Please proofread. People will judge you by your ability to use the written English language appropriately.
Here are some common mistakes I've seen around AR:
- you're and your - "You're" is a contraction for "You are" and "Your" is a possessive pronoun. For example, "Be happy when you're selling your home."
- its and it's - "It's" means "It is." If your sentence would make sense with "it is," then you can use "it's." If not, then use "its." "Look at that dog! It's wagging its tail!"
- two, too, and to - The word "two" is a number. The word "too" means the same thing as "also." And the word "to" can be used for everything else. As in "I know two ways to sell homes, too."
- their, there, and they're - "Their" is possessive, as in "Their house is cute." "There" is a direction, as in "There is their house." "They're" is a contraction for "They are," as in "There is their house. It looks like they're home."
