Boardwalk Beach Resort
Panama City Beach hosts a lot of great places to live and stay, but Boardwalk Beach Resort definitely lands in the top five. Condominium owners and vacation owners alike absolutely love this place and there’s a reason it sticks out amongst all the other competition in the area.
Because Boardwalk Beach Resort was built at a time when many other places were also being built, sometimes referred to as “the boom”, the builder knew he needed to do something to make this place different from the rest. Due to his interior finishes, larger than average balconies, crown moldings, and beautiful granite...

Staging and White-Boxing
Staged real estate properties are fast becoming a thing of the past. Staging meant that if you were selling a property, you would furnish it, repaint, conduct repairs, etc. to make it marketable. Today, luxury sellers and buyers, both on the East Coast and the West Coast, are doing the opposite of staging, what they are calling “white-boxing.”
A few years ago, to buy or to sell a home, buyers and sellers normally would like to see a home in a lived-in condition which is why staging was always so popular. Staging seemed to perpetuate the idea that sellers would get more money from marketing their property in a fashionable manner.
Now there is an alternative. White-boxing is about the stark reality of showing bare walls, bare floors, and bare ceilings. What remains after fringe accessories and furnishings...

Selling Without a Realtor and The Cost
The first thing many homeowners think of when the idea of selling their home comes up is which Realtor they should use. However, when you decide not to list your home with a real estate agent, this could mean more money in your pocket. Because the housing market is on the rise, this may sound appealing. However, is it the best decision? Ultimately, homeowners would like to see as much profit as possible when they sell a home. With such a large volume of houses going on the market regularly, raising prices isn't reasonable. It's at that point that the idea of paying an average real estate agent salary...

A Look Back: Architecture And Design Single Family Living
Houses have changed immensely over the last hundred years. Due to variations in style, additions of indoor plumbing, heating and cooling systems, and construction materials, many different factors have played a role in the preparation of the homes we have sold and lived in. The structure of our homes affects our family size, our relationships, and ultimately, the way we all relate to each other as we step outside to begin our day. Let's take a look at how American homes over the last century have helped shape us historically as a country and as a society.
Adapting To The New World
The first North American homes were small one-room homes built to stand the harsh conditions of an unsettled territory. Local materials were used, and...

Hot Trend: Bitcoin and Real Estate
Back in 2013, a seller in Long Island, NY listed his home with an interesting side note. He was willing to accept Bitcoins for the $800,000 property. He was hoping to appeal to international and younger buyers by giving them another option to purchase his property. This was a time when Bitcoin was more of a fascination for geeks and financial tycoons so the real estate industry was taken by surprise by the odd offer made by the seller. With the recent wide adoption of Bitcoin around the globe, the real estate industry is no longer a stranger to the cryptocurrency. Does the future of real estate center on this creative financing when it comes time to buy a home? This question is brewing in the industry circles and we are going to explore it for you right here.

How Virtual Reality Is Changing Real Estate
When it comes time to buy a home, it has always been left up to the imagination of the buyers to dream about how the house would look with their own furniture and decorations. Real estate agents can tell you, it can sometimes be a hard thing to do. Not all buyers can easily imagine a space as their own, and more often than not, the buyers will pass on a house if the property is not staged in a manner they find attractive or appealing. This is one reason a seller and their real estate agent will spend countless hours discussing how the property presents itself to buyers. Staging companies have been very successful in making homes sparkle for the non-imaginative buyer mind, but there is always a factor of chance. Real estate ...

Preparing a Home to Sell
Selling a house can be a windfall or a terrible loss. The price you get for your home when you sell it can vary wildly depending on the way you prepare your home before putting it on the market. Home staging and making important repairs prior to selling can add thousands of dollars to your selling price. Real estate has its ups and downs, but one thing any seller can bet on is that they will get a higher price for their home if they prepare it strategically to command top dollar. By thinking like a potential buyer, it is easier to imagine what a seller can do to get a better price.
