“House Party” is realtor.com’s official podcast about the overlapping worlds of real estate, design, and pop culture. Click the player above to hear our takes on this week’s hot topics.
While honesty is always the best policy, there are certain topics that are just off-limits. In real estate, for example, your agent will be an invaluable source of knowledge about many aspects of a home (like what types of cabinets are popular now, or the difference between septic and sewer systems), but there are a few topics they will be hesitant—or even refuse—to address. What are they and why are agents likely to be tight-lipped about them? Natalie, Rachel, and Erik get into it on this week’s episode of “House Party.”
We also talk about Tuscan-style home decor—a trend that peaked in popularity during the late ’90s/early ’00s but feels rather stale today. In the spirit of freshening up your decor (and working with what you have), we offer some surefire design tips for bringing your dated home into this decade.
And this wouldn’t be a podcast about real estate if we didn’t talk about some seriously sweet homes. Specifically, we discuss the 2018 HGTV Dream Home (a beautiful modern manse overlooking the Puget Sound) that has found a buyer, a rustic “hobbit house” for sale in Wisconsin, and the multimillion-dollar pads of this week’s real estate winner and loser. You’ll have to listen to find out who they are!
