You shouldn't save money when buying a house..by skipping a home inspection. It is a natural to try and minimize the cost of purchasing a home in Teays Valley, WV. After all, saving enough money for a down payment was challenging enough, now there are pre-paid costs such as homeowners insurance and taxes, and closings fees that need to be covered.

  The last of the warm autumn days have left and winter is about upon us. If you haven't already, now is the time to prepare your Teays Valley home for the winter season. I have listed some simple steps you may want to do, before the snow and cold weather sets in, to help protect your largest assest. Cover or take inside any patio furniture. Now is a good time to oil the nuts and bolts to prevent rust and insure easy removal if the need should arise. While you have the WD-40 out, you should go ahead and oil door hinges and mailbox doors. Doing it at a regular time each year will help you to remember as well as prevent rust. Drain water out of birdbaths, fountains, and pools.

Mortgage rates for Teays Valley homes are at their lowest in years. According to the Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Market Survey, the 30 year fixed rate is 3.99% and the 15 year fixed rate is 3.30%. What does this mean for you if you are interested in buying a Teays Valley house for sale? You can now buy more house for the same amount of money. For example, a house costing $250,000 would have a monthly payment of $1762.75 on a 15 year fixed rate. That same house just a few years ago when rates were double what they are now, would have cost $2150.38. That is a difference of $387.63 per month. Spending that extra $387.63 a month, you could now purchase a Teays Valley house for sale listed at $305,000. That is a $55,000 difference. ===========================================================...
