If you're someone who is seriously concerned about the state of our planet, and you certainly should be, then you might be wondering if there is anything you can do to help protect it. As it turns out, you can actually start having a positive impact on the environment right from your very home. With that in mind, here's a look at eight simple ways in which you can transform your home into a more environmentally friendly place.

 

1. Move Away from Incandescent Bulbs

Whether you're brand new to Greenville or you've been here for as long as you can remember, you'll be sure of one thing — when it comes to love for community, sharing, and communication, Greenville is at the forefront.

How Much Do You Think Your Home is Worth?

When I speak to homeowners who consult with me before listing their home for sale, I find the first thing they ask or want to know is, "What Is My Home Worth?"  Well, that is a simple question with a potentially complicated answer.  I will usually turn the question around and ask them, "What do YOU think Your Home is Worth?"  I do this because I want to understand where are they at mentally in the process of selling their home.  At this stage, most homeowners have not emotionally detached themselves from their home to look at it analytically (as a house) and, in many cases, will overvalue their home's worth. 

The most common answers I get back from a seller is:

What is a QR Code?

A QR Code is also known as a Quick Response code.  It's a funny looking two-dimensional square that is starting to pop up all over a variety of advertising mediums.  Originally, QR codes were invented by a Japanese company to track vehicle parts.  In retail, you'll see them side-by-side with bar codes, or on displays offering more information, linking to a questionnaire or a coupon. 

QR Codes are becoming very hot in the real estate industry - most commonly being used on sign riders to direct interested home buyers to more information about a home for sale.  Additionally, the QR code might be on the property flyer or flyer box itself.  Usually, QR codes will redirect someone who scans it to a website, pictures, a video like a virtual

In today's competitive market, there are many homes with the same (or similar) floor plan in the same (or nearby) neighborhood up for sale.  When "location, location, location" is the same or similar, how do you separate your home from the competition?...

Curb Appeal!

Buying a home requires the seller to create an emotional attachment for the buyer from the moment they pull up in their car.  However, what is equally important in today's web-driven world of online home search is how your home's curb appeal translates to online photos - which is where most of your buyer prospects are coming from.
