When you have kids, the dynamics of your home change. You often go from refined to durable. If we looked at flooring from a simply practical standpoint, weíd end up with uncomfortable flooring's like ceramic, laminate, or engineered wood. Thatís why carpets come in handy.  


For one, children spend a lot of time playing on the floor. When you put down a carpet and there are children around, you fully expect that there will be spills, blood, and much roughing around done right on the surface. So, youíll need to choose your fibers carefully when picking a carpet out. 


Know that polyester, nylon, and triexta are among the most durable types of fibers. Stay away from wool carpets, as they are really not the best choice for homes with children. Polyester (also known as PET), is a budget friendly, and environmentally friendly type of carpet that provides stain resistance and a long life. Nylon is known for durability and softness. This is another material thatís great if you want a carpet with a long life. Triexta is a unique fiber that provides the highest amount of stain resistance and really will be soil-free. 


Modular Carpeting


There is another option when it comes to carpeting and that is modular carpeting. This type of carpeting can be laid out in the form of tiles. If a piece is soiled, stained, or ripped, youíll be able to just switch out that piece of the carpeting puzzle if it canít be cleaned. This is an option for homes with children, however, itís not a popular choice in residential settings. Generally, modular carpeting is used in commercial settings like office buildings, and indoor public places like shopping malls. This can be a good option for you depending on the size of your home and your needs. If you have a room thatís completely dedicated to children, like a playroom, for example, you could use a modular carpet.


Treating The Carpets


There is an option to have your carpets pre-treated with a Scotchgard like chemical. This is also available for your furniture. It helps to prevent your furniture and carpets from stains and soiling, surrounding each fiber for a total protection. Once a fiber is treated, it will never wash or wear off. Itís a good option to treat your home with this especially when you have children.


Whether you decide to do wall-to-wall carpeting or simply place some area rugs around in order to make the floors of your home more durable and comfortable for children, you have some options to take the curse off of the inevitable mess that children will make.

  • Wide screen television - If you're an avid television watcher, you might appreciate this gift most. A high definition,wide screen television saves you more than one hundred dollars.
  • Cookware and dishes - Receive a full set of dishes as a house warming gift and you'll be ready to enjoy a delicious meal as soon as you step inside your home.

  • Artwork - Custom paintings, picture frames and table centerpieces beautify your home. Artwork also adds personality to your home. These types of gifts create lasting memories that remind you of great friends and relatives and how much they love you each time you happen upon the gifts.
  • Gift cards - You'll have the finances to buy unique gifts for your new home if you receive gift cards.

Want to sell your house? You're not alone, as many home sellers across the country will allocate significant time and resources to ensure that their properties stand out from the competition.

Ultimately, the steps you take before you list your residence may dictate homebuyers' interest in your house. And if you prepare your home accordingly, you may be able to streamline the home selling process.

So what does it take to get your house ready for the real estate market? Here are three steps that every home seller should follow.

1. Remove Clutter

Clutter is an eyesore that home sellers can live without. Thus, you'll want to spend some time getting rid of clutter before you add your house to the real estate market. Because if you don't, you risk alienating potential homebuyers as soon as they enter your house.

To de-clutter effectively, place any personal belongings in storage. This will allow you to free up space quickly and effortlessly.

Also, if you need to de-clutter in a hurry, you may want to consider hosting a garage sale. By doing so, you can sell excess items for a quick profit.

2. Clean Up Your Living Space

A clean home is a beautiful home, and a beautiful home is one that is ready to sell. Therefore, cleaning up your living space can make a world of difference in a competitive housing market, especially for those who want to accelerate the home selling process.

When it comes to cleaning your living space, go above and beyond the call of duty. Mop the floors, wipe down the walls and ensure that your house looks great inside and out.

Remember, you only get one chance to make a first impression. But if you dedicate the necessary time and resources to clean up your living space, you should have no trouble generating substantial interest in your home as soon as it hits the real estate market.

3. Hire a Real Estate Agent

Let's face it Ė selling a home can be stressful. Lucky for you, real estate agents are available to help you alleviate stress and take the guesswork out of listing your residence.

An experienced real estate agent understands what it takes to sell a house in any real estate market, at any time. This real estate professional will promote your home to the right groups of homebuyers, set up home showings and host open houses. Plus, he or she will go the extra mile to help you maximize the value of your residence.

Perhaps best of all, a real estate agent is a housing market expert. This professional will be able to keep you up to date about any offers on your home and provide recommendations and insights throughout the home selling process. Also, if you ever have questions about selling your home, your real estate agent will be happy to address your queries at any time.

Employ a real estate agent to help you sell your home, and you can get the most out of your home selling experience.

Itís true. Some friends are closer than relatives. Friends support you while youíre navigating through your lifeís toughest challenges. Theyíre the people you invite to your birthday parties, graduations, baby showers, holiday celebrations and weddings. Youíd be hard pressed to think of a lot of times when your best friends werenít either present or among the first people that you called and told about the experiences. So, itís not surprising that a friend has asked if they can move in with you. But, how should you respond?

Get real with yourself before you let a friend move into your house

State laws govern how long someone must live with you before they are considered to be a legal resident. One thing that can cause someone to be viewed as a legal resident at your house is whether or not the person receives personal mail at your address. Check with your local government before you tell a friend that itís okay for her to move in with you.

Ask your friend about his sleeping habits. If your friend works from home, find out what his work hours are? For example, does your friend start working at five oíclock in the morning or does your friend stay in bed until noon?

If your friend played music loudly during your younger years, factor that into your decision. You may have changed and now turn your music down. But, that doesnít mean that your friend listens to her music at a reasonable volume.

Think back to how your friend behaved around pets. This is a must if you have pets. Your friend moving into your house may not work if your friend is afraid of the type of pet that you have. For example, some people are afraid of dogs. Other people are afraid of cats, perceiving cats to be too mysterious.

Deciding to let a friend move into your house might not be a good idea

Discuss your friend moving into your house with your children. If a lot of time has passed since you last spent an extended period of time with your friend in person, hang out with your friend around children. Observe how your friend responds to children, especially when children are upset or impatient.

It goes without saying that you need to discuss your friend moving into your home with your spouse before you give your friend the green light. Let your spouse express her views about the move free of pressure. Donít try to sell your spouse on the move. After all, your spouse could raise important issues about your friend moving into your home that you hadnít thought about.

If a friend moves in with you, it could change your entire relationship with that friend. Youíll learn about each otherís habits, including your cleanliness, sleeping and work habits. Youíll also gain insight into each otherís hidden, personal struggles.In a way, itís similar to getting married. Think about the pros and cons associated with living with someone before you give your friend a set of keys to your house. It could save your friendship.
