Have you ever wondered why we celebrate Independence Day with Fireworks? If so, you can thank the British — and John Adams. On July 2, 1776, two days before the Declaration of Independence was signed, he wrote this letter to his wife:
“This day will be most memorable in the history of America,” he predicted. “I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival… It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade… bonfires and illuminations [fireworks]… from one end of this content to the other, from this time forward forevermore.”
On America’s first Fourth of July celebration in 1777, fireworks were one color: orange.

Floor plans aren’t just important because buyers want them. They are also a tool . that is an essential part of your real estate marketing efforts for sellers and their agents. Here’s how:
1. Visual communication: Floor plans give homeowners the information they are looking for about the home’s structure, layout, and other “bones.” It allows them to see the size and location of these rooms, in a way that photos simply cannot express.
