#TaraMTG Tuesday: 7 Ways Mortgage Professionals Can Help You!

DHREA 31/07/2018

(Every Tuesday we feature a blog from one of our fantastic affiliates, Tara Mortgage Services!)

 

When you think of the kind of help a mortgage professional offers most likely you think home loan services. But did you know that we can do more?

It’s true! Our office does more than match you with the right loan at a competitive rate. We help you navigate every aspect of homeownership success.

Have questions? Give us a call or contact us through our online form located at the top and bottom of our website.

Trustworthy Credit Advice

Credit scores are a critical part of the mortgage process, so our expertise in credit scores comes with the territory. Because your credit score is essential to the mortgage rate, you want to make sure you have the facts about your credit score and how you can improve it.

So when you’re looking for honest answers about your FICO score, remember Tara Mortgage Services can help!

Explain the Homebuying Process

Curious about what it takes to buy a home but not quite ready to move toward applying for a loan?

Maybe you’re wondering:

  • Which loan option is best
  • About hiring a real estate agent
  • What fees to expect
  • How much home you can afford to buy

Offer Down Payment Tips

Many think that you need a 20% down payment for a home, but that’s not true! There are many loan options where you need as little as 3.5% down!

Need help coming up with down payment that won’t drain your savings? We’ll coach you on creative ways to come up with it. From monetary gifts to home buying assistance programs, we know all the tricks to buy a home with limited funds to start.

Do a Financial Checkup

Similar to your annual health checkup, your finances need a checkup too! We’ll take a look at your assets, income, and other financial obligations so that you can have a better understanding of your financial situation.

Just as a doctor gives you tips on how to improve your health, we’ll make some recommendations, like refinancing to a better term, to improve your financial health.

Explore Investment Property Options

Considering buying an investment property? We’ll clarify your loan options, and offer advice, so you decide if it’s a smart financial move.

Avoid Foreclosure

Foreclosure doesn’t have to happen to you. We can help you explore different options before it gets to the point where you can no longer afford your mortgage payments. If you think you might be at risk for missing mortgage payments, please contact us right away.

Look Out for Your Home Buying Interests

As mortgage professionals, we’re passionate about being a valuable home loan consultant in every way. From helping you decide whether you should refinance out of an FHA loan, or how to recognize housing scams, our duty is to serve you.

Mortgage Professionals at Your Service

Whether you’re a first time home buyer, an existing homeowner, a budding property investor with questions, or just looking for a financial checkup, we’re here to offer honest guidance and advice. Contact Tara Mortgage Services today for personalized assistance from an experienced mortgage professional.

DHRE Home Blog: The Benefits of Using Essential Oils

DHREA 30/07/2018

essential oils

 

Essential oils are a product made by the distillation of natural material, usually by water or steam. The resulting all natural oils are highly aromatic, and can be used for a number of holistic reasons from health and skin care to aromatherapy. Essential oils can also be used for healthy home do it yourself projects. These projects can range from simply getting your home to smell nice, all the way to pest control.

Here are a few do it yourself healthy home tips and tricks you can do with Essential Oils.

AIR FILTERS

While doing your monthly air filter replacement in your home, put a few drops of your favorite essential oil on the air filter before you install it. Put a drop in each corner, as well as a couple in the center of the filter. This will keep your home smelling great for a month when you change your air filters again.

FRESHEN WHILE YOU VACUUM 

Depending on the type of vacuum you have this can be done two ways. The first way is if your vacuum uses the disposable paper bags. If so just add a few drops to the bag before you install it. If you have a reusable bag or a bagless vacuum simply put the drops on a cotton ball and place the cotton ball inside the bag or canister. Then every time you vacuum you will leave behind a fresh scent.

LINEN SPRAY

Get a spray bottle and fill it with 1.5 cups of water. Then add 3 ounces of vodka and about 30-35 drops of your favorite scented essential oil. Lavender is a popular choice for this spray. Shake the bottle up to mix the ingredients and spray your linens to give them a pleasant aroma.

GET RID OF SHOE ODOR

This is possibly the easiest trick you can do. Put a few drops of some great smelling essential oils on cotton balls and leave them in your shoes overnight. The next morning your shoes should be smelling good as new. Just make sure to put your shoes out of the reach of any pets you have when you do this.

KEEP YOUR BBQ BUG FREE

No one enjoys a BBQ with a bunch of mosquitoes and flies buzzing around. To keep these annoying bugs at bay drip a few drops of citronella oil on the coals of your BBQ and on any candles you have out.

AMAZING SMELLING LAUNDRY

To get your laundry smelling fantastic put a couple drops of an essential oil like lavender or your own favorite blend on a dryer sheet. Put the dryer sheet in with your laundry and turn the dryer on. Your laundry should come out smelling even better then usual.

HOMEMADE AIR FRESHENER

Rather than using those store bought aerosol sprays that are full of dangerous chemicals you can make your own air freshening spray with essential oils. Get a spray bottle and fill it up with no more than a cup of distilled water. Then choose three of your favorite essential oils that go well together. Put eight drops of each oil in the spray bottle. Shake well. Now you have a healthy, homemade air freshening spray.

HOMEMADE PEST REPELLENT

If you have pests like mice, spiders and ants in your home this is an easy trick to get rid of them. Put a few drops of peppermint oil on a cotton ball. Then, put the cotton balls in the problem areas of your home. Most of these pests detest the smell of peppermint so this should drive them out of your home.

EASY SIMMER POTS

Want to freshen up your entire house quick and easy? Fill a pan with water and bring it to a boil. Once it begins to boil set it to simmer and add drops of your favorite smelling essential oil. This will have your home smelling great in no time. Just remember to keep putting water and drops in the pan as they evaporate into the air.
