7 Pointers to Help Save You Money On Air Conditioning This Summer
1. Check to make sure your home is well insulated. Pay special attention to the attic, window seals and doors.
2. Upgrade to a smart thermostat. You can regulate heating and cooling when you're not home to save money simply by adjusting the settings remotely using an app on your phone.
3. Close your blinds or even tint your windows if needed. Make sure your AC vents are clean, open and free of obstruction.
4. Turn your ceiling fans on. Just having your ceiling fans on helps your room feel an entire 10 degrees cooler.
5. Turn up the thermostat when you leave the house.
6. Make sure your thermostat is placed on the "right wall." Placing a thermostat in an area where direct sunlight hits or a wall near a window that warms up easily will cause your AC to run longer than necessary.
7. Check your AC filter monthly and replace it as needed.

USDA mortgage loans you ask? Yeah we know... it sounds a bit odd, and no you can't order one medium rare.
USDA loans are zero-down-payment mortgages for rural and suburban homebuyers.

- The USDA offers 100% financing and is available to millions of eligible primary home buyers with low to moderate incomes or scarce funds for down payments.

- Zero Down (NO down payment required!) on home loans in rural areas to help promote home ownership in these outlying areas.

- These loans are limited to "rural" areas, but you'd be surprised to find out that towns with less than 25,000 people are categorized as rural. Towns such as Alice, Agua Dulce, Banquete, Driscoll, Petronilla, Bishop, Sinton, Odem, Taft and more all qualify as rural communities.

Give us a call today to see if we can get you into the 100% financing program with the USDA. 361-853-9987

Happiness is an attitude :)

If you don’t intend to stay in your home long, need extra mobility or are unsure about your employment prospects, renting probably makes good sense for you. But if you're planning to stick around, owning may prove to be more rewarding. Here are five good reasons:

* Rates are near historic lows, and prices are still well below the past peaks. This unusual combination places the real cost of purchasing a home near a 50-year low.

* Buying builds equity. On most mortgage loans, you pay down the principal balance with each payment. This typically starts at about $100 per month for every $100,000 of loan balance and increases each month through the entire life of the loan. To make a fair comparison, be sure to subtract principal paid from a home loan payment vs. the cost of renting the same property.

* Home values rise over time. Increases are not guaranteed; however, if we use the last 50 years as a guide, values have typically risen at a pace above inflation.

* Homeownership often brings tax benefits. Deductions for home mortgage interest and real estate taxes save many homeowners thousands every year. Others still find taking the standard deduction more beneficial. Always consult your tax pro for advice.

* It’s more than just the money. Families become rooted in a neighborhood, school district and community. Homeowners have the freedom to choose paint colors and make modifications. Pets are welcomed. Intangibles like these often formulate the most valuable returns.

Housing is a precious commodity that we all need every day. It's your choice to rent or to own, yet buying a home for yourself usually beats buying one for your landlord.
