Make More Storage Space In Your Shed

No matter how big your home is when you moved in, storage is the first thing you need more of. This is why closets and garages fill up so quickly. You might have added a backyard shed to your property for additional storage space. It makes perfect sense to use the shed for gardening tools and equipment. This is also a good spot for outdoor toys and winter sporting goods. Over time, that shed can fill up with stuff just as quickly as the garage. Are you ready to make more room in your shed? Then you’re ready for a session with Junk King Richmond.

Junk King Richmond specializes in removing those bulky objects you can’t toss out into the trash. An old rider lawnmower would definitely fit into this category. So would rusty rakes, hedge trimmers and snow blowers. It could be the only reason you’re holding onto that stuff is because you can’t simply throw it away. That is where Junk King Richmond can be a huge help.

When you set up a junk removal session, Junk King is going to dispatch a team of movers. Think of this hard-working crew as the ultimate problem solvers. Their goal is to get everything you want tossed out onto the back of their truck. When it comes to packing up a truck, the Junk King teams know no rivals. That matters because it is how they pack the truck that will impact what you ultimately pay. The less space your junk takes up, the lower the amount. You’ll know that the price is before the work begins.

Clearing out your shed of unwanted rubbish might be the big mission but you can put the Junk King crew on a bunch of little missions as well. They can just as easily load up any old furniture or electronics you want disposed off from the inside of the house. Junk King Richmond is also a company that wants to keep things green, even in the middle of winter. That’s why they’ll happily drop your stuff off at a recycling center or charity. It’s all about avoiding a trip to the landfill. Open up more storage in your backyard shed and the rest of your house with help from Junk King Richmond. It can happen today.

How To Add Value To Your Home Appraisal

We all hope our homes will increase in value. The only way to know for sure is to get a certified appraisal. Most folks think that an appraisal just covers the location and number of bedrooms and bathrooms. It actually goes a bit deeper, which is why you should consider taking some proactive steps to add value to your home appraisal. Here’s how to get it done:

Boost Your Curb Appeal

How “fresh” does your home look from the outside? A good power washing can work wonders as long as that washing doesn’t take off the paint. You can also boost your curb appeal by placing fresh flowers throughout the area. You don’t have to plant the flowers but place container gardens. Yes, you can take those containers with you when you move!

Around the back of the house, make sure the grill is clean, the lawn is mowed and the patio furniture cushions are wiped down.

Make a List of Improvements

What improvements have you made over the years? Have you repainted walls? Put down new carpeting? Remodeled a bathroom or kitchen? All of those improvements should be documented. You don’t have to show the appraiser “before and after” photos but you can provide permits and invoices for those projects.

Pull the Comps

There was a time when only real estate agents could obtain comparable prices (comps) for homes in your neighborhood. Now that information is readily available to you online. Those comps can provide a good baseline for your home’s value.

Don’t Be Pushy

When your appraiser shows up, greet them warmly, ask if they need anything and then let them do their thing. Those files you can provide at the end of their inspection. You don’t need to follow them around the house unless they ask for a tour.

Get Rid of Junk

You have to make sure your home is clean. Yes, that is totally cosmetic but it goes a long way towards adding value through your appraisal. In additional to traditional dusting and mopping you want to get rid of your junk. This would be all the clutter you would probably get rid of if you have movers and a truck. That is exactly what Junk King Richmond is going to provide. One session with Junk King Richmond is all it will take to get your home ready for an appraisal.
