Life and

Homes

No need to shop for me, thank you very much. My Christmas presents came early this year. Two grandsons! Parker David Lange made his appearance on October 25th and Night David DeMarché joined the family on November 26th. I love these little guys. Aren’t they cute little buggers? What more could a man wish for? Which makes me wonder what you’re wishing for this year. Tools, clothes, iPad, flat screen, vacation tickets, new car? After a year like this one, I suspect many readers may be wishing for “practical” things like enough money to pay the bills, a job, or enough food for the family. I’m honored to sit on the board of the local Rescue Mission where there’s no shortage of folks hoping for clean clothes, a meal or a warm place to sleep. So much to think about…

Night, David, Parker

David P. Lisi, RMC One thing I’ve observed throughout the year. It doesn’t matter whether I’m Real Estate Marketing Consultant sitting in the office of a company president or exchanging conversation 315-865-5845 • David@dslisi.com around a table at the Mission dining room - when it comes down to it, we’re all the same with our wish lists and dreams, good days and not-so-good days. Unlike ill-fitting shirts and too-tight jeans, our days, weeks and years don’t come with a refund or return policy. We each have 24 hours in a day and 365 days in a year. There isn’t enough cash in the world to buy happiness, peace, or even one more day. We have to purpose to make the most with what we have. I guess I have a few more wishes after all. I wish that wherever life finds you today, you’d count your blessings. I hope you’ll use whatever you have, little or much, to make a difference for someone less fortunate than you. And most important, I pray you’ll live life to it’s fullest and leave a positive legacy for the generations behind you. Because we each have one life. No exchanges. No returns.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

Find, Fix & Forget

Simple Weatherization Tips The weather outside may be frightful, but inside, many homeowners can still enjoy the comfort and coziness of warmth ... if they don't have to worry about cold air drafts and leaks causing the temperature inside to plummet like the climate outside. Luckily, for many homeowners, problem areas where cold air is sneaking in - and warm air may be escaping - can easily be found, fixed and then forgotten. According to the U.S. Department of Energy), the annual energy bill for a typical single family home is about $2,200. By properly sealing and insulating your home, you can save up to 10 percent on home energy costs. And, you don't need permanent, expensive draft-blocking solutions, such as installing new windows, adding more insulation or replacing old doors with insulated versions, to stay warm and reap the financial rewards. For leaks under doors and windows, look for a solution that will "hug" the bottom to create an airtight barrier. The Double Draft Seal from Duck brand offers two layers of protection from drafts, sealing underneath doors and windows from both sides, for maximum energy efficiency and thermal protection. For more information and tips to winterize your home, visit DuckBrand.com/HomeSmart.

1. The holiday shopping season can be an ideal time to maximize rewards program benefits. 2. Using a credit card at least a few times per year can help keep your credit score in good standing. 3. Purchase protection or extended warranty can provide you with peace of mind on expensive purchases. 4. Debit cards can provide the best of both worlds, with some offering credit card-style rewards programs and the built-in spending limits of cash. (ARA)

Thinking About a

Payday Loan? A payday loan, which is illegal in many states, is a short term loan of usually $100$500. The interest rates are very high, sometimes 400% or more. Typically. a borrower provides the lender authorization to take the loan amount and fees out of his/her checking account in a week or two, when the borrower is next paid. If the loan is not paid back at the end of the term, the loan is renewed and the consumer is charged more fees and interest. Under the federal Truth in Lending Act, the cost of payday loans must be disclosed in writing. The total amount financed and the annual percentage rate must be provided in writing before the loan is made. There are several alternatives to payday loans. Seek a loan from a licensed lender that makes small, unsecured loans. Obtain a loan from a credit union. Get a cash advance from your credit card. Make a pawn loan using a nonessential item as collateral. Speak with your creditors to see if they can

The prospect of buying a home can seem overwhelming for many who may not be aware of how to begin the process of shopping for a home or even a mortgage. To help consumers navigate this process, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) unveiled three how-to videos to help prospective homeowners: Shopping for Your Home - instructs viewers on assessing how much of a home you can afford, working with a real estate agent and what happens once you find the home you want to buy. Shopping for Your Loan - helps consumers use the good faith estimate to shop for the best loan, to determine how long an interest rate is available for a particular loan and how to identify key loan terms and costs of a particular loan offer. Closing the Deal- walks consumers through the actual closing process including how to make sure the loan they were offered closely matches what they encounter at the settlement table. The videos are accessible from both HUD and NAR’s websites as well as from www.youtube.com/HUDchannel. (Realestaterama)

Understanding

Roth IRA Conversions Everyone looks for ways to save money, and to make their money work harder - and longer. With pensions disappearing and reductions in employer match programs, it is important for Americans to consider financial planning tools that address long-term retirement and tax situations. One such tool is the Roth IRA. “Starting this year, Americans can, for the first time, convert a regular IRA to a Roth IRA regardless of income level. For many, it is an opportunity to invest money in one of these tax-advantaged retirement savings accounts,” explains Robert Fishbein, vice president and corporate counsel for Prudential Financial. Remember that you do

need to hold the Roth for five years to qualify for tax free treatment, Fishbein says, and if you need to access the funds before those five years and you are not age 59 1/2 or older, then a penalty tax may apply on amounts withdrawn. Of course, a financial planner is best suited to guide you with decisions regarding your own personal circumstances. (ARA)

Will this year’s holiday house guests be seeing the same drapes, throw pillows and wall decor they saw in your home last year? Or even the

Easy Decor Upgrades to 'Wow' Holiday Guests If your decor is looking tired - or you’re just plain tired of it - the holiday season is a good time to gift yourself with a few new items that will also refresh your home for guests. It’s easy to make a big decorating impact if you focus on sprucing up areas like windows, furnishings and walls. Consider these helpful hints:

L i f e and H o m e s

Central New York

Windows The cheapest, most high-impact way to make windows look better is to wash them. Seriously. For the price of a roll of paper towels and some window cleaner - and some elbow grease you can make your windows look great, not to mention brighten the entire room. Once your windows are sparkling, reward yourself for your hard work with some new window treatments. If the holiday hustle and bustle leaves little time for a run to the home decor store, online resources like SeventhAvenue.com make it fast and easy to shop for curtains. Whether you opt for traditional or contemporary, replace curtains in rooms where guests are most likely to gather, such as the kitchen, living room or family room. To top off the holiday spirit of your new curtains, replace standard tie-backs with some festive holiday bows. Furnishings Replacing every stick of worn-looking furniture 14

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 .

in your home’s “public areas” probably isn’t practical for your budget with the expenses of the holiday season looming. But you can refresh the furniture you have with a few simple steps: * Make sure it’s clean. Polish wood surfaces and vacuum upholstery. Dust and dirt will never be a designer statement. * Dress up older pieces with new cushions and pillows in eye-catching colors and patterns. A fresh pop of color can draw the eye away from less attractive surfaces. * If your furniture is just too tired-looking and replacing it is not in the budget, consider concealment. Slip covers and colorful throws are cost-effective ways to refresh older couches, loveseats, dining room chairs, armchairs and even recliners. Choose ones that accentuate your holiday theme, such as “Snowball” slip covers that offer a plush feel and bright colors in a material with a raised, snowball-like pattern.

year before that?

Walls Walls are usually the largest design element in any room, and updating them can completely rewrite the profile of a space. Painting walls is a low-cost, low-labor way to refresh a room’s atmosphere and set the stage for a whole new look - even if you just put the same furniture back into the freshly painted room. Giving walls a fresh coat of paint is well within the capabilities for most do-it-yourselfers, but if you’ve never painted before or are hesitant to take on the project just before the holidays, there are other ways to liven up your walls. Changing wall decor can be fast, effective and fun. Sometimes simply moving a wellloved piece of art from one room to another is enough to make you see the piece - and the room - in a new light. Or, if you crave something new without the hassle of in-store shopping during the holiday season, you can find wall decor from framed art and mirrors to wall hangings and tapestries online at websites like SeventhAvenue.com. The holidays and their hectic pace may make it hard to fight your own fatigue, but you don’t have to face the season - and all your house guests - with tired home decor. A few simple, cost-effective upgrades can make your home bright again this holiday season. (ARA)


Dreaming of a

'Green' Holiday Do you have your decorating, entertaining and gifting plans in place? If you're looking for ideas and inspiration, why not think green this year? This isn't just about holiday garlands, trees and wreaths. This is the eco-friendly and sustainable kind of green. And keep in mind that going green for the holidays doesn't mean being boring - you can incorporate all the glitz and glam of the season and still help the environment. Here's how:

Eco-friendly fresh face If you're looking to perk up tired rooms before holiday guests arrive, nothing changes the look of a space more dramatically and cost effectively than a fresh coat (and color) of wall paint. Dutch Boy's no-VOC Refresh Interior Latex paint fits the eco-friendly bill without sacrificing quality, an extremely important benefit. It even goes one step further - thanks to its innovative formulation featuring exclusive Arm & Hammer odor-reducing technology, Refresh captures, removes and locks common household airborne odors into the paint's film. Rest assured, it will keep your house smelling fresh throughout the holiday season and beyond.

Sustainable sentiments Americans purchase seven million greeting cards each year. Out of seasonal card sales, which account for half of total sales, 60 percent of these cards are Christmas cards. Imagine the number of trees it takes to produce that many cards each year, not to mention how much waste reaches landfills when the cards get tossed. Send cards printed on recyclable paper with eco-friendly inks instead of traditional cards. Or better yet, take the plunge and embrace electronic greetings: send your holiday wishes to friends and family via the Internet. While old-school Emily Post-types might not quite approve of this method just yet, your environmentally minded loved ones will thank you - and so will our forests.

Smart gifting

If you decide to completely go green and skip material gifts completely, give one from the heart by making a donation of your time and money in honor of the recipients at their favorite charities where many people can benefit from your generosity. It's not hard to make even small changes and go green for the holidays. By doing so, you'll be helping the environment and still be able to deck those halls in style. The two no longer are mutually exclusive. It truly is possible to make your holidays both sustainable and spectacular. (ARA)

L i f e and H o m e s

The option to add an eco-friendly twist to holiday gifts is on its way to becoming limitless. With so many environmentally friendly products on the market, it's easy to find a gift that's thoughtful, useful and sustainable.

Another option is to make your own gifts knit a scarf, bead a bracelet, bake a batch of goodies, get crafty with found items around your house. If you're not creative, there are plenty of websites where you can buy handmade items from artisans in the United States or even abroad (be sure to look for fair-trade websites, if you buy from overseas, particularly from developing countries).

â– 

Forget the old, energy-hogging incandescent indoor and outdoor holiday lights. Think LED instead. Strands made from light-emitting diodes are up to 90 percent more efficient than traditional holiday lighting. According to the Department of Energy, the best white LEDs have been found to have a useful life of

If you do decide to buy gifts at a bricks-andmortar store, why not consider buying local and visit that charming boutique you keep saying you want to check out? Most of the time, these shops carry items from local vendors. They also tend to offer many handmade and/ or eco-friendly products. Shopping local keeps money in your community and keeps small business owners thriving.

about 35,000 hours, or four years, of continuous operation. What's even better: You won't face the trauma of an entire strand blowing if one bulb dies. On LEDs, when one light goes out on a string, the others stay lit.

15 scenic acres adjacent to NY State’s Baron Von Steuben Historic Park in Remsen. Build your summer getaway, dream home or hunting camp. Close to shopping, dining, fishing, boating, skiing, snowshoeing, etc. Property borders a state forest and is within a mile of Wayne National Forest and major interconnected snowmobile trails.

L i f e and H o m e s

Oriskany

Nearly 1400’ of road frontage and approx 500’ from the road to the state park bordering the back. Develop in small lots with nice country homes, keep it all in one piece and make it your home or subdivide and sell a portion to make back your investment. Why would I sell this prime property? Because I relocated and can’t maintain it. This land is as good as you’ll find for the asking price of $45,000. Will subdivide. Make a reasonable offer and own it!

How to Keep Your Credit Safe:

Check it Often & Dispute Errors Checking your credit report regularly can help you avoid the pitfalls of bad financial decision making that can negatively impact your credit score. Knowing where you stand can also help you find inaccuracies in your credit report and correct them before they have long lasting effects on your credit-worthiness.

L i f e and H o m e s

Central New York

Under the Fair and Accurate Transactions (FACT) Act, you can request a free credit report annually from each of the three major credit reporting agencies - Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. If you want to check your report more often, that’s a good idea, but there are fees for additional reports or credit monitoring products. The things you’ll find on the report are: your personal information, your credit history, a record of inquiries made by other parties and public records (like liens or bankruptcies). Looking over the report carefully is important - any inaccuracies could have a significant impact on your credit.

24

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 .

While no other credit reporting system in the world compares to the U.S. credit reporting system, it is possible that, as in any complex data system, inaccurate or incomplete information may occur in your credit report. If you find an inaccuracy or any incomplete information on your report, you have a number of options for disputing it - online is the quickest, but you can also initiate a dispute by mail or phone. Credit accounts, bankruptcies, collections, liens, judgments, inquiries and personal identification information can all be disputed. But how do you file a dispute? Start by notifying a credit reporting agency like Equifax, who can do the work for you. They will quickly take action to investigate the matter with the creditor that provided the information. The creditor investigates the dispute and then responds to Equifax with their findings, including any necessary changes. Within a month of your dispute request, or 45 days if your dispute is based upon your

free annual disclosure report, either Equifax or CSC Credit Services (depending on who owns your credit file) will notify you of the results of its dispute investigation and provide you with a credit file reflecting the results of the investigation at no charge. Examine your credit file carefully to make sure the inaccuracies have been corrected or removed. If the information you disputed has been re-verified, it will remain in your credit file, but you can request that it be shown as disputed and you can add a statement of explanation to your file. If you dispute online with Equifax, you can check the status of your dispute on the company’s website and receive e-mail updates. Insurers, landlords, and loan providers can all view your credit file to gauge whether to do business with you. By checking your credit report regularly, you’re a step ahead of the game. Having a credit reporting agency help with any disputes will make it easier to keep your report in good shape. For more information, go to www.equifax.com. (ARA)


Don’t Let Your Holidays Become

an Opportunity for Criminals

For many of us, the holidays are a mixture of fun and frantic shopping, joyful times and a hectic pace. Criminals, however, see the holiday season as full of opportunities - the perfect time to take advantage of seasonal chaos. “With everything going on, the holiday season is no time to let your guard down when it comes to home security,” says Jim Boots of Protection 1 (www.protection1.com), the largest privately owned security company in the U.S. “Criminals know that our holiday habits can leave our homes, belongings and personal information vulnerable. It’s important to be vigilant throughout the year, and especially during the holidays. According to the FBI, there’s a burglary every 14 seconds in the U.S. And, with homes and cars filled with new gifts and gadgets, the holidays are an especially lucrative time for thieves.” Fortunately, by taking some simple precautions, you protect your home, purchases and identity from predators this holiday season. Secure your home “Burglars know many people travel during the holidays, and many more will leave brandnew, valuable merchandise in their homes when they’re out,” Boots says. “A criminal is more likely to target a home that looks vulnerable. The best thing homeowners can do to protect their homes is to make it clear to burglars that their house won’t be an easy mark.” Reduce the risk of burglary by: * Putting inside and outside lights on a timer to make your home look occupied while you’re away. * Keeping bushes, trees and decorations from obscuring the view of your front door from the road.

* Suspending newspaper and mail delivery if you’ll be away for several days.

just in case you’re away from the house, asleep or unable to respond.

* Arranging for snow removal in case of a fresh snowfall while you’re away.

Stay safe when you’re out Thieves know our holiday shopping habits and can make us vulnerable to theft while we’re out and about. From breaking into cars to “shoulder surfing” for credit card information and PIN numbers, criminals take every opportunity to brighten the holidays for themselves. When holiday shopping, keep these safety tips in mind:

Consider installing a cost-effective home security system, provided by a trusted company such as Protection 1, that allows you to control everything remotely from a mobile or Web-based system such as a smart phone or laptop. A home without a security system is two to three times more likely to be burglarized, according to a study by Temple University. With Protection 1’s eSecure service you can check on, arm or disarm your home security system remotely, communicate with the system via text message, and even place sensors on specific areas inside your home that you want to protect such as jewelry boxes, TVs or even the gifts under the Christmas tree. The service also provides portable surveillance cameras that you can place in your home, or take with you to monitor the inside of your hotel room while you’re out. While you’re keeping bad guys out, don’t overlook fire safety as well. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are the top days for home candle fires, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. Christmas trees account for 200 fires annually, resulting in six deaths, 25 injuries and more than $6 million in property damage, the administration’s statistics show. Remember, never leave candles burning and don’t overload electrical sockets with decorative lights. However, should there be an accident a monitored system from Protection 1 automatically dispatches the fire department

* Never leave shopping bags, wrapped gifts or other valuables visible inside the car. Always place them in the trunk. Thieves are more likely to break into a vehicle if they can see the loot in it. * Carry only the credit card you need and one piece of ID when shopping. Leave your Social Security card at home or in a secure place. * Be aware of who might be looking over your shoulder as you type a PIN number. * Never allow a store clerk to take your credit card out of your sight. * Enroll in an identity theft protection service like LifeLock, which monitors your credit and can alert you if a piece of your personal information is used incorrectly in an application for credit or services. “By taking some precautions, homeowners and shoppers can ensure the holidays stay bright for themselves and their families - and not for criminals,” Boots says.

Mortgage Loan Tips Finding the right mortgage loan when purchasing a house can be very hard and frustrating. Especially, if it is your first time of taking a loan. Buying a house and taking a mortgage loan on the house is a big step for you since it involves a lot of risk. You probably don’t know what to do or where to go. Do not allow other people take advantage of you ignorance. Take the time to learn everything there is to know about mortgage loans. Here are some mortgage loan tips to guide you on what to do. The very first step you need to take is to shop around for lending companies offering mortgage loans. You can do research in the internet or personally talk to people who are experts in the field. Check out not only three but more than six lending companies and get estimates or quotes from each company to be able to compare. Then as you get to know each company inquire about their interest rates both in fixed and adjustable, fees and services being offered. With all the needed information at hand you can now compare one company to another. Then it would be easier for you to decide.

advance payments for your loans. The company will obligate you to pay the lending company six months worth of interest that you just paid in advance. So in the long run you still had to pay the interest even if you have made advance payment of the loan. Quicksand loans should be avoided at all cost. This kind of loans contain combinations of short-term, high up front fees, high rates, balloon payments, exorbitant late fees and prepayment penalties. All these could swallow all your equity and ruin your financial position. Review everything and in details before you sign any contract. You should know what every paragraph is saying. Go for lending institutions that offers the best deal and one you are most comfortable with.

You should have an idea on what mortgage plan will work best for you. What interest rate will be sustained by your current income? Take the time to study the advantages and disadvantages of the different mortgage loan types. Educating yourself will be an advantage for you. All these mortgage loan tips will hopefully help you make sound decision that will work best for your situation.

100% Purchase Money Loans

Never allow a company to encourage you to commit fraud by claiming that the loan is intended for business use when in fact it is for personal, family or household use. A loan that is based in wrong information will never get far nor prosper. Get to know and understand everything about the loan you are taking. You have to know why you are paying it and know the different fees you are paying for.Every detail of the loan should be familiar to you and understood by you.

Find out what is your credit report and check for any errors in the report. A good rating on credit report helps in the early approval of your loan.
