I have to say, the condo in Baldwin Park that I have been blogging about for a while now, has turned out beautifully. My customers are closing on it tomorrow, and the home inspector Monday found just three very minor issues with unit. After the home inspection, we had the walk-through with the builder Centerline Homes and it took all of five minutes. It is rare in a new home that there are so few issues. I think most people expect a new home to be perfect, but keep in mind the number of systems, subcontractors, and details involved. That is why I always recommend having a home inspection of new homes. There are rarely serious problems with new homes because of the code inspections, but there are almost always minor issues that can be caught by the home inspector and many times corrected before closing.
I will also give a plug to the window treatment company they are using, because I had a very good experience with them too. The name is Payless Blinds and the owner is Luis Moraguez. You can reach him at 407-932-1441 or mobile 407-873-2705 or by e-mail at PaylessBlinds@aol.com. I have to say that Luis is extemely professional and knows what he is doing when it comes to blinds. I felt that he provided a very good value as well.
On another note, I was contacted by a journalist with the Florida Realtor magazine that wants to interview me about blogging for the next issue. How cool is that?
