Are You Pondering a Pond?

It may not have been the hottest (or the driest) summer in the Northeast Kingdom, but it was still a beautiful one. It was also one of the busiest in real estate we’ve seen in the last few years – and it’s still going strong! Recently, the team at Tim Scott Real Estate has listed several properties with private ponds. What better way to spend Vermont summers at home with your own place to swim, fish, or just relax by the water?

350 Partridge Lane, Danville


This country home on 19+/- acres has a private setting but is just a few miles to Danville village. The expansive back deck overlooks the backyard and pond. Surrounded by perennials, this home is perfect for those who love to entertain!

299 Maple Lane, Danville

Love to play outside? Here is a 34.5+/- property with so much to offer! Not only does it have a pretty stone landscape pond near the spacious home, there is a larger swimming pond on the lower property. Next to the big pond is a tree house that is solar powered. Fire-pits, patio, deck, sauna, hot tub, pool, fields, barn, outbuilding and close to LV Rail Trail!

1353 Hines Place, Walden

Here is a property for the nature enthusiast! Land borders Steam Mill Brook Wildlife Management Area - over 10,000 acres of state owned land! Solar-powered home is on 20.5+/- and has a large spring-fed pond. Large outbuildings for your toys!

651 Sutton Road, Wheelock

This well-maintained ranch style home is on a 5.3+/- acre lot, faces a pretty view, has lots of perennials, and a perfect little pond in the backyard. Sliding doors from the kitchen area lead to a rear deck which makes for easy outdoor eating. 

263 Bedor Lane, St. Johnsbury

The pond on this property is located next to the 4-stall horse barn and is just one of the many appealing features. Colonial home faces an amazing mountain view, has an attached 2-car garage, a riding ring, on 31.44+/- acres!

Consider Resurfacing Rather Than Remodeling

It’s inevitable. Homes get out dated. As décor trends go through their cycles, what was once a modern, hip feature (such as avocado-colored appliances) becomes what a home buyer will consider a flaw.
 
When a consulting with home home owners, Tim Scott Real Estate can help decide what improvements will help the property sell and be the most cost effective. However, everyone’s budget is different for prepping their home. Typically, remodeling the kitchen is not a realistic or cost effective. Considering that kitchens are a common top priority for home-buyers, there are less expensive and less invasive ways to update a kitchen - consider resurfacing and painting.
Recently, a TSRE client took it upon themselves to do a transformation to their home. For the kitchen they resurfaced the countertops, painted the walls and the brick, and updated the light fixture. The bathroom got a resurfaced sink and tub, new faucet and new paint. The results are fantastic! Check out the entire listing here.
 
While there are do-it-yourself kits available for resurfacing counter tops, our client hired Let’s Face It out of Derby, VT to do the project for them. They were very pleased with the results, and the efficient and timely manner in which the company worked. You can contact Let’s Face It at (802) 673-0012 or email letsfaceitvt@gmail.com.
 
 

5 Tips to Avoid Moving Day Panic

Whether you’ve lived in your home for a year or sixty years, have a large house or a small apartment, moving day can be a tremendous chore if you’re not prepared. It’s truly amazing how your possessions can seem to multiply as you start to pack them. If you are selling your home, your house has to be “broom clean” prior to closing. If you put off moving to the last minute, it can be a very stressful experience. Here are some tips to consider before you reach the point of moving day panic.

 

1. Start the Day You Decide to List Your House.

One of the very first tips the team at Tim Scott Real Estate will give you, once you decide to sell your home is to remove excess clutter. This is one of the most beneficial rules of staging – plus it gets you started on the packing process. Go through closets, cabinets, basements, garages and if you’re not using it - either pack it, donate it, or toss it.

 

2. Make Some Meals Ahead of Time.

Once you’re in the nitty-gritty of packing up to move, often you are too tired to cook – plus you may have already packed away pots and pans. A few weeks prior, make some meals you can freeze such as lasagna, pot pies, or casseroles. You’ll save money (and maybe a few calories) by avoiding continuous take-out.

 

3. It’s Going to Take Longer Than You Think.

Consider what you own, the amount of furniture, etc… if you figure it will take two days to get everything packed up, do yourself a favor and add a day or two to your estimate. It’s better to give yourself too much time than not enough.

 

4. Have a Little Help from Your Friends.

Make sure to recruit help! That’s what friends and family are for, right? Ask a few extra people in case it turns out someone can’t make it that day. Don’t forget to tell them there will be food and beer too…and don’t forget to provide it! Pizza is always a crowd pleaser – or perhaps one of the meals you cleverly made ahead of time.

 

5. Call in the Professionals

Worried that your well intentioned, yet clumsy brother-in-law might do more harm than good? Call a professional moving company. Allen and Coles Moving Systems out of Lebanon, NH offer a full range of moving services. (866) 257-2114

Also, if you’re feeling that you’ll end up with a good pile of stuff that needs to be tossed, consider calling Fred Harris of EZ Trash and schedule for a trailer to be there or for him to come get it with his dump truck. He’s very reliable and reasonable rates. EZ Trash (802) 748-0144 or easytrash@gmail.com
