So Long September... - 09/30/11 08:02 AM
I am so happy to say bon voyage to the month of September. It has brought more rain, mosquitoes, wet basements and leaky roofs than I can tell you! While the mid west is suffering with extreme heat and drought, here in Pennsylvania we have had more water than we could ever know what to do with. It's too bad we couldn't work out some sort of "survivor pipeline" to help each other out. Bring on October- with some nice crisp, Fall temperatures and LESS rain!
This is EXACTLY Why I Love My Job... - 09/29/11 03:55 PM
I am currently working with clients that have been through every possible roadblock that could come up on their relocation to this area. Yet, they remain unshaken. They are constantly telling me that they are sorry that they are making me work so hard and they always greet me with a smile and remind me of how grateful they are that I am working so patiently with them. These poor people have every reason to have a meltdown. A mild tantrum maybe? A grumpy remark occassionally? If they do, I have never seen it. This family and others like them that I have (3 comments)

Sellers Disclosure- Means the Seller must disclose....what they KNOW. - 09/22/11 11:12 AM
One of the most important documents that come in front of a prospective buyer is called the sellers disclosure. Each seller in Pennsylvania is required to fill out a sellers disclosure when putting their home on the market. The disclosure is to provide a clear picture of different aspects of the property, such as roof, basement, electrical etc. The seller is obligated to disclose any and all situations that affect the property that they are aware of. For example: There has been a leak in the basement for several years, and it has been addressed by a waterproofing company- the sellers must (2 comments)

BIG No-no when you're on your way to settlement... - 09/08/11 09:45 AM
First time homebuyers sometimes travel through a long and arduous path to reach that dream of being handed their keys at the settlement table. Beginning with being able to get pre approved for that mortgage. Once they have that precious piece of paper in hand they set out on their search....to find their dream home. Once they find that home, and their agent negotiates the price and TA DA ... a successfully agreed upon agreement of sale. Just a short trip to the settlement table right? Not so fast... The first thing MANY first time homebuyers want to do after they've gotten (5 comments)
