Now that fall's here, it’s cool enough outside to paint the inside of your home while leaving the windows open to help get rid of the smell. It's also one of the easiest ways to turn a house into your new home is with some fresh paint colors.

But you don’t want to slap any color on those walls. You want your house to be on trend too. Elle Décor has some tips on what new home paint trends are going to define 2018. “While 2017 was all about tropical green, warm neutrals, and sophisticated camel accents, we predict that next year will be full of even edgier hues,” Sara Tardiff said.

Back in March, we talked about why you should have renters’ insurance. Today, we’re going to talk about how to figure out how much insurance you should have.

In some rental cases, insurance isn’t required. According to an NMHC Apartment Cost of Risk Survey, in 2012, 84% of property management firms had mandated renters insurance. Unfortunately, requiring renters to have insurance didn’t guarantee residents kept their policies active while living at that apartment community. In fact, 30% of third-party renters insurance policies were canceled within the lease term. At that time, an average community had no proof of insurance for 19% of its occupied units.

However, with the low cost of insurance and how much it covers, it’s in the renters’ best

You’ve decided to have your next home built for you. No matter what kind of floor plan you choose, now is the time to work with the builder to make that house your home.

“One of the advantages of purchasing a new home is the opportunity to select features and finishes that reflect your own personal tastes and lifestyle. But for many homebuyers, particularly first timers, the array of choices can be dizzying,” wrote Robyn Friedman of New Home Source.

To make those selections a little less intimidating, we’ll go through your new home one room at a time. Today, let’s talk about the fixtures for your new bathroom. Your builder may have a series of fixtures in different colors and sizes for you to choose. Keep in mind, if you want fixtures or details

Friday, Sept. 15 is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. This annual event, honoring our missing service members and their families, shouldn't be a day for only for our military communities, but it should also be recognized by our civilian communities as well. It highlights the government’s commitment to account for those missing service members. America’s POW/MIAs should be honored and recognized, rather than memorialized, with the focus on the continuing commitment to account for those still missing.

Support for these missing Americans and their families is strong. In Hampton Roads, our military’s presence is strongly felt, woven into our daily lives. "The total Department of Defense population, including active duty and civilian personnel

Did you know September is National REALTOR® Safety Month? The average client might not think about the risk factors associated with being an agent. As the Chicago Association of REALTORS® said, “The mere nature of the real estate business puts agents at risk on a daily basis. REALTORS® are a prime target for criminals due to frequent contact with strangers in various public and private locations, and REALTORS® face more on-the-job risks than many other business professionals.”

American Home Shield offers a list of safety tips for agents to take into consideration.

Take a safety seminar.

With a vigorous housing market, many landlords are interested in listing one or more of their income properties for sale. Many homeowners with a single rental became landlords unintentionally when their personal home didn’t sell several years ago when the market was slow. Now that a timely sale at a fair price is a realistic expectation, these landlords are anxious to divest themselves of their rental property holdings.

There are some considerations when listing a rental property that is subject to a lease, including:

  • length of lease term remaining
  • whether the property can be sold with the tenant in place to another investor
  • restrictions the lease may contain regarding access or time frame for marketing
  • quality of the tenant/manager

Because you’re having a new home built for your family, you might think you don’t need to worry about having an inspection done when construction is finished. But now that your house is complete, it’s time for the final walkthrough with your builder.

This walkthrough isn’t meant to “nit-pick” your builder’s work. Instead, it’s a way to make sure your new home meets your expectations, specifications and passes all state safety and legal requirements, before you take possession of it. If it’s not, you can still raise an issue. If you use your final walkthrough to thoroughly inspect your future home, you might avoid costly repairs or extra work on your part further down the road.
