Fall Home Considerations TO MAKE BEFORE WINTER

While the spring is the standard time to clean and declutter your home, fall is also a great opportunity to examine areas you may have overlooked, refresh any spaces that feel dull, and consider safety measures.


GET SOFTER LIGHTS. Shorter days and colder weather mean we’ll be spending a lot more time indoors. Switch to light bulbs that have softer light that is easier on the eyes. Poor quality or bright light can cause unneeded eye strain. Use this time to make the switch to LED bulbs if you haven’t already – they last longer and are cheaper than ever. REFRESH. Give rooms a facelift by switching out the old carpeting or area rugs. Opt for a hypoallergenic option to help you enjoy the comfort of the carpet, while not worrying about its allergens, microbes and odors. Give your bedroom linens a refresh as well, by making the switch to warmer flannel sheets and blankets that will keep you warm and cozy in the night. SAFETY FIRST. October is Fire Prevention Month, and it is the perfect time to take stock of your home’s fire safety by testing alarms to ensure that the devices and batteries are functioning properly. Replace any alarms that are outdated and install new alarms in your home. One should be located on every level and in every bedroom of the home. Fire deaths are often caused by dead or missing batteries or no alarms at all – so keep your family safe. And if you don’t have any, it is now the time to install carbon monoxide detectors as well.

Speaking of cozy – keep that way during the long, cold months ahead with a basket in the living room and den filled with comfy throws and blankets. You’ll want to reach for one on those colder nights when all you want to do is curl up with a book or a movie.

Ready to Look for Your First Home? S OM E TIP S TO GE T YOU ON Y O U R W AY


You’re finally ready to make the leap from renting into home ownership, which is a very exciting time. But, hey, let’s face it — it can also be overwhelming, and even a little scary. But don’t worry, with the right preparation, you’ll be ready to take the home search head-on and find the perfect home for you.

Here are some helpful ways to prepare yourself for your first house hunt:

Take a class.

Research your mortgage options.

There are many first-time homebuyer education courses available, many of which are offered online. They provide potential homebuyers with detailed information, advice and budgeting tips on how to purchase a home. And upon completion, some provide a homebuyer certificate, which may allow consumers loan products that might otherwise be out of their grasp.

There are a lot of mortgage options out there, each with their individual pros and cons. If you’ re having trouble saving up for a larger down payment, check out:

Save, save, save. And then save some more. Prospective homebuyers need to save as much as possible toward the purchase price of the house and closing costs. Though minimum down payments start around 5 percent, the greater the down payment the more favorable the borrowing terms. If you can purchase a home with at least 20 percent down, you probably will save even more because you won’t need to buy private mortgage insurance (PMI).

„

Conventional mortgages that conform to standards set by government-sponsored entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac., which require as little as 3 percent down.

„

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans, which permit down payments as low as 3.5 percent.

„

Veteran Affairs (VA) loans, which sometimes require no down payment at all.

Shopping around for your mortgage can lead to real savings. Saving even a quarter of a point in interest saves thousands of dollars over the life of a loan.

Find an agent. First-timers should ask around or look online to find a trusted real estate agent. An agent’s job is to know how much properties are worth, facilitate the sale process and bring an offer to the seller’s agent—and help guide you along the way.

NOW THAT YOU KNOW HOW TO PREPARE, IT’S TIME TO GET OUT THERE AND START HUNTING FOR YOUR FIRST HOME!

GET THE RIGHT APPRAISAL BY TAKING THE PROPER STEPS Whether you’re a buyer or a seller, getting an accurate appraisal of a home’s worth is critical before proceeding with a sale. When it comes to knowing the value of a purchase, your home is the bottom line.


FOR SELLERS: In today’s market, lots of factors can contribute to an appraisal coming in lower than expected, some of which might include the lack of recent comparable home sales in the area, or using an appraiser from another town or region. Want to know if your home is being appraised properly?

y Get an appraisal before you list your home for sale. Use it, along with your real estate agent’s expertise to set the right price for your home. y See what similar houses are selling for or are valued at. y Maintain a file of all the improvements, upgrades made, and tax documents related to your house. y If you don’t like the appraisal, question it. Maybe there is some information you can provide or something that you can point out that the appraiser missed.

Also, if you’re selling your home, before you get an appraisal, do your best to make the most of your home’s features. Obviously, your home won’t transform from a single-family to a palatial estate overnight, so some things in the appraisal (square footage, number of rooms, etc.) won’t change. But you can make sure that things are clean, everything in the house appears maintained and functional, and knock out any DIY projects you’ve been putting off. Following these tips will go a long way towards helping you get the appraisal you want.

Don’t Wait for Winter

Service Your Furnace or Boiler Now

Late fall or early winter is the time most of us begin to crank up our heat, hoping to get toasty right away. But if you have a boiler or furnace, that heat could not be working come the chilly part of the year. That’s why it’s important not to wait until the last minute to service your heating system.

Lots of homeowners have good intentions when it comes to scheduling maintenance, but it’s easy to forget things like tune-ups when your equipment is still operating correctly. It only becomes an issue when something breaks or fails. The last thing anyone wants however, is to be without heat when the temperatures are below freezing. So, while its on your mind now, schedule a tune-up for your furnace or boiler. You’ll also beat the crowd in getting it done now, as opposed to waiting until the weather cools. Additionally, there’s many other reasons to tune up your system: Prevent frozen pipes. It’s not unusual for homeowners to lower the thermostat while they’re away from home. However, residents should maintain a regular temperature in their home—around 65 degrees—to avoid bursting or frozen pipes.

It prolongs the life of your furnace. Regular maintenance can keep your furnace working at maximum efficiency and actually lengthen the life of the equipment. And you might not know this but skipping annual maintenance can often void a manufacturer’s warranty. So not only are you hurting the system, you’re potentially hurting your wallet. It helps you stay safe. Most furnaces are gas-burning, which produces carbon monoxide. A leak could prove dangerous or even fatal. During routine maintenance, a technician will take preventative measures to ensure this can’t happen, such as changing the filter and giving the furnace a thorough cleaning. Install a carbon monoxide detector as well if you don’t have one already.

So, before the cold weather comes in the coming months, contact your local heating company to come perform a furnace or boiler check-up. You’ll thank yourself later.

BENEFITS OF INSTALLING A TANKLESS WATER HEATER You might think the old water heater in the garage is fine – after all, you’re able to take hot showers and those things are expensive to replace. But as is the case with most appliances and electronics, modern technology can create massive improvements. This goes for tankless water heaters. They take up less space, are leak-free and can save you money on your water bill.

Top benefits of taking the tankless plunge include: Saving Money on Your Energy Bill

You Won’t Run Out of Hot Water

If you’re going to shell out money for a new water heater, you better be getting some back, right? Well, a tankless heater will save you from constantly heating and reheating water. With a conventional water heater, the hot water is stored inside the tank. In theory, this keeps a ready supply of hot water on hand for immediate use, but in fact the hot water just sits around when not being used. After some time, the heat will dissipate, and the water heater will need to reheat the water all over again. And guess where this waste of energy shows up? On your utility bill.

A tankless water heater doesn’t store hot water for later use. Instead, a tankless water heater only produces as much hot water as a person needs. In other words, when the hot water faucet is turned on, the tankless unit provides the exact amount of hot water dispensed until the faucet is turned off. You can leave the hot water faucet on for hours and the tankless water heater will continue providing hot water. So, you’ll never need to worry about running out during a shower or conserving so someone else in your home can take a hot shower after you.

No Leakage

Smaller Footprint

Leakage is one of the biggest problems with conventional water heaters. No matter the model, they will begin to leak eventually, as they are being constantly filled and drained of water every day for years. Because the tankless heater doesn’t store water, it won’t have any to leak.

One of the best things about a tankless water heater is how little space they take up. A tank water heater can take up an entire utility closet or feet of space in your garage. On the other hand, standard tankless water heaters are generally no larger than a computer tower.

When it comes time to replace your water heater, tankless ones are your best option. If you’re tired of running out of hot water, having higher bills and dealing with messes, contact your plumber to install one today.
