Mistakes Home Owners Often Make With Their House


When it comes to remodeling or taking care of a house, some homeowners make some unrealistic choices.

Do not go overboard on the remodeling of your house.  It is so easy to get caught up in the emotional attachment or the designing that you can throw the budget out the window.

Be realistic about pet odor.  Animals can be wonderful and bring us great joy.  But along with that they bring odors and hair.  Big or small they all smell and they likely shed as well.  You should have your carpets and furniture cleaned at least every six months and open the windows frequently to help get rid of any pet odors.

Do not remove walls unless you verify they are not load bearing.  It can be disastrous if you do not get the help of a professional contractor.

Curb appeal separates one neighborhood from another.  Unkempt yards can reduce property values.  Do not be “that” neighbor who does not mow their lawn or trim the shrubs.
