Shirley Musto - Musto Global Real Estate


When you have a family, there’s many different needs and personalities at play within your home. Trying to please all of those different ways of life can cause some confusion. There are many ways that you can create an all-in-one space without creating a major construction zone. You need to think in terms of spaces that accommodate large groups of people from entertaining to gathering around the television for a movie or sporting event. Combine Several Rooms Into One When rooms aren’t connected, sometimes bringing the rooms together can bring more flow into the home. Consider knocking down walls or bringing aspects of one room into another room, like a countertop or island through parts of kitchen and living spaces. Get creative! In some spaces, simply knocking down just one wall can make the entire floor of the home feel bigger. Make The Use Of The Square Footage You Have One wall can cause you to miss out on the full use of the space your home provides. Clearing away walls between rooms not only allows your home to feel more open and airy, but it gives you as a homeowner more use of your space. You don’t always need to add on to your home in order to make the home feel bigger. Tuck Things Away Keeping stools under countertops, for example, is a great way to have a multi-use and multipurpose area. A television will be perfect in a cabinet. The cabinet can be used for both storage and TV viewing. Make sure you position it in a place where the TV can be seen from all corners of the room. This way everyone will have a space for their DVDs and there’s not a bad seat in the room to watch TV from. Use Furniture As Room Dividers Your furniture can multi-task by serving as a room divider. If you need to have a study in your living room, use a bookshelf to separate the area. It’s easy to do and will keep the flow of a room without disturbing your established setup. Use Rugs For Unity Nothing unifies a room quite like an area rug. Everything on or near the rug signifies a space. If you need to separate areas within the room, try an area rug for one purpose and hardwood, bare floor for the other use. Rugs are always cozy in reading rooms, for example. Hardwood floors may work better for a computer desk and rolling office chair. The position of everything in a room helps to identify what that part of the room will be used for. Marry The Rooms That Are Used Together If your family tends to hang out and use the kitchen and living room the most, make sure they have open space between them. You should consider adding a study for the students of the house in either room to make it easier to call everyone for dinner and provide homework help. As a bonus, it’s a great idea that you can keep an eye on the kids’ computer activity while you’re cooking! Most of all, no matter what room you’re working with, you want to make sure there’s a space for everything and everyone. That’s how you please an entire family with home design!

Contingencies are a great resource when it comes to both buying and selling a home. Both buyers and sellers tend to ask for certain contingencies to be included in the purchase contracts for a home. These contracts have a time limit on them to give both buyers and sellers time to get the things that the contracts state done. This time frame is usually somewhere in the neighborhood of several weeks’ time between the signing of the sales contract and the closing of the deal on the home.


Meeting And Removing Contingencies


During the time that you have between the sales agreement and the closing of the home, you’ll be working to either meet the contingencies or trying to have them removed. This can be done through renegotiating or having work orders completed. In some cases at this point the entire purchase may be called off.  


Standard Or Not?


Some contingencies are very common and it would be a bad choice to reject them. Buyer’s inspection contingencies, for example, are quite common. In this case, closing is subject to the approval of an inspection report. If a buyer really loves a property and is in the “desperate” category, they’ll often end up waiving this and take the home as is. Your realtor and attorney will be able to inform you of what types of contingencies are the norm. 


Some of the things that buyers and sellers see on these contracts are a little out of the ordinary or are less convenient. They become a matter of negotiation. Some sellers may ask that the deal is contingent upon them closing on another home. If you need a home in a hurry, you may want to reject this and request a time limit. As a buyer, you always risk failing to reach a contract with your seller when you ask for these changes. Anything that you’re able to handle in a contract is worth it if you really love the house, but there’s a balance. As a buyer, you can do the same, requesting a contingency that you sell your house before the new home is purchased. 


Financing 


Most standard home purchase contracts include a contingency that the buyer is able to secure financing to buy the home. There’s also a time frame for the intended financing to be secured. The only way to skip these contingencies is to have an all cash offer, which is pretty rare! 


Other contingencies that are almost a must include the inspection contingency and the title contingency. These protect the buyer in order to be sure that the home has a clean title and no major damage. These allow buyers to back out of a buying a home if there is more work to it than they thought. The title contingency also protects renters or squatters from selling a home that they do not own.
