Tips to Make Your House a Home

I caution buyers, especially first time home buyers, to consider all of the “things” they will need to buy when they move into their new home. You saved for the down payment and closing cost but did you set aside enough for the extras.

Aug. 11, 2010 - PRLog -- If you purchased new constructions or a remodeled home you will need window covering. There are some paper shades that attach to the window like post-it notes that work great for temporary use. (Mine remained on my new window for 2 years before I purchased blinds!)

If this is your first hose or you moved from a condo, you are going to need lawn care equipment. You might see what the neighborhood kid down the street charges and weigh that cost against a lawn mower.

The small things can run from stocking your pantry and refrigerator (no small feat) to buying towels that match the bathroom tile. You probably have more bedrooms in your new place so now you need beds and linens for that too.

We have not ever moved to the big ticket items. What about washer, dryer and refrigerator? Couches and chairs, a place to sit and eat a meal.

I realize this can be rather overwhelming but it should also be fun making your house a home.

I often recommend living in a space for awhile before you make major decorating decisions. Most of all enjoy the journey.
