Staging Your Home to Sell at the Holidays

Christmas is almost here but the real estate market marches on and there are still buyers and sellers looking to buy or sell their home.  It can be a little daunting at this time of year when you have your home on the market and are looking to make it look its best for the holidays.  You’d like to enjoy your last holiday at your home but also know less is better when you have a home to sell.

What to do? Here are some tips.

Subtle touches are best like a simple Christmas wreath on the door, pretty centerpiece on the table and maybe some homey Christmas smells. Keep to one theme.  Maybe your decorations are earthy like cranberries and real Christmas greens or a certain color like white lights and white decorations.  Keep to the theme so everything looks clean and cohesive.

You may have some special features you’d like to highlight like a fireplace mantel or crown moldings or an attractive doorway.  Place some simple decorations to accent the feature and draw the eye to it but not so much that it is hidden and hard to see.

Put up some simple white lights and forgo the tacky decorations and don’t over do it.  Simple is better.

A Christmas tree is a nice feature but consider your room.  You may not mind if your tree takes up a lot of your room, but your buyers will think the room is small.  If your ceilings are high, pick a taller tree to accent that.  You may want to go with a smaller, thinner tree this year if your space is limited.  It will make the room look bigger.

Turn your heat up.  You want the home to feel warm and toasty.  If you have a fireplace, keep a fire going.  It really makes the home feel cozy and you buyers will want to stay and look around.

Food is always a great touch! At this time of year, warm drinks and sweet treats are desirable.  Hot cider, hot chocolate and homemade cookies make the house smell good and everyone loves a warm, tasty treat.

Enjoy your holidays and your selling journey and your buyers will feel the same way.

Bulldogs Play at Gillette Stadium on Saturday!

Bulldog’s perfect season hinges on Super Bowl matchup

 
 
 
 
Nov 25, 2018
 
 

After winning 14 straight games, the Old Rochester Bulldogs will look to top off their impressive season with a win against Stoneham in the Division 6 Superbowl on Dec. 1 at Gillette Stadium.

Back in September, the Bulldogs opened up their season with a crushing 42-0 victory over the Wareham Vikings. Their dominance on the scoreboard did not end there, and it took two more weeks before the defense let up a single point. 

The Stoneham Spartans head into the championship game at 11-0, with the one loss coming in overtime against Reading Memorial High School. The Spartans are not strangers to the end zone this season, as they have had seven games with 40 or more points. 

Both teams have the ability to run up the score or to play lights out defense, suggesting that the matchup has the right ingredients for an instant classic. 

“We need to make sure we’re ready to go and we have to have great practices like we have all year,” said Bulldogs coach Justin Kogler when asked about his preparation. “We have to be super focused coming into the week and ready to play.”

The showdown against Stoneham will be the final game in a Bulldogs uniform for the 22 seniors on the roster, who graduate from Old Rochester in the spring.

As part of the MIAA State Football Championships, fans will also be treated to an NFL-caliber game presentation with music and replays on the stadium’s high-definition video boards. The Kraft family will again donate the use of Gillette Stadium’s field for the games.

Tickets for are on sale via Ticketmaster, and will be available on game day at the Gillette Stadium Ticket Office, located outside the Patriot Place Gate. Tickets sold at the ticket office for Friday’s game will be available beginning at 9 a.m. and tickets for Saturday’s games will be available beginning at 8 a.m.

All fans will enter the stadium via the Patriot Place Gate in NRG Plaza, located near the ticket office. Tickets are $17 for adults and $14 for students and senior citizens. Children 5 years old and younger will receive free admission.

ORR Bulldogs are Heading to Gillette Stadium

Bulldogs hoist trophy after rocking Ashland

 
 
 
 
Nov 9, 2018
 
 
 
 

MATTAPOISETT — Facing heavy rain and slick mud, the Old Rochester Bulldogs combined hard-nosed defense and an unstoppable running game to take home the Division 6 South Championship trophy after punishing the Ashland Clockers 28-6. 

The Bulldogs had David Hagen Field rocking on Friday night after they put up four scores and gutted the Ashland offensive attack. The Clockers could not find the end zone until the final minute of play due to the driving rain and an impenetrable defense which crushed any hopes for a comeback. 

The Clockers (9-2) received the opening kickoff as rain began to fall and fans cheered at each side of the field.

The Bulldogs’ offense can score in an instant, so it was important for Ashland to score right out of the gate. Unfortunately for them, the Bulldogs defense came ready to play and forced a quick punt on the opening drive.

After a turnover from the Bulldogs, however, it looked as if the Clockers had a chance to shutdown their undefeated opponent. 

Despite the takeaway, Ashland came up short on offense as well. 

With a well-placed punt pinning them at the one-yard line, the Bulldogs put together one of their most impressive drives of the entire season. On the back of a strong rushing attack, the Bulldogs marched the length of the field and pounded the football into the end zone on an eight-yard Desmond Dias rush at the end of the first quarter. 

On the next drive, the Bulldog defense came up with a big third down sack to force yet another Ashland punt. Without missing a beat, the Bulldogs hit pay dirt on a 39-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Noe, putting them up 14-0. 

The stingy defense quickly halted the Clockers on their next drive. On the attempted punt, the snap was fumbled by the punter and the Bulldogs went to work on offense at the goal line. Dias wasted little time finding the end zone again and did so on a hand off at the two-yard line. 

At the end of the half, the Bulldogs were up 21-0 and poised to continue their dominance in the second half. 

Though the offense did not score again until fourth quarter, the Bulldogs’ defense refused to give Ashland any breathing room on offense. 

The Clockers started the second half by moving the ball well and picked up a few first downs. When it seemed like Ashland was starting to click on offense, a fumble quickly put a damper on any momentum they were starting to build. 

By the end of the third quarter, the steady rain had turned into a complete downpour and converted the field into a muddy soup. 

If there were any questions about the Bulldogs’ defensive effort heading into the second half, they were all put to bed following an impressive eight-play goal line stand. With Ashland knocking on the door of the end zone, the Bulldogs came up with back-to-back fourth down stops after a pass interference call gave Ashland a new set of downs. 

On the eighth attempt to get into the end zone, the Bulldogs swarmed an Ashland runner and forced a timely fumble at the two-yard line. The defensive stand effectively ended any shot for Ashland to rebound from its poor start to the game. 

Before the final seconds ticked off of the clock, Dias found the end zone on a 28-yard rush and Ashland managed to toss a touchdown pass with  55 seconds left on the clock, but it was not enough to overcome the deficit. 

When the clock hit zero, the Old Rochester student section stormed the field and Bulldog players celebrated the victory by turning the muddy field into their own slip’n slide. 

After playing 12 games this season, and winning them all, the Old Rochester Bulldogs finally hoisted their Division 6 trophy in front of a crowd of peers and family members. 

“It’s been a great year and the kids earned it, I’m very happy for them and all my coaches,” said Coach Justin Kogler. “I’m extremely proud of them, their work in the offseason is the reason why we’re here right now and they’re just a great group of kids.”

With Friday’s win, the Bulldogs will move on to play at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough for the Division 6 Super Bowl.

New Halloween Celebrations in the Tri-Town

 It was a nice comfortable, quiet night for Halloween this year.  There were two new events in the Tri-Towns for Halloween night this year.

The Rochester Woman’s Club held a new event on Halloween night at the Clubhouse on Marion Rd.  Since the Plumb Corner trick-or-treat event was discontinued this year,  the Woman’s Club decided to host their own Trick-or-treat night.  The women decorated the clubhouse and sat outside with a bonfire and bags of candy for the trick-or-treaters.  It was a great community event!

Another new event was held at Ned’s Point Lighthouse in Mattapoisett!  The ground floor of the lighthouse was opened up to visitors by the Onset/Marion US  Coast Guard Auxiliary flotilla on Halloween night.  For the first time, the lighthouse was opened up for tours this summer.  Many visitors have never been inside the lighthouse and the tours were very popular.  Only the bottom of the lighthouse was open last night but there were pirates and plenty of candy added to the event!  They are hoping to repeat this at Christmas time.

BOLD Moves Real Estate is always interested and involved in our community events in our BOLDTowns.  Visit www.boldmovesrealestate.com for all your real estate needs.  We can help you with your real estate move and take all the anxiety out of your transaction.
