What Makes a Good Neighborhood? When you buy a house, you also invest in the neighborhood that surrounds it. The identity of a neighborhood may be as important to property values as the individual properties themselves. In a “planned community”, strictly controlled architecture governs a carefully crafted identity block after block. In a rural town, tree-lined streets and an old-fashioned town square preserve a disappearing way of life. In a large city, an older neighborhood's ethnic history has shaped its character and often drives its rejuvenation. It's important to know where a neighborhood has been—and where it's going—before you decide to buy. 1. Start with Statistics It's now possible to get valuable neighborhood statistics online. Crime statistics, school scores and demographic i...

For the last week the World has been focused on the US men's Olympic swimming icon Michael Phelps and his stunning ability to win all the gold metals and break all past recorders in the races he has swam in so far. He has the chance to win 7 Gold metals in the 2008 Olympics alone, and he has already became the all time individual Gold metal winner with 2 more events still to come. Well when I was watching the news this morning an interesting point came up and I thought about home Staging for some reason... The point was that every 4 years when the Olympics come around the Swimming team captures the attention of the world for about a week during competition then kind of fades away. There maybe a cereal box with the Gold metal winners, or a commercial or 2 with a swimmer in it but that;s ...

"Upon Further Inspection" One of the most important steps in the home buying and selling process is often overlooked: the home inspection. While many buyers and sellers alike are wary of inspections (for fear of finding the dreaded "deal-breaker"), in reality thorough and timely inspections help smooth the process and prevent headaches during or after closing. The Difference between Appraisal and Inspection Many consumers are unclear regarding the difference between a home appraiser and a licensed home inspector.  A house appraisal is an independent evaluation of the current market value of the home from your lenders/bank perspective.  Generally speaking, the appraiser's job is to review the property to determine its worth relative to similar properties in the area and recent sales hist...
