If part of your New Year plans include selling your current home and moving into your new home in San Antonio, set the stage for success with these home staging tips for styling and upgrading your home to sell quickly.

Enhance curb appeal.  This is something your always hear about and there is a good reason.  Many buyers will drive by a home they are interested in first to decide if it is even worth their time to look inside.  Make sure your home is ready to lure in onlookers.

Welcome potential buyers with an inviting porch.  Even if it is only a tiny stoop, make the most of it with a doormat, potted plants and if there is enough room for an outdoor chair.  Keep your porch lights on in the evenings and illuminate the front walk with solar lights.

Make sure your house is clean.  From clean floors, windows, counters and grout, every surface should sparkle just as you want your new Weston Dean home to when you move in.

Clear away all clutter.  This point is not easy, but all clutter must go.  You will have to pack it eventually to move into your new Weston Dean home, so why not get ahead of the game and do it now to make your home appear to have tons of storage.

Don’t forget the closets.  Closet space can be a big selling point for buyers, so show yours off to their full advantage by giving the impression of spaciousness.

Clean up toys.  Even if you have families with children looking at your home, that doesn’t mean they want to see toys everywhere when they come in to look at your house.  Have decorative baskets that you can throw toys into for a quick showing.  When buyers are house hunting, they are imaging a fresh start, just as you will when you move into your new Weston Dean home.  Show them that in this house it is possible to have a beautifully organized kids room and they might choose your home.

 

These are just a few tips that will help you make the move to selling your home and getting you and your family into your Weston Dean home for the New Year!

Healthy Habits for the New Year

A Healthy 2016

A Healthy 2020

As we enter the end of 2019 and the holiday season, many of us are thinking about the New Year and maybe some things we want to change as the new year approaches. If your goal is to be healthier in 2020, Weston Dean Custom Homes, a premier New Braunfels custom builder, gives tips to help you create healthy habits for the New Year that you’ll actually be able to stick with this time around!

Love the food you eat! The best way to do this is to be mindful of the food you eat. If you enjoy each delicious taste, it will make it easier to stick to a sensible eating plan. For the foods you love, look for ways to make them better for you. If you love pizza, try substituting a lower-calorie crust and choose toppings that help counteract the added fat and calories.

Be sure not to skip meals. Some people think skipping breakfast will help them cut calories for the day, but more times than not this actually backfires. Most of the time skipping breakfast leads to being hungrier as the day goes on and you end up overeating or eating unhealthy snacks to make up for not eating in the morning. Starting off your day with a well-rounded breakfast to fuel your body.

Eat smaller portions. When you feel the need to indulge, do so, but in moderation. A clever way to keep your portions small is to use a teaspoon and not a serving spoon to dish out servings.Get your fill in healthy ways. Overeating most of the time comes down to one basic cause: hunger. Becoming more conscious of how you answer your hunger will help you stay on the right track. Drinking water before and during events will help fill you up so you are less hungry and won’t consume excess calories. Snacking throughout the day can also help keep hunger at bay. Several small healthy snacks can help you feeling full and not get to the point of over-hungry.
