House Hunting Across State Lines

Moving States - Paramount Equty

Moving is always challenging. One of the biggest headaches about moving is when you are actually leaving the state that you’re in now and moving somewhere new. Even if you are familiar with the state or you have lived there before that still doesn’t fully prepare you for how to house hunt when you are moving to a different state. Here are some tips and things to look for when you are considering how to house hunt when you are moving to a different state.

Neighborhood Preview: One of the first things you’re going to need to do is scour the neighborhoods broadly which fall in your new home parameters. Lucky for you there are so many hyper local resources which talk about the pluses and minuses of each distinct neighborhood. That is good and bad because you may find too much information  or what you’re finding may conflict.

Make Moving Day Fun…ish

Making Moving Day Fun…ish - Paramount Equity®

Next to dealing with death and getting married, moving is one of the highest stress factors people have to deal with in their lifetime. Moving does not have to be awful, however- it just requires a little bit of creativity to bring the excitement and joy of heading to a new home back to moving day.

Who Is On the Mortgage

The question is a moot point if only one name is on the mortgage. If this is the case, the person who is named on the mortgage is responsible for paying for the house. When both the husband and wife have their names on the mortgage, they are both responsible for paying off the mortgage. The only way to get out of this responsibility is for both parties to agree to sell the home. It is important to know that you may have trouble getting or

Sell Your Home Fast with Staging

Paramount Equity®- Staging

Selling a home is a part art, a part science, and a little bit luck. One of the things that can be done to increase the odds of a quick sale or a good offer is to stage it. Using furniture and decorations allows people to see how the house will look when it is a home, not just an empty space.

When staging your home to sell it faster, the first thing to do is reduce the clutter. Excess furniture should go into storage or be moved to the new home before opening for showings. Everything should be kept neat and tidy, as well as clean.

Every room should have a purpose when staging the house. If you have a ‘junk room’, consider moving everything out and setting it up as an office. This is easy to do (more…)
