Cost-Sharing Programs/Grants For Masonry Patios, Rain Barrels, Gardens, and More From Phila. Water Dept!

December 3rd, 2015 by Kimberly Wingfield

One thing about Pennsylvania in general is that it’s usually pretty wet here.

October 11th, 2015 by Kimberly Wingfield

By now, most regular readers of this blog are well aware that I’m a big fan of rehabbing homes to give them a new lease on life – either on a DIY basis or with a 203k mortgage to roll all home-improvement related costs into the overall price of your house. Whether you’re rehabbing a […]

November 20th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

The rental market here in Philly is fairly robust, but there’s quite a bit of misinformation out there. Much like buying a home, there are some basic things that any prospective renters should be aware of before making any inquiries.

How To Update A Kitchen On A Budget!

October 16th, 2014 by Kimberly Wingfield

As I’ve mentioned before, kitchens and baths are often what sell homes. If you’re getting ready to put a house on the market, spending a little money ahead of time to improve the appearance of these areas can potentially reap you thousands more from a buyer.
