Sunday snooping time! They paid how much for that house?!?

 

Here are the local property transfers…happy snooping!

I am having problems with sourcing the property transfers again. The local Patch websites have changed formats and are not (as of yet) providing recent sales. I will have to find another source for each town. Hopefully, next Sunday, I will have it all worked out.

In the meantime, if your town is not individually represented, please check out the Master List shown below.

What kind of house should you live in?

Tradional HouseI woke up with a raging headache and a full schedule for today, so I decided a lighter post was in order.

I found a quiz on Houzz that, when taken, reveals the type of house in which the quiz-taker should reside.

I always take Houzz quizzes and my only problem with them is that sometimes the multiple choice answers do not offer an appropriate choice for me.

That said, I made do with the choices they offered and my quiz was actually pretty accurate.

I am suppose to live in a Traditional House…(no surprise there!)

You can take the quiz here.

Understanding the Role of a Realtor

buy:sold houseI read a lot of those articles that discuss why you should hire a Realtor.

Most of them say the same thing and not many of them are very enlightening.

Today I stumbled across one that actually outlined the role of the Realtor in a real estate transaction and it outlined the role WELL! That almost NEVER happens.

The article was written by Mary Boone and featured on Zillow’s Blog. I would have reproduced it here, but they did not allow that as an option.

The post is titled “Understanding the Role of the Real Estate Agent” and you can find it here.

Click the link and read it, it’s worth the 5 minutes.

Another thought about backsplashes

solid backsplashIn the past, I have written about backsplashes as art. You can see those posts here and here. I’ve also written about dopey backsplashes here.

Today I am bringing you an ideabook from Houzz which posits that backsplashes with no seams are the way to go.

I get the logic of that. No seams (or grout lines) to catch greasy air-born cooking particles.

That’s a smart observation.

The only problem is, that I am not sure I like the way it looks.

Hmmmm, good looks vs. easy clean-up?

That’s a tough one.

Find the ideabook here.

A subtle but awesome door…

 

If you sell this house, do you take the door with you?
