Quick and Easy Ways to Update Your Home's Style
Tiring of your years-old decor, but don't have a lot of time to shop, paint or redesign it all? 

Here are some fast, no-hassle ways to change up your space:
  • Get new pillows and throw blankets. Add a few colorful or patterned pillows and transform your old furniture instantly.
  • Rearrange. Move furniture from room to room and floor to floor, creating entirely new looks throughout.
  • Try peel and stick. There are peel-and-stick options for everything. Use them to quickly re-face cabinets, appliances, counters and doors-even walls.
Interior design doesn't have to be a huge investment of time and money. Get creative, re-use what you already have, and enjoy the ride.
How to Furnish Your New Home on a Budget
Furnishing your new home doesn't have to break the bank. 

Use these tips to find great pieces that won't run you dry:
  • Watch for garage and local estate sales. Your city's newspaper is a great place to start.
  • Use the NextDoor app and Facebook marketplace. Neighbors may be selling items just down the street.
  • Hit up thrift stores and consignment shops. These are especially great for finding art and decor.
  • Know your area's bulk trash day. Drive the neighborhood on bulk trash day to find any discarded furniture that could be rehabilitated.
You can also ask friends, family members and coworkers if they have unused furniture they'd part with.
How to Stand Out in the Busy Spring Buying Season
Spring is easily the most competitive season for home buyers. 

Want to make sure you stand out to a home seller this spring? Try these tips:
  • Get pre-approved for a mortgage. This gives sellers confidence in your offers.
  • Offer a solid earnest money deposit. More earnest money means less risk for the seller.
  • Include an offer letter. Tell the seller why you want the home and your personal story/motivations.
  • Act fast. Homes sell quickly in the spring and summer, so don't dawdle if there's a property you're interested in.
Having a great real estate agent on your side can give you a leg up, too, so reach out to me and ask for help!
