  I recently had a conversation with a Buyer about doing a home inspection. They had just called a family friend that is a home inspector because they wanted to do an inspection before making their offer. The inspector told them to wait until they have an accepted offer. While the traditional approach is to negotiate with the seller and make an agreement on price and terms and then do your...Read More

Hey Guys, curious as to what are the most common real estate scams? This is one of my pet peeves: I’ll sell your home or buy it myself, the guaranteed sale program. This one bugs me to the most. Sounds too good to be true right, well that’s usually the story. This is a bait and switch marketing program to win appointments.

A Stressful Move
