Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Whether you're a new homeowner or you've been in your home for years, you may not know some key things about your house that could save you time, money and even save your life.

Tipman Tim, otherwise known as Tim Thompson, shows us some very high tech ways to keep your home secure, and spot potential problems at midtown Atlanta's historic mansion, Rhodes Hall.

Rhodes Hall is the headquarters of the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. On May 4 they're hosting a Home Owners Workshop from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It's for homeowners and homebuyers who are interested in either purchasing an older home, or hiring a professional to make repairs, or do-it-yourselfers wanting to make repairs or improvements themselves.

The grounds of Rhodes Hall will be filled with vendor displays offering information on all aspects of homeownership. Inside, seminars, lectures and demonstrations will be offered simultaneously on the half-hour, allowing attendees to participate in numerous sessions.

    We already know about some of the fees our banks charge -- the monthly fee, the overdraft charge, out-of-network and minimum balance fees. That's standard stuff. But did you know that the average checking account has 30 fees attached?
