How to Get Your Garden to Grow 0 Comments Posted

State Wide Realty Co: Farmville, VA

How Does Your Garden Grow?

Ten Things to Know When Planting a Garden

This is the time we see the stores stocking the essentials for spring planting season whether it is flowers or vegetables. Here are 10 things to consider when planting a garden.

1. Provide a level surface. This can be done by grading an existing area or by making raised beds to plant in. AVOID planting on an incline so you won’t risk water runoff before it can absorb into the ground.

2. Loosen the soil before you plant. Tilling a larger area or using a shovel for smaller areas will accomplish this and allow for the seeds or starter plants to attract and feed off the soil’s nutrients.

3. Don’t plant too close to a solid structure. A wall or solid fence will not allow for proper air circulation for plants and can increase the likelihood of a fungus buildup. A good 2-3 feet of separation will work in most cases.

4. Know your area. What plants thrive the best in your area based on the climate, average rainfall, and soil type. If your soil is lacking in nutrients, you can add fertilizer to help your plants thrive.

5. Correct seed spacing and placement. Don’t put seeds or plantings too close together so that they won’t have room to grow. Consider the mature plant size when determining how much space you will need. Also, make sure that you aren’t putting things next to each other that will hurt each other such as a tall plant shadowing a smaller plant and not letting it get enough sunlight.

6. Water appropriately. Know which of your plants need a lot of water and which ones can handle the heat better. You don’t want to drown the plants just give them a nice drink preferably in the early morning when the air is cool.

Hope this helps to make your home garden grow.

Ways to protect your privacy when selling your home 0 Comments Posted

State Wide Realty Tip: 
Farmville, VA 

Ways to protect your privacy when selling your home

It is stressful enough when you invite family and friends to your home not to mention when you put your home on the market and now people you have never met will be coming in your home. Here are a few things to do to keep your privacy while strangers are viewing your home.

Tip #1: You want to make sure you put anything away that has your full name, address and a company name on it such as bills. Also make sure that you don’t have diplomas or marriage memorabilia up that will give strangers your information they can use to open accounts or hack yours. Take down any personal information about your kids or other family members as well.

Tip #2: Make sure you lock up prescription medications so that strangers can’t take them or use your information to get medicines with.

Tip #3: Don’t leave your computer/tablet/phone where a stranger can access it and get information off of it to use.

Tip #4: Talk to your State Wide Realty agent about how you would like showings to go as far as the agent walking with the customers or allowing them to go explore on their own.

State Wide Realty Tip: Making a Good Impression 0 Comments Posted

State Wide Realty Tip: 
Making a Good Impression

When selling your home there are numerous things to think of. One important thing to consider is what kind of impression does your home make when someone enters it? No one is saying it can’t look like you still live in the home you are trying to sell, it just shouldn’t look like you aren’t going to move anytime soon. Here are a few things to keep in mind when selling your home.

First, try to limit the amount of personal affects you display such as kid’s artwork, family photos, and such. When others come to look at your home they should be able to see themselves in the space and not feel like they are taking that space away from little Johnny or Jane.  

Next, have a pet? Make sure any toys, treats, etc. are put up and not scattered throughout the home.

Also, try to limit any clutter that would make accessing or looking at a room difficult such as the treadmill in the guest room. Put away items such as plungers, toilet brushes, or things that would not appeal to the buyer.

Just remember, your short term inconvenience will make a long term impression!

State Wide Tip: How to Declutter Your Kitchen 0 Comments Posted

State Wide Realty Tips: Farmville, VA
How to Declutter Your Kitchen

The kitchen is a high traffic area in the home whether you are a cook or not. Your kitchen is a gathering spot for catching up and also for those things that magically appear and end up in the “junk drawer(s).” When the clutter takes over it can make any kitchen, no matter the size, feel cramped and nonfunctional. Here are a few ways to help you organize your stuff and keep the kitchen free from clutter chaos.

Tip #1: Clean off the countertops.

                Only keep on the counters small appliances you use on a daily basis such as a coffee maker in a dedicated space. For all the others, utilize a cupboard or pantry space to house these items until they are needed. Not only will this make your kitchen feel larger but also give you more room to work. 
Also keep decorations that take up counter space to a minimum. They can create clutter or obstacles when trying to prepare food. Be creative with your décor and instead of having a fruit bowl on the counter, use a mesh hanging basket that won’t use up counter space.

Tip #2: Organize Your Cupboards.

                Store items close to where they will be used most often. For example, keep coffee mugs near the coffeemaker or cooking utensils near the stove. This will not only help in locating them when you need them but also make it easier to put back.

Tip #3: Eliminate The Junk Drawer.

                It is extremely easy to just throw stuff in a drawer, close it and forget about it until that drawer becomes 2 drawers or dare I say 3 drawers. Evaluate the item for what it is, if it is junk then throw it away, if you will need the item again then put it away in the proper place.

Tip #4: Create a Multifunction Area.

                Have a spot that can have a bulletin board for notes, a grocery list and drawers for takeout menus, receipts and appliance manuals. Having a dedicated space for these things will help to keep this clutter from ending up all over the house.

When your kitchen is free from clutter it allows you to be able to enjoy being in there whether you are cooking with family or entertaining friends. There are numerous websites/stores with the coolest organizers and space savers that you can utilize to help with the process.

State Wide Realty Explains: Common Financing Terms 0 Comments Posted

State Wide Realty Explains:

Common Financing Words

When purchasing a property, most individuals will need to finance all or a portion of it. There are a lot of different terms when it comes to borrowing money that can leave anyone asking-what does that mean? So we decided to take a few of the most common terms you may see and help you understand what they mean.

Pre Qualification: This means that you have been provided an estimate of what a sort of loan you can expect to obtain based on your credit score and what’s currently available. It is a good idea to get a prequalification letter to take with you on your house hunt.
Pre Approval: This means you have been approved for the loan that you have applied for. There is a time limit for the approval in which the terms quoted are guaranteed.

Locked In: This means that you have a certain interest rate if you acquire the loan within a certain amount of time, usually 30 days.
The Loan Deconstructed
Principal: Amount that is owed on the loan excluding interest.
Interest Rate: Percentage amount of loan that you will be paying on the loan.
APR (Annual Percentage Rate): The yearly cost of financing the loan amount.
Term: The length of time over which the loan will be repaid.
Amortization: Schedule of payments over a period of time to pay off the loan amount.
Points: Amount of money that a buyer can choose to pay to the lender in order to get a lower interest rate. A point equals one percent of the loan amount, this is usually paid at closing.
Closing:  the point at which the loan is complete and the terms become active. Everything will be signed and completed at closing.
Closing Costs: The amount of money that must be paid at closing to make the loan active.

Talk to the local bank and find out how they set up their loans and what other resources they can offer. A local bank will be familiar with the types of properties and homes that are being borrowed on and what is out there for the customer.

We are here to help with finding the right home, land, farm, or commercial property that is in your budget. Call State Wide Realty Today at 434-392-6163 or visit our website at www.VaStateWideRealty.com.

Home Buying Tip: What to Consider For Each Season 0 Comments Posted

State Wide Realty Farmville VA
Home Buying Tips:

What to Consider For Each Season

In whatever season you decide to buy a home there are factors to consider when making your choice.

What to consider about a home for the Winter Season: 
How is the home heated/cooled? Depending on the heat source and the size of the home your heating bill could run high.

Is your area likely to get a lot of snow? How accessible is the home from main roads for traveling and getting in and out. If your home is on a back road, up a big hill you will have to think about shoveling your driveway and how long it might take for your road to be cleared.

Things to consider for Spring

April showers bring beautiful May flowers but that rain has to have somewhere to go. Does the home you are buying have good drainage systems such as gutters and ditches. You want to make sure that water doesn’t pool up against your home or erode the ground around your foundation.

Also look at the size of the yard and decide if you are able/willing to maintain it. A large yard might sound nice but having to cut the grass, weed eat and landscape a large yard might not be something you want to deal with.

Summer Stuff

What direction does the house face? Does it get a lot of sun? These things can affect your cooling bill so it is important to consider when buying.

Will you have to water the yard? This could be an added expense if a system isn’t already in place and it is a dry summer.

Fall Thoughts

The tree-lined drive is on the must have list but what about when the leaves fall off of them or they get damaged in a storm? Are you able to keep up with raking leaves or tree removal? These are certainly things to consider before you buy.

Your home should suit you in every season. Make sure you consider what your home will be like all year long and not just in this moment. It will save you a lot of heartache and time in the seasons to come.

Need help finding a home to suit you all year long? Call State Wide Realty Co at 434-392-6163 and have one of our 15 local real estate experts help you with their combined 375+ years of experience.
