Home Seller Worried About Selling His Home

Debunking Myths About Selling Your Home You Probably Still Believe

When selling your home, especially for the first time, you might not know where to start or who to ask.  Of course, we have family, friends, and co-workers that we can turn to but even the best information can be second hand and not quite “true”.  So, when it comes time to list your home, you’ll need to separate fact from fiction.

We’ve compiled a few real estate myths about selling your home and gathered the facts so you can be confident and on track to selling your property.

 

Myth #1: A home’s exterior isn’t as important as the interior

Truth: Home buyers will usually make an initial judgment of a home-based simply on its exterior. Therefore, curb appeal is very important.

“A lot of buyers search online or drive by properties before they even enlist my services,” says Bic DeCaro, a real estate agent at Westgate Realty Group in Falls Church, VA. “If the yard is cluttered or the driveway is all broken up, there’s a chance they won’t ever enter the house — they’ll just keep driving.”

The good news is that it doesn’t cost a bundle to improve your home’s exterior. Start by cutting the grass, trimming the hedges and clearing away any clutter. Then, for less than $50, you could put up new house numbers, paint the front door, plant some flowers or install a new, more stylish porch light. 

 

Myth #2: You can do it solo

Truth: The truth is you can but you are in for a world of headaches and stress.  Just to begin, ask yourself these questions:

Do I know the value of my home in today’s market?

Am I ready to work with a buyer’s agent?

Will I take charge of sales and marketing responsibilities?

Can I bear the criticism of my home?

Am I willing to screen potential buyers?

Am I able to take endless calls and meet potential buyers at any given point to ensure the sale of my home?

If you try to sell on your own, you have to do all the hustle—and there’s a lot of hustle to marketing a home. Plus, who’s going to weed out the creeps and the nonserious buyers? A Realtor® does the heavy lifting—to attract the right kind of buyer, sift out the ones you would never want to do business with, and negotiate the heck out of potential offers to get you the best possible deal.

 

Myth #3: You must make major repairs

Truth: A new front entryway will go farther to selling your home, at a lower cost to you, than installing a new roof. Of course, if certain repairs are required, you must do them.  However, if you feel like you need to sink a ton into repairs to enhance your chances of selling, tap the breaks.  Small things like fresh paint on interior walls will make your house more appealing than sinking a lot of money into new bathroom sinks.

Also on a side note, large renovations are unlikely to add tremendous value, or simply break even, with the sale of your home.

There are so many things to consider when selling your home and so many questions to answer.  These are just a few real estate myths about selling your home that you don’t have to worry about! If you’re looking to sell your home with confidence and expertise, call us today and let one of our agents guide you through the process!

Budget Friendly Tips For Creating A Great Outdoor Space

Having an outdoor space comes with many advantages—morning coffee as the sun’s rising, evening wind-down sessions amid the stars, and backyard barbecues, to name a few. In order for your space to be as relaxing as possible, however, it requires regular maintenance and the occasional upgrade. Fortunately, you can do just that with your outdoor space without draining your bank account. Here are a few budget-friendly tips for preparing your outdoor space to entertain you and your guests:

Start with the furniture

An outdoor space without furniture is just space. No one wants to stand for long periods of time outside, no matter how nice the weather is. Getting outdoor furniture is the first key to creating a relaxing area. Whether you have a deck, patio or terrace, you can find reasonably-priced tables, chairs, and loveseats at retailers like Walmart—and you can save even more money by using Walmart coupons and promo codes. If you already have good furniture, perhaps it needs new covers. Replacing your cushion and pillow covers doesn’t cost a lot of money, but it can make each piece look like it’s new. If you’re crafty, you can save by creating your own slipcovers and shopping for fabric at budget-friendly retailers like Joann Fabric (don’t forget to keep an eye on their sales).

Bring on the lights

Placing some budget-friendly lights out can really liven up your outdoor space. You can also get creative with how you add the ambiance. For evenings, light sources like oversized lanterns, glass hurricanes with candles, and other forms of candle holders can work perfectly for bringing a relaxing atmosphere. If you plan on hosting get-togethers, string lights, pathway lights, and pendants can do the trick. Besides the fact that you can easily find affordable lighting, the best part about lighting your outdoor space could be that it’s hard to have too much lighting. You can put string lights, candles and lanterns all over the place, and it will only add to the ambiance.

Show some love to your landscaping

No matter how much time, money and effort you put into your outdoor space, you probably won’t end up using it much if your landscaping is out of shape; a ratty lawn and dead plants can kill any vibe you’ve managed to create. You can do some basic landscaping at little to no cost. Keep the lawn mowed, trim your shrubs and tree limbs, and make sure you keep your lawn from becoming cluttered with branches, leaves, unused tools, and other junk. Here are some other budget-friendly ideas for impressing guests (and yourself) with your landscaping:

  • Tastefully add a mulch alternative (e.g., pine straw, shredded leaves, grass clippings, etc.) in your plant beds and around your trees.

  • Repurpose buckets, storage baskets, and trash cans into planters, and spray paint them a bright color.

  • Plant natural perennial ground covers (pansies, violets, creeping periwinkle, etc.) to add color and keep weeds at bay.

  • Build a DIY fire pit.

Add some extras

Along with furniture, lights, and landscaping, you can put some extra flavor and function into your outdoor space by adding rugs and curtains. Whether it has an elaborate or simple design, an outdoor area rug can transform your space by contrasting and complementing the surrounding design elements. If you have a covered outdoor space, hanging curtains can up the level of comfort and officially make your outdoor space the coolest in town. Outdoor rugs and curtains are typically less expensive than their interior counterparts.

Getting your outdoor space ready to entertain doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Invest in good outdoor furniture from stores like Walmart or refresh it with new fabric accents, and add as much affordable lighting as you desire. Put some sweat equity into your landscaping, and consider adding outdoor rugs and curtains. Before long, your outdoor space will be the envy of the neighborhood.

San Angelo residents having fun in downtown San Angelo

Home Sweet San Angelo NightLife

 Over the last few weeks, we have touched on many of the things that make San Angelo such a unique and rewarding place to live. We gave a glance into the deep historical roots that made their mark on our town and embedded themselves into our present day.  We also dug into our rich art culture and shared the many outlets offered to showcase the beauty built into our city’s core. Lastly, with summer here and many families joining our community, we jumped into the many local forms of recreation we proudly boast.  With this post, we will highlight another element people often look for when they move to a new city – NightLife.

San Angelo has so much to offer for families, but we don’t want to forget about those of us that like to get out when the sun goes down.  We don’t want to sound “cliché”, but millennials do make up a large part of any city’s population and going out is something that people, of all ages, enjoy.  San Angelo is no different and although we might be smaller than some of our neighboring cities, we are big in our ability to provide something for everyone.

A quick search and click on Downtown San Angelo’s website will give you a great starting point for where you might go to have a truly amazing San Angelo night out. If a nice glass of wine while you relax and listen to live music is something you enjoy, we suggest you start out somewhere along the lines of The Black Swan Wine Bar or Blaine’s Pub.  However, if a night of rock and roll is your thing, then definitely head on over to the one and only Deadhorse Lounge.  And if you’re ready for a night of retro fun and just an all-around great time like you’ve never had, you’ve GOT to head over to The House of Fifi DuBois.  We also have a good handful of traditional bar/pub establishments as well, Warehouse 150, SoCo Tap House and Fat Boss Pub are just a few.  This recent post that was done by San Angelo Live actually provides a list of San Angelo Nightlife Events going on here over the summer.

Like any other nice sized town, we do have a varied selection of sports bars.  We’ve not only got the well-known establishments like Buffalo Wild Wings, Twin Peaks, Hooters and Shenanigans, we also sport our own popular spots that are more along the lines of the “hometown” feel.  The Titled Mug is a hot spot for those looking for a few laughs and to listen to a few good tunes, or even sing a few!  Fiddlestrings Bar and Patio is another hot spot with pool, washers, corn hole, water volleyball & shuffleboard on site!  Then, we, of course, have bars and grills if you want to eat while you play! Outside of your traditional chain restaurants like Chilis and Outback, we have our very own Concho Pearl, Zero One Alehouse and Twisted Root.

We also understand that the live music scenes are not for everyone, which is totally fine when you live in a town that has plenty to do by just getting outside.  San Angelo also has a monthly event called the DSA & Cultural Arts District Downtown Stroll hosted every 3rd Thursday of each month. Open to the public, art, food, and fun line the streets of downtown San Angelo accompanied by the free trolley to take you wherever you’d like to go. No matter where you go, there is always something in San Angelo nightlife for people to enjoy.

You can also take a stroll down the Concho River after dark and experience it outside of the bustling of the day. Lighted walking trails, tons of fishing spots and life-sized games will surely entertain you and equal a great night.  Head over to the LoneWolf Bridge or any number of our parks and enjoy the coolness that comes with the sun setting. Stress comes with relocation and without a break from the process, burn out will set in. Take a minute for yourself and enjoy your new surroundings.  With work and the heat of these long summer days, a break from the norm and getting out at night is something well deserved. You have plenty to pick from, treat yourself!   

NextHome Legends Offers Commercial And Residential Real Estate For Your Family

Home Sweet San Angelo – San Angelo Recreation

School is officially out, and travel is underway.  If you’ve been following our blog series on “Home Sweet San Angelo”, you’ve learned a few tiny tidbits about our community and what it has to offer.  We primarily want to ensure that anyone coming to the area feels a little more comfortable in their transition through this series of information. But we also hope that those who already call San Angelo home can possibly explore our town more through the information we provide.  On this week’s post, we will highlight the most memorable San Angelo recreation activities that your family can explore this summer.

The primary source of attraction during the summer months is none other than Lake Nasworthy.  Not only is it a great source to cool down and have fun with the family, but it also provides a plentiful supply of fish.  As stated on the Texas Parks and Wildlife webpage, you will predominately find largemouth bass, white crappie, white bass and, of course, our channel and flathead catfish.  For many of us, fishing with family is a past time sketched into our memory books and with the many sources of water we have throughout the city, many memories are to be made here.  One thing you might not know if you aren’t from here is that Lake Nasworthy also has the perfect beach setting, found at Mary E. Lee Park.  With the fun beach atmosphere that offers barbeque pits and tons of space to set up tents and build sandcastle cities, you are in for many days of family entertainment on this shore.

If you are in the area of the beach you might also take a visit into the San Angelo Nature Center, located right next door.  With exhibits of animals ranging from local to exotic, your family will be in for a treat with guided tours and fun events, all throughout the year.  You can also enjoy a day full of water fun by visiting the Twin Buttes Reservoir that offers tons of trails for off-roading while you play.  If you decide to venture downtown, you can enjoy another water attraction, The Riverwalk.  On the Riverwalk, you will find Kid’s Kingdom (playground galore), The Bosque (fun for big and little kids alike), a skatepark, walking trail, the Riverstage and, once again, fishing!  If getting in the water is more up your alley on a hot day, then head right down the road to Love Municipal Pool.  Or, even make the short trip out to Brown’s Pool and enjoy the water and yarded activity area on site.

By visiting the San Angelo Parks and Recreation page, you can find a list of links to many area attractions and parks.  No summer is complete without the roller rink and ours comes with a putt-putt course, laser tag, and arcade!  With the San Angelo State Park, San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts (with TONS of summer programs) and SO much more, we know that you will find your place somewhere amongst our town’s bustling streets.  The saying goes “There’s No Place Like Home” but we also understand that when you are starting in a foreign place, your heart doesn’t feel at home.  We hope that through our continued series your heart will become more adapted to this new town and her people. And eventually, you will fall in love with the best of San Angelo’s recreation and engage the new sense of “Home is Where the Heart Is”.  Be looking for our next post which will highlight local nightlife for the millennials coming our way!

Home Sweet San Angelo - Arts

Home Sweet San Angelo – Arts

As mentioned in our last blog, a walk-through downtown San Angelo can feel like a stroll back in time with the historical hints found on basically every corner.  What you will also find as you travel down the roads of our small, yet larger than life town, is art that displays itself in many forms.

Of course, there is the focal point of the art district, the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts where you will find a treasure trove of exhibits that range from ceramics to contemporary photography and everything in between.  Inside the decorated walls you will also find permanent collections that include glass sculptures, a Spanish colonial collection with items dated back as far as the 16th century and various other pieces with a distinct purpose to be used for study, scholarly research and exhibition.  With summer camps and various activities offered every week on “Art Thursday”, there is something for every member of your family to enjoy.

There are also smaller museums that can be found up and down the streets of our city’s center.  The S.A.M.F.A. has a page dedicated to local museums that can be found here.  If a kid-free evening (let’s face it, we NEED those) spent courting your date is something you’re looking for, then head over to one of our newer galleries, Raw 1899.  An evening spent here will provide you with a casual atmosphere surrounded by abstract art (created by local and non-local artists), topped off with fine wine and specialty cheeses.  A fun fact about this gallery is that it actually encompasses historical San Angelo within the walls that hold its art. Approximately built in 1899 (hence the name), the building itself is a time capsule of San Angelo’s past.  “Once owned by First Baptist Church San Angelo, the century-old walls, original tin ceiling, and floors made with Concho River sand echo the past.”  The Black Swan Gallery and Wine Bar is another treat that downtown San Angelo has to offer.  Rumor also has it that you can also commission an original portrait of your pets from Susan Daniel here.  Maybe we will have her do one of Luke and Lixie for us!

If a day of family fun, hanging with a group of exceptionally talented artists and an atmosphere full of life and color is more your speed, then you HAVE to visit The Chicken Farm Art Center.  With various events throughout the year and art that ranges from paintings, drawings, pottery, jewelry making, sculpture and so much more, something for everyone can be found at this little “farm”.  The “first Saturdays” are once a month, year-round, featuring local artists, select vendors, live local musicians, great food, and activities for kids (and adults) of all ages. If you’ve never experienced this crazy little collection of art and talent, you have to check it out!

We’ve listed places to go to purchase and enjoy art within the walls of our town but you truly only need to take a little time and look around to catch the spirit of art culture blowing through our streets.  A simple click on Art In Uncommon Places gives you a literal map of breathtaking abstract art pieces, created by local artists, and placed in “uncommon” places for people to stumble upon.  Many downtown establishments are decorated with the Historic Murals of San Angelo through the streets connecting to historical Chadbourne.  The talent of our current generation of artists has captured the roots of our past and brought them back to life through paint and love.  The Richard and Pam Salmon Sculpture Garden is another point of pride for San Angelo to boast as passersby catch glimpses of it’s larger than life sculptures as they travel down South Bryant.  One of our newest art initiatives was in the revitalization of Paint Brush Alley. Located between Concho and Twohig Avenues, this section of exploding art is not an “alley” but an experience.  As seen through the many photos being shared with the Art in Uncommon Places Facebook page, you could spend hours looking at the splendor of each nook and cranny found in this tiny landmark of our town.

There are truly too many places and ways to enjoy the deep-rooted art culture of San Angelo to capture in one simple article.  From the art painted on our sheep sculptures to the locks placed on the heart cage at the Lonewolf Bridge, one thing can be found in every place piece… our people.  Our art doesn’t just represent pretty pictures and neat mosaics. It represents a community of individuals who have spent countless hours and years of handwork creating an atmosphere that can’t be bought and bricked.  We take pride in what we’ve built and displayed for not just those that visit but for those of us who drive and work these streets daily. We can share a culture with our youth that is dying out to modern amenities in many other areas.   They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, San Angelo must be beaming with pride looking at all this town has become.

NextHome Presents The History Of San Angelo

Home Sweet San Angelo – History

Summer is rapidly approaching and with that often comes relocation.  Many will be moving to our small town, sometimes referred to as the “hidden oasis” of Texas, in the weeks to come.  Our primary goal here at NextHome Legends Realty is to earn the trust and business of those that call San Angelo home, including newcomers.  But, what about the city that houses the homes our potential clients are looking to buy? We take pride in our town and want to not only ensure that our clients feel secure in their real estate decisions but also in where they are choosing to set roots. We’re excited to show you the rich history of San Angelo and all it has to offer!

If you are not local to the area, you most likely have no clue that Texas is a world all of its own and changes drastically from 100 miles to the next.  San Angelo is unique not just in geographic features, compared to our Midland/Odessa neighbors, but is a region full of history, culture and a deeply connected community.

Over the next few weeks, we are going to share a series of posts that showcase our beautiful city and what it has to offer.  History is flooding the streets of San Angelo and as you travel her roads, you will be able to venture back in time and understand what sets us apart.  

As with any other town, we began with a few looking to settle unfamiliar land and prosper from the natural resources at hand.  Our beginning looked a little different with Fort Concho being in place, “built to protect frontier settlements, patrol and map the vast West Texas region, and quell hostile threats in the area.”  Not only were the benefits of the region (ample supply of water, ranching, agriculture, and the coming of the railroads) in place but the earnings of soldiers were at hand.  “Downtown” San Angelo flourished as a result of the combined resources offered within the city limits and set the stage for our town’s success. The fort now serves a functional and educational museum benefiting the San Angelo community, the state of Texas and the nation at large.

With San Angelo being located at the juncture of the North, South, and Middle Concho rivers and surrounded by farms in the east and ranches in the west, our town became more diversified than that of many other early frontier settlements.  Cattle and sheep ranching were prosperous and laid the bricks that paved our streets. You can actually find a few original brick roads left that, literally, represent our small beginnings. This article, written by the Texas State Historical Association, gives an in-depth look at how San Angelo came to be.

You can walk down Concho Avenue and feel the nostalgia of traveling through the past while enjoying the luxury of modern shopping and dining.  Eggemeyer’s General Store and Miss Hattie’s restaurant are prime examples of symbols representing downtown San Angelo that attract thousands to our city limits each year.

With a rich wool heritage, San Angelo has also captured that part of our DNA with the sheep statues you will find showcased all over town.  As stated on the dedicated webpage for our sheep statue project, “San Angelo was known as the wool capital of the world, and it is still an important economic base to the city.”  Our history is kept alive through many physical remnants, like these statues, made by the hands and hard work of our people.

Intersecting with historic Concho Avenue is another road that has seen many travels  – Chadbourne Street. Many storefronts have changed in appearance and name but can say they have stood the test of time.  San Angelo National Bank still stands as one of the oldest historical buildings in San Angelo and has witnessed many travelers and events that lock our past in place.  We also cannot forget our beautiful Cactus Hotel, one of the original Conrad Hilton Hotels, that is a treasure trove of our history and a West Texas landmark.

The San Angelo Rodeo, Old Town Historic District, Sanitorium and so many other entities of hidden history tell the story of San Angelo.  You might have lived here your entire life, or, are fixing to start a new one here and will most likely never know everything there is to know.  These foundations were made and have built San Angelo into what it is now. San Angelo is much like the rare concho pearls our region is known for.  We have so much hidden beauty if you take the time to truly seek it out. Next up in our series will be a look at our deep-rooted art culture that came from these humble beginnings.  [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

A homeowner doing a diy repair on his home

How to Know When It’s Time to Call Professionals for Common Home Repairs

As a responsible homeowner, you should and will take care of many maintenance projects on your own. However, there are some jobs that should always be left to professionals, whether it’s for time, efficiency, or safety. It can be detrimental to your future budget and the appraisal of your home when you opt to sell it. To make sure you’re aware of possible risks, here are some common home repairs you should never do yourself and some smart solutions for when you do need a professional.

When You Have a Major Problem with Pests

If you have a random rodent or bug in your home, you may be able to take care of that pest on your own. But for more serious problems, such as termite infestations, you will want to call in the pros – without question. Using pesticides and trying to address pests on your own can expose you and your family to potentially toxic chemicals that you are not trained to handle. Plus, you may not be able to take care of the infestation completely. So, if you have termites or rodents in your home, leave the dirty work to the pros. You should also check to see if your insurance covers termite repair, as well as any other serious pest-related issues around your home. The average cost to repair termite damage is $3,000.

When You Have Big Plumbing or Electrical Issues

Pests are not the only reason you should consider calling in the pros. If you are experiencing major problems with your plumbing, you may be better off calling professional plumbers as well. Those major problems include burst pipes or even low water pressure in your home. If you do not call a plumber to catch leaks or issues early enough, you could be left paying for water damage repair to your home. What’s more, a hefty water bill can cost you a few extra hundred dollars depending on the severity and longevity of your leak. The only DIY plumbing projects you should attempt are the simple ones, such as unclogging a toilet or repairing a running toilet. Electrical work falls under the same set of DIY rules, and a good rule of thumb, you should always hire a certified electrician to deal with any electrical problems in your home.

When You Could Be Legally Responsible for DIY Damages

Okay, so there are a lot of maintenance tasks homeowners can take care of on their own. You can change out your batteries in your smoke detectors or clean the foils under your refrigerator to keep things running smoothly. But there are some repairs and maintenance jobs that won’t save you time or money to do on your own. In fact, they could land you in big trouble. Most of those repairs are actually illegal for homeowners to DIY, and trying to work around the rules could leave you paying for any resulting damages on your own. For instance, if you attempt to cut down a tree on your property and you damage your neighbor’s fence, you could be liable for the costs of those repairs, as well as any resulting legal fees. So, it’s best to shell out a few bucks for a pro when safety is a top priority.

When You Aren’t Completely Confident in Your DIY Abilities

If a repair is not very complicated or illegal to DIY, should you attempt it on your own? Well, the answer depends on your comfort level with handling home repairs. There are tons of online tutorials that can take you through the steps of basic home maintenance and repairs, but you may not have the time or patience to tackle repairs on your own. Whatever your reason, sometimes it’s just best to get help from a pro. You may not even need a full-scale contractor; instead, you can have a handyman service take care of these tasks, which can take a lot of pressure off of you and prevent additional issues for your house. The average cost of hiring a handyman in San Angelo is $929, but costs will vary based on the time it takes to complete the job.

Trying to take on certain home repair tasks on your own can have major consequences. So, make sure you know when it’s okay to DIY and when to call the pros. That knowledge can protect your home, as well as the people living in it.

NextHome Corporate Hosted The 2019 Conference In Las Vegas

A Look Inside: NextHome Conference 2019

Each year, NextHome’s corporate office hosts an annual convention as a means for franchise development and to provide individual office recognition for the hard work and dedication produced across the nation. Hundreds of agents, brokers, and executives attend from the over 350 franchise locations. It may seem like a bunch of business-types who don’t know each other, but this conference is easily compared to a huge family reunion.

This year’s convention was held in Las Vegas, Nevada. NextHome members came in and painted the town orange for those few days. Owner/Broker, Rick Hanby, along with Agent Ben Thompson attended to represent the local NextHome Legends Realty office and, of course, to show off a little San Angelo pride.

For those unfamiliar with the history of the San Angelo office, it has been operating for less than two years within the NextHome franchise. During that time, Legends has jumped ahead to be first to earn the business of many here in Tom Green County. The agents are fierce in their desire to assist the local community with their real estate needs and it shows.

Out of the hundreds of teams at the convention, NextHome Legends Realty was recognized alongside some of the best. This location earned the recognition of the “Masters Club Team Award” which means more than $20 million in sales volume or 50 transactions were achieved within 2018. What that equates to for NextHome Legends Realty, itself, is that an impact has been made in San Angelo and it has been proven to many that this office can be entrusted with the buying or selling of homes and properties.

As this year progresses, NextHome Legends Realty commits to being even better than in 2018. The focus will remain on “Family, Community, and Collaboration For a Better Today and Tomorrow”, as it does for all NextHome franchises. The responsibility of helping those in need throughout San Angelo will continue to produce results. The desire to create an experience, not just a transaction, for those served will continue to be a primary motivator. To know you’re in great hands with your real estate needs is to know to call NextHome Legends Realty.

Stay Legendary,

Autumn Barnes
