The question came up in the basement of a house we were viewing that had bad walls. They were beginning to move inward. We get that on older homes quite a bit on the East side of town in Wichita where the soil is hard clay. Bracing and fixing (5 comments)
home: Get Pre Approved in Wichita Kansas - 12/14/12 07:03 AM
Getting pre approved by a lender or a bank before looking for a home in Wichita Kansas just makes sense. A pre approval from a mortgage lender takes the guesswork out of shopping for a house by letting you and your realtor know how much you qualify for. Most sellers want proof that you can get a loan to buy their house before they’ll go into a contract with you. While working through a contract towards closing a home is off the market. If it turns out the buyer can’t get financing that’s wasted time and money for the seller when (1 comments)

home: Fixing Squeaky Stairs Wichita Kansas - 11/23/12 06:15 AM
Squeaky stairs are annoying and can turn off potential buyers when your trying to sell your home in Wichita Kansas. Often I notice homebuyers concerned when they walk down squeaky stairs. It must mean the house is about to fall down! Fixing those squeaky stairs is cheap and easy. If you can get under the stairs, all the better. Just so you know, the tread is the horizontal part you step on and the riser is the vertical under the tread holding it up. First pick up an L bracket from your local hardware store. it should come with screws. (4 comments)
