What You Need to Know About Car Seat Safety in Minnesota

Apr 4, 2017 2:20:51 PM

Some of you reading this probably remember a time before car seat safety was "a thing." In fact, some of you might remember a time when sitting on your mother's lap was the safest place to be in a moving vehicle. It wasn't until 1985 that car seat safety laws were passed throughout the entire United States. Up until that point, it was generally up to parental discretion and state law how or if children were secured during transport. In the years since we've come a long way in introducing regulations related to car seat safety and child safety in general. Today, I'm covering car seat guidelines and information to help parents and guardians keep their children safe.

How to Purchase a Vehicle for Every Stage of Your Life

Mar 30, 2017 2:20:00 PM

With children, there are always these tiny changes signaling new stages of life. For instance, the time your little one traded in her rattle for building blocks and her first time riding the bus home to spend a few hours alone are both times when she entered a new stage of life. In an instant, things were different and there was no going back.

Life is a constant state of growth and change. While no life is the same, there are a few core phases most adults move through, too.

Help Your Kid Build their Credit Score - Co-Sign Their Vehicle Loan

Mar 15, 2017 10:53:00 AM

Paying an arm and a leg just to establish your credit score isn’t the only option for this generation of young adults. For teens and 20-somethings looking to finance their first vehicle purchase, having a parent co-sign can make the process a lot smoother – and much less expensive. I regularly work with parents who are struggling to decide whether or not to co-sign their kids’ vehicle purchases, and this is what I tell them.

Financing Through a Dealership Vs. Third Party Financing

Mar 13, 2017 2:12:00 PM

When you finance a vehicle and drive it off the dealership lot, the vehicle you’re driving is yours, and it’s been paid for in full by your lending agent. At this point, you are responsible for repaying the lending agent for the purchase amount, plus interest. The majority of finance agreements are financed either through the dealership you purchased from or an independent bank. The lending agent you choose affects your timeline, your pocketbook, and your options.

4 Car Buying Hidden Costs Most Auto Dealers Don't Tell You About

Mar 10, 2017 10:28:03 AM

When you set out to purchase a car, there are a few things you end up paying for beyond the sticker price. Now, some dealerships might try and hide these fees to keep you from understanding what you're paying for, but honestly, that approach doesn't make much sense to me.
