Tips for Home Renovation

The home renovation is costly so we need to come up with a plan. We will do careful planning and researching on the tips to renovate our house at an affordable price. Here are the tips that can help us to make our plan into a reality:

Create and Stick to a Budget

We can use the spreadsheet to list down the items that we will purchase and canvass the price for the computation. It is important that we also note our daily expenses such as transportation means or our car expenses which include the fuel and repair, our grocery and our saving from the total income we have for the month. It will serve as the guideline to know the budget in renovating our house.

Online Shopping 

We can search in the web browser the site of the online shopping; we can have the lists of the product that we want to purchase. In the shopping site, we can use a tool to compare the price and brand of the products. It can also offer a free coupon to purchase with a good quality of brand at a lower price.

Tidy and Cleanliness 

Make our house tidy by throwing the things that make our home messy, donate or sell old clothes or toys at a cheap price. Removing the unnecessary things in our house will allow us to have the new arrangement of our furniture and other things to have more space into our house and prevent falling of the object into our head that will result in the injury.

Reduce Labor Cost 

We can watch videos on how to remove the nails and fixing the tables, chairs or cabinet so that we can do it on our own and it prevents us from hiring the professional to ensure that we can save money. Doing the fixing of our things can be an exciting and challenging experience since we are just a beginner.

Replace New 

If we have the old appliances such as the rice cooker, washing machine, and refrigerator; we must replace it with a new one because an old one has the high consumption of the electrical energy that can result to have the higher bill to pay. In purchasing, we can choose the brand that has a low consumption of electrical energy for us to have savings.

Before making a renovation of our house, we need to consider where to get a budget such as our savings or applying for a loan to a bank. We just keep in mind that we can renovate our house at lower expenses such as the new arrangement of the appliances and furniture, changing the color of the house and replacing the old appliances.

How to Perform a House Inspection?

In purchasing a home, we need to visit the offered home so we can have the inspections to determine if it has a good location and to know if it has the best features. We can visit many times to have the assurance that the house is in good term to have the negotiation of the right price based on the quality of the house.

Initial Inspection

The first thing that we must do is to have a tour around the house to check the quality of the landscape as well as the exterior and interior design of the house. To make sure that there is no leakage inside the house, we can go to the house together with the seller on a rainy day.

Check the Interior and Exterior Design

Checking the interior design can determine if it has enough space and let us feel comfortable when we are inside the house. If there is the old thing from the seller, we must tell them to clean up his/her belongings to see the complete view of the interior to easily come with the changes to do. In the exterior design, we must look around if there is a crack or damage to prevent us from buying the house that can make us spend more money on the fixing of the wall.

Examine the Wiring

We can ask the electric box to make sure that it is new and still functioning. Switching on the electric box is an easy way to determine if it supplies electrical energy into the socket and the bulb in the house. We can also consult an electrician to check if there is proper wiring to prevent the short circuit and electric shock that can cause to burn the house.

Hiring a License Inspector

Before hiring the inspector, we must ask permission to the seller that we want to hire a licensed inspector to check the house they offer. If the seller agrees, he/she will accompany us to open the door of the house for the inspection. It can also help the seller to be aware if there is part of the house that needs to be fixed and have the fair negotiation of the price of the house.

In choosing the license inspector, we must ask our family, friends, and neighbors to recommend us the best inspector for the home inspection is important in choosing the best house that has the best features and gives us comfort. The report can give us accurate and reliable details which include the list of the parts of the house that needs to repair and how much money will it require to fix it. In other words, we must be wise in choosing a house to purchase to save money.
