Stress-free Moving Tips

When selling a home, we always seem to have extra stuff we don’t want to take, i.e. furniture we won’t use or household goods to get rid of. Having gone through the selling process myself recently, this is fresh in my mind so I had to write about the best ways to get rid of pre-move stuff.

For large items like furniture, you can do a few things:

  1. Advertise them for sale on Craigslist. You can usually expect a higher price than you would get selling them at a garage sale, but be prepared. You won’t get top dollar for them on this site, and many buyers who shop here are looking for a deal!
  2. Consign them for sale. If it’s high end furniture, you can call a local consignment shop and get them to put it in their store. This usually brings in a higher price for each item, but the stuff has to be in great shape since consignment stores are particular about condition. We’ve got a local one in Colorado Springs called The Consignment Gallery. They will even come and pick it up for you, at their cost. You only owe them $35 as reimbursement once the item sells.
  3. Donate them to the ARC or Goodwill. Both charities have a curb-side pick-up service, free of charge! They will ask you to place the items on the curb the day prior. And that’s it. They come by and get your unwanted items for you. The local number to call for ARC pick-ups is 303-238-5263.

 

All of these came in very handy during my recent move. After all, who wants the added stress of moving all of that unwanted stuff?

Find your Dream Home as soon as it hits the market!

Page 7, page 8, page 9....if you have been searching for a home your eyes might glaze over as you get lost in looking at page after page of listings. All of the listings start looking alike and you can't tell which ones you have seen before or not.

SpringsHomes.com has created a new tool to help you find your Dream Home as soon as it hits the market. Using our Advanced Search, you can now select the "Latest" listings by entering in how many days old you want the listings to be.

Just started searching for a home? Enter 30 under the field "Latest" to return listings that were entered into the MLS in the last 30 days. Do you look for a home every day during your lunch hour? Enter 1 under the field "Latest" to return listings that were entered in the MLS within the last 1 day. It is that easy.

Using this criteria along with the other criteria in our Advanced Search, makes it easy to narrow down your search and only find the homes that you haven't already seen.

This is just one more way that SpringsHomes.com helps you find your Dream Home before it gets snatched up by someone else.

An Attitude of Gratitude

An Attitude of Gratitude

I know...it's cliche... but this month seems to remind us to keep our thankful attitudes in check. There are the meme's on Facebook that joke something like- "November... a month for everyone who complains for 11 months, to pretend they are thankful"... oh and then there's black Friday where we go crazy shopping and hurting our fellow Americans to get the best deal... just one day after spending a whole day being thankful. 

In all seriousness AND thankfulness, I feel like this month sets us up to try and not be materialistic for the following month's festivities and celebrate the reason for the season. But back to November. I have done the daily giving thanks posts on Facebook, which turns out to be SO easy really. Don't we all have far more than we ever need or possibly even imagined for ourselves and our families?! I want to start a list of the hundreds of things now... my husband, my kids, Jesus, where we live, etc, etc... But I'd run out of room and bore you all to pieces. 

I would however rather dedicate this November Thankful post to our country.. the wonderful USA!!! To me there are 2 major components to that- 

First, as Thanksgiving approaches, I think of those who founded this country, among other things, for religious freedom. We have so many freedoms to be thankful for, and honestly more opportunity each day.  

Secondly our military, still fighting for (and sometimes dying for) this great country. I'm thankful for each member of the military.. each soldier, airman, seaman, reservist (I'm sorry if I'm butchering this)... and for their families who experience sacrifice at home while their loved one serves. I'm thankful to live in a place where I can drive down the street and walk into our church to worship with like-minded believers and that across the street or the country somebody else can worship (or not) as they see fit. I can safely drive state to state to see our loved ones. I drive my kids to a school where they feel safe to learn and grow... while seeing an awesome snow-covered peak on the way. 

I'm thankful... for this country, for our military.

Happy Veteran's Day to anyone who has served. THANK YOU!!!

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone as well. Give Thanks!
