California Wildfire Scams

It's sad that people would do this, but they invariably do, and vulnerable people are victimized again. These insidious scams are sometimes difficult to spot up front, and the scammers have become pretty adept at appearing like people who genuinely want to "help".

If you're selling your home, you have lots of decisions to make and probably no shortage of advice on what to do. Here's advice about some major mistakes to avoid when selling your home:

Selling Your Home

As the above picture illustrates, one of the major mistakes homeowners often make when they're selling their home is failing to see the clutter in a room. It happens slowly - over time, and it may seem like the chaos is orderly and completely under control to you. But potential buyers often see this kind of clutter and two things happen - and both of them are bad for you: 1) They are left with an impression that this space is small, cramped, and even dark and uninviting, and 2) They fail to visualize themselves in that space, which is the opposite effect you are

If you're thinking of remodeling your home, it can be a very rewarding - and even a fun project to tackle. It can also be disappointing in terms of your return on investment (ROI), so careful planning and market research is not a bad idea.

In general, if you remodel a room or even your whole house and you plan to enjoy it for many years to come, then the financial return is probably much less of an issue for you. However, it's not uncommon for homeowners to
