    My husband and I are extremely pleased with Reilly! You team, Bruce and David, are masters. They came each day when they said they would and worked diligently, and I was pleasantly surprised that they were quiet and didn't listen to radios. Bruce is a jewel; he was so patient with me and explained answers to all of my questions."

  • Home Improvement Projects that Increase Home Value

    Whether trying to sell your home, rent it out, or just continue to love it, it is always a good time to take on small improvement projects. Simply repainting a room can brighten a room and make it a more enjoyable place for your family to spend their time. Updating your home to a more modern feel makes it feel more interesting to potential buyers and renters. A gallon of interior latex paint (~$30) and an afternoon turns a living room into a lounge and a TV room into a home theater.

    Some advice taken from this article from the DIY Network:

    "Don’t think you can escape the issue by painting the walls white. "Too often, homeowners think it’s best to paint the house all the same color, but there is no pizzazz with white walls," says Realtor Lynn Anderson of ZipRealty, East Bay, California. "Soft, muted colors such as pale green or muted beige with white baseboards can still be neutral while greatly improving the look and feel of each room."

    You should think about making a room pop and express itself and your style. When showing a house, it displays the power of the room to express, even if its something that the potential buyer doesn't like. They can always take it down and put up something they like but a boring room does nothing to inspire and spark the imagination.
