ARA

With lenders being more stringent, your credit score is more important than ever.

How your credit score can impact your home purchase (ARA) - Purchasing a home can be the most rewarding - and also the most frustrating - financial transaction of your life. Especially today, when the news is filled with stories about the great market conditions for buyers. One aspect of the home buying process that's often overlooked is the extra cost that interest from a home loan adds to the total price of the home. It's true that interest rates are at historical lows. It's also true that lenders have reduced the types of loans they offer, and simultaneously have become more stringent about who qualifies. A recent study by VantageScore Solutions, the company

behind the VantageScore credit score model, shows that the rate of default for homeowners with good credit (a credit score of 700 or better based on the VantageScore scale of 501-990) has decreased dramatically since 2009. Also notable is the increase in the last two years of new loan applicants with a score of 700 or better (less than 40 percent in 2009; 90 percent in 2011). The result? A good credit score can help shave thousands of dollars in interest off the cost of a loan. So, before you even begin looking at houses, getting your credit in good order is essential.

Find the right contractor for spring home improvements (ARA) - You've got a list of spring home improvements to do, a vision for getting them done, and you even have a budget. Now all you need is someone to do the work; it's time to hire a contractor. Yet even the best-laid home improvement plans can go awry if you hire the wrong person or company to do the job. Even if this is your first home improvement project, and your first time hiring a contractor, you've probably heard some horror stories: contractors who overcharge, underestimate the actual cost of a job, drag a project out weeks longer than it should take, or simply leave a job unfinished. While the majority of contractors are honest, you still need to check a contractor's business license, and the business's financial stability, before you hire anyone for your spring home improvement project. Fortunately, with a few simple steps, you can help ensure you choose the right contractor for your job: Find out about his finances Credit issues are common during difficult financial times. While the presence of issues concerning a contracting company's financial background doesn't necessarily mean the owner is a bad person, credit problems could directly affect his ability to do a job.

Contractors with limited access to credit may be unable to buy the materials they need or hire the help required to complete your project. Online resources like ContractorCheck.com, by Experian, can help you check a contractor's credentials. Experian maintains a database of more than 5 million contractors and their businesses' information, and ContractorCheck.com allows you to view this data, which includes critical information such as: • Company name, address and phone number • Multiple operating addresses • How long the company has been in business • License, bonding and insurance information • Contractor specialties • A credit review that will reveal any past collection or derogatory credit events • An easy-to-understand contractor rating Additionally, ContractorCheck.com reports include public record information such as liens or judgments against the business - important information considering that according to a recent review of Experian's database, 8.4 percent of contractors had a lien on file and 6.2 percent had a judgment filed against them.

ARA

If you have a deck, dress it up to help your sale.

Tips for making your home stand out in the market (ARA) - If you have decided to sell your home, that last thing you want is for it to sit on the market for a long time. Taking some home improvement steps before listing can make your house more attractive to potential buyers and put you in a better position to sell quickly. So what do you need to do to ensure that listing your house floods your real estate agent's office with showing requests? 1. Spiff up the entranceway Every interested buyer will enter through your front door. Have you looked at your entranceway with a critical eye lately? Consider replacing old or sagging screens. If your front door

is dirty or scratched, clean it up or add a fresh coat of paint. Sweep away dirt and grime and set out a new entrance mat. Oil any squeaky hinges. If you have plants or shrubbery leading up to your home, make sure that they are trimmed appropriately. A manicured landscape leading up to a welcoming front door will portray the positive experience of living there. An ugly or dirty entranceway can turn away buyers before they enter your house, meaning even if your home has the most amazing interiors, their minds may already be made up. 2. Create an outdoor oasis by detailing your deck See “TIPS� on Page 30

Credit Continued from Page 15 A good credit score will help you qualify for the most favorable loan terms, and make buying a home a positive long-term experience. Here are a few tips from VantageScore Solutions that will help put you in a good position to apply for a home loan: • Already paying your bills on time? That's a great start. In addition, check your credit report to make sure it accurately reflects your credit history. You can obtain one free copy of your credit report annually from each of the three national credit reporting companies (CRCs - Equifax, Experian and TransUnion) by visiting www.annualcreditreport.com. If you do find discrepancies, take the steps necessary to get those issues corrected. The FTC website lays out a process for you to follow if you believe there are corrections needed to your report. Be sure to allow at least 30 days for your credit report to reflect any information that might have been updated or corrected. • As you prepare to apply for a loan, make sure you're following other best practices that may help

Tips Continued from Page 20 Today's buyer isn't just interested in the inside of a home, but the outdoor space as well. Taking your deck or patio from drab to fab may only require adding a couple of stylistic extras. Start by adding beautiful deck and fence post caps like Deckorators VersaCaps to create a polished, upscale look for your outdoor space. These one-size-fits-all caps have nested inserts that are compatible with wood, composite and vinyl posts, and come in a variety of colors. Next, add unique decorative fascia corners that stylishly adorn deck skirting and cover unsightly corner joints. These new decorative fascia corners come in two designs and install quickly with screws. 3. Add outdoor extras for safety and style Additions that are both beautiful and useful get noticed by potential buyers. Railings can add style to your deck, porch, patio or stairs, plus they add a safety element to your home. Deckorators CXT Railing is the perfect choice because you get to choose from a variety of rail and baluster combos that emulate the look of real painted wood and are ultra low-maintenance for long-term durability and strength. Another addition to consider is LED lighting that makes a

you improve your credit score. For example, experts recommend keeping your debt levels at less than 30 percent of the total credit available to you. You should also avoid applying for other types of new credit (credit cards, equity credit lines, etc.) before you apply for a home loan. • You may have heard that having your credit report requested frequently can harm your score, but do not let this keep you from shopping around for rates on a loan. A good rule of thumb is to gather research on mortgage providers over time, then tell the mortgage lenders to check your credit score within a 14-day period. Most credit scoring models will recognize that you are shopping for a home loan, and it won't significantly affect your score. • If your credit score is lower than you'd like, be patient. Rebuilding your credit takes time. While you might be anxious to purchase your home, waiting until your credit has rebounded can save you thousands of dollars in the long run if it means a lower interest rate. While it's easy to get caught up in the excitement of buying a home, it pays to take the necessary steps to ensure that you're getting the best rate possible on your home loan. To learn more about what influences your credit score and what you can do to improve your credit, visit www.vantagescore.com. home stand out at dusk and provides just the right amount of light so outdoor space can safely be enjoyed any time of day. 4. Add modern colors to interior walls Cracked paint or dated wall colors are sure to turn off buyers. For a small price, you can purchase plaster and several cans of paint to refresh dated looking rooms for a clean, modern feel. Not sure what paint colors are on-trend? Visit your local paint or hardware store for insight. Remember, it's best to avoid anything too bold, so even if you love fire truck red, pick a shade a little more demure so you attract the most potential buyers. 5. Reduce clutter for clean, minimalist rooms If you've ever visited a house that's been staged, you know that it helps buyers envision what they might do with the room. To follow this example, you'll want to make sure that you eliminate all clutter, clean up drawers and closets, stow away extra items like pillows and blankets, and reduce the amount of personal photography you display. Remember, you want buyers to visualize themselves in your home, not see your last family portrait and feel out of place. Always keep in mind that you want to paint a picture for buyers of the wonderful life they can have if they purchase your home. If they have a good first impression and can envision their family enjoying each room in the house, they are going to want to submit a bid fast.

Home inspections aren’t only for buyers By Warren Ivey President Permian Basin Board of Realtors Most people associate inspections with buying a house, but sellers can benefit from them, too. Why? Because a home inspection identifies deficiencies with your property, some of which you may not be aware of. Get there first An inspection will give you a better understanding of conditions that may be discovered by the buyer’s inspector. It gives you time to correct conditions before a buyer even has a chance to ask for a concession. Eliminating problems ahead of time, even minor ones, also lets potential buyers focus on what’s right about the property instead of what needs repair. Know exactly what to fix

Inspection reports explain the nature of needed repairs, often with photographs that show the problem. If you decide to correct a condition, the detail found in the report can be of great assistance whether you’re fixing it yourself or explaining to the plumber what needs to be done. “I have nothing to hide” Providing potential buyers with a recent inspection of your home is a goodfaith gesture that shows forthrightness. Such a gesture might make buyers more comfortable submitting an offer, knowing their own inspection won’t likely discover hazards or major systems in need of immediate repair. Inspectors are neutral You can tell buyers that your home’s in good shape, or you can show them a report from a licensed inspector that tells them your home’s in good shape. Which

source will they trust more? Make sure the price is right A thorough inspection and report regarding the condition of your home can help you and your REALTOR® arrive at a fair asking price—and defend it. If you decide to get a seller’s inspection … Here are some questions to ask before you hire an inspector: Are you licensed in this state? What’s your fee? What does your inspection include and exclude? How long will the inspection take, and can I attend it? (Be wary of an inspector who doesn’t want you around.) What will your report look like? How do you inspect the roof? Do you have a list of references?If I make repairs based on your report, is there a fee to re-inspect the house?
