Tips on Choosing the Right Flooring for your Home!

New flooring is one way to make a dramatic difference in the appearance of your home and typically, this investment will increase the value of your home or at least, make it more appealing to the eye.   If you are selling your Lake of the Ozarks Home, this upgrade will almost always play in your favor by making your home more desirable to the potential buyer.

Once you've decided to invest in new flooring, you'll need to determine which flooring is right for your home.  Your budget and personal preferences play an important role as you choose between options like laminate wood, hardwood, engineered wood, carpet, tile or vinyl. 

Here are some questions you might want to consider to help you make your final selection:
  • Do you or your family suffer with allergies that might be made worse by carpeting?
  • Will it bother you to step on cold tile in the morning?
  • Do you prefer sweeping hard flooring or vacuuming carpet?
  • Will the sound of clapping shoes on hard flooring bother you?
  • Do you like to lie on the floor and watch a movie?
  • Do you plan on selling your Lake of the Ozarks Home in the next few years?
  • Do you have areas of your home that will have heavy foot traffic leaving carpet stains?
  • If you entertain often, will your flooring be well suited guests and accidental spills? 

 

Here are some tips for picking the right flooring in the each area.
  • Choose rugged flooring for high traffic areas.
  • If you plan to use carpeting in your home, select a speckled carpet that will hide dirt.
  • Choose tile for bathrooms - it offers easy cleanup and is durable.
  • If you have young children, consider hard flooring for easy clean up.
  • Mudrooms areas will have easier cleanup if you use hard flooring vs carpet
For most people, flooring is a major decision that you will enjoy for years to come.  We hope the information above will help you decide which flooring option is right for you.

Gattermeir Davidson Welcomes New Team Members, Lois & Ron Schweiss

Gattermeir Davidson Real Estate is excited to introduce their newest team members, Lois and Ron Schweiss.  Lois and Ron bring a combined 45 years of Real Estate experience to the lake area, having served the needs of Buyers and Sellers in the Ste. Genevieve/Festus region, just on the out skirts of St. Louis.  They have decided to move full time to the Lake of the Ozarks to pursue their next chapter on life, selling real estate at beautiful Lake of the Ozarks!

"Lois and I have lived in Ste. Genevieve all of our lives." Ron says. "It's a great little town!  The Ste. Genevieve real estate market and the people there have been good to us.  We've helped hundreds of families there with their real estate needs.  We were ready for a change of pace."  Lois and Ron have 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren they love to spoil!  Osage Beach area is where they love to call their home at the Lake of the Ozarks, but they are very familiar with all aspects of the Lake area.  Vacationing and being a second home owner in the lake for many years, they are grounded in the aspects that our community offers to second homeowners and vacationers alike.   “They really know about the experience of being on the other end of the process as both a buyer and a seller here at the Lake, since they have had a few different condos over the years.” said Ryan Gattermeir, Broker/Partner.

Reputation is something that is earned here at the lake and Lois and Ron will fit in perfectly with the small community and the Gattermeir Davidson team of professionals.  They bring a wealth of knowledge and understanding of  real estate and they understand the needs to offer first class service with the speed of technology in our ever changing market.  “I was impressed with their ability to understand our market trends and what it takes to become a Top Notch agent.  We are just happy to find a place for them in our real estate office!” explained Ed Schmidt, partner.

Finding the right fit for them was a process; they interviewed with many companies and finally decided on the Gattermeir Davidson company.  Conda Davidson, Broker/Partner, had this to say, “As we continue to grow our market share we need experienced agents to work with both buyers and sellers, and we know that Ron and Lois will build a successful real estate business here at beautiful Lake of the Ozarks!”  The outlook for 2014 is constantly improving with the addition of new realtors to the proven system of Gattermeir Davidson; they are poised to continue to be the top producing Private Real Estate Company at the Lake.

Kick of the 2014 Season with the Lake of the Ozarks St Patrick's Day Parade

For many, the St Patrick's Day parade marks the beginning of the Lake of the Ozarks "season" each year...that is why this parade is such a HUGE event at the Lake!  This year the parade will take place on March 15, 2014 at 1:00 pm on the historic Bagnell Dam Strip.

The parade will have just a little bit of everything... cars, motorcycles, boats, charity/civic floats and many local area businesses tossing beads and candy to the kiddos that line the streets.  It's a fun day to bring the entire family out to enjoy the parade as well as some of the businesses along the Bagnell Dam Strip.  Be sure to bring a lawn chair and get your green on for the parade!!

For those that cannot be at the parade, please be aware that the road will be shut down at 12:45 and will re-open around 3pm.   Access to HH/Horseshoe Bend will be available by using the new Hwy 242.

Be safe and enjoy the parade - the weather is supposed to be in the 60s and sunshine!!
