Landscaping Styles - Buy a House - CB Prime Properties

When you're buying a house, you aren't just buying the structure. You're also buying the shrubs, trees, grass, flowers, sidewalks, yard, and water features on the property. Landscaping is an important part of the functionality and overall look of a home. The style of landscape is often determined by factors such as your personal tastes, the style of your house, functional needs, and environmental considerations. You may also want to consider the openness of a property and how you can incorporate elements that fit your personal preferences and improve the appearance of the home.

When choosing a landscape style, there are several factors to consider:

  • Do you want a low-maintenance landscape or are you someone who enjoys taking care of the garden or yard?
  • What is the current condition of the yard?
  • What activities are you planning to use the yard for?
  • Do you have children and pets to consider?
  • Which landscape style reflects your style?
  • Does the landscape style complement the home?

Running Trails - Catskill Region - CB Prime Properties

Training for a 5k run is rewarding for so many reasons, especially when you call the Catskills home. In addition to working toward a worthy goal, training in the Catskills provides the perfect excuse to enjoy all of the outdoor beauty that the region has to offer close to Syracuse homes for sale.

As our real estate agents and so many residents know, the region is home to an endless collection of trails offering everything from relaxing, leisurely strolls to challenging uphill climbs with spectacular views. Find the ideal destination to train for your next 5k run, with our guide to five great parks and trails in the Catskills Region.

  • Andes Rail Trail – 266 Depot St., Andes, NY 13731
    Andes homes for sale put you in the heart of hiking country, with trails for every experience level including the popular Andes Rail Trail. The trail starts with a relatively flat 2-mile loop, with scenic views of the mountains and countryside. Around the halfway point of the loop, you can pick up the Bullet Hole Spur hiking trail, which will add another 2.2 miles round-trip.

Spring Stand Out - Sell a Home - CB Prime Properties

Even in the toughest times for buying, potential homebuyers will have other homes under consideration. Spring is a particularly busy time for home sales, so even if your house is one of a few for sale near you right now, by the time daffodils bloom, other "For Sale" signs might be popping up too. Our real estate agents are experts at helping home sellers stand out in a busy market. You can get a head start on making a lasting impression on potential buyers with a mix of good home maintenance and imagination. 

  • Fixing to Sell Your Home 
    This isn't the time to consider a serious renovation, but if you have repairs you've put off or are ongoing, finish those before placing your house on the market. Apply a new coat of paint in areas that are scuffed or peeling. Especially if the need for repair is obvious, this can turn buyers away from even a modestly priced home. If your house needs extensive repairs, it may be better as an investment property than for a family to move in.
