The other week, a colleague and I were talking about how challenging it can be to find a way to repurpose and recycle household items. Once you've outgrown an appliance or a dated electronic, it's time to consider where to put them besides out by the curb.   As a home stager, I run into this ques...

I've had several buyers, lately, who want me to make the decision.  Do you think this is the right place to buy?  Should I buy it? I'm not quite willing to make that decision.  I am not the decisionator.  It's your money, your home, and your decision. You will get my opinion (I ain't shy), but I ...

Well that's not a simple yes or no answer.  There are a lot of factors that would go into my determination of how I would respond if an agent asked me to show a Lake Sinclair home FOR them. First:  Do I have a relationship with this agent? Second: Is it a Lane Realty listing they want to see? Thi...

You may not resell it readily without offering the buyer a "fantastic deal".  I took this photo sitting on the shoulder of a busy 4 lane highway.    OK, it's noisy and that doesn't bother you. That may be the least of the considerations a buyer will have when it's time for you to resell the home....

Just hanging around the home. Not good. Home inspection electrical. It is amazing what we find when inspecting homes. In many cases the home owner was not the best person to be handling the "Electrical work" within the home. My guess is that the owners wanted to save money and "Not pay" for an el...

Staging FAQ’s: Does My Home Have to be Perfect to Sell It? Often when I see Home Staging photos, the homes look like a model home. Get real!  No one lives like that! When I’m providing a staging consultation, I sense when the homeowner is concerned that they will have to turn their home into a “s...

How Much Is TOO Much To Pay For A Domain Name? I guess the answer to that question depends on who is asking, who is buying, and who is selling. I spent several hours shopping for a dot com domain name for my new line of business.  More on that later. I'm still actively involved in real estate. I'...

How could I ever forget my very first real estate transaction? It took money out of my pocket. Yes, that was a learning experience which I will always remember.

When I walked into the master bathroom there was the ever so slight odor of mold present.  I did not think too much about it.  Musty odors in bathrooms are not all that uncommon, and perhaps that is why plug-in air fresheners are so common in bathrooms. When I opened the shower door, it became cl...

This is brand new construction - is pre-drilling screw holes on doors really that important? Most of the doors in the house were like this.  They are cracked at the strike plate. On the door of a double door, and on the side wall of the door framing, the wood was cracked at the strike plates. Why...

Friday I was asked by an agent if I knew "so-in-so" another agent in the area.  He was surprised that she dare ask to show a property on Easter Sunday, one of his listings.  It was owner occupied so it matters. In this area we have a lot of season residents so many homes are vacant starting in Ap...
