Your Dream FROG Can Add Space and Value to Your Home

Your Dream FROG Can Add Space and Value to Your Home
Instead of just a place to store stuff (and maybe to accommodate your car), your garage may also be a moneymaker. If you’re fortunate enough to have a FROG over your garage, you may be missing out on something. Your finished room over garage (or FROG) could be the perfect spot for a game room, kids’ play spot, or best of all (financially speaking), a rental property. FROGS and bonus rooms are widely popular with buyers these days. And while it certainly hasn’t reached the stage where you won’t be able to sell your home without a FROG, you will add value and may be able to get a hi... Read More

Ask Your Agent: I plan to list in the spring; what can I do now to prepare?

Ask Your Agent: I plan to list in the spring; what can I do now to prepare?
The post-holiday lull is a great time to catch up on all those projects you’ve been meaning to complete. As you know, buyers are getting more exacting about the features they want in a home. On the other hand, you may not want to spend too much money upgrading your property. You’ve heard it before, but it’s true: paint makes the biggest difference for the lowest cost. Neutrals are always right, but why not give your space some zip with a feature wall in an up-to-date color? If you’re handy, tackle some of those repairs you’ve put off. Gouges in walls, loose (or missing) cabinet doo... Read More

Builders Tweaking Retirement Communities for Boomers More baby boomers are reaching retirement age and, as one might expect, they’re not content to settle for their parents’ retirement; boomers are instead looking for retirement communities that will cater to their active lifestyles and foster their sense of community. Developers are noticing this shift and tweaking their communities to better suit the needs of boomers, who now number some 75 million individuals—currently representing one-quarter of the U.S. population and exceeded only by millennials.

Tellico Village Wondrous Watchable Wildlife – The Great Blue Heron

Tellico Village Wondrous Watchable Wildlife – The Great Blue Heron
Living in Tellico Village and Rarity Bay, has its perks! I feel privileged to live in Tellico Village (29 miles SW Knoxville, East Tennessee), to live among the Great Blue Heron.  You see, I am a beginning birder, and find the Blue Heron fascinating to watch.  Common to Tellico Lake, they are very impressive and intriguing to watch……the way they stand still in shallow water to prey upon fish and to observe their massive 6 to 7-foot wing span, while in flight. The Great Blue Heron, is the largest and most familiar bird in Tennessee.  They are a year round resident, and mistakab... Read More
