If you are working from home or considering starting a new business at home, a home office is going to be very important for what you do. But you don’t necessarily have to break your budget to create your own home office, using what you have on hand, you can come up with something that is functional and effective for you.

  • Take advantage of sunlight. Place your desk and chair in front of a window and watch your creativity blossom. You are probably going to spend a large chunk of your time here, so you want to be as comfortable as possible. The window view also gives you an opportunity to take in the view every other minute and reduce eye fatigue.
  • Paint the walls. Don’t just paint the walls, paint them a color that really suits you. What kind of color suits your style and will increase your productivity? 
  • Find a comfortable chair. That goes without saying. Don't sacrifice form for function. The chair design you saw on Pinterest may look especially great in photographs but may be bad for your back with long term usage. You want to make sure that you have a chair that is ergonomically correct
  • Add indoor plants. For some reason, plants make the atmosphere of any room feel better, so you should add some greenery to make the office more comfortable for you. Look out for plants that you don't have to water every day, that way nothing becomes lost in your absence.
  • Add personal touches. Frame up some of your favorite quotes for the wall, or place pictures of your family on your work desk. Make it as personal as possible, so it reflects you and your style in every way. Choose accessories that will add to the feeling of comfort you want to recreate.
  • Use space efficiently. You are probably not going to have as much space as a regular corporate office, so you should aim to utilize every available space. Use floating shelves to keep papers and office equipment away from your desk. You can get a bin to hold all your working files and to-do lists instead.Whatever intentions you had for setting up your office at home, make sure it’s something more than a regular chair and table set up in the guest bedroom. You want to be as comfortable, and at ease, as you can. Visit your local home improvement store for bargains on items that you may need.

Buying a home is a huge deal. First-time buyers transform from renters to owners in a single transaction, a change that has far-reaching implications about how you see yourself. 

Being an owner grounds you in your community.
When you buy a home, you create deep community connections in a way renting never can. After all, when you’re a renter, your relationship to the actual property and structure are less personal. You don’t own it, so if something goes wrong, you call the landlord—the owner—to make repairs. If the wind blows shingles off it is the owner’s insurance that handles getting a new roof. When a natural disaster strikes you know someone else will take care of it.

Now, as the owner, all these things are yours to manage. When you live in the property that you own, you are your own landlord. You’re the property manager in charge of repairs. The buck stops with you! 

Don’t let all that responsibility deter you, though. It is that very sense of duty that creates pride of ownership. While your home doesn’t define you, it does represent you in the neighborhood and to your community. And with the responsibility come all the rights of ownership as well. 

Every payment you make toward your mortgage principle adds value—equity—to your home. Each time you maintain your home and yard, you’re helping it retain that equity. As a renter, your payment went to the owner’s equity. So, if you make improvements to your home, and continue to pay toward the principle, that equity accrues to you. 

Equity increases when the community or neighborhood becomes more desirable so that the fair-market value goes up. Increases due to economic growth and demand add up to more value for you … instead of an increase in your rent payment that goes to a landlord.

Being an owner helps your bottom line in other ways too.
The most predictable thing about renting is that rent will go up. That means any increase you might get to your wages or salary must go toward rent rather than something else you’d like to have. If you have a fixed mortgage, the basic cost of your housing remains the same year over year. When you receive that cost of living adjustment or new position with a bump to your income, you can spend it on improvements to your home to further increase its value, pay off some other debt, or spend it on something else entirely. It gives you choices.

Because you appreciate your property, it appreciates in value.

If you've never owned a home and would like to explore the possibility, start by contacting a real estate agent and get the conversation started.
