Many people are asking themselves this question. So let’s talk about it!
After a relatively quiet winter, it’s likely that the real estate market will spring back to business in the warmer months.
But just because the market is right, that doesn’t automatically mean that you should sell your home. You need to make sure that selling your home is the right thing for your financial situation and your life.
If you’re ready for…
-a bigger or smaller home
-your next step in real estate
-a new location and neighborhood
Then selling this spring could be the right choice for you.

Worried about committing a real estate faux pas by talking to the neighbors?
It’s actually a great idea to talk to any potential neighbors for a house you want to make an offer on.
You’ll get a feel for the neighborhood by meeting people and you’ll be able to see if you like the neighbors!
Neighbors can have a huge impact on your happiness in your house so it’s worth the time and initial awkwardness to talk to the people around your potential new house.
All you have to do is politely introduce yourself as a potential buyer if you see a neighbor outside. They’ll likely be more than happy to answer any of your questions about the house and the area!
Ditch the harsh chemicals and unclog your pipes naturally using these steps!
Clogged sink and shower drains are a common occurrence for most of us.
But did you know that you don’t have to use harsh, corrosive chemicals to take care of those clogs?
Try these methods in order, and test the drain after each step.
Usually, the drain gets unclogged after using baking soda and boiling water in step one.
Plus, these methods are much better for your plumbing compared to those corrosive drain cleaners. Your pipes will thank you if you stick to these steps.
P.S. Save this post so you have it handy when your next drain gets clogged!
Pinterest is a great place to get inspiration for your home (or home-to-be). But when it comes to the execution, well, that’s when things get a little trickier.
So here’s a nudge: if there’s something on your “home inspo” board that you can do today, go do it!
Maybe it’s as simple as rearranging a display on your bookcase or switching the layout of your bedroom.
P.S. Send this to someone who definitely does this!
Stuck in the middle of wanting to buy a home and wanting to have a low interest rate?
When it comes to buying a home in 2023, you really have 2 options.
1) Wait until interest rates drop and see what kind of home you can get
2) Or buy the home that’s right for you now and refinance down the line
If you’re at a point in your life where you’re ready to buy a home and it makes sense for you to do so, the equity you build will make it worth the higher initial rate.
Remember: you’re not married to your interest rate. When rates drop in the future, you can refinance your mortgage and have the best of both worlds: a lower rate and a home that’s building your financial future!

Get ready to play the long game…
Because real estate is a long term investment! Even when you’re buying a home for yourself and your family, you’re making an investment in your financial future.
You have to build up your equity and let your property values rise over the span of years before you can cash out your investment.
But when you do wait and play the long term investment game, you’ll find that real estate is definitely worth the wait when you get that high return on investment or ROI.
When you focus on building your wealth through high ROI, long term investments, you may need to make some short-term sacrifices. Maybe you put off the new car for a year, or skip that vacation to Cabo once. These tradeoffs are so worth it when you cash out your real estate investment down the line!
