The holidays bring out a plethora of emotions and this year real estate is doing that as well. There just aren’t enough homes out there for everyone who wants to move. The Austin Board of Realtors® does a great job creating the infographics I post every month. The data certainly tells the story, but the graphics really paint the picture. It is hard to express how hot the market is to people until I can actually show them. Some buyers think only the particular market they are looking in is hot.

I went on a couple of listing consultations last week. My listing consultation includes a home tour so that I have an idea of the updates, upgrades, and other bells and whistles the home might have.

Understanding some basic principles of Feng Shui can help bring you and your home back into balance. A stress free home is not only important for every homeowner, but it is important to a potential buyer as well. A happy home is easier to sell.
Feng Shui Principles when Selling a Home
Chi is energy. Star Wars fans may identify more with the idea of The Force. The energy that binds the galaxy together is the chi that flows through us and our homes. When our chi is blocked, energy is zapped and we feel sad. Houses are no different than living beings when it comes to chi. When chi is constantly flowing through our homes – we feel good.
