Homes for Sale In Clifton Park, Josh Gonzalez a Local Real Estate Agent.  Avoid Home Equity Loan and Refinancing Scams. Home equity loan and refinancing scams can cost you more than money-these scams can cost you your house. Scammers will often try to charge you for services they'll never actually perform. They may even use your personal information to commit identity theft. Image: Plattform/Getty Images Refinancing a mortgage to a lower interest rate can make sense for some homeowners. So too can taking out a home equity loan against the value you've built up, perhaps to finance a kitchen remodel or pay Junior's college tuition. What doesn't make sense is losing your home because you fall for home equity loan and refinancing scams such as loan flipping and equity stripping. Although sc...

Clifton Park Homes for Sale, Local Real Estate Agent.  States Offer Cash Rebates for Clunker Appliances. Buying a new Energy Star appliance can lower your utility bills and perhaps even earn a cash rebate from your state. If you replace an old washing machine with a new Energy Star model, you could save as much as $135 per year--plus a rebate from the government. Image: Corbis Photography/Veer There's another reason besides saving on utility bills to replace your clunker appliances with energy-efficient models: a cash rebate.

Clifton Park Homes for Sale, Local Real Estate Agent.  Low-Maintenance Lawn Alternatives: Turf Grasses If you want a yard that demands less time, money, and water, consider low-maintenance grasses in lieu of the traditional lawn. The "No Mow Lawn Mix" is great for yards in the upper Midwest, Northeast, and Pacific Northwest. Image: Prairie Nursery We love our lawns. Turf grass covers nearly 47 million acres in the U.S., according to the Lawn Institute. But that's not very green. The average household dumps 60 gallons of water per day on conventional lawns. Toxic lawn herbicides and pesticides run off into lakes and streams. Gas-powered mowers spew pollution. And then there's the watering, weeding, seeding, sodding, thatching, and mulching commitment.
