Dale & Eke is taking the COVID-19 outbreak very seriously.  So, for the purpose of maintaining social distancing under CDC guidelines and to promote the health and safety of our clients, visitors and staff and reduce the spread of COVID-19, our physical office will be closed until further notice.

For the time being we are limiting all in-office meetings to those clients and potential clients who are not feeling ill or who have not shown signs of illness.  However, we are recommending that, unless you make other arrangements with your attorney, all client and potential client meetings occur via telephone or video conferencing.  If you have any paperwork for us that you need to drop off, please use the mail slot outside of the front door to our office.

We can still be reached at our office telephone number (317-844-7400). Your call will be answered by our office phone system and you may leave a voicemail in the general mailbox or with a specific attorney. All voicemails left in the general mailbox will be routed to the requested attorney or staff.

You may also email the firm through its website at  www.daleeke.com.

We will continue to monitor this evolving situation and adjust procedures as necessary.  Your health and safety, and the health and safety of our attorneys and staff, is our highest priority.  We thank you for your patience and understanding during these uncertain and unprecedented times.

What are some tricks to increase my curb appeal?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but curb appeal is a little more quantifiable. Most of the time, a buyer can glance at the front of a house and decide whether or not it feels like a potential home.

It is a worthwhile investment in time to improve the curb appeal of your home if you are trying to sell it. Consider painting at least part of your home’s exterior, and pay attention to the state of your lawn.

Deciding to paint

Painting your home will definitely increase the curb appeal, but this is a lot of work and can be quite expensive. You may find that it is not worth the time and money to paint the entire outside of your home if your goal is to sell.

However, this does not mean you should skip painting entirely. You may find that putting a few hours into the trim of your home will pay off in big curb appeal dividends for a comparatively smaller amount of work.

Keeping an eye on the lawn

You will want to ensure that you keep all shrubs clipped back and neat. They do not need to be perfectly manicured, but over-hanging greenery can give a sloppy impression. Additionally, make sure that the for-sale sign on your front lawn is in good condition. Even the sign contributes to the curb appeal!

Taking the time to edge your lawn and power-wash your front walk can also make a home look more inviting to buyers. Often, you can get a landscaping company to do this for you.
