Glenmeadow Talk to Focus on Helping Sellers Increase Their Home’s Value

AGAWAM — Glenmeadow Retirement will offer a panel presentation that focuses on how to increase a home’s value before listing it on the market on Tuesday, April 14 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Agawam Public Library.

The three panelists include Amy Woolf, an architectural color consultant from Northampton; Laura DuPont of Pioneer Valley Home Staging of Amherst; and Mark Roy of East Coast Home Inspections, LLC, of Enfield, Conn. During the panel presentation, “Home Sweet Investment: Increasing Your Home’s Value Before You Sell,” the three will offer information on how sellers can make their homes emotionally appealing to buyers, tackle deferred maintenance, and navigate the inspection process.

Seating is limited, and registration is required by calling (413) 567-7800 or e-mailing learning@glenmeadow.org. Visit glenmeadow.org/learning for more information.

As an architectural color consultant, Woolf has helped hundreds of homeowners find the perfect colors for their homes, both inside and out. She has won a national award for kitchen design and been recognized in national media.

DuPont advises sellers on interior enhancements and curb appeal. She has been an accredited home-staging professional since 2005. In 2007, she launched Pioneer Valley Home Staging along with her husband and business partner, Donald Perreault, who has more than 30 years of experience in landscaping and garden design.

He has inspected more than 5,500 homes, ranging from a 1,000-foot ranch to a 17,000-square-foot mansion, and he has led first-time homebuyer seminars for troops at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee.
