Clayton & Clayton Realtors Real Estate Blog

 

Holidays are the perfect excuse to indulge in the flavors of the season, and Easter is particularly fun because it ushers in a whole new springtime flavor palate. After you've polished off your plate of Easter appetizers, sides, and mains, enjoy a sampling of delicious cupcakes, flavored with the light, zesty, and fruity tastes of spring. And don't worry, chocolate is always in season.

Hydrangea Carrot Cupcakes

Sophisticated, flirty, and bright, this is not your average cupcake, making it all the more fitting for a special holiday celebration. The frosting decorations are inspired by hydrangeas (a flower we are more than ready for come spring) and the carrot cake base (a nod to the Easter Bunny) is perfect for the season.

As you watched the snow pile up this winter, your mind was longing for summer and your dreams were filled with visions of the Jersey Shore.

But if you were waiting until now to book a house for a week-long getaway you might be surprised at how few are left. Long Beach Island rentals, for example, were about 92% depleted as of mid-February, months earlier than the inventory typically hits that point.

National Association of Realtors

2020 will go down in history for a pandemic that changed the world. No one would ever have imagined last year that we would stay home for social distancing in order to help save lives. Specifically, one in three adults substituted some or all of their typical in-person work for telework compared to 1 in 20 adults that worked remotely before the pandemic. With teleworking at record high levels, people also decide to move for various reasons. Some of them seek out bigger houses with bigger yards for their kids to play in and office space for them to work. Others seek more affordable homes in less dense places away from large city centers since they can telework.

While teleworking may continue long after the pandemic, it is obvious that far fewer

Christmas Movies - Bay Head

It’s a Wonderful Life

Whichever version you choose, Frank Capra’s classic is an exercise in depicting “the grass is always greener” proverb. Although, should you prefer the black-and-white original, “the grass is always grayer” might be more appropriate. A seminal holiday classic, it stars James Stewart as a man who gets a glimpse at what life would look like without him.

A Christmas Story

If Ralphie Parker didn’t rattle off his desire for an “official Red Ryder, carbine action, 200-shot, range model air rifle, with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time,” did Christmas even happen? It’s become an unofficial rule—thanks in part to 24-hour airings on cable networks—that every year, we all watch the Bob Clark tale about
