Going green is the best way to keep some green in your wallet this year. If you're searching for ways you can reduce your environmental footprint, protect the ecosystem, and save money at the same time, then the following are five home features our REALTORS® recommend taking a look at as you consider upgrades for your home.
It's the season to keep an eagle-eye on the weather forecast and wonder if you can wear more than one sweater at a time. As fall turns to winter, the environmentally-conscious and budget-minded alike start thinking about energy efficiency. And our REALTORS® regularly encounter homebuyers concerned about heating efficiency in the homes they view during the colder months. Whether you're looking to sell your home or stay comfortable in the one you have, a few hints on smart heating use will save you money and make those chilly winter nights a little cozier.
Do you dream of buying one of our local Mansfield homes for sale, but think there's no viable way to afford it? Think again! 2019 can be your year to purchase a house! Gathering the right information, taking advantage of multiple resources and making friends with your budget are the critical ingredients for taking that life-changing step. With a bit of planning and effort before you begin searching, buying a home may not be easier than you ever imagined.
It's tax time again. Although many people dread filing their taxes, receiving a refund makes it a little more bearable. A great use for that extra money is updating your home. If you're staying in your home for the foreseeable future, there are many upgrades that can make your life easier and your home more aesthetically pleasing. But if you're looking to add your house to the current list of Mansfield homes for sale, you'll probably want to make some updates that will appeal to buyers and add value to your home. Our REALTORS® definitely know what makes a good impression on buyers and using your tax refund for one or more of these updates can help get your house sold.
