HI Jeffrey,
It will probably cost about $200 to power rake, and is a great investment in terms of adding curb appeal to your home, which will raise the value of your house. Contact me if you have more questions.

I don't think your taxes would really be affected by this. If you were trying to change the driveway shape or move it to another part of the property, you could run into this kind of problem. Without doing that you should be pretty safe as far as your taxes are concerned. I hope your able to get your driveway changed to something you prefer more. It sucks to have not have things the way you want them at your own home.

It depends on the buyer of the home. A lot of buyers really like siding because it is energy efficient. Some people will only buy houses made of other materials. You should get started on repairs sooner rather than later so that you can start building equity. I'm surprised that house is still around though. ... more

Hi -

I am a listing agent for relocation inventory properties, and often have to get three quotes to submit to my company before having any major work done. Since the properties can be all over the county, I have found I can easily do this by going online to I will get responses from local vendors, and will get more than one quote. It gives me an opportunity to see who responds quickly - I once had a tree removed from a property by one companies before another company even got back to me, and I was very happy with their service.

Good luck!

The insurance is based on a lot of things. You can get an idea just by how much the house sells for. It will depend on location, age, how well the roof is maintained and other things.

Bill Eckler answered:

Buyers are more concerned with the schools, taxes, number of bedrooms, age of the home etc. and generally pay very little attention to the color unless it is overwhelmingly bad.

Our recommendation is to do what many people do when considering painting their homes. Drive around and look for similar homes, paying close attention to their colors. There's no point in reinventing the wheel for something so simple as the color of a home. Most homeowners would be happy to share the brand and color of their paint.

Good luck

Toilet Paper Dispenser/Roll Thing. If it does not function properly or is not located within easy access then who cares about the rest. I been in some fancy bathrooms and the roll thing is like behind you in some gold-plated thingamajig that let's you get one sheet and sticks. Who cares about the fancy faucets then?

In fact the entire remodel should be focused on where that stupid dispenser thingamajig goes.

Just my take on the subject, Dunes
