6 Questions to Ask Before Selling Your House

May 26 5:00am Wise Bread
The idea of selling your home may be exciting, but there's a laundry list of questions you must ask yourself before even thinking about hiring a realtor. From determining if now is the best time to sell, to deciding if your curb appeal is up to par, consider this comprehensive list of presale questions to get your ducks in a row. 1. What is the remaining balance on my primary mortgage and any other home equity loans I have taken out? You first need to determine if you can afford the process of selling your home. Ideally, you'll make a profit from the sale, but this doesn't always happen. You need to check how much you owe on the mortgages and loans you've taken out. If your property is valued at more than what you owe, chances are you'll come out on top. But if you're already underwater on your loans and market or estimated value is less than what you owe the bank, you could be putting yourself at greater financial risk by selling. You'll need to pay off those debts when you sell. 2. What am I trying to accomplish with the sale of my home? Simple question: Why do you want to move? Is this a personal choice? Do you need more or less space? Are you financially strapped in your current home? You need to figure out if selling your home will actually help you achieve any of these goals. Maybe you owe too much on your mortgage, or the house sells for way less than you hoped. In this case, you're already off on a bad financial foot. 3. How much repair and cleanup work is needed to get my house ready for the highest offers? Before any potential buyer walks through your door, you have to ready your property for viewing. Smart sellers understand that this may be quite the undertaking. Attention to detail outside and inside is important to show off your home's best assets and visually persuade the buyer that your home should be their new home. Curb appeal is also a major selling point for most buyers, which means that you may need to hire a landscaper, plant greenery, or otherwise tidy up the exterior of your property. As this may be a substantial task (both in time and money), new questions arise: Are you willing to put the time, effort, and money into doing these repairs and cleanup, or are you willing to accept a lower market value? You may want to ask your realtor if they can recommend professional, well-rev...

How to Make Your Pet an Official Emotional Support Animal

May 26 4:30am Wise Bread
As a pet parent, I understand the emotional benefits of having a loving four-legged friend by my side. My dog, Diamond, is one of the biggest calming forces in my life. Her mellow demeanor allows me to take her to dog-friendly restaurants, on pet-sitting gigs, and more. I had always considered making her an emotional support animal (or ESA), but knowing I didn’t have a medical reason to do so kept me from taking the plunge. However, when I was diagnosed with an iron-overload disorder called Hereditary Hemochromatosis and learned I would have to deal with needles — my greatest fear — on a frequent basis, I decided to take the steps to make Diamond an ESA so I could have her with me at my doctor's office. If you are thinking about making your pet an ESA, here's what I learned when I went through the process. The difference between an emotional support animal and a service animal The first thing to note is that under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), ESAs are not considered service animals. While service animals are allowed everywhere, ESAs have limitations on where they can go. This is because service animals are specially trained to assist a person with a diagnosed physical or mental disability, whereas ESAs are not. Where you can take an ESA Based on federal regulations, there are only two places your ESA is allowed: A home you'd like to rent Under the Fair Housing Act, all landlords must make “reasonable accommodation” to permit dogs that are ESAs. When you fly Under the Air Carrier Access Act, airlines are required to provide accommodation to passengers traveling with an ESA, upon review of required ESA documents. You can also check with your state or local government to find out their rules on allowing ESAs in public places. I did find that many doctor’s offices and medical facilities in my area allow patients to bring their ESA with them to appointments, tests, and treatments. Just call and make sure before you bring them along. (See also: 5 Surprising Ways Your Dog Can Save You Money) Are you a candidate? If you are dealing with high levels of stress, anxiety, or depression, and your pet helps alleviate these issues, you may be a candidate for an ESA. If you plan on taking your pet on planes or to medical facilities, make sure your pet is obedient and...

How to Make Sure You Don't Run Out of Money in Retirement

May 26 4:30am Wise Bread
An annuity is a stream of fixed payments that's guaranteed, often for as long as you live. Having an annuity can make retirement more secure, but it's hard to recommend them as investment vehicles, because almost every annuity on the market is a terrible investment. They tend to be sold by salesmen, so they're often loaded with fees. And, because being upfront about the fees would make them hard to sell, these fees are obscure (often outright hidden) and are typically different for every product, making it especially hard to comparison shop. (See also: Should You Get an Annuity?) But my experience these past few years — helping older relatives with their finances, and starting to take the little pension I earned as a software engineer — has given me a new perspective on annuities. Having an annuity is more than just nice: It's wonderful! It's just buying them that's usually terrible. Fortunately, there are a few that are worth buying. You don't hear about them often, because they don't siphon off a big chunk of your investment to pay a salesman, so salesmen don't push them. Why annuities are great It used to be that anyone with a good job retired with an annuity in the form of a pension. This is how I've gotten my recent experience with just how great it is to have an annuity: All my older relatives are now receiving pensions. You never outlive your income The main thing that's great about an annuity is that having one means you're never going to be broke. Even if you overspend and run down your savings, even if the stock market crashes or you make terrible investment decisions and your investment portfolio takes huge losses, you'll still get that monthly check for as long as you live. You don't need to have an annuity to arrange that — you can live off capital in a way that makes it last the rest of your life — but an annuity makes it much easier. They can raise your income The other thing that's great about an annuity is that it can, at least potentially, be more money to live on. See, the only safe way to live off capital is to just spend the income from your investments. But that's not much money (especially these days). If you knew how long you were going to live, you could spend down your capital so that you'd die with just enough money to pay off your last month's bills.

The One Question You Should Ask Before Every Major Purchase

May 26 4:00am Wise Bread
Recently, my husband had to buy a new bathrobe. The old one, which had completely worn out after a decade of wear, was the exact same ridiculous pastel coffee mug robe that Brad Pitt sported ironically in the movie Fight Club. The coffee mug robe cost $188, and had been a gift from me because my husband simply could not bring himself to spend nearly $200 on something he was going to wear around the house on lazy mornings. He loved that intentionally ridiculous robe, but despite my urging him to replace it with the same one from the same boutique, he again balked at spending that kind of money on a bathrobe. No matter how often I pointed out that he'd be spending a little less than $19 a year on daily joy (assuming the replacement robe also lasted 10 years), I could not change his mind.This situation got me wondering, though. How do you decide whether it's worth it to spend $200 on a ridiculous bathrobe, $500 for a phone upgrade, or an additional $5,000 to get the trim package you really want on your new car? Here's the thought process you should go through to figure out if a major purchase is worth it. The big question: Is this an investment or an indulgence? The basic definition of an investment is something that will appreciate in value over time. Buying a house is a common example of an investment purchase. In addition, upgrading your flight to business class so that you can more easily get work done on the plane may be an investment (if you can truly commit to working in flight) since the cost of the upgrade will be more than covered by the money you make while working. But what about investments that appreciate in something other than monetary value? For instance, you might spend money on biweekly massages, which do not appreciate in financial value, but they do keep you pain- and stress-free, which might be worth far more to you than the cost of the massages. That is an investment in your physical and mental well-being, even if you never see a specific financial return. On the other hand, an indulgence is something that simply makes you feel good in the moment. You don't expect an indulgence — like buying your favorite gourmet coffee, driving a sporty car, or purchasing the latest trendy clothes — to appreciate in financial value. There is nothing wrong with spending money on indulge...
