Tips to Begin the Search for Your New Home

Categories: DanRic News, Design Tips, DIY Tips & Tricks, Home Buying FAQ, New Homes | Posted: February 17, 2012 | Comments Off on Tips to Begin the Search for Your New Home

If you’re here, you are already ahead of the game in beginning your search for new homes for sale in LaGrange, GA! Beginning your search online with DanRic Homes will help you discover what you’re looking for, narrow down your choices, schedule tours and be standing at the threshold of your dream home in no time. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

Know what you need. Make a list of the features you want in your new home. This may include everything from number of bedrooms and bathrooms to hardwood floors and granite countertops. Just be sure to separate your needs from your wants. This will help you be realistic and remain open-minded when comparing your choices and touring homes for sale in LaGrange, GA.

Consider your investment. Take a moment before you dive-in to get your finances in order. Meet with a mortgage professional to review what you are comfortable with investing and get pre-qualified. They can recommend loan programs you may not be aware of or even offer suggestions to help improve your credit score while you’re searching for your new home.

Use search tools. DanRic Homes can send you information about homes that suit your specific needs when you complete their online request. There are also multiple mobile applications you can use while you’re on the go to find available homes or directions. While touring homes for sale in LaGrange, GA you can even locate restaurants, shopping centers, schools, and entertainment near you with apps like AroundMe!

Here’s one final tip as you begin your search; studies actually show that your memory improves after consuming carbs versus slowing down when consuming sugar. So enjoy some pasta and avoid dessert before heading out to tour homes and you’ll be sure to remember the beautiful features and amenities of each home you see!

DanRic Homes is excited you’re beginning your search here. You can easily search our website to view neighborhoods, maps, photos, and floor plans then bookmark your favorites. We’re positive you will find what you’re looking for among our choices of affordable, craftsman-style, traditional-style and woman-centric homes!

Easy Holiday Party Tips and Ideas

Categories: Auburn AL, DanRic News, Design Tips, Holidays, Special Occasions, Things to Do | Posted: December 13, 2011 | Comments Off on Easy Holiday Party Tips and Ideas

What a better way to show off your new home in Auburn, AL than by hosting a holiday party? Don’t worry, no need to spend the rest of your furniture budget on caviar and champagne. Your friends will come because they want to see your new place and they’ll be impressed because of the thought you put into your gathering, not the money.

Here are a few ideas to jazz up the ordinary and help make an impression without spending a fortune:

Fill glass votives with a dollop of dip and place in a couple of carrot sticks, cucumber or zucchini slices on the rim (like lemon) and you’ve got cocktail veggies! If you don’t have enough glass votives, consider juice glasses or even the clear plastic ones.

Use martini glasses for green salads, fruit, soup or even loaded mashed potatoes. It’s simple to carry around, easily holds your spoon or fork and just feels elegant!

If you’re providing drinks, look for a festive cocktail or punch recipe to feature rather than endless options. It will stretch your beverage budget but still offer the spirit you’re looking for to celebrate in your new home in Auburn, AL.

Buying paper and plastic often add to the cost of your party, all the while cheapening the atmosphere. Don’t worry about matching dinnerware; pull out everything you have and mix and match. You can even ask a close friend to bring extra plates or glasses if you’re a few short. This works especially great if you’re keeping with passed hors d’oeuvres or a buffet style.

Maybe you’re still looking for a festive holiday theme or creative way to celebrate with friends in your new home in Auburn, AL? Choose from these theme ideas and your friends will be talking about your get-together well into the New Year:

Pinterest Party – Every guest brings the materials or ingredients for an idea they’ve found on Pinterest and you spend the evening creating them together. From cocktails to crafts & desserts, if you have an assortment there’s no way this party won’t be great.

Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree Party – everyone comes dressed as a rock star and karaoke can only make this party better!

Tacky Christmas Sweater Party – wear the tackiest Christmas sweater you can find complete with accessories, elf shoes and definitely a group photo.

Just remember, your friends will enjoy spending time together to celebrate the season. Whether you go all out or stick with wine and cheese, opening your new home in Auburn, AL to host friends and family will be a memory you’ll have forever!

Chic Dining Room Designs and Styles

Categories: Auburn AL, DanRic News, Design Tips, Design Trends, DIY Tips & Tricks, Opelika AL | Posted: November 7, 2011 | Comments Off on Chic Dining Room Designs and Styles

Forget the days of your dining room being a space holder in your house. If you only use this space for occasional dinner guests or wrapping Christmas gifts, it’s time for transformation! Better yet, pack away that old dining room all together and unwrap your new style in one of Danric Homeshouses for sale in LaGrange, GA.

To create a chic dining room in your home consider updates and customization in four main categories; Walls, Lighting, Seating, and Décor. Here are a few tips on getting started:

Walls: You don’t have to paint your entire room, add a custom stencil in the middle of one wall, your ceiling or inside a frame. Use leftover paint from another room to add a horizontal stripe or an accent wall. If you are moving in one of our new houses for sale in LaGrange, GA, choose your paint colors in our Design Studio. Believe it or not, wallpaper is trendy again! Find wallpaper that reflects your personal style with damask print or unique graphics.

Lighting: This can be a one-step way to dramatically change the style in your room. Placing an eye-catching chandelier, adding modern, industrial style fixtures or simply attaching ribbon to an existing drum shade can transform your dining room from stagnant to stylish overnight! Consider this while touring houses for sale in LaGrange, GA. Newer homes may have the updated look you’re after without any additional work needed!

Seating: Here’s your chance to recreate the ambiance of your favorite café or classy bistro…and it doesn’t have to be expensive! Bring in that color or print you’ve been admiring with fabric by adding slip covers, accent pillows, or recovering seat cushions. Your chairs do not even need to match; paint mix and match seating with the same color, add a bench, or wingback chair. Eclectic, cozy seating can create a room you can’t wait to dine in!

Décor: The trend now ranges from larger-than-life to sleek and trim. That being said, you’ve got room to play! Try oversized prints, frames, and mirrors with sleeker center pieces like tea lights, votives, or miniature glass vases with single-stem flowers.  This is also a great opportunity to display things you love like your dishes, a treasured collection or original artwork. Display them in odd numbers like 3, 5, or 7. Turn empty shelves, bare buffets or vast wall space into the center of attention.

Maybe you are looking at houses for sale in LaGrange, GA or perhaps you are just staring into your own abandoned dining room. Either way, the tips above will help you create the perfect, chic room you’ll return to time and again. Come visit our homes and see what new design features Danric Homes has to offer.
