Buyers - What's Important to YOU?

Thu, Feb 21st 2019 3:30 pm by Samantha Havens Around Town

Today's current real estate market still leans toward a favorable seller's market meaning, there is not an overload of inventory out there for buyers to choose from thus giving sellers a slight advantage when selling their homes.

But, not to worry!  Thanks to the wealth of online information available to buyers coupled with your agent's expertise and advise, buyers can expect to negotiate a mutually acceptable deal that allows them to walk away with the house they want. 

The question is:

*What DO you want? 

*What is most important thing/s you search for when shopping for homes? 

Obviously you will have already narrowed down an area based on personal preference, school zones, ...

Are Dining Rooms a Thing of the Past?

Wed, Jun 17th 2015 9:43 am by Samantha Havens Around Town

Trends come and go but it seems that this one has been emerging for quite some time and people seem to really like it…. gone are the days of formal dining rooms!

For most, the traditional dining room is rarely used and therefore becomes wasted space in your home or a drop off for more clutter.  Is it really necessary to dedicate precious square footage for a room you might use once or twice a year when families gather for holidays?  What's your take?  Would you rather use this space for something more meaningful in your everyday life?
