Structuring a repair credit

A few years ago a reporter from the Detroit Free Press asked me what happens when an inspection uncovers serious problems with a home.

I described to her the 4 distinct methods to deal with issues that come up and she put those four in an article.

Well recently we had a transaction in the office where the listing agent didn't know how to structure a repair credit. This agent had been in the business a while so it wasn't like she was totally new. Obviously our agent was able to show her how (and how much) but it is surprising to me sometimes how a broker will have an agent active in the business with so little training.

If you want a experienced, competent agent to represent your interests when you buy a home in the Pinckney area, contact our office at 734-662-6240 on online at

Miserable closing for some area home buyers

This is a post on our office blog site about a really bad closing at a title company that was one of the area's better companies a few years ago.
