What is the 'Referral Rewards' Program? you ask...I will tell you - 02/27/08 06:18 AM
When we purchased our first home many years ago, we were shocked that the neighbors that had been living beside one another for 3-4years already, did not know each other at all! We live in a beautiful neighborhood on a family oriented street, which was one of the selling features of our house. We had a young child with another on the way and it was absolutely imperative that we know our neighbors and the people on the street. It was very important that we know who our children would be in contact with and the kids that they would be playing with. (1 comments)

Even larger tanks that were specifically designed for underground use can leak if they do not have adequate corrosion protection. If you notice an unexplainable sharp increase in your home heating oil consumption, your tank may be leaking. But that information alone is not always an accurate indicator. In some cases, leaks (0 comments)

Many people , especially when purchasing a home, are looking for ways to save money. When it comes down to the Inspection of a home, many people feel they can 'look over' the house themselves and save the money it would cost to have a Home Inspector come in. Here are are few points to consider if you find yourself pondering the same idea. First of all, it is a known fact that people buy houses emotionally.
