HOME GARDEN

Peppers have it made in the shade

If you look forward to perfect peppers but are disappointed when they get sunburn, there aren’t as many as you thought, or they aren’t BY CAROL as big as you’d O’MEARA like, chances Colorado State are that you University Extension, Boulder County have sunlight to blame. High solar intensity and temperatures work against getting the most of our pepper crops. Research on shading peppers is casting light on the benefits of cooling things off a bit on leaves and the root zone. Heat stress reduces plant’s ability to photosynthesize and cool itself efficiently, which in turn limits root development. Increasingly higher temperatures in summer limits root growth and damages fruit. Colorado’s research into solving this problem is led by Dr. Mike Bartolo, senior research scientist

High solar intensity and temperatures work against getting the most of our pepper crops.

and manager of the Arkansas Valley Research Center in Rocky Ford. He’s been researching the development of chili peppers since 1992. Bartolo’s research into preventing sunscald on the fruit of peppers led him to using 30-percent shade barrier over some plants to protect the fruit from harmful rays. But now that shade is proving effective in shielding plants from high temperatures as well – the transplants he covered with shade in early June aren’t showing the

stress the exposed peppers are. Globally, researchers concerned with the effects climate change could have on crop production are exploring ways to buffer hotter temperatures. Growing under shade cloth has garnered interest, and researchers are working to find the type of shade cloth that gives the most benefit. University of Georgia has shown that the color of the shade netting doesn’t make much difference; however, leaf surface temperature remained higher under white shade cloth. In our gardens, peppers covered with shade cloth or floating row covers are also in much better shape. Popping a tent of 30-percent cloth over your crop might help get things growing again, Bartolo said. “As long as the stem is okay and not injured by sunscald, things should get moving again once things cool down or you shade the plant.” A bit of shade is helpful to other plants as well, such as basil or tomatoes during fruit production. Mulching also helps keep the plant cool since it protects roots from water loss and soil cracking.

Shade cloth is available at garden centers in various lengths. It’s a durable fabric that can be used for several years. When covering your plants, remember that this is to be suspended above them, unlike floating row covers that can sit right on the plants. Create a frame for holding the shade barrier two to four feet above the plants, taking care that it’s secure for wind. Floating row covers provide about 15 to 19-percent shade, which might not be enough at this time to break the grip of heat. Early in the season it would help for root development, so keep it handy for next year. Carol A.

Home buying and selling tips DENVER – Realtor Allie Kirby, of New Era Group, Your Castle Real Estate in Denver lists the top three tips for both buying and selling a home in a hot housing market. BUYERS Get pre-approved Sitting down with a local lender to learn more about one’s financial options will help ease their stress. “Doing this will help you know your maximum purchase price when shopping for a property,” noted Kirby. “Other questions I encourage buyers to ask their lender are ‘How does an HOA payment affect my mortgage?’ ‘What will my full monthly mortgage payment include?’ ‘What are closing costs?’ ‘How does my credit score affect my financing?’ and ‘What documents will I need to provide?’” Start planning now One can never meet with a lender or Realtor too early to start making a game plan. “Informing yourself about the home buying

stated Kirby. “All of your daily conveniences need to be put away thoughtfully so that a buyer views storage space as ample and useable. Lastly, it’s important to spruce up any wear and tear the home has. You are aiming to sell a graceful lifestyle, so things like fresh paint and thoughtful landscaping can go a long way.”

process and about the current market will help you manage your expectations when you begin your own home search,” added Kirby. Be prepared to get creative with your offer Although sellers are usually trying to get the highest dollar amount possible, there are a myriad of terms to structure within an offer that can help strengthen one’s position as a buyer, past the offer price presented. SELLERS Price your home accurately “Buyers are going to do their research on how your home compares to the other recently sold comparable properties in the neighborhood. Pricing accurately is going to help generate more showing traffic, possibly even presenting you the opportunity of multiple offers, allowing you the incredible option to select a solid buyer for your home,” stressed Kirby. Declutter and knock out

that to-do list It’s time to show off the property to potential buyers. “It’s important to show not how you live in the space, but the potential lifestyle and ease the new homeowner could enjoy in your space,”

Be patient “While yes, some Colorado homes are selling within a matter of days, this might not happen overnight or your first contract may fall out,” concluded Kirby. “Odds are that if the price is right and your home is in good condition, there’s another buyer right around the corner.” Allie Kirby is a Realtor at New Era Group, Your Castle Real Estate in Denver. She works with both buyers and sellers in the Denver metro area. For more information, please call 720.432.4866 or visit alliekirby.com.

PHOTOGRAPHY MATTERS List your home with a pro

U

nless you have a passion for and the know-how to create amazing photography for your home listing, it’s a safe bet you consider that part of the job a big pain in the backside. Your phone camera isn’t going to cut it, and you might be worried about the cost of having professional photos done. Well, here’s the truth of the matter: Making the investment in professional photography is a far wiser choice than throwing it together yourself. Photographer Tim Seibert of Flatirons Pro Media explains why. At Home: If someone selling their home or renting out an Airbnb or Vrbo can take decent photos on their point ‘n shoot, why isn't that enough? Tim Seibert: Do you want decent photos representing your home or outstanding ones? Not everyone has the photographic eye.

every photograph. Professional photography equipment also improves the image quality. AH: What's a common misconception about photography as it pertains to real estate? TS: “The photographs made the rooms look much bigger.” This is not the intent of the photographer, agent or seller. It is just a fact that in order to capture at least

50 percent of a room, a wide angle lens must be used. Much like looking through binoculars, everything looks closer. Turn the binoculars around and you are miles away from your subject. A vacant home is most vulnerable to this side effect. Furniture gives the viewer perspective where they

overexposed. It is important to not only capture the different rooms, but to keep the viewer’s interest by leading them into the next room. Like pieces of a puzzle, including a piece of the next room in each photo. If the composition is of the dining room, include a piece of the kitchen and how they connect.

the room and exposing so that the highlights and shadows look natural. As good as cameras are today, they still do not have the dynamic range of light that our eyesight has. In a camera, the highlights go bright and the shadows go dark. To me some rooms just scream to have a more intimate, low composition near a fireplace or a beautiful view out the window, giving the viewer a seat in the room.

AH: How do you capture emotion in photos of a home?

AH: What’s unique to Airbnb and Vrbo rentals as far as photography goes?

TS: It is all about the light, allowing the natural light to fill

TS: The photographs are creating

a brand. What are the photos telling the viewer? Are dark photos with bright white windows trying to hide something from the viewer? Often times these homes are in beautiful locations, exposing those views through the window is crucial. The expense of professional photography is offset by the return one gets in their marketing efforts. AH: How does pro photography add value to a sales/rental listing? TS: The photographs are one of the most important tools used to market a home. The best

photographs create more interest, more offers and typically a better price. AH: What's the best compliment you could get from a client? TS: “The sellers are very happy with the photography. We had tons of showings and are under contract over asking price”.

ASK ANGIE'S LIST

How can I protect my home from burglary during vacation? By Paul F. P. Pogue, Angie’s List Home burglaries usually peak in late summer, when people are often away from home enjoying the outdoors or off on an extended vacation. But you can take some steps to protect your home and peace of mind while you’re away. Home security systems If you don’t already have a home security system, you can install one to warn you of intruders. The days of hardwired landlines are long gone; many security systems work with cellphones or internet connections. You can also link an alarm system to an overall smart home, which allows you to remotely monitor activity from a computer or device. (This also helps you adjust your lighting remotely without using a timer!) Video surveillance and door cameras allow you to check in on what’s going on in real time. Cameras bump up the cost of your system by about $150 to

alarms to your system, which can alert you and the fire department of fires before they rage out of control. When you install a security system, contact your insurance provider. They’ll often provide a discount on your policy, and can steer you towards the upgrades that offer the best savings. When hiring a home security monitoring service, check as many references as possible and make sure they hold the appropriate license. Good safety habits Home security systems play a vital role on the front line of defense, but your maintenance and household habits protect you in equal measure. Exterior lights with motion detectors are excellent deterrents for would-be thieves. Make sure they are placed to illuminate nooks and crannies where an intruder might hide, as well as at your door. Home maintenance makes a big difference. Check your doors to be sure they have secure hinges, strike plates, knobs or handles. And be sure that the door fits squarely into the jamb. If your door has glass near the latch, a dead bolt keyed on both sides may discourage a burglar from breaking the glass to get in. Replace or repair any damaged doors or hardware.

Avoid making expensive items easy to find. Keep valuables like televisions, computers and lawn equipment out of sight. How to handle vacations When you’re on vacation, take these steps to deter burglars: • Let a trusted neighbor know how long you’ll be away, and ask them to keep an eye on your house. • Wait until after the vacation to talk about it on social media. Don’t post your travel plans, check in to distant locations or post travel photos while you’re away. • Leave a car in the driveway or ask a friend or neighbor to park there occasionally. • Set the lights to turn on and off with an automatic timer. • Hire a lawn care service or ask a neighbor to attend to your lawn while you’re away. • Have someone pick up mail and newspapers, or place a hold on delivery. • Inform your security monitoring service that you’ll be on vacation.

Refinance or not?

Interest rates for a 30-year mortgage loan are currently below four percent, continuing the opportunity to refinance at a historically BY DUANE low rate. When DUGGAN interest rates Realtor and Author drop, you RE/MAX of Boulder might wonder whether or not it makes any sense to refinance. Unfortunately, there are many different “rules of thumb” being directed to the public in answer the question, “When is the right time to refinance?” One of these “rules of thumb” says that if your current mortgage loan is less than two years old, you should not refinance. Generally, this idea comes from the fact that you have just paid closing costs and when you refinance, there will be another set of closing costs. Another common “rule” used to determine the feasibility of refinancing is that there should be at least a two percent spread between the old interest rate and the new refinance rate. The reasoning behind this rule is that at least a two percent difference in interest rates is usually needed in order to justify the expenses incurred when refinancing. In reality, refinancing your home mortgage could be done any time there is a significant savings in your monthly mortgage payment (or in your overall debt payments if you are consolidating other loans by refinancing) AND you plan to live in your home long enough to recover the expenses incurred with refinancing. Let’s say that your current home mortgage is at a rate of five percent. A refinanced mortgage rate of 3.75 percent may currently be available to you. Before proceeding with refinancing your current mortgage you need to answer three questions in order to make a wise decision: 1. What are the total costs involved in refinancing? 2. How long do you foresee owning this home? 3. How many more payments will the loan be extended by? There will be a variety of costs

These include: a title policy to assure the lender that they have an enforceable deed of trust and loan on the property, an appraisal to determine your home’s market value, a loan origination fee, loan discount points, and a few other miscellaneous fees. Most title companies will offer a reduced title policy premium when the title insurance is re-issued for an owner within two years of the original title policy issue. This offer is possible because there is less exposure to the title company over such a short period of time. Most homeowners upon purchasing a home find out that any loan discount points paid are deductible as interest by the buyer in the year that they are paid. What may not be generally known is that discount points paid to refinance a home are not fully deductible in the year they are paid. These must be prorated or spread out over the life of the mortgage. For example, if a homeowner paid $3,000 in loan discount points to refinance their home mortgage at a lower rate, they could potentially deduct $100 in interest each year for a 30-year mortgage. This would mean a $28/year tax savings if in the 28 percent tax bracket or $15/year tax savings if in the 15 percent tax bracket. The downside is that the homeowner had to pay $3,000 either in cash or by adding this amount to the mortgage. If possible, it is generally recommended that homeowners

refinance with a “par value” loan, or in other words, that they refinance at a rate which does not require the payment of any loan discount points. This keeps the out of pocket expenses of refinancing at a minimum even though the interest rate may be slightly higher. It is necessary to understand two terms in order to determine whether the interest payments on a home mortgage are fully deductible: “acquisition debt” and “home equity debt”. Acquisition debt is the amount of money borrowed in order to buy, build, or make capital improvements to a principal or second home. The deductibility limit for acquisition debt is $1,000,000 for the combination of a first and second home. As the principal is paid down on this mortgage, the acquisition debt is reduced. Home equity debt has a deductibility limit of $100,000 above the current acquisition costs for both the first and second homes. Money pulled out of a home’s equity can be used for any purpose including home improvements, education, and medical expenses, business expenses, or restructuring and paying off other debts. When a homeowner refinances a mortgage, the acquisition debt does not increase. For example, if a person originally borrowed $175,000 to purchase their home and the current unpaid balance is now $150,000, the acquisition debt is now $150,000. By refinancing only the $150,000 balance the interest payments will still be deductible. Assuming the market value of the home will allow it, the homeowner could borrow up to $250,000 and still have all of the interest payments be deductible. $150,000 of the new loan would still be considered acquisition debt and the additional $100,000 would be considered home equity debt. An important thing for homeowners to be aware of is that all of the interest payments on a principal or second home mortgage may not be tax deductible even though a mortgage company may be willing to make a certain loan amount. The limit restrictions for “acquisition” and “home equity” debt must be taken into consideration and your tax advisor should be consulted for current tax rules. Due to the competitive nature of the home mortgage business,

some lenders will offer “Low” or “No Closing Costs” loans. These types of loans will typically have a slightly higher interest rate. It is important to find out if the lender is actually not charging any closing costs or if these costs are being added to the refinanced mortgage amount. Adding closing costs to the mortgage can hide potentially high loan fees that increase the overall costs of the mortgage, even though the out of pocket expenses are kept low. When refinancing, the payment can drop for reasons other than interest rate. One is that if the old loan was amortized, the principal is being paid down a bit each month. When the refinance loan is done, the balance will be lower than the original, unless cash is pulled out or if the original loan was interest only. Second, by refinancing, the loan repayment process starts over at 30 years to go. Therefore, much of the monthly savings is tacked on to the end of the loan. Some people will argue the “time value of money”. In other words, those dollars added on the end are worth much less than dollars today, hence the argument, “don’t pay your mortgage off early”. In summary: First, consider refinancing whenever it creates a significant monthly savings and you can recover the expenses of refinancing during the time you own the home. Second, consider a “par value” loan to keep closing costs at a minimum and be aware that loan points paid when refinancing are not fully deductible as interest in the first year. Finally, consult your mortgage loan professional and tax advisor to discuss your specific details.

What is a property survey and where can I get one? By Dori Zinn, Bankrate.com The amount of work required after making an offer on a home and actually moving in might be more than you think. For example, some homebuyers may need to get a property survey before they close on a new place. Property surveys are done to determine or confirm land boundaries, such as the plot of land a home sits on, and identify other types of restrictions and conditions that apply to the legal description of a property. Whether you’re buying a home or building an addition onto your property, you’re going to need a property survey. Let’s explore in more detail what it is and how to get one. What is a property survey? A property survey is all about defining what’s yours and what isn’t. Curtis Sumner, executive director of the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS), says they’re done for many different reasons. “Property surveys are performed for a number of reasons,” Sumner says. He adds that surveys are used to establish boundaries when new parcels of land are being developed, as well as to identify and confirm already established land boundaries. For example, if you’re considering putting up a fence on your property, you’ll need to know where your property line ends _ and where your neighbor’s begins. That’s what a property survey helps you determine. If you’re looking to buy a home, you might be required to get a survey, depending on where you live. Many lenders and title companies require a copy of a survey to close on a home, but they’re not mandatory everywhere. Where do I find my property’s survey? If you’re buying a home, ask the seller to check with their lender and/or title company to see if there’s a property survey on file. The local tax assessor’s office may also have one. If you’re already a homeowner and a survey was never provided to you, your local property records or engineering department may 14

from HomeAdvisor, which lists average costs for various types of property surveys. The more complex a property’s features and records history, the more you’ll likely pay for a surveyor’s time. If you’re buying a home and need a survey to establish property lines, determine whether a property is in a floodplain or because your lender requires one, you will pay for the survey.

have one on file, but it’s probably older and could be outdated. While such dated surveys are typically accurate on standard city lots, they can be wrong if you live on a former country parcel that’s been altered for suburban development. You can also check with neighbors to see where they got theirs. What are the different types of property surveys? Because there are many reasons to have a survey done, there are a few different types of surveys. For example, land surveys are done to show the boundaries of a parcel of land. There are also topographic surveys, which show the plane as well as the elevation of land. If road improvements are requested, for instance, a topographic survey would be needed. Other types of surveys include: • Monumentation surveys: These are done if you want to add a fence to your property. • As-built surveys: Determine property lines but also where improvements can be made, like driveways and sidewalks. • Mortgage surveys: Like as-built surveys, these show property boundaries for an entire property that will be mortgaged. • Floodplain surveys: Show flood hazard areas. If you’re requesting a property survey, be specific about why you need it. That way when you get an estimate for the work, it’s accurate

in relation to what you need done. Why are property surveys important? While property surveys aren’t required everywhere, they are in many jurisdictions across the country. That’s because they detail how your property is defined in an official capacity. Rather than guessing where your property lines are, you have a document that makes it clear. Emory Wooll, general manager of Title Partners of South Florida, says property surveys are required for lender title insurance policies. “In order (for a title insurance policy to be issued), we need to know if there are any encroachments on the property prior to closing,” Wooll says. “They’re usually done before a home purchase, or, say, someone is putting a pool in or a fence.” Wooll says cities or contractors will require a survey before permits can be pulled. So if you’re hoping to build a pool in your backyard, you’ll need a recent survey completed. While there’s a chance you could use an old survey to pull permits, it’s not always guaranteed. In that case, you may want to get a new survey completed. How much a property survey costs The cost of a property survey depends on what type of survey you need and the property’s size, location and history. A simple property boundary survey costs anywhere from $100 to $600, while a mortgage survey costs an average of $500, according to data

How do I hire a property surveyor? Searching for property surveyors in your area is one of the best ways to find companies to get the job done. “There is a surveying society in each of the 50 states, all of which are affiliated with NSPS,” Sumner says. “Each of those societies has a website, which will typically include a ‘Find A Surveyor’ section.” Don’t be afraid to ask your title company or lender for recommendations. This can help you find a trustworthy and reliable surveyor near you. You should also take the time to question your potential surveyor. Talk about your needs beforehand to make sure they can fulfill the requirements. Check that the surveyor is licensed to practice in the state where the property is located, Sumner advises. Be mindful of how much time it takes to complete a survey. Wooll says property surveys can usually be completed within a week, but it could take up to three, depending on the company. Sumner says there’s no way to determine exactly how long it’ll take to complete a survey since there are so many variables to consider, including the quality and availability of property records, such as deeds. Bottom line You might not need a property survey done before buying a home. In some cases, your lender or title company might require one, so make sure you’re prepared for the additional legwork and cost. Whether you’re closing on a home or planning a major addition, knowing your property’s precise boundary lines can help avoid costly headaches and disputes with neighbors later on.

ASK THE EXPERT

Pre-listing inspections, why? Are you considering listing your home for sale? An option your real estate agent may suggest is a pre-listing home inspection. BY RICK A pre-listing JACQUEMARD inspection is Flatirons Home paid for by Inspections the seller in preparation for putting it on the market. Some real estate agents highly recommend them and others do not. There is no right way to buy or sell a house. The decision you make should be considered a personal choice regarding how you want to approach positioning your house for the market. There are several compelling reasons to invest in a pre-listing home inspection. The following are just a few of them. Reducing Liability: It is less likely for a buyer to come back at the seller regarding an undisclosed defect if the seller has done a pre-listing inspection. A pre-listing inspection shows an honest intent

to disclose the accurate condition of the home when you go to the effort and expense of hiring an independent third party inspector to do a pre-listing inspection and then disclose this report to potential buyers. Buyers may wish to hire their own inspector, but the effort to disclose portrays a forthcoming seller. Understand the condition of what you are selling: Pre-listing home inspections allow sellers to understand the condition of their home prior to settling on a price. Home sellers should not feel obligated to fix everything or even anything that comes up on an inspection. Some houses get sold as fixer uppers or fix and flip, others as move-in ready and still others as scrape-offs. The condition of the building, as is uncovered during a home inspection, can help you figure out where your house fits on this scale. In addition, a detailed home inspection report serves as a blueprint for getting the house where you want it to be prior to listing. Control repairs: Pre-listing

home inspections allow a seller to take control of home repairs. Often simple things can come up on a home inspection that can be made much more complicated when there is a deadline pending for closing. When surprises come up on a home inspection done by a buyer, there may not be time to get qualified contractors to further evaluate a finding such as a roof or an HVAC problem. Even though the roof or HVAC may be repairable, a buyer, working under limited time constraints, may simply ask for a new roof or new furnace as a precaution, or they may ask for a repair to be done by the most expensive contractor or a large credit or discount off the sale price. By tackling maintenance and repair items on your own time frame, sellers can control repairs to ensure they are executed in a professional, efficient and costeffective fashion. Avoid inspection objections: A pre-listing home inspection does not guarantee that a buyer will waive their inspection. Many buyers will still want to hire their own inspector. However,

pre-listing inspections can reduce the risk that major issues will be found when the buyer does have an inspection done. Home inspection surprises can delay the sale even cause the contract to be voided. If the sale falls through your house must go back on the market and valuable time will be lost. These are only a few of the advantages to doing a pre-listing home inspection. Sellers do have to pay for these inspections, but they can save time and money in the long run. As always, one of the most important things is finding a quality real estate agent to work with who knows how to get a house ready for the market. Brokers who have successful track records of getting homes sold quickly and at a competitive price typically have their own personal formula. For more information on home inspections contact Rick Jacquemard, at 720.280.3544, e-mail rick@flatironshi.com or visit flatironshi.com.
