3 Tips to Enjoy Your Yard This Summer!
 
Summer is right around the corner and many of you are excited to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. One of the best places to enjoy this great weather is right in your backyard, however many of you will disagree. Many homeowners do not enjoy staying on their properties during the summer to "enjoy" the outdoors. Lots of homeowners are discouraged due to the condition of the outside of the house. Maybe there's a yard project you've put off for years, or maybe you've been waiting to fix the outdoor patio furniture. Stop with the excuses … (2 comments)

Check Before Buying With These Pets!
 
As real estate professionals we are expected to have all the answers! We get a large variety of questions thrown at us and sometimes the questions are easy to answer, other times, the questions may stump us. 
 
One thing we always advise people to double check on is the pet policies. You don't want to lock someone into a property only for them to find out one of their family members is not welcome.
 
To start: Make sure that the HOA will allow your animal of choice. It's hard to have a Lab in your HOA when there is a 35lb … (3 comments)

real estate: Forget about letting the animals out… Don’t let one in! - 06/04/15 04:46 AM
Forget about letting the animals out… Don’t let one in!
 
 
As you are aware, when you are scheduling your showings on properties there’s that spot that always gives you pet instructions. It say things like “Cat in bedroom, don’t let out”, “dog in yard, don’t let out”, “friendly pack of labs”… you get the picture.
So there I am scheduling a showing and I am relieved to see that there are no pet instructions on the showing notes. I love animals, I just don’t LOVE the idea of being responsible for them getting out.
 
 
I show up at the home. Talk to the client … (2 comments)

No Ferrets allowed in HOA’s!
 
We can all sit around a fireplace for months and share funny stories about bizarre HOA rules. I have heard my fair share of crazy ones and my fair share of rules that almost make sense. However, imagine your buyer finding out the HOA does not allow ferrets two weeks into being under contract.
What do you do?
 
 
Just a random thing we came across. We live in a state where ferrets are legal. You can buy them at any local pet store and many people do have them. It makes me wonder how many ferrets are in HOA’s … (15 comments)

real estate: Style or Safety? - 05/07/15 01:02 AM
Style or Safety?
When you think of a profession that requires you to use your personal vehicle you probably think of real estate agents. We see cars all over town with wraps, stickers, or magnets that are real estate agent’s cars. There is a quite a large variety of vehicles out there which makes me wonder if agents choose cars for style or safety. Maybe neither… maybe you pick your car for reasons besides these two.
This question automatically makes me think of Modern Family where Phil goes out and buys the stylish little car that he cannot fit his signs into.
