What goes around comes around. There is nothing new under the sun. Been there, done that. Yada, yada, yada. Housing trends (like most trends) tend to wax and wane over the years, but they often retain something from previous generations. It’s like . . . deja vu all over again. Which is exactly wh...

Last week we dabbled in curlicues, asymmetrical porches, and textured shingles. In short, we traveled back in time to the Victorian era of homes in our study of the evolution of style.

As we begin a new year, it’s time to take a look at taxes—particularly the impact on homeowners. You’ve probably heard the old adage: In order to make money, you have to spend money. Looking at it from a homeowner’s perspective, we’ll tweak it a bit: If you’re planning on spending money on a hous...

As we learned in my previous post,  “Understanding Your Credit Score,“ your credit score reflects how well you borrow and pay back money. It’s essentially  your debt reputation in the world of finance. Friends, family, neighbors, co-workers couldn’t care less about the nitty gritty details of you...

When it comes to this topic, the volume of industry lingo abounds.  For example, you’ve probably heard terms bandied about such as: credit history, credit report, credit score, credit rating, FICO score.
