Positioning vs. Pricing for Today’s Market… Or Getting Ahead Of the Pack - 01/16/07 04:53 PM
When it comes to evaluating a property and pricing a home properly how often do you look at how your seller will be positioned for competitive properties?

TAKING A CLOSER LOOK... - 01/15/07 09:20 PM
For today's savvy buyers: As a savvy buyer, your home search may seem like an endless series of critical, yet important decisions.

Most inspections are completed by an independent third party (of the buyer's choice) who provides a written report on the findings. (1 comments)

Realtors are agents, yet not allagents are Realtors.The term Realtor® is a nationally registered trademark and always capitalized when used. Only those who are members of NAR, (National Association of REALTORS) are (6 comments)
