Searching for your Western North Carolina dream house can be an exciting—and trying—experience! Admittedly, while there are some parts of the homebuying process that are important and necessary but not exactly “fun”, there are simple and effective tips that can make your house hunting experience easier and, yes, even fun. Here are a few suggestions to help keep your house hunting experience a positive and exciting one.

Get pre-approved by a mortgage lender. This will help in a number of ways: it helps you limit your shopping to the types of homes you can afford, you will be ready to make an offer on the home you like, and sellers will be more inclined to take your offer seriously.

Choose a Good Agent.   Purchasing a home is a considerable investments and it makes sense to to be guided by a professional. Working with the right agent is critical to finding and securing your dream home. You need an agent who knows the local market, knows property and can carefully explain each step in the process so you always know what’s happening.

Keeping your budget in mind, determine what you want and need from your home.  There’s a big difference between needs and wants – create a list of “must haves”, “would likes”, and “definately don’t wants”.  Don’t just think about what you need now, consider what your needs may be a few years from now.  Your agent will help narrow down inventory and find homes that best match your needs.

If at all possible, visit the various neighborhoods you are considering. Plan to visit on weekdays and weekends and at different times of the day.  It matters.  Do you like the neighborhood? Does it have the amenities you want? Good schools? A convenient commute to work? Senior Services? Your new neighborhood will be a part of your daily life you want to be sure that you will be satisfied with not only your new home, but life in your new neighborhood as well.

It’s helpful to bring a camera, especially if you’re looking at a lot of homes. Take photos and notes of the homes you visit – the details of individual homes can begin to blur in the house-hunting process and having something to review when you get back home is a very helpful way to keep the homes you just saw organized.

Sometimes you may have to look at a lot of houses before you find the right one, but knowledge and preparation are the keys to a positive and exciting house hunting experience.

Every Brevard NC homeowner wants a beautiful yard,  however many homeowners are under the belief that yard work can be expensive and time consuming. Whether you’re a homeowner looking to pump up your home’s curb appeal in preparation for a sale, or you’re looking to get the most out of your yard for relaxing and entertaining, here are 5 budget friendly projects to bring your yard up to a “10″, and better still, each can be done over a weekend!

1.Lighting– Adding exterior lighting to your outdoor spaces makes it possible to enjoy more time outside and are a perfect way to create mood and ambiance. Consider going green with solar lights, they are affordable, require no wiring, and are eco-friendly.

2.Lawn– By fertilizing and seeding the lawn you can create lush, durable greenery. Eco-grass seed requires less watering and is over all lower maintenance, apply the seed to the areas needing grass then use a spreader to fertilize the whole yard.

3.Patio– Find an area in the yard to create a small area specifically designed for entertaining and relaxing. Brick or flagstone can help define the space and give you an area suitable for a table, chairs, and grill – what a great spot to spend some relaxing time!

4.Garden– A gardener with a black thumb? Worried about the upkeep required for beautiful plantings? No worries, plant a xeriscaped garden. These gardens are full of plants that require little maintenance and are drought resistant! Consider using such colorful plants as lavender, Russian sage, yarrow, sedum and salvia, all of which thrive in dry conditions.

5. Water– Adding a water feature to your yard provides an attractive focal point as well as a pleasurable background sound element to your outdoor space.  The addition of a simple fountain or small pond will also give birds a reason to visit, adding more sounds and beauty to your yard!
