Hello, Spring!! Today, I stumbled upon this wonderful 5-minute video about getting motivated to do a little Spring cleaning. "Do It On A Dime by Kathyrn " shares some amazing quick, inexpensive tips and tricks to clean all of those places of the home we usually don't think about (under the bed), or those areas we tend to ignore (the window coverings) and those other hard to reach areas (the ceiling fans)  that we are just to busy to clean on a weekly basis (guilty).As I was watching I started to think this would be a great video for home sellers! I always encourage my sellers to clean or have their homes professionally cleaned prior to listing their home for sale. But, if they don't have the time or the money to hire someone to clean professionally, this video would be a great tool to s...

Sorrento Trail is a Toll Brothers project (amazing of course) and is part of the master-planned Bella Vista Ranch. Bella Vista Ranch, by Toll Brothers, is a master planned community featuring 4 stylish home collections between south Reno and Carson City.

Part of the Reno home buying process should involve a home inspection at some point. Even brand new construction includes the potential for problems. Since you're investing so much of your hard earned money, you want to make sure your investment is as sturdy as possible. That's where the Reno home inspection comes into play. While an inspector looks at some things in your home, he/she may not uncover everything. When it comes to a Reno home inspection, you'll benefit from knowing what it does and does not cover.Reno Home Inspection: What it CoversWhile inspections vary from company to company, inspectors typically work off a checklist to ensure that important items don't get overlooked. They investigate for signs of possible structural issues (such as cracks in the foundation, uneven fl...

Affordability continues to be a sticky subject in the Reno housing market. The economy managed to slowly rebound from its huge downfall in the mid to late-2000s thanks in large part to its appeal for businesses in nearby Silicon Valley as well as other large corporations. However, their move into our area put a stranglehold on availability which builders are currently trying to catch up with. And we may not see relief in the Reno housing crunch until sometime in 2019.Reno Housing CrunchConstruction was big business for our community before the economic downturn of the last decade. That's why it took longer for Reno to pull itself up. Builders want to relieve the Reno housing crunch. But current demand drives up costs. They must sell homes in the $400,000 range in order to turn a profit ...
