In your mind, your adorable, lively, and affectionate dog, whom you deeply love, is practically a member of the family. Of course, her needs are a priority when you’re scoping out new potential homes to live in. You also worry about making sure she adjusts well to the new home when Moving Day finally arrives.

Here are some guidelines on what to look for in a new home purchase and how to help your pet have a smooth, hassle-free moving day.

Research Local Ordinances

When considering buying a new home in a new neighborhood, find out all you can about local city and county regulations and ordinances regarding pet ownership. You’ll want to know what these are so you can obey them and not incur a stiff penalty fee.

Happily, it’s becoming more and more common for communities to set aside and maintain parks for pets to roam in freely. Call up your local parks and recreation department to...

As a business owner, employee, husband, father, church member and community volunteer, David Haire stays pretty busy. 

“It’s a juggling act,” Haire admitted, but he’s not complaining. Instead, he focuses on the things in life that mean the most to him and goes from there. 

“I really enjoy being a dad,” Haire said. “That’s the most important thing.” 

Haire and his wife, Monique, have three children: Eden, 5; Jonathan, 3; and Emily, 6 months. Life with three young children can be a bit crazy at times, but Haire said he loves it and is grateful to have “a good partner” in Monique. The two are homeschooling their oldest, and Haire said he enjoys being part of that as well. 

An Evansville native, Haire said being close to family was one reason he decided to return to his hometown to raise a family. After graduating from Goshen College, Haire lived in Indianapolis for a while. While he enjoyed living in the larger city, Haire knew that Evansville was where he wanted to be when he and his wife began their family.

In addition to family, faith is extremely important to Haire. He and his family are involved with City Church in downtown Evansville. They host a small group of young families at their home for Bible study and fellowship.

Haire enjoys being with people and helping families in various ways. He uses that passion for helping others in his career as a real...

For Sale By Owner Pitfalls

Seems easy, right? Just put a sign in the yard and poof the house is sold. Unfortunately the majority of the time that an owner decides to go For Sale By Owner they end up with the property listed with a realtor. 

Trying to sell on your own can end up costing money in the long run. Time is one of the biggest factors in this process. Most sellers have a job, they cannot be available at the times that a buyer wants to look at your home. Buyers want to look at their specific time, not the sellers. What if you want to take a vacation? That takes the house off the market for an extended period. 

Sellers are not trained to prepare all of the paperwork necessary for the sale of their home and once sold, the paperwork trail is seemingly endless. It all takes time.

Most importantly, it takes time to negotiate the contract and then to work with the inspectors, the closing company, to make repairs... again time that a seller can spend doing their own job. 

If you are considering selling your home, contact Team McClintock at (812) 426-9020, we are trained professionals that can help you through the maze! We have the time to take care of your real estate needs.
