Planning Your Patio

MOORE COUNTY HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION

Patios make a great addition to your home's livable space and provide a great place to relax, dine and entertain. There are plenty of designs you can choose from, depending on the size and function of the patio you want to

build. Whether you choose to have a small or large patio, below are some patio design ideas to help you make your patio the perfect place to enjoy your outdoor living space. First you need to decide where you

want to build your patio. Do you want it to be an extension of your home? Or are you looking to create a private retreat away from the house? If you want to enjoy outdoor dinners or entertain family and friends it is best to place your patio as close to the kitchen as possible. Size really does matter when you're planning your patio, especially if you like to entertain or anticipate adding a spa, fireplace, outdoor kitchen or bar to your patio. When it comes to choosing the material for your patio, the most popular surfaces are stone, stone veneer, brick and concrete

By John Pandich Moore County Home Builders Association President

(stamped, colored or plain), either alone or in combination. It's a good idea to consider factors beyond cost like aesthetics and functionality. Try to complement the style of your home and if you plan on adding an outdoor kitchen or spa choose a surface that is smooth, yet safe. Tip: Keep in mind the darker the color of your material the more heat absorption and warmth. Don't forget to accent your patio with amenities like lowvoltage lighting, planters, fireplaces, fountains and furniture. Let your lifestyle

dictate the details you add to make the most of your outdoor living space. As the trend towards creating a comfortable outdoor living space continues to grow, so has the selection of outdoor furniture. Outdoor furniture manufacturers are creating chairs, sofas, loungers, benches and tables to match any architectural style in a variety of durable mediums like wicker, aluminum, iron and teak. Adding trees, flowers and shrubs can enhance the time you spend outside and

provide shade and privacy. If you're thinking of installing a patio cover, a pergola is a great idea. It not only provides shade, but by adding climbers such as ivy, grapevines or clematis you can really enhance the look of your patio. Other options are awnings, umbrellas, corrugated metal roofs, retractable covers and gazebos. Once you've decided how you want your patio to look it is best to have your contractor or landscape expert build your patio, since the materials are heavy and hard to work with, especially if you have a complex design.

Throughout the U.S., property values are just beginning to rebound and home improvement costs have been climbing. Is real estate still a solid investment — or a risky gamble? When it comes to buying stocks, the mantra on Wall Street has always been “buy low, sell high.” The same advice applies to real estate. But unlike the typically unpredictable stock market, several signs point to a healthy future for property investors. 1. Rates are still at extremely favorable levels and are expected to remail relatively stable. 2. The country remains in a buyer’s market because there’s still a surplus of homes for sale and sellers are willing to deal. 3. There is a threemonth “window of opportunity” before summer’s surge of buyers drives up demand and prices. Before you sit down

“I will provide an outstanding mortgage experience from application to closing”

with the Sunday paper and a highligher, however, think about these ABCs of successful real estate investing: A — Assess Your Market. Location really is everything in real estate. It determines how many buyers or tenants are available and directly affects your profit margin. Look at each potential purchase through a buyer’s or renter’s eyes as you research the property, the neighborhood, the schools, and comparable sales in the area. B — Be Prepared. Meet with your mortgage lender to get preapproval for financing and to discuss the best loan options, such as a lower downpayment program that can minimize out-of-pocket

expenses. When you do find the perfect property, you’ll be able to move quickly and decisively. C — Cash Reserves. Don’t underestimate (or overestimate) the amount you’ll need for repairs and carrying costs. Work with your real estate agent and lending professional to create realistic projections and timetables. For a free consultation to discuss which type of mortgage loan will work best for you, call Victoria Spannaus at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage at (800) 741-7813 or 910-6926225.
