It's here. Unemployed homeowners can now receive loans that will help them avoid foreclosure, thanks to a new program by the Obama administration. After delays and efforts to terminate the program, the $1 billion Emergency Homeowners' Loan Program–established when the Dodd-Frank financial overhaul bill

was enacted in the summer of 2010–is now ready to help unemployed homeowners to continue to make their mortgage payments. The program will allow qualified unemployed homeowners to receive zero-interest loans of up to $50,000 and for up to two years. The loan can be forgiven if the homeowner stay in the house five years. Requirements include being at least three months behind on your

payments but also having a reasonable ability to resume payments within the two-year period. Additionally, homeowners have to have had a 15% decrease in income. However, they must have been able to pay for their mortgage prior to the income drop. They can't own a second home and the property has to be their primary residence. Included in this latest emergency relief effort are: Pennsylvania ($106

propped up by very low interest rates, investor demand, and some of the most affordable home prices ever seen. But experts say that buyers who are purchasing to live in the home will help stimulate the housing recovery process. In some markets, like Phoenix, it's been a 50-50 split between live-ins and investors.

Some of the factors holding back traditional buyers from dominating the market are, of course, stricter requirements for lending, unemployment, or lack of sufficient work, and uncertain financial times. Live-in homebuyers tend to come from one of two groups: first-time or move-up buyers. With the recent marketplace and economic conditions being so unstable, and a decline in home value, the move-up buyers have not been very active. But

some real estate experts are seeing an emergence of a new buyer group: lower-income residents. This group can now afford to buy because the home prices, in some areas, have declined significantly. However, in many areas, home investors are vying for those same properties, creating competition. In a perhaps surprising move, some home auctions, where investors can typically scoop up a great deal, are now excluding investors.

A California-based firm is helping to get rid of all foreclosed Arizona homes for which the previous owners had U.S. Federal Housing Administration-backed loans. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's policy gives traditional buyers at least 30 days to bid on new listings first. Then the properties may be opened up to investors.

Mortgage Reform and Anti-Predatory Lending Act provisions in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Among the most discussed provisions is one that would create a Qualified Residential Mortgage (QRM), one that will be viewed as a loan offering a lower risk of default. Because of the low risk, borrowers who qualify for a QRM will pay less than for a mortgage that is not

designated as a QRM, but it won't be easy to land the loan. According to the proposed definition borrowers would have to: • Put at least 20 percent down to buy a home. • Have at least 25 percent in equity to refinance. • Have at least 30 percent equity to do a cash-out refinance. • Have house payments that don't exceed 28 percent of before-tax income, and total monthly debt pay-

ments (house, credit cards, auto, student loans) couldn't exceed 36 percent of beforetax income. • Not have been 60 days delinquent on any debt payments in the last two years. For many borrowers, the 20 percent down payment alone could be insurmountable -without solid saving habits. First you'll have to change your thinking.

ance, property taxes, homeowner association dues and other costs of owning a home. Here are some solid strategies to get you started. • Create a budget. A budget doesn't just reveal where your money goes. It lets you see where you can cut back and divert money into savings. • Organize. That's right. Sell all that stuff you never use. Sell all that stuff that won't be a good fit for your new home. Clear the clutter. An organized home, with everything in its place, is a time-


saving home and time is money. • Follow a routine. If your money is spent before you get it, you will be less likely to save. Have money deducted from your income and deposited in a savings account with the highest possible interest rate. Don't show favorites because your checking is with one bank. Shop around for Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insured savings, certificates of deposit (CDs), money market funds, and other savings or investment vehicles. • Hoard windfalls.

Stop spending tax refunds, holiday cash gifts, small lottery winnings and other forms of unexpected money. Save them. • Withhold less. If you do get a tax refund, it may be time to adjust the money withheld from your paycheck. A tax refund is a free loan to the government. It costs you lost interest it could have earned in a savings account. Adjust your W-4 accurately to reflect your true tax liability. Use the Internal Revenue Service's withholding calculator to get it (con’t. on page 8)

Extra time to file Form 1040 By Julian Block

For most people, this year's deadline for filing Form 1040 is Monday, April 18. (Friday, April 15, is a legal holiday in Washington, D.C.) Miss the deadline and you could get slapped with a substantial, nondeductible penalty. Generally, the penalty is 5 percent of the balance due (the amount that remains unpaid after subtractions for taxes previously paid through withholdings from wages during 2010 and payments of estimated payments) for each month, or portion of a month, that a

1040 is late. The maximum penalty is 25 percent of the balance due—a truly steep charge. On a balance due of, say, $10,000, that works out to $500 a month. The penalty can reach as much as $2,500 when more than four months elapse before your return reaches the Internal Revenue Service. Sometimes, the IRS will forget about a late-filing penalty. The agency will waive the penalty only if you can convince it that the delay was “due to reasonable cause and not due to willful neglect.” An example: You're unable to com-

plete the return by the deadline because your residence, place of business or records are destroyed by fire, flood, or civil disturbance. Another acceptable excuse is the death or acute illness of an immediate family member, or your own serious illness. What if you don't have sufficient cash on hand to pay the balance due at filing time? Even if you're able to prove it, that isn't reasonable cause that will relieve you of the penalty. There's no problem if you need extra time to complete your return or just to avoid

the late-filing penalty. It's easy to obtain a six-month automatic filing extension, moving the deadline back to Tuesday, Oct. 18. By April 18, submit simple-to-complete Form 4868 (Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return) or e-file using your personal computer or a tax professional. Form 4868 extends only the time to turn in Form 1040, not the time to pay any taxes owed. While the IRS doesn't require payment by April 18 of the tax you estimate as due, failing to do so means you'll owe

nondeductible interest, which runs until payment of the tax. It makes no difference that you had a good reason for not paying on time; you'll still owe interest. Moreover, you might be assessed a nondeductible late-payment penalty on the unpaid tax. When you finally file your return, be sure to enter any extension-related payment on Line 68 of Form 1040 as "amount paid with request for extension to file." The IRS relaxes the rules for those who are unable to fully pay the balance due by April 18. Usually, it's

easy to arrange for partial payments in installments by submission of Form 9465 (Installment Agreement Request). It allows you to request a monthly payment plan and specify the amounts you can pay each month and the monthly due date. State Tax Returns Some states accept Form 4868 for extending their due date; some require their own extension forms. Check the rules of the state in which you have to file returns, including the penalties for any underpayments of taxes.

The numbers on buying a house By Carla Hill

It can be a tricky question. How much home can you really afford? From employment status, to savings, downpayment, and even spending habits, there are a myriad of factors that come into play. Here is a list of items to consider before settling on a budget. 1. Monthly Pay-

ment: Conventional wisdom tells us that your mortgage payment should be no more than 28 of your gross monthly income. This means that if you make $50,000 a year, the maximum amount you would safely want to pay each month is $1,166. How do you figure this for you own salary? Take ___ (salary) x .28 = total dollar amount for year. Then divide the

total dollar amount by 12 (months in the year) and there you have it! The National Association of Realtors also gives this simple equation for renters to use to figure out how much they can afford. Multiply your rent by 1.32 and that will equal your affordable mortgage payment. 2. Job Security: Have you just switched jobs? Is your company experiencing layoffs? In times of economic uncertainty, you may find it best to stay put. This is why many economic analysts keep saying that a housing


“Put “P my 20 years experience to work for you”

recovery is dependent on a jobs recovery. When jobs return, so will the buyers. 3. Savings: The state of American savings is scary. According to Visual, the average family has $117,951 worth of debt and only $3,800 in savings. And a quarter of Americans have no savings at all! Half have nothing saved for retirement. Talk about crossing your fingers that social security will hold out for a while. New grads are encountering an even scarier situation. The average college graduate has well over $20,000 in student loans to repay, and according to the New York Times, "Paying back student loans is likely to be especially difficult for recent graduates ... because the unemployment rate for college graduates ages 20 to 24 was 8.7 percent in 2009 — the highest annual rate on record and a substantial rise from 5.8 percent in 2008." How does your debt-to-income ratio stack up? The Federal Reserve thinks debt

adding up to more than 40% of your gross income could indicate financial distress. The U.S. savings rate has risen steadily since the recession hit. It is now at 5.8 percent (American Express Spending & Saving Tracker). Hopefully, this rate will continue to be a trend. 4. Emergency Fund: Before you even begin to think about buying a house or moving, you must have an 8-month emergency fund in the bank. This means you need to add up your living expenses for a month. Include all the necessities and things that must be paid (rent or mortgage, car payments, insurance, food, gas money, electric, phone, tuition, day care, etc). Then multiply this number by 8. You must have this in case you or your spouse loses your job, gets sicks, or some other disaster hits your family. 5. Downpayment: This is savings in addition to your 8month emergency fund. And a downpayment should be at least 20 percent of

your purchase amount. Look at it this way. If your monthly expenses are $2,000 a month and you want to buy a $100,000 house, you'll need a bare minimum of $36,000 in the bank to truly afford this move. That doesn't include cash needed for closing costs, repairs, moving expenses, and renovation. 6. Lifestyle and Extraneous Factors: Everyone has different wants and needs. You may be fine spending a little more for the house of your dreams in exchange for taking fewer vacations. Others abhor the statement, "house rich, cash poor," and instead would rather have funds for shopping, dining out, and travel. And don't forget about extraneous factors, such as aging parents, car repairs and maintenance. Things may come out of nowhere! Buying a house is a fulfilling experience, but it comes with a lot of financial responsibility that shouldn't be taken lightly. Be sure to mull these items over when considering a buy.

Tips for tackling home improvement projects with ease (ARA) - It’s that time of year when homeowners look around their property and start mentally creating a list of to-do projects. Sometimes these projects are minor like changing out accents in the bathroom. Other times the project can end up being a complete remodel that requires the right tools and strategy. If you’ve taken that brave step to committing yourself to a home improvement project, congratulations - you’ve won half the battle. The next hurdle to overcome is successfully preparing yourself for the task at hand. Minor adjustments can save you time and money down the road so it’s important that you do your homework in advance. Before getting started, consider the tips below. These handy hints can help you maximize project results and avoid unnecessary stress. • Prioritize - Put simply, don’t bite off more than you can chew. When taking on home projects, remember to consider quality over quantity. There is no sense in rushing through one project just to cross it

off the list. Decide what upgrades are most important and pay them their due diligence. Identify what requires your immediate attention, and what can wait. More importantly, recognize when you’re in over your head and don’t be afraid to enlist professional help. • Update your tool box - We create more work for ourselves by not investing in quality tools that address multiple project needs. The right tool can give you professional looking results while dramatically reducing frustration. The new RotoZip ZipSaw is outfitted to handle applications in a variety of

materials, including tile, wood and metal. From installing new flooring to removing old bathroom grout, this powerful cutting tool combines the best features of angle grinders and jamb saws to tackle straight, curved, notched and flush cuts with ease. • Plan a budget Identify how much you’re able to spend and stick to it. No sense in taking on debt or refinancing your home just to keep up with the Joneses. If you can’t afford the kitchen remodel this year, consider investing in smaller updates that won’t go unnoticed. You’d be surprised how updat-

ed appliances or a simple paint job can add new life to your home. There is always the risk of unforeseen costs; research common project pitfalls and try to eliminate those possibilities. Don’t forget to incorporate the cost of tools if you’re not hiring help. • Set regular goals The home improvement process can be overwhelming, so it’s important to set goals for each portion of the project. These ongoing check points are rewarding and can help motivate you to keep going. Remember to use these intervals to take a break and clear your head. The time off allows

you to come at the next step fresh, ultimately minimizing fatigue and frustration. Regular breaks also enable you to monitor your project supplies and stock up as needed. Don’t let project logistics intimidate you to push off home updates yet another season. Home improvement is a marathon, not a sprint. Take your time and trust that the end result will be wellworth your effort. With the right tools and proper preparation, you can avoid costly mistakes and tackle that to-do list like a pro.

Scent and sight combine for a truly stylish home (ARA) - Whether your home is an expression of cleanlined modernism in stainless steel and glass or a warm and worn harmony of earth tones and antique furnishings, an often-overlooked element of home style is the unseen atmosphere that you breathe. Customizing a unique palette of aromatic style is an

expression of your personal taste. More importantly, if you want a home that’s toxin-free, you’ll want to select fragrance options carefully, and not choose synthetic options. Synthetic scents are often very obtrusive and lack the subtle nuances of 100 percent pure essential oils. When you find an

essential oil blend suited to your style, it’s easy to incorporate

the scent into one or more natural and stylish home scenting

Fabric freshening mist Combine 4 ounces water and 24 drops of the oil blend in a small spray bottle. Shake vigorously and lightly mist curtains and upholstered furnishings.

Candle lamp diffusion Ingredients: 1/4 cup water 10 to 12 drops essential oil blend Directions Place 1/4 cup water in bowl of diffuser lamp. Add 10 to 12 drops of the oil blend. Light candle and warm the liquid to release the aroma.

Tips for buying the right grill (ARA) - Firing up the grill has become synonymous with welcoming the summer, and let’s be honest, we usually don’t wait until summer to embark on the outdoor cooking season. When you decide it’s time to break out the grill, you want to find the best way to cook your burgers or bratwursts. But with all the options out there for outdoor cooking, how do you know what’s the optimal solution for your open-air culinary needs?

“The grill you choose should be versatile, so it meets all your cooking needs,” says Leslie Segrete, home expert and former designer on “Trading Spaces” and “While You Were Out.” There are so many styles and models available these days that you’re sure to find something that will make your weekend meals - and even weekday dinners - everyday special.’” Here Segrete cooks up some tips to help every-

one find their perfect grill. 1. Think about the size of your space. It’s an obvious factor in purchasing a grill, and should be a primary consideration. If you have a small deck or backyard, it would not only be inconvenient to bring home a massive grill - it could be dangerous. On the other hand, if you have plenty of space, it would be a shame to buy a grill with a cooking capacity of two burgers when you would prefer 40. 2. Consider how you are going to use the grill. For those who love the smokiness and real outdoorsy feel of cooking with charcoal, there are multiple models from which to choose. If convenience and ease of use are your primary goals, then a gas grill will surely be your best bet. And for those who want the

best of both worlds, there are combo grills, which are becoming more popular and are like two grills for the price of one. For example, if you are making mesquite-rubbed ribs, you can contain the woodsy smoke on the charcoal side and make lamb kebabs or roasted corn on the cob at the same time with the gas section. Or, if you host large barbecues and like to entertain, think about

getting a grill with a large cooking surface and multiple burners. 3. Don’t forget added features. An invaluable feature to consider is a side burner. Side burners are great because they turn your backyard into a variable kitchen. Rather than running back and forth from kitchen to grill and risk burning your food, you can use the side burners like a regular stovetop. They are ideal for preparing side dishes, from simple options like baked beans or boiled potatoes to more gourmet options like sesame soy green beans or pesto pasta salad. You can also keep side dishes warm on very low heat. If you want ultimate versatility, look for a grill with a steamer for quick and convenient preparation of a whole garden full of fresh veggies. 4. Think beyond black

or stainless steel. Many department stores, like Sears for example, have unique options in colors like copper and red, which can add a brilliant splash of color to your outdoor space. And red and orange tones are spot-on for summer’s hottest hues. 5. Don’t forget the accessories. You don’t have to spend a ton of money at fancy cooking stores to get the accessories you need. Stores like Sears carry everything from cedar grilling planks and pizza stones to great quality grilling tools fit for any chef. If you use these tips, you’re sure to find just the right grill so that when you “fire it up” you’ll have everything you need to prepare whole party menus, full family dinners or just a light snack for two.
