Original Valley PENNYSAVER • June 1, 2013

June 1, 2013 Hello Again, Con Artists sure come in all shapes and sizes. I was watching television a few minutes ago and a big name store had this commercial running. “The more you buy the more you’ll save.” Before I was a teenager I figured out the only way I could save was to not buy. What would I have left to save after I spent it? Standing near George Washington’s home in Virginia during the spring of 1953. A girl classmate said, “George Washington, standing near his house, threw a silver dollar across the Potomac River. The river at that point must be nearly a half-mile wide. Isn’t that some sort of proof that money went further in those days?” Chatting about money it seems reasonable that we should give our president credit for handling money. He is certainly better at it than presidential candidate Mr. Romney. During Mr. Obama’s years in Washington he has already helped spend several trillion dollars. While Mr. Romney was only able to make a few hundred millions of dollars, and keep it. Just think if Mr. Romney bought into that philosophy and spent all of his millions. By now he could go over-seas and buy China, Japan or Taiwan. If he owned China we – his fellow Americans – would owe him several trillions instead of becoming president he could own this country. Do you think that our president has bought into the local department store’s philosophy “The more you spend – The more you’ll save”? It would appear that we are very quickly spending ourselves into a room at the poor house. On the other hand if our Washington leaders could buy China and Japan and connect both of them to the North American continent, think of all the money we could save. Then we Americans would be able to claim to be the world master at money making by spending more than we have so we could save even more. It would appear to some that Mrs. Pelosi must have composed that line just before her famous announcement, “We are going to pass Mr. Obama’s health bill. Then we will figure out what it says.” Long before baseball Cooperstown, NY was a birthplace of fame. James Fenimore Cooper, considered one of America’s first romantic novelist, lived most of his lifetime in Cooperstown, which was established by his father William Cooper. Contrary to those who would have our so called ‘modern society’ believe that early America was not a Christian believing nation, Judge William Cooper and his famous son were both Christians. James Fenimore was a lifetime member of the Episcopal Church in Cooperstown. And, during his later years he was a generous supporter and contributor. His world famous historical novels known as The Leatherstocking Tales were considered family treasures and read worldwide. When Cooper was 13 years old he enrolled at Yale and was expelled in his junior year for

Original Valley PENNYSAVER • June 1, 2013

blowing up a fellow students’ door. I have often wondered if James Fenimore Cooper had stayed at Yale and graduated what would the remainder of his life have been? Lawyer, doctor, or just a landowner. With expulsion from Yale, he entered the Navy and eventually turned to writing fictional historical novels and became world famous. I’m sure you will find some of his novels in your local library. Cooperstown’s claim to fame hangs not only on the name of James Fenimore Cooper and his Leatherstocking Tales but must be shared with Abner Doubleday and the history of the great American sport – baseball. While accepted by most as a Cooperstown native and inventor of baseball, Abner Doubleday lived as a youth in Auburn, NY and moved to Cooperstown to live with an uncle and attend a private preparatory high school. In 1838, he entered the United States Military Academy and eventually became a two star major general. Let’s toss in a bit of humor. During the 1950’s, I worked as a high school student at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and museum. During those years, Ernest John Lanigan, the author of the first encyclopedia of baseball, was the museum-library historian. One day I asked, “Mr. Lanigan, was Cooperstown the real birthplace of baseball?” He answered, “Why not? It is just as good here as anywhere else.” While in the eyes of most baseball fans, Abner Doubleday is believed to be the inventor of baseball, to Civil War buffs he is known as the military officer who shot the first cannon shot in defense of Fort Sumter which started the Civil War. Just think - on his gravestone we could letter: First in baseball and first in saving our nation. Shortly after Paddy arrived from Ireland, he was arrested and brought before the judge. The judge with a surprised look asked, “Are you the defendant?” “No,” said Paddy. “I hired a lawyer to do my defending. I’m the one who stole the chickens.” While I enjoy chatting with you, I am looking out of the front window and I see the little red Spyder beckoning to me. You guessed it right; the Spyder is winning – so until next Hello Again, God be with you. I’ll leave you with something to ponder and chat about. If so many of our founding fathers and mothers believed and practiced the truth in the Bible (God’s word) and the few colonies with such a tiny population grew into the great United States, a leader in the world, why has it become so popular to treat God – our Heavenly Father – as if he doesn’t exist and/or that his words in the Bible are not worth the time to study? I pray that he will not reach a decision to treat our country and people in the same way. Remember tomorrow will be the first day of the rest of your life. Make it count. Be happy and treat your neighbor as your closest friend. If you’re looking for something to do Sunday, try visiting a Bible-believing church. Fred Lee and Family

Lisa has been confined to a wheelchair since July 2012 due to an infection throughout her body. The infection has caused many other medical issues. She has spent many days in and out of the hospital and has had several surgeries. Lisa needs more medical care to be able to walk again. The high cost of copays has been overwhelming. Lisa has a long road ahead of her for recovery. In the past 10 years she has endured many medical problems. She survived colon cancer (and is now cancer free), she was injured in a car accident, she has had open heart surgery, and she has been a diabetic her whole life. She never complains, is a true fighter and has never asked for help. We ask you to join hands with us, her friends and family, to help Lisa through this difficult time. 518-664-9743 VP

Whatchamacallits This is a shoemaker’s lasting tool, made to grip each end of the leather as it is stretched around the skeleton of a boot. There are several types of such tools. This one is known as the Caliper type. This was a specialty tool, used for boots with particularly stout leather and not every ordinary shoe. It was used on sea boots, sewer boots and some military-style boots. The leather was held at the bottom of the boot, below the sole. Where other lasting tools have only one set of pincers, this type was able to simultaneously grip the leather on both sides of the boot. Caliper lasting tools were especially handy if the shoemaker did not leave much excess leather and had only a limited edge left to grip. The

narrow joints of this lasting tool make it a handy option for getting between the edge of the leather and the skeleton of the boot. The earliest recording for this lasting tool is dated 1890 and appears to have French origins.

Choralaires to perform This will be a special time for the Choralaires as this spring marks 40 years that the Choralaires have been presenting concerts in the local valley towns. Now numbering 30 members, the original group of 13 members was directed by Norman Stoddard. Since that time other directors have included Diane Wager, Sue-Ann Wheadon, and now Alison Wallace. Over the years they have been accompanied by Sandy Stoddard, Mary King, Lucille VanSlyke, Marion Settle, Norma Bowley, and, for the last 24 years, Janet Shuster. The concert, entitled “Forty Years of Musical Memories”, will be a selection of the group’s favorite music from the past four decades. Past directors, accompanists and members are urged to attend so they can be acknowledged for their contributions to the group. There will be Choralaires memorabilia on display,

The Valley Choralaires pause for a photo as they prepare for their Forty Years of Musical Memories concert. Seated from the left are Dorothy Morrison, Alice McEwan, Marion Harris, and Mary Finch. Standing in the next row are Diane Littrell, Nancy Mace, Susan Bradt, Karen Crouse, Carolyn Crouch, Kathleen Schlotzhauer, Cheryl Brown, Ginny McCarthy, Liz Wilson, Kelly Casler, Mary Lou Corso, and Rayna Oeser. Standing in the back are: Judy Ferguson, Kathy LaCoppola, Jessica Harris, Alison Wallace (director), Carol Schilde, Elinor Douglass, Janet Kling, Judy Sinner, and Janet Shuster (accompanist). Absent from the photo are: Anne Cooper, Eunice Bollen, Joanne Resch, Grace Downes, and Linda Klump.

admission is free, but a free will offering will be gratefully accepted. The ladies of the St.John’s-St.Mark’s

church will provide free refreshments after the concert. Concert will be at the St. John’s-St.

Mark’s Lutheran Church on Church St., Canajoharie, on Sunday, June 2, at 3 p.m.

Happy birthday Mildred M i l d r e d Voss, born May 28, 1913, daughter of Earl and Grace Bellman, celebrated her 100th birthday Saturday, May 25 at Wells House in Johnstown, where she resides with her husband, Paul. A party

was given in her honor, by her daughter, Karen. Many friends helped her celebrate her very special milestone birthday. Mildred was born and grew up with her mom and dad and two sisters, Ruth and Mable on their family farm in Buel, NY. Later she was employed by Beech Nut, where she met Paul. They were wed

on Aug. 26, 1938. Mildred happily became a homemaker, wife and mother at their new home in Canajoharie, NY. Mildred continues to enjoy reading, playing games and reminiscing. Photo albums provide a rich source of material for the recollections, reflections and stories she shares with family, friends and all who stop by to visit.

United States Navy veteran Ron Seeley of St. Johnsville received a plaque commemorating 50 years of continuous, dedicated service to the Morris J. Edwards American Legion Post 168. Seeley has been in service to the Post since 1963. According to his son, Shawn Seeley, Ron served in the United States Navy from September 1952 until November 1955. He served as a ‘boatsman mate’ on the USS Pecatonica during the Korean War. His gasoline tanker stopped in ports that include Gibraltar, Sicily, Italy, Malta, Cyprus, Turkey and France. Ron was presented with the plaque by the Post’s 3rd Vice Commander Alan ‘Charlie’ Weaver, correlating with Memorial Day. “He is like so many others

who answered the call of duty when it came,” said Weaver of Seeley. Seeley was also honored as Grand Marshall of St.

Johnsville’s 2013 Memorial Day Parade. His great-grandchildren carried the honorary banner throughout the parade.

plumb bob, $440; early hatchet, $50; miniature brace, Dutch origin, $120; and a box of letter stamps, set of 27, A to Z plus &, $33.

vices, 27 Fickett Road, Pownal ME 04069. Q: I have a partial set of Sakura china in the Laredo pattern. Although I originally had a complete service for 12, I have managed to break several plates, cups and saucers during the past 20 or so years. I really like this pattern and would like to replace my missing pieces. Can you help me? — Terry, Bluffton, SC A: Your pattern was discontinued during the late 1990s. Replacements, Inc. is the go-to source for missing pieces of sterling flatware, china and crystal. I checked the company’s website and found several pieces, including a cup and saucer for $9.99; a 9-inch vegetable bowl, $79.95; and a dinner plate, $23.99. The toll-free number is 800-7375223. Q: I have an opportunity to buy a recording by Caruso, “Chanson de Noel,” issued by Victor on its red seal label. I can buy it for $50. Deal or not? — Carl, Ramona, CA. A: Your record was cut just before Christmas of 1916 and is valued in the $5 to $15 range, depending on condition. Most Caruso recordings are not as rare as many people have been led to believe. The ones to look for are his Zonophone recordings, which can sell for upward of $1,000 each, depending on selection and, again, condition. My advice is to pass on the “deal.” (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Value of antiques, artwork, or collectibles Antiques, artwork, and other collectible items have such an individual nature that a fixed value is difficult to establish. Market trends and the personal interests of both the seller and the purchaser determine prices. The Smithsonian Institution provides a list of appraisal resources to help you determine the monetary value of your collectibles.

Collecting by Larry Cox Majolica Frogs Q: I recently inherited a set of Majolica figurines. Although they are rather hideous, I suspect they might be valuable. According to the documents I have, they were made by Jerome Massier and are his “Singing Frogs.” — Betty, Westminster, CO A: You are going to croak with joy when I tell you that your figurines are valued at $1,200 in Warman’s Majolica Identification and Price Guide by Mark F. Moran. According to Moran, the Massier family began producing ceramics in Vallauris, France, during the mid-18th century. Q: I have a painting by Emmanuel P. Matthews entitled “Picnic on the Pond.” I was told several years ago by a representative of a major auction house that it could be worth as much as $10,000, but I would have to bring it to New York for a real appraisal. What is your advice? — Samantha, Streator, IL A: If you plan to sell your painting, the first thing you need to do is get an appraisal by a certified expert. This expert isn’t a neighbor or someone who claims to know a little about artwork. To find an appraiser, I suggest you contact one

of the associations, namely The American Society of Appraisers, P.O. Box 17265, Washington, DC 20005; The International Society of Appraisers, 1131 SW 7th St., Suite 105, Renton, WA 98055; or The Appraisers Associa-tion of America, 386 Park Ave. South, No. 2000, New York, NY 10016. Experts generally provide two types of appraisals, verbal and written. Written appraisals are especially recommended for insurance purposes. After you have gotten an appraisal, then the time has come to contact some of the larger auction houses. The main thing is to do your homework and rely on experts who are competent and knowledgeable about artwork. Q: I have a creamer and sugar set that I believe is at least 100 years old. I am enclosing pictures of the set, which is marked “Germany.” Can you help me find out more about it? — Sue, Montevideo, MN A: Judging by the pictures you sent, I believe your set was made during the 1920s. Similar sets in my area sell in the $25 to $45 range, depending, of course, on condition. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

St. Johnsville’s Annual Memorial Day Parade

More than 80 veterans of the United States armed forces took part in St. Johnsville’s 2013 Memorial Day Parade, which was organized by the Morris J. Edwards American Legion Post 168. Photos by Elizabeth A. Tomlin

by Katie Ranno The town of St. Johnsville observed Memorial Day with their annual parade which cascaded down the town’s main street. Acting as Grand Marshall was Ron Seeley, a long time member of the town’s local American Legion, Post 168. Veterans in

uniform marched behind the St. Johnsville police car at the start of the parade, while local veterans of World War II were also recognized. Army combat vehicles followed with veterans riding in or driving the motorcade. Spectators came out to enjoy the sunny day and

thank those who have so bravely served their country. Retired St. Johnsville physical education teacher, Louis Micklic and his family get together every year to have a family barbecue and see their local vets be honored and go to the local cemetery to pay their respects.

St. Johnsville’s High School band performed in the parade and played the Star Spangled Banner at the Award winning Oppenheim-Ephratah School Memorial Day Ceremony at the Soldiers and Sailors Marching Hawks Band put on a an excellent exhibiMemorial Park. tion for the Memorial Day Parade attendees.

Original Valley PENNYSAVER • June 1, 2013

WWII and Korean War veterans were among the crowd that attended the annual Memorial Day Ceremony held at the monument in Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Park in St. Johnsville.

Some came out to support their local veterans and family members. Jennifer Conklin and her family have been coming out to the parade for the past 20 years. This year they came to support her brother, an army vet, who was marching in the parade. Louella Kazlauskas

of St. Johnsville came out to support her husband, a veteran of the Korean War, who was walking in Monday’s festivities as well. Other’s came out to see their local firemen and police be honored for their courageous work. Life-long St. Johnsville resident Alice

Page 37 Jean says she likes to come out to the parade “to see the tremendous support for our firemen.” A line of fire trucks came down the way, with their shiny red paint glistening in the cool sun, along with vehicles from the local swim and dive team and the ambulance corp. The parade was mostly about our local veterans and those who serve us everyday, and also very much about community. The little league team were all smiles as they waved to spectators. Both St. Johnsville and OppenheimEphratah marching bands and color guards gave crowdpleasing performances Many parade goers agreed that community is also a big reason for why they come out to the parade. St. Johnsville resident Judy Weaver agrees, saying that she enjoys seeing old friends and seeing the bands perform as well.

Ninety-four-year-old Gordy Davis wore his original Army uniform and was transported in an original WWII Army Jeep in the parade, driven by Sherman Day.

Extended application deadline for the Making Home Affordable Program E x t e n s i o n through December 2015 will provide struggling homeowners additional time to access sustainable mortgage relief and align end dates for key assistance programs WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development recently announced an extension of the Obama Administration’s Making Home Affordable Program through December 31, 2015. The new deadline was determined in coordination with the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) to align with extended deadlines for the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) and the Streamlined Modification Initiative for homeowners with loans owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The Making Home Affordable Program has been a critical part of the Obama Administration’s comprehensive efforts to provide relief to families at risk of foreclosure and help the housing market recover from a historic housing crisis. The program deadline was previously December 31, 2013.

Since its launch in March 2009, about 1.6 million actions have been taken through the program to provide relief to homeowners and nearly 1.3 million homeowners have been helped directly by the program. The Making Home Affordable Program includes the Home Affordable Modification Program or HAMP, which modifies the terms of a homeowner’s mortgage to reduce their monthly payment to prevent foreclosure. As of March 2013, more than 1.1 million homeowners have received a permanent modification of their mortgage through HAMP, with a median savings of $546 every month – or 38 percent of their previous payment. Homeowners seeking assistance with their mortgage payments should remember that there is never a fee to apply to the Making Home Affordable Program. Homeowners can work with a HUDapproved housing counseling agency free-of-charge to understand their options and apply for help. Homeowners should visit for more information about free resources for assistance or call 1-888-995-HOPE (4673).

Glossary of mortgage terms Adjustable-rate loans, also known as variable-rate loans, usually offer a lower initial interest rate than fixed-rate loans. The interest rate fluctuates over the life of the loan based on market conditions, but the loan agreement generally sets maximum and minimum rates. When interest rates rise, generally so do your loan payments; and when interest rates fall, your monthly payments may be lowered. Annual percentage rate (APR) is the cost of credit expressed as a yearly rate. The APR includes the interest rate, points, broker fees, and certain other credit charges that the borrower is required to pay. Conventional loans are mortgage loans other than those insured or guaranteed by a government agency such as the FHA (Federal Housing Administration), the VA (Veterans Administration), or the Rural Development Services (formerly known as Farmers Home Administration, or FmHA). Escrow is the holding of money or documents by a neutral third party prior to closing. It can also be an account held by the lender (or servicer) into which a homeowner pays money for taxes and insurance. Fixed-rate loans generally have repayment terms of 15, 20, or 30 years. Both the interest rate and the monthly payments (for principal and interest) stay the same during the life of the loan. The interest rate is the cost of borrowing money expressed as a percentage rate. Interest rates can change because of market conditions. Loan origination fees are fees charged by the lender for processing the loan and are often

expressed as a percentage of the loan amount. Lock-in refers to a written agreement guaranteeing a home buyer a specific interest rate on a home loan provided that the loan is closed within a certain period of time, such as 60 or 90 days. Often the agreement also specifies the number of points to be paid at closing. A mortgage is a document signed by a borrower when a home loan is made that gives the lender a right to take possession of the property if the borrower fails to pay off on the loan. Overages are the difference between the lowest available price and any higher price that the home buyer agrees to pay for the loan. Loan officers and brokers are often allowed to keep some or all of this difference as extra compensation. Points are fees paid to the lender for the loan. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. Points are usually paid in cash at closing. In some cases, the money needed to pay points can be borrowed, but doing so will increase the loan amount and the total costs. Private mortgage insurance (PMI) protects the lender against a loss if a borrower defaults on the loan. It is usually required for loans in which the down payment is less than 20 percent of the sales price or, in a refinancing, when the amount financed is greater than 80 percent of the appraised value. Thrift institution is a general term for savings banks and savings and loan associations. Transaction, settlement, or closing costs may include application fees; title examination, abstract of title, title insurance, and property survey fees; fees for preparing deeds, mortgages, and settlement documents; attorneys’ fees; recording fees; and notary, appraisal, and credit report fees. Under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, the borrower receives a good faith estimate of closing costs at the time of application or within three days of application. The good faith estimate lists each expected cost either as an amount or a range. Source: Looking for the Best Mortgage,

Real estate appraisers estimate a home’s value in a specific housing market, usually on the basis of sales of nearby or comparable homes. Often, a seller’s price is established by an appraisal. Lenders require an appraisal before they can determine the amount of money they will loan you.

Do not be surprised if appraisals (seller’s and buyer’s) are different. While both may be based on comparable sales, market conditions do change, sometimes from day to day. If the appraised value is lower than the agreed-upon purchase price, a contingency clause gives you the right to renegotiate the sale price or even to withdraw your offer.

A professional real estate appraisal is necessary to determine if the asking price is a fair one. An appraisal is an educated opinion of the current market value of a specific house within the past 60 days and determined by a set of factors. Making an intelligent offer to buy is difficult until you know the market value of the house. It is also difficult to know how large a mortgage loan will be granted by a lender because loans are based on a percentage of the appraised value and not on the asking price. You may choose to insert a contingency clause into your “offer to purchase contract” that the house must meet the appraised value or you have the right to withdraw your offer.

A qualified appraiser should have nothing to gain or lose from a sale and works only for one party to the sale. Findings should be provided in writing and include: 1. An accurate description of the property. 2. A purpose statement for the appraisal. 3. All of the data and criteria used to determine value, including at least three comparable sales and costapproach figures. 4. A final estimated value.

You can have your own appraisal done. Look for an appraiser who is familiar with the community and is an independent appraiser with the initials MAI, MAI/RM, or ASA after his or her name. MAI stands for “Member, Appraisal Institute,” the American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers. RM added means “Residential Member” with at least five years of experience in residential, rather than commercial, real estate. ASA denotes membership in the American Society of Appraisers.

5. Any special conditions, such as an easement. 6. Appraiser’s certification and signature. The appraisal is usually paid for by the buyer and will be included in your closing costs. The cost of a complete appraisal of a three-bedroom, two-bath house could range between $250 to 275 for a conventional loan and $175 to 300 for a government-backed or financed loan.

If your loan will be financed by either the Department of Housing and Urban Renewal (HUD) or the Veteran’s Administration (VA), the appraiser will be selected by computer. Appraisals for one of these types of loans will be good for either type of financing.

Steps to buying a home Buying your home is an exciting experience and it may be the largest financial investment you will ever make. Taking the time to learn about the steps involved in the buying process will help ensure that you purchase a quality home at a price you can afford. There are seven basic steps to buying a home: Step 1. Prepare for home ownership • Begin by seeking homebuyer education. You can contact The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to find an approved provider of homebuyer education in your area. Visit the HUD website or call 800-569-4287. • Monitor your credit record. Get a free copy of your credit report and if necessary, take steps to improve your credit score. Your credit score is a key factor in determining the rate of interest that you will pay for your mortgage loan. Generally, a higher credit score will qualify you for a lower interest rate.

• Figure out what you can afford. It will save you time, energy, and money if you have a realistic picture of what you need and how much you can afford before you start shopping for a home. • Choose the type of home that fits your lifestyle, in a location that has the amenities and community services that you want. • Know your rights. You have the right to equal housing opportunities; disclosure of settlement costs; and protection from predatory lending practices. Your home mortgage will probably be the one of the largest loan contracts you ever sign. Take the time to know your rights before you start shopping for a home and a loan. Step 2. Shop for a loan • Comparison shop. Gather all the information you need to complete the mortgage loan application. Then compare the different types of mortgages that each lender offers and the

tradeoffs associated with each option. You may want to create a comparison chart to record and compare the terms of different loans and lenders. • You can avoid paying for private mortgage insurance if you have a down payment that equals at least 20 percent of the purchase price. • Learn about home buying programs in your state that can lower your costs and mortgage payment. • Get pre-qualified for a loan. When you are ready to make an offer, you will be in a better position to have your offer accepted if you are prequalified or preapproved for a loan. Step 3. Shop for a home • Know your housing priorities, including the type of structure, size, location, and community services that are important to you. • Decide whether you want to use the services of a realtor. Realtors are familiar with the housing market and can assist

you in finding the house that meets your needs. The seller generally pays the realtor’s commission to help sell the property, which means that the realtor will try to get the best sales price and terms for the seller. To get the best outcome for yourself, you may want to hire your own realtor to represent your interests as the buyer. • Know housing market trends before you start looking for a home. In a buyer’s market, there are a lot of homes for sale, with relatively few buyers, so sellers have to offer potential buyers additional incentives. In a seller’s market, there are a lot of buyers and relatively few homes, so sellers are likely to drive a hard bargain, and the home you want may be sold before you have a chance to make the offer. Step 4. Make an offer • Make an offer that is realistic. Offers are usually conditional on the home inspection (see step 5), appraisal, having a clear title, and final approval of the loan. • Provide an earnest money deposit. The earnest money deposit lets the seller know that you are serious about wanting to purchase the home. In most cases, if you retract your offer, the seller keeps the deposit. • Get pre-approved for a loan to give yourself a stronger negotiating position. • Negotiate the deal. When you make an offer, the interested seller usually will negotiate back and forth with you until you reach a joint agreement. Every point in the contract is negotiable, but it is usually best to know common practices and accepted standards in the negotiation of the contract before you start the process. Step 5. Get a home inspection • A home inspection report provides an in-depth and impartial evaluation of any problems with the property. Your realtor and lender will have suggestions regarding who to use. The charge for the inspection will be added to your closing costs unless the seller has agreed to pay for the report.

• When you make a written offer on a home, you need to insist that the contract state that the offer is contingent on a home inspection conducted by a qualified inspector. • If you are satisfied with the results of the inspection, then your offer can proceed, but be sure to negotiate and include, in writing, any financial adjustments, repairs or replacements that the seller agrees to make as a result of issues identified in the inspection report. Step 6. Get homeowners insurance • Learn what is covered by homeowner’s insurance and what type of policy to purchase. • Shop for a policy. Remember to consider flood and earthquake insurance if appropriate. • Know how to read the policy and file a claim. Step 7. Close the deal • The final step in the home buying process is called the “closing” or “settlement.” The closing usually takes place using the services of a settlement agent who oversees the transfer of the property from the seller to the buyer. • Prior to closing, you need to secure the services of a title company. The title company provides you with title insurance and often serves as the settlement agent. Title insurance protects you and the lender from claims by others against your new home. • The settlement agent will set

up escrow to manage the transfer of the property. All documents, deeds, titles, funds and conditions of the sale are collected in escrow and monitored by the settlement agent. When all of the conditions specified in escrow agreement have been met, you and the seller will be instructed to make an appointment to sign the paperwork that will finalize the closing. • Before you go to the closing, understand the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) and the protections that it offers you. Lenders are required to give you paperwork that outlines the costs you will incur in receiving the loan. These documents include the charges you will likely pay at closing and an estimate of your monthly mortgage payments, a Settlement Statement that details all closing costs, and a Truth-in-Lending Statement that outlines all of the specifics of the loan. • Prepare ahead for closing day. At closing, you will sign numerous papers that make the sale final. Make sure that you have a good idea of what the settlement costs should be so that you can check the paperwork for errors before you sign.

authority. All home buying professionals should be able to give you a clear idea of what they will do for you and how they will proceed. Some will put it in writing before you hire them. When a service cannot be summed up, ask to see samples of their work.

Buying a house can be confusing. Few people have the knowledge and experience needed to find, evaluate, and then buy a house without the help of various home buying professionals such as: real estate agents or brokers, home inspectors, appraisers, surveyors, attorneys, and mortgage lenders.

Always compare services and prices. Before using a business or individual, check the reputation of the firm or individual. Talk with people in your community who have used such a service recently and to local loan officers who may be able to make recommendations. Ask these important questions when

There is a big difference between professionals who can help you buy a house and those who can build or fix up a house. People who would not hesitate to question the qualifications or methods of a carpenter, plumber, mason, or landscaper are often reluctant to question the expertise or skill of other home buying professionals whose work is done on paper and not on the house.

searching for help: Exactly what will be included in your services? What will it cost? Who pays the bill? When will the work begin and how long will it take? What kind of guarantee will you provide? Source:

Home buyers, especially first-time buyers, often hesitate to ask questions. But remember, the only dumb question is the one that has not been asked. If a home buying professional cannot or will not give you a simple answer or appears offended by your questions, look for someone else to help you. If a home buying professional is put off by simple questions, imagine what will happen when you get to complicated ones! Beware of the tendency to be in awe of certain professionals, such as lawyers. Builders or contractors deal with physical products. When a carpenter builds a deck, you can examine the joists; when a roofer installs the roof, you can check the flashing. But most home buying professionals produce paperwork and opinions. There are no physical tests of quality. Without a questioning attitude, important decisions about your house purchase may rest on little more then the appearance of expertise and

Real estate professionals (Real Estate Broker, Realtor, Real Estate Agent) An efficient method of shopping for a house is to consult a real estate professional. How do you select one and what services can you expect? Try to find an experienced real estate professional who works primarily in the area in which you are interested and who has access to a computerized multiple-listing service (MLS). MLS is an automated system that generates a list of houses that match your requirements. There are some differences in what a broker, Realtor, or real estate agent can do for you.

and has a valid license to sell real estate. A Realtor is a licensed real estate broker or an associate holding active membership in a local real estate board affiliated with the National Association of Realtors. Membership in the Realtor organization is available only to real estate professionals who agree to subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics that goes beyond the requirements of license law. A real estate agent, associate, or salesperson can show property for sale on behalf of a seller, but may or

may not have a license to transact the sale and collect the sales commission. Real estate agents, associates, or salespersons must operate under the supervision of a licensed broker, and they receive a portion of the commission paid to the selling broker. A real estate professional brings together sellers and buyers. Always remember just who the real estate professional is working for. Real estate professionals have a financial, legal, and moral responsibility to the seller — not the buyer. In return for representing the seller, they receive a commission from the seller when the house is sold. Most commissions are a flat percentage of the home’s sale price, usually 6 to 7 percent. Because of the way the commission system works, real estate professionals want to sell homes quickly and at the highest possible prices. Buyer’s broker or agent The concept of using a buyer’s broker or agent is relatively new. There are pros and cons to this approach. The most obvious advantage is that the buyer’s broker or agent is legally obligated to negotiate the best possible price and terms for the buyer — not the seller. A buyer’s broker can help you locate potential houses to consider and determine the condition of the houses, such as water damage. They are particularly helpful in negotiating the sales contract and writing a purchase offer that favors your position. Finally, they may be able to give advice that the traditional real estate professional could not because his or her loyalty is to the seller. The main disadvantage to using a buyer’s broker or agent is that you will have to pay a fee or commission. This may be a flat fee, a percentage of the purchase price, an hourly fee, or a combination of the three. While the buyer is primarily responsible for paying the buyer’s broker or agent, often, with consent of the seller, the fee is paid by the

seller’s agent. You will be asked to sign an agreement that spells out exactly what you want the buyer’s broker or agent to do for you. In turn, you will be obligated to work with the buyer’s broker/agent for a specific time. Dual agency At times a real estate professional may become the representative of both a seller and a buyer — creating a dual agency situation. Dual agency situations often come about when one real estate firm has a relationship with two clients, one wanting to sell and the other wanting to buy. When this happens, the real estate professional is obligated to notify each client and to modify his or her actions to ensure that duties and obligations owed to each client do not come into conflict. Primarily this involves the real estate professional’s obligation to keep confidential the motives for buying or selling and other information obtained through the agency relationship with each client. This may limit the range of duties the real estate professional may perform for either party. Buyers or sellers should carefully consider the possible consequences of the “dual agency” relationship before agreeing to such representation. What a real estate professional can do for you A real estate professional can provide you with a broad range of services including the following: • Pre-qualify you so you know what you can afford. • Use your “wish list” to generate a computer printout of houses that meet your specifications. • Show you houses that meet your requirements. (Let the agent drive.) • Provide you with information about a community, including the prices and characteristics of houses in the area, the location of schools, property tax rates, unusual building code regulations, and availability of community



• Provide you with basic data about each property including zoning, lot and house size, age, systems, equipment, and utilities.

4. Do not sign anything without first reading the document carefully. For a major purchase, you should try to have the contract reviewed by your real estate attorney before signing.

• Present your offer to the seller. • Coordinate closing details. • Advise you regarding mortgage lenders, real estate attorneys, professional home inspectors, and title companies. When working with a real estate professional: 1. Never let another real estate professional show you a house that you have previously been shown. 2. If you are seriously interested in buying a house, don’t worry about wasting a real estate professional’s time by looking at too many houses. It’s in your best interest to look at as many houses as possible. A real estate person should not push you to make up your mind or make an offer on a house before you are ready. 3. Assume that anything you say to the listing agent or broker will be told to the sellers. The listing agent or broker represents the sellers and is legally obligated to represent their interest. You can put yourself at a disadvantage in negotiating a price if you have been too enthusiastic about a house on which you decide to make an

5. If you feel you are being steered to (or away from) particular neighborhoods, if the agent or broker continues to come up with excuses as to why a house is not available for viewing, or if he or she is hard to reach or doesn’t answer your calls about a certain house, you may want to check into the possibility that discrimination is involved. As you look for a house to buy, you will probably do a lot of driving around in neighborhoods you like or checking listings in your local paper. You may come across “for sale by owner” properties. Feel free to explore these houses on your own, even if you are already working with a real estate professional. The main advantage of a “for sale by owner” property is that the real estate agent’s commission will not be added onto the sales price, making these houses somewhat less expensive. However, take extra precautions to have the house inspected before you buy, and have an attorney advise you on drawing up the sales contract.

Looking for the best mortgage Shopping around for a home loan or mortgage will help you to get the best financing deal. A mortgage — whether it’s a home purchase, a refinancing, or a home equity loan — is a product, just like a car, so the price and terms may be negotiable. You’ll want to compare all the costs involved in obtaining a mortgage. Shopping, comparing, and negotiating may save you thousands of dollars. Obtain information from several lenders Home loans are available from several types of lenders — thrift institutions, commercial banks, mortgage companies, and credit unions. Different lenders may quote you different prices, so you should contact several lenders to make sure you’re getting the best price. You can also get a home loan through a mortgage broker. Brokers arrange transactions rather than lending money directly; in other words, they find a lender for you. A broker’s access to several lenders can mean a wider selection of loan products and terms from which you can choose. Brokers will generally contact several lenders regarding your application, but they are not obligated to find the best deal for you unless they have contracted with you to act as your agent. Consequently, you should consider contacting more than one broker, just as you should with banks or thrift institutions. Whether you are dealing with a lender or a broker may not always be clear. Some financial institutions operate as both lenders and brokers. And most brokers’ advertisements do not use the word “broker.” Therefore, be sure to ask whether a broker is involved. This information is important because brokers are usually paid a fee for their services that may be separate from and in addition to the lender’s origination or other fees. A broker’s compensation may be in the form of “points” paid at closing or as an add-on to your interest rate, or both. You

should ask each broker you work with how he or she will be compensated so that you can compare the different fees. Be prepared to negotiate with the brokers as well as the lenders. Obtain all important cost information Be sure to get information about mortgages from several lenders or brokers. Know how much of a downpayment you can afford, and find out all the costs involved in the loan. Knowing just the amount of the monthly payment or the interest rate is not enough. Ask for information about the same loan amount, loan term, and type of loan so that you can compare the information. The following information is important to get from each lender and broker: Rates • Ask each lender and broker for a list of its current mortgage interest rates and whether the rates being quoted are the lowest for that day or week. • Ask whether the rate is fixed or adjustable. Keep in mind that when interest rates for adjustable-rate loans go up, generally so does the monthly payment. • If the rate quoted is for an adjustable-rate loan, ask how your rate and loan payment will vary, including whether your loan payment will be reduced when rates go down.

Points Points are fees paid to the lender or broker for the loan and are often linked to the interest rate; usually the more points you pay, the lower the rate. • Check your local newspaper for information about rates and points currently being offered. • Ask for points to be quoted to you as a dollar amount — rather than just as the number of points — so that you will actually know how much you will have to pay. Fees A home loan often involves many fees, such as loan origination or underwriting fees, broker fees, and transaction, settlement, and closing costs. Every lender or broker should be able to give you an estimate of its fees. Many of these fees are negotiable. Some fees are paid when you apply for a loan (such as application and appraisal fees), and others are paid at closing. In some cases, you can borrow the money needed to pay these fees, but doing so will increase your loan amount and total costs. “No cost” loans are sometimes available, but they usually involve higher rates. • Ask what each fee includes. Several items may be lumped into one fee. • Ask for an explanation of any fee you do not understand.

• Ask about the loan’s annual percentage rate (APR). The APR takes into account not only the interest rate but also points, broker fees, and certain other credit charges that you may be required to pay, expressed as a yearly rate.

Down payments and private mortgage insurance Some lenders require 20 percent of the home’s purchase price

as a down payment. However, many lenders now offer loans that require less than 20 percent down — sometimes as little as 5 percent on conventional loans. If a 20 percent down payment is not made, lenders usually require the home buyer to purchase private mortgage insurance (PMI) to protect the lender in case the home buyer fails to pay. When government-assisted programs such as FHA (Federal Housing Administration), VA (Veterans Administration), or Rural Development Services are available, the down payment requirements may be substantially smaller. • Ask about the lender’s requirements for a down payment, including what you need to do to verify that funds for your down payment are available. • Ask your lender about special programs it may offer. If PMI is required for your loan,

difference between the lowest available price for a loan product and any higher price that the borrower agrees to pay is an overage.

Credit problems? Still shop, compare, and negotiate When overages occur, they are built into the prices quoted to consumers. They can occur in both fixed and variable-rate loans and can be in the form of points, fees, or the interest rate. Whether quoted to you by a loan officer or a broker, the price of any loan may contain overages. Have the lender or broker write down all the costs associated with the loan. Then ask if the lender or broker will waive or reduce one or more of its fees or agree to a lower rate or fewer points. You’ll want to make sure that the lender or broker is not agreeing to lower one fee while raising another or to lower the rate while raising points. There’s no harm in asking lenders or brokers if they can give better terms than the original ones they quoted or than those you have found elsewhere.

• Ask what the total cost of the insurance will be. • Ask how much your monthly payment will be when including the PMI premium. • Ask how long you will be required to carry PMI. Obtain the best deal that you can Once you know what each lender has to offer, negotiate for the best deal that you can. On any given day, lenders and brokers may offer different prices for the same loan terms to different consumers, even if those consumers have the same loan qualifications. The most likely reason for this difference in price is that loan officers and brokers are often allowed to keep some or all of this difference as extra compensation. Generally, the

characteristics nor be charged more for a loan or offered less favorable terms based on such characteristics.

Once you are satisfied with the terms you have negotiated, you may want to obtain a written lock-in from the lender or broker. The lock-in should include the rate that you have agreed upon, the period the lock-in lasts, and the number of points to be paid. A fee may be charged for locking in the loan rate. This fee may be refundable at closing. Lock-ins can protect you from rate increases while your loan is being processed; if rates fall, however, you could end up with a less favorable rate. Should that happen, try to negotiate a compromise with the lender or broker.

Don’t assume that minor credit problems or difficulties stemming from unique circumstances, such as illness or temporary loss of income, will limit your loan choices to only high-cost lenders. If your credit report contains negative information that is accurate, but there are good reasons for trusting you to repay a loan, be sure to explain your situation to the lender or broker. If your credit problems cannot be explained, you will probably have to pay more than borrowers who have good credit histories. But don’t assume that the only way to get credit is to pay a high price. Ask how your past credit history affects the price of your loan and what you would need to do to get a better price. Take the time to shop around and negotiate the best deal that you can. Whether you have credit problems or not, it’s a good idea to review your credit report for accuracy and completeness before you apply for a loan. To order a copy of your credit report, contact: Equifax: 800-685-1111 TransUnion: 800-916-8800 Experian: 800-682-7654 Source:

Remember: Shop, Compare, Negotiate When buying a home, remember to shop around, to compare costs and terms, and to negotiate for the best deal. Your local newspaper and the Internet are good places to start shopping for a loan. You can usually find information both on interest rates and on points for several lenders. Since rates and points can change daily, you’ll want to check your newspaper often when shopping for a home loan. But the newspaper does not list the fees, so be sure to ask the lenders about them. Fair lending is required by law The Equal Credit Opportunity Act prohibits lenders from discriminating against credit applicants in any aspect of a credit transaction on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age, whether all or part of the applicant’s income comes from a public assistance program, or whether the applicant has in good faith exercised a right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in residential real estate transactions on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. Under these laws, a consumer cannot be refused a loan based on these

(NAPSI) — When it’s time for spring-cleaning, remember to include your car. Cleaning your vehicle inside and out prevents the buildup of damaging chemicals and dirt, reduces the potential for rust from road salt and helps ensure proper visibility needed for safe driving. How to clean your car To get started, remove any clutter from inside the car, including items that have accumulated in the

trunk that can add extra weight and reduce fuel efficiency. The next step is to thoroughly clean and vacuum the interior and wash the windows. When washing the outside, include the tires, wheels, underside and fenders to eliminate any road salt or grime. Wheels and tires should be cleaned with a mitt other than the one used to wash the body. This will avoid contaminating

the vehicle’s paint with debris from the wheels and tires. Wash in the shade and with a product sold specifically for cars. Wash one section at a time, thoroughly rinsing away the soap as you go. Work your way down toward the front, sides and rear of the vehicle. Clean the fenders and bumpers last since they will have the most dirt and grime that can contaminate the

wash mitt. Give the car a final rinse: Remove the spray nozzle from the hose and let the water cascade down the surfaces of the vehicle. To avoid water spots, dry your car with a chamois or other product made for drying. The last step is to wax the car. This should be done out of direct sun-

light and every six months. It goes a long way toward protecting the vehicle’s finish and makes subsequent washes easier. If you found any stone chips, rust or other problem spots while washing your vehicle, the experts at the Car Care Council recommend having these taken care of immediately

to prevent further damage. The Council is the source of information for the “Be Car Care Aware” consumer education campaign promoting the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers. For further facts and tips, visit



CALL 315-794-5498 Keeping your vehicle clean protects your valuable investment. The task takes very little money or effort but provides huge returns.
