A home inspection now could save you money

WASHINGTON (9/19/08)--A home inspection isn’t just for home buyers. Even if you’ve owned your home for several years, having your house inspected may help you set future repair priorities and plan upgrades--and save money over the long run, according to three of the guests on Sunday’s Home & Family Finance radio show. Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. EDT on the Radio America Network. The one-hour program devoted to consumer finance issues is brought to you by America's credit unions and their 90 million members, and is presented by CO-OP Network. The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and Radio America are podcasting Home & Family Finance through iTunes, Podcast Alley, Odeo, and other popular podcast library sites, as well as on Radio America and CUNA’s websites. Sunday’s show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, features Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:

* “Going Buggy? Hire a Pest Control Firm,” with Greg Baumann, senior scientist and technical director, National Pest Management Association, Fairfax, Va.; * “Get Your Home Inspected,” with Nick Gromicko, founder and director of public relations, International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, Boulder, Colo.; * “How to Hire a Home Improvement Contractor,” with Renee Rewiski, president, National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Des Plaines, Ill.; * “Declutter and Organize Your Home,” with Marcia Weuve, owner, Impact Solutionz: The Organizing Specialists, Austin, Texas; and * “How to Zap Your Home Electricity Expense: Listener’s Best Money Management Tip,” with Susan Tiffany, director of personal finance information for adults, CUNA, Madison, Wis.

Home & Family Finance is a resource center for personal finance information at CUNA. The radio show is sponsored by CO-OP Network, the national credit union ATM network; Cabot Creamery Cooperative, maker of award-winning cheddar; Visa; and Western Corporate FCU and its member credit unions.
