What’s a Rich Text element?



The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Homes for Sale In Ohio

First, you may need to ask home buyers who viewed your home what they thought of it or have your real estate agent run anonymous surveys with prospective buyers to collect information on what turns the buyers off. The feedback from potential buyers can be very useful, especially when coupled together with four other things that every seller should address to get a home moving in the Ohio market ...

1. A tidy home sells

An untidy home gives the impression that you haven't been taking care of it and there are probably some defects that resulted from the neglect. Also, when there are toys and clothes laying around, potential buyers view this as a lack of sufficient storage space around the house, which can affect the selling power of your house. It's very important to tidy and get rid of unnecessary things before putting up a home for sale in Ohio and allowing viewing.

2. Update the decor

Ohio buyers are always on the lookout for modernized homes with upgrades, especially on the décor front. The more updates your home has, the better it will score. Outdated décor like floral wallpaper and wood paneling usually turn off buyers. They tend to see this as signs that they will have to spend more time and resources upgrading the home. 

There are some simple décor upgrades though, that can effectively give your home a modern look.  For example, Replace brass knobs and hinges around the house with modern chrome-finished ones; rip-off wall paper and repaint, get rid of wood paneling and the ceiling can be quickly fixed at very small costs. These minor improvements can make a big difference to the way potential buyers see your home.

3. Clean up after your pets

Prospective buyers in Ohio have their eyes wide open and their noses sniffing up the air. If they find any pet prints on the walls or pet stenches hanging in the air they may be inclined not to even consider your home. It might seem like a minor thing but pets like dogs and cats leave behind a scent that can be unfriendly to potential buyers. Many people are allergic to fur and the presence of fur residues all over the house can have them break out into an allergic reaction. To deal with this quickly, get the carpets and furniture steam cleaned by professionals to get rid of fur and remove the animal smells. 

It is easy for you to get accustomed to your pet’s smell but other people can smell it the minute they set foot into the home. Vacuuming the home before open visits and keeping all pets and accessories out of sight during the home viewing can also be helpful.

4. Depersonalize the home

Potential home buyers need to be able to see themselves living in the home. It is hard for them to picture and envision this when your kid’s artwork and family photos are sprinkled throughout your house. Depersonalizing your home a bit can help create a blank canvas for buyers, but it doesn't mean stripping the home of all memories and personals. Just make sure to shelve away abstract décor and other displays, so that you can create a wider audience the home appeals to.
