Create Visual Space

Home buyers want the most house their money can buy. A large house with a choppy floor plan and small rooms can feel less spacious than a smaller home with an open floor plan. A clean, well-maintained, and spacious home is not only more marketable, but can often command a higher price.

Here are some things to do to visually create more space:

* Position mirrors in the right places to make a room appear larger. Make sure the mirrors reflect what you want to see more of, such as a favorite painting or a lovely window.
* Choose a light color scheme to help open up a room. White, cream, pearl gray, or soft yellow seem more inviting and open because they reflect light.
* Clear out the clutter. Keep decorative objects to a minimum. Porcelain figurines are distracting and can be easily broken. Pick up newspapers and magazines. Put away–or pack away–unnecessary items from countertops in the kitchen and baths. Clutter can make rooms seem smaller than they are.
* Minimize the amount of furniture you have in each room. This doesn’t mean smaller furniture! Just less of it. Sometimes just removing a few pieces will do help make the room appear larger.

Reasons to Buy

No matter what the economy some of the same reasons apply to buy that exist any time. Right or wrong many people count on thier homes for a long term asset that can be leveraged for retirement or future financial needs. Here are some of those reason. 

Reasons Why You Should Stop Renting
1. Rents continue to rise
2. Having no economic security, not knowing how much your rent may go up in the next two to three years.
3. No tax benefits
4. No long term wealth accumulation

I have broken the homebuying process down to four steps.

  • Step One: Determine how much home you can afford. Speaking to a mortgage loan specialist to be pre-qualifed for your home loan is the most important ste! The price range of the homes you look at will depend on this.
  • Step Two:Getting Pre-Approved for a loan to purchase a home.After getting pre-qualified, the most important thing you can do is to go ahead with the loan process and get fully pre-approved before you decide or extend an offer on a home. This will give you advantages when you are in the negotiating process.
