Prequalification is a mortgage lender’s calculation of how much you could borrow based on information you supplied at the time of the inquiry. A prequalification does not mean you will get the loan, it simply is a guide based on what you provided. They are usually f...

How to Pick Interior Wall Colors That Will Dazzle Any Prospect       Paint has remodeling power when you use it to emphasize a room’s best features or play down the flaws. “Paint is a powerful tool that can enhance the architectural character and intent of space,” says Minneapolis architect Petra Schwartze of TEA2 Architects. “As you choose your paint, think about what the experience in the room should be.” More Schwartze advice: Always sample paint colors on a few walls.
