Did you know that the average renter owns around $30,000 in possessions? Think about what you own—of course there’s your clothes, books, TV, DVD’s—computer—the items you use every day. But what if you have cherished family heirlooms, furniture, pictures, jewelry--valuables you might consider precious, even priceless.

Does your house need painting? It’s smart to plan for it, whether you do it yourself or have it done by a professional. The aesthetics and beauty of your home are important—for your enjoyment, and as a means to attract potential buyers. Because your home’s overall appearance contributes to its perceived condition and value. Another crucial benefit of painting is that it protects windows and wood trim from peeling and deterioration. And that helps prevent long term problems and costly repairs. So, plan in advance for this project. The benefits far outweigh the costs.
