Who saves more money, mom and dad or the kids?

Yesterday we talked about working with The Bank and how difficult it can be.  There are two huge things to remember today:

  1. First – twenty percent down.  Ugh!
  2. Second – PMI, insurance to help the bank.  Ugh!

The key to success is easy!  Oh come on………, all you need is an abundance of hard earned cash.  How difficult can that be?  The closer we look the harder it is to actually come up with that money! 

There are numerous ways to acquire cash:

Mom and Dad along with the kids work with the banks

Yesterday we talked about how Mom and Dad are bidding against a shrinking supply of homes near urban areas.  Everyone wants to move to be closer to amenities, that puts Mom and Dad in a precarious position, no one wants to buy their home in the Burbs so they can buy a new home.  The Kids are fighting for their first home in a really tight market and competing against Mom and Dad.

Some random thoughts about selling your home.

We have commented several times that today’s home buyers are very savvy and quite demanding.  We have offered several tips that can help you entice a buyer to put in an offer on your home.  Today let’s look at a few things that you really do want to make sure ARE NOT included within your home. 

Did your house sell yesterday? More ideas for you

Yesterday we talked about cleaning up the house and removing most of those things you love but new buyers don’t.  It can be a difficult and almost painful process but if you want to sell and move on it is necessary and all falls under the most basic of Real Estate prep work.  It isn’t fun but the end result will work for you.

Selling your home? Thinking of downsizing?

One of the largest group of home buyers today are Mom and Dad minus the kids.  Mom and Dad now live in a big home and they are thinking of selling so that they can move on to a new home that’s easily managed now that the family is much smaller.  How about grandkids coming to visit occasionally as compared to a house full of kids growing up?  Things have a habit of changing.

Renewable Energy includes Solar Power.

Probably the most widely known and understood form of Renewable Energy is Solar Power.  All of us have seen what looks like an explosion of Solar Farms all across Vermont.

In addition to the huge Solar Farms are private residential solar panels being installed either on the roof of homes or in the back yard.
