Bathroom renovations are so important when either selling or buying a home. Here are a few tips for renovating a bathroom on a budget! This first photo shows a typical style bathroom we see in so many homes!

These are some very cool ideas how to blend indoor and outdoor space for a home. Worth a look for sure. Adds such an impact to a home and makes for great entertaining space or just relaxing!
My clients are always asking me how to create that mysterious seamless connection between an indoor and outdoor kitchen, and vice versa. You may be thinking, “What on earth does that even mean? Does it mean I always leave my doors open? Or fill my kitchen with potted plants?” Creating a true connection between indoor and outdoor areas goes a step further than those two ideas and enters the realm of clever design, especially when it comes to the k...

When Google-ing can hurt your home sale!

I was looking for reliable real estate articles about fixes that pay off for a seller. And boy was I surprised at what I found! One article published on a site that I know would garner a lot of attention had what they referred to as best kept real estate secrets. At the top of the page was... find out what your house is worth, then lower it by 15-20%. The premise being this would most certainly get you multiple offers, even in a down market. 

I am not buying that, not in my market anyway. What it might get you is a full price offer... or a bit above. 

Price it right, for condition, for location, for local market conditions. And please... trust your agent before you trust what is out there on the web!

Who really likes moving day? Here are some real simple tips to help keep moving day as easy as it can be. I especially like the tip to load heavier boxes first if you are loading the truck yourself, for balance.

This is very disturbing news. Although telling someone they are not able to qualify for a mortgage is not fun, why would we ever, ever want to repeat what brought the economy to its knees? George Souto does an excellent job explaining what is going on here about the possibility of lowering credit standards for mortgages. 

In the words of Pete Seeger:
"When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn?"

This is a great post about getting pre qualified BEFORE you go out looking for a home. There is nothing to take the wind out of a buyers sail than finding out what they thought they could afford is actually out of their reach. Spirit Messingham from Arizona has made it very simple to understand! And it not only applies to Arizona, it is true here in Connecticut and everywhere else as well! Pre qualify first, look at homes second!

This is an awesome article explaining how much the interest rates can affect the affordability of a home. A move of 1% either way of the interest rates can actually affect your buying power by $50,000. And that can mean the difference between the house of your dreams or we bought this house only because it was all we could afford.

Maximum Real Estate Exposure just proves Bill Gassett's amazing understanding of how important marketing is when selling a home. But his knowledge and expertise does not stop at marketing. He has certainly proven that he understands the real estate market inside and out. Bill works tirelessly for his clients and his efforts pay off. Bill has been there for me too, answering questions that I have had about marketing, showing me how best to highlight my listings and myself. And he also agreed to an interview about short sales for my blog, which to this day is still getting hits. Anyone in the Boston Metrowest area thinking of buying or selling couldn't do better than to contact Bill Gassett. Thank you Bill, you are a true professional and I am pleased and proud to be associated with you!
