I don't often gasp while reading a news article, but I did with this one.  Apparently a woman was sexually assaulted on a subway train outside of Philadelphia.  Horrible, right?  But not surprising in today's world.What astonished me was that this occurred over a period of 27 stops on the subway... and (and this is the kicker)... there were other passengers on the car who were watching, and recording the event with their phones.SEPTA Transit Police Chief Thomas Nestel III, seen through window at left, stands by following a news conference on an El platform at the 69th Street Transportation Center, Monday, Oct. 18, 2021, in Philadelphia, following a brutal rape on the El over the weekend.The woman was initially groped by the man, and eventually raped by him in the presence of others (and...

Your decision to buy a home will have a major impact on every area of your finances—including your credit store. But according to a recent study from LendingTree, buying a home has less of an impact on your credit than you’d think.According to the study, in the four to six months following a mortgage, credit scores, on average, aren’t likely to fall more than 20 points on average. And even if your score does drop more than 20 points, it will typically bounce back to pre-mortgage levels within a year. The Takeaway: So, what does this mean for you? If you’re thinking about buying a home—but are feeling a bit nervous about how the mortgage will impact your credit—rest easy. Taking out a mortgage shouldn’t impact your credit too much—and even if you see a drop, your score should bounce back...

The housing market is hot in a number of areas of the country. Home prices seem to be skyrocketing with interest rates staying relatively low when compared to other years.

Not all homeowners want to put a large sum of money into their home if they are considering selling. The beauty of this is that there are a number of improvements that can be made on a budget. The following are tips to get your home ready to sell on a budget. Refinish The BathroomsLooking into bathroom finishing in Raleigh can allow you to see the possibilities of your bathroom simply by having it refinished.

Can you imagine your home being haunted by the ghost of a famous person?  I am not really sure if I believe in ghosts but they kinda fall into the same categories as UFO's.  I don't see any reason why they do not exist.  SOUntil I make the trip to the hear after and report back.  I do not see any reason why not to believe in ghosts especially if the likes of Sir Winston Churchill have seen them.  If you could pick one ghost to see, who would it be? #thehelpfulagent #ghost #home #listreports #houseexpert #ghosts #haunted #spookyszn #halloween #realestate #realestateagent #realtor

This is  great blog by Shayne Stone for us here in the rain.  Homeownership is still a crucial part of the American dream. For those people who own a home (and those looking to buy one), its clear that being a homeowner has considerable benefits both emotionally and financially. In addition to long-term stability, buying a home is one of the best ways to increase your net worth. This boost to your wealth comes in the form of equity. Equity is the difference between what you owe on the home and its market value based on factors like price appreciation. The best thing about equity is that it often grows without you even realizing it, especially in a sellers market like were in now. In todays real estate market, the combination of low housing supply and high buyer demand is driving home va...

Residential Real Estate: A Pragmatic View There are many moving parts in preparing a property to sell, including hiring a seasoned agent that gives solid, up-to-date advice, successfully markets and lists a home to get it sold. An evaluation sets the list price, consisting of a search on the local Multiple Listing Service of similar sold properties. A Comparable Market Analysis gives up-to-date, local market value. Buyer agents must possess a strong work ethic while putting clients interests above their own plus remain focused when researching properties by staying within the allotted budget. Negotiation is key in determining accepted terms and requested repairs. Plus, referring a list of capable affiliates that provide good communication, practice confidentiality and ultimate care.  A ...
