Ask Your Agent the Right Questions

The odds are the day will come when you need to speak to a real estate agent to help you sell your home. When that day comes, you want to be sure you have the knowledge you need to choose someone who has the background and skills to represent your interests, meet your needs, and make the process a positive experience.

They typically become agents who list homes and are a 'Seller's Agent' or find homes for their clients and are 'Buyer's Agent.'  You'll find that many agents have experience on both the buying and selling side of the situation, but when you are selling a home, it is optimal to work with an agent who has dedicated most of their time working with sellers.

Supersizing Small Living Spaces

Fortunately, there are some simple tricks you can try to supersize your small space. Most of these tricks are a matter of changing perspective rather than opening up square footage. Before you try them, consider a real effort to declutter first. After you declutter, have fun and use the tactics listed below to maximize your living space.

Are you looking for a home that is close enough to stroll to nearby attractions?
