New Homeowner To-Do List - Haring Realty

It doesn't take long after the ink dries on the paperwork that your thoughts will turn toward all the things you have to do when you move into your new home. Our REALTORS® know you'll have a lot on your mind, and this simple list can help you stay focused on some of the things you need to do.

  1. Dust Off the Dust Mop
    It's a good idea to pack your cleaning supplies at the back of your moving truck. This will make it easier to get to the mops, brooms, trash bags, etc., you'll want to use before you move in. Cleaning an empty house is a lot easier before you start unpacking.

Buying an Older Home - Haring Realty

When that fabulous old house on the hill looms large in your thoughts, it's easy to get swept up in the nostalgia of the past. Whether it's memories of your youth or a longing for the days of yore, it's important to know what you could be getting into. While old houses most certainly have their charms, our REALTORS® know that it's important to look for warts, as well. That said, owning an older home is most certainly rewarding if you are willing to put in the work and resources required to maintain it.

  • Buying Older Homes in the Region
    There are many Mansfield and Ashland homes for sale that date back to the late 1800s. These old homes were built with hand tools, solid wood, and stone. They were built to last, and many have made their way into the present day.

    As the years have passed, styles evolved, materials advanced, and lifestyles changed. This means when you buy an older home, you're likely to find many different eras represented within the rooms and behind the walls. You may find solid wood floors from the 1900s covered by linoleum from the 1950s. Sometimes, these are pleasant surprises that, with a little TLC and creativity, can significantly boost the ambiance and appearance of the home.

Consider the Garage - Buy a Home - Haring Realty

While most homebuyers consider a garage a necessary or important home feature, many buyers overlook potential problems that may be lurking in the space. If you're looking around at Ohio homes for sale, our REALTORS® at Haring Realty can help you find a beautiful home with a two-car garage that's in great shape.

A garage is an asset to any home because it can serve many purposes. As a utilitarian space, its primary purpose is storage and protection for your car, which is a big expense. However, a garage can also provide a large amount of storage space for a washer and dryer, lawn care equipment, tools, household items, and clothing. Most homeowners with a two-car attached garage use the space for much more than storing vehicles.

Although your garage is separated from your living spaces in Mansfield or Ashland homes for sale, it's still space with structural components that need attention. Your garage can reveal telltale signs of damage that can have a significant impact on a home's investment. To avoid problems and expensive repairs, pay attention to your garage.
