Great point Casey. You can throw in grow ops as well. This site is legal but Canada's laws are changing, for the big money which means illegal  grow ops may also be on the rise.  http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=310792

Things to Consider When Purchasing a Short Sale
Buying a short sale is very different than a standard real estate transaction. When buying a short sale the seller needs to get approval from their lender for the terms of the conditions in the offer in order for the sale to occur.

Given the fact there is a 3rd party involved it can complicate what was a simple transaction into something more complex.

+Kyle Hiscock does an excellent job of analyzing what you need to know from a buyers perspective when purchasing a short sale.

From hiring a buyers agent who understands short sales to knowing the times frames involved to realizing the sale might not even happen. Take a look at all of this and more in Kyle's article.

Buying a Home Can Be Very Emotional
As real estate agents buying and selling homes for us comes with a certain level of stress but typically no where near as much as it does for a buyer.

For us a real estate transaction becomes second nature. Once you have done enough deals you learn to deal with all the ups and downs.

Home buyers are not afforded that luxury especially if it is their first time.

Take a look as +Lolly Spindler of +HouseHunt Agents provides some advice on how home buyers can increase the odds that they will have a smooth and stress free transaction.

Top Home Inspection Issues to Avoid When Selling Your Home!
Selling a home can be tricky business if you are not well prepared ahead of time. One of the biggest hurdles in a real estate transaction is the home inspection.

More transactions fall apart at the home inspection than at any other point in a real estate sale. This should give you pause to know just how important it is to make sure you have squared away any major issues in your home.

When you are selling there are certain issues that can crop up in a sale that will be taken very seriously by a home buyer. In fact some of these home sale problems are enough for a buyer to want to terminate a sale. Do you know what they are?

Here is a quick summary of some of the top home sale issues:

1. Structural issues
2. Termites and other pests
3. Drainage/water issues
4. Mold
5. Radon
6. Wiring/Electrical issues
7. Plumbing issues
8. Well water issues
9. Asbestos
10. Lead paint
11. Roofing issues

There is no question that any one of these problems or a combination of them could derail your home sale. In the article I take a detailed look at each issue. You will find out the what kind of issues each of these things creates during the sale and how you can deal with them.

If you want you sale to go more smoothly it is never a bad idea to have a pre-inspection before you put it on the market.

Tips On How to Move Smoothly
You have listed your home for sale, procured a buyer and are heading to the finish line when you will hand over the keys to your home to a buyer.

The real grunt work has just begun as you have to carefully plan how to move. Moving can be a very stressful event. There are not many who actually look forward to moving. It is a lot of work and often times comes filled with stress.

In the article I provide some moving tips that will hopefully take off some of the stress before, during and after the move. Moving is really a three step process with the preparation before and after the move being just as important as the actual move.

If you are moving for the first time it can be very challenging and easy to make mistakes. The advice given will try to minimize some of the more common moving mistakes that other people don't think about.

Take a look and hopefully some of this moving advice will help.

The gals at Double Take Salon & Body Wise Massage are the best! Took my daughter there today for a little "princess" time, and they did not disappoint. She asked if she could come back again, about half an hour after we walked out the door! Highly recommended for service, personality, and a welcoming atmosphere.

National Fleet Graphics recently put some new vinyl lettering on my company truck, and I have to say that it was a great experience. They were prompt in all of the communications prior to ordering, had some great ideas (even for my small project), and did a fantastic job! The cost was very reasonable for the quality of work and the FAST turn around time...thank you, I'll be sure to recommend you to folks I know!

I had the opportunity to work with Beth on my video about insulation in a home, and it was a great experience. Despite my attempts to back out of doing a video, Beth was calm and helped me work through the nerves as she took a short marketing video of what I do during an inspection. Her professionalism was evident as we just stood and talked about what I found, and I hardly noticed that the camera was running. Beth edited together the video and some still photos of the inspection, along with incorporating my company info to create a fantastic marketing tool for me. The day after she optimized and posted the video, it shot to the first page of Google for the search terms. Great job Beth, and thank you!
