Some people truly enjoy this look but, then again some people like Lava Lamps! Don't forget to look into Laminates. Less expensive than hardwood flooring with a very good look as well.

An item like this will likely come up anyway during negotiations. If it's at the end of its life-span and your warranty will cover it, go ahead and get it replaced. If not, and you want to save the additional funds, in this market, you can stress to the other agent that you are offering a warranty (keeping in mind that for the new buyers...some of the warranty companies will not cover it if it's at the end of the life-cycle and the inspection recommended replacement ((and it wasn't replaced prior to the purchase)). If you are making a decent profit from the sale, you can also just offer an allowance so that you do not have to worry about the up-front cost of replacement.

State Laws vary, so it's best to check with the licensing laws for the state you are concerned about, but I see no inherent conflict, PROVIDED you disclose to everyone your dual relationship and allow flexibility of representation. If you built a plat and required everyone to use you as a lender, you could have an issue. If you provided quotes to all interested parties and allowed them to shop or bring their own lender, I suspect this would be okay. Just make sure with the authorities in your state to make sure. ... more

Someone just told me that you can get marine paint and actually paint over them yourself. I haven't tried it so not sure if it works, but you might try it on something brass as a test and see what happens. ... more
