Working From Home Chattanooga

Whether you are a seasoned telecommuter or recently mandated to work from home, staying productive is essential. Every day, you may find a blurred line between your work commitments and your personal life. Managing a balance between the two is critical to achieving your goals. While everyone has a different approach to working at home, our agents have found the following tips are effective in helping you stay productive while working from home.

  1. Create a Work Space 
    Convert an extra room into a home office. If you are preparing to expand your living space, check out the wide variety of Chattanooga homes for sale with a spare bedroom to transform into a home office. Set up a desk and make a functioning office space. When your space is limited, try to use a small computer desk or a folding table in a corner for a workspace. Do not forget when setting up your office or work area to purchase a comfortable chair. Designating a space for your work helps you stay focused and productive.

Donate Masks in Chattanooga

Running out of ways to occupy your time? Cloth face masks are so easy to make that you can work on them while binging Netflix. Here are instructions for sewing a simple face mask along with a list of places around Chattanooga homes for sale that are accepting donations.

How to Make a Cloth Face Mask

  1. Cut two 10-inch by 6-inch rectangles from a piece of tightly-woven cotton fabric. High thread-count pillowcases, flannel pajamas, and dish towels are good sources of materials. Vacuum cleaner bags and HEPA furnace filters will also work.

Chattanooga GardensWith Chattanooga families sheltering in place, gardening is a great activity to enjoy the great outdoors without leaving your home. For those new to the hobby, there are many plants that thrive in our corner of Tennessee. Choosing plants that thrive locally will increase your chances of having a successful garden.

Our REALTORS® suggest the following eight plants that are perfect for the Chattanooga area:

  1. Purple Coneflower
    Purple coneflowers are daisy-shaped flowers that are often purple, pink, or white, although they can come in other colors as well. Their blooms can be as large as six feet across, and the plant's stalks can grow to five feet tall, usually staying upright without staking. Plus, this plant is sure to attract birds and butterflies to your Chattanooga garden. 

  2. Star of Toscane
    This perennial vine is a more cold-tolerant version of climbing or spreading star jasmine. It has glossy green leaves and fragrant white blooms with gold centers. If you need a mixed border or groundcover, Star of Toscane will perform well in these areas. It also looks beautiful supported in an arbor, fence, or trellis.

Moving with Pets

Moving is a stressful experience, and it's even more so when you have pets. You have the added responsibility of looking out for their well-being, managing their anxiety, and making sure they settle happily into their new home.

Our REALTORS® suggest the following 7 tips for moving with pets:

  1. Check Rules and Regulations for Your New Home
    Counties, cities, and states have rules and regulations that govern pet ownership. You'll need to bring documentation showing that your pet has been vaccinated and check to see whether your pet needs to be licensed in your new home. You'll also need to know about any other applicable laws, such as leash laws, that will apply to your pet.
