On Monday my son told me that he needed 6 hours of community service before Friday.  “How long have you known about this?”  “Oh, about 4 weeks now…”  Luckily, we were able to schedule two 3 hour volunteer sessions at the Redwood Food Bank before Friday.  To be honest, it was really fun.  We bagge...

You know you've heard it over and over. Home sellers need to be absent when their homes are shown. But why? Buyers may have questions that only a seller can answer.
