Last week, in honor of the month of October and Halloween, Hughston Homes hosted a costume caravan for Realtors in Lee County at Shadowwood Estates. This gorgeous home at 1255 Shadowwood Lane was the back drop for the event, and was beautifully decorated in true Halloween spirit. Visitors were treated with Boo Bites from Gigi's Cupcakes of Auburn as well as treat bags. To spice things up, fun masks and props were out for everyone to enjoy taking photos with.
Since the event, 1255 Shadowwood Lane has gotten lots of attention and it is now under contract. That means we only have 1 home left in Shadowwood! 1249 Shadowwood Lane, at the entrance of the subdivision, sits on a large lot and is designed with our most popular floorplan, The Camden!

Brick home with Side Entry Garage. Spray foam insulation, Handscraped Hardwood Flooring on first level, Platinum lighting package, Irrigation system, Covered Gameday porch with woodburning Stacked Stone Fireplace and HDMI cabling above.

If the Buyer can’t visualizes themselves in your home? They won’t buy. Remove family photos, awards, collections and collectibles. Let your home speak for itself.
Buyers want to see how much space and storage they’ll get. Clean out your closets, pantry, cabinets, drawers, under the bed. Make it neat, storage boxes or containers should match. Sort clothes by color in your closets and remember that a closet looks much larger at 25% capacity.
Act as if your Mother-in-Law in on her way and make it sparkle! Dust, clean baseboards, vacuum, mop, clean windows, doors. Set up a schedule to keep it clean with morning and evening chores.That last minute appointment may be the one that sells your home.
Stay Neutral. The lighter the color, the larger the space will look. Consider grays, light beiges, and greiges (gray-beiges). The best selling colors are grays and greiges with First Time Buyers.
Lighting fixtures, cabinet and door hardware, light switches and outlets can date a home. Swap out brass fixtures for nickel or oil rubbed bronze and spend a few dollars on new light switches and outlets. If the Buyers feel your home is dated, they may submit a lower offer to reflect that.
We want to keep you in the loop with all of our new homes, events we have taking places throughout the community, and everything else you need to know about Hughston Homes! Be sure to follow all of our pages and platforms to learn more about what Hughston can do for you.
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Preferred Real Estate Helps Raise Over $35,000 for Kids Charities While Trying to Give Away a New Home
What could be more AUsome than a day filled with golf, fellowship, and Auburn memories? Not much! And fun was certainly on the menu for the 24th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic at Saugahatchee Country Club in early October. The golf classic featured a full slate of famous (and most likely infamous) former Auburn University Football Lettermen. Some in attendance included former QB, Jason Campbell, Joe Cribbs, Chris Todd, Bret Eddins, Alex Bowden, Buddy McClinton, Will Herring, Randy walls, Lee Ziemba, Kendall Simmons, Larry Blakeney, Lloyd Nix, Lee Gross, Gabe Gross, Douglas Taylor, Bob Harris, Bill Newton, Larry Willingham, and others.
The day was filled with fun activities including great food from Outback Steakhouse, great music from the Opelika High School Jazz Band, the Auburn University Raptor Center, lots of prizes and give-aways and of course, a chance for one golfer to win $400,000 towards a new home in the Auburn-Opelika area - compliments of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Preferred Real Estate.
As golfers hit the course, each one of them had the opportunity to make the shot of their lives to win $400,000 towards a new home - made even more exciting by the fact that their new home would be located in the Auburn or Opelika area. The five shots that were closest to the pin on #4 would get the chance to shoot for the new home at the end of the event. And #4 was a toughy that day with an uphill grade and a strong wind blowing directly in golfers' faces. In the end, five qualifiers emerged: Brett Reid, Brent Beard, Brian Woodfin, John Robert Wood and Lee Ziemba.
In the end, no one was able to pull off the hole-in-one, but a great meal from Outback was enjoyed by all - with a lot of help from members of the Opelika High School Jazz Band.
The 25th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic is scheduled for early October, 2016. To sponsor a team or participate as an AU Letterman, contact Michelle Keesee at (334) 844-8519.
