3 Common Ways Pets Can Damage a Home’s Resale Value

December 17, 2014
We should point out first that we LOVE pets. This post isn’t about us trashing pet owners or condemning those who have them. But, it’s not really a secret that having even one pet can be expensive. Monthly bags of food, unexpected vet bills, new toys, and boarding costs can add up quickly — but that’s only part of the price of pet ownership. It turns out that the estimated value of your home can plummet (potentially to the tune of $30,000!) when a potential buyer finds out the home was shared with a pet.

Why? Sometimes, pets stink. And they scratch. And they go to the bathroom where they shouldn’t go to the bathroom. We’ve taken the time to list three pet-related issues to watch out for if you want to retain your home’s pre-pet value.

6 Ways To Stay Mentally Fit For Life

December 10, 2014
At The Heller Real Estate Team, we have continually made recommendations to you over the years on how to stay fiscally fit. Keeping with that trend, we recently noticed an article in Entrepreneur Magazine and thought it would be an interesting read for our clients. It’s called, “6 Ways To Stay Mentally Fit For Life.” After all, we live in a great place of the country, the economy is good, our lifestyle is fantastic — why wouldn’t we want to enjoy it fully in all ways?

If you’re a parent, you probably monitor the shows your children watch, the music they listen to and the sites they visit online. After all, many desire that their kids not overdo the mental junk food.

But how carefully do you monitor your own intake? Maybe it’s time to take a quick inventory not just of physical habits but mental ones, too.

While you might not monitor your physical health by watching every calorie consumed or step taken, you might use a basic checklist to help you keep track. Morning workout and salad for lunch? Check. Afternoon walk? Check. Tally up the day and you feel proactive about your health.

Yet what about your mind? Are you providing your brain the stimulants it needs or the exercise it craves? Here are six suggestions:

A Strange Relocation

December 3, 2014
I’ve been in the real estate business for many, many years and have seen all kinds of different moving situations. At Heller The Home Seller, we’ve helped hundreds of families relocate from one town to another, one state to the next, and even from one country up and across the globe. However, I recently read an article that talked about a kind of relocation that I can honestly say I had never seen before.

Moving With Children

November 12, 2014
At Heller The Home Seller, we’ve helped over 3,000 families move throughout the years. I highlight “families” because sometimes we forget that our children are significantly impacted by moving from one home to another. As parents, we are thinking “wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a larger, newer home in a great neighborhood?” Yes, but our children may be thinking something totally different. We’ve discovered that children usually have a different feeling about moving than their parents. Children are thinking things like, “what about my friends,” “will I fit in at my new school,” or “but, I love the park around the corner from our house now.” They can actually develop a fairly high level of anxiety, yet many times they don’t reveal to their parents what they are actually feeling; mainly because they see how excited their folks are and they don’t want to upset or disappoint them.
