Hello Amanda,

What a great question!

I assume you have some kind of landing on the 2nd floor, so if you do, then wooden stairs and landing as a whole are just fine - it's like a different area of the house...with some decor to tie in both the wood and the stone - anything made of stone or stone imitation (picture with a stone imitation frame), Roman ruins painting, stone vase (similar to travertine's stone)...

Your carpeting upstairs should be in the same tone as the downstairs travertine.
It'll also help if you'd have some wood on travertine on the 1st floor (a tree, similar wood tone picture frames, some decorative item made of wood). You can even use the leftover materials from the stairway project to make something with your own hands, if you'd like...

As long as the theme/style is readable in your home - you'll have additional value without any issues.
I have heard from many buyers that they'd rather not have carpeting on the stairs. Most buyers don't mind the carpet on the 2nd floor though (except those that have dust mites' allergy).

Best of luck with your project!

It is best to check with your local lender, who can also work on getting you pre-approved.

I believe you have to report at least a 1/3 of the price of the house your trying to buy. Contact any lender of your choice to get the hard facts.

Believe me, I know the feeling!

Going paperless is a very new wave...one that many important entities have not yet completely embraced. With this said, it probably would be wise to keep all of the original paperwork. You never know what the future will bring but it certainly helps to be prepared.

None that I'm aware of! Best to consult with an attorney when there are contractual disputes that can't be resolved between brokers.

You will be better off picking 1 Realtor to work with and get real and available listings.

Yes, commissions are between the Buyer and the Realtor. Realtors don't work for free.
