Check the zoning Before you get too caught up in your imagined remodel, it’s best to investigate the applicable zoning laws. Some municipalities strictly dictate what you can and can’t do to a home. Historic neighborhoods in particular may require homeowners to maintain certain features or styles. Building an addition could also be subject to restrictions. Check your municipality’s website or call their office to find out what rules apply to the property you want buy.

Should you buy a fixer-upper? Buying a rundown house and renovating it is one way to get a home of your own at a great price. But before you take the leap, there are a few things you need to look at.

Too much to say about this Custom Ranch Home... Location is amazing. Privacy is incredible. Great floor plan and lots of storage. Even has its own basketball court. Additional acreage is available. Yard is beautifully landscaped.

renovAtion costs Even if you’re prepared to do the repair work yourself, there’ll be expenses for equipment and materials. Those less handy will also need to budget for manpower. Expenses can add up quickly, and a true bargain isn’t always easy to come by. Evaluate costs carefully to determine the true price tag of a home that needs repairs.

17056307 Desloge • $220,500

Commercial property just off US 67 interstate , Desloge! Perfect highway visibility with frontage on Spencer Road, that runs parallel to Hwy. 67 North. Close to the new Desloge city water tower.

Two types of renovation mortgages to help purchase and fix a new home Want to buy a fixer-upper but don’t have the funds to cover both a down payment and renovation work? Hang in there! One of these loan products could help you make your homeownership dreams a reality. FHA 203(k) loAns Federal Housing Administration (FHA) 203(k) loans are a good option for those with limited cash for a down payment but who still wish to fix up their newly purchased home. Rather than either getting a second mortgage, opening a line of credit or pursuing other potentially costly borrowing options, buyers can roll their repair costs right into their mortgage. Only a 3.5% down payment is required to get approved for this type of mortgage, making it a feasible financing option for many. Even buyers with a low credit score are frequently approved for this type of loan product. However, the program is only available to those who intend to become owner-occupants. The full amount that can be borrowed for the home and repairs will depend on county guidelines where the property is located. In addition, the particular types of renovations that can be made are restricted. Firstly, there’s a price cap of $35,000. Secondly, the renos must increase the value of the home and cannot involve luxury items such as pools or tennis courts. Thirdly, upon completion of the repairs, buyers must be able to prove that everything was done up to code. Finally, all repairs must be completed within six months of the home’s purchase. Homestyle loAns These loans offer many of the same benefits mentioned above but

require a 5% minimum down payment. To get the best loan rates, however, borrowers should have a credit score above 740 and be willing to make a 10% down payment. This will ensure buyers pay the lowest possible insurance premium, which works out to much less than the mortgage insurance premiums attached to FHA loans. Beyond their lower interest rates, HomeStyle renovation loans have a number of other advantages. For starters, the oversight required for the project is less stringent, as only two inspections are mandatory: one before the work starts and another once it’s complete. The luxury renovations that are disallowed with FHA loans are permitted with HomeStyle loans. In addition, these loans are open to both owner-occupants and investors. WHicH one sHould you cHoose? The right renovation mortgage for any particular buyer will depend on their unique financial situation. Both options should be investigated to determine which program carries the most benefits for the buyers involved.

tHe type oF repAirs needed Cosmetic repairs are easy to tackle and typically inexpensive, but two types of necessary renovations should give house hunters serious pause: structural and foundational. Issues in these two areas are costly and difficult (sometimes impossible) to overcome. For everything else (electrical, plumbing, roofing, etc.), you’ll need to weigh the costs and amount of work involved to make a decision.

WHAt you’re Willing to sAcriFice In addition to the time and money that renovations demand, purchasing a home in need of repairs can mean living in less-than-ideal conditions — noise, dust, only one bathroom, etc. — both prior to and during the work. In addition, living in a construction zone can place a huge amount of strain on relationships. Carefully consider what you are and aren’t willing to live with, even it would only be for the short term.

The Road to Your New Home.

Discover seven qualities of cork flooring Used to build durable bedroom, living room, dining room, basement and kitchen floors, cork is gaining popularity throughout the home thanks to its numerous advantages over other flooring options. Here are seven characteristics of cork to help inspire your next renovation! 1. Durable Cork is known for its incredible durability. This material is hard to damage, and its porous structure provides excellent shock resistance. Furthermore, cork is flameproof, waterproof, hypoallergenic, antibacterial, antifungal and antistatic—not bad, right? 2. ComForTable Cork is naturally supple and stretchy. Its cushioned surface is easy on the feet and joints, making it an ideal choice for kitchens and children’s playrooms alike.

It doesn’t absorb heat during the stifling summer months and won’t get as cold as hardwood or ceramic when temperatures start to drop. 5. easy To Clean as long as it’s protected by a good quality varnish, cork flooring requires very little maintenance. To keep it looking good as new for as long as possible, all you need to do is regularly vacuum and wash the surface with a damp mop. 6. eCo-FrIenDly Cork is sourced from renewable forests and harvested in a way that is safe for

Would you like a machine that you can program with your smartphone to have a steaming cup ready when you wake up? What about being able to adjust the brewing strength according to your preference? And will you need to keep the same pot of coffee hot for extended lengths of time? Think about it!

1. Budget. Determine the amount of money that you’re willing to spend on your new appliance. Consider energy consumption, the price of the machine, extra costs (e.g. coffee filters) and, of course, the coffee itself. To help guide your decision, base your budget on the price of a single cup of joe. Ideally, a coffee brewed at home should cost less than a cup of the same quality brew from a coffee shop.

2. Brand. Invest in a reputable brand of coffee maker, and purchase it from a well-established appliance store. In the event of a problem, the repair, reimbursement or exchange process will be a lot simpler and quicker!

Is coffee an integral part of your morning routine? Then it’s in your best interest to invest in a quality coffee maker! Here are six things to keep in mind when it comes to finding the best model for your needs:

4. Maintenance. Replacing water filters and cleaning the different parts of your machine (compartments, reservoirs, etc.) can be tedious and time consuming. Certain models are very easy to maintain, whereas others require a little more effort — like coffee makers with a glossy finish that makes fingerprints and smudges stand out. Do your research before settling on a model. 5. Space. To avoid having to return a coffee maker that was too big for your kitchen, take note of the exact measurements of the space where you intend to keep it before you head to the store. 6. Style. Coffee makers — especially high-end models — are available in different designs and finishes to suit every homeowner’s needs and style preferences. Large or compact, shiny or matte, bright red or classic black, modern or retro — make your choice according to your kitchen’s existing décor for best results.

Protect your furniture with tempered glass Does the idea of your beautiful wood dining table getting scratched or stained give you nightmares? Not to worry! Here are a few ways to keep your precious piece of furniture in pristine condition: 1. Eliminate coffee, red wine, beets, strawberries, curry and anything else that tends to stain from your diet. 2. Lay down several thick

waterproof tablecloths before each meal. 3. Prohibit your guests from using forks and knives (only bare hands and spoons are tolerated). 4. Protect the table’s surface with an elegant, custom-made sheet of tempered glass, and enjoy life to the fullest! All jokes aside, the fourth option is obviously the most efficient way to protect the surface of your furniture (tables, desks, dressers, etc.) from scratches, dents, stains and streaks. A trAnspArent shield Tempered glass is manufactured in a way that makes it nearly impossible to chip, crack or shatter. Therefore, carefully polished made-tomeasure tempered glass panels add a sophisticated and modern touch to furniture while protecting it from harm.

Why hire a kitchen designer? Whether you’d like to create a functional and elegant kitchen from the ground up or renovate your existing one so that it better meets your current needs, enlist the help of a kitchen designer. This renovation expert has more than one trick up his or her sleeve! Kitchen designers are creative and detail-oriented professionals with extensive knowledge of various industries and trades, including architecture, woodworking, plumbing, carpentry, electricity, masonry and, of course, interior design. Thanks to the expertise of these talented individuals, you’re guaranteed a beautiful and functional kitchen tailored to your specific needs and style preferences. Why not take advantage?
