Interest Rates

Back now with our special ‘The Year Ahead,’ in which we talk to the pros about what to expect for your real estate plans in 2018.

And we’re going to end this hour of the show by talking about what might happen with mortgage interest rates in the coming year. Now, of course, I don’t claim to know….in fact, nobody can say with authority exactly what’s going to happen with mortgage interest rates next year. But we can look at some scenarios – and what those scenarios might mean to you, if you plan to buy real estate or refinance in 2018.

Where will You Be in One Year?

We’re back with our special “The Year Ahead,’ all about what 2018 might mean to you, your home and all your real estate investments.

And we’re going to wrap up the show with our annual look at what the experts are saying about the new year, and try toanswer the big question: where will you be in one year?

First of all let’s look at the value of your home.

We have some good news for you there. Prices in most parts of America are expected to keep rising in 2018. The reason, is that there aren’t enough homes for sale, but there are still plenty of buyers out there. So the laws of supply and demand are in your favor, if you own a home, or plan on selling one.

Net-Zero

We’re back with our special “Your Green Home,” all about how to use as little energy as possible, and save as much money as possible, in your very own home.

You know plenty of us try to save money on utilities. We adjust the temperature a few degrees, we turn off lights when we’re not using them. And we might even adjust the thermostat on the hot water tank, to bring it down just a few degrees, and to bring down our Energy bill at the same time.

But even though all those efforts will save you money and will help the environment, there’s another approach to saving energy that thousands of homeowners are adopting.

The Home Energy Audit

We are back! With our special ‘Your Green Home!’ All about your home – the energy it uses and the money you pay – for all that power.

Whether you live in a cold climate and have to crank up the heat, or live in a sunny place where you use your air conditioner most of the year, you probably know – to the penny – just how much you pay every month for utility bills. Well, let’s talk now about doing more than turning off your lights when they’re not being used, and more than knocking the furnace down a couple of degrees. Let’s talk about making a BIG impact on your bills – now – and for years to come.

And we’re talking about the Home Energy Audit.

Vacant vs Income

Back again, with our special show “Snowbirds….” all about heading South for the winter, and leaving the cold, the ice and the snow – far behind.

But we wanted to wrap up this hour of the show with a question.

When you pack up all your things, and make that long drive South…..and you stay there anywhere from three to six months….what happens to the house – you just left?

And most important – can that house generate any income for you….while you’re not in it?

Where to Go?

We are wrapping up our special show – “Snowbirds.” All about the annual migration that Americans take – from the snowy North – to the Sunny South – every winter.

Now when it comes to great places to retire, there’s certainly no problem finding one, in every part of America. Our friends over at the AARP have a great list, that includes places like Asheville, NC…and Grand Junction Colorado… Amazing places to retire. But….Asheville gets over a foot of snow every year… and Grand junction gets around 19 inches!
