Will The Housing Market Cool Off This Fall?

Today’s hot housing market is one of the peculiar outcrops of the pandemic. Housing supply was already low before Covid-19, but it was further hampered as lockdowns took place and people began looking for new homes, driven by a host of reasons—from the desire to leave populated cities to better home offices or just fear of missing out.

The Federal Reserve’s steps last year to keep the financial markets liquid and to ensure mortgage rates stayed low have continued. But the low mortgage rates pale in comparison to soaring housing prices in the past year.

Lifestyle Tips & Tricks

Prep Your Home for the Season

As the season begins to change, it's time to prep your home for falling leaves, cooler weather, and, eventually, the winter season. Tackling a few fall home maintenance tasks now can help ward off issues later in the season, so you can enjoy everything you love about autumn worry-free.

Here's Why Fall Is the Perfect Time for Some Major Landscaping

We looked to landscape architect Margie Grace of Grace Design Associates and Joe Raboine, director of Belgard Residential Hardscapes, to share emerging landscaping trends and help us prepare our landscapes for a season of hosting, harvesting, and finding solace in the great outdoors.

The Best Places to Travel in October

As much as we love beach lounging in summer and exploring snowy wonderlands in winter, there's something extra special about traveling during the fall. Aside from fewer tourists and lower prices, October brings harvest festivals, Halloween parties, and the best foliage of the year.
