3 Ways to Protect Your Home from Probate

After working hard for so many years, you might have purchased a home you are proud of. However, you might have heard about folks whose families were unable to get the family home after a parent’s death because it was tied up in court with probate issues.
As a parent and spouse, you probably want to spare your children from the expense and burden of probate court. Here are 3 ways to protect your home from probate so that it goes to the person or people you wish it to with as little delay as possible.

8 Super Home Selling Tips for Summer

Summer's one of the hottest home buying and selling seasons in most real estate markets.  It's the favorite season for families with children in school to buy and sell.  Summer of 2015 is finding low inventory of homes for sale in many areas.  The limited inventory can give seller's an advantage.  You still need to prepare your home for the market if you want top dollar.  These simple tips will get you off to the right start.
Curb Appeal is Sexy

5 Home Staging Mistakes To Avoid When Selling Your Next Place

You would be hard pressed to find anyone with more of an inclination toward DIY home staging than me. In fact, I can think of no better way to present a property for sale. There is evidence to suggest that a properly staged home can sell for more money and in a shorter period.
The only question is: Are you doing it right?
It’s relatively easy to find advice on how to become a better home stager, but sometimes the most effectively staged homes are founded on the things you didn’t do. Remember, it’s just as important to appeal to prospective buyers, as it is not to scare them away. The trick is to eliminate the mistakes so that the highlights shine even brighter. In other words, sometimes it isn’t about what you have done that resonates the most with potential buyers, but rather what you refrain from doing.
There is a right and a wrong way to stage a home. Instead of focusing on what you should do, I want to take a minute and shed some ...

Stumped about how to make your home stand out at the holidays for all the right reasons?

You don't have to clean out Home Depot's inflatable character aisle to make it festive. A few tips can take it from plain to just plain amazing.

1. Highlight your architecture

Have some great architecture to work with?

"Edging the roof, windows and doors makes your home's own charming features stand out big time," said House Beautiful.

2. Take advantage of your landscaping

Net lights make decorating so easy your little kids can do it, and when laid out over hedges, they bring a festive look with minimal effort and expense. If you have trees in your front yard, wrapping the trunks in net lights brings the beauty without the pain of having to weave lights around individual branches. Hanging icicle lights or snowflakes from random branches is a great finishing touch.

3. Spread the love

Gates, fences, front porches, and walkways are great opportunities to extend your d&eacut ...
