How To Avoid Identity Theft When Moving

identity theftWith all the news concerning retailers databases being compromised and resulting in consumer identity theft, you need to be acutely aware of the increase of identity theft during a move and take precautions to prevent your becoming a victim of enterprising criminals. Moving often makes it easier for identity theft to occur: we leave information behind that others can use---mail that is not rerouted to our new address, important papers that aren't shredded but left in the trash, or through hiring rogue movers. The following steps are essential to ensure your protection:
  • If you are using a moving company, be sure that you know it is a trusted and reliable firm.  Sometimes simply getting recommendations from friends, family members, and real estate agents is not enough.
  • Make a change of address checklist.  Before you move, make sure you take the time to list all companies, institutions, and subscriptions that you receive through the postal system. Click here for a list of those you should include.  Personally notify all financial institutions of your plans to leave your home.  One of the easiest ways that someone can obtain your personal identity is through mail theft.
  • Submit a change of address form to the U.S. Post Office.  Once your form has been filed, double-check the confirmation from the Postal Service to make sure that they list your new address correctly. Your mail should start being delivered to your new residence within seven to 10 business days after you submit a change-of-address filing.  Ask a current neighbor to take in any mail that comes to your old address after you move.
  • Although moving is a good time to discard unwanted personal files, records, and documents, don’t just throw them away; shred them!
  • Make sure your technological “toys”---computers, cell phones, tablets, and the like—are secured by passwords and packed in unmarked boxes.  Better yet, take the computers, hard drives, and other external storage devices with you when you travel to your new home.
  • Say in your current home as much as you can while movers are there.
All this before you actually move into your new home.  After?  Part 2 is coming.

Foolproof Tactics For An Easy Summer Move

summer moveEach year around 65% of all household moves take place between May and September, so obviously you need to plan ahead if you’re moving to a new home this summer.

While the act of relocating to a new place can certainly be exciting, there are, of course, challenges to be met, especially during a hot, busy summer season. Although there are no foolproof ways to make the experience totally stress-free, there are, thankfully, actions you can take to make your “adventure” a more positive one. Sage advice to heed includes:
  • Plan ahead! Contact moving companies or truck rental firms at least six weeks in advance if possible. Try to schedule your move for a weekday and at a time when traffic is less heavy. Make prior arrangements for the care of young children and pets on moving day—for their sake and yours! Line up commitments from friends and family if you’ll need their assistance for the move.
  • Be strategic about packing. Gather necessary supplies and start packing early. Whether it’s one room, one cabinet, or a drawer at a time, weed through what may be years of accumulation. Decide what to donate to charity, give to a friend, recycle, trash, pack now, or keep handy until moving day. Label boxes as to contents and intended room in the new home.
  • Take care of logistics in advance. Ideally, you should contact your future utilities provider at least two weeks before you move regarding turning on your electricity, gas, phone, cable, and internet before your arrival, if possible. Contact any new school for a list of documents needed for registration. Do not pack these materials away it’s better to hand carry them for easy retrieval. If you’re going to need to spend a night in a hotel, make those arrangements early.
  • Make life simple. Keep all small parts labeled, in plastic bags, and all together in one box. Likewise, take pictures of electronic hook-ups for future use.
  • Consider the heat. Dress appropriately, stay hydrated, and refrain from placing certain items in a hot truck—candles or wine, e.g. Click here for tips on packing cleaning products and toxins.
  • Stay calm. Relax, whistle, smile, and anticipate the pleasure of living in your new home.

Orlando FL Real Estate Market Trends for June 2014

If you sold your primary residence and made a profit, you may be able to exclude that profit from your taxable income. Here's how it works.

Individuals can exclude up to $250,000 in profit from the sale of a main home (or $500,000 for a married couple) as long as you have owned the home and lived in the home for a minimum of two years. Those two years do not need to be consecutive. In the 5 years prior to the sale of the house, you need to have lived in the house for at least 24 months in that 5-year period. In other words, the home must have been your principal residence.

Just like calculating capital gains, the formula for calculating the gain or loss involves subtracting your cost basis from your selling price.

The formula for calculating your cost basis on your main home is as follows:

Purchase price
     + Purchase costs (title & escrow fees, real estate agent commissions, etc.)
     + Improvements (replacing the roof, new furnace, etc.)
     + Selling costs (title & escrow fees, real estate agent commissions, etc.)
     - Accumulated depreciation (for example, if you ever took the office in the home deduction)
     = Cost Basis

 And then calculating your profit or loss would be:

Selling price
     - Cost Basis
     = Gain or Loss

Take a look at how many homes sold in our local Orlando real estate market for June 2014.

Orange County Real Estate Sales Statistics - June 2014

Orange County saw 14 fewer homes sold in June 2014 than June 2013, less than a 1 percent decrease. The average sales price increased by 1.1 percent and the median sales price increased by 1.1 percent from June 2013.  Market times decreased by 7 days or 1.3 percent.

Things To Do Orlando: 5th Annual Lake Conway Wipeout

lake conway wipeout
 
Lake Conway Wipeout was started in 2010 by a few friends who enjoy water, boats, and laughter. After watching ABC-TV's hit show Wipeout one night, a Facebook conversation turned into brainstorming our own version of Wipeout. 2014 marks the event’s fifth year, and it has grown from a few boating friends to over 300 boats and over 1,000 spectators.

The 5th annual Lake Conway Wipeout will take place Saturday, July 26th, 2014, from noon until 5:00pm at the sandbar on Lake Conway in Orlando. The event is only accessible by boat, but Lake Conway does have public boat ramps.

Our crews will set up an inflatable obstacle course at Lake Conway’s sandbar and participants run the course to see who gets the best time. It is a great family event and kids-only run the course the first two hours of the event. Come out and laugh at your friends and family bouncing off an inflatable obstacle course on the water. We have great prizes for the winners too!

* Registration for children 8-15 starts at 10:30am until spots are filled. Everyone under 18 needs to have a legal parent or guardian present to sign their waiver form or check in. Also, must walk along the outside of the course with that child!!!!

* Registration for adults 16-up starts at 12:30pm until spots are filled. Again, anyone under 18 needs a legal parent or guardian present to sign the waiver or check in even though you are in the adult category.

* Children 8-15 will run the course from 12pm to 2pm, adults 16-up will run the course from 2:30pm to 4:30pm.

* Award Ceremony is at 4:45pm The public ramp for Lake Conway is located on Hoffner Ave just east of Orange Ave.

The sand bar is at the East side of Big Lake Conway. Check the Facebook page for updates and maps for the ramp and sandbar locations. The event is free, but we ask you to donate via the following link the proceeds go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help wipeout blood cancers.

*Important Notice: This event is only accessible by boat. All of the shoreline near the event is private property. Anyone trespassing will be prosecuted. The shoreline and streets around the event will be monitored by local authorities, and any cars parked illegally will be towed.

4 First-Time Homebuyer Mistakes To Avoid

First-time homebuyers owe it to themselves to do a lot of research about the finances of buying a home. Here are four first-time homebuyer mistakes to avoid.
homebuyer1. Spending the maximum amount on a mortgage a lender will loan.
Lenders often qualify buyers based on incomes and debt-to-income ratios without considering how much the borrowers spend on other budget items.
Financial experts recommend that consumers decide how much they want to spend each month on housing before meeting with a lender. It’s up to you to know your budget and to not just jump at a mortgage amount that a lender says you can afford.
2. Not getting pre-qualified.
This should be the first step toward homeownership. Many first-time homebuyers wait until they are ready to start house hunting before contacting a lender.
Buyers need to get pre-qualified early enough in the process so that they can make changes if they need to or correct errors on their credit report. Some first-time buyers may need to spend up to a year saving more money, increasing their incomes or cleaning up their credit before making an offer on a home.
3. Underestimating the importance your credit score.
While most consumers know it's important to have a high credit score, not everyone understands how costly a low score can be. Mortgage lending is done with a tier of interest rates and terms based on consumer credit scores. Learn about credit scores the minute you start working. Many websites provide information about how to improve your credit score.
And remember, even after a mortgage approval, you must avoid applying for new credit or taking on new debt, because a second credit check is now often required before settlement.
4. Choosing the wrong mortgage product
Many first-time homebuyers opt for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage only because it is an industry standard. Alternatives to a 30-year-fixed sometimes make more sense. For example, buyers certain they will be relocated by their companies within five years may find a 5/1 ARM could be a much better mortgage.
Homebuyers eager to build equity in their homes or who are older and want to live mortgage-free in retirement should consider a 15-year fixed-rate loan or even a 10-year mortgage to reach their goals.
Do your homework and don’t jump at a mortgage because it will buy you a bigger Orlando Florida home.

Is Downsizing Right For You?

downsizingIf you are like an increasing number of home owners, you may well have recently thought about leaving your spacious house for a smaller residence.  Reasons for wanting to do so are numerous and varied and range from an empty nest, to burdensome maintenance chores, to financial considerations, to a desire for a change in lifestyle.
Whatever your motivation, be forewarned that downsizing is a serious move and may not be as simple as it sounds—and it may not be the right move for you at this time.  So, before you sell your existing Orlando FL home or purge your possessions, give serious thought to the following information:
BASIC PROS:
  • Less time and effort expended on maintenance tasks
  • Lower mortgage payments, utility bills, and property taxes.
  • Opportunity to shed years of accumulated “treasures.”
  • Layout better meet physical abilities
  • Possibility of a better location—closer to family, friends, and amenities
  • Extra time and money to allow a change in lifestyle.
BASIC CONS:
  • Less space for guests—and storage.
  • Reluctance to part with cherished belongings
  • Strong emotional ties to your current home and neighborhood
  • Unexpected costs of HOA fees and assessments, higher utility and tax rates in new location, moving expenses.
  • Need to successfully sell your present home
  • Less space for personal privacy
  • Possible need for new furniture or car to fit the dimensions of your new residence
  • Less room to entertain
Questions to ask—and answer honestly:
  • Why do I want to downsize?  What are my wants and needs at this stage of my life?
  • Where do I most want to live?  In what kind of residence?
  • How important is size to me?  Can I deal with less storage space, closer living quarters—and the resultant lack of private space?  Will I miss living in a large, prestigious house?
  • What can I part with—home itself, furnishings, possessions, friends, convenience of location?
  • What will the move cost?
  • How will my monthly/yearly bills be affected?
  • How will such a move affect my desired lifestyle?
  • How will downsizing affect my ability to entertain and be socially active?
  • How much can I reasonably expect to net from the sale of my current home?
  • Have I sought out advice from a Realtor, an accountant, friends who have downsized?
  • Have I thoroughly researched HOA fees and restrictions, transportation costs, distances, medical facilities, the community, and desired amenities?

Homeowners Summer Maintenance Checklist

summer maintenanceWith the summer season upon us, we need to tend to a few maintenance tasks before we can settle down in a hammock without a care in the world.  Keeping in mind the adage, “A stitch in time…”, we need to test the garage door opener in our Orlando FL home, check the air conditioning system, and service the lawn mower to ensure a breakdown-free summer.
  • When was the last time you thought about your garage door or its automatic opener?  Like any mechanical system, the door and opener need some periodic, preventative maintenance. If you live in an area of frequent thunderstorms, a tight, well maintained garage door can also help prevent expensive results of a storm-ruptured door. The Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association International has a good guide to help you inspect and test your complete garage door system. It's a good idea to make monthly inspection and testing a part of your regular routine.
  • Sweltering temperatures may be just around the corner, and your best defense is a central air-conditioning system. If you have one at your Orlando FL home, there are a few things you can do to make sure that it's tuned up and ready to go when the summer heat arrives.  Before you start tinkering with the system, however, it's important to have a basic understanding of: the condenser, the blower unit, and the ductwork of your system.   Visit the DASMA website for a complete explanation and instructions on how to fine tune it.
  • Many small tasks are involved with getting your lawn mower ready for reliable summer use.
Check, belts, blades, all bolts and fasteners, tires, and wheels. If you have fuel older than 30 days stored in containers, not use it.  Any idea when you last changed the oil?  Drain it and replace it with oil the manufacturer recommends. Consider, too, replacing the sparkplug—if you do, add a couple drops of engine oil into the hole, and then replace the plug. Check your air and fuel filters and replace if they are dirty or clogged.  Follow the recommendations found at LawnCare.com.
Once you’ve completed these chores, feel free to visit yet another website for more
suggestions—simple ones-- on how to maintain your Orlando FL home during the summer months.  So much for hammock time!
