Home Maintenance: Gutters

Topic: Clean your gutters!

An important step to maintaining your roof, your home, and your budget: Gutter maintenance. It’s is a terrific way to preserve your roof and save yourself some money in the future. Gutters are designed to collect rainwater from the roof and carry it away from the foundation of the home through downspouts. Since both the gutters and downspouts need to be clear in order to carry out this task, having clogged gutters could cause an overflow of water.

Why clean your gutters?

Leaves can build up and clog the downspouts, which can cause water damage to your roof and fascia (the board behind the gutter). Water pouring over the gutters or from leaks can end up next to your home’s foundation, in the basement or crawlspace. If the water has nowhere to go, it will naturally fill up the gutter and eventually overflow onto the foundation of the home – and it won’t stop there!… Read More

Merry Christmas and Joyous New Year!

It brings me such joy to have you in my life! Real estate and family are my passions and I am so blessed to share both with you. The coming year is a big one for real estate and I urge you to connect with me. I’d love to know what’s on your horizon and talk about your home, your family and your real estate goals.

My real estate goals are to each year grow a niche. It has been over 10 great years with No Place Like Home so my next step is to expand. The fundamental way people do real estate is changing and I’m going to get in front of it. This means, you’ll still have me: Your Realtor, Your Friend, but have some options for you and your referral needs! Pricing plans in particular will change with flat rate options.

This year the total volume of homes in Natrona County down about 16M from 2016 to… Read More

Holiday Home Selling!

I am the first to say that the market is harsh round the holidays. However, it can make an average house shine and land a great price. Each and every single showing you get will be a qualified buyer, ready to buy and a motivated realtor, too. With fewer homes on the market to compete with and that naturally occurring longing for home for the holidays, it really is a great time to make a splash on the market.

I will never forget walking into my first Christmas wow house. Now, if you know me well, you know I am Christmas crazy and just love everything about Christmas so it takes some serious holiday decorating skills to impress me. The home was in the country and the fireplaces were lit up, the Christmas tree could be seen as we pulled into the drive. Ornaments were hung from the ceiling and each room was clean and showed the Christmas love. My… Read More

Tips to Sell in Autumn!

Showcase Your Home for an Autumn Sale

You may think that Autumn isn’t the best time to showcase your home, but you’d be wrong. Buyers are still out and ready to buy. Autumn has a unique appeal that’s all its own, and you can make your home decorated to say Welcome Home!

Fall home buyers are motivated; they want to move in before winter here in Wyoming. Put a nice new welcome mat out for buyers and their agents to wipe their feet. Fall decor is classy and inexpensive. Put out pumpkins, gourds, scarecrows, and mums now, and they will last through Thanksgiving.

Call Rita Parker at 247-0963 to start your journey now!

Here are some tips to selling your home during the changing season.

1. Let the light in! We already know there’s less sunlight in the fall and winter, so leave lights on for showings. Open the drapes and keep windows as clean as possible… Read More
