Whether it’s from cigarettes or a candle, smoke leaves a greasy residue on walls and the ceiling, as it floats through the air and settles on the first hard surface it encounters. Most residue attaches to high areas like the upper half of walls and the ceilings. Simple answer re-paint the walls and mix the ionic paint additive by Air-ReNu to the paint; it's a clean, green permanent solution. ... more

Because the site is TERRIBLE! The best way to search for homes is to hire a REALTOR as your Buyer's Agent. They can create a customized search for you in the local MLS. This site is terribly outdated, inaccurate, and the search function is lacking in many areas (as you have noticed) and has plenty of bugs. Do yourself a favor and hire a Realtor. It will be much easier, plus you'll have a pro looking out for your best interests. Good luck! ... more

Ask your landlord, most will allow you to break your lease as long as they have enough time to get it rented to someone else, until it is rented to someone else you are on the hook for the home. ... more

Drowwen, I'm a realtor in Louisiana, so the laws may be different in Texas. Even so, I am in no way, shape or form giving you legal advice. However, the important thing to remember is your rights. In Louisiana, after an offer has been accepted and a home is "under contract", there is a due-diligence period in which an inspection can be done. During this period, you may back out of the contract if the inspection comes back with any defect that is unacceptable to you. This due-diligence period compensates for the fact that in Louisiana all buyers of immovable property (called real property in every other state) must sign a waiver of a right called redhibition, which is a law giving buyers of real estate a time period in which they have to ask for damages in the event that a "vice" or defect that a buyer would, if aware of before entering into a purchase, have made the decision not to buy. With that being said, there are many defects that will prevent FHA from financing a home. I cannot speak for them, so I won't. However, while I'm not an appraiser and cannot and will not speak for them as well, I've seen appraisers flag the following defects (this list is not exhaustive or indicative of all transactions, but is meant to be a "rule of thumb"): peeling paint on the exterior of a home, holes in the walls or ceilings, missing stoves, plumbing or electrical problems, various types of roof damage, rotting wood, or even bare wood with no paint. I hope this helps. Feel free to check out the FHA website for more info, and be sure to let us know if we can help you or anyone you know with real estate in Louisiana! Heath ... more
