Light The Way To A Successful Sale!


When presenting your home for sale, the value of curb appeal can’t be emphasized enough. Here are some ways to shine a light on your selling opportunity.

  • Illuminated address sign. Make your address easy to find with an illuminated address sign or at least a spotlight shining on your house number. This is a great idea even if you’re not selling your home, as it allows everyone, from the pizza delivery person to emergency first responders, to find you quickly and easily.
  • A well-lit path. Once the potential buyer finds your house, make sure their trip to the front door is clear and well lit. This is an attractive feature that also doubles as a safety measure for both you and your visitors, who need a clear view and safe access to your home’s entrance.
  • Highlighted landscaping. A lot of time and money goes into creating a beautiful lawn and garden. Consider how to best highlight your outdoor efforts using uplights to illuminate trees from below, and quality solar lights to cast a magical glow to the garden.

In many cases, the evening hours are the only time available for potential buyers to view your property. Make sure you present your home in the best possible light with attractive path, patio and landscape lighting systems, no matter what time of day it is!

Amazing Ways to Use Tile at Home

These various types of tiling will help you spruce up & enhance the look of your home!

Many people think of tile as a useful and decorative material to use in bathrooms or as kitchen backsplashes. But you can use tile in so many additional ways. Here are some quick ideas to help you enhance the look of your home using various types of tile.

#1 Wall Tiles

The beauty of tiled walls can transform the look of any room. Although you might be accustomed to seeing tile in bathrooms and kitchens, you can also add sections of wall tiling to other rooms in your home. Tile in your laundry room, foyer or den will make a bold decorative statement. Tile is also easy to clean and maintain. Consider installing a wall of high-end glass tiles in your living room or dining room to achieve a visually stunning space.


#2 Ceiling Tiles
Ceiling tiles have long been used for decorative purposes in homes and buildings. You can outfit a room of your house with retro- or vintage-inspired tiles to create a decoratively pleasing space. You can choose from tin ceiling tiles, vinyl ceiling tiles and even ceramic ceiling tiles. Consider installing contrasting ceiling and wall tiles to create a unique décor plan.

#3 Tile Fireplace
You can give your fireplace a brand new look by adding tiling. Add a contemporary touch to your living room or den with a brightly tiled fireplace. You can choose patterned tiles or tiles that boast a versatile shade. The easy-to-clean nature of tile means you can keep your fireplace looking fresh all year long.

#4 Floor Tiles
If you’re looking for durable flooring that brims with eye-catching appeal, tile is a first-rate option. You can tile part of a floor so that it blends nicely with other flooring materials like bamboo or hardwood. You can also rim your floor with a tile border to create an enclosed look for your space. Of course, tile’s moisture resistance makes it an ideal flooring solution for bathrooms, laundry rooms and kitchens.

#5 Mosaic Tiling
Mosaic tiling is an ancient decorative practice that is still popular today. You can add a mosaic to many features of your home. Consider adding mosaic tiling around your bathtub to achieve a one-of-a-kind look. You can add a mosaic to the floors near your home’s entryways, as a kitchen backsplash or even your bed’s headboard.


#6 Patio Ideas
Even if your patio is designed with brick or concrete, you can enhance its looks by adding an elegant tiled feature like a small basin or tiled pool. You can also pave pockets of your patio with tiling to create a more pleasing look for your outdoor living space. If you have an outdoor kitchen, you can cover your prepping and cooking stations with tile as well.

Tile is a truly versatile material that brims with decorative appeal. Carefully assess your home to decide where you can makeover a space with tile. Most home improvement centers or online stores will have a wide variety of tiling to choose from.

What Will You Need For Retirement?

Retirement Living:  Here are some Things to Consider When Looking To Move

Are you getting Tired of all the upkeep with maintaining a home? Here are some things to consider if you are thinking about going to a Retirement Home..

1. Know ahead of time what your needs will be.

There are lots of choices when it comes to finding a retirement home if funds are not an issue, but it can be quite pricey especially if there are two of you. Not all retirement homes are able to handle different stages of illness.  Do some research ahead of time. The waiting list can be very long for some retirement and especially good nursing homes. If there is a specific nursing home you would like to end up in, make sure you get your name on that nursing home list now, before you need it.

2. Bring someone you trust with you.

When viewing retirement homes or future nursing homes, bring someone you trust with you. They may have a different perspective of your present and future needs. They can also help you remember what each home has to offer.  Bring a clip board with you, take lots of notes and pictures to help you remember the different options the home offers and where they are in location to your support system.

3. Review the Room and Dining Areas.

Make sure you are able to control your own temperature. Look at the amenities they offer you such as Cable TV, Telephone, Kitchenette, laundry services and nursing care if required.

 4. Check-out what activities they home offers.

Each home will have a monthly activity calendar. Check them out to see how many interest you. If there are none, you can ask that they start a particular activity. Who knows, there may be other residents who have similar interests to you. Talk to other residents already living in the home. Ask them if they are happy with their choice.

5.  Attend some activity sessions before you commit.

Be sure to visit the retirement homes when an activity or two is taking place, and use this opportunity to see how many residents attend.  Look and ask other residents if they enjoy themselves. If possible, eat a meal at the residence and ask plenty of questions about the meal plans, how they are delivered and how menu changes are handled.

6. Look around your surroundings

Take a close look at the building and the grounds when taking your tour. Make sure the building is being maintained and there are no safety hazards.  Is the ground maintained and inviting. Another consideration, are you seeing enough staff such as care givers, kitchen and cleaning for the size of the facility.

7. Carefully review your present and future care needs.

Personal care is expensive and one that needs to be looked at very carefully such as nail care and hair dressing. You’ll want to ensure its services grow with your future needs. Ask about 24-hour medical care and how emergencies are handled. Is there a doctor on call or who does regular visits? What about bathing and dressing assistance?

Though it may be hard to leave the family home behind, selling your home and moving to a retirement home can open up a whole new world of independent living — just give yourself plenty of time to make a the right decision, so begin searching really early, before you need it. Its helps your care givers if they know your wishes ahead of time. That way, when the time is right, you can make a smooth transition to the next chapter of your life!

Just remember  the future is never certain, the Mash Team can help, so keep in touch.
