home insuranceWhat you must know about insurance when buying a home…

Purchasing a home involves getting to know a lot of financial terms and processes that most first-time home buyers have never been exposed to. One of the most confusing is insurance. If you’ve never owned a home before, your familiarity with insurance most likely centers around auto insurance, health insurance, life insurance and, perhaps, renter’s insurance.

Weekend DIY projects to improve your home value

The best home improvements are those that have a high return on the investment. Remodeling Magazine publishes an annual Cost vs. Value Report, analyzing the ROI of 35 separate remodeling projects. You can even look at the return based on your region.
The report is based on the assumption that you’re using professional labor to perform the remodel. You’ll get an even higher return on your dollar, when it’s time to sell your home, if you do the job yourself.
We’ve compiled our own list of DIY projects that buyers like, you’ll enjoy in the meantime, and you can accomplish in a weekend. To keep it simple, we focused on two areas of the home that are key when it comes time to sell: the entryway and kitchen.
