Costs associated with caring for a property can run many homeowners as much as $9,390 every year, according to an analysis by Zillow and Thumbtack. Property taxes, utilities, and homeowners insurance are necessary expenses tend to add up fast for homeowners. “Nationally, these costs add up to $6,327 per year, but can be much higher in more expensive markets,” the report stated. “In San Jose, where the typical home is worth $1,287,600, these costs add up to $17,255 per year, the highest of any market analyzed. By contrast, these costs add up to $5,540 annually in Indianapolis, less than one-third of the San Jose total.”Another cost homeowners often do not consider until it starts affecting their pocketbooks is professional services—house cleaning, lawn care, carpet cleaning, central air and heating system repairs, gutter cleaning, and pressure washing, among others. According to the report, the average cost of these tasks nationally is $3,067 per year. “Labor costs vary in different parts of the country,” the report stated, “so these jobs can be much more expensive depending on where someone lives.” In Portland, for example, homeowners can expect to pay $3,810 per year for these projects, compared with the $2,570 owners in Miami can expect to spend, the report found.”Ongoing maintenance costs and annual fees are some of the most common surprises for first-time home buyers after they finally become homeowners,” said Zillow Senior Economist Aaron Terrazas. “While they are shopping, buyers tend to focus on their monthly mortgage payments, but other needs quickly add up after move-in. The list price is just the beginning of understanding the costs that come with being a homeowner, and it’s important to understand what other expenses you may have to account for when determining what you can afford.” Lucas Puente, the lead economist at Thumbtack, added that many basic maintenance costs “are often overlooked when calculating the cost of buying a home. It’s imperative that those looking to buy a home do their homework to avoid any surprise charges.” Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe

The Baggy Green’s A side, featuring five-day vice-captain Brad Haddin, Peter Siddle, Nathan Lyon and Pattinson, as well as Test hopefuls Usman Khawaja, Fawad Ahmed and Smith, closed a rain-affected day one of 248 for six. That was thanks largely to a 109-run alliance between all-rounder Smith (104 not out) and Pattinson (42*), who rescued the situation after the top order had struggled. Nic Maddinson went for six – one of Max Sorenson’s four scalps – while Khawaja was cleaned up for a five-ball duck. Alex Doolan did make 40 but Haddin’s two and Siddle’s duck meant trouble was brewing. Moses Henriques made 47 to steady things, though, with Smith and Pattinson then easing the pressure before the rain came. Press Association An Australian side featuring a number of their likely Ashes starters were thankful to a seventh-wicket stand between Steve Smith and James Pattinson as they fought back against Ireland.
It was almost a year ago that Jamaican-born neurosurgeon Odette Harris, MD, MPH was named Professor of Neurosurgery at Stanford University, becoming the first black, and Jamaican, woman to hold the position at an Ivy League school in the United States. Harris is also perform surgery at Stanford Health Care. In an article published by Stanford Medicine last year, Harris explained it was people who believed in her and gave her the fortitude to pursue her goals. Teachers, family members and even a nun are among those who she says helped fuel her fire to succeed, and imparted in her a love for science and mathematics. With her success deeply tied to community, support and love, Harris is passionate about mentoring others. Incredibly optimistic “I’m an incredibly optimistic person,” Harris told Stanford Medicine. “Yes, I’m very hopeful. I believe that hope has to be coupled with opportunity. We can’t just rest on hope. We can’t just say, ‘This is getting better. Things are getting better.’ We all have a responsibility to continue to make sure that those accomplishments and achievements continue and that there’s opportunity for people,” she said.However, Harris’ story has not been free from obstacles. Challenges due to race and gender As she explained to Stanford Medicine, “You’re black, you’re a woman, you’re in an all-white hospital – patients are constantly reminding you of that. I could list probably a hundred different experiences where I was asked to empty the garbage, or take out the trays, or clean out the toilets when I was just there to use the bathroom myself.” Multifaceted pioneer A multifaceted pioneer, Harris holds many prestigious and influential roles. For instance, since 2009, she has been the Associate Chief of Staff of Polytrauma at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System and the Site Director/Principal Investigator of the Defense Veterans and Brain Injury Center in Palo Alto. Much of her work delves into her interest on how trauma affects men and women soldiers differently. Harris graduated from Dartmouth College in 1991. She then went on to study medicine at Stanford University, where she was the only black woman in her class at medical school, and the only woman during her residency. She also completed a master’s degree in public health in epidemiology at University of California, Berkeley in 2001. By 2007, she joined Louisiana State University, where she worked on peripheral neuropathy, and went on to complete a fellowship at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica.Undoubtedly, Harris is an anomaly. Statistics from the Association of Women Surgeons indicate that in 2015, women comprised only 19.2 percent of all surgeons in the US. However, Harris is determined to assist in bulldozing the grossly lagging rate of women to men, and miniscule number of black women overall, in her industry. “I work really hard to make sure that in the next generation there’s representation for everyone at the table who wants to be there,” she explains.
