Buyers Beware: 3 Points to Ponder About a Home's Location
 
When buyers are on the hunt for a new home, they're usually very focused on one thing: the house. Buyers can lose objectivity if they fall in love with one, and the thought process becomes akin to one of those romantic photos with fuzzy edges—the only thing in focus is the house.
What those fuzzy edges obscure, however, is just as important as what's in focus. So, be sure to identify the impractical features of a home you love—not only for your own comfort and enjoyment, but for the home's … (0 comments)

Perhaps it's a little too easy to overlook the importance of water. It's simple, after all, to turn the tap and watch it flow. Consider, though, that only 1 percent of the Earth's water is useable. The rest is either salty or frozen. Not to mention the amount of energy used in acquiring, treating and transporting fresh water to consumers.
 
Saving water in and around your house battles high water bills while helping to save energy and conserve a precious resource.

You could probably tell your children they are moving to Disneyland and, after the initial ecstasy wore off, they'd still feel torn.

fort myers condos: Baby Boomers: Owning vs. Renting a Home. - 09/29/14 10:05 PM
 
Right Choice Realty

 
There was a time when nobody had doubts about the value of owning a home. It was considered an incredible long-term investment and ideal for retirement. Today we know that real estate isn't as safe as we once thought it was, at least as a short-term investment, and Americans, young and old, are leery of sinking their life savings into a home as an investment. Knowing this, will owning a home help you retire? That depends on a number of factors, including when you purchase the home.

fort myers condos: Confused About VA Loans? Find Out What Veterans Should Know - 04/07/14 03:08 AM
Fans of late-night TV will recall the infomercials of a few years ago, hawking zero-down loans. Those loans, along with loans requiring no documentation, were being handed out like candy to anyone who applied, and were largely blamed for the mortgage industry implosion.
In the wake of that mess, mortgage lenders tightened standards. Lenders began demanding that homebuyers needed some skin in the game - a healthy down payment - to make them think twice about defaulting on the loan.
Zero-down loans became a memory.
Today, you have three choices if you're seeking a mortgage without a down payment: Navy Federal … (0 comments)

fort myers condos: Budgeting to Buy a Home? - 02/27/14 01:13 AM
Budgeting to Buy a House
No matter how good the credit rating, today's homebuyer no longer has the luxury of buying with little or zero down. Unless you are low-income with good credit, or a veteran, no-down loans are also a thing of the past.
Most lenders today want at least 20 percent of the loan amount as a down payment on a house. For a home priced between $168,300 and $287,500, a homebuyer would need to come up with between $33,660 and $57,500 just for a down payment. Then, there are closing costs to consider. These vary by state, but figure … (0 comments)

Buyer's Perspective: Short Sales vs. Foreclosures
They are known as "distressed properties," when in reality they are properties that belong to distressed homeowners. Foreclosed properties and those being sold short are homes that the homeowner can no longer afford, for any number of reasons.
If you have your heart set on purchasing from among an area's distressed properties, you may have to look a bit harder for them than you would have last year. The number of foreclosures on the market dwindled 22 percent in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2012, according to RealtyTrac. The number of … (5 comments)

fort myers condos: DIY Flooring Installation - 11/25/13 02:35 AM
Installing a new floor is a great way to liven up your house. Before you change your floor, however, you need to decide what type of flooring is best suited to your budget and lifestyle. Hardwood floors are a classic choice, while many homeowners prefer the ease of tile or the affordability of laminate flooring.

Furnish Your Home For Less
Starting out with a "blank slate" can be both a blessing and a curse. The blessing comes if you have enough money to furnish your home with whatever you want from wherever you choose. Furnishing a home on a shoestring, though, takes creativity, an eye for a good value, and possibly some elbow grease.
While some discount stores, such as Ikea, sell inexpensive new furnishings, careful shoppers can find better quality for less money with used furnishings. Here are a few ideas for getting what you need at dramatically discounted prices.

fort myers condos: When selling a home, first impressions are everything. - 05/01/13 11:25 PM
Entries That Welcome These days, many homeowners in the United States use their garage as their everyday entry to their home. They rarely enter their home the way their guest will, through the front door.
Have you ever been invited to someone's home and discovered when you got there that you aren't sure where you were supposed to enter? Or perhaps the front entry is so dark and overgrown that it feels scary and unwelcoming? One of the most important indoor/outdoor transitions at your home is the sequence people experience from the instant they arrive at the curb to the moment they … (2 comments)
