Recalled! What to Do When You Receive a Recall Notice On an Appliance

How the New Tax Law Impacts Homeowners’ 2018 Taxes

Though the new tax law made sweeping changes in the federal tax code, its impact on homeowners is relatively minor. Middle-class homeowners will probably do as well or better under the new law than the old one unless they have a lot of mortgage debt or live in a state with high property taxes.

Thousands of homeowners are accustomed to deducting the interest they’ve paid on their mortgage and the property taxes they’ve paid to state and local governments during the year. These two deductions — mortgage interest and property taxes — made it into the final bill that was passed, but they were changed significantly. Understanding how they have changed will have an [...]

Most Popular Home Styles in the Southern US

Everyone wants to find their perfect home. Many homebuyers know exactly what they want their home to look like, down to exterior and interior design details. Across the U.S., home styles become trends due to their popularity, geographic location, and other factors specific to an area. For instance, in somewhere that’s prone to flooding like New Orleans, you won’t typically find a lot of low-lying, ranch-style homes – this isn’t to say that they don’t exist in the Crescent City, but geographically speaking, it’s unrealistic. You may not know all the details of the effects that geography can have on a home’s design, but for that reason, [...]

Things You Should Know Before Buying an Extension Cord

We all have at least one extension cord, but is it the right one, or even the best one, for what you need it for? To the average consumer, an extension cord is an extension cord. Most of us don’t understand the differences in things like wire gauge (size) or environment (indoor or outdoor or both), or purpose (extended use for a power tool or other device that will be left on for long periods of time, or for short-term use such as running a vacuum cleaner, or shop-vac). Another thing consumers fail to realize is that regardless of the gauge or rating of the cord, an extension cord is always a temporary solution.
