Easy Living Homes.

 

Easy Living Homes


If you have family members or friends with physical limitations, you may have areas of your home that they’re unable to visit. This is especially problematic if you yourself become disabled or have a disabled person move in with you. How do you accommodate these needs? By building an EasyLiving Home, of course.

 

According to the EasyLiving Home website, the EasyLiving Home program is “the nation's first voluntary certification program that specifies criteria in everyday construction to add convenience in your new home and to welcome all friends, family and visitors regardless of age, size or physical ability.”

 

The EasyLiving Home program was developed by a coalition of public and private organizations to encourage the voluntary inclusion of key features that make a home cost-effective, accessible, and convenient for everyone without sacrificing style or adding substantial construction costs. EasyLiving Home certification enhances both the initial and resale value of a home and can be achieved for practically any home regardless of price, building site or architecture.

 

EasyLiving Home features: 

  1. Step-free entrances provide easy access and are never more than 1/2" from a driveway, sidewalk, or another firm route into the central living area.
  2. Exterior doors provide and interior passages provide easy passage because all doors and hallways on the main level (including bathrooms) offer ample clear passage space.
  3. Easy use with no less than one bedroom, a kitchen, some entertainment area, and at least one full bathroom with sufficient maneuvering space all on the main floor.

The EasyLiving Home program certifies that homes meet the program requirements through a non-profit coalition of organizations committed to making homes more accessible, including AARP and several access advocacy groups.

While EasyLiving Homes offer a substantial number of special features, virtually any home buyer can afford one because these certified homes are available at all price levels from the most modest starter home to country club estates. The EasyLiving Home program shows builders how to make their homes more convenient by making small improvements that add little or nothing to the cost of new construction but would be very costly to retrofit later.

EasyLiving Homes is all about convenience. By grouping all the most essential living areas on a single floor with ample-sized doors and a step-free entry, the EasyLiving Home allows easy access for bulky furniture and getting around whether you’re on foot or in a wheelchair.

“While you may be in perfect health now,” the website states, “the day may come when you or a family member experience health problems that could cause limited access to be a real problem. Elderly relatives will appreciate the easy access and extra entry width when they visit you in your new EasyLiving Home. And in an aging society, an EasyLiving Home will have a higher resale value when it's time to sell.”

The great debate on paying cash for a house

 




Many investors consider paying all cash for an investment property, and in today’s market, it may feel like everyone is paying all cash.

To be clear, even when investors use terms like “all cash,” the truth is, no “cash” is actually traded. In most cases, the buyer brings a check (usually certified funds, or wire transfer) to the title company, and the title company writes a check to the seller. 

This is the easiest form of financing because there are typically no complications, but for most investors (and probably the vast majority of new investors) all cash is not an option. Let us look at the pro's and con's as our parents taught us on several subjects.

 

Pros:

1. Faster Closings

2. Waiving contingencies

3. Potential price discount

4. Save on mortgage interest and PMI

 

Con's:

1. Tying up your money

2. Losing out on better investments

3. It takes longer to save up

 

All-cash purchases: No mortgage is nice, but there are other expenses you will be responsible for as a homeowner.

1. Property taxes

2. Homeowners insurance

3. Utilities and maintenance

4. HOA fees

Basic wealth generators of rental properties:

1. Cash flow

2. Appreciation

3. Tax savings

4. Loan paydown

 

Liability:

1. Good Chance of being sue for your assets

2.  Disgruntled tenant 

 

Pretend it isn’t an all-cash offer:

1. Don't get Lazy, look for the best deal!

2. Run the numbers as if there was a loan.

3. Use entities wisely

4. Consider financing later

What Size Rug Do I Need for My Living Room?

 

1. Go big

The universal bugaboo seems to be skimpiness.  When a rug is too small, it creates distracting broken space between the rug and the furniture surrounding it, getting the largest size rug a living room can accommodate.

2. Leave some framing floor

Rugs should never touch the wall. We’d call that a carpet. Aim for at least 4 inches of bare flooring from the edge of the rug to the wall. The ideal is 12 to 18 inches.

3. Put furniture on the rug

When placing furniture, most experts fall into one of two camps: 1) All of the furniture needs to be on the rug or 2) just the front legs of each major piece—sofa and accent seating—does.

4. Choose the rug first

“It’s far easier to build a design scheme around a rug than it is to hunt for a rug that miraculously ties a room together,” said Tim Sheridan, brand ambassador for carpet and rug purveyor Stark. If you’re just beginning a room, you might want to heed this advice.



5. Lay some tape

For best results when considering a carpet, break out the yardstick. Take the time to measure and tape out the exact size of the rug on your floor, It might feel like an extra step, but it will make all the difference.
