Spring Home Maintenance-Remerica Hometown Realtors

The springtime selling season isn't too far off which means it's time to get your home in top shape for the busiest part of the real estate sales year. Our REALTORS® know a thing or two about getting homes ready for the sales season, and with so many Ann Arbor homes for sale this year, we can help you get ready by offering some useful spring home maintenance tips.  

  • Inspect Your Home's Exterior
    For most of us, colder months mean more time indoors staying warm and less time outside doing routine maintenance and outdoor home projects. While it's easy during the spring and summer to make quick visual inspections of your home while you're already out and about, the wintertime means more of that routine inspection goes unnoticed.

    Start your spring by giving your home's exterior a thorough visual inspection. Take note of places where caulk or seals have weathered, look for places where critters may have made winter homes, and be mindful of places that need cleaning or additional attention. Keep your thoughts written down and make a to-do list for when the weather warms up sufficiently.

Ann Arbor Bookstores-Remerica Hometown REALTORS

At Remerica Hometown Realtors, we're happy to say our REALTORS® do everything by the book. Some of our expert REALTORS® can give you chapter and verse of the entire Ann Arbor market. They can even provide a quick primer in finding your way around Ann Arbor, including these six great book nooks. 

  1. Literati Bookstore – 124 E. Washington St.
    An independent bookstore of Literati's caliber is very nearly a necessity in a college town like Ann Arbor. Host of book and subscription clubs, author events, panels, discussions, storytimes for children, and more, Literati is a bookstore with quirks and character. Shop for bargain books, staff favorites, bestsellers, and many more.

    Literati is a relative newcomer to Ann Arbor, having been in business only since 2013, but it has clear plans to have a long shelf life.

Spring Home Bidding-Remerica Hometown REALTORS

Home buyers in the Ann Arbor area should get ready for a competitive environment when it comes to buying a home this year. Ann Arbor homes for sale are in demand, and as a consequence, it might help you to prepare for a bidding war. While it's impossible to predict what might happen, having enough options in place could give you an edge in a tight market.

  1. Loan Pre-Approval
    This is the first step to take regardless of whether you expect a bidding war. Buyers see pre-approval as a sign that the buyer is serious, as do agents. Our REALTORS® can suggest mortgage brokers who can help you through this process.

    Remember that pre-approval does not mean you've been granted a mortgage. It means that a lender has looked at your financial situation and has given you an estimate of the maximum loan amount for which you could qualify.

Are you ready for a night of entertainment? Head on down to the Michigan Theater and enjoy one of their many amazing events throughout the month of March. Film screenings, comedy specials, public speaker showcases, and more are featured in this historic Ann Arbor venue. Our REALTORS® have attended many shows at this performing arts center and encourage you to view their calendar of events to discover the amazing public speakers, concerts and plays that have made this theater a cherished piece of Ann Arbor nightlife.

History of the Michigan Theater

Established in 1928, the Michigan Theater has entertained the families of Ann Arbor for nearly a century. As a shrine for the performing arts, it's future was uncertain in 1979 when The Butterfield Theatre Corporation moved out of the theater. Thankfully, the Michigan Theater Foundation was quickly formed as a non-profit organization, and they saved the structure from demolishment.

Since then, the foundation has enabled the Michigan Theater to continue showcasing the arts in all its forms. From live comedy and music to engaging stage productions and more, the Michigan Theater has become a treasured gem of Ann Arbor history and culture.
