5 Stress-Free Moving Tips

Moving is a stressful experience that everyone talks about, so it’s important to prepare before it becomes overwhelming. Making the transition from one home to another is a major change, but luckily there are things you can do to make it easier for yourself.

Here’s 5 stress-free moving tips to use now:

Take your time. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to organize and complete your to-do list. Create a full checklist to simplify the process of packing and unpacking. Don’t leave everything to the last minute! The earlier you start, the better.

Be flexible.
It’s important to prepare for potential obstacles and understand that not everything is promised to be smooth sailing. Keep stress levels down by having a backup plan and a list of things to do as soon as possible to give yourself breathing room.

Create a document box.
Afraid of losing important documents? From insurance papers and passports, it’s a good idea to keep your files secure. Place them somewhere you will not lose them and create electronic copies by scanning them to your computer.

Pack a moving day survival kit. Prepare before your actual moving date. Pack all the essential items that will help your family get through the long day. Consider bringing toiletries, trash bags, and phone chargers.

Visit your new area. If you’re moving to an unfamiliar location, visit the town and walk around to get comfortable with your surroundings. This can help make the process less overwhelming - not to mention make you feel more settled in your new neighborhood!

Copper Square is here to help make the process of moving as seamless as possible. Our luxurious townhomes are located in the heart of a safe and growing community so you feel right at home from the moment you visit! Our Models, Design Studio & Sales Center are now open.

5 Advantages of Buying vs. Renting

Like many first-time home buyers, you may be having some reservations. Listening to the thoughts of your family and friends can be overwhelming - is buying a home the right move for you? Take a deep breath - we're here to help. The more you know about the advantages to owning your own home, the more comfortable you'll probably feel about making the big decision!

Here’s 5 advantages of buying vs. renting:
 Build Equity. Mortgage is a word not many people like hearing. But paying a mortgage means you can increase your degree of ownership in your home with each payment.

Submit more tax deductions.
As a homeowner, you can deduct your mortgage interest and property taxes - one bonus renters don’t get! And those who work from home may be eligible for deductions from their home office and portions of utilities.

Have creative control.
Want to change up the lighting in your home or add new appliances? Maybe you prefer a bold new wall color. When a house is yours, you have the ability to customize it to your liking.

Maintenance Choices. Another great advantage to owning a home is that you get to decide whether you want to pick your own contractor or tackle the maintenance yourself. Renters don’t have the same luxury as they need to answer to their landlords.

Pride of ownership.
Looking for the traditional American Dream? It’s not for everyone, but there’s something special about having your own home - you can call it your own.

Now that you’re ready to purchase your very own place, call Copper Square today so we can help you find the perfect place to call home.We offer luxurious townhomes to suite your personal lifestyle. Our Models, Design Studio & Sales Center are now open. Call today at (203)778-4800 or visit our website for more information.

4 Quick Tips to Buying a Home this Spring

With spring in bloom, you may be asking yourself, "Is now a good time to buy a home?" There is good news - according to the National Association of REALTORS, most homeowners sell their homes between the months of April and July. Before you dive into house hunting, it’s important to do a little planning.

Here are 4 quick tips on fine-tuning your wish list so that you can start looking now!

Set the budget. Don't look for something astronomical. Rule of thumb is to “keep your mortgage payment to 25% of your monthly take-home pay”. Maintenance and repair costs can add up quickly, so keep that in mind.

Make a list of features. What is on your must-have list? Jot down the home-features that will be a good investment down the road. Remember that you may not be able to get everything on your wish list - priority is key.

Location. What neighborhoods are you fond of? Zone in on the type of living environment you can envision yourself in. Once you’ve narrowed down your search, hunting for a house will be a bit easier.

Visit open houses.
Make sure you are happy with what you may be purchasing. Open houses are a great opportunity to see if your wish list lines up with your budget. You need to be content with your purchase while staying realistic.

If you’re looking for a new home this season, take a moment to check out Copper Square. With our state of the art amenities, incomparable location, options for every budget, and maintenance free living - we offer a luxurious and convenient lifestyle.

A Seamless Transition to Living with a Sweetheart

Looking for that first place to call home with your significant other? There may be some challenges that you will face during this transition, but facing them head-on can make for a seamless transition. Here are a few tips that can make the both of you happier in the long run.

Copper Square, Young Couple Buying Home

Lay out your expectations. Understanding each other’s daily routines and lifestyle norms can ease the transition of living with your significant other. It’s important to be vocal about what you’re willing to give up and what you simply can’t live without. When you know what to expect from each other, you will know how to accommodate both of your needs.

Make Compromises. Now that you've laid out your expectations, you will need to make compromises. If you’ve lived on your own for a while, you’re going to have to make a sacrifice–even little ones can make a big difference. Making accommodations isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it’s one of the most successful ways to seamlessly transition into your new living situation.

Communicate. You've heard it said 100 times. “Communication is key.” This couldn’t be truer when it comes to living with your sweetheart. Knowing how to support each other during stressful times is essential to creating a stress-free home. Sometimes one small gesture is all it takes.

Embrace each other’s habits. Especially the quirky ones. A daily habit like tucking in the corners of the bed sheets may make you roll your eyes, but having a neat looking bed to come home to after a long day can be a perk of living together. If you both find yourselves binging on TV shows, try finding a new one to watch together.

Maintain a balanced lifestyle. Maintaining a balance between your life as a couple and your individual life is crucial advice for living with your sweetheart. Respecting your relationships with others as well as your romantic relationship is a challenging commitment, but a rewarding one.

If you've already talked it out and agree that now is the perfect time to move in together, why not consider Copper Square? Our Models, Design Studio & Sales Center are now open. Call today at (203)778-4800 or visit our website for more information.
