The Best Times to Buy and Sell a Home

When is the best time of the year to buy or sell a home? Here are some tips from real-life Real Estate Agents that will give you the advantage! JANUARY is the best month of the year to make an offer.

Sellers also tend to be more driven in January due to recent credit card bills from their Christmas spending; they may be feeling financially insecure.

Buying a Home: Sewer Line Inspections

When you are buying a home it is highly recommended that you obtain a home inspection prior to closing. A home inspection will reveal all the issues a home may have, including any traces of asbestos, termites, mold, lead, and radon. What many buyers are unaware of, however, is how important it is to get a sewer line inspection as well. Why is it so important to get your sewer line scoped when buying a home?
