 Is Now The Best Time To Buy Tulsa Real Estate?– The Feds have declared that they will raise consumer interest rate in 2015.  This will affect mortgage rates.  If purchasing is a plan in the near future, many people are considering doing it now.  Some are doing it in order build or buy a new home.  Others are considering business and commercial opportunities. Many years ago, we recall the price of property being at X amount and now we know that the value of the property is worth much more.  That is a reminder that purchasing while rates are low enables owners to own property for less.  Remember to consider if you want to buy a home or build a home that you want to own?  Whatever you desire- commercial or residential- consider when is the best time to buy?  Contact the professionals at TTCU The Credit Union or Darryl Baskin of eXp Realty to help you discover what the best choice is for your family and your situation.  For all your Tulsa mortgage needs, contact TTCU at 918-749-8848 or www.ttcu.com.

 Tulsa Insurance Trends for 2015– Tedford Insurance is an independent insurance company meaning that we work with different carriers.  As far as pricing goes, many customers have seen insurance prices double or triple in the last couple of years.  Because of the amount insurance has paid out in home claims the last few years (appx $1700 per home) Oklahoma insurance rates and statistics didn’t look good.  Because 2014 was a pretty good year with lower claims, 2015 should level off with pricing.  There are also higher wind/hail deductible trending now.  For many homeowners, this is a change from what their policy was previously.  There is also a trend towards actual cash value on the roof versus paying full replacement value.   When purchasing a home consider the age of the roof, and how the insurance company treats various roofing factors in the policy.   Another thing to consider is that credit score plays a role in the cost of your insurance costs.  There is a strong correlation between late and slow pay and the likelihood of claims.  A great way to help offset this is to keep your credit score in good health and make sure you are not late or failing to pay your bills.

Preparing Your Tulsa Home For Sale– There are many things that need to happen while preparing your home for sale.  This process can be broken down into bits and pieces so that the process isn’t as stressful, overwhelming, and time consuming.  Read the helpful article at Home Guide Tulsa now and begin the process of preparing your home for sale.  Keep in mind you want to buyers to be able to picture themselves in your home.  If your home is overwhelmed with family pictures of extremely personalized things buyers will have a hard time to seeing themselves there.  It doesn’t mean that there should be no pictures of family but just not too many or walls full of them.  Also, its a good time to get rid of clutter and the things that you don’t use regularly.  You can put these things in storage or if you don’t have tons of stuff, consider putting it in the garage.  If placing in the garage, consider putting it in a rectangular shape where your car would be parked.  This helps buyers visualize a car fitting there.  If you put it up against the wall, the garage will feel smaller. For more information on preparing your Tulsa Home for sale, contact The Baskin Real Estate Specialists of eXp Realty at 918-732-9732(Darryl), 918-740-0077 (buyer hotline), 918-258-2600 or www.darrylbaskin.com.

Tulsa mortgage– Rates will be going up.  Rates cannot stay this low forever.  Sometimes it seems like we keep claiming rates will go up but they remain low.  They will go up.  Consider your families needs over the next 5-10 years.  If you will be needing a larger or smaller home or different home needs, consider moving sooner versus later.  Everyone has different needs and the same decision isn’t right for everyone.  Think carefully through your needs and your future goals and plans.  Would a higher house payment be a hindrance?  Will you be stuck in your home if interest rates increase?  Talk to your Tulsa mortgage officer or Tulsa Realtor for some professional advice.  Contact TTCU The Credit Union at 918-749-8828 or www.ttcu.com.

Risk Management 101–  Risk is uncertainty.  MEAT is an acronym we will use for risk management.

If you do a high wire act, there is some risk management that will occur.  Here are some examples….

M- Mitigation- harness myself in-  mitigate the risk of falling.

E- Eliminate- don’t do it.

A-Accept risk- it is what it is- do it anyway.

T- Transfer- pay someone else to do it for you- transfer risk to insurance company.

This is a basic look at risk management but there are other things to consider.  The insurance company may require certain things in order to give you the policy or they pay completely deny the policy.   For more information on Tulsa area insurance contact Tedford Insurance at 918-299-2345 or www.tedfordinsurance.com.
