New iPad Reminds Me of Great Apps for the Home

Photo of iPad

The announcement of the new iPad this week got me to thinking about some really cool apps I’ve seen over the last several months.  Here are the five best, most of which are free. (Even the ones that aren’t free are so worth it that you might want to try them out anyway.)

Who would have thought that you could control your TV with your iPad? And match colors you see in the world to exact hues with Sherwin-Williams? And carry a comprehensive wood grain library with you everywhere you go? Oh, and did I mention: An app to measure your rooms and a different one to help you decorate them? 

ColorSnap: Capture real world colors and match them to Sherwin-Williams paint colors—for free.

New Home for Sale in Forks Township!

Puppies help to sell houses

We’ve just listed a really great home in Forks Township that’s going to be a deal for anyone looking for a great buy in this area. This home was well cared for and has really nice-sized rooms including four bedrooms, a first floor office and a family room with a wood-burning fireplace. When you enter the home there’s gleaming hardwood floors guiding you toward the open kitchen (with breakfast area) and family room; the living room and office are on each side as you walk back. This is a great first floor layout! Did I mention there’s a finished basement rec room with wet bar and a seperate craft room? Perfect for the kids or for that ‘man-cave’! Wait, Deb’s telling me it would also make a great ‘lady lair’. I’m not sure there is such a thing, but we may have just coined a new term!

Okay, here’s the really cool part. The yard is awesome with a nice paver patio leading up to the (ta-da!) in-ground pool! I don’t know who we’re going to sell this house to yet, but I want an invite to the first cookout. Spring and summer can’t be that far away! Maybe this is the best part…this house is priced at $310,000!! It’s a great deal and we’d love to get more information for you, including more pictures. Give us a call at 484-893-1234 or e-mail us at homes@debandjoe.com.
