A Home for the Holidays The Holiday Season may be The Best Time To Buy BY NEGM Staff

For so many of us the holidays are a time of tradition and celebration and the thought of buying a home at this time of year is something few consider. Turns out this is really one of the best times all year long to purchase a home and there are many reasons why. THE MARKETPLACE Homes on the market during the holiday season get far less attention because most buyers are on the sidelines with holiday planning and travel. Because there are far less buyers it is easier to find that special home. Having less competition on the buyer's side can mean lower prices on homes, in addition to fewer counteroffers to compete against. Without as many buyers eyeing a potential new home, shoppers have a greater likelihood of keeping savings on their side by avoiding the price creep consistent with multiple buyers interested in the same property. No matter what the season, sellers want to sell their home.

NEHomeLife.com | December 2014 NEHomeLife.com | July 2012

THE MORTGAGE PROCESS Because there are less buyers during the holidays mortgage professionals have more time to dedicate to you. You will get faster turnaround on your application process and more personal attention from your broker. With less business during the holiday season mortgage companies will want your process to go smoothly so it will be part of their closing end of year business. Because of the end of year slowdown, there is also an advantage to locking in better interest rates. INTEREST RATES Interest rates are still low. Interest rates have been consistently low since the Federal Reserve


suppressed rates to near zero. While the Fed has announced rates will remain low on mortgage loans at least into 2015, there's no denying the eventuality that rates are starting on the upward course. Traditionally there is little or no activity in rate increases during the holidays as the Federal Reserve is on holiday break. Rates are much more likely to increase in spring and summer.

Meet It's Still Not too Late to Spend the our team... Holidays in this Beautiful Home!

THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT People are in the holiday spirit. In general, people are more inclined to put in a little more effort to help others out during the holidays.This is also true of companies on the receiving end of the mortgage loan approval process and sellers who are motivated by the season slowdown. You are much more likely to get more for your money and concessions from sellers who want to sell before winter. TAX ADVANTAGES Buying a house and closing before the end of the year may give you a much appreciated tax deduction. You have a good chance to be able to subtract the interest component of the initial mortgage payment from that year's taxable income. Speak to a qualified tax advisor to find out how mortgage interest deduction may be applicable to your circumstances. All the fees and expenses will be a bonus to you come tax time and provide you with better working capitol to make improvements and personal changes in the spring. ENJOY YOUR SUMMER Finally, do you really want to spend your summer vacation overwhelmed with the demands of buying a house? If you're moved in during the winter, you're freed up to enjoy summer activities. If you do some landscaping work in the winter, you'll even enjoy the warm weather more when the fruits of your labors become a pruned and blooming property in the spring. If you put in some planning and effort to buy a home during the winter months, then you can relax and enjoy yourself more than those caught up in the spring and summer house-buying frenzy.

Living In Barrington, RI By NEHL Staff

Barrington, RI has a long a storied history dating back to 1667 when is was part of Plymouth Colony until the merger with Massachusetts in 1691. The town was part of Swansea, MA from its original incorporation in 1667 and the mostly Baptist residents petitioned the state for separation from Swansea in 1711. At the same period Barrington was ceded to Rhode Island and became part of Warren, RI, the RI legislature granted its independence once again as the town of Barrington that same year. Barrington was named after Barrington, Somerset in England where most of the original settlers immigrated. Located on a peninsula in the East Bay, along the shores of Narragansett Bay the small seaside community is just over 15 square miles. Originally, it was almost all farming land with expansive corn and rye fields. The harbor was home to the Barrington Brick Works which were used for construction worldwide. Today Barrington is home to over 17,000 residents and is one of the most popular East Bay communities. The town has become home to some of the states top business leaders and professionals because of its close proximity to Providence, RI.

End of Year Mortgage Tips Restructuring and Refinancing Your Mortgage by Peter DeFusco

Often at years end we assess our finances looking forward to the upcoming New Year and ways we can save on budgets and expenses. It’s a great time to review your mortgage and contact your mortgage professional for advice. There are a number of programs available to homeowners out there today that could save extraordinary amounts of hard dollars over the life of their mortgage that many homeowners overlook. Most mortgages have 25-30 year terms and interest over that time is likely to equal the over 2/3rds of price you paid for your home.

How much could you save? Here are 3 great options will all save thousands 1. Refinancing from 4.75% to 4% A standard 30-year mortgage of $250,000 at 4.75% will cost $1304.00 monthly. If you refinanced to a rate of 4% over 30 years it would reduce that payment to $1190.00 for a saving of over $100.00 a month and in the life of the loan over $36,000. Every ½ point reduction in your interest rate translates in a mortgage savings of approximately 6% of your payment for a 30-year term. This can ad up to great savings and a quicker equity gain in your home. 2. Shorten the term of your loan One of the most dramatic savings in mortgages

NEHomeLife.com | December May 2014 2014 NEHomeLife.com | July 2012

is realized by reducing the term or length of your loan. A 30-year loan refinanced by 5,10 or 15 years will save a homeowner considerable interest and accelerate equity rapidly. For Example That same $250,000 mortgage mentioned above with a monthly payment of $1304.00 reduced by just 5 years would be less than $125.00 more monthly but it would save over $42,000 in interest. For 20 years the savings would amount to over $85,000 and for 15 years a whooping $125,000 in total interest saved over the life of the loan. 3-Bi Weekly loans and Extra Payments A very popular method in mortgage savings today is making payments every 2 weeks during the term of the loan. This method creates one extra month a year payment on your loan. Calculating the same $250,000.loan mentioned above for 30 years at 4.75%, this method would eliminate 5 years of the life of the loan and save over $78,000. It is a popular and effective method for mortgage saving. Paying your mortgage in a bi-weekly program is also going to build home equity faster as well. Extra payments add up Adding extra payments on principle is also a very effective solution to mortgage savings. By


making an extra monthly payment on the principle balance you are directly adding equity every month in the amount of the payment. This is one of the quickest methods out there today to put money into your home equity bank. Additional monthly payment $100 $37,070 $200 $61,161 $300 $78,259

Total savings

Millions of Americans have already taken advantage of the opportunity to refinance at record-low rates these past few years. Despite this environment, one in five households that could have refinanced in recent years had not done so, according to a recent paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

Living In Seekonk, MA By NEHL Staff

Seekonk is located on the eastern most border of Massachusetts along the Rhode Island line just minutes from Providence RI. It was incorporated in 1812 from the western half of Rehoboth. The population was 13,722 at the 2010 census. Until 1862, the town of Seekonk also included what is now the City of East Providence, Rhode Island. The land in the western half of the town was given to Rhode Island by the United States Supreme Court as part of a longstanding boundary dispute with Massachusetts. The earliest known inhabitants of Seekonk were Native Americans from the Wampanoag Tribe. The name Wampanoag means People of the Morning Light. This name refers to the geographical area of the tribe. Living in the East they would be the first people to greet the sun each morning. The area now known as Seekonk and Rehoboth provided agricultural and water resources with abundant food supplies. During the warm summer months the Natives spent time near the rivers and oceans in what is now Southeastern Massachusetts. In the winter months the Natives lived inland, including several locations in Seekonk. At one time there were three Native American villages in the area we 64

now call Seekonk. There are about 5000 homes in Seekonk and the town is home to over 14,000 residents. Two distinct regions separate Seekonk. South

Seekonk has great communities throughout all regions and offers excellent value at almost every price point. There is easy access to Providence as well as commuter rail to Boston just minutes away. The town is comprised of mostly single-family homes and new home development has been brisk in the last two decades with many new developments in the last few years. Seekonk has plenty of wide-open spaces and is still home to a number of farms and agricultural properties. Many properties offer extensive acreage for both livestock and/or horses. Fishing and boating is plentiful in the many rivers and lakes throughout the region. If you're looking for a great community to call home in Southeastern Massachusetts then Seekonk is a must see town.

Winter Home Improvements

By NEHL Staff

It feels a lot like winter in New England already. Like many years in the past it seems we move from summer to winter in early fall almost every year now. There are a number of projects that we all face each year as homeowners. Fall is always a good time to prepare for the harsh weather of winter and the stress that ice and snow has on our homes. Before winter really settles in it is a good time to address major issues with roofs, windows, doors and other exterior projects that we are fast running out of time to complete.

Once the winter weather settles in there is a host of interior projects that are great to get started just after the holidays. Its great to have 1 or 2 interior projects each year to stay busy with the extra time indoors the winter brings us. Now is a great time to get your planning done for spring projects as well. With winter quickly approaching, now is the time for homeowners to take care of some projects

before the first snow Interior home improvement projects can be tackled throughout those cold months. Be it indoor or outdoor, there is always something to be done at home and with these five tips your home is sure to be comfortable and shielded against New England winters. 1) Inspect Your Roof Melting snow and ice dams are leading causes of roof leaks, which can

cause damage to your home and increase the chances of the roof collapsing. Roof Barriers go beyond code requirements to better protect your roof against snow. Installing ice barriers on the roof will protect your home and save you worry throughout the snowy months. Along with preventative measures to stop your roof from being damaged, before the first snow check your roof for any cracks or signs of deterioration. Ensure longevity for your home with products that will protect your roof against the first snow and many more to come. 2) Insulate Your Home With the price of heating homes constantly on the rise, you can save money on heating bills and promote eco-friendliness

and updating the look of your cabinets, installing skylights and working to make your home more handicapped accessible. If remodeling is an option you would like to explore, make sure to plan early so your results are what you envision. 4) Replace Old Windows Heat can escape from any cracks, whether via the glass in your window or an improperly installed casing. New windows can help cut down on your heating bill and bring a beautiful new look to your home. Most firms offer in-home service and measuring to give you a

by installing insulation. Good insulation helps keep your home warm in the winter without cranking up the thermostat (and can keep it cooler in the summer months). Homeowners can choose the conventional fiberglass method for the attic and basement, or the innovative insulation additives, which can be added to paint. Insulation additives reflect heat off the walls and help keep heat inside rather than let it escape out into the cold. 3) Remodel a Room While winter is not an ideal time to build a home addition, a project which brings a whole new look and is suitable for the cold weather is to flip a room. Many homeowners can think of a few things they would like to change

good idea of cost. Today’s replacement windows are highly energy efficient and easy to maintain. You can relax knowing you’re not heating the great outdoors and won’t have the worry of deterioration or leakage once the snow begins to melt. 5) Create a Festive Vibe Regardless of which winter holiday your family celebrates, making quick changes around the home to reflect the season is a fun project your whole family can participate in. If you’re bold, you could paint or wallpaper a wall for a festive accent. Keep the kids busy creating ornaments out of everyday items or designing personalized holiday cards for family and friends. Simply adding festive accents such as candles, lights, throws, and pillows can also create a uniquely seasonal feel to the home. December 2014 | NEHomeLife.com
