Start a Butterfly Garden - Homeowners- Heritage Realty International Inc.

When you look at a beautiful West Virginia garden, it's hard to imagine anything that would make it more attractive. But our real estate agents do have one suggestion you might like. Here are a few tips to help you create a butterfly garden.

• Pick the Right Spot
Butterflies enjoy sunny spots, shielded from wind and rain. Strong winds are hard on these delicate creatures, so it's essential to provide some protection. If your garden doesn't already offer those features, you can add shrubs or trees to your landscaping. Stick to native species. Some good choices are dogwood, wild cherry, and yellow poplar. It's important to remember that your winged visitors need both sun and shade. Large rocks placed among the shrubs provide resting places to enjoy the sunshine while showing off their splendid colors.

Home Emergencies - Heritage Realty International Inc.

Owning your first home is really exciting, but realizing that you can no longer call a landlord when something goes wrong can be a little bit intimidating. Our real estate agents want to help eliminate any anxiety you may feel by sharing ways you can be prepared to resolve some of the most common issues yourself. Here are a few precautions you can take.

• Power Outage
Don't get caught in the dark when there's a blackout. You can dodge a bullet by maintaining a supply of portable LED lights for each room. Rechargeable bulb lights hang anywhere and have a much longer lifespan than standard flashlights. Syles and prices are almost limitless. When the lights go out, it's also a good idea to disconnect most appliances and electronics so that they aren't damaged by a surge when the power comes back on. If anyone in the home requires electrically powered medical equipment, it's important to have a battery or generator backup plan.

Our real estate agents know financing is a home is one of the biggest concerns a new buyer has. Even experienced buyers who've been through it before can find the financing process a bit intimidating. That's one reason it's critical to have a trusted agent on your side.
