|I hope you survived the past week’s storms intact, but in case you didn’t or know someone that didn’t, I wanted to pass along some information that hopefully will be helpful.|
|First, please do not use just anyone that comes knocking on your door to fix your damage! Roofers must be registered with the State and general contractors must be licensed. I know roofers, general contractors, auto body repair companies, tree removal companies – just about any damage that was done, I know someone that can fix it. Please ask for my referral list! Friends don’t let friends get storm scammed.|
|Second, to be prepared, Bank of Commerce offers safe deposit boxes for a very nominal fee. If you have documents stored in your home, such as birth certificates, social security cards, legal paperwork, please consider a safe deposit box. Sometimes those documents are difficult if not impossible to replace.|
|Third, if you or someone you know needs repairs to their house and do not have the money for the repairs, here’s how I can help:
1. 203(k) loans – these are an FHA loan that lets the borrower roll in the cost of the repairs into one loan utilizing the equity in the home.
|If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love to help!|
