Spruce to Sell Now: Tips to Make Your Home Exterior Photo Friendly

Spring is around the corner and so is the busy flurry of houses being placed on the market. But what can you do to make yours stand out online and in person?

1. Stain or paint your front door. If your door is showing major sun fade or peeling, buyers will already have pre-conceived notions about the wear and tear of your home. If you have extra money, buy new brass or brushed nickle hardware for it as well.

2. Remove window screens. Ratty window screens definitely need to be replaced and homes look better in photos without them.

3. Freshen your landscaping with new mulch. Black is best to contrast with those new spring lime green leaves and blades of grass, or watering the brown mulch before a showing or photographing can be just as effective.

4. Consider planting spring bulbs or planters of pansies or other early spring varieties for color splash.

This backyard was professionally spruced up with
spring bulbs and mulch.

5. When in doubt, call a professional. Several landscaping companies can give you cost effective ideas to spruce up your landscaping to give your home that picture perfect feel.

B365 #7 Craving a Pizza Night? Head to Max's Place Downtown Bloomington

I recently took my son Henry and met a friend and her sweet little baby Sadie to a restaurant called Max's Place. Max's is located on the square next to Gratzie. The atmosphere is super friendly, large booths great for large parties, live music, good range of food and decent prices. They have a family dining area and a bar sectioned off in the back. They offer lots of options including vegan friendly. Their menu spans from eclectic salads, brick oven pizzas, panini sandwiches and calzones. They have 13 different micro brews and draft beers on tap in the bar. They also feature live entertainment and open mic night during the week.

B365#4 The Week of Chocolate Benefit Jan 29 - Feb 5

For tickets and more event information please visit the week of chocolate website. Below is a snapshot about the event:

What is the Week of Chocolate?
A week-long celebration of chocolate covered events benefiting the host agencies!
Options began fundraising with chocolate in 1997 with Chocolate Fest. Running for 11 years, Chocolate Fest treated a few thousand people to all the chocolate they could manage to eat in one evening. Hundreds of people were also involved as volunteers organizing, serving, entertaining and competing for the best chocolate creations.

In 2004, we expanded the week and created the Art of Chocolate at the Indiana University Art Museum. It's an elegant evening of chocolates and hors d’ oeuvres from the finest local chefs. Oliver Winery serves favorite wines and the Malibu Grill provides a steady stream of chocolate martini's. Uplifting jazz or classical music plays through the atriums while people enjoy the Options silent auction and hosted gallery tours.

Since 2007, we have invited other non-profits to join in on the chocolate fundraising theme. We host our sole fundraiser, the Art of Chocolate on Sunday and they throw events the other days of the week. Each organization keeps the money they raise and our partnership promotes everyone's events into a community- wide, week long celebration.
