the question: We love the house, but it needs some repairs and the Seller cannot do them prior to closing. Can we just get a direct credit from the Seller on the settlement statement at closing?

Real Estate Closings *Affordable *Experienced *Accessible

the answer: Probably not, most all lenders will NOT allow a direct credit from the Seller to the Buyer on the settlement statement. Try to negotiate some Seller paid closing cost in the contract to offset the cost of the repairs.

“Many of our local brokers do not realize that Real Estate Weekly was started by Realtors for the benefit of Realtors so that we could have our own publication to turn to for our advertising needs. Because of Real Estate Weekly, we have been able to brand ourselves with local buyers and sellers and, at the same time, get our listings in front of the buying public with beautiful color photos of the homes we have for sale. In addition, Real Estate Weekly helps us hit all the popular websites with our listings to make sure buyers across the country see our listings as well.

Planning ahead and using new available technologies can help you design and prioritize your updates and projects. Get Inspired What does the ideal kitchen look like to you?

Improve your kitchen without renovation (StatePoint) The kitchen is perhaps the most functional room of any home, but often it doesn’t feel large enough or flexible enough. And great cooking starts with a comfortable kitchen. While renovating your kitchen may not always be practical, there are steps you can take to improve it without breaking the bank or your kitchen walls. Here are a few ways to make the most of your kitchen: Evaluate Your Kitchen It’s time to weed out the good, the bad and the ugly. When is the last time you did a thorough inventory of your kitchen

gadgets? After several years without an assessment, it’s possible you’ve acquired a substantial collection of electric openers, dicers, slicers and spinners. If all these tools help you cook, that’s fabulous. If not, they are simply taking up valuable cabinet, cupboard and countertop space. Take a look at what you have and eliminate anything that’s duplicative, broken or somehow unnecessary. Improve Functionality Re-think your appliances. These days, you don't need to settle for antiquated appliances that perform just one function. Innovations are making cooktops and

ovens more functional and versatile, providing greater opportunities for spatial kitchen layout. For example, you could pair a gas cooktop with an electric oven or install electric ovens side by side. Consider appliances from such brands as Verona, an Italian manufacturer that applies extensive cooking expertise to built-in ovens, cooktops and ranges. Inspired by classical Italian designs, their hand assembled cooktops and ovens offer a choice of fuel type so you can mix and match radiant, induction and gas heat sources. Information is available at Flexibility is also being built into today’s appliances. For example, ILVE cooktops come equipped with an exclusive, oneof-a-kind removable griddle that allows for numerous food preparation options on an all-in-one cooking surface. You can steam, grill, warm and more with the included griddle -- eliminating the need for additional space-hogging appliances like steam ovens and warming drawers. This is a great way to be a more flexible cook in a small amount of space. More information on flexible cooktops is available at Maximize Storage Creative storage solutions will increase your work area and cabinets, while affording more space to move around. For example, an over-the-door spice rack can give you more room to prep food. A wall-mounted wine rack that holds both bottles and glasses can free up cabinet space and reduce the furniture footprint of your kitchen. Magnetic panels on the wall can be used to store pots, pans, knives and metal utensils. When it comes to your kitchen, don’t settle for anything less than top-notch, flexible appliances and an ideal use of the space you have. Whether you’re a serious chef or a casual cook, your kitchen can benefit from key upgrades and a thorough organizational sweep.
