But what are you doing to bring your home into fall?

Here are a few easy decorating ideas you can do to welcome the cooler temperatures and beautiful colors into your home.

DIY Home Decorating Tips for Fall

You don’t have to paint your walls or buy new furniture to get your home ready for fall.

Instead, you can use some simple seasonal tricks to welcome autumn leaves and pumpkin spices into your home, and impress your visitors in the process.

1. Bring Out the Cinnamon- and Pumpkin-Scented Candles

The smell of those warm spices gently wafting throughout your home is enough to energize you for the season.

Light a few candles in your kitchen or living room, as well as other rooms that receive the most traffic in your home. Your home will be looking — and smelling — festive in no time.

2. Stick a Seasonal Flag Outside

Personalize your front yard by placing a welcoming fall flag by the mailbox, in your front garden, or hanging from your front porch. Let people know that you’re ready for autumn!

3. Swap Out Your Dining Table Centerpiece

Put the colorful summer tones away for next year and bring out your festive fall accents.

  • red, orange, and yellow pillar candles
  • roses or colorful leaves in a vase
  • small pumpkins
  • old-fashioned lanterns
  • a bowl of apples

4. Hang a Festive Wreath on Your Front Door

Add some fall foliage, colorful ribbon, or burlap accents to an autumn wreath and catch the eye of your friends and neighbors.

People tend to notice your home’s decorations when they first spy your house, which is why front door accents are often included in tips for increasing curb appeal. Display your fall home readiness with a red, gold, and brown wreath on your door!

5. Decorate Your Shelves with Pine Cones and Oak Leaves

If you have a mantle above your fireplace or an empty space on a bookshelf, fill it with simple arrangements of fall foliage — pine cones, oak leaves, acorns, and pumpkins.

To truly make a statement with your decor, pair vibrantly colored leaves with a white or neutral color base, and enjoy the display capture the attention of passersby.

A Home Inspection Primer – Negotiating the Fixes

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Improvement and Fixes

Recently, I began reviewing the sometimes complex process of performing and utilizing home inspections as an important component of a home buying transaction.

The site helpinghomesellers.com offers a wealth of information regarding home inspections. In this segment, we’ll take a look at negotiating home inspection issues using the site as a guide.

According to the consumer information site, most contracts provide the opportunity to negotiate any repairs to the satisfaction of the buyers. This includes either doing some or all the repairs and/or compensating the buyers with cash.

Although a whole house inspection may turn up an expensive repair, sellers may be able to negotiate a cash settlement that is less expensive than what the repair would have cost. Offer money to the buyers so they can choose how the repair is completed.

Helpinghomesellers.com illustrates a classic example where a seller’s furnace died just prior to closing. The buyers understandably wanted a new furnace, and the cheapest one to be found was $1,900.

Without telling the buyer the amount, the agent, representing the seller, recommended that the seller offered to give the buyers $1,400, pointing out they could use this money towards installing any type of furnace they wanted.

Otherwise, the seller was obligated to just install a new one that worked. The buyers took the money and the seller saved $500.

Avoid repairing items that lend themselves to a subjective interpretation as to how well the repair was done. Say a garage roof needs some serious shingle repair and replacement.

After completion, what if the buyers don’t think the new shingles match the originals that well? Instead, helpinghomesellers.com says offer the buyers money so that they can repair this type of problem by themselves and you’ll save a whole lot of problems.

Money, unlike repair work, is not subject to interpretation. It sure beats sweating out the buyers’ approval, which is often done at the eleventh hour walk through.

A dollar settlement is almost always acceptable to buyers and it eliminates last minute problems.
