So youve bought your home lot and youre ready to by the perfect house plan, but you dont know where to start. There are important questions that you should ask your designer before buying that house plan, and I can help. I have been designing custom home plans and stock house plans for 20 years, and I have compiled a list of questions you should ask your home designer before buying.
1.How long have you been designing house plans? The more experience your home plan designer has, the more detailed his or her plans are likely to be. Stock house plans experience is also important because with all of the competition for online house plan exposure, there are plenty of home designers out there with little or no experience.
2.Do you design custom house plans? You think youve found the perfect house plan, but you want to make a few tweaks, and before you know it, your revision bill is 2-3 times the cost of the original home plan. A good designer will recognize the fine line between designing a custom home plan for you and spending too much time on revising a stock house plan.
3.Can I return my house plan if I decide not to build it? Most stock plan brokers online have an all sales are final policy, so make sure you check it out BEFORE you click the buy button. But there are some house plan companies and home plan designers WILL allow you to return your house plan with a minimal restocking fee, so be sure to ask.
4.Why cant I return my house plan? Because there are so many house plans sold online to different parts of the world, it is hard to police theft. Bottom line is that there are many people out there buying a house plan and building it more than one time, which is a copyright infringement unless agreed to by the house plan owner. Home designers have limited resources to check to see if you are telling the truth or not, so most have adopted the no returns policy.
5.Will I need to have my house plan reviewed by a local architect? House plans sold through the large brokers online are required to be 2006 IRC compliant at a minimum, but some areas of the country require special additions to the plan that are specific to that area. Its best to check with your local building official before buying a house plan.
6.Do you have references I can talk with? Most home plan designers will not have a problem giving you names of past clients, and if they do, reconsider using them!
7.What is your timeframe for completing my house plan? If you are hiring a home plan designer to draw a custom home, or modify an existing stock house plan, ask up front how long it will take so there are no surprises later. Many home designers who sell their house plans online are a one man shop and may require more time to complete the work.
8.Do you have photos of the house plan I like? Many times the house plan designer will have photos of a stock plan thats already been built, so it always good to ask.
9.Who owns my house plan when its finished and paid for? The original designer is the owner of the copyright of your house plan, even if youve made changes to a stock plan.
10.What are your payment terms? Some home plan designers will require an up-front deposit to begin the project, and its always a good idea to find out ahead of time how payment will be handled.
Contingent on who you question, you will find varying viewpoints on when and how the Canadian housing market will cool down from its recent meteoric climb. For instance, TD Bank economist Pascal Gauthier bluntly stated in an interview with “Globe and Mail” this month that even though housing prices will carry on increasing by 9% over the 2009 figures until the middle of 2011, they will then sharply fall — possibly as low as 2.7 percent. But economist Sal Guatieri of BMO Capital Markets is somewhat hopeful, telling “The Montreal Gazette” that the overvaluation that resulted in the real estate bubble will just affect large cities, and should not bring about the kind of nationwide collapse anticipated in the US market. However they both agree that the Canadian housing sector will need to cool down, but just how soon it will take place and how quickly it will fall is the question still up for debate.
Guatieri indicated that the price for a family residence should be “about four or five times income,” however the current market in Toronto and Vancouver is closing in around $700,000, which averages 10 times the earnings of the home owner. Even though TD Bank had at first forecast 1.6% gains in 2011, this kind of real estate hyper inflation in the middle of economic recovery has in fact compromised the market, and they are already seeing the signs of cooling this year derived from the surge of new housing starts and new listings. places like Mississauga are still seeing an escalation in new Mississauga condominiums but sales could start to cool.
In their discussion with “The Vancouver Sun,” TD admitted that their forecasts have been off in the past, because their late 2009 forecast did not anticipate the rise in first quarter sales for that year that was an unpredicted “move by buyers and sellers to pre-empt regulatory and interest-rate changes”. The looming harmonized sales tax due to take effect in July in Ontario and British Columbia definitely impacted markets in those provinces. In expectation of this July time limit, the Bank of Canada has now declared its intention to lift their overnight target rate by July to counterbalance the recent record breaking low rate of 0.25 percent. Higher borrowing costs should act on cottage country with deduced values for places such as Wasaga Beach real estate and this could constitute an opportunity for buyers.
As family incomes catch up with the level of inflation — a whopping 8 percent over the past 8 years — TD predicts that overvalued housing prices will continue to fall from 15 to 10 percent by the end of next year. This is bolstered by a decline in MLS sales, that as well includes Toronto MLS listings, over the last 6 months that the Canadian Real Estate Association has observed. But everyone can spot signs that the whole housing market has been affected by the high percentage of boosted values in the cities — how far this influence will spread is the primary question.
Gauthier describes his forecasts are a consequence of the “stronger supply response,” and that the “market balance is now expected to be somewhat softer next year, consistent with market conditions more favourable to potential buyers and a mild depreciation in home values”. But Guatieri thinks the approaching slow down period does not automatically mean that housing prices will indeed fall, however predicts it as a gentle adjustment after the recent surge. One fact both Guatieri and Gauthier do foresee on the horizon, though, is that regardless of when it strikes, the calming trend will not last forever, and inside of 3 years the average real estate price in the country should find a equilibrium and return to its fair market value.
If you are thinking of buying or building a brand spanking new home, you’re in luck because this article was created for you! In fact, many of my clients have determined the market has become pretty well picked over and the majority of what’s left is either over-priced or junk. Recently I’ve been fielding a lot of questions about buying brand new construction or building a new home, so I’ve decided to help you by outlining the process.
STEP 1: Get pre-approved for your construction loan or to purchase the newly built home once it’s constructed by the builder. This is especially important for new construction! If you are buying a lot and building a home, the construction loan underwriting process is much tougher than if you are buying an already built new home. This often requires more down payment, better credit and lower debt to income ratios. I’ve had many clients qualify to buy an existing home but do not qualify for a construction loan.
If you are using a builder like Gough or Wright Homes to build your home for you (both do great custom construction in Salt Lake and Utah County) then you just need what’s called take out financing to buy the property from the builder when construction is complete. You really have to be carefully pre-approved with this approach because you will be giving the builder non-refundable construction deposits and if you can’t close on the take out financing then you will lose that money (insert swear word here). It’s important that your mortgage team not only look at the last two years of your credit and income but we also try to account for any changes in interest rate, etc. over the next 90 to 180 days as your home is being constructed. We will make sure your loan is fully underwritten and approved prior to giving any non-refundable funds to the builder.
STEP 2: Locate a community and lot to build your dream home on. Once your mortgage (construction or take out financing) is approved then you know how much you’re comfortable and capable borrowing and can choose a lot.
Tip: You really want an expert REALTOR that specializes in land and new construction to help you with this. If you’ve not built multiple homes before there is a TON that you do not know. Simply put, hire a land expert and allow them to explain all the mistakes they’ve seen past clients make. You can’t un-build it after it’s built…
STEP 3: Build your home! This is a general timeline and guide to the key steps that occur during the course of construction.
1. Customize house plan with builder
2. Color Orientation- Coordinator & suppliers with options pricing (1-2 weeks)
3. Pre Construction Meeting (3-4 weeks)
4. Color Selection Meeting- Finalize decisions (6-7 Weeks)
5. Start Dig (7-8 weeks)
6. Electrical/Flat-work Meeting- Discuss location of lights, plugs, options & concrete (11-12 weeks)
7. Walk through Meeting- Confirm upgrades are in place, create punch list of missing items (18-20 weeks)
8. Closing & Completion of Home- Time will depend on size & scope of home (19-21 weeks)
STEP 4: Close on your home and move in (picture yourself in home nirvana here!) If you’ve done a construction loan in your name then you already own the home and you just move in. If you’ve chosen to have the builder construct the home for you, then this is when you get your take out loan and actually purchase the home. Our goal is to have your loan closed the same day the city issues the Certificate of Occupancy so you can move in immediately.
So that’s it, you are now more educated than most people who have done this process several times over. Congratulations!
We have vacationed in Northwest Florida, Walton County in particular, for twenty years – and love it! The best, uncrowded beaches in the country – reasonable cost – great restaurants – terrific beach properties to lease! So we are very enthusiastic about the area – but what about the economic realities of investing in Florida — at this time?
Northwest Florida has a vibrant and steady tourist business, with low unemployment. The brand new Panama City International Airport, projected to open in January 2010, will make the area quickly accessible from virtually anywhere in the United States and Europe. It is expected to provide a major boost to the areas economy, and should increase demand for real estate.
We believe the Florida panhandle is a solid place to buy real estate, and that real estate values, though flat right now (January 2008) are likely to move sharply upward, especially for oceanfront and Gulf view properties. But thats our view! Here are some other folks opinions on the area.
CNN Money.com (Feb. 12, 2007) highlighted Panama City, Florida as the #1 place to buy real estate in the United States.
American Express says that the Florida panhandle is one of its Top Ten tourist destinations in the United States. The Florida panhandle is second only to the Orlando area in Florida tourism. Northwest Florida beaches are among the best in the world, attracting over seven million visitors annually – more than any other East Coast beach area.
Real estate professionals in Walton County say that prices are less than during the peak year of 2005. But they are expecting closings to increase, as more deals become available. Many residences are priced below the cost to build. “If you are looking for a property to hold on to for the next five years, the time to purchase is now. We are still very undervalued compared to other regions of Florida.”
The St. Joe Company (NYSE:JOE), whose corporate headquarters are in Jacksonville, FL, is the largest landowner in the Florida panhandle, owning some 718,000 acres of development land – half of it less than ten miles of the coast. St. Joe has been a big player in the area for a long time, beginning as a timber company but realizing in recent decades that the value of its holdings was far greater as investment property. So now theyre in the vacation home development business, with a great deal of activity centered on Walton County.
According to St. Joe’s Investor Relations Department the long term outlook for Florida panhandle real estate is particularly upbeat.
Long-term economic and population trends continue to favor Florida, whose economy is fundamentally solid and diversified. The state’s population is forecasted to increase by three-fourths (to 28.6 million) by 2030. Its demographic growth rate regularly outperforms that of the rest of the United States: since 1970, the State’s yearly rate of growth has outpaced the national average by 100%. By 2010 Florida will pass New York to take its place as the nation’s third most populous state.
Florida’s solid, diversified economy regularly outperforms the U.S. mean, with a burgeoning tourism industry, plenty of high-tech jobs and a strong high-tech manufacturing sector. A large military presence with a number of active and expanding bases provides stability to the region’s economy. Within the Florida panhandle, Walton County has one of the lowest unemployment rates in Florida and the U.S.
Florida is the commercial center of the Americas. Geographic location, as well as economic and political stability, places Florida at the heart of trade and business throughout the region. Vacation property sales to retirees remain robust, and Florida is a favorite spot for retirement relocation.
Northwest Floridas beaches are the states second favorite tourist destination, behind only Orlando. They draw over seven million visitors each year, more than any other stretch of beach in the eastern United States.
Beaches in the Florida panhandle rate as some of the most beautiful in the country and the world. Beaches in Walton, Bay and Gulf Counties have been selected for the number one ranking by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, an authority on beach quality and author of America’s Best Beaches.
Northwest Florida enjoys a very favorable climate, with mild winters, lots of sunshine and clear days. Northwest Florida is located in U.S. Climate Zone 8, the same climate zone as renowned vacation areas such as Hilton Head (SC), Amelia Island (FL), Kiawah Island (SC) and St. Simons and Sea Island (GA). Floridas beauty and variety of landscape is well-known. The Emerald Coast has a distinct geography, culture and cuisine that is very different from Miami or Orlando.
Northwest Florida entertains approximately seven million visitors annually. According to Visit Florida, the states tourism and visitor agency, 33 percent of these visitors are from households with incomes over $75,000 and 16 percent are from households with incomes over $100,000.
The number of private resort developments in the Florida panhandle is increasing. At communities like Seaside, Rosemary Beach, WaterColor and WaterSound Beach, oceanfront lots have sold for $40,000 per linear beachfront foot to prosperous families who have chosen Northwest Florida.
The new Panama City airport now under construction is expected to be in operation by February 2010. It will be a major international airport, thus opening the Emerald Coast to easy access from both coasts, the Midwest, Canada and Europe. Previously, access to the area by air was limited to regional airports.
Economists expect that the new airport will become a strong economic development engine for the area. Throughout history airports have a powerful track record for increasing economic development activity.
The new Panama City airport will be the first major airport built in the United States in almost fifteen years. As a large-scale greenfield airport location, it offers unique opportunities and unmatched flexibility for companies dependent on air transport and logistics infrastructure.
Examples of how airport construction stimulates local economies may be seen in Huntsville, AL, Savannah, GA, Jacksonville, FL, Fort Myers, FL and Northwest Arkansas. All of these airports have stimulated significant adjacent development.
The State of Florida projects that over its first decade, the new airport is likely to create 8,000 new jobs and at completion a total of 13,000 jobs. An important comparison is the construction of the new Southwest Regional Airport in the Ft. Myers/Naples area in 1983, which had a tremendous impact on real estate values. Since the airport opened in 1983, total residential real estate values in the region have increased an average of 11 percent annually.
Fortune Magazine (October 14, 2007) highlighted the St. Joe Company as one of the Ten Best stocks for 2008, citing the long-term potential of the company and its development business situated in the Florida panhandle. The article says: “When Florida real estate does rebound, investors will be kicking themselves for not recognizing today’s $28 stock price for St. Joe Co (JOE) — Florida’s largest private landowner — as a rare opportunity.”
In the quickly shifting economic climate, it is important to research and ask questions before making any investment choice. Yet the truth is that the Florida panhandle is a rarity, with a delightful climate and stunningly beautiful, mostly empty beaches. As you sit on the pristine, white sand with your feet in the emerald clear Gulf water, with pelicans and gulls flying overhead and dolphins cruising by you can see that there are some very important intangibles here. Northwest Florida is a very special place – and they’re not creating any more beach property!

Condominium insurance covers most water damage similar to home insurance. It covers water damage restoration for the damage caused by internal sources such as burst pipes, water leaks, and the like. For external sources such as floods you might get another type of insurance. However, you might be wondering if that would be covered under your strata insurance. In order to enlighten us, we will discuss the differences between condominium insurance and strata insurance. Afterwards, we will discuss how water damage can be covered by these two types of policies.
Strata insurance covers the building exterior and common property. Common property refers to the areas for the use of all the lot owners in the condominium, such as the stairwells, pathways, recreational facilities, and the like. Condominium insurance on the other hand, will cover your furniture and the upgrades that have been made on your condo since it was originally built. So what if water damages your walls, your carpets, and your floor? Which insurance covers what?
Water damage insurance coverage for this type of situation will depend on a number of factors. The first question you have to ask is: what was damaged? The second question is: is it your fault or not? The reason for you to ask these questions is because if it was your fault, then the water damage restoration will be charged to your condominium insurance if you have any. If not, then strata will charge costs to you personally. If it is not your fault, then water damage restoration will be charged to your insurance and then they will collect from the strata afterwards. In either case, you must have condo insurance first before you can have strata cover the restoration.
So if water damaged your walls, carpets and subfloor, and you were not at fault, which insurance would cover what? For the broken pipe, walls and subfloor, the condominium insurance will cover the restoration cost. Afterwards, the strata company will have an obligation to your insurance company to pay them for the costs of the restoration. For the new carpet that was installed after the original construction of your home, your condominium insurance alone will cover it. If you are at fault however, everything is covered by your condominium insurance. If you don’t have one, then the money will have to come out of your own pocket.
As you can see, having condominium insurance is better than just having strata insurance alone. Water damage restoration can be devastating to your property but having it insured gives you peace-of-mind that you are prepared come what may.

The typical homeowner may think that mortgage acceleration is the act toward reducing the indebtedness on residential property by making larger repayments or more frequent ones than the loan contract requires. The short answer would be this is correct. Mortgage acceleration simply put means to speed up the process for paying off the loan. The part that becomes a little vague, or downright mysterious, is just what method is the most effective to accomplish this.
Creative Methods for Mortgage Acceleration
There are several hot methods that have hit the mortgage marketplace in recent years that make even 15-year fixed rate mortgages with bi-weekly payments look like financial dinosaurs. Although critics of these financing methods claim them too good to be true, the actual review dictates that when conducted with the proper information and education, many of the proposed goals stated from applying mortgage acceleration tactics are reasonably achievable.
How Can These Practices Benefit a Homeowner?
Through restructuring a mortgage correctly, an average homeowner can repay the loan in seven to 15 years. There is no sacrifice in living expenses made and, in fact, can cut total debt in half. Hearing this statement elicits instant disbelief from most responders wondering if the statement is true, then why s it not prevalently known to all? Good question! Most believe there is some insidious catch to the practice, its probably fraudulent, illegal or, at best, quite unethical. Not true!
Mortgage History Shows Conservative Mindset
The lending of money has always been mostly a conservative activity. Yes, some venture capitalists take high risks lending money but require great rewards doing so. The home mortgage market has been relatively a conservative arena based upon business practices that basically benefited the lender first. Traditional mortgages 100 years ago called for a 50 percent down payment that our grandparents slaved years to save. Our parents faired a little better, but never dreamed of no-money down arrangements or ever saw a plethora of mortgage products such as adjustable rate mortgages or interest only mortgage loans. And more recently, use of negative amortization loans have become popular mortgage vehicles for short-term real estate investments. Traditional products like a 30-year fixed mortgage possess an amortization schedule that favours the lender. However, in recent years some clever people discovered inside lending institution secrets that could help consumers win the interest war.
Interest Only Mortgage Is Key
At the heart of any successful mortgage acceleration process is an interest-only loan. About 20 years ago in Australia, someone discovered that if an interest-only loan was obtained and repaid in a specific way will allow a consumer to pay down all personal debts three times faster than associated with conventional financing. It requires a great deal of discipline including gaining a month ahead for repayment of an interest-only loan and also associated depositing money, a pay check, into an interest-bearing account. Additionally, through making your loan repayments earlier than required, you can essentially prevent any additional interest from accruing.
Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
This is the vehicle that allows a consumer to deposit money directly into an account that consolidates all your debt mortgage, credit cards, auto loans into one vehicle that allows you the draw off the balance of this loan using checks or a debit card.

There is a long history of the carbon monoxide compound that dates back nearly eight hundred years. While the compound exists naturally and has likely been present since early in the earth’s formation, it wasn’t until a 14th century Spanish chemist named Arnaldus de Villanova described the gases from burning wood, which we today know as carbon monoxide. Almost three hundred years later, a Belgian chemist, Jan Baptista van Helmont, almost lost his life while inadvertently inhaling a carbon dioxide and monoxide mixture.
By the late 1700’s, a French chemist named Lassone was able to take a coal material and heat up zinc oxide, which emitted a then-unknown gas that made a blue flame in his laboratory – carbon monoxide. It is unclear whether a chemist from England named William Cruikshank clearly identified carbon monoxide first at the turn of the 19th century or another English chemist, Joseph Priestly, did so a few years earlier when he identified both carbon dioxide and monoxide.
Poison value well known
While the early studies of carbon monoxide did indeed indicate that it was a poison to humans in many cases, it wasn’t until the mid-1800’s that French physiologist Claude Bernard specifically studied the deadly characteristics of the gas. For several centuries, many scientists have known of the poisonous nature of carbon monoxide. Tiny doses or naturally occurring amounts of carbon monoxide typically cause vomiting, nausea, an unnatural feeling of exhilaration and other effects. Of course as the amount of carbon monoxide increases, can cause unconsciousness as well as severe intestinal occlusions and eruptions. Ultimately, a high enough level of carbon monoxide can cause death.
the action of carbon monoxide poisoning is a relatively simple process. Oxygen molecules enter the lungs and are carried by red blood cells. the oxygen links up with an iron atom in a molecule called oxyhemoglobin. It is later freed by this molecule to aid other cell functions throughout the body that produce energy. When carbon monoxide enters the body this “transference chain” of oxygen is broken. Carbon monoxide bonds with the hemoglobin as does oxygen but it is much more stable (as carbonmonoxyhemoglobin) and lasts longer than oxygen, thus pushing out oxygen and essentially suffocating cells in the body. Since much less oxygen enters the body, less energy is produced and the body is poisoned.
As a cause of death
Carbon monoxide is so prevalent that, throughout the world, more people die of it than any other type of poison. Since it has no smell and is transparent, it is very hard to detect. Luckily, modern technology has caught up and carbon monoxide detectors are produced in huge volumes for home, office and industrial use. they are installed the same way that smoke detectors are. Some typical sources of carbon monoxide are unventilated charcoal fires, broken gas furnaces or stove connections and, of course, automotive and other combustible engine exhaust. this last example is the most prevalent emission of the gas in the modern world today. Often, in such overpopulated places as Mexico City or New York, car emissions are the most common carbon monoxide source with unusually high levels. those who smoke tobacco also have a direct interaction with carbon monoxide. Nearly ten percent of all of the body’s hemoglobin is locked out by carbon monoxide for those who regularly smoke a pack or more a day of cigarettes.
Since the most common form of carbon monoxide emission is from cars, it is important to note the amount of carbon dioxide/carbon monoxide that emerges and how it happens. Both the temperature and the amount of oxygen in place during the reaction that generates carbon monoxide will determine its amount. Typically, carbon monoxide can form when there is little oxygen and combustion takes place at lower temperatures, so when there is more oxygen present and the temperature is higher, greater amounts are generated.
Ironically, for a number of years following the advent of the Industrial Revolution carbon monoxide was used a fuel for automobiles in parts of the world where gasoline could not be easily found. In these places, charcoal-burning devices were integrated into the combustion engine, so that when coal was burned, a high concentration of carbon monoxide was piped directly to the carburetor to be fired to move engine pistons, etc. the gas has also been used to euthanize animals and humans over the years, but the practice has largely fallen off in recent times. Carbon monoxide has also been used to drive oxygen out of substances to reduce them to their purest form. As an example, if iron oxide is used as a source material, and carbon monoxide is forced to interact with it, pure iron will result from the process.
