RV Home Away From Home - Wright-Patt Realty

Many people are avoiding air travel these days and are accessing vacation destinations by driving. Camping in parks has ramped up in popularity, and for a growing segment of vacationers, that has meant buying or renting a recreational vehicle. But before you go out and plop your money down, there are some things to think about:

  • What type of RV? There are four basic types to choose from, and they vary widely in price.
  • Should you buy used or new?
  • Will you feel comfortable operating the RV?
  • Are you prepared for the cost outlay with RVing? It may be cheaper than owning a house, but it will still cost you.

Our REALTORS® have some advice for would-be RVers. Read on.

Fall Family Fun - Beavercreek, OH - Wright-Patt Realty

Halloween is almost here, and that means it's time for some fall-themed family fun. This includes carving pumpkins, going on hayrides, and finding the area's best corn mazes!

We love the holiday season in the Beavercreek area! Our REALTORS® always enjoy exploring local festivals and area pumpkin patches so they can share their best finds with new residents. Here are a few that they recommend visiting this year. 

  • Lucas Bros. Fall Fest 2020: 3229 Ferry Rd., Bellbrook, OH 45305
    Lucas Bros. Fall Fest is a fun, family-friendly event that runs every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from September 25th through November 1st. Some of the activities you'll find here include a pick-your-own pumpkin patch, farm animal interactions, and a free straw maze. If you have some time to spare, plan to take a hayride through the woods, and get lost in the almost 5-acre corn maze. 

    This picturesque farm is a short drive from Kettering, Springboro, and the surrounding Dayton area. It's also not far from some of the best Bellbrook homes for sale.

DIY or Pro - Home Remodeling - Wright-Patt Realty

Doing home improvements yourself can help you save a lot of money and increase your home's value. Homeowners with Beavercreek homes for sale often ask our REALTORS® which types of jobs they should do to help them get more for their property. The answer? It depends. Unless you're a contractor, plumber, or electrician, some improvements should be performed by professionals.

Things to Take into Consideration Before Going DIY or Professional

Significant improvements can be costly. One of the main reasons homeowners consider doing projects themselves is budget. Putting your own time and energy into them can be well worth it, but it can also decrease the value of your home or even be dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. Sure, YouTube videos and DIY articles can help, but some things should be left to professionals, such as electrical work, HVAC, and major plumbing projects.
