HOUSE HAUNTING: FIRST STEPS

I have a real love for real estate and I know that I'm in good company

Maybe you've just decide that is time to buy your first home but isn't an easy affair, let me explain better...there are things that is better to know BEFORE fix first appoitments with realtors.

First of all ask to yourself which kind of property are you looking for: apartment, studio, loft, attic, villa, townhouse? Where (centre, country)? What your ideal house must to have (balcony, terrace, garage, large rooms, big kitchen, etc. etc.).... then start to see websites and take notes about prices but don't book appointments yet...

Call your bank and fix an appointment to talk about mortage, most banks offer great mortages to their clients, this means that you must to have all your finanncial docuemnts in order (salary, other loans active and if you are a copule that share budget banks needs also financial informations and socuments from your partner)...

Bank will say if you are aoìpproved or not for mortage and you know from the beginning your max limit...now you can start to fix appointments, start a new reasearch on the web, maybe more detailed, there are a lot of sites that has a lot of filters for great researches and results..

When you talk with realtor, PLEASE be honest about your budget because realtor's work is find best deal for both parts (homeowner/client), is waste of time for both visit house that are over the budget, maybe you fall in love and you know that you cannot afford and let me remember that most realtor's salary is based on commission and his/her work is find perfect deal for you without broke budget and visit homes tha tyou cannot afford is seriously stressful!

Ok being honest at 100% most realtors tend to push to make an offer ASAP, I never did it because in my personal opinion a good realtor must to support and help don't force, if you loved everything in the home you can make an offer but if there is something that soesn't convince you is better wait a couple of days....Good realtor hels to find perfect deal for you. 

Price is almost always negotiable but usually has a 20%, sometimes a little bit more, As I wrote in this post  I had a client that felt in love at first sight with a tiny appartment and make an offer after second visit, first offer was at 56000, while homeowner was asking €67000, in the end of negotiation we found a del for €59000, Both parts happy and I've done a good work....infact I'm still in touch with boths.

What a good realtor would must to do? Call you back asking what you liked and disliked about home-homes you visited together, call when you have new listings that could be a good deal, became a friend but not became to friendly...

Ok you found your house after several visits with same realtors (usually an average of 6), what is next move? MAke an OFFER

JOB INTERVIEW OUTFIT: INSPIRATION FROM OLIVIA PALERMO & ELISA D'OSPINA

As I wrote some post ago first time I saw Olivia Palermo into "the city show" I found her nasty and posh but I always admitted that I loved (and I still like a lot) her outfits because she was ans still is always perfect... so if you have just received a phone call for job interview see her outfit searching inspiration (web will help you to find low cost similar clothes but on your budget so bankruptcy isn't an option)...










The other woman that I admire for her style is italian curvy model Elisa D'ospina, she is really beautiful woman and her outfits are perfect, because if you are curvy sometimes isn't so easy to find right outfit for you...

One thing that you must to do during job interview is smile, have a good voice (not too high/low volume/tone), not too much make up, clean hair and I suggest to study the agency so you'll be prepared on questions about their business and wear clean clothes, I can  remember that time that a friend of mine wore her favorite wh…

SANREMO SECONDA SERATA: PARLIAMO DI LOOK

Qest'anno ho deciso di guardarlo ma arrivo ad un certo punto ed il sonno vince però con rai replay vedo quello che mi sono persa e in alcuni casi devo dire meno male...
Iniziamo a parlare del look di Carlo Conti e la scelta migliore rispetto alla prima sera, oddio qualunque giacca scura sarebbe stata meglio di quella "da vecchio" della prima sera....comunque si inizia con le nuove proposte e lo devo dire ho una profonda invidia per i capelli di Marianne Mirage, che ha scelto un look molto bello ed elegante, la canzone è anche molto bella e secondo me avrà successo (e prima l'hanno passata in radio un paio di volte), Francesco Guasti e ok lo devo dire io ho un debole per gli uomini con la barbetta ma qui si esagera però il look non mi dispiace per niente e la canzone...si mi è piaciuta, gran bel timbro vocale il ragazzo, il terzo ad esibirsi è Braschi, giovane carino con la faccia da bravo ragazzo, canzone carina ed orecchiabile ma se devo dire se mi è piaciuta o meno,…
