buying a home in avon lake: Are you walking buyers through homes you know are not for them? - 10/11/13 07:47 PM
OK . I am waiting for the trigger response,  " Stan you can't steer you're buyer ".  Hold on!  That's not what we are talking about here. I am referring to homes that when you open the front door the landing is missing and you are looking at a scene out of "Home Alone" where the robbers fall down to the basement floor.  
   Yes we can find ourselves working with individuals (on day one or two) that are driven to see everything out there at the lowest price simply because they feel they may miss out on a golden opportunity. … (2 comments)

buying a home in avon lake: Siding Choices for Your Avon Lake Home - 05/07/13 08:27 PM
Types of siding
 
Wood. The natural look this siding creates is appealing to many homeowners -- not to mention the inexpensive pricetag. Types include clapboard, plywood, hardboard/composition, rectangular plank, cedar and wood plank. But wood siding is the least-used today simply because it doesn't perform well in harsh weather conditions and is also at the mercy of outdoor critters, including insects and other animals attracted to it. Average cost: $1-$6.50 per square foot (depending on the type of wood). Vinyl. This home siding is the most commonly known and used. Vinyl siding doesn't provide insulation for the home unless an insulation is added … (3 comments)

buying a home in avon lake: Listing says Cistern on property. What is a Cistern? - 04/04/13 08:39 PM
A Cistern is a reservoir or tank for holding water, especially for catching and holding rain water for later use.  These are very common on larger properties with gardens or farm property. I have seen cisterns in old city homes.  They have to be closed and they are not drinking water unless they are sealed and are designed specifically for such.  A cistern is not a well as it not driven by a water table but a rather a run off or catch from incoming water elsewhere.  Cisterns can be overflows for wells.

buying a home in avon lake: Planning to replace your Avon Lake Home windows, know the ratings - 06/28/12 09:21 PM

 
The National Fenestration Ratings Council (NFRC) has developed benchmarks for rating window performance under specific circumstances. Their designation AA refers to residential windows; BB refers to windows designed for commercial use.
The most significant rating of NFRC is the U factor, which measures the flow of heat through window material. The lower the rating, the less heat flow. Ratings range from .10 to 1.20 (pay close attention to the decimal points). The Solar Gain Heat Coefficient (SHGC) measures the effectiveness of a window in blocking heat radiation from the sun. This rating is measured in increments between zero and … (0 comments)
