    Don't fight the home inspection

    Question: We are selling our house and have just received an offer to purchase. The offer contains a contingency for the buyer to obtain a home inspection report.

    The buyer is asking for a general inspection contingency, but our real estate broker is advising us to use the specific inspection contingency. Can you explain the difference and give us some assistance?

    Can You Trust Zillow's Home Price Zestimate? In A Word: No.

    Feb. 15 - I got an email from Zillow last week. Seems my house has gone up in value another $2,000+ dollars in the past 30 days. And it's going to rise another 3.5% in the next year, according to their Zestimate®. Fab!

    Except that it's just speculation. When it comes to Zillow's Zestimates, you have to take the numbers with a grain of salt. Make that a big shake of salt, right over your shoulder. And maybe a stiff drink. And a frank conversation with your real estate agent. COMPLETE STORY
