Moving houses signifies a new chapter in your life. The end of memories in one address and the promise of newer and more beautiful ones in your new abode. And while this is a very exciting time, there is also the inevitable stress that accompanies the process – the main stressor being the moving process. If you found yourself nodding in agreeance to the previous sentence, this blog post is for you! We have put together a list of tips and tricks below to help make your move a little more stress-free, hopefully allowing you to enjoy the process and focus on the excitement of the new chapter ahead. Let’s dive right in!

The first tip we have for you is to start early. You may think that packing up your home may only take a day because, well, it’s just throwing items in boxes, right? Wrong. Even the most skilled and experienced packers find that the process always takes longer than they think. So we suggest you start packing up your home about two to three weeks prior to moving day. This will allow you to sort through your items in a thoughtful way by donating things that no longer serve you and throw away items that cannot be reused by someone else, ensuring that you are not hauling unnecessary items to your new home. We also recommend starting with packing items that you use least, such as books, china and holiday decorations. 

Our next tip is to have a system to help you stay organized. You want to be sure to mark (with a star or some sort of symbol of your choosing) the boxes that have the items you know you will need first, such as clothing, kitchen items, toiletries and towels. On that same note, if you are looking to save a little bit of money, try finding used moving boxes as opposed to purchasing new ones. Next, it is important to understand that just because the box is large, that does not mean that you have to fill it with a bunch of heavy items. Try using the larger boxes for lighter items to ensure that the box does not weigh a hundred pounds or break during the moving process, as that can be a huge burden and slow everything down.

When it comes to clothing, may people think you have to take the items off the hangers, fold the clothing, pack the clothing and pack the hangers separately. Not only does this take a lot of time initially, it also creates more work for you at your new home to hang everything back up. Instead, keep everything on the hangers, cover with a large trash bag, and put them in the back of your car for transport. It will save a lot of time – which is a hot commodity when moving! Our last piece of advice is to have a plan for moving day. Make sure that you have all your boxes labeled on both sides so you can always see what is contained in each, and have it all organized for the movers when they arrive. This will help to ensure a stress-free and more enjoyable moving day for everyone involved!

Let’s Talk Radon!

by Nancy Heim-berg

Since January is National Radon Action Month, we wanted to dedicate an entire blog post to this topic. Our hope is to educate you on ways to keep you and your loved ones safe from this serious health risk that, sadly, is responsible for more than 20,000 American deaths each year. What is radon you ask? Well that is a great place to start! Radon, which seeps up from the ground and dissolves into the air, is an odorless, tasteless and invisible gas that can prove to be very harmful when exposed to large quantities. As one of the leading causes of lung cancer deaths in America amongst nonsmokers, it is important to be educated on the ways to detect radon and fully understand the steps you can take to ensure the safety of your home from this harmful substance. We have listed a few actions for you to take below, and hope you take a few minutes to review this crucial information. 

-The first (and most obvious) action you can take is to test your home. The U.S. Surgeon General, as well as the EPA, have advised that all homes in the United State be tested for radon, and luckily the testing is relatively simple and reasonably priced. Here is a link to obtain your test kit and learn more about the testing process in your home. 

-Second, if you are in the market to purchase a home, make sure you are buying a radon-resistant home by finding builders who use radon-resistant new construction. 

-Third, stay up to date on local radon events happening around your community. Especially in the month of January when the topic is at the forefront of many discussions, it will be much easier to find events to attend in the coming weeks/days. 

-The forth step is to spread the word! As we stated above, we can’t smell, see or taste radon, which presents a large challenge because a normal person cannot detect the substance without testing for it. Spread the message to your family, friends and neighbors and let them know not only about the harmful effects of radon, but also the steps in which they can protect themselves and their loved ones.

Looking For The Best Places To Eat In Omaha? We Have You Covered!

by Nancy Heim-berg

​Our beautiful city of Omaha has long been revered as being a step ahead when it comes to unique food concepts, and has been celebrated for its mouthwatering dishes, modern restaurant scene and innovative cuisine. Did you know that the TV dinner and the Reuben sandwich were both created here? It’s true! These classics are staples for many people, and are still loved and adored by many across the country – and even the world! Knowing that Omaha has a top culinary scene, you may be wondering which restaurants are the best in town and worth checking out. If this sounds like you, then today’s blog post is a must read. Let’s jump right in to a few of the top restaurants in and around Omaha!

Our first must-visit restaurant is a popular destination for many locals in Omaha and one that will make meat lovers rejoice! Yes, you may have guessed it – we are talking about The Drover. This admired steakhouse is famous for its whiskey steak, ribeye’s, filets and sirloins, and also serves dishes such as pork chops, crab legs, fish and chicken. And for those looking to balance their plates with a little green, The Drover also has a large salad bar to dive into. Next, located in the Old Market District is M’s Pub, which is well-known for their salads, steaks, soups, cold and hot sandwiches, and delicious desserts. They also have an impressive wine list, and visitors can take their pick from lounging on the patio, island bar or beautiful main dining room.

Our next destination is located in the Midtown Crossings District and is a popular restaurant with contemporary flair. Wondering what’s on the menu at The Grey Plume? Well, that depends on what’s in season! Visitors will be impressed with this farm-to-table concept and can expect dishes to be made with locally sourced and grown ingredients. This concept allows the chefs to be creative and let their talents soar. The Grey Plume is also a Green Restaurant Certified by SustainaBuild, and a location for cooking classes for locals looking to hone their skills. Lastly – calling all vegans! Modern Love is a new vegan restaurant in town and goes against the popular ‘meat capitol’ reputation that Omaha has come to be known for. Modern love is only open for dinner, and goers can expect to see dishes such as mushroom cheeseburgers, enchiladas and gnocchi. Who says vegan eating can’t be delicious!

Tips On How To Stage Your Home On A Budget

by Nancy Heim-berg

If you are thinking of selling your home, from time to time you may catch yourself making mental notes of areas that need repair, carpets that need cleaning and clutter that needs to be sorted and donated/thrown out. Many home owners may not realize the extent of work that needs to be done on their home before it is ready to be put on the market and shown to potential buyers. If you are wondering where to start in the home staging process, and want to do it without breaking the bank, then today’s blog post is for you. There are a few golden rules for you to keep in mind as you prepare and stage your home for potential buyers, and we have listed them below for you to check out. Let’s jump right in!

The first rule we are going to talk about is de-personalizing your home. What do we mean by that? Well, remember the large, framed family photo from three summers ago at Lake Tahoe that you have hanging in the living room? While it may bring you great joy as beautiful memories flood back to you when you look at it, it may not be as appealing to potential buyers who are looking at your home. You want your home to essentially be a blank canvas for buyers to picture themselves settling into. You want them to look at your kitchen and picture their Sunday dinners, your master bedroom as a cozy oasis for them to escape to and your family room as a central hub for gatherings. It will be hard for them to do that if all they see are reminders of how you have made the house yours and all the wonderful time you have spent there. So, with that being said, it is important to remove personal items that you have around your home when staging to sell. 

The next tip we have for you is to de-clutter the space. There is no better way for potential home buyers to picture a blank canvas than for them to see clean and neat spaces. You may even want to think about renting a storage unit if there are items that you think do not add to the space, but that you aren’t quite ready to part with yet. This can include items such as bulky furniture, artwork, kids toys, holiday decorations and clothing that makes your closet look too packed, thus making it appear smaller. De-cluttering will maximize the space in your home, ensuring that potential buyers see the real and full potential of the house. Our next tip is arguably the simplest, and that is to clean/sanitize your home. No one likes a dirty home and you only have one chance to make a first impression on buyers. Whether you hire on a company or choose to grab the rubber gloves and tackle the cleaning yourself, it will be the best time/money you could spend when it comes to staging your home to sell. 

Our last tip for you is to neutralize your home. It is no secret that color can make or break how people view a particular space. And while you may think that bright pink accent wall does wonders for the aesthetic of the home, potential buyers may think otherwise. All they will see is money, time and potential frustration on a home improvement project. One of the most inexpensive ways to change the look and feel of a home is to paint, and we can assure you that updating the space with calming and neutral colors will make a world of difference for buyers. We hope these tips and tricks will help you when it comes to staging your home to sell, and take off some of the stress and guess work on where to start!

With all the beautiful places in this country to live, you may be asking yourself why so many people settle on Omaha as their place to call home. And while we may be a little biased, we tend to think that our city has so much to offer from great food, incredible entertainment, endless things to do and safe, friendly neighborhoods – just to name a few. If Omaha has been on your list of potential places to move to but you have been going back and forth on if it will be the right fit for you and your family, today’s post is for you! We will be diving into a few reasons why you should call Omaha home and some of the many reasons why residents are glad they settled here.

We understand that when moving to a new city, many families want to know that there are safe and friendly neighborhoods for them to settle into. And we are happy to report that Omaha is known as being one of the friendliest cities in the country, boasting welcoming neighborhoods with individuals from all walks of life. Located in downtown Omaha is Old Market, which is known as one of the city’s top neighborhoods, sporting many dining and shopping options, taverns, galleries and even charming cobblestone streets. A few other areas to name that offer lots of appeal and desirability are South Omaha, North Omaha, West Omaha and Central Omaha. And for those with young children, rest easy knowing that Omaha has some of the best school systems in the state, and Nebraska overall has a high school graduation rate of about ninety percent – which is one of the highest in the country! There are also many universities and colleges nearby, including University of Nebraska, Creighton University and College of St. Mary. 

If you are worried about running out of events and things to do in Omaha, lets us reassure you that there are plenty of activities to keep you busy every day of the week! Everything from art and theater, to craft breweries, creameries, museums, and much more! A few of the top attractions around the Omaha area include Omaha Children’s Museum, The Rose Theater, Holland Performing Arts, Joslyn Art Museum (the largest art museum in Nebraska), The Durham Museum and CentruryLink Center Omaha, which is home to many large and popular events throughout the year. And for the avid golfer, there are sixteen public and semi-public courses for you to choose from that will allow you to practice your swing and challenge all skill levels. Omaha is also home to Aksarben’s River City Rodeo, which is part of a four-day western festival and the world’s second-largest rodeo. While we could go on about all the wonderful things that Omaha has to offer its residents, we hope that we have provided a little insight as to why so many people love to call Omaha home. We hope to see you soon!
