A homebuyer is an interesting person, and perhaps it is easy to understand why.

Each homebuyer is different, yet every property buyer shares a common goal: to acquire a top-notch house at a budget-friendly price. Furthermore, how a homebuyer approaches the property buying journey may dictate how long it takes this individual to accomplish his or her ultimate goal.

So what does it take for a homebuyer to become a homeowner? To find out, let's analyze the homebuyer's perspective and consider three steps that a homebuyer can take to speed up the property buying journey.

1. Know What You Want to Find in Your Dream Residence

No two homebuyers have the same definition of a "dream" residence. As such, it is up to you to define the criteria for your home search, and doing so may help you accelerate the homebuying cycle.

Differentiate between "must-haves" and "wants" before you kick off your home search Ė you'll be glad you did.

"Must-haves" refer to things that you absolutely need from your dream home. Some of the most common must-have home features include a fenced-in backyard or multiple bedrooms.

On the other hand, "wants" are things that you would like to have but can live without. These may include an indoor swimming pool, a spacious basement or other non-essentials.

After you define your dream home must-haves and wants, you can narrow your search for the ideal house. Then, you can move one step closer to transforming your homeownership dream into a reality.

2. Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage

Let's face it Ė every homebuyer wants to acquire an excellent residence, but no one wants to break their budget to purchase a house. Thankfully, you can meet with a variety of banks and credit unions to get pre-approved for a mortgage before you embark on your quest for the ideal house.

Getting pre-approved for a mortgage can be fast and simple. Meet with several lenders, and you can explore all of the mortgage options at your disposal.

Also, don't forget to ask questions about different types of mortgages. This will allow you to become a mortgage expert and select a mortgage that matches your finances perfectly.

3. Collaborate with a Real Estate Agent

As a homebuyer, entering the real estate market can be overwhelming. But with a real estate agent at your side, you can get the support you need to secure a first-rate house at an affordable price, regardless of the current housing market's conditions.

A real estate agent is a housing market professional who will go above and beyond the duty to serve you in any way possible. He or she will set up home showings, keep you up to date about new residences as they become available and negotiate with home sellers on your behalf. Plus, if you ever have homebuying concerns and questions, a real estate agent will be happy to respond to them at any time.

Ready to acquire your dream residence? Now that you understand the homebuyer's perspective, you can take the guesswork out of finding and buying a residence that matches or exceeds your expectations.

Everyone had something ugly in their yard that they want to hide. For many, itís the oversized trash bins that donít really fit in the garage but are big and distracting when left out. Others may have utility boxes that mar your lovely landscaping. In some cases, itís lawn equipment or gardening tools that donít have a place you can tuck them away.

Here are some ideas of ways to hide your ugly stuff and beautify your home.

Trash Bins

If your oversized cans must be outdoors, create a trellis enclosure to surround them. Place pots with climbing plants such as ivy and trumpet vine along the sides so that they grow up and over the trash cans. However, remember to leave enough space for you to open the lids conveniently.

Another option for trash bins is to make a raised planter box that rises above the cans. Plant bright annuals, vegetables, or succulents in the box.

Utility boxes

To cover a utility box, vent pipe, or other smaller eyesore, purchase a faux stone or cluster of rocks to set on the street-side of it. Surround it with flowering plants or small bushes to give it a more pleasing look.

Disguise utility boxes with raised beds and fill them with taller perennials such as Iris or Agapanthus. The beautiful blooms distract from the ugly utility boxes and hide them in plain sight.

Tools

When a full toolshed is not an option, hide your tools in a patio chest. These chests double as extra seating for entertaining and can even hold a small lawnmower if necessary.Or, create a hideaway cabinet under the deck landing. Just wrap the area with siding to match the deck, add access doors and voila, your tools are hidden in an area that looks like it was meant to be there.

Fireplace Logs

When you have a wood-burning fireplace but donít know where to store the logs, build a bench seat similar to a crate and stack the wood under it. Use the bench for extra seating or as a display shelf for your favorite potted plants.

Use two pillars of your patio cover to stack the logs between, but place lattice on the patio side to hide the wood. Hang planters from the trellis to create a walled garden to bring cheery greenery to your patio area while hiding the logs.

Hoses

Hide your hose in a lovely pot situated near to the faucet. Most garden centers and DIY hardware stores offer choices specially designed to keep unruly hoses in check.

Whatever the problem area, you can find a way to keep it hidden from view with a little ingenuity and effort. Doing so improves your homeís curb appeal and increases your enjoyment of your outdoor living space.
