Yesterday I had the fun of stopping at my local Ford dealer to ask about the backup camera on my 2020 Explorer. It seems to be working about half the time. I walked over to a young lady and asked her about the issue. It seems that the 2020 Fords all have this issue and there are 60,000 backup cam...
The current real estate market can only be described as crazy. I showed a home last week to a couple that was priced at $545,000. It had scratched up floors, bad dog smell, very loud air conditioner, and some cosmetic issues. Nevertheless, my clients made an offer. We offered $550,000. The listin...

Even before the pandemic we were faced with a shortage of homes to sell. The market responded by bidding up the prices of existing homes.At one point...
Why is it that when you decide to write a blog nothing comes to mind, but when you are too busy to write multiple ideas flood in? Why is it that when you finally decide to give up on a listing, it receives multiple offers? Why is it that when you finally leave the house for that long overdue vaca...
Well, your house is under contract. Took all of a day and you accepted an offer $25,000 above your asking price. Pretty sweet, right? Also negotiated short due diligence times and did not have to give up anything. This surely must be heaven. What could go wrong?If the buyer is getting a loan to p...
There are simple fixes around the home that can make a big difference when getting ready to sell. For instance, my next door neighbor just replaced her mailbox and so did I. They were starting to look old and beat up so we changed out the boxes and repainted the metal support pieces and repainted...
