buyers act fast: If Your Buyer Makes Home Inspection Requests, You Might Not Want to Say No Right Now - 09/26/22 11:09 AM

It’s an industry joke that some buyers request the seller to repair even the most minor issue found on a home inspection, like a leaky faucet for example. But over the past couple of years, most sellers could list their house and it would quickly sell for over asking price — and buyers would often waive the home inspection — so sellers wouldn’t have to worry about that at all. Even if the buyers did have an inspection, sellers could easily reply with a firm no, and the buyers would be fine with it.

buyers act fast: Don’t Give Up on Buying a Home if You’re a Millennial Renter - 09/26/22 10:58 AM

Almost 25% of Millennials (ages 26-41) claim they plan on renting forever according to this Apartment List article. That’s nearly double the amount since they started their ongoing survey of 31,000 Millennials in 2018.

buyers act fast: Good News if You’re Buying a House Wave Goodbye to Waiving a Home Inspection - 09/16/22 12:45 PM

Over the last couple of years, buyers have had to do everything they possibly could to compete. It wasn’t just about price; they also had to come in with as “clean” an offer as possible, which often meant waiving fairly standard contingencies.

Mortgage contingency: If the buyer’s mortgage isn’t approved, they can back out of the contract. Appraisal contingency: If the house doesn’t appraise for as much as the buyer … (3 comments)

buyers act fast: Covered Parking - Pros and Cons - 11/27/20 03:50 PM
Having a covered area where you can park your car at home isn't just an advantage when it's raining. The coverage can provide protection from the sun, birds, dirt, and tree sap. It's a handy feature that potential buyers and tenants should appreciate. 
 
Benefits of covered parking in homes or apartments
Covered stopping is helpful for some reasons. To start with, it prevents intense weather, for example, typhoons, twisters, hail, and even substantial downpours from making any harm to your vehicle.
