You’ve probably seen some expertly produced clips being shared on our social media pages recently. Maybe you’re wondering exactly who The American Dream is, what they’re about and how The Lippincott Team got involved with The American Dream. Read on… we’re answering those questions and more in this blog!
The American Dream TV is a nationally aired television show currently streaming on Amazon, Roku, Apple TV, and YouTube. There are over 30 million users on those platforms on a daily basis, and The American Dream TV show itself nets between 8-10 million views per month on those platforms!
Out of 40,000+ licensed REALTORs in the greater Houston area, The American Dream chose The Lippincott Team to fill one of ten available slots, specifically representing the Cypress area. We were eager to take advantage of this opportunity and graciously became a Power Player representing the greater Houston area for The American Dream. This opportunity not only provides our agency exposure, but more importantly, it provides exposure for our listings too!
The partnership between American Dream TV and The Lippincott Team provides our agency a couple of really unique opportunities that no other agency in Cypress can provide. Through American Dream, we have the ability to showcase the amazing people, communities, and events in Houston on a national scale, like our most recent clip filmed at The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. For our clients, this partnership provides gained exposure and faster sales and closings for our listings. Can you imagine seeing YOUR home listed on a television show that airs nationally? When you list your home with The Lippincott Team, that can be your reality!
We are eager to grow our networking model through this new partnership and look forward to great things to come in 2019 with The American Dream. If you’d like more information about listing with us, call our office at 713-494-1818 today!
The New Year is here! When it comes to creating the perfect living space, the design elements you choose can make or break your home’s entire aesthetic. So… what trends will dominate home decorating in 2019? The Lippincott Team predicts what you should keep on your radar in the New Year.
In 2018, we saw an uptick in casual, farmhouse-chic trends that pay homage to Chip and Joanna Gaines and their remodeling style on HGTV’s hit show, “Fixer Upper”. This year, we’re predicting that trend continues with a more sophisticated twist. Elegant comfort can be achieved with warm wall colors and antique wooden furniture with a tarnished look.
Along with the physical coziness that this home décor style achieves, people are also seeking emotional comfort in their home too! Our surroundings tend to feel more welcoming and “at home” when we’re among warm neutrals and comfy favorites, like furniture with big, soft, rounded arms. Cozy beds with upholstered headboards and footboards will be covered in comfortable textiles, making bedtime your new favorite time of day!
We’re also predicting antiques continue to make a comeback and grow increasingly popular in 2019. Handcrafted authenticity and pieces with history behind them will be more common this year. Your home will have personality and tell a story by adding a few unique pieces from your favorite local secondhand or antique shop.
2019 is going to have some fantastic home design trends! Will any of these make their way into your home this year? Let the Lippincott Team know what you’re planning to update and stay engaged with us on social media! Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter by following the links below. We look forward to connecting with you this year!
Happy New Year! As we welcome 2019, most of us begin to think about goals we’d like to achieve in the new year. While we can’t help you cut back on fast food or make it to the gym more often, we can most definitely help you make your next move!
If you’re in the market to buy this year, The Lippincott Team proudly boasts some of the hottest properties on the market in the most desired subdivisions and neighborhoods in Northwest Houston! You can browse through our current listings here. Our team of friendly, experienced agents are ready to show you the property of your dreams and we’re looking forward to helping you find your dream home in 2019.
If you’re looking to sell your home in the new year, there’s no time like the present! January is an excellent time to list your property because people looking for a new home now tend to fall into the ‘serious buyer’ category. Typically, we tend to find that more homes are sold with less viewings during this time. While spring is traditionally a very popular time to list your home, the market is more congested. Let the Lippincott Team list your property now and we’ll market your home to stand out from the crowd!
We wish you good health, prosperity, and best wishes sticking with those New Year resolutions! If moving tops that list for you in 2019, The Lippincott Team would be delighted to help you. Store our number in your phone and give us a call when you’re ready! 713-494-8818
Make Sure You’re Taking These Simple Steps for a Safer Home
We’ve all seen the news about wildfires raging in other parts of the country, destroying thousands of homes and businesses in their paths. While we’re not in any immediate danger of a wildfire here in Houston, seeing these events serve as a good reminder about taking steps to fireproof your home as best as possible, especially during the holidays when fire-related instances tend to grow.
1. Install Smoke Alarms
This is critical role in fireproofing your home can help ensure your family can get out if your home is on fire. While most homes already have smoke alarms installed, properly maintaining them is up to you. Make sure you’re testing your smoke alarms often and changing the batteries routinely.
2. Keep Fire Extinguishers Close By
Strategically placed fire extinguishers around your home can help stop a fire before it gets out of hand. We suggest storing one in your kitchen area, near your fireplace, outdoor grill, or where flammables are kept in the garage. Don’t forget to check expiration dates on them; you won’t use them often – maybe never – before they expire and need to be replaced or refilled.
3. Winter Holiday Fire Safety
We decorate our homes inside and out with beautiful Christmas lights, often without checking to make sure no damage occurred while they were stored away. Be sure to inspect holiday lights each year before you put them up, and throw away light strands with pinched or frayed wires. If you have a live tree, make sure you water it daily, and avoid placing it too close to a heat source, like your fireplace or mantle with lit candles.
While these are just a few ways to get started fireproofing your home, they are all simple steps that you can do today. They won’t make you completely invulnerable to fire dangers, but you’ll be better prepared to protect your home, your loved ones and your property this holiday season. The Lippincott Team happily provides references for electricians and more to our clients!
