  • Halloween Safety Tips

    October 19, 2021

    1. Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Look left, right, and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.
    2. Put electronic devices down, keep head up and walk, don't run, across the street.
    3. Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
    4. Always walk on sidewalks or paths. If no sidewalk is available walk facing traffic.
    5. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up.
    6. Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape.
    7. Choose face paint and makeup instead of masks which can block a child's vision.
    8. Carry flashlights or glow sticks to help children see and be seen by drivers.

    Davis County Realtors wishes all a Safe and Fun Halloween!

    Our founding fathers also liked fireworks! Read this newspaper clipping from 1777!

     July 18, 1777 issue of the Virginia Gazette describes the July 4 celebration in Philadelphia:

    "The evening was closed with the ringing of bells, and at night there was a grand exhibition of fireworks, which began and concluded with thirteen rockets on the commons, and the city was beautifully illuminated. Every thing was conducted with the greatest order and decorum, and the face of joy and gladness was universal."

    Celebrating the 4th of July, Independence Day

    Davis County Realtors always wishes our family and friends to know the face of joy and gladness!!

    Happy 4th!

  • Can I Afford a House Payment?

    February 25, 2020

    How much house can you afford?

    Evaluate your current monthly cash flow, decide just how big of a house payment you can swing. Realize it will include not just principal and interest but also property taxes and insurance. One rule of thumb suggests that your housing expense should stay between 25% to 36% of your take-home pay. So if your family brings home $5,000 per month after taxes, your mortgage payment, including taxes and insurance, should be between $1,250 and $1,800. Keep in mind, just because you can theoretically afford a higher house payment doesn't mean you should. Consider, too, that the size of your house will impact your bottom line well beyond your payment. For example, more rooms mean more furniture, more upkeep and higher heating and cooling costs. This is a great article from USAA.COM, if your thinking of buying a home go to their website and read the complete article. Read More
