Radon :

Buyers Beware of Inferior Testing

Mitigation

3 bdrm • 2.1 bth • 2480 sf • Bonus + family rm • $550,000

From Our Blog, 9/23/13 - 1/14/13: The house was built in 1910 and although it has hardly been touched since then (which is an excellent thing), it also means there is quite a bit of differed maintenance. We honestly believe that the house hasn't been painted in 30+ years. We have been talking colors on this one, and are actually surprising ourselves at the choices we have made. Think historical colors painted in a modern way. So excited for this one! Our favorite detail of the house is under the eaves. Beautiful corbels holding exposed beams that encircle the house and the ornate rafters are an extremely unique feature. Although Craftsman homes are known for their simplicity, this one seems different. The extravagant detailing makes it stand out...and we like that! Now the inside is equally as impressive or even more so then the exterior. All original wood work, plaster that is still in tact, original lighting, even the floors are in decent shape! Like everything else, the living room has basically been untouched since built. There is a lot of work that needs to be done on the walls throughout the house and the trim needs a little elbow grease, but we are really excited to put some imagination into these old, historic spaces and give them new life without ruining their integrity. The dining room is one of the most impressive spaces in the house. All the wood work is immaculate (for an old house that is). We love the lights in the box beams, well... we love the box beams too! We imagine a grand dining room with a historic feel but a modern twist in the future.

The kitchens in these old homes are charming. They just don't live up to today's needs. We are big fans of traditional kitchens but this one needs a little help with layout and space design. The three bedrooms are large and full of light. Another unique feature all three have? Large closets!! This bathroom was hilarious. Almost like a time capsule. The paint is peeling off every surface and although a large bathroom, the layout is not doing anything for it. We plan on a full remodel for this space complete with a unique shower! Basements in the city = additional square footage! This basement is large and perfect for finishing. Ideas include a media room, laundry, bathroom and office space. It will be the perfect retreat. She's quite the house and we are very happy with the finished result (and to finally get a day off). This project has taught us a lot but one thing is certain, we love old houses and we are in this for the long haul.

Our world revolves around beautiful homes and design. We live the dream of sprucing up old, forgotten homes, adding character where there isn't, and selling them to someone who appreciates their beauty as much as we do. We live and breathe this lifestyle and use everyday to push ourselves further in this career.

Radon causes an estimated 250 lung cancer deaths every year in Oregon. Precise and accurate measuring helps protect your family. The improper installation of a radon reduction system may lower the radon, but can detract from your home and cost you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in energy bills over the years you live in your new home. An invisible and odorless radioactive gas, radon comes from soil and rocks. Houses are often under vacuum due to wind, stack effect and other variables. And because foundations are not airtight, radon is drawn inside houses through small openings in the foundation or from exposed crawlspace soil. If performed properly, a 2-day radon measurement during the inspection period provides a snapshot of the average radon level in the home. Unfortunately, untrained people using un-calibrated equipment and/ or providing recommendations that do not conform to EPA guidance are common — remember — you get what you pay for. Always hire a certified radon measurement professional. Buyers should get involved in the design of the reduction system. Radon reduction is accomplished by using suction to intercept radon before it enters the home. Sellers usually hire the contractor with the lowest bid, frequently leaving buyers with an inferior radon reduction system. A poorly designed or installed radon reduction system can detract from the appearance of the home and generate noise that can disrupt sleep and irritate neighbors. Installing an active soil depressurization system without sealing cracks and covering crawlspaces with a membrane may

add a hundred dollars or more each year in heating costs — especially homes with a crawlspace or a combination basement and crawlspace. Improperly designed or installed radon reduction systems can suck air from inside the house through the same openings and exposed crawlspace soil that initially allowed radon to enter the house. By choosing the lowest bidder, sellers unwittingly install reduction systems that can cost the new owner thousands of dollars in additional heating and air-conditioning costs over the years they own the house. The bottom line: Hire a certified professional to measure radon. If the house needs a radon reduction system, get involved in the design so your home has a quiet, attractive and energy efficient radon reduction system.

From the Editor: Community Energy Project

As Realtors, we get so busy trying to remember everything we need to do for our clients, and sometimes we forget the good stuff. The communities we work in are so important to our business, not only because our clients live or move into them, but because it holds good information for our clients. Yes it’s one more thing we need to know, BUT, the Community Energy Project is something to share. It makes us look good to know about them and it’s great info to share with our clients. One of the great things CEP does is Lead-safe projects workshops. Here are the details, give your clients this info!

• Lead exposure is linked to Alzheimer’s disease and cancer • Lead paint dust is common in older homes and nearly half of all lead poisonings are a result of remodeling activity!

{ TECH TIP } Screenshots Especially if you’re a beginner (or an expert), it’s frequently useful to capture the image of what’s on the screen — an error message or diagram, for example. In Windows: PrintScreen key copies the whole screen image, as a graphic, onto your invisible Clipboard, so you can paste into an e-mail mes-

sage or any other program (“This is what I’m seeing! What do I do now?!”). If you add the Alt key, you copy only the front window. On the Mac: Press Command-Shift-3. (Command is the key with the propeller on it, next to the Space bar.) You hear a snapshot sound, and you get a graphics file on your desktop—a picture of the entire screen image.

*If you press Command-Shift-4 instead, you get a crosshair cursor; you can draw across just one portion of the screen. Or, if you now tap the Space bar, you turn the cursor into a little camera icon. You can now click on just one window or toolbar that you want to copy. *In both cases, you can hold down the Control key to copy the image to the Clipboard instead of leaving a file on the hard drive.

Let's Talk Rubbish:

A NEW RESOLUTION... January, as declared by the National Association of Professional Organizers, is GO (Get Organized) Month. In a research conducted by University of Scranton, getting organized is #2 in the Top Ten New Year’s Resolutions for 2014. Even with the best intentions, sadly, less than 50% of these commitments to de-clutter will make it 30 days into the New Year.

By concentrating on what we really want (a clean living space or an organized office), the daily choices we make and the resources we enlist will naturally support our desires, rather than being tasks on an endless to do list soon to be abandoned. Why not join me and give it a try?

The exact reason for broken resolutions is unclear, but year after year the results always seem to be the same.

Betty

So, maybe it’s time to stop the vicious circle of insanity and approach resolutions from a new perspective, one in which we stand a better chance of success and lasting results. Instead of resolving to “get organized,” what if we make the commitment to listen to our inner voice and to say ‘No!” to things that add stress and worry to our lives? Rather than making a list of what we hope to do, achieve or acquire in the New Year, we begin saying “No!” to the acquisition of things and projects we don’t really need or want? What if we give ourselves permission to say “No!” to the “shoulds” and the “have to’s” and instead focus on the activities we want and choose to do?

Cheers to You, the New Year and the freedom a strong and clear “No!” can bring!

Ready to Sell PDX Shares Tips to Get Your Home Ready to Sell by Staci Byers

Thinking of selling your home? Buyers respond to houses that they can see themselves in, where they can imagine entertaining, relaxing and having fun. Most buyers form an opinion about the home within ten seconds of a viewing, so the first impression is everything. A well prepared home is essential from day one. Follow these basic tips prior to listing to result in a quicker sale and a less stressful experience: Curb appeal The outside of your home is your potential buyer's first impression, so make it count. Spend some time cleaning up the yard, trimming the trees and bushes, and keep the grass freshly mowed. Your front porch should be inviting and welcoming as well. A fresh doormat and potted plants or flowers suited for the season give potential buyers a great first impression. De-clutter and pack away personal items Potential buyers try to imagine themselves living in your home, so looking at your personal shot-glass collection or children's toys makes this a little difficult for them. It is essential to spend some time removing personal items and clearing out anything that is unnecessary — this may even require utilizing an off-site storage space. Color Color is such an important element

in a home. Having a cohesive color palette throughout pulls the spaces together and creates a natural flow that is inviting and calming. A $20 gallon of paint can transform a quirky pink bathroom into a nice and inviting space. Choose neutral colors, as this creates a backdrop that will help potential buyers imagine their own furnishings in the home. Furniture arrangement Furniture should be functional and look comfortable. For example, a dining room should be a dining room — and not your craft room. Each room should have a clearly defined purpose. Remove any unnecessary furniture items, as this creates good flow and shows the buyer the true size and potential of each room. Clean, clean, clean Every surface in the home should sparkle. Windows should be washed and floors polished. This includes tidying up your pantries, closets, and garage, as buyers look at every usable space. Consider hiring someone to do a thorough cleaning prior to the open house.

Interior Designer Staci Byers of Ready to Sell PDX specializes in preparing owner occupied homes for listing.

the Importance

of a Pre-approval Letter I

f you are in the market to buy a home this year, please consider the importance of getting pre-approved for a loan before you start the house hunting process. This advice applies to both first time and multiple home buyers. It’s incredibly important to be certain that you qualify for a specific price range, before you go through all the work of finding a house and making an offer. It will save you all kinds of time and effort to pinpoint the right home price range for you. What’s more, you’ll have a stronger bargaining position with the seller if you have a letter confirming that you are pre-approved. Sellers want to know that you are, in fact, capable of buying the house that you just made an offer on—and that they won’t lose other offers by accepting yours only to have it fall through at the time of financing. It is very possible that this letter could be the determining factor in the sellers accepting your offer over another buyer. There has been a recent crackdown in the lending world on the secondary market on credit guidelines and debt ratios. As a result, it has become more difficult to qualify for a loan—especially with the one-point rise in long term rates this past year. A pre-approval letter will show sellers that you’ve already leapt this particular hurdle, and they’ll have nothing to worry about. So really, the question becomes— why wouldn’t you?

Please don’t hesitate to take the time to be pre-approved. I would be happy to discuss our simple and straightforward pre-approval process with anyone in the market to buy a new home—call or email me any time to set up a free consultation.

All the best,

Rich Forde

WINTER TIP:

Reverse Your Ceiling Fan Direction to Save Energy When it’s the middle of winter and freezing outside, it's probably safe to say that most of us aren't thinking about our ceiling fans. However, running fans in the colder months can actually save up to 10% on heating costs and is as simple as flipping a switch! In the summer months, the slightly angled blades of a ceiling fan turn counterclockwise to move air down, making people feel cooler due to a concept known as the wind chill effect. During winter, the warm air generated by your heating system naturally rises to the ceiling while cooler air sinks. By switching the direction that your fan blades turn, that cooler air is drawn upwards, which forces the warmer air near the ceiling back down into the space. How does this save energy? Since thermostats are typically located at human level, keeping the warm air low where it’s needed means you can turn the temperature down a few notches and still stay warm.

Additionally, running the fan at the lowest speed will circulate air while reducing the feeling of actual air movement in the room. While this technique should work in standard size rooms, it works especially well in vaulted or tall ceiling spaces where the people occupying the space are further separated from the warm air collecting at the ceiling. Furthermore, even though running a fan uses a small amount of electricity, there is generally still a net savings in energy use.

On most fan models, there is generally a small switch on the fan to reverse the direction (I actually had to remove a few screws to reach ours).

ment debt equal to, or greater than, the debt paid off on the relinquished property. Any cash not spent or debt relief is considered “boot� to the Taxpayer and taxable.

Like kind is generously defined. All real estate is like kind with all other real estate as long as what is being sold and bought falls into the following categories – rental, commercial or land held for investment (not inventory). For example, commercial is like kind with residential rental. Land is like kind with commercial.

Exchange funds can be used to pay closings costs (commissions, escrow, title and recording fees) and to pay for the replacement property. The regulations do not allow the use of exchange funds to pay loan fees, appraisal fees, the CPA’s bill and many other expenses the Taxpayer might incur during the exchange.

Deadlines begin to run when the sale of the relinquished property closes. The Taxpayer has 180 days to close on the replacement property but only the first 45 days of the 180 to identify the replacement property.

Exchange companies are necessary when the relinquished property is being sold to one party and the replacement property is being purchased from someone else, even when both transactions close the same day. The exchange company and escrow company need time to coordinate their paperwork for the closing. The sooner the Taxpayer contacts an exchange company the better outcome for their exchange.

Identification rules are extremely strict and exchanges are being audited for compliance. Most Taxpayers may list only three properties. The identification must be a signed writing, sent to the exchange company within the 45 day deadline. It must be unambiguous in describing the replacement property, including unit numbers for condos and percentages for fractional ownership. To get the best result in an exchange, the Taxpayer will reinvest the cash in the exchange account and will obtain replace-

Renaissance Homes Celebrates 30 Years in Business By Nicole DeCosta

2014

marks Renaissance Homes’ 30th year in business. Thank you for being a part of our journey. While a lot has changed in 30 years, one constant drives every member of our team — a passion for homebuilding. We find this industry inspiring, innovative and rewarding. We’re excited to make 2014 a very personal one by sharing our staff, projects, tips, behind-thescenes photos and special events each month. We’ll also share our talented trade partners and spotlight unique milestones along our 30 year journey. Thank you, all of you. As we spend the year reflecting on where we’ve been, we’ll also share some amazing projects on tap, such as the Renaissance Boat Club in Wilsonville and our work with the Homebuilders Foundation and Bridge Meadows, a multi-generation housing facility providing a safe haven for at-risk youth aging out of the foster care system. We hope this year will be educational, not only for us, but also for our clients.

Our video series highlighting every step in our green building process provides insight into our innovative practices. Our company president, Randy Sebastian, remains devoted to improving and refining the homebuilding process — his mission since 1984. His work continues to reflect enthusiasm and passion for wellbuilt homes. As the number one builder in Portland and the number one LEED-certified builder for single-family homes in Oregon, we know the importance of teamwork and positive encouragement. In fact, it could be said that all Renaissance employees are on the cheerleading squad. Whether it’s walking a home site, choosing interior selections, updating our website or hosting an open house, Renaissance employees are conscientious, encouraging, and believe that positive energy is the best energy spent. We work hard every day and enjoy doing so. Every home, right down to the last detail, is completed with sincere care. Perhaps

that’s how we’ve earned 40 Street of Dreams awards, including six Best of Show honors — more than any other builder. It takes dedication and passion to make a great homebuilder. Our team dynamically pursues excellence as we believe there is no finish line. Our creative team pushes the envelope with home design, construction techniques, amenities, style, and integrating new products. We lead, others follow. Our homebuyers fuel us; they deserve to live in the best built home in the Northwest. At Renaissance, we believe we are saving the planet one Renaissance home at a time. Cheers to another 30 years.

FREE VEGGIES FOR ALL!

Should We Follow the British Example? Have you noticed abandoned patches of land in your community suddenly springing to life? It could be the work of an underground movement called guerrilla gardening — the practice of taking unused land and planting it with flowers and shrubs, just to beautify the area a bit. Now, a group of British women are bringing the same concept to light — except their aim is not only to beautify, but to feed their neighborhood. Pam Warhurst and Mary Clear of Todmorden, West Yorkshire, believe flowers are well and good, but planting vegetables in public spaces would benefit their town much more. Incredible Edible Todmorden replaces flowers in public gardens with vegetables, then invites local residents to help themselves to ripe veggies whenever they like, free of charge. This means food has to travel much fewer miles to get to hungry mouths, reducing impact on the environment. Within 10 years, they aim to have their town producing their own fruits, vegetables, meat, and dairy products. Norah Hamill, who runs a similar project in the nearby town of Huddersfield, encourages her neighbors to plant vegetables wherever possible — back yards, public gardens, schools, even cemeteries. Shopkeepers and café owners are invited to put container gardens outside their estab-

lishments, and passersby can pick at will. Occasional acts of vandalism, or people taking more than their fair share, can be expected, but organizers still say the educational and environmental benefits outweigh this risk. Incredible Edible Todmorden and Incredible Edible Huddersfield have already been inundated with donated seeds, tools, and volunteers. Other nearby towns, such as Wilmslow and Wakefield, are following suit with their own community agriculture. houselogic.com

The CARE FEEDING of YOUR HOME: Avoid Home Improvement Fraud

Once you’re a victim of a home repair scam, you won’t ever get your money back and you’ll have to pay for the repairs and possible additional damage. Prevention is the best form of protection. Following is Handyman Bob’s Top Ten List of ways to avoid home improvement fraud: Verify the contractor’s license with CCB in Oregon and BOLI in Washington. Don’t even consider hiring someone who is not licensed, because you become the contractor, responsible for paying subcontractors, accidents on the property, and maybe even payroll taxes. No license, no work! Be Super Careful here. According to the Postal Inspector, the fastest growing areas of home repair fraud are Painting, General repairs, Re-roofing/Roof repairs, Siding Replacement, and Whole House Window Replacement. The scam artist really puts pressure on to arrange for fast payment. Legitimate businesses also want to reduce the time between making the sale and getting paid, but scammers stress this, because for them their job is not the work to be done - it’s collecting the money! Watch for these warning signs: Rebates, door-to-door sales, selling the fi-

nancing and not the work, money up front, offers of free inspections, no tools in their van, advertising that doesn’t include a license number, can’t produce license and insurance information, proposal is very vague with regard to quality of materials. Don’t close the door - slam it, if you hear: “Working in your neighborhood and have materials left over...”, “use your house to get more work”, “offer only good today”, “cash for materials up front”. Insist on a detailed contract. If remodeling the kitchen, the contractor should specify the make and model of all appliances, all fixtures, all stone and tile, the color of the paint - you get the idea. If the contract simply states, “Remodel kitchen - $32,000”, show him the door. Never, ever pay by debit card. (And avoid using checks drawn on an account with lots of $$$ in it) and never allow use of your tools in lieu of theirs (if they don’t have tools, they’re not for real). Always pay using a credit card: Or, if you choose to use checks, make sure they are not one of your primary bank accounts. Scammers don’t just stick to home improvement fraud, they love identity theft, as well. If you use a check to pay for work done by a subcontractor, make the

check payable to both parties, the contractor and his sub. Never pay the whole amount until \RXDUHFRPSOHWHO\VDWLVÀHGZLWK the work. In fact, it is a good idea to have 10% to 20% retainage specified in the contract. This is common practice in commercial work; insist on it when remodeling or repairing your home. Don’t even consider hiring someone who is not licensed! This is so important, it is not only the first item in the Top Ten List of ways to avoid home improvement fraud, it is also the last one. Remember, No License, No Work! Handyman Bob offers home improvement advice on his radio show, Around The House, every Saturday from noon to 2:00 on FM News 101 KXL. He is also a voice-over artist. Getting your business message across may be as simple as having a professional deliver it for you. Let The Strong Voice of Handyman Bob carry it to your desired audience in videos, PowerPoint presentations, radio commercials or telephone messages-on-hold – samples available at:

URBAN NEST Concert Series Kicks Off with progressive folk band “Wildish” at Urban Nest Realty Local company Urban Nest Realty will kick off a quarterly concert series beginning Friday evening, January 17th, 2014, featuring Wildish, a progressive folk band based in Portland. This will be the first of a quarterly concert series at Urban Nest Realty featuring outstanding local musicians. Concerts are free and open to the public.

Since the opening of their North Williams location in September, Urban Nest has hosted several Portland community events, including:

• A holiday food drive for the Oregon Food Bank

• Gatherings for local small business owners and women entrepreneurs

“We love being active partners in the Portland community. We started our business back in 2011 because after working as realtors for decades, we wanted to create something truly different. Now we have a company that connects people with causes that matter. It’s been great to share our new space with so many talented, compassionate Portlanders!”

• A photography exhibit to benefit a global children’s education organization (thesoldproject.org) • Coaching sessions for “Fast Pitch,” a start-up competition by Social Venture Society

SUSTAINABILITY TIP:

Take A Bite Out Of Your Taxes With Green Home Improvements Did your clients undertake remodeling projects in 2013? Or, are they planning ahead for big changes this year? Certain energy efficiency and conservation projects qualify for state and federal tax credits. Add value to your client communications by letting them know they can check out www.pmar.org/greenprojects for a comprehensive directory of home remodeling projects that qualify for state and federal tax credits, as well as cash incentives. Some incentives your clients may be unaware of include: Tree Planting Rebates: City of Portland residents can receive cash up to 50% of the purchase price of trees planted at their home. Maximum refund is $50 depending on the mature size and stormwater management potential. “Treebate” applications are accepted until April 30, 2014. Homeowners can also participate in Friends of the Trees neighborhood planting events to get a discount on street trees. Clean Energy Works: Non-profit offering instant rebates up to $2,000, free home energy assessment and financing options for energy efficient repairs. No money down, low rates.

Fridge/Freezer Recycling: PGE or Pacific Power customers with refrigerators or freezers that are between 10 and 30 cubic feet and still operating are eligible for recycling; customers can receive up to $40 cash back and free pick up. Sealing Air Leaks: You may be aware of credits and incentives for insulation, but did you know you can also take care of that drafty door or window? A cash incentive of up to $150 is available for this project. A federal tax credit expired 12/31/2013, so clients who undertook this project in 2013 should make sure to take advantage of this tax break. Numerous federal tax credits for energy efficiency and conservation projects expired on 12/31/2013. It remains to be seen whether those credits will be renewed. PMAR.org/green will be updated accordingly if the credits are extended.

Planting & Planning

WITH LET'S SHARE HOUSING I n the dead of winter, there are few things more pleasurable than pulling a garden catalog or travel brochure from the mailbox. It ignites the imagination, connecting you with the promise of a new possibility! Sharing housing can create the same feeling. There’s a good chance of cultivating new possibilities through tending and nurturing a community. As a retiree, Lucy was dreaming of change this past November.

She knew she’d relish the companionship and freedom having a housemate could bring! Lucy looked around her four-bedroom house, at her budget and at her lifestyle. The idea of sharing her space began to take seed.

Gardeners, take note. How many times have you seen a plant in a catalog that just begs to live in that little corner of your yard? You rush to order and when It arrives you bolt outside at first thaw to plant it. A few months

allthingsrealestatepdx com

later the shoots appear. Soon the new plant in the corner is bullying your precious Pachysandra. Maybe you need to transplant the new plant or move your Pachysandra somewhere else. Hmm‌ maybe your tidy yard could have benefited with more planning. Now then, back to Lucy’s story. After bringing in an organizer to help her downsize clutter, repurpose her rooms and clean out some closets, Lucy posted a notice at her local college, ad-


baby boomers vertising for a housemate. The rent was reasonable and she got lots of calls for the available room. Thinking she’d be more comfortable with a female roommate she decided on the first woman who called and moved her in. Simple. She’d gotten her place ready and filled in less than a month. That was a cinch, thought Lucy. Lucy’s bedroom was right next to her housemate’s. The first evening her housemate fell into her bed at midnight, waking Lucy from a sound sleep. Just as Lucy began to doze off again, a one-sided cell phone conversation ensued between her new housemate and ‘the boyfriend’. Lucy spent two sleepless hours waiting for the call to end. She decided to talk to her housemate about late night phone calls in the morning, before her swim class. Lucy waited patiently in the kitchen for her housemate to get up the next morning. Since her housemate was still sleeping, she left a note before running off to swim class, explaining the late night phone calls would have to be curtailed. Simple solution. That evening her renter arrived home from class and immediately went to her room. Through the door Lucy mentioned she wanted to talk about the phone calls, which caused a wail and outburst from the other side of the door. Oh, does this remind you a little of that pretty little plant that looked beautiful at first glance but then began overtaking it’s own little corner (and every crevice of the garden)? Needless to say, next time Lucy looks for a housemate she will carefully choose one

she has more in common with. Rather than the companionship Lucy was hoping for, she ended up complicating her life. Like the garden, with better planning (and better interviewing skills) Lucy could have avoided ‘replanting’ and cultivated a better outcome in the first place. It might have taken another month or two to find a successful housing match but it would have been worth it over the long run. Beyond clearing space and placing an ad, there is much more to consider when searching for a compatible housemate. Lucy could have looked at the configuration of the rooms, placing the housemate’s bed further from the shared wall. Or, with three rooms available, a shared study between the two bedrooms might have been a better solution. Finding a good household flow for all members makes for less sleepless nights and more all around compatibility. Lucy could have taken a look at her own lifestyle in the beginning too. As a retiree, finding a housemate with similar sleeping patterns (and interests) would have eliminated some of the conflict. Like-minded folks tend to get along better, having fewer issues to resolve. Attending classes at local community centers or going to MEETUPS with folks her own age and similar interests might have been a good way to launch the search. Even someone from her swim class may have been a more logical choice. Once they’d connected, taking the TIME to get to know one another, talk about sharing the home and the common spaces would be essential talking points. Making time for a lunch, dinner or long weekend to get to know one another is sensible way to get acquainted. Relationships take time to grow and evolve, just like a garden. Let's Share Housing isn’t just the garden catalog to dream over. Our service gives housemates the tools for thriving shared housing matches. We’re Cultivating community, home by home. Through our own trials and successes we’ve learned shared housing takes time, planning and using the right tools. Ready to plant a fresh idea of your own?

Tales from the

Crawlspace: CLOTHES DRYER SAFETY Clothes dryers evaporate the water from wet clothing by blowing hot air past them while they tumble inside a spinning drum. Heat is provided by an electrical heating element or gas burner. Some heavy garment loads can contain more than a gallon of water which, during the drying process, will become airborne water vapor and leave the dryer and home through an exhaust duct (more commonly known as a dryer vent). A vent that exhausts moist air to the home’s exterior has a number of requirements: It should be connected. The connection is usually behind the dryer but may be beneath it. Look carefully to make sure it’s actually connected! It should not be restricted. Dryer vents are often made from flexible plastic or metal duct, which may be easily kinked or crushed where they exit the dryer and enter the wall or floor. This is often a problem since dryers tend to be tucked away into small areas with little room to work. Vent hardware is available which is designed to turn 90° in a limited space without restricting the flow of exhaust air. One of the reasons

that restrictions are a potential fire hazard is that, along with water vapor evaporated out of wet clothes, the exhaust stream carries lint – highly flammable particles of clothing made of cotton and polyester. Lint can accumulate in an exhaust duct, reducing the dryer’s ability to expel heated water vapor, which then accumulates as heat energy within the machine. As the dryer overheats, mechanical failures can trigger sparks, which can cause lint trapped in the dryer vent to burst into flames. This condition can cause the whole house to burst into flames! Fires generally originate within the dryer but spread by escaping through the ventilation duct, incinerating trapped lint, and following its path into the building wall. Photo by Cristiano Betta

House fires caused by dryers are very common. The National Fire Protection Agency states that fires caused by dryers in 2005 were responsible for approximately 13,775 house fires, 418 injuries, 15 deaths, and $196 million in property damage. Most of these incidents occur in residences and are the result of improper lint cleanup and maintenance. Fortunately, these fires are very easy to prevent. Clean the duct, correct probems. We often see many dryer vents terminate in crawlspaces or attics where they deposit moisture, which can encourage the growth of mold, wood decay, or other material problems. Sometimes they will terminate just beneath attic ventilators. This is a defective installation. They must terminate at the exterior and away from a door or window! Also, screens may NOT be present at the duct termination; they can accumulate lint and should be removed.

PROPERTY TALK: INSPECTION? Should sellers be proactive and complete a professional home inspection before listing their home for sale? Some will argue yes, and others will argue no. I generally argue against pre-listing inspections by the seller for a number of reasons. First, is the expanded duty by the sellers to disclose any known or apparent defects. Upon listing the home for sale, sellers must complete the statutory required “Property Disclosure Statement” which states that sellers must disclose any known defects (to the sellers’ knowledge) and the existence of any professional inspection that has been completed in the past 3 years. By having a home inspection, sellers are required to share the professional report with all potential purchasers and disclose the deficiencies uncovered during the inspection. This list of defects is likely to be much longer and more extensive than the list of defects known personally by sellers who are not licensed

“The entry door is the beginning of your journey through a house, ” says Southern California architect Craig Stoddard. “It’s the first part of the house that anyone going through the house looks at closely. Ideally it should emphasize the character of the house,” he adds. For new and old homes alike, the front door is a key focal point.

ed with wood doors to minimize cracking and warping by giving the panels enough room to shift as they expand and contract with changes in humidity. Doors with door lites have panel construction with one or more lites substituting for a panel or panels. For more about this, see Front Door Construction.

Unfortunately, because they are exposed to weather and heavy wear, entry doors often show their age prematurely. Most older doors are made from wood, a material that has the warm, natural look and feel that most people prefer but is vulnerable to the elements. Season after season of sun and rain eventually warp, crack and bow wood, as the sun’s ultraviolet rays break down wood’s natural lignin, and moisture repeatedly shrinks and swells wood fibers. As a result, when given enough time, wood doors give up the ghost.

Smart Front Door Shopping Doors are available through millwork shops, door manufacturers, lumberyards, and home improvement centers. Most manufactured doors are made by a handful of large companies; Premdor and JeldWen, for example, own several smaller or regional door makers that each construct a particular type of door. These companies, in turn, ship to local distributors and dealers.

Luckily, entry and exterior doors have changed significantly over the past few years. Homeowners may now select from a vast smorgasbord of options. Hundreds of types and sizes are available, from conventional wood models to high-tech alternatives made of fiberglass composites or steel to doors that incorporate a combination of these materials.

contractors. While some buyers may find this helpful, a lengthy report could scare off other buyers, particularly first-time homebuyers, regardless of whether repairs have been completed and the noted issues have been addressed. Secondly, the property type or the age of the home may not warrant the expense by the sellers. If the property is a condominium or townhouse where the homeowners association, and not the property owners, is financially responsible for the major components of the home, it would be a waste of money for the sellers to pay for a professional home inspection. Likewise, if the home is newer and the sellers had a home inspection at the time of purchase, there may be nothing significantly wrong with the property to warrant the expense of a home inspection. Thirdly, in competitive markets with low inventory and bidding wars by buyers, it is not uncommon for buyers to waive the home inspection contingency as a way to get their offer accepted. So why should a seller run the risk of pointing out property

One significant change with entry doors is that, unless you’re looking for a bare-bones door replacement, you can now buy an entire “entry system.” With an entry system, a door is pre-hung in its frame, the door’s bottom edge interlocks with the threshold, and weather stripping encircles the door’s perimeter. The hinges and lockset are designed as part of the system, and sidelites often flank the door. With a system, all components are designed and machined to work together reliably and energy efficiently. Another change in the door industry is that the lines that once distinguished one door-building material from another have blurred. A wood door isn’t necessarily entirely wood anymore. In fact, some wood doors have steel interiors, and steel doors have wood exteriors. A fiberglass or steel door may have a wood frame. And nearly any door may have a core of foam insulation. Even so, for the sake of discussion, it helps to consider doors according to their primary face material. The choice of wood, fiberglass, or steel as a surface material has the greatest impact on a door’s appearance, cost, durability, and security. Nearly all doors, wood and non-wood alike, are termed either “flush” or “paneled.” Flush doors are flat and smooth on both faces. Paneled doors have rectangular recesses framed by horizontal rails and vertical stiles. Panel construction originat-

When replacing an existing door, measure the door’s actual width, thickness (normally 1 3/4 inches) and height (normally 6 feet, 8 inches). If you’re buying a complete entry system and intend to replace the jamb as well as the door, measure the thickness of the existing jamb, from the inside of the exterior molding to the inside of the interior molding (this equals the wall’s thickness). Stand inside, and note which side the knob is on. If the knob is on the right, you have a “right- hand” door; if it’s on the left, you have a “left-hand” door. When buying a wood door, look for highquality woods, durable finishes, and careful detailing. As a rule, the more intricate the carvings and moldings, and the thicker and wider the stiles and rails, the better the door. Nord’s high-end models have 1 3/8inch panels; lesser priced doors have 9/16inch and 3/4-inch panels. If you’re considering an entry system, be sure all the components are from the same manufacturer; many systems are assembled by distributors, and their parts may not be designed to go together. Be sure all weatherstripping seals tightly and the threshold interlocks with the door’s bottom edge. High-quality steel and fiberglass doors have a thermal break—an insulated separation—that prevents outside cold and heat from being conducted through the door’s skin and frame (with a fiberglass door, this break may simply be the wood frame). This is a must for cold climates; otherwise, frost may form on the door’s inside surface. Even if it costs you a little more, a highquality door is sure to pay you back with smooth operation, energy efficiency, low maintenance requirements, and a great look for years to come.

flaws, when in the buyer’s mind, the home is perfect? And finally, assuming the inspection contingency has not been waived, the buyer will hire their own home inspector to evaluate the property. Since the buyer will have no privity of contract with the sellers’ home inspector and cannot legally rely on the former report, the buyer will want to safeguard their purchase by hiring their own professional to examine the property for defects. While there may be some overlap in the two reports, two different home inspectors is likely to produce two different lists of needed repairs. And just when the sellers believe that there are no additional repairs to complete, the buyer may then come back with more repair demands as a condition of closing.

ers always want to present their homes in the best possible light, so sellers should examine their own properties and make sure the roofs and gutters are clean, the deck, siding and eaves are free of dry rot, that there is not a pool of water in the crawlspace and the smoke detectors are up to date with fresh batteries. The sellers’ RealtorŽ should provide the sellers with an exhaustive list of items to check on the exterior as well as the interior of the home to make sure the property is in excellent condition for its listing debut. If there is a doubt about a major component such as the furnace or the roof, which could affect a buyer’s ability to obtain financing, it would be wise for the sellers to consult a professional. For instance, if the sellers have a concern about the life left on the roof, it would certainly be prudent to obtain a roof certification from a licensed roofer. Repairing or addressing those issues of which sellers are already aware is far different than addressing every minor repair listed in a home inspection report. What may be considered relevant and important to one buyer, may not to another, so tackle the repairs which you personally know to be needed and follow your Realtor’s Ž advice on preparing your home for sale.

This is not to say that sellers should not explore their own home for apparent defects prior to listing the property for sale and repair what needs to be fixed. When reviewing the “Property Disclosure Statement�, sellers should make a note of and complete those repairs that are necessary to making the home qualif y for financing.
