Love Your Home Again

Love Your Home Again

You know how when you first move into a new space you love it so much, but then slowly resentment sets in? Like, at first that bit of peeling paint starts to chafe you, and before you know it you're looking to hammer in the 'For Sale As Is', sign on your lawn? Well it happened to me with my kitchen. I loved it so much; and now I hate it. Not being able to afford a complete renovation, I started with making two small changes. So incredible was the psychological transformation that I had the notion to tackle the entire house, room by room.

Here are 10 ways to come away from the edge, and fall back in love with your space.

Bank of England Mortgage Gives Back

BOE Buzzards Bay Leads by Example

A small civic organization decided three years ago that an inter-club Christmas Party was insufficient to meet the needs of local residents.

"We do several charitable drives year round as well as fundraisers and special events," said ,” said Lisa Simmons, Mortgage Banker at Bank of England Mortgage and President of the Bourne-Wareham Kiwanis Club. The special events and fundraisers have been my responsibility since our inception. We have founded 9 sub-groups for Children called Service Leadership Programs in the Bourne and Wareham School systems and I am the advisor to 3 of the groups.

We recently completed a very successful toy drive in our town. We divided the toys up 1/2 to each of the towns of Bourne and Wareham. We also work hard to raise money for the Jimmy Fund and volunteer to do many events for the Jimmy Fund and for Children's Hospital."

10 Factors in Your Home Appraisal

10 Factors in Your Home Appraisal

Paying someone several hundred dollars to tell you how much -- or how little -- your home is worth may not be the best part of selling a house, but having an appraiser review and record all of the upgrades and improvements you've made to your property can be rewarding. And when it comes time to sell, it would be great to set a price based on what you think your own home is worth, but the bank will likely want something more objective before it's ready to match that price with a mortgage for a homebuyer. And that's where the appraiser comes in. He acts as a kind of middleman who assesses homes by their condition and by how they compare to other similar homes in the area.

The price your appraiser sets can make or break the sale of your home, so it is an extremely important step in the home sale -- and buying -- process. Maybe you can't do anything about the Day-Glo green house next door or the plunging real estate market, but you can show off the love and care you've put into your home sweet home over the years. You might even want to consider making minor -- or even major -- changes to your home so you can get the most out of your appraisal, and ultimately, from a buyer.
