The title may offend you but then again maybe you need to learn this subtle art...

Your sanity, happiness and success could depend on it
In my life, I have given a fuck about many people and many things. I have also not given a fuck about many people and many things. And those fucks I have not given have made all the difference...

Top 10 Red Flags To Look For When Buying A Home
Buying a home is an emotional, stressful, and big deal.  Often times a buyer is not as focused as they should be when viewing homes and can miss some pretty big things.

Significant red flags that are caught when buying a home should not just be brushed to the side and forgotten about.  They need to be addressed and/or repaired.  

Things such as pest problems, mold, amateur workmanship, and structural problems are just a few of the red flags that buyer's need to be on the look out for when shopping for a home.

Check out the top 10 red flags for home buyer's to look for at http://www.rochesterrealestateblog.com/top-10-red-flags-to-look-for-when-buying-a-home/

In addition to the top 10 list, you will find some additional resources from other top real estate blogs including +Anita Clark, +RESAAS | The Real Estate Social Network™, +Mark Brian, and +Bill Gassett!

So sad that people think Google is your friend or because it is on the internet it is true. This whole Google/fact thing may wind up be a very bad thing for actually finding out the truth...
From now on, the "truth" is whatever Google says it is

Great article for anyone selling a house!
 
Just there are real estate agents who think all the work is done when the house is up on the MLS there may be homeowners who are unaware that they also have a part in the marketing of their home while it is up for sale.  Knowledgable Realtors should be telling you up front the types of things you can expect during your home's time on the market and what they will need of you in order to have your home shine for buyers.

Miss some aspects of home marketing and you run the risk of getting no offers.

Read on for some more information on how to best market your home while it is listed for sale and be sure to check out the additional resources from +Anita Clark , +Lynn Pineda , +Bill Gassett , +Kyle Hiscock , and +Mark Brian .

Please consider socially sharing if you find this of value.

How should you be marketing your home while it is on sale? Keep up with repairs, cleanliness and tidiness and follow showings to see if the price is right.

The real estate profession is unique in that everyone is on call, but until better practices are put into place, the profession will suffer.
