Flawed home design mistakes that can leave housing projects in ruins

K

ampala. A well planned home design serves the purpose of your ideal home. That is why it is important to avoid mistakes when designing a home. The most common mistakes are. Poor orientation Not orientating living spaces to the north is the biggest mistake most people make when designing their home. There is nothing worse than living in a home that will always be hot all day and night. Ideally, if you can have all rooms facing the north, you will be able to have perfect sun for every room in the house. It is preferable to locate the kitchen to the north or north/east so that you can enjoy that beautiful morning sun while sipping a cup of coffee. All bedrooms should be protected from western afternoon sun as much as possible. Buffer these areas with the laundry, store rooms, the garage or a heavily insulated

wall and the main bedroom is preferable on the north/east.As for window over-hangs/ shading, 900mm is the optimal shading depth over windows to the north on home sites with excellent sun penetration. Ensure that you minimise window and door opening sizes on any west facing walls as much as possible.

vegetation. Also, call your local council and ask as many questions as you can. Always ask, “Is there anything else I should know or is there anyone else I should talk to?” If you don’t ask quite often you won’t get all the information you need for a well informed decision.

Insufficient research Many people don’t research enough before they purchase their property. Site constraints will greatly affect the design program of a home and it is important to purchase well to avoid headaches with the plan program and budget blowouts. Remember these few points before buying your property. The site slope - the flatter the site, the more economical it will be to build. Avoid geotechnical nightmares by purchasing sites that are steep or rocky, have clay substrates, noticeable fill or surrounded by lots of

Too open plan An open plan is not the “be all and end all” It can often cause privacy and acoustical problems difficult to reverse. The modern trend for living spaces is to actually design houses so that there is a good compromise between the large open space and the intimate cozy spaces. Large open internal spaces, combined with flat walls and hard floors, increase the internal sound created inside and outside the home. The noise can be reduced by the use of soft fabrics on lounges, extra cushions and


Market Insights

large rugs. All these absorb small amounts of noise. Also, plan to have standard height ceilings 2700 to 3000mm so as to reduce noise. Design the open plan area with a few more walls than you had planned. Install more absorbent flooring such as modern rubber or carpet and apply soft furnishings to windows – curtains and blinds as they absorb more noise. The more folded the curtain, the better absorption quality it will have. Family inconsideration It is important to analyse the way you and your family live and ensure that it’s reflected in the design of the home. Getting this right at the start means you will avoid renovations later to cater for your family needs. For instance, if you have a partner and three children, the following would need to be expressed in the design program. Family/play room - to be located next to kitchen, which has doors out onto a sunny and safe outdoor play area. Lounge area - close to the kitchen but can be acoustically cut-off from noisy areas such as the kitchen and family room. En-suite in main bedroom - private from main area of bedroom - not to open onto main area of bedroom Inappropriate exterior finishes Once the final moments of construction are

coming to completion, it is easy to rush the final finishes. Take your time, a rushed or forced decision can make or ruin the visual appeal of your home and possibly future resale. Undertake some essential research to ensure that you are able to make a well-informed choice about how your house will fit into the landscape. Pick external building claddings that last long. Clay bricks will only last long if they are of good quality and used appropriately. Drive through your neighbourhood and see what products fit into the local area. Talk to people who are building and tell them about your project. It’s amazing what kind of leads you can get by just talking to anyone! Large spaces Another sin is making spaces too big in the wrong areas. People usually overcompensate in space in the wrong areas. When professionals are costing new homes, they generally describe spaces in per square metre costs. So if you are on a budget, only make it big where you really need to. Reduce the size of your home by including multi-functional areas without reducing the spacious quality you’re looking for. Reduce hall areas but don’t reduce the width to less than 1000mm (one metre).

Ask yourself, “Can I deal with a laundry in the bathroom instead of a separate laundry room?” Plan your furniture to fit into a space well - windows that go to the floor do not work well with furniture planning. Substandard construction techniques Not using standard construction techniques and materials will ruin the work. Using the standard type of construction will keep the costs of your building down. Square set or shadow line corners are lovely but they are more expensive than cornices. Detailed lighting bulk heads look great but they will also cost a bundle. Use trusses in roof construction over rafters - rafters cost more and are more expensive to finish. Only design large spans where you need to so as to reduce the requirement for engineer’s details - an extra cost. The trick of designing a well functioning home can be difficult for the lay architect and there will be many people during the construction process that will influence the final built product. You need to keep these influences in check and remain focused and vigilant about keeping your original design ideas in your plan. DF Designing and building a house can be an unrelenting juggling act. But if you can at least plan to avoid the seven most common design mistakes, hopefully, it will result in a well functioning and cost effect house that will sit well in the local landscape for many years to come.

TIPS FOR THE PROSPECTIVE LANDLORD

nvesting in rental real estate looks like a great idea on paper. You just buy a place in a nice area, find tenants and let the cash roll in. However, there are some matters you have to consider before buying a property and putting a “for rent” ad in the newspaper. Here we provide a rundown of the pros and cons of owning rental property and give you a few tips on how to turn a profit as a landlord. Advantages of Rental Real Estate The advantages of rental real estate are quite substantial. One that is not listed below is the fact that when you own rental real estate, you own a tangible asset. You can paint it when you’re happy with it and throw rocks at it when you’re not. Shares of Enron, by contrast, are much harder to hit with a stone. Many people who feel uncomfortable investing in financial instruments have no qualms about investing in real estate. This is a psychological distinction, as a bad stock and a bad rental property are equally capable of losing money, forcing you to sell for a loss. That said, here are the advantages that show up on paper: Current Income - This refers to the rent money that is left over after the mortgage and related expenses have been paid. Current income is basically monthly cash that you did not have to work for - your property produces it for you. Appreciation - This is the increase in value that properties generally experience as time passes. Appreciation is not guaranteed. However, if you own a property in a stable area (cities), the property will likely increase in value over the years. Even properties in

22 The DarProperty MAR - APR 2013

sparsely populated and less desirable areas may appreciate due to general inflation. Leverage - Rental properties can be purchased with borrowed funds. This means that you can purchase a rental property by putting down only a percentage of the total value. Essentially, you can control the whole property and the equity it holds while only paying a fraction of its total cost. Also, the property you purchase secures the debt rather than your other assets. You may lose the rental property, but you shouldn’t lose your own home. Tax Advantages - Your rental income may be tax free if you do not receive net cash flow after expenses are deducted. This means that your mortgage is being paid down and you own more of the total value of the property (rather than just controlling it), but you do not pay taxes on the money that is doing this for you. In addition to this, you can also pull out tax-free money by refinancing your loan if the property appreciates and the interest rates have fallen. Lastly, you may be able to avoid paying taxes on the sale of a rental property if you sell it and reinvest the money in another property (called switching or taxfree exchange). Disadvantages of Rental Real Estate For every upside, there is a downside, and rental real estate is no different. Rental real estate may expose you to the following: Liability - What happens if a stair breaks under your tenant’s feet? With the increase in frivolous lawsuits and the unquantifiable nature of “emotional distress”, liability can be a scary thing. Providing someone with shelter in return for money puts you and the tenant in a relationship where both parties bear responsibility. You have to be certain that

the property you are renting out meets all government codes. Unexpected Expenses - What do you do when you pull up the basement carpet and find a crack that opens onto the abyss? It is impossible to prepare for every expense related to owning rental property, so there are bound to be some unexpected ones. Things such as boilers, plumbing and fixtures often need to be replaced and are not prohibitively expensive. However, faulty wiring, bad foundations, compromised roofing and the like can be very expensive to repair. If you can’t find a way to pay for repairs, you will be left without a tenant and with the grim prospect of selling the property at a significant discount. Also, as building codes evolve over time, lead paint, asbestos, cedar roofing tiles and other materials that passed inspection in the past may be reevaluated to your disadvantage. Bad Tenants - No one wants to have to use a collection agency to collect overdue rent. Unfortunately, almost every landlord has a story that involves police cars escorting his or her tenant out of the property - erasing all hopes of getting the five months’ worth of overdue rent. Bad tenants can also increase your unexpected expenses and even hit you with a lawsuit. Vacancy - No money coming in means that you have to make the payments out of your own pocket. If you have an emergency fund for the rental property, you will be able to survive long vacancies with little trouble. If you don’t have one, you may find yourself scrambling to pay the rent to the harshest landlord of all - the bank.


Investment

Tips Minimizing the disadvantages of owning real estate is actually quite simple. While you won’t be able to eliminate the pitfalls completely, following these guidelines will take the teeth out of their bite. Keep Your Expectations Reasonable - Have the goal of positive cash flow, but don’t expect to be purchasing a new yacht at year’s end. If you keep your expectations in check, you won’t be tempted to jack up the rent and push out good tenants. Find a Balance between Earnings and Effort Are you “hands on”, or should you work with a property management firm? Current income doesn’t seem so great if you are putting in another full-time shift working on your rental property. There are property management firms that will run your rental property for a percentage of the rental income. Know the Rules - Federal and state laws outline your responsibilities and liabilities, so you can’t claim ignorance when something happens. You will have to do some reading; nevertheless, it is better to spend 20 hours in the library than in the courtroom.

Make Friends with a Lawyer, a Tax Professional and a Banker - If you find that you like owning rental properties, a network including these three professionals will be essential if you want to increase your Make Sure Your Leases Are Legal - If you make holdings. a mistake on the lease, you will find it more difficult to litigate if a tenant violates the Make Sure You Have the Right Kind of Insurance - After learning the rules, you will terms. need to buy insurance to cover your liability. Take the Time To Call References and Run You will need the help of an insurance Credit Checks - Too many landlords rush to professional to select the proper package fill a vacancy rather than taking the time to for your type of rental property. make sure the prospective tenant is a better option than an empty property. If you have Create an Emergency Fund - This is essentially time, you may want to drive by a prospective money earmarked for unexpected expenses tenant’s current living space - that is what your that are not covered by insurance. There is property will probably look like when that no set amount for an emergency fund, some say 20% of the value of the property, but tenant lives there. anything is better than nothing.

Investing in a rental property can be an Some associations may even allow you to join excellent decision if you go into it informed. Consider these words from Donald Trump: before you buy a rental property. “It’s tangible. It’s solid. It’s beautiful. It’s artistic … I just love real estate. Have the Property Inspected - One of the best ways to avoid unexpected expenses is to have the property inspected by a professional before you buy it.

or owners for mortgage loans. The back –end ratio takes into account

FRONT – END RATIO Example: Many lenders apply a back – end ratio of 36% when originating conventional loans. This means an applicant’s total monthly debt payment, including existing debt and the loan applied for must be no more than 36% of the applicant’s gross monthly income.

ESCAPE CLAUS a provision in a contract that allows one or more of the parties to cancel all or part of the contract if certain events or situations do or do not happen. Example: Mary agrees to buy Joe’s house for $100,000; the CONTRACT OF SALE includes an escape clause that allows Mary to cancel the contract if she cannot obtain approval for a mortgage loan of $80,000 within 60 days.

FRONT – END RATIO the monthly payment for a LOAN divided by the loan applicant’s qualifying monthly income. Used in the MORTGAGE underwriting process as one measure of the risk that the applicant will DEFAULT on the loan.Contrast with BACK – END RATIO. Example: The Jameses applied for a mortgage to buy a new home. The loan required a $500 monthly payment (including Escrow payment). Mr. Jane earns $3,000 per month, and Mrs. James does not have an income. The Lender calculated a front –end ratio of 16.7% which is well within the maximum for this type of loan.
