Today Scott from HomeTeam joins me to answer key questions about the process.
Today I’m joined by Scott Irmscher, who’s here to answer a few key questions about home inspections. Scott has been involved with thousands of home inspections over the course of his 20 years in the business, so he’s definitely an expert in this area. If you would like to visit his website here it is.

Home inspections are visual inspections, and inspectors often don’t see everything. There...

Here's what today's market is like for move-up buyers.
What’s it like to be a move-up buyer in today’s market? Now, by ‘move-up buyer,’ I don’t necessarily mean that you’re moving up to a bigger house—it could be that you’re moving to a smaller house or what we call ‘right-sizing.’ Essentially, it means that you already own one home and that you’re ready to buy a new one. That can be a challenge in our market. Home prices right now are higher than I’ve ever seen them, and interest rates are low.
Most of us have to weigh two things in this circumstance:

Here are my main predictions for what’s coming for our market in 2021.
Looking back at 2020, who would have thought our houses would become this crucial to us? Last year we worked from home, schooled our kids at home, and our houses became the best restaurants (at least for safety reasons). We even learned to cook better! (At least… I tried).
2020 has also made it clear just how much technology has made buying and selling real estate easier. Between Zoom conferences, video walk-throughs, 3D Matterport home tours, and more, the amount of tech at our fingertips has never been as plentiful.

Purchasing a home of their own is the dream of most Americans, and it is important to have the necessary information when they finally are ready to begin searching for the right property. During the search, there will be many questions to consider, but the answers to these five questions are most important to a successful search for the right property.
1. Is The Real Estate Agent Familiar With The Area?
Finding the best real estate agent to help and guide while searching for a home is essential. The first step will be to contact realtors who are familiar with the area where the prospective buyer wishes to live. During the initial meeting with an agent, the client should not be afraid to ask questions. It is important that the agent is familiar with neighborhoods within the area, the schools, and...

Housing Market Positioned to Bring Back the Economy
All eyes are on the American economy. As it goes, so does the world economy. With states beginning to reopen, the question becomes: which sectors of the economy will drive its recovery? There seems to be a growing consensus that the housing market is positioned to be that driving force, the tailwind that is necessary.

We are excited about both of these homes in Calhoun!
First up is a fixer upper in Calhoun. Now what makes a fixer upper a fixer upper? It needs some work! Some houses need some love and some need some work. This one needs some work. So, what kind of work does it need?
It will need some up dated wiring, we know there is some type of plumbing issue but not sure exactly what is going on, and it does need cosmetic updates as well. But the pluses are really great in this home! The roof was put on around 2012. The HVAC and Hot Water heater is really newer. It is a tri-level home and has some really cool features to it. We don't have all the photos yet but here is the photo of the outside:
If you would like to schedule a showing for this weekend just respond back to the email and we will get you set up! Also, there is an Open House on Saturday from 2-4 p.m. if you would...
