It's a buyer's market in Ventura right now. Any home seller tips that may give you an edge sounds good for anyone thinking about putting their property on the market. Here are a few smaller things that may hinder your home sale. Plus, we included what you need to do to change them into positives.Home Seller Tips: Small Things That May Hinder Your SaleEliminate/Reduce ClutterWe talked about decluttering your Ventura home before placing it on the market before. However, we don't want you to limit that to just the areas you see right away (such as countertops, shelves, etc.). You also need to address your bedroom closets. Pare down your wardrobe to eight or nine days worth of clothes. Limit your shoe collection to just two or three pairs per person. Accessories also need to be extremely li...

May 20th is National Pick Strawberries Day. We learned a few interesting facts about the strawberry that we would love to share. For example, did you know that the strawberry is actually part of the rose family? (The Rosacaeae family to be precise.) A cup of strawberries contains more Vitamin C than a medium orange. California grows approximately 80% of all strawberries produced in the entire United States. So, it makes sense that the Ventura Strawberry Festival takes place later this month.What: Ventura Strawberry Festival 2024Where: Ventura Fairgrounds (10 W Harbor Blvd)When: May 18th (10 am to 7:30 pm) & May 19th (10 am to 6:30 pm)Admission: $8 to $15 per person per dayContact: Strawberry Festival contact formVentura Strawberry Festival 2024This festival is one of the most popular fe...
