My neighbor came over to my house the other day looking frantic.  She started talking immediately as she saw me.  "My water heater broke" she said out of breath, "and now there are 50 gallons of water leaking down the inner walls and floors of the house."  That next morning, as the forth workers ...

How long has the property been on the market? If it's getting a little stale, it might be ripe for a lower offer, experts say. Likewise, find out if there's been a price reduction and when it happened. Why are the owners selling? The agent showing the house is likely to remain mum on this one. Bu...

PHOTOS:  I have heard many legitimate reasons why sellers don't like to show a lot or certain pictures in their listing.  Some sellers want to keep their privacy and/or have valuables they don't want in photos.  The problem with providing little or no photos is this may be construed as a red-fla...
