Getting Started Is Tough...
Especially for first-time homebuyers.

Where do you begin looking? How much can you afford? Making the big financial decisions is hard enough. Not understanding how the whole process works makes it even harder.

Selling Your Home..
It�s not any easier

Selling a home might seem deceptively simple, UNTIL you're faced with selling your own. Just a matter of placing an ad in the paper or the Internet, right? If only it were so simple! It's every bit as complex as buying a home.

Are You the Independent Type?
Do you like to go it alone?

When it comes to buying your first home, you can learn a lot on your own, but some of us would rather not start from scratch.

When it comes to selling your home, the choice is whether to do-it-yourself (FSBO: for sale by owner), or let an agent sell it for you. Only about 15 percent of successful home sellers have the time or chutzpah to go it alone, the other 85 percent use a knowledgeable agent.
