For this, a pre-marketing team is an essential value-added service for an agent to bring to the table, and is the second thing you should ask a potential listing broker (right after the obvious question of how many homes he or she has sold.)

I often hear buyers proclaim that a condo fee is “too high” yet these same buyers don’t seem to know exactly what determines a condo fee. It is impossible to assess if the fee is “too high” without knowing the history of any “special assessments”.

Autumn has arrived??”leaves are falling and days becoming shorter. In the real estate market, fall is the time to prepare your home for the winter months ahead, and to assess your home for the spring market. To assess your home, I always recommend that you begin with your home's infrastructure, or its “bones.” To get a complete picture, start at the top (roof and attic) and finish at the bottom (foundation and cellar).
