A Rent-Back Agreement Helps Some Havasu Home Sellers

Buying a home while simultaneously trying to sell your home sometimes comes down to timing. In a seller's market (like here in Lake Havasu), you may sell your home quickly.

But, if you see candles, wax warmers, and plug-ins in every room giving off a heavy scent, these could be warning signs that the seller wants to cover up some nasty smells. And those smells will be there for you to deal with once you take ownership of the property.
Bad Tiling Job
Check out the backsplash and tiles in the kitchen and bathroom. Look for crooked, uneven, or wide gaps in between tiles. In new construction, this may indicate poor craftsmanship. In existing homes, it could mean a bad DIY job. And that may mean spendin. ...
