  • Hey guys!

  • It's Ariannita la Gringa

  • and welcome back to my YouTube channel.

  • In today's video, I will teach all of you

  • how to buyhouse in English in the United States.

  • But I'm not by myself

  • I'm with my friend Katherine who's a realtor.

  • So Katherine, what is a realtor?

  • A realtor is the person

  • that is going to help you buy, sell, or rent your house.

  • Katherine is a realtor

  • so she's going to show me

  • around this beautiful model home.

  • Stay till the end of the video

  • because Katherine's going to tell us

  • the price of the house

  • and how much it costs

  • and she's going to explain the steps

  • on how to buy a house in the United States.

  • Katherine, where are we right now?

  • So we are at a model home from Fischer Homes.

  • What is a model home?

  • A model home is a house that builders make

  • for people to be able to see what a home

  • would look like after they build it for them.

  • Okay so basically no one lives here

  • it's brand new, right?

  • Yes.

  • Katherine, now I'm curious to see

  • what this home looks like...

  • Can you show me around this house?

  • Of courseLet's go inside and take a look at it.

  • Before taking a tour inside the house

  • with my friend Katherine

  • I will show you the front part of the house.

  • What is this called that I'm standing on?

  • This is called a driveway (driveway).

  • It's basically like a small road

  • where cars can drive through.

  • You can park your cars on the driveway

  • or in the garage right there.

  • Every house in this neighborhood has this.

  • This is called a mailbox (mailbox).

  • The mailman will open up this mailbox

  • and put the mail inside the box

  • and then you'll have your mail.

  • Before walking inside the house

  • with Katherine, I wanna ask her...

  • Katherine, do you know what this part of the house is called?

  • Well Ari this is called the front porch.

  • This is called the front porch

  • so basically it's a covered outdoor space

  • and normally people will have rocking chairs

  • or just regular chairs

  • where they can hang out in the evening.

  • And then over here before entering the house,

  • there is a doormat (doormat).

  • Outside the front door

  • and next to the front porch

  • Americans normally have a security camera

  • and they have a doorbell.

  • This is a doorbell.

  • Katherine if I ring the doorbell

  • will someone answer the door?

  • Well, there's nobody really here

  • because this is a model home

  • so it's just open we can just go inside.

  • Okay perfect let's go inside!

  • Well, let's start the tour with this room.

  • This room could be used as an office,

  • a dining room,

  • I mean you can do pretty much anything

  • you want to do with this space.

  • In this room, you can find four white chairs.

  • There's also wine glasses,

  • but this is all fake because this is a model home.

  • And there's also a coffee table in this room.

  • Katherine this food is making me really hungry!

  • I know it looks real, doesn't it?

  • Yeah, but it's actually fake.

  • Yeahpeople come here all the time

  • and try to eat it and I'm like yeah no it's not real.

  • Let's continue with the tour.

  • I want to show you what's behind this door over here.

  • Do you know what it could be?

  • I don't know I think it might be a closet...

  • I don't know.

  • Well, it's actually a half bath.

  • Katherine, you just said half bath.

  • What is a half bath?

  • A half bath is a bathroom withoutshower.

  • Basically, there's just a toilet in here,

  • there's a sink and that's it.

  • There's no shower or bathtub

  • so you can't take a bath or a shower.

  • Ari, now I want to show you my favorite

  • part of this home.

  • It is the living room, let's go check it out!

  • Katherine, what can we find in this living room?

  • Well, you can find some really nice furniture.

  • Over here there's these windows

  • that I love and 9-foot ceilings.

  • Can you believe that?

  • Wow!

  • These ceilings are really tall it's really high.

  • And Katherine, if I want to buy this house

  • will it come with all this furniture?

  • No, honestly that won't happen.

  • It usually just comes without anything  on it.

  • They just put the furniture

  • so you can see what it would look like.

  • And that's why this house is called a model home

  • so the clients can see

  • the house full of furniture

  • and it feels like a true home.

  • By the way, if you haven't watched my video

  • about furniture vocabulary

  • go ahead and check it out.

  • I'm in the living room

  • and what kind of things

  • can you find in the living room?

  • Well, right next to me

  • there is a couch or you can call it a sofa.

  • This is a coffee table

  • and the living room is used for relaxing

  • so you can take a nap on the couch,

  • you can also use the living room

  • to entertain your friends and family,

  • you can watch TV.

  • There's a TV stand right here

  • and over here there is a lamp.

  • This is a lamp.

  • So Ari next to the living room

  • you're gonna find the kitchen.

  • And when you buy a home

  • the kitchen comes equipped with some appliances.

  • So one of them is the microwave,

  • you're also gonna have a stove,

  • and a dishwasher.

  • Katherine, so when I buy this house

  • if I want to buy it

  • then it comes with a microwave,

  • a stove,

  • and a dishwasher, right?

  • Yes.

  • But what about the fridge?

  • So the fridge is the only thing

  • that you're not going to have in the home.

  • You have to purchase that on your own.

  • What is a kitchen?

  • A kitchen is a place where you can prepare and cook food.

  • And Katherine, can I actually eat this cake?

  • It looks so delicious!

  • I wish we could.

  • It's just fake, unfortunately.

  • This is a fridge.

  • You can call it a fridge or a refrigerator.

  • And below the fridge, this is a freezer (freezer).

  • Also, if you havekitchen where do you keep your food?

  • Well you can keep your food

  • in the cabinets right here

  • or if it's a big kitchen you might even have a pantry.

  • This is a pantry.

  • And look!

  • There are some Quaker Oats.

  • There's actually food in here.

  • This whole thing is called a stove (stove).

  • This is a stove top

  • where you can cook things on a skillet.

  • For example, you can cook up some pancakes.

  • These are pancakes, but they're fake

  • so I'm not going to eat them.

  • And then
