CURB APPEAL? How to achieve it!!

General

8 Tips for Adding Curb Appeal and Value to Your Home

By: Pat Curry

Here are eight ways to help your home put its best face forward.

Homes with high curb appeal command higher prices and take less time to sell. We’re not talking about replacing vinyl siding with redwood siding; we’re talking about maintenance and beautifying tasks you’d like to live with anyway.

The way your house looks from the street -- attractively landscaped and well-maintained -- can add thousands to its value and cut the time it takes to sell. But which projects pump up curb appeal most? Some spit and polish goes a long way, and so does a dose of color.


Tip #1: Wash Your House’s Face

Don’t Miss These Home Tax Deductions

By: Dona DeZube

Published: December 22, 2014

From mortgage interest to property tax deductions, here are the tax tips you need to get a jump on your returns.

Owning a home can pay off at tax time.  

Take advantage of these homeownership-related tax deductions and strategies to lower your tax bill:

Mortgage Interest Deduction 

One of the neatest deductions itemizing homeowners can take advantage of is the mortgage interest deduction, which you claim on Schedule A. To get the mortgage interest deduction, your mortgage must be secured by your home -- and your home can be a house, trailer, or boat, as long as you can sleep in it, cook in it, and it ...

General

Just had to share this blog from KCM Crew.  Great information and hope you review it!!!

At the end of the year, in every region of the country, hundreds of homeowners have a tough decision to make.

Let’s assume you or someone you know is in this situation and take a closer look at each possibility:

HOME BUYERS - What You Should Tell Your Lender

General

Here is some sound advise that I feel warrants a posting on my website also - 

Written by  on Friday, 02 January 2015 11:06 am

Before you go get a loan to buy a home, there is some preliminary work you need to do and some things you need to know to make the borrowing process easier.

First, you need to choose a lender. Ask family and friends whom they would recommend. Interview more than one lender, preferably a local banker, a mortgage broker, and a lender from a national bank. Ask questions such as how long they've been in business, how long they take to close the average loan, and how much experience they have with loans you're interested in, such as FHA or VA, or a jumb...
