What we need to do is make your home look more spacious and free from clutter. Here are three staging tips that will help make your home look larger.

1. SWAP COLORS FOR NEUTRAL TONES. White, grey and beige are your friends when staging your home. Swap brightly colored curtains or bed linens for white ones (even in the kids' rooms!).

Who doesn’t love a snow day? Cuddling on the couch with a mug of hot cocoa while watching movies can make anyone not want to venture out into the cold. Especially if you're a Texan.

The New Normal: A Strong Housing Market Expected to Continue into 2021

 

“2020 will be known for a lot of things, and a record-breaking year for real estate will certainly be one of its more unexpected legacies,” prominent economist Daryl Fairweather said.  And he’s right: most of us would have expected the housing market to suffer from circumstances like a once-in-a-hundred-years pandemic and historic inventory shortages.
