to Get Your Home in Shape for Showing

8 simple steps you can take to ensure your home is in “show shape”

Information via KW

Homes that have been well-maintained and convey pride of ownership appeal to perceptive, motivated buyers. Below are some simple steps you can take for your home in the greater Athens area to ensure your home is in “show shape” when you are ready to sell.



  1. Clean or replace carpets and/or other flooring, such as vinyl or hardwoods.
  2. Wash the windows and window coverings.
  3. Clean the kitchen and baths until they sparkle.
  4. Clear and pack away clutter and sell or store excess furniture.
  5. Clean your closets–extra storage space helps sell homes.
  6. Paint or touch up any rooms that need it. Use neutral colors, which have more universal appeal.
  7. Take down family pictures and other personal decorations. The more your house looks like your home, the harder it is for buyers to imagine themselves living there.
  8. Clean the basement and garage. Neatly stack and store boxes.

Your home’s cleanliness and appeal create an unconscious impression. That impression can determine the likelihood of an offer.  I’d be happy to stop by and offer you specific suggestions to help you stage your home for sale. This is the time for minor adjustments, not a major remodel. Please give me a call or submit a request for contact with any questions. Perhaps I can save you some time and/or money.
