We are not the expert on legal matter. As a matter of fact, there are attorneys at every title company. That's the answer to you legal question. The fact that you have contacted 3 different title companies and all said the same thing means you do need to show proof. ... more

Susie Kay answered:
Before you install any granite on the floor I would suggest that you contact a local realtor and ask for opinion. What does the local market dictates? How is your home compared to similar homes in your subdivision? Do most of them have granite flooring? Here in Dallas on high end homes we see nice hardwood or marble tile.

I hope this helps!

My parents purchased a home that needed a complete overhaul. They called a landscape designer, which turned out to be a fantastic idea. The service they hired factored in weather conditions, angles, and the routine care and maintenance to build the perfect introduction to their home.

One of my newest listing has fantastic curb appeal, as well.

I'd like to know what your definition of "Old World" is.

I have found that two masters downstairs or separate living quarters for parents to live in is becoming a very common request!

I have personally just put in a gunite pool, and found it to be fantastic. I was told most pool companies use the same pool subs for thier work, plumbing, plaster and gunite, so its really about who you are most comfortable using. Make sure you have recieved plenty of bids for the work, apples to apples. ... more

The United Home Team answered:

My best gess would be hot water would cool much faster in a fiberglass tub due to the thickness of the material. However I can also see a cultured marble tub cooling just a quickly depending on the temperature of the tub prior to pooring a bath. It would take long for the hot water to bring the marble to temp. and in the mean time the marble would pull the heat right out of the tub. I would honestly guess the fiberglass tub would keep the water hotter longer ... This is a tough one, perhaps myth busters time, ha

Gail Levin answered:
Vera, Realtors like to take pictures of the home with furniture, it looks far better than an empty house, thus the reason for the pictures. I am convinced nearly 100% that the furniture does not go with the house, however, if you are interested in making an offer and would like any of the furniture, your Realtor will know what form to use. The chances are that you won't get the furniture, but might offer to purchase same at a price to be agreed upon. I am assuming that you have a Realtor and you should pose this question to him/her. If I can be of further assistance, please email me. ... more

MarketReady Home Staging & ReDesign answered:
In addition to what others have posted (of which I agree) here's a rule thumb when selecting a palette: 60-30-10. 60% would be your prominant color, 30% your accent color and 10% your trim color. This would apply to both the interior or exterior.
To save time and money and to provide continuity within your space, you could paint all spaces in the same palette, use all the same brushes and rollers (if done in a timely manner) and buy 5 gallon bucket(s). That way you're not changing out or cleaning rollers to change to the next color for another room and incurring additional expense and time.
Hopefully you can stage each room with diversity in color to compliment your paint color choices.

Trust your local paint supplier to have the most current color selection and don't hesitate to ask their guidance in selecting your neutral color pallette. There are some beautiful ones out there! Neutral doesn't have to be blah....

You're on the right track! Best of luck to you.

Tim Hunke answered:
I have owned a pool for over 25 years and have enjoyed. Since you are asking about the price I would like to tell you about some features you may or may not want. An automatic water leveler automatically adds water to the pool; however, there is no way to tell if you have a leak until the your water bill comes in. Although I have a clorinator the new pools have a salt system that is quite good. Both my son and my son-in-law have them and they seem great. No stingy eyes. A filter that is diatomacious earth really is clear; however cleaning the filters can be a pain.I would suggest that you meet with several pool companies and get them to tell you about the options. Then go to a pool suppy company and get the prices for the chemicals. A pool is not cheap to operate. You normally have 2 motors that run from 3-12 hrs a day and that should be considered. You are welcome to contact me and I will be happy to give you somemore tips. Regards, Tim ... more

These are rare. Not sure why...probably just the costs of building materials.

Even stucco is not so common in much of the state. Anything but brick exterior and wood frame construction
on single family homes is not so common.
