How to Decorate Your Home With Grandma's Antiques


We have all experienced this before at one time or another, that moment your realize you have such an abundance of old antiques that have been passed on from family or friends before us, but seemingly nothing to do with them.  While these may items that you would like to incorporate into your homes interior design, the problem for most people is that they are unable to figure out where to place these ornate pieces to best display them.  Thankfully, here are some awesome tips for making use of those antique heirlooms.

Use furniture as a focal point :
As interior design style changes over time it may feel like a challenge to put your family's antiques to proper use. The best way to mix furniture styles is to create a focal point featuring the antique piece on display.

Create a grouping :
If you have a number of smaller items that you’ve inherited and want to use, don’t scatter them across the house. Instead, group them all together in one place and use them as a focal point for friends and family. Decorative plates, photographs and paintings make great wall art.

Determine what is useful :
There was a time when all this furniture wasn’t just on display. Before they were antiques, they were functional. Use this opportunity to try and functionally fit these pieces into your home, giving them new life. 

Know when to let go :
After all the effort of trying to put to use these antiques that you've had stored away, you may realize that certain items no longer have a practical use for you.  If this is the case, you have a few options; sell what you can; donate other pieces to people who can use them. If you love them but can’t keep them, give them to other family members who can use them.

Millennials Poised to Pounce on Housing Market, Poll Finds

The threat of rising interest rates and higher home prices might not deter a pent-up market: first-time millennial homebuyers. Nearly two-thirds (65%) of adults ages 25 to 34 participating in a survey of Realtor.com visitors said they intend to buy a home within three months. That’s up from 54% of the site’s users responding to the same survey in January.
Jonathan Smoke, Realtor.com chief economist, says it’s a healthy sign for the housing market overall.
“This roughly translates to three-month demand for homes of approximately 1.2 million — significant but not out of line with historical levels of buying activity from this critical cohort,” Smoke tells NerdWallet.  “According to NAR Buyer Profile data going back to 1981, 25- to 34-year-olds always represent the highest share of home purchases.”
One hurdle to clear — and it’s not what you might think :
The biggest barrier to buying a home has traditionally been saving for a down payment. While it is on the list of hurdles to clear in the survey, it’s not the most significant factor. Around 40% of the respondents said they “have not yet found a house that meets their needs” — and that was the biggest obstacle holding them back from homeownership.
The poll also revealed other reasons why millennials have been slower to buy homes:

•They’ve had difficulty finding a house within their budget.
•They haven’t spent enough time house-hunting.
•They’re facing financial hurdles, such as a lack of credit or being tied to a lease.
“The stumbling block of finding a house that meets their needs is a function of available inventory,” Smoke says. “The second impediment more specifically addresses high prices/budget. Those are the top two issues for first-time buyers and are very close.”
First-time homebuyers need to prioritize :
Should new homebuyers expect to give up certain home features or amenities to snag their first home?
“For some homebuyers, the size and design of their home is most important, while others might put a higher priority on proximity to work or transportation needs,” says Smitha Ramchandani, a Realtor in Morristown, New Jersey.
Ramchandani says it’s important for first-timers to prioritize their needs.
“Homebuyers should know what they absolutely need and what they want,” she says. “The two are different when it comes to the tough decision of buying a home. Flexibility is also important. What if you can get 80% of the items on your wish list? This is why it’s important to understand what is on your must-have list.”
She says first-time millennial homebuyers are looking for smaller homes and placing a higher emphasis on neighborhood and convenience — practicality over luxury.
“Millennials are telling me they want a short commute to work and access to public transportation,” Ramchandani says. “This generation is also not viewing their first home purchase as a place where they will live in 20 years. Surveys of millennials show they expect to live in this home for an average of 8 to 10 years.”
Is now a good time to buy?
But first-time homebuyers are bound to fret about whether it’s “the right time to buy.” Realtor.com’s Smoke leaves no doubt about how he feels.
“Absolutely!” Smoke says. “Assuming they can qualify for a mortgage and have the necessary funds for a down payment, the combination of rising home prices and higher interest rates as well as high and increasing rents as the alternative, means that the opportunity cost of not buying now is significant. We’ve estimated that delaying one year on average reduces the 30-year wealth creation of owning by more than $17,000.”
There are a lot of assumptions packed into the previous paragraph, but deciding when to buy is a decision involving a lot of moving parts — with at least five things to consider in the process. Making the right move is as much about when as where and how.

First Time Homebuyers: Don't Fall Into The Rent Trap

2016 is shaping up to be quite special for the housing market as a whole, as the stars has finally aligned perfectly allowing record numbers of tenants to rip up those leases and kick the renting lifestyle for good!

Historically low mortgage rates will not last much longer & trends tell us home prices will only continue to rise. But new programs such as the 3% down payment option from Fannie and Freddie are sweetening the deal for new buyers.  FHA's mortgage insurance premium has also been cut making these types of loans affordable again, as well as incomes across the board are rising.

Many landlords are practically pushing their tenants out the door. Rents are rising every month due to the continued demand for rental property and at the same time leaving tenants with unexpected expenses.  In market after market, rent vs. buy comparisons show renters how much they are loosing by staying put in their current lease.

It has never been a better time for first-time home buyers to get into the housing market, shred those leases and start building equity in your new home!

Smitha speaks with Daily Record giving her Insight into how Millennials are influencing changes across the Real Estate Market.

Millennials set new homebuying trends

Daily Record | June 6, 2015 

A recent study by the National Association of Realtors found millennials want to live in urban and central city areas. They’re also choosing neighborhoods by factoring in their commuting time to work.


Millennials are now the largest population of homebuyers, out-pacing all other generations, but when it comes to selling to them, home sellers are having difficulty reaching this evasive and mobile group.

For years, marketers and advertisers have unsuccessfully tried to reach millennials – the generation born between the 1980s and early 2000s. Now, the real estate agency is the next industry that needs to figure out how to reach this huge consumer group.

If you’re trying to sell your home to any millennial, the first thing you need to understand is how they think and feel. Luckily, we have research for that.

A recent study by the National Association of Realtors found they want to live in urban and central city areas. They’re also choosing neighborhoods by factoring in their commuting time to work.

This means if you’re trying to sell a home to millennials – and you are fortunate enough to live close to a train station or the City – you might want to play that up with your marketing material.

Likewise, that same study found that millennials are different from other generations in how they view their future home. Millennials don’t see themselves living in their future homes for as long as their parents lived in their homes. Instead, millennials believe they will live in their new home for no more than 10-years, according to that study. Yes – school districts are important decision factors for any home purchase, but you may want to leave out details on the high school if you’re potential millennial-era home buying couple doesn’t even have kids yet.

And on a personal level, I can also tell you that I am seeing millennials sizing-down from homes where they grew up. Millennials aren’t looking for the mega-mansions that their parents bought 20 years ago. Today’s 34-and-younger group is choosing practicality over luxury. They want a home that fits their needs – not a home that fits the needs of a small-sized army.

So just as the baby boomer generation ignited a housing boom in America and changed the face of suburbia, I suspect this next generation of homebuyers will once again alter the way homes are sold and bought.
