Many people are starting to swap their cool summer wardrobe for warmer transition layers and that can mean only one thing – autumn is coming! With the first official day of fall this Monday, September 23rd there is no better time to start prepping your home for the change of season. We have listed a few tips and tricks below to help the transition from summer to fall go smoothly. Enjoy! 
 
1. Our first tip in the transition from summer to fall is to swap out your beach scent candles with something warmer and cozier. Walking into a house that smells like autumn and homemade apple pie will automatically put you in the fall mood. 
 
2. Our second tip is to mix in warm colors throughout your home by incorporating vibrant shades of yellow, red and orange in throw pillows, rugs, blankets, candles, vases and/or bedding.
 
3. Our third tip is centered around center pieces! This can be a very budget-friendly way to add a little warmth to your tables, which is usually the center of any home and a gathering place for family and friends. Including seasonal fruits such as pears, apples and clementines, as well as pinecones and other earthy items, can go a long way.
 
4. Our fourth tip is to dress up your front door with a seasonal wreath. This is the perfect way to welcome family and guests and have the entry to your home reflect the fall season. And if you are feeling crafty, you can even DIY and make your own! 
 
5. Our fifth tip, while not as glamourous or artsy, is necessary – prepping your fireplace. Not many things are more welcoming on a crisp, cool day then walking into a home with a crackling warm fire. Be sure to vacuum or sweep the ashes from last year’s cozy nights and have your chimney inspected before frequent use this season.

Tips For First Time Home Buyers In Omaha, NE

by Nancy Heim-berg

It’s true when they say that buying a house is one of the largest financial investments most people will make in their lifetime. With that said, it comes as no surprise when people have a cautious approach to the home buying process and want to gather as much information as possible before they sign on the dotted line. This is especially true for first time home buyers as they navigate the mix of excitement and nerves of owning their first property. 

In today’s blog post we are going to be breaking down a few tips and tricks for first time home buyers in hopes to make the process a little easier and more enjoyable. Let’s dive right in! 

-Get a copy of your credit report to get an understanding of where you stand, and start doing your research to find a reputable mortgage company you want to work with. 

-It is a good idea to get prequalified for your home loan prior to starting the home search so you know what area/homes are in your budget.

-Start putting money aside early for your down payment and closing costs so you are prepared to pull the trigger when you find your dream home. 

-Figure out where you want to live – what neighborhood is best for your family, the school district you want to be in, how far the commute will be for work and what style home fits your taste. 

-Before you settle on your home, make sure to have it checked by a home inspector so there are no surprises down the road.
