Hurricane Arthur did not stop Marion 4th of July Parade and Horse Show!

Marion Hores ShowHurricane Arthur may have postponed the Marion 4th of July Parade and Horse Show from Friday to Saturday but it didn’t stop the events from being a time-honored tradition.

Friday’s weather would have made for a dismal parade and horse show, but the organizers had the foresight to postpone until Saturday which turned out to be a beautiful day.

There were many spectators watching along the parade route.  The parade included all the Marion Firefighting equipment, much to all the children’s delight as well as tractors, antique cars, some very unique and adorable floats, local marching bands, and even some go-carts.

The tri-town really all came together to populate the parade and there was plenty of candy to be had for all the waiting children along the parade route.

The Marion horse show is a time-honored tradition in its 67th year.  The location at Washburn Park is a beautiful outdoor arena where the horse-showmanship and judging take place.  The local talent and horses are amazing.  It was a beautiful day to pull up a chair and watch the horses and their riders go through their paces.  The horses were dressed up in their Fourth of July Finery with one even sporting an Uncle Sam beard.  It truly was a day to remember.

The Ins and Outs of Home Inspections!

house no frameA Home Inspection is an objective, visual examination of the structure and systems of  a house by a licensed home inspector  from the foundation to the roof.  The home inspector will check the foundation, basement, structural components, roof, walls, heating system, plumbing and electrical systems, insulation, and even appliances.

Buying a home is a huge investment.  To minimize surprises, it is your right to hire a home inspector  to check out the house.  He will point out repairs you may need, maintenance issues and maybe even a defect you were unaware of.   You usually have ten days to have your inspection done after you sign your purchase and sale to make sure there are no issues with the house that you were unaware of.  If something major is found, you will have the opportunity to bring it up with the seller to make repairs or perhaps renegotiate the price.  After a home inspection is not a time to renegotiate over items that were present when you put your offer in, but rather if something comes up that you were unaware of  at the time of your offer.

If you are selling a house, a home inspection can give you the opportunity to make repairs that will optimize your chance in selling your home.

Home inspections can run anywhere between $500 to $1000 dollars.  You may choose to add other inspections such as termite or pest as well as water which could run you more.

A home inspection is not a test, but rather a way for you to  better know the house you are buying.  It is a good idea to be present and follow your inspector around to hear what he has to say as he examines the house.

Where do you find a home inspector?  Your real estate agent can suggest a home inspector for you to use or you can contact the American Society of Home Inspectors for a list of home inspectors in your area.

Summer is a Great Time to Purchase a Home!

451 Neck Road Rochester MARealtor Magazine is reporting that buyers are saying that summer is the best time to purchase a home,  according to the latest Prudential Real Estate Consumer Outlook Survey.  The Spring Momentum is predicted to carry into summer.

Seventy-seven percent of 2,500 surveyed reported having a favorable view of housing, a 12- point increase from one year prior.

Nearly 70 percent of those surveyed say they are committed to buying or selling a home now, a six point increase from 2013.

Home valuations remain attractive and mortgage rates are still near historic lows.  We are seeing more optimism and enthusiasm after the brutal winter market.  As more homes come to market and lenders ease their stringent underwriting guidelines, we anticipate busy times ahead in real estate.

The survey also found that sellers are optimistic  about putting their homes on the market and with a lot of potential buyers ready to look, there could be competition for existing homes this season. 

Buyers are also planning to look for a house soon before the interest rates rise.

Astilbe

What makes a house look distinctive and special beside the house itself?  Landscaping!  While many people hire professional landscapers to make their yard look unique and special, there are many perennials  you can plant yourself to accent your house.

Perennials will come back year after year with little effort.  Some do spread, so you may want to plant them a little away from other plants.  Some great perennials to plant which do not spread too much and provide great color are astilbe, lupines, peonies, columbines, and folxgove.  Most of these come in different colors.  You may want to check when they flower so that you have color all spring and  summer long.  For example, lupines usually bloom at the end of May into June, while astilbes are a July bloomer.  You can also plant perennials that bloom in August such as helianthros to keep your gardens always in bloom.

There are also lots of bulbs to plant which will come up every spring, such as tulips, daffodils, crocuses, etc.  This will give you early color starting as soon as the end of March depending on the weather.

Some perennials which are beautiful but do spread are coreopsis, hydrangeas, helianthros, bee balm (tall or short), irises, lilies , hostas and lamb’s ear.  They are beautiful and come in different colors and bloom at different times.  Just keep  in mind that they will spread and you may have to thin them out here and there if they start taking over your flowerbed.  You can always transfer them to another area that needs a little color.

Keeping everything weeded and mulched will really bring out the beauty of your gardens and make your yard pop!
