A few notes from your real estate agent and friend, Dee.

4 fun things to do around Jax 

Here are a few fun things to do: Tonight, September 19th, Downton Abbey Premier Party; on Saturday, September 21st, Hispanic Heritage Celebration or 5k Run, Walk & Roll; and on Tuesday, October 1st, GUNS ‘N ROSES Not In This Lifetime Tour.

3 ideas you could try (if you like to DIY) 

  1. Turn a retired suitcase into a decorative storage piece
  2. Make a chic pocket-style magazine holder with wood, fabric, and glue 
  3. Repurpose a new storage box for your chargeable devices from an old toolbox.

2 pieces of real estate info (Duuuval!)

  1. Jacksonville’s house price appreciation is ranked in the top 10 in the US (Apr-Jun 2019)
  2. Jacksonville’s house price appreciation jumped 8 percent over the previous year.

1 really good homeowner tip (you gotta know this!)

KNOW WHERE YOUR WATER SHUTOFF VALVE IS! Should a pipe in your home ever burst, you’ll immediately regret not knowing where to go to turn off your water. A bad leak can soak everything in minutes, destroying drywall, carpet and more. Look for your water shutoff valve near where the water main enters your house and teach adults and older children in the home how to work it. 

A few crumbs (or pieces of pulp)

One of my baby mango trees grown from seed.

First, a mango smoothie is just about the best thing in the world! Mango is wonderful for stress resistance. Rich in beta-carotene, mangoes strengthen and support the skin and may even help prevent varieties of skin cancers. Their magnesium and phytochemical phenolic acids calm the central nervous system, plus, the fruit’s pulp soothes the stomach and intestinal lining. What’s not to like?

And Zero Pressure (Trivia Question)

TRUE or FALSE:  You can purchase an acre of land on the moon or on Mars for as little as $30.

Answer: This is true, according to Inman.com. Apparently, over 250 celebrities have already bought land on the moon, including William Shatner, Tom Cruise, Mick Jagger, Harrison Ford, John Travolta, and Clint Eastwood.

Preview your future lunar lot on the next full moon which is October, 13th. (LOL)

Dwell well,
