Tips for Reducing Clutter in Your Home

 

Spring is almost here! With the arrival of Spring, some people like to do a good Spring cleaning! In preparation of that, you might want to take a look around and reduce some of the clutter that tends to build up. Below, House Logic offers some great tips for reducing clutter in your home. Thinking of selling? Reducing clutter in your home is a great way to get it ready for showings. Call us for more tips!

Tips for Reducing Clutter in Your Home

  1. Reduce Duplicates:  Sometimes you don’t need more than one of a certain type of item.  For those items that you do need multiples of, towels, for example, have some extras on hand, but don’t go overboard with too many.  House Logic suggests a good rule of thumb is having two per person.
  2. Keep Clutter from Expanding by reducing your storage space.
  3. Ignore Trends:  Fight the temptation to buy the latest and greatest gadget or decoration. Instead, purchase quality items that will last you a long time.
  4. A great way to keep things from piling up is to follow this rule:  When you buy something, get rid of something.
  5. Don’t purchase items that you will most likely use only once, or at most, very minimally.  Instead, see if you can borrow the item from someone.
  6. Get rid of paper clutter by going digital.  Many companies offer electronic billing or paperless statements.
  7. Buy less junk by avoiding bargain hunting.  Ask yourself if you really need that particular item, or if you really need one in every color just because it’s a “good deal”.
  8. Avoid piling things up on countertops.  Try to keep them free and clear!

All of these are great tips as we start to think about Spring and perhaps selling in the Spring Market.  Thinking of selling your homeContact us!  You can reach me by email at Shannon@ShannonAronson.com or by phone at 973.637.0004.

Montclair Art Museum

montclair art museum photo

Montclair Art Museum first opened in 1914. Located just 12 miles from NYC, the Montclair Art Museum is located in the same building in which it first opened, although it has now been expanded three times! The museum welcomes over 65,000 visitors each year. The museum is well known for its American and Native American art, its family and public programs, its exhibits, and its art school.

The Montclair Art Museum is known as being one of the country’s first art museums that primarily collected American art. It is also one of the first art museums dedicated to learning more about and gathering a significant Native American art collection. In 2010, the museum launched a Contemporary Art Program. In Spring 2015, the museum presented, “Come as You Are: Art of the 1990′s”. This is the museum’s largest collection of modern art to-date.

When the museum first opened, it began building its collection via gifts from prominent Montclair residents. The George Inness Gallery is dedicated to the works of Montclair landscape artist and resident George Inness, who spent the last nine years of his life in Montclair, where he was inspired by the local landscape.

The museum now has a collection of over 12,000 pieces. “The Museum’s superb holdings of traditional and contemporary American Indian art and artifacts, New Jersey’s largest, represent the cultural achievements in weaving, pottery, wood carving, jewelry, and textiles oindigenous Americans.” Learn more by visiting the Montclair Art Museum website.

The museum offers several public and family programs, serving everyone from toddlers to senior citizens. Coming up this weekend, 3/19, from 5-7 pm, the museum is offering “Building Montclair in Lego”. Participants will work with architect Stephen W. Schwartz to recreate specific Montclair buildings, through the use of over 60,000 Lego blocks. This event is presented by Montclair History Center and the Montclair Art Museum in conjunction with Building Blocks Workshops. LEGO is a trademark of the LEGO Group. Participants must register in advance online. The price is $35 per family, for up to 4 people. At least one person in the group must be an adult.

South Orange NJ Real Estate Trends – Listing vs. Sold Prices

If a move to or from South Orange NJ is in your future, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the current South Orange NJ real estate trends. Prior to looking at the specifics, it’s beneficial to have an understanding of the difference between a “listing price” and a “sold price”. The dollar amount a seller is asking for their home is called a “listing price”. On the other hand, the dollar amount a buyer is willing to pay for a home is referred to as a “sold price”. As we look at the chart below, we see the median listing price was fairly steady from March through mid-June 2016, then started to decline from July through September. It then raised slightly through December 2016 and hit a 12-month low in mid-January 2017. The median sold price, on the other hand, was at its lowest in March 2016 and has been rising steadily between August and February 2017, when it reached a 12-month peak.
