The Perfect Online Tool for Homeowners
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Not only does it signal the sign of the start of football season, it’s also one of the few times my utility bills go down. In September and October, most utility bills go down because it’s not hot enough to require A/C but not cool enough to turn the heater on. This reminded me of a tool I wanted to show all of you. It’s a website where you can import your utility bills and learn how to make your home more energy efficient. To learn more about this site, watch our latest video.

I am not an attorney and I cannot give you legal advice, but there is one law here in Michigan that home buyers should be aware of. As of early October, it is legal in our state for a homeowner to record buyers who tour their homes. They can use video or audio tapes to capture any comments you make about the house. That said, there are a few things you should avoid saying in order to successfully purchase the house. To learn more, watch this short video.

The market in Southeast Michigan is beginning to warm up, but we are suffering from a lack of inventory. Buyers are looking for specific types of properties. Open floor plans and large, private lots are what buyers are looking for. Overall, we need more quality homes on the market right now because inventory is low. Watch this video to see if your home is highly sought-after in our market! http://www.mihomechat.com/2015/03/southeast-michigan-real-estate-home.html
