Schuleke Plumbing, the Beverly Hills 'plumbers to the stars', recommend checking your residential or commercial buidling's plumbing system on a seasonal basis. Even though the climate in the Los Angeles area is mild, that doesn't mean you shouldn't check your plumbing system on a regularly. Making sure everything is in working order and running at an optimum level will help you to prevent a plumbing crisis in the future. Doing this quarterly is often enough to know what is going on with your residential or commercial plumbing system. First, do a visual inspection to check for any water spots or other signs that there could be a problem. In your kitchen, be sure to change filters regularly.

The whole ritzy look and allure of Beverly Hills, has lately been under a microscope, especially with the 2 big development projects with Hilton and Robinson's May being the center of attention. Both projects are now having their own share of set backs, one got beat in the polls by a very slim margin and the other is trying to find an alternative to its financing. But what is important is that the city has lost 2 huge revenue streams that would have given a fresh supply of oxygen to a already burdened budget. Now the Beverly Hills needs to come up with funds from elsewhere to keep up all the city services, education and development programs it is so well known for. There is a certain age group and income group that lives in Beverly Hills, that does not have the financial means or accept...

Must be Seen to be Believed One of our new favorite blogs is LovelyListing — an incredibly entertaining compendium of some of the strangest and most unappealing real estate listing photography you’ll ever see. While you, as a seller, might briefly agonize over whether to include photos of the walk-in closet or the recently-remodeled powder room, others apparently have no misgivings whatsoever about including photos featuring mold spots, mounds of clutter, weird collections, the owners themselves, their kids, or their pets. From the tacky to the bizarre to the completely inexplicable, from bad Photoshop jobs to subject matter so hideous that no amount of retouching could help, the homes featured here will provide enough entertainment (both comedy and horror) to keep you occupied for hour...

The Ugliest House in America Think your house needs remodeling? Vote for the “Ugliest House in America” We all have improvements we’d like to make to our homes — replace the countertops, refinish the floors, put in new landscaping — but few of our lists include “remove twenty-years’ worth of piled-up junk” or “repair the roof so that it actually covers the entire building.” HomeVestors, a company that specializes in buying and selling “problem homes” and properties with serious structural issues, is currently running its second annual “Ugliest Home in America” contest. The finalists are eight homes from around the country that go far beyond just “ugly” — these properties are in need of a little more than cosmetic improvements. They boast such delightful features as collapsing floors, ga...
