5 Things at Home You Didn’t Know You Could Fix Yourself

“Often what’s wrong with some modernist houses – they’re kept vacuum-sealed all the way through. And then people wonder why they haven’t any atmosphere.” – John Stefanidis

We all hate damages. Especially when your favorite thing is broken, we feel like we have already lost a very important thing in our life. Whether you like it or not, damages at home are inevitable. One of the reasons is probably because you consistently used that particular thing. It does not matter if you lived in a condo for rent in Bonifacio Global City or any condominiums in the Philippines, you will find damages at home.

But just because might notice some damages, that does not mean that it is going to be a big deal. There are a lot of damages where you can fix it yourself. You do not need to call a professional just to fix it for you. Keep in mind that some damages may be simple enough for you to mend it. To give you an idea, we list down some things you have at home where you can fix yourself.

1. Uneven shower stream

If you know that there is something wrong with the shower, then you should check behind the shower’s handle. There is a valve that is responsible for correctly mixing hot and cold water, and kept the pressure consistent. But before you do the fixing, make sure to shut off the water to the shower, then you can now remove the screws holding the handle through the use of plier and the trim plate on. After, install a replacement pressure to balance the cartridge.

2. Toilet bowl scratches

This is also one of the many things at home where you can fix it yourself. If there are any bowl scratches or anything that keeps the bowl from flushing, then you can clear it with a drain snake. Scrubbing the marks with kitchen scouring pad is also another thing you can use to fix the toilet.

3. Sluggish vent-hood suction

When you have poor suction in your kitchen sink, then you probably need to replace the motor. But before you start fixing, always remember to shut the power to the hood and remove any filters. You also need to pull out the fan blade and find the motor’s wiring harness. Unclip it and unscrew the motor from its blanket. And then attached the replacement motor and reconnected the harness before you install the fan blade again.

4. Dripping dishwasher

This is one thing that we hate whenever it is damaged. Keep in mind that constant use of the dishwasher, the thick rubber gasket along the edge of the tub can also become brittle. That is why, it is important for you to examine the gasket and gently pull it out and reseat it into the tub, and then run the dishwasher. However, if the dishwasher is still leaking, then you should get a replacement gasket and install it in the same way.

5. Slow dryer

It is a must for a dryer to have a proper airflow to finish a load of clothing. However, if your dryer is not working, then this might not a start to wash your clothes. To fix it, you need to remove the front panel and housing cover and unhook the door switch’s wires. Behind that is the blower wheel, remove it from the motor shaft with snap ring pliers. You then need to slide the new wheel in place and test that if it spins by hand. If it does, then you have to reassemble the dryer back to its form.

Easy and Effective Ways to Save For Your Downpayment

Home Mortgage Down Payment, A Gray House, Brown Card And Calculator On Stone Background

Purchasing a property is one of the largest single purchases one will make in life. And when it comes to real estate investment, saving for your first down payment and building home equity can be a way to build wealth for your future. That only means, saving money for a down payment should not be taken lightly. However, If you think saving is as easy as you think it is, wait until you get started.

It’s not to scare you, but to give you a heads up on what’s typically going to happen especially when saving for a down payment. Regardless of the property, you want to invest; be it Solstice or any real estate property, there are certain things to consider when saving.

Find affordable alternatives

The moment you decide to invest in a real estate, compromising is one common thing you need to consider. For instance, you can drop your gym membership for exercising at home. Or perhaps, lose the cable subscription and sign up for Netflix. Having these as your alternative, you can save as much as you can. One thing is for sure; you can still continue to live your life without spending too much on the things you do not need. Moreover, think twice before you buy something – you may not need that particular thing.

Reward yourself

Yes, saving may be hard, but that does not mean you should hate it. That means you can break you savings goal down into manageable chunks, and think of a low-cost reward for yourself. After saving a lot of money in week or month, you can treat yourself to a dinner, or something that you want to have. However, you should also be mindful of the price. Just because it is your reward, you should also spend a lot of money on it. Of course, that should also not be the case. Since you are still saving for the down payment, you should also be mindful of the things you are want to buy.

Turn your savings into more savings

Did you know that it is possible for you to turn your savings into more savings? Perhaps, you can consider high-yield saving accounts, certificates of deposit, peer-to-peer lending and mutual funds. Moreover, you have to make sure to get solid advice about whether your timeline is appropriate for various investment options. But if you are not sure about these alternatives, you can go for high-yield accounts. This is one of the most conservative choices you can make since they are insured by the federal government.

Turn your hobbies into side gigs

Whether you realize it or not, you can turn your hobbies into money. How? There are people out there who can appreciate an individual skill where they are willing to pay for your ability. Let’s take painting, for example; some people would buy your artworks. Or perhaps, if you are good at playing piano, guitar, drums or any instruments, you can offer some lessons. With this, you are not enjoying doing your hobbies, but you also earn extra income out from it.

Although saving money can be challenging and daunting, that should not be that hard as you think it is. You can make it fun while you are saving money for the down payment. Moreover, this is one way you can achieve your dream home.

“It’s not how much money you make, but how much money you keep, how hard it works for you, and how many generations you keep it for.” – Robert Kiyosaki

art-gallery-wall-gallerywall

Whether you realize it or not, there will always be a beauty in a big blank and clean wall. Agree? Of course, this is the time when you can actively and creatively imagine what things to put to fill in your big empty wall. For some, this is one of the common problems they faced especially when they don’t know anything about decorating at all.

It does not matter if you are living in a real estate Cebu, decorating your wall is one of the things you can do to make your wall look good. Well, if you don’t have any idea at all on what you’re supposed to do aside from the typical paintings we have on our wall, then below are some simple and doable examples you can apply.

Build a bookshelf

If you have a lot of things or books yet you don’t have enough space in your home, then you might want to have a bookshelf installed on your wall. Instead of having or putting decorations, make the bookshelf as part of the decorations you have on your wall. With that, you’re not just saving up more space but also, you just made a great and stylish way to have a bookshelf.

Installation of bookshelf may be hard on your part. Of course, you also have to make sure that the shelves are properly installed on the wall to have a good and durable base.

Statement art

Aside from the pictures and paintings, you can also have statement art on your wall.  Installing a striking piece of statement art can be eye-catching to the viewers. Moreover, isn’t it nice to wake up in the morning with a piece of interesting piece of art on your wall?  Well, hanging one or two statement arts on your wall would be enough.

Wall coverings

One of the struggles most homeowners have is that they don’t have anything to decorate at all. Perhaps, they are one of those homeowners who invest in a property with no furniture to fill the empty spaces yet. Well, you can go with wall coverings or wallpapers. Fret not! Wallpapers are easy to install on your walls. You just have to make sure that there will be no lumps on the surface.

There are a lot of styles when it comes to wallpapers.  And it will always be up to you on what style of wallpaper you want to use.

The gallery wall

If you are a kind of person who likes to take pictures or paintings, then the gallery wall might suit your taste. You can have your wall combined with your photos and paintings with different sizes and color and framed or unframed artwork. You can also fill your wall with textiles and other wall decals. Of course, it is also important for you to consider mix matching your decals on the paintings of your wall. Make sure that the color and shapes, sizes can go along with your wall.

If you are not sure about the color combinations, then you can go neutral yet bold, sophisticated and creative in many ways.

Decorating your wall will always depend on what you want to do or have on your wall. Before you can decide on what kind of decorations you want for your wall, you also have to consider about whether your wall and the decorations are incorporated or not. If not, then you have to find ways on how you can mix and match your decals to your walls without compromising its quality.

For Homebuyers: Avoid These Nightmares in Buying a Condo

realestate-nightmare

It is everybody’s dream to have their own condominium. The environment, the lifestyle, and the convenience are one of the things you can experience when you have a condo. Some people will say that if you have a condo, your life will get better. Agree? Perhaps, that is one of the reasons why people are now planning to buy and have one.

 

There will always be a caveat in buying and choosing a condominium. That is why, whether you’re planning to invest in Avida condo Davao or any condominiums in the Philippines,  it is important to know and be careful in buying and choosing what’s suits you best. Here are the things that most people had experienced before they own a condo.

 

Slow processing of documents

 

Hundreds to thousands of people are buying a condominium every year; it is expected that there are also hundreds to thousands of documents that needs to be processed. Especially when there are a lot of holidays adding up, no work, no processing of documents and more and more documents are piling up. What more would you expect? Well, patience is always a virtue. So, try to enjoy and wait!

 

Of course, that situation is acceptable and reasonable, you may say. But what if the company you transacted is just way too slow in processing your documents? Wait one month later. One of your documents needs to be reviewed further, wait for another two more weeks. Ugh! I know you hate to wait especially when you already waited long enough.

 

A friendly advice:

 

When the company you transacted is way too slow in processing your documents, you have to follow up on the progress of your documents constantly. Do not just wait for their call, because sometimes, they can also forget about it especially when there are also other documents to be processed. And when they do, it will take you more than a month to wait.

 

Constant follow up on the company may give them a heads-up that your documents need to be processed. And by that, they might make you a priority over the others. Try it, it works! Just don’t be rude.

 

Scam

 

This is one of the reasons why we are so afraid of trusting people and companies are especially doing and transacting something with them. We can’t say or pinpoint individuals or companies that are a scam since they persuade and puts up a façade to be more convincing which gets our attention and trust easily. They can also convince you with impressive words and offers you great deals for you to buy their products and accept their offer.

 

And when we are trapped in their schemes, we feel frustrated and disappointed. Some people do things to the extent where they can just have the refund and bring back what they lost, and other things that can make the situation more hassle and chaotic. As much as possible we want to avoid these things.

 

A friendly advice:

 

Before consulting and trusting a company or a person, have a background check. By researching their company background, you will know what kind of company they are. Reading their business reviews or comments will give you an idea whether they are trustworthy enough to help you in choosing and buying a condo.

 

A little investigation of the company will give you no harm; it is making sure that you are in good hands when you choose and buy a condominium. We all know it is not easy to trust especially when it comes to a lot of money matters.

 

Hidden add-ons

 

Most people, if not all, usually avail promos or packages in buying a condominium. It is also one way to save more. The company will give sets of packages that you can choose on. They will also give you the total amount and the breakdown of the payments.

 

Sometimes when everything is set, later will you know that there will be hidden add-ons that must be paid. Of course, you can’t say no since you already have your full or initial payments.  Situations like this give us headaches and disappointments especially when the budget is tight.

 

A friendly advice:

 

When you avail promos or packages, you have to make sure that everything is clear. From the things that are included in the packages to the down payments, there must be a clear and visible written agreement in every transaction.

 

There is no wrong if you make certain to every transaction that you make. It is just to make sure that there will be no further problems and confusions that will occur later on.

Hiring some interior decorator may be an advantage. But if you are on a tight budget, making sure that you are doing the right thing when it comes to home design is a must for you to do. And to give you some ideas, below are some things you should never do in home decorating.

Photo overload on surfaces

Admittedly, we tend to put our photos on display. But do you know that photos can also be one of the common decorating mistakes most homeowners are still doing? When you put or display too many picture frames on surfaces, it can look messy. And I’m sure you do not want to have a messy surface in your home, right? However, if you really want to display some pictures, why don’t you create a photo collage on your wall with matching frames. Of course, the photos does not just add beauty to your home, but it also saves a lot of spaces.

Cord messes

Cords on your appliances and other gadgets at home should not be taken lightly. Of course, it does not just distract a beautiful home, but it is also dangerous when it comes to accidents. As a homeowner, you should think about how you can use your cords without posing a risk to your home. Perhaps, you can label every cord in your home and unplug everything that you do not use. And most importantly, you should organize accordingly.

Out of place themes

Themes are a big factor when it comes to home designs. Of course, they add beauty and ambiance to our home. If you are a kind of person who wants minimalist in their home, then you can have such theme. However, you also have to be careful when choosing the right theme for your home. Just because you like that particular theme, that does not mean that it will also look good on your home. Well, why don’t you try adding home-related accent pieces rather than having your home with out of place themes?

Dated hardware

Whether you realize it or not, every single detail found in your home is important. Details such as your hardware on your furniture or even on your kitchen cabinets can make a big difference. If you think that installing new cabinet knobs are expensive, then you better think again. You can definitely find a piece of hardware that are stylish enough yet at an affordable price. You just have to make sure that you know where and what to buy for you to have a better outcome on the decorations of your home.

Too many pillows

It is understandable why we want to have many pillows at home. Of course, it’s fluffy, soft and it is definitely comfortable for us to use. However, do you know that having too many pillows at home is also not a good idea when decorating your home? When you have so many pillows at home, there will be a tendency that you can barely sit down. And I’m sure it is not going to be as comfortable as you want to.

If you want to include throw pillows in your living room or any other rooms you have at home, then try to limit accent pillows on a sofa to two or three. With that, it will be much easier for you to sit comfortably.

This is one of the most common and obvious things you should never forget. If you have anything in particular that you don’t want them to see, then you better hide it in a safe place.

For an obvious reason, the trash can is an important thing for bathroom use. And mind you, a bathroom will never be complete if there is no place where they can put their trash such as toilet papers and another kind of trashes. That is why, if you don’t want to make your bathroom dirty or messy, then you better provide a trash can for it.

Clean and especially “boy clean” your bathroom

It is inevitable that guests may sometimes do some messy stuff in the bathroom. Of course, it is also your duty on how you are going to make it and keep it clean. Perhaps, you can provide a signage indicating to clean after their mess, or you can personal clean the bathroom from time to time. With that, you can make sure that the bathroom is always ready for the next user.
