 Getting in Touch With the Outdoors on a BudgetIf you love the outdoors, you don’t have to avoid it just because you don’t have a significant budget. In fact, it’s totally possible to get back in touch with nature even if you have a very small budget. Whether you’re going by yourself, with friends, or with your whole family, here are a few ways you can get back into nature without spending a fortune.1.

 To Renovate or Not To Renovate Before You SellWhen thinking about selling, homeowners often feel they need to get their house ready with some remodeling to make it more appealing to buyers. However, with so many buyers competing for available homes right now, renovations may not be as vital as they would be in a more normal market. Here are two things to keep in mind if you’re thinking of selling this season. 1. There aren’t enough homes for sale right now. A normal market has a 6-month supply of houses for sale, but today’s housing inventory sits far below that benchmark. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), there’s only a 1.9-month supply of homes available today. As a result, buyer competition is high and homes are only on the market for about 21 days, during whi...

 Is This the Year to Repaint Your Home There’s nothing like a postcard-fresh paint job on your home to make it look and feel brand new again, but it’s unlikely you’ll need a new coat of paint every year. So how do you know when it’s time to repaint? Let’s walk through some of the biggest signs that it’s time to break out the buckets and brushes.   The Purpose of Paint Although paint is nice to look at, and the color you choose definitely tells a story and lends a mood to the whole neighborhood, paint serves another very important function as a waterproof barrier. For many homes, especially those that are older, there’s very little standing between the siding and the living space. This is why having a good paint really matters. Paint waterproofs that siding, and helps prevent moisture fr...

  Look Out for Pest Problems During a Home Search Just because you don’t see rodents and bugs during an open house doesn’t mean they’re not there. Instead of obsessing over the floors and gazing at crown molding, keep an eye out for signs of a potential pest problem. Knowing what to look for when it comes to droppings, holes and damages will lower your chances of buying a house with critters and creepy crawlies.1. Examine the FoundationsBefore entering the home, examine its exterior. Mud tubes along the foundation are often a sign of termites, which cause more than $5 million in property damage each year. Meanwhile, holes in the wood can signify a carpenter bee or ant infestation. If you don’t address these pests immediately, they can weaken the foundation and infiltrate the home.While...

How To Choose A Home InspectorYour agent will most likely have a shortlist of inspectors that they have worked with in the past that they can recommend to you. Here are some things to consider when choosing the right home inspector for you. 1. Qualifications – Find out what’s included in your inspection. It’s also important to know if the age or location of your home warrants specific certifications or specialties. 2. Sample Reports – Ask for a sample inspection report so you can review how thoroughly they will inspect your dream home. The more detailed the report, the better in most cases. 3. References – Ask for phone numbers and names of past clients that you can call to ask about their experience. 4. Memberships – Not all inspectors belong to a national or state association of home...
