Creative Things to Do on Valentine's Day | Regina Drury Real Estate Group

Valentine's Day in Wilmington NC

Valentine's Day is literally just around the corner! Whether you already have something planned or you are scrounging around at the last minute looking for things to do with your special someone, we have some ideas for you in case you are interested. ;) While we believe that love should be celebrated every day, it is still nice to have some kind of course of action for "the day of love," the day when everybody is out celebrating Valentine's Day and all the restaurants are filled with candles, sweet goodies, and people out enjoying their partner's company.

Creative Valentines Day Date Ideas

If you are looking for something creative to do for Valentine's Day rather than the typical dining experience, then we have come up with some out of the box date ideas for you. 

1. Choose a meal to cook together

It's conventional to go out to eat for Valentine's Day to a fancy restaurant, but why not take the time you would spend at a restaurant and apply it to a whole cooking experience together? The challenge is to pick a meal (bonus points: three-course meal), get the groceries for it, and cook it together--preparation and all. This is for the couple who is looking for a unique quality time experience.

2. Be a tourist in your own town

Wilmington, NC is the perfect place and a goldmine for this. From the Ghost Walk downtown to the USS Battleship, to visiting one of our historic museums to spending some time at one of our local beaches, plan a day where you act like a tourist in your own town. Maybe you could learn something new after all! 

3. Play pool or go bowling! 

Doing activities like these is great for the couples who enjoy a little competition. Visit Orton Billiards and Pool Room downtown or head over to Burnt Mill Creek perhaps for a glass of wine and some pool time also. If you take a peek at some of the bowling alleys in town, some of them even have cosmic bowling nights! 

4. What about horseback riding? 

For the animal lover and nature-enthusiast, maybe enjoy a trail ride or take a horseback riding lesson together. There are a few options for riding horses in Wilmington, NC but here's a link to a couple of horse stables near Wilmington. 

Hanover Stables

Desperado Horse Farm

5. Take the dogs for a walk at the beach

Speaking of animal lovers: do you have a dog? Why not take the dogs for a walk at the beach? Walking from Oceanic Pier to Johnny Mercer's Pier itself is a little over three miles. Sun, sand, and just a nice afternoon out on the coast of Wrightsville Beach. If you're really wanting to take advantage of this time, maybe pack a picnic lunch and some blankets. Not a big fan of the beach? That's okay! Wilmington has an abundance of dog parks also! Click here for an easy list of dog parks in Wilmington, NC

6. Go watch a live theater performance

At N.Front Theater in downtown Wilmington this year, they are running a show called "Murder Ballad: A New Musical" which was an off-Broadway hit in 2013. Tickets are available by clicking this link here. The show is running Valentines Day to February 18, 2018. 

7. Go see live music 

This one is for the music lovers! If you already have set plans for Valentine's Day, but still are wanting to do something a little extra, check out a fundraiser happening in town the day after Valentine's Day. At Beckwith Recital Hall at UNCW, there is a Valentine Gala happening at 7 pm featuring the UNCW Faculty String Quartet. This event's proceeds provide community music academy summer scholarships to talented and in-need young artists. Admission is $15. Learn more by calling 910-962-3415. 

8. Personalized Brewery Crawl

Whatever your preference is, whether it's beer or wine (or maybe you don't like either but you both like coffee or even sweets), selecting several options for a night on the town where you explore new breweries, wine bars, or places with fabulous desserts would be a fun option for a night out with your special someone. Downtown would be a great choice for this due to all of the options along with the proximity of the locations. Come up with your own personalized, make it fun, and have at it! Maybe even play a game where you have to order something different at each spot that you have never tried before. 

9. Treat yo'self! 

This one's for my single people. Treat yourself! Splurge! Go do something fun with friends! Make a day of it!

For the ladies: Maybe you want to go and spend a day at the spa, buy a new outfit, or go have cocktails with some lady friends, make it an experience you'll never forget.

For the gentlemen: The same concept applies--go out and do something for yourself! You deserve it! 

Happy Valentine's Day

From us here at Regina Drury Real Estate Group, we hope you have a wonderful day celebrating the special people in your life.

8 Mistakes When Selling a Home | Regina Drury Real Estate

Home Selling Mistakes

So you're thinking of selling your house and you're wanting some tips on how to get the most out of it. Maybe you've put years of work and memories into it, and you're wanting to make sure you get the most bang for your buck. Or maybe you are looking to sell your home quickly and wondering how to make the process easier. From whatever stance you have, you've come to the right place. 

To make it easy, we have compiled a list of 8 mistakes when selling a home. 

1. Not Hiring an Experienced Full Time Professional to Sell your Home

2. Setting an Unrealistic Price Tag

3. Being Lazy with Listing Photos

4. Poor Marketing with your Home

5. Being Too Emotionally Attached

6. Avoiding Necessary Repairs 

7. Refusing to Get Rid of Clutter and Junk

8. Not Paying Attention to Closing Expenses

 

Not Hiring an Experienced Full Time Professional to Sell your Home

If you are looking to save at every corner, you might be thinking of avoiding hiring a professional, but hiring a full time Real Estate Agent is exactly what you need. Hiring a Real Estate Agent means finding someone who has knowledge of the real estate market in its entirety. Not only will they be able to help you with all the details, but they will be aware of market conditions, negotiating the sale price, and marketing your home to potential buyers. At Regina Drury Real Estate Group, we even have an aggressive marketing campaign custom tailored for each property. 

Setting an Unrealistic Price Tag

A huge mistake that a home seller can make is pricing the home wrong--either it is priced too high or too low. Pricing a home too high reduces the chances of prospective buyers looking at it. If it's too low, sellers may worry about giving away profits, and potential buyers may worry about underlying issues of the home. 

When pricing a home, experienced professionals look at all aspects of the home and its surrounding area. They look at comparable sales, market movement, demand, the home's location and also its condition. 

Being Lazy with Listing Photos

It may seem like it's easy to just snap a few photos from your phone and to think it does the trick, but many times this is not the case. Having professional photos of your home always is a benefit, because professionals know how to stage the home and the photos to make it the most visually attractive to a buyer. We can't tell you how many times we have looked at listings of homes with grainy photos that have no attention to detail, minimal lighting, and poorly thought set up. When you are selling your home, every aspect of marketing serves as a selling point and with this tech-oriented world, many people will be taking a look at your home online from the comfort of their own. Make every picture count.

Poor Marketing for Your Home 

When selling your home, you want your top real estate agent to use all their different avenues and strategies not only to get the home sold but to have it sold within a reasonable (or even exceptional) amount of time. Real estate agents who care about your home getting sold will take advantage of all possibilities, whether it be direct mail, online advertising (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, you name it), signage, tours, etc. Proper real estate marketing and taking quality listing photos is all a part of the home selling process and neglecting to market your home properly is definitely a seller mistake. 

Being Too Emotionally Attached

While it's always hard to let go of something that is your own, selling your home requires you to take on the business mindset. Many times sellers still are too emotionally attached to their home, so minor issues still feel like major issues to them. Even in the negotiation process, sellers tend to take negotiating personally, which could result in the loss of a sale. You have to treat this as a business transaction and not like your interested buyers are trying to take something from you that's going to stay yours. Your home is now on the market--a competitive one at that, so you have to treat this as such. 

Avoiding Necessary Repairs 

Making necessary repairs is also crucial for selling your home quickly and easily. When people decide they want to buy a home (unless they are DIY oriented, which is not the case for everybody), they want to buy a home and know that the home they bought is move-in ready. They want to know all light bulbs are fixed, doors are working properly, the oven works, there are no electrical issues, hardwood floors are nice and clean, paint on the walls is fresh, and many more to do items that are not on this list. There are two things that may happen if this isn't taken care of. Either you lose a potential buyer completely or you will lose money paying for these costs to your buyer.  Even worse is when there is something that you could have taken care of for cheaper than what you may pay out of pocket to the buyer to have these things taken care of. Take care of the repairs yourself (in whatever way is the most beneficial for both you and your future buyer) and before you even put your home on the market to reduce all the extra hassle.

Refusing to Get Rid of Clutter and Junk

Once again, you have to treat selling your home like a business transaction, which means staging your home in a way that makes it the most visually appealing. One of the easiest (and low cost) improvements that can be made to your home is cleaning it, removing clutter and junk, and organizing items throughout the house.  It's so easy and ultimately worth it--it just takes time and effort on your part.

Not Paying Attention to Closing Expenses

Looking at the financial side of all of this, you want to make sure you are in the loop about all of what's required (and recommended) of you as a seller. Home sellers may want to to try to hide significant problems about the home, but once the home gets inspected, all will be revealed anyways. Once again, take care of all these details ahead of time to quicken the process and to avoid losing potential buyers. Another aspect of this is not paying attention to closing expenses. A part of using an experienced real estate agent is that they are going to go over closing costs and all estimated expenses with you prior to you getting too deep into the process of selling your home. Be sure you are in the know about all the details related to preparing your home for sale!

Things to Do Wilmington: Bellamy Mansion | Wilmington Things to Do

Things to Do Wilmington: Bellamy Mansion 

Let's say you have a free weekend and you know that the weather is going to be gorgeous. Why not visit one of Wilmington's most shining examples of antebellum architecture? Built between 1859-1861, this twenty room historic house is the highlight as you come to the heart of downtown Wilmington. Most visitors may even find themselves gawking as they pass by due to its large presences at the corner of 5th and Market Street downtown. 

I mean, even if the weather isn't the most ideal, spending a couple of hours exploring this huge house downtown is like stepping back into a piece of Wilmington and United States history, with large Corinthian columns and various blinds and window draping, ordered from the big city of New York.

History at Bellamy Mansion

During the time Bellamy Mansion was built, it was the largest city in North Carolina (shocking, actually) and was number one in the world for the naval sales industry (see our blog on the Battleship for more about Wilmington's claim to a piece of naval history). Dr. John Bellamy along with his large family, for whom the house was named, decided to hire an architect to construct this beautiful piece of history and by October of 1859, construction took place, setting this house apart from all others. Slaves, several freed black artisans, and other skilled carpenters from the area came in take part in history, by helping to get this home finished by 1861. While the home was constructed in a very classic style, Dr. Bellamy was also invested in making sure that his family lived in comfort by using more modernized amenities, innovations that were not common in other households.

Although there were these types of modernities, the home still had its three sectors: the main house where the Bellamy family lived, the slave quarters, and the carriage house, all built by a number of men contracted to help. 

Visit Bellamy Mansion in Wilmington, NC

Visitors come all throughout the year to see this home and learn about its history. Both self-guided and guided tours of the home are available seven days of the week. Guided tours begin every hour on the hour, with the last tour beginning at 4:00pm. For more information, call 910-251-3700 or visit their website to learn more about Bellamy Mansion.

Things to Do Wilmington: USS Battleship | Wilmington Things To Do

Downtown Wilmington Things to Do: USS Battleship

Coming up from Market Street into downtown Wilmington is a vision of the Cape Fear River and with a closer look, you may see a ship lining the horizon. Those who are familiar with the nitty gritty details of US history (or even more localized--Wilmington history) may know that the USS Battleship is a major historic landmark in Wilmington, and in North Carolina in general. 

Constructed as the first to join the American fleet for World War II, this massive beauty participated in every major naval offensive in the Pacific area, earning 15 battle stars.

When the time had come to its end for the USS Battleship, citizens of North Carolina organized a campaign called the Save Our Ship campaign to bring back the naval vessel to its homeland. With the campaign being the success that it was, North Carolina was able to send the ship back to its current berth, which puts it right in the center of the magic of a downtown Wilmington, NC sunset.

Visitors Come to See the USS Battleship

Every year the USS Battleship sees countless amounts of visitors and hosts events like award ceremonies and even weddings. Even for the past few years, a local dance company has hosted a Latin dance event on the ship to start out the summer months with a bang.

Stepping on this ship is like stepping onto a piece of history; as you walk onto the ship, you are confronted with the massive cannons in the center of the ship.

Look out over the ship to a view of downtown Wilmington's award-winning River-Walk, lined with local shops and restaurants like Elijah's Restaurant and the Pilot House to name a few. You may even see the Courthouse where the once popular TV show Matlock was filmed. Either way, the view is spectacular, lending to an eventful day on one of Wilmington's top tourist destinations and historic landmarks.

Take a Peek Inside

Ever thinking about getting your hair cut on a moving ship? On this tour, I was able to get access of parts of the ship that the majority of the public eye doesn't see on regular tours. So here you have the hair salon, complete with the works.

Below is the set up of the operation room, complete with supplies, medicine, and even nostalgic photos of surgeries that took place on the ship during its time on the waters.

Take a look at this pharmacy--much different than what we see in front of us at the counter at Walgreens or CVS. 

After a hard day at work, navymen might have a float at the ice cream parlor. Look at this antique cash register!

Check out these tight living quarters. ;) Imagine having your bed above your desk and having to climb all the way up to get to your bed like this. 

Or how about that bunk in the far right corner over there? Suspended from the ceiling, barely any mattress padding, and spring coils that line the bottom of the frame. That sure sounds comfortable. 

Ever slept on a bunk bed? How about a quadruple one? What if you got stuck sleeping on the very top bunk? I would hate to fall off the bunk bed onto that floor. 

 

Tour the USS Battleship

Interested in seeing more of the ship or even just seeing all of its glory in person? You can do a guided tour or you can choose to take a peek at the grandeur of the ship on your own. Either way, this ship is open daily from 8a-5pm in the winter time, or enjoy extended hours from 8a-8pm in the summer. Guided tours have specific times, so check out pricing and details by clicking here for more information.

How to Get your House Ready to Sell | Regina Drury Real Estate Group

Preparing your Home for Sale

Are you selling your home and wondering how to prepare? Are you wondering how to make your home more appealing to interested homebuyers? You've come to the right spot. Trying to sell your home is already a task within itself, so we have compiled a list of ways to get your house ready to sell. 

Now that your home is getting ready to go on the market, it is becoming a product to sell, therefore your goal as a seller is to make your house look as presentable and as "fresh" as possible. Here are some ways that you can make your house look as good as new and ready to close.

List of Things to Do to Get Your House Ready to Sell

1. Get Carpets and House Professionally Cleaned

2. Clean your House Daily

3. Get Organized

4. Repair Anything Broken

5. Pay Attention to Details

 

1. Get Carpets and House Professionally Cleaned

Hiring outside services such as carpet cleaners and even a cleaning crew to come do a deep clean on your home cannot only help your house be even more ready for the public eye, but it can also help take some of the pressure off of you. Trying to prepare your home for selling already has a long list of to-dos, so why not have professionals come in and take care of tasks that will take up more of your time than you have to give. 

2. Keep Everything Clean

While the professionals will take care of the deep clean, you want to make sure you are also doing your part by keeping everything clean, especially on showing days. Making sure you keep up with the bathroom, rooms, and the kitchen is important because you never know what interested buyers will look at. If they see a clean house that looks as if it has been taken care of, it is possible that will be more inclined to favor your home in their decision-making process. 

3. Organize, Organize, Organize

Think of it like this: every day has the potential for a showing to happen and the potential for your house to be sold, so you want to make sure everything is in top condition.  Here is a list of things that you should consider organizing:

  • The kitchen (counter, cabinets, drawers, etc.)
  • The refrigerator 
    • Remember, everything is subject for an interested buyer to take a peek at
  • Bookshelves
  • Dressers
  • Closets
    • If you have clothes and shoes everywhere, it will be helpful to arrange all of those items in a way that makes your closet have the least amount of clutter possible.
  • Use this organizational time to get rid of anything you no longer use or have a need for anymore. The rule of thumb (generally) is, if you haven't used it for over a year, maybe it's time to throw it away.  Think of it as you are going ahead and preparing yourself for your own move. 

The goal behind all of this is to remove the cluttered aspects of the home to make it more visually appealing. Out of place items are distracting to the potential buyer. 

4. Repair Anything Broken

  • Repair anything broken (door handles, light bulbs, etc.)
  • Touch up paint scuffs and chips.
    • That being said, if you find that the rooms could use a re-do, it may be a good idea to reconsider. Consider ensuring neutral paint colors throughout the home. Bright colors may throw off interested buyers. 
  • Any knick-knacks, paperwork, personal items should also be put away and out of sight. The goal is to have your home looking as clean and crisp as possible. 

5. Pay attention to details

From making sure everything is clean to opening all the blinds to let all the natural light into the home, everything is up for negotiation when it comes to marketing your home to potential buyers. After you've finished taking care of all the nitty-gritty details, step outside and take a look at your home. Think to yourself:

Would I buy this home? 

Is my home ready to sell?

Some extra added "mmph" is nice too, such as:

  • Freshly fluffed pillows and neatly folded throw blankets on the couch
  • White towels hanging in the bathroom (gives off a hotel vibe)
  • Fresh flowers and greenery are always a nice addition to any decoration
  • Some people may get turned off by strong scents like cinnamon, but a fresh scent sprayed throughout the house is nice 
    • Side note: Avoid cooking strongly scented foods like bacon before you show your home. You wouldn't want to deter any of your buyers who may not care for particular food smells.
  • Neatly arranged decorations
  • Some people even go as far as organizing cabinets where all the handles to coffee cups face the same way. Nothing is out of the question when it comes to organization.
  • Pops of color to a room (i.e red pillows with white couches)
