Organize Your Life:

Custom Closet Geeks has the Solution and it works! Organization is the art of having things in the right places in life so we may have easy access to them. A simple premise but in reality the lack of organization accounts for most of the wasted time in our lives. While it’s true that our phones and computers have organized our contacts, schedules, workflow and communications our living and working spaces have lagged well behind the trend. I am perplexed why every home that 38

NEHomeLife.com | May 2015

has been built in the last 100 years makes little or no provisions for organization and function to accommodate all the things that we acquire in a life. So lets see, I am going to pay $350,000 for this great house, but there is no where to put anything I own where I can see it and have easy access to it. With all the other pressures of time in life you would think that seeing and finding things with ease would be a first priority for all of us each and every day.

Programs for Homebuyers by Peter DeFusco

Many federal, state and local agencies administer programs to assist people who need help buying a home. Some of these are loan programs; others provide assistance with down payments or with building a home. Federal Housing Administration (FHA) mortgage loans These mortgages, administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), are government-insured loans that offer very low down payments, which may be borrowed from relatives. Rates are often lower, and qualifying is easier because credit is not as large a factor. There is, however, a cap on how much can be borrowed. Processing may take longer and appraisal guidelines may be strict; the house must be worth the selling price. FHA mortgages are not restricted to first-time borrowers.

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Home Loan Guaranty Service VA mortgages are government-guaranteed loans available to veterans of the armed services, those currently on active duty or in the reserves, and widows or widowers of veterans. Like FHA loans, VA loans have guidelines that allow more people to qualify. In addition, some VA loans require no down payment at all. There are limits on the size of VA loans, but usually they are large enough to cover the purchase of moderately priced homes across the country

U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development Housing & Community Facilities program This program provides a variety of financing for low- and very-low income buyers in rural 76 44

areas. If you are a farmer or live in a rural area, ask mortgage lenders if you may qualify. The Rural Housing Service (RHS) provides a number of homeownership opportunities to rural Americans, as well as programs for home renovation and repair. RHS also makes financing available to elderly, disabled, or lowincome rural residents of multi-unit housing buildings to ensure they are able to make rent payments. Direct loan and grant income limits are listed by state on the program's Web site.

Reverse mortgages (Home Equity Conversion Mortgages)
 Designed specifically for older borrowers who have substantial equity in their homes, this type of mortgage can be used to increase the monthly income of retired or elderly borrowers. It enables them to use the equity in their home without selling or moving. The owner receives a monthly payment that slowly reduces the equity. However, the loan must be repaid if the borrower sells, moves, or dies, which may reduce the value of equity available to heirs.

Energy Efficient Mortgage (EEM) program FHA's Energy Efficient Mortgage program helps homebuyers or homeowners save money on utility bills by enabling them to finance the cost of adding energy efficiency features to new or existing housing as part of their FHA-insured home purchase or refinancing mortgage. FHA EEMs provide


mortgage insurance for a person to purchase or refinance a principal residence and incorporate the cost of energy efficient improvements into the mortgage. The borrower does not have to qualify for the additional money and does not make a down payment on it. The mortgage loan is funded by a lending institution, such as a mortgage company, bank, or savings and loan association, and the mortgage is insured by HUD.

NMLS#616522

HUD’s HOME program HOME provides grants to states and localities. Communities use this money, often working with local nonprofit groups, to fund a wide range of activities that build, buy, and/or rehabilitate affordable housing for rent or homeownership or to provide direct rental assistance to low-income people. The eligibility of households for HOME assistance varies. For rental housing and rental assistance, at least 90 percent of benefiting families must have incomes that are no more than 60 percent of the HUD-adjusted median family income for the area. HOME income limits are published each year by HUD.

Local government programs 
Other special programs are administered by state and local housing finance administrations, state and local government agencies or even private organizations. Home buyer education programs are offered through lenders and mortgage insurance companies. With some of these programs, a lower down payment will be allowed after completion of a home buyer education course, which can be offered online or in a lender's office.

Other special loan programs
 You may be able to obtain reduced interest rates through bond money programs. Your lender should be familiar with any bond money programs that are available in your area. State or local agencies issue bonds and use the proceeds to help qualify loan applications. Be sure to ask your lender what other programs are available in your area especially for first-time home-buyers. Call me for a free no obligation consultation at anytime to review your options.

Homes With History Southern New England has great Historic Homes By Timothy Branco

We all take for granted that our region here in southern New England was where our country began. Simply speaking we are literally living in the birthplace of our country surrounded every day by some of the most historic homes anywhere in the nation. Southern New England has more historic residences that date back hundreds of years than just about anywhere.The cities and towns of Bristol County and Plymouth County Massachusetts and neighboring Rhode Island regions are rich in historic homes and the choices are endless. SEEKING THE PAST AT GREAT PRICES Southern New England is prime territory with grand specimens of Colonial, Federal, and Victorian architecture that are far less expensive than almost any other historic regions surrounding major metropolitan U.S. markets. In addition our region offers a more rural lifestyle with convenient access to two of the largest capitol cities in New England, Boston, MA and Providence, RI. Older homes have significant advantages over newer constructed homes. European craftsman built most of the old homes in our region with an attention to detail not found today in home construction. Construction materials consisted of the very finest hardwoods, oak, cherry, walnut,

value of a historic residence that was destroyed by fire. The home was 2400 Sq Ft with a center chimney that provided 5 fireplaces throughout the home. The homes original cost in 1715 was determined by building records to be less than $5,000. The present owners had purchased the home in 1965 for $75,000. The home was rebuilt under the direction of the local historic society using all the original hardwoods and stonework. The final finished cost of the home was 1.8 million dollars for the full restoration and took 15 months. In a building and construction study in 1988

THE COST OF REPLICATING If you ask a builder to construct your new home out of these materials today you would easily pay over $500,000 for a moderately sized residence without the land. The quality, craftsmanship and design build capabilities of the past are not possible in today’s marketplace. Labor costs make it literally impossible to replicate the homes of the past. Imagine, today the cost of 5 men working on an elaborate winding, hand carved staircase for 3-4

a Wentworth University professor determined the weight differential of a 250 year old home compared to a brand new home of the same size built today. An average size new home using plywood construction weighed 25 tons or 50,000 lbs. The same size home built 100 years ago a home weighed over 100 ton or 200,000 lbs, 4 times heavier than its modern counterpart. It is no wonder they are able to weather better and stand up to the harshest New England winters and hurricanes over time with little or no significant damage. With the weather extremes we are experiencing over the last several years this is even more significant when looking at buying a home that will stand the test of time.

properties; you should check with staff there to determine if your house has been inventoried as part of a comprehensive survey of historic resources in your community. Historical documentary research that you can do yourself includes reviewing deed and probate information, tax records, city directories, and local histories. Your local library or historical society may also have other pertinent information, such as historic photographs or maps.

for signs of cracks or shifting. Also detect and test for mold in the home, as it can be a sign of a weak foundation and other problems. You'll likely need to get a thorough home inspection service to tell you for sure if the foundation is solid, but if you see signs of crumbling or cracks then it's best to move on to the next house. 2. How old is the electric wiring? Many old homes still have the original knob and tube wiring. Although it works, it can pose a fire hazard, especially in the attic (where it's likely to be covered in insulation). Evidence of the knob and tube wiring will be in the basement. If the home's wiring is outdated, then make sure you consider the cost of updating it. 3. How old is the plumbing? If the house still has the original cast-iron pipes, then you

5 TIPS FOR BUYING HISTORIC HOMES 1. Is the foundation solid? Old homes often have foundation issues, which are incredibly costly to fix. When you're looking at a historic home, leave the living room and bedrooms for last. The most important information you need to know is down in the basement. First, check the foundation

might need to replace them eventually because of mineral build up, corrosion, or leaks. Make sure you closely inspect any exposed pipes in the basement to see if they're in working order. Mineral buildup in the pipes won't be noticeable until you're trying to take a shower and realize that very little water is coming out. 4. How is the house heated? Old radiators may add character, but they're an expensive way to heat the house. Make sure you carefully analyze how much fuel oil you'll need to heat the house and stay warm in the winter. If the home has central heat, then check to see how old the furnace is. 5. How's the roof? Replacing a roof is one of the most expensive home repairs you'll make. I replaced mine recently, and I could have taken a

plush Euro-vacation on what I spent. Make sure you check the roof and the attic carefully for leaks. If the roof is more than 10 to 15 years old, then realize you might need to replace it sometime during your ownership of the house. Here are a just a few great historic homes that are available today in Southern New England. If you truly want to own a par t of history than there is so much to choose from in periods, styles and designs. One of today’s most popular trends is the transformation of older multi- family-homes back to the original single-family status. Many of these proper ties are the very best deals in the market and when restored are amazing homes. By calling a realtor you can get a complete list of what is available in all areas.
