Did you know that a great time to look for a home is when it’s raining, especially a heavy rain.  Shopping for a home during a storm allows you to see many things, where does the water run in the streets?  Is there standing water in the roads or yards?  Where does the water go coming off of the roof?  Are there active leaks in the ceiling?  When approaching standing water use caution as there could be a hole the water is pooling in.  Just a little food for thought, I hope everyone has a fabulous week.  Remember if you are thinking of buying or selling real estate anywhere in the world, I can help you and it does not cost you anything, give me a call and let me show you the way home!  Please visit my web site
