Wall-to-wall carpeting often gets a bad reputation. Yet, carpet is such a versatile type of flooring. Did you know that carpeting actually accounts for more than half of all flooring purchases every year? Carpet offers many advantages that other types of flooring do not. Here, we’ll show you some of the many advantages of a home with wall-to-wall carpet. Warmth Carpet is great in rooms like the bedroom, the family room and other rooms where you’d like to have something cozy under your feet while you’re typically walking barefoot. It’s much nicer to walk on a soft carpet than a cold floor with bare feet. Carpeting also makes a room appear more homey when you first walk into it, so it’s aesthetically pleasing. Installation and soundproofing Carpeting adds an extra layer of insulation between the floorboards of your home. Carpet will build a sound barrier between the upstairs and downstairs, for example. Carpet reduces noise from foot traffic in your home as well as blocks the transmission of sound. This creates a soundproofing of sorts between rooms with carpet and those rooms without it. Safety Carpet is much more slip resistant than hardwood or tile floors. If you have children, they’re at risk of taking falls. Wouldn’t it be better for them to fall on a soft carpet rather then a hard, cold floor? We think yes! Carpeting in playrooms and bedrooms is a great way to add a built-in safety feature to your home. Flexibility in decor Since carpet comes in so many different styles and colors, it’s certain that you can find a carpet that is perfect for any room. The possibilities are endless! The color and style of your carpet can be the foundation of the decorating scheme for a room. Low cost Carpet is low in cost compared to other tapes of flooring. It can be professionally installed at a price that won’t break the bank. Since the cost per square foot is lower, you can cover a bigger portion of your home with carpet on a tight budget. The allergy factor While carpeting is thought of to be a bad thing for allergies, some studies have shown that carpeting can actually help keep the air in your home cleaner. This is because it traps allergens. Of course, you must make sure your carpet is properly cleaned and maintained. Carpets are easy to maintain and care for. There are many proven carpet cleaning and stain removal methods available. Hide floor damage If a floor in your home is damaged, it may be more cost-effective to install a carpet rather than installing a completely new floor. It’s safe to cover a damaged floor with carpeting. Installing a wall-to-wall carpet in a room with an old floor can make the room appear like new.

Selling your home and relocating to a new residence may seem difficult. Fortunately, we're here to help you take the guesswork out of packing up your belongings and moving to your new house.

Here are three moving tips that every home seller needs to know.

1. Make Reservations with a Moving Company.

After you sell your house, you'll want to make reservations with a moving company as soon as possible. By doing so, you'll be able to ensure that you can get movers to your house before you need to have all of your belongings out of your residence.

Remember, the longer you wait to book a moving company, the less likely it becomes that you'll be able to find one in time for your upcoming move. But if you take a proactive approach to your move, you'll be able to book a moving company with plenty of time to spare.

Don't forget to shop around for a moving company too. This will ensure that you won't have to break your budget to employ friendly, professionally trained movers to help you transport your belongings from Point A to Point B.

2. Clean Out Every Room in Your House.

Although you've already devoted plenty of time and resources to keep your home clean and neat as you tried to sell it, you'll want to conduct a final sweep of every room before you move.

Cleaning out your entire home will enable you to double-check to ensure that you've packed up everything and reduce the risk that you'll leave something behind. Plus, doing a final sweep will enable you to locate and get rid of any forgotten items that you won't need at your new address.

Spend some time cleaning out your home, and ultimately, you'll be better equipped to pack up all of your belongings and avoid the risk of forgetting items hidden in your attic, basement or other areas of your house.

3. Disconnect All of Your Home Services.

Contact your electric utility provider, phone and internet services provider and other utility services companies to inform them about your upcoming relocation. This will enable you to cancel services or transfer them to your new address.

When it comes to disconnecting services, be sure to give your service provider as much notice as possible. For instance, calling your internet services provider to cancel your services on the day of your move could be problematic, as you may need to return equipment.

However, if you reach out to a service provider at least a few weeks before your move, you can plan accordingly.

Furthermore, if you ever have concerns or questions about moving, your real estate agent may be able to help you. This professional can offer moving recommendations and tips and might even be able to put you in touch with expert movers in your area as well.

Start getting ready for your upcoming move now, and you can streamline the process of vacating your current residence and relocating to a new house.

Waterfront ranch style house on fully recreational Hamilton Reservoir. There is plenty of living and storage space in this 2000 sq. ft. home. Open living room/dining room area has a cathedral ceiling and large brick fireplace with an excellent view of the lake. The finished lower level has a family room with a fireplace and a dedicated space for a home office. The house sits on 1.6 acres and has 175' of lake frontage. A new oil furnace was installed in 2017 and a water treatment system in 2015. The kitchen and baths were also renovated in the past few years. The lake facing deck expands the entire length of the house and has additional space for grilling and out door dining. The land slopes down to the lakefront where there is a newer dock where you can enjoy boating and swimming. The house is priced below the assessed value as some maintenance items need to be done. A truly rare opportunity for a large private lot, 175 feet of lake frontage, and a home with a 2 car garage.
