5 Ways to Improve Your Property Before You Move In

5 Ways to Improve Your Property Before You Move In

5 Ways to Improve Your Property Before You Move In


If you have just bought a home, but you feel you need to work on making things more efficient with some home improvement, then you may be on the right track. The following tips will give you an idea what you can do before the big move-in day in terms of home improvement. Let’s begin with some of the more obvious ones on our five tips:

• Replace the locks outside, as they will be at risk in case some of the previous owners have spare keys. No matter how nice and friendly the transfer of ownership happened, you should keep in mind that this home is now yours and you need to do what you can to keep it that way. Use higher quality locks and either use a locksmith to install the complicated ones or buy some from your nearest home improvement store and install them yourself.

• Another thing you can do is to work on improving the kitchen and bathroom in your new home. You don’t have to necessarily remodel the entire thing, but you might want to work on updating them before you set your boxes down and you unpack. Swap counters, sinks, faucets and other smaller details in both locations for a more fresh, but working look that doesn’t stray too far from what you need. It will also save you the trouble of dealing with it later down the line if you feel you don’t like what you found when you bought the property.

• Remove old wallpaper from the walls and make sure you replace it with something new and fresh. This will not only improve the rooms visually, but it will also make your future home improvement efforts less taxing. Do it with a steamer or a product made for the purpose, just do so before moving in.

• You can also do a good bit of painting, whether on the inside or the outside. The advantage to that should be fairly obvious – you can paint the home in the colors of your choosing, rather than what you found when you decided to buy it. It will be much easier than dealing with wallpaper removal, but you should still do this while the place is empty.

• The last improvement on our list is the replacement of flooring where needed. If you see the rooms are not in perfect shape and you feel you can do better, you can pick a different type of floor to work with. You can usually get a better price with a company that focuses on such tasks if you have an empty home rather than one that’s already lived in due to the logistics involved.

Peel and Stick or Real Tile: Which Would You Prefer?

Posted by on Mar 17, 2014 in Blog, Building, Buying a Home, First Time Home Buyer, HUNT Real Estate, Renovation | 0 comments

Peel and Stick or Real Tile: Which Would You Prefer?

Peel and Stick or Real Tile: Which Would You Prefer?
When it comes time for renovating the floors of your home, there are many styles you can choose from. The floor can set the tempo of your room and is a cornerstone to your specific design. Often times many people are torn between peel and stick tile and real ceramic or stone. Both of these have benefits that can determine which is right for your particular project.

Cost - Peel and stick tile is considerably less expensive to install as opposed to real tile. The vinyl tile itself can be as cheap as $0.39 per square foot depending on the style and brand you prefer. Ceramic, stone or glass tile can cost $2.00 per square foot and up depending on the same factors. This isn’t including the mortar and other additions that each method will utilize during construction.

Ease of Installation - When it comes to the installation between these two surfaces, peel and stick tile is considerably easier. Once the floorboard is fastened to the frame and possibly coated with Kilz, virtually anyone with a razor knife can place the tiles. The same can’t be said while using real materials for tile such as ceramic or glass. The difficulty jumps up considerably as more tools and precise measurements are more common. It is this difficulty that dissuades many from doing it themselves.

Style and Look - When developing the perfect look for your needs, real tile may just have a few more choices than manufacturers of peel and stick vinyl tiles. This is mostly because of the fact that nearly anything can be converted to support a flooring idea from real substances. Stones, marble, glass, ceramic designs and far more are available in a plethora of different shades and colors. However, peel and stick manufacturers have also produced an amazing array of styles to choose from – some of which look amazingly real.

Longevity – When it comes to lasting the longest through regular wear and tear, real tiles seem to have the most to deliver. If you’re using stone, this could be an amazingly long time. However, peel and stick manufacturers have included lifetime warranties on many styles. Above and beyond normal foot traffic, real tiles outlive vinyl as the materials rarely see irreparable damage from moving furniture about or walking a fridge across the floor to put it in the corner. In comparison, vinyl tiles are much easier to damage from various objects of the home.

Repairing - If a floor suffers damage and becomes in need of repair, peel and stick vinyl tile is much easier. Essentially, a razor knife and a new piece of tile can replace the damaged piece without involving chisels or hammers. In less time, you can have that old damaged piece of tile off of the floor and a new one in its place – as long as you have a replacement that matches the others.

Peel and stick tile can be a very cost effective way to provide you with the perfect look you want for a home. However, the strength and durability of real tile can provide a strong argument for reduced problems down the road. Each can be installed while providing an amazing elegance to any area. What it really boils down to is cost and installation time. Do you want a quicker and cheaper installation, or do you want to have long lasting strength and durability?
