Cyber-Security Expert Offers 10 Tips to Safeguard Your Information



Cyber-Security Expert Offers 10 Tips to Safeguard Your Information
By Gary S. Miliefsky

We’ve all lost our identity at least three times, with more than 930 million records breached, lost or stolen to hackers and cyber criminals, says consumer advocacy non-profit Privacy Rights Clearinghouse.

Why don’t we do all we can to stay safer online?

According to StaySafeOnline.org, more than a quarter of Americans say they lack the information necessary.

So, here it is – everything you need to know to enjoy the shopping experience without losing your privacy and identity or putting your children’s safety at risk:
  • Assume you’ve already been compromised. Whether it's your baby monitor, your SmartTV, the Webcam on your laptop or apps you installed on your smartphone or tablet, your antivirus is not enough protection. It's time to take those devices’ and apps’ privacy policies, and the permissions you grant them, much more seriously.
  • Change your passwords – all of them. Now. And do it as frequently as you can tolerate. Also, if you don't want to change it often, then use any unique characters you can think of, such as a dollar sign ($) or exclamation mark (!), or replace an "oh" with a "zero" (0). This goes a long way in preventing attacks against your password.
  • Turn off wireless and geolocation services. Protect your smartphones and tablets by turning off WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC and GPS, except when you need them. That way, if you are at a local coffee shop or in a shopping mall, no one can spy on you using nearby (proximity) hacking attacks and they can’t track where you were and where you are going on your GPS.
  • Assume most of your apps are creepware. Do you really need them? Delete all of the apps you aren't using too often. Replace apps that ask for too many permissions and take advantage of too many of your privacy settings -- like GPS, phone and sms logs, personal identity information – with similar apps that don't.
  • Opt out of sharing your information. Opt out of every advertising network that you can. Visit the National Do Not Call Registry and register your smartphone and home phone numbers at www.donotcall.gov. If you use a Google email account and have an Android phone, even with your GPS off, it's tracking your every move. (Log in to maps.google.com/locationhistory/b/0 and see for yourself.) Go into your smartphone or tablet settings and turn this feature off. In your Android phone, go to Settings, then Location, select Google Location Reporting and set Location History to off. The same holds true for the Apple iPhone, iPad and iTunes. You need to find the location and privacy settings and turn off access under Settings, then Privacy then Location.
  • Your browser is a double agent – keep it clean. It is spying on you for advertisers unless you block and remove cookies and delete the cache frequently. In your web browser settings, delete your history, all cookies and passwords and the cache. You should do this frequently so you don't leave personal information sitting around on your computer, smartphone or tablet.
  • Remove third-party Facebook plugins. Third-party plugins are mini applications designed to eavesdrop on your behavior in Facebook and possibly grab information about your habits within that social network. Some websites you visit will require you to log in using Facebook, and then you have to trust them to connect to your Facebook account. This is very risky. Read their privacy policy and make sure they are a legitimate business before you risk doing this.
  • Only shop on the websites of companies you already trust. If you don't know where the merchant is located, don't shop online there. If they don't have a corporate address or are located in another country, it is risky for you and you may never see the goods you think you purchased. Also, if their shopping cart experience is not an HTTPS browser session, then everything you type in, your name, address and credit card information, is going over the internet unencrypted -- in plain view.
  • Turn off geotagging – your photos are full of information. Twitter and Instagram as well as your iPhone will give away your location. Most peopleĆ¢€¨don't realize Twitter and Instagram both use geotagging for everything you send out. Geotagging stores the latitude and longitude of your tweet or image. Pictures you take on an iPhone usually store geotagging information, as well. The less information you give out about where you are located, the safer you are.
  • Don’t use cash or debit cards – use credit cards, wisely. Credit cards allow you to travel with less cash, and if you’re purchasing online, it's safer to give your credit card than your debit card information. The same holds true when you visit your local retail outlet. The reason? If you experience identity theft, credit card laws allow you to keep all of your credit, with no responsibility during an investigation. With a debit card, your bank can tie up your money in the amount equivalent to the fraudulent transactions for up to 30 days.

Home Values Compared to the Peak of 2006-2007 | Keeping Current Matters
There is no doubt that the housing market has recovered from the meltdown that occurred just a few short years ago. However, in some states home values still have not returned to the prices we saw in 2006 and 2007. Here is a breakdown showing where current prices are in each state as compared to peak prices.

Selling? 10 tips for decorating your porch for the holidays

Are you one of the thousands of sellers who has your home on the market this holiday season?  Are you torn between whether or not you should decorate at all?  Depending on which article you read, or who you speak with, will impact the advice and opinion you receive.  I am always pro-decorating for the holidays, with one simple caveat - it must be tasteful decor!  No big plastic Santa on the roof.  Or oversized inflatables on the front yard...

Plenty of people disagree with me and believe instead that holiday decorations increase the risk of offending someone.  In over 20 years of selling real estate, I have never had a buyer be offended by holiday decorations.  Instead, the decorated homes tend to appear a bit more welcoming, and warmer - which is an added bonus during a Chicago winter!

Just keep the decor tasteful.  Simple.  Soft.  Tone it down from your typical annual display.  Garlands on a staircase, garnished with twinkling lights.  A lightly staged mantled, dressed with stockings and candles.  The Christmas tree, tucked in the corner or filling the oft empty space of a bay window.

And do not forget the entry.  Especially if you are in a cold climate where a buyer will be standing, looking around, while the agent fidgets with opening the lockbox.  Again, keep it simple.  Want some ideas?  Click here to check out this post from tatertots & jello, offering 10 tips for a terrific porch display.  Happy Holidays!

Why it's important to use a Real Estate Professional to sell...

The Importance of Using an Agent When Selling Your Home | Keeping Current Matters

Want the ultimate kitchen? Try these tips...

Ahhhhh...the holiday season is quickly approaching.  For some people, that means spending extra time in the kitchen - or worse yet, having lots of guests spend extra time in your kitchen.

In the world of real estate, the kitchen is generally the center of the home.  It tends to be a major focal point of buyers, and it usually is the most expensive room in the house.  And the room that we spend the most time in.  Not only to prepare and eat meals, it also serves as a homework space, hobby nook, home office and entertainment hub.  Have you ever noticed how many people congregate in the kitchen, whenever you invite a group to your home?

Better Homes & Garden put together 25 Tips to Get the Ultimate Kitchen.  While some are a bit more extensive (& expensive) to pull off, there are also some simple ideas that can easily be completed in time for the holidays.  Love your kitchen, it is such an important part of your home!

Buying a home is a big deal…

…so why would you do it alone?

Typically, real estate is the largest personal investment an individual will make.  It is also a very complicated process, having become more and more complex over the past several years.  A mistake can be very costly.  Don’t start the process by yourself.  Rely on the professionals who are there to assist buyers from start to finish.

Need a few more reasons why you should upgrade now?

Home prices are still down.  Interest rates are hovering under 5%.  You want a larger home, but have been waiting for the market to stabilize.  There are signs that the market is starting to hold it’s own.  Every now and then, a drop in inventory and a spike in buying activity brings a glimmer of hope to us all – hope that the market is rebounding.  And, the market appears to be making baby steps to leveling out.  If you have been contemplating selling your home in order to buy a larger one, now may be the time to finally take action.  While you may be able to sell your home at a higher price in the future, the delay will cost you money.  The selling price on the home you buy, as well as the interest rate on your new mortgage, will be higher as well.  Still not convinced?  Take a look at the graph here

The top 10 perks of a 55 and older gated community are…

Often times, downsizing sellers who are entering their golden years are a bit at a loss as to which direction to head, when it comes to housing.  Most are accustomed to a large home, and today’s older generation tends to have lived in the same home for a number of decades.  Most have only owned that one home, the place where they first moved when they got married, raised their children, and often times became their retirement nest egg.

Over the past 10-15 years, 55 and older communities have increased in not only number, but in popularity.  While met with resistance when they initially hit the real estate world, now, these communities offer exactly what most of the senior homeowners are looking for…a place to call home.  Curious as to the top 10 benefits these communities offer?  Click here Top 10 perks

What is the true cost of waiting to buy a home?


 If you are thinking about buying a home, but aren't sure about the cost, this KCM article offers a different way to look at it.  Especially, for the younger buyers who are watching every penny.  Years ago, when Oprah was still on, she had David Bach on her show.  He coined the phrase "the latte factor" and wrote books and seminars on the topic.  His theory was that if you saved what you were spending on a cup of Starbucks coffee every day, you could save up some big money.  This article has a similar theme to it, providing encouragement to buy the home NOW.  It may mean sacrificing a few items in the short term, however in the long run, it should be well worth it!

Want a higher net worth? Start by...

buying a home!

Most housing markets saw a crash in home values around 2008.  That has left some people questioning whether they should buy a home, or rent instead.  Here is a pretty good reason to buy - the average homeowners' net worth is over 30 times greater than that of the average renter.   Who doesn't want to be on the winning side of that statistic?

39 wall art ideas to get your creative juices flowing...

Last night I was sitting on the couch in my family room, after returning home from an evening walk with my dogs.  I have lived in this house for 8 years now.  And for 8 years I have stared at a blank wall on one side of the room, and a beautiful cherry Federal mantle on the other side.  Both are screaming for attention.  I think that it is time I do something to spice them up.  One of these ideas just may do it!  Or at least get my creative juices flowing...

Nothing beats the dog days of summer

I have said it a number of times - I want to come back as my dog in my next life.  My dogs are spoiled, and absolutely adored.  And they love to take walks, and ride in the car, and play ball.  They hate the water.  Two labs, and they avoid lakes, ponds, sprinklers and our pool - at all costs.  It doesn't seem to bother them though - they make up for it where they can.

Which renovation is your favorite?

I have always loved the architecture of older homes.  When Steve and I were buying our first home, it was between a 1915 cape cod that needed a ton of work, and a 1960's ranch that only needed an updated kitchen.  My head won over my heart, and we bought the ranch.  I still think about that cape cod, and what we could have turned it into.  I loved looking at these renovated transformations.  Who knows?  Maybe someday I will get the chance to do the same thing, to an older home that is in desperate need of some labor and some love.

A finished basement nicely expands the home’s living space for your enjoyment. The attached three car garage is accessed through the laundry room and provides great additional storage.



Let’s talk about the heart of this home—the outstanding custom kitchen! Vaulted ceilings dabbled with recessed lights include 3 chandelier lights over the island area. Look at the length of the granite counter space set beneath all those windows— providing a grand panorama of nature at her best! Amish cherry cabinetry is utilized throughout, including the snack-bar island. Two separate dishwashers and a cabinet-faced refrigerator/freezer go hand in hand with the Wolf and Viking appliances. The expansive kitchen eating area adjoins both the family room and hearth area with its see-through gas fireplace and access to the screened porch. Appliances: Viking down-draft cook-top, Wolf double convection/wall ovens plus a warming drawer, microwave, refrigerator and 2 Bosch dishwashers. Chefs welcome!



The family room has been designed for beauty and functionality as evidenced by its built-ins flanking the gas fireplace. This room enjoys the combination of marvelous space with intimate ambience. Cove molding along with the painted wainscoting highlight the rich oak flooring. Open to the kitchen & living room, this room is set for family entertaining, easily and comfortably.



Adjoining the family room is the screened in porch. Affording lovely views of the outdoors, especially summer evenings, this is just the perfect spot in which to unwind.



Now THIS is a master suite which will provide a retreat anyone would welcome at the end of the day! Simple yet elegant, this space enjoys built-ins, a flat-screen TV, lighted fan, shutters, and an ample size walk-in closet. Wait until you step inside the custom marble & tile bathroom - prepare to pamper yourselves in the oversized corner whirlpool tub, OR perhaps, the separate walk-in tiled shower with body spray, hand nozzle & overhead shower. The curved lines of the granite-capped furniture-style double vanity adds a delightful finishing touch. Lovely!



The secondary bedrooms are ample in size and have great closet space. Bedrooms 2 & 3 utilize the updated hall bath with a honed marble vanity, marble tiling in a subway tile pattern on the walls —which in turn is wonderfully complimented by a basket-weave tile floor. Tile carries right into the walk-in shower with its rain showerhead. Bedroom 4 is the largest with lighted ceiling fan, great storage and its own private bathroom.



Downstairs is the finished basement, home to an exercise room with rubber mat flooring. The TV in this room remains. Carpeting is utilized throughout the game and recreational rooms. Built in shelving sits on either side of the decorative fireplace. Speakers in the rec area remain. Tons of storage is provided as well.

41% of Americans would prefer to build...

According to KCM's findings, 41% of Americans would prefer to build their home, as opposed to buy an existing property.  Those are terrific numbers, if you are selling a plot of land, or are a homebuilder looking for business.

However, if you are trying to sell an existing home, how can you use this information to help sell your home? Take a look at the graph.  Give your attention to the reasons that home buyers prefer to build, and make some changes to increase your home's appeal.  Pay heed - cost savings is the number one driving force for purchasing a resale over a new build.  If you are going to update your current home, to enhance its' desirability - make sure your costs are reasonable.

Wondering if you should sell your home this spring? Here are 3 reasons you should...

Ask anyone when the best time to sell a house is, and most people will respond "spring" without hesitation.  Yet this year, a delayed spring season, following a brutal winter, has caused sellers hold off on listing their homes.  Some are debating whether they want to sell, others are waiting for conditions to change, evaluating if the timing is right.  KCM has put together a quick list of some of the reasons why now is a good time to sell...

Bored with your home? 21 Free Ways to Love Your Home Again...

It's been a brutal winter this year, and Mother Nature hasn't been very kind this spring either.  Cabin fever sunk in, for us Chicagoans, long ago.  While I love the Benjamin Moore brown that I painted my family room last spring, I am tired of staring at it.  I have all spent a lot more time in my home than I typically do, and if I can't head outside, then I have realized that I need to freshen things up a bit.

I am not looking to re-decorate or redesign.  I am looking for low-cost ideas, to change things up a little bit.  I found some great ideas on Houzz.  Minimalistic approached like playing background music and setting the table with fine china.   I love to bring lilacs & hydrangeas inside, sadly they are not close to opening yet this year!  However, I have never thought about placing them in anything other than a standard vase.  That will change this year!  And how many candles do I have lying around waiting for an opportunity to use them? What exactly am I waiting for?

If your home is on the market right now, consider implementing some of these ideas to warm up your space, and create some added appeal for your buyer.
