Many of our properties sell within 14 days, and often for well over asking price. Unlike other firms, we do not represent both seller and buyer on the same property. This means you get true representation, which allows us to promote YOUR best interests without trying to balance our obligation between parties. We carefully screen all potential buyers, so clients do not have to worry about unqualified buyers, and inconvenient or unannounced showings. Our clients are able to pick their own closing and moving dates. That’s why at Owners Only Real Estate you get to Choose Your Move! Owners Only Real Estate offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, allowing you to cancel the contract at any time if you are not thrilled with our service.

Cut the stress out of holiday travel planning (StatePoint) The holiday travel season is just around the corner, and experts are expecting it to be a busy and expensive one, with airline ticket prices for the winter holidays increasing nearly 30% since last year. While travel experts recommend you start organizing trips at least three months in advance, do not fret if you’re a last-minute planner. There are still a few ways to maximize your travel plans and save a few dollars while you’re at it. Hit the Highway: For those planning on taking a road trip this season, make sure your vehicle is up to date on all registrations and maintenance so you don’t experience any road bumps. If you’re planning a road trip and you’re a T-Mobile customer, you get a year of AAA membership for free with all Magenta plans. Plus, T-Mobile custom-

ers also save $0.10 per gallon of gas from Shell via the T-Mobile Tuesdays App. Opt for Low Traffic Travel Days: When booking airline travel, CheapAir.com recommends avoiding Thursdays-Sundays. Instead, book airline travel on Tuesdays or Wednesdays if possible, as those are the slowest travel days of the week. According to ChearAir.com, traveling on actual holidays like Thanksgiving Day or Black Friday can save you $75-$90 in flight ticket prices. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are also expecting lower airfare prices this year. Check the Cancellation Rules: Make sure you can cancel your hotel, airline, or car rental reservations if you need to, and understand what additional fees you may be subject to if you do need to adjust your trip. Plans can change at the

drop of a hat, especially in the postCOVID world. Use Those Travel Perks: Many credit card companies offer benefits like points and frequent flier miles, which you can redeem on flights, hotels and more. You can save up to 40% on select hotels and car rentals by booking through T-MobileTravel.com. Most come with free, flexible cancellations. Stay Connected: The internet can be hit or miss when traveling abroad, so make sure you’re well-versed in the details of your data plan before logging on. Pack Smarter: Make sure all your tech items are within arm’s reach during your trip. Pack charging cables, headphones and tablets to keep children entertained on trips. Packing a portable charger in your carry-on is a game-changer when all the outlets at the airport are in use. Volume 33 | Issue 12 | WNC Homes & Real Estate | 19

Look for these new home styles coming in 2023 (StatePoint) With travel returning to normal for some, there’s a renewed interest in seeing the world but you don’t have to go far to bring the beautiful details of faraway destinations into your home’s spaces. Celebrity interior designer Taniya Nayak has identified the top design trends for 2023, all with an eye to how travel can inspire home décor.

1. Redrock Renewal: Breathe fresh air and renewed energy into your space with “Redrock Renewal,” which incorporates both nature and spirit through earthy tones paired with bold influences of turquoise, clay and olive. Embrace a clean, light slate layered with simple textures to create a room that is calm, joyful, serene and spiritual. This trend can make a big impact in any space through small details like textured pillows, cozy blankets and clay vases. 2. Bohemian Bazaar: The “Bohemian Bazaar” style is about creating an environ-

ment that emboldens everyone in it to live a vibrant, authentic life.

To achieve this look, add a pop of color where it’s least expected, like mixing chairs in different shades of fabric around the table or adding bright, bold hues to an otherwise small, dark hallway. Inspired by the people, culture and food of destinations like Morocco, India and Africa, this trend merges the details of handcrafted goods with soulful experiences by encouraging the mixing of patterns and colors. 3. Nordic Nature: “Nordic Nature” encourages a pure, clean and fresh space by bringing elements of the outdoors into your home. The palette is reflective of a Scandinavian aesthetic, consisting of concrete, wood and crisp white walls to create a space with natural, modern and organic appeal. Look for unique opportunities to make nature-inspired but daring statements that balance the rustic feel with an uncluttered

and contemporary vibe. Apply a subtle concrete layer to your walls for added interest, movement and texture. Before you begin, tape the edges with Nayak’s preferred painter’s tape, FrogTape, to keep lines sharp and neat. 4. Midtown Modern: It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and excitement of a fast-paced, on-the-go lifestyle, but the “Midtown Modern” movement is about turning your place into a space to pause and savor every moment of each day. Implement saturated hues like black or navy to create an urban, contemporary vibe. Elevate the look with plush fabrics like velvet, wool and satin. Complete the room by adding a special sparkle, with statement pieces that have bright, brass or metal finishes. “If your hardware is losing its luster, remove it and spray paint it with a new finish for a fresh new look,” says Nayak.
