One of the disadvantages of living in a rural area is that the newest technologies and techniques take a while to get to you. For a person that is a habitual "early-adopter", this has been really frustrating.  A new technology that I have been waiting to get into my area was a fully wireless capa...
Mold Testing I had an interesting experience the other day when discussing mold with two different agents.  In the case of the first agent, we were working for a buyer who was concerned about the potential for mold in the crawlspace since there was moisture present.  The second agent represented ...
Russel Ray (if you're not reading his blog, I highly recommend it) made a great comment on one of my earlier blog posts regarding the marketing tactics used by some home inspectors and how counter-porductive it can be to price-cut.
