Planning A Remodel? READ THIS!

By: Laura Cohron

When my husband and I inherited my grandmother’s house we knew we were in for a big and exciting project. We had never taken on anything like this before and had no idea where to start. Turns out you start by knocking all the walls down! We completely gutted our 4 bedroom 1 bathroom Cape house into an amazingly gorgeous 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bathroom Colonial.

Many homes built before the 1980’s were built with beautiful hardwood flooring that has been, at some point, covered with carpeting.  One Seller told me that she was surprised to hear that it would help the sale to remove it.  After all, she and her husband had installed it themselves over the hardwood when they moved in 20 years ago because it was “in” and thought it made the house feel warm.  Your house may feel warm in the winter, but do you ever wonder what is underneath that dingy dust collector?

And oh, also by the way, the owners might have to re-set up auto pay with the new company even though they just finished setting it up with the first one.

What Is Title Insurance?

By: Laura Cohron

 

A few weeks ago, I got asked by one of my clients, “What is this charge on my closing costs for the title insurance?” This is a question we receive frequently as there are often 2 charges for title insurance- one for Owner’s Coverage (optional) and one for Lender’s Coverage (required if you are getting a loan).
