Is this day important enough to you to try and improve, to try and be better at everything you set out to do? Will you be willing to stop complaining about unimportant things today that you have no control over? Will you stop being complacent and face up to the fact that you hate being average? Are you willing to try harder, work harder and make your day more significant?Are you willing to stand up and stand for something you believe in regardless of peer pressure or what others think of you?Are you willing to show your competition and your critics that you truly believe it when you say "There is nothing I can't do”,” There is nothing I can't do”,” There is nothing I can't do"?TODAY I CHOOSE TO CREATE MY OWN ECONOMY, I CHOOSE NOT TO BE A VICTIM OF OUR SOCIETY, I WILL BE SIGNIFICANT, AND...

After Forbearance - Now What In Connecticut?Covid-19 has impacted homeowners across the country. With job losses and income reductions, many have taken advantage of the ability to enter a forbearance program with their lenders. During the forbearance program, the agreements state that no late  fees will be assessed, and the balance of missed payments will be deferred to the end of the loan. As a result, many homeowners have been able to keep their homes during this time of economic upheaval. Some of these affected may now have stabilized and are ready to exit forbearance. They might be wondering if they will be penalized for this if they choose to refinance or buy a new home., Fortunately, there is good news for these homeowners. Part of the program is that the lender will not have that...

How Homeownership Can Help Shield You from Inflation In Connecticut If you’re following along with the news today, you’ve likely heard about rising inflation. You’re also likely feeling the impact in your day-to-day life as prices go up for gas, groceries, and more.

If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a home this year, you’re probably wondering if you should continue down that path or if it makes more sense to wait. While the answer depends on your situation, here’s how homeownership can help you combat the rising costs that come with inflation.

As you plan out your goals for the year, moving up to your dream home may top the list. But, how do you know when to make your move? You want to time it just right so you can get the most out of the sale of your current house. You also want to know you’re making a good investment when you buy your new home. What you may not realize is, that opportunity to get the best of both worlds is already here.You don’t want to wait until spring to spring into action. The current market conditions make this winter an ideal time to move. Here’s why.1. The Number of Homes on the Market Is Still LowToday’s limited supply of houses for sale is putting sellers in the driver’s seat. There are far more buyers in the market than there are homes available, and that means buyers are eagerly waiting for your ...

Buyers may find it tough to look for a home in the Lake Havasu real estate market today. The median sale price hit its highest point ever last month. Interest rates continue to march upward (with no sign of slowing down anytime soon). While local inventory levels rose slightly, they still remain incredibly low. All of this sounds like the seller should be sitting in the catbird seat, right? Woah! Cool your jets, people. There are a few words of wisdom you need to hear before your home hits the market.What Home Sellers REALLY Need to Know About Today's MarketRyan Lundquist, an appraiser out of the Bay Area in California, wrote a very honest blog post that I believe all sellers should read right now. And while he may live in California, his words prove just as true for the Havasu real est...

Understanding the process for purchasing a home is the best way to cut mistakes and make the best decision. The process takes a lot of time and much effort, but it’s worth the time and effort in the end and you stand a chance of avoiding huge financial mistakes.The first step in understanding the process is to determine how much you can afford. The general rule of thumb is that a home costs no more than 3 to 5 times your annual income providing you intend to make a 20 percent down payment and have little debt.After you’ve determined the amount you can realistically spend on a home, research the homes that interest you within the area you want to move. Magazines, newspapers and online sites contain real estate listings that will give you an idea of housing trends and prices.Make notes ab...

Gloucester Twp NJ Home Sellers        The One Thing Every Homeowner Needs To Know About a Recession A recession does not equal a housing crisis. That’s the one thing that every homeowner today needs to know. Everywhere you look, experts are warning we could be heading toward a recession, and if true, an economic slowdown doesn’t mean homes will lose value. The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) defines a recession this way: “A recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, normally visible in production, employment, and other indicators. A recession begins when the economy reaches a peak of economic activity and ends when the economy reaches its trough. Between trough and peak, the economy is in an expansion.” To help show that home prices do...
