Newsflash: What's Next Nashville?

What's Next Nashville?

Life is very different these days in Nashville and our surrounding areas.  The hard truth is that our city will be living with COVID-19 until there is an effective vaccine for the virus.  Terms like “social distancing” and “safer at home” along with the wearing of masks and gloves have all become commonplace.  So what is next for our community and what is the major’s plan for re-opening the economy?

Sarah Suggests: Outdoor Projects that Will Improve the Value of Your Home

With spring here, and with more time at home, it is a great time to focus on some outdoor projects that will pay off down the road if you decide to sell.

  1.  What you see is what you get.  Focus on your curb appeal.  Add landscaping, paint your front door, install a planter.  Curb appeal can be worth 8 to 10 percent of your home’s overall value

  2. Outdoor eating for the win.  Outdoor patios, screen porches, and decks add sparkle to a property.  A buyer may view an outdoor area as an especially  valuable home feature to have during hard times. 

  3. Don’t forget the gardens and plants.  Plantings will instantly transform a home and increase the value.

  4. Do some updates.  New lights, a freshly scrubbed deck or a fresh coat of paint make a difference in whether a home looks drab or fab.
