When house hunting in warm weather, your primary concern may be air conditioning. But don't forget to consider heating. Don't push your housing budget so close to the maximum of what you can afford that an increase in your heating bill could push you over the financial edge.
When installing roof shingles, do not nail above the sealant strips or the mid-section of the shingle.
Running a ceiling fan in the summer can make you feel 4 degrees cooler, even without air conditioning. Remember to run your ceiling fan counter-clockwise in the summer and clockwise in the winter.
It usually takes a lender between 1-6 weeks to complete the evaluation of your application. It's not unusual for the lender to ask for more information once the application has been submitted. The sooner you can provide the information, the faster your application will be processed. Once all the information has been verified, the lender will call you to let you know the outcome of your application. If the loan is approved, a closing date is set up and the lender will review the closing process with you. And after closing, you'll be able to move into your new home.
