Throwing a Great Summer BBQ
The season for pool parties, block parties and friendly barbecues is here. 

Are you planning a fun summer BBQ or get-together this year? Here's how to make it a great one:
  • Keep it cool. Stock up on fans, fill up coolers with cold drinks, and crank up the A/C. Clean the pool if you have one.
  • Prep for bugs. Bugs can kill a party's vibe instantly. Invest in bug zappers, citronella candles and a few cans of bug spray.
  • Have options. Burgers and hot dogs are always a solid choice, but make sure to have a few options for vegetarians, vegans and kiddos, too.
Cheers to a great party!

Red Flags to Watch for on a Showing
Not every showing will turn out to be "the one." 

Want to make sure you don't make an offer on a dud property? Watch for these red flags:
  • Signs of poor care/maintenance. If there are obvious signs of poor maintenance, you can bet there are deeper, less visible ones, too.
  • Strange smells or odors. These can indicate pets, rotting food, mold or mildew (some of which can be dangerous!)
  • Bad neighbors. Trash on the yard next door? Cars all over the street? These all point to potentially bad neighbors.
Make sure to bring an agent along with you. They'll make sure no red flags go unnoticed.
