Looking for a Smokin' Hot Deal???

Well, if you smell cigarette smoke, you just might get one!  Good news if you're a buyer (and particularly one who likes to smoke indoors), not so good news for sellers who smoke indoors. 

Check out this recent article and survey that was posted by CBC last month:

Smoking Reduces Your House Value by 30%

Figure on saving (or losing) about 30% off the market value of similar homes that are smoke-free.  This fact is something that can't be sugar-coated.  Certain things just have to be said.  The sooner people are aware that what they may be doing is not only putting their health at risk, it is also putting their financial well-being in jeopardy by biting a big chunk out of their profits.  And, unless they've been building equity in the home for many, many years, it may just wipe out all of their equity when it comes time to sell.

The sooner people know the truth, the better off they will be.  So, whether you're buying or selling, you can always expect the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth from The Red Carpet Crew.
