9 tips for creating passwords that send hackers away–PLUS 5 points to remember when selling your home

To keep hackers out of your systems, never click on suspicious links or attachments, even from friends. But it's even more important to manage your passwords. Here's what internet security experts say we should do:

1. Use nothing from the dictionary. If your password is in the dictionary, it's no barrier at all. Even if you make  changes to a real word, hackers can still breach it.

2. Use a "passphrase." The longer the password, the harder it is to crack. One that's 14 characters or more is ideal. But long passwords are hard to remember, so think of a phrase–a favorite song lyric, movie quote, or poem, then use only the first few letters of each word for your "passphrase."

3. Try gibberish. Randomly run over your keyboard, hitting Shift and Alt/Option keys every once in a while. Copy each of these gibberish passwords into a text file and put it on an encrypted, password-protected USB drive. The best passwords have a random selection of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and keyboard symbols, like "%" and "+".

4. Store passwords securely. Never store your passwords on your computer. If it's hacked, all your accounts will be compromised. Store passwords on an encrypted USB drive with a long password you memorize, then copy and paste them into accounts to prevent keystroke logging software from getting them. Or simply keep password hints (not the passwords) on a piece of paper in your wallet.

5. Never use a password twice. Hackers love it when people use the same password for lots of sites. Once they get into your LinkedIn account, they'll try for your bank account. Make sure it's different.

6. Give crazy answers to security questions. It's not hard for hackers to find the real answers to these questions. So when accounts ask, "What high school did you attend?" make your answer something like, "The sky in Nebraska." But be sure to remember it!

7. Use more than one browser. Pick one browser for casual surfing – news, hobbies, forums, and blogs. Use another for social nets. Then choose a third to use only for the important stuff – online banking, bill paying, and e-mails. Then close it when you're done using it.

8. Pass on those password managers. There are password protection and password management programs available, but, remember, they still reside on the computer. If it's stolen, you've lost your passwords. Also, hackers have cracked some of this software.

9. Be careful about sharing. Try not to register for online accounts with your real e-mail address. You can get "throwaway" e-mail addresses at sites like, which self-destruct in 10 minutes. Consider everything you share online as public record.


Believe it or not; homes are often undersold in their listings. When you sell your home, here are 5 things buyers like that your agent should be sure to mention in the listing description:

1. Features not found in apartments. If your home is attractive to first-time homebuyers, point out the features that upgrade their lifestyle. These could be large closets, an attached garage, extra attic and basement storage, a bonus room, an outdoor kitchen. Be sure to feature anything not found in homes in your price range.

2. Special features with broad appeal. These can be things like built-in desks, an over-the-stove faucet for filling a pasta pot, a kitchen recycling center, custom closet or garage organizers.

3. Convenience to activities people want. If folks move to your area to hike, golf, ski, or go boating, point out any amenity your home has that goes with that activity.

4. Features that don't normally occur together in homes in your price range. These are features like: great views plus convenient shopping; vintage charm plus modern updates; an HOA that manages the outdoor space plus your own private yard.

5. Features that compensate for any drawbacks. If you have one less bedroom than other homes in your neighborhood, you might highlight a finished basement or bonus room. If you're next to a school, perhaps you can point out a larger yard. If your home needs updating, you could offer a closing cost credit.

If you are thinking of selling your home, you're probably thinking of buying another one. For information on financing that purchase, refinancing your existing home, or funding home improvements, please call or email us – we're always here to help.... Have a great day!

PS  The housing market is clearly recovering in many parts of the country. Home prices remain extremely affordable – and mortgage rates are still near historical lows. But if you're thinking about buying or refinancing, it's smart to get the financing process started early. Please call or email us to talk about the attractive options available now.

Capitol Insider - February 1, 2013



February 1, 2013


Legislative Update

On the 19th day of the 51st, 1st Regular Legislative Session, 921 bills and 48 memorials/resolutions have been introduced. Out of those, one bill has been signed by the Governor. February 4 marks the last day the Senate may introduce a bill and the following week, February 11, marks the last day the House may introduce a bill. Consequently, the number of introduced bills will significantly increase in the coming week.


HB 2337: Condominium; Planned Communities; Rental Properties

In recent years, it has become an all too familiar practice for homeowners' associations (HOAs) to interfere in the private property rights of a homeowner. Most recently, HOAs have begun to pass rules that limit or completely restrict an individual homeowner's ability to rent their property. In the event that an HOA does permit a homeowner to rent their property, several HOAs have interfered in the private lease contract by not only requiring a copy of the lease agreement, but additionally asking for sensitive personal information of the prospective tenant, such as social security number and credit history.


The most egregious of practices, however, is the HOAs ability to charge a fee for obtaining this personal information. In many cases, these fees have reached into the hundreds of dollars each time a property is rented, ultimately resulting in an exorbitant expense to the homeowner.


This year House Bill 2337 (condominium, planned communities; rental properties) sponsored by Representative Warren Petersen has been introduced to address these practices. The bill would allow a homeowner in an association to rent their property and designate a third-party to act on their behalf. Upon rental of the property, the name, age and telephone number of the tenants as well as the license plate number and vehicle description would have to be provided to the HOA. In an age-restricted community, a government issued identification card must be presented to the association for verification that the tenants meet the age restrictions.


The bill also prohibits an association from requiring or requesting the rental application, a credit report, lease agreement or rental contract and prohibits an association from requiring the tenant to sign a waiver or other documents limiting the tenant's civil rights of due process. Lastly, the bill limits the amount an association may charge as an administrative fee to no more than $25 for each new tenancy, a change from the current unregulated and unlimited amount.


This legislation is a step in further protecting private property rights for homeowners by establishing protections to guard against continued abuses by HOAs to over-regulate, interfered in contractual relationships, require sensitive personal information and unjustly assess costly fees on a property owner.


This bill has been assigned to the House Government Committee. Stay tuned to future Capitol Insiders as this bill progresses through the legislative process.
