Martha Stewart gets into the real estate game

Martha Stewart gets into the real estate game

We’ve watched her shows, tried her recipes and dream on her designer bed sheets. But soon, rather than bringing Martha Stewart’s brand into our home, we may be able to move into her brand. Marquee Brands, which owns the Martha Stewart empire, announced last week that it was beginning preliminary research into developing residential communities inspired by the domestic diva.

While details about the locations, styles or costs have been released, the announcement stated that the master planned communities will include single-family homes, townhomes and assisted living facilities.

There was no indication if the homes would come furnished with her signature style décor or line of paint colors.

Today, conforming no-point 30-year fixed mortgage rates are averaging 3.875 percent and 15-year rates are near 3.375 percent.
