The Home Buying Process

The Home Buying Process

Buying a home might seem like a huge undertaking. It’s not something you do every day, so you might not know what to expect. Most buyers don’t and that's okay, that's why you have us! Learning the home buying process can take the mystery out of buying a new home and allow you to approach each step with confidence.

1. Identify your real estate agent and mortgage broker; these professionals will be your guides though the process. Make sure you use a local lender! This ensures constant communication, knowledge of the market, and a smooth and timely process
2. Get a loan pre-approval; learn your budget and terms
3. Go house-hunting
4. Negotiate the price and terms
5. Enter the contract period and place a deposit
6. Perform home inspections
7. Receive the appraisal and obtain final loan approval
8. Review all information and remove contingencies if satisfied
9. Close on the new home

As you can see, buying a home is really a series of small decisions. As long as you continue to find the information you receive acceptable, you will move through the process towards the close. If not…then you will cancel and start over with another property. Buying a home is exciting and understanding the process can help you avoid unnecessary stress. If you have more questions, or would like to start the home buying process for yourself, give us a call!

5 Most Popular Paint Colors in 2018

5 Most Popular Paint Colors in 2018

The easiest way to modernize a room or home is with paint; color can provide a subtle backdrop or steal the show. From soft neutrals to vivid brights, here are the 5 most exciting new colors for 2018.

1. Charcoals – 
While the soft neutral grays and taupe of the past few years still enjoys popularity, today’s grays are becoming bolder. Lush earthy grays and even darker charcoal are popping up in designs for 2018.

2. Blues –
Always a popular color for paint, modern blues include soft elements of gray and brown, adding dimension. 

3. Sage –
Another color which incorporates gray tones of contemporary style is sage. Far from the old avocado of the 70s, sage is a delicate neutral which serves as a great backdrop for today’s home. 

4. Brights –
The accent wall is back in style. Vibrant red, rich purple and mustard yellow are just a few of the newest shades showing up in model homes. Carefully added as accent walls or nooks, these colors add energy and interest to rooms. 

5. Blush –
This is not your grandmother’s pink. Blush paint tones are delicate blends of pinks, grays and taupe to accentuate the natural light of the room. 

Every year, home designers embrace new colors intended to update the feel of the home; a simple way to update your home, over the weekend.

How to Design an Amazing Outdoor Space

The warmer months are coming, and if your outdoor space is not as inviting as you might like, it might be time to make some changes. Designing an outdoor space that you’ll look forward to spending time in doesn’t necessarily mean breaking the bank. The essential elements for a beautiful outdoor area are the same at any price point. 

Define the Living Area

Regardless of the size of your space, define the living area through the use of patios, decks and/or furniture.

Landscape

Use landscaping and pots to add color and texture to your space. Use seasonal plants for color as well as larger evergreens and trees to add contrast and year-round foliage. 

Water Features

Nothing is more relaxing than the sound of water. From extravagant water falls to simple table-top fountains, water features are a must for every outdoor space. 

Fire

Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits are extremely popular. With a wide variety of pre-fabricated options, every outdoor area can include a warm, inviting flame. Enjoy your outdoor space during the colder months with a fire feature.

The ultimate outdoor experience is one of the best features of the modern home. By incorporating a few simple elements to your outdoor space, you can create an inviting area that you and your guests will enjoy.
