Sunday Morning Modern

Atomic Ranch’s House Hunting Tips | Our beloved Atomic Ranch national magazine just recently published an article on how to find a realtor to help you with your mid-century house hunting. Guess what? Asheville was featured, along with, images of one of our most recent sales shown above. Here is a snippet: When buying a mid-century home, it is rare that the home won’t have any problems. Mid-century homes have beautiful architecture and indoor elements, but sometimes with age, certain parts of the house can cause a few issues. “While knowing history and aesthetics are important, the agent should be able to help advise or have resources for helping clients deal with these items effectively and with respect to the architecture,” Troy and Kelly say. To enjoy the full article go here. Cheers!

What is Mid-Century Modern Architecture, Really? We’ve written about it quite frequently, but it is always great to get other perspectives like this HGTV article by Dinah Eng. We see the term Mid-Century Modern misused frequently in our industry so we welcome opportunities to refresh the subject. I know that I learn from repetition. Regardless, please enjoy and have a great Monday. Cheers!
