buying a home: Sneaky, Just Not Sneaky Enough - 06/27/16 10:56 PM
Important information for buyers and sellers to know. You can't just paint over the problem!
Sneaky, just not sneaky enough.
Some sellers who move out of the house and have it painted and nice leave the place looking nice. 
And some sellers do things to try to hide problems that are being pushed off onto someone else.  When I see sneaky in one spot, I suspect sneaky elsewhere.

So, let's try to make one choice today that is a bit outside … (0 comments)

buying a home: Be Without Regret! - 01/19/15 10:14 PM
Making big life changes takes a lot of priming. You can't just wake up one day and go change careers, buy a house, or purchase a new car. You have to research, plan, and adjust your way of life. You also have to get yourself pumped up emotionally, a mental preparation of sorts. All that doesn't go without notice, so, of course, you tell your family and friends.
Sadly, not all big life changes go as planned. Sometimes, you start to go down this new path and you learn that it isn't exactly what you wanted. So, you do a 180 … (2 comments)
