By: Stacey Freed By the way, bleach doesn’t work. And don’t try to scrape it off, either. Ugh. Mold. It’s ugly. It’s tenacious. It’s the uninvited guest that keeps visiting — no matter how rude you are to it. But, unwittingly, you may be setting up the perfect conditions for mold’s return: a food source, lots of moisture, and a pleasant temperature. “You’ve got to eliminate one of those three legs of the stool so mold won’t grow,” says Pete Duncanson, director of system development for ServiceMaster Restore. “And it’s always easier to prevent than to remediate.” Assuming you like warm showers and a comfy thermostat setting, there’s not much you can do about the temperature mold loves. But you can get rid of mold — and permanently prevent it — by controlling the other two factors: food a...

By: Nancy Mann Jackson Like bugs. And leggy flowers. And sky-high energy bills. Dog days of summer? More like the mosquito days. And super sweaty days. By the end of summer it can feel like bugs, grime, sweat, and heat have taken over your home. And you get to pay for it with high cooling bills. Ugh. Here are the most annoying things about summer and how to get rid of them: #1 Spiders and Ants:When the days are long and hot, bugs get thirsty, just like we do. So they may be invading your home in search of water. To cut them off from your homey oasis, you’ll need to make sure your doors and windows are sealed, but also check where pipes and wires enter your house for tight seals, too. How to get rid of spiders:Vacuum your home thoroughly, clear away any cobwebs, and throw away the vacuum...

By: Houselogic.com Some trees are more trouble than they’re worth. Before you head to a nursery, see our slideshow. Then, see even more trees readers hate. 1. Silver maple (Acer saccharinum):Big, fast-growing, and a dandy shade tree, silver maple is widespread in eastern states and the Midwest. Unfortunately, the speed at which the tree grows makes for weak, brittle wood that may break during severe storms. The shallow root system invades sewage pipes and drain fields, and is notorious for cracking driveways and walkways. 2. Ash (Fraxinus):Sturdy and tough, the many varieties of ash that populate North America are some of our most beloved trees. Professional baseball bats are made from its wood — how American is that? But the venerable ash is threatened by the emerald ash borer, a tiny ...

By: Lisa Kahn The timeless beauty of versatile hues. The kitchen is the heart of the household, a place where you prepare meals and make memories. So it only makes sense that your kitchen’s color scheme reflects your unique tastes and personality, right?  The answer to that is yes — and no. Although there may be a special hue that gets your heart thumping, there are many reasons why it makes sense to opt for a neutral palette in your kitchen. Many design professionals agree that using shades like white, beige, or gray as the foundation for your kitchen not only open up a spectrum of colorful possibilities, but enhance the value of your home. The Never-Regret Factor:“Timeless colors are perfect, whether for resale or for your dream home,” says Jackie Jordan, Dallas-based director of colo...

By: Houselogic.com Passing the inspection advances you to the next level: closing the deal on your house. Getting beyond the home inspection is sort of like advancing to the next level in a video game. When you get past this step, you get to advance to a fresh, exciting place — your new home, to be exact. In Every Inspection, There Are Stakes for Buyers and Sellers:Once the buyer has made, and you’ve accepted, the offer, your home will get the once-over from the buyer’s home inspector. The inspection is usually a contingency of the offer, meaning the buyer can back out based on serious problems discovered. The lender also expects an inspection to make sure it’s making a good investment. Makes sense, right? During the home inspection, an inspector will examine the property for flaws. Bas...

By: Houselogic.com What you need to know to get the best deal for you. When it comes to evaluating offers, what’s good for the goose may not necessarily be good for the gander. One seller may be overjoyed with their offer, while another may be disappointed. That means, in order to figure out whether an offer you receive is “good” —and whether you should negotiate — you’ll need to do two things: Think back to your original goals, and ask yourself whether this offer helps you meet them. Get advice from your agent, who can help get the best deal for your specific situation, wants, and needs.  So what do you, the seller, need to know before negotiate with a home buyer? We’ve got answers to some commonly asked questions. What’s a Counteroffer?When you receive an offer, you can accept it as-i...

By: Houselogic.com It’s not always about the money (except when it is). The day will come — and it will be a wonderful, joyous, do-a-happy-dance day — when you receive an offer, or multiple offers, for your home. And on that day, you’re going to face a question you may not have previously considered: How do you know if an offer is the best one for you? Your listing agent will be a big help here. They will understand and help you suss out the merits and faults  of an offer because — believe it or not — it’s not always about price. One buyer’s beautifully high offer might not look so good anymore, for example, if you discover that it’s contingent upon you moving out a month earlier than planned. Or, conversely, you may prefer speed over price, particularly if you’re moving to a new city. ...

By: Stacey Freed A little shelf here, a big shelf there. You’d be surprised where they can fit. Finally, you get to take that beach vacation in the dead of winter. But where is your beach towel?!? You know it’s somewhere in that linen closet, but (sigh) it’s so crammed you can’t find it. One of these days, you’re going to have to figure out how to get more storage space so you can find this seasonal stuff faster. But the last thing you want to do is go out and buy more stuff to put more stuff in. There’s a better way — shelves. Not the bookshelf kind (they only take up floor space), but shelves you can incorporate into your home’s architecture for an interesting, personalized look that also solves nagging storage issues. Here are five unexpected places shelves can boost your home’s stor...
