Americans are becoming more optimistic about the economy, but Consumer Confidence toward the housing market is lagging as a whole. Likely bolstered by a strengthening employment sector, the share of consumers who believe the economy is headed in the right direction improved by 5 percentage points to 41 percent. Those citing that the economy is heading in the wrong direction declined to 51 percent, the sixth consecutive monthly decrease. However, although the share of respondents who think it would be easy to get a mortgage today increased to 52 percent, despite the small spike in interest rates, the share who say their household income is significantly higher than it was 12 months ago has remained flat at 25 percent.

Sometimes it can be a challenge convincing the home seller to use a certified staging professional so I created some visuals using the latest, 2014-2015 statistics to assist agents in getting the point across to their clients. Professional home staging is not only for homes that are a “mess” but it also makes a huge difference in the selling price for homes that are “typical”.

In fact, statistics show that it doesn’t matter whether the home is vacant, occupied, a fixer or a beauty — when a certified staging professional gets a hold of it, an average 10 percent better sales price can be expected!

The Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University recently released a fantastic study concerning Americans' relationship with real estate in the years following the Great Recession and housing bust! 

What the study found, in short, was that continuing lack of jobs, debt (both student loans and more traditional debt), and slow income growth, nationalls home sales are lagging at near historic lows. Homeownership in the U.S., according to this "State of the Nation's Housing" report, is only at roughly 65%... a historic low not since since 1993. More than 20 years.

But Is That the Whole Picture?

However, the study also goes on to say that as recently as this past month, first time buyers are beginning to re-enter the market. This is driven

 There's almost nothing more frustrating than looking for the perfect home on-line, falling in love, and then realizing that the home is under contract. What does under contract mean, and why do websites display contracted listings? There are several answers.

How Can I See Contracted Listings?

It is unfortunate but true that many national real estate websites (such as Trulia and Zillow) generally do not display up-to-date information. In fact, some data can be weeks, months, or years old... but still be available on these websites to attract more visitors. This is why it is important to do home searching on a reputable real estate agent or brokerage's website: often, these websites are constructed to be most beneficial to the searcher, not the

Guess who's searching for smaller, more efficient, more economical homes? Millenials! 

A January press release published by the NAHB reported that millenials searching for single family homes are searching for an interesting mix of things, including smaller and more affordable homes... but also for homes with some interesting inclusions. Like separate laundry rooms.

What's the Scoop?

The report also concluded that millenials are prone to searching for homes with Energy Star certifications, lots of additional storage space, and homes build to accomodate modern technology in the living space. Low-maintenance homes are big on the list of wants, as millenials as a generation seem to have less disposable income.

Millenials are more likely to

Mad Men is a hit show featuring midcentury styles and the suave mannerisms of protagonist Don Draper: a smooth-talking New York marketing exec with a storied past. Now, the home used to portray his upstate residence is for sale! Since the beginning of the series, two other homes featured on the show have also been listed.

The Home Itself

 The 1914 Colonial was filmed most during the pilot, and features 6 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, tiled and wallpapered bathrooms, and manicured lawns. It also features exposed brick fireplaces, built-in cabinets and bookcases, high ceilings, a wide staircase, and dozens of other luxury amenities.

H.G. Hill Realty has completed work in Green Hills, Hillsboro Village, 12 South, Belle Meade, 100 Oaks, and even Charlotte Avenue. And now they've gone on record saying they're starting their biggest project yet: a development which they believe will become the 'town center' of Brentwood. The groundbreaking ceremony occurred this last Tuesday. 

The Price

In interviews, the developer has released that they will be asking $34 per square foot as rent for office space. Despite this hefty price tag, Brentwood offers an extreme shortage of office space to local businesses. As Brentwood now tops over 40,000 local residents, this price, though high, may be just what the area needs.

The Space

According to reports, the space (once planned to also offer
