A ‘short sale’ can help you avoid foreclosure Kurtis W Prinz, Broker/ Realtor®, CRS, CDPE, SFR, SRES, WNC WHS A lifelong native of the Asheville area, Kurt Prinz has been involved in Kurt Prinz almost every aspect of Real Estate, from investing, property management, valuation, to building and remodeling. As a Realtor, he redirected his Real Estate practice to Short Sales execution in 2006. Among his designations, he is a designated Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource and a Certified Distressed Property Expert. Kurt is a member of Asheville’s Dream Team with Keller Williams Professionals in Asheville, NC.

The number of homes that have entered into some stage of foreclosure has risen in February compared to previous months, while the numbers of homes that are actually taken by the banks continue to decline. One of the driving factors in this phenomenon continues to be the successful execution of short sales, throughout the country. While the process can be cumbersome and tedious, a successful short sale still provides the best possible outcome for both the homeowner as well as the mortgage holder. Realizing this, many of the larger banks have implemented outreach programs to offer cash incentives to prequalified home owners to participate in voluntary cooperative short sale programs. Relocation incentives ranging from $3,000.00 to $45,000.00 are paid at closing, directly to the home owner, upon the successful execution of the short sale.

In order to take advantage of these programs, the property must be sold on the open market by a licensed real estate professional. These offers have time limits… so time is of the essence. It is important to enlist the skills of an experienced professional at any time, but imperative where short sales are concerned and when so much is riding on the outcome. I have been approached by one of “The Big Four” lenders to contact pre-qualified short sale candidates in Western North Carolina. If you are contacted by me, just know that these offers are legitimate, and at no cost to you. If you think you may qualify for one of these programs, or are interested in participating in a short sale, or just have questions as to what options may be available to you…. Please feel free to call our office. Foreclosure can and should be avoided… we are here to help.

the question: I am buying a property where the seller just established and new driveway across her land and started using a neighboring subdivisions road? Is that ok, because I don’t want to buy a problem.

the answer: Well, speak to your attorney first and inform them of the situation. This is not ok. Common sense dictates that you cannot just decide to connect to another properties roadway without a formal agreement to do so. Hopefully your attorney can negotiate the matter for you and obtain a valid right of way, but be mindful that this process can take a lot of time to figure out.

Lighting ideas for remodeling or building

(StatePoint) If you’re building or remodeling your home, as more Americans are doing these days, consider a fresh approach to your lighting both inside and out. “Lighting sets the mood for a space and illuminates daily activities, “says Jeff Dross, trends expert at Kichler, a manufacturer of decorative lighting, landscape lighting and ceiling fans. “A good lighting design will balance form and function for beauty, safety and convenience.” To maximize the appearance and functionality of your rooms and outdoor spaces, there are several things you should know before getting started: • Style: Consider your taste and how your lighting will interact with your décor and architecture. Is your style contemporary, traditional or transitional? If you have heavily ornamented furniture, wallpaper or window dressings, consider lighting that’s cleaner and simpler for a balanced contrast.

“The trend today is cleaner and simpler designs, regardless of your style preference,” says Dross. “Keep it simple.” Finish: Today’s most popular fixtures feature lighter colors like polished nickel or chrome, and textured or distressed finishes such as aged bronze. Layers: Multiple light sources can minimize glare and shadows, while adding depth and dimension, so layer spaces with ambient (overhead), task and accent lighting. Ceiling fans are a favorite source of ambient lighting for a great room or family room. • Functionality: Think about how you plan to use each space you’re lighting. For example, if your dining room serves more as a homework and hobby station than a formal place to gather, you`ll want to install a maximum amount of light. If you entertain there, be sure to install a dimmer. Take advantage of the experience and expertise of a designer, contractor or lighting

professional to help you determine how your lighting can accommodate your daily life. • Dimensions: Pick appropriately sized lighting fixtures for the size of your rooms. A good rule of thumb for chandeliers is to add the two dimensions of your room to arrive at a minimum diameter. So a 12x12 room should have a fixture with a minimum diameter of 24 inches and be no larger than the width of the dining room table. • Energy-efficiency: Consider new lighting technologies such as LED lighting, which can save you money on electric bills. • Wiring: Know where the outlets and electrical boxes are. This is especially important for new construction or large remodeling jobs. • Sunlight: Natural light plays a large role in the type of lighting you need. Look at where the windows are and how much light they let in. Pay attention to plants or trees that may partially block the sun’s rays.

Make your garden environmentally friendly (StatePoint) Spring is here, which means it’s time to slip those green thumbs into some gardening gloves. And if you want to feel truly good about what you grow, consider upgrading your garden to be more planet-friendly.

According to a study published in the Wilson Journal of Ornithology, billions of birds die annually worldwide from collisions with windows. So if you’re going to send out the mass invite to these beautiful creatures, don’t forget to make

Here are some ideas to consider: Grow Your Own Dinner Grow the vegetables, herbs and flowers that you would normally purchase for your dinner and floral arrangements. Local is more sustainable because it reduces the carbon footprint associated with transport. And you can’t get more local than your own backyard! Encourage Pollination Pollination is crucial for agricultural production and the health of the ecosystem. Unfortunately, many pollinating insects are highly susceptible to environmental changes and have in recent years, suffered major population decline. You can help local pollinators thrive by planting a variety of native species of varying colors and shapes and reducing your use of pesticides. Be Bird-Friendly No garden is truly complete without regular visits from birds. Encourage flying visitors by installing a feeder and bird bath.

it hazard-free for their arrival. Without affecting the appearance of your home, you can make your windows safer for birds by applying static-cling decals. For example, WindowAlert creates decals that look like frosted glass to people, but brilliantly reflect UV light for birds. To create a complete visual barrier, consider filling in the gaps between decals with UV Liquid dots which are invisible to humans, but visible to birds. More information on preventing bird col-

Sawdust from chemically treated wood, diseased plants, and even walnuts, when composted, can create soil that’s hazardous to both plants and people. This spring, make your garden the envy of the neighborhood for more than just its beauty. With a few easy tweaks, you can reduce your family’s waste and create a safe haven for birds and pollinators.

Start composting for your garden (StatePoint) It doesn’t matter if you’re a gardening novice trying to supplement your dinner table with some home-grown veggies or an entrepreneur that earns a living off the land, composting is a simple way to go green and help save the environment. You don’t have to be an environmentalist to compost, either. Compost, which is organic matter that has been decomposed and recycled and used for fertilizing soil, is great for your garden and will help reduce landfill waste. In addition, composting in your home garden will help you save money. “Using compost means your garden will be more cost-effective because you will have to spend less on fertilizers, insecticides, and fungicides for a given harvest of any crop,” says Brett L. Markham, author of “The Mini Farming Guide to Composting,” the latest in his Mini Farming book series. Across the country people are embracing the concept of self-sufficiency and preparedness, “mini farming” anywhere, from rooftop urban gardens to suburban backyards to larger land plots. Growing food is easier than ever and composting is a huge part of this movement. Markham, who also has written the bestselling “Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre” as well as mini farming guides to fermenting and vegetable gardening, offers these gardening

tips to get started on composting: • Composting is a natural form of recycling, so use food waste, grass clippings, coffee grounds and even paper as compost. Just be sure to shred the paper first to speed up the process. • Start your compost pile in a convenient spot, and make sure it is semi-shaded and well-drained. • Add bulking agents such as wood chips to

accelerate the breakdown of organic materials, allowing the finished material to fully stabilize and mature through a curing process. Add leaves, straw, or hay along with grass clippings or green manures for plenty of bulk. Each layer should be no more than two inches so that the grass clippings or leaves don’t get matted down to form a layer impermeable to air. • Keep the compost moist. Either water it yourself or let rain take care of it. The compost should be moist, but not soaked. • Cover the compost pile to help retain moisture and heat. This will also help prevent the compost from being overwatered by the rain. • Turn the compost pile with a shovel or a fork to aerate the pile. It is important to water the pile as you turn it as well. Turning the pile adds oxygen to the compost which is necessary to get the most out of your pile. • Once you add the compost to your garden, you’ll be ready to start planting in two to five weeks! You can learn more about composting, mini farming, and self-sufficiency at Composting is the first easy step to helping the environment while growing your own food. So make the most out of your garden, and start digging!
