They’re at it again. Those gutsy “experts” are putting their heads together and issuing predictions for what path we can expect the housing market to take in 2013. Since their forecasts were made while dangling over the much-debated fiscal cliff, it’s not surprising they offered nearly as many disclaimers as predictions. Watch for rising home and rent prices, suggests The Fiscal Times, along with more short sales, fewer foreclosures, an increase in first-time home sales and rising mortgage interest rates. The days of stellar foreclosure deals have come to an end, they say, but for those with the nerve to trudge through the process, short sale deals will abound.

Forbes suggests a modest rise in home prices and over one million 315-527-1315 steph@lifeandhomes.com total new construction housing starts. However, in their words, “This will be a substantial percentage gain over 2012, but remember that a 30 percent gain from diddly squat is still not too far away from diddly squat.” Well said.

The chief economist of Fannie Mae suggests we can expect overall housing and mortgage activity to gain momentum in 2013. Market Watch credits low interest rates for an upsurge in 15-year mortgages which will enable homeowners to build equity faster than borrowers with longer-term mortgages. That sounded promising until they continued with; “That means they could be more likely to get approved for home equity loans and borrow a larger amount against their home.” Sounds familiar. How soon we forget.

Kitchen trends for 2013:

'Revamping kits'

offer high-end results If you're tired of looking at your outdated kitchen, but feel replacement would be impractical, you're not alone. In 2013, consumers will be trying to find the beauty in the beast. Projects that help the old look new will be the next big makeover trend - especially in the kitchen where remodeling becomes more pricey."Revamping kits" that refinish countertops, cabinets, and appliances are already in growing demand. Here are three top kitchen kits that can easily, quickly and affordably help your existing kitchen look high end. Granite remains the No. 1 choice for kitchen remodels, but the standard cost of granite runs from $50 to $110 a square foot (including installation). While there's nothing functionally wrong with laminate, Corian and Formica, they're not always what homeowners are looking for. So if your countertops need an uplift without a hefty price tag attached, try granite paint.

Appliances are a big investment and many times are purchased all at once to achieve a harmonious, matching look. This holds many homeowners back from making the jump toward the most desired appliance look, stainless. New Liquid Stainless Steel paint is made with 100 percent stainless steel; and kits are available for refrigerators as well as a ranges and dishwashers. The stainless "Range and Dishwasher" kit, gives a brushed stainless look for $24.95 and the Liquid Stainless "Fridge" kit costs $69.95. Each kit comes with a specialized application tool that creates the brushed metal appearance over your existing appliances. These kits can be found at Liquidstainlesssteel.com. Before you throw out the old, try revamping your countertops, cabinets, and appliances, helping what you have look like a million bucks for less than $200.

Five tips to get the best deal on the right tax software

Finding the right tax software can be just as important to ensuring the best possible return as making sure you have all the necessary documents and information.

* Shop around for the best deals. In addition to just finding the program that will give you the best price, you might be able to find special deals on certain programs. For example, you can find seasonal discounts and cash back rewards for top retailers like TaxAct, TurboTax and H&R Block at FatWallet.com. Browsing online resources like this can help you get the best tax software deals. * Find out what the others are saying. If you're having a difficult time deciding on the best program, browsing online forums can help you make your decision. In addition to finding deals at FatWallet.com, you can access forums on finance and the latest tax tips to help you make smarter, money-saving tax filing decisions. * Know what you are getting. If you're using a free software program, you'll want to make sure it covers both the federal and state versions of your returns. There's nothing worse than being surprised by an unexpected fee once you've finished your filing and are ready to send off your returns. If your situation calls for a more expensive option, make sure your product delivers needed enhancements. Advanced packages should offer clarity of current tax laws, links to IRS publications and features that will help explain the best way for you to complete the return. * If possible, complete your return online. Using an Internet-based program as opposed to a desktop program will help ensure that you have access to the latest updates to tax codes. When you file using an online program, your records will also be stored online on a separate server, which can be a great help in case something happens to your personal copy of your returns.

And when you factor in all the different tax software products available and the associated costs, finding the right program can be just as complicated as the process of filing your taxes.There are many factors to consider, but there are a few things than can make your purchasing decision easier. Here are five tips

* Determine what type of program you need. If you're simply filing your personal income taxes and don't have much in the way of additional enterprises, the basic version of a program will do. If you run a small business, or are selfemployed, you'll want to look for programs that have versions for single-owned LLCs, sole proprietors, consultants, contractors or whichever classification applies to you.

Modern cabinets are what everyone needs to bring their kitchen from "old-fashioned" to "in fashion." However, throwing the old cabinets out may seem drastic. If your cabinets work just fine but the color is keeping your kitchen in the '90s, try Nuvo Cabinet paint. Nuvo Cabinet paint is a

one-day process that does not require any cabinet removal or a separate primer. Just apply two coats of your desired Nuvo shade and within hours your cabinets will be ready for use. Each kit covers 100 square feet, which is the standard cabinet coverage for the average-sized kitchen. One kit costs $69.95 and can be purchased from nuvocabinetpaint.com.

to help ensure you get the best tax preparation software for your situation at a price you can live with.

Giani Granite Paint kits allow you to give outdated countertops a granite look for $69.95 per kitchen. Each kit comes with the primer, mineral paints, applicators and a demo DVD to help you update your Formica, laminate, wood, tile and Corian countertops. One granite kit can transform an average L-shaped kitchen countertop (or about 16 running feet) in one weekend and the process is easy enough for a first-time painter. The included specialized sponge replicates popular styles of granite, and the high-gloss finish adds durability and shine. Further granite countertop paint information and availability can be found at gianigranite.com.

Bold Colors Are Here To Stay In Home Decor Colorful home decor is back in a big way—and here to stay. Color experts say people are increasingly at ease with bold colors and are showing their creativity with intensified hues. Expressing Creativity Homeowners have come to appreciate the newfound infusion of vibrant hues into all aspects of everyday life. According to PPG Pittsburgh Paints color expert Dee Schlotter, the influence of new technologies and a society propelled by ideals at an ever-evolving pace are driving colorpacked palettes and providing a new platform for self-expression. “Homeowners are articulating their creativity like never before. Fresh, bold color has permeated our daily lives, becoming an increasingly dramatic character in home decor and overall design,” Schlotter said. “Homeowners who were once leery of color are now embracing it with open arms and a brand-new level of sophistication.”

Syracuse, NY

With the abundance of bold colors emerging in home decor, the method for integrating color and lifestyle will vary from person to person. For example, some people retreat to the basics for simple yet adaptable, thoughtful use of home design elements. Others may prefer to express themselves through loud, unexpected design as fashionable, futuristic technology takes center stage.

How To Use Bold Colors

L i f e and H o m e s

Here are a few tips to help you embrace your creativity through bold colors: • Remember, every room should have a theme and color is what ties that theme together. Choose bold colors that you can use more than once—in wall paint, fabric patterns, furniture and decorating accents. 4

We br 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 .

newsShorts • A room’s color palette is never about just one color. It’s about the combination of all the colors in a particular space. If bright wall colors aren’t for you, try incorporating bold hues into other design details, from window treatments to flooring and fabric. • Test first. Use a large test sheet and a “time test”—view your color in all light: morning, noon and night. Live with it for a few days to make sure you love it. • Never hold a paint chip in front of a white wall, since bold colors will appear darker or more intense on the wall than they do on a small chip. Hold the paint color next to furniture, window treatments and flooring for a true “feel” for how the color will look in the room. • Go bold on one wall. Try fuchsia (PPG Rose Marquis) or teal (PPG French Riviera) or even black (PPG Black Magic) on one wall and neutral colors on the other walls for a punch of interest and appeal. • If you are going to go bold, then really go for it, suggests PPG Pittsburgh Paints’ Schlotter—try fuchsia or teal. Through the Voice of Color program, PPG Pittsburgh Paints analyzes societal trends affecting color and design and incorporates them into new color palettes.

Count The Cost of DIY Before tackling any home improvement project homeowners should always consider total dollar cost, safety, and convenience, in addition to the

amount of time they will have to invest and their expectations of the level of quality of the finished product to help determine if they should DIY or hire a professional. Additionally, they should ask themselves these questions: Do you have the knowledge and skill to do the work? Be realistic with your skills and knowledge and consider the end results. If you lay concrete for a new sidewalk, will it look as professional as you would like? Do you know enough about the chemical composition of concrete to end up with a sidewalk that will last?

Can you make the situation worse? If you find you're in over your head, you may wind up calling a professional to bail you out. Not only will you pay a contractor to fix the initial problem, you run the risk of having to pay even more to fix what you messed up.

Can you bring harm to yourself and your family? You need to assess the risks involved to determine if the expected savings of doing-it-yourself is worth the risk. Both electrical and plumbing projects are ones you should typically leave for the professionals.

What is the value of your time? Your time is valuable, and likely your spare time is even more valuable. While you may be able to handle painting the outside of your house, ask yourself if it is worth paying someone to scrape the old paint off, apply primer and two coats of paint and then clean up (likely in less than a week) versus you spending a month or more of evenings and weekends to do the same job.

Affordable Upgrades

Can Give Your Home a

Whole New Look

Sure, kitchen and bath renovations get all the glamour and credit for offering high returns on your investment when it's time to sell your home. But a host of other, often-overlooked improvements can also offer great ROI - while completely changing the look of your home at a fraction of the cost of bigger projects.. "Improvements like upgrading your home's stair case can give a home a fresh look quickly and affordably," says Dale L. Reutter, president, WM Coffman, which has been making and distributing stair products for more than 130 years. "These upgrades can offer impressive ROI, and also enhance the enjoyment and usability of your home."

If you're looking for home improvements that will pay off in the long-term, plus give your home a fresh look now, consider these high-impact, lower-cost upgrades: * Change the front door. The door to your home is not only a key element of its exterior look, the door can set expectations for what guests will see inside your home as well. A new front door makes a statement for both the inside and outside of your home. When you sell your home, that new front door can return as much as 73 percent of the initial cost for steel doors and nearly 54 percent for fiberglass doors, according to Remodeling Magazine's Cost vs. Value Report.

* Layer and upgrade lighting in key rooms such as living rooms and family rooms. Replacing outdated lights can create a fresh, appealing atmosphere in a room. But don't stop at overhead fixtures. Layer your lighting by adding new floor lamps and table lamps. A variety of lighting sources and types allows you to change moods in a room with the flip of a few switches. * Repaint ceilings and baseboards. While you may be aware of the benefits of painting walls, many homeowners overlook the value of painting ceilings and baseboards. Repainting a ceiling - even if it's plain white - dramatically brightens a room. The same is true for painting trim; the freshness of updated trim can draw the whole room together. So the next time you paint a room, be sure to do ceilings and trim as well. While these upgrades can help you cost-effectively change your decor, when you're looking for high impact, flexibility and affordability, updating your stairway is one of the best investments you can make. Many modern floor plans place the stairway

front and center, making it the first design element guests see when they enter. Yet when it comes time to renovate, many people overlook the design potential of this functional element in their home. The look and positioning of the staircase affects the flow of the home and sets the tone for the entire house. Modifying a staircase can open up a floor plan and increase usable square footage. It can also help you redefine the theme of your decor from traditional to contemporary or even modern. For example, replacing old wooden balusters with iron can help you create a cohesive look with other metallic design elements in the home, such as doorknobs or faucets. A variety of products - from decorative balusters to newel posts and newel tops - make it easy and affordable to create a custom look for virtually any stairway. WM Coffman offers a range of products in a variety of styles to fit with any home decor theme. To learn more about staircase options and for a free stair design tool, visit www.wm-coffman.com.
