Adding Personality While Playing It Safe
There's no trend like an interior trend, and while it always seems like the right choice to stick to the straight and narrow when it comes to design, we've dubbed this year as the year for bold interiors (but done only with sophistication.) We're all about adding personality to a space (wallpapers, prints, and rich accents), and playing it safe with some of the more permanent design elements (cabinetry, backsplashes, counter tops.) Here's a few ways to support that approach:

Everyone knows timing is everything. Increasingly, fall is emerging as the best time to buy a house. There have been more than 32 million home sales since 2000 and it’s been found that buyers get the very best price in October. Rule of thumb that everyone seems to be familiar with though, is that Spring is typically the notorious time to buy a home. And while history has always seemed to favor that scenario, it seems that autumn has undeniable factors that just may contribute to the timing of your big purchase. The best time to buy a home is when market conditions are preferable, competition is low, and interest rates are on the decline. Here are a few expert insights as to why you should consider possibly investing in real estate this time of year.…

Our agent Dan Schneider and his husband Paul are a dynamic duo -- Dan holds the real estate license, Paul is a contractor and together, they offer their clients an immense amount of experience when it comes to renovating, rehabbing and even staging homes for the market.
One day in passing, Dan casually showed me this 'flip' they did years ago and I nearly fell over when I saw the change. Talk about curb appeal! I love everything about this custom reno -- and asked Dan to share some insight into what went into this impressive project.
A little insight from Dan on this project:
The sellers were concerned about potential hassles that might occur during the selling process and wanted the process to be as easy as possible. While it…
I think it is safe to say most people in real estate love home design. So when this listing popped up in my timeline, I knew I had to share it.
Frank Lloyd Wright became a cultural icon for his unique design style so it makes sense that those architects who worked under him also gained some traction for their connection to the legend.

What caught my attention was the amount of natural light in every room. Wouldn't want to clean those windows but my goodness, do they make for a picturesque view!

But tastes and lifestyles have shifted in the decades since many of those homes were built. Today, buyers of all ages — but especially millennials — tend to prefer smaller, more modern-style houses in walkable neighborhoods near urban…
