I was reading a local magazine this morning and I ran across an article that was talking about how desperate sellers are becoming.

After years of hearing from successful sellers that they didn't have to do a thing to sell, they now need to understand how they can stand out from their competition.

  Many homebuyers frequently wonder, "If I am shopping for a home loan will my credit be affected each time a credit report inquiry is made?" It's a logical and intelligent question to ask; the answer is: not significantly, if the credit checks are done in a short period of time. When a credit ch...

It's interesting that in a recent Fine Homebuilding magazine, where they picked the 25 most important homes in America, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater graced the cover. And, not only does the house sit over water, but there's water running inside which is causing damage.Now, what does FLW have...

Have you noticed that home interiors now have 'Tuscany Gold', 'moss', 'eggplant' and 'chocolate' instead of the good old 'relocation beige.'Now, some of these colors are lovely. But having seen homes where every dining room is a claret, a burgandy, a merlot, I'm wondering if we aren't over-doing ...

I've been going to closings for years. In Illinois we have a CLOSING. No escrow for us.When I first started, a closing would last 30 minutes, at the most 45. The sellers had a few papers to sign as did the buyers. Money and keys were exchanged. And, they'd schedule closings every hour.Today? Most...
