Cap rates are a great tool for comparing properties, but they don’t tell the whole story! You also need to account for financing costs, management expenses, and more.

October 2022 - Jean-Luc Andriot - 5-Year Rule  for Jean-Luc Andriot blog 102022

Scent has a powerful impact on our emotions—and it can make or break how potential buyers react to your home.

That’s why it’s essential to make sure your home smells its best before an open house or showing. Here’s how:

- Give it a good scrub. Wipe down all surfaces, paying special attention to the kitchen and bathrooms. Use neutral-scented products whenever possible.

- Take out the trash. Empty all trash cans, even well-sealed ones, to keep any smells from escaping. Plus, no one wants to see your garbage!

Deciding whether to jump into the housing market or rent instead is rarely an easy decision – especially if you’re a first-time homebuyer. But in today’s whirlwind market, you may find it particularly challenging to pinpoint the best time to start exploring homeownership.

A real estate boom during the pandemic pushed home prices to an all-time high.1 Add higher mortgage rates to the mix, and some would-be buyers are wondering if they should wait to see if prices or rates come down.

But is renting a better alternative? Rents have also soared along with inflation – and are likely to continue climbing due to a persistent housing shortage.2 And while homebuyers can lock in a set mortgage payment, renters are at the mercy of these rising costs for the
