Have you ever seen tree faces? I absolutely love them. To me, they add so much character, fun and whimsy to a yard. I also believe that they shed some light on the personalities of those who proudly feature them in their yards (a.k.a the homeowners). And so I explored the towns of Weston and Wellesley to find and share some fabulous tree faces with you and get your thoughts as well….
Just for reference, tree faces can be purchased at various retail and online locations, including Walmart, Amazon.com, Garden.com and GenuineTreePeople.com, and they range in price from $10 to $40 (at least according to my research). My tree face was a gift from Elaine Bannigan, owner of Pinnacle Residential Properties in Wellesley, who gave me one because I admired the three that were in her front yard (some of which are pictured here). Often I forget about my tree face, but as soon as I see it and remember that it’s there, I smile and my mood brightens….
My questions to you are: 1) if you were buying a home, and it had a tree face in its front yard, would that make you feel good about the owners or would it not make a difference at all? And 2) if you were selling your home and had a tree face (or two), would this be something you would exclude and take with you? You can tell I’m a fan of these tree faces. Are you as well? I can’t wait to hear….

I would love to take credit for this next post, but alas, it was written by Elaine Bannigan, the owner and founder of Pinnacle Residential Properties in Wellesley, MA, which is also my place of employment. Elaine, who has been selling homes in Weston, Wellesley and the surrounding towns for over 30 years, wrote this for those who have lived in their houses for many years and are contemplating their next step in life. I thought it was quite pertinent, informative, well-written and poignant, and so I wanted to share it with you…..
One of the most difficult decisions you often have to make in life is to sell your home. This means, among other things, leaving the house where you’ve raised your family, entertained your friends, decorated with your own personal style, created your garden and established neighborhood relationships. (Buyers note that these are the reasons that selling a home is often much more emotional than buying one.) While many are content to remain in their homes throughout their retirement years, sometimes the appeal of streamlining and living a simpler life motivates us to sell. Here are some questions and thoughts to consider when determining the best strategy to follow:
- Is the upkeep of your home becoming too challenging?
- When it comes to the costly endeavors of painting, reroofing, general maintenance, etc., is it often difficult to find qualified people to do the work as well?
- Is the size of the house manageable?
- Are the taxes, utilities, maintenance on the space you no longer use wasteful of your resources?
- Are there too many stairs?
- Could cashing in on the substantial equity you’ve built provide a good deal of security?
- Have your friends moved and neighbors changed? Sometimes remaining in your home after your neighbors have changed (e.g., your area has a new influx of young families) gives you less opportunity for socialization than before.
Moving can be a complex and difficult decision to make. It is almost always stressful, and the older we get, sometimes the more difficult change can be. You may want to consult with family, friends or other advisors for help with this decision. And if you would like a complimentary market analysis of the value of your property in Weston, Wellesley or the surrounding towns so that you can make a more informed decision from a financial perspective, please contact Lisa Curlett (781-267-2844 or www.homesalesbylisa.com) and Elaine Bannigan as we would like to help as you weigh your options about selling your home. And we would also love to answer any other questions you may have…..
