Spring Is In The Air

Spring is in the air and the housing market is expected to set a few trends in 2017 as Bill Rawlings talks about in his article in the Milton Herald. Although the interest rates are expected to rise slightly it’s still a great time to invest in real estate compared to the past. With mortgage rates increasing 4.15%in mid-December 2016 this allows mortgage credit to be more widely available due to lending standards being loosened. In turn this will allow first-time homebuyers lower fees. The wish for a new home is creating a positive impact for new construction, which is expected to rise throughout 2017. Foreign buyers, due to their outstanding budgets have become one of the strongest buying groups. The National Association of Realtors reported buyers purchased over $102 billion in residential real estate in the United States. Peachtree Residential Properties has over 20 new developments to chose from for your housing needs.  Visit the Peachtree Residential website to see all the move-in ready homes for this spring.  Peachtree has several neighborhoods in the Milton and Alpharetta area.  Canton Street Commons in downtown Alpharetta is coming soon as well!  Peachtree Residential will be celebrating 29 years of building new homes in Atlanta and Charlotte in May.

Top 4 home design trends for 2017

ForWeb-12The new year is around the corner and Atlanta Agent published the top 4 home design trends for 2017 and commented on the 3 going out the door.   You can fix up your current home or buy a new Peachtree Residential home which has so many benefits!  Peachtree Residential has several inventory homes ready for you this holiday season or you can build your dream home! Check out our new homes here: www.PeachtreeResidential.com

They said: “Every year brings with it new design trends that capture the hearts and minds of prospective homebuyers, and thanks to Zillow Digs, we have a good idea of what trends to look for in the 2017 housing market”.

Top 4 trends for next year:

1. Velvet – Already a hot trend, Zillow Digs expects velvet to make a “big splash” in 2017, especially in throw pillows, upholstered couches and curtains.

2. Jewel Colors – The saturated colors of emerald green and sapphire blue bring “life and richness” to residences, and Zillow Digs predicts they will appear in anything from artwork to furniture.

3. Marble Surfaces – Countertops, flooring and tabletops will be natural spots for marble, particularly in white/light gray color schemes; platters, vases and other household items could also incorporate marble.

4. Built-in Bars – Finally, bar carts were a hot trend in 2016, and Zillow Digs thinks the more permanent built-in bar will be popular in 2017. Whether it be a built-in shelf for cocktails or a seating area, bars could become focal points within the home.

“Interior design in 2017 will be about bringing warmth and comfort into the home,” she said. “Homeowners will start to shy away from overly industrial designs that feel stiff or cold. Instead, they will incorporate plush fabrics like velvet and rich jewel tones into their home to make it feel more approachable and welcoming.”

3 trends to leave behind this year:

1. Industrial Furniture – Exposed brick will remain en vogue, but the uncomfortable and impractical furniture that defined the “industrial” trend will be retired with rich leather and plush fabrics – aka, comfortable furniture!

2. Cool Grays – A nice neutral color, gray has been a go-to for homeowners and designers, but experts anticipate more experimentation in 2017 with brighter, more individualized colors.

3. Quote Art – Calling it “overdone,” Zillow Digs expects quote art to be “forgotten quickly” next year, and to be replaced with artwork that captures the colors and textures of nature.
