In many markets across the country, the number of buyers searching for their dream homes outnumbers the number of homes for sale. This has led to a competitive marketplace where buyers often need to stand out. One way to show that you are serious about buying your dream home is to get pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage before starting your search.

How to Organize Your Kitchen Fast—Even in 15 Minutes

We're willing to bet you spend a whole lot of time in your kitchen, so odds are fairly good it's also one of the most cluttered rooms in your house. Somehow, everything that doesn't have a home (and lots of other stuff that does!) seems to end up in the same space meant for cooking.
But it's a new year, so if you've vowed to finally clean up your act—and your house—we're here to help!
