cliff kavanaugh keller williams realty charlottesville: Charlottesville Real Estate Agent Help Borrowers Compare Lenders - 05/21/10 10:27 PM
 
Do real estate agents buy into the idea that "shopping around" for a mortgage is a good thing? Or do most agents fall into the category of always recommending the same lender, secretly hoping that the buyer will NOT shop?

The original purpose of the cell phone, talking, is decreasing, while SMS/text messages have increased by nearly 50%.  Smart phone design is trending towards data functionality, such as … (4 comments)

cliff kavanaugh keller williams realty charlottesville: Open House in Charlottesville VA - 05/21/10 10:18 PM
Open house can be very productive here in Charlottesville VA!

Realtors have differing opinions on the benefits of holding open houses. I've had open houses where I've got a contract on a listing, and like many of us, I've sat for two hours by myself. In my experience, if you choose to do open houses, there are several things you need to consider a few things:
 
-Summer is coming. In the south, that means 100+ temperatures. And up north, the heat, combined with the humidity, makes for a stuffy home. Whatever you do, make sure the temperature in the … (1 comments)

cliff kavanaugh keller williams realty charlottesville: Cleaning Your Jetted Tub - A jetted tub requires special care needs for cleaning! - 05/21/10 01:13 AM
 
A jetted tub requires special care needs for cleaning with some surprises in store. Surprisingly, most problems come from simply adding bath salts or oils that are incompatible with your tub's operating system.

So before you take that first relaxing dip, read the manufacturer's guidelines on whether or not you can use common bath enhancers such as bath salts and oils, or if there are any preferred brands. Similarly, when you buy bath additives, make certain they are guaranteed for use in jetted tubs.

cliff kavanaugh keller williams realty charlottesville: Charlottesville real estate: Remove clutter in your home. - 05/17/10 01:17 AM
 
                                  
No one likes to hear that the have to "Shed a Few Pounds".  I don't mean personally, I mean the house you are about to list needs to have the clutter and debris removed before even thinking about marketing their home.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.  We have to be tactful but honest about what needs to be done for them to maximize the value they will receive for their home.
