Study shows what
from their roofs
Replacing your roof? Insights from a new
nationwide survey may help you better understand
the many facets involved in this important
The “2021 Roof Purchasing Study” conducted
by Signet Research Inc. for DaVinci Roofscapes,
shows that consumers want durable
roofs. Nearly 85 percent of those surveyed indicate
that durability has a lot of influence in the
type of roof they would purchase. Longevity of
a roofing product was the second highest influencer,
followed by resistance to severe weather.
MOTHER NATURE MATCH-UP
Study results indicate that severe weather
damage is the most likely event to prompt
homeowners to replace their current roofs, followed
by age of their existing roof. When it does
become necessary to replace the roof, 32 percent
of respondents indicate they are “very likely” or
“likely” to consider a faux roofing product, such
as composite slate or shake materials, which

Hate bugs? Here’s how to remove
the ick-factor from your home
Hate bugs? You’re not alone. Nearly
seven in 10 Americans can’t sleep
if they know there’s an insect in the
room, according to a recent survey
conducted by OnePoll for Zevo. The
same poll also found that two in
three Americans would give up a
month’s pay to not deal with bugs!
Science says your visceral reaction
is actually quite rational. According
to researchers at the University of
California, Davis, those creepy-crawly
feelings you may experience upon
seeing a bug is simply nature’s way
of helping you avoid pathogens and
The good news? Insect experts say
that there are steps you can take to
protect your home turf from disgusting
bugs and other pests.
“While you should not lose your
healthy distaste for bugs, you can
take steps to keep them out of your
home,” says Daniel Perry, entomologist
at Procter & Gamble.
Here are a few ways to help keep
America’s top three hated bugs:
cockroaches, spiders and ants, along
with a host of other common insects,
out of your home.
1. Guard doors and windows: Keep
doors and windows sealed when
they’re not in use. If you love a fresh
breeze, be sure that your screen
doors and windows are in tip top
shape and contain no holes. Don’t
have a screen door? Consider quickly
installing a mesh door screen over
your front door or patio door that
seals up the middle with a magnet.
This is a good choice for renters and
others unable to make more intensive
2. Seal holes: Use an afternoon to
caulk small cracks in your home’s
foundation and siding. This is a
quick, easy and affordable way to
seal these common entry points for
3. Remove their food source: Bugs
need a food source to survive, so keep
your home clean. In the kitchen, seal
your trash bin and remove its contents
regularly, wipe down surfaces
— especially after spills, and sweep
up those crumbs. A cockroach can
survive months on a single crumb
of food! Be sure to regularly vacuum
furniture, rugs and carpets in any
room where you eat.
4. Blast bugs: Bugs will find their
way into your home no matter how
hard you try to keep them out. Because
a small bug problem can spread
quickly, it’s important to be ready

to meet them head-on. Zevo sprays,
including the brand’s Multi-Insect
Killer Spray, are powered by essential
oils. Zevo’s BioSelective Technology
was developed by experts to
be targeted to bugs’ unique biology,
plus Zevo is safe for use around people
and pets when used as directed.

If you’re tired of being grossed
out in your own home, it’s time to
take charge. Not only can you help
prevent insects from invading your
home, you can swing into action at
the first sign of bugs to make sure it
doesn’t become a bigger problem for
you and your family later.

Protect your feet when tackling
home improvement projects
Did you know many home and yard
projects contain hidden dangers for
your feet? The good news though, according
to foot and ankle surgeons,
is most injuries are avoidable if you
take appropriate precautions.
Amber Shane, DPM, FACFAS, an
Orlando-area foot and ankle surgeon
and Fellow Member of the American
College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons,
sees many patients coming in with
foot and ankle injuries from home
improvement projects gone wrong.
“Feet may be the last thing people
think about while working on home
improvement projects, but we see so
many different types of foot and ankle
injuries in our office — many of which
can be avoided with proper shoe wear
and extra caution,” Dr. Shane says.
Dr. Shane advises to avoid working
in bare feet or in sandals when
engaging in any projects around the
house, even the projects that seem
harmless such as power washing
decks or using a ladder.
According to Dr. Shane, if you’re not
paying close attention while power
washing, and not keeping a firm grip
on the machine, the stream from the
washer can hit your feet instead of
your intended object. “The pressure
from a heavy-duty power washer is
strong enough to take off the superficial
layer of skin, especially on the
toes. So, it’s best to wear fully closedtoed
shoes to help avoid injury or
damage to the skin,” she says.
Dr. Shane recommends wearing
a sturdy, supportive shoe with good
treads when doing roofing work or
projects that require climbing up
and down a ladder. “Sturdy shoes
will provide proper traction to keep
a good grip and prevent any slipping.
Repeated climbing on ladders without
good support can lead to injuries,
including stress fractures and neuromas
or nerve compressions,” she says.
When working on wood surfaces
such as decks or flooring, it’s best to
wear closed-toe shoes to save your
feet from slivers or puncture wounds
from nails or wood splinters. Dr.
Shane suggests, “To help protect your
feet from injury, avoid wearing flip
flops or soft-soled shoes, such as popular
foam-type clogs, while in a construction
zone with exposed wood.”
If an injury does occur, Dr. Shane
recommends contacting a foot and
ankle surgeon near you to have the
injury properly examined and treated,
or for serious injuries, visiting
the closest emergency room. To find
a foot and ankle surgeon in your
area and for more healthy feet tips,
visit the American College of Foot
and Ankle Surgeons’ patient education
website at FootHealthFacts.org.
DIY projects can bring tremendous
joy and satisfaction to homeowners.
At the same time, they are associated
with certain risks. Use proper
care and precaution to keep your feet
safe and injury-free.

Reduce your energy bills
this fall with these tips
The updates you make in fall can
prepare your home for the long winter
months ahead, helping you stay
more comfortable all season while
reducing your energy bills and other
expenditures. Here are some home
improvements to consider, as well
as tips and insights for making the
most of these upgrades:
• Select insulated siding: Did you
know that most wall insulation is
placed only between the studs? Since
wall studs represent up to 25 percent
of the wall surface of an average home,
that’s like having one side of your home
with no insulation at all! Check out siding
that provides continuous insulation,
such as CedarMAX insulated vinyl siding
from ProVia, which is not only one
of the most energy-efficient exterior
claddings on the market, but offers enhanced
curb appeal and durability.
• Improve windows and sliding
glass doors: New windows can make
a substantial impact on your overall
energy efficiency, if you select wisely.
To identify the most energy-efficient
windows for your home, refer
to the Environmental Protection
Agency’s (EPA) climate zone map,
which divides the country into four
regions. For each region, the agency
provides recommended values for
the two major characteristics that
affect the energy efficiency of vinyl
windows: the U-Factor (which measures
the window’s insulating value)
and the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient
(which represents the amount
of heat from the sun that passes
through the glass). Learn the specs
of any windows you’re interested in
before making a purchase to ensure
they’re a good fit for your region.
Wherever you live, make sure the
windows and sliding patio doors
have been independently tested to
meet strict EPA energy efficiency
standards, and check to see that the
windows are ENERGY STAR Certified.
The ecoLite, Aspect, Endure
and Aeris lines from ProVia all offer
comfort and energy efficiency,
as well as optional upgrades that
can help make an additional dent
in your energy bill or add aesthetic
appeal. Some lines come standard
with ComforTech Warm Edge Glazing,
a high-tech glass package that
measurably improves thermal performance
for less heat loss, warmer
glass temperatures and reduced interior
condensation. Finally, be sure
any new products are delivering
their full value with a proper installation
that eliminates drafts.
• Seek further savings: Did you
know that by installing energy efficient
products, you may be eligible to
receive an energy tax credit? When
PHOTO | STATEPOINT
purchasing products for your home,
consider shopping with companies
that are clear about the status of
their products, as well as provide
needed documentation certifying
• Pass it on: Environmental stewardship
is a valuable lesson to impart
to the next generation. While
you make energy-saving updates to
your home, consider checking out
free resources that can help your
children understand why this matters.
For example, the “Sammy the
Star” ENERGY STAR Educational
Program, found at provia.com/energy-star,
teaches children about the
importance of saving energy.
Energy savings and environmental
protection go hand-in-hand. This
fall, consider home upgrades that

Is your HVAC system ready
for cool weather?
As you enjoy mild autumn weather,
take time to ensure your home
is equipped to handle the chilly
months ahead. Following these steps
will mean a more comfortable, energy-efficient
• Clean your air filters monthly.
Dirty filters make HVAC equipment
work harder and cause more wear
and tear on your system. They also
increase your energy bill and reduce
indoor air quality.
• Compare the Annual Fuel Utilization
Efficiency of your heating system
with newer models. If it’s below
13, you may want to consider a new,
more efficient system. Remember,
the higher the rating, the less wasted
energy for a reduced carbon footprint.
Be sure to choose equipment
bearing the ENERGY STAR logo.
High-efficiency systems reduce your
impact on the environment and can
also save you money. You may also
be eligible for a Federal Tax Credit if
you select a qualifying model.
• Use a humidifier during colder
months. It not only adds moisture to
your home, it can actually make it
feel warmer. In turn, you’ll be more
apt to lower your thermostat, saving
money and consuming less energy.
• Check and maintain your insulation.
Improperly insulated walls,
floors, attics, basements and crawlspaces
drain away heat and can also
lead to moisture imbalance. Adding
weather stripping and caulk around
windows and doors can also go a long
way to improving your home’s insulation.
• Turn down your thermostat.
Keeping your thermostat five degrees
cooler can lower your heating
bills without affecting your home’s
comfort. Install a programmable
thermostat to regulate temperatures.
• Clean the furnace area. Don’t
keep chemicals or cleaning products
near your heater, and don’t
store anything next to it that could
impede ventilation. Keep vents and
returns free of obstructions. Don’t
lay carpet over vents, place furniture
over or in front of them, or obstruct
the flow of air.
• Have a technician give your
HVAC system a pre-season tune-up
so that everything is running efficiently
before temperatures plummet.
Even the most efficient system
can suffer if it’s not properly maintained.
Just be sure your HVAC
equipment is installed and serviced
by a North American Technician

technician, as they have demonstrated
their knowledge of today’s
increasingly sophisticated heating
and cooling systems by passing a
nationally recognized test developed
and supported by all segments of the
industry. Working with a NATE-certified
technician translates to a longer
life for your HVAC equipment,
increased energy efficiency and fewer
callbacks and warranty returns.

Study shows what homeowners want from their roofs
typically stands up to severe weather
and is known for its longevity.
“Mother Nature pounds roofs on a
regular basis,” says Mark Pagel, general
manager of DaVinci Roofscapes.
“Homeowners recognize that hail,
high winds and severe weather can
take their toll on roofs. They’re reacting
by seeking out roofing materials
that will stand up to strong weather
conditions. While price is an important
consideration, respondents of the survey
are focused more on value. They’re
interested in investing in durable roofing
materials, like synthetic slate and
shake tiles, which are guaranteed to
hold up to severe weather conditions.”
When it comes time to select a
specific roofing brand, 61 percent of
homeowners are looking for a quality
product. To find that roofing brand, 57
percent are relying on their contractor
for recommendations, which is more
than they do on family and friends (35
percent), or even their own personal
experiences with a brand (37 percent).
“Homeowners understand they
may choose a new roof only once
or twice in their lives,” says Pagel.
“They also understand that contractors
make these decisions many
times a year for their projects. The
research indicates homeowners respect
and value the recommendation
of contractors who work regularly
with different building products.”
A national survey sponsored by Da-
Vinci Roofscapes in 2011 provides insights
into changes in consumer attitudes
toward their homes in the span
of the last decade. In a comparison of
the 2011 Color Study (conducted by
Harris Research) and the 2021 Roof
Purchasing Study, results show:
• A strong growth in homeowners
valuing the curb appeal of their personal
properties in the past decade (78 percent
viewing it as “extremely” or “very
important” in 2011 as compared to 88
percent with similar feelings in 2021).
• An increase in homeowners seeing
their home exterior as a reflection
of their personality (71 percent
in 2011; 85 percent in 2021).
• While durability remains the biggest
influencer of a roofing purchase,
the second-most popular influencer has
changed dramatically. In 2011, longevity
was the second response. In 2021,
that has changed to pricing, up from
the number eight position 10 years ago.
• Severe weather damage remains
the number one reason for replacing
a roof. However, is 2011, 65 percent
said severe weather would prompt
a new roof purchase (with 9 percent
reporting current roof damage from
a weather-related event), compared
to 57 percent in 2021 (with 32 percent
reporting a currently damaged
roof from severe weather).
• While 23 percent of homeowners
reported replacing their roof due to
old age in 2011, 44 percent (almost
double) said old age was the reason
to replace a roof in the 2021 study.
• Color preference has remained
consistent. Black is still the most
popular roof color, followed by gray,
brown and beige/tan.

Bottom line? A new roof can be a
good, solid investment, especially
when your roof is able to withstand
the elements over the years and look
great while doing it.

With climate change spurring an
uptick in extreme weather events
in recent years, homeowners today
know that to keep their property —
and the people in it — best protected,
the siding they select matters.
“Not only will the right materials
better insulate against extreme
temperatures, but durable materials
will also help guard against wicked
weather and storms,” says Jon Lapp,
siding project manager, ProVia. “And
of course, siding has a major impact
on the look of your home exterior.”
The good news is that you don’t
need to sacrifice curb appeal in the
pursuit of high-quality siding. Here’s
what to know when making this important
• Materials: Your choice of materials
can impact how you feel about your
house for years to come. To that end,
What to know when
updating your home’s siding
consider the most popular home siding
material, which, according to the
U.S. Census Bureau’s Survey of Construction,
is vinyl siding. First introduced
in the 1960s, its popularity is no
accident. Thanks to its low cost, ease
of installation, minimal maintenance
and long-term beauty and durability,
it’s a favorite choice among installers
and homeowners. Just be sure that
the siding you select is formulated
with weather- and heat-resistant materials,
as well as UV blockers to protect
against color fade.
• Insulation: Did you know that
most wall insulation is placed only
between the studs? Since wall studs
represent up to 25 percent of the
wall surface of an average home,
that’s like having one entire wall
with no insulation at all. Insulated
siding blankets your home, providing
continuous insulation between
PHOTO | STATEPOINT
the studs and exterior wall of your
home. Look for insulated siding options
that are tested and proven to
increase the R-value (a measure of
a material’s resistance to heat flow)
of an exterior wall. One such option
is CedarMAX insulated vinyl siding
from ProVia. One of the most energy-efficient
exterior claddings on the
market, it can help reduce your energy
bills. It’s also built with a strong,
rigid foam backing that can bridge
the subtle bows and dips present on
almost every wall. This will make
for longer, straighter panels for increased
curb appeal, as well as greater
impact resistance against rain,
hail and contact with your child’s
fastball. And because it resists fading,
chalking, cracking, peeling and
thermal expansion and contraction,
it will have a longer, more environmentally-sustainable
• Color: Color and beauty are huge
factors in your home improvement
decision. To get it right, start by using
the color selection tools on your manufacturer’s
website. It’s important to
know that the monitor settings on
your device can impact the way the
color displays, so contact the dealer
to see real color samples made from
its actual products before making
a final decision. Choose from classic
whites, earth tones, bright and colorful
shades, or bold, darker hues. Just
be sure your beautiful new siding
contains anti-weathering ingredients
that prevent weather and sun exposure
from causing it to fade.
Additional siding information and
resources can be found by visiting
“Approach this home improvement
project carefully. With the power to
boost your home’s beauty and energy
efficiency, new siding can offer a great
return on investment and protect your
home for years to come,” says Lapp.

Tips to attract hummingbirds to your yard
Do hummingbirds frequently visit
your yard? Would you like them to?
There are some important things to
know in order to protect the safety
and promote the health of these
beautiful, vibrant visitors.
After their breeding season, hummingbirds
migrate south for the
winter. This autumn journey is long
and potentially perilous, requiring
considerable amounts of energy to
complete. Taking steps to make your
property a safe haven will give hummingbirds
an important opportunity
to rest and refuel.
One way you can help hummingbirds
thrive is by stocking your
garden with small native species of
flowers to give wildlife needed nourishment,
as well as cover from predators.
You may want to supplement
this nourishment source with a birdfeeder
too, as hummingbirds need to
eat often and in large amounts relative
to their size. You can make a
homemade nectar with just a few ingredients,
according to the Audubon
Society, or purchase a ready-made
version from the store. When making
a selection, keep in mind that
experts warn that you should stay
away from hummingbird food that
contains red food coloring or dye,
as it could be potentially hazardous
to their health. Another important
thing to know is that nectar does go
bad, so be sure to regularly empty
your feeder of unconsumed nectar
and clean it completely before refilling
When birds are feeding, they are
easily frightened and are apt to take
wild, evasive flight. To avoid this
from happening, position birdfeeders
closer than three feet or farther than
30 feet from windows. Surprisingly,
the safest placement is attached to
the window itself.
Whether you have birdfeeders or
not however, you should also be sure
to apply special decals that reflect
ultraviolent sunlight in order to
make your windows visible to birds
of all kinds. This is because millions
of birds are killed annually in the
United States when colliding with
windows. Those from WindowAlert
have the appearance of frosted glass,
but glow like a stoplight for birds,
so you don’t have to compromise
your own view out your window. The
brand also makes a high-tech liquid
called WindowAlert UV Liquid,
which should be applied between
decals for even greater visibility. To
learn more about window decals for
birds, visit windowalert.com.
“Hummingbirds are not only beautiful,
they are important pollinators
vital to the ecosystem,” says Spencer
Schock, founder of WindowAlert.
“With a few simple steps, you
can make your yard a safe haven
for these wonderful migratory creatures.”

Illuminating ideas for hanging
string lights in your backyard
So, you’ve created the backyard
of your dreams and love everything
about it — except that seeing your
surroundings can sometimes be a
challenge once the sun’s gone down.
As the days grow shorter and we
head into fall, it’s one of the best
times of year to enhance your backyard
life at night.
While hiring someone to install
outdoor lighting can be really expensive
and involved, patio string lights
are a simple, cost-effective solution.
Best of all, you can create a look that
reflects your style using any number
In a recent episode of “Done-In-A-
Weekend Projects” called “Light Up
Your Life,” expert landscape designer
Doug Scott demonstrated how to
hang string lights, as well as discussed
what to consider before, and
while, doing so. Here are his steps
for adding fun, personality and light
to your outdoor living and dining
1. First determine how long your
string lights need to be and how
many strands you’ll need. The only
other materials you’ll need for
this project are appropriate, outdoor-grade
hardware (such as cup
hooks or a similar fastener) and possibly
an extension cord.
2. Next you’ll want to sketch your
design to make sure you capture
what you’re going for and second, to
ensure you’re purchasing the correct
number and lengths of lights and
hooks. For a more relaxed look, you
may want a crisscross or free-form
pattern. For a more uniform look,
you can simply hang lights across
the center or around the perimeter
of the space.
“Regardless, just make sure your
design represents you and how you
want to live outside,” says Scott.
3. When measuring your lights, be
sure to add a few feet on each pass to
allow for slack. One other thing you’ll
want to consider is whether you’ll be
able to make light connections in
discreet places, ideally where they
connect to the wall, post or tree.
“Having a connection in the middle
of a swag won’t be the end of the
world, but you’ll want to minimize
this as much as possible,” says Scott.
4. Install your hooks according to
your plan. Then, hang your lights
with the bulbs removed to decrease
your chances of breaking them.
You’ll also want to make sure that
your first strand reaches an outlet,
or you have an extension cord that
will. Once you’re satisfied with your
PHOTO | STATEPOINT
general look, install one bulb in
each strand to test that everything
is working properly. If all is good, install
the rest of the bulbs, light them
up, then kick back and enjoy.

3 Ways to fuse art and nature in your home
Beyond sprucing up your work
and living environs, there’s certainly
much to love about houseplants,
whether it’s the simple act of taking
care of something or the fact that
some varietals can even improve the
air quality in your home (peace lilies,
we’re looking at you).
However, if you’re like many people
who have done virtually everything
from home this past year, your living
room has turned into a veritable
plant nursery. Rather than add more
plants to your living spaces haphazardly,
consider these easy tips from
LiveTrends, a company that creates
and designs over 500 original living
art product collections each year:
• Befriend color. When it comes
to pots for your greenery, succulent
and shrubs, you may think neutral
is the way to go. Think again. Right
now, it’s all about attention-grabbing
colors, such as the mustard, navy
and wine, which are featured in the
Harvest Votive and Agatha styles
from LiveTrends’ fall 2021 collection.
When you fuse nature with bold
hues, you can easily elevate a houseplant
into art status. Bonus: You
don’t have to shell out serious dough
like you would for framed wall art or
• Add joy. The pandemic accelerated
the plant parent trend and many
found themselves deeply embracing
“biophilia,” or the innate desire
to connect with nature — from the
great indoors that is. To give you a
moment of joy during your day or
even perk up your Zoom background,
look for whimsical and fun plant designs.
• Make holiday swaps. Add vitality
to your holiday home decorating
game by swapping in festive plants
for elements in your regular lineup.
During Halloween for example,
LiveTrends offers designs like the
delightfully ghoulish yogi skeleton
mini plants, a collection of skeleton
figures seated in Sukhasana pose.
During the winter holiday season,
their “Snomann” plants make a cute
and festive addition to your mantel

tips or to view the latest collections,
By fusing nature with art, you can
elevate your houseplant collection
and create truly beautiful living
spaces in your home.

Our favorite housing economist —
yes, we have one of those — is Jenny
Schuetz, a senior fellow at the Brookings
Institution, who publishes a
steady stream of insightful and practical
articles on topics like why getting
a multi-year lease is a good idea
and whom you should blame for high
housing costs (spoiler alert: greedy
people). We caught up with her to ask
our burning questions, which have
been edited and condensed:
Q: Where should I live?
A: Most people still choose where to
live based on where their job is. I encourage
moving to a city where you’re
not just moving there for one job and
one employer. If you turn out to not
love your boss or to lose your job, big
cities offer some insurance because
you can change companies without
having to pick up your entire life and
break your social networks to move.
Q: What if I can work from anywhere?
A: An awful lot of employers would
still like you to be within a couple
hours of the metro area. And there’s
still strong value to having informational
interviews over coffee, and
that’s much easier to do where there
are lots of companies you’d want to
work for. Particularly early in your career,
going to a happy hour and getting
your name out there still has value.
Q: Where should my partner and I
A: You need to be located where both
people can find satisfying work. In cities,
both members of a couple are able
to find jobs, and job switch if needed.
Q: You really like cities, huh?
A: Well, the less you are a sort of “typical”
person, the more appeal there is
to being in a place that’s big and diverse.
Though people aren’t moving
to really small places. The trend of
moving away from the biggest cities
Where should I live? 9 questions
with a housing economist
like New York, L.A. and San Francisco
has been going on for almost a decade
now, and a lot of that is driven by cost.
But Denver, Nashville and Austin are
still big metro areas, with more than a
million people, and you’re still going to
find a ton of people who have similar
ages and education.
Q: So if I’m looking for a mate,
should I go to a city?
A: The evidence is pretty strong
that cities play an important role in
marriage markets, particularly for
people who have more years of formal
education. People with graduate
degrees marry people with graduate
degrees, and if you have a law degree
or MBA, the chance of finding someone
who’s in the age, gender and education
categories that you’re looking
for is going to be better in a city
where there are lots of people who
meet those general qualifications.
Q: Wouldn’t online dating make it
easier to live anywhere?
A: It’s still helpful in a relationship
to be geographically in the same

Cities such as Austin, Texas, pictured here, provide flexibility to
change jobs and meet partners and friends.
place as the person you’re dating,
which is just easier in a large city. So
it’s still going to play a role.
Q: Does this advice apply to
A: The research is mostly done on
opposite sex couples, but we do know
that large cities over time have been
more welcoming and friendly for
gay people and have more of a dating
scene. Cities tend to draw people
who are looking for a very specific
kind of work or social connections.
Q: Do all these trends apply to
A: The same logic applies. Early
in their lives, people are looking for
friends and companionship and people
with shared interests. There are big
populations in which to find friends
who do the same kinds of things you
do, and a wide diversity of activities —
you can’t have a major league baseball
team without enough people to fill the
stadium, right? So that helps with the

If you’re trying to break into the
housing market right now, you may
find that your down payment fund isn’t
going as far as you thought it would.
Record-breaking rises in home prices
mean the targets you set to save, say,
20 percent of your expected home purchase
price may no longer cut it.
Here’s what you need to know
about what’s going on in the housing
market and what your options are
for how to proceed.
Home prices are rising faster than
your down payment fund: What to do
WHY HOME PRICES
ARE LIKELY RISING
FASTER THAN YOUR
DOWN PAYMENT SAVINGS
It all comes down to a few factors:
limited housing supply and a huge
number of motivated buyers are putting
pressure on housing prices. Low
mortgage rates mean most buyers
can afford to borrow more than they
otherwise would, which is turning up
the pressure even more, and inflation
is pushing buying costs up for pretty
much everything across the board.
Sellers are rejoicing, but for buyers
(low mortgage rates aside) it can be
tough terrain to navigate.
“This last year has been brutal,
particularly for the first-time homebuyer
market,” says Matt Woods,
co-founder and CEO of SOLD.com.
Most experts agree that the pandemic
has led to a tough market
for buyers, but there are signs that
things may finally be cooling off. At
any rate, this nearly straight up trajectory
for home prices seems fairly

account designated for the purpose.
on earth will my four kids ever be
homeowners if this is the conundrum
they’re dealing with?” Woods says.
What you can do if your down payment
savings aren’t keeping up
There are essentially three ways
you can respond if your dream home
— or even a barely adequate home
— is out of reach.
1. Wait out the home sale market,
beef up your down payment
Probably the easiest option — because
it’s essentially passive — is to
just wait for the market to cool down
more. Doing that can give you the opportunity
to boost your savings, and
you may even see home prices come
down a little in your area, which
means your funds will go farther.
Keep in mind, there are no absolute
guarantees in real estate because
market conditions are always
changing, but if you can’t afford to
buy now, it’s probably not a good
time to dive in.
“The biggest thing to start with is
just to make the decision on whether
now is the right decision in terms of
buying the home,” says Robert Heck,
vice president of mortgage at Morty. “If
you have flexibility and time, the options
there are a bit more widespread.”
Focus your affordability calculations
on your monthly expenses, not necessarily
the overall sale price, he says.
Bankrate’s “how much house can I
afford?” calculator can help you get
“This home appreciation phase is
waning,” Woods added. If you choose
to wait it out you can use the time to
invest money in higher-yield — and,
admittedly, higher risk — funds to
boost your savings more quickly.
“Putting money under your mattress
isn’t going to help,” he says. “If
you’re parking it in the safest place,
you can count on it not helping and
not growing. If you’re leveraging the
investment opportunities that are
out there, the market’s been kind.”
