One corner of the room can be designated as the living area; one corner is the kitchen while the rest is for the bedroom or dining area. Also, you can use partial walls or dividers to separate these different areas.

Condominium Unit

A condominium or condo unit is a single, individually-owned housing unit in a multi-unit building.

The unit owner pays property taxes only for his or her unit and is also entitled to pay for the mortgage, rent, or sell it just like any other personal property. It is normally smaller than any other house properties but can provide the maximum space needed by small families.

With over 30 years of experience, Emma has gotten to where she is, not just due to her skills, but also due to her dedication and positive outlook in life.

Most real estate companies focus their efforts on big developments that will rake in the most profit.

Six Simple House Maintenance Hacks

BLOG BANNER 1

Home repairs can be a tedious and sometimes even an expensive job especially when you need to hire a professional to get the job done for you. They can also be complicated and intimidating when you think about doing it yourself, plus there is always the fear of doing even further damage when you try to repair something on your own.

However, there are some repair jobs that you can surely do for yourself. Having a home maintenance plan and knowing the basics of home repair can save you a lot of time and money. Here are 6 simple Home maintenance hacks that you can surely DIY.

Bathroom/ Toilet Repairs

Water leakage in the bathroom will not only cost you a high water bill, but it can also cause water damage to your bathroom floor. If you are suspecting a water leakage in your bathroom, the first thing you can do is to add red food coloring in your toilet tank. In this way, you will be able to see if water is spilling out of it. If there is red water coming out of places it shouldn’t be, then you have a water leakage. The best thing to do is to replace the old washer with a new one.

Plumbing

One of the most commonly recurring household issues is Drainage clogging. This is because fats and oils from the food we cook and eat accumulate in the drains. If you have a clogged drain, all you need to do is pour boiling hot water and dishwashing soap onto the drainage so it may emulsify the oil and unclogging the drains.

Air conditioning

Aircons are one of the costly appliances to do a repair on that’s why it’s also one of the most overlooked appliances to have checked. Regularly inspect the condensation hose to make sure that water can flow freely. Always make sure the screen or aircon filter is free from dirt and dust so that air will keep flowing easily.

Refrigerators

If your refrigerator has black coils on the back, make sure you clean that area regularly to avoid dust build. The coils are the ones that keep the food inside the fridge cold, and if they are dirty, they will not work efficiently and may stop cooling altogether.

Doors and Hinges

Getting annoyed by squeaky doors and noisy hinges? Try using a cooking spray to put on a little slip on the hinges so they will stop making any noise.

Cleaning out the carpet

No matter how careful we get, there will always be dirt lying around or on our carpet. Use a squeegee to remove hair or dirt from a carpet. You’ll be surprised at how good a squeegee is at doing this job.
