Simple Style Is The New Black

There is a new fad sweeping the nation and it's not a next diet for the new year. In the age of Pinterest and renew/reuse, we are trending back to the simple times with styles that are crisp and clean, eco-friendly and offer comfortable chic. Here are a few ideas to make your home all the rage.

1. Play up a photography collection. Make your photos the focal point of the home. Clusters of black and white photos in simple frames can show your interests and family as art.

2. Vintage finds. Glass beakers as vases on the mantel, industrial work tables used as furniture, antique baskets providing storage for dog toys and leashes - these yard sale or savage shop finds make your home interesting.

3. Curtains. They soften a room and are much easier to clean and maintain than blinds.

4. Simple Color Palette. The "accent wall" rage has left the building. Soft, muted colors allow you to highlight your furniture and art work. Instead of painting one wall a brilliant color, choose a brilliant... read article

Home Away For The Holidays

Will you be relaxing for the holiday? Everyone knows the holidays can be super stressful - Who's coming to dinner? Will we have enough food? I didn't know he was coming - we didn't get him a gift! Who's on a crazy diet this year?

Have you ever considered a "vacation holiday"? Have you ever considered a vacation holiday in Florida?

We understand a tropical paradise might not be the first thing you connect with Christmas. Your kids might question how Santa would get his sleigh on the roof without snow. But, a holiday in flip flops might be just the thing to ease the holiday stress and do something just a little different for a change.

Here are a few reasons to take a little holiday vacation in paradise:

1. You often do things on vacation you wouldn't otherwise - Physical activities like snorkeling, long walks on the beach and biking around Siesta Key can't be done in the snow. Uploading a picture of yourself swimming in the Gulf while your friends are shivering in minus degree temperatures is loads of fun.

2. You're making a lasting... read article

Cool Facts About Real Estate

The field of Real Estate isn't all contracts and showings. Well, that IS how we spend a majority of our time. But one of the things people love about real estate is knowing unique and interesting information about the home or property they're buying, selling or just living in. We all know someone who's first comment during a cocktail party is "Let me tell you about the history of this house." or "Do you know who lived here before I bought this place" or "This mark on the wall was made by a bayonet during the Civil War". Everyone loves to have something distinctive about their home.

Here are a few interesting facts about real estate we love to toss around the office:

*In Scotland, home owners paint their front door RED when they pay off the mortgage *Charles "Pretty Boy" Floyd was a Great Depression era gangster who was loved by the general public. When he robbed banks, he would destroy mortgage documents which freed many citizens of their debts. *In New York, it is a legal requirement for a seller to disclose if a property under inspections is believed to be haunted by ghosts. *Brass doorknobs disinfect... read article

Dress To Impress For The Holiday Season - But, Don't Go Overboard

I love Christmas as much as the next person. I look forward to decking my halls and trimming the tree. Making my home warm and inviting for family and guests to share the holiday cheer....and maybe going a touch overboard with decorations....just a little.

If you have your home on the market, a little bit of holiday ornamentation is fine. But, you may want to keep your 250 piece Santa's Village in tissue paper this year. Take a hint from the minimalists and keep your decorations simple. HGTV has published an excellent checklist to keep it a tidy holiday season. Click Here... read article

Typical Life Expectancy Of Important Household Items

When was the roof done? How long before I have to resurface the pool? When was the last time someone checked the duct work?

These....and many more....are important items to consider when purchasing a home. Your first few days in a house should be all about finding the best possible location for your collection of knickknacks, not tracking down an repair person because it's August and your air conditioning unit just froze. Educating yourself in the average life expectancy of these items will help you make the right choice for your home purchase and avoid those emergency calls the repair person.

These items are also important if you are thinking of putting your home on the market. Prospective Buyers will pay careful attention to costly repairs if they are seeking a home in "move in" condition and these repairs may effect the overall sale price of your home. Informing your Realtor of the current repairs & improvements to the home will make the overall sale process much smoother and ensure you receive the proper value of your home. "This home has a new... read article
