Whether you’re selling your home or looking to buy a home, it’s important to know the reasons why the deal may not work out in order to plan in advance. We’ve made a list of our top five reasons so you can do what you can to avoid them! 

1. The home didn't appraise for the contract price

In a market like ours where there are so few homes available, it’s very possible for a buyer to get into a multiple offer situation. In that case, if you really want the home, it’s important to offer your highest and best. But what happens if the home doesn’t appraise for the agreed-upon contract price?

It's that time of year again! Although many of us dedicate time each day to maintaining a clean home, there are just some things that get put off. Now’s the time to dive head first into deep cleaning—but don’t worry, you won’t have to tackle these again until next year.

1. Let the light in

Wash the windows inside and out, clean the blinds, dust any light fixtures and replace any burnt-out bulbs. If curtains are feeling dusty and dingy, start at the top with a handheld vacuum and make your way down each panel. If they’re machine washable, go for it as long as it’s on cold and gentle cycle.
