“Where is it written that houses must be beige? Any dun colored house would look better if painted pineapple, cream, ochre or even a smart sage.” Frances Mayes
One challenge suggested to me was to view open houses without any intention to buy. I went to Rio Rancho today and looked at several very nice houses from small (1,700 square foot) “starter” homes to large (5,000 square foot) homes with in-law suites and all of the bells and whistles. It was fun to drive around the different neighborhoods and see the model homes. I have less than zero desire to buy a house, but it sure was fun looking. I really like the “smart houses” that allow security, temperature and lighting control from a cell phone or ipad. I toured 6 different homes in 4 different communities. This was very interactive and I had fun but it has been a long day.
