Guide to

BUYING A HOME by the Tallahassee Builders Association

If you are thinking of buying a new home, you must pay close attention to many details to ensure that you find one that will suit your needs and preferences. Before you start shopping, you should sit down with the members of your household to discuss your preferences and the many options available to you. Here are some things you should consider

1

STEP

1

FINANCING YOUR HOME

The first step in the home buying process is determining how much you can affo d. To ensure that the financing process goes smoothly, buyers should consider pre-qualifying for a mortgage and having a finan ing commitment in place before shopping for a new home. Speaking to a local lender in advance to house hunting allows you to get pre-approved so that when the buyer to finds their dream house they can work with their Realtor on writing an offer

2

PRIORITIZING MOST-WANTED FEATURES

Before you start shopping, you should sit down with the members of your household to discuss your preferences and the many options available to you. An easy way to organize your thoughts is to write each separate feature that you want on a 3X5 card, and arrange the cards in order of their importance to you. For instance, if you like to cook, you may want a home with a large, well-equipped kitchen. Or you may settle for a small kitchen, so that you can have extra space for a library, offic or playroom. While looking for a home, consider whether your needs are likely to change over time. If you plan to add rooms, find out if there is enough space on your site for such expansion and whether such additions are permitted by your local jurisdiction. Calling a professional remodeler prior to purchasing an existing home enables you to make purchasing decisions based on your current and future needs. To locate a professional remodeler in Tallahassee, visit www.tallyba.com.

SELECTING THE TYPE OF HOME

Options include single-family homes and townhomes or condominiums. Some home buyers prefer homes with large yards. Others opt for condominiums where they can avoid yard maintenance entirely. With a single-family home in a development, you’ll be responsible for your own yard and home, but may be restricted to certain design elements or other regulations if there is a home owner’s association. A condominium is a home in a multi-unit complex, such as an apartment building or a townhouse cluster. You own the home, and you and your neighbors jointly own the common elements, such as the land around the complex, the parking areas, building exteriors, hallways, utility pipes and recreational facilities. A condominium owner’s association is responsible for maintaining the jointly owned elements. The day-to-day business of the complex is generally handled by a managing agency.

STARTING YOUR HOUSE HUNT

Options include single-family homes and townhomes or condominiums. Some home buyers prefer homes with large yards. Others opt for condominiums where they can avoid yard maintenance entirely. Now that you know the type of home and features you are looking for, and how much home you can afford, you’re ready to begin searching for your perfect home. Whether you use a realtor to find an existing home or work with a builder to buy a new home, you’ll be more focused with your search. “The best method to start looking for a new home is to meet with the REALTOR or Builder and to sit down and do a needs analysis to determine new construction or resale, size of home, location, etc.,” said Rebekah Rivers of Ring the Rivers Real Estate in Tallahassee. “A professional can help you narrow down your choices to the best homes so that you will not waste time viewing homes that don’t fit your criteria.”

Advice for Financing Your Home Advanced preparation and a personalized to-do list will help home buyers stay on top of the financing process. You need to decide how much to spend on your home and which type of mortgage will work best for you, as well as understand the settlement process.

Be Realistic About What You Can Afford Figure out what you can comfortably pay on a monthly basis. Write down all your monthly expenses including loan payments, utilities, insurance, credit cards and don’t forget food, clothing and entertainment expenditures. When determining the monthly payment that’s within your reach, remember that in addition to the monthly principal and interest, you will also be paying into escrows for property taxes, hazard insurance and possibly mortgage insurance or a home owners or condominium association assessment.

Pre-Qualify for Your Home Mortgage To ensure the financing process goes smoothly, buyers should consider pre-qualifying for a mortgage and having a financing commitment in place before shopping for a new home. Buyers also may find that some home builders have arranged favorable financing for their customers or offer financial incentives. Preapproval also enables you to quickly make an offer when you find a home, and is attractive to sellers who are considering multiple offers.

Financing Options for Veterans If you are a military veteran, make sure you explore the special financing options available to you through the VA Home Loan program. While you would still apply for the mortgage through a private lender, the VA guarantees a portion of the loan, which can mean more favorable terms and lower monthly payments. For more information, visit benefits.va.gov/ homeloans After taking these steps to get your financing in order, finding your new home will be a much more enjoyable experience. approval also enables you to quickly make an offer when you find a home, and is attractive to sellers who are considering multiple offers.

Kitchens

OPEN FLOORPLAN

Are they right for you?

By Katie Grabowski Lange,

Kitchen Designer at Tallahassee Kitchen Center, Inc.

T

he current trend in new home design or remodeling projects is to create an open floorplan between the kitchen, dining, and living spaces. People love the bright and spacious appearance. They love the spirit of togetherness, how it allows the cook to interact with the whole family instead of labor away in a cramped and dark kitchen. It eliminates underutilized spaces in the home such as the formal dining room, and instead offers a casual and unifying space for everyone to gather. However, not all families will thrive in an open floorplan kitchen. There are some disadvantages that might be a deal breaker for your lifestyle. If you’re thinking about tearing all the walls out of your current kitchen, read this article, and think again!

Privacy

The biggest complaint we hear about the open floorpla layout is a lack of privacy. Imagine the vent blowing away on full speed while the kids are trying to watch television in the same space, or Trick-or-Treaters getting to see your spaghetti dishes from the front door, or your party guests watching you drop the hors d’oeuvres on the ground. Thismight lead to less togetherness than you might think, with other family members hiding away in private rooms while dinner is being prepared. Many chefs appreciate some privacy while they create masterpieces – maybe to hide a secret ingredient or those frequent tasting bites. Not everyone wants each meal prepared to be displayed to the world like a cooking show.

Storage

With no dividing walls between kitchen and living, there’s less hanging space for cabinets. Typically, the storage is relocated into a large island, resulting in substantially less storage space in most designs. Upper cabinets are ideal for dishware and glasses, and some people like to store dry pantry items there as well. If you have multiple sets of dishes that you love to use regularly, make sure you plan adequately for these items! Unless you are planning on downsizing your kitchen equipment, you may not want to remove your adjoining walls.

T A LLA HA SSEE

010 - Ed_FloorplanKitchen_full.indd 1

Working Triangle

The Sink, Refrigerator, and Cooktop/Range in any kitchen should each be between 4’ and 9’ apart, with no obstructions, and include adequate set-off countertop space around each work station. A good work triangle means the chef will take fewer movements to create something delicious. When I’m studying an open floorplan kitchen design, the first thing I look for is the placement of all the key appliances to see if the workflow could be improved. Large islands typical in open floo plans are sometimes positioned in a way that interrupts the working triangle rather than improve it. It’s also not uncommon in open floorplans for the appliances to be positioned too far away from each other. There’s a lot of appeal to an open floorplan. They are bright and spacious, allow the entire family to interact, and leave ample space for traffi patterns throughout the house. That doesn’t mean they are ideal for every family though. Their lack of privacy can be problematic, they have less available storage space than many designs, and in some circumstances have bad workflow for cooking. The best kitchen layout is the one that is tailored to your habits – how you shop, cook, clean, entertain, and live – so make sure you select professionals that ask the important questions when planning your space.

Twin Pond : Havana’s best-kept secret

Whether vintage inspiration or the small-town antique shopping had you visit Havana in the past, perhaps now is the time to take a serious look at the ground floor investment opportunities inside the budding Twin Ponds community. ‘Friendly’ Havana is a relic town, hosting more than 30 specialty shops including artisan crafted furnishings, antiques, and a heritage museum. Evolved from the early-1900 railway lines that transported harvest from locally grown tobacco plantations, the area today at the northwesterly reaches of Florida is an easy commute to the capital.

In 2016, Vieth Development North Florida, Inc. purchased the remaining two-thirds of the original 96 lots for sale in Twin Ponds while reestablishing the overall vision of the community with modern construction of sizeable residences on generous one to two-acre building sites that have been prepped with AT&T fiber optic Internet service and underground utilities. City maintained streets and lighting, safe for walking and biking have enhanced the overall hospitable environment; while future HOA considerations include a picnic park and gazebo with hopes for maintaining the fun-filled Florida-Georgia line folk vibe. The developers allow for investors to preserve their lots without building right away and have made concessions to permit construction by an approved builder of the owner’s choosing. A step aside from the metropolis bustle of the capital and Tallahassee’s rallying university lifestyle, while conveniently located just a half-mile from restaurants and shopping, the entire 200 acres within Twin Ponds is brushed by singing Longleaf Pines and water aviaries. A number of lots sit along the south bank of Lake Frances and around the community accessible pond, overlooking peaceful waters ready for skiffs and kayaks. School choice options in Havana allow for enrollment in neighboring counties when the school has not met its cap. Families find the local festivities at its height during the holiday season including a pumpkin harvest celebration and the Lawn Mower Parade. Yes, you read it right… a lawn mower parade! The many undulating hills and lightly traveled back roads have also attracted fitness enthusiasts to Havana as a preferred cycling destination.

The appeal is set for new generations that choose to hop over to Bannerman Crossing shopping center, The Centre of Tallahassee mall, or for a taste of nightlife in Midtown, Tallahassee. According to market research, Havana is an under-the-radar locale set to boom in home values over the next decade. Prices have continued to go up and in the last year showed more than a 9% increase. As the cost of land soars in Tallahassee, building in Twin Ponds holds charming options as a live-in investment with a medium sized home starting in the low $300,000 range. Lots start in the $20,000’s. TALLAH ASSEE BUILDERS  ASSOCIATION

Build your Company with Leon Works Expo

id you know that the construction industry is the second fastest growing industry in Tallahassee-Leon County? It is projected to grow 12.8% by 2027 – and this projection does not include the rebuilding actions that will occur because of damage caused by Hurricane Michael. One of the biggest challenges facing businesses across all industries, regardless of size, is finding skilled workers. The construction industry is no exception to the challenge of accessing a skilled and talented workforce. With six public high schools and several private high schools in the region, the talent pipeline exists in Florida’s Capital community. The disconnect may be that the next generation of workers is not aware of the career opportunities that are possible in the skilled trades. The Leon Works Expo serves to bridge that disconnect.

industry sectors that do not require a college degree. In fact, studies show that by 2025, over 68,000 new jobs with average wages over $20.00 per hour, that require more than a high school diploma but less than a four-year college degree, will be available in Leon County and the surrounding region. Leon Works strives to educate the 500+ students who attend each year of the many career possibilities that exist with training or coursework, and not a four-year degree. On March 8, 2019, the Leon Works Expo will expand beyond Leon County and include high school students from Wakulla and Gadsden counties, making the outreach to the talent pipeline truly regional in nature. All of the participating students will have the opportunity to engage with employers in person, to interact with successful individuals representing a variety of professions and, possibly, to discover a career path that is perfect for them! We invite you and the Tallahassee Builders Association to participate in the 2019 Leon Works Expo to find the talent you need to grow your business and raise awareness on the extensive career opportunities in the skilled trades! The Tucker Civic Center will be the place to be to promote your industry, engage the future workforce and find your next great hire. To register as an exhibitor, visit www.LeonWorksExpo.com

For the past three years, the Leon Works Expo partners, the Tallahassee-Leon County Offic of Economic Vitality, Leon County Government, Leon County Schools among others, have introduced area high school students and job seekers to the opportunities that exist beyond high school. Attendees see first-hand the abundance of businesses, trades, internships and apprenticeship programs as well as a variety of career opportunities across several

Understanding the Insurance Claims Payment Process How are you paid? Who gets the check? Do you need to replace items immediately? by Insurance Information Institution In the Aftermath of Hurricane Michael, Drexal Harris from Baker Harris Insurance thought this information would be helpful

A

fter a disaster, you want to get back to normal as soon as possible, and your insurance company wants that too! You may get multiple checks from your insurer as you make temporary repairs, permanent repairs and replace damaged belongings.

Your lender or management company might have control over your payment

Here’s what you need to know about claims payments.

If you have a mortgage on your house, the check for repairs will generally be made out to both you and the mortgage lender. As a condition of granting a mortgage, lenders usually require that they are named in the homeowners policy and that they are a party to any insurance payments related to the structure. Similarly, if you live in a coop or condominium, your management company may have required that the building’s fina cial entity be named as a co-insured.

HOME MORTGAGE SPECIALIST NMLS# 1303118 Tallahassee | Crawfordville | TryMyBank.com

The initial payment isn’t final In most instances, an adjuster will inspect the damage to your home and offer you a certain sum of money for repairs, based on the terms and limits of your homeowners policy. The first check you get from your insurance company is often an advance against the total settlement amount, not the final payment. If you’re offered an on-the-spot settlement, you can accept the check right away. Later, if you find other damage, you can reopen the claim and file for an additional amount. Most policies require claims to be filed within one year from the date of disaster; check with your state insurance department for the laws that apply to your area.

You may receive multiple checks

016CS - Ed_Insur_Baker_Fineline_PrimeMer.indd 1

When both the structure of your home and your personal belongings are damaged, you generally receive two separate checks from your insurance company, one for each category of damage. If your home is uninhabitable, you’ll also receive a check for the additional living expenses (ALE) you incur if you can’t live in your home while it is being repaired. If you have flood insurance and experienced flood damage, that means a separate check as well.

This is so the lender (and/or, in the case of a coop or condo, the overall building), who has a financial interest in your property, can ensure that the necessary repairs are made. When a financial backer is a co-insured, they will have to endorse the claims payment check before you can cash it.

Depending on the circumstances, lenders may also put the money in an escrow account and pay for the repairs as the work is completed. Show the mortgage lender your contractor’s bid and let the lender know how much the contractor wants upfront to start the job. Your mortgage company may want to inspect the finished job before releasing the funds for payment to the contractor. If your home has been destroyed, the amount of the settlement and who gets it is driven by your policy type, its specific limits TALLAH ASSEE BUILDERS  ASSOCIATION

and the terms of your mortgage. For example, part of the insurance proceeds may be used to pay off the balance due on the mortgage. And, how the remaining proceeds are spent depend on your own decisions, such as if you want to rebuild on the same lot, in a different location or not rebuild at all. These decisions are also driven by state law.

Your insurance company may pay your contractor directly Some contractors may ask you to sign a “direction to pay” form that allows your insurance company to pay the firm directly. This form is a legal document, so you should read it carefully to be sure you are not also assigning your entire claim over to the contractor. When in doubt, call your insurance professional before you sign. Assigning your entire insurance claim to a third party takes you out of the process and gives control of your claim to the contractor. When work is completed to restore your property, make certain the job has been completed to your satisfaction before you let your insurer make the final payment to the contractor.

Your ALE check should be made out to you Your check for additional living expenses (ALE) has nothing to do with repairs to your home. So, ensure that this check is made out to you alone and not your lender. The ALE check covers your expenses for hotels, car rental, meals out and other expenses you may incur while your home is being fixed

Your personal belongings will be calculated on cash value, first... You’ll have to submit a list of your damaged belongings to your insurance company (having a home inventory will make this a lot easier). Even if you have a replacement value policy, the first check you receive from your insurer will be based on the cash value of the items, which is the depreciated amount based on the age of the item. Why do insurance companies do this? It is to match the remaining claim payment to the exact replacement cost. If you decide not to replace an item, you’ll be paid the actual cash value (depreciated) amount for it.

To get replacement value for your items, you must actually replace them To get fully reimbursed for damaged items, most insurance companies will require you to purchase replacements. Your company will ask for copies of receipts as proof of purchase, then pay the difference between the cash value you initially received and the full cost of the replacement with an item of similar size and quality. You’ll generally have several months from the date of the cash value payment to purchase replacements; consult with your agent regarding the timeframe. In the case of a total loss, where the entire house and its contents are damaged beyond repair, insurers generally pay the policy limits, according to the laws in your state. That means you can receive a check for what the home and contents were insured for at the time of the disaster.

ater heaters are the second biggest energy users in a typical home, second only to the heating and cooling system. In fact, heating water can account for up to 30% of your utility bill. This makes picking the right water heater an important decision not only for your comfort and convenience, but for keeping energy costs under control. The yellow Energy Guide label on a new appliance provides the estimated annual cost to operate it.

Tank-style or Tankless? Thereare two primary types of residential gas water heaters available – storage tank and tankless. When deciding on a gas water heater, consider your water heating needs and energy use habits. If you are a family of three or four (particularly if teenagers occupy your home) a tankless water heater may be the best fit for your home. If one or two people are in the home and your hot water needs extend to daily

showers and kitchen chores, then a tank-style may suit you best. Let’s look at the choices.

Tank-style (Storage) Water Heaters The most popular type of water heater for residential use is the storage water heater, which combines a gas burner with an insulated tank to store hot water. A storage water heater works by taking cold water from the home’s water supply and moving it to the bottom of the tank where it’s heated by a gas burner controlled by a thermostat. Since hot water is lighter than cold water, the heated water rises to the top of the tank where a delivery pipe sends it where it is needed. When the hot water leaves the tank and colder water replaces it in the bottom of the tank, the burner automatically comes on again to heat the new water. The storage water heater contains a relief valve to protect against temperature or pressure that is too high for the tank. Storage tanks are normally made of steel, with insulated interiors lined with glass or another material to prevent

corrosion. Some tanks also contain an anode rod, composed of one or more metals, which attracts corrosion away from the rest of the tank’s components.

Tankless or On-Demand Water Heaters Small and compact, tankless water heaters are usually wall mounted and located close to where the hot water is used. These units have a gas burner that ignites when a hot water faucet is turned on. The burner heats the water as it is being used and turns off when the faucet is turned off. These water heaters can provide from two to four gallons of hot water per minute and, because these units do not store water, there is no standby heat loss.

Both tank and tankless water heaters must be vented when installed inside the home or garage. By-products of combustion from the natural gas burner (mainly water vapor and carbon dioxide, the same elements we exhale

when we breathe) are vented to the outdoors through a chimney, flue or sidewall vent. Theburner is lit by a standing pilot light or by an electronic or spark ignition. Many tankless models are designed to be installed on the exterior wall of the home, freeing space from the interior and eliminating the need for venting. Both tank and tankless Standard Tank-Style Gas Water Heater

require periodic maintenance to prevent buildup on system components. The City of Tallahassee offers a generous $675 rebate on the first-time installation of a natural gas water heater, replacing electric or propane. If it’s time to replace your existing natural gas water heater, a $300 rebate is available. Gas Tankless Water Heater

Cost: Standard Tank-Style water heaters start out at just under $500 and go up depending on the features. Installation costs vary.

Cost: Tankless water heaters are priced at $650 and up based on the model, size and other features. Installation costs vary.

Must be vented to the outside; requires opening through roof or outside wall.

Indoor units must be vented to the outside in the same manner as the standard tankstyle water heater. Newer models feature dual heat exchangers which reduce temperature of vented gases, allowing use of standard PVC for vent pipe in many cases.

The holding tank for hot water continually heats and stores water.

Generally installed in a garage, closet or laundry room. Slightly higher operating cost than tankless.

Many tank-style water heaters can operate without electricity with a standing pilot light. Others have electronic ignition and require an electrical source.

Water only heats on demand; remains hot until hot water is turned off. No internal water storage; no stand-by heat loss.

Space saving (hangs on interior wall) or may be mounted on an exterior wall, eliminating venting requirements.

s A B H t u o h it W d rl o W A ver wonder why more than 300 corporations in Leon County have chosen to be members of the Tallahassee Builders Association (TBA)? Most likely, it’s because they understand the correlation between their business success and the work of their trade organization. But for those who don’t get the picture, just imagine what your industry, and your business, would be like if a Home Builders Association (HBA) did not exist. You would have no “voice” on local laws and regulations that could add thousands of dollars to your operating costs. There would be no one standing up to counter the fallacy that builders are to blame for the problems of growth. And there would be no local or statewide network for associate members to attract new clients and build their businesses. If there was no HBA, builders would not have the resources to fight unreasonable permit fees, or excessive impact fees, or expensive amendments to the statewide building code. If there was no HBA, land developers would not benefit from a state law that prevents environmental gadflies, competitors and extortionists from filing frivolous lawsuits against your development, and you would not be justly compensated when a local or state government action diminishes the value of your land. If there was no HBA, remodelers would not have input to the local and state rehabilitation code and would be limited in their efforts to engage in coastal reconstruction and post-disaster work. If there was no HBA, associate members would miss out on the networking opportunities to promote their products and services to the area’s leading builders and developers. HBA’s cornerstone are their award-winning governmental affairs and legal action programs. The local HBAs fight the battles that begin at home on local ordinances and regulations that impact your business.

HBA’s have local PAC Committees that supports its legislative and legal efforts by working hard to elect pro-housing candidates to the local government agencies or councils. HBA’s provide exclusive marketing benefits by hosting an annual Parade of Homes™, home shows, and new-home promotions. And their business network fuels the growth of associate members. Looking to the future, an HBA is deeply devoted to improving local communities, supporting education, and creating opportunities for young people to pursue rewarding careers in the construction trades. Our HBA is also committed to the well-being and future growth of each individual member. This goal is met in a number of ways. Through our 3-in-1 membership HBA members are provided with the option to purchase risk management and insurance needs through the FHB Insurance Agency; members can activate over 60 cost savings programs available through their membership at both the FHBA and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Members receive incentives to attend the Southeast Building Conference (SEBC) or the International Builders Show (IBS) which are major sources of continuing education for contractors. The regionally acclaimed Aurora Awards, for design excellence, and the Excel Awards for sales and marketing achievements provide business-building recognition. And two award-winning educational tools, Florida HomeBuilder magazine and the websites www.tallyba.com and www.fhba.com, keep members abreast of important information and trends in the region and the state.
