Design your home BEFORE you move in!

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.

Imagine you're about to close on your new house, and in a few weeks you'll be moving in. You undoubtedly have thought about where to put your stuff - will the sofa fit the living room? Will the dining table be too big? Too small? Or is it time to replace it? Wouldn't it be great if there were a way to plan every aspect of your move before it happens?
There is. The process is called Move Management and some interior designers offer it as part of their services. Interior designers do a lot of things behind the scenes. Most clients never consider these services until they experience the benefits they provide. Furniture and space planning are some of those services.
Simone Eisold, an interior designer in the Hudson Valley offers Move Management and organizes client spaces for a move. She explains, "What you do with your space and how you arrange your things is incredibly important, especially when mo ...

Seven ways Hudson Valley home sellers find out that hindsight's a bitch.

So many times I see sellers trying to squeeze every penny out of the sale of their house but end up shortchanging themselves. Here are seven such circumstances that can be eliminated with a little foresight:

1. Cheaping out on remodeling.
Inferior finishes or cheap solutions to home decorating problems always come back to haunt sellers. Guilty parties include cheap laminate flooring, paint on grainy un-prepared surfaces, "faux" granite counter tops and Ikea kitchens. None will improve the selling price, and all will be seen by buyers as something they'll have to replace or re-do anyway. 

2. Ignoring older systems.
Be it a struggling HVAC system, a saggy roof or a water heater as old as your youngest child, a seller will have to deal with these issues in one of three ways. They will receive no offers, they will receive offers reflective of these items that need to be replaced, or once the home inspection happens, the buyer will want to renegotiate the entire transaction. ...

New in town? Get to know who lives in your neigborhood on Nextdoor.com.

Anybody buying or selling a house means they're moving to somewhere else. That means they'll likely be finding new places to eat, shop, drive and play. It also means (dramatic music here) NEW NEIGHBORS! So what better thing to do to get connected than use a new social media network called Nextdoor. This community networking site already has groups in 176,000 neighborhoods, or over 83% of the neighborhoods in America. 

On Nextdoor, neighbors can find and offer help for all kinds of odd jobs (like hanging Christmas lights or clearing up after a storm), sell or give away unwanted items, or get help with projects that need a little extra muscle (draining a flooded basement) or brain-power (installing a new computer) As they suggest on their website, "find a last-minute babysitter, plan a local event, or share safety tips." It even comes in handy when you just want to meet some of your neighbors.

Joining is easy on their website. Just register with your address and email and yo ...

Clean your cans, man!

A new service offered in Rockland County promises to clean up where no man has gone before; your trash can! Smelly, sloppy garbage and trash dumpster bins can be a thing of the past with services from Mister Can TM Trash Bin Cleaning. 

The service offers to scrub and sanitize any number of trash bins using a custom designed state-of-the-art truck, pressure washing the cans with 200° hot water at a 360° angle. The process is said to  eliminate 99.9% of harmful germs and bacteria. After the cans are cleaned and sanitized, Mr. Can will deodorize and disinfect them inside and out, leaving your cans smelling fresh, clean and spotless. Mr. Can uses eco-friendly cleaning products, and all water used in the process is self-contained and remains in the truck until it is environmentally disposed of.

The service is available for residential or commercially located trash cans, for cleaning on a bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly or one-time plan. 

For homeowners moving ...
