November 10, 2016

We love our pets, whether they be dogs, cats, hamsters, capybaras, hedgehogs, or pygmy goats—but that doesn’t mean that they want to see said pets (or any evidence of them) when looking at a home they’re thinking of buying. “Pets are either an attractive distraction, so cute they distract prospective buyers from looking at the real estate, or completely the opposite—smelly, frightening, or otherwise off-putting,” says Diane Saatchi, an East Hampton, NY, real estate broker with Saunders & Associates.

October 25, 2016

What Is ROI? Return on Investment, Explained By Jamie Wiebe | Oct 25, 2016 "If you’re thinking of making some home improvements, you will want to understand a concept called ROI. What is ROI? It stands for return on investment—how much money you stand to get back on any particular renovation whenever you decide to sell your home.
