Ideas To Spice Up Your Life In 2016


New Year? 2016 has a lot of potential, but like me you probably won’t visit the gym more than twice. So, instead of buying a month of gym membership you won’t use how about change up your home to really feel like you’ve impacted your lifestyle.

The easiest way to do this would be to change your furniture. There are plenty of new designs and styles 2016 has waiting for you. Most of these are going to be minimalist, with some sort of rustic chic. Every home has a different taste and a different look, so do a little research and you’ll find out pretty quickly what style suits your home. Maybe you’ve been itching for a new couch or new kitchen table. Well now you have an excuse.

You could also paint your walls a different color. Changing the colors of your home has a huge impact on you whether you realize it or not. Check out a post I posted a few weeks ago if you’re interested: New Colors for Your Old Room.

Renting? You could move out of that tiny rented apartment and maybe move up to a spacious home. Look at your budget, if you can get away with spending less than a third of your take home money on a new house for rent, go for it! It’d be a great way to start off the year. Your friends will love it, and so will you.

OR You could also just buy a new house! There are plenty of new rules and regulations in 2016 that allow borrowers to get a mortgage loan much easier. So why not? If you’re thinking about it its best to keep more than a few things in mind. First off you’re going to need a real estate agent. Why? Well having your own real estate agent allows you to keep from doing paper work, lots of paperwork. An agent also knows the ins and outs of the business, allowing you to find better house quicker and even arrange tours. Having your own agent as a buyer and a seller will also save you from being swindled by other people taking advantage of unwary ignorance. Secondly, be pre-approved by a lender, like National One Mortgage (shameless plug). Not only will you know how much money you can spend, but it will also help you significantly speed up the overall process. This information will also impress your seller, as he or she will know you can actually pay for the home, making it easier to decide between your offer and someone else’s. This will allow you to shop in your price range which is important! New Year does not mean new unpayable debts. Only buy what you can pay for.  Also learn to be flexible. If you’re the wound up type of person it’s not going to help your search. Rarely are you going to find the perfect home. Sometimes you’ll get more for your money if you buy an older home that needs a little work. Look past the ugly wallpaper and dirty carpet, remember that can be changed, and visualize your trendy new 2016 finishes.

What next year holds is only somewhat of a mystery the rest is up to you! “New year, new you” requires you. If you’re interested in a new house whether rent or for purchase don’t hesitate to call National Realty Group at (800) 406-9606, visit us at or stop by our office. All the agents and staff at National Realty Group would like to wish you a Happy New Year, and wish you the best during 2016.


About National Realty Group

National Realty Group was founded in October 1991 by Jeff Maas. It started as a two man office but soon grew to a medium sized office. One of the original agents formed a new home development company soon after. Steven Walker Homes is now a large national home builder. Southfork Mortgage Company Corp. was founded in April 1990 by the owner of a large home builder. Jeff Maas stepped in as its Broker in September 1993. With the help of Jeff Evens, Jeff Maas was able to expand the company. In July 1994, the owner of Southfork retired and Jeff Maas and Jeff Evens purchased the company. They continued the growth and soon built it into a multi-million dollar corporation. National Realty Group remained separate until Jeff Maas sold it to Southfork Mortgage in 1996. This allowed the owners to expand National Realty Group while allowing its agents to provide mortgage services to their clients. In 1996, a branch office of Southfork and NRG was opened in San Bernardino. It was later moved to Redlands in the most well-known office in the city. In 1998, they opened an office in Temecula in the Temecula Valley Bank office. The offices were expanded and closed 45 million in real estate and loan transactions in 1998. In 1999, Jeff Maas purchased the company from Jeff Evens becoming sole owner and broker. Shortly after the name was changed to National One Mortgage Corp. The company outgrew its 3000 square foot office in Riversideand moved to a building of approximately 6000 square feet. The growth continued at a spectacular rate. The company grew to over 40 agents within one year. The expansion continued with the addition of 2800 square feet and later adding more space for a combined total of nearly 13,000 square feet. At our peak we had over 125 agents and 12 employees in the Riverside office alone. During the summer of 2003, we opened an office in Temecula at the corner of Rancho California and Margarita. This office was soon bursting at the seams with 42 agents and 3 full time employees. Due to the increased demand for our unique programs, by the public and real estate agents, offices were opened in Corona and Ontario in early 2005. The year saw more amazing growth with offices opening in Moreno Valley, Hemet, Las Vegas and Norco. Rancho Cucamonga and Phoenix opened the first part of 2006. A Murrieta office opened summer of 2007. The economy has not been kind to many real estate and mortgage companies. We have remained strong and successful. Our business model of a One-Stop Shop provides the exact service and convenience the Home-Buying public desires and needs.
