Sign, Sign Everywhere a Sign

Sign, sign everywhere a sign We all know this song, and it couldn’t be more accurate and appropriate this time of year in the Greater Oakland County area.  As a Realtor the signs are not only an annoyance but also make it very hard for my buyers to find the property as the yard signs are buried around in the mass of political signs. I’m not clear if the home buyers are offended or if the political signs have any impact on their choice of neighborhoods in the Greater Oakland County area, but some ask me more details about the …

A Condo or Townhome In Mind

pdseoadmin Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Homeownership can be a great investment that also gives people a sense of stability and control. Yet, many first-time buyers don’t have the time, interest or budget to handle a home with a yard. Condominiums, co-operatives and townhomes are three options available to newbie home buyers seeking an alternative to single-family dwellings. Advantages Daily life in a townhome, condo or co-op can be less taxing — both in terms of lifestyle and expense. Lacking a yard and living in a multi-unit complex allows owners to spend time away from home without much worry about upkeep or security. The “lock and leave” …

Homes by Schools

pdseoadmin Blog Leave a Comment

Homes by Schools seem to be one of the most important criteria for Home Buyers with children. The difficulty for us as Realtor’s is that we have to be very careful in the discussion of this school verses that school when it comes to advise to our home buyers. It is unethical to discuss our opinions regarding schools and school choices for a home buyer in a particular neighborhood, so I thought these tips may help home buyers and agents alike to share with their home buyers so they may gather the proper information and plan ahead when choosing schools …
