How To Spot A Home Improvement Scammer

Lately it seems I've seen more instances in social media and on television of unscrupulous remodeling and home repair contractors who are scamming consumers, especially the elderly.

If you are planning to do a major remodeling project or even a smaller repair on your home, it is always best to get a recommendation from a trusted source. 

If you don't have someone locally to ask, then you can always give me a call.  We know lots of reputable people and companies that provide great services of all kinds to homeowners in the Chicagoland area.

What are some of the signs that a home improvement contractor may be a scammer?  Well, they don't usually look like this guy . . . it would be nice if they did :-).

Mortgage Rates Lower For The Sixth Consecutive Week!

How unpredictable have mortgage rates been.  Most economists have been forecasting that rates would rise, little by little, throughout 2016.  However, so far this year they have been dropping, week after week, and are now hovering around the lowest rates of 2015.

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.65% with an average 0.5 point for the week ending February 11, 2016, down from last week when it averaged 3.72 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 3.69%.

The 15-year FRM this week averaged 2.95% with an average 0.5 point, down from 3.01% last week. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 2.99%.
