Let's Be Merry

Putting 2 wreath on your front door makes the home look that much more warm and welcoming. If you don't want to spend too much, there are lots of creative ways to create a DIY wreath with items from home! Consider using construction paper shapes, large ribbon or inexpensive ornaments!

Christmas Tree with a Twist

If you really love Christmas trees, then why not have two!? If you already have a traditional spot for one tree, consider adding a second in another social room like the kitchen! Instead of using real ornaments, you can go with a theme and use edible Christmas décor like ribbon candy, gumdrops and a garland of popcorn or cranberries. Kids will love this!

Nuts Décor

Does the room need a little something? This is a simple craft but it makes a big impact! Get a glass vase and make your own table décor by combining things from around the house such as walnuts, cranberries and coconut for snow! Add a candle in the middle as a final touch.

Candle Lights

Create a soft, more intimate mood by using an excess of candles for your Christmas decor. Put the candles in a glass vase and use different sizes and festive colors to make it look more appealing. Try color green, cranberry, red or ivory shades. (Practice fire safety!)

Nature at its Best

Enjoy decorating with the natural elements of the winter season! Decorate your stairs, doorways and shelves with mixtures of garland, greenery and pine cones. To finish the look, add a long red ribbon and bow to the center.

Garland Cards

If you get lots of well-wishes in the mail during the holiday, then put them on display for all to see! You can easily hang some string throughout rooms and hang the festive cards you've collected over top. This is a super easy way to create décor and your guests can see the card they sent to you!

We hope these ideas get your wheels turning for how you can dress up your home with Christmas décor! Do you have friends or relatives looking to move to the Charlotte area? Owning a home before the year-end is still a great option for homeowners. Why invest in the Charlotte area?

Can You Guess Who the Second Largest First-Time Home Buying Group is?

Can You Guess Who the Second Largest First-Time Home Buying Group is

In 2015, 18% of first time home buyers were single women, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) 2015 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers. With home buying the largest group made up for 54% of first-time home buyers, which were married couples.

Male home buyers trailed single women, sitting at 11% of first-time home buyers. Of the rapidly growing group of women buying, details from the survey of recent home buyers is shown below:

  • Income average is $49,400
  • Average age is 32 years’ old
  • A larger percentage of women seek pre-approval of mortgage so that they can make informed decisions based on their budget
  • Most female home buyers think long-term when buying a home, considering what amenities they may need in the future

Can You Guess Who the Second Largest First-Time Home Buying Group is

It seems women are interested in investing in their own futures regardless of relationship status and they are seeking financial security. They are happy to be independent and no longer pay for their landlord’s mortgage. Independence is a strong factor.

Home Buying is no longer a mindset of marriage before mortgage regardless of gender. Unmarried couples represent 13% of home buyers and another 11% are single male home buyers as per the report.

BOTTOM LINE

If you’ve been putting off purchasing a home simply because of relationship status, then you may want to consider the choices of other home buyers and take on a mortgage of your own. More and more, single women are taking on the responsibility of home ownership and reaping the benefits.

Still not sure about buying on your own? Should You Rent or Buy? In Both Scenarios, You’re Paying a Mortgage is a great read to help in explaining the benefits of home buying if you are currently renting.

Should You Rent or Buy? In Both Scenarios, You’re Paying a Mortgage

Should You Rent or Buy? In Both Scenarios, You're Paying a Mortgage

Most renters struggle with the decision to purchase a home if they are uncomfortable with the idea of paying a mortgage. However, there is little difference between paying for your own mortgage and paying for your landlord's mortgage. Renters should take this into consideration when deciding between renting and buying, as they will always be paying for a mortgage unless they live rent-free.

Harvard University at the Joint Center for Housing Studies proposed:

“Households must consume housing whether they own or rent. Not even accounting for more favorable tax treatment of owning, homeowners pay debt service to pay down their own principal while households that rent pay down the principal of a landlord plus a rate of return. That's yet another reason owning often does-as Americans intuit-end up making more financial sense than renting.”

Head of Single - Family Sales & Relationship Management, a Senior Vice President at Freddie Mac, Christina Boyle further emphasized the security of a personal mortgage vs. paying rent:

“With a 30-year fixed rate mortgage, you'll have the certainty & stability of knowing what your mortgage payment will be for the next 30 years - unlike rents which will continue to rise over the next three decades.”

The mortgage payments you collect serve as “forced savings” that prepare you for the equity payments that will occur for. A guarantee that secures every landlord of their equity comes from their renters.
