Top 10 New Years Resolutions for Homeowners in 2008

This is a great article from RISMedia about things every homeowner should focus on this year. One of the best things you should be focusing on right now is to lower your debt, pay off bills, eliminate unnecessary expenses, and grow your equity in your home. Of course, these things are easier said than done for all of us, but I hope more homeowners will be making these promises to themselves this year:

  1. I will get my home finances in order
  2. I will stop lending the government money interest free
  3. I won’t let fears of dropping home values, the mortgage market meltdown, and the growing risk of a recession stop me from purchasing a home in 2008.
  4. I will increase my saving and reduce or eliminate high interest loans.
  5. I will review my homeowners and other insurance to make sure I’m adequately protected.
  6. I will reduce my home’s energy consumption.
  7. Whenever appropriate I will take advantage of new options to reduce real estate services costs when I buy or sell a home. (Wait a minute… how about being sure you are getting a FULL SERVICE agency that actually is worth the commission!)
  8. I will look for economical ways to increase the value and livability of my home.
  9. In the face of growing signs of recession, I will be cautious in 2008.
  10. I will engage in the political process to influence issues of economic impact to me and my home.
