Getting to Green. By making older homes and buildings more energy efficient, you make a smart investment. Buildings that save energy sell faster and for more money. They cost less to run--cutting your utility bills. They are healthier and more comfortable to live in--with less mold and fewer allergens...preventing drafts and hot and cold rooms.

I got rid of cable so I have never seen their show. I did read about them in the NY Times. I hate them because they give my clients crazy expectations. Buyers walk in every house and they want to knock down walls and redo everything--just like The Property Brothers. I'm going crazy! I would love...

Lots of sellers don't have $2,000 to $20,000 to get their homes market ready. Like it or not, in our post HGTV world, only foolish sellers say "AS IS" and do nothng. It doesn't cost anything to tackle the basics. This is the least a seller should do: #1.Be ruthless about getting rid of 1/3 to 1/2...
