terri woods real estate: Toilet Seat Etiquette for Sellers in Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties - 01/14/14 02:12 PM
Put the toilet set down, please.
This has been one of those pet peeves of mine when I am showing a home. It is so unpleasant to walk in a bathroom, especially a luxurious bathroom, with a buyer and see the toilet seat up (sometimes not real clean, and even other times…, well, you know.)
I decided to Google the reasons why a person should put the toilet seat down, including health benefits in addition to the visual appearance so I could prove my point to any potential seller that may question my opinion on the matter.
And WOW! I hit … (4 comments)

Why should I buy a home?

terri woods real estate: New Year's Resolution - See the communities I service with new eyes - 01/12/14 04:49 AM
This year, I made a New Year's Resolution to really get to know the communities I service, with new eyes, the way a new person moving into the community might see.  
When a person lives in a community, we sometimes take things for granted. For example, I live in Santa Cruz County and we have a tourist venue called The Mystery Spot.  I am so surprised at the number of 'locals' who have never actually gone to The Mystery Spot. But people who don't live in Santa Cruz talk about it as the 'go-to' place. I had to laugh at … (3 comments)

  Did you know that the lender is not the only one who looks at your credit score when buying a home?
Unless you have recently purchased a home or refinanced the home you are currently living in, you may not be aware that insurance companies are now looking at credit scores.

If you write in the dust, please don’t date it!
