Low-Cost Home Updates - CB Prime Properties

As we do our best to make the most of our time at home, many of us are looking for inexpensive ways to spruce up our space. From spring cleaning and touching up your curb appeal to small interior decor updates, there are a lot of creative ways to update your home without breaking the bank. 

Here are a few fun projects that our real estate agents have tackled over the past few weeks.  

  1. Rearrange the Furniture
    This is a great project because it doesn't take much time and won't cost you anything. Rearranging the furniture in your living room, bedrooms, or even the dining room can create a whole new look. Sometimes, just changing the angle of certain pieces can make a big difference, so go ahead and experiment!

    Best of all, if you decide you don't like the way it looks, you can always just put it back.

Washing Machine Cleaning Tips - CB Prime Properties

There are spots in every house we don't really think about cleaning very often. For most people, the washing machine is one of those places. The inside of the washing machine can harbor offensive odors, mold, or mildew. None of those things are good for your clothes or your washer! For Albany homes for sale, thoroughly cleaning is a must. You won't want to risk anything that could leave a bad smell and bad impression with buyers. Here's how to get your machine sparkling clean in no time.­­

Front-Load Washing Machines

  1. Make sure the washing machine is empty.
  2. Remove any visible debris and pet hair from the tub.

Home WiFi Tips - CB Prime Properties

If you're anything like our real estate agents, there's an excellent chance you will find yourself working from home a little more than usual this year. And, if you have children at home, that means greater competition for precious internet resources so that everyone can get their work, homework, and, of course, shopping is done on time. As they say, there's no time like the present to make sure your Wi-Fi is up to the task. 

Optimizing Your Wi-Fi

  • Check Your Plan. It may be time to increase the speed of your service. If you're streaming a lot of videos, participating in videoconferences, or playing games on two-four computers, you'll want to have somewhere between 12-25Mbps. Remember that the more devices you have, the more speed you will need.
