Featuring Certified | Energy Star Homes

How New Homes Earn the ENERGY STAR

To earn the ENERGY STAR, a home must meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Homes achieve this level of performance through a combination of energy-efficient improvements, including:

• Effective Insulation Systems • High-Performance Windows • Tight Construction and Ducts • Efficient Heating and cooling Equipment • ENERGY STAR Certified Lighting and Appliances To ensure that a home meets ENERGY STAR guidelines, third-party verification by a certified Home Energy Rater (or equivalent) is required. This Rater works closely with the builder throughout the construction process to help determine the needed energy-saving equipment and construction techniques and conduct required on-site diagnostic testing and inspections to document that the home is eligible to earn the ENERGY STAR label. Construction Example: Cape with all the bells and whistles and a two car attached garage $349,900. PROUDLY BUILT BY: AJ Sousa Construction

Understanding how credit affects


If you're thinking about buying a home, you should also be thinking about your credit. The first step in the home buying process is understanding your credit. When you apply for a mortgage, lenders will review your credit report. Your credit report is a history of how you've managed your finances: it's a record of money you've borrowed and your history of paying it back. Your credit report is a record of all your credit transactions whenever and wherever you've used credit to purchase goods and services.Your credit will have a big influence on whether or not you can get a mortgage, the terms of that loan, and the interest rate. If you have good credit, you may have a much wider range of mortgage offers with lower rates. Your credit score WILL directly affect your interest rate.

So how do you better understand credit?

Be aware of how important your credit history is to the process. Establish good credit and protect your credit. Look at your credit report and credit scores. Make sure you correct any mistakes


July 20122013 | January

on your credit report right away.

Credit Reports

Your credit report should accurately represent your credit history. From the moment you first apply for a loan or a credit card, you likely have a credit history. Credit-related transactions appear on your credit report, including your current debts, paid debts, and payment histories. Your credit report is compiled by three private companies: Experian, and TransUnion. These companies sell your credit report to banks and other creditors so they can review you’re past credit history. Your credit report includes: • A list of debts and a history of how you've paid them. • This can include credit cards, car loans, and student loans. • Any bills referred to a collection agency. • This can include phone and medical bills. • Public record information. • This can include tax liens and bankruptcies. • Inquiries made about your creditworthiness.


An inquiry is made when you apply for credit. Your credit report can also show if you were given credit based on the inquiry. Your credit report is continuously updated, which is why you should always know what it looks like. In recent years, some unscrupulous creditors have not reported positive credit information on a timely basis. You want to make sure positive information is reflected accurately, so check your credit often.

Credit Scores

A credit score is a single number that helps lenders and others decide how likely you are to repay your debts. One common credit score is a FICO score. (FICO stands for Fair Isaac & Co. Credit, the company that developed the scoring method.) FICO scores range from 300 to 850 points.When you apply for a mortgage, your credit score is evaluated. Your credit score may also be a factor used to determine the mortgage interest rate.Your credit score is based on several types of information contained in your credit report: • Your payment history. Late payments will decrease your credit score. • The amount of debt you owe. If your credit cards are at their limits, this can lower your credit score - even if the amount you owe isn't large. Similarly, consolidating your debts onto one card can also lower your score. • How long you've used credit. Your credit history is important. If you show a pattern of managing your credit wisely, keeping credit card balances low, and paying your bills on time, your credit score will be positively affected. • How often you apply for new credit and take on new debt. If you've applied for several credit cards at the same time, your credit score can go down. • The types of credit you currently use. This includes credit cards, retail accounts, installment loans, finance company accounts, and mortgages. Knowing your credit standing before you apply will make the mortgage process a lot smoother for you.

Turning On The Heat

Renewability, environmental impact, technology and cost stability are today’s real considerations in heating your home.

Traditional home heating options continue to be sound choices for home heating but with so many alternatives today and so many technological advancements in this area homeowners need to stay up-to-date on the latest information and alternatives. Oil, propane and natural gas have long been the primary alternatives for home heating. These fossil fuels for years were widely available, reasonably inexpensive to install and operate, fairly cost stable, reliable and safe. Recently, significant technology improvements in thermostats, burners and other equipment have made these fuels even more efficient and cleaner burning than ever before. Smart, traditional fuel companies have created consumer-friendly budgeting programs, have combined service and fuel delivery agreements, and auto refill programs

56 | January July 20122013

that help mitigate cost variances and make traditional fuels very consumer-friendly and an easy choice. Consumers are educating themselves on other alternatives in home heating. Some are motivated by their own personal green movement and hope to reduce their carbon foot print, others are seeking more cost stability, many just want to know their alternatives and seek to reduce their annual costs. Today, there are numerous choices in home heating, everything from the traditional, home heating oil, propane and natural gas, to clean burning stove alternatives, pellet fuels and highly efficient geothermal options. Over the next 8 pages, we walk you through some of the best options for home heating and let suppliers in your backyard discuss with you the benefits of each.

Five surprising facts about fireplaces by Kirley Masonry

When it comes to creating ambiance and warmth in a home, nothing can beat a fireplace. But are you aware that the right fireplace or stove can also help reduce your heating costs? Or that your existing fireplace’s efficiency can be boosted significantly by installing an insert, and for less money than you might think? Here are five facts about fireplaces and stoves that may surprise you: 1. You can conserve energy, live a greener lifestyle and combat volatile heating costs with a high efficiency fireplace or stove. Do you use every room in your house every day? If not, try zone heating the areas where you spend the most time with an efficient fireplace or stove. It will cut down on the amount of fuel consumed by your furnace and can reduce home heating bills by 20-40 percent, according to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association. Simply turn down the central thermostat and let the fireplace heat where you live. This works whether your fireplace is fueled by natural gas, liquid propane, wood, pellets or other materials. Renewable fuels like cord wood, pellets and other plant-derived materials are excellent sources of heat. The key is burning them in a high efficiency fireplace or stove, which makes the process much easier than it was for our grandparents. In pellet stoves a single 40-pound bag of pellets can produce heat for up to 24 hours. The amount of emissions and ash generated by these units has been dramatically reduced. 58

July 20122013 | January

2. A fireplace can be installed in your existing home without the hassles of adding a traditional chimney. Don’t have a fireplace? In most homes, a beautiful and efficient free-standing pellet stove can be vented to the outdoors via a single pipe that runs through the side of the house to the outdoors. Free-standing pellet stoves have brought warmth and ambience to millions of homes. 3. Your inefficient wood burning fireplace can be transformed into a powerful and beautiful heat producer. If you have a masonry-built wood burning fireplace that is drafty and inefficient, consider updating it with an energy efficient fireplace insert. Professional installation can be completed within four to six hours, and it could make your fireplace up to 85 percent more efficient. 4. You can control the heat produced by today’s fireplaces. Many fireplaces and stoves can be thermostatically controlled – you decide how much heat you want and change it as desired. 5. Fireplace design is pushing traditional boundaries. If you prefer a traditional fireplace that burns real wood, stove inserts are a great option with simplistic beauty and elegance. Glass windows showcase a view of the flames. There’s nothing better than cozying up to a warm fireplace. Investigate the possibilities at

Geothermal Comfort (Heating & Cooling)

An Investment in Savings

Geothermal heating and cooling systems use the stable temperature of the earth to heat or cool your home. The energy of the earth, in the form of heat, is used to regulate the temperature in the home, heating it in the cooler months and cooling it in the warmer months. And, the best part, because the energy source is the earth itself, it is clean, free and renewable. Geothermal systems transfer heat from your home to the earth in the cooling mode, or from the earth to our home in the heating mode. Water is used as the heat transfer medium through a closed loop piping system buried in the ground. By using this stable thermal source, geothermal heat provide energy efficient comfort year round. Overall, Geothermal technology offers the highest cooling and heating efficiencies of any system available today. Geothermal systems have always been the leader in low operating costs but recently are due even more consideration due to the unstable nature of other fuel costs.

The Geothermal System


July 20122013 | January

Driven by a Geothermal Pump, the system is extremely efficient because the energy come directly from the earth and the pump only uses electricity to move heat, not to produce it. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, geothermal systems are, “the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and cost-effective space conditioning systems available today.” Most systems also include a hot water generator, which diverts a portion of the supplied heat to the domestic water heater and supplies a portion of a family’s hot water needs at a very low cost. Geothermal systems transfer heat from your house to the earth in the cooling mode, or from the earth to your home in the heating mode. The Geothermal pump moves heat energy from one place to another. It removes heat energy stored in the earth and the earth’s ground water and transfers it to the home in the heating mode, and reverses that process in the cooling mode. The homeowner can change from heating mode to cooling mode with the flick of a switch A geothermal system uses a continuous loop of special buried plastic pipe as a heat exchanger. The pipe is connected to the indoor heat pump to form a sealed, underground loop through which water is circulated. There are several design variations of open and closed loop systems, each geothermal system is unique and subject to the conditions of property the system will be installed on.


The Geothermal Benefits

Geothermal heat pump operates using electric power. Electric is one of the most stable cost heat sources and is predicted to be stable cost for the next 20 years and beyond. A duct system distributes warmed or cooled air throughout the home, driven by the energy transfer of the geothermal heat pump.

•O ffers the highest cooling and heating efficiencies of any system • Environmentally clean •C ost effective, the leader in low operating costs •A heating and cooling system all in one •U ses the earth’s energy to heat or cool your home •P rojected to be cost stable for the decades

Affordable, Efficient, Ambiance. Go Green with Pellet Fuels by South Shore Wood Pellets

A sensible alternative to the more expensive and environmentally harmful traditional home heating fuels is green friendly pellet fuels. Pellet fuels are made of wood waste, from forest thinning by-products and other biomass ingredients. The production of pellet fuels diverts millions of tons of waste from landfills and turns it into a clean, renewable energy source. The burning of pellet fuels reduces greenhouse gases emitted in the environment when compared to the burning of home heating oils, propane or natural gas. Over the past several years, pellet fuels have been an extremely cost stable home heating alternative, and pellet fuels are currently used throughout North America. According to data from the Pellet Fuels Institute, pellets are a limitless fuel source since they are produce from wood waste, as well as from forest thinning by-products and other biomass ingredients. North American pellet fuels are produced in manufacturing facilities in Canada and the United States. 62

July 20122013 | January

Currently, there are 1.5 million homes in the United States using wood pellets for their home heating, in freestanding stoves, fireplace inserts and even in furnaces. Pellet fuel for heating can also be found in such large-scale environments as schools, prisons and other large capacity facilities. Pellet stoves pollute less than the EPA-certified wood burning stoves and in fact, less than any other heating appliance that burns solid fuels. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends that traditional fireplaces be replaced with non-wood burning stoves like pellet stoves. A properly vented, installed and maintained wood pellet stove will have little effect on your indoor air quality and will have the least impact on outdoor air quality, as they emit much less pollution than traditional home heating alternatives. This is evident when comparing the smoke coming out of the stove, the wood pellet stoves are so efficient in the burning process that the smoke emitted from their vents

is clear as compared to other home heating alternatives who’s smoke may be grey or black. Their efficient burning has an added benefit to the homeowner, allowing wood pellet stoves to be vented outdoors through a pipe in an outside wall instead of through a chimney. As a result, wood pellet stoves can be installed almost anywhere in the home. An important point of note is pellet stoves do require electricity to work but require a very nominal amount of electric energy. Pellet stoves come in several designs, are sturdy, reliable and offer a safe and efficient alternative to traditional home heating options. Pellet fuels are manufactured from construction waste products and keep millions of tons of wood waste out of landfills yearly. Pellet fuels are clean burning, highly efficient, cost stable and the perfect choice for the environmentally conscious homeowner.

The Pellet Advantage • Diverts millions of tons of waste from Landfills • Renewable & limitless fuel source • Cost stable, low cost home heating alternative • Clean burning and efficient • In over 800,000 homes in the U.S.

Kitchen & Bath Remodels

Quality materials, Design & Installation are the keys to increasing the value of you your home. By Humphrey’s Building Supply

Two of the most popular home remodels are kitchen and bathroom improvements. Both remodels can represent a substantial return on investment to the homeowner by increasing a homes value, improving the marketability of the home, and most importantly improving the living experience. On average the typical return on investment is 100% for kitchen improvements and 120% for bath renovations. Both increase a home’s chances of a quick sale and represent a major selling feature to potential buyers The kitchen, known as the heart and soul of the home, is one of the most important rooms in any house and is of keen interest to potential buyers. A clean, well-designed, properly installed kitchen with modern appliances and quality elements can set the potential buyer’s perception of the home. In the buyer’s eyes, “a quality kitchen is a quality home”. Realtors know an impressive kitchen can sell a house quicker than nearly any other aspect of the home. Bathrooms are another big selling point; the number of bathrooms as well as the quality of the rooms both count. Homes that have two or more bathrooms sell faster than homes with only one bathroom. Needless to say, a luxurious master or main bathroom that demonstrates quality design and craftsmanship adds value to and enjoyment of the home. Kitchen and bathroom remodels can repre-

sent a significant investment for homeowners, but when the remodel is done with quality materials, design and workmanship they are also far more likely to return on the homeowner’s investment and improve the living experience in the home. Humphrey’s Keys to a Quality Kitchen or Bath Remodel:


• Use an experienced, professional kitchen/bath consultant • Consider the basic room functions, for instance, the kitchen’s primary functions are food preparation, storage, and clean up • Discuss in detail your expectations of your room remodel • Be flexible towards suggestions and improvements that the design professional will bring to the conversation


• Incorporate the classic triangle design (in the kitchen the sink, refrigerator, and stove arranged in a triangular pattern) • Avoid unnecessary steps, ensure ease of movement • Include fixture updates in the design • Think long-term, you or the next home buyer will enjoy this kitchen for another 25 years


• Keep your design, materials and installation with one company their knowledge of the product, remodel schedule and consistency of purpose will save time and money

• Use an experienced, quality installer who’s workmanship you are familiar with • Install a granite or natural stone counter top – they improve appearance and usability and can be a strong selling point

Guess what, 2013 will be the time to move on buying a home. The residential real estate market has been on the mend across most parts of southern New England. Tight inventories, low mortgage rates, first-time homebuyers, and pent up demand have contributed to prices finally stabilizing and even increasing in some areas. That said, in Washington, DC, a line in the sand has been drawn. On January 1st, the country could go over the “fiscal cliff” if the Republican caucus and President Obama cannot reach a deal over tax revenues and budget cuts. Hence, the mortgage deduction is on the table. If this is cut or limited in some way, your ability to afford a home.

Victoria Doran is the President of the Rhode Island Association of Realtors and a Broker and REALTOR® with Coldwell Banker Residential Mortgage, Barrington, RI. "We are lobbying aggressively to prevent Congress from eliminating the mortgage deduction,” says Doran. “Yet, there's more to a home than a mortgage payment and a home has always been a good investment for the long term."

South Florida is on the Move By NEHL Staff

As the market continued to move in a positive direction in 2012 all indicators in South Florida are saying there has never been a better time to buy here. While prices are now showing steady increases the market is still ripe for acquiring property at 50% of 2006 market high prices. We doubt that there is a better deal anywhere in the United States in 2013 for real estate in a very sought after region. The south west coast of Florida offers a quality of life and amenities unmatched by any other location in the country. With such a large percentage of northeast populations reaching retirement age in the next 5 years the investment in South Florida real estate becomes even stronger. Single-family homes in much of the region have tremendous value in the $200-$350,000. range and condominiums at some of the best quality developments are available starting at just over $100,000. 78 | January 2013

Market timing is everything in real estate today and if you wish to own in a warm and tropical location then south Florida and Collier County may be the best and most opportune location on the globe. Barron’s recently ran a piece in there investment magazine telling its readers, it’s a great time to buy in Florida. As reported By Barron’s Magazine Mike Morgan: “At the moment, Florida offers an unusual window of opportunity for individual buyers and investors. Interest rates are low, prices are down by 50% or more, and sellers are anxious. The picture is a bit clouded by the South Americans and Europeans, who fear currency collapses in their homelands and are buying without regard for quality, maintenance costs or resale value. Russians flush with cash are purchasing indiscriminately in South Florida. Canadians, flush with the very strong Canadian dollar, are also buying, but they are far more discerning. “
