Why Choose JtRealty Lakefront to Mountainside? The choice is clear.

JtRealty showed the highest percent increase in market share of all real estate companies in the Mt Washington Valley in 2011, going from 13% market share to 20%, an increase of 50%!

In 2011 JtRealty sold the first house over $1,000,000 in over 2 years: a custom trailside home at Bearfoot Creek in Bartlett. This community has proven its value throughout the recession.

JtRealty agents are consistently in the top tier of the White Mountain Board of Realtors, giving you a level of professionalism that excels in this industry.

JtRealty dominates the Luxury Home market, participating in more than 50% of the sales over $525,000 in 2011.

holiday season approaches, those animated reindeer or waving elves on the front lawn might need a tune-up. Spray lubricant can make sure that these animated creatures move as they’re supposed to. “You don’t want reindeer that look like they have arthritis,” Claar says. Some lubricant on the base of the garage door makes sure that it won’t stick to the bottom of the pavement underneath, potentially saving it from some unsightly damage if the garage door faces the street. “Up to 30 percent of homeowners’ front exterior space is taken up by garage doors,” Claar says. “It’s important to take care of them.”

ANGLED PAINT BRUSH: A new angle on painting Painting is a hassle. Painting the front porch railing, exterior trim or even backyard deck can seem even more daunting. But with the proper paintbrush, the perfect DIY exterior paint job is within reach. Richmond, Va., homeowner Sherry Petersik – who, along with her husband John, documents home repair adventures on the popular blog Young House Love – says that painting doesn’t have to be a hassle for homeowners who rely on a short-handled angled paintbrush. Petersik prefers the 2-inch variety. The tool provides her with far greater control than flat paint brushes. And it allows her to reach into odd, tight places. When painting exterior trim on windows, she gets far less paint on the windows, which she would have to scrape off with a razor blade later. “A lot of people are afraid to buy houses for some very superficial reasons,” Petersik says. “They don’t like a certain paint color, for instance. If people know just how simple it can be to fix these superficial things with the right

tools, they’d be more willing to buy some of these wonderful homes that are out there.” Nothing livens up a drab exterior like a fresh coat of paint. With this tool, Petersik can spruce up exterior trim, deck railings and her outdoor furniture. She estimates that where it once took her four hours to paint trim, she’s now cut that time in half thanks to her angled paintbrush. “People tend to make painting a bigger deal in their heads than what it has to be,” Petersik says. “We’ve probably painted 30 rooms in the last few years… When you have the right tools, painting doesn't have to be a hassle at all.”

3 Tools for an Exterior PRESSURE WASHER: The power of water


] Continued from page 36 ^

complete an average job than does a typical garden hose. Cameron recommends using a pressure washer to remove the gray that builds up along concrete porches over the years. It can also remove green mossy patches that collect on house siding. Cameron does advise homeowners to stay 12 to 16 inches away from their homes when using a pressure washer to clean siding; the fan tip gives a wider swatch of water when the user stands farther away, which allows people to clean more area in less time. Homeowners can also turn to pressure washers to brighten faded pavers, cinder block walkways and deck surfaces. Basically, any surface rugged enough to handle the pressure could benefit from a quick pressure wash, Cameron says. He says that pressure washers that provide 1,800 pounds of pressure per square inch (psi) are best for washing down a house exterior.

When Jason Cameron needs to provide a quick boost to a property’s exterior, he turns to one tool: the pressure washer. And Cameron knows of what he speaks. This licensed contractor is host of two shows on the DIY Network, “Desperate Landscapes” and “Man Caves.” He knows what’s easy and what isn’t. “The pressure washer is such an important tool,” Cameron says. “There are so many applications for it. Unlike a regular garden hose, which won’t give you the pressure you need, you can use a pressure washer to remove dirt and grime and buildup from just about any exterior surface. And that’ll leave your home looking so much brighter.” The pressure washer is also an economical tool when it comes to using water. Cameron says that it uses 70 percent less water to

Flower Power Everything in bloom: The updated floral look moves outside the traditional realm of upholstery and wallpaper into tiling and household fixtures. By COURTENAY EDELHART CTW Features


loral prints in the home are hit or miss: At best, they are the perfect complement to the color palette in a room. At worst, they can conjure images of shawl-draped little old ladies setting teacups on doilies. But florals have made a comeback, and today’s best prints do not date homes. They’re fresh and modern but retain nature-inspired charm. “I know people are a little hesitant because they’re thinking of grandma’s flowers and they’re not sure where to use them. But you really should open your mind and see what’s out there because

what’s out there is really different,” says Renae Ahrens, managing director for Creation Baumann U.S.A. The upscale Swiss fabric maker has a new collection, “Silent Garden,” in which florals are prominent. Cristin Bisbee Priest, an interior designer based outside San Francisco, says floral patterns didn’t go out of fashion, but their style and display has evolved. “The head-to-toe saturation that some of the older generation grew up with may be a bit much for most people, but I do see a resurgence, even in wallpaper,” she says. Among the unexpected places florals again are popping up are kitchen and bath fixtures, rugs and doorknobs. One display that never really went out of style is drawings of botanicals in artwork, designer Priest says. “Drawings are a great way to add a floral presence in a subtle way, and it’s timeless,” she says. Plus, they don’t have to be expensive. “You can get a botanical book and make color photocopies and frame those, or frame postcards,” Priest says. Interior designer Betty Lou Phillips is the owner of Interiors by BLP in Dallas. She says today’s floral patterns have an edgier look than the stereotypical English garden scenes most people imagine. “The palette is a little bit softer than the frumpy realistic colors that

we used to see, and the depictions are more stylized, more harmonious,” Phillips says. “They might be overscale; they might be asymmetrical. Maybe a flower applique on the back of a chair that’s a little bit to the left or the right.” To keep from overwhelming a room, mix floral prints with solids or other patterns, such as stripes, Phillips suggests. Even men can flirt with the garden look, depending on the color and the type of graphic. “Some of the Asian floral prints are a little more masculine,” she says. A small piece as an accent – a throw or pillow, for instance – can give a plain room some pizzazz, Ahrens says. “Think of fashion, where you’re wearing a solid black outfit, but then you add a patterned scarf,” she says. “It really gives it that ‘wow’ look, and you can make a room pop the same way.” But Ahrens likes big statements, too, such as floral curtains and sofas. “Just think of how you feel when you’re outside sitting in a garden,” she says. “The light, the colors, the smell; it changes your whole mood. Why not feel like that in your home? ... We all need some color, something bold in our lives to cheer us up.” There’s a practical consideration, too, Ahrens says. “Patterns are a lot more forgiving. A footprint or a child’s grape juice – just, you know, life – it doesn’t stand out as much.” © CTW Features
