Buying, selling, looking to rent all comes with its major stressors … but there’s something about the actual act of moving that really brings about a whole new sense of unpleasant work to be had. If you think about it, there is literally nothing else in life that causes us to literally pack up everything we own and relocate where we live our life from.

The good news is, as hard as moving is, being organized and taking specific steps with planning will make the move a whole lot less stressful. Here are some of our favorite tips:

With rates at incredible lows, Americans across the country are refinancing their mortgage. But if you have poor credit, you may be wondering if it's possible. 

Refinancing with a low credit score isn't the ideal position, but it is possible. Here's everything you need to know about refinancing into a lower rate mortgage while having bad credit. 

But first, why bother refinancing in the first place? 

Refinancing saves you money because you end up paying less interest over the life of the loan. That can also translate to lower monthly payment, but if nothing else, it means that more of your payment will go to the principal than the lender. 

A handsome prospect for anyone! But for those with less-than-ideal credit, refinancing at a fair

Most homes have an element that could use some improvement before putting on the market. Perhaps the wood flooring is looking scratched and dingey. Or the tub and shower are showing their years. Or maybe the shingled roof is making your home look outdated. 

No matter what needs improving, when it comes to selling your home, there's a decision to be made: will you invest in upgrading and repairs, or will you sell as is?

 

Both of these scenarios have their perks, so the deciding can be tough. One the one hand, investing in remodeling and renovation can boost your home's value so you'll likely recoup the money and gain some extra. 

On the other hand, value-minded shoppers aren't afraid of a fixer-upper and may even prefer a home that they

Refinancing is one of the ways that many try to avoid foreclosure. But what you may not know
