The Friday Five – Rent Back Agreements, Eco-friendly Updates, and Home Owners Insurance

This week USA Today published an interesting article about the fading concept of a “starter home”. Recent trends in real estate are showing that more and more first time homebuyers are purchasing a home and staying put. For those people following suit, this means it’s more important than ever to find the perfect home the first time around.

In a world of everyone looking to “go green” it can be hard to determine which eco friendly projects are worth the time and money and which aren’t. HomeSelfe released an awesome infographic showing what today’s buyers are most interested in when it comes to eco-friendly updates. This way you invest your hard earned dollars in the areas that matter.

Thinking about selling your home but not sure what you’d do if it sells before you’ve bought a new one. Consider a rent-back agreement. This article details it all for you.

Here is a really great article explaining everything a first time homebuyer needs to know about homeowners insurance. It includes topics like how much do you pay, how much coverage do you really need, and how do you pick a provider.

Events for the weekend/upcoming week can be found here and here. Be sure to check out the US Navy Sea Chanters’ performance at CSM!
