International Buyers – Want A Piece Of Philly?

February 16th, 2015 by Kimberly Wingfield

Philadelphia has always seemed like an underrated city in many ways, but the zeitgeist seems to be shifting. With nearby NYC and Washington DC becoming increasingly unaffordable for the average person, Philly remains a buyer-friendly oasis on the US East Coast – and there’s plenty of culture, nightlife, restaurants, and more that one would expect from a […]

December 22nd, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

This article has been reposted and updated since its original appearance on this blog in 2013.

September 12th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

It’s a sticky problem that a lot of people face – especially when they’re relocating from afar.

Great House – Needs Work? Check Out 203k Rehab Mortgages!

July 17th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

Home inspectors and insurance companies can be notoriously picky about what they consider “habitable” – and therefore mortgage-worthy. For instance, a little bit of chipped paint and a few missing tiles can be enough to disqualify a house from traditional FHA financing – which is why many sellers with fixer-uppers insist on either cash or […]

How To Consistently Save 7% Or More At Home Depot & Lowe’s!

May 16th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

While Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore discount outlets can be awesome for picking up the lion’s share of construction and decor materials alike at a rock-bottom price, there are some other things (paint, custom wood, mass quantities of certain materials,) that require a trip to retail outlets like Home Depot or Lowe’s.

Refinish Old Tubs & Tiles; It Saves A Fortune Over Replacement!

March 12th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

It’s often been said that kitchens and baths are what really sell homes – and I’ve found this to largely be true.

January 14th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

In short, purchasing a new house before you’ve sold your current residence can be extremely nerve-wracking, as the potential scenario of being on the hook for two mortgage payments at once is enough to stress out even the calmest client.
