Throw the perfect block party this summer

Real Estate

07 04 12

There’s no better way to get to know the people in your community than a neighborhood block party. And nothing spells summer fun more than an outdoor get-together, complete with a potluck style meal, music and games.

There’s more to planning a block party than meets the eye. Here are some tips to make sure your shindig is a surefire success: I Planning a block party is not a job for one -- about a month or two in advance, form a small committee of

about four or five people and create task assignments to help share the workload. I Be sure to check with community officials such as the local police department regarding any necessary permits you’ll need and to secure a date for the party.

I Formulate a budget based on itemized expenses, including everything from big things like a moon bounce to little things like balloons and disposable bakeware. I Encourage one-time use containers to make cleanup simple and avoid the confusion of returning dishes afterward. For example, Chinet makes freezer-safe bakeware designed to cook food evenly in the oven or microwave. I Coordinate with neighbors to see who can provide grills, tables, and paper plates. I Get a handle on your potluck by suggesting that households from even-numbered addresses bring side dishes and odd-numbered addresses bring desserts. I Distribute invitations door-to-door in advance of the party; and don’t forget to extend the invitation to neighboring businesses. Some businesses may even be able to provide party supplies.

12 Designing with Carol Real Estate

07 04 12

Beautiful interiors

“Design is one of the most powerful forces in our environment. Through design, lives are changed, attitudes are lifted, and dreams inspired.” From HGTV to Extreme Makeover, Home Edition – there is a design program for everyone. There’s also a plethora of magazines and books out there to catch our interest. Why are we so drawn to these avenues of design? Maybe we are searching for guiding principles or rules of good design. Unfortunately there are no hard and fast “rules” of design. Design is a search for “good” and “better.” But where do we start? That’s easy – we start at the beginning! But, where is the beginning. Often times we pick a chair to decorate around or a painting – and sometimes that will work. But, it’s better if we start with the basics. Think of it this way – when we start the first grade of school we learn our ABCs. Knowing the alphabet makes learning to read and write possible. It’s the same with decorating – if we know the basics we can put the design together. And, the more we use the basics the easier they become. So, what are the basics? Where do we

start? There are four types of Lines that need to be considered when decorating. Horizontal lines are usually calmer and less dynamic than other lines and are usually less formal. Vertical lines are considered bold and active and force the eye upward adding drama and dignity to a space and giving the room a more formal feel. Diagonal lines can be more difficult to use -they are so active they keep the eye in constant motion creating a lack of ease. When used properly, they can add energy and power to a room. Curved lines are perhaps the most whimsical of all lines – playful and less rigid. Use diagonal and curved lines sparingly because they are so active and can easily overpower a room. Rhythm, the heartbeat of an interior – a critical element in any space. There are three types of rhythm. Regular Rhythm is a safe and effective design tool, but used too often can make a room feel static and somewhat boring. Irregular Rhythm is less formal and creates movement adding character and flair to any space. Progressive Rhythm incorporates anticipation and sequence and is not ran-

Shapes and textures play a pivotal role in the atmosphere of this master bedroom. dom making it somewhat harder to use. A good example of progressive rhythm would be a cluster of three candles of the same diameter but of three different heights. The careful use of Scale can have an enormous impact on the feeling of a room. The scale of an element is its size relative to other nearby objects. Shape. Think of shape as two-dimensional: circles, squares, rectangles, ovals and even odd shapes. Shapes can be used alone or combined with others. Form is similar to shape in

Window dresssings add an elegant touch to this formal dining room.

that it adds a third dimension – a square becomes a cube; a circle becomes a cylinder, sphere or cone. Carefully chosen shapes and forms combine to create dynamically balanced settings. Speaking of Balance, design balance can be related to balancing your budget or to balancing the scale of justice – one side counterweighs the other, either symmetrically or asymmetrically. Symmetrically balanced design is a “safe” design, a more comfortable and expected solution. By contrast, asymmetrically balanced design is less formal and offers greater opportunity for individual expression and creativity. Objects are never the same in asymmetrically designed spaces. Take a look at your living room mantel or dining room buffet. Is the design symmetrical or asymmetrical? Then decide if a change would be beneficial. Every object has Mass either dense, lightweight, or anywhere in between. When used properly, mass can unify and ground your space. Texture is sometimes forgotten in the decorating palette, but it is, without question, one of the most important elements in any space. The texture of an object or wall, whether

smooth, rough, stippled, or patterned, adds sensual interest to a room. Be warned, texture can be easily overused. But when used properly, texture is the glue that holds the entire space together. Patterns come in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and textures. Be sure to choose a pattern that reflects the mood you are trying to achieve and that it works with the other elements in the design. Variety is the spice of interiors just as it is the spice of life. By varying pattern, texture, color, scale and rhythm you can add drama and interest to any space. Some variety is important in your design, but too much can ruin a room. Use variety sparingly. I hope this has helped you in evaluating the basic elements of design in your home.

14 Buying a home won’t get much cheaper... Real Estate

07 04 12

Buying a home may never get any cheaper than this. Several housing experts are predicting that this year— 2012—will be the last chance for bargain hunters to cash in on the best deals of the weak housing market. With home prices down 34% nationally since 2006 and mortgage rates at historic lows, homes have never been more affordable—but it won’t stay this way for much longer. Stuart Hoffman, chief economist for PNC Financial Services, said he expects home prices to flatten out by the third quarter and start climbing by next year. A number of factors will help bolster the housing market, he said, including a decline in the number of foreclosures and continued job growth. In addition, homebuyers will

have better access to mortgages as they get their finances in order and improve their credit scores. “This is a strong indicator that we will start seeing home price indexes, like the S & P/Case-Shiller, start to report home price increases this summer,” he said. Mortgage payments are at the lowest level in decades. Put 20% down on a medianpriced ($154,400) existing home, and your payment will come to $616 a month, only 12.1% of the median U. S. family income. In 98 of the top 100 metro areas, it’s now cheaper to buy than rent! “If you have good credit,” says HIS Global Insight economist Patrick Newport, “this is the best time in 40 years to buy.” Want to trade up?...You

may think the buyer of your current home is getting a deal, but you might get an even better one on your next residence. Real estate’s best-kept secret…Prices for bottom-tier properties have improved since 2011, reports Zillow, while top-tier prices keep falling. Want to invest?...To get the best rate (a quarter to a half point higher than for your primary residence), you’ll have to put at least 25% down, according to federal guidelines. Be sure to…Work with a real estate agent who specializes in investment properties! - Virginia A. Williams, ABR,CCIM,CIPS,CRB,CRP, CRS,GRI,LTG,RCC,RRC,SR ES
