A struggling economy has made it difcult for many homeowners to sell their homes for a price theyre comfortable with.But the sagging economy is not the only thing can make it difcult to sell a home. In fact, a host of other </p><p>things, some obvious but some not so obvious, can hurt a homes value as well.Location: A homes location is arguably its best or worst selling point. A home in a great location wont </p><p>be as difcult to sell as a home in a bad neighborhood. But location goes beyond a neighborhoods reputation, especially in recent years. Homeowners who live in a neighborhood or development with many foreclosures might nd those foreclosed properties are hurting their own homes value. Lots of foreclosures could negatively affect a neighborhoods reputation, which might make a home within that neighborhood less attractive to prospective buyers. Appearance: A homes appearance is another obvious variable that might affect its resale value. Ho-</p><p>meowners might want their home to reect their own individuality, but thats not going to help when the time comes to sell the home. If the exterior paint is out of the ordinary, then it might be wise to choose a more traditional or conservative color before erecting the "For Sale sign out front. The same goes for a homes interior. If the interior design is especially unique, a more traditional interior decor might help the home sell faster.Size and style: Another thing to consider when selling a home is its size and style. A home that stands </p><p>out on the block might be an attention-grabber, but thats not always attractive to prospective buyers. For instance, a colonial sitting in the middle of a street lled with contemporary homes will stand out, but likely for all the wrong reasons. It will likely appear dated and out of place, which is something buyers might not want. In addition, if the home is considerably larger or smaller than the surrounding homes, then this could hurt its value.</p><p>1002</p><p>3601</p><p>FACTORS THAT MIGHT HURT A HOMES VALUE</p><p>Jo Sexton, PresidentCambridge Area Chamber of Commerce</p><p>607 Wheeling Avenue, Cambridge, OH 43725740-439-6688</p><p>WELCOME TO THE 2012 HOME, GARDEN, AND BUSINESS EXPO</p><p>Sponsored by the Cambridge Area Chamber of Commerce</p><p>1002</p><p>2938</p><p>There is a renewed spirit of positive energy in our economy these days, and we think youll see it and feel it at this years Expo!

For homeowners, this is the perfect opportunity to assess any damage the previous months did to yards and develop a plan restore properties.</p><p>* Dont jump the gun. The rst warm day of spring might seem like a great time get out in the yard and get your hands dirty. But its best to wait until the grass has completely dried out before get-ting to work. Raking on wet grass increases the risk of tearing out grass, which can cause bald spots and the growth of weeds down the road. In addition, stepping on the grass while the ground is still wet can compact the soil, which can slow drainage and block the lawns roots from breathing.</p><p>Patience should prevail with regard to mowing the lawn as well. A lawns roots will not start to grow until the average everyday temperature routinely reaches 40 F, so mowing too early is both unnecessary and potentially harmful to the lawn. When the tem-peratures regularly reach 50 F, then homeowners will likely start to see their lawns growing.* Remove debris thats piled up. Debris has a tendency to infest a yard over the course of the winter months. Fallen branches, stones and even trash can accumulate in a yard, putting those who spend time in the yard at risk of injury once the warm weather returns. For instance, bits of twigs and pebbles that are blown across the yard during a windy winter can be embedded in the yard, making the yard less of a haven and more of a hazard. Once the grass is dry enough to walk on, walk around the property and remove any debris thats piled up over the last few months.* Employ a pre-emergent weed killer. Homeowners who routinely spend their summers agonizing over weeds throughout the yard should consider applying a pre-emergent weed killer around the beginning of spring. Its important to do so around the end of March or early April, when the weeds have not yet had a chance to grow. When applying, follow the dosage instructions provided by the products manufacturer. Such instructions often recommend a second application right before summer begins.</p><p>* Remove thatch. Once the grass has dried, you can begin to remove thatch thats built up over the winter. Thatch is potentially very harmful to soil, blocking sunlight, air and moisture the soil needs to ensure a lawn looks lush and healthy. Thatch removal does not necessarily need to be an annual task. If thatch buildup is insignicant, then it can be done every other year. Just use a dethatching rake to make the job much easier.</p><p>* Aerate, particularly if the yard is a heavy trafc area once the warm weather arrives. If your yard transforms into a childs wonderland upon the arrival of spring and summer, you might want to revive the soil by...</p></li></ul>
