Upsizing! Finding the Home of Your Dreams!

by Melissa Thompson

We hear a lot about people downsizing and simplifying, but if you are looking for a larger home, now is a great time to sell your smaller home and move up to something that better suits your wants and needs.  Perhaps you have a growing family and need more space, or an additional income-earner has joined your household or maybe you have enough equity in your current home that you can now afford your dream home. Whatever the reason, movin’ on up is an exciting prospect!

Ok, now let’s contain that excitement a bit and think about what it means to purchase a more expensive house.  First, just because you can afford something on paper, doesn’t mean you should commit all your resources to the most expensive property on your radar.  It would behoove you to take a thorough look at your current budget and then play with the numbers a bit to determine how much more you’re willing to spend each month on a higher mortgage payment.  A dream house is wonderful, but being house-poor is not.  Think about your lifestyle and don’t make the mistake of getting into a financial bind that doesn’t allow you to do the activities you enjoy.

When financing your new home, you have a couple of options.  If you haven’t sold your current home yet, you can choose a Home Equity Loan or a Bridge Loan to make the down payment on the new home.  A home equity loan allows you to borrow against your current home’s equity and is usually less expensive than other loans.  A bridge loan is a short-term loan that is used until you can obtain permanent financing.  Because they are short term, the interest rates on them will be relatively high.

Before you put your house on the market and commit to purchasing a new one, educate yourself about the prices of houses in the areas where you will be selling and buying. Whether it’s a buyer’s market or a seller’s market, a professional Realtor will be able to assist you in navigating the process.  The goal is to sell high and buy low, and in today’s market that is an achievable dream!

Are you ready to move up into your dream home?  If so, contact Melissa Thompson at Your Key to Memphis or call her at 901-756-8900 and let her assist you in your home search today!

Pool Safety for Summer Fun!

by Melissa Thompson

With summer fast approaching, it’s important to make sure your backyard pool is a safe place for family fun.  Tragically, over 200 children drown in backyard pools each year, so make pool safety a priority by following these guidelines;

- Secure your pool with Appropriate Barriers.  Surround your pool completely with a four feet high fence or barrier that has a self-closing and self-latching gate. Place a safety cover on the pool or hot tub when it is not in use and remove any steps or ladders used for access.  Consider using a pool alarm that sounds if anyone enters the pool area.

- Always actively supervise children in and around the pool.  Stay within arm’s length of young children.  Make sure there is a designated person to watch the water when people are in the pool.  And never let anyone swim alone.  Young or inexperienced swimmers should use U.S. Coast Guard approved life jackets.

- Ensure that everyone in the home knows how to swim well by enrolling them in swimming lessons.

- Keep your pool/hot tub water clean and clear.  Maintain Proper Chemical Levels, filtration and circulation.  Regularly test and adjust chemical levels to minimize the risk of earaches, rashes and other, more serious diseases.

- Establish and enforce Swimming Pool Rules such as “no diving”, “stay away from drain covers”, “swim with a buddy” and “walk please.”

- Make sure that everyone in the home knows how to respond to aquatic emergencies by having appropriate safety equipment and taking water safety, first aid and CPR courses from The Red Cross.

Learn more about swimming pool safety by watching this Home Pool Safety video developed by The Red Cross and the National Swimming Pool Foundation.

If you are considering buying or selling a home this summer, call Melissa Thompson at 901-729-9526 and let her help you with all your real estate needs!
