How you can take action: Direct clients to experts who know how to build and remodel houses to withstand the weather and keep energy costs down. Also, know how and where products and materials are made, since more buyers are asking, says Amanda Mason, senior design director at Chicago-based Belgravia Group. You can increase your knowledge by obtaining the National Association of REALTORS® Green Designation or attending a green-building conference. Why its happening: Color swings keep rooms fresh, but what may appeal often depends on how trend-focused the locale is, along with the age and style of the home. According to Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams, “Grays are now in the midst of a warming trend.” In Chicago, real estate pro Jennifer Ames, with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, says, “Its back to more white and off-whites.” Her clients are seeking a more neutral, calm background. In Boise, Idaho, beige appeals to the broadest range of buyers, but millennials moving downtown favor a statement wall of bright turquoise or magenta, says real estate salesperson Gehrke.
Ceiling lights have changed a great deal in recent years; even housings for recessed cans reflect trends with different trim colors, materials, and diameters. Zuber likes placing them strategically around a ceiling rather than peppering a line of cans in the more common shotgun approach. Some also suggest eschewing the expected fixture at the center of a room, particularly in dining and master bedrooms, which gives greater flexibility when arranging furniture, says Amber Shay, national director of design studios for Meritage Homes, a Scottsdale, Ariz., builder of single-family homes.
