How to Turn Your House into a Home

Over time, most homeowners tend to feel that their house does not offer them the coziness and warmth that they expected. Although, their house seemed cozy and vibrant a few years ago, it doesn't appear to follow the latest home décor trends and innovation. Flavors and preferences of a family also change with years which bring in the need to introduce a décor that reflects your personality and style through the home. So, here are some interesting ways that you may adopt:

1. Lighting can create a great impact in the house. You may use modern, stylish lamps with varying types of lights to boost the mood of a room. If you don’t want to spend on buying new lampshades, then, a great way is to rearrange the already available shades in distinct rooms as they are fruitful in altering the overall décor of a house.

2. Another simple yet effective way to change the ambiance of your house is repainting the walls. Painting old walls with bright colors and welcoming colors can add great zeal and exquisiteness to a room. This way, you do not even have to discard the old furniture pieces. You can use every old thing in your house and style it differently to give your home a complete makeover.

3. Playing with the ceiling is a unique way to alter the décor of your home and give it a cozy and friendly feeling. You can paint the ceiling with distinct colors to give each room a distinct appearance. An exclusive interior decoration trend that has been recently introduced and preferred by most of the numbers is to add personalized paintings on the walls and that too, on a different wall than before. It would deliver an appealing look. You can even get your name written in the painting to create an artwork that can be cherished for life.

4. Display shelves for books and vintage items are an exclusive way to add liveliness and convenience to your home décor. You can use partitioned shelves or take professional assistance to get newly designed shelves that can add more space to the home and at the same time enhance the interiors. It is also an excellent way to showcase your personal collections to your friends or other guests.

5. For adding an illuminating effect to your house, you may use floor rugs; it serves as a great idea. You need to select a rug that complements your surrounding furniture and objects. Rugs also pull down the air pollutants and hence add a more positive character to the overall interiors of a house.

You can plan for a theme based home décor that can introduce charismatic, bold, or serene appearance to your house. Also, you can layer up your sitting space with colorful cushions that can add more charm to any space, be it the living room, kids room, or bedroom.

Try these simple tips as they are effective in delivering results and can surely transform your house into a beautiful home.

5 Things You Should Definitely Know About Luxury Homes

This definitely is an exciting time for home-buyers who are looking for high-end homes. However, the whole process of luxury home buying requires some homework at your end, if you are interested in buying a dream home and not just a big house.

Let’s take a look at top 5 things you should definitely know about luxury homes before committing to anything and making a purchase:

1) Do not dismiss a house just by looking at photos: One can truly appreciate the real value of a home by giving a visit personally. Making a perception based on pictures may not be always true.

2) Be Patient: To get the best value for your money, all you need to do is be patient. Remember, the pool of buyers you are competing against is very small. Less is the competition; the more are the chances to find an incredible home with a great deal.

3) Know your priorities: It's common for luxury homes to include top of the line amenities such as:
  • Swimming pool
  • Intelligent home appliances
  • Top of the line security
  • Gym
  • Incredible location and views
  • Great backyards and entertaining features 
Making a clear list of amenities that are priorities for you will help you find an estate that you will love! It’s impossible to say how a perfect luxury property would look like. It all depends on your needs, taste and lifestyle. So do not let yourself become totally influenced by trends.

4) Know your neighborhood: Location is the most important factor while searching for a home and definitely an important one when you plan to spend a large amount of money on it. What amenities you want in your neighborhood like a golf course, waterfront, heart of city etc. will give you an understanding of area trends and future plans thus giving you a clear view of what location suits best for buying a luxury home.

5) Look for a local Realtor: Hiring a realtor who has experience with high priced real estate and good understanding of the neighborhood you're interested in specifically will help you immensely. They will help you through the entire luxury home buying process and provide you with the most recent trends. They can even help you find problems with the house you may not have discovered otherwise. Since they are seeing homes all the time, they will have a better understanding of what a good deal looks like. Thus, if you’re interested in buying a luxury home, rely on an agent who knows all the hidden treasures in the area that you may be interested in.

10 Mistakes To Avoid During Home Inspection

Home inspection is one of the most important steps while purchasing any real estate. It ensures that the home is safe to live in and worth your money. It’s important to inspect your property for any hidden problems or structural defects so that it doesn’t turn into a money pit.

Here’s a list of some of the common home inspection mistakes one should avoid:

1) Choosing the wrong inspector: While hiring a home inspector, keep in mind that you are choosing a professional who will do a full physical check of your investment. Choose someone who is trustworthy and competent. Most buyers generally choose on the basis of who charges the lowest. It’s better to look for options and check the credentials, licensing and affiliations of the inspector.

2) Not getting a property inspected: It’s important to gather complete information on the builder, its property and value of the property. Just because a home has passed all legal formalities doesn’t mean it is problem free. Make sure to get everything (inside and outside) inspected. Do not skip the inspection just because the property looks good or is newly constructed. Builders or contractors may sometimes overlook things. For your assurance, ensure everything has been inspected before you purchase.

3) Not participating or being present during the inspection: It is okay to let the inspector do his job but it is also important to meet him regularly, discuss about your checklist, and visit him at the property to check firsthand if the issues discovered are big or small so as to avoid unnecessary spending later on.

4) Ignoring the inspector’s recommendations: Sometimes, issues found are not taken seriously due to the cost factor. These issues may also get ignored during negotiations. As a buyer, it’s important to consider all issues and take a follow up on items discovered during the inspection before investing. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

5) Not using home inspection results as a negotiating tool: A good inspector will always guide you on what can be replaced. Try to consider such points while negotiating repairs and price reduction from the seller. Home inspection is not just a step in home-buying process; you may use the inspection results to your advantage and negotiate a better deal.

6) Ignoring the Exterior Problems: Most of the home inspectors only consider inside of a home missing on problems beyond the interiors. This may leave you tackling with exterior problems like fences, rooftops etc. Repairing these elements at a later stage will cost a lot.

7) Not making a checklist: Home inspectors usually don’t inspect pipelines, tanks, sewerage systems. Add such items to your checklist while buying a home. If your inspector is unwilling to inspect these elements, it’s better to look for another inspector.

8) Relying on Real Estate Agents for Referrals: Real estate agents often provide referrals for home inspectors so as to help clients. But relying on real estate agents for recommendations may not be the best bet. These home inspectors usually ignore faults at home to return a favor to the agent. It’s good to do research and select your agents wisely.

9) Not doing enough research: Rushing to a decision may prove to be harmful at times whether it is while buying a home or getting it fixed. Do your research thoroughly to avoid any home inspection mistakes.

10) Signing the contract before the inspection: A home buyer can exercise the right to have a property inspection at any stage during the sales process. There is no need to wait till a contract has been signed. Remember, an offer can be negotiated as per the outcome of an inspection report.

It is important and essential to complete your research, make wise decisions and take adequate measures to find a competent home inspector and avoid unnecessary chaos and expenditures while buying a home.
