The owners property extends to the right-way of the curb, & All properties are considered by Law , to be Private Property , especially when it is properly Posted .

The homeowners are the ones who pay for the up keep of the city, and the renters are only paying money to rent a space.

You need some landscaping around the house for it to show well. Don't go to much expense though, 2/3 of my buyers replaced the landscaping to their own taste. They painted the house as well. ... more

Did you know you can manually edit your listing and upload your own photos? Also, keep in mind that MLS feeds can sometimes take a day or two to populate these websites.
