Floor Plans Made Easy

MagicPlan, is an amazing application that makes creating a floor plan of a house so easy a kid could render professional looking floor plans in minutes!

Magic Plan is the post PC revolution for floor plan creation. If you have ever watched an architect create a floor plan it requires CAD software, a tape measure, hours of time and much more. This is the reason why floor plans are so expensive to have created with a professional.

I am a strong believer in using a professional to make big decisions.  However, have you ever just wanted to know how a couch would fit in your living room or play around with the layout without contacting a professional?  Well now you can find out how that amazing couch you have been eyeing for the past year would fit in your living room with just a few clicks!

Here at TexasDreamProperty.com we use Magic Plan to create floor plans for all of our clients so that they can have a better understanding of the home that they are purchasing. If you would like more information on MagicPlan please contact Michael Carpenter at 512-522-6683.

Why Home Staging Still Matters?

In Austin’s current seller’s market where buyers and investors are snapping up properties sight unseen, staging is still a valuable tool for homeowners and real estate agents.

The value behind staging is through a recent report released by Real Estate Staging Association (RESA), homes sell 70 to 80 percent faster when staged.  Nationally, staged homes are on the market ONLY 29 days versus non-staged properties being on the market an alarming average of 145 days!  Staging a property has an average return on investment (ROI) of 586 percent according to the web site Home Gain! 

With the obvious stats on staging mentioned above it is a no brainer if you have a little extra cash to spare to have your home staged prior to listing with TexasDreamProperty.com. For more information on staging your home or finding a qualified stager please reach out to Michael Carpenter at 512-677-7111.
