The interior forecast for 2017 is all about bringing comfort, ease, and a sense of personal style to the home. Whether building, remodeling or preparing to sell, fresh design features can make a big difference in the value of a home. Ahead, read some of the top trend predictions for the upcoming year.

Smart Technology

Today’s homeowner dreams of a fully automated home that’s controlled via smartphone or voice commands. And if innovative developments in smart-home technology continue as predicted, this fad isn’t fading anytime soon.

Natural Elements

Embrace the nature! No home that’s “on-trend” is complete without a touch of nature to bring the outdoors in.

Defined Living Spaces 

Don’t worry all you open-living design enthusiasts…the reappearance of defined living doesn’t mean open is out. But, as people spend more time immersed in technology at work, it’s becoming more important to have a space to relax at home.

Patterned Floors     

Whether it’s continuing a room’s monochromatic theme or adding an unexpected pop, take advice from the experts…don’t be afraid to play with pattern. Geometric tiled floors are known to make a serious statement.

Painted Cabinets

Be bold! Leave behind the all-white kitchen trend of 2016, and introduce a splash of color. Painted kitchen cabinets are a surefire way to keep cuisine colorful.

Set the Stage for Fall – Seven Tips for Home Staging that Sells

On average, a staged home sells 88 percent faster – and for 20 percent more – than a home that’s not, according to acclaimed professional stager Meridith Baer. Smart staging makes a major impact and creates an environment that leaves room for potential buyers to envision their own sense of style.

Reports from the National Association of Realtors state that homebuyers make their decision in the first 90 seconds of seeing a house. That’s why it’s important to work with an experienced real estate agent and even a professional stager to prepare your home to appeal to the broadest number of people and bring the highest dollar.

So how do you make the maximum impact in that first minute and a half? Consider these tips:

Open Houses: Powerful or Pointless?

09/26/2016
Don't fall for these myths! Here's the truth about open houses...

6436 Curzon Avenue. Open Sunday, 10-2 p.m. Photos / Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty

In the modern, tech-driven world of real estate, holding a traditional open house is a time-tested method of marketing that works. Still, when virtual open houses are available at buyers’ fingertips, sellers find it hard to understand the true value of including an open house in their marketing strategy. Do buyers still come to open houses? Do they sell homes, or just help agents meet prospective clients?

The decision to buy a home is almost always an emotional one. So, while looking online is the first step for most buyers, an in-person viewing is often what seals the deal.

Don’t close your door to potential buyers. We’re busting these common myths with the TRUTH about open houses:

MYTH: Open house attendees are usually just curious neighbors and nothing more.

TRUTH: Neighbors can be one of your best assets and mouthpieces when marketing a home for sale. They are interested in finding a good buyer to be their future neighbor.

3502 Cragmont Avenue. Open Sunday, 2-4 p.m. Listed by Shell Stegall.

MYTH: Open house visitors are not serious buyers. If they were ready and able to make a purchase they would be working with an agent to schedule private tours.

TRUTH: In today’s high-end real estate market, looking is a critical factor in the decision-making process. Many buyers are considering a move if – and only if – they find the perfect place. It can take years before they find a place that piques their interest enough to call their Realtor. Open houses include many of these quiet, yet serious, prospects.

4400 Belclaire Avenue. Open Sunday, 2-4 p.m. Listed by Tessa Mosteller and Lucinda Buford. 

MYTH: At an open house potential buyers are only looking at the home itself. As long as things are clean and tidy, the interior décor makes no difference.

TRUTH: Thoughtful staging is essential for a successful open house. It allows for a lot of traffic in a two-hour time frame…but you only have to prepare once. A professional real estate agent will help you showcase your home in a way that will resonate most with buyers.

4500 Roland Avenue #801. Open Sunday, 2-4 p.m. Listed by Meredith Houston.

MYTH: If an open house doesn’t result in a sale, it was a waste of time.

TRUTH: Open houses are fantastic opportunities to assess potential buyers’ reactions and evaluate your marketing strategies. Even those attending an open house with no intention of buying are a great source of unbiased feedback. A good agent will solicit feedback by encouraging visitors to leave comments, provide suggestions, and ask questions.
