Business + baby update

Melissa is back from maternity leave!

Being a mama is definitely her favorite thing in the whole entire world. Which is why she decided to take some extra time off to be with her girl.

London Reese Adler was born March 10, 2013. We couldn’t be more in love with our little angel. She is the most adorable grand baby ever!

Recently we took a family camping trip to Lake Del Valle in Livermore. It was so much fun!! London absolutely LOVED being outdoors & swimming in the lake with Daddy. Here’s me “grammy” & London at the lake. Too precious for words!

In Melissa’s absence my youngest son, Evan came aboard to help with her duties. It worked out so well that they are now officially working together. Which is great, because trying to work with a 5 month old can be quite tricky. We make a fantastic team! In the past 6 months, we have been continuing to expand the business & learn new skills.

We look forward to keeping you updated & of course helping with your real estate needs.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.

We’re always here to help!

Best Wishes,

The Re/Max Lindstrom Team

Now is the perfect time to sell {Easy tips to get your house ready for the market}

Spring is here and with it brings lots of home buyers looking to purchase! If you have been considering selling your home, Spring time is by far the best time to do so.

{We have compiled a list of tips for preparing your home to be sold}

Your goal with this first and foremost is to make sure your home is clean, bright and comfortable.
Keyword clean. You want buyers to be able to envision themselves living in your
home. You don’t need to go crazy fixing up your house, but in order to get top dollar,  make sure these key things are complete:

  • Clean carpets & remove stains and/or replace flooring if necessary.
  • Clean windows, doors (finger prints), keep kitchen clean; remove all food products, cookware, etc from counter tops.
  • De-clutter the home. Get rid of the knick-knacks.

  • Pretend you are a potential buyer. Clean up and repair everything that would turn you off.
  • If your home will be vacant consider having it staged. This helps the buyer see what the house looks like with furniture.Also; depending on the home’s condition can help the house look more appealing! When a house is completely bare, it tends to show every little flaw.
  •  Clean bathrooms; get rid of mildew and mold, toilet bowl rings and remove personal hygiene products. Bathrooms and kitchens are top sellers, so get them in the best condition possible. Nobody wants to see your tooth brush and toothbrush sitting on the vanity! Also, consider buying white hand towels, new bathmats & shower curtain – white suggests clean.
  •  A small vase with pretty flowers wouldn’t hurt either. Just sayin!

  • If necessary, remove pieces of furniture to make a room feel bigger.

If you have dark or bright colored paint on your walls, we suggest you paint
them a neutral light color.Wild colors don’t really appeal to buyers. Neutral sells.

  • Handle all minor repairs around the house. Examples: fix faulty electrical wires, replace lose tiles in the bathroom, replace cracked electric plates,replace light switch plates, fix leaky faucet, repair sprinklers, re-calk shower.

  • Install Carbon Monoxide detector – mandatory & the law as of July 2011
  • Install fire alarms in the home or make sure current ones are in working order.
  • Mow the lawn, paint front door, straighten up front porch & plant some pretty flowers (flowers optional). It’s always helps the home sell when it has curb appeal, so do what you can.

We hope this helps! Contact us today for a free, no obligation market analysis of your home.
