Asking About Issues in Home When you buy a home you trust the sellers to be open and honest about what they are offering for sale. In fact, there are certain things the law generally requires them to disclose. Those things can vary from state to state, so working with a real estate agent to ensure the purchase of a safe, quality home is important.

But there are still some things you will want to ask about potential homes. Investigating those areas of concern can help determine whether the home is really a good buy, or if there are issues you won't want to deal with.

Selling Older Home Successfully Much has been written about the millennial home buyer and their effect on the real estate market.

Red walls? Wallpaper? Shelves full of tchotchkes? They symbolize an emotional investment in your personal space. Should you ditch them when it comes time to show the house? The statistics say YES, you should.

According to a 2016 Real Estate Staging Association study, staged homes averaged only 23 days on the market before they were sold. However, you might be thinking “but, of course, they’re going to say that, they’re a ‘staging association’!” The National Realtor’s Association follows up

Selling Home After Moving In A home is generally bought with the intention of living there for a long period of time, but sometimes circumstances arise that require selling that home sooner than would have been planned.

Personal issues, job changes, illness, and other matters can all factor into whether the decision is made to sell a home, and a large part of that decision is often financially based.
