Around the office, and on several online real estate groups in which I participate, I've been hearing a lot of questions about appraisals. Ranging from the typical, "What do I do if the appraisal comes in low?" and the "Should we remove the appraisal contingency to be more competitive?" to the "W...
As a real estate professional, I have the opportunity to see a lot of great homes. And to be honest, a lot of really bad ones, too.

I assumed it was a pumpkin plant.  This year I improved the soil and it came back. Again, it grew and grew, but no flowers or fruit....
When I first read this post, I noticed that it did a great job of highlighting the seller's perspective. I could see where there was frustration on the part of the seller when the buyer chose to void based on the home inspection contingency when the house seemed in good condition to them.I wonder...
Last week I was teaching a New Member Orientation class for GCAAR, my local Real Estate Association. Meeting all these new members often means meeting a room full of brand new agents. It's exciting to meet the amazing people who are just starting out in the real estate industry. Some are anxious ...
