Many times, advertisements create a false impression about reverse mortgages. Marketing depicts them as a simple, cheap way by which older homeowners can finance their retirement. It is critical to understand how reverse mortgages work because failure to do so might harm your financial future.

Studies show that many homeowners do not have a proper understanding of reverse mortgages. For a better understanding of what reverse mortgages are all about, here are some facts that you need to know:

You should understand that reverse mortgages are a home loan

Reverse mortgages are equity-secured, interest-bearing loans. You should also know that a reverse mortgage is not a government benefit. What it does is that it gives you the opportunity to convert your home equity into funds that can to use to cover any needs. 

Also, you must not forget that it comes with compounding interest and fees that, like any other loan, require repayment. Reverse mortgages are different from other home loans because there is no principal payment or interest during the time of the loan. Instead, your principal balance grows by the addition of this interest.

It is possible to forfeit your property with a reverse mortgage 

Another important fact that you should bear in mind concerning a reverse mortgage is that you can lose your home. Contrary to popular reverse mortgage advertising that you can always retain the ownership of your home, and that you can stay there for as long as you like, you might forfeit your property if you do not meet all their loan requirements. 

Examples of some loan obligations are home maintenance costs, property taxes, and others. If you are unable to meet all the loan requirements, you might lose your property to the lender. Losing your home not a palatable situation because you no longer have a place to rest your head and there is no more home equity.

You can outlive your loan money

Advertisements on reverse mortgages may tell you that they guarantee your financial security for the rest of your life. Do not rely on this statement. It is essential that you make necessary financial backup plans for your future.

Talk to your qualified financial advisor and consider all your options before signing up for a reverse mortgage. If you have a home with a reverse mortgage that you wish to sell, speak to your real estate professional about your options.

When your kitchen or another part of your home could use a bit more light, consider adding skylights instead of lamps or light fixtures. Skylights can provide your home with some important benefits. As long as you have these lights properly installed, they can offer the following advantages for your home. 

 

Increase Natural Light

Installing skylights results in more natural lighting in your home. Exposure to natural light is associated with several benefits, including improved mood. This can be a major benefit during winter when it’s hard to get enough exposure to sunlight thanks to shorter days. Natural light from skylights can also create a more pleasant ambiance in your home, resulting in a more cheerful and calming environment. If you’re planning on selling your house, keep in mind that having plenty of natural light can improve your home’s appearance and make a great impression on home buyers during showings and open houses. 

 

Reduce Energy Usage

Skylights can help you save on the amount of energy your home normally uses. With skylights installed, you’ll gain solar heat from the sun during the winter months, which means you won’t have to run your heating system as much. This reduces wear and tear on your heating system and leads to lower heating bills. When it’s warm out, you can open your skylights to get cross-ventilation inside your home, which helps cool it off. Doing this can reduce your air conditioning bills during summer. 

 

Improve Ventilation

Skylights that open up provide your home with improved ventilation. Throughout the day, hot air rises and gathers near the top of a room. This can make rooms feel stuffy and uncomfortable, especially when it’s hot out. Skylights give you a way to release this hot air while also letting in fresh air from outside, resulting in better ventilation and improved indoor comfort. 

 

Make Rooms Feel Bigger

Having a skylight or two in your home can make the room they’re in seem more spacious. While this might not be a concern in a larger home, it can do wonders for smaller homes or older homes that don’t have an open floor plan. 

 

Offer Outdoor Views

Skylights in your ceiling give you a great way to enjoy views of sunny skies during the day and starry skies at night. Depending on where you live and where you have your skylights placed, you might also have good views of forests, mountains or other natural surroundings.

You know artificial intelligence, aka aI, equipped everything is in. And while AI thermostats, home security, and doorbells are nice… they aren’t particularly exciting. I hear you. And that’s why today I”m sharing my favorite AI equipped kitchen gadgets.

Let’s start with a popular device you’ve probably overlooked - the smart speaker. You know Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. Pick your preferred flavor of brand loyalty (see what I did there?) because they can all help you out in the kitchen.

For example, have you ever been mid-recipe and realized you’re missing a critical ingredient and need a substitute? Or how many tablespoons are in a ? cup? Whether to serve red or white wine with your zoodles?

With a smart speaker, you can use voice-activated inquiries to get answers to any of your kitchen Q’s. And you won’t have to make a complete mess of your tablet trying to find it.   

Keep your trash can lid clean too by investing in a garbage bin with a motion sensor opening capability. There are so many options at all different price points, this is one techy upgrade anyone can make.

One thing you won’t have to worry about is how long to cook something for or at what temperature if you have the June intelligent oven. This convection oven is full capacity yet still can sit on your countertop. You can also spring for the “pro” version to build it into your existing cabinetry.

Or maybe you want to cook two things at the same time but need them to be at different temperatures? Samsung double oven has a removable divider allowing you to use the full capacity or split it into two. And of course, it has wi-fi connectivity to monitor cooking progress from anywhere.

If you’re the type who can’t just throw two things in the oven at a “good enough” temperature you value quality. The right cooking process can’t be rushed. Chances are you also feel this way about tea.

Not every variety and blend should be steeped at the same temperature water or for the same time. Each has its own best conditions for the perfect cup. But creating those conditions takes time and effort. The Mr.Coffee Tea Maker and Kettle that can be set to the right temp and brew time for every type. It’s literally as simple as pushing a button as the buttons are even clearly labeled for each type.
