Making a Good First Impression with Your Home Foyer

The entrance to your house is the first thing your guests will experience during their visit. Because your home is a direct reflection of your taste and personality, it’s important to give your guests a positive first impression. What does your entryway say about you? Does it reflect your sense of style and make your guests feel welcome? Or is it bare, unorganized, piled with clutter, or completely chaotic? In order to create a space that is both useful and inviting, you’ll want to impress your guests with pleasant and organized surroundings. Here are a few tips that will help you create a room that will please your guest, as well as provide you with a welcoming place to come home to.

Cities that are On a Growing Trend

Forbes has released its rankings of the 20 fastest growing cities for 2014. Texas dominated the list, with Austin coming in 1st for the fourth year in a row. Dallas came in 4th, which is a slip down from 3rd last year, and Houston came in at number 10, a huge drop from number 2 last year.  

Each year, Forbes ranks the 100 most populous Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) using data from Moody’s Analytics to assess growth in three areas: population growth, job growth, and economic growth. They combine this with the federal unemployment data and the median salaries of college-educated workers living in the area, to rank the 20 fastest growing cities in America.

Will Anonymous Apps Become the Future?

More than ever before, people are sharing their personal lives on the internet. From social networks like Facebook and Twitter, to photo sharing sites like Instagram and Flickr, people are actively sharing anything and everything, all under their real names. From publishing the details of a pregnancy, to issuing a political manifesto, the public rules for social sharing have changed. 

Perhaps as a result of all this public sharing, a new trend of anonymous social networks has sprung up. This new wave of apps promises anonymity for people who want to participate, and yet keep their privacy intact. In fact, some people think that these anonymous apps will become the social networks of the future. Here’s a look at some anonymous apps available now.

How Do Restaurants Get You to Spend More Money?

We’ve all done it. Ordered that pre-dinner appetizer, had one extra glass on wine, maybe even indulged in dessert. But somehow, when the bill comes we are still shocked by how much larger the total is than we were expecting. How do restaurants do it? Think back to the last time you dined at a fancy restaurant. How quickly did they ask you if you wanted a cocktail or tell you about the special appetizer that was only available tonight? Restaurants have many tactics for opening up your pocketbook just a little bit wider.

Buyer's Remorse? Not with Your Dream Agent!

Buyer's Remorse? Not with Your Dream Agent!

Buying a house can be one of the biggest financial decisions that you will make in your life. The problem is that unlike a piece of clothing or a car, you can’t take it for a test drive. This can lead to ‘buyer’s remorse’, which can kick in even before you close and take possession of the house.

Buyer’s remorse is all the nagging questions and thoughts that make you second guess your decision. Did you pay too much? Is it in the right neighborhood? Will another house go on the market soon that may be better? Did you overlook something that might be a major problem down the road? Then there are the people around you who will question your choices, which will only exacerbate the problem. What can you do to determine if you’re experiencing buyer’s remorse, and should you really listen to your gut?
