The cost of maintaining pool varies. Best bet is to call local swimming pool service to get accurate estimates for pool maintenance. To remove pool you will need permits, cost 7000-15000.
Good Luck.

Hello. It is probably easier to discuss various construction types verbally, since I am not certain what you want to know specifically. There are many construction types. As for your second question, depending on the style of the home and whether or not there is a basement, might determine he cost efficiency of converting a carpeted floor (what is under it slab or plywood for example?) to a good hard wood floor. They likely can be easily converted though. What are your plans once you put in the new hard wood? Will you be covering them up?
Any questions or if you want more details, please do not hesitate.
Thank you,
Hilton Dubovy

though, i'm just a home buyer like yourself, i've done a lot of research on homes and went on numerous inspections. as some people mentioned above, the first two things that were listed on there are quite minor...

my biggest issues were the fact that you had areas of mold and humidity in the basement. as a parent who has kids, that is a major issue for me, and i would not buy a house that wasn't treated and given a confirmation that this mold / issue was taken care of by a professional. you don't want yourself nor your family to breath in mold or any other toxicities

the only way that you will have leverage on the first 2 items is if no other offers came in, and the sellers are desperate to move and need you to buy in order for them to afford their other property that they may have bought. if that is the case, it doesn't hurt to ask...what's the worst they can say? no? the best would be YES, and you can get something out of it.

Good luck

Yes, the county property tax can be reassessed. If you property value has dropped significatly but your property tax has not changed much, you can file to reduce the tax with county. I know people either hire a real estate assessment consultant, or contact the county assessor's office directly or go in front of a judge yourself. Nassau county is already in the process of reassessing property values in some areas for 2009-2010, 2010-2011 school year. ... more
