dale weir: Spot vs Boundary Surveys WHY the difference and WHy are they Important - 06/18/10 04:21 AM
Spot surveys have been the norm in the St Louis area for many years. They were cheaper. The title coverage was not quite as great, but it wasn't significantly different, so why bother paying for a boundary survey which would be at least a $100 more? A few months ago the primary title companies in the area started insisting on boundary surveys before providing survey coverage to the buyers.

Homes are like that – we live in them every day and as they age and start to creak and have issues we often don’t see them because we’ve watched the gradual transformation.

dale weir: Dale's Checklist for Taking Care of Vacant Homes - 10/02/09 02:57 AM
 
Both as a friend and as a Realtor, I end up taking care of vacant homes for people. Often I get asked for my “checklist” of what to look for and how to take care of a home. When someone is asked to care for a home, it’s often a simple, “will you watch over my home for me” with no real guidance or instructions, and while that works for a short vacation trip, it doesn’t work when the homeowner is gone for a much longer time period. As a result, I’ve written out these instructions to give to the … (5 comments)
