November Updates From The Matt Hurlburt Group

Old Spokes Home/ Bike Recycle Vermont

As October drew to a close, the MHG was delighted with the turnout from our bicycle drive for the Old Spokes Home! From providing over 400 bikes each year to income-eligible Vermonters through our Everybody Bikes program, to teaching mechanics in our Apprenticeship Program, at Youth Shop, and in classes and workshops, to getting hundreds of people on refurbished bikes each year at Old Spokes Home... donated bicycles are fuel for our fire.

The goal of The Great Bicycle Harvest is to collect 100 donated bicycles by November 14th.

Here's how you can help:

Donate a bike.

 Donations are tax-deductible! Make space in your garage, feel good about helping people access bicycles, and get a tax-deductible receipt. Bikes can be dropped off at Old Spokes Home anytime during our open hours.

Spread the word.

A little taste: How to prep your home for sale

When preparing your home for sale, a number of simple cosmetic changes often provide the biggest return on investment. Here are three tips to upgrade your house without breaking the bank:

  • Bring in the light. The right light creates the right mood. Adding lights to dark rooms can make your home feel warm and inviting. Bring outdoor light inside by opening curtains and installing economical sun tubes.
  • Create Space. Many of today's buyers are looking for open rooms. Consider removing unwanted walls to make your home feel more spacious. Buyers will often pay a premium to get a bit of extra room.
  • Replace Flooring. Get rid of that old carpet in the den and replace it with today's newer hardwoods and laminates. You don't have to spend a lot to make a big impression!

These simple tips can help you sell your home and take advantage of our today's market. Please contact us if you have any questions about selling your home. We are here to help!
