From the desk of CHRISTY MITCHELL SHOWING NOTES: MINI FARM, MAXIMUM FUN

“Late summer I had one of those days where I’d been burning the candle at both ends (and I think the middle as well lol) but then I went to an afternoon showing with buyers and ended up having a blast! Just what I needed! Had so much fun on the mini farm with all the animals. Usually when I go to show houses I come home and tell my other half all the ‘next projects’ I want to do because it was ‘really cool in this house I just showed.’ After this showing, I came home saying ‘I want a mini donkey and some baby goats!’ Sometimes you just have to take a time out and enjoy God's creatures a little....they definitely changed my attitude that day!” – Christy Mitchell

HAPPY CLIENT “From my very special client that has turned into an even better friend! — feeling blessed.” – Candy Wood

“Congratulations Bianca J. on this cute little place closed on in Franklin!” – Anette Chrisley 6 | BHHSGREATSMOKYSREALTY.COM


THANKFUL FEELS LIKE HOME What does thankful feel like to you? For us, it’s the feeling we get when we reflect on what we get to do, every single day. Help our clients find homes to be thankful for. From our home to yours, Happy Thanksgiving. MOUNTAIN TIME IN THE SMOKYS |

SPOOKY HOUSES CAN BE GOOD BUYS

What makes a house look haunted? It could be the tumbleweed landscaping, paintless trim, broken steps or crooked roof. A house can also carry a stigma that makes buyers reluctant such as an untimely death within the home or a history of renters that could include hoarders, drug dealers, or other unsavory characters. But, it could also simply be ugly or poorly designed with a floorplan or features that don’t quite make sense. These are the homes that don’t sell well because buyers don’t appreciate subpar maintenance, bad design, and icky vibes – none of which has anything to do with the home’s structure. Any material problems can be torn out, repaired or replaced. Any stigma fades with time, which means the house for sale that gives you the creeps could turn out 8 | BHHSGREATSMOKYSREALTY.COM

to be a good investment. Would you be able to look past a home’s shortcomings to get a good deal? According to Realtor.com, nearly half of homebuyers wouldn’t touch a stigmatized or haunted house, but one in three buyers would purchase one if they could get a lower price. Fortunately, spooky houses are usually discounted and priced to sell with sellers that are willing to allow you to bring inspectors and contractors to address all your questions and what-ifs. Your financial commitment should be no more than the cost of the home plus the cost of renovations as long as they’re equal to or below the other home values in the area. Read more.


SET THE MOOD WITH LIGHTING Every space in your home has multiple functions requiring different lighting. Even within the same room, you’ll need multiple light sources to set the right mood for the time of day and the activities you have planned. Lighting comes in five major categories: • General purpose - any lighting fixture that is plugged into an ordinary socket, such as lamps or overhead fixtures. • Decorative - any lighting where the bulb can be seen, such as a chandelier, bathroom strip lighting, pendant lighting or sconces. • Track or Recessed - lighting that is usually a floodlight or spotlight in tracks or recessed fixtures. Specialty - unusual lights found in appliances or furniture such as cabinet lighting and appliance lighting. • Outdoor - lighting that is specially designed for use outdoors such as security lights, lamp post lights, porch or entry lights. The key to mood lighting is temperature. Lighting is either cool or warm, so the bulb you choose can put out yellow, soft white, bright white or natural daylight. Smart bulbs connect to mobile devices to be turned on and off, dimmed or brightened, or color changed with an app. Read more.

USING CO-SIGNERS AND GIFTS FOR YOUR DOWNPAYMENT Young homebuyers are having a rough time compared to their Boomer parents when they were first-time homebuyers. Today’s buyers have more student debt, slower wage growth and are building wealth later in life than their parents did at the same age. With so many hurdles to cross, your parents may be thinking of co-signing your mortgage loan to help you get into a home of your own. It’s a true act of love, but it doesn’t come without risk. According to The Lenders Network, a co-signer can only help if your income-to-debt ratio is too low, or if you have a shallow credit history. In a co-signing situation, the lender will use the lowest of the your parents and your credit scores, which will likely be yours. Adding your parents’ income will improve the ratio, but they’ll be taking on considerable risk on your behalf. Read more. MOUNTAIN TIME IN THE SMOKYS |

HOME FOR THE

HOLIDAYS “May your walls know joy; may every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibility.” – Mary Anne Radmacher-Hershey

At Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Great Smokys Realty, we believe there’s no place like home for the holidays. The holidays call upon us to reconnect with friends and family, reflect on the past year and renew our energy for the new year ahead. There’s no sugarcoating the fact that the holidays can be a hectic time. In the spirit of the season, we are sharing these tips and tricks for reducing stress so you can savor the gifts of friendship, food and fun this holiday season. 22 | 4SMOKYS.COM


A POTLUCK OF HOLIDAY LIFEHACKS Support local businesses by purchasing a few small gifts to have on the ready for unexpected guests or a last-minute gift exchange. Did you know hand sanitizer has an extra special use over the holiday season? When you inevitably get tree sap on your hands you can skip the frustration of soap and water, and use it to quickly remove the sticky substance. The alcohol in hand sanitizer breaks up tree resin in a matter of seconds. Cooking breakfast for the family? Fill a cleaned-out ketchup or squeeze bottle with pancake batter for perfectly round pancakes, no drips. Score extra credit points by carving your hot cakes with holiday-themed cookie cutters. Put your bread clips to good use! When wrapping gifts, apply the bread clip to the end of the tape each time you remove a piece. No more searching for the end just to dig up the next piece. You'll have a tab you can use to pull up the next piece of tape easily. Once unleashed from packaging, unwieldy wrapping paper can prove to be a source of frustration. No worries though, use empty toilet paper rolls to secure and store your leftover decorate wrappings. Broken ornament? Hold off on grabbing the vacuum as the glass can cause damage. Instead, make your way over to the pantry and grab a slice of bread. The spongy surface of the bread is perfect for picking up all the little glass pieces. We weren’t sure if we should include this one, but we verified it’s a thing. If you need to wash a bunch of potatoes at once, then just place them in the top rack of an empty dishwasher and set it to a quick rinse-only cycle (no soap of course!). Spend the next 11 minutes multi-tasking, and then unload a batch of clean potatoes. Since we’re talkin’ taters, if you are left with half-emptied bags of chips after a party don’t throw them out yet! You can de-stale them by tossing them in your oven for just a few minutes. Quick tip for pet owners out there: tire out your pooch before guests arrive, making it less likely there will be excessive jumping and barking when the doorbell rings. Last but not least, bake in time for self-care. Schedule a pedicure, massage or some other relaxing treatment to break up the fast pace of the holiday.

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

BED &BREAKFAST

FROM THE B&B CONSULTING BLOG

BED AND BREAKFAST HOLIDAYS:

The Perfect Accommodations for Out-of-Town Guests, Small Gatherings, & Much More Bed and breakfast holidays are a wonderful solution during the busiest times of the year. We'll look at reasons why this is the ideal option for guests. We'll end with a message for B&B innkeepers. FOR OUT-OF-TOWN HOLIDAY GUESTS If you're hosting more guests than your home has room to provide overnight accommodations, your local B&B may be just the place for them to stay. Bed and breakfast inns are more personal than large hotels. 28 | 4SMOKYS.COM

Moreover, the accommodations can still be luxurious and the complimentary gourmet breakfasts mean you won't have as many people to cook for (or dishes to clean). Conversely, your out-of-town guests do not feel awkward (asking for bath towels) or uncomfortable (sleeping on your couch, an air mattress, or even on the floor in a sleeping bag). FOR SMALLER HOLIDAY GATHERINGS Looking for a vacation getaway during the holidays? Whether it's a group of 2, of 4, or more people, bed and breakfast inns often host guests during the holidays. Be sure to book ahead to reserve your room(s).


Many restaurants stay open during the holidays to accommodate people who prefer to spend quality time with loved ones (rather than working in the kitchen). Guests can see a list of local dining options during the holidays. Some inns offer special holiday meals they can sign up for in advance. FOR A CENTRAL MEETING PLACE Today, it is common for people to have loved ones located in several different states. By choosing one central meeting place, this makes it more easy to spend time together during the holidays. For example, if relatives are in Maryland and Virginia as well as South Carolina and Georgia, then booking a North Carolina bed and breakfast holiday stay, in the Smokies, may make the most sense for everyone. Moreover, the burden is not on only one household to host that many guests. FEATURED SELECT REGISTRY MEMBER BED AND BREAKFASTS: • North Carolina • South Carolina • Georgia FOR A TRUE HOLIDAY VACATION There's something to be said for guests not having to do it all themselves. Being able to relax during the holidays means you can experience a true holiday vacation. No matter what your personal situation is during the holidays, consider staying at a bed and breakfast inn. You can be more focused on the people you love rather than if your own place is perfectly clean for guests. Caring about your loved ones (rather than hoping your own place makes the right impression on people). Celebrate the holidays!

B&B Consulting wishes you, yours, and your guests, a special holiday season.
