How a Real Estate Agent Can Help You Find Your Dream Home

7 Home Improvements That Can Lower Your Home’s Value

Home improvements are a great way to add value to your home. When done correctly, a small investment can produce large returns. However, there are some upgrades that can make it harder to sell or even lower your home’s value. Avoid these common home improvement mistakes.

Over-Improving One Area

It doesn’t matter if your kitchen is worthy of a professional chef but your bedroom still boasts shag carpet and you have leaky plumbing in the bathroom. Instead of going all out on one or two rooms, spread out the improvements in smaller portions throughout the home.

Textured Walls or Colored Trim

It may seem that colored trim can be easily remedied with a fresh coat of paint. But in reality, it’s not that simple. Between taping off walls, priming to cover color and a final coat of paint, it’s a tedious task at best. Textured walls are just as much of a pain.

Musicians and the Idols that Inspire Them

Today’s musicians are a reflection of their idols. The greatest artists of all time were inspired by masters of the craft that came before them. 

Elvis Presley

The undisputed King of Rock and Roll, Elvis is considered as one of the most influential artists of all time. He is a cultural icon who found his inspiration from a lot of different music genres including blues, rock, and gospel. He looked up to and praised B.B. King and Big Mama Thornton. Being raised in Memphis likely attributed to his fascination with Delta blues music as well. 

Elvis had a hand in encouraging the musical careers of many other artists. It was his ability to blend R&B, blues, gospel and rock and roll that left many artists admiring his work. He was a musical influence to Paul McCartney who would one day be the face of music himself as part of The Beatles. Elvis also inspired Elton John whose musical ability would become iconic.
