1. Balance social and private spots
Studies suggest that the key to happiness resides in the strong bonds we form with family and friends.

2. Have a dedicated workspace
Today’s digital world allows many of us to work from home. Unfortunately, most people who do telecommute don’t have a dedicated workspace.

3. Let natural light in
Research shows that a flood of natural light instantly improves mood and maintains good health. Adding natural light is relatively easy.

4. Heat your home properly
A home that’s heated properly can have a dramatic impact on your health and your wallet. Cold, drafty, poorly heated rooms can be uncomfortable and weaken your immune system.

5. Reduce noise levels
Too much noise can have devastating consequences on our health and wellbeing.

6. Eliminate clutter
Cutting down on clutter in every room of your home can greatly reduce stress. Implement storage space to organize belongings and get rid of things you no longer need or use.

1. Red Wine

Blot up as much of the wine as possible. Use a paper towel or a clean, soft cloth to blot up any excess that hasn’t absorbed into the carpet fibers. Do not rub or scrub the stain!

2. Grass

Spray the stained area liberally with stain remover or apply laundry detergent directly to the stain. Rub the cloth together to work in the detergent. Wash the garment normally.

3. Grease

Wet the grease stain with cool water. Apply a grease-fighting dish soap like Dawn to the stain and gently rub it to loosen the grease. Rinse and repeat until you’ve removed all the surface grease.

4. Blood

Soak the garment in cold water. Use your fingers to gently rub the spot as it soaks. Depending on the amount of blood, you may need to change the water periodically as the blood comes out of the fabric and the water turns pink.

5. Perspiration

Invest in a good prewash stain remover. Apply it as directed, and let it sit for several minutes before washing.

The home buying process can be a little stressful, so take a look at these 5 tips for a first time homebuyer to help you prepare.

1. Start saving early and check your credit
Check your credit score before starting your search for a home, and do your best to dispute any discrepancies and take care of any outstanding debt as soon as possible.

2. Figure out how much house you can afford
Play around with a mortgage affordability calculator to figure out what you can afford based on your income now.

3. Explore your down payment and closing cost options
It’s a good idea to consider your two options here: pay them yourself or have the seller pay them for you.

4. Shop around for the best mortgage rates
Gather mortgage rate quotes from at least three lenders before deciding which one fits your budget and your needs best.

5. Get pre-approved
Before heading out to find your dream home, take the time to get a pre-approval letter from a lender that states how much they are willing to lend you and at what terms.

Is buying a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) home different than buying a home listed with a real estate agent? Is the process easier or harder?


A majority of sellers know you’ve worked with your agent closely for weeks (months?) before coming across their FSBO home and will gladly compensate your agent as any other seller would do.

The biggest difference between an FSBO home and one listed by an agent is that you’ll get to meet the owners face-to-face rather than meet with an agent when looking at the home.

As with any other home sale, there are laws the FSBO sellers must abide by. If the law says a seller has to inspect the home, make repairs, or disclose any problems, then the FSBO seller must oblige.

This form is a beacon of clarity in the dense fog of home-selling. It catalogs each competitive offer along with the name of the brokerage who entailed it. No more guessing games or hidden facts.

Both the listing Realtor and the seller now hold a new responsibility of signing this document. Embrace it as your contribution towards a more streamlined process.

The listing Realtor's job is to share this form with the buyer’s agents and to any buyers who made offers without any agents to guide them.

This keeps things clear and fair for everyone. Cooperation and communication can make the home-selling process better for us all.

Here are a few decorating aspects to consider when the TV is the focal point of any room.
1. The Size
Your new TV will likely be larger than the current one. You’ll need to make accommodations for the new TV.
2. Frequency Of Use
If you use it on a daily basis, you’ll want to display it in a way that makes it easy and convenient to use. If you only turn it on once in a while, you may want to choose options that minimize or hide its appearance.
3. Its Location In The Room
Be sure your new TV’s placement is within a comfortable line of sight for most seating options in the room.
4. The Lighting
Certain lighting can glare on larger TV screens, so it’s a good idea to have multiple lighting sources that are adjustable.
5. Cables And Cords
Unsightly cables and electrical cords can ruin the look of any room. You could choose one of the many cord management systems available for purchase rather than opting for twist ties or cable ties, which can be unsightly.
