The new year is a great time to improve your habits. In a previous article, I suggested six habits that can help keep clutter at bay in your home. Today we look at six more.

Home Buyer Tips: Preparing for the Home Inspection

Worrying about the home inspection is not particularly productive, but preparing a list of questions to ask the home inspector is not only proactive, but represents another step down the path to your dream home.
