Maya Swamy's curator insight, July 6, 2013 5:01 PM

There is a word in evaluating a home called 'obsolence' - it simply means out of date.  Any obsolence reduces the value of your home. An example would be perfectly working harvest gold appliances reducing the value of your home.  Steadily updating your home with smaller expenses will maintain and increase the value. When the time comes to sell you will be able to do so at a higher value and less expense.

How To Choose A Home Based On Your Credit Score

How To Choose A Home Based On Your Credit Score | Real Estate and Building Real Estate Relationships | Scoop.it
Your credit score goes a long way toward determining what type of mortgage that you can expect to get. In general, those with good credit scores are going to get fixed rate loans with interest rates at the lower end of the rate spectrum.

Maya Swamy's curator insight, June 29, 2013 9:18 PM

Your credit score is the critical factor in determining what rates and what kind of mortgage you can get.  If you are planning to buy a home in the next couple of years now is the time to work on your credit. Key for the near future is to make all payments on time. Do not buy a fancy car.  And do not incur new debts.  Every dollar you pay on that fancy car is a dollar less you can pay on your mortgage. Every estra dollar you borrow is taken as a sign that are unable to pay current bills.
