Let the Sunshine In!

Now that winter is finally over spring cleaning is on lots of minds. What better way to let in those rays of sunshine than to make sure windows are squeaky clean!
What you use, how you clean and when you clean are all important to getting the shiny results you want. Here are a few window cleaning tips for spring.
First, choose a dry, cloudy day when the sun is not blazing, then the cleaner will not dry fast onto the hot windows before you have a chance to rinse and wipe them dry. If you really get the urge to clean your windows on a sunny day, make sure to start on the shady side of the house.
Second, remove loose soil and vacuum the sill and sash before cleaning the glass. If you skip this step you will have a muddy mess from all the liquid running down the window frames.
Third, spray your window with your cleaning solutions. There are many cleaning products available on the market. You can choose from concentrate, aerosols or ready to use sprayers, just make sure to use enough solution to dissolve the dirt so it can be easily wiped away. If you skimp on the amount of cleaner you’ll end up with streaks.
Fourth, dry the window. Time is of the essence in this step to ensure that those rays of sunshine can pour through a streak-free surface. Some like a squeegee tool, a microfiber clothe, newspaper or paper towel. A combination of using squeegee and microfiber clothe will decrease the time to complete the job. Dry the glass horizontally on the inside and vertically on the outside, so that if there is a streak, you’ll know which side it is on.
Spring is here, so let’s get out there and clean the windows so everyone can feel the warm rays of sunshine!

Credit Tips for First-Time Homebuyers

If you are thinking about purchasing a home for the first time, you may not know that your credit will be one of the key factors in determining whether you are approved for a mortgage and your mortgage interest rate. Your credit score is calculated using five major factors:

  • Payment history – Creditors will look at any utility bills and payments on outstanding loans or credit cards.
  • Amount owed – This is the amount of credit card or loan debt that is outstanding.
  • Length of credit history – This is determined by how long you have held credit on loans or credit cards.
  • New credit – Creditors will make note if you have opened new credit cards or taken out any loans recently.
  • Types of credit used – This is seen as your different kinds of credit, such as credit cards, auto loans or student loans.

Before you begin the home buying process, request a free copy of your credit report and check for errors, which can have a negative effect on your score. If you see any errors, be sure to dispute them. Additionally, try to begin paying off outstanding debts, since those also affect your credit score.

Once you have applied for a mortgage, avoid opening new credit accounts such as credit cards or auto loans until your home has closed. You will also want to keep the balance low on any current credit cards.

I would love to meet with you and have a conversation about your financial goals and your future home purchase.
