5 BENEFITS OF BUYING A HOME Tax time is here and many people, when they see their tax bills, will be wondering what they can do to pay less next year. Buying a home continues to provide great tax benefits as well as other advantages for Americans looking to build wealth. Below, top-ranked national real estate expert and consumer advocate Rhonda Duffy shares five benefits of buying a home. “If you’re caught in a renting rut or uncertain about joining the ranks of homeowners, you should consider the benefits of buying a home,” says Duffy. “Although home prices are slowly inching upward, now is still an excellent time to buy. This is especially true if you’re a first-time homebuyer. Here are five benefits of homeownership:” Tax advantages: “When tax time rolls around, homeowners are entitled to deduct certain expenses related to their mortgage payments and owning a home. Mortgage interest is typically deductible. In the early years of your loan, this is a sizable amount because a large portion of your mortgage payment is interest. You can deduct mortgage points, which are fees you pay to receive a lower interest rate. You can also deduct your property tax, and you might be eligible to deduct your private mortgage insurance.” Appreciation: “When you rent, your money goes to someone else. There’s no benefit to you other than a roof over your head. When you buy, you earn appreciation as the value of your home goes up. Instead of paying rent, you’ll pay a mortgage and invest in future returns. For example, if you buy a house for $150,000 and five years later, it’s valued at $200,000, you have a $50,000 return on your investment.”

Creative Living 49 Digest.indd 4

Catching an upswing in home values: Although the increase in home prices nationally slowed last year, prices are expected to continue to rise this year. “If you want to buy before you’re priced out of the market, now is the time to make your move,” Rhonda says. Low interest rates: “While mortgage interest rates are creeping upward, they remain at relatively low levels, especially compared to rates that were in the 8 to 9 percent range 20 years ago. Even as recently as 2007, rates were in the 6 percent range. Pride of ownership: “Perhaps the most satisfying of all the benefits of buying a home is the sense of gratification you feel when you relax in your own home. You can remodel and update as you please, you don’t have to rely on a landlord for repairs, and you have a sense of stability.” Reprinted with permission from RISMedia. ©2018. All rights reserved.

"Lori has exceeded my expectations on every level. Linked up with her through USAA for the purchase of a house and couldn’t be happier. Initially wasn’t sure who to go with and we really lucked out finding her. She truly listens, cares, and makes you feel at ease. Moving from Virginia to Whidbey Island was stressful enough and it was nice knowing she had us taken care of from this end. Highly recommend using her if you’re in doubt of who to use when coming to Anacortes or Whidbey Island area." -William and Carlie

Happy Buyers!

Select the RIGHT TREE for the RIGHT PLACE in Your Yard It has been more than 140 years since the first Arbor Day was observed in Nebraska. It has since become a national observance that takes place on the last Friday in April in most states and recognizes the importance of trees as well as tree selection, planting, and care. A properly selected and planted tree can add beauty and energy efficiency to your landscape. A poorly selected and planted tree can become high maintenance, dangerous, and short-lived. The Energy Education Council has advice to help you select the tree that is best for your yard.

Creative Living 65 Digest.indd 1

7/23/20 12:58 PM

“This is an excellent time of year for tree planting,” says Molly Hall, executive director of the Energy Education Council. “With some research and preparation, your tree will be a healthy and beautiful addition to your home for years to come.” One of the first considerations is the purpose of your tree. Will your tree be needed for shade, a windbreak, or beauty? These considerations will affect what tree is suitable for you, and where it should be planted. Dense evergreens provide a good wind block, while leafy deciduous trees provide shade in the summer. No matter what purpose the trees will serve, it is always best to choose native trees. They require less maintenance and will live longer. You can get more information about native growing trees from a regional university Extension office or a state department of natural resources. In addition, the Arbor Day Foundation has a free tree wizard tool that will help you select the best tree for your needs. It is available at www. arborday.org/shopping/trees/treewizard/intro.cfm. The next step is to decide where you will plant your tree. For a windbreak, plant trees to the north, northwest, and west. For shade, plant trees to the east and west of your home. Remember that fast-growing trees are more brittle and likely to be damaged in a storm. Plant these trees farther from your home to protect your home from damage.

If you live in an area that is prone to wildfires, there are additional considerations to help keep your home and community safe. It is recommended that you limit the flammable vegetation and material around your home for at least 30 feet on all sides. Contact your local fire department for more information. Also be sure to select planting locations that will not interfere with your utility lines or power poles. Power outages or interruptions occur when trees and branches come into contact with overhead lines. Electrical arcing and sparking from a wire to a nearby branch can cause fires. Tall growing trees with a mature height of greater than 40 feet should be planted 50 feet away to avoid future pruning. A mature height of less than 25 feet is recommended for trees planted near power lines. Keep in mind that trees should never be planted directly under power lines, near poles, or too close to electrical equipment. Tall growing trees near power lines must be pruned to maintain a safe distance from the wires. If you have trees that are growing into power lines, contact your electric provider. Never try to prune them yourself. Before planting, take proper precautions to stay safe. Be sure to call 8-1-1, the national “Call Before You Dig” number, a few business days before you want to plant. It is a free service that gets your public underground utilities located and marked, so you can dig safely away from them. Or, contact your local landscaping or lawn care company, and they will be able to help you plant your trees.

Even if you have no immediate plans for leaving your home, it’s a good idea to approach renovations with resale value in mind. Upgrades that are likely to appeal to future buyers protect your investment while also improving your enjoyment of the home. One key to a successful renovation is figuring out how to personalize the space without making it so customized that it’s not attractive to other potential owners. For example, eliminating a bedroom to create a giant walk-in closet may help achieve your dreams, but losing that bedroom can be a major hit to your home’s value. These renovation ideas - which include both cosmetic touch-ups and more labor-intensive suggestions - can help boost your home’s value.

Creative Living 65 Digest.indd 3

7/23/20 12:58 PM


OPEN SPACE. Older homes were

often designed with a boxy, formal layout that is less conducive to most modern families’ needs. Today’s open floor plans offer functionality for everything from keeping an eye on the kids while making dinner to entertaining guests. This type of floor plan can also make small rooms feel larger and invite more light into darker parts of the house. The most cost-effective way to create an open space is to remove non-loadbearing walls (load-bearing walls help support the roof; while they can be removed there’s typically quite a bit more time, labor and expense involved). Removing a wall may not be that complicated unless you encounter plumbing or HVAC ductwork that needs to be relocated. You’ll likely have some electrical outlets to move, and both the floor and ceiling will need attention to remove lingering signs of the former wall.


aspect of home improvement is visible at first glance like a fresh coat of paint; some value-boosting upgrades are more behind the scenes. One example is climate management. If you renovate a space that needs better climate control, or if you add a new room where extending the existing ductwork is impractical, a split-ductless HVAC system may be the perfect solution. The ductless design saves HVAC contractors time during installation, therefore saving homeowners money.



Features like crown molding and other wood accents such as chair rails are elegant upgrades that can elevate a home’s value with a relatively modest investment. An office or dining room is the perfect place to introduce these design elements to add a bit of formality to the space. You can also find crown molding in spaces like the living room, with the molding coordinating with built-in shelving flanking a fireplace.


Although paint is one of the easiest ways to personalize your home, it’s also one of the least expensive, simplest ways to improve its value and appearance. A fresh coat of paint, inside or out, can create an appealing illusion of newness no matter

Creative Living 65 Digest.indd 4

the age of your home. For maximum resale value, stick to neutral tones so future buyers can focus on envisioning the place as their own, without the distraction of your own vibrant choices. If you don’t like the thought of boring beige, consider adding accent walls for pops of color that can be easily changed down the road.


LIGHTING. A room’s ambiance can be completely transformed with lighting. For multipurpose rooms, an option like dimmer switches lets you customize the lighting to fit the use, which can vary throughout the day. A well-lit living room is essential for a large gathering or a small group gathered for game night. That same space can be equally inviting for an intimate conversation or a casual movie night with the lights turned down low. One of the best parts is minimal experience is needed to swap out standard switches for the more versatile dimmers. Plus, in today’s technologydriven world, there’s an app for seemingly everything, including lighting. Homeowners can control the ambiance from their phones by installing smart light bulbs and lighting strips.

GRUNGE-FREE GARAGE. Even though a garage’s functionality is the top concern for most buyers, a dingy, unkempt space can be a real turnoff. One way to instantly brighten and refresh the space is an epoxy coating on the floor. Applying the coating is relatively easy and once dry it helps prevent unsightly stains and damage in the future. Combine that with a thorough sweeping, wiping down walls and other surfaces, and organizing the clutter to create a more inviting space you can utilize to the fullest. BETTER BATHROOMS. Many homeowners approach a bathroom upgrade with big projects in mind, like swapping out the vanity, replacing the tub or installing tile flooring. However, it’s possible to make a noticeable impact with much smaller changes. Simply updating bathroom fixtures and fittings such as shower heads, faucets, towel racks and lighting can transform the space with minimal effort and far less work and expense than a largescale renovation.

DIY, OR HIRE A SERVICE? Investing the time into proper yard care and maintenance every week can be tough to do. Like almost anything involving home maintenance, there are pros and cons to doing lawn care yourself. Understanding what’s involved in proper lawn care is the first step to determining which choice is right for you.



If you want built-in outdoor time every week to catch up on your favorite podcasts or soak in that vitamin D.

Mowers, trimmers, edgers, weed whackers – it takes a lot of equipment to maintain a yard. And that equipment can require a lot of maintenance, like changing oil, filling up gas tanks, replacing trimming line, not to mention, the cost that uptake requires.

COMPLIANCE. If you have a homeowner’s association, you’ll probably have to perform regular maintenance to meet their lawn regulations. Hiring a lawn service will make sure your stay out of the HOA doghouse.

GET IN A WORKOUT. If you enjoy working up a sweat whenever you can, lawn care provides an extra dose of exercise. Weekly or bi-weekly mowing burns some extra calories. And if you have kids, make them earn their keep by getting them to rake those dead leaves out of the yard, or bag up the weeds you pulled out of the flower beds.

Creative Living 65 Digest.indd 5

CONVENIENCE IS WORTH THE COST. How much money is your time worth? In St. Louis, the average price of a lawncare service is $39 – not too bad for saving yourself hours of work. At the end of the day, the choice between DIY lawn care and hiring a service is your choice to make. But make that choice easier by contacting your local landscaping and lawn care company for an estimate – you might be surprised by just how affordable it is.

Your kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s a place where family and friends gather. It’s also a space where you may seem to need more space, whether you’re making breakfast for the kids or hosting a big dinner party. Using innovative wall-mount door hardware, you can unlock your kitchen’s potential by freeing up the “real estate” traditional swinging doors take up. Due to their unique space-saving possibilities, versatility and aesthetics, wallmount sliding doors can make your kitchen more open and inviting. A standard hinged door consumes 10-14 square feet of floor space to swing open and shut, putting kitchen space at a premium. Single or converging wall-mount sliding doors allow you to utilize this floor space for kitchen furnishings, storage, extra mingling room for guests and more. They also give kitchens a more spacious look and can enhance your home’s design flow, making it more welcoming and facilitating movement between rooms, which is essential for gatherings and larger families with children. To maximize your kitchen’s footprint and optimize functionality, an option like wallmount door hardware from Johnson Hardware can provide a new world of architectural possibilities for your kitchen, regardless of size or layout. Ideal for wider kitchen entryways, converging wall-mount door hardware allows doors to glide smoothly as they open whenever you want a free flow for entertaining, or close for privacy during meal preparation.

Creative Living 65 Digest.indd 8

Converging doors can add sophistication or create a cozy feel, depending on the hardware configuration and door style you choose. Available with or without fascia in either clear satin or bronze anodized aluminum, the U.S.-made hardware and track exceed ANSI safety standards and can successfully complete 100,000 opening and closing cycles. You can also add your own valance to match the door material and trim. Wall-mounted sliding doors also work well for kitchen pantries and large recessed shelving areas where you want to conceal clutter and ensure clean, streamlined spaces. With Johnson’s array of hardware configurations, you can create personalized looks that integrate the door designs and materials you desire with options for doors up to 125 pounds, which are equipped with wall-mounted jump-proof aluminum box tracks and adjustable door hangers for easy installation, as well as options up to 400 pounds, featuring wall-mounted, heavy-gauge I-beam tracks and smooth-rolling, ball-bearing four-wheel hangers. Installing wall-mount sliding door hardware in your kitchen - and beyond - can be an easy yet high-impact improvement that reduces space constraints while adding warmth, functionality and appeal to your home. So contact your contractor or home remodeler today to have one installed.

Help Your Home Fight Back Against the

SUMMER HEAT Summer is here, and the sun is out in full force. Just like your skin is susceptible to sun damage, so is your house. Make sure your home is protected by focusing on these four essential elements.

Creative Living 65 Digest.indd 6

7/23/20 3:19 PM




To make sure you get the most out of your exterior paint, choose a top-quality brand that will better withstand sun damage over time. Depending on how much direct sunlight you have on your home, tree borders are a good way to add shade to parts of your yard. This will add life to your paint job, and the trees will add more “life” to your lawn and landscaping.

The roof also absorbs the brunt of the sun’s power and can be the first to show sun damage. There’s not much you can do to avoid this, but if you inspect your roof closely each season, and make necessary repairs, you’ll stave off the damage.

WINDOWS Keep your cold AC inside and the summer heat outside by checking the caulking around your windows. You may also want to consider adding awnings to prevent heat from penetrating, or keeping the blinds or curtains closed during the hottest parts of the day. This will keep sunlight out and help cut down on that utility bill.

Creative Living 65 Digest.indd 7

DECKS One of the top ways to protect your deck from summer heat, especially if your deck is made of wood, is by properly sealing it with a high quality, weatherproof, UV resistant sealer. The sealer will help your deck fight back against fading and warping. Another option might be installing a retractable deck awning, which you can pull over your space during the sunniest part of the midday heat. Or consider adding a sunroom instead of a deck, which gives you a more functional, year-round, space.
