Is the place you’re living in too small? Do you have kids that need their own room? It might be time to go house hunting. If this is your first-time as a homebuyer, then you’re about to embark on a exciting and at times frustrating journey. Here are some smart tips to make your house hunting go smoothly:
Consider Style and Neighborhood
As many neighborhoods as there are to consider in Denver, there are just as many different home styles to pick from. You might have a vision of your “dream home” but perhaps you could be persuaded by considering another style or community. It’s like picking a college. You always have first choice but you also need a back-up. Often the backup turns out to be the best move.
The only way to guarantee that you’ll get everything on your wish list is to build a home based on your designs. Beyond that, you probably won’t find the “perfect” home. It might have a great kitchen but not enough closet space. Or maybe it’s an amazing backyard but not enough bathrooms. A lot of issues you might have with a home can be fixed with remodeling and renovations. You should be moving in for a long time and that means plenty of time to fix things up.
Consider Up and Coming Areas
Everyone wishes they had bought IBM stock back when the company went public. If held onto, that stock would be worth quite a lot today. You have the chance to “get in on the ground floor” of an up and coming neighborhood. This might require some research. If there is an area with a new school being built or a new shopping complex, then it’s a safe bet the homes in the surrounding areas are going to be worth a lot more down the road. An experience realtor will know where the hot spots are and they might be in areas you’re not even thinking about. Give them a look.
If you’ve got a home that is a good price, in a decent neighborhood but has some junk on the property, then ignore the junk. As long as the place is structurally sound, then the junk can be easily removed with one call to Junk King Denver. Clearing away rubbish from an old house or a new home is a Junk King Denver specialty. Put them to the task today.
A lot has changed in the house since your kid has left for college. Obviously, you miss them a great deal but you might not miss the trail of clutter that they seem to leave behind every time they walked through the door. Plus, there’s no telling what kind of “disaster” they left behind in the bedroom. The best way to combat your feelings of empty nest syndrome is to get active. That makes this the perfect time to organize your house. Start with what you can get rid of. Consider these possibilities:
There are at least two or three pieces of furniture in every home that probably has seen better days. Often when you buy something new to replace a sofa or recliner, that old piece ends up being stuffed in a spare room or down in the basement. If you know you’re never going to use this furniture again, then you should get rid of it and open up that space.
Just as furniture gets replace so do all your electronics. You might have in storage old DVD players, monitors, gaming systems, printers and laptops. They’ve all been replaced and upgraded now but you know you shouldn’t throw that stuff in the trash. You need to find a certified recycling center that can handle e-waste.
When was the last time you want to your closet and pulled out every single outfit? You may discover some amazing outfits that you forgot you had. More likely, you come across a lot of things that you’re never going to wear again. That’s also true for shoes, coats, hats and scarves.
Anytime something gets broken the hope is it will someday be repaired and put back into use. But that is often easier said than done. Do you have a broken vacuum cleaner in a closet that never going to get fixed? What about a toaster oven or microwave? It would be a lot cheaper to replace those things then try and get them repaired. Now they are just taking up space.
After you do an inventory of your home, you’ll find plenty of things that can be gotten rid of. This is when you want to call in Junk King Denver. These are the junk removal pros that have a lot of experience removing this type of clutter. The two-man crew who will be assigned to your junk removal task will quickly gather up all the things you want taken out and loaded onto the truck. This can happen in less time than it takes to have breakfast in the morning. Organize your house the right way by turning over your rubbish to Junk King Denver first.
The change of seasons come on fast. Wasn’t it just yesterday that you were planning your summer vacation? Now it is officially back to school time, which means we’re zooming into fall. Before things get too deep into the season, you’ll want to make your home ready for fall with these helpful to do tasks:
Check the Roof
It should be easy to do a visual inspection of your roof from the ground. If you notice something that seems out of sorts, then grab a pair of binoculars for a closer look. If you feel comfortable climbing on a ladder, then check out your roof that way but that might be a job better left for professionals.
Get Your Chimney Clean
It might have been several months since you lit a fire in the fireplace. If you didn’t clean your chimney at the end of last winter season, then you definitely want to get it done before you light your first fire of the fall. It’s always good to not only get your fireplace clean but also inspected.
Stock Up On Your Firewood
The best time to buy firewood is when no one is thinking of firewood. That is right now. If you’re going to buy a lot of firewood for the entire fall/winter season, then it’s best to store it away from the house under some protective cover.
Inspect Your Siding
Along with checking for any damage on your roof, you also want to go around the entire exterior of your home and check for cracks or holes in your siding and foundation. Could probably do minor repairs but it’s important to plug up those entry points not only to keep out the drafts but also uninvited pests.
Clean Your Gutters
If you saw any icicles last year alone your rain gutters, then it’s a good indication that those gutters are clogged. You can wait until after the leaves have completely fallen off the tree before cleaning your gutters but if it’s been a while then you may need to make two trips up the ladder: one now and one at the end of fall.
Get Rid Of Your Rubbish
As you go through this fall prep, you may also spot a lot of rubbish you can get rid of. Whether that’s clutter you’re keeping underneath a deck or along the side of your garage it doesn’t do you any good to hold onto it. One call to Junk King Denver can make it all disappear. They’ll put a plan into action that involves two capable movers and a big truck. That’s really all you need to get rid of all your unwanted rubbish. It is a smart move to hire Junk King Denver to help get your home ready for fall.
The most popular time to rent a storage unit is in between moves. As you make the transition from one home to the next you may discover that the storage space at your new home is at a premium. Renting a storage unit is a good way to keep a hold of your stuff and free up space around your house. There are some effective ways you can organize to maximize that space. Here is what you need to do:
Make an Inventory
We often forget about what we put away in storage in a closet. But with a storage unit, it’s even further removed. That’s why you should create a detailed inventory of all the things that you’re packing up. Your boxes should be numbered to correspond with your inventory list. That way when it’s time to retrieve something you will know exactly which box to go through.
Use Only Two Box Sizes
It will help to use just two sizes of boxes. This will make them easier to stack. They also be sturdy enough so that the bottom box can withstand the weight of the other boxes being piled on top. Just be sure that heavy stuff goes to the bottom.
Protect Exposed Furniture
Your storage unit is not going to be totally vacuum-sealed. Over the ensuing months and years, it can become rather dusty. If you are storing furniture, then you may want to consider wrapping it in moving blankets to keep the dust off. Try to avoid putting things in plastic bags as they might generate mildew.
Defrost and Drain
If you are storing a freezer, refrigerator or wash machine, they should all be totally defrosted and drain before going into the unit. It would also help if you can keep the freezer or refrigerator door slightly open.
Oil the Tools
Before putting tools in storage, it would help to rub them down some oil. That prevents them from rusting. It will also help to put everything up on pallets especially if your storage unit is on a bottom floor.
To maximize the space you want to make sure you’re not keeping junk in storage. You can arrange with Junk King Denver for a storage unit decluttering session. They’ll be able to pull the truck right up to the unit and you tell them all the things you want removed.

There is only one genuine way to get organized and that is to decide what to keep and what to throw out. That applies to your junk drawer in the kitchen and to everything in your garage.

When deciding what to throw out it might help to apply the rule of thumb used by most professional organizers. If you haven’t used something in over a year, then chances are you not going to use it again. That is something you can definitely get rid of. Think about applying that rule to clearing out your closet. How many articles of clothing do you have in there that you haven’t worn in over a year or longer? Do you really see yourself wearing those things again? Why hold onto them? You might also have an old PC or monitor tucked in the closet that is long since been replaced. Do you really need to take up valuable storage space by holding onto something you never going to even plug-in? All of this can be turned over to Junk King Denver.
