Although often overlooked, a roof is one of the most critical elements of your home. If you're in the market to replace an old roof, or planning to build a new one, you have several common roofing types to choose from. Here's what you need to consider when comparing four popular roofing choices.
Asphalt ShinglesEasy to work with, modern asphalt shingles come in a wide variety of colors and styles. The traditional three-tab asphalt shingle – a form of strip asphalt shingles – still outsells newer architectural asphalt shingles, a thicker, heavier shingling that provides a rich, sculptured look to your roof.

cape coral homes for sale: 10 Projects to "Green" Your Home - 09/08/15 09:48 PM
"Going green" means living in a way that's environmentally friendly. It uses less water, less electricity, and less fuel, conserving natural resources while protecting the environment. It also saves money on utility bills, which is something all homeowners can appreciate. From simple to elaborate, here are a few ways to green your house and property.
Focus On the LightReplacing your most-used light bulbs with CFLs will lower your electric bill while producing less heat and lasting longer than your incandescent bulbs.

cape coral homes for sale: Scoping Out a Neighborhood - 09/02/15 10:21 PM
Homebuyers enter the process with one of two mindsets. There are those who know what kind of house they want – the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the type of kitchen and maybe whether or not they want a yard. Then there are those who knowwhere they want to live, such as a specific school district or neighborhood, but haven't completed a wish list of home features.
Seldom does a homebuyer tell her real estate agent that she wants a "three-bedroom, two-bathroom home with a gourmet kitchen, a fireplace and a pool in the backyard, located on J Street in the Mountain Shadows neighborhood."

3 Things to Think About Before Going FSBO
Quick: Off the top of your head, what can a real estate agent do to sell a house that you can't do?
"Frankly, I don't think a Realtor® does much that I can't do myself," a New Jersey homeowner told CBS News. After all, real estate agents just stick a sign in the yard, hold an open house or two, and fill out a couple of papers, right? Since you, too, can perform these duties, why not sell the house yourself and keep the commission money?
This is a fallacy many Americans operate under when judging … (1 comments)

What to Look for When Buying an Older Home
 
Anyone who has visited Fort Myers, Key West, or even Charleston, SC knows how beautiful historic architecture can be. In San Francisco, they've even named their stately, restored Victorian homes "Painted Ladies."
But, are these older homes good buys? Considering that most of a home's components deteriorate with age, you may be not only buying a vintage home, but vintage problems as well.
Here's a quick look at some of the more common problems with older homes.

Right Choice Realty
 
Perhaps it's a little too easy to overlook the importance of water. It's simple, after all, to turn the tap and watch it flow. Consider, though, that only 1 percent of the Earth's water is useable. The rest is either salty or frozen. Not to mention the amount of energy used in acquiring, treating and transporting fresh water to consumers.
 
Saving water in and around your house battles high water bills while helping to save energy and conserve a precious resource.

cape coral homes for sale: Avoid These 5 First-Time Homebuyer Mistakes - 10/03/14 02:37 AM
Avoid These 5 First-Time Homebuyer Mistakes
According to the dictionary, a mistake is an error resulting from deficient knowledge or carelessness. While we can't do anything about carelessness, when it comes to counseling first-time homebuyers, the real estate agent is a tremendous resource to help overcome knowledge deficiency.
That homebuyers lack knowledge about the process only makes sense when you understand that shopping for a home may be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for some. Certainly, it's not something most Americans do frequently. The process is foreign and the pitfalls are hidden. This is why it's so important to find the right real … (0 comments)

cape coral homes for sale: Understanding FHA-Insured Loans in Fort Myers or Cape Coral, Florida. - 02/23/14 08:46 PM
Understanding FHA-Insured Loans
One of the few blessings to come out of the Great Depression was the FHA-insured loan. Although, contrary to what many think, it wasn't created to help low-income buyers get into homeownership. Just as during our recent Great Recession, during the Depression foreclosure rates skyrocketed, leaving lenders in the lurch. The FHA-insured loan was created to protect lenders from losses should the economy once again tank.
That said, the borrower does receive benefits from the loan. First, she benefits from the meticulous appraisal of the home, and second, from the low down payment requirements and attractive interest rates … (0 comments)

cape coral homes for sale: How Cape Coral and Fort Myers Homes are Valued - 01/01/14 10:06 PM
How Cape Coral and Fort Myers Homes are Valued 
Homes are valued a lot like everything else: They are worth what people will pay for them. The Maybach Exelero, the most expensive car in the world, sells for $8 million because that's what people will pay for it. By the same token, you can ask for $8 million for your Hyundai, Ford or Chrysler, but don't count on getting it – you'll get what the market says it's worth.
So, how do we know what a willing buyer will spend for a house? Although we may never be certain, by looking … (0 comments)
