Looking to Buy A New Home?

Hey Neighbors!

Are any of you in the market to purchase a new home?  Seeing signs like this Buy Homes Here? We recently assisted a friend to purchase a new home.  Previously we have purchased a home through an individual, but he chose to go through a realtor.  We still went with him to look at a variety of homes before he made a decision or offer.  He was looking for a reasonably priced home not far from ours.  He also did not want right on top of his neighbors.

He actually found the home without the realtors help, but then she stepped in and assisted with the entire purchase process.  She even visited with us one day while discussing the pros and cons of the home.  She was able to tell him exactly what repairs had been made recently and what appliances came with the home.  For this one the roof had recently been replaced.

A funny thing happened though!  He told the realtor just how much he was willing to offer.  Now, our friend has a tendency to re-think things after he has decided, so while waiting to hear back, he decided he should have offered less.  Imagine his surprise when the realtor had already done that.  She had decided that he could probably get it for a little less, since it had been on the market for awhile.  He was amazed!

Since then he has moved in and is completely happy!  He has made several improvements in the time since he actually moved in.  He has added a deck out back, which of course increases the value of the home.  He has also added two dogs to his family.  We actually dog sit occasionally for him.  Anyway, he was extremely satisfied with how the realtor assisted him in his purchase.  She jumped right in and helped him to get a good deal.  She also ran around a bit to get the paperwork signed and over with in a timely manner.

Would he use this realtor again?  I really think so.  Now, I know some people have horror stories over how a realtor treated them, but he really had a good experience and we would gladly use her in the future.  Have any of my neighbors had an experience with a realtor that they would like to share?  Feel free to do so in the comments!  See you all soon, At the Fence!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
