How to Create A Welcoming Front Door?
by The Doug Perry Group at Wallick & Volk





A welcoming front porch can set a positive tone for anyone who comes to your door and can serve as a great introduction to your home. Here are a few quick, budget-friendly ways to give your front door a makeover.




1. Add Some Color Does your doorway leave something to be desired? Painting your front door can bring a bold pop of color to your entryway! It’s easy to do yourself: Just remove or tape over the hardware, sand the surface, and put down a few coats of a fun color.







2. Go Greener - Nothing energizes a space like plants! Whether you favor more traditional planters on either side of the door, hanging plants, or even potted flowers on a table or stand, try bringing some greenery to your porch. It’s a good idea to think about how these plants will complement or contrast with your landscaping in the yard too.







3. Upgrade Your Doormat - Not only does a doormat protect the interior of your home from the wet or dirty feet of your guests, it can also lend some personality to your door. A “welcome” mat is classic, but there are plenty of funny, sweet, and creative mats you can choose to show your visitors what kind of home they’re about to enter.







4. Furnish It - Even if you don’t have a full porch, a little furniture in the front can make your home appear more welcoming, and of course, it can encourage you to spend some time out there! A rocking chair or bench can fit on or beside even the smallest of porches, whereas a larger porch might benefit from a table and chairs, or maybe a porch swing.

Guest Blog: Keep Renting or Buy a Place of Your Own?
by Noel Bennett, Premier Mortgage Group

Keep renting or buy a place of our own? That is a question I have heard many times over my last twenty-plus years as a mortgage loan originator. It is a basic question, but carries with it so many important, weighty thoughts and considerations. “Buying is such a big commitment" or “I don’t want to throw my money away on rent any longer.” All of these thoughts, and more, swirl around in our heads as we think about buying a property. There are no right or wrong answers. All we can do is arm ourselves with as much information as possible and put it to use in making the best decision for our own, personal situation.

To start the conversation I have a phrase that I use quite often (I did not come up with this, I heard it somewhere along the way): "we are always paying a mortgage, we’re either paying someone else’s or our own.” If we start with that basic truth (there are exceptions to this of course, such as when we live with our parents or couch-surf with friends) then we can talk about when it makes sense to pay our own mortgage and when it makes sense to pay someone else’s? As a general rule, and you may guess what I’m going to say here considering the line of work that I am in, I feel that it’s better to pay our own mortgage.

Home Buyers Reveal: 'What I Wish I Had Known Before Buying My First Home'
by realtor.com

Love. Terror. Giddiness. Teeth-gnashing desperation. Buying your first home involves all these emotions, and more. And like so many other milestones in life, you won’t fully understand it until you go through the process yourself.
In an effort to clue you into some of the challenges you'll face as a first-time home buyer, we asked some folks who've already gone through the ringer to spill what they wish they'd known earlier that would have saved them a ton of time, effort, and tears. Here's to hoping their 20/20 hindsight will help pave your own path to homeownership.

1.. Even if a Home lLooks 'Perfect,' it Has Problems
First-time home buyer Hunt Ethridge fell hard for a recently renovated house in Jersey City, NJ, which looked like it was in absolutely perfect condition. What could go wrong?

2. Step Away From the Computer
Jonathan Cooper and his wife had a baby on the way, so they were ready and raring to buy their first home in Royersford, PA. They spent hours scrolling through real estate listings and Googling questions such as "how much home can I afford?"

3. Summon Reserves of Patience
While hunting for their first home in Omaha, NB, Jordan Bath and her partner put in several offers on different properties—all of which fell through.
“At the time, it was a major disappointment,” she recalls. Their real estate agent kept advising them to be patient. Sure enough, after a year of losing out on properties, the perfect home fell into their laps.
