Groundbreaking on Foothills Mall, The Square
Ground has broken at last on the much anticipated redevelopment of the Fort Collins Foothills Mall. Improvements to the retail site include a state-of-the art movie theatre, open spaces for events and concerts, an activity center and skating pond -- too name a few. The new mall, which will be renamed, is scheduled to open the fall of 2015. Nearby the mall redevelopment, two high-profile retailers are opening their doors this fall. It was recently announced that Sierra Trading Post will be opening as an anchor store at The Square on College Ave, occupying the space vacated by Office Depot. Joining them as an anchor store will be Trader Joe's, a popular retail grocery store.

Real Estate Tips
Selling Your Home >The Pheromone Factor

Pheromones are mysterious little chemical sensors that are supposed to have a lot to do with whether or not we are attracted to people. They may also play a big part in the way people react to houses.

If you have a house on the market, it will be important to ensure that the pheromone factor is as high as possible--so that the prospects who come inside will involuntarily pull out their checkbooks and offer to pay your asking price. A good real estate agent can give you some important hints about maximizing your home's ability to attract buyers. This could mean completely airing out every room to eliminate musty odors, or allowing enough time for freshly painted walls to lose that telltale toxic smell.

Unless you are already compulsively neat, you may need to make temporary changes in your housekeeping habits to ensure that your home is both fresh-smelling and sparkling clean. Sometimes this will involve hiring a professional cleaning service. Give your real estate agent the space to speak candidly about what you need to do to make your house looks its best.
