Meant to catch the eye Jewelry designer’s home a sparkling vision


As a designer of custom jewelry, Amanda Keidan sometimes takes delicate vintage pieces and reworks them into intricately sculptured, modern collections. The same could be said of her sunny, art-filled Venice, Calif., home, the subject of a recent makeover. See the story, Page 4.

Don’t leave your tomatoes on a marble windowsill and mushy, and the acid from them etched marks in the marble. She requested a reasonably priced fix.

Tomatoes on windowsills and radiator covers dominate this week’s discussion. A reader put tomatoes on the marble windowsill in her kitchen, and went away for a few days. When she returned, the tomatoes were overripe

garden in January. Our food editor came to the rescue with Bar Keepers Friend, which you can buy just about anywhere in liquid or powder form for under $3. Reader Helene Jawer suggested Gel-Gloss, which she purchased at Home Depot. It comes in a 16-ounce can for less than $10. The label states

Vote “Yes” on Amendment 4 Rae Roeder, CRS, e-PRO, GRI, SFR, SRES Rae Roeder Realty

TRIM notices recently came out, and if your home has been homesteaded for a number of years you may have noticed that your market value has gone down, but your assessed value has gone up as well on your tax bill. That is due to something called “recapture.” Your assessed value goes up 3% even in a down market. Amendment 4 will give the legislature the authority to correct this problem. Are you considering buying a new home? If you have no portable exemption, or are a first time buyer, your property will be taxed at full value while your neighbor next door will pay far less in taxes due to his homestead exemption. Amendment 4 provides an additional exemption for the first five years to address this inequity. Do you own a small business? Non-homestead property will have tax increases of 10% per year. Amendment 4 will reduce that increase to 5% and remove the “recapture” feature. The same scenario is in place if you own rental property. Ask yourself if you think you can raise the rent by 10% per year while being taxed at a higher rate due to “recapture”? Florida needs growth in jobs which means attracting more people and industry to our state. If rental rates are forced to increase, if home sales are hobbled because taxes make the monthly payments too high, if that clean industry company sees property taxes as a limiting factor, we all lose. The good news: you can change your world by being an active voter! Never think “my one vote” doesn’t count. Don’t let an amendment fail because you thought it was a great idea and everyone would vote yes. We will need 60% approval to pass an amendment and every vote counts. The housing market appears to be taking an upward swing. We can give it a much needed boost by passing this amendment. Vote “Yes” on Amendment 4: every vote counts!

These products might help reader Rhonda deGategno in West Chester, who doesn’t want to replace her cultured marble bathroom countertop on which a plug-in air freshener had dripped and stained while the family was on vacation. On to radiators. Joe Ponessa advised me regarding my suggestions to a homeowner who was trying to get some answers about radiator covers. I suggested replacing the old cast-iron clunkers with something more modern and efficient rather than wasting money covering or painting them. Don’t mix apples and oranges, warns Ponessa, professor emeritus of housing, indoor environment and health at Rutgers Cooperative Extension. Radiators send heat into the room mainly as radiant energy, heating objects — including people — more than air, he said. Modern baseboard fin-and-tube devices convey heat mainly by warming the air — convective heating — and are called convectors. “The functional significance is that once heated, the hundred pounds or so of iron and the several gallons of water continue to emit heat for a long while; convection units cool off quickly,” he said. “The two systems do not mix well,” Ponessa said. “If considering replacement of old radiators with the modern European sheet-metal units, I would quiz the plumber very carefully about radiator sizing and performance.” The lightweight radiators may not work very well if mixed with the old cast-iron units, he said. Modern, low-profile cast-

iron baseboard units are another alternative to the old units. Ponessa also has had firsthand experience painting radiators and building covers. Whether made of aluminum or wood, all have held up well, with no splitting or warping. If you screw a wooden crosspiece on the top of the cover, there may be splitting unless the crosspiece is slotted for the screws to allow the top to expand and contract. “Whatever the difference in performance, if appearance counts, my personal preference would be a wood cover,” he said. Unlike me, Ponessa said he has good success painting a radiator. “It has been in service for about 10 years in the main bathroom and still looks great,” Ponessa said. “I used the same paint as I did on the trim.” Finally, a reader is replacing his roof this fall and wonders if he should have the 20-year-old one removed before the new one is added. My answer: Yes.

A shed is a must for any gardener. It’s where you plot your plans for your next butterfly garden, or where you sort your seeds for next year’s vegetable garden. And, sometimes, a backyard shed becomes more than just a garden building — it becomes a respite from anything and for everything. That’s what Studio Shed LLC is counting on. The manufacturer, in Boulder, Colo., produces prefabricated structures that you can use for garden supplies, home office needs or studio space. Some families use them as detached getaways from the main house, according to a company spokeswoman. Others use them as exercise spaces, yoga or pottery studios . Men can think man-cave styles, too. Studio Shed’s customizable models come pre-packed with in-wall wiring and such options as finished interior, Cloudlight windows and roof, glass fronts and French doors. Roofing is 24gauge corrugated metal on top of weather paper. The company features a “shed configurator” that allows you to configure and cost out almost any design you want. Just select the size, style, elements and materials you want and a price will be tallied. “People come to us looking for extra space without having to move or undertake major home renovations,” says co-owner Mike Koenig. “They want style and efficiency with customizable options at a reasonable price. Some customize a little, some a lot. One client set his shed up to teach banjo



Jewelry designer’s home sparkles By Lisa Boone Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES – As a designer of custom jewelry, Amanda Keidan sometimes takes delicate vintage pieces and reworks them into intricately sculptured, modern collections. The same could be said of her sunny, artfilled Venice, Calif., home, where gold accents blend with sparkling glass and vintage barrel chairs share the living room with new Ikea ottomans and a cool lamp bought off the flash sales site Gilt. “Everything is very specific,” Keidan said of her decorating style. “I want your eye to look at something. I like having things to look at — things that are pretty.” In the otherwise allwhite cottage kitchen, a startling blue contemporary triptych by Venice artist Melissa Harrington catches your eye. In an otherwise staid, traditional guest room? A red abstract painting. “I enjoy those pieces every day,” she said, noting that the red painting was by her grandmother. Keidan’s passion for art is not surprising given her background: Her great-grandfather was pianist Leopold Godowsky. Her grandparents were Leopold Godowsky Jr., a violinist and co-inventor of Kodachrome film, and Frances Gershwin Godowsky, sister to composers George and Ira. The multitude of artworks throughout Keidan’s house creates an ambience that is elegant yet whimsical — and deeply personal. “I love that there is a story behind each artwork,” she said. “It’s as though my friends and family have left thumb-

prints on my home.” She purchased the three-bedroom, two-bath house last year after looking at more than 100 properties in the last four years. She had, she said, given up when she visited the Venice house, where friends from London had been staying. “It was a little like the cliche you often hear about falling in love,” she said, laughing. “Stop looking and you will find it.” After convincing the owner to sell, Keidan embarked on a fourmonth renovation to give the 1947 home a cleaner look. “I wanted it to be light and airy and cheerful,” she said. Mustard and red accent walls were painted museum white and soothing neutral tones. The exterior went from dark blue to more white.

A period gas range is a highlight in the kitchen at Amanda Keidan’s 1947 bungalow in Venice Beach, Calif. The home was the subject of an extensive makeover that reflects Keidan’s unique tastes. DON BARTLETTI/LOS ANGELES TIMES/MCT

New windows were installed to bring in natural light, and new land-

scaping made the most of outdoor spaces. Small fixes, such as

smoothing the home's warped walls, helped to achieve the clean-lined

look Keidan wanted. And though much changed, Keidan was careful to keep what worked: the original floor plan and striking leaded glass windows that Keidan said were from the old Helms Bakery on the L.A.-Culver City border. For Keidan, who grew up in New York, the result is much like the Venice community she has grown to love: an eclectic space that doesn’t conform to one particular style — just like her jewelry.

Don’t ignore a late relative’s foreclosure By Gary M. Singer

Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel

QUESTION: My mother passed away, and her home is going into foreclosure with the condo association for nonpayment of assessments. The condo has listed me as a “possible beneficiary” of her revocable trust

and has served foreclosure papers on me. There is no money in the house or in her estate. Can I ignore this? — Gloria ANSWER: It’s never a good idea to ignore a lawsuit, even if you think you have nothing to lose — because you may be wrong and actually have

something to lose. Meet with a lawyer to see whether you have any liability. In these situations, there are simple steps that you can take to disclaim any interest in your late mother’s property, such as filing a certain form in the public records or deeding your potential interest to the

condo association. Q: I live in a condo, and the unit above me is rented to a family that’s loud. We had a meeting with the owner, but the tenants are back to their old tricks. How can we fix this? — Leslie A: Speak with the landlord again. Also, read the condo rules and see

whether your neighbor is breaking any of them. If so, the landlord may be fined, and that may be what it takes to get the problem resolved. Also, some condos have rules about types of flooring and padding that can be installed. In that case, the association can make the unit owner fix

the flooring.

30-year mortgage rate rises Marcy Gordan Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Average U.S. mortgage rates rose only slightly this week and continued to hover near record lows, a trend that has helped boost home sales and refinancing. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the rate on the 30-

year fixed mortgage edged up to 3.41 percent, from 3.37 last week. Three weeks ago, the rate touched 3.36 percent. That’s the lowest level on records dating to 1971. The average rate on the 15-year fixed mortgage, often used for refinancing, rose to 2.72 percent. That’s up from last week’s record low of 2.66 percent.

Hidden Costs of Foreclosures Pose Risks Not Found in New Homes

The economic downturn has hurt many Tallahassee-area families during the past few years, and sadly that means there are a larger number of foreclosed homes on the market than during a healthy economy.

Outdoor Living At Its Best!

The lower price of these homes can make them look like a bargain, but home buyers need to carefully compare the actual cost— and advantages—of a newly-constructed home versus a foreclosed one before they make their final decision. At the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) 2012 International Builders Show in Orlando, Jay McKenzie, vice president of Builder Digital Experience, LLC, offered a number of advantages of purchasing a

depending on their age, they may not be for long. And they certainly aren’t as energy-efficient as new ones.

• Many foreclosures are sold “as is” with no disclosure requirements. Buyers could be surprised with major repair bills for issues such as foundation faults or other structural defects, mold, hidden water damage, unsafe wiring, rodent infestations and more.

• New homes come outfitted with the latest home automation and wiring components that provide state-of-the-art technology capabilities to accommodate modern home appliances and entertainment resources such as high-definition televisions, fullhouse sound systems, hard-wired fire and security alarms and more. Foreclosures probably don’t have updated wiring, and old wiring not only may not be able to

A foreclosed home that appears to have been renovated may not have been done so with the proper permits and inspections. A brand new home provides peace of mind for your family’s safety because it has passed inspections and conforms to current building codes. A new home is also under warranty and any issues that arise during the warranty term will be fixed at no cost to the home owner. • New homes can be personalized with appliances, cabinets, counter tops, carpets, floor coverings, paint color and other design elements to meet your family’s needs and tastes. They also come designed for modern lifestyles, with open space floor plans, walk-in closets, creative storage solutions and conveniently-located laundry facilities. With a foreclosure, you’ll have to spend time and money to knock out walls, re-paint, and make other renovations to change the previous owner’s tastes to your own.

• Newly built homes are highly energyefficient, saving the buyer money and helping the environment. New windows, doors and insulation better control the home’s interior climate, and Energy Star-rated appliances and other modern components will help save costs on utility bills. With a foreclosure, if the appliances, water heater or HVAC are in working order,

Many builders offer incentives to reduce closing costs and can complete the closing quickly, unlike banks that just want to get foreclosed homes off their books and may have a backlog of homes to process, which can take months or years. It is important to note that some home builders have expanded their businesses to include buying foreclosures, then renovating and re-selling them. In these cases, the builder normally has inspected the home for hidden damage or dangerous conditions, gotten the required permits, and completed the necessary repairs. They also often renovate, replace appliances and components, and perform many cosmetic upgrades to make the home an attractive and safe place for the home buyer.

Most landlords would agree -- They would rather have tenants who are not familiar with the inside of a jail cell. To screen out those with criminal records, the landlord asks whether the tenant has been convicted of a felony, or had adjudication withheld on a felony charge, or was ever convicted of a sexual crime. The landlord often runs a background check of all the adults in the household just to make sure. If the landlord learns the applicant does indeed have a criminal record, the landlord can legitimately turn down the applicant. It won’t be a violation of fair housing laws. Fair Housing laws do not protect criminal activity. Having a criminal record is not a protected class under the fair housing laws. Thus, landlords can establish screening criteria that reject an applicant who has a criminal record. Conviction vs. Arrest vs. Adjudication Withheld TD-0000215361

This 2,256-square-foot family home, Plan HMAFAPW1714 from, offers a great blend of modern amenities and classic curb appeal. The two-story great room opens directly to the island kitchen, where snack-bar seating encourages friendly lingering. The kitchen's central location also makes it easy to serve up meals to the breakfast nook on one side and dining room on the other. The master suite on the first level is a nohassle choice (especially with the laundry room just steps away) that also helps with aging in place. In this homeowner's haven, relax in the window-side tub or in the shower. Dual sinks and a walk-in closet are welcome details. Two bedrooms upstairs use a full hall bath and have access to the large bonus room, which can become a playroom, exercise studio or home theater — or all of the above at different times . Don't miss the handy bench and storage area that greet you coming in from the garage. An unfinished basement features an additional 1,693 sq. ft. of space to finish now or use as storage.

Convictions should not be confused with arrests. A conviction means that a judge and jury have determined that the individual is guilty of the particular crime. An arrest occurs if law enforcement suspects the individual committed a crime. There is a world of difference between

suspicion and conviction, as any Perry Mason fan can tell you. “Adjudication withheld” means the court determined the individual did the crime but the court is not entering a conviction at the moment. Instead, the court places certain conditions on the defendant. Examples are to not use drugs, do community service, stay in school, etc. If the defendant satisfies all of the conditions set by the judge, then the conviction is never entered against him. Even though the conviction is not entered, you can reasonably believe that the individual did the criminal activity. A landlord should not reject applicants on the basis of arrest records. Doing so would be considered unlawful discrimination. That is because arrest statistics show that arrest patterns have sometimes been discriminatory against protected classes in some contexts. That makes arrests a bad screening criterion. Uniformity and Consistency. If the landlord conducts criminal background checks, it should be done on every adult applicant. Doing anything less would be considered discriminatory. The landlord should not accept some applicants with criminal records and reject others. For example, a landlord should not accept a female applicant with a record of assault but not a male applicant with a similar conviction. Once exceptions are made, the criteria cease to be fair.

The National Association of Realtors says its index of sales agreements dropped 2.6 percent last month to 99.2. In July, the index rose to 101.9. That was the highest level since April 2010, when the market benefited from a federal home-buying tax credit. AP

Sales contracts to buy US homes up slightly By Christopher S. Rugaber Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The number of Americans who signed contracts to buy homes rose only slightly, suggesting sales may level off in the coming months after solid gains in the past year. The National Association of Realtors said Thursday that its seasonally adjusted index of sales agreements rose in September to a reading of 99.5. That’s up from August’s reading of 99.2 but below a two-year high of 101.9 reached in July. Contracts are up 14.5 percent from a year ago. An index reading above 100 is considered healthy. The index bottomed at 75.88 in June 2010 after a homebuyer’s tax credit expired. The pending home sales index is a measure of the number of signed contracts to purchase


homes. The index can signal where the housing market is headed because a signed contract usually results in a final sale one or two months later. The housing market has been recovering this year, helped by the lowest mortgage rates in decades, a limited supply of homes for sale and steady price increases. Some economists said the rising trend in home sales will likely continue, despite a few weaker months this fall. The figures “suggest that existing home sales are likely to flatten over the next month or two,” Joseph LaVorgna, an economist at Deusche Bank, said in an email. “Looking beyond then, we expect sales to resume their uptrend as the underlying housing fundamentals continue to improve.” New home sales jumped last month to the highest annual pace in

the past two and a half years. And builders broke ground on new homes and apartments at the fastest pace in more than four years in September. They also requested the most building permits in four years, a sign that many are confident that home sales gains will continue. The housing recovery could help boost economic growth and hiring at time when manufacturing has weakened sharply. Still, housing makes up a much smaller part of the economy than it did before the bubble. So rising construction and sales may have less of an impact. And many first-time homebuyers are struggling to qualify for mortgages, since banks have raised credit standards. Many also demand high down payments that many would-be homebuyers can’t afford.
