    1. Clean your refrigerator drip pan
    Did you know many refrigerators have drip pans? I did not. But as you can imagine from the name, it's a thing you really should be cleaning once in a while.

    FHA 203K Rehab Home Loan

    What is an FHA 203K rehab loan and what are the benefits?
    An FHA 203(k) rehab loan, also referred to as a renovation loan, enables homebuyers and homeowners to finance both the purchase or refinance along with the renovation of a home through a single mortgage. Instead of applying for multiple loans, an FHA 203(k) rehab loan allows homebuyers to purchase or refinance their primary home and renovate it with one convenient loan.

    Additional enhancements that are cost friendly include power-washing the home and replacing worn house numbers. If the front door looks like it needs an update, freshen it up with a new coat of paint. You can often find attractive colors discounted at your local paint store. 

    2. Use It Or Lose It
    Maximize space with the 90-day rule. Most buyers can’t see past clutter. It’s very important that sellers understand that the temporary removal of unnecessary and personal items is imperative if you want to sell your home quickly and at a desirable price. When decluttering your home for staging purposes, go through e ...
