Ya gotta love those who think that duct tape makes a good plumbing repair. Here's some duct tape on a plumbing vent pipe in the attic.  BUT, just in case it doesn't work, we'll slip the little red bowl under the joint to catch any water.   Here we see a T (serving a sump pump) taped into the main drain line.  I bet there is a least two rolls of tape wrapped around that joint.  No bowl needed.  Hey, any leakage will just fall down to the ground. Ya gotta LOVE IT!

In Mount Sterling Kentucky October Court Days = A Wild Weekend of Shopping! There is NOTHING in this world as whacky as October Court Days in Mt. Sterling Kentucky!  It's completely in my blood and genes. There's no known cure for it and I am afraid it is terminal. There is no way I would miss a year of attending.  It always occurs every third Monday in October. That was when court was in session and country folk came into town to swap, trade, sell while they wasted away the day waiting to see how issues in court would turn out. It quickly expanded into Saturday and Sunday too since everyone came to town early. I sort of grew up in Mount Sterling since both sets of Grandparents and loads of relatives lived Montgomery County. Mom & Dad went to high school there as well. My grandmother El...

Just about every client that I meet with now days ask me the question, should I consider buying a foreclosure?  Without question, there are some great stories about people getting wonderful deals on foreclosures, but there are just as many stories of people ending up with an unfinished house and no money to finish it. The process of selling foreclosures has changed over the last year.  Before that, most banks would take foreclosures to the court house steps and have an absolute auction.  This meant that the highest bidder wins.  The downsides are that you rarely are able to inspect or even see the house before the auction, you have to put down 10% at the auction, and you had a limited number of days to close on the property.   Court House Auction   ·        10% Down (often non-refundabl...

PREFACE:  I know there's good and bad in every field (including mine) so don't go there.  This is about the bad and YOU know who YOU are!Did you ever just want to slap an idiot upside the head!When I find outlets that nationally recognized safety standards say should be Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) protected, I always recommend a safety upgrade to my clients.  I've taken so much flack from real estate agents about this so many times I've lost count."Why do you have to bring that up.  It didn't have to have it when this house was built so it doesn't have to be done now!"WHY??  Well, because I know what can happen.  I can lead you to the water.  I can shove your head under the water.  BUT, I can't make you drink.But, of course they are right!!  The house is 100 years old.  Didn...

You don't have to look far to read, or see something that talks about the state of your local or national economy.  When it comes to real estate, as of late, it's been the top of the news discussions.  Why?  Several reasons come to mind.  First, the handling of various types of loans, in particular the more risky type, have come back to bite the loan industry in a big way.  The subprime mortgage market has suffered some setbacks recently, and some are saying that it will be a while until they recover.  Secondly, the press, and eventually the end users (you and I), thrive on shocking news.  Before you know it, mole hills are transformed into mountains and it's not long before the snowballs are rolling.  There are, indeed, financial issues within our economy but reports of certain trends ...
