Practical Advice From Olympia’s Van Dorm Realty – First-Time Home Buyers

first_imgDiane and Jeff PustBuying a home will be the largest purchase you will make in your lifetime.  Having an educated partner alongside while you select your perfect first home is critical.A quick chat with Jeff and Diane Pust, owners of Van Dorm Realty, provides some key points for first-time home buyers.  And, with more than 25 years in the real estate industry, they have helped thousands of Thurston County families get into their first home.You don’t have to pay a realtor. The commission is in the price of the home.  Showing a home, negotiating the purchase price, navigating through the inspection process, and solidifying the loan documents is part of the real estate brokers job.  It’s a free service to home buyers, paid for by the seller.The market for homes under $250,000 is moving quickly.  “There is such a low inventory that when good ones come on the market buyers rush to them within days,” reports Pust.  First-time home buyers are grabbing up these properties.  Ask a real estate broker to help you look so you don’t miss a super home to put down your roots.Loan programs make this the right time.Pust talks about programs such as the FHA program that lets first-time home buyers borrow the down payment for their home.Realtors are survivors.“The realtors that are left in the business are survivors,” remarks Pust.  “They have experienced a bad market and know how to make a living in the business.  The realtors that are left are the ‘cream of the crop.’”To discuss options with an Olympia real estate broker, contact Van Dorm Realty.Van Dorm Realty1530 Black Lake Blvd SW, Suite FOlympia, WA 98502360.943.3800 Facebook0Tweet0Pin0last_img read more

Dredge material in Lake Erie being addressed

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With so much focus on agriculture as the source of excess nutrients in Lake Erie, it seems like the challenges associated with what to do about large quantities of dredging material being dumped into the Maumee Bay have been comparatively ignored.Well, if it was being ignored as a part of the problem, it is not any more. Around 800,000 to 1 million cubic yards of dredge material collected to keep the Port of Toledo clear is dumped into the open lake each year. There the material is re-suspended in the water where it can potentially provide nutrients to harmful algae.The challenges of dredge material were addressed under Senate Bill 1 that was implemented this summer. The bill bans the disposal of dredge material into Lake Erie in Maumee Bay after July 1, 2020 unless authorized by the director of the Ohio EPA.In addition, there is some experimental work being done in Toledo to better learn how to handle the challenging material.“At the Port of Toledo there is a 16-acre site which we’ll be doing construction work on this fall,” said Scudder Mackey, chief at the Office of Coastal Management with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. “We are going to create four cells where we are going to perform experiments using dredge material in terms of its suitability for agricultural use. We are going to try to manage the water in this sediment in a better way and also see if we can get the types of material that that ag community would be interested in. We think that taking material from the lake that came off the fields and placing it back on the land could be the most common sense thing to do.”The material that is dredged is largely comprised of potentially agriculturally valuable soils.“Typically the sediments coming down the Maumee River are very fine grained clays and silts. Phosphorus and nitrogen are often bound with that sediment,” Mackey said. “We are concerned about those nutrients, but we are also concerned about the sediment loading as well. We are talking about perhaps 70,000 cubic yards being placed initially in these experimental sites. This is a very small percentage of the total dredged material, but if we find larger areas to place this material we could reduce the amount of material we are putting into Lake Erie by a significant percentage and it could be used for agricultural applications. We need to learn to treat dredged materials as a resource not a waste product.”last_img read more

Financial Tips for a Stress-Free Relocation

first_imgMake use of your resources: Knowledge is power – and knowledge is also the most important tool you have at your disposal when PCSing. Conduct research on the new location you are moving to and shop around for the best deals on housing, cars and other purchases early on in the moving process. The internet is a great source of information on both your new location and any obstacles you might be facing while planning your move. It’s also a good idea to tap into your network of friends and family to get first-hand information from anyone who has lived at this location in the past or currently resides there. There are also numerous organizations on base to help with your transition, such as the Airman & Family Readiness Center that offers a Plan My Move tool.Following the tips listed above and staying positive and focused throughout the PCS process is sure to make your relocation experience less stressful and virtually hassle-free. Treat relocation as a valuable life lesson that allows you to practice your flexibility and planning skills and remember to share best practices of your moving experience with those around you to help them in their time of transition. Have an emergency fund: It is important to have an emergency fund that covers 3-6 months of expenses regardless of if you are relocating or not. However, during relocation an emergency fund can provide you with an unprecedented level of financial security. Many of the costs associated with relocation are reimbursed but you are not likely to receive reimbursement for many weeks after they have been incurred. Knowing that you have a cushion to cover any short term financial needs associated with the move can give you the peace of mind to focus on other important matters such as finding accommodation or researching school districts. By Ayesha Haider, BA, MBA, AFC CandidateRelocation is a challenging time for even the most seasoned service members who have experienced numerous PCS moves. In addition to the emotional difficulties of leaving friends and familiar surroundings behind is the burden of starting from scratch in a foreign location. While finances may be the last thing on your mind during this hectic time, the following tips are sure to ensure a smoother, less stressful relocation for you and your family:Photo by Chris WaitsReally know what your expenses are: On the surface, the expenses associated with relocation may seem fairly obvious but there are many other “hidden” costs of relocation that are often overlooked and may result in a stressful relocation experience. Basic examples include, fuel (if you are driving to your new location), furniture/appliance replacement (for damaged items not covered by insurance), and costs associated with buying/selling a house or car. Some less obvious examples include the costs of living “on the go” such as eating out more. Keep track of your expenses by creating a list of potential expenditures associated with the move. This can even be a brainstorming activity for the whole family and a great way to introduce your children to the basics of financial management. Update your bank and utility accounts: it is crucial that your banking institutions and credit card companies are aware of your move and have your new address as soon as possible. This prevents them from sending sensitive information to an older address that may be occupied by another tenant now. It also prevents credit card companies from freezing your account due to transactions you make while on the move. In addition to your financial accounts, remember to close any utility accounts under your name that you will no longer be using. To avoid penalty fees for early termination of contracts, refer to the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA). Create a new budget for your new life: A new living situation is most likely going to have an effect on your financial situation as well. You may be paying more or less rent, have a higher or lower BAH, and may have less disposable income as a result of one spouse having to resign from their job as a result of the move. Once you’re settled into your new home, be sure to create a new budget to reflect these changes and to see how they affect your saving and investment goals.last_img read more

Rain adds to misery of Odisha’s cyclone-hit

first_imgWith pre-monsoon showers lashing the coastal districts of Odisha, thousands of families, who lost their houses in cyclone Fani, are in deep distress.Although the Odisha government has started releasing housing building assistance to the affected families, repair of houses is unlikely to be completed before monsoon in many parts of the Puri district, which was the worst affected in the cyclone that hit the State on May 3.As per the damage assessment and enumeration conducted by the Puri district administration, houses and huts of as many as 2,87,762 families were damaged in the cyclone. “While 9,059 pucca and kutcha houses have been fully damaged, 1,04,715 houses have suffered severe damage. Similarly, 1,13,221 pucca houses and 49,529 kutcha houses have been partially damaged,” the assessment report says.The State government, as per the norms of the State Disaster Response Fund and the National Disaster Response Fund, announced ₹95,100 for a person whose house (pucca or kutcha) has been fully or severely damaged. Similarly, ₹5,200 is to be paid for partial damage of pucca house, ₹3,200 for partial damage of kutcha house and ₹4,100 for damage to hut.First instalment givenThe first instalment of the house building assistance has already been disbursed. The State government had released ₹197.59 crore to the Puri district administration on June 10. Subsequently, ₹10.21 crore was released. “Prior to the disbursement of house building assistance, we had asked suppliers of roofing sheets to make the material available at the panchayat level so that people don’t face difficulties in getting them,” said Puri District Collector Balwant Singh.According to villagers, the magnitude of the damage is such that roofing material alone would not suffice. “We are facing difficulties in mobilising building materials, masons, carpenters and labourers,” said Sudarshn Behera of Bhagabatipur under Nimapara block of Puri district. Farmers were facing a twin challenge – protecting their family members and household articles from rain and taking up farming in the rainy season, Mr. Behera said.The Bhubaneswar Meteorological Centre says monsoon is likely to hit Odisha within a week. But, widespread pre-monsoon rains have been recorded in almost all coastal districts, including Puri.last_img read more
