The Up Side of Downsizing


“We downsized so we could stop worrying about paying the mortgage. Now we only worry about where to store our stuff.”


Downsizing sounds like a great idea until you realize how much you’ve collected over the years. How can you face the idea of getting rid of your high school shop project or those dishes handed down from your mother? Instead of referring as it to downsizing, think of it as “rightsizing,” suggests Barry Izsak, certified organizer and owner of Arranging it All. “Rightsizing doesn’t mean you can’t own what you love, it just means owning less of it. It means focusing on what’s important and what really matters to you and letting go of the rest.” He suggests eliminating anything that is not useful, beautiful or something you love as a first step in deciding what will stay and what will go.

Organization experts live by the OHIO rule: Only Handle It Once. Making a “maybe” pile only wastes time. Sort items into one of three piles; keep, discard or donate. Plan for your actual life, not your imagined one. If you aren’t using that treadmill, kick it to the curb. Keep your mostused items then let the rest go. If you have a collection, don’t take every piece with you; keep a subset - a few pieces that are representative of the set. Sell what you don’t need and bank the money.

Table of Contents

“Make the easy, unemotional decisions first and start with things that you can easily and obviously get rid of,” advises Izsak. “It’s not realistic to think that you can tackle a lifetime of possessions in a day, a week or a month. Do it in stages and allow yourself enough time.” If at all possible, start downsizing while you are still in good health, one room or area at a time. That way it won’t become an overwhelming emotional issue when you are less able to deal with it. If you’re downsizing due to a move, use your new space as a guide for determining what you’ll realistically need to keep.

There’s A Lot More

To A Mortgage

Than Just Your Interest Rate A home mortgage is one of the biggest expenses a consumer will undertake. That’s why it’s important to look beyond interest rates to help get the lowest possible costs. “When homebuyers look purely at interest rates, they don’t get a complete picture of what they’re paying for a mortgage,” says Glenn Brunker, mortgage executive for Ally Home, the direct-toconsumer mortgage unit of Ally Bank. “Ignoring other aspects may mean you’re not getting the mortgage that’s right for your specific financial situation or leaving you without extra cash for home improvements or emergency funds.” To find a mortgage that’s right for your budget, evaluate such factors as points, loan closing fees and other funds that may be required upfront at closing. Points You might have heard someone mention “points” when talking about a mortgage. Discount points, commonly known as points, are fees borrowers pay directly to a lender at closing to get a lower interest rate. One point is equal to one percentage point of your mortgage. For example, if you have a 30-year, $275,000 mortgage and your lender charges you one point, you’ll have an upfront charge of $2,750. Points can be your friend to help lower the rate but only when you understand how points work and the right strategies to use them. Closing Costs When purchasing a home, most consumers are focused on the amount of interest on their mortgage and rightly so. But you also need to prepare for expenses associated with closing, such as appraisal fees, escrow payments and deed preparation fees.

newsShorts Zillow reports closing costs typically run around 2 to 5 percent of a home’s purchase price. But closing costs can differ from lender to lender by hundreds or even thousands of dollars—so be sure to compare fees to help keep some cash in hand. Future Expenses Buying a home comes with a variety of ongoing expenses. Repairs and potential renovations are obvious costs, but don’t forget about expenses such as homeowner’s insurance premiums and property tax. Homeowners are often required to pay these charges up front as part of their monthly mortgage payment. Lenders hold the funds in what’s called an escrow account and then make the insurance and tax payments on your behalf. This ensures these expenses are paid on time and protects the lender from tax liens and other financial losses. To understand more about the mortgage process, you can download the free Mortgage Playbook at Getting the house of your dreams at a price you can afford is the smart way to truly call it “Home Sweet Home.” (NAPS)

Remodel Unused

Living Space To Maximize

Your Home’s Potential If the real estate market has you frazzled or if the notion of trading up leaves you with sticker shock, a home remodeling project may be just the right answer.

breathe or to create an income suite to offset mortgage costs. It can also offer the added benefit of bolstering the value of your home. With so many uses, a remodeled basement may be the exact solution to what your home is missing, whether it’s additional storage space, a soundproofed media room, craft room, guest room or home gym. The possibilities are practically endless. An unfinished basement, on the other hand, can be a source of energy loss, so with a remodeling you can expect to see savings on your monthly heating and cooling costs. Industry experts recommend finishing the space with the proper framing, insulation and vapor barrier to guarantee cozy and inviting rooms. Insulation plays a key role in the comfort of your newly remodeled space and although hidden within your walls, it will make sure the basement stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Unfortunately, moisture can be a common challenge in many basements. Starting with a dry space is important. As a result, builders and contractors often favor an inorganic stone wool insulation that’s resistant to mold and mildew growth, such as Rockwool Comfortboard and Comfortbatt products. Not only will they help protect indoor air quality, they’re easy to install and won’t slump in the wall cavity. This serves to ensure the comfort of your newfound living space, so you can count on long-term thermal performance for years to come. Remodeling a basement can be very worthwhile, especially when you consider that moving to a larger home can add significant bulk to your mortgage. To get the most from the project, be sure to practice due diligence, obtain the right permits, and educate yourself on building codes. If you don’t have the know-how, it’s worth the peace of mind to hire a qualified professional. For further facts, go to (NAPS)

Robot Mower On

The Cutting Edge The extensive use of domestic robots for various household uses such as floor cleaning, pool, gutter and window cleaning is spurring growth, in of all things,the robotic lawn mower market. Like a Roomba for your yard, these lawn mowers are autonomous in nature and function without human intervention - though you will be required to fasten down a corresponding low voltage wire, (think invisible fence) around the area you want mowed. The systems are designed to include a docking station, a mobile base, and other accessories that support its smooth functioning, and it also uses intelligent sensory feedback control programmed to mow surfaces automatically. Kids forget to put their toys away? No problem - the mowers are designed to reroute when they bump into objects. Low battery? The mower is programmed to automatically return to the base to recharge. Quieter than the gas-powered counterparts, these battery-powered mowers make about as much noise as a window air conditioning unit. Since they are relatively quiet and can be programmed to run on a schedule, imagine waking up in the morning to a freshly mowed lawn. The top players in the robotic mower field are implementing ledge sensors that improve maneuverability and offering additional features such as smart navigation, laser vision, lawn memory, mapping, and self-emptying function that will improve the efficiency and performance of these advanced devices. If you’re looking for those straight lines and total freedom from your trimmer, call your local lawn service. If you’re willing to settle for getting the job done, a robotic mower may be the answer to your lawn maintenance dreams. The technology is still being fine tuned and you can expect to lay out a lot of cash for the convenience.



Design Trends A new calendar year brings fresh design trends for homeowners to start incorporating into their homes. National homebuilder and developer Taylor Morrison offers insight into the design trends buyers are incorporating into their homes. Here are nine trends from the builder’s in-house design experts for 2019 based on the selections homebuyers are choosing today. Healthy homes. “One trend we’re seeing is a shift toward becoming eco-friendlier and bringing healthy lifestyles straight into our homes,” shares Lee Crowder, design gallery and model home branding manager for Taylor Morrison. “While there are a lot of different ways to achieve this look, one must-have is an abundance of plants. Bringing touches from the outdoors inside is not only an aesthetic choice, but real plants also provide the benefit of filtering the harmful chemicals out of your home.” Crowder also suggests opting for natural materials over manmade, ditching dirt- and dusttrapping carpet for hardwood and swapping highgloss paint for flat finishes. Low vs. high maintenance. Charlotte-based Taylor Morrison Design Consultant Brittany Wightman sees many single female buyers opting for aesthetics over easy maintenance or function. “Achieving an all-white dream living room is a little easier when there are fewer people—especially kids—living under one roof,” said Wightman. On the other hand, consumers with larger families are opting for finishes that are easier to maintain. “A simple way to make your life easier is by choosing finishes that don’t require a ton of TLC. Choosing quartz over granite and opting for larger tiles over smaller ones means less grout to clean.” Fashion-forward. “Fashion trends are bleeding into home décor and design,” said Crowder. “If you paid attention to fashion week, you would

have seen browns and tartan plaids being very prominent this year, and those are some of the same trends we’re seeing in furniture design and accessories. If you see it on the runway, you will start seeing it trickle down into home fashion shortly thereafter.” Earth tones. With many homeowners opting for an indoor-outdoor lifestyle, Wightman shared that incorporating earth tones in your home is an easy way to bring the outdoors in. There’s no place like home, so doing all that you can to ensure that it’s a safe, healthy and comfortable place will give you the peace of mind necessary to enjoy it to its fullest. Monochromatic mood. High-contrast, monochromatic looks are rising in popularity, especially in the kitchen. “Pairing dark finishes with stark white or grey cabinets will be a very popular look in the new year,” said Wightman. Pastels and jewel tones. Bring on the baby blues, mint greens and blushing pinks. “We’re calling these the ‘ice cream cone’ colors,” said Crowder. “But if pastels aren’t for you, bold jewel tones like emerald and sapphire are another popular option for the new year.” Unique finishes. Fun hardware finishes like black, rose gold and brass continue to gain popularity. “Black is a really important color for 2019 and you’ll be seeing it pop up everywhere—from countertops to hardware and faucets,” said Crowder. Flower power. “We’re seeing tons of floral patterns inspired by runway looks,” Crowder said. “Florals are a top trend in the fashion world right now, so it makes sense that floral wallpaper is making a comeback.” Cozy comforts. Also inspired by fashion runways is the Danish hygge look. Comfortable, relaxed items like cozy and soft rugs, sofas and beds are replacing the stark, tailored look. “Taylor Morrison homebuyers are investing a bit more into their larger purchases in order to ensure quality and comfort. I like to say—buy once, cry once,” said Crowder. (PRNewswire)
