Landscaping Hints To Help Sell Your Home

One of the best ways to get people to stop when they see your “For Sale” sign is to have a fabulous curb appeal. What your home looks like on the outside can make or break a potential sale. With a little landscaping maintenance and some TLC, your yard could have buyers excited about what the inside has to offer.

Giving yourself some time to get your yard in shape would be to your advantage, so don’t wait to start the night before a showing.

Why Your Business Needs a Newsletter

In today’s digital climate, many businesses are starting to wonder if they should opt out of their newsletters. Some believe that social networking alone is enough to reach clients. However, this can be a mistake, as there are numerous benefits to newsletter marketing. Here’s a look at why your business needs a newsletter.

The Benefits

A company newsletter is a powerful tool with the potential to boost sales, strengthen loyalty, and increase brand awareness. While social media can also be used towards those ends, it is a completely different tool in your arsenal. This is becoming increasingly important, because as algorithms change, direct marketing through these sites may turn out to be more difficult for some small businesses. The newsletter is about delivering specific content to consumers who want to hear from you. It is also delivered directly to the inbox or mailbox of your customer.

Getting a Great Deal on a Short Sale

Getting a Great Deal on a Short Sale

The housing market is heating up and home buyers are looking for good deals. When you spot a too-good-to-be-true price on a house, chances are it’s a short sale. Buying a house that is a short sale can be rife with problems, but if done correctly, it could net you a sweet deal on a new home.

What is a short sale?

short sale is when a house is sold for less than what is owed on the mortgage against it. It can take longer to close a short sale because it requires the lender that holds the mortgage to “forgive” what is owed beyond the sale price of the house. While it appears that the mortgage company gets the bad deal in this situation, it can be more cost effective for all parties to have a short sale than allow a house to go into foreclosure.
