Incorporating smart home tech into your new home enhances the value and comfort of that investment. Our REALTORS® keep a keen eye on the future of smart technology and highly recommend the following features and systems that will make maintaining, protecting, and enjoying your home a little bit easier.

  • Smart Lighting Lights Up Your Life
    Smart lighting is easy to install and can significantly improve both security and comfort. Smart lighting systems allow you to control everything from brightness to color.

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.

Pest Control Tips for Homeowners - Haring Realty

We're all thrilled when the winter storms are gone and it's time for the spring thaw. But with that warmer weather comes a multitude of pests, both in our yards and sometimes our homes. 

To prevent pests in the house you've chosen among Mansfield and Ashland homes for sale, follow the tips below.

Keeping Pests Out of Your Home

Not surprisingly, most of the pests homeowners in our area are quite common, rather than some of the newer, exotic species that have just begun invading the South and the West, such as certain species of exotic ants and mosquitoes. Here are some of the main ones to be on the watch for.

  1. Mosquitoes
    There are several species of mosquitoes in our region, and like anywhere, they are mainly a problem during warm, rainy weather. The best preventative is not allowing stagnant water to collect in containers, birdbaths, or ponds. Water in a pond or birdbath is fine as long as it's being aerated or changed frequently. Remove old flower pots or containers and store them away. Cut back on dense foliage, where mosquitoes like to hover during the heat of the day. If you decide to spray, talk to your pest control specialist about measures that won't kill beneficial insects such as butterflies and other pollinators.

Backyard Astronomy - Mansfield, OH - Haring Realty

It's not so easy to travel across borders right now. But that doesn't mean you can't take a trip that's out of this world without ever leaving the comfort of your back yard. If you're getting a little stir crazy, our REALTORS® suggest you set your sights on the night sky to see the show the masters of the universe are putting on. One glance at the heavens is all it takes to get hooked on a hobby that can educate and entertain for decades to come.

  • Get Started with an App
    There are many free apps you can download to your smartphone. One of the best is Star Walk. The app features augmented reality, event notification, and the opportunity to track both the ISS and deep sky objects. All you need to get started is a reliable phone and a decent pair of binoculars. It is a fabulous way to learn more about the stars and develop a deeper understanding of what you discover.

6 Things That Could Decrease Property Value - Haring Realty

Your home is as much an investment in your comfort as it is your financial future. Over the years, you'll make changes and alterations to your home that reflect your tastes and interests. However, our REALTORS® have seen time and time again situations where homeowners have gotten a little too comfortable. And, in the process, decreased the curb appeal and market value of their home. As you consider all the changes and alterations you can make, the following are six we strongly advise against.

  1. Skipping Quality Paint
    Saving money on the interior and exterior paint is penny wise but pound foolish. You will save money when you buy it, and you'll save even more money when you paint the walls yourself. However, low-quality paint doesn't last as long as more expensive options. And a professional installer will make sure the coats are even and that the finished paint job both protects your home and creates a durable, long-lasting finish that won't peel, fade, or fall away.

Pre-Approval Process - Buy a Home - Haring Realty

Our REALTORS® at Haring Realty strive to make homebuying easier. When looking at Mansfield and Ashland homes for sale, clients often have lots of questions. It's no surprise concerns around financing are common. That's not just true for first-time homebuyers, either: Whether they're buying a first place or a place to retire, everyone wants the best deal.

But the process of getting a mortgage can be complex. It's easy to get confused, which is one reason why the right real estate pro is such a valuable ally. One question that often doesn't get asked – because buyers don't have all the information at first – is this: "How does pre-approval affect my home search?"

Pre-approval can have a positive impact on your finances and the whole buying process.

Here's what to know.

Home Valuation - Haring Realty

Pricing your home correctly is one of the biggest keys to attracting a robust pool of potential buyers, but the pricing process feels like one big mystery for many sellers. The good news is that it definitely doesn't have to be! While the pricing process can be complex, every good real estate agent follows a similar process to determine a home's value. Understanding what does – and what doesn't – factor into a home valuation will help you get a better grip on how much to expect when you sell. Our REALTORS® are here to help remove the mystery from the home valuation process.

  • It All Starts with a CMA
    When determining the value of your home, your agent will start with a comparative market analysis (CMA) to compare your home with other, similar properties in your area. A CMA looks at the comparable homes that are currently on sale, those that have already sold recently, and homes that were listed but didn't sell. With a CMA in hand, you'll have a much deeper understanding of how your home fits within your local real estate market, whether you're competing with other Mansfield homes for sale or listing in any other community.

Colors of the Year - Homeowners - Haring Realty

Major paint companies and color experts have once again announced their colors of the year. They're expected to be the top shades in design, and many reflect what we're looking for in the new year. Some are vibrantly optimistic, while others are soothing.
The following are some 2021 colors of the year, and our REALTORS® suggest ways you can incorporate them into your home.  

  • HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams – Passionate HGSW2032  
    The color palette for 2021 will be all about vibrant colors, according to Sherwin-Williams. The company's Passionate HGSW2032, a rich, bold red, is its 2021 color of the year. It can create a backdrop for neutral furniture paired with accents inspired by nature. Or pair it with a vivid blue or green for a more vibrant look.
