6 New Year’s resolutions for homeowners
We create resolutions for ourselves, why not create them for your home?
Make extra mortgage payments
Making extra mortgage payments will shorten the amount of time it takes to pay off your house.
Pay off second mortgage
Make a goal to pay off a second mortgage to help gain financial freedom from added debt .
Refinance your mortgage to decrease your payment or to go from a variable to a fixed rate.
Fight your property tax assessment
If you house has declined in value in recent years then you might be able to contest your property tax assessment.
Score homeowners insurance discounts
Major repairs or improvements made in the last year can get you a discount or a reduced insurance payment.
Make your mortgage payments on time
Paying bills on time increases your credit score. A high credit score can get you better interest rates.
