Home Shopping and the Four-Legged Stool

What kind of stool is most likely to keep you from toppling over when you sit on it? Of course, two-legged stools won’t even stand on their own. Three-legged stools are okay, but still unstable. Four-legged stools are rock solid. What does this have to do with shopping for a new home? Well, if you want to find the right home quickly and for the best price, you need to have four things in place - the four legs of the stool. They will help ensure the experience goes smoothly. The first leg is your wish list. You need to have a clear picture of the type of home you want. How many bedrooms? A large deck? Don’t forget about the neighborhood. Do you need to be close to major highways for ease of c

Moisture on Windows

You’re standing by your window admiring the view. Then you notice it. Moisture has built up around the edges of the glass. Should you worry? It all depends on the reason for the build up. Assuming you have traditional double-pane glass in your windows, there are a few things to look for if you notice moisture. Often, moisture at the bottom of your windows is simply caused by too much humidity in your indoor air. If that’s the case, simply adjust your humidifier.

Should You Worry About Market Fluctuations?

You turn on the television and watch a news story about housing prices going down. Then you read an article about the housing market on the upswing again. It’s a little like being on a roller-coaster ride! Unfortunately, the ride isn’t much fun if you’re thinking of buying or selling a home. In fact, it can be very confusing and frustrating. You just don’t know if “now” is the right time to make a move. In reality, the housing market has been fluctuating for decades. Yet, people sell their homes every day for good prices, and just as many people get into their next dream home affordably. When you hear news of market fluctuations, there are two important things to consider. First, a lot of

"Do you know a good contractor?"

Has this ever happened to you? You're looking for a contractor or other professional for a home project or repair. You search on Google and find hundreds of names. You spend hours considering them. Yet, you never feel confident that the people you find will be qualified, experienced and reputable. That's not an unusual scenario. In the end, most people email a friend or neighbor, and ask, "Do you know a good contractor?" Often that approach works best! In fact, a growing number of my clients come my way by referral too. I deeply appreciate all those people who recommend me to their friends and neighbors. So, I'd like to return the favor. You see, I'm well-connected in the local "home insdust
