Renovations make your home more enjoyable. Plus, if you do them right, they may even increase your home's value. This comes in handy if you plan on selling your home in the future. But watch out!

The Anatomy of a Bidding War

A bidding war in real estate happens when two or more parties compete for the seller's acceptance of their offer. This stressful situation can be intensified if the owner or listing agent knows there's a lot of interest and propose that everyone submit another higher and better offer.
