Introducing the all new Windsor 2.0!

Windsor

No matter what floorplan it may be, over time it will become outdated and need revamping. Starting at 3,100 square feet, the all new Windsor 2.0 is a perfect example of how tweaking an old floorplan can drastically improve it. This home features a gorgeous open concept Gourmet Kitchen and Family Room while also maintaining a traditional formal Living and Dining Room. The cascading front staircase is an enchanting spectacle upon entering the home.

Upstairs, the Owner’s Suite, with tray ceiling, features a luxurious Spa Bath, two large walk-in closets and an optional Sitting Room.  Three spacious bedrooms and laundry room complete the second floor.

Kick Clutter to the Curb

3d_3d_011_9408_Crystal_Oak_Lane_87308

Realtors, direct marketing or even word of mouth are just a few effective ways of selling your home. All of these, however, are essentially rendered useless if your home is unorganized and cluttered.

The most cost-effective way to prepare a home for sale is to clean it up! Erasing the mess helps prospects see the largest square footage, the best attributes of the home, and lets them picture living there themselves.

Here are the best tips to get your house staged and ready for sale:

  1. Don’t get overwhelmed; start small. Organizing your entire house can be daunting at times, but it’s important to take your time and get the process started. Start with a junk drawer then move to that forgotten spare bedroom with all of the armoires.
  2. Make the time. It hardly sounds appealing after working all week to spend your free time cleaning out old closets. However, if you block out even 2-4 hours per weekend, it will take the burden of completing this huge task and break it into more obtainable objectives.
  3. Put it in its place. Clutter happens most often when items in your home do not have a proper place. If you cannot find a proper place for something, chances are you don’t need it. Evaluate its purpose and continue on your mission.
  4. Setting the stage. Once you’ve cleared out the clutter, it’s time to show off your home. While it may be difficult, emotionally, removing family photos and magnets from the fridge will give your home a clean look and allow potential buyers to visualize themselves in the space. Arrange furniture in a precise, simple way that shows off the space tactfully.

5 Ways to Enjoy Your Snow Day

snowman7

While we have enjoyed a mild winter thus far, winter weather is finally here and it’s time to slow down, cozy up and take it easy. Here is a list of activities to keep you entertained while you’re hunkered down for the imminent snow storms ahead:

  1. Watch old movies: This might seem obvious, but take the time to reminisce with your friends and family to movies you used to enjoy. There’s nothing wrong with getting a little nostalgic. Oh, and don’t forget the popcorn!
  2. Play board games: Turn off the TV and dust off that Monopoly board. Nothing brings a family together like some friendly competition and conversation.
  3. Read a book: Remember to take some time for yourself in the chaos of a snowstorm. Crack open that book that you’ve been meaning to read and nestle in for some quiet one-on-one time.
  4. Clean house: If you’re feeling restless and productive, knock out the cleaning so you won’t have to when it’s nice out, and yes, even the microwave.
  5. Go outside! : Take advantage of all the beauty that comes with a snowstorm. Have a snowball fight, build a snowman or just take a walk. Bring your camera!

From all of us here at Mid-Atlantic Builders, enjoy your snow days and stay safe!

Lowest HERS Rating for Mid-Atlantic Builders Ever

Mid-Atlantic HERS score 42

Mid-Atlantic Builders homes are continuing to save new homeowners lots of money on their utility bills, even during these cold winter months! Just a few weeks ago, we received news that our most recently constructed home in Parkside received a HERS score of 42!

The HERS Index measures a home’s energy efficiency. HERS scores range from 130 (the least energy efficient home) to 25 (the most energy efficient home). The lower the HERS score, the more energy efficient the home. Typical builders score between 85 and 100, efficient builders score between 65 and 85, and platinum builders score below 50 on the HERS Index.

This all new, low HERS score equates to BIG savings for our new homeowners, as the Mid-Atlantic Builders’ Energy $mart program drastically lowers utility bill costs. Our homes are up to 80% more efficient than a 20-year old home, and 50% more efficient than a standard new home. Higher efficiency leads to lower monthly costs for you! Our homeowners save up to 60% on their utility bills – just think what you could do with all of those extra savings.

To learn more about maximizing the savings and high efficiency associated with the Mid-Atlantic Energy $mart program, stop by one of our Sales Centers today or visit us online!

Sophisticated Designing for the Holidays

The holidays are a time for family and with that comes the chaos of holiday visitors as well. This year, to help you navigate the season with poise and grace, we’ve put together a list of helpful tricks to make sure your home is holiday ready.

  1. Create a Simple and Cozy Living Space — Clear out the clutter from your Family Room and add simple touches like candles in groupings on your end tables. Also set out candy or seasonal nuts to appease guests, when the holiday feast may take a little longer than expected.
  2. Set the Atmosphere — Keep away from overhead lighting and stick to a softer glow from lamps. Make a holiday playlist too, to offer some ambiance to the background of conversations.
  3. Add Holiday Charm to the Guest Room — Make sure you have plenty of extra blankets and spice up the holiday spirit with festive towels, throw pillows and candles. Give them an impressive place to stay that they’ll never forget!
  4. Indoor Decor — For clean and simplistic looking holiday decorations, pick a theme and continue from there. Remember, it’s your house, so dress it the way you want, but it will help you stay focused if you have a consistent theme throughout your entire house.
  5. Don’t Forget Outside — There’s no better welcome for your guests when they first arrive than festive lighting! Simple touches like a wreath on the door or candles in the window are also a great way to get everyone into the holiday spirit!

We hope these tips will help make your home merry and bright! Happy Holidays from Mid-Atlantic Builders!

Clean Oven, Tasty Results

ovenCleaner

The holidays are one of the hardest times of the year on your kitchen. Between roasting the Thanksgiving turkey and baking cookies for Santa, your oven takes a beating. It’s important to keep it clean not only so your cookies don’t taste like meat, but to prevent potential dangerous fires. Six percent of all household fires come from failure to clean appliances, according to the National Fire Protection Association’s November 2015 report.

Take these steps to ensure the cleanest and safest oven you can, without all those harsh chemical cleaners:

  1. Make a baking soda paste with 1/2 cup of baking soda and three tablespoons of water to get the optimal consistency.
  2. Spread a thin layer of paste throughout the entire interior surface of your oven.
  3. Let it sit overnight or at least 12 hours.
  4. Wipe out the oven with a damp rag, and then use a spatula to scrape off any hardened areas.
  5. Spray white vinegar on remaining baking soda and allow it to react, causing a foaming effect.
  6. Give one final wipe down and enjoy your clean oven!
