RADON GAS IN A NUTSHELL

Radon gas is a class A carcinogen and is a colorless and odorless gas released into the ground as a result of uranium decay in the soil. This invisible gas can be hazardous to your health when your in an enclosed structure. Most real estate contracts allow you to test for the presence of radon gas and if the radon level is 4.0 pCi/L or above, you may ask for remediation of this condition or decline to purchase the home.
Image title
Prior to 1991, radon fans were permitted within the living space of dwelling. After 1991, all radon fans were required to be outside the living space; either in the attic or on the exterior of home.

The NJ DEP (New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection) has new established guidelines and regulations stating that testing should be done at the lowest livable level of the home. It no longer recommends that a follow up test be done if initial test results are 4.0 pCi/L or higher. The home should be mitigated.

MAP of Radon

Radon remediation systems typically cost $1500 to $2500 and radon is one of the easiest, and least costly environmental hazards to correct.

FIRST TIME HOMEBUYERS A FEW FEDERAL TAX BREAKS YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF

A TAX-SAVING GUIDE FOR FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYERS

Buying your first home? While it’s certainly a rewarding experience, it can also be an overwhelming—and expensive—one. The good news is that the federal government offers several valuable tax breaks once you own a home.

Here are key federal tax breaks we want to make sure you’re aware of:

Mortgage Interest Deduction

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) allows you to deduct the interest you pay on your mortgage. This deduction is generally worth the most in the early years of home ownership because mortgages typically require that you pay more interest in the first years of the loan. Over time, those interest payments gradually decrease as the loan principal payment increases.

The deduction is available on up to $1 million in mortgage debt if you’re married, filing taxes jointly and $500,000 if you’re a single filer. It can only be taken for mortgages on a primary residence or a second home.

You must choose to “itemize” your federal deductions in order to take advantage of the mortgage interest deduction rather than claim the standard deduction. (For tax year 2015, the standard deduction is $6,300 for individual taxpayers and  $12,600 for couples filing jointly.)

Itemizing—which essentially means claiming individual deductions you’re eligible for rather than taking the standard deduction—often makes sense if you are still paying interest on your mortgage. That’s because all the federal tax deductions available to you will likely add up to more than the standard deduction you qualify for.

For example, if you took out a $400,000 mortgage with a 4 percent interest rate, you would pay nearly $16,000 in interest in the first year of that loan, according to the mortgage calculator on Bankrate.com. Those interest payments would gradually decrease over time, but you would still have to pay property taxes and have other costs that qualify for tax deductions.

To claim this deduction, be sure to file away the year-end statement that comes from your lender showing how much mortgage interest you paid that year.

Property Tax Deduction

You can deduct property taxes from your federal taxes too. As with mortgage interest, you must itemize in order to claim this deduction. Your local government should send you a statement each year showing how much property tax you paid that year, so you can claim that amount on your tax form.

Points

If your mortgage requires you to pay points—fees you pay upfront on your mortgage in exchange for a reduced interest rate—you can claim deductions for those, too.

Adding Them All Together

While one single deduction may not add up to more than the standard deduction, multiple itemized deductions can quickly exceed it—especially in the early years of owning a home.

Beyond the deductions available to homeowners, you may also claim itemized deductions for your charitable donations, student-loan interest, expenses of starting or running a business and a host of other things. If you work exclusively from home, you may also qualify for a home office deduction. (Keep in mind that homeowners can also qualify for tax credits by making certain energy-efficiency upgrades to their homes.)

An accountant or tax preparer can help you identify and review all the various deductions you’re eligible for and explain what documentation you need to keep in your tax files.

The strategies mentioned in this document will often have tax and legal consequences; therefore, it is important to bear in mind. Always speak to your accountant or tax advisor.

As the seasons change, so do your home maintenance responsibilities. And now that it’s spring, your roster of chores can quickly fill up.
Rather than getting overwhelmed by a long maintenance list, why not focus on the tasks that matter most? Here’s a short list of some of the most essential springtime checks and repairs that’ll keep your house looking good and functioning at its best.
Clean the gutters. Remove leaves, twigs and other debris, and check gutter components for leaks and to make sure attachments are working correctly. Overlooking this task can mean roofing, siding and wet basement troubles down the road.
Inspect the roof. Look for loose or curling shingles and cracks in chimney flashing (binoculars help if you’re wary of ladders), and check the attic for leaks. Colored grit from shingles in the gutters may be another sign that your roof needs repair.
Fill sidewalk and driveway cracks. Inspect the pavement or asphalt for cracks and other problems. Small fissures can be repaired with liquid filler; use patching products for bigger gaps. Then consider sealing the surface to protect your work.
Prune damaged trees. Broken or dangling branches create hazards around your home. If tree damage is minor and within reach, remove hanging branches and prune broken limbs yourself. A bigger job should be parceled out to a pro.
Service your air conditioner. This is a task that can literally pay off by lowering your cooling bills in the coming months. Maintenance involves cleaning and vacuuming the outdoor unit, checking coolant levels, oiling necessary moving parts and changing the filters inside. If you’re not interested in doing the maintenance yourself, many pros and companies offer annual service plans

Three Essential Habits That Successful Home Buyers Must Embrace
THE THREE ESSENTIAL HABITS THAT SUCCESSFUL HOME BUYERS MUST EMBRACE

Whether you are preparing to purchase your first home or it has been many years since you last walked through the home buying process, you may be starting to feel overwhelmed at the thought of all of the work that lies in front of you. From concerns about finding the right home to the physical act of relocating all of your belongings after the closing, there is certainly a lot to think about.
While each home buying transaction is unique, the most successful home buyers have typically adopted a few behaviors. You may keep these in mind to help you navigate through the process with success.
Keep An Eye On Your Budget
Financial stress when buying a home is common. You may have saved for years to afford your down payment, but there are various expenses that some may have not calculated or planned for.
It is important to leave extra funds available for unexpected expenses, such as paying for the appraisal up-front on the home you have fallen in love with. Likewise, keep a close eye on your budget so that you are aware of your financial situation at all times.
An important strategy to stay on budget is to sit down with your trusted mortgage expert to determine what you can afford before you go look at homes. This may save you from falling in love with a property that is well outside your budget.
Be Available And Flexible
It is imperative that you remain available and flexible as much as possible. Your real estate agent may call you at the last minute with a great new listing that has come on the market, and you may need to be flexible with your schedule to see this property before other buyers do. In addition, you may need to be flexible and accommodating with regards to contract negotiations, working with title company requests and more.
Seek Advice And Knowledge
Buying a home does not have to be stressful, but it also is not something that you do every day. There is a lot for even an experienced home buyer to learn, and you should be prepared to seek advice and to educate yourself along the way. Ask questions as necessary, and use the Internet for additional research.
Home buying is a process, and you may consider taking one day at a time as you proceed through the journey to reach your ultimate goal. A skilled real estate agent parnered with a trusted mortgage advisor can both guide you through the process and can help you to more successfully reach your goal. Reach out to a trustred mortgage expert today to begin looking for your new home by figuring out what you can afford.

The Shongum Lake is a private lake community which offers a resort like community right in your own backyard. Families who live near the lake and whom are members of the lake walk to the lake in the summer for family outings, ice-skate on the lake during the winter, and jog around the picturesque neighborhood in the fall and spring. Friday nights in the summer are Happy Hour where families and friends gather to enjoy the lake, weather, and each other’s company. Parties at the Lake House are always a big hit and parties for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day are huge community events that are truly fun for the whole family
