Today’s recommendations focus on the first and often most stressful real estate purchase, the “starter home.” One is a little bit country, the other a little rock and roll, but both are affordable and cute. So which one would you rather move your IKEA sofa and your parents’ coffee table into? Have a peek and let me know. Happy looking.

This brick Cedarcroft cottage is the real estate equivalent of a giant smiley face. It’s so cheerful, it practically giggles. A tidy little yard leads the way to a sunshine yellow interior that dares you to be in a bad mood. And why would you be? Everything is newly renovated, freshly painted and fastidiously clean. Even the less visible elements (air conditioning system, boiler and roof) are shiny and new. All you need to do is crank up Simon and Garfunkle’s “Feelin’ Groovy” and enjoy the summer in your first house. Visualize: Tons of Dwell Studio for Target, it would be perfect in here.
