Popular online real estate marketplaces often offer some sort of home valuation tool that tells you what your house might be worth. You might not know it as a home valuation, but maybe by a catchy name for their estimates (hint: put a Z in front of estimates).

We understand that real estate is a large financial investment and you want to make sure you’re getting the best price possible whether that is buying or selling.

As we start the new year, you may be considering freshening up your home. Whether you are looking to update your home in order to sell or you’re just looking to spruce up your surroundings, one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to do so is with paint.

The past few years have been something else when it comes to selling your home. In a heavily weighted market, sellers were getting top dollar and then some for their homes with very few negotiations happening.
