Ohio House Bill 257 Failed - 02/24/09 11:53 AM
Old news... I found out in January in talking to a home inspector that the bill to license home inspectors in Ohio had failed... or Ohio House Bill 257 had not passed. Or maybe I knew in 2008... and it just did not phase me with everything else going on in the housing industry. I could have read it here at the end of January: Ohio House Bill 257 - Licensing of Home Inspectors in Ohio on Tim and Mariana Buell's ActiveRain blog post in December 2008.

Six reason why ActiveRain is losing its way... - 02/21/09 11:08 AM
The stinkin badges? Charging for blogs? Charging for membership? OK I am not sure I think ActiveRain is losing it's way. Or has "jumped the shark" although I said ActiveRain "jumped the shark" last summer. Sidenote "jumped the shark" recently jumped the shark, say "leaped the scorpion" from now on. It's documented.

Does Columbus have Bedroom Communities? - 02/21/09 07:09 AM
I had to look up "bedroom" community, when I saw the term in a Columbus Dispatch Article. I "googled" What does bedroom community mean I have heard the term "bedroom community" before... of course. I've sometimes wondered if I grew up in one. Or if what I grew up in was a suburb? Or a separate town that was close to a bigger city. The definitions I found in Google kinda told me what I already knew about what "bedroom community" means. Some said the same thing... some contradicted one another.... some said the suburbs are bedroom communities. Columbus Dispatch (2 comments)

Foreclosure in Worthington brings hope - 02/20/09 09:04 AM
The foreclosure on the Worthington Square Mall was in December 2008 I believe. I visited the mall once at Christmas time, the first time I had gone over since August 2008. The Victoria Secret Store and The Bath and Body Works store were noticeably gone since I visited the mall in late summer. An article in Business First Columbus last Friday said 19 of the 43 mall spots are filled, about 50 percent. .. reading about the Worthington Square Mall a couple of weeks ago in another local publication I remarked that 50 percent seemed high to me, it seemed like (0 comments)
Bayleaf India Bistro is for lovers - 02/19/09 09:31 AM

This story from Jay Markanich a home inspector in Virginia shows one investor (flipper's) viewpoint on how to get the job done and Jay's differing opinion. Something to think about when buying a home an investor has "redone" even if it all looks new and shiny, have it inspected by a good home inspector. And sadly if the investor and their "contractor" has this attitude there will be things a home inspector can't see for you. This is a re-blog of Jay's post.
