Buyer demand is as strong as ever, and home builders are helping to meet the need for more home choices with a huge uptick in production, as you can read about in the above report.

Glenbrook

Location: Garland, Texas

Price: $425,000

This 1965 home in Garland, Texas oozes serious Mad Men vibes. Recently updated, the three-bedroom-three-bath measures 4,214 square feet and offers period living enhanced with contemporary updates.

The spacious split-level floor plan includes a front parlor space and a warm, wood-paneled step-down great room. Here, beamed ceilings, an impressive fireplace, and a wall of windows create a cozy space, replete with period carpeting that doesn’t feel stuffy and instead ups the mod vibe.

Get out.

Those were the first words out of my mouth when I opened the photos of 10849 Clearbrook: Get. Out. An ardent fan of midcentury modern architecture, I feel a very strong mix of awe and envy when encountering a specimen like this one. You have your sports, I have my midcentury houses. Properties like this make me giddy – and it doesn’t hurt that this stop on the upcoming White Rock Home Tour is furnished to delight the eye.

Realtor Brandon Stewart has had the pleasure of selling the home twice – once in 2012, before the house underwent massive renovations and again in 2014, to the current owner and friend, Jeri Paduch. He shared with us the pre-renovation photos, which give us even more appreciation for its current

Brandon Stewart listed this midcentury modern when it came on the market back in 2014, and luck would have it that the buyers are now his clients as sellers.

And though we do love a time warp, we cannot deny that the sellers have done an exceptional job with updating this lovely Lochwood home, our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans. We know it’s tough to be a buyer in this market, and if you’re already in love with this beauty in scorching hot East Dallas, better move fast and call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans to get pre-approved today.

Of course, Stewart knows how we love a good before/after story, so jump to see what this amazing mid-mod looked like just a couple of years

Every year, different paint companies come up with color predictions based on what they’re seeing in the marketplace and our culture. The colors of the year are symbolic, “a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude,” according to Pantone.

The proliferation of services that help homebuyers and sellers complete their own real estate transactions is relatively recent, and it may have you wondering whether using a real estate agent is becoming a relic of a bygone era. While doing the work yourself can save you the significant commission rates many real estate agents command, for many, flying solo may not be the way to go–and could end up being more costly than a realtor’s commission in the long run. Buying or selling a home is a major financial (and emotional) undertaking. Find out why you shouldn’t discard the notion of hiring an agent just yet.

1. Better Access/More Convenience

A real estate agent’s full-time job is to act as a liaison between buyers and sellers.
