Remember the last time you visited an upscale furniture showroom? The furniture and fixtures on display probably looked great. The colours and textures jumped out at you. It was a feast for the eyes!
There is a good reason for this: lighting.
When you make or receive an offer to buy a property, it's important that you read and understand every clause. It is especially important to understand any conditions or any changes that are made to the standard offer.
Even homeowners who have moved a few times can be intimidated by the real estate market in general, and the buying and selling process in particular.
First of all, making a decision to sell your home can be difficult. There are so many questions, such as:
What's one of the most important rooms in your home? When it comes to selling your property quickly, and for the best price, the answer is clearly the kitchen. In fact, one of the most common explanations a particular buyer gives for not making an offer is, "I liked the house, but I wasn't too keen on the kitchen."
If you've played the game Monopoly then you've probably picked up the Chance card that reads, "Take a walk on the Boardwalk. If you pass Go..."

• A notepad, so you can take notes.
• Measurements of your largest pieces of furniture, so you can confirm
they'll fit in the rooms of properties you like.
When it comes to home security, most homeowners think about door locks
and alarms. These are, of course, very important. However, there is also a
lot you can do around your property to prevent the possibility of a break-in.
One important part of home security is outdoor lighting. Your home doesn't
need to be lit up like a baseball diamond at night, but your exterior lighting
should illuminate your yard enough to be a deterrent to burglars.
Some burglars hide around the property and wait for someone to arrive and
When you see a new home you like on the market, it's easy to get distracted
by all the features you love – the wrap-around backyard deck or the
spacious rec room with plenty of space for entertaining. You just need to

maintenance issues that could be just around the corner.
Nothing lasts forever. The major components of every home – from the
furnace to the roof shingles – need to be replaced eventually. Knowing
