referrals: Buy or Rent, Holland, Maumee, Monclova, Ottawa Hills, Sylvania, Toledo, Waterville, University of Toledo, Ohio, Key Realty - 08/12/12 02:14 PM
A question I often hear at Key Realty  is.... is it better to buy or to rent?  The question to buy or to rent is a question that not only people who live in the Toledo area ask themselves, but with the university soon to resume classes may also be a question for parents who children are studying at the University of Toledo.  An article in The Toledo Blade newspaper  ”Study  says buying over renting has its payoff” on 8-12-12 addressed this  very question.  The article was based on a study done by Zillow.com.
In the article it stated the number of years … (0 comments)

While waiting to have an oil change done at Smitty's Automotive and RV Service I read an article by Art Landseedel about trees and their carbon footprint on the environment.  Art is the City Forester for Sylvania Ohio.  I found Art's name nery appropriate for his life's work.  Within his name are the three words art, land, and seed.  Being an environmentalist is an art of the land and planting seeds that we may never loose the land we now enjoy.  
The article pertained to how trees are of great benefit to the environment in removing pollution, retaining storm water, and … (0 comments)

referrals: Buyer question, Deed in Lieu, To Avoid Foreclosure, Key Realty - 04/19/12 06:22 AM
The other day I had a buyer question from an individual  I was working with in search for their new home.  The question was ..... what does a deed in lieu mean.    The correct terminology is deed in lieu of foreclosure.  This refers to a mutual agreement under which the current owners who typically are delinquent in their mortgage payments deed the property back to the lender in return for various considerations.  These considerations are usually a release from the liability under the loan terms. 
This is usually quick, no foreclosure costs are involved, and the rights of the third parties who … (0 comments)

referrals: Sump Pumps that dark place in the basement that no one likes to talk about, Sylvania Ohio, Key Realty - 02/25/12 07:43 AM
Sump pumps are located usually back in the corner of your basement in a dark place that no one likes to talk about.  I first encountered a sump pump when I moved from my home in Toledo, and the land of no sump pumps, to Sylvania the land of sump pumps.  Maybe it was the newer construction of homes I moved to or the topography, but sump pumps are an item that residents of Sylvania Ohio should and must pay attention to if they are going to have a dry basement.
A sump pump is a means of keeping your basement … (2 comments)

Oh my aching back.  Is that a phrase you have said out loud or at least said to yourself?
For me I have done both over the years.  I have gone to a doctor for pain medication, and yes I have even been to a chiropractor when my back was so bad I could barely walk.
I have been told that lower back pain can result from lifting something the wrong way to the daily stress in one's life. 
 We have all been told that we should lift by bending our knees.  The other rule of thumb is if it looks … (4 comments)
