Regina, I had tile installed in a second floor condo. It was done by Home Depot. They installed a layer of cork under the tile. I have a friend that had the same process done. I hope this helps.
My honest opinion based upon a lot of experience is that yes, if you renovate in a way that you will have a shower and no tub, that will affect resale because many people like to have both. In many new developments what they do when there is more than one bathroom is give one a shower and one a tub. If this is your only bathroom in your 1-BR apt, as I suspect, you really should have both a shower and a tub. Even people who regularly shower might occasionally want to take a bath if they are sore from a hard workout, or for a variety of other reasons. Better to renovate in a way that the most possible buyers will be drawn to your unit, rather than have a reason to eliminate it from their search.
Hope this helps.

Health lines are not necessarily and quite often not a health hazard.. You can actually have the power department or an independent contractor come out and measure.
My experience has been that a turned off microwave gives off more than the power lines.... more
Well depending on the conditon of the property, it could definately affect the resale value, many new home buyers find it hard to see potential in an unfurnished space. it may sit on the market longer if it is not up to standard with comparables in the area, a small investment may give a larger return , I'd love to take a look at the apartment, and could definately assist you in listing the property and helping to decide which route would be best and most efficient and profitable for you.

I would go with the latter, 24 inched each. This will allow your appliances to appear full-sized, which will benefit you in the future, as most buyer prefer a nice and semi- standard kichen.

Temporary certificates of occupancy are granted on homes that require repairs to bring the home into compliance with local safety and building codes. If you buy a home with a temporary C. of O., you are agreeing to take responsibility for those repairs after you close on the house and become the owner. This is often done when a seller doesn't have to means to make such repairs themselves (or simply doesnt want to) and the buyer is willing and able to take responsibility. You will generally have 30-90 to make the necessary repairs and have the home re-inspected by the local building department.... more
There is no such thing as a ball park cost for building a home. What goes into the house will greatly influence the overall construction cost of the home. What is the nature of your question and maybe we can be of assistance in another way. Are you considering building a new home or do are you looking for a square foot cost for another reason?
