Home Styling | How to “Undecorate”
As I was packing away decorations after the holidays it occurred to me how similar the task is to home styling. It’s what I like to call “undecorating”.

A homestead exemption helps you save on taxes on your primary residence. An exemption help removes part of the value of your property from taxation and lowers your property tax bills.
You may apply for homestead exemptions if you own, reside and claim the property as you primary residence. There are also some income and age related exemptions for which you may qualify. You will want to file before April 1st of this year in order to take advantage of the tax break this year. Once granted, the homestead exemption is automatically renewed each year as long as your status remains the same.

With even the youngest boomers reaching their mid-50s by 2020, demand for senior housing is skyrocketing. Unlike in previous generations, today’s seniors aren’t necessarily destined to live out their Golden Years with adult children.
There are numerous options for aging adults who wish to remain independent, even when dealing with age-related issues such as mobility restrictions. Here are six equity-building ideas for seniors who want to protect their investment and personal space.
Condominiums are similar to apartment homes in that they are multi-housing units and often come with community amenities, such as a recreational area, clubhouse, and gated entry.
