I wish I could print this and pass it out! Too good. Really, when did people think that a real estate purchase was a sure thing? If you purchased from 2005-2008 and you have to sell now, you are probably going to lose money, regardless of what you put down.People who have lost something suffer fo...

This is ESPECIALLY important in emergency situations because how could the EMTs find your home if you were having a baby or a heart attack? Putting the numbers on the curb isn't good enough. Also, if you are going to sell your home, having numbers would be a good idea in case your sign is not ver...

Even though they are at the mercy of the buyer's loan transaction, there are still many things to do. I star...

This is a sample of what I give to my buyers when we are close to making an offer. It prepares them to what is lying ahead. I also have a similar checklist with dates so that we are all on the same page. No guesswork, and it takes a lot of stress off the buyers when going through contract to clos...

We don't typically like to use Escrow accts here in NC but this post points out high tension these transactions can get and how easily they can blow up over one little last thing. It's important that sellers see the future benefit (no longer owning and having to pay taxes and payments on).When ne...
