Fall Into Home Decor

Fall is a busy season. Back-to-School, holiday after holiday, and for those of us in the real estate business, the market doesn’t necessarily cool down either. So, when it comes to the transition of my own home from a breezy Summer ‘hotel’ to a cozy Fall residence, I could use a little help. This guide makes decorating your home for Fall a cake walk. Start with color and let your imagination run wild. Take ideas for tabletop decorating and incorporate them into the entry or around the fireplace. All of us are suckers for a cozy Fall home that looks staged yet totally lived-in. This guide is a good start to getting you on your booted feet just in time for the season!

And if you’re into this sort of thing – and want to do it right, here’s a great guide on Halloween decor!


What’s Your Lucky Number?

Okay, while there are a multitude of reasons for whether or not a home might be for you, the science behind the numbers is something we’ve never fully considered. A home’s address, listing price, number of bedrooms, or floor level, may often have a considerable impact on a potential buyers’ decision to purchase. The role of numerology in our decision-making can have a dramatic impact on home buyers’ and sellers’ actions. The number 8 is considered lucky in Chinese culture and many Chinese buyers will snatch up properties where the number 8 is prevalent. In Jewish culture, the number 18 holds the same weight, while in America, the number 13 is considered unlucky and often seen as an omen of bad luck to come. Whether or not numerology is your thing, it’s important to consider the weight of numbers on your home’s listing price, a home’s address, and numbers associated with a potential buy. Has numerology ever played a role in your real estate decision-making?


The One-Year Countdown

Timelines can be helpful, worrisome, or tedious…or perhaps all of the above! When it comes to buying a home, it’s helpful to have a timeline on which you can base your progress on. If you’re a first-time homebuyer, this year-out timeline may be even more helpful, giving you suggestions on down payment plans, budgeting, creating a priority list in a potential home, and researching Realtors and Loan Officers to help you get the job done efficiently and properly. Thinking ahead can ensure that you don’t miss anything along the way like effectively researching neighborhoods and budgeting for new miscellaneous home expenses. Being prepared in an organized and stress-free manner by using a timeline can make the homebuying and homesearching process much more fun and ultimately, successful.
