re: Home owner questions:


I would not put your extra laminate outside. It will not hold up to the moisture and humidity. Other than that, all of your ideas are good. Keeping the house up to date with flooring and paint and redo kitchen and bath will get you the best return on investment. Also landscaping to add curb appeal will help with selling.

For a 100% return, I would probably sell it to use the extra equity as a downpayment on a new house, but it is tempting to rent when you will own it free and clear very quickly. Then you have the extra monthly income plus the equity is still there shoudl you decide to sell later.

Thats cute.

Considering you 1) have no idea if its financed and required and
2) know if he can afford to self insure.....

Whats the premium on a cheap house like this? Next to nothing?

Eta:. Perhaps you were agreeing with me?



yes i was agreeing with you. Any insurance company would want to insure it for way more than 37k.

Sorry...just saw your request.

If you can't get it to work, just go to Lowe's website and look up interior shutters. The brand is allen + roth.

Edit: They are faux wood, but really look nice.

re: Home owner questions:


I got my quote from Lowes and I'm wondering if that's the same company. What's interesting is my realtor said go with good blinds instead because the return on shutters is just not there. I think I'll heed her advice. I think I can use the net difference of almost $1,700 better in other places.

re: Home owner questions:


Might be. That brand is also available wooden, which are much more costly. You are doing the right thing going with blinds. We eventually replaced the faux wood with real wood, but we have been in our house 15 years and have no plans to move.
