emember when looking for a new home meant tagging along with an agent to see dozens of places before you even saw one that was remotely right for you? Then came the internet and tons of photos. Yes, photographs look amazing, but the actual abode can sometimes feel a bit different than the images once in the actual space. Other times, it’s hard to imagine your own furniture in a room with the current homeowner’s stuff in the space.

Luckily, today’s homebuyers are now able to search for their new abode online with 3D video imaging, ruling out casas that don’t meet their criteria, and imagining homes with nothing in them at all or with furniture rearranged, thanks to new technological advances in the world of real estate. Recently, agents have been able to offer potential buyers even better sneak peeks of homes by providing 3-D tours of their listings. Now, buyers can not only look at photos of the homes but they can feel as if they are virtually inside the homes and are able to scroll up and down to view ceilings, floors, and even closets, all without leaving the comfort of their current home. Want to get an even better look at a home that could be “the one”? Today’s top agents are providing drone video tours of their most luxurious properties, allowing buyers to see the vicinity, specific geographic features, and exterior views of the house and property. This aerial view is the best way to get a feel for just how much land a house sits on and how close neighbors are to your potential crib. One special tool some agents now use to showcase their homes is Matterport, a virtual reality 3D home tour service that allows the viewer to “walk” through the home, with clickable buttons to showcase the home’s unique features (for example, you can click to get specifics on a wine bar or details on the height of the ceiling in the great room). The service also offers a realistic “dollhouse view” of the home so buyers can easily see the homes layout and size and scope of the rooms in relation to one another. For those who really want to feel like they are walking around inside the house, homebuyers can even wear a virtual reality headset to fully immerse themselves in the home tour with Matterport. Who knows, some people may even buy their home today without ever stepping foot in the front door until closing day! Happy house hunting!

ext time you’re looking for something fun to do with your gal or guy pals, consider a sip and paint party. What’s that you ask? We’re sure you’ve seen photos online showing a bunch of happy-looking people holding up colorful canvases of similarlooking oil paintings. These paint parties are a mix between hanging out at a local wine bar with your buds and trying your novice hand at painting in an artist’s studio. Here’s more on what to expect if you decide to give art a go. And why not? You may be the next Georgia O’Keefe! First off, there’s the wine, to help newbie artists relax and channel their inner Picasso (trust us, though it certainly isn’t necessary, it can help if you haven’t touched a paintbrush since second grade). A few sips along the way helps painters chill and go with the flow. Next, there’s the design, usually chosen ahead of time by the party host. These “copy this” artworks are usually fun, bright, trendy, and easy to paint, which is what makes the get together fun and not a disappointment in the end. After all, who wants to struggle creating and end up bringing home an ugly mess? The art supplies are all set up for you at your personal easel, including pre-mixed colors and necessary brush sizes (there’s not

IN GOOD TASTE

Desert Botanical Gardens | Every Saturday Night DBG.org | 480.941.1225 Flashlight tours are sensory adventures through the sights, and mysteries of the desert night. Guests beam their own flashlights along self-paced trails to capture night-blooming plants and animals that chirp, whirr and flutter in the desert after dark from 7-9:30 p.m.

Paint PARTY a lot of guesswork involved here, which helps keep things moving and makes guests feel comfortable giving painting a go in the first place). And, of course, there’s a group of your friends by your side to encourage you along the way, plus a talented teacher who gently guides guests along the stages of painting the canvas. Sure, creativity and doing your own thing is encouraged, but most people have fun just trying to create their own original “copy.” This isn’t fine art, but fun art. A paint and sip party is a great social way to spend time with friends doing something that may be a little outside your comfort zone. For those who are more artistically inclined, many of these studios offer longer classes during which you can learn painting techniques and art theory. But for the most part, the sip and paint party is mostly about entertainment—having fun with friends and bringing home a painting that you actually made and that you are proud of. And what could be more fun that that?

Prosciutto-Wrapped Pear Wedges INGREDIENTS 8 Thin slices prosciutto 1 Bosc pear, cut into 8 wedges 1/4 c Wild baby arugula leaves 1 tbsp Crumbled Gorgonzola cheese Freshly ground black pepper Raw honey for drizzling

DIRECTIONS Lay out slices of prosciutto. Top with pear wedges; drizzle each with about ¼ to ½ teaspoon honey. Top pear wedges with arugula leaves and a few crumbles of cheese. Wrap tightly in prosciutto. Season with pepper. Cook’s Tip: Squeeze lemon juice over pears to prevent browning if making in advance.
