HGTV’s 5 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

Posted by

When it comes to New Years Resolutions everyone thinks to make resolutions for themselves, but what about your home? HGTV has come up with 5 resolutions to follow in 2019 that will keep your home organized, clean, and ready for the spontaneous summer cookout.

  1. Streamline the Stuff

One of the least expensive ways to improve your home is to get rid of the clutter. Clear out the cabinets and drawers of the extra stuff that you do not need and utilize the extra space to get organized. Also, this a good time to donate any old clothes you no longer wear to make room for the new clothes you have received during Christmas.

  1. Make it Safe and Sound

When it comes to home improvement people often think of remodeling and organizing, but keeping your home safe is another important task. Check for radon in your house and purchase a carbon monoxide detector, both of these will prevent adverse health affects, potentially even death, that is caused by these clear odorless gases. You can even make small improvements by removing the lint from the dryer every time you run it.

  1. Shrink Your Bills

You can save money on energy bills by turning your heat down while you sleep at night, installing LED light bulbs, only run the washing machine when you have a full load, and water your yard less.

  1. Work Out a Weekly System for Keeping Your House Clean

When you clean your house often you can keep the mess manageable and it will be not be as big of process every time you clean. A few tips HGTV recommends include, place your dirty dishes in the dishwasher every night, focus on one type of cleaning at a time (ex: dusting, cleaning windows, vacuuming), keep all of your cleaning products in a portable carryall that you can bring with you from room to room.

  1. Get Your Place Ready for Entertaining

An inexpensive way to make your home appear more finished is to add plants to a room, they bring in new energy and are great decorations. Additionally, adding a new accent color can freshen up a room.

Landfall Realty’s Hurricane Florence Update

Posted by

Thanks to all our dedicated Homeowners’ Association staff, Landfall is well on its way to recovering from Hurricane Florence. Workers predict that all tree debris removal should be completed within the next 3 weeks. The benefits of being a self-contained community resulted in a quick recovery as our COA began immediate clean-up efforts. Flooding in Landfall was restricted to streets that had clogged storm drains and not from storm surge or breach of Wrightsville Beach or other barrier islands. Many Landfall residents stayed in their homes sharing their generated power with neighbors, and almost everyone else has now returned home. Communication with our owners before, during and after the storm from our COA by email and phone messages has been and continues to be outstanding. All Landfall property owners had power within 48 hours after the peak of the storm, and internet services were restored shortly thereafter. Dozens of Landfall residents have volunteered to feed and care for visiting responders at various locations around Wilmington. Spirits are high with an outpouring of good will towards the rest of our less fortunate neighbors throughout other areas of North Carolina and South Carolina.

We at Landfall Realty are back in the office, working with our customers to facilitate transactions that were pending at the time of the storm. We are also ready to help our existing clients with any issues they may have relating to their Landfall properties and homes. We feel truly blessed to live and work in a community so well organized and funded that was proven to be relatively safe from tidal waters.
