A Welcome to our New Readers!

Roost Realty LogoWe're thrilled to welcome new readers to ROOST's blog, LiveLoveRoost, this week! There is something here for everyone, so we hope you'll take a look around. We usually post new content two to three times per week, with stories covering DIY home improvement projects, local sustainable living resources, unique community-building efforts, the local real estate market -- and more.

Here are just a few highlights of what you'll find here:

  • In Praise of the Smaller Home: There's nothing wrong with owning a larger home. But it's important to question the assumption that a bigger home is always better. Here are a few reasons smaller-home living might work for you.
  • Too Much Stuff: How one self-professed packrat conquered her overflowing Tupperware cupboard -- and committed to owning less "stuff."
  • A Few Thoughts on Staging: Some people bristle when they hear the word "staging". But we know nicely staged homes are easier to sell. Here are few tips to help you get started.

To stay in the loop, we invite you to receive new blog posts via email by clicking on the "follow" button in the bottom-right corner of your screen, or by "liking" us on Facebook. And we'd love to hear your story suggestions, so if you have an idea or request, please contact us!

We look forward to being your resource for news and views on sustainable living, vintage architecture, cool community happenings, and the local real estate market. Thanks for reading!
