If you expect you home to show well, it must look good and smell good. Every house has a smell, to include yours. Some have a pleasant smell where as others do not. There are a few things you can do to make your house smell good. One huge must for all homeowners wishing to sell their home is clean and fresh looking floors. Carpet will absorb oders in the house and can be very difficult to eliminate. If your home does not smell good when the buyers walk in the door, they may very well turn around and walk right back out of your home.
Flooring must be maintained properly so that it looks and smells good and last a long time. Our two flooring experts will explain on Success in Real Estate how flooring should be maintained. They will let us know when it can be cleaned and when it needs to be replaced. No one thing will make your home look and show great like new or well maintained flooring.
If you have any questions about flooring or real estate in general, give us a call between 8:30am and 9:30am this Saturday morning at (803-739-8730.

South Carolina Representative Chip Huggins
Representative Chip Huggins explains how the new Point of Sale Amendment to Act 388 affects property taxes in South Carolina.
South Carolina constitution allows the state to assess "Ad Valorem" taxes on property. Ad Valorem simply means at value. Therefore, our constitution allows the state the right to charge property taxes based on its "VALUE". One issue with the Point of Sale is that is does not determine property taxes based on the value, rather, it is based on the price paid for the property. Rarely does the price paid for a property represent its true value.
Rep Huggins explains how SC Representatives arrived/agreed on the current amendment to Act 388. As with any legislation, there are two (or more) sides and each side must give and take to reach an agreement. Rep Huggins explains how this amendment is another example of piece meal legislation that may not fix all of the issues. We need to overhaul our tax laws completely to fix the problems.
