FIND YOUR DREAM HOME OR APARTMENT

So the take home on this article, (Which was somewhat confusing to actually find the 13 tips) includes a few commonsense items but then advice to adhere to consumerism and go against environmentally friendly practices. Using a clothesline my entire life, I not only save lots on energy costs, but my clothes last much longer so I can embarrass my kids by wearing vintage 80's clothing whenever I want! Not switching my countertops to granite, saves considerably because I don't have to hire a contractor to get the job done, then pay him or her again in ten years when the trend switches to a new design. Not dumping lots of chemicals on my lawn to extinguish every last weed means that our lawn is the one in the neighborhood that all of the birds come to to feed on worms and seeds and such so that I am always able to admire them.
Good thing that I'm not planning on selling my home soon, although every few months some real estate agent contacts us to see if we would be willing so sell since the place is in such demand.
Fish...are you and I related? We sure have the same expeiences growing up! Except, in the summers I boarded out as a farm worker at 1.00 a day plus room and board.
"The reason why houses are not worth as much as they should be is do to the Government"
Homes are not priced too low but far too high, just come to Vermont and see.
Our home which we bought for well under 100k in 1993 should have stayed
under 100k, not moved over 200k like it is now, without a single ungrade
like suggested here to boot. Granite in the kitchen, worry about food cost instead.
I joke about rent to own baloney at work, its not a joke for long.
Happy about our home gaining so much value, NO, it just means our kids
will not be may be able to own even the most basic "starter" home.
Maybe they can come up with a sub-starter pretend home.
Oh I forgot, no jobs as well, no food, job, or home, welcome to Vermont.
I had some concerns I do agree about the Foreclosure. I don't agree with the Renting aspect it all comes down to who you allow to rent your home and how invested you are with it! If you have a property management then they should be invested in it with you. Renting can be a really good thing if that's what you want to do but it also takes a lot to keep up with it. Renting to someone is like having a JOB you have to be committed. Otherwise you will be known as a slumlord. I do however agree with the Fencing, and Repairs but I think that, that is something that is a curtsy, thing if you want your home sold fix it first before you sell it otherwise plan on it being sold for less than you willing to be paid less than what your asking for! The clothing line is a little different and I am sure not everyone would agree with me but I dry only certain things on my line that I have They are easy fixes to take down and is something to do yourself! I don't dry my underwear or civvies outside but I do dry my blankets, towels shirts and pants (sometimes) but really is it comes down to maturity levels really, We all know people wear them they are just not seen! If you are someone selling a house I would suggest the obvious options like Maintenance, Things that are easily changed. There is someone who wants your house just as much as you liked it when you first bought it. I would go as far as changing everything. Keep up on the house until it is sold. Realtors are there to help you but they are just like your regular sales men and women they do what they got to do to get theirs so find a creditable Realtor to help you someone that has gotten good reviews DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
Be nice! I don't know why some feel it necessary to call names, the slides are there and work very well. I am thinking of selling my home and this helped. Thank you!
Deb the realtor, I agree, you just have to read folks. They show photos as an example, TG, and I'm glad they added one for stigma, I may not have gotten that one, lol. AND what finding someone has to do with this article is beyond me... come on ppl, get real!!
Very disappointing and very annoying. Where is the info that
