Dads Add Value To Homes And To Our Lives

My Dad- Fishing BreakLet’s just start off with this PSA: Dad does not want another tie for Father’s Day! But, he might appreciate a new tool to hep him “get things done” around the house! Or, he might even appreciate thinking of purchasing a new home, where he create the perfect man-cave!

We often picture our father’s as the pillar of strength; someone who we can lean on, the voice of reason, or the “Yes” answer to mom’s “No”. What people might not realize is the actual impact that dad has on the value of our home.  Things as simple as mowing the lawn, changing the lighting, or fixing the leaky sink add a significant amount of value to your home, and save you money, not to mention present and future values. One independent insurance firm estimates that this year alone, dad contributes $24,000 of time and effort into making your home a better place.

These tasks, although mundane, can really help when it is time to sell your home. The work that dad does to keep the yard maintained and well-kept has the potential to add a significant amount of money to the selling price of your house, and great curb appeal attracts buyers. Having him help move furniture and paint for staging purposes can save you time and money, rather than hiring a moving company and painters.

We have some great listings for every type of dad. Is he the outdoorsy-type who could spend all day fishing, birdwatching, or hiking? Our 93-acre Log Cabin in Quincy,FL a wildlife preserve with four ponds might be the place for him.

Give him his own space in the workshop or Morton Barn, on the 20-acre Custom-Built Equestrian Home in Tallahassee,with spring-fed ponds and a hammock so he can catch a snooze after working outside.

If dad prefers a smaller yard to landscape, or prefers to tinker around the interior the home at 2955 Paddington Drive located in  the Highlands at Northampton subdivision would be perfect. A garden-style house in a convenient location in Tallahassee, within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and schools.

All of our Tallahassee area Homes for Sale have something that dad would love, whether it is a workshop, ponds fully stocked with fish, or a lot on a golf course. Search listings our website, for all active listings in the Leon, and surrounding counties. See something you like? Contact Us and we will be glad to help!

We wish all our Father’s a Happy Father’s Day. We love and appreciate all that you do for us. For those who have past, we will never forget all that you gave us. Give dad a day off this Sunday, and let him know you appreciate all the things he does for you, and for your home.
