Flickr Foto Fun Friday Post – First Day of Spring!

Yeah!  It’s the 1st day of SPRING and Mother Nature has a sense of humor!  Today in New Fairfield, CT – we had chilly temperatures and snow – yes, I said SNOW – that was sticking to the ground!  Then, the sun came out and melted all the little flakes that had fallen for the past 2 hours.  And now, more clouds have rolled in and a light breeze has started.   


Even so, I am thrilled that today – Friday, March 20th – it is officially the FIRST DAY OF SPRING! 

Here are some SPRINGY  Flickr Pics of what we shall soon see – really soon I hope!

While House Hunting, Stop & Smell the Flowers

With Homes For Sale’s inventory being high and interest rates lowWHAT A PERFECT TIME TO BUY!  With so many homes currently on the market, you can start in the morning and end in the evening, viewing home after home in different neighborhoods – towns and states!


If your out viewing homes, please make time to take in as much as you can.  Take notes on EVERYTHING, including the pluses AND minuses of each home.  With the  sellers permission, you may also be able to take your own photos or video.  Since many homes have little or no interior pics, I have taken my own footage to send to my clients via e-mail so they could share desired homes with family members and friends. 


With homes that my buyers are considering to purchase, these photos will help them with ideas of where to place furniture, color schemes and even help answer questions like, “How many window were there in the master bedroom?”.  Couples often argue over whether or not there was a fireplace in the living room!    

Also,  with now being Spring, maybe take the time to smell the flowers along the way!

Gardening with HGTV

It’s time to start gardening and my mother has reminded me MANY times.  I just called home and she said she took a lot of my plants that were out-growing their pots and gave them new larger homes.  Oh My!  I’m sitting here wondering what pots and from where?

I could have avoided this – except I’m Plant and Flower challenged!  At home I can cook, bake, clean up a storm, tend to my 5 kids, talk on the phone with clients and e-mail listings – all at the same time!  But planting… I’m so bad – and I’m sure I’m not alone!  But Thank Goodness for so many sites on line to help.

A great one is HGTV’s Gardening.  Under THIS WEEK – there is an “Advice for the All-Thumbs Gardener” site.  Check it out – especially if you have or are going to have your home on the market.  Remember “FIRST IMPRESSIONS”  are important.

Please contact me if you need any assistance in Real Estate – and if you have any luck with gardening, I’ll be asking you for help!
