Home selling: Correct pricing matters even in the hottest market! The longer it takes to sell a house, the less it sells for! If you are thinking about selling your home be careful to list with a broker who knows how to price a home correctly for your area; one who has actually been in the houses is a big plus!
Prices may be on the rise, but about 63 percent of homes sold at a discount compared to the list price in May.

Excellent post by +Bill Gassett     explaining why you need to get a permit when doing work on your house.
 
The Important Of Pulling Permits When Required
There are many homeowners who make the mistake of thinking they will avoid the permit process when making changes to their home.

This is an issue that can come back to bite you years later when it comes time to sell the home.

If a buyer or their agent asks if you have pulled permits for that new finished basement you can be sure they are going to want them in order to purchase the home.

In the article I discuss all of the issues surrounding the lack of building permits when it comes time to sell and the motivation for homeowners not to follow through in the first place.

What is the importance of getting permits for additions and improvements at my home? The lack of building permits can cause issues when selling a home.

+Debbie Drummond Thanks Debbie. Please feel free to share. Too many people don't understand how condos work. I would rather have my client know, even if it means not buying, than to end up unhappy.

I have been using Constant Contact e-marketing services since April 2006. It's a great product - easy to use and the support is excellent. The people are extremely helpful whenever I call - they are a breath of fresh air compared to the level of support (not!) that most companies provide these days. They are continually making changes to enhance the products they offer and adding useful new products. I highly recommend Constant Contact to anyone who wants to be successful in business.
