Lisa Loper of the Scott Loper Team shares an example why sellers need to be careful and not be drawn in by something that sounds too good to be true
There are many ways to sell a house: listing it with a REALTOR©, for sale by owner, the “We Buy Houses” quick sale businesses, real estate auctions, find a friend or relative willing to buy it ... When it comes to selling, there is no magic pill. Time and again, no one is going to pay more than market value for your home but you can be sure, many people will gladly take a home off your hands if they can get it for well below market value. As a seller, it is critical to know the true market value for your home so 1) you don’t end up sitting on it forever waiting for it to sell at an unrealistic price and 2) so you don’t “give it away” by selling it for significantly less than it is worth. Buyers need to be equally as careful so they do …

Energy efficiency doesn't exist just within the four walls of your home
Energy efficient homes don’t end with the structural and interior elements. One of the most important factors to operating a more energy efficient home is the landscaping around it. Not to mention that landscaping is more of a long term plan that one day will affect the re-sale value of the home. It’s a topic we’re familiar with this time of year, as we make our trips (and more trips) to the local home improvement stores looking for that ideal combination of plants, shrubs, trees, and grasses. With the summer months approaching, we’ll soon be looking at cooling costs that air conditioners and fans bring to our utility bill.
