When and How to Refinance Your Mortgage

Many homeowners choose to refinance to lock in a fixed interest rate or reduce their monthly payment. However, a lower payment doesn’t always mean you’ll save money. Knowing the right time and process for refinancing goes a long way toward making a wise decision.

Refinancing Pros and Cons

There are several pros to refinancing.

-Lower interest rates can significantly reduce your monthly payment and the overall amount you pay.

-Shortening the length of your mortgage term increases your monthly payment, but saves you much more in the long run. However, be aware that you may do just as well by paying a little extra each month under your current terms.

Say Hello to Ello

A new social network is taking the world by storm. With invitation-only access, there has been a massive rush of invite requests of late. Completely ad free, Ello puts an emphasis on simplicity and design. Created by a small group of artists and designers, it was originally intended to be just a private network. As interest in the project grew, the creators decided to have a public version. Ello is attracting more and more users who are turned off by the tactics of other social networks. 

How Is Ello Different?

Ello is making a point of being different. It may be this difference that is driving people in droves to the social network. The company has a manifesto that details the purpose and ideology behind the product. It starts by pointing out what has become a reality – other social networks have become a platform for advertisers. “We believe a social network can be a tool for empowerment,” states the company manifesto. “Not a tool to deceive, coerce and manipulate — but a place to connect, create and celebrate life.”

Weatherproofing for Winter Storms

Weatherproofing for Winter Storms

A winter wonderland full of sparkling snow, hot chocolate, crackling fireplaces and bright laughter will soon be here. There’s nothing quite like making memories of goofily dressed snowmen or flopping into fresh drifts of icy crystals to make snow angels. Make sure the warmth of your home stays where it belongs when you and your rosy-cheeked friends and family come in from the cold. Take the time to weatherproof your home properly.

Finding Leaks

You don’t need high-tech equipment to find leaks around doors and windows. Loosely tape a tissue to a straightened wire hanger, shut off fans or other sources of inside air currents, and hold the tissue-taped end near your window sill or door frame. If it flutters, you have a leak.

Another easy option requires a bit of caution. Light a candle and hold it near the place you suspect isn’t airtight. Make sure you’re not breathing directly on the flame. If the flame wavers, there is a draft. Move any curtains or other loose material aside before trying this method.
