Dual Agency Doesn’t Benefit Consumers

We cannot represent both parties effectively.

Asking clients to sign an agency disclosure form isn’t enough. You must explain what dual agency is and why it’s problematic.

RE/MAX and Redfin Exclusive Partnership Terminated

That was quick! Smart move!

RE/MAX withdrew today from its corporate partnership with Redfin, a deal only just announced in March.

How I Staged It: The Makings of a Master Retreat

Right now, listing homes is a daily event, and that I must instruct the sellers on what to do their homes to have the home sell quickly and for the most money. Think new home models! No screens in windows and sparkling clean windows! Curb appeal with fresh door paint, power wash, and mulch. I have an amazing landscaper, that takes care of the exterior landscaping without even telling him what to do. Remember, this is not your home once we put it on the market, we want it to be the home everyone wants! Remove clutter and extra furniture, be careful on what color you choose to paint, squeaky clean, no personal pictures, and updated light fixtures will be a plus too!

 Learn design touches that make the owner’s suite exude relaxation and sophistication.

Must-Have Design Ideas to Help Sell Your Homes

A powerful selling tool is a home that functions smoothly and saves precious time and labor for the home owner. These options cater to today’s busy lifestyle.

Why you shouldn’t choose spray foam insulation over fiberglass

Beware of foam. When we were building our home, foam was all the craze, I built a "fake wall", foamed it with the product, set it on fire. Definitely eye opening! The foam wall burned quickly, and the fumes were noxious! I passed on the $23K bid, and used a spray of rock wool and paper, at around $7k. No regrets. Feel free to reach out to me, if you have questions. I have the experience to help!

Energy savings count, but a healthy, and safe home is so important!

There are some wonderful things about spray foam insulation, but the price in health and embodied carbon is just too high.

MedCottage - Video Tour

Was out showing 2 generations homes to move together. A real challenge! Each parent has a disability and they do not share bedrooms, and then we have the adult children, caregivers who want a master retreat. Two separate homes on one parcel seems to be the only way, as the pets do not get along as well. Look at this video. No one takes better care of your parents than you!

Hard Financial Lessons Learned From The Government Shutdown

Yes, this was a hard lesson. I just reminded a first time buyer, that this event was a wake up call for everyone. You need savings to get you through the hard times. Someone said, "life is not a straight line", you need to be prepared. Interesting topic, a hobby job. What would you do, or do you have a hobby job?

The Government shutdown is nearing its fourth week, and the spotlight is on those who will miss a paycheck. Their plight is very real, but not unique to them. If you are one of the millions of Americans unprepared for a personal financial setback, there are steps to prepare for the next one.

When a sale of a business or investment property results in a gain, the seller is typically taxed on that gain during the year of the sale, even when the gain was generated over many years.
