    Even though summer is still in full swing, autumn will be here before we know it!  If you’re in the mood to start shopping for fall home decor, this is a great time to find on-trend items that will make it easy to transition your home from summer to fall.  To help you get started, today I’m sharing the top fall home decor trends and design styles for 2022, along with affordable fall decor finds and autumn decorating ideas. 

    When is the best time to start decorating for fall?

    I like to start scouting out the fall decorating trends in late August or early September, but I don’t usually get too excited about fall decorating until the weather cools down a bit — or at least by the first day of fall (which falls on September 22 this year).

    Whenever you decide to start decorating, you’ll find that adding a touch of fall style to your home can be easy.  Simply layer in some warmer, richer colors and weave in a few fall accents in a variety of textures to quickly transition your home from summer to fall.

THE SKY IS NOT FALLING! This is just what a normal real estate market looks like…

Look at any headline lately and it would seem the Real Estate market is headed for a crash. But if you look at the overall nationwide numbers and really delve into the actual stats it turns out we are more likely just entering a more normal market. As opposed to the crazed pent up Covid frenzy market we are emerging from. According to Mike Ferry Organization, the number one Real Estate Training and Coaching Company in the Nation for 45 years, here are 14 changes taking place as I am writing this:

1.     Days on the market (DOM) has extended and is continuing to extend.

2.     Inventory nationally is growing.

3.     There are fewer Covid pandemic buyers today and less coming.

4.     Price reductions are now in play.

5.     Interest rates will fluctuate and continue to go up and down.

6.     Having choices is good with more homes on the market.

7.     There are fewer showings and fewer offers per listing today.

8.     The projection trends MFO sees for the second half of the year are declining with less in the second half than in the first half of the year.

9.     Prices are flattening out. Not everywhere-but in many areas across the country.

10.  Expired listings are coming back faster than ever.

11.  The number of transactions falling apart is increasing.

12.  Some offers coming in now are below list price.

13.  Contingencies and home inspections are back in play on offers.

14.  Seller’s concessions are coming back as well. I.e.. Sellers paying buyers closing costs, seller bonuses etc.


As we continue to watch and navigate the emerging real estate market one thing is certain… and that is change. It is anyone’s guess what that actually looks like in 2023 but one thing if for sure, we will be right there, alongside learning and creating possibilities for our clients. And remember, whatever the market brings there is always opportunity.

Tips for Choosing the Right Size Outdoor Wall Lights


Find Your Lighting Style

The lighting you use around your home plays a pivotal role in shaping the aesthetic of your home's exterior. Narrowing your style can make the search for lighting simple. Here are a few tips to help you find the ideal wall lighting style for your home.

  • Consider the façade of your home and make note of any unique qualities. Does your home feature lots of curved accents? Perhaps your home is more modern and built with clean geometric lines. Take your home’s architectural features into account when looking for outdoor lighting.
  • Match your new outdoor lighting fixtures to existing fixtures around your home. For example, if you have a brass door handle and knocker, adding light fixtures that are made with a similar brass finish can give your home a cohesive, well-designed look. 
  • Look for outdoor lighting fixtures that match your home’s trim. If you have dark trim on a white house, a dark lighting fixture can blend in even if doesn’t match all other fixtures. Coordinating your lighting to your trim generally gives your home visual balance. 
  • Pair your lights to outdoor furniture and accessories. Match your metal dining table or complement your pool furniture if you’re shopping for wall lights to illuminate these areas.

Is Pandemic Purchasing on the decline? What can sellers expect over next 6 months?

It appears the bubble of people buying real estate is declining. This according to Industry leader Mike Ferry who has been tracking real estate sales nationwide for 30+ years.

So what can sellers expect over next 6 months? It is expected that inventory will increase, days on the market will go up as well which can have a strong negative effect on home values flattening out. The record number of offers on listings have also declined over last two months. Another indication of a flattening market is the increase in expired listings. These are all indications of declining market in the next quarter. We will continue to monitor the market to stay on top of these changes.
