western new york real estate: We can learn something everyday - even when you first don't see it! - 02/14/10 07:55 AM
I have traveling back from a great seminar yesterday and like many other had issues with my travel plans.  It took 17.5 hours to get from Dallas to Buffalo, but during the day many lessons were learned.
My airline had to cancel my flight and was told they re-booked me on another flight.  My first thought was that's great it's 5:30 in the morning and instead of getting home by noon I'll make it a few hours later.  Well, they were going to get me home by noon... on Tuesday!  Yes, 4 days later!  That wasn't going to work.

Buffalo, NY Home Inspector John Villella, owner of All Pro Home Inspection talks about some appraisers walking down a slippery slope.
Recently, I have noticed some appraisers in Western New York that refuse to make a decision or are not competent enough to make an educated decision.  For example - not knowing if a basement stairway is stable, not understanding a moisture penetration issue in a basement of a 148 year old home, and the most alarming issue recently is the lack of the necessary tools to complete the appraisal process.  These examples are just a few issues that I have had to … (0 comments)

Western New York Home Inspector John Villella, owner of All Pro Home Inspection says it again... working CO Detector are a must have device in your home.
It's been said hundreds of times and we have all heard it before, but having a working CO Detector in your home is just common sense. However, I am always amazed while conducting home inspections daily the amount of homes that do not have this life saving device in the home.  It's a $30 investment for a good CO Detector and can save your life. 
There have been several close calls in Western New York (WNY) this … (0 comments)
