    Budgeting for a New Home in Harrisburg PA: For many, homeownership is still the dream. Moving from renting to homeownership can seem like it's an impossible mission. But if you plan ahead and carefully budget, the goal of homeownership can be yours. But, you must budget for a new home. When budgeting for a new home, it's important to understand and anticipate the costs of owning and maintaining a home. Here are a few things that some buyers forget to include when budgeting for a new home.

  The Weekend Project in Harrisburg PA: Newly Painted Walls  You don't have to hire a professional painting crew to get a professional paint job! You have all the tips and tools you need to turn dull rooms into beautiful escapes.   First, you must decide what prep work needs to be done to your walls. Walls should be clean and free of holes and blemishes. Spend a little time filling nail holes and any cracks with caulking. This crucial step will make for a clean finished product. Do you have mildew growing on your walls? Use a 1 part bleach to 3 part water solution to wash or scrub the mildewed areas. Rinse away the bleach solution prior to the rest of your prep work and voila you'll have a mildew-free surface. Next, prep the space for the actual act of painting. Remove any furniture or ...

Not only will these upgrades add sentimental value, but they will also increase the financial value of your home.   Inspect Your Windows The largest sources of wasted energy are windows.

Decorate your home with energy saving window treatments and install window insulation film to save energy and prevent heat from escaping your home.     Check Your Heating System Reduce maintenance and utility costs by upgrading your central heating.
