First impressions last – this quote has been shared through the ages, and it is proven real. One’s first impression of a person, place, or thing would be their primary basis for judgment. For homeowners, having a good curb appeal is important to provide a positive first impression, not only with the property, but also with the people living inside... Continue reading

It’s probably going to be the most expensive thing that you ever decide to purchase, so it stands to reason that a little due diligence is required when you buy a house.
