homes for sale hoover alabama: Time to Replace the Roof - Go Green - 10/23/08 09:54 AM
Most roofs come with a life expectancy - people say "this is a 30 year roof or a 20 year roof".  That means you can expect the roof to start leaking by the time it hits that timeframe. 
There are things that can cut the life of your roof, like having branches from trees lying on the roof (I don't think you should cut down the tree because the branches are touching it, just keep them trimmed back).  Fungus can attack the roof (this is what makes the roof look stained).  This staining can be cleaned off (it's not that expensive) … (0 comments)

Now that school is back in session in Hoover, Alabama our thoughts will be turning to football.  Well, not EVERYONE here is totally focused in football.  At the Shades Mountain Park the fall ball registration has just been completed - that's BASEBALL.  Fall ball games are played on Sunday afternoons at Shades Mountain Park.  Games will begin after Labor Day and run through the end of October.  Fall Ball is not as competitive as the spring season and is a great time for kids who have never played before to learn some skills.  OF course there are those who can't LIVE … (0 comments)

homes for sale hoover alabama: Don't Let Bad Press Ruin Your Dreams - 07/24/08 01:20 PM
Every day when I turn on the radio, or look at the news on msn, I see bad news about the economy and the housing market.  Some of this bad news is not really true - it's just stuff that sells.  Everybody I talk to has this terrible picture of the housing market right now and a lot of what they think is just NOT TRUE. Home Sales in Hoover Alabama are good.
I put two houses on the market last week and one of them already has a contract on it.  In fact we had a second offer that we … (0 comments)

homes for sale hoover alabama: Handicapped Accessible Home in Hoover Alabama - 07/23/08 12:26 PM
As people age it is harder for them to get up and down stairs. Ths is just a fact. It is best to find a home with all the bedrooms on the same level.  Most homes today though, have the master on the main and the other bedrooms up.  If you DO find all the bedrooms on the same level you are in a garden home neighborhood with all the homes close together, no trees and no room for storage.
This home which is JUST LISTED FOR SALE IN HOOVER ALABAMA has all the rooms on one level PLUS has a … (2 comments)

In today's Real Estate market with the use of the internet, many home buyers choose homes off the web, then go "window shopping" and drive by the houses for sale before they ever contact their realtor about making an appointment.  Will your house be crossed off the list before those prospective buyers ever get a chance to see the inside?  How your house looks from the curb creates an emotional desire to own your home and a desire to take the next step.
How do you have great curb appeal?  With lots of attention to detail.  Your house should stand out on the … (0 comments)

homes for sale hoover alabama: Buying A Home With A Pool - Get An Inspection - 07/02/08 10:29 AM
Recently I sold a beautiful home with a georgeous swimming pool.  The yard surrounding the pool was beautifully landscaped and it was like an oaisis away from the hustle an bustle of everyday life. I love to swim and have always wanted a pool in my backyard.
Prior to putting the house on the market, the sellers got a pool inspection to make sure everything was in order.  The pool inspector looked at the pool surface, pool decking, pool equiptment, and safety issues surrounding the pool.  I was suprised at how many "safety issues" were addressed - not just the mechanics part of … (1 comments)

homes for sale hoover alabama: Buying A Home - Save Gas - 07/01/08 05:00 AM
In Birmingham we get those hot days with the temperature inversion that holds in the humidity and smog.  I am out in it every day looking at Homes for Sale in the Hoover Alabama area. Then we see the signs over the freeway that tell us not to drive unless it is necessary.  On these days your eyes burn and your sinuses flair up; it's really hot and you are just plain miserable.  In the 1960's the pollution was bad because of the industrial plants.  We still have some of those today (thank goodness for the EPA), but a lot of … (0 comments)

homes for sale hoover alabama: Selling Your Home - Fill Those Shady Spots With Flowers - 06/21/08 02:41 AM
As you can tell from reading my former blogs, I really like trees.  One "problem" with trees is they create a lot of shade.  Having shade in your yard is GOOD for your electric bill and great for relaxing away from the hot sun, but it can make it difficult to have a lot of blooming flowers.
Several years ago, I went to visit a friend who had a very shady backyard.  All along her fence she had these tall bushes (15') with these beautiful blue flowers.  Each flower was a little smaller than a baseball.  She told me that the … (1 comments)

homes for sale hoover alabama: Lantana Great for the Hot Days of Summer. - 06/20/08 11:05 AM
Yes, Summer is here!  Temperatures in the 90's, and the humidity makes it feel like over 100!  Those plants - such as petunia - that looked so good in May, have to be watered constantly, and even then are beginning to look really tired out. So what about Curb Appeal!!  I think Lantanas are a wonderful choice for our hot summers.  They come in several colors: bright golden yellow, yellow and orange blends and lavender.  The golden variety is a perennial and will come back next summer (not in the spring for those of us who tend to be impatient).
