Ready to De-Clutter? Avoid these 5 Mistakes!

Fall is a great time to de-clutter your home as you are preparing for the holidays and extra guests. However, all too often we fall prey to these mistakes as we begin the task. Let’s check them out to ensure we maximize our efforts and really make the de-cluttering task worthwhile.

When could a Home Buyer Forfeit Earnest Money?

Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or not, it’s important to understand the home buying process. When you’ve decided to purchase a home it’s a very exciting time.

While your potential home buyers are researching what they need to do to win a bidding war, you need to know how to effectively handle one.
Can you create a bidding war for your home?
