Once you've made the transition from renter to homeowner, life is never the same again! While new responsibilities like home repairs and paying property taxes may sometimes feel like a burden, there are plenty of benefits that should outweigh the costs.

For example, home ownership usually brings with it tax advantages and investment features that can work in your favor. Getting guidance from a licensed tax advisor and financial consultant can help make sure you're getting the maximum return on your real estate investment.

Tips For House Hunters

If you're in the process of buying or looking for a new house, an experienced real estate agent (and home inspector) can be a valuable resource when evaluating the condition of a home, estimating the current market value of the property, and predicting the growth potential of the neighborhood. As you may already know, the location of a property is one of the most important aspects of its current and future value.

Seller disclosure laws, which vary from one state to the next, can offer buyers some measure of protection against costly problems, health or safety hazards, or quality of life issues down the road.

There are two reasons that seller disclosure requirements don't always protect home buyers from property flaws and repair problems: seller dishonesty or hidden conditions sellers aren't aware of. They can't reveal issues they don't know about, and in some cases problems are hidden behind walls, ceilings, and other places.

As mentioned, a potential obstacle to getting the full story about a home's history, flaws, and weaknesses is the seller's unwillingness to be completely honest. Even though they're opening themselves up to a potential lawsuit if they fail to reveal known problems with the property, they may risk it if they think full disclosure may derail their chances to sell the house or get top dollar for it.

From the buyer's standpoint, the best advice to keep in mind is caveat emptor: "Let the buyer beware." Your real estate agent can fill you in on the details of exactly what a seller needs to disclose, in terms of flaws, defects, hazards, damage, repairs, infestations, and even bizarre things like paranormal activity, suicides or crimes that occurred in the house. You'll also want to know things like whether the property is in a designated flood plain, whether there are any boundary line disputes, and if there are known toxic substances on the premises or underground.

While there are many variations in seller disclosure forms (depending on state laws and local conditions), there are also standard questions in most forms. As a side note, some localities may require disclosure about hazards such as earthquakes, fires, or other potential natural disasters.

You can get an overall idea of what's included by doing an online search for property disclosure forms. Generally speaking, the most reliable sources of information are your real estate agent, a real estate attorney, or your state's Department of State.

Choosing the best bath tub comes down to personal taste, style, physical needs, personality and budget. There’s one other thing to consider when choosing a bath tub.That’s the size of your bathroom and, again, your personal taste.

The right bath tub lends tranquility

Just because your bathroom is large doesn’t mean that you want a large bath tub. You may want several square feet of open space in your bathroom. Or you might want to place a chair or a small entertainment set in your bathroom. The below bath tubs suit several design needs.

These three bath tubs also come in an array of colors. Pay attention to the textures and shapes. Choosing the tub that offers physical support is a must if you struggle to get in and out of the tub alone. If you need physical support like rails at the sides of your tub, a soaking tub may work well. Soaking tubs are deep, inviting you to soak sore limbs at will.A soaking tub can be larger than a traditional or standard bath tub. Depending on the size of your bathroom, a large soaking tub could take up the entire length of your bathroom’s longest wall.

Walk-in tubs offer added physical support too. Some walk-in tubs are similar in size to soaking tubs and garden tubs. Other walk-in tubs are waist high. A big convenience built into a walk-in tub is the tub’s seat. After entering the tub,you can sit down, close the tub door and bathe instead of standing while you bathe. If you have elderly relatives living with you long term, a walk-in tub may be the way to go.

Take your time choosing a bath tub

It’s the garden tub that is becoming a favorite among some apartment dwellers. As with a soaking or walk-in tub, the garden tub can be installed away from a bathroom wall or against a bathroom wall. A garden tub is generally oval shaped. It is long enough for a person five feet tall to easily stretch their legs fully out in. What you may love about a garden tub is how high warm water can rise up around your shoulders as you lower yourself into the tub.

All three tubs are made in marble, acrylic, fiberglass, cast iron and composite. Marble is easier to clean due to the fact that its surface is naturally smoother. When choosing a bath tub, pay attention to how it’s installed. For example, a bathtub installed in the corner of your bathroom will take up more space than a standalone tub.

Remember. It’s all about style and comfort when designing the interior rooms of your home,including your bathroom. Soft colors and soft lighting motivate you to relax as soon as you enter your bathroom. Smooth jazz, orchestra or soft R&B or rock help to wash worries away. Yet, it’s your bath tub where you may fully relax,sinking down into a tub of warm, sudsy bath water, welcoming scents wafting up your nose. Choose your bath tub wisely.
