Looking to beat the summer heat without sending your energy bills sky-high? Here are three savvy tips to keep your cool:

🔹Draw those drapes during the day. Block out the sun and keep the indoor temperature down.
🔹Fan it out! A little breeze can make a room feel significantly cooler.
🔹Swap the stove for the grill. Keep your indoors chill and your meals hot.

Each trick can make a difference, saving your wallet and the environment at the same time.

Buyers, you do not want to miss this essential document!

Understanding the seller’s disclosure, also known as a property disclosure, is an integral part of doing your due diligence as a buyer.

It’s a legal document provided by the seller that details the condition of the property. It helps you as the buyer make an informed decision and decide whether or not to buy the property. Most states require a seller’s disclosure as it supports both parties.

Buyers can decide whether or not they want to buy the property. And sellers will be able to protect themselves from getting sued by the buyers if something is found to be wrong after the sale is complete.

Your agent will guide you through the process of reviewing and understanding the seller’s disclosure so you can make the best decision for your real estate needs.

If you have any questions about this process, don't hesitate to reach out!
