Downsizing for Mid-Michigan Seniors Preparing for a Move

Downsizing can be difficult for anyone, but after a lifetime of accumulating treasured items, paperwork, clothing and more, packing for a move can be an overwhelming task for many mid-Michigan seniors.

Our best advice is start small - focus not only on one closet, but one item - for example, winter coats. If you haven't worn the item this past winter, is it likely you'll wear it next winter? If not, consider making a donation. Goodwill Industries has a convenient drive-thru donation procedure - they'll unload your donations from your vehicle and provide you with a receipt for your taxes.

If you or your loved one needs help organizing and reducing clutter, paperwork or sorting, packing and making donations of unwanted items, give us a call for a free estimate.

Spring Cleanup a Must for Properties Listed for Sale

Drab brown grass and leafless trees give a barren look to the exterior of homes and businesses listed for sale. While we'll just have to wait it out until spring for a vibrant green landscape, a little lawn and garden TLC can brighten up the appearance of a property even before the tulips begin to bloom.

Over the winter, wind-blown leaves, broken branches and sometimes even litter accumulate around bushes, trees and other landscaping. Around the Home offers yard/garden spring cleanup that will leave your property's lawn and garden in top shape for spring.

Spring brings the hope of a new selling season in the real estate market - give your property the finished look it needs to sparkle even during these last few weeks of winter. For more information, contact Kurt at (517) 242-9717.
