It is no surprise that first impressions matter, and with a home, curb appeal is where it is at. Curb appeal at every budget point is a meaningful discussion to have, because who doesnít like pretty things?

Here are a few affordable curb appeal ideas that will work for most types of New England homes.

Go Green

The first thing you will likely think about to enhance curb appeal is adding fresh flowers and greenery. This upgrade can include adding window boxes and planters, which use foliage to bring out critical visual points such as entryways and windows. A hanging planter can be used in place of a standing flower box if space is an issue.

Lawn Care

Back and front yard maintenance is also an essential part of home improvement. A large part of that is lawn care. Pull up creeping weeds, rake away leaves and clip your lawn from time to time- preferably at least once a week. To keep your garden a glistening green, be sure to turn your sprinkler on, especially during summer. If you donít actually have a green thumb, you could opt for artificial turf or shrub beds.

Add a Bit of Door Zest

Rather than a front door that blends in with those of all your neighbors, try one that offers a striking contrast. Cut your expenses by painting the door yourself, as it is not a difficult task (get on YouTube if youíre not a DIY enthusiast). Go for bold colors that contrast tastefully with the homeís exterior theme. There are apps available for virtual color testing as well.

Light it up

Dark entryways are not at all welcoming. For those with a hanging pendant or sconce by the front door, switch it with something more fresh and fun. Clear out all debris and cobwebs around the outdoor fixtures to brighten up that space and give it a clean, inviting ambiance. For additional light sprucing for a walkway, invest in solar-powered lanterns or porch-string lights.

Symmetry is your friend

Symmetrical patterns create focal points, and as such, look pleasing and visually satisfying. Achieve this look by placing matching plants or lanterns on both sides of the front door. The outside of the property can be similarly jazzed up by doing the same on either side of the garage door.

Mailbox Makeover

A stylish mailbox is a relatively easy DIY project that can produce a noticeable but understated difference to a houseís curb appeal. Instead of the conventional wall mountable one, install a stand-alone one for a complete front yard makeover.

Begin collecting plants to spruce up your yard whenever youíre near a gardening store, and take those first steps to spruce up your home's curb appeal.

Securing a mortgage can be quite challenging if you do not meet specific requirements and demands made by the lenders. But really, you canít blame lenders or mortgage companies for setting up these rules. Most of these demands are made to ensure the borrower can repay a loan without too much of a problem.

Everyone has one or several bad habits that have affected them or will affect them one way or another. When it comes to securing mortgage though, some bad habits might interfere with that decision. These habits will cast a shadow over your profile, putting doubts in the mind of the lender. Bad habits like any of the ones listed below will affect your chances of securing a mortgage.

Gambling

Gambling is a terrible financial habit that could also be addictive. Betting away some of your money on rare occasions is not enough to affect your chances of securing a mortgage. Taking out credit or a short-term loan to finance your gambling habit, however, will affect your chances of obtaining a mortgage Ė your gambling habit might also make you default on your credit card repayment.  

Personal Debt

Having substantial private debt will most likely cast doubt on your mortgage request. Lenders would be skeptical about your ability to pay back a new loan. Before you go ahead and apply for a mortgage, pay off all outstanding debts and keep a clean savings profile.

Defaulting on payments

Having a history of defaulting on previous loan repayment will reduce your chances of getting a mortgage. Defaulting is the single worst thing you can do to yourself. Lenders would not want to provide a loan to an individual who has a bad habit of defaulting.

Exceeding Overdraft 

Another bad habit that will cast doubt in the minds of lenders is exceeding your overdraft limit. If you donít have an arranged overdraft limit, contact your bank. If lenders go through your bank statement and find your account messed up irrespective of how much income Is in there, they would probably turn down your application for a mortgage.

Late Credit Payments 

Making a late payment on your credit card and other loans is an excellent way to dig your own grave when requesting for a mortgage. A single late payment can mess up your credit score and would remain on your credit history for as long as seven years. 

If you are guilty of any of these habits and intend to secure a mortgage, you need to have a clear record first before proceeding with your application for a loan. If you are worried about whether you will qualify for a mortgage, talk to your real estate agent about your options and use prequalification forms to determine your likely approval.
