Buying a House This Year?
If you’re planning on buying and selling in a buyers’ market, an important point to remember is this:
You will sell for less, but also buy for less, so the truly significant number is the difference between the two. Another thought to keep in mind is that it may be wise to sell first - before going house shopping.

With spring in the air and warmer weather fast approaching, I thought it was a great time to talk about lowering our outdoor water usage. Here are some tips that will make a huge impact on both the environment and our pocketbooks!
