Home Layout - Buy a House - Remerica Hometown, REALTORS®

Homes come in all shapes and sizes. There are single-level homes that sprawl out with spacious square footage. There are multi-storied homes with plenty of space between attic and basement for bedrooms, offices, home gyms, and more. There are row homes and four square houses that bring distinctive character to cities and suburbs. But finding the perfect home for your family among Ann Arbor homes for sale will require more than familiarity with differing architectural styles. Assessing your needs will be a crucial first step. 

  • Getting Familiar 
    Consider the needs of everyone who lives in your home. Think of how everyone's needs will change as you grow older, and who will visit you regularly. A family with small children will need to consider which staircases will accommodate safety gates, and which surfaces might resist spills or scuffs as kids grow. Someone who uses the bathroom frequently, especially at night, will appreciate an ensuite bathroom, such as those that come with master bedrooms. Those who have trouble sleeping may appreciate the quiet that split or half levels provide, as the top floor is often solely for bedrooms.

Weekend Curb Appeal Projects - Remerica Hometown Realtors

Do you know how important curb appeal is? If you look at any of our Ann Arbor homes for sale, you'll notice that the best listings often have attractive, presentable exteriors that invite buyers in with their visual appeal. Regardless if you're planning on selling your home soon, or if you're going to enjoy the space for a few more years, our REALTORS® encourage you to make the most of your exterior. Here are five ways that you can boost your curb appeal over a single weekend.

  1. Lighten Up the Space
    Lighting can dramatically increase the aesthetic, visibility, and safety of your property. Simply changing your porch lighting fixtures and replacing old bulbs with LED lights can make your front door shine. You can also install simple ground-mounted lights along the driveway or walkways to the home's front door to provide an illuminated path that is inviting to visitors.
