Have you been to the Buliding Industry Association of Louisville’s Homearama 2017 yet? If you have been or not, you can catch up on the kitchen and bathroom trends here! If you’re looking to incorporate these trends into your home or buy a new home here is some inspiration from the kitchens in our homes in Rock Springs and Saratoga Springs:

Pendant Lights

Pendant lights are popping up everywhere to brighten up counter tops and kitchen islands. Choosing unique pendant lights is an inexpensive and easy way to change the look of kitchen.

The industrial pendant lights hanging above the dining table and kitchen island give this kitchen a cohesive and modern feel.

Even though the look of these lights are different, the metal and glass work well together to give the space a modern and industrial look.

Looking to sell your home? Paint it this color!

Written by LRG intern, Savannah Wafford 

Feeling blue? Thats okay! That is if you are painting your home. 

It seems that color can make a big impact on how much your home can sell for. A new report from Zillow found that homes painted in blue and gray tones could sell faster and for more. Zillow found that homes painted in these tones could sell for up to $5,440 more. The report looked at photos from over 32,000 homes sold around the country to see how paint colors affected the selling price. The report found that living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms that featured hues of blue and gray added value to homes.

On the other hand, there are colors that you should steer clear from when selling your home. Homes with darker walls and colors like terracotta were selling for up to $2,000 less than expected. The biggest turn off for home buyers? No color at all. Homes with white and off-white bathrooms sold for over $4,000 less on average than similar homes.

So if you are planning on selling your home soon, a quick coat of paint could make all the difference! Looking for inspiration? Check out the photos below.

5 Reasons You Should Always Use an Agent

Written by LRG Intern Alex Ginter


Think you can DIY this whole real estate thing when it comes to selling your house? Think again! Here are five reasons why you should ALWAYS consider teaming up with an agent.


1. Agents Have a Larger Network and More Experience

Real estate can be tricky and on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service), it even has its own language. Are you looking to buy a 2BR/2.5BA with an EIK and W/D? Someone without much of a real estate background wouldn't look at this and see "2 bedroom, 2 and a half bathroom with an eat-in kitchen and washer/dryer," but an agent would! This language is second nature for them. 

Agents also have access to many more listings than the average person. Sure you can find loads of houses on Zillow, Realtor.com, and other listing services, but agents will most likely know the search area and homes that aren't publicly advertised. "Sometimes properties are available but not actively advertised and a Realtor can help you find those hidden gems." (Realtor.com)

2. Negotiating is Tricky

"Realtors have the expertise to help you prepare a killer deal—while avoiding delays or costly mistakes that can seriously mess you up," according to Realtor.com.

Your real estate agent is the middle-man and does all your monetary dirty work. Forbes puts...
