Spring Cleaning, Areas That Deserve Your Attention!

Spring Cleaning, Areas That Deserve Your Attention!

Are you feeling the urge to tackle home maintenance this season? While you’re probably up on the basics of spring-cleaning, like washing windows, cleaning blinds and shampooing rugs, there are several areas you may overlook.

Smoke Alarms

• Rather than wait for the telltale chirp signifying low power, use daylight saving time or a holiday like Memorial Day as a reminder to replace the batteries in all of your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

Medicine Cabinets

• If vitamins, prescriptions and other medication are unused or expired, safely purge them. Not everything should go in the trash, though. Determine if you can flush what you have or if you need to find a location that will dispose of it for you.

Pantry

• Stale spices and expired canned goods are candidates for the waste bin. Take this opportunity to areaswipe down shelves, reorganize the contents and make a list of needed supplies.

Appliances

• Have you thought about cleaning the machines that do the cleaning for you? This simple task can help your washing machine, dishwasher and other gadgets run more efficiently.

Ceiling Fans

• When was the last time you removed the dust that’s accumulated on the ceiling fans? If it’s been a while, now’s the time to tackle it. Simplify the process and trap the dust by slipping a damp pillowcase over each blade and slowly pulling it back. There’s no point in cleaning if you’re using dirty tools for the job. Be sure to replace sponges regularly and run cleaning cloths through a hot-water cycle in the washer. And don’t forget the broom, which deserves a shake, vacuum and hose down to keep it clean and useful.

Are You Down Payment Literate?

Are You Down Payment Literate?

One of the biggest financial decisions you’ll make in your life is buying a home. It’s a top goal for the majority of millennials. More than nine of out 10 renters ages 25 to 34 aspire to own a house, according to Fannie Mae’s National Housing Survey. But, renters said they view saving for a down payment as the top barrier to home ownership.

However, the larger problem may be that many aspirational homebuyers are actually down payment illiterate. What do we mean by that? It means you aren’t sure of the down payment requirement or options when buying a home. For example, do you think 20 percent down is required? You’re not alone—39 percent of non-homeowners think they need more than 20 percent down for a home purchase.

One home buyer recently told us that he planned to cash out his 401k to come up with his down payment. Both are misunderstandings about down payments and could set you back from your longer term goals.

Home buyer education is another critical step. Most education is required if you use a down payment program. But, it’s a resource that can benefit all types of buyers. In a recent Down Payment Resource survey of future home buyers, 72 percent of the respondents said they plan to complete an online or in-person home buyer education course.

You’ll walk away understanding the complete home buying process, how to budget and common pitfalls to avoid. Today, you’ll find both in person (classroom setting) or online options to choose from.

Know Your Options.

paymentTo be down payment literate, means you know you have options. What down payment is best for you depends on many factors. While 20 percent down isn’t required, it could be the better option for you, or maybe not. If takes you 5 more years to save for the 20 percent down, all while your rent increases, then it may be advantageous to buy sooner and use a low down payment loan. Plus, you may qualify for a program that can help with your down payment and/or closing costs. In our survey of future and recent buyers, more than 90 percent said they wanted information on programs from their agent or lender.

Most home buyers don’t know there are more than 2,400 different programs available across the country. A national survey by NeighborWorks America found that 71 percent of Americans are not aware of or unsure about the down payment assistance open to middle class home buyers. Home buyer programs can be used with both low down payment and conventional loans.

Before you cash out your 401k or other retirement investments for a down payment, put on the breaks and consult with your lender, financial adviser or nonprofit that offers loan counseling. There are often more options for your down payment that won’t deplete your retirement savings.

While your home purchase can also be a long-term wealth builder, it’s first and foremost your home and your community. It’s important to diversity your investments. So, keep your 401k and let it continue to grow. Find out if you may qualify for a home buyer program that could help fund your down payment.  There are also tax credit programs that can help you save over the life of the loan.

Financial Literacy Resources To Help.

Your student loans and degree may still not have have prepared you for managing your finances. The good news is there are many resources to help solve that problem.

Here are few to try during Financial Literacy Month:

  •  Neighborworks America, a network of community development and housing counseling counselors. Find one in your area.
  • eHomeAmerica, provides online certified home buyer education and counseling for home buyers and homeowners
  • Down Payment Resource, searchable database of 2,400 programs that can help home buyers save on down payment and closing costs.
  • MyMoney.Gov, provided by the Federal Financial Literacy and Education Commission of more than 20 Federal entities that are coordinating and collaborating to strengthen financial capability and increase access to financial services for all Americans.
  • AnnualCreditReport.com, provides a free credit Report to decipher where you stand, initially, with your credit profile position before preceding to the Bank for pre -approval on a loan.
  • CreditSmart, Freddie Mac’s signature programs of 12 modules and a curriculum designed to help consumers understand, build and maintain better credit.
  • HOME, Fannie Mae’s app for home buyers, provides step-by-step information on the home buying process.
  • Think Glink, articles, tips and resources on a wide range of personal finance, home buying and consumer topics.
  • NerdWallet, consumer content on banking, investments, mortgages and more designed to provide clarity for all of life’s financial decisions.

Big Issues For Today’s Buyers

Big Issues For Today’s Buyers.

We know the big issues for today’s buyers: lack of starter home inventory, rising interest rates, student loan debt and the hurdle of saving for a down payment. According to the Housing Aspiration Report saving for a down payment was a barrier for 70 percent of renters, topping other hurdles such as job security and qualifying for a mortgage. In a new Down Payment Resource survey of future home buyers, 85 percent said they were looking to buy a home in the next six months, but 63 percent did not have money saved for a down payment…
