real estate: Our Team Tradition During Christmas Time.. - 12/20/16 09:30 AM
'Tis the season to give back! 
Every Christmas, we at Clocktower, have made it a tradition to give back to someone in need. This year we came together to buy gifts for a family that may not otherwise be able to afford celebrating Christmas . This can be especially tough when parents who are going through a hard time are unable to provide for their kids. We consider it an honor to be able to do this and hope we have made a difference in someone's life.

real estate: Think of Investing in your Future - 01/18/16 09:59 PM
Saving for the Future? Think of Investing in Real Estate 
It’s true what they say, investing in Real Estate is not for everyone. It’s not a quick get rich scheme, instead it is something that requires time, patience and most importantly planning. What is funny about this logic is that it is not much different than investing in other investments and it could yield a very high return if done right. Real estate is a tangible good as opposed to other type of investment portfolios so its value doesn’t decrease as quickly as some other riskier ventures, but it does depend … (1 comments)

real estate: 8 Expensive Home Repairs.. How do you avoid them? - 12/31/15 04:03 AM
8 Expensive Home Repairs and How to Avoid Them 
        The most popular rule of thumb to save for home maintenance is 1% of the total cost of your house, annually.  That means if your home is worth $350,000, you’ll likely spend on average $3,500 a year on upkeep.  Obviously certain years you’ll spend more than others, for instance, the year you install new roofing.  Other years you’ll spend substantially less.  You can invest in a home warranty that will cover some repairs, but likely not all of them.   Some of the more expensive repairs can be avoided by simple … (1 comments)

real estate: Common Home Inspection Misconceptions - 12/28/15 03:31 AM
Common Home Inspection Misconceptions      1.  Thinking that passing code means inspected— Contractors may know of all your local codes, but just because new construction on your home, an addition or otherwise, passes code doesn’t mean you should make assumptions on its quality.  In one example, an inspector discovered missing support beams in the crawl space of a new home to make room for duct work and it had already started sinking.  An inspection will give you an idea of the quality construction that’s been undertaken and could save you from future financial pitfalls.   2.  Choosing cost over experience— … (6 comments)

Cass that speaks from the seller’s point of view and I think it makes a lot of really good points.  It not only … (12 comments)
