Worth The Work & The Wait


Ready to start shopping for a new home? You’ve got some homework to do before you begin any serious shopping. Start saving your cash. Think down payment, closing costs, cash-reserve requirements. Check your credit score - you’ll likely need it to be 620 or higher to get approved for a loan. Determine the amount of money you earn each month, after taxes. Compare this to the amount you spend on your debts and expense. Your housing budget lies within the difference between these numbers. You’ll have two price limits during the house-hunting stage: your own budget and the lender’s maximum loan amount. You want to use the lesser of these two numbers as your spending guide. Don’t let the lender’s preapproval steer you into a mortgage loan that’s too big or restrictive for you. You don’t want to be house rich and cash poor. Get pre-approved by a mortgage lender. They will tell you whether or not they can approve you for a home loan, and how much you’re qualified to borrow. This will help you limit your shopping to the types of homes you can afford. Being pre-approved can also help you find a real estate agent as pre-approval is practically a requirement these days with most agents. Considering the amount of money on the line, you can see why it makes sense to have professional help you through the process. Licensed Real Estate Agents are trained to know the market. They can search for homes that meet your criteria and coordinate showings of these properties. An agent can help you evaluate the seller’s asking price using recent sales data, help you determine a fair amount to offer, write up the offer to present to the seller and negotiate with the seller on your behalf. Are you equipped to do this by yourself? If not, hire an agent. Even with all your ducks in a row and a qualified agent on your side, you’ll need to be prepared to wait. According to the National Association of Home Builders, 2/3 of home buyers searched for more than 3 months before going under contract on a home. What took so long? 42% couldn’t find a home at an affordable price. 36% couldn’t find a home with the features they wanted. 34% couldn’t find a home in their desired neighborhood. 27% got out-bid when submitting an offer.

Security Hacks Recommended

By Police

Did you know that many police departments have a community affairs officer whose primary goal is to build a strong working relationship with the community? That means you have access to a trained safety expert who wants to give you ideas to keep your home and neighborhood safe. Read on for eight simple home security hacks from a recent home safety evaluation conducted by a police officer. 1. Change the locks When was the last time you changed the locks? How many previous owners have there been and how many keys have been given out to neighbors, friends, family or delivery people? You never know who has a second copy, and for less than $100 at Home Depot, you can change your locks immediately. 2. Replace outdoor lightbulbs If you don’t have outdoor flood lights, get them. If you have them, make sure the bulbs are in working order. 3. Place an alarm sign in your yard Many would-be thieves won’t approach a house if they think it has an alarm. You can get an alarm sign online. 4. Buy an indoor camera Cameras can capture a suspect in the act and let homeowners check the footage from anywhere. FunLux indoor cameras offer high-quality images and night vision, and they’re motion activated and affordable. You can get them on Amazon for about $25 each. 5. Get out the garden shears Every bush outside of your windows should be below the window line, usually 2-3 feet in height,


to maximize your visibility from the inside of your house to the outside, so that means you must trim your bushes. You can get garden shears at your local hardware store for $15. 6. Bake some cookies One of the best ways to stay safe is to work together as a neighborhood. We all need to keep an eye on each other and what better way to start that relationship than with a plate of cookies? 7. Protect your neighborhood There are many measures you can take to improve your community safety, with varying levels of affordability. Some cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and some, like Flock Safety, you can buy for less than $3 per month, per home. Outdoor security cameras, like Flock Safety, can reduce crime and prevent would-be criminals from entering the neighborhood. 8. Ask for a security survey Officers will walk around your house, inside and out, to assess its safety and could reveal some surprising tips. They want to help, and they are motivated to solve and prevent crime. For more information on keeping your home and neighborhood secure, as well as a free cost estimate for outdoor security cameras, visit www. (BPT) -

Budget Checkup For Homeowners & Future Homeowners

A budget is an important tool for firsttime homebuyers and current homeowners. It’s a great exercise that can free your financial mind! A budget is meant to be a guide to where you should spend your monthly income. Budgeting can mean guilt-free fun. By making and sticking to your budget, you can spend money knowing exactly how much you need to

set aside for necessities, and how much you can spend on other activities! Budgets are an important tool for the first-time homebuyer because it can help you make your move into a home with a payment that fits your lifestyle and circumstances. For existing homeowners, budgets can help you achieve or maintain financial freedom. Budgeting can be done by anyone - it just takes time initially to set it up correctly. Gather paychecks, bills and bank statements to get started. You can write down all this information or use a budget tool. Start by calculating your monthly income, which includes not only the amount you may get from a regular paycheck, but also any money you get in government aid, child support or pensions. The next step is to look at your bills and bank statements to find out truly what you spend in each category. This accurate information will empower you to take control of your finances. Do you see a surplus? That is great! You can take that surplus and contribute to your financial goals, whether that be saving for a down payment, taking a family vacation or building a nest egg. Do you see a deficit? If so, you can make the changes needed to balance your budget. You can cut back on nonessential items, like eating dinners out, to get financially fit. Having this knowledge is powerful and can help you take the right steps toward financial stability. A budget is crucial for home ownership, whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or you currently own a home. A sound budget can relieve stress and help you feel confident in the way you spend your hard-earned income. Vanderbilt Mortgage and Finance, Inc. is a national housing lender that specializes in financing manufactured homes. In business for more than 40 years, the company currently services more than 200,000 home loans and works hard to tailor loans to each family’s needs.

Goodbye Spring Cleaning,

Hello Winter Refresh!

Every year, homeowners anxiously await spring to refresh and reset their homes. But what if we capitalized on all the time spent indoors during winter to take control of home improvements ahead of time instead? Many homeowners agree that the colder months are the perfect time to cross home improvement projects off the list, feeling more motivated to work on them during this time of year. Enhancing your home’s value and functionality does not require a full-blown remodel. Strategic updates can make a significant impact and can be completed in just a few days. Consider these smart, no sweat home updates while staying cozy indoors. Upgrade appliances: Dated appliances can steal from a space’s potential; a simple swap can completely transform the aesthetic of a room, taking it from vintage to polished in a snap. Thanks to Maytag, you don’t have to sacrifice function for style. Whether you’re partial to French door or side-by-side refrigerators, front load or top load washers, explore sleek options at www.maytag. com. Declutter: Donate or sell trinkets and gadgets you don’t use and focus on organizing what’s left. Consider storage solutions like closet organizers and kitchen pull-outs that make organization seamless. Fresh paint: A fresh coat of paint is an affordable update for any room. Whether you paint all the walls in your room or just one to create a focal wall, you can customize this project to your personal tastes and preferences. Why not paint the ceiling too? A fresh coat of white paint can instantly elevate a space by better reflecting light.


Replace hardware: The kitchen and bathrooms are typically the most frequented rooms in a home. If you want to add a little pizzazz with minimal effort, focus on the hardware. Replace knobs, handles and hooks with a new look that reflects your personality. Brushed metals have maintained popularity, and brass is poised to make a comeback. Other materials like wood and glass are popular for hardware, too. Whether you love it or can’t get through it quickly enough, winter is a perfect time to take on home improvements that are simple and achievable. With these handy tips, you have the knowledge and power to rejuvenate your home and make this winter a productive one. Update now, so you can relax later! (BPT)

10 Tips for Safer Winter

Generator Usage If your electricity goes out due to snow and ice, a generator can keep your power flowing. The Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), reminds homeowners to keep safety in mind when using generators this winter. 1. Take stock of your generator. Make sure equipment is in good working order before starting and using it. Do this before a storm hits. 2. Review the directions. Follow all manufacturer’s instructions. Review the owner’s manuals (look manuals up online if you cannot find them) so equipment is operated safely. 3. Install a battery operated carbon monoxide detector in your home. This alarm will sound if dangerous levels of carbon monoxide enter the building. 4. Have the right fuel on hand. Use the type of fuel recommended by the generator manufacturer to protect this important investment. It is illegal to

use any fuel with more than 10% ethanol in outdoor power equipment. It’s best to use fresh fuel, but if you are using fuel that has been sitting in a gas can for more than 30 days, add fuel stabilizer to it. Store gas only in an approved container and away from heat sources. 5. Ensure portable generators have plenty of ventilation. Generators should NEVER be used in an enclosed area or placed inside a home, a building, or a garage, even if the windows or doors are open. Place the generator outside and away from windows, doors, and vents that could allow carbon monoxide to drift indoors. 6. Keep the generator dry. Do not use a generator in wet conditions. Cover and vent a generator. Model-specific tents or generator covers can be found online for purchase and at home centers and hardware stores. 7. Only add fuel to a cool generator. Before refueling, turn the generator off and let it cool down. 8. Plug in safely. If you don’t yet have a transfer switch, you can use the outlets on the generator. It’s best to plug in appliances directly to the generator. If you must use an extension cord, it should be heavy-duty and designed for outdoor use. It should be rated (in watts or amps) at least equal to the sum of the connected appliance loads. Make sure the cord is free of cuts, and the plug has all three prongs. 9. Install a transfer switch. A transfer switch connects the generator to the circuit panel and lets you power hardwired appliances. Most transfer switches also help avoid overload by displaying wattage usage levels. 10. Do not use the generator to “backfeed” power into your home electrical system. Trying to power your home’s electrical wiring by “backfeeding” – where you plug the generator into a wall outlet – is dangerous. You could hurt utility workers and neighbors served by the same transformer. Backfeeding bypasses built-in circuit protection devices, so you could damage your electronics or start an electrical fire. For more safety tips for outdoor power equipment visit
