To Rent Or Buy? That Is The Question

No matter what stage of life you’ve come to, much of your future decisions hinge upon whether or not you’re renting your home or if you’ve decided to purchase it. So, what are the pros and cons to consider when making the decision to rent or buy a home? Here’s a short guide to help you decide which is best for you. Consider Your Income While buying a home is usually a better long-term investment, sometimes it isn’t a viable option in everyone’s standing financial situation. It also doesn’t just come down to whether a rent payment is cheaper than a mortgage payment, either. There are many costs to consider when buying a home, like property taxes, closing costs, home maintenance, insurance, homeowner fees and utilities. Sometimes, for the short term, renting is just more affordable. If you’re in a position where you have enough money to buy a home and solid enough credit (more on that, later) to take out the loans you may need, consider buying more seriously. By increasing the equity of the home you buy, you may be able to sell it for more, later, or even rent it out to tenants when you’re ready to move […]

6 Easy Ways To Organize Your Home

Everything should have its place, and be in its place. Without this basic tenant, dream homes can very quickly become nightmares full of clutter and confused spaces. Here are six tips on how to organize your home – and keep it that way. Examine Where Clutter Accumulates We all have spots in our home that accumulate clutter. When you set out to organize your home, make sure to pay special attention to these areas. The most cluttered parts of the home (kitchen counters, coffee tables, etc.) are usually that way because, you and those living with you don’t know where to put your things. Determine Existing Storage In The Home Catalog all the places you can put things away. Find all the drawers, closets, cabinets, shelves and nooks in your home and determine whether or not they’re currently being used effectively. Purge what you don’t need from these spaces to make room for things you do. Designate “Put-Away” Places If you’re following these steps, your home probably looks less cluttered already. Once you know what storage spaces are in your home and you’ve made room in them, designate their use to yourself and those living with you. This way, everything in […]

Why You Should Hire A Real Estate Agent

The real estate market of today is more accessible to individuals than ever. Even though you can search for properties on many websites, including our own, you’re likely to get more out of your buying or selling experience by hiring a real estate agent. Here’s why: Getting Great Deals Real estate is one of the few markets where you’re expected to haggle a price. Working through a transaction that is fair to both the buyer and the seller can be difficult without a liaison. Real estate agents are the professionals to consult when deciding and negotiating a bid for a home. Instead of blindly hoping that you can haggle a million-dollar house down to your budget of $850,000, or paying (or listing) much more than market value for a property, speak to an agent about where to set your price points. Talking Through Terminology From escape clauses to contingencies, there are a lot of real estate terms you’re going to have to navigate in order to buy the right home for you. While you could search for the definitions of all these terms yourself, you could also ask for an expert to help you make sense of contracts and listings. Google […]

Clean Out If you’ve been living in one place for any period of time, you can easily become overwhelmed by the amount of stuff you’ve accumulated during your stay there.

Enlist Moving Help You should make sure you’ll have help for your move well in advance of moving day.
