FINALLY...Orange County, North Carolina has rolled out it's long awaited new website! Well, long awaited by me and probably the other real estate agents who specialize in Chapel Hill, Carrboro and other parts of Orange County! We use the information available in the tax records and GIS maps to determine all kinds of things...like who actually owns the property we are looking at (yes, folks have tried to list for sale a home they are only renting) and if any improvements have been made to the structures. We can find out if the taxes are current and how much the taxes are and determine the tax value of the property. We also look up legal descriptions (so we don't try to sell your neighbors property instead of yours...again; it's happened) and we can tell who owned the home before you boug...

The recent debate over on Norma Toering’s post about whether or not a plasma tv attached to the wall is a fixture or not reminds me of a sale I had earlier this year. It all ended well and never degenerated into a “war” but it did bring up some issues that will very likely need clarification in our contracts sooner rather than later! My seller and I had discussed at time of listing that his audio/video system, which was controlled from a special closet in the Family Room, would likely be a point of discussion or negotiation when the right buyer came along. Not only was the plasma TV mounted on the wall but there was other equipment involved and the complex system controlled entertainment in some of the Bedrooms as well as the Living Room and Kitchen. He was more than willing to consider...

Foam Insulation versus Fiberglass Insulation - Comparing R Values Insulation R-Values Can Be Misleading - Here's the Real Scoop on Real Life R-Values Guest Author - Thanks to Tu Nguyen at Healthy Home Insulation, in partnership with Energy Wise.  Fiberglass Insulation Versus Foam Insulation - R Value Comparison  When choosing an insulation, don't just compare the R-values, because these are generated under laboratory conditions. "Although the fundamental heat transmission characteristics of a material or system can be determined accurately, actual performance in a structure may vary from that indicated in a laboratory (20.3)*." What does this mean?  A material can have a stated R value under perfect conditions in a closed laboratory, but perform very differently in real life.  The R-val...

At the end of last year, when the change over to digital TV was imminent, I decided to come into the 21 st century and dump my cobbled together stereo system and 400 pound television (well, it FELT that way) and call in a professional. I mean, who isn’t wooed by the idea of a flat panel TV with sound streaming through quality audio speakers and the ability to play my ipod in sync with cool pictures streaming on the TV screen during a party? So I did what any self respecting Realtor does…I asked a Realtor for a recommendation! Another agent in my office had just done the same and she was thrilled with her set up. I enthusiastically wrote down the number for “her guy.” Rich Dlesk of Audio Video One in Chapel Hill, NC was happy to come over and sit down with me and talk about my options. B...
