    • Americans See Housing Market 'Cooling' but Becoming More Balanced

      Seventy-five percent of Americans believe their local housing market is "cooling off" following five consecutive quarters where most viewed it as “overheated,” according to the results of ValueInsured's Q4 2018 Modern Homebuyer Survey.

      In those states where homes are selling at a rapid-fire pace, 22 percent of residents in California, 19 percent in Colorado, 36 percent in Texas and 22 percent in Washington say their local market is not cooling; so keep in mind, the market may not be cooling in your particular area. As the saying goes, all real estate really is local.

      The fluctuations in market activity are most likely the reason why the ValueInsured Housing Confidence Index ticked down slightly, registering at 63 on a 100-point scale for all Americans in Q4, down 4.7 points in one year. Homeowners, historically the most confident segment on the Index, produced a score of 71.6 in Q4, the second-lowest level recorded in 30 months. These indexes, however, are still bullish overall when it comes to homeownership.

      As the market levels off and shifts a bit more to the buyer’s advantage, keep these tips in mind if you’re putting your home on the market:

      • Work with an experienced real estate agent who is skilled in local market knowledge, negotiating and marketing.
      • Make sure your home is exposed to the widest audience of prospective buyers online; ask your agent which listing sites they’re affiliated with and how your listing will be distributed.
      • Get creative with the presentation of your home, using videos, virtual tours, drone footage, social media, and more.
      • Bring in a professional home stager to make sure your home is shown in its best possible light. What you think looks good might not be the case with the general public.
      • Most importantly, follow your agent’s advice on how to price your home. In a buyer’s market, choosing a price that’s neither too high nor too low is essential to moving your home as quickly as possible at maximum profit.

    • 5 Ways to Have a Safe and Sound Home This Winter

      While our home chores this time of year tend to focus on fertilizing the lawn for next spring and battening down the hatches for energy savings, we should also be thinking about safety, especially for the seniors in our lives. Here are five steps to take, courtesy of Consumer Reports, to make your home a safe haven in the winter months.

      1. Prepare for ice. Reduce the risk of falls by stocking up now on snow melt, and putting a plan in place for shoveling. If no one at home is healthy enough to take on the shoveling chore, set up a standing arrangement with a snow-removal service or a neighborhood teenager to automatically come to your home when bad weather hits.
      2. Service your heating system. Hypothermia can occur in older adults even when the temperature is between 60 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit, so have your thermostat checked and furnace serviced to make sure they’re functioning properly.
      3. Inspect space heaters. While they can be necessary in case of a heating system failure, space heaters are also a fire hazard, so be sure to check the cords and test them in advance to make sure they’re in good working order.
      4. Check all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Put new batteries in and make sure there are enough units throughout the home.
      5. Be smart about generators. If you have a generator or are thinking about getting one, know how to use it. Never operate it in an enclosed space and make sure it’s at least 20 feet from your home, windows and doors, with the exhaust pointing away from your home.

    • Data Security Concerns on the Rise

      With an estimated 270 million Americans viewing their smartphones about 14 billion times per day, it’s no surprise that we’re getting more concerned about the safety of our data online.

      Consider these findings from Deloitte's U.S. edition of the 2018 Global Mobile Consumer Survey:

      • 85 percent of consumers have concerns about companies using, storing and sharing their personal data with third parties.
      • 85 percent of respondents now believe that companies with which they interact online use their personal data "all" or "most of" the time.
      • Consumers are 14 percent less likely this year to share their photos and address books with companies they interact with online, marking a substantial change in behavior from last year.
      • With regard to mobile in-store payments, only 31 percent of respondents indicated they have ever used their mobile device to make an in-store payment, and only 14 percent do so on a weekly basis. Security concerns (42 percent) and lack of perceived benefits (42 percent) were cited as main reasons by respondents. 
      To help protect yourself online:
      • Never store usernames and passwords.
      • Don’t use the same password across multiple sites.
      • Create passwords based on phrases that only you would know.
      • Avoid using WiFi in public places, such as shopping malls and airports.
      • Use double authentication as much as possible.
      • When shopping online, use a credit card as opposed to a bank card to avoid compromising a checking or savings account.

    • DIY Tree Clean-Up? Think Again

      Has a storm come through and taken down branches or entire trees in your yard? You may think you’re able to whip out the chainsaw and take care of the clean-up yourself, but think again. Unless you have experience working with this equipment—potentially high off the ground at that—it might be wise to call in a professional.

      According to the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA), there’s a wide range of hazards to look for when it comes to downed trees and branches:

      • Overhead and/or nearby electrical wires can create potential hazards and limit the options for tree cutting.
      • Torn, hanging limbs overhead could make it extremely dangerous to cut downed limbs underneath them.
      • Wood under tension (one or both ends of the fallen tree or branch pinned under other branches or debris) can have different types of binds at different places. Releasing that tension with chainsaw cuts is extremely dangerous and can seriously, or fatally, harm the chainsaw operator.
      • Uprooted root plates or root balls are unpredictable. Cutting the trunk of a fallen tree from an uprooted plate releases the pressure holding the root plate. The roots are still anchored and may have enough tension that they’ll pull the stump and root ball back into the hole. It could suddenly sit back into the root hole, trapping anything nearby underneath it.
      • Slope and uneven footing surfaces are dangerous while operating a chainsaw.
      • Cutting branches on the ground can cause you to bury the saw bar in the dirt or hit hidden obstacles, causing chainsaw kickback. 
      If you do decide to take on the task yourself, don’t go it alone. According to the TCIA, many homeowners injured doing their own tree work were working alone at the time, significantly lengthening emergency response time and hospital stays. Always have at least one other person work with you to call for help, if necessary. And remember, removing large fallen trees should always be done by an experienced professional.

    • Dealing With Small Businesses Online

      While you may be among the growing movement to boycott Black Friday, or are one of the many left cold by Cyber Monday, you may want to consider the charm of Small Business Saturday, the Saturday following Thanksgiving, that encourages shoppers to step back from the frenzy of massive franchises and e-commerce websites, and celebrate independent "Main Street" businesses.

      In 2017, 108 million shoppers spent nearly $13 billion at indie retailers on Small Business Saturday. According to a recent survey of 1,000 adult respondents, 40 percent said that smaller, independent businesses still offer the best customer service.

      And Small Business Saturday happens online, as well. However, for some shoppers, dealing with independent retailers on the web can be a hassle. Genesys offers some tips for getting better, faster customer service from small businesses online:

      1. Use different communication options. Contacting customer service isn't limited to a phone call. Instead, make use of other communication options like texting and web chat to interact with businesses. And, social media works, too. Simply log onto Instagram, Twitter or Facebook to connect with your favorite retailer.
      2. Embrace AI. Take advantage of recent strides in artificial intelligence (AI) by talking or messaging with a chatbot to access support and resolve routine issues efficiently. Today, chatbots are smarter and more capable than ever to help you quickly check order status, find product information or process a return.
      3. Skip the hold line. When trying to access customer service over the telephone, ask for a return call instead of waiting on hold. More and more contact centers are offering a 'callback' option—so take it!
      4. Honey, not vinegar. Embody the spirit of Small Business Saturday in your interactions with support agents and business owners. During the holiday season, customer service agents deal with hundreds of anxious consumers day-in and day-out. Have patience. If you can take a few deep breaths before unleashing your frustration, it’ll make the experience happier for both you and the agent.
