It's common to start thinking about a new house in the New Year. We all do it (in fact, we're doing it right now). But if it's not a practical time to buy (or sell) or you're not in a financial position to make that kind of change, you can still make your house feel like new. Make one big change or a couple of smaller ones to breathe new life into your home. In honor of the new year, we've got 16 ways to go about it, and you can do them for under $1,000.

Sales of single-family homes will rise modestly again in 2016 and median sales prices should be up 3% to 5%, trade groups and researchers say. While rising mortgage rates and a shortage of first-time buyers may temper that outlook some, the coming year should be another seller's market for real estate. Despite an upsurge in construction, home inventories remain low and multiple offers are still common. While a 6-month home supply is considered a balanced housing market, most markets are well below that, some significantly. Moreover, supporting fundamentals are far more solid than about a decade ago in the pre-bust years of 2006-2007.

With that as a backdrop, here are 10 tips for buying and selling real estate in a presumed up-market in 2016.

While it’s usually the big schools that get all of the notice in the various ranking services, High School Football America believes that there’s great level being played at all levels of the game.  That’s why, beginning this year, we’re adding a Medium Schools and Small Schools Top 25 to our National Top 25.  All of our polls are created with our proprietary algorithm.

This year, the #1 Medium School is Eastside Catholic from from Sammamish, Washington.  The Crusaders also finished #23 in our national poll.

This past season, Eastside Catholic won its second straight Washington Class 3A title by overcoming a 28-point second half deficit to beat Bellevue 48-42 in overtime.

Likability is a powerful force to get prospects and your peers to trust you more. Deceit isn’t behind the following tricks to make you more likable, recently featured at Forbes.com, but a few traits to keep in mind that can unconsciously influence others to see you in a new light. Here are a few:

1. Use silence to your advantage.

“When you ask someone a question and they’re slow to respond, don’t feel pressure to move the conversation forward,” Forbes columnist Travis Bradberry notes. “Remaining silent plays to your advantage. Moments of silence make people feel as though they should speak, especially when the ball is in their court.” Silence can be a golden tool in negotiations and when in difficult conversations.

2. Open hands and open
