Welcome Home, Honey! How to Feng Shui Your Decor for Love

Feng shui, as you may have heard, teaches you how to arrange your home furnishings for maximum harmony. But there’s another perk to this ancient Chinese philosophy: It can be harnessed to improve your relationships, too.

“Feng shui in your home affects how you connect in existing relationships, or—if you’re single—your openness to meeting new potential partners,” explains Anjie Cho, an architect, feng shui expert, and author of “Holistic Spaces: 108 Ways to Create a Mindful and Peaceful Home.”

So if you’re hoping for some more lovin’ feelings in your future, here’s how feng shui can help make that happen.

Open the Bedroom

Arranging your bedroom is key, of course—and you can start as Cho has by moving your bed away from the walls. True, you may want your bed’s headboard against one wall, but at least make sure both sides of the bed are clear so they are as open and accessible as possible.

“This simple shift opened up the space both emotionally and physically so I could invite a new partner into my life,” Cho explains.

And don’t forget art in this room. “Hang pictures that represent what you want—so no frozen tundra or desert images here,” adds Kim Julen, a feng shui coach.

Ping Deters, a certified feng shui consultant, suggests a picture with two objects, such as Mandarin ducks. “This symbol is popular because these ducks are known to mate for life,” she explains.

Match the bedside tables

Equality matters when it comes to feng shui—and this includes bedside tables. Be sure your boudoir has two nightstands with matching lamps on top.

“If there isn’t room for two, then no nightstands should be used, because having only one creates an imbalance in the relationship,” reports Julen.

Pick up your stuff

Clutter is feng shui’s enemy, say the experts. If you have too much stuff, you can’t welcome your partner properly, confirms Cho.

Take out anything that makes you think of people from your past, offers Trisha Keel, a feng shui educator.

Decorate your foyer mindfully

A neat mudroom or foyer sets a welcoming atmosphere for all the inhabitants of a home—and making this space more personal can set the right tone for once you both get home.

“Adding art or physical objects that both partners love at the entry point is helpful for harmony,” says Julen. You might consider a photo you both admire or a souvenir from a recent trip taken together.

Empty a couple of drawers

If you’re looking for a new mate, good feng shui dictates that you clear out part of your closets and drawers to make mental room for them, says Keel.

“And if you’re newly married or have recently moved in together, it’s recommended that you perform a major clearing to delete any vibrations from previous relationships,” she adds. (Translation: Consider repainting the room a new color, or replacing old rugs or linens so you can make a fresh start.)

Get cookin’ in the kitchen

Guess which body part represents romance in feng shui? No, not the heart, but the stomach. As such, “it’s vital that the kitchen be used and that couples spend time here cooking, because a cold kitchen is like a cold heart,” notes Katie Weber, a feng shui practitioner and creator of Red Lotus newsletter.

You should also nurture your union with a stocked freezer and a bowl of fresh fruit.

“All people eat and if they don’t eat at home, they’ll eat out—the same goes for getting love,” warns Keel.

Set your partner a place

It seems like a small gesture, but setting the table correctly can set the stage for love, say feng shui experts.

“A place mat for you and your partner—whether you have one or would like one—shows that you honor his or her presence,” explains Julen.

Lay in bathroom supplies

Outfit your loo so your partner doesn’t have to search for the TP. Baskets for laundry, plenty of paper goods, and a trash can are musts.

If you have two sinks, make sure the mirror is one piece of glass above them, as separate mirrors bring a disconnect to the relationship, points out Julen. And while you may feel very close to your lover, respect each other’s privacy for the most harmony.

Add the fire element

Encourage love by highlighting the fire element with shades of red in your furnishings. Is a fire engine–red couch too much? Start small, like with throw pillows. Or else add the actual element of fire by lighting a candle.

Tackle the garage

Yes, even your garage could improve your relationship if you try a little feng shui! For one, not everyone can conjure up a two-car garage out of a single bay, but if you have space for two vehicles, make enough room for your partner to park, notes Keel.

“If this is your garage and it’s packed with your junk, your new love may feel ignored or disrespected,” she says.

7 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

The Holidays have come and passed, and chances are you’re thinking of those New Year’s Resolutions. If you want to finish them early in the new year, it’s best to get a head start. Check out seven resolutions to get started on now!

Declutter

downloadA popular resolution, centered around getting your home in order. But, when it becomes a challenge it may fall to the wayside. To keep  yourself on track, get started now. Schedule time for this task just like you would any other. Plan to declutter, even if you can only block out twenty minutes for the task, do it! This will help make it feel less daunting, you don’t have to complete it all in one day!

Planning a room renovation

You may not have had the time –or money– to renovate a room this year. But next year, may be just the right time for a freshen up. If you’re thinking about it, start planning, budgeting, and scheduling contractors now. Often times electricians, plumbers, or other licensed contractors can become heavily booked, it’s a good idea to reach out a few months in advance.

Putting holiday decorations away early

Do you choose to leave your decorations up a little longer after Christmas? That’s totally fine, this can allow your family to enjoy the holidays a while longer. Professionals suggest that when you do decide to start taking down the decorations, look at what you have and what you plan to buy. Make sure you have the right size containers for your decorations and a good place to put them, this can make the task a little easier.

Tackling Little Projects

You know that little list you’re always adding to? Have you ever considering putting it all on your resolution list? You may find that the little tasks you consistently ignore or keep adding to really aren’t that difficult and that you may be able to tackle them all at once and mark them off for good! So, get to hanging those photos, clearing the gutters, patching the holes in the walls, or installing that ceiling fan. Mark them off!

Organizing a specific space

Narrowing your organizational resolution to a particular problem in your house may be a more achievable goal. Master closet, home office or garage sound familiar? You want to create a better system in the space but follow these few steps before running out to get those fancy bins and storage containers.

  • Focus on the function of the bins and containers rather than how they look
  • Look at what you’re keeping in the room, what will stay and what will go?
  • Measure and establish a plan for the best way to maximum your space for functionality and organization

Preparing your house to sell

You’ve decided that 2019 will be the year that you decide to sell, but don’t wait until the New Year comes. Contact a real estate agent to go over just what needs to happen to your home before you list it- whether it’s refinishing the floors or finishing the paint job you started last month. Often the number of listings continue to rise after the first of the year, so the sooner you list–the less competition you’ll have. Any of the professional REALTORS at Greenbrier Real Estate Service can you help you with the listing and consultation process.

Advice for People Putting a Home on the Market in the Winter

christmas home house light
Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

The internet is rife with real estate advice, some of it true and a lot of it false. One idea that tends to pop up is that summer is the best time of year to list a home for sale. This is largely based on data collected by online real estate database company Zillow from 24 large real estate markets in the United States, and while that is a decent representation, it’s not at all definitive. The truth is, there is no “best time” to sell a property — there are pros and cons to every season. While putting your home on the market in the winter may present some challenges, with the right preparations you can sell your house faster and for more money.

Price it Right
You don’t have to price your home lower just because it’s the off-season, but also don’t go crazy with that asking price. It’s easier than ever for people to research real estate market trends, so potential home buyers know if you’re overpricing. If you want to sell your house quickly in the winter, educate yourself on trends and home prices in your area to find reasonable asking price that won’t necessitate too much haggling to settle.

Be Hospitable
One of the cons of selling a home in winter is that traffic tends to be a bit slower. Fewer people are out looking at properties because they’re either distracted by the holidays or prefer to stick to the indoors because the weather is bad. However, the people who are browsing homes this time of year are more likely to feel a sense of urgency to make a decision on where they will live, as it is the time for first-quarter job transfers and there is less inventory on the market. Because of this, it is important to be very hospitable to anyone who comes through that door. A good first impression and a warm welcome can make a positive association in their mind, which improves your chances of getting a serious offer.

Here are some helpful tips when showing your house:
● Light a fire. Not only does it create a cozy atmosphere, but it also smells divine.
● Play soft music.
● Turn on all the lights in the house and open up drape and curtains.
● Run a humidifier to make your home’s air less dry (just make sure to change filters
regularly).
● Don’t pressure or hurry the potential buyer.
● Provide light refreshments.
● Leave note cards that detail vital information about home features.
● In the end, supply them with pens and a stack of questionnaire cards for feedback.

Stage with the Season in Mind
Staging your home to sell in the winter isn’t too different from other parts of the year. You want it to be clean and decluttered while highlighting the property’s best features. However, there are a few differences. For one, the home’s curb appeal may not be as eye-catching as the plants and grasses in your yard may be dormant. Laying down mulch in the front yard can help with this problem. Not only does it help your yard look more polished, but it also insulates the soil that protects plant roots from the winter chill. Furthermore, a layer of mulch is an effective barrier that keeps mud off your shoes and by proxy your floors.

Putting your home on the market in winter may mean less traffic, but people who are shopping during this time of year are more serious about making a purchase in a timely manner. Accurately pricing your home so there isn’t a need to haggle makes it more likely that you’ll snag a serious buyer. Be hospitable with everyone who walks through your door — the right first impression can lead to a sale. And while home staging in the winter isn’t really that different than summer, your curb appeal may suffer due to the season. Making adjustments like laying mulch in the front yard can make up for a lack of vegetation in the chillier months.

5 Holiday Hosting Disasters and How to Avoid Them

Imagine you’re preparing to host your annual holiday party, and you’re past the point of no return. The veggies and meats have been bought. Guests are already braving busy airports and crowded highways to get to your home — and then your oven won’t turn on. Your home-cooked meal has quickly turned into a microwave dinner.

That’s just one of many hosting nightmares that can end your holiday party before it even begins. Thankfully, some of the most damaging mishaps easily can be avoided. We collected five of the most prevalent issues and give you preventative tips to keep your holiday party on track.

Problem: The Oven Doesn’t Heat

For any holiday occasion, the oven is the most important appliance in your house. If it fails to work, the centerpiece of your meal could go from roasted beef, ham, duck, or Tofurky to Peking Duck from the local Chinese takeout joint.

How to avoid:

  • There are any number of reasons a stove can break, but one common cause of disaster is easy to prevent. Don’t self-clean your oven until AFTER the holidays. You risk blowing a fuse or a thermostat, and tracking down an oven technician around the holidays can be tough.

Problem: The Kitchen Sink Clogs

The day after Thanksgiving is the busiest of the year for plumbers. The prime cause of this clog-a-thon is the mistreatment of drains when cooking holiday feasts. We hope your Thanksgiving went well, and that you avoid clog-a-thons for the rest of the holidays.

How to avoid:

  • Fats and cooking oils can solidify in your pipes, so never dispose of them in your kitchen sink.
  • If you have a garbage disposal, make sure it’s running before anything goes in it, and never feed it any stringy, fibrous, or starchy foods like poultry skins or potato peels.
  • To fix, don’t rely on chemical drain-clearing products that can harm your pipes. Use a snake instead, available for $15 at your local hardware store. Best to keep one on hand.

Problem: The Heat Goes Out

As the party’s host, you’re supposed to hang guests’ coats — not apologize to them for having to keep them on. A lack of heat can stop a holiday party dead in its tracks.

How to avoid:

  • The key to avoiding freezing your party to a standstill is regular maintenance of your HVAC. Every 90 days, a new one-inch pleated furnace filter should be installed. If you haven’t done it in a while, now’s a good time to replace it.
  • Also inspect insulation on refrigerant lines that are leading into your house. Replace them if they’re missing or damaged.

Problem: The Toilet Stops Up

Toilets have a way of clogging up at the worst times, such as during parties and when you have overnight guests. This is especially true if you have a low-flow toilet from the early 1990s.

How to avoid:

  • Don’t flush anything other than sewage and toilet paper down the toilet. And there’s nothing wrong with putting up a polite note to remind your guests to do the same.

Problem: The Fridge Doesn’t Cool

Without a properly functioning refrigerator, your meat could get contaminated, your dairy-based treats could go sour, and you may not be able to save your yummy leftovers. To avoid discovering a warm fridge after it’s too late, take these simple precautions.

How to avoid:

  • Get a thermometer for your refrigerator to make sure each shelf stays below 40 degrees and you can be aware of any temperature changes.
  • Also make sure the condenser coils located on the back of the unit or beneath it are free to breathe. Coils blocked from circulating air by cereal boxes atop the fridge, or dirtied by dust or pet hair can prevent a fridge from keeping cool.

Top 10 Tips for Selling Your Home During the Holidays

The holiday season from November through January is often considered the worst time to put a home on the market. While the thought of selling your home during the winter months may dampen your holiday spirit, the season does have its advantages: holiday buyers tend to be more serious and competition is less fierce with fewer homes being actively marketed. First, decide if you really need to sell. Really. Once you’ve committed to the challenge, don your gay apparel and follow these tips from FrontDoor.

  1. Deck the halls, but don’t go overboard.
    Homes often look their best during the holidays, but sellers should be careful not to overdo it on the decor. Adornments that are too large or too many can crowd your home and distract buyers. Also, avoid offending buyers by opting for general fall and winter decorations rather than items with religious themes.
  2. Hire a reliable real estate agent.
    That means someone who will work hard for you and won’t disappear during Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s. Contact our team of professionals, we are ready with snow boots and shovels to list and sell during this time! This will ease your stress and give you more time to enjoy the season.
  3. Seek out motivated buyers.
    Anyone house hunting during the holidays must have a good reason for doing so. Work with your agent to target buyers on a deadline, including people relocating for jobs in your area, investors on tax deadlines, college students and staff, and military personnel, if you live near a military base.
  4. Price it to sell.
    No matter what time of year, a home that’s priced low for the market will make buyers feel merry. Rather than gradually making small price reductions, many real estate agents advise sellers to slash their prices before putting a home on the market.
  5. Make curb appeal a top priority.
    When autumn rolls around and the trees start to lose their leaves, maintaining the exterior of your home becomes even more important. Bare trees equal a more exposed home, so touch up the paint, clean the gutters and spruce up the yard. Keep buyers’ safety in mind as well by making sure stairs and walkways are free of snow, ice and leaves.
  6. Take top-notch real estate photos.
    When the weather outside is frightful, home buyers are likely to start their house hunt from the comfort of their homes by browsing listings on the Internet. Make a good first impression by offering lots of flattering, high-quality photos of your home. If possible, have a summer or spring photo of your home available so buyers can see how it looks year-round.
  7. Create a video tour for the Web.
    You’ll get less foot traffic during the holidays thanks to inclement weather and vacation plans. But shooting a video tour and posting it on the Web may attract house hunters who don’t have time to physically see your home or would rather not drive in a snowstorm.
  8. Give house hunters a place to escape from the cold.
    Make your home feel cozy and inviting during showings by cranking up the heat, playing soft classical music and offering homemade holiday treats. When you encourage buyers to spend more time in your home, you also give them more time to admire its best features.
  9. Offer holiday cheer in the form of financing.
    Bah, humbug! Lenders are scrooges these days, but if you’ve got the means, then why not offer a home loan to a serious buyer? You could get a good rate of return on your money.
  10. Relax — the new year is just around the corner.
    The holidays are stressful enough with gifts to buy, dinners to prepare and relatives to entertain. Take a moment to remind yourself that if you don’t sell now, there’s always next year, which, luckily, is only a few days away.

10 Simple Comforts Every Houseguest Will Adore You For

It’s Holiday time and you just might be expecting house guests in the coming days. Fun! It’s always nice to welcome friends and family into your home. You want them to feel welcome & comfortable–you can easily achieve this and impress them! Take a look at this list of 10 Simple Comforts for you house guests…

List of Upcoming Greenbrier Valley Events at the bottom…keep scrolling!

#1 Stock Up on Extra Chargers and Cords

how-be-good-host-cords-standard_a31b6a5dd8fe3df3c210f6ec3e74f1cf_860x627_q85.jpg

A dead phone equals getaway misery. Set out a bowl with power strips and cords, outlet converters, and even an iHome speaker. Your guests will thank you, especially if they forgot theirs!

Another great tip—Post your Wi-Fi name and password in the guest room so they don’t have to bug you.

#2 Offer Sample-Size Toiletries in Your Bathroom

Put your stockpile of samples and hotel toiletries to good use. Tiny shampoos and lotions arranged in a basket or vintage apothecary jar are as welcoming as they are practical. Guests will be relieved if they forgot their own, but even if they didn’t, they’ll love the luxury of washing their hair on the house.

how-be-good-host-toiletries-standard_2889ea5e641f7cf26b8dd75f47fe3beb_860x574_q85.jpg

#3 Raise Your Cleanliness Standards

When you miss a dust bunny at home, you may not think too much about it- but to guests, it’s disgusting at best and insulting at worst.

So clean it all. Airbnb even tells hosts to scrub the entire bathroom, not once but twice, including the toilet, sink, bath, and floors after every guest.

One Airbnb host said, “We make sure you can smell the cleaner.” 

#4 Give It Your Personal Touch

Family and friends come to town and choose to spend the night at your house rather than sterile hotel rooms because, in part, they want an authentic, personal experience.

So give it to them!

Scatter pictures and family treasures throughout your space. Frame a couple of your childhood photos and hang them up alongside some mementos from your own travels.

#5 Put a Radio in the Bathroom

Your guests may like to sing along in the shower, but the real reason for putting some tunes in the bath is to provide them with plenty of, well, privacy. Add an essential oil diffuser — or poo-pourri drops — and you’re in business.

#6 Set Up a DIY Cafe

If your guests are early birds — or will just want some occasional alone time — put a coffeemaker in their room along with a well-stocked basket of coffee and tea. Maybe even blow their minds with a mini fridge full of snacks.

To pull this off right, ask how they take their coffee in advance, and stock up appropriately.

#7 Designate Drawer and Closet Space Just for Guests

If your guest room closet could be featured on Storage Wars, it’s time to rethink your stuff strategy.

Maybe donate your to-be-regifted pile and sell those designer jeans you’ve been holding onto since….highschool — to make room in the closet and dresser for guest to have plenty of space (and the key word is plenty).

Label a few guest drawers and crack the closet so they can see there’s space to hang their clothes.

#8 Fancy Yourself a Travel Agent

Give guests a local’s-eye view by filling a basket with menus from nearby restaurants, brochures from local businesses that cater to tourists, and a current issue of your community newspaper. It’s a great way for guests to feel like a local and customize their time in your town.

#9 Hang a Robe – or Two – in the Closet

how-be-good-host-robes-standard_2c6c0c8cf42e3b2d7c9e643bc3097d32_860x574_q85.jpg

Help your guests feel right at home by hanging a couple of cozy (and freshly laundered), one-size-fits-all robes in the guest-room closet.

Not only can they wear their pajamas to breakfast without feeling self-conscious, but they’re also super-comfy and great to wrap up in after a shower.

#10 Expect the Unexpected with Extra Personal Supplies

And let your guests know where they are so they won’t feel guilty for bothering you (or worse, go without!). Here’s a list of things that great hosts always keep in stock:

  • Disposable razors
  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • First-aid kit
  • Towels, pillows, and extra blankets
  • Umbrella
  • Flashlight
  • Replacement light bulbs

Being the perfect host is perfectly achievable. With a little forethought, you’ll start racking up your own stellar reviews from your friends and family. Get ready to be the house everyone vies to visit.

Thanksgiving 2018: How family and friends can influence the home purchase

This Thanksgiving we look at how recent buyers are choosing their homes, and how their friends and family can influence their decision. While we don’t all get to see our families every day, for many home buyers having the option to do so can impact the home they purchase. Based on data from the recently released 2018 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, we can see how multi-generation homes are becoming more common and the importance of living close to friends and family.

DsixZFEXQAA1rn3

  • This year 12 percent of all buyers purchased a multi-generational home, and multi-generational buyers were typically 51 years old. Eighty-three percent of the multi-generational homes purchased were single-family homes.
  • Multi-generational homes were typically 2,070 square feet and were purchased for $264,100. Buyers of multi-generational homes typically expected to live in their home for 20 years. Forty-seven percent of buyers owned their previous home.
  • Thirty-nine percent of buyers of multi-generational homes had children under the age of 18 living in the home.
  • Among all multi-generational buyers, the desire to own a home of their own was the primary reason for purchasing (29 percent). The majority of multi-generational buyers were married couples (63 percent), and single females (19 percent).
  • The main reasons for purchasing a multi-generational home were for to care for aging family members (44 percent), and children or relatives over 18 moving back into the house/never left home (37 percent).
  • Ten percent of buyers of multi-generational homes purchased their home to be closer to friends and family. Single females (12 percent) and married couples (nine percent) purchased their homes to be close to friends and family.
  • The convenience to friends and family for single females (47 percent), married couples (38 percent), and unmarried couples (35 percent) was an influencing factor of their neighborhood choice.
