From the Desk of Exit Realty Founder, Steve Morris... 

'Change this moment and you change your destiny. Do not waste time grieving over past mistakes. The future is your present thinking made manifest. Take up a new residence in your mind. This means nourish a new decision and sustain it with confidence. As you begin with faith and confidence, the end result will be successful in all ways. The beginning and the ending are one.'

'Nothing is forever. Everything changes. The past is finished. The future is not yet alive. Nothing matters but the moment. Start living in the present. Prepare wisely for the future and leave the past alone. Think good thoughts and good results will follow. Revise all your thinking. The moment you begin to think constructively and wisely, an immediate and automatic reaction transpires in your subconscious. The past mistakes and errors are wiped out when you reaarange your psychological furniture in this manner. Form a new mind-set, forget the past and blame no one. You mold and fashion your own destiny with your deliberate intentions. Stay positive, constructive, and creative in all of it!'

    The Top Ten Professional Home Staging Tips Every Homeowner Should Know Create the illusion of space by rearranging the furniture. Try different combinations or remove and store pieces that make it feel crowded. Arrange the furniture in living areas into intimate groupings that suggest entertaining and ideal conversational settings. Consider rental furniture, especially when the pieces you have don't match, are badly worn, or are in any state of disrepair. Add decorative pillows and slipcovers in warm neutral tones to hide flaws and make pieces blend. Eliminate clutter. Store or get rid of appliances, gadgets, newspapers, mail or anything that takes up space or distracts attention. De-personalize your home so buyers can imagine living in it. Store pictures, awards, trophies, collectibles, and other personal keepsakes. Paint walls in inviting neutral colors to cover flaws and freshen rooms. Add small luxurious touches to bathrooms and bedrooms. Think plush towels, fresh flowers, high-end bed linens, and pretty bath soaps. Eliminate unpleasant odors and smells that can kill a sale. Fragrant candles, plug-ins, and home sprays can help, but nothing smells better than clean. Plants add an aura of softness and warmth to any room. Large or small, real or silk-they're a favorite of professional stagers.

    El Paso retail market recovers www.elpasoinc.com The recovery of El Paso’s retail market has spurred a building boom that’s expected to add just over 1-million-square-feet of retail space to the local economy this year.

    FIVE TIPS FOR DO-IT-YOURSELF WORK AROUND THE HOME Make a list: Spend some time taking stock of the kinds of maintenance and improvement projects you'd like to begin. A well-considered list will help you to set reachable goals. Assess your skills: Make sure that you carefully consider which projects you are fully capable of completing. For example, unless you have sufficient experience with electrical, plumbing or construction work, you should probably leave those tasks to the professionals. Establish priorities: Which projects are most important to you? Which projects will be the most costly? Which is more important: timeliness, quality or cost? Before beginning any do-it-yourself project, it is always wise to determine specific goals and priorities so that you are fully prepared when it comes time to begin. Create a budget: For each project that you want to complete, make certain that you have a firm budget in place. Allowing for unexpected circumstances (such as errors or the need for additional materials) in your budget will keep you from overspending. One step at a time: When it's time to begin, remember to pace yourself! Rome wasn't built in a day, and your new garden terrace will take time as well. Complete one task at a time, and soon you'll feel the wonderful sense of satisfaction and accomplishment that doing-it-yourself can bring!
