Painting Your House This Summer? Here's Some Help Deciding on Colors

It's such a big decision . . . what color to paint your house!  It's a really hard decision to make.  It's difficult to imagine your home a different color than it is right now, so often people just paint it the same color.  At least you know what you're going to get, right?

To choose the right colors you need to take into consideration the color of your roof and other items that are part of your house that will not be painted as well as the style of your home and your personal tastes.  Do you want your home to stand out in the neighborhood, or blend in with the surrounding homes?  There are many things to consider.

Here's a link to a quick 'quiz' on Houzz that may help you decide what colors speak to you.  If that doesn't help you decide, most of the paint stores, as well as the big box stores, have online color pickers that allow you to upload a photo of your home and experiment with virtual colors.  Here's a link to Sherwin-Williams virtual house painter.

Happy house painting!

Many Opportunities to Buy New Construction in Dutchess County

Are you a potential home buyer in the Mid-Hudson Valley who just can't find the right home?  Well you're not alone.  There are lots of frustrated buyers out there who have already looked at everything in their price range but just haven't found the home that makes them want to pull the trigger.

There is some good news this Spring and Summer.  Builder confidence is up.  This means more builders (and their banks) are investing in new subdivisions.  This has created many more opportunities for buyers.

In Dutchess County alone there are hundreds of opportunities to either purchase a newly-constructed home that is 'nearly' completed, get on the ground floor of a home that has just been started, commit to build with the builder in a new subdivision, or purchase raw land and hire your own builder.
