Is ZamZuu A Scam – A 3rd Party Look Into Their Business Model

ZamZuu is an emerging company that appears to be a major player in the e-commerce arena with it’s continual profits as a “discount online store” of sorts. Some questions have been risen regarding ZamZuu’s success though. Many people unfamiliar with network marketing think ZamZuu could be a scam. Is it?

NETWORK MARKETING
Zamzuu attracts some negativity because it is a network marketing company (also known as Multi-Level-Marketing or an MLM). Network Marketing is referred to as a “pyramid scheme” by some individuals because it’s members can profit from people they recruit into the business. There’s one huge difference between the two though. A network marketing company, such as ZamZuu, has a product or service for sale, whereas an illegal pyramid scheme does not.

ZamZuu is not the only company to operate using this business model (some big names include Amway, Avon, and Tupperware). They choose to market this way because they see the value in referral marketing.

What is referral marketing? There was a recent survey done that inquired about the consumer’s motive on why they bought (or didn’t’ buy) a particular product. The results revealed the importance of word-of-mouth endorsements and recommendations. It was the #1 contributor in the consumers’ decision on why those chose to purchase a particular good or service. What can a company do to encourage this powerful, free tool?

Network marketing companies like ZamZuu, choose to spend very little, if any, on advertising in the traditional sense. Because of this, they can keep their prices lower than the competition and be able to pay distributors to market for them. They pay more to members who recruit additional distributors for a simple reason. If there wasn’t an incentive to recruit additional members, the company would eventually go out of business.

You may find it interesting that Warren Buffet, Donald Trump, and Robert Kiyosaki have all endorsed this network marketing model.
I believe the people that call ZamZuu a scam, just because it’s a network marketing company, are uninformed on the facts. Let’s take a look at the actual company.

ZAMZUU
Zamzuu was created to take advantage of the popularity of shopping online. Customers can shop at over 700 stores through Zamzuu. Some big name retailers in their system include Curcuit City, Target, and Wal-Mart. Shoppers benefit by receiving commissions and cash-back for shopping through the ZamZuu website. This gives them incentive to login to a distributor’s Zamzuu page and shop there instead of curcuitcity.com, for instance, where they would receive no additional perks.

If you are looking to make some extra money you could also become a merchant. An initial fee of $249 is required to set up your customized retail store followed by a $49.95 monthly cost for maintaining your website. Once you start to build your business you can receive up to 50- 60% commissions and gain health and life insurance!

HOW TO GROW YOUR ZAMZUU BUSINESS
If you are interested in this opportunity, it would be wise to examine ways to market online effectively. Once you learn and implement these marketing techniques you will have the advantage over 95% of your competitors and be able to explode your business! Your friends and family members may shop from your site from time to time, but no matter how popular you may be, you will see limited results. With the Internet you can access a much broader audience and make some real cash with your ZamZuu opportunity!!

Advantages of Travertine Flooring To Add Value To Your Home

If you are looking to add great value to your home then considering travertine tiles to add that spice of elegance and beauty. Travertine floors are made from the majestic natural stone and offer incredible depth and colour, adding a great aesthetic appearl to your home. Travertine flooring has its advantages and limitations. Understanding your lifestyle, needs and preferences is key to ensuring that the function of this flooring option is fully maximized for your home.

So what exactly is travertine?

Travertine flooring is made from travertine, a type of limestone that forms through mineral deposits, particularly in and around hot springs. Travertine limestone is composed of calcium carbonate, the same material that makes stalactites and stalagmites.

Travertine tiles have been used for many years not just for its durability but also for its looks and texture. The Romans, for example, built many of their famous buildings using travertine. A notable example is the Colosseum, a building made mostly from the material and has remained as one of the most enduring landmarks in Italy. It is also commonly found in some of the world’s oldest buildings.

So what are the advantages of travertine flooring?

Travertine flooring is quite durable and with sufficient care, it can last for many years and maintain its beauty. When sold, the material is usually displayed with a mark indicating its hardness on the MOH scale. In general, travertine registers at the MOH scale with a 3-4 rating, which is near or equivalent to that of marble. As long as it is sealed, treated and cared for, it can withstand regular foot traffic plus lots more.

If your flooring is not sealed and installed in its rough form, it offers excellent traction. This is why a travertine paver is safer to use than ceramic tiles outdoors in the garden or patio. Travertine also comes in several colours such as beige, white or ivory, brown, red and gold so tiles can be matched to a preferred colour scheme. It is also processed and sold in different finishes such as chiselled, brushed, tumbled and honed.

What are the disadvantages of travertine flooring?

Travertine flooring is made out of natural limestone. If it is unsealed, it can be damaged or stained by high-acid products because it is by nature porous. Travertine is alkaline and will react when it comes in contact with acids from liquids and foods. It can also be damaged over time due to corrosion if cleaned using acid-based products. It also tends to be rather slippery when wet, especially if it is polished.

This type of flooring is also a high-end construction material and as such, tends to be priced at a premium. It is possible it can be as expensive as granite tiles or even more. Travertine flooring also behaves similarly to other natural stone materials in that it can chip or break and is vulnerable to scratching. It also tends to be quite heavy, particularly the larger 12″x12″ tile units, which can weight as much as 2.5kgs.

Travertine flooring also requires regular care and maintenance and may not be the best option in homes where there are kids and/or pets if it is unsealed. Very often you’ll find that it is used more often in the patio and living room areas and occassionally in the kitchen or bathroom.

Home Emergency Cover The facts

Home Emergency Cover is one of many general insurance policies designed to make your life a little easier. It works by providing you a set amount of cover for a wide range of domestic-related emergencies, to limit the damage, expenses and inconvenience caused by these type of incidents.

Typical things that such policies are used to protect against include:

Boiler breakdown
Drainage trouble
Loss of hot water
Central heating failure
Plumbing problems, including burst pipes
Electrical failure
Security issues (such as damaged doors or windows)
Roof damage (due to adverse weather conditions)

Within these basic cover options, there’s scope for a whole range of repairs. For example home security could also include cover for lost keys, and some policies may even include optional extras such as pest control. Be aware though that protected species would not fall under a pest control policy.

What could I use Home Emergency Cover for?

A particularly bad patch of weather could cause damage to your roof, which may in turn cause a leak and affect the interior of your house. A boiler breakdown could cause a similar level of discomfort in the home, leaving you without heating or hot water. A Home Emergency policy would provide swift response to any of these domestic emergencies, with a qualified repairman coming out to your home to fix the issue.

An emergency call-out like this would usually be costly, especially if it’s out of normal working hours, so having Home Emergency Cover is a useful way of avoiding the unexpected bills usually associated with fixing a mishap around the home. By limiting any internal damage to your home, this policy would also help to reduce your need to claim on any other such insurances you may have, like home insurance.

It’s important to note that these repairs would be to make your home safe and secure and prevent any further damage to your home, so be aware that the policy will not usually pay for any repair to cosmetic damage.

What does a good policy look like?

Above all, a good policy should provide a high level of cover at an affordable price. It should include at least 500 of cover per claim and there should be as few restrictions as possible – you can never predict what may happen a few months down the line, so the lower the excess and the higher number of callouts included, the better.

What should I look out for?

Before you buy, be sure to check the small print as some policies may have restrictions. These could be on the material of the structure of your home, the fabric of your roof (many policies won’t cover a thatched roof, for example), or the age or type of the central heating boiler used in the home. It’s important to be sure that your home falls within the policy’s limits, but that’s not to say all products out there are restrictive – some will be far more lenient when it comes to the differing aspects that make up your home.

Where possible, choose cover that can be bought on an annual, rather than monthly basis. Monthly instalments automatically include interest, so naturally it’s more expensive to pay this way when compared to the annual option. Paying annually may mean that your balance will take a bit of a blow, but if you’re able to save a few pounds, it’s an option worth considering.

How To Find The Newest Merchandise Of Delhi Dynamos Fc

The amazing Indian Super League, India’s own football league is going to start from twelve October, and as India anticipates for this football league, here is most of you should know about it.

Awaking Indian football out of coma
The Indian Super League was organized in 2013 after seeing that a lot of Indians are passionate about soccer, but sadly, have no national soccer league with International allure to watch. The ISL aims to turn the table.

It will consist of eight franchise clubs, owned from people and companies across the country. The competition will start in October and end in December.

The 8 clubs that will compete in this competition are:

Atletico de Kolkata, coached by Antonio Lopez Habas, with Spain as the foreign draft.
Chennai Titans, practiced by Marco Materazzi with Italy as the foreign draft.
Delhi Dynamos FC, practiced by Harm van Veldhoven with Netherlands as the foreign draft.
FC Goa, practiced by, Zico with Brazil as the foreign draft.
Kerala Blasters FC, trained by David James with England as the foreign draft.
Mumbai City FC, trained by Peter Reid with England as the foreign draft.
North East United FC, coached by Ricki Herbert with New Zealand as the foreign draft.
FC Pune City, assisted by Franco Colomba with Italy as the foreign draft.

While building their clubs, each squad will have to sign:
At least 7 foreigners, out of which 2 will be from the club and five will be from the foreign player draft;
One marquee player, which in the words of AIFF is “A foreign recruit who has represented his country in any of the continental championships like the European Championship, Copa America, African Nations Cup, Asian Cup, or FIFA World Cup will be called a marquee player;” and
14 Hindustani homegrown players, four of which have to be local players from the city the team belongs to.

Important Ownership in the HeroISL
The competition is owned by Reliance Industries Ltd, Star India Pvt. Ltd. and IMG Worldwide Inc. It would be aired exclusively on STAR Sports and will have Hero MotoCorp as the cup; thus the name Hero Indian Super League. From Bollywood, we have John Abraham who co-owns the club North East United FC, Ranbir Kapoor who co-owns the Mumbai City FC outfit, Abhishek Bachchan who co-owns Chennaiyin FC team, Salman Khan who co-owns the FC Pune City club, and Varun Dhawan who is the brand ambassador of the FC Goa team. From the field of Indian Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar is the co-owner of the Kerala Blasters FC outfit and Sourav Ganguly is the co-owner of the Atletico de Kolkata team.

HeroISL rules:
Every year, the league would be played between October and December. Each outfit will play against all other clubs twice on a home-and-away basis. The top four teams will finish in the finals.

Financing the team
Team owners’ investments in the Indian Super League are worth having a look. Different squads have invested a great amount to attract foreign players:

Goa: 430.000 USD
Chennai Titans: 380.000 USD
Atletico de Kolkata: 350.000 USD
Mumbai City: 330.000 USD
Kerala Blasters: 315.000 USD
Pune City: 280.000 USD
Delhi Dynamos: 260.000 USD
North East United: 260.000 USD

With this kind of financing and international prestige towards the ISL, this is surely a soccer competition you would not want to miss! Possibly a surge to bring soccer in India to a higher level!

Storage Advice for Lovely, More Spacious Homes

Are your possessions riding roughshod over your home?

Just because modern homes are smaller than those built a generation ago doesn’t mean we place fewer demands on them. If anything, the fast, always-on pace of 21st century living puts greater demand than ever on our living space. Taking control and getting creative with storage opens up rooms and surfaces, making even small homes feel light and spacious.

Less is More

Whisper it softly, but decluttering is still the best solution. You don’t have to throw all your precious items and heirlooms away, you just need to be picky about the ones on show and find alternative storage for the others. Displaying just one or two choice items, leaving plenty of open space around them, not only focuses attention on the items themselves, it creates a sense of space and openness.

Start by clearing out cupboards. If you have cabinets full of items you never use, you end up with nowhere to put the things you do use. Arm yourself with a few strong boxes and pack away anything that’s lurking in a cupboard that you haven’t touched for the last six months.

Be ruthless because you’re not going to actually throw anything away. You’re just creating a divide between what you use and what you don’t. Perform this exercise throughout the house, but pay particular attention to kitchen cupboards where machinery and gadgets can quickly take over.

Choose Your Exhibits

Having taken care of cupboards, turn your attention to items you keep on display. In order to stay on display, each item must meet two of the following criteria:

You love it It’s useful It complements your decor

If an item only meets one of the conditions, pack it away for now.

Having cleared out cupboards beforehand, you’ll have space to stow things you want close at hand but not on display (like craft or hobby equipment).

Take the same approach with furniture. If you have inherited pieces that you can’t bear to part with but which don’t fit into your home, putting them into storage gets them out of the way while keeping them safe. Dismantle larger pieces if possible by removing legs from tables, for instance, or separating the top and bottom halves of dressers. Wrap delicate items in old blankets to protect them from damage.

Practical Storage Solutions

There are a few different options for the furnishings or boxes you’ve packed:

Stack them in the loft or basement/cellar Store them in the garage or shed Rent a self storage unit

The final choice is an individual one, but for security and peace of mind it’s hard to beat self storage units. This is especially true if your items are precious or if they’ll suffer when stored in a damp or otherwise unfriendly environment. The convenience is hard to beat, with rental periods from just a week and no long term contracts, so you retain complete control over what and for how long you store things. The other advantage, of course, is that you’re not taking up space at home when the original idea was to create space. You’ll also find the sizes of rooms available are suitable for those with just a few boxes right up to those with a houseful of items to store. It’s definitely a solution worth investigating if this is a new idea to you.

Taking control and reclaiming your space is a liberating experience. Whether your house is bijou or palatial, it can always be more spacious and more lovely when you maximise your storage options.

The Different Types Of Home Builders

Many people choose to build their own home because they can create exactly the type of space they want. But after deciding to build a home, people must find a quality construction company who can turn their designs into a well-built, reliable structure. In general, there are different areas that builders may specialize in: high-end custom homes, production homes, and small, hands-on jobs.

As the name implies, high-end custom home builders usually handle more expensive jobs. They usually have a great deal of experience working with high spenders who demand quality above cost. These types of builders frequently work with architects and professional designers who work with the customers, interviewing them about what they want in a home and creating plans for it. Because of the extreme attention to detail, use of high-end building materials, and coordination of several different professionals, these builders typically charge the most amount of money and are often not viable options for first-time home buyers.

Construction companies that specialize in production homes are more common than builders of high-end homes and are also more affordable. These types of builders usually build several homes a year using plans that appeal to a wide variety of buyers. Most production homes are found in new subdivision areas and usually appropriate for buyers of new homes who want basic features without too much customization. The majority of buyers live in production homes.

Small home builders are so named because they are a part of a small construction company, not because they build small homes. These are rarer to find than other types of construction companies, but they do offer several advantages. Some are new to building their own homes while others are more seasoned, and they usually only produce three to four houses each year. Although they build homes more slowly, they spend more hands-on time at the property, overseeing the work and the workers. In many instances, this results in higher quality craftsmanship than found in production homes. And small home builders can often help buyers customize their plan to include any desired special features.

Whether people are looking for California home builders or Connecticut home builders, finding a quality construction company is usually not difficult. And by finding a builder that fits into the right category listed above, a person can be more confident that the builder will know how to build their home at the right price.

What Robbers Look For When Breaking Into Your Home

Protecting your home security is probably one of your biggest concerns. If it is not, it should be nothing is more devastating than having your personal space violated. Beyond whatever financial setbacks you experience due to a robbery or break-in, you must contend with the personal loss of a sense of safety and security in your own house, which is something that is extremely hard to get back. Add to that the legitimate threat you might experience from a violent intruder, and this sounds like a situation you would just prefer to avoid all together!

So how do you protect your home security so that you are never the victim of an attack or crime? Well, unfortunately you can never completely eliminate the risk. But there are a lot of effective precautions you can take. Perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind when protecting your home security is to develop the mind of criminal. Once you do this, you will be able to imagine exactly what they are looking for when targeting a house. Here are some common weaknesses that criminals target when scanning through your neighborhood:

1. They look to see whether or not the house advertizes a home security system.

Criminals may not be the brightest bunch overall, but many of them are at least smart enough not to completely self-sabotage. They know that if they see a sticker in a front window or a flag on the lawn boasting the name of a home alarm company that this house is protected. They realize that if they do decide to break in, that the cops will immediately be alerted to the presence of intruders and they will be on the property in minutes. The potential criminals also realize that whoever is sleeping inside the house will also be instantly made aware of their presence, and thus better prepared to defend themselves and their homes. All in all, breaking into a house that will create this number of obstacles just does not seem worth it they will likely not get away with much more than a nice pair of shoes at the backdoor, it is very likely that they will end up spending the night and possibly the next couple of months or years in jail. So what do you learn from this? Get a home alarm, make sure to turn it on, and advertize its presence within your home.

2. They look for cracked windows.

Many people, especially those who live in suburbs or other relatively safe neighborhoods neglect the very real dangers of this modern world. Leaving a window slightly open is almost like an open invitation to a robber to jimmy it. Shut the windows when you leave the house and at night. If it is summer, get a fan!

3. They look for newspapers/mail piling up on the front stoop.

Criminals obviously prefer to strike when no one is home. The home of a family that is on vacation is thus the perfect target. Do not make it obvious that you are out of town get your mail held at the post office, and have your neighbors pick up your newspapers.

Custom vs. Semi-Custom Kitchen Cabinets

Should you go the extra mile for custom cabinets when renovating your kitchen? Constructed on site, custom cabinetry is one of three choices you have: stock, semi-custom, and custom. Custom built cabinetry comes at a price that may be worth it for many people.

The Value of Custom Cabinets

Stock cabinets are the go-to cabinet for many homeowners, as they are reasonably priced and readily available, so you will have a very short lead time to obtain them. There are several compromises involved when you go with them.

These products come in preset sizes that are usually 12″ or 24″ deep and up to 36″ high. While there are stock cabinets that fit over the refrigerator, they are not designed to go to the ceiling for added storage. The width ranges from 12″ to 60″ wide. If you need another size, you might need to buy the closest size and use spacers to make them end where you needed too or scale your remodel to what is available.

Some stock cabinets are crafted in wood or plywood, although lower end pressed wood models are available. They come in a limited array of colors and door styles which may fall short of the personalized look you want. Buying standard can save you money if you find something you like, but installation is extra.

Move up to Custom Cabinets

For just the look you want, custom crafted cabinets offer an infinite range of materials and styles of door, drawers, and hardware. What sells most buyers on these individually created units is that they can be made in any size you need. If you want the maximum amount of storage, you can order them to reach the ceiling. To fill the space in your home, they can be made any width. They will look as if they were made to order for your home – which they were.

Whether you need a large expanse of cabinets for a very large kitchen, precise built ins for a tiny kitchen, or additional cabinetry for storage units in the family room that adjoins the kitchen in your open floor plan home, hand-crafted cabinets offers the best solution for your space. Buying custom also assures that you have all the features you need built into your cabinets, including features such as soft close doors and special features such as pull-out bins, glass doors, corbels, inlays, turn posts, integrated garbage cans, spice pullouts or lazy Susans, and well-made drawers with dovetail construction. Though hand-crafted cupboards can take eight weeks or more to make for you, the wait is well worth it to get just the look you want.

Will Semi-Custom Cabinets Work for you?

If you want more versatility in colors, styles, and hardware, moving up to semi-custom cabinetry will offer more choices. The wood used is better quality than stock. The boxes are standard like stock cabinets, but you can add the same personal touches as you can with hand-built models if you use standard sizes. Semi-custom products can be a good choice for many customers. They are available in a short time frame.

For many customers, the big drawback for custom and semi-custom cabinetry is the price, which can be several times what stock products cost. Local suppliers may offer packages that shave hundreds of dollars off the price of popular units. While opting for custom cabinets is never a cheap fix, the prices include installation and may be a better value than you think.

The Best And Worst Home Remodeling Projects

Eventually, every homeowner gets the itch to improve upon and change the look of their home. It is only natural, and in many cases, it is a worthy project that makes the home more attractive and more valuable to potential home buyers. In other cases, though, a home remodeling project can not only make the space less attractive to those looking to purchase a home, but it may even become a hindrance in the selling process. Never fear, as the following article will help you to know which projects to invest in and which projects to stay away from. So whether you are considering kitchen remodeling in Westchester or a garage conversion, the following list of the best and worst home remodeling projects will guide you down the right path.

The Best and Worst Home Remodeling Projects

When it comes to home remodels, sinking money into an unworthy project can end up costing you a lot down the road. If you have money to invest in your home, choose wisely the projects that will not only make your home more functional for your family but that will also be appealing to future families when it comes time to sell your home. Here are the best and worst home remodeling projects:

The best: Bathroom upgrade. Bathroom upgrades always add value to your home, especially an en suite upgrade to your master bathroom. You can expect around a 77% return on investment for a modest bathroom upgrade. Most bathroom upgrades include new hardware, countertops, lighting, and toilet and tub replacements. Keep in mind that you don’t need to break the bank in order to create an impressive and functional bathroom that adds value to your home.
The worst: Garage conversion. If you find yourself lacking for space, resist the temptation to convert your garage into an extra room. Many homeowners do this in order to put off moving, yet you will undoubtedly move a few years down the road, only to find that it is difficult to sell a home without a garage. Even if you aren’t using your garage to park your car, it is a poor investment to get rid of the space entirely. Most homeowners are satisfied with the more traditional square footage you receive in your home and are not interested in purchasing a home without a garage.
The best: Replacing your front door. Are you looking for a low-cost way to improve the exterior of your home and to increase the value of your home? This can be achieved simply by replacing your front door with an updated door that makes your exterior more attractive and inviting and makes your home a little more energy efficient. Homeowners who replace their front door see on average a 98% return on investment.
The worst: Home office remodel. While a home office remodel may make the space look more cohesive and less cluttered, research shows that home buyers are not as interested in an upgraded home office as you might think. This trend is increasing, as a home office used to get a return on investment of 72%, though it has now declined to around 50%. When staging your home for buyers, clean up the space and declutter it, but don’t invest a lot of money in updating the space.
The best: Kitchen remodels. A kitchen remodel is probably the single best project you can invest in your home. High-end kitchen remodeling in Westchester is worthwhile if you live in a neighborhood with expensive homes, but if you live in a more modest neighborhood, a modest kitchen upgrade will allow for as much as an 81% return on your investment.

Significance & Benefits of Private Tutoring/p>

If your aim is to enhance your aptitude and knowledge base in a certain field, all education pertaining to this subject will useful. If this statement is assumed true, then your benefits afforded by private tuition are enormous. You may have the main advantage of a whole teacher to yourself, with their lesson plans and strategies of teaching designed simply for you! It appears impossible to doubt the enormous benefits this may offer. In a class, one teacher might be faced with around thirty pupils, each with different abilities, different rates of learning, and individual strengths and weaknesses; yet regardless of this, for the majority of the lesson the teacher will be forced to treat his class like it contained just one student. He or she’ll orate in one end of the classroom, unable to gauge how effectively each pupil is assimilating the lesson. The lesson plans will be designed to match the wants of the typical pupil; and the teacher will proceed at an interest rate suitable for the common pupil.

In this environment it’s all to simple for a bright child or adolescent to fail to know one particular point, whilst the swathe of teacher talk washes over them like the unrelenting tides. It is unlikely even the very best of teachers would spot the specific point of misunderstanding cast on the countenance using one pupil, hidden amongst so many other faces. To draw attention for their lack of understanding can be intimidating for the pupil: everybody else is silent, so they have to have understood. Do I do want to draw focus on myself? All too often the misunderstanding goes unexpressed and unaided. The obvious good thing about one to 1 tuition is that the tutor can tailor their teaching style to the abilities of these student. They will be able to gauge the amount of the pupils understanding, and, more to the point, track down the resources of misunderstanding, and deal together effectively. Away from the bustle of the classroom, the student will feel more in a position to voice their difficulties; and having only one pupil to manage, the teacher could be more capable of resolving them.

Set alongside the conflicts of the classroom, fraught with distractions and intimidations from other pupils, the relaxed environment of tutor and student can be quite a safe haven of erudition. Most tutors is going to be willing traveling to the pupil’s house, allowing them the main benefit of learning in a pleased home location.A tutor will be able to concentrate their teaching on a certain area: the pupil may be very competent in mathematics overall, but be deficient in calculus, with this specific weakness undermining their whole confidence in the subject. Maybe they’re highly literate and experienced in English language, but shy away from public speaking. The syllabus may demand some oral work (foreign languages certainly do), so it will be a shame if this kind of and minor deficiency detracted from their overall grade in the subject. Even though the pupil is performing well at school or college, it is highly likely that some private tuition can give then a edge over their peers. For it’s their friends and contemporaries that they’re competing against – a lot of whomay already be receiving tuition. Within an age where extra tuition is nearly becoming the norm, it could be necessary to participate in, or risk being left behind. Only at Tutor Hunt, we think that advantages are fine, so long as they benefit you!

The Home Loans

Buying a home may be the biggest decision of your life, but choosing the right home loan may be a bigger challenge. With housing loans a plenty there are a variety of options to pick from; so how does one choose prudently?

Prepare a Budget

Before you begin shopping for your home, its good to figure out your budget. This prevents any of those nasty surprises later on, making home ownership enjoyable rather than an overwhelming burden.

For you to ascertain your purchasing power, you need to think about the following things: monthly income, monthly debts, property loan closing costs, down payment amount, and importantly, your credit history.

Set a Price Range

When you pre-qualify for a particular home loan amount, it helps your real estate agent to narrow the search to homes that fit within your price range. It is now becoming practice for a real estate agent to ask for a pre-qualification letter or a certificate of pre-approval before showing you homes. You can pre-qualify online for a property loan in a few minutes on a number of sites including ours.

Start the Search

The fun begins the search for your new home. To browse through homes for sale check various online websites, visit open houses, in the classified section of your local newspaper, or find a real estate agent. The advantage of a real estate agent is the access to homes that are not always advertised in the paper. An agent would also help you to locate homes that fit into your price range, size and other criteria.

Make an Offer

Generally, the buyer or agent will make an offer to the seller or their respective agent which would include the offer price, various contingencies, and the earnest money deposit. Once your offer is accepted, which may be after some negotiation, you and the seller will enter a home purchase agreement to finalize the deal.

Freeze the Rate

After signing a home purchase agreement, you’re ready to lock-in an interest rate on your housing loan. This freezes your interest rate of the loan and protects you against market fluctuations for a specific time period. Market fluctuation only affects Adjustable Rate Mortgages, which are home loans where the interest rates change with the index.
