(Sellstate Partners Realty)
  The major challenge in today’s housing market is that there are more buyers looking to purchase than there are homes available to buy. Simply put, supply can’t keep up with demand. A normal market has a 6-month supply of homes for sale. Anything over that indicates it’s a buyers’ market, but an inventory level below that threshold means we’re in a sellers’ market. Today’s inventory level sits far below the norm. According to the Existing Home Sales Report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR): “Total housing inventory at the end of April amounted to 1.16 million units, up 10.5% from March's inventory and down 20.5% from one year ago (1.46 million). Unsold inventory sits at a 2.4-month supply at the current sales pace, slightly up from March's 2.1-month supply and down from t...

Before you reach for that paintbrush, think about wallpaper. We are not talking about the green or yellow floral wallpaper designs you remember from your grandmother’s kitchen. Today, wallpaper can bring exciting colors, patterns, and textures into any space. Know the pros and cons of wallpaper before you decide to paint your walls. If you have a room full of solid color furnishings, a patterned wallpaper can add new dimensions to your home. Without changing a single piece of furniture, you will feel as though the entire room has changed. PROS OF USING WALLPAPERS LONG-LASTING DURABILITYPaint often needs retouching or repainting every two to five years, depending on children, pets, and traffic. Using wallpaper for a room instead of color can provide 10 to 15 years of durability. VISUAL A...

 Buying a house can be overwhelming, and making your down payment can be especially stressful if you don’t have all the correct information. In this article, we’ll help you understand the importance of a down payment when buying your home. What is a Down Payment? A down payment is a money you pay upfront to the seller of the home. The total purchase price of the home is split between your down payment and the remainder that you choose to finance through your lender. Many buyers put down as much as 20% of the purchase price, which lets you avoid private mortgage insurance, but there are loan options that make it possible to put a down payment as low as 3.5%. Your down payment will be an important aspect when you decide to buy your home. For example, if you don’t have a great credit score...

Here are tips for selecting the bests colors:  Consider your color preference Don't be afraid to go wild such as incorporating black Have a theme you want to base your color selection on Consider input from other people  Besides renovating to live in a more luxurious home, you may also renovate to sell your home. Doing so can significantly improve the value of your home, and you may find yourself selling it sooner rather than later. However, this does not mean that all the improvements you will make will increase the value of your home.
