If your home features trends from the 90’s and early 2000’s, it may be time to freshen up your look. Check out our rundown of some of the ‘not so in’ styles and how you can make your humble abode stay on trend.  

Nautical Motifs
According to HGTV —  coastal accents like rope, anchors and seashells belong on the beach and not in your home. The nautical trend may have been big in recent years, but is now a thing of the past. Instead try a fresh color palette with subtle and simple furnishings.


Tuscan Kitchens

Dark rich woods, bulky fixtures and heavy granites were very popular in the early 2000’s. However, the modern day kitchen now focuses on open spaces and light, airy colors as opposed to a dark Italian-Style aesthetic.

Last quarter, we reported a slight decrease in number of sales or overall dollar volume of sales, or both, from the first quarter of 2017 to the first quarter of 2018. As we enter the second half of 2018, the consistent story now told across our beach and coastal communities is lower inventory to choose from.   Even though inventory is lower than this period in 2017, that isn't stopping buyers from decisively purchasing properties, or sellers from enjoying the demand and decreased competition.

Often, as a real estate broker we move through transactions like soldiers.  We do what we are trained to do:  solve problems, put out fires and (hopefully) make it look easy and all just part of the drill.  In my years of helping people buy and sell their properties, many of those experiences get tucked away when the property closes.  It is rare that I take the time to journal about the experiences that we have with the people we serve and the circumstances that take place along the way.  Some can be difficult, some painful, and some not-so-much.  What I can tell you is that they don’t all go so well and that this business is not for the faint of heart. In many industries, case studies are done to tell the story to readers who just might want to hear
