tionally neglects a client. Clients should feel free to call their Realtor® and inquire about the market or their particular situation. Open communication will alleviate misunderstandings that lead to derailment of relationships, hurt feelings and disappointment. Talk to me, I'm your Real-

My Mother hung a large, framed poster of Wizard of Oz's Wicked Witch, Margaret Hamilton, green face and in full regalia, near the back door of our family home. ''Talk to me, I'm your Mother" it read. The clientrealtor relationship requires a level of communication that transcends the usual business context. However much Realtors may anticipate clients' desires, an open communication is essential to a successful rapport and a happy outcome. Let your Realtor® know how you like to communicate. Never check your emails? Let your agent know that. Don't want to receive phone calls during office hours? Make sure that's understood at the beginning of the relationship. Is it imperative that you know if a home that meets your parameters comes on the market? Let your realtor know you'd like a text message. If you've instructed them to only send or call when a specific type of property comes on the market, don't get mad because you don't hear from them. Open communication works both ways. While busy, no Realtor inten-

tor®. In the challenging local real estate market, featuring demanding Buyers and a surplus of home choices, it's important to be represented by a capable, experienced local Realtor® who understands the market and is a skilled negotiator. Pinehurst So Pines Area Association of Realtors has well qualified and highly trained Realtor members. Understanding the wide range of skills Realtors possess, interviewing agents to learn about individual experience, expertise and results, and hiring a local realtor is the best advantage to buying and selling real estate in Moore County.

Assess Your Home’s Efficiency with an Energy Audit

As the year begins and winter sets in, you may be wondering how to save money on your energy bills this year. Conducting a do-ityourself home energy audit is a fast, relatively simple way to assess how much energy your home consumes and determine what you can do to make your home more energy efficient. A home energy audit will show you where your home is losing energy, how efficient your heating and cooling systems are, and ways to conserve electricity. All it takes is a thorough inspection of the

areas listed here and keeping a checklist of the problems you found. Air leaks. Stopping or minimizing drafts can save 5 to 30 percent of your annual energy costs. Some places to inspect where air commonly seeps from homes include gaps around: baseboards, wall and ceiling junctures, electrical outlets, switch plates, window frames, weather stripping, fireplace dampers, attic doors, window-mounted air conditioners and foundation seals. On your home’s exte-

rior, look at the areas where two different building materials meet, such as corners and areas where siding or brick come together with chimneys or the foundation. If you can rattle windows or see daylight around door or window frames, you likely are losing air.

Once you’ve identified the leaks, seal them with caulk, weather stripping or the same material as the original seal. Replacing windows with new, highperformance ones will improve your home’s energy efficiency and get you a break on your taxes. An inexpensive alternative is to attach plastic sheets around your windows. Insulation. In older homes especially, the amount of insulation in the ceiling and walls may be insufficient for

current standards. See if your attic door is insulated and closes tightly. Openings around pipes, ductwork and chimneys should be sealed. Look for a vapor barrier — tarpaper or a plastic sheet — under the attic insulation. To check your walls, make a small hole in a closet or other out-of-the-way place and probe into the wall with a long stick or screwdriver. The area should be completely filled with an insulating material. Fill the gaps in any openings with expanding foam. Flexible caulk should be used to seal any electrical boxes in the ceiling. If your home lacks a vapor barrier, consider painting interior ceil-

ings with vapor barrier paint. This reduces the amount of water vapor that can pass through the ceiling and reduce your insulation’s effectiveness. Heating and Cooling Equipment. Inspect your heating and cooling equipment. See if ducts and pipes that are located in unheated spaces and your water heater and hot water pipes are insulated. Dirt streaks around your ductwork, especially near the seams, are evidence of leaks. Have your equipment checked and cleaned by a professional annually. If you have a forced-air furnace, replace your filters as soon as they are dirty. Even if they aren’t, replace them

every 30 to 60 days. Consider replacing units that are more than 15 years old with a new energy-efficient one. Lighting. Look at the bulbs in your home and determine if a lowerwatt bulb would work just as well for your needs. If you have an area where lights are on for extended periods of time, a compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) can save up to 75 percent of the lighting energy of an incandescent bulb. A home audit is a great way to find out your home’s energy deficiencies and make simple improvements that will save you time and money in the long run.

Find inspiration for your home in 2013 with the latest design trends

(BPT) - We're all looking forward to a fresh start at the beginning of the new year: Whether it's an updated fitness regime, pursuing new hobbies or getting organized, there are a slew of resolutions to try. In 2013, why not make a few changes to not only yourself, but also your home? By incorporating cutting-edge design trends, you'll add style and color that's perfect to kick-start the year. Patterns that pack a punch "No one wants a house that lacks personality," says HGTV designer and television personality Taniya Nayak. "The easiest way to infuse your style - while being ontrend - is with an impactful pattern." According to Nayak, there are a few prints to be on the lookout for in 2013: * Chevron: a bold, dramatic, V-shaped pattern * Geometrics: graphic, colorful shapes, delivering a vintage-modern look and feel * Ombre: subtle color gradation of similar shades that's extremely versatile * Ikat: tribal, swirls

and diamonds reminiscent of tie-dye * Moroccan: culturally-inspired, timeless and exotic motifs "These powerful patterns can be easily achieved with a fresh coat of paint and a premium painter's tape, like FrogTape MultiSurface and Delicate Surface," adds Nayak. "Treated with PaintBlock Technology, FrogTape can be used to create these new, intricate patterns for a haute interior just in time for the new year. And best of all, FrogTape will help deliver sharp lines, making your handiwork look like that of a professional." When using bold patterns, it's best to find the right pairing of both the color and the print to not overwhelm your space. If you're looking to use bright colors, incorporate the patterns onto one accent wall or window treatments. If you're using neutral hues, try using a pattern on a larger scale, around the entire room or even a piece of furniture. "You don't want the elements of a space to fight each other," advises Nayak. "Considering the color, scale

and intensity of any pattern in relationship to the rest of your decor will leave you with a finished space that is perfect for 2013 and beyond." Mixing up materials "The key to updating your home with the latest trends is finding a balance," says Nayak. "It's all about making it personal and adding elements that fit your lifestyle and design personality, without breaking the bank." One great way to make a big impact on a small budget is to mix materials, creating a blend of polished and raw in a room with modern and industrial elements. "The rustic look will be extremely popular in homes in 2013, as it's elegant and comfortable," adds Nayak. "It provides a feeling of richness and warmth, while still being comfortable to actually live in the space." A great material for achieving the industrial and modern look is reclaimed wood. From frames, to furniture, this aged, repurposed wood can bring richness and a dose of style to any space. Mixing materials can

also mean utilizing different finishes throughout a room. In the kitchen, using contrasting materials makes your space look personalized. Try a mix of wood and painted finishes for a more layered and collected feel. By resisting the urge to perfectly match every piece, you'll have a space that looks current and works nicely together. Look for the unexpected "Just because a product is made for a specific purpose, doesn't mean you can't reimagine how it could be used," says Nayak. "For example, hanging materials on the wall that are typically used as flooring can be

breathtaking. Wood planks or concrete panels, featured vertically and not just on the ground, add richness and texture." Another great tip to accomplishing this trend is to look at construction materials in new ways. Molding and paneling can add architectural detail well beyond crown molding and baseboards. Installing framing on a wall and painting it with complementary paint colors can change the look and feel of any room. "Unique treatments instantly increase the texture, depth and visual appeal, without spending a lot of time or money," says Nayak.

"And the greatest feature is that these updates aren't permanent, meaning you can continue to change your space as your style and home design trends - evolve." Finishing touches "The key to incorporating any trend is to make sure it accurately represents your style," adds Nayak. "The finishing touches are the final way to infuse personality into your updated space." Whether it's utilizing accents like pillows, throws and frames in your favorite colors, or a rug that reminds you of a beloved piece of clothing, your home will truly come to life when it depicts who you are in its designs.
