“With the recent tornadoes that shook our great city damaging homes and businesses, many people will have to make the decision to either renovate or sell their property as is. We encourage consumers to do their due diligence and contact a Realtor to help them choose which path is the right option for them. If someone offers to buy your home, a Realtor® can ensure you are getting accurate information of current market conditions for your property," added Hairston.
