Number Six in our series of Top Ten things to know about Tucson Real Estate: .... They're made of mud and, well, termite poo. Brushing off the tubes doesn't ... www.mytucsonblog.com/category/tucson-homes-explained/ - 68k - Cached - Similar pages
Really? How earthy!
The Google link to Tucson' HouseChick Kelley's Blog perplexed me until I read the entry. I am in the upper Midwest, the Great Lakes States area... Southwestern US building materials could include mud and termite poo for all I know. Adobe is foreign to me but I never ever thought it would be made up of mud and termite poo... I do understand after reading the entry that Kelley is saying the termite tubes are made of mud and termite poo. Real estate is local but Columbus termite tunnels are made of Ohio mud and termite poo too.
I sold real estate in the Dayton Ohio area for a short time before moving to Columbus. Homes there sometimes have a lot more brick on them. Often homes in the Dayton Ohio area are all brick. In Columbus (less than two hours from Dayton) often homes have a brick facade, the back is stucco or siding, vinyl, wood or aluminum.
If you want to read about the largest all brick community in the US or maybe it's the world? Visit Teri Lussier's TheBrickRanch.com about Huber Heights a community north east of the City of Dayton.
We have Huber Homes in Central Ohio (the Columbus area) too. Chuck Huber built brick ranches here too. We have Huber ranches in Westerville, Blendon Township in the Huber Ridge subdivision) and Reynoldsburg.
I worked with a couple a few years ago who had a "stucco home" in Tipp City. It was really "Drivit" and there were lots of problems with it. It was a parade of homes house... ooops they call it Home-a-rama in Dayton.... High end house is the point of my reference. They were not the only Drivit home in their neighborhood with moisture problems. They wanted to be sure homes in Central Ohio were not Drivit.
There were 16343 single family homes on the market in the Columbus Board of REALTORS® MLS this morning. Of those there were listed by exterior of the home:
2481 - Aluminum exterior homes 94 - Asbestos exterior homes 133 - Block exterior homes 4505 - Brick exterior homes 68 - Log exterior homes 173 - Masonry exterior homes 314 - Shingle exterior homes 19 - Steel exterior homes 2122 - Stone exterior homes 2224 - Stucco exterior homes 7503 - Vinyl exterior homes 3113 - Wood exterior homes 312 - Other exterior homes
Add those up and there are a lot of houses on the market! 45393 homes grand total? No it means of the 16343 Central Ohio single family homes ... most homes have 2.7 different kinds of exterior materials.
I doubt some of them. There may be a typo or two. The first "Block" home I looked at is a vinyl or aluminum sided bi-level in Cross Creek (in the City of Columbus in the Hilliard School District) of course the foundation is block. There is a great one of a kind "Block" home on the market in the Clintonville / Beechwold area... and there's Rush Creek in Worthington of course! Great Block homes! There are a number of ranches listed from the 40's and 50's that could be block.
Shingle, there can be Wood Shingles and there can be Asbestos Shingles or there could be Other Shingles.
A bunch of the homes listed as "Masonry" in the Columbus Board of REALTORS® MLS are also listed as Brick. Or homes that I would look at and say "that's a brick house" are listed as masonry.
