Falling for Cyber Scams

You know them, you hate them. They’re emailing you, showing up on your webpages, and even calling your personal phone. Scams are everywhere today, and they are becoming increasingly more clever and easier to fall for — using big names like Amazon and Tufts, saying you’ve won something, or using fear tactics to make you take action.

These cyber criminals dupe trusting individuals into giving up their personal information, money and valuable time, but it can be prevented if people are more cautious. These are conversations we need to be having.

Introducing the Young Adult Protection Plan

 

As parents, we know you want to be able to protect and care for your kids as much as you can, even as they reach adulthood and maybe head off to college. Although your child may be covered by your health insurance, what you might not know is that your legal right to access their medical records ceases when they turn 18. If you want to support them should something bad happen, you have to do something about it.

Luckily, Stiles Law is here as a one-stop-shop to make it easy for you. We’ve put together a promotion that we’re calling the Young Adult Protection Plan, which includes a Healthcare Proxy, HIPAA Release Form and Living Will.

These documents will allow you to have a hand in making medical decisions for your 18+ child, especially in the event that they cannot make them on their own.

Failing to plan means planning to fail. We hate to think of bad things happening to the ones we love, but we appreciate the security and peace of mind we feel when we plan for those circumstances.

Help them learn early that preparing for the future will undoubtedly benefit them in the long run as you send them off into the world.

How to Deal with Offers Over Asking

These days, selling a home can feel like hosting an auction. There are more buyers than sellers, and the inventory is at an all-time low. Although you may receive offers way over asking price, there are some things to pay close attention to in order to ensure a successful transaction.

You should negotiate terms into the offer to protect yourself as a seller.

Most buyers are going to need financing. The loan-to-value ratio scale that lenders use is based on the listing price OR the appraised price—whichever is lower. So the borrower may only be able to secure 80% of a value that doesn’t necessarily match their offer price.

Make sure your buyer understands they may be fully responsible for the difference out of pocket. Be transparent to make sure your closing happens without unfortunate surprises.
