complete home inspections inc: 'Tis the Beginning of a New Day... - 05/16/14 07:39 PM
     Every now and then, I wake up and my mind is really engaged and there are days when my mind just seems to go through the motions of the mundane. Mindlessly, I roll out of the sack, meander into the kitchen and pour a cup of the elixir of life. I shuffle up the staircase to the ‘man cave’, stir the sleeping cyclops and gaze into its all-seeing eye. 3 o’clock and all is well with my world.
     Slowly but surely, the synapse begin to fire as the warm elixir seeps into the bloodstream and rejuvenates the still slumbering … (10 comments)

complete home inspections inc: The Spring Selling Season - Off to a Great Start - 04/02/14 07:07 PM
     It seems as if the spring selling season has started with a vengeance here in Middle Tennessee. Monday, we started the week with only three inspections on the books. Come to think of it, John and I only had one inspection a piece on Monday. Monday and Tuesday, activity started to pick up and we were able to schedule several jobs that would keep us busy through Wednesday. Yesterday, the pent up demand was in full force.
     Poor Jane, she did not get a moments rest. It seems as if every time she laid the phone down it would ring … (33 comments)

      At Complete Home Inspections, Inc. we are constantly looking for ways to improve our services and increase market share. We do this by creating a constant presence in the offices. We do this in several ways, however; the most successful one is the candy bowl that either sets by the gate keeper’s desk or in the kitchen.
    This week, we are giving our agents a treat - not a treatment by giving them some of Annelle’s Chocolate Wodka Brownies. Oh! Talk about something to die for. Needless to say, they were gone in a heartbeat. All that was left was … (18 comments)

complete home inspections inc: Sha-Sha, Ta-Ta, Bebe - 03/25/14 08:20 PM
     I like the Creole folks in Louisiana. They have a culture and dialect that is as unique as the people. While there a few years back, I picked up on some sayings. Annelle, my marketing person/Realtor liaison, reminded me of one I had forgotten; ‘Sha-Sha, Ta-Ta, Bebe’.  ‘Sha-Sha, Ta-Ta, Bebe’ is one of those bastardized phrases that is a mixture of words that by themselves mean one thing and when put together mean something else. That is what I love about the language and culture of the good ‘ol USA. Loosely translated, ‘Sha-Sha, Ta-Ta, Bebe’ is something that we all … (22 comments)

complete home inspections inc: AATP!!! - 03/24/14 07:07 PM
     As most of you know, one of my pet peeves are real estate professions who do not answer their phones or return calls in a timely manner. Such was the case last Saturday when I was inspecting ‘The Pig’. The buyer’s agent was out of town and they failed to give me the combo code. (shame on them!) As soon as I realized the property was on a combo not a Sentry lock there was the AW $hit moment. A quick call to the listing agent got - you guessed it! The dreaded voice mail.

     Although I was not whistling while I worked the other day, there must have been some rehabbers that where singing and dancing to another tune while making improvements to the pig. Yes, there are those who just love to do whimsical, crazy things and gloss it over as just another day’s work in the coal mines. Yes, the quality is going down, down, down.

complete home inspections inc: Due To Excess Personal Storage… - 03/12/14 07:23 PM
     Some people are hoarders. Like pack rats, they have more crap stuffed into every nook and cranny than they know what to do with. Despite what their real estate advisor tells them, they refuse to remove the junk and clutter. Albeit despite all, someone looks past the bad case of stuffitis, falls in love with the property and writes an offer.
     Home inspections are evaluations of readily accessible areas of the property. It is not up to the home inspector to wade through piles of personal belongings looking for defects. When it gets this bad, the only thing one can … (25 comments)

If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.
     ~ Jim Rohn
     Somewhere in my life I read or heard someone say, ‘Most people do not plan to fail, they just fail to plan.’ I can relate to that and the above quote in that for many years, I just went with the flow. However, as I have gotten older and wiser, I now have a written plan my personal and business life. I feel that it is better to be the master … (9 comments)

complete home inspections inc: Gee How I Love Windows - Yeah! Right! - 12/09/13 05:52 PM
     Windows. The operating system designed by Microsoft. There are many Mac users like myself that abhor the operating system and avoid it like the plague. I often laugh and joke with my friends saying that I now type on my keyboard with formerly Microsoft stained finger tips. But that's not to say that I don't use the system occasionally. The software that I used to do my inspection reports is a Windows-based program.
     Sadly, the Windows XP program operating system that I have used, for what seems like centuries, will no longer be supported by Microsoft. Hence the change and … (19 comments)

Time is Fun...

      Jeremiah the Bullfrog said, time is fun when you are eating flies. While not exactly one of my cullinary delights, I have been on the fly and time has gone by quickly.
      But then, time is really all I have. Every day, I have choices. Do I trade my time for money or trade my money for time? I find it a queer balancing act. Like waltzing with a partner with two left feet, I lumber across the floor. Twirling and whirling I hesitate momentarily to reagin balance before resuming my Odyssey in 3 quarter … (15 comments)

Cheating Fate...

      Every now and then, I run across someone who either likes to cheat fate or doesn't have the brains to bell a buzzard.
      Garage doors are the largest moving object in your home and they can be deadly. Today, garage door openers are equipped with two safety features. One is the mechanical reversing. When the downward moving door encounters 8 pounds of resistance, it is supposed to stop and reverse direction. 
        The second safety feature is the photo eye beam. These are to be placed between 3 - 6 inches above the level of … (40 comments)

Fuse Boxes - Are They Safe?            
     Many older properties still have fuse boxes. While, these antiquated devices are okay, fuse panels, unless altered can be deemed safe. I consult my clients to consider replacing these with modern devices. Here's why:
     Older style fuse boxes serve the same purpose as circuit breaker boxes in that the fuse controls the amount of electrical current from appliances within a home. However; fuse boxes are outdated by modern standards. The advantage to having circuit breakers in a home is that instead of replacing a fuse each time it is used, circuit … (25 comments)

Plastic Dryer Vents - A Fire Waiting for a Place to Happen...          Plastic dryer venting has been banned from residential usage for several years now. However; I still run into this material from time-to-time in newer and older properties. This product is considered a fire safety hazard and should be replaced if you have this present in your home.      Most households use flexible foil as the connector between the dryer and the exterior discharge. Although not much better than it's plastic counterpart, it has been approved for residential use by Fire Marshal's in many municipalities.      Optimally, the better … (56 comments)
