What is Home Depot’s Project Color App and Why Would You Use It?

Both Connecticut home buyers and home sellers will agree, the number one answer to what is the best home improvement project to perform is painting the walls with a fresh coat of paint. When selling your home the rule of thumb is to go neutral to attract the most amount of buyers. However, if you are a home buyer and recently closed on your new home in Connecticut, you can go all out and paint with any colors you desire. Some decide to go with their favorite sports team or a really bright or bold color. The trend today is also to do an accent wall to make a statement.

But what is the correct color and how do you choose one correctly? Home Depot tackled this challenge with the release of the Home Depot’s Project Color app for both your iPhone or Android device.

This app was designed to tackle the challenge of ensuring that you are confident in your paint color decision by allowing you to take a photo of a room or choose a “live view” and digitally paint the room with any of the 1000’s of available paint and stain colors. Check out the commercial below to see how Home Depot is marketing the app.

Can Saint Joseph’s Statue Sell Your House Fast?

Are you looking for a little extra help selling your Connecticut house? There is a way that seems to work for many realtors and home owners alike. It is as simple as planting a Saint Joseph’s Statue for luck in your real estate efforts. According to a New York report, an increasing number of people is seeking the help of ‘Patron Saint of Real Estate’ in the hopes that it will help solve their selling woes issues.

Joseph may have been a carpenter, but apparently he can turn around the situation and help you sell your house if you have a little faith. And you need not be a Catholic for this to work. The legend of burying a statue of St. Joseph in the compound of a home that you are trying to sell dates back to a thousand years. The tradition holds that because St. Joseph is the patron saint of homes and family, praying to him and burying his statue around the property will help you in getting a quick sale offer.

One of the top questions that I am asked as a real estate agent is, “how can someone inexpensively improve their home to increase the chances of selling for the most amount of money”?

Everything you ever wanted to know about the home inspection contingency in Connecticut!

Congratulations! After all that hard work of preparing your home to sell, having strangers wander around your home and judging it critically, tense negotiations with buyers and ultimately accepting a contract (which became official when the deposit check was received) and you have entered into what is called escrow. In Connecticut, typically the sellers real estate broker holds the deposit in their escrow account until closing or both parties sign off on it’s release.

This is an important milestone and you should take some time to celebrate, my favorite spot for a celebration dinner is at South Windsor’s the Mill on the River restaurant or Manchester’s Stone and Paddle. However, keep in mind your house is not really “SOLD” yet! This is where the conditions of the contract called “contingencies” have to be removed in order for the contract to really be binding. First the most common type of contingency you will be up against is the home inspection contingency.
