Modern Or Contemporary: What’s The Difference?

Image result for modern or contemporary

Your friends may describe a home as “modern” or “contemporary,” but what do they really mean? According to REALTOR® Magazine, here’s how these two styles differ.

Modern: This style of house focuses on straight lines and limited details. Honesty and simplicity are characteristics of modern architecture. Here are some other traits:
• rectangular exteriors with flat roofs
• open floor plans
• changes in elevation (such as split levels)
• monochromatic color palettes
• limited decorations

Contemporary: This style of house may combine traits from several design styles, ranging from traditional to modern. Contemporary architecture is constantly evolving, characterized by the following:
• curves or sweeping lines
• asymmetrical shapes
• mixed materials – wood, stone and brick
• a combination of indoor-outdoor spaces
• large windows and skylights

Location is key!!

Location is still the hottest attribute a home can have! It is the first thing a buyer looks for the majority of the time! My listing on 3236 NE 78th could not have better location in the Portland area! It is in the highly desired Roseway neighborhood and is also extremely close to the schools, restaurants, transportation, just a couple minutes to the freeway, shopping and much more!! Take a look at this property on my website!

4 Tips to Cut Utility Costs

Utilities are some of the expenses you just can’t avoid. They’re necessary, but they don’t have to break the bank. Here are four ways to save on your energy and water bills.

1. Wash your clothes on cold. According to a leading washer and dryer manufacturer LG Electronics, 90 percent of energy used during a wash cycle comes from heating the water.

2. Unplug electronics you aren’t using. Most electronic devices constantly pull a small amount of electricity, which can add up. Unplug your desktop and laptop computers, coffeemaker, cordless phones, and other electronic gadgets when they aren’t in use.

3. Maintain your appliances. Vacuum condenser coils on your refrigerator quarterly. Remove debris from inside and around your air conditioning unit annually. Change your air filters every three months, or more often in a home with shedding pets.

4. Shut the faucet off. Limit how long you’re running water out of your faucets. Turning the water off while you brush your teeth can save up to 200 gallons of water a month, according to the EPA’s WaterSense program. Water your lawn and garden in the cool of the evening when the excess water is less susceptible to evaporation, using less water to keep your grass green and healthy.
