Will more earnest money help you win if you are competing for a home?  Maybe.  It certainly could not hurt!  Earnest money is also considered an act of good faith and it is typically around 1% of the purchase price or more.  Every state and area is unique, so it is best to ask your REALTOR!  The ...

Not so extreme, I moved my own cats across town.  I found that I fell into a catch 22...much like my clients. Leaving them at the current home was stressful for them and me.  They were scared of all of the boxes and strangers in the house that were there to help pack.  At first, the boxes everywh...

My poor kitty.  He loves to be able to go outside and lay on the deck.  But in the winter, there is too much snow and too little sun....in fact, we have not seen the sun in over a week here in Iowa.  And when the sun returns, we will not remember what it is.   Does real estate market have the win...

Over the weekend, we received two offers on my new listing.  Unfortunately, one of them had a lender letter that was not worth the paper that I just printed it on.  It literally said the following "Subject to the information verbally provided by the client at the initial application phone call." ...

Sandra makes some great points about the pros and cons of buying or selling first!  In some markets, sellers will not consider contingent offers especially when there are lots of buyers out looking and the listing has not been on the market for very long. What is best for your situation is not th...

It is one of the last places that you think to check when you are moving out.  You go through the rooms and look in the closets, you look under the sink in the kitchen, you open the linen closet and make sure you didn't forget anything.  You might even open the mailbox on your way out, just to ma...

Here are a couple of situations that have happened this week.  The first one:  The buyer sent her new license to the new address.  She didn't want to chance it going to the old address and with the timeframe estimate, it seemed like a safe bet.  Luckily, the seller left it on the kitchen counter ...

I am thankful for hats, mittens, and warm winter coats.  In the last week, we have received over 12+ inches of the white stuff here in Iowa.  And with the wind chill, we are well below zero for the next few days.  Although the sun was out on Wednesday, that wind.....brrrrrr.  Thank goodness for h...
