If you are an animal lover, a feathered or furry friend can make your home feel more welcoming. However you may find that your neighbors do not share that opinion. If you have an animal friend in your home, you can follow a few easy rules to live peacefully with neighbors who may not be animal fans.

First of all, respect the fact that some people are genuinely afraid of animals, especially large dogs. Train your dog to avoid jumping on people, large and small. And, when your animal-free neighbors invite you over, leave your pet at your home. Although Fido or Fluffy may be part of your family, your hosts probably will not be expecting any additional guests, especially in the form of animals.

When out for a walk with your pet, keep your dog on a leash

Gardening is more than a popular trend, it's also just plain fun to grow food at your home. Touted as a step towards self sufficiency, gardening can save you money and has other perks, such as the fact that homegrown veggies and herbs simply taste better.

If you’re a novice gardener but would still like to try out your green thumb, a small herb garden is a good place to start. If your kitchen has lots of light, you can start with a few favorite herbs in pots. Basil, parsley, and dill all grow well in containers.

Tomatoes are another good plant to test in your home garden. They grow well in containers, so they’re great if you’re new to gardening or if you don’t have a lot of outdoor space. Even homeowners and apartment dwellers with small patio

Are you thinking about selling your home yourself?

Before moving forward with your plan to list your home as “for sale by owner”, it’s important to realize all of the pitfalls which come with FSBO so you don’t regret selling your home yourself

Home Price  

The first pitfall which you may experience with listing your home yourself is setting the correct price for your home.

Although you may be able to look online to see what your home is worth, some of the Real Estate listings which are online may be inaccurate or already expired, so it’s very possible to price your home too low, or too high based on the data you found online.

TRID Changes for Mortgage Borrowers

If you’re in the process of buying a home right now your mortgage lender will most likely have referred to TRID.

TRID stands for TILA/REPA Integrated Disclosure, both are acronyms for the Truth in Lending Act and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act.

Making Mortgages Simpler 

Thankfully TRID is going to remove

One of the top questions we’ve received from homeowners over the years is “do I have to make structural repairs to my home before selling?” and the answer to this question is both yes and no.

Why You Should Make the Repairs

If your goal as a homeowner is to sell your home for the most money then yes, you should make the repairs to your home.

Before saying yes to making repairs to your home before selling it you should hire a contractor or professional to inspect the area of your home that needs work because they will give you an estimate on the work which needs to be done.

It’s also important to get the work done on your home since buyers are going to insist on a home inspection anyway and eliminating the potential “drawbacks” of

The answer is: location, location, location, of course, but why does location matter?

School District
