I include a copy of this with the package I leave the consumer and they really seem to love it. Just thought I'd share.  Burglary Prevention Tips Keep your home from being an easy target Protect your home by discouraging intruders from making it their next target. Burglars are less likely to victimize a house that looks occupied or protected by a security system. When you're on vacation or away from home Put lights, stereo or TV on a timer to give the appearance that someone is home. Secure sliding glass doors with pins to prevent both horizontal and vertical movement. Don't stop your mail or newspaper deliveries; it signals you're away. Instead, have a neighbor pick up your deliveries. Ask a neighbor to park their car in your driveway to give your home the appearance that someone is th...

Fall is upon us and I have these and many more tips at http://www.burelandassociates.com. There is plenty for the seasoned home owner or new owner to be.  "A good Realtor keeps an eye out for both sides of the for sale sign"  Fall TipsThe Importance of Fall Fertilizing Fall is the time to feed your root system, but you must fertilize at the right time and in the right amounts. Improper fertilization can result in a diminished root system. Although fertilizer is called "food" in conversations, it really isn't the kind of food that lawns can use. Fertilizer provides nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and certain key elements like iron. The root takes these nutrients, plus air and water, from the soil and sends them up to the green grass blades. Sunlight helps turn them into sugars. The sugar...

I saw these tips and I had to share. As an inspector, like you, I have seen some crazy things out there. This piece reminded me that in a "buyers market" the seller can squeeze in a few more dollars by presenting a better, more kept home. And I have always been told that the kitchen sells the home. Me personally I like the concept of stagers.  Tips for Selling a House Ready to sell your home? Want to sell fast? For the best price? You need tips for selling a house.

What is EIFS?EIFS stands for Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems. The product is also called synthetic stucco, and refers to a multi-layered exterior finish that's been used in European construction since shortly after World War II, when contractors found it to be a good repair choice for buildings damaged during the war. The majority of repairs to European buildings were to structures constructed of stone, concrete, brick, or other similar, durable materials. EIFS in North America North American builders began using EIFS in the 1980's, first in commercial buildings, then applying it as an exterior finish to residences--mostly wood frame houses--using the same techniques that had been successful in Europe. There are three layers to EIFS Inner Layer Foam insulation board that's secure...

WASHINGTON -- President Bush, looking for ways to respond to the subprime-mortgage crisis, will outline a series of policy changes and recommendations today to help borrowers avoid default, senior administration officials said. Among the moves will be an administrative change to allow the Federal Housing Administration, which insures mortgages for low- and middle-income borrowers, to guarantee loans for delinquent borrowers. The change is intended to help borrowers who are at least 90 days behind in payments but still living in their homes avoid foreclosure; the guarantees help homeowners by allowing them to refinance at more favorable rates. Mr. Bush also will ask Congress to suspend, for a limited period, an Internal Revenue Service provision that penalizes borrowers who refinance the...

Why Buy An Energy Efficient Central Air Conditioner? In an average air conditioned home, air conditioning consumes more than 2000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, causing about 3,500 pounds of carbon dioxide and 31 pounds of sulfur dioxide to be emitted at the power plant and, at average electricity prices, costs you about $150. In high-cooling climates those numbers can be doubled or even higher. Central A/C units are more efficient than window or through-the-wall units. They are also out of the way, quiet, and convenient to operate. High-efficiency A/C units save money on your utility bills. High-efficiency A/C units result in fewer environmentally harmful emissions. Manufacturers generally agree that plants should not be closer than 18 inches. Air conditioners need to take in ...

Asbestos What Is Asbestos? Asbestos is a mineral fiber found in rocks, of naturally occurring silicate minerals that can be separated into fibers. There are several kinds of asbestos fibers, all of which are fire resistant and not easily destroyed or degraded by natural processes. The fibers are strong, durable, and resistant to heat and fire. They are also long, thin and flexible, so that they can even be woven into cloth, because of these qualities; asbestos has been used in thousands of consumer, industrial, maritime, automotive, scientific and building products. During the twentieth century, some 30 million tons of asbestos have been used in industrial sites, homes, schools, shipyards and commercial buildings in the United States. There are several types of asbestos fibers, of which...

  Mold in the Home  The first thing to understand about mold is that there is a little mold everywhere – indoors and outdoors. It's in the air and can be found on plants, foods, dry leaves, and other organic materials. It's very common to find molds in homes and buildings. After all, molds grow naturally indoors.  And mold spores enter the home through doorways, windows, and heating and air conditioning systems.  Spores also enter the home on animals, clothing, shoes, bags and people. When mold spores drop where there is excessive moisture in your home, they will grow. Common problem sites include humidifiers, leaky roofs and pipes, overflowing sinks, bath tubs and plant pots, steam from cooking, wet clothes drying indoors, dryers exhausting indoors, or where there has been flooding. M...

  What you should know about Radon         Click on Georgia to link the EPA site map. Radon is a cancer causing radioactive gas. You cannot see radon and you cannot smell it or taste it, but it may be a problem in your home. This is because when you breathe air-containing radon, you increase your risk of getting lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. You should test for radon. Testing is the only way to find out about your home's radon level. The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing of all homes below the third floor for radon. You can fix a radon problem. If you find that you have high radon levels, there are ways to fix a radon problem. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels. If you are b...
