SWMAR is asking for your help to boost their fundraising for Suitcases For Kids. This local program helps foster children under the supervision of the Michigan Department of Human Services in Berrien, Van Buren, and Cass Counties. Many of the children have very little or no personal items that they can take with them when they are moved into foster care. Like all children they want to do what other kids do. They want to play sports, take music lessons or go to camp. So please plan to go to one of our local Give Back Nights at the following locations to support area foster children.
Michelle Kuiken, Berrien County DHS, sums up why this is so important “Your help allows our kids to feel normal in a very abnormal situation.”
Join us at Chili's July 11th from 11 am until close. Simply by eating out or having a drink, you can make an impact during a sad and confusing time for foster children.
Chili’s St. Joseph July 11- 11:00am – Close http://ow.ly/i/GKA9I

Sellers don't forget to budget for closing costs! Closing costs can vary widely by location, but you’ll generally pay closing costs of 5% to 10% of the home’s sales price. So, on a $300,000 home, you can expect to pay anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000 in closing costs. In most cases, these costs are deducted from your proceeds at closing. Check here for budget items: http://ow.ly/vNJi30kJh8u #SWMIrealtors #buyhouse #sellhouse
