Dulcinea's Insight

  • If you obtain home repair advice from a message board, remember to take this information with a grain of salt. Generally, anyone can post to these boards and the advice you receive might not be reputable. Check for sites with moderators who are construction professionals.
  • Consult with an area realtor or use their Web site to learn what you can do to improve the appearance of your home. A local professional may have a few “tricks of the trade” that are especially helpful for selling a home in your area.
