Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday is Saturday, November 26, 2022. It’s time to think about gift giving and all the wonderful parts of spoiling the ones you love! As you prepare, consider shopping small on this year’s Small Business Saturday. Coined by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday is, “a day dedicated to supporting small businesses and communities across the country.” When you support a small business, you invest directly back into the community. “Everytime you purchase a cup of coffee at your local coffee shop or you support a local artist by purchasing a piece of artwork, you’re shopping small.” It’s a small motion with huge impact. Fortunately, Greater Lafayette, IN is a great, supportive space with an amazing small business culture.

3 Mortgage Tips to Fight the Impact of Inflation

3 Mortgage Tips to Fight the Impact of Inflation

Inflation: Economics- a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money. Inflation effects everyone in one way or another. The Romanski Group is here to help lessen that impact in any way we can. Fortunately, there are steps you can take toward lightening the overall load, and a great place to begin is paying off your mortgage faster. Payments toward your loan’s principal can drastically cut months and even years off the tail end of your loan. Check out these long-run-minded ways to reduce your monthly expenses by taking seemingly small steps now! Learn more about your Mortgage Before jumping in, let’s just take some time to simply dissect the different pieces of your mortgage. Experian gives great insight breaking down the details of your home loan by stating: “Principal on a loan is the original amount you agreed to pay back. Over time, the principal balance goes down as you make payments. But because of the interest you also pay on a loan, only a portion of your recurring payments goes toward paying down the principal. The principal balance helps determine how much interest you owe with each of your monthly payments, so paying down your principal can help you save money on interest charges.” 3 Mortgage Tips to Fight Inflation Make an extra mortgage payment each year. Just one extra mortgage payment toward the principal amount can shave years off the tail end of your loan! Such a small step that makes a huge impact on your life! Apply any extra or unexpected income toward the principal of your loan. Do you have an unexpected...
