If it is really thick weeds try Round Up and then reseed the lawn. If it isn't that thick, I think that Scotts lawn fertilizers are great.
Make sure you apply the weed control fertilizer while the lawn is damp so that the granules stick to the leaves.... more
I completely agree! Curb appeal is very important. A lot of buyers drive by before making an appointment to see the home. If they don't like how the home looks from the outside, they will never step inside. Since there are tenants there who might not take care of any landscaping, I would highly recommend the seller hire someone temporarily to maintain it while it is active. These are the little things that really matter when it comes to selling a home. It will pay off in the long run for the seller.... more
Curb appeal is of prime importance as this is the first impression that buyers see. Many agents suggest to their buyer clients to drive by the property first to determine if the property is worth considering. If the yard looks unkempt or the outside of the home looks to need repairs then the buyer may walk away thinking that the interior is in the same condition. First impressions are very important so sellers should make the outside of the property as attractive and appealing as possible.

It really depends on what neighboring homes have. My first impression would be to take it down. If it's rusted getting it cleaned up to accept paint would be a major undertaking. Having your property look as appealing as possible will give you the best results.... more
It depends on the quality of your work and how quickly you would be available. I usually take photos myself just because I want them done "yesterday" and I also know how to capture the essence of a house, even if it is in bad condition or just plain ugly.
Hence the two most important factors are being available right away to visit the property and knowing how to tell the story of a home through photos and/or video. I will also say that many homes in Brooklyn are not conducive to videos because the rooms are too small and they do not look good on video.
As far as the price, if your just starting out, you may have to discount a little to attract business, Once your up and running you can tweak it from there. Here's an idea, offer the first one as a "freebie" and then charge for future ones if they want more. Good luck!

To be honest I've never heard if any proof that such a measure would reduce value. If the entire community has the stenciled numbers than all homes will follow the same conformity and appeal. In fact, this is customary in many townships regardless of design. Good luck, and if you ever want to discuss values of your home please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

That answer truly varies on how much water you use and what city you are in. For example, there are 4 in our house hold with large yards and live in Mesa. Our average water bill is around $130 a month. What city are you located in?... more
Marion - you might want to call a few different companies that offer concrete stamping. You would receive a similar effect to pavers without the risk of them not holding up to the steep incline; also, the process is generally less expensive. Usually they are able to repair the cracking that exists and lay a thin layer on top. They then can add color and "stamp" patterns into the concrete.

That depends on many factors. Metal roofs are considered some of the best out there, but appearance is also a factor. Find a local Realtor to advise you by clicking Find a Pro in the header of this website. http://www.naplesrealestateguys.com... more

Slate flooring in the master bedroom I would not recommend would place hardwood floors
Updating your house will always bring it current when HGTV is watched or in magazine that is what the public sees all the time, going thru homes not updated turns off buyers
IF the labor IS YOU ! I say go for it..... the materials if purchased as closes outs are inexpensive it is always the labor which is the killer
