Starting an indoor herb garden can be easy and rewarding. Here are some tips to get you started.

Fresh herbs are an easy way to add life to dull dishes. These fragrant and flavorful little plants make beautiful garnishes, add vitality to every bite, and even better, they're packed with valuable antioxidants and nutrients. Sure, you can pick up all these herbs at a grocery store, but nothing beats the taste of a home-grown, fresh-picked herb. If you've got a windowsill with plenty of sunlight, then you have the perfect spot for growing an indoor herb garden. Herbs are easy to grow and you don't need a big backyard or green thumb to grow a lush herb garden. Here are our REALTORS®' favorite indoor herbs, plus how to grow and use them.

It's the perfect time to make your home spotless again. Use these tips for a proper deep clean.

Spring is finally here! And as nature starts fresh in spring, it's also a great time to give your home a deep cleaning and keep it well organized. Our REALTORS® suggest kicking off your spring cleaning with these tips:

  • Streamline your cleaning supplies. 
    You don't need a specialized cleaner to make your home fresh and clean. Buy a good all-purpose cleaner and some microfiber cloths, which will cover most of your cleaning, and you can buy others only as needed. You can also make your own homemade cleaner by combining ¾ cup water, ¾ cup rubbing alcohol, 5 to 10 drops of essential oil, and 1 squirt of dish soap. This can be used on appliances, sinks, and quartz, granite, and marble counters.
