When it comes to the purchase of real estate, no matter what role you play—the buyer, seller, lender or borrower, you want to make sure that all the instructions in the transaction have been followed before the money exchanges hands.

Best Colors for Selling

When selling your home, it is no longer just about your preferences but instead about trying to appeal to your buyer. Unfortunately, you can’t appeal to everyone’s senses but you can follow these rules outlined by Debbie Drummond when it comes to the exterior of your home. She states, “the color scheme of a house should be appropriate for its architectural style and allow it to be comfortable in its community.” When you update your home’s exterior with a fresh coat of paint, you are setting it apart from others on the market and will give your home a polished and clean look that will appeal to buyers.
