ARE YOU PAYING TOO MUCH IN PROPERTY TAXES ON YOUR HOME?

You may well be, simply because your house was valued too high by the tax assessor. Yet at the same time, you could mistakenly believe your home carries too low a valuation. Sound impossible? Here's how it works.

Article

HOW CAN YOU MAKE THE BEST MORTGAGE DEAL?

The larger your down payment, the less your mortgage cost over the years. Suppose you get a 5½ per cent, 20-year loan for $15,000. In 20 years, you'd pay back $24,763-- or $9,763 in interest. If instead you pay down $5,000, reducing the loan to $10,000, it would cost you $16,500 in 20 years-- or $3,263 less interest than the $15,000 loan.

WHICH RETIREMENT ANNUITY IS BEST FOR YOU?

Basically, you have your choice of three types of annuity programs. One guarantees a life income only to you. The second guarantees a life income to you and your wife. The third, while providing a life income to you as "annuitant," also guarantees to return a specified amount of money over a specified period even if you are not alive to collect it.

FLATIRONS AND BOOTJACKS

Editors' Note: This article is the first of a series on what the author, John Mebane, calls "contemporary collectibles." These are old items that, in the technical sense, are not antiques. Rather, they're items that have historical interest and artistic or decorative value. In most cases, these items are inexpensive enough that collectors of modest means can acquire them-- and they're easy to locate.

FOUND! SUMMER JOBS FOR TEEN-AGERS

It isn't easy for young people to find summer jobs-- and the problem gets tougher all the time. This summer an avalanche of teen-agers will be unleashed on the job market. Youth, energy, ambition they have in abundance. What they lack, obviously, is experience. It's the old dilemma: "If you don't have experience, you can't get a job-- and if you can't get a job, you can't get experience."

HOW IMPORTANT IS LOW MILEAGE WHEN YOU CHOOSE A USED CAR?

The average car is driven about 9,000 miles a year. It might seem safe to assume, then, that a two-year-old car with only 9,000 miles on it will be a good buy. Usually it will be, but a car of the same age with twice the mileage might very well be the better car for you.

PLANTS THAT BRIGHTEN THE SHADE

Shady spots in your garden need not be a problem.

Some varieties of foliage and flowering plants thrive in shade-- actually prefer it.

HOW SHOULD YOU LIST YOUR HOME WHEN YOU SELL IT?

Exclusive listing wins you preferred attention, but with only one Realtor. Your contract with him assures that you won't make deals with other brokers or try to dodge the commission by selling the house yourself. Once he has that assurance, he'll concentrate effort-- and money-- into selling your home. If an outside broker has a buyer for your home, he must deal through your broker. This is common practice; there is generally an equitable split of the commission between brokers, but at no extra cost to you.
