Watch for these mistakes in real estate transactions

Buying and selling property happens every day here in Delaware. The fact that it happens so often might imply that real estate transactions go off without a hitch, but that is not always the case.

Homes in the nation's most affordable markets can often be found for $100,000 or less, but similar properties would be priced at $1 million or more in some of America's most affluent neighborhoods.
