“Fuelish”

With Your Lawn Mower Care

When it comes to getting the most from a lawn mower or other power equipment, using the wrong blend of fuel or skipping off-season maintenance just won’t cut it. The fuel blends and ethanol percentages that may be right for cars—an ethanol concentration greater than 10 percent—are not recommended for power equipment or marine engines. Also, any fuel blend stored in an unused engine may degrade over time and harm small engines. That’s why, experts say, it’s a good idea for consumers to take lawn mowers and other power products to an authorized dealer at the end of each season. “This is a good way to allow a trained professional to properly dispose of unused fuel and ensure the product is ready for next season,” said Mike Rudolph, senior manager, Honda Engines. Consumers can also use fuel stabilizer when not using an engine for more than 30 days. To learn more, visit the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute at www.opei.org. (NAPSI)

Fortunately, you can maximize the living space you have by converting special-use rooms into highly functional rooms that can be used frequently, such as a mudroom, multipurpose living room or an outdoor living space. Don’t forget about those unused nooks and crannies, which can be ideal areas for adding extra storage space. For example, an underutilized alcove can be turned into a customized reach-in closet with a ClosetMaid® do-it-yourself laminate system. An overdecorated small space can look cramped, so cut the clutter. If you can’t get rid of it, hide it by supplementing the furnishings you already own with pieces that double as storage. Built-in seating in the dining room can add much-needed storage while accommodating extra dinner guests. Affordable and stylish options include ClosetMaid Cubeicals®, which come in 2-, 6-, 8- and 9-square designs. They can be placed under the window or used as a side table by the couch and even as a mini entertaining area. Finally, define the areas in your abode and consider furniture that fits the scale of the room. An accessory such as a mirror can become the focal point of a room. It also adds dimension by reflecting natural and artificial light.

From sky-rise lofts to tiny-size apartments, there are innovative and ingenious ways to get the most out of your space with organizational solutions that beat those small-space blues.

Today, many new homes and apartments are designed smaller with affordability in mind, as Americans cut back on everything from personal spending to the size of their homes. Several recent studies from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) indicate that the days of the “McMansion” are over, as consumers look to downsize. In fact, the average size of new single-family homes in America is now about 2,438 square feet and 46 percent of first-time homebuyers purchased homes smaller than 1,500 square feet, according to the NAHB. As homes continue to shrink in size, storage becomes a real challenge.

Quick And Easy Steps To Protect Your Gear While the weather can wreak havoc on homes and yards, with the right tools, homeowners can easily and quickly protect and maintain their houses and their gear, even under the worst conditions. The first step is to have the right tools, such as a silicone spray to provide a slick coat of protection for your gear, repel water and inhibit rust. In the garden and yard, you can spray it: • On shovels and garden tools to keep dirt or snow from sticking; • To protect and waterproof lawn ornaments and outdoor wood benches; • On bird feeder poles to keep squirrels and other varmints from climbing up them.

newsShorts National Do Not Call Registry Accepts Cell & Home Phone Numbers The National Do Not Call Registry gives you a choice about whether to receive telemarketing calls at home or on your mobile phone. Most telemarketers should not call your number once it has been on the registry for 31 days. If they do, you can file a complaint at www. donotcall.com. You can register your home or mobile phone for free. Telephone numbers placed on the National Do Not Call Registry will remain on it permanently due to the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law in February 2008. You can add your home and/or mobile phone number to the registry two ways: online at www.donotcall.com or by calling 1-888-3821222 from the phone number you wish to verify.

Outside and around the house, it can: • Prevent moisture buildup in outdoor outlets; • Keep doorbells from sticking.

Dust Bowl?

Dust comes from several sources and is difficult to eliminate completely. Increased dust could be a sign that it is time to change a dirty furnace or air conditioner filter or vacuum cleaner bag. Activities that produce dust (such as sanding) can also be a source of an increase. Dust can also be introduced into your home through air leaks in ducts, or air infiltration through leaky doors and windows. To help reduce the amount of dust in your home, take the following steps: Change or clean your furnace and air conditioner filters once a month or according to the filter

manufacturer’s instructions. Temporarily seal the filter in place with metal-back duct tape. Write the date on the tape with a marker so your know when it was last changed. Your clothes dryer should be vented directly to the outside. Inspect the vent duct. Make sure it is attached securely to the dryer. Check that it is clear of obstructions (e.g. lint). Check for holes that leak air. If vent duct is damaged replace it with a metal duct. The vent duct should be cleaned at least once a year. Consider leaving your shoes at the door so you don’t track outside debris-often the largest source of dust -into your house. Sealing air leaks can help to reduce air infiltration that could be a source of dust. Sealing duct air leaks, especially the return duct, can help prevent dust from being circulated throughout your house. (Energystar.gov)

Cost Effective Ways to Boost Curb Appeal Anyone who's ever bought, sold or even just looked at a house can tell you first impressions matter. A house can be filled to the rafters with luxury touches, but if it lacks curb appeal, few potential buyers will ever step in the door to see what's inside. With real estate sales still sluggish across the country, curb appeal is taking on a new meaning for many homeowners. While an attractive home exterior can still boost potential resale value, homeowners are also looking at curb appeal as a way to enhance the enjoyment of their homes. Giving the exterior of their home a facelift not only makes the house stand out on the street, it also allows homeowners to "move up" without the expense of remodeling or moving.

curb appeal while stretching your budget. Quality materials retain their beauty over time better than cheaper materials. * Illuminate. Light is a powerful accent, and, thanks to the availability of easy-to-install solar lights, you don't need to pay a professional to light your landscape. Solar lights - readily available in home improvement stores - provide decorative illumination to driveways, walkways and gardens. * Introduce shade. Arbors and trellises adorned with flowering vines are not only beautiful in warm months; they're a great way to add areas of shade to your landscape. They can even be used to block the scorching heat from the afternoon sun from parts of your home's interior. Building an arbor or trellis is well within the capabilities of

Fortunately, many curb appeal-enhancing projects can be cost-effective too, yielding significant improvements for a modest investment. "Projects can be inexpensive and simple while adding tremendous value and curb appeal," says Mark Clement, HGTVPro.com how-to expert and host of "MyFixItUpLife."

* Choose materials that are durable and stylish. Skimping on materials may seem like a great way to save money, but you could end up spending more in the long run if you have to redo a job that was first done with lower quality materials. Purchase the best quality materials you can afford - not only will they look better than cheaper goods, they'll last longer and provide more enjoyment and value. * Dress up the exterior with accents. Adding touches like accents to gables, posts and beams, drain chains in place of downspouts or planter boxes made with beautiful, sustainable materials like Western Red Cedar is a great way to improve 8

* Add a splash of color to your landscape with lowmaintenance plantings that require little attention. As an added "green" step, consider plants that require less water, too. Your local home extension office can help you identify what types of plants will grow best in your region. * Think "green." Whenever possible, choose materials that are truly sustainable, like Western Red Cedar. Sustainable materials are ones that have been harvested and/or manufactured through methods designed to reduce their impact on the environment. "Natural, long-lasting materials, like real wood, return beauty, durability and value," Clement says. (ARA)

If you're looking for low-cost, high-impact ways to create or improve curb appeal, consider these ideas: * Make small improvements that have a big impact. Simple touches like repainting the front door, window trim and shutters, planting flowers, and switching outdated light fixtures can create a whole new look. Plus, these simple improvements have the advantage of being scalable. Instead of re-siding the entire house, you can freshen the facade by tackling smaller portions, such as a porch or garage. Later, if you want to continue the improvement, you can re-side other areas of the facade.

How to Make Your Deck an Outdoor Living Room Nothing beats relaxing in the shade or entertaining a group of guests on your own private deck. When you take the time to plan your deck for the way you live, the result can be a versatile living space and a value-boosting addition to your home.

We b r i n g p e o p l e a n d h o m e s t o g e t h e r .


Trent Boozer, publisher of Extreme How-To magazine, notes his readers have made it clear that decks are one of the top projects they love to design and build. The Internet is full of deck plans and planning tools - and with the range of decking products and accessories on the market, every deck can take on a personality of its own, he says. Personalization is what makes the deck an extension of the home, says Rick Preble of Deckorators, the leading deck accessory brand that embraces the concept of deck personalization. "The idea of an outdoor living room has really materialized as people have reattached to their existing homes," says Preble. A costeffective way to add square footage and upgrade your lifestyle without moving is with a deck. With all the deck products and accessories available today, homeowners can customize their outdoor rooms." Deckorators has made the process of mixing and matching different deck accessories and building materials easy with a new, easy-touse online design program: the Deckorators' Deck Visualizer. The online tool is free and provides homeowners a way to visually discover the different design options they like best for personalizing a deck.

Homeowners who want to build or who are renovating an existing deck will find new trends for 2011. One material making its move onto decks is stone.

"Stone or simulated stone on a deck has become possible with new products, and it's another example of interior design trends and the mixing of various elements making their way to outdoor living areas," Preble says. Experts agree that putting the time into planning your deck up front and knowing what your product options are is the best way to ensure you end up with a space your family will embrace as a true outdoor living room.

Michael Beaudry, executive vice president of NADRA, says consumers are definitely hungry for deck design ideas and information on new products. NADRA offers resources to help consumers with deck and rail design and deck safety. The organization's website also provides access to more than 1,750 different building products companies.

"This deck design program is fun for homeowners to use and is a great tool for deck planning," says Preble. "We work with hundreds of deck builders, and they appreciate having this when working with clients. It allows

The North American Deck and Railing Association website (nadra.org) is another good place for consumers to start when gathering information for a deck build. The organization has a large gallery of photographs of decks that have received national awards for design or construction.

Deckorators cast stone Postcovers, which install over rail posts, are one new product in high demand. The postcovers provide the same look and feel as natural stone columns, but are designed to install over basic wood posts. Postcovers are hand-painted to look like cobblestone, fieldstone or stacked stone. The simulated product costs far less than real masonry work and makes it possible for doit-yourselfers or contractors to add simulated stone columns to a deck.

The Deck Visualizer allows the user to set the virtual deck environment to a lake or backyard view and then change the deck accessories for limitless combinations. Users can select the color or grain of composite or wood decking, select the style of metal or even glass balusters, add baluster infill centerpieces, change railing colors, and add post caps, lighting options and even stone.

Economy & Housing Market

Drive Smaller, Smarter Home-Remodeling Projects

Things may be looking up, but the economy remains sluggish. That reality, coupled with tight lending and home resale uncertainty, is driving consumers to prioritize home improvements based not just on immediate need, but also on potential appeal to future buyers. For the most part, it is best to make useful improvements that will appeal to a wide range of buyers down the road, say experts. Proceeding cautiously, homeowners are therefore thinking twice before undertaking major projects. When they do decide to remodel, they are sticking with smaller, tried-and-true improvements like adding a bathroom. Bathroom additions are a wise renovation option, according to Remodeling magazine's 20092010 Cost vs. Value Report. An added bath can be expected to recoup just less than 60 percent of its cost at resale.

L i f e and H o m e s

Cost-effective solution Fortunately, creating a new bath need not be costly - especially in spaces that lack belowfloor drainage; that is, where a bathroom does not currently exist, such as a basement, an attic, a garage or even a bedroom closet. In these situations, many plumbers recommend installing macerating, above-floor plumbing. "With a macerating, or up-flush, toilet, there is no need to break up the floor to install drainage lines," says Al Warren, a licensed plumbing contractor for more than 30 years and owner of Warren Brothers Mechanical Contractors in Stafford Springs, Conn. Warren uses Saniflo brand macerating plumbing systems. "This technology," he continues, "makes it possible 26

We b r i n g p e o p l e a n d h o m e s t o g e t h e r .

to inexpensively install a brand new bathroom in any room in the house, including the basement." Up-flush technology isn't new, having been invented a half-century ago, but its application is growing rapidly. These systems pump waste and water from toilets and sinks upward through small-diameter piping that transfers the waste to the sewer or septic tank. Unlike sewage ejectors, up-flush systems evacuate waste immediately through this piping, rather than storing it in a holding tank. William and Jane Sprague from Annapolis, Md., wanted a bathroom in their basement family room, but they didn't want the high cost and expense of digging up the concrete floor to create drainage. In addition, space for the proposed bathroom was limited. Up flush plumbing saved the Spragues money and simplified their half-bath remodeling project. "We've had a lot of compliments" on the new bathroom, says Jane Sprague. "It's very small, but I love it. It's worked out perfect for us."

Multi-generational households Bathroom additions remain extremely popular, and with the increase in extended-family households, what could be more important to personal convenience and privacy than adding a bathroom? Recent U.S. Census data showed that a record 49 million Americans now live in multi-generational households. That rising trend will likely impact future buying needs, so

savvy homeowners are making strategic improvements now. When it comes to bath additions, Saniflo up-flush systems can help. "Time and again, clients ask me for advice and guidance to update their bathrooms without breaking the bank," says April Bettinger, owner of Nip Tuck Remodeling in Woodinville, Wash. "They are happy to have recommendations for products that will hold up well, provide a useful life and look nice at the same time," she says.

Appealing to future buyers Here are some additional tips for making the most of your bathroom-remodeling investment, whether you are creating a new space or upgrading an existing one: * Choose neutral colors that make decorating easy. * Install a pedestal sink and a recessed medicine cabinet to reduce crowding in small baths. * Install grab bars in the shower and around the tub. Position them so that small children as well as adults can easily reach them. * Choose child-friendly rounded edges for vanity tops. Learn more about low-cost above-floor bathroom systems by visiting www.saniflo.com or calling (800) 571-8191. (ARA)


There Are Still

Great Reasons To Buy A Home In spite of the economic climate that most of the country is dealing with today, there are still a lot of good reasons to buy a home. Regardless to the state of the economy, the prospect

Currently the market is saturated with houses for sale making it a buyers market. Price tags on many have decreased considerably over the last several years. If you buy now, you will likely find a great deal on the house of your dreams. If you choose to negotiate you might find you can get a better deal.

Not everyone realizes this, but you can deduct the interest that you are paying on your mortgage from your income taxes. The tax breaks that you will probably get as a homeowner usually greatly outweigh the taxes you will pay as a renter.

This is only a few of the reasons to buy a home right now if you can. Eventually the economy will stabilize again and some of these opportunities will be gone. Home ownership can be a very rewarding experience. If you can afford to realize the dream right now, then you should.

Many times it is difficult to find rental properties. If you are looking to rent housing in some of the small towns, it can be nearly impossible to find a place. By owning your own property

Right now, there are thousands, even millions of properties to select from. This list continues to grow as banks look to eliminate properties that are in their possession due to foreclosure or because they simply did not sell.

â– 

Another, and perhaps one of the biggest benefits is that once you buy the house, it is yours. You can paint it or remodel it in any fashion that you please. If you want to remove walls and add another bathroom, you can. Any remodeling you do that increases the value of the property will benefit you. When you rent, even if the landlord will allow you to paint or do some minor remodeling, it will be of benefit to them when you move out.

you can be rest assured that you will have a permanent place to live, without the threat of being asked to move.

March

Interest rates are also historically low. As recent as 2 years ago they were at 6%. You might think that it would be beneficial to wait and see if these rates drop even lower, however by waiting you are taking the chance that they will instead rise. If this happens you will miss out on this opportunity that could be a once in a lifetime opportunity. By buying now you can enjoy the benefit of low rates and if they drop more, you can probably refinance your mortgage loan and be able to still get the lower rates.

of owning their own home is still a dream come true for many people. With the equity that you can build in your home, this is also a long term investment in your future.

What is a Discount Point & How Will It Affect My Mortgage Rate? When it comes to getting a low interest rate for a mortgage loan, the best way to get the lowest rate is to buy down the rate. The buying of discount points to lower the rate can save you money over the long term of the loan, but it is important to know whether a discount point will help you save money. What Is a Discount Point? First, discount point or a buy down is the term referring to the cost of reducing the interest rate. Usually a discount point is a percentage of the loan amount. One discount point refers to one percent of the loan amount. For example, if you are applying for a $200,000 home loan, then one discount point would cost $2,000. A discount point can reduce your rate on average by .125% to .375%. The cost of reducing the loan rate can change from day to day when mortgage rates are updated.

month is a savings for you. So as long as you keep the mortgage past the breakeven point, then it is a good idea to purchase a discount point. Another reason to add a discount point is when the seller is paying for your closing cost. This is a way to get a lower home loan rate and not have to pay for the charge yourself. With today’s market, several sellers are paying for buyers closing cost. Of course, there are limits to what the seller can pay.

Premium Pricing A discount point helps lower the rate, but a few people would rather take premium pricing and

For more information on discount points or premium pricing, contact a mortgage advisor. David White is a Sr. Mortgage Consultant who specializes in home loans (www.txhomeloanteam.com). He has over 12 years experience and he helps his clients with their Dallas home loans - www.txhomeloanteam.com/dallashomeloans. (Source: uberarticles.com)

100% Purchase Money Loans NO Downpayment • NO Monthly PMI

So, when should you consider adding a discount point to your mortgage? The best way to figure out the advantages of discount points is to consider how much the cost will be and what the savings will be over the lifetime of the loan. Each point you pay will reduce your loan rate and also lower your monthly house payment, but each point will also increase your closing cost.

The Break Even Point The breakeven point is when the cost of the discount point and the monthly savings evens out. For example, if you pay $2000 in points to reduce your rate and save an extra $50 per month, it would take 40 months to recover the cost of the discount point. Any payment beyond the 40th

reduce closing cost. Premium pricing will reduce the closing cost by a percent of the mortgage and by doing so, raise the rate of the mortgage. Again, it is important to know where the breakeven point is. For premium pricing, the idea is to keep the loan only for a short period and have the loan refinanced or paid off before the breakeven point.
