After two years, gray still remains the most popular home interior color. It’s sophisticated, yet allows homeowners to create an ambiance of their choosing by mixing it with a variety of colors. In fact, gray has become the new “white”, thanks to it’s versatility and ability to pair well with practically any color.
Not only does home technology provide convenience and efficiency, but it also allows homeowners a taste of a ‘futuristic’ living. The most popular home technology features this year? The Nest Thermostat, Cree LED Connected Bulbs which allow you to control your lighting and energy usage from wherever you are, and Amazon’s Echo, a “Siri” for your house.
It’s still a Seller’s Market
In San Antonio, homes are selling less than 30 days after listing on the market with some homes even selling one or two days after hitting the market! What does this mean? If you’re looking to sell your home soon, now is the time to do it. It’s a seller’s market because of how quickly and how little inventory is staying on the market.
We are excited to see what 2016 has in store for our industry. Make sure you check back often for the latest industry news, trends, and home listings on our blog. Happy end of 2015!
