Home Buying Tips – Don’t Settle for Less

Home buying tips

When it comes to buying a home, there are some things you should never compromise on. In some cases you will need to compromise in order to complete the home purchase. However, when you’re pouring thousands of dollars into buying a home, you should be careful and consider your compromises before reacting impulsively. Therefore, I have a few things you never want to compromise on when it comes to buying your dream home.

Don’t compromise on these

Location and Commute – Some home buyers can deal with an hour or more commute just to be in a certain community. But if you are not the type who likes sitting in traffic for hours on end or riding on crowed busses, you should heavily consider buying a home near your place of work. Don’t compromise on your location if you know you will not be up for the commute later. Chances are, a long commute to work will not grow on you.

If work is not an issue, think about simple commutes to the store or other shopping and entertainment. Do you want to be within 15 minutes of all modern day conveniences or will you be okay with a 20+ minute drive?

Monthly Savings Budget – A monthly savings budget is very important to have when owning a home. If any repairs need to be done, it will be your responsibility and you will need the extra funds for it. In most cases, homeownership requires a new set of financial priorities. Therefore, you may not be able to do the things you once did if your house payment is more than what you were used to before.

Don’t compromise on your current lifestyle either. If you need to stay within a certain price range to maintain the lifestyle you are happy with right now, you should only look at homes in that price range. If you upgrade too much you can become unhappy that your money is going into your home instead of your savings.

Homeowners Insurance – While you don’t need to go overboard on home coverage, you do not need to under insure your home either. If you have a home valued at $300,000, you don’t need $800,000 in coverage unless you have really expensive things in your home like paintings worth thousands or jewelry worth thousands. Your goal with homeowners insurance is to have enough to cover the home and your possessions in case of a total loss.

When trying to decide how much coverage you need you should calculate your homes value along with your furniture, clothing, jewelry, and any other valuables that would cost a lot to replace. An umbrella policy is a great addition to your regular policy that will cover anything your original policy does not cover. And it’s inexpensive to add on.

When you are ready to sell, start with Erika Rogers – your real estate leader in St. George, UT and surrounding communities. She specializes in new construction, golf course communities, gated communities, 55+ adult communities, St. George luxury real estate, and foreclosures in all Southern Utah communities.

There will also be a children’s area which features crafts, face painting, the carousel, water feature & games.   The new St George Carousel will be operating this year also, which will add an element of fun to the event.

One of my favorite things about the St George Art Festival is, of course, the food vendors! There will be plenty of booths offering a variety of foods from Greek, Thai, barbecue, Indian tacos, ice cream, hot dogs, scones, crepes and funnel cakes to name a few.

Reasons to Fence Your Home Selling Worries

Home selling tips

There are some really good reasons to fence your home selling worries that you may not have considered yet.  While many real estate areas around the nation are seeing steady growth, others are experiencing a boom in real estate once again.  Therefore, if you have been on the fence about selling your home, here are some good reasons why you should.

Investment – During the downturn of the housing economy many homeowners saw their equity or investment values drop.  Now that the real estate industry is once again on the rise, many homeowners are seeing their equity and investment return. If you are one of the many potential sellers who didn’t sell because of equity concerns, worry no more. Now is a good time to consider selling while home prices are once again on the rise.

Downsizing – If your family has recently downsized due to children going off to college or you have just recently divorced, now is a good time to consider selling. If your space is too big for you now, downsizing has it perks too.  You’ll experience lower costs of living, less cleaning and less maintenance.  So, enhance your lifestyle while you can.

Upgrading – When your current home is too small for your growing family, your future needs a larger home. It’s now time to consider selling your smaller home so you can buy a lager home.  Or, maybe you changed jobs and would like to apply your new funds to a bigger place. No matter what the reason, spring is a great time to put your home on the market.

Interest Rates – Interest rates are going up, up, up. There are many potential buyers in the market right now due to this one factor.  Buying a home now can save thousands on interest rates. By selling now, you too can get in on buying a home with lower interest rates. Get your rates locked in now before they get too high.

Advice – A bit of advice for any home seller or buyer; don’t follow the trends if it’s not what you and your family need at the time.  Follow your own trends when it comes to lifestyle changes or what you need most for your particular situation.

When you are ready to sell, start with Erika Rogers – your real estate leader in St. George, UT and surrounding communities. She specializes in new construction, golf course communities, gated communities, 55+ adult communities, St. George luxury real estate, and foreclosures in all Southern Utah communities.

How to Avoid Common Kitchen Remodeling Mistakes

 Kitchen Remodel Tips

When it comes to kitchen remodeling, I have some tips about common mistakes and how you can avoid them. Dreaming of your perfect kitchen remodel usually includes a fantasy that everything will go without any problems. Deliveries will be made on time, installations will go smoothly, and cleanup will be easy. However, that is rarely the case. Therefore, these tips may be what you need to avoid those mistakes.

Kitchen Remodeling Tips:

Do it yourself – If you are planning on a complete remodel, you don’t want to take on a task this large. Kitchen remodels are commonly one of the most costly projects. They can also be very time consuming. Therefore, hiring a project manager or a general contractor will save you a big headache in the end.

Hiring a contractor – Hire a contractor that you are comfortable with and one that has references to back up his work. Always check the references no matter how highly he was recommended. And, don’t use a contractor just because they gave the lowest estimate. That’s not always a good thing.

Clear details – You need to be very specific with your details and make sure you are clear with the contractor about what you want and how you want it. Let them know exactly what type of cabinets, countertops, lighting, cabinet hardware, and fixtures you want.

Payments – Never pay for a total job upfront. You should only pay 30 percent of the job before it starts and then use a payment schedule. You will make more payments at pre-specified phases of the project and a final payment when everything is done to your standards. This insures the contractor will do everything your way.

Changing your mind – Changing your mind will lead to delays and more money. It also puts the contractor in a bind if they have another job scheduled to start soon after yours. Before you begin your project, make sure it’s exactly what you want.

How to Conserve Water and Save Money at Home

The evening news is full of stories about our drought-ridden country.  Since all we have to do is turn on the tap, wesometimes forget that even though the earth is covered with water, only a fraction of it is drinkable.

Water Conservation Ideas for Your St. George Home

Here’s a few tips for conserving water in your home:

  • Check for Leaks – Make sure all the pipes and faucets in your home are free from leaks.  A leaky pipe or faucet can waste gallons of water per day.  Check your water meter for leaks by writing down the number on the meter and not using water for at least two hours.  Then go back to your water meter and read it again.  If the readings are different, you have a leak.  Be sure you know how to shut off your outside water valve in case of a leak.
  • Install Water-Saving Devices – Toilets use about five to seven gallons per flush.  A water-saving toilet only uses about 1 1/2 gallons per flush.  Low-flow showerheads use less than 2 1/2 gallons of water per minute compared to 5 to 10 gallons when using a regular showerhead.
  • Insulate Your Water Pipes – Water will heat up quicker if your pipes are insulated.  This saves water down the drain while we wait for water to heat.  Likewise, insulating your pipes in the winter will help them from freezing and breaking.
  • Outside the Home – Placing mulch around your plans and trees helps water from evaporating quickly.  Rather than putting your sprinkler on a timer, water only when your lawn needs it.  Water in the morning when the weather is cooler to allow it to sink into the lawn.  Set up your gutter to collect water from your roof or use discarded water from inside your home (such as fish tank) and use it water your plants and garden.

There are just a few suggestions for conserving water in your home.  Not only will you be doing your part by you will save a lot of money on your water bill.
