Warding off water woes

ater damage can occur almost anywhere in your house. Water-using appliances and fixtures, such as refrigerators with icemakers, dishwashers, washing machines, toilets and water heaters are common locations of leaks.

Unfortunately, slow leaks at these appliances and fixtures are often times impossible to see until it is too late. If it goes undetected, a slow leak can lead to rotting house framing and subfloors, and can be a precursor to a catastrophic leak that can release several gallons of water per minute, causing extensive water damage. A water leak detection system may help prevent these problems. There are two types of water leak detection systems: passive and active. Passive leak detection systems are intended to alert you of a leak. They generally sound an audible alarm tone and some may also feature a flashing light. Passive systems are frequently battery-operated, stand-alone units. They are inexpensive and easy to install. Some simply sit on the floor while others may be wall mounted. A moisture sensor is located on the floor and activates the alarm when it becomes wet. Passive leak detection systems are especially useful in locations where it is easy for someone to hear the alarm such as near refrigerators, dishwashers, or toilets. Active leak detection systems usually generate some type of alarm, but also perform a function that will stop the water flow. They feature a shut-off valve and some means to determine that a leak is occurring. Most devices use moisture sensors to detect a leak. Other systems use a flow sensor and a timer to determine that something is leaking and the water needs to be turned off. An individual appliance system, which costs $50 to $150, detects a leak from a specific appliance, such as a washing machine or water heater and shuts off the water supply to that appliance only. You can often install these systems without the use of special tools. A whole house system, which costs $500 to $1,500, sends an alarm when a leak is detected and automatically shuts off the main water service. Some models can also be integrated with a local or central station security system. Contact a local contractor, building official or hardware store for more information about water leak detection systems. If you’d like more information about how you can prevent water losses in your home, please contact an expert, visit statefarm.com, or call or stop by my office. Lori Pearson, CLU, Agent

Improving the Appearance & Value of Your Home As the Summer approaches and the cold becomes a distant memory, I have begun spending more time outside. I have noticed that my homes curb appeal doesn’t have the same appeal as it did when the home was purchased new just 10 years ago. My paint has faded, I assume that has become more noticeable after seeing the neighbors freshly painted exterior. After contracting RCM Construction to do the work we didn’t know what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised as to how professional the crew presented themselves, how quickly they worked and how punctual they were. Painting is very tiring as we have painted our first home before ourselves. With our busy schedules we not only could not find the time; we couldn’t spare the time we did have. Having RCM do the work turned out to be one of the best Home Improvement decisions we have made since buying the home. How quickly has painting involved into more improvements such as having sprinklers, shutters, carpet, carports & patio covers installed. We aren’t planning to sell anytime soon but it is nice to have people who slow down and take a second look at our home as if wanting to buy or taking notes on possibly turning their home into an Oasis. We will soon add a new room and have begun having RCM look into doing this for us. Thanks Robert! Mr.& Mrs. Hawkins

Let’s Talk About Real Estate

Kalani Hooker

“DETERMINING WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD”

M

any articles are being written these days about the fact that home prices are moving out of the reach of potential home buyers. This dilemma is referred to as an affordability problem. Do you know what you can afford on today’s market? The price you can pay is a combination of three factors, a down payment, a mortgage loan, and closing costs. You probably know how much cash you can assemble for the down payment and closing costs, but you must also determine the amount of mortgage financing you can obtain. Don’t assume that you can’t afford the home of your choice. Talk to the experts. The first expert to consult is you local Realtor. He or She can give you an idea of the price you will have to pay for the type of home you want. After identifying the price, talk to a mortgage lender about your current financial situation and your ability to borrow the amount you’ll need. Here are some of the basic items a mortgage lender may require at the time you make a formal application for a mortgage loan: 1. A copy of your contract of sale or building agreement complete with legal description. 2. W-2 forms for the past two years and original pay stubs for the last thirty days showing year-to-date income or a letter from your employer confirming your earnings for the previous two years and this year to date. 3. If self-employed, business and personal Federal Tax Returns for the past two years plus a current balance sheet. 4. A 90 day history of savings, checking, and /or brokerage accounts. 5. A complete list of outstanding debts and account numbers. 6. Verification of twelve months of rental, mortgage, or land contract payments. ADVICE: Investigate your ability to buy real estate. Ask ME.

Stop Student Loan Garnishments

Dan J. Wallis, Attorney at Law Bailey & Galyen

Student loans are not dischargeable under bankruptcy unless the debtor can establish undue hardship. For a student loan to be dischargeable, you must establish that if you are forced to repay the student loan, you will be unable to maintain a minimal standard of living for yourself and your dependents, that your solvency will not be corrected for significant period of time and that you have made a good-faith effort to repay the student loan before the bankruptcy filing. Few debtors meet the high standards of undue hardship, but that does not mean the bankruptcy laws cannot be used to your benefit if you have student loans pending that prevent you from paying other debts. If you are in serious financial trouble, you might be able to file for bankruptcy. And seeking legal advice is essential when you need explanations of the complicated bankruptcy codes. Bankruptcy can accomplish the following regarding your student loan: •

Stop garnishments

Stop harassment

Buy time to increase your income for repaying the loan

Discharge other debts to free up income for repaying the loan

Both a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and a Chapter 13 bankruptcy can effectively stop student loan collection efforts. To determine which type of bankruptcy is best, you should discuss your situation with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer. Courtesy GETLEGAL.COM

READING

What caused America’s steep decline in literacy?

• One-to-one instruction

In 1930 America was the most literate nation on earth, then we abandoned phonics, the only method that can possibly work. Now millions of Americans can’t read, and almost no one knows how to teach phonics. But Academic Associates teachers use the most effective method ever devised. Our students typically gain two or more grades levels in reading in less than 60 hours. Call for our free brochure, or for an appointment to see how Academic Associates can help.
