Live Well
Below your means

Hi Everyone,

Last month we had the back wall of our house insulated. It was a fascinating process. The guys from the insulation company drilled holes like this one in our wall between each stud upstairs and downstairs. Then they filled our wall with shredded, recycled newspaper that had been treated to be fire and water proof. Once the wall was completely full they plugged each hole and patched over it. The difference in temperature in our house now that the weather is getting cooler is nothing short of remarkable.

As the guys were filling up our walls with insulation I couldn’t help but wonder what you’re filling your life with financially. Do you have a savings program going and are you filling up your bank account? Or are you spending money like there’s no tomorrow and filling your life up with lots of debt? If you don’t have a savings program going start one today. We’ve got a great certificate of deposit program to help you out and the rates can’t be beat. If you have too much debt in your life call one of our loan officers. They may be able to sort things out and get you on the road to being debt free.

One more piece of advice. If the walls of your house are not insulated consider having them done. It can make your house warm and cozy and get you set for winter. Give Octavia a call at 202-808-3624 and she can get you a home equity line of credit to help get you started.

Till Next Time,
Evan Clark, President and CEO
