‘Tis The Season

Tis the season to be asked by your family and friends what you’d like as a holiday gift this year. Coming up with a great idea on the spot can be tough, and surely you don’t want another knitted sweater. Here are a few items we would like to suggest that will add to your beautiful home!

  • Hey Alexa! Smart bluetooth speakers can play your favorite music, check the weather and traffic, read you the news, and more convenient features with a simple verbal command.
  • Smart Plug – These easily plug into an existing outlet and let you control lights and appliances from anywhere in the world.  This can help create the appearance of being home while on vacation, or even just pulling into the driveway to a well-lit house.
  • Video Doorbell – Did you know that you can stream live video and audio from your front door? These models allow you to answer your doorbell on a mobile device, provide instructions for someone dropping off a package, or even advise a salesperson of disinterest in their product. Keeping tabs on entry and exit is great for safety purposes, too.
  • Smart Thermostat – Save energy and money with a smart thermostat to control the heating and cooling in your home from anywhere, at home or from your phone.

Whether you are converting to a Smart Home with these items or making home improvements, tapping into your home’s equity can be a great way to fund any project. Homeowners Financial Group has a number of refinance options that allow you to access YOUR money to assist with budgeting. Credit card rates can run as high as 20%, but with mortgage rates still near historic lows, you can take advantage of an inexpensive way of completing the honey-dos. If you are interested in talking about these options, or looking to buy a property to fix up, please contact me today!
