As the prices of homes in Breckenridge begin to rise so has the net worth of most households in the country. SO – don’t wait to buy your Breckenridge home. Every quarter the Federal Reserve releases its flow of funds survey, a report measuring the net worth of households. The report includes a “balance sheet” of assets such as real estate, financial as-sets, bank accounts, as well as outstanding debt. The net worth of U.S. households and nonprof-it organizations rose 2.6% or about $1.9 trillion in the third-quarter to a record of $77.3 trillion, making it the highest on record according to the Federal Reserve. Rising home prices in ad-dition to an increase in the equity markets this past year helped propel household net worth. People seem to be feeling more confident and real estate is a large portion of their net worth. Make sure you take the opportunity to purchase Breckenridge real estate before the prices really start going up.

Some economists that follow consumer behav-ior believe that increases in wealth could make consumers feel more comfortable spending their money, thus contributing to economic growth. Real estate makes up the single largest compo-nent of household wealth, representing 30%. Cor-porate equities (individual stocks) make up 15% of net worth. The components making up house-hold wealth fluctuate in value and are affected by different factors, including monetary and fis-cal policy. All in all, a rise in the overall value of these assets is of benefit to economic well-being.

If you’re going to be decorating your Breckenridge home for the holidays = read this first.
Christmas Light Tips to Save Time, Money, and (Possibly) Your Life
By: Lisa Kaplan Gordon
Here’s how to light up your Christmas light display safely and economically.

1. Safety first. Emergency rooms are filled with home owners who lose fights with their holiday lights and fall off ladders or suffer electric shocks. To avoid the holiday black and blues, never hang lights solo; instead, work with a partner who holds the ladder. Also, avoid climbing on roofs after rain or snow.

2. Unpack carefully. Lights break and glass cuts. So unpack your lights gingerly, looking for and replacing broken bulbs along the way.

3. Extension cords are your friends. Splurge on heavy-duty extension cords that are UL-listed for outdoor use. To avoid overloading, only link five strings of lights together before plugging into an extension cord.

4. LEDs cost less to light. LED Christmas lights use roughly 70% to 90% less energy and last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. You can safely connect many more LED light strings than incandescents. Downside: Some think they don’t burn as brightly as incandescent bulbs.

5. Solar lights cost nothing to run. Solar Christmas lights are roughly four times more expensive to buy than LEDs, but they cost zero to run. They’re a bright-burning, green alternative. Downside: If there’s no sun during the day, there’s no light at night. The jury’s also still out on how long they last; they’re too new on the market for results.
Whether your home is in Breckenridge or some other part of Summit County or any where in the world -be sure to follow these safety tips and make it a fun Christmas season.

Are you a self employed person and looking to purchase a home in Breckenridge? Don’t wait too long to come look at the Breckenridge homes for sale because things are about to change for you and your potential to purchase a home here in Breckenridge. Please beware that there are some new mortgage rule changes coming in 2014 that will effect you and others like you more than any one else. Self employed borrowers will most likely be impacted by the QM rules: self-employed borrowers. These borrowers already are heavily scrutinized and find it more difficult to obtain a mortgage because they must prove their income based on tax returns and profit-and-loss statements, rather than standard paystubs and W2 forms. The “ability-to-repay” feature of QM rules requires all borrowers to prove they have the cash flow to make payments on their mortgage. Self-employed borrowers often have fluctuating income and rely on cash reserves to pay bills in-between payments, but the emphasis on cash flow can make it harder for lenders to approve a loan even for someone with significant funds in the bank.
