Radon, and Lead Paint, and Stairs! Oh my!



May 27, 2010What to expect during your Home Inspection. One of the things that you will do after you go into the contract has your home inspected.  Everyone that I have talked to about buying a home told me that this is one of the most important parts of the process.   It is your chance to make sure that there are no big problems lurking behind that fresh coat of paint. Pick your poison: choosing...

The Family Who Called House: In other words, making a second offer.



May 17, 2010Now that we have gone through this process a few times, I have realized that making an offer as a first time home buyer can be broken down into four stages: Stage One: This is The One: we will grow old in this house.

A Tough Lesson for the First Time Home Buyer



May 5, 2010The One that got Away We found our house! We went back and saw it again yesterday, to make sure it was as good as we thought it was. It was better. Our exclusive buyer’s agent told us that this was a really good deal, but I wasn't sure. I had only seen a few houses (it was the second house we saw), so I thought we might find something better. I checked the house on Zillow.com (which said the...
