JULY 29 -AUG 11, 2012
Purchasing a home involves a roller coaster of emotions, a pile of paperwork and nerves of steel. Beginning the process without a cursory course in home buying is not a wise venture. Here are steps along the way to expect on the way to your final destination -- home ownership. Step 1: Affordability: Before you visit a real estate agent, decide on a price range. The best way to do so is to sit down with a financial consultant or mortgage broker who will weigh your current debt against your income and savings. Step 2: Finding a home: Finding your prospective home can be a time-consuming process. Consult with a real estate broker, who will have current listings and up-to-date information, or set out on your own search by visiting open houses. Step 3: Making an offer: In most states, you’ll be required to make a formal offer on the house in the form of a written contract. It will state your intended offer price as well as information on a down payment and proposed closing date. Step 4: Securing a mortgage: Now that you know your purchase price, find a lender who will agree to lend you the money. Shop around for the best offer from several financial institutions, keeping in mind the current interest rate. Step 5: Contact an attorney: You’ll likely want to contact an attorney who will guide you through the legalities that will ensue. (The seller probably has an attorney working for him.) A lawyer can review the contract and advocate for items in your favor -- like improvements that need to be made, or appliances you’d like to keep. Your attorney will also facilitate contact between the seller, so you won’t need to be involved so thoroughly in the process. Step 6: Home inspection: A licensed professional can best assess if the home is structurally sound and built according to code. Should anything be illegal, or just not up to par, the inspector will include it in his report. Step 7: Walk-through: In most cases, you’ll be able to walk through the prospective home right before the closing to make sure the house is in the agreed upon condition. Step 8: The closing:You’ll be required to sign paperwork and present fees, called closing costs. Examples of closing costs include: down payment, property taxes, attorney’s fee, points, title insurance, clerical/processing costs, proof of homeowner’s insurance After you’ve signed what seems like a million documents, and initialed a million more, you will receive the keys to your new home. Congratulations on being a homeowner! -Prepared By The Times Leader Advertising Department

FOR FABULOUS WALL DECOR – THINK BIG
ig is back in wallpaper design. Not the giant full-color ﬂoral blooms from Grandma’s house, but oversized, luxurious prints that evoke a feeling of old Hollywood glamour and style. The designer trend of over-scaled stripes, scrolls, damasks, and harlequin prints adds a focal point to the home and drama to walls both big and small. Oversized prints balance out large walls in new homes and add dimension to smaller rooms, even if applied to just one wall. Another hot look to update the décor of any room is adding wallpaper with metallic ﬁnishes of gold, silver, bronze or copper. Unlike the shiny foils of the 70’s, the new metallics are in rich hues of matte color. Aﬀordable wallpaper murals from York are another way to add texture and character to rooms. From a sophisticated sunlit Tuscan hillside or an octagonal window overlooking a sparkling blue sea to a fun night game at a crowd-ﬁlled baseball stadium, new mural designs oﬀer limitless possibilities.
Large-scale pattern adds drama to this sitting room. Look achieved with Ronald Redding 18 Karat design from York Wallcoverings.
