Creating the Home That is Just Right for You

Tips for finding and buying a new home and creating the perfect space wherever you live  

Cornell Women’s Networking Brunch – FREE

Your home is your sanctuary–a place where you can find comfort and security and create favorite memories with family and friends. But sometimes your home environment can fall short of your current needs and desires. Are you searching for ways to update and redecorate your present home or considering a new home purchase? Then CCLA’s upcoming brunch is just for you!

Our panel of design and real estate professionals will provide expert tips for finding and buying a new home and developing your perfect space wherever you live.

Some of the topics to be discussed include how to find a home in an area you can afford, when to consider buying a home that includes an income property, the pros and cons of buying a fixer-upper, using Feng Shui principles to add harmony and balance to your home, how to work with colors, things to consider when buying furniture and accessories for your home.
