Viewing your dream house

Once you have found a property you feel you like, make sure you learn as much as possible about it. Even if it seems perfect at first glance, try to think about it from all angles. Take down extensive notes on both the pros and cons of the property. Even if everything feels perfect try to find some things you don’t like about the house in order to make an objective decision later on.
Finally, don’t be satisfied with only one visit to the house. View the house in the daylight and at night, and even at rush hour, so that you can truly imagine what it would be like to live there.


Maximizing space


Space is always a premium, be it in an office or at home. You can always “buy” space by buying more real estate to add to your property but if the area you already own does not offer you any kind of expansion options, what do you do?
The best way to maximize space, and also the most cost-effective (hey, you won’t need to buy property) is to think of and implement various space-saving solutions. There are many things you can do. But hiring a contractor and an interior designer and/ or architect to help you is the best option because you can tap their expertise.


Certificate of Title

If you aspire on buying real estate property, there are tips that can help you to make sure that the property that you are purchasing is legal and valid.

 

First and foremost, make sure that Transfer Certificate of Title is original. The unproblematic and trouble-free means to make sure or verify if the title to the property you are purchasing is genuine is by getting a “Certified True Copy” of the title from the Register of Deeds. This agency is by and large situated at the city or municipal hall wherever the estate is located. You can inquire the seller of the asset for a copy of the title. Basically, what you need is the title number and the name of the possessor to acquire a certified and accurate duplicate of the title from the Register of Deeds.


Considering the Pros and Cons

If only buying a property is as easy as doing your groceries. Walk down the aisle and take your pick before heading out to the cashier. But it isn’t. You’d need to consider a lot of things, not just the price tag.

This is why it would be a good idea to keep track of every possible house through a list. Jot down the pros and cons of each property. Try your hardest not to be fazed by a particularly charming window seat or a spacious garage. What else is there? What could possibly be wrong with the house?

Keeping track of details like these could eventually save you from buying a space that is more wrong than right for you.


Feng Shui

small_264142639Let’s say for example you and your partner are pad-hunting, and have found a gorgeous apartment. Bravo! You love it for the possibilities all this space offers you, he or she loves it because of the gorgeous view and the fantastic sunsets in store. Both of you are thrilled with the prospect of signing on the dotted line and officially calling this Home Sweet Home – however, what does it say for you luck-wise?

Some people are mindful of the feng shui of a place before they fully decide to buy or move into a place. Feng shui is an ancient Chinese geomancy that is believed to enhance the quality of life via the flow of Qi, or Chi. Qi or Chi is what translates into life forse and luck, and some believers are very attentive to what this says for them. Features of a home such as wooden beams above doors, the position of a bed vis-à-vis a window, or even where you decide to place your aquarium all have an effect in feng shui.

Condo Units

And who could refuse the great amenities that you could enjoy when living in this kind of space. Style, elegance, and comfort are the best description for this estate. Mostly, condo units can be found within the business district of the city. So if you are just residing here, picture out all precious time you have for yourself. Blocks away from your workplace, shopping areas, theme parks and great restaurants. Plus, you could do extra errands without a sweat. Living in grace indeed!


A Space of Your Own

Has the thought of getting your own space, as in buying your own home, crossed your mind? If not, then maybe it’s time that you consider that idea. Living in your very own house does not only give you an investment but it can give you tremendous benefits as well. For one, you don’t have to have put up with nasty landlords impose crazy rules and increase rental fees as often as they want. You also don’t have to live with people whom you can’t stand to share a space with. In short, you can do everything and anything that you want in a space of your own!


Practical dream house

A dream house is a lot like a dream girl: both tend to be permanently perfect and shiny. Unfortunately, it’s very rare to come across either in real life. The prettiest girls have their bad hair days and even the seemingly perfect house can have its glaring defects. The trick is in knowing how to compromise. Know the difference between necessity and petty desires.
