PND means the home is under contract and the price shown is the last listed price. STL means the home has sold, and the price shown is the price the home sold for, but not necessarily the net price. If a seller assist was given towards closing costs or possible repairs needed following a home inspection, this has not been deducted.What is interesting is the green arrows, 9 homes out of the 14 have had price reductions from their original listing price. This indicates a more cautious market by buyers in Daylesford Lakes. This Toll Bros. development has undergone some required repairs over the past few years a...

One thing you should take into consideration is whether or not your current insurance carrier offers the best insurance for all of your properties. Another thing to consider is that if your home is worth a great deal more than the average home, standard coverage may not be enough to protect you completely. In cases such as these, specialized High Value Home Insurance may be required. Sometimes the company that insures one home doesn't offer the best policy for other properties. There are many factors that go into determining ...

  Frustrated with those black streaks on your roof. I had a conversation about this with Mike Hansen, our local roofing contractor at Dunbar Roofing and Siding in Berwyn, PA and he sent me this aticle they had written some time back. Hope it helps.       The black streaks we see on roofs are caused by an ancient bacteria named "Gloeocapsa (pronounced Glow-e-o-cap-sa) Magma." More commonly known as "Blue Green Algae" many roofers mistakenly refer to this tiny-little life form as just plain old "algae."   This one-celled, one-chromosome bacteria has abilities to: 1) Turn black to protect itself from the UV rays of the sun. 2) To produce an outer-cell sticky substance for roof adherence.  3) To replicate at a very fast rate.   Black streaking roofs became a problem during the 1990's. The b...
