There are times when you need to change the locks on your Kenai home to protect your family and possessions. It should always be considered when you move into a new Kenai home; when keys are lost, stolen or unreturned; or a cleaning or other service provider hasn’t returned the key.
Replacing the lockset would give you a totally new mechanism that should work better and if you go back with the same manufacturer, you’ll probably avoid any carpentry. You can order the locks online and have them work with the same key at no extra charge.
Another alternative is to have a locksmith rekey them. The locksmith can easily make all of the locks work with the same key. Compare the cost and decide which would be a better expenditure.
While you’re considering your security, a key safe might be a very convenient addition. Most makers say that it is much easier to break into a home than a key safe. The cost is reasonable and you can attach it to your exterior wall. Generally, they’re combination locks that would allow you access if you or another family member forgot their key. It’s also convenient to give a house keeper the combination and can be easily changed if necessary.
The Christmas countdown has started with just a week to prepare. Presents are stashed away awaiting paper and bows. Your Kenai home is decorated and lights are up (never mind you didn’t take them down last year). It is time to enjoy time with family and friends.
As warm as our holiday spirits have been this winter, it has been really cold which puts extra stress on heating systems. Many heating systems are failing. Others are leaking carbon monoxide into homes due to back drafts. The danger can be added to by burning of wood stoves and fireplaces for heat, candles for pleasure, and lots of extra paper and boxes lying around.
Be aware and be safe: check to make sure your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarms are working.
Team Feeken wishes your holidays be filled with only happiness and joy.

A relatively small investment in a rental home can control a good home that will easily rent, generate positive cash flows and pay for itself. The borrowed funds create leverage that earn a return on the total value of the home and not just the amount of cash you have invested.
The strategy is simple. Find a slightly below average priced home that will rent well. It will appeal to a larger group of people while it’s rented and when it’s ready to be sold.
Rent the home and maintain its condition over the years. As the loan amortizes and the value increases, the equity will grow. When your student is ready to start college, you’ll actually have several options.
You can sell the property; pay the tax on the gain at the reduced capital gains rate and fund the education. Another option would be to refinance and take the proceeds to pay for the tuition. This would allow you to continue to own the asset but would free your equity and under current tax laws is a non-taxable event.
Regardless of whether you’re trying to plan for your children’s education or your own retirement, rental property offers many solid investment opportunities. Contact me if you want more information.
