How to effectively stage a home

Those looking to sell their homes in California or any other state are encouraged to think like a buyer would when staging their properties for sale. Doing so can help create an emotional attachment between the buyer and the home. That attachment may result in offers that are up to 20% higher than those made for homes that aren't staged or staged well. The first step in the staging process is to clean and get rid of clutter.

Lower interest rates failing to spark home sales

On average, borrowers will pay a fixed interest rate of 3.82% for a 30-year mortgage. Generally, when interest rates are low, home sales are high. However, there has been a curious lack of excitement among borrowers in California and throughout the country. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, there was a drop in mortgage applications during the first week in June. Furthermore, the National Association of Realtors reported that pending home sales fell in April.

The similarities between golf and real estate

Being a commercial real estate agent is a lot like being a professional golfer. This is because agents in California and elsewhere will be working for themselves but will also need a team to help them. This team will provide market research, help with marketing and provide other resources an agent needs to succeed. Like golf, it is important that real estate agents act with integrity at all times.

Millennials seek affordable homes

Many California residents in their 20s and 30s would like to buy a home but may run into difficulty due to rising home prices in some areas. While there has long been a maximum real estate suggesting that "location, location, location" is the most important thing when buying a home, the cost of living in some cities is more than many couples and individuals can afford.

Do you have to let a service dog into your restaurant?

Even if you are not a dog lover, you can probably still appreciate the skills trainers can teach a dog. Beyond basic obedience and circus tricks, a dog can learn to perform valuable services for humans, especially those with illnesses or injuries that leave them disabled. For many, having a dog means regaining mobility, independence and opportunities. For others, a well-trained dog can protect them from harm and allow them to live a normal life.
