Last year I went from zero Hatchimals, the it toys of 2017, diligently wasting away my day searching stores and websites. To purchasing and distributing them to many local family and friends as well as new friends I had made through online communities. That is, once I researched and figured out the best way to get my hands on one!
It was mid-October and besides a few odds and ends I hadn’t really given much thought to Christmas and what to get the kids. The commercials started blasting and every toy ad had been distributed and all of a sudden it became perfectly clear what the hot item was going to be; A Hatchimal. A magical bird-mammal mixed creature that after rubbing and patting and loving on it would hatch out of an egg. My oldest desperately wanted one and if she thinks it’s cool, so do all her siblings.
The search had begun, and by the time I realized the kids wanted it; I also quickly realized they were not going to be easy ...

While it's a pretty hot sellers market, there are some savings to be had! We found these 5 Royal Oak homes with recent price reductions ranging from $5k all the way up to $40k!

If any of these look good to you, let us know and we'll set up an in person walk thru for you!

To me, there’s nothing better than a good pop of color, especially something that is on the daring side so you won’t necessarily see it everywhere you turn. Check out the best ways you can add Ultra Violet to your home décor:
~ACCENT CHAIRS + FUNKY SOFAS~
For those that are bold enough to invest in a larger piece of Ultra Violet furniture then an accent chair or sofa is the way to go. It can be translated through so many different styles from modern, to glam, to rustic. Tie it with wood tones or white-spectrum colors to really make the purple stand out.
If you want to add a pop of Ultra Violet into your décor without the big commitment, a rug is an awesome option. You can find some incredible, inexpensive rugs that will give you the 2018 look and will also blend seamlessly with your current furniture. How beau ...

Naturally, as the biggest financial investment of most people lives the home buying process involves many steps, and there are many concerns and questions that I am sure you have.
What is the first step? Do I need an agent? How long is the process?
As I recently purchased my first home, I have asked many of these questions myself. Here is what I found are the most important questions:
Where do I start?
When making an important purchase the first step is always to ask how much can you afford to spend, home buying is no different. The best thing that a first time home buyer can be is informed. To find out all of your options based on your financial situation you need to speak with a lender. This conversation is completely free, and it will let you know more about what you can afford to buy, and the different types of loans you can apply for.
