Cash For Key's Program The cash for keys program has been around for many years but kept quiet by the banks until the sub-prime mortgage meltdown in 2007 forced many banks to initiate the cash for keys policy as standard procedure. Two big problems banks face when taking a home in a foreclosure or short sale are, the condition of the home after it's occupants vacate, and getting the occupants to leave in a timely manner after the home sells. By giving cash for keys the homeowners are more likely to vacate in a timely manor and leave the property in better condition. By offering this incentive it encourages homeowners to do a short sale which ends up benefiting the bank as well as the homeowners. The amount of cash the bank gives varies. However, It's usually between $2,500 and $3,500 bu...

My Top 5 Spring Cleaning Tips To Get Ready For Spring Cleaning 1. Set aside enough time to accomplish all you have planned. Don't create a three page detailed list for the kitchen and plan to spend 2 hours doing it. You will only get frustrated because you will pull everything out just when you need to move on, and everything will be in a worse state than before. Clear your calendar for the proper amount of time you need, and treat that time as sacred as any other appointment. 2. Make appointments and reservations ahead of time. If you need to rent a carpet cleaner, or are going to call professionals to clean your upholstery, for example, then go ahead and call them and set this up ahead of time to make sure your plan fits other people's schedules. Do the same with family members who yo...

Getting Your Home Ready to Sell--Does Each Room Pass the Yardstick Test? Have you decided to put your home up for sale?  After you have done the standard steps--clean, declutter, and complete all deferred maintenance items--it's time to take a serious look at each room in your house and determine if the furniture placement highlights the spaciousness of the room.  Even small spaces can feel large if the furniture is well placed.  One of the biggest issues seen in homes on the market today is either too much furniture or awkward furniture arrangement.  Either of these usually results in constricted traffic flows throughout rooms. If there isn't ample space to walk around and/or through rooms, buyers will feel that the home is not large enough for them, has insufficient room to entertain ...

Frequently Asked Questions About Mold What causes mold to develop? Mold requires nutrients, water, oxygen and favorable temperatures to grow. Nutrients for mold are present in dead organic material such as wood, paper or fabrics; mold can also derive nutrients from some synthetic products such as paints and adhesives. Mold requires moisture, although some mold species can obtain that moisture from moist air when the relative humidity is above 70 per cent. Many molds thrive at normal indoor temperatures; few if any molds are able to grow below 40 F or above 100 F. Outside this range molds may remain dormant or inactive; they may begin to grow again when the temperature is more favorable. Temperatures well above 100 F will kill mold and mold spores, but the exact temperature required to ...
