After all the talk about how bad MLS pictures seem to be, how in the world can we talk about pictures that are too good? Well, from a technical point, I don't think pictures can be too good. We strive to show the property in it's best light, but what happens when we go too far? I showed a home ye...
Part of the process of buying a home is deciding whether or not to pay cash for the home or commit to a mortghage where you borrow the money and pay it back over a period of time. A lender will be able to tell you how much you can afford to borrow for that new home based upon your income and othe...
Yesterday I showed a home I had been in several years ago. It is apparently owned by an artistic person as there are words painted on the stairs and the front of the dishwasher has a painted picture of a cow. Yep, a cow. The home is in terrible shape and sits on 4-5 acres of mostly useless land. ...
I will be completely renovating my kitchen soon, and as part of the project, I need 3 single pane windows replaced.

I do, however, hear this fairly often from clients. There are many reasons a client may not want to be at a closing. ...
Have you ever found yourself explaining something over and over again? I really like the personal one-on-one with clients answering their questions and all, but wouldn't it be nice to be able to get a group together and explain something just one time? Now you can. It's called video. I am putting...
I have a theory and it is connected to the fact that I have my yearly physical today. I really don't like going to these. The Doctor always finds something to make me feel bad. Did I notice my weight has crept up? Yes, I know that. Did you know your chances of dying just jumped .04% because of th...
