Professionally Speaking

Dear Community,

Looking Back at Your Tax Filing for Hidden Treasures

Now that “Tax day” has past and many first time homeowners have taken the opportunity to realize tax savings and tax credits from the federal First-time homebuyers tax programs, I would like to suggest that renters revisit their tax filing to see what future tax advantages homeownership might have for them. Tax deductions for homeowners are plentiful, so keep these guidelines in mind as you revisit your return for 2009. I would suggest that you might want to talk with your tax preparer. First, know that if you deduct home expenses you have to file form 1040 and itemize your deductions on Schedule A. While some additional work is involved, the rewards might be worth it. Second, remember that the mortgage interest on your home loan is deductible. You can calculate the amount of interest on a mortgage by using a “Mortgage Calculator” tool available on the internet at You may also be able to deduct origination fees or “points” on your loan. Real estate taxes are also deductible. Third, certain home improvements can qualify for tax deduc-

tions. An improvement is classified as anything that adds to the value of the home—for instance, making a room handicap accessible or adding a deck to the back of your home. Always keep receipts and records. Don’t forget that if you upgraded to energy-efficient Energy Star windows, appliances or water heaters, these improvements may be eligible for a tax credit. Check to see if your improvements are included. Consult with your tax preparer if the loan interest for improvement maybe deductible. Hopefully, after you see the impact that homeownership can have on reducing your tax liability (and improving your refund) you will give a Moore County Realtor® (complete listing of Realtors at a telephone call to start your search for the Moore County home of your dreams. Remember, this is the best time to buy- interest rates continue to be at historically low rates and the inventory of home gives you great choices.

Decorating on a budget - from the ground up

(ARA) - Spring is a time of renewal. The drab outdoors bursts forth with vibrant color, as tiny shoots emerge from the ground to blossom brilliantly under sunny skies. Nature decorates first from the ground and then spreads its beauty throughout the landscape. So why is it that so many overlook flooring when refreshing their home decor after a long, drab winter? This year, take a cue from Mother Nature and start your spring decorating from the ground up. While refreshing rooms with bright new paint colors and lively window treatments is an important step in any spring decorating project, don't forget the floor. Too often, homeowners fail to update flooring when redecorating a room and wind up at odds with their goal to create a brand-new, fresh look. Today, most consumers find

themselves following a strict budget, and flooring is expensive to replace, right? Think again. It's easy to update a tired room and outdated floor without breaking the bank. Stylish but budget-friendly fiber-backed resilient sheet flooring like Tarkett FiberFloor, which earned a prestigious "BestBuy" rating from "Consumers Digest" magazine for value and durability, gives you the best of both worlds. FiberFloor not only looks great and mimics natural flooring but also stands up to the stomping, jumping and everyday life found in homes. "In this economy, homeowners are still redecorating, but they're doing it smarter," says Mario Allard, Tarkett Residential director of resilient products. "They want dependable products that provide ongoing value and look great."

Today’s modern fiber-backed resilient floors stand up to water, moisture, scuffs and scratches. And yes, they’re easy to clean up, as well.

With value, performance and the good looks it delivers, it's no wonder fiber-backed resilient is today's fastest growing segment in the flooring category. What's more, it also comes in a wide variety of designs to meet any personal style. Are you funky and eclectic? Do you gravitate toward a contemporary look? Or do you like something more traditional and austere? There's fiber-backed resilient sheet flooring out there for any taste and budget. Also, don't be afraid to think outside the box. While many homeowners want to replicate the look of attractive natural materials - slate, bamboo, stone and hardwood - resilient flooring, like FiberFloor, also comes in a vast array of colors and textures, providing stylish options for any decor. "Savvy homeowners have discovered that fiber-backed resilient sheet flooring products aren't their grandmother's vinyl," notes Allard. "Today's options offer incomparable design, style and durability at a price that doesn't throw a carefully balanced budget off track." When selecting a new floor, be sure to keep comfort in mind,

Special Ad Section - T h e P i l o t

too. A floor might look good, but it might not feel good underfoot, have poor insulation properties or carry sound noisily - all undesirable comfort factors that should be taken into account during the selection process. That's one of the reasons today's fiber-backed resilient products have comfort features like improved foam density, which delivers added performance and durability, not to mention warmth, comfort and a quiet living space. Once the perfect flooring has been selected, it's easy to fill the rest of the space with bold, cheerful colors thanks to paint, window treatments and fun accessories like cushions, vases and artwork. "Making the right flooring choice first really pulls the rest of a room together," Allard says. "Once you lay the foundation in this case, an attractive, new floor - the rest of the design elements easily will fall into place . . . all with your budget in mind."

New RESPA Rules Help Consumers

On January 1, new regulations were enacted that could save American homebuyers nearly $700 million. By clarifying settlement fees and closing costs, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) now makes it easier for mortgage borrowers to calculate settlement fees and closing costs. A new standardized Good Faith Estimate (GFE) form requires that mortgage lenders and brokers combine most fees into a single “origination charge.” This form, along with HUD’s new settlement cost

FRIDAY, MAY 21, 2010

booklet, must be provided to the borrower within three days of receiving a loan application. Charges listed on the GFE are now grouped into three categories: 1. Costs controlled solely by the loan originator, which cannot change prior to closing. 2. Services that can be selected by the loan originator or the borrower, which may increase by as much as 10 percent before closing. These might include items such as title insurance or appraisals. 3. Third-party services selected by the borrower, such as

By Victoria Spannaus Wells Fargo Home Mortgage

“I will provide an outstanding mortgage experience from application to closing” homeowners insurance, which aren’t subject to any limits. Keep in mind that the GFE can be revised and reissued prior to closing day under certain circumstances, including changes to the borrower’s credit rating, property appraisal, or loan amount. Details on closing costs RESPA’s new regulations are available in HUD’s booklet

The design, construction, and operation of a home must focus on energy and water efficiency, resource efficient building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, and must take the home’s overall impact on the environment into account. Stewart Construction has crafted an outstanding concept home, aptly names “GREEN ACRES” to showcase today’s green realities. This unique green home recently achieved the coveted “Gold Level” certifica-

tion from the National Home Builder’s Association Green Building Standard – the first gold certified in Moore County. Stewart Construction’s GREEN ACRES HOME provides a wide range of sustainable features, both inside and out. To conserve water, the home includes dual flush toilets, low-flow shower heads and plumbing, filtered water faucets and solar hot water heaters (2) and solar radiant heat floors. There is also a 1,000 cistern that collects and distributes captured rainwater for usage on plants, smart landscaping and irrigation. The home’s indoor air quality benefits begins with a “conditioned” or sealed temperature


controlled crawlspace and also benefits from a high efficiency programmable zoned heating and cooling system with MERV 9 HEPA filters. Also included as energy saving features is an ENERGY STAR® Advanced lighting package to deliver daily energy savings, as well as solar tube to deliver natural daylight while reducing energy usage. The model also features ENERGY STAR® appliances, low volatile organic compound paints and carpeting. Additional sustainable materials used throughout include quartz countertops, hardwood floors and radiant barrier roof sheathing. Stewart Construction is making the future “sensibly green”

with their GREEN ACRES HOME. This unique home bridges the gap between ENERGY STAR® and extreme green technologies. Its true value is not measured in dollars and cents, but in the results delivered – reduced environmental footprint and improved quality of life.

Building a house isn’t rocket science (or at least it didn’t used to be...)

This past week I attended the National Green Home Building show as well as a two day Advanced Green Building Science seminar. At one point the formula Ts=Ti- T(Rc/Rt) was introduced and taught. I won’t bother you with the details of what this is used for but during the subsequent algebra problem solving session -- it struck me being a builder isn’t what is used to be – and that is a good thing. In the past ten years residential building science, materials, and practices have advance further than in the prior one hundred years. Today’s high performance homes are light years ahead of traditional methods in terms of energy efficiency, indoor air quality, resource efficiency, etc… Here are just a few topics that you may find informative as related to high performance home construction and remodeling. “Outs-a-sulation” We typically think of in-sulating the walls of a home from the inside but a modern approach is to also insulate the outside of the home with either a Structural Insulated Sheet (SIS) product or a thin XPS blue board foam. In a traditional home 20% of surface area of the wall are vertical studs. Since we traditionally only insulate between the studs in a wall – nearly a quarter of the exterior wall surface isn’t insulated allowing the PAGE 12

studs to transfer large amount of heat into or out of home depending on the season. “Conditioned Attics” A modern energy saving approach is to reduce the temperature of the attic above the home; particularly if the attic contains heating and air conditioning equipment. You can image how hard an air conditioner has to work to create 60 degree air while being in a 130 degree attic on a summer afternoon. To achieve this the attic is sealed, the underside of the roof in the attic is sprayed with insulating foam, and the attic is heated and cooled. While heating and cooling additional space to save energy seems counter intuitive it is a proven method to greatly reduce energy costs. A slightly less complicated approach is to use high tech plywood type product on the roof that has an aluminized surface on the bottom side facing the attic. The foil finish doesn’t keep the roof any cooler; but the shiny surface is an extremely poor conductor of heat and therefore the roof deck isn’t able to radiate the heat from the shingles into the attic space. This high tech plywood alone can reduce attic temperatures by 20-30 degrees. “Advanced Framing Techniques” Traditional framing in the United States places an assembled wide solid wood

beam called a headers over every door and window in a home. This area above each opening in the house cannot be insulated due to this beam. Modern methods place a half inch of sheet of XPS insulation board sandwiched between the two structural members of the beam. Thereby insulating the beam and eliminating 60-130 square feet of un-insulated outer wall area in a typical home. Other techniques such as “California Corners”, and “2x6 tee blocks” ensure that insulation can be placed continuously around the entire perimeter of the outside wall; which isn’t necessarily the case in a traditionally framed home. “Indoor Air Quality”: Nearly half of a home’s heating and cooling loss is through air leakage. Through the use hightech house wraps, flashing tapes, sealants, and quality windows and doors – the vast majority of these leaks can be eliminated. However, once the leaks are eliminated there may not be sufficient fresh air changes naturally occurring in the home. A high performance home will have a “blower door” test to determine its air exchange rate (AcH). This test will determine if a fresh air supply is needed and what the proper size should be. So why bother eliminating all of the air leaks if we have to introduce fresh air into the home any-

way? In a traditional home, during the summer, warm moist air leaks into the house from the crawlspace, through all electrical and plumbing openings in the wall, around windows, etc… The issue is this warm moist air contains water vapor which will contact the drywall and insulation that has been cooled by the air conditioning. The vapor can then condense as liquid water in the interior of the wall not unlike how water condenses on a cold tea glass in the summer. In a modern high performance home the fresh air is brought in a through a controlled duct, filtered, passed through conditioning system, and dehumidified before it is introduced into the home. In addition to these topics hundred of modern, thoroughly tested, and proven building technologies exist to create a modern high performance home. As they say “it isn’t what it used to be…” and that is a great thing when it comes to modern building.

Keller Williams Pinehurst Works for Food! 73,000 agents give back to their communities

<SOUTHERN PINES, NC> <May 14, 2010> — Committed to setting a new standard in business citizenship and community outreach, Keller Williams Realty held its second annual RED Day on May 13, 2010. RED Day, which stands for Renew, Energize and Donate, is a community service initiative engaging the company’s associates in giving back to the communities they serve across the United States and Canada. “Given the current economic climate, we know there are countless non-profits or community projects that are in need of resources and volunteers. We see this as an opportunity to give back to the communities that support our agents and offices,” said Mark Willis, CEO of Keller Williams Realty, Inc. “With 73,000 associates, we have the numbers to go out into our communities and really make an impact – and there couldn’t be a better time to lend that helping hand.” RED Day is dedicated in honor of the company’s Vice Chairman, Mo Anderson, because of her constant commitment to the company’s culture and tireless support of her community. “As real estate agents, we live and breathe our neighborhoods and our communities,” said Anderson. “I am thrilled that our agents are taking this PAGE 14

opportunity to show the world that the third largest real estate company in the United States is a leader in real estate….and in our community. I can only imagine how this will grow in the coming years.” Keller Williams Pinehurst Market Center collected food from shoppers at Harris Teeter, Lowe’s Foods and Food Lion in Seven Lakes to help stock the local Food Bank. “We know that time is money for our agents, but we also know that without the support of our communities, we wouldn’t have the opportunity to succeed and grow in today’s market,” said Terry Rainer, Team Leader of the Keller Williams Pinehurst Market Center. “Today we were proud to deliver to the Food Bank 4,425 pounds of food, along with cash donations sufficient to provide an additional 352 meals, which is the single largest donation ever made by a single contributor.” The Pinehurst Market Center, located at 206 Commerce Avenue, Southern Pines, NC, was established in 2009 and has 62 associates. In the calendar year 2009, the Market Center shared more than $75,310 in profits with its agents. To learn more about Keller Williams Realty, call Terry Rainer at 910-528-2078, or visit
