The Crucial Importance of Identifying Federal Pacific Electrical Panels in Home InspectionsWhen it comes to ensuring the safety and reliability of electrical systems in a home, few components demand as much attention as the electrical panel. At Double H Inspections, one of our critical focuses during a home inspection is identifying Federal Pacific Electrical (FPE) Panels. These panels, once widely used across the United States, have been found to pose significant safety risks. Let’s explore why these panels are a red flag during home inspections.The Legacy of Federal Pacific Electrical Panels:Federal Pacific Electric Company was a popular manufacturer of electrical panels installed in millions of homes from the 1950s to the 1980s.

Appraisal came in too low?The FHA 203k has a nuance that may just save your bacon. Lets say you have a conventional loan and the appraisal comes in a little low, Change the financing to a Limited 203k and gain up to 10% on the appraised value. That is correct, you heard me right. I was reading another post yesterday and the appraisal came in 3% low so they went back to the seller and the seller said that's too bad, we have other offers. They could have just switched the finaning to a Limited 203k and closed the loan. This is really much easier than it may sound.What else can we do to help close a loan that has an issue with the buyer's rations being out of whack? We had an instance where the loan was to close on a December 26th or 27th...  the buyers went crazy and ran their credit card...

203k is alive and well in Sheridan WYWhile the 203k is actually alive and well everywhere, it is especially the desired loan type in Sheridan WY as the majority of homes were built in 1975. That would make most of them 40-60 years old. I think every home sale should be a renovation loan, fix it like you want going in and enjoy the home as you see it. If there is carpet you don't know how many pets have left something there for you to discover in a few years. Make it your home with new carpeting or floor coverings. Update the kitchen and bathrooms, repaint that bedroom with the red walls and the one with the black walls and ceiling, LOL. There must be something you would like to fix or change, that makes it a renovation loan prospect. Maybe the buyer was looking for a 4 bedroom, 2 bathro...

Want a place rich in lifestyle, culture and amazing horse history? Check out Sheridan and Buffalo Wyoming. This area has been a preferred place for brood mare operations for a very long time and it may simply be the feed. Sure, there are other places with abundant feed, but we may have the least abrasive feed, which helps teeth last longer and thus your investment in brood mares gets more return.  Add that to low taxes, high quality of life and a "cowboy-cosmopolitan" lifestyle unique to this area, and you have a wonderful equestrian world just waiting to be discovered. We know horses and we know ranches. Put that together and we can help put you in this world. Contact us to help.

The Nation's Christmas Tree, which originated in Wyoming this year passed through Sheridan Wyoming today. It's an 83year-old, 67' tall Englemann Spruce. Surprisingly, it's the first tree destined for our US Capitol from WY. Many school children showed up to see it, many of whom made ornaments for it.

Thinking about making a smart investment into land or ranches?  This could be a good time for many reasons. We'd be happy to discuss if you're serious about having an investment that will give you enjoyment. When you own land, you essentially own an "office building" from which you can develop business enterprises limited only by your creativity and vision. We can help. We know of ranches for sale with minerals, water, wildlife and recreation, etc. Don't forget about the good ol' cattle and livestock enterprises too.  John and Galen Chase have made a move to open their own real estate company- Chase Brothers Properties.

From the late 1800s, The area around Sheridan and Big Horn Wyoming has been famous for raising many great horses and still today is home to some outstanding polo and rodeo events.  Perhaps our most famous horse was Foolish Pleasure, Kentucky Derby winner,who was buried on the Horseshoe Ranch in Dayton Wyoming.  Back in the 1920s after WWI, Goelet Gallatin formed the Circle V Polo Company, which was the premier polo operation in the world at the time.  See more about this fantastic history. My grandfather raced horses on the Gallatin Ranch and was the first person to ever beat the Crow Indians in a horse race there at the Big Horn Races. Photo of the Historic Gall...

Demographics suggest that Sheridan, Wyoming is an ideal place for a senior living campus. Better yet, our 94-acre, Morrison Ranch P.U.D. would make a great site for such a development.  Here's the link to more information about it: http://www.morrisonranchsheridanwy.com/Brochure.htm Call me or email me for the demographic data if you're interested.
