Hello Readers, Using passive solar design techniques to heat and cool your home can be both environmentally friendly and cost effective. Passive solar heating techniques include placing larger, insulated windows on south-facing walls and locating thermal mass, such as a concrete slab floor or a heat-absorbing wall, close to the windows. In many homes, your heating costs could be more than 50% lower than the cost of heating the same house that does not include passive solar design. Passive solar design can also help reduce your cooling costs. Passive solar cooling techniques include carefully designed overhangs, windows with reflective coatings, and reflective coatings on exterior walls and the roof.  A passive solar house requires careful design and site orientation, which depend on the...

Hello Readers, If you are looking for some information regarding what type of shingles to place or replace on your home, the following article may be of interest. Asphalt shingles are the most common type of sloped roof covering in North America. They are easy to install, reliable and arguably the best bang for the buck. Shingle Construction   While there are many types of asphalt shingles, the general construction is similar. There are three distinct layers -   • A base material that gives the shingle strength and shape.   • An asphalt layer that forms a waterproof barrier.   • A granular surface that reflects the ultraviolet radiation and gives the shingle durability, color and texture. Warranty   What's a 20 year shingle? 20 years is the manufacturer's limited warranty against defect...

Ask a roomful of homeowners what's so great about owning versus renting, and you'll hear them holler in unison: "the tax deductions!" And it's true - homeowners who itemize their taxes are able to deduct 100% of their mortgage interest and property taxes from their income tax returns. That means that if you're in a 28% tax bracket, Uncle Sam effectively subsidizes about a third of your borrowing costs or more, making your home more affordable or allowing you to buy a larger home than you could have otherwise. Also, big chunks of your closing costs are tax deductible, and hundreds of thousands of dollars of any profit (or capital gains) that you realize when you sell your home are exempt from income taxes. At tax time, it's critical to know what you're entitled to, so you can claim it. S...

Starting my 5th year in real estate I looked back on all of the advertising/marketing I have done.  Post cards?  Did that for a year. Nothing.  Calendars and football schedules.  Tried that too and got the same result.  Nothing.  All of the so called "tried and true" methods of marketing just stunk.  Then 2 years ago we tried a billboard.  I had just started my team the "Mallett Integrity Team" and we needed to hit the ground running.  The billboard was expensive but generated over $50,000 in commissions, after the cost of the sign, within 6 months.  It was a huge hit and even now people say "You're the guy from the billboard!".  It's a great conversation starter.  I also notice lots of people around town just seem to know what I do for a living.  No secret agent here. In July last yea...

February is a busy month in our sleepy little town of Dripping Springs.  It all gets started with the Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce's "Suits and Boots" community award dinner.  Held this year at the Salt Lick Pavilion it's going to attract everyone who's anyone and a few like me who just like great BBQ.  Be sure to wear your best boots and suits to what promises to be a great event and a fun night.  That is coming up February 5th. A few weeks later on February 20th is the Dripping Springs United Methodist Men's WILD GAME DINNER.  Serving over 700 people and last year raising over $65,000 for local Charities this dinner and auction is where hunters and fine food connoisseurs congregate for a night of fun, live music, silent and live auctions and of course the food.  This year's me...
