Smart technology is easy to use and can save you money in the long run. Here is the tech to install in your home.

Isn't technology amazing in all the ways it's becoming intertwined with our lives, our households, and our processes? Take, for instance, the dazzling array of monitoring devices that are available. A few years ago, most homeowners could easily count two or three smoke detectors in their homes. Then, we started adding carbon monoxide monitors. Now we're onto water leak monitors, and maybe you're aware of even more monitoring devices that can save you money when you use them correctly.

Here are a few that you should look into as you move into the home you bought from Beavercreek homes for sale. Or, maybe you're getting ready to list your home. Smart technology can actually boost the price of your home, so our REALTORS® suggest you check it out.

Junk drawers can be frightening, but they don't have to be. Here's how you can keep them organized.

It's a bit of a paradox: You created that junk drawer so you'd have essential things close at hand and wouldn't have to rummage around for them. But now that drawer is such a horror of disorder and confusion that you're at the point of taking it out, dumping contents in the garbage, and starting all over. But wait! There is help, and we promise it won't take all day to sort out that drawer and get it shipshape.

Our REALTORS® are experts at advising you on how to buy or sell a home, but they're also tied into experts on furnishing and organizing homes to get maximum enjoyment from them. Do you need some advice on junk drawers or anything else to do with enjoying that dream home you chose from Beavercreek homes for sale? Let's start by reading these tips.

Dining Room Staging - Home Sellers - Wright-Patt Realty

The formal dining room might have been a must-have in the not-so-distant past, but it's rapidly losing its meaning in today's households. Maybe you never (or nearly never) use your dining room because you have a casual dining space in your kitchen or living room, yet you have the bones of a house with space devoted to a formal dining room. Don't be afraid to break with tradition and set that square footage to work for you. Here are our REALTORS® favorite ideas of what to do with your underutilized or empty dining room.

  • Try a Home Office
    Why work at the dining table when you can claim your unused dining room as your office. Whether your work from home, need a place to manage finances, or just need a quiet place for the weekend, this is a great spot to set up a desk and shelving, display the family activities calendar, and create storage for office files and mail. Most dining rooms don't have doors, but if you don't mind the idea, you can create a really nice open office or study.

Fireplace Tips for First-Time Owners - Wright-Patt Realty

A fireplace can bring comfort and warmth into your home. It can also bring tragedy and devastation if you are not careful with this fabulous feature. Our REALTORS® wish you and your family many memorable gatherings and happy holidays around the hearth which is why we strongly recommend adhering to these six fireplace safety tips.

  1. Professionally Clean & Service the Fireplace
    Chimney fires are a leading cause of home loss. Professional chimney sweeps will remove the creosote that causes chimney fires. This byproduct of combustion sticks to the chimney walls and requires special tools and training to remove effectively. Further, make sure that the fireplace is well-maintained. Promptly repair any damaged flues, doors, or other components that could pose a hazard to the home.
