In reviewing a home inspection report this week, I saw where the inspector noted that a carbon monoxide detector is required near the bedrooms. Although I do believe they are very important, I don’t believe they are required here in Delaware by law. So, that got me searching. I found this link wi...
 I posed a question today here on Active Rain about home inspections to gain some knowledge about how other REALTORS approach a home inspection, i.e., do you attend them with your Buyers (or for your Sellers) and what your general take is on them. The HUD document “For Your Protection: Get a Home...
How your FHA purchase is affected by a flip A Buyer client is in the process of using an FHA mortgage to purchase a flipped property.

This living document has been modified over the years to incorporate new elements in society, in our industry, in the way we communicate.

Heading off on my first showing today, I was multitasking as usual. Calling ahead to make sure my clients and I had our timing in sync, I noticed the car beside me at the light. I found it odd that we both kept pace when the light turned green. More than once, I've had people comment on my predis...
I posted yesterday about loving the rain. But loving the wind? Not so much. A text arrived from one of my seller clients this morning.“Your sign is gone.”Sheesh.
