Fall is HERE!!

first-day-of-fall

It may not feel like Fall weather outside, but today is the FIRST day of Fall! With the change in the seasons we welcome cooler temps (hopefully soon) as well as other great things like pumpkins, cozy scarves, and grandma’s warm apple pie to name a few. Soon the leaves will begin to fall from the trees….rake them into a pile for some family leaf jumping fun!

The Fall real estate market is almost always a hot season. Home selling in autumn or fall is one of the best times of the year to sell a home. Families have returned from summer vacations and kids have gone back to school. The holidays aren’t yet upon us as we are set to enjoy a couple months of normalcy, and that is always a great time to sell or buy a home! Contact us today at 214-620-0411, we would love to help you “fall” into the home of your dreams!

Happy Labor Day from the Marr Team

Where did Labor Day come from you ask?

Labor Day was created as a way to acknowledge and pay tribute to the workforce for all that they have done to make our country prosperous and strong.

The first Labor Day was celebrated in New York City, and other cities followed this example in the following years. It was in 1894 that Congress passed a law making the first Monday of September a legal holiday.

Now that you know….we hope you have a fun and safe Labor Day! Thank you to all you hard workers out there, for all that you do!

Get your home back to school ready!

Back to school MARR TEAMThe start of a new school year speeds up the pace of life! Between the car pool line, football games, study sessions and the school projects, soon enough there will be little time to focus on home projects. Get organized and ahead of the chaos  for a successful and stress-free school year with these three simple tips.

Tip 1: Organize and De-Clutter! Make room for new supplies first by getting rid of unnecessary items from the prior year. Once you can start from a clean slate there are many accessories that can be easily added. Try adding a dry erase board to the wall to keep paper from piling up, file folders to keep school projects organized by subject and stylish storage cubes to keep supplies neatly stored. Also, set the precedent from the moment the house is entered by adding hanging hooks for coats and backpacks and shoe bins in the foyer, laundry room or mud room space.

Tip 2: Create a DIY study space.  The perfect solution for the child who can’t seem buckle down for study time is a quiet and cozy retreat. To keep distractions far away, find a place in the home that is distant from the television, video games or internet. One great option is to go with a lofted bed, which most kids enjoy and is an efficient use of space, to create a study nook underneath. If a desk seems too formal, opt for comfortable bean bag chairs, a book case and mini side table.

Tip 3: It’s time for a kitchen overhaul. With busy schedules underway it’s important to make the most of family time around the dinner table. Spruce up your kitchen to be functional, yet inviting. A chalkboard for weekly menus keeps the family organized and looks stylish and for the tech-savy family a blue-tooth speaker to add music background for a relaxing end to a busy day.
