For this quarters newsletter I found some great information to share with you. I hope you find this useful. As always, please feel free to contact me with any of your real estate questions or needs.  
Houzz :
A Bridge from Internet to Reality

The past decade has completely changed the way the housing industry is run. Consumers now have access to countless amounts of information just via their smartphone or tablet. A recent client of mine and I were talking and he stated "I can’t believe I pretty much purchased a house on my iPhone". From filling out contracts to confirming appointments, technology has made it easier for realtors to connect with their clients at a faster pace. Recently, a new website called Houzz has made a great way for clients to get ideas, share ideas or ask questions regarding many aspects of home design, repairs, renovations and many other areas of owning or selling a home. If you are a software engineer, or barely know how to send out a text, Houzz is very user friendly with thousands of active users! The best part about it, it is free to use! Get started now and share your ideas!

Home Improvements
to Add Value

I recently have been getting a lot of questions from clients who purchased homes a number of years ago and are thinking of selling today. Does it make financial sense in this current market to fix up prior to selling, or sell as is? recently came out with an article of top projects homeowners can do to add value. While it is rare for one to receive a return of one to one, these projects can add some value and attract a larger pool of buyers! Find out here where your money is best used!

Everyday we are so inundated with bad news. We read the newspaper, twitter, watch the news etc. You may not realize it, but all the negative energy we are surrounded by, actually rubs off onto others around us. Shawn Achor is an educator, author and speaker known for his research and advocacy for "Positive Psychology". A video from a speaking engagement was recently uploaded on Ted Talks and has been viewed millions of times. Watch Shawn discuss how doing a few simple items everyday can make not only for a better workplace, but a healthier life as well.
