HTH_011213parker2Today is a perfect day to look at houses. The snow is pretty much gone, and it’s going to be a warm 50+ degree weekend. One area of interest is the Walten Woods region of Harborcreek — just a ride out to this private community along the lake is worth the trip. Here’s a link to my cover story about a Howard Hanna listing.  Other links to home stories are listed below.

Good news abounds in real estate this week in House to Home. If you have a house in the $200,000 to $300,000 range, now might be the time to list — the market is begging for more inventory in that range.
The Millcreek home at left listed at $369,900 and sold in a hurry after a feature in my real estate column. Jim McGoey of Pro Realtors listed it, and Karen Euliano of Sue Sutto Realtors sold it. More good news on the homefront in House to Home:

This week’s House to Home focuses on making small spaces seem bigger. As apartments get smaller, we have some great ideas on how to make them more livable right here. Using windowsills as seating and finding a good hideaway bed can make your small space a wonderful home.

In a “before and after” article, one designer shows how removing a wall in an older home converted two smaller spaces into one more workable room that makes entertaining a lot more fun. Check out “Reclaim unused space for living area.”

Our lead article tells you how to easily give your Christmas tree new life as a winter home for the birds. Read more in this great story by Sue Scholz in today’s House to Home. Check out all the home design stories by clicking on the links below:
