The Ten Year Fix

Once your home hits the ten year mark, it is probably time for some home maintenance. Here are nine updates your home will benefit most from according to Zillow. 

Get new Carpet: After ten years it is likely that your carpet has rips, tears stains, and odors that won't come out even with a deep clean.
Replace the hot water tank: A water heater may not show signs before it leaks or fails, but after about ten years you should replace it before it's too late.
Update ceiling fans: If the fan's light bulb seems to burn out faster than normal it is time to replace it.
Buy a dishwasher: You'll likely get a more energy efficient model that will pay for itself over time.
Replace the garbage disposal:The average garbage disposal last about ten years because the blades will get dull.
Replace the washer and dryer: The average lifespan for both appliances is about eight years. replace them before problems start occurring.
Repaint inside and outside:There is no rule about when to repaint. It depends of where you live, but if it's been about ten year chances are it's about time to repaint.
Re-caulk the tubs, showers, and sinks:This is a simple update that you can do yourself.
Re-glaze the windows: Re-glazing the windows is easier and more cost efficient than replacing them.

Ten Questions Your Real Estate Agent should Ask.

Good real estate agents will ask their clients a series of questions to determine if they are ready to buy! These are 10 questions you should always be asked before buying.


  1. Have you been in front of a good lender, and do you know what loan programs you qualify for?
  2. Are you in the military? You can qualify for a VA loan.
  3. What is your budget? What are you currently spending on rent? What would  you be comfortable with for monthly mortgage? (first time home buyers should not spend more than 25%-32% of their net income on housing.)
  4. Do you have any savings or family support for a possible gift toward a down payment?
  5. How long do you envision living in your first home?
  6. How far is a neighborhood from work or school?
  7. What do you need from the community in which  you want to purchase?
  8. Are you aware of the cost to maintain a home so that it retains its value? 
  9. How about utilities? Are you prepared for a water bill to water a large yard, or heating bills during winter months?
  10. What are your expectation from me?
