Online is KeY We are in a different era of home buying. smart shoppers do most of their due diligence online, and why not? Most real estate brokers list their properties across various websites because that is where buyers gather to get the scoop on new listings. Key information like square footage, lot size, number of bedrooms and nearby school districts is all available at

A new shower?

Plan well so you don’t get your feet wet!

Prepare the bathroom before the work starts. To avoid damage to countertops, toilet, and cabinets

Check the drainage and the infrastructure before waterproofing the walls and floor to prevent leakage. Cover exposed partition walls with waterproof panels. Choose tiling that blends with the color and style of the existing décor. Many different elements should be considered when selecting a new shower head: its adjustability (pivoting, tilting, removability); water flow; type of jets (pulsating or therapeutic massage); and pressure adjustment. Take your time and choose a shower door that fits with your budget and décor (plastic, transparent, frosted glass, mirror) and the way it opens (sliding, folding, pivoting).

A good recipe for an organized kitchen Perhaps it’s time to rethink the organization of your kitchen storage areas if you have to waste precious cooking time rooting around in drawers and cupboards for the object you need. When dishes, utensils, pots and pans, small appliances, recipe books, and cleaning products all seem to be in the wrong place, it is practically impossible to work efficiently. It also likely means your kitchen looks cluttered. To get better organized, start by creating compartments inside your kitchen cabinets. The height of adjustable shelves can usually be changed in order to reorganize the contents and maximize space. Alternately, create subdivisions by using plastic or steel baskets, containers, and small shelving units. Install lazy Susans in the corner cabinets, and think about adding pull-out sliding systems so you can reach articles at the back.

Hooks can be used to hang utensils and chopping boards inside lower cupboards. You could also opt for separators which allow serving plates, chopping boards, and lids to be stored vertically. Install storage modules on the inside of cabinet doors for cleaning products and brushes, sliding modules for the garbage and recycling bins, as well as racks for hand and dish towels. Add different sizes and shapes of compartments to drawers and stack two utensil trays on top of each other. Organize the worktop to tidily store everything you want to keep close at hand, such as the bread box, knife block, vases or decorative bowls, and appliances. Supports for foil and plastic wrap rolls, cups and glasses, hooks for oven mitts, and measuring cups could be installed on the undersides of wall mounted cabinets.

Installing a door? ’Nothing to it! Installing a door yourself is a relatively simple operation. With the tools and materials listed here you’ll be fully equipped to get the job done: a door, of course, plus cedar shims, a set square, finishing nails, screws, hammer, level, screwdriver, drill, and retractable blade knife.

and closes without difficulty. Insert cedar shims on the side where the door handle is. Cut off any excess with a retractable blade knife. Install moldings around the door on both sides. Nail them to the frame and wall studs. Fix the strike plate and the handle as well as the door stopper.

The first step is to install the doorframe. Use the set square and level to ensure that it is perfectly straight. Slide a cedar shim under the door to support it and help you align it with the hinge mortises. Align the hinges with the mortises already cut into the door frame and screw them in. After this, the frame and the cedar shims can be fixed to the studs with 2 ½”-spiral finishing nails. Now the door should be screwed into place on the frame. Check to ensure that it is well adjusted

All you need are cedar shims, a set square, finishing nails, screws, hammer, level, screwdriver, drill, and retractable blade knife.

Many different types of doors are available on the market: • Interior hinge or swing door: opens to one side, providing unimpeded passage. • Sliding door: fully opens with a translational motion (ideal for small areas). • Pocket door: disappears completely into the wall, providing extra space and light. • French door: usually of glass from top to bottom, allowing lots of light into the room. • Folding door: made up of several, narrow leafs that fold in on themselves, thus saving space.

If you decide to entrust this work to a contractor, familiarize yourself with the basics of bathroom renovation before meeting with him or her. That way you will know what they are talking about and if their budget estimate makes sense. Find out their hourly rate, availability to finish the job on a schedule, the materials they will require, their previous experience, and any other questions that can help you choose a reliable contractor.

protect them with old, thick towels or cushions or protective coverings. To cut contractor costs, remove the shower’s existing tiling yourself and scrape away all the grouting so that the surface is smooth. Old pipes and shower fixtures can be recycled rather than put in the garbage.

The installation of a new shower is a great deal easier if you are well prepared before staring on the job. If you’re doing the work yourself, make sure your tool kit is fitted out properly: putting in new fixtures requires some tools you might not have, and removing ceramic tiles and putting in new ones is not an easy job. You’ll also have to take care to waterproof everything in order to avoid the problem of leaks.

Color is certainly the central element in interior decorating, but it has to be used properly to create the desired effect. As a general rule, for open areas experts recommend the use of the same dominant color, or another option would be to use a mix of colors of the same tone, which blend together harmoniously.

Buyers, particularly younger ones, are obsessed with back yards. It is where they entertain throughout the springtime and summer. Parents with young children want plenty of room for their little ones to roam. And buyers with pets would much rather have a place for their dogs to exercise than to drive two towns away to the nearest dog park. You can make a major impression on those viewing your home by putting a little extra time into maintaining and enhancing your back yard.

A PlAcE TO rElAx

What’s better than sitting out in your backyard underneath the stars? how about sitting around your new decorative fire pit?

Add a little warmth to your entertaining space by building a pit, which can be both in-ground or above. Add a large grate for cooking hot dogs or hamburgers and you really have a hotspot. Another project that will add value to your back yard is a patio, requiring only a weekend of your time, some decorative pavers, sand and your creative touch. Pavers come in all colors, shapes and textures, allowing you to infuse your personality into your new patio.


If you live in town, installing a composite or treated lumber fence can pay major dividends – both now and when you’re ready to sell. Buyers like their own space, and a fence accomplishes this by blocking off neighbors’ dogs and random walkers-by. People with pets definitely have a fence on their list of must-haves when searching for a new home. You can have one installed by your local home improvement store, a local fencing company, or take on the project yourself. With a little sweat equity and a few hundred dollars, you can have a beautiful fence up in a weekend.

PAGE A7  Friday, January 26, 2018

Each back yard has potential to shine. The hard part is capitalizing on its best features and creating a wonderful getaway, just feet from your back door. If your yard is large, you may have room for more landscaping or decorative touches. A small yard can be enhanced by vibrant grass or tall birdhouses that help extend the space.

e may live inside, but the back yard is where we play. And it’s one of the first parts of your home that prospective buyers will want to see.

SpRIng InTo AcTIon The springtime is traditionally the height of the real estate list-

ing market, with buyers and sellers awakening from the doldrums of another cold winter. According to the national Association of Realtors, most sales take place between April and July. Sellers work hard through the winter months to renovate and remodel their homes to put the best foot forward come spring. Buyers prepare, too, by pinching pennies and growing their savings accounts for the up-front costs of a real estate transaction. And that can be a smart move, as property prices are often at their highest during the spring season and owners are less likely to negotiate early in their listing period. FAll The fall my not be quite as popular in terms of listing and buying homes, but it has its advantages. For sellers, the competition is far less fierce during the fall, allowing them greater market prominence and listing power. Their prospective pool of buyers may be smaller than in the spring, but those who are looking for homes in the fall are usually serious suitors. Whether they are relocating or facing extenuating circumstances that require an untimely move, buyers looking in the fall often have motivation to purchase quickly. Sellers can benefit in the fall from having less competition and more serious buyers. If you find the right agent to list your home with, they’ll give you the best chance to sell your home quickly — and for top dollar — any time of year.

PAGE A9  Friday, January 26, 2018

It’s difficult to identify the right time to jump in. In most parts of the country, spring and summer are obviously the hot seasons for buying and selling. But listing or looking in the fall can have its benefits, too. Before deciding when you should list or buy, Realtors recommend that you conduct thorough market research on your own, develop a hard budget or asking price, and be prepared to negotiate. A well-prepared buyer or seller can be the difference between a home sitting for months or being snatched up in weeks, no matter the season.


or both buyers and sellers, the real estate market can be a confusing one to enter.

About Home Warranties


home warranty can be a security blanket of sorts — and a comfortable one at that. As many forward-thinking homeowners have discovered, a home warranty is a valuable tool in helping overcome early ownership challenges in the face of major mechanical or appliance breakdowns. But it’s not just buyers who benefit from home warranties. They are also designed to protect the seller and the agent in the face of major needed repairs. Experts urge you to do your homework on warranty companies and to consider the addition of an insurance policy in your transaction. A ComforT LEvEL Warranties offer a measure of financial protection if certain appliances or aspects of the home break down during a particular amount of time of new home ownership. They also provide a comfort level to all parties involved in a real estate transaction. Buyers can take solace in the fact that they will be relieved of major, unex-
