Do you see a problem or issue,  with this photo?  Look, very carefully.  I would remove this duct work as well as replace this duct work.  Replace with new.  Notice the insualtion that is around the duct work?  This acts like a sponge and holds water so it is best to remove it. This was a crawl space that had water damage from the kitchen and water affected the kitchen area as well as water got down into vent and the weight of the water disengaged duct work in crawl space.  Notice, any other issue?  Do you see any other issue? Water damage can create so much havoc to homes, if not corrected.  Think water.  Think Water Damage.  Think Mold Damage and think Mold Removal. If you ever have a Water Damage, what do you do first?Think, turning off the water to home until the leak or plumbing is...

Buying a house is a significant financial investment, but once you've found the home of your dreams, you'll need to figure out how much of a down payment you want to make. Most homebuyers believe that buying a house requires a 20% down payment. However, you may only need a down payment of as little as 3.5 percent to buy a home in Charlotte, NC. In fact, you may need no down payment at all. The times have changed, and a smaller down payment is now possible. Smaller down payments are even encouraged in certain situations.  At the same time, a larger down payment will help in various cases.

When it comes to the down payment, there are several factors to consider before settling on the amount.  What...

 WHAT'S COMING SOON TO CHARLOTTE Three new businesses are coming to Charlotte in the coming weeks and months adding to the excitement of a "more normal" post-pandemic life-style... a selfie museum, a Jewish deli, and the first Golden Goose store in North Carolina. DREAM Selfie MuseumHave you heard of selfie museums? Do you know what a selfie museum is? As someone who has never actually taken a selfie anywhere... this was a new concept for me. So I've just learned that a selfie museum is a type of art gallery whose purpose is to provide a setting for visitors to pose for photographs to be posted on social media sites, such as Instagram. Selfie museums include colorful backdrops, oversize props, and optical illusions. And now... opening in Charlotte on June 16th is DREAM Selfie, offering ...

Speechless Sundays - Speechless Skies Ray and I took a leisurely boat ride this evening and not too far into it, a huge bank of large, black clouds rolled in. We returned home, made dinner and fully expected to do our reading and writing after dinner. About an hour before sunset, the skies brightened up and we had a perfectly lovely sky show.  I think the fact that the gorgeous sky was totally unexpected, is what made it even more beautiful for us. You know, we love our sunsets! Have a beautiful week ahead!© Debe Maxwell | The Maxwell House Group | RE/MAX Executive | CharlotteBroker@icloud.com | Speechless Sundays - Speechless Skies

It’s National Homeownership Month - Here are 10 Really Good Reasons to Celebrate National Homeownership Month began as a week-long celebration of homeownership in 1995. In 2002, President George W. Bush proclaimed June as National Homeownership Month saying, “Homeownership is an important part of the American Dream…A home provides shelter and a safe place where families can prosper and children can thrive. For many Americans, their home is an important financial investment, and it can be a source of great personal pride and an important part of community stability.” During an interview back in the 1980’s, I was motivated by Warren Buffet’s words, “Never pay another man’s mortgage.” I was so inspired by his words, I bought my first house and never looked back. In fact, when I started doi...
