5 tips to consider when viewing a home

1) The condition of the house: A “fixer-upper” can save you some cash or place you in a better neighborhood. These homes can be particularly attractive to first-time homeowners. Perhaps a home that’s ready to move into is more attractive. Deciding this up front can help narrow your home search.

Curb Appeal =&0=& Adding pizzazz to your home’s front entrance is an easy, low-cost way to up your home’s curb appeal. Try painting your door a pretty hue that coordinates with your home’s color. “Make sure there is a contrast between the front door and the facade of the home,” says Kristine Ginsberg, owner of Elite Staging and Redesign in Morris County, N.J.

For extra pop, place a potted plant or two by the front entrance. =&1=& A gallon of paint for the front door will cost as little as $25. Metal house numbers can be purchased for less than $4 each, while a potted mini evergreen like boxwood or a dwarf Alberta Spruce could run you less than $20.
