HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Mike HallWhich comes first — selling your home or buying another? It’s a quandary, unless carrying two homes is no trouble for you. 

Buying first might require you to write an offer “contingent” on your sale … not ideal in a seller’s market.  Selling first makes your purchase “non-contingent” and stronger, but could leave you without a home temporarily. 

 

Among the many options to explore with your agent:

· Make your sale contingent upon finding your replacement property. Buyers make all kinds of concessions today, and if they love your home, they may find this perfectly acceptable. 

· Negotiate a long closing on your sale, and/or a “rent-back” to delay your departure.  Again, buyers might be glad to flex on timing.

· As a buyer, bridge loans used to help, but they’re mostly extinct today. Similarly, a line of credit on your home might be a perfect way to get temporary funds. 

· Consult your CPA or financial adviser about tapping other assets temporarily as bridge funds, “paying yourself back” once your home sells. 

· Make your purchase offer contingent. It’s not futile!  An otherwise strong offer and some creativity by your agent may be good enough to make a seller say yes! 

Simply be OK with moving twice. It’s not the end of the world. It’s simpler in a way. Neither the sell nor the buy is complicated. You can negotiate a little more firmly on both and come out ahead financially. 

Make it an adventure.  There are worse things in life.

VIC'S AUTO CENTER - Mike KeelerGetting ready for a road trip this summer? Make sure your vehicle is as ready to go as you are.

According to the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, the following should be professionally checked before you hit the road:

Tires – Rotate about every 6,000 to 7,000 miles and get tire pressure checked. Examine tires for tread life, uneven wearing, and cupping; check the sidewalls for cuts and nicks. An alignment is warranted if there's uneven tread wear or if your vehicle pulls to one side. Check the spare and be sure the jack is in good condition.

Brakes should be inspected as recommended in your manual, or sooner if you notice pulsations, grabbing, noises, or longer stopping distance.

Air Conditioning — A marginally operating system will fail in hot weather. Have the system examined by a qualified technician. Newer models have cabin air filters that clean the air entering the heating and air conditioning system.

Cooling System — The greatest cause of summer breakdowns is overheating. The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of the coolant should be checked periodically. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps, and hoses should be checked by a pro.

Other things that should be checked are engine performance, oil, oil filter, windshield wipers, lights and the battery.

Vic’s Automotive works on both domestic and foreign makes and models. Give us a call so we can make sure you have a trouble-free, comfortable trip.

DRNGYN - Dr. Nancy SalisburyWomen who have trouble remembering contraception, are perimenopausal, or have irregularities with their menstrual cycle may want to consider a long-acting birth control device. They are affordable (often free) and safe.

IntraUterine Devices (IUDs) are small, T-shaped devices made of flexible plastic. Inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy, IUDs may contain copper or the hormone progestin.

IUDs are very effective and last three to 12 years. The devices must be inserted by a health care provider in the office.

There are three types of hormonal IUDs. Mirena is effective for five years. Skyla and Liletta are effective for three years. Mirena is best used for cycle control. Periods often dissipate. It’s an excellent choice to manage the irregular bleeding of menopause.

A hormonal implant is another option. Implanon and Nexplanon are two such products that are safe, convenient and effective. They are matchstick-sized rods inserted into the arm by a healthcare provider. The main side effect is irregular bleeding in up to 20 percent of patients. These are very popular with patients who have trouble remembering daily pills, or those who have trouble getting to a pharmacy.

Long-acting birth control devices can be used in all ages and are usually a covered benefit under affordable care.

At Dr NGYN, we offer all of these devices. We check with your insurance provider for benefits; they are often placed at no cost to you.

Please call for information or consultation. It is our pleasure to care for you!

LAKE GROVE DENTAL - Charles Branen, DMDIt’s no secret that we only have one chance to make a great first impression.

Research done by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry has shown that your smile is one of the first features noticed when meeting someone new, and that you are more likely to be perceived as intelligent, interesting and successful with a bright, healthy smile.

Given the importance of a perfect smile, most people surveyed would be willing to spend money safeguarding their teeth as they age. The good news is, it doesn’t have to cost a lot to make changes that will enhance your natural smile.

Regular dental cleanings help keep away stains and the biofilm that leads to plaque build-up and dental decay.

Whitening products are widely available now. The products that dental offices provide are usually safer and more effective than over-the-counter products because they contain stronger ingredients, yet are less acidic.

We offer multiple choices for whitening, but two popular techniques stand out. The first is at-home custom trays that the patient loads with a whitening solution and wears for a short duration over a couple weeks or until satisfactory results are achieved. The cost is under $100 and the trays are reusable.

The other method is an in-office bleaching that takes about 90 minutes and can leave teeth multiple shades lighter. The cost is under $400 and also includes a set of trays for touch-ups.

Call our office today for a free consultation.

HARNISH PROPERTIES - Justin HarnishQ. How important is it to get pre-approved for a mortgage, especially when making an offer on a home?

A. Being pre-approved is paramount when preparing to make an offer. A listing agent and/or seller will not take your offer seriously unless they know that you can afford it.

Q. What are jumbo loans -- and how do they differ from conventional loans?

A. A jumbo loan in our area of the country (this varies around the U.S.) is any loan amount that is more than $417,000. A conventional loan is any amount borrowed that’s less than or exactly $417,000. The difference is the rate structure and how much interest one pays for either. In most cases, a conventional loan will have a more attractive interest rate.

Q. How much money will I need for a down payment? What other fees will I have to pay?

A: A borrower typically has to put 20 percent down. In addition, there are closing costs, pre-paid taxes and lender’s origination fees.

Q: What tips can you offer on choosing a mortgage lender?

A: Use a lender with a local presence! Many loans being advertised today are on the web or on your phone. You will be sent to a call center and go through the same process you would with a local lender you meet face-to-face. The rates won’t dramatically change, but what will is the accountability and the ability to communicate directly with your mortgage professional!

PETROFF CENTER - Dr. Mark PetroffSummer is here, with its whirl of weddings, reunions and special events.

If you’re considering a cosmetic pick-me-up to brighten your appearance, non-surgical beauty treatments provide quick results. Dr. Mark Petroff personally administers non-surgical injectables, including:

Juvederm — A versatile, all-around injectable filler, Juvederm gel gently reverses many signs of aging in the face, including fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet and loosening skin. It can also plump the lips, sculpt the cheeks and restore a youthful, oval shape to the face.

It is made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that works with collagen and elastin to give volume and support to the skin. It is non-animal-based and highly biocompatible. Results last about 6-9 months.

Voluma — Have your cheeks lost their youthful contours? Voluma can bring it back. It provides subtle lift in the cheek area and can reshape and contour the mid-face area. Results last up to two years with a single treatment.

Botox — Smooth crow’s feet, smile lines, frown lines and other wrinkles caused by muscle activity. This treatment relaxes muscles that cause wrinkles, allowing the skin to smooth and wrinkles to fade away. Treatment takes just a few minutes.

No downtime is required after these injections. Some patients experience minor swelling, bruising, redness, and/or itching for just a few days, but any discoloration can be covered with makeup.

Schedule a consultation with us to find the best solution to your beauty needs.

BANK OF OSWEGO - Stephen AndrewsGoing on a trip this summer?

Make sure to take your sunscreen with you — and don’t forget to ensure you won’t get financially burned while you’re away.

The safest and most convenient way to travel with your money is to take a small amount of cash with you. Debit cards and credit cards are also a good choice because they’re easy to carry, easy to use and often offer the lowest fees and the best exchange rates. In the event that it’s stolen, you can easily have it deactivated.

The Independent Community Bankers of America recommends the following tips for travelers:

· Let your community bank know when and where you’ll be traveling so that you will avoid any potential denials or fraud alerts when out-of-the-ordinary transactions are presented.

· Ask your bank about daily spending and withdrawal limits to avoid an on-the-road card denial.

· Find out which ATM or debit card fees you may be subject to at your destination.

· Take the bank’s customer service number with you, in case you have to report your card missing or stolen.

· Have a backup card stored in a different place when you travel.

· Make sure your card brands are accepted at the locations or countries to which you are traveling.

· Avoid logging into your online or mobile banking account via public wi-fi networks. Use cellular data networks or call the bank directly. When using cellular data, use virus protection to protect your accounts and phone.

Bon voyage!

EVCOT - Jonathan Wisniewski, DVMJuly 4 is almost here! While it’s a celebration for many, your scaredy cat or dog may be miserable once the fireworks start flying — sometimes days in advance.

If you know your pet suffers from noise phobias (including fear of thunder), it’s wise to plan ahead.

First of all, be aware that not all anxiety medications work the same, and efficacy varies patient to patient. Many medications can take several weeks to reach peak effects. Sedatives alone (such as acepromazine) can be used, but do not fix the anxiety — they just reduce the pet's response to the anxiety. 

As an emergency veterinarian, I cannot prescribe medications without a doctor-patient relationship, meaning I cannot dispense the medications without performing a physical examination (it's state and federal law). We get many calls every year from clients who wait until the last minute to get sedatives or medications for their pet and are upset that we cannot dispense medication without the patient coming to our hospital for a physical examination.

Pet shelters recommend the following safeguards to help calm your pet and keep it from running away:

Check your fencing for loose boards and escape routes.

Consider a Thundershirt for your dog, which swaddles and calms the pet.

Keep an eye on your cat, who won’t express its fear as dramatically as a dog, but may panic and dart out the door.

Make sure your pets have identification on their collars and are microchipped with the most current information.

Dr. Mark Petroff, Petroff Center Plastic Surgery & Medi-SpaDoes the appearance or function of your nose bother you?

Rhinoplasty is the medical term for any surgery regarding the nose or nasal structure. Most rhinoplasties I do are cosmetic, but other patients want the procedure because they have difficulties breathing, or have had an injury or accident affecting the nose.

The best candidates for rhinoplasty are at least 15 years old with a face that’s fully grown, are generally healthy and do not smoke. It’s important that the individual wants the surgery for personal reasons — rather than pressure from others — and has realistic goals for the procedure.

I will do a thorough evaluation of your nasal structure, medical history and overall health to determine whether the procedure is safe for you and meets your goals.

Rhinoplasty is performed in our state-of-the-art surgery center under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. There are two techniques used: a closed procedure, in which incisions are made within the nostrils; and an open procedure, in which an incision is made across the tissue between the nostrils.

Afterward, you can expect some bruising, soreness, and swelling for a week or so after your surgery. A nasal splint is used for a seven days to help your nose maintain its new shape.

Most patients are able to return to school or work 7-10 days following their procedure. Results are visible upon splint removal, however it may take months before you see the final result of your surgery.

Justin Harnish, Harnish PropertiesQ: What's your best advice for first-time homebuyers?

A: Be prepared. Have your finances and lender in order so you are ready to “strike,” as the first-time homebuyer market (typically price-driven) is highly competitive.

Q: What does a Buyer’s Agent do?

A: A good broker has their finger on the pulse of the active market and shadow market. A broker is a guide to getting the right deal done and helps to remove the emotion from the transaction. Stick to business, it’s not worth overpaying no matter how hot the market is!

Q: Does it cost money to have a Broker’s help? What is a Buyer’s Agent?

A: It does not cost any additional money and in fact, a good broker will save you money. A Buyer's Agent represents the sole interests of the Buyer.

Q: Can't I just find homes for myself online?

A: One can certainly identify homes of interest online, as 98 percent of homebuyers begin on the internet, but it’s best to engage a Buyer’s Agent to represents your interests.

Q: How long does it take to buy a home and why?

A: In this market it can take a while; buyers need to be prepared to be patient and have their hearts broken due to the low inventory and competitive environment. The typical closing time from an accepted offer to close of escrow is 45-60 days. It can take quite a while to get an appraisal done due the high volume of transactions today.

Dr. Branen, Lake Grove DentalDental implants are used to replace single or multiple missing teeth and have been in use since the 1970s.

While techniques and designs have improved steadily with time, dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.

When patients lose teeth, the bone that supports those teeth is gradually lost. The jawbone loses its shape and density and, eventually, the facial skeleton changes, thereby changing the soft tissue structures like gum tissues, cheeks and lips.

Like the root of a tooth, an implant is secured in the jaw bone. Made of titanium, it is strong, lightweight and biocompatible so the body will not reject it.

After it has healed in place, a crown, bridge or denture can be attached. Dental implants are wonderful because they stabilize bone and prevent the loss that causes that sunken-face look.

Patients can eat, chew, smile, talk and look completely natural.

One of the first questions patients have about implants is the cost. Initially they are more costly, but since they last so much longer than traditional bridgework, they end up being more cost effective.

Dr. Branen has received extensive training and continues to work with one of the leading oral surgeon instructors in the Pacific Northwest.

Most implants are done in office with local anesthesia, just the same as a routine dental filling. To answer more questions on this or any dental concerns, call Lake Grove Dental or visit our website today.
