of the cost of a midrange roof
replacement is recouped at

There are many different
shingle options available to
suite any design aesthetic.
One of the leading roofing
trends uses shingles that
look like wood shake, but are
created with lighter, more
cost effective materials. This
gives an upscale appearance
to a home at an affordable
price. TAMKO’s Heritage shingle line is a good
example of this trend. With a
unique granule mix and distinct color drop, the shingles
create attractive, random
shadowing across the entire
roof space.
A growing trend in roofing
predicted to take off in 2016
and beyond is metal shingles.
MetalWorks shingles add
elegance to a home by allow-
ing homeowners to create a
variety of unique looks. More
than just durable and stylish,
all MetalWorks shingles are
made with ENERGY STAR
qualified cool colors, which
may help lower home cooling
costs.
For example, StoneCrest
Slate Steel Shingles closely
replicate the random, highly
desirable finish of natural
slate. For modern homes,
StoneCrest Tile Steel Shingles have a smooth, uniform
look for refined style. AstonWood Steel Shingles look like
traditional wood shingles, yet
offer the performance and
durability of steel.
As you anxiously wait this
year for your refund from
Uncle Sam, consider using
your cash toward a new roof.

Top 5 home projects to help you save money
(MS) — It’s remodeling season, and
with so many projects on the to-do list,
which should you tackle first? While
some projects provide great long-term
return on investment, a few simple ones
can provide instant savings. Here are
the top home spring projects to help
you save money:
Caulk around windows and doors
— Stop air leaks around your home by
sealing existing gaps and cracks. Use
caulking or weather stripping around
doors and windows. Installing a door
sweep is also a good idea.
Insulate your home — Use insulation with a high R-value, such as Roxul
Comfortbatt, which can be used to top
up insulation in your attic. Aim for an
R-value of 50 or a depth of 16 inches.
For whole home efficiency, ensure
other areas of your home, such as crawl
spaces, basement headers, walls and
ceilings, are well insulated. It will keep
your house cool in the warm weather
and take the stress off your air conditioning unit.
Clean your AC unit — Come spring,
it’s not uncommon to find an air conditioner’s condenser and compressor
blocked up with dirt and debris. This
can result in greater stress on the unit,
causing it to work harder. Giving it a
thorough cleaning is easy and can help
maximize your AC unit’s service life
while minimizing your energy bill.
Plant trees — Direct sunlight can
heat up surfaces and building materials,
as well as the interior temperature of
your home. Consider planting trees in
strategic locations to provide shade and
reduce cooling costs.
Install a rain barrel — Water is an
important, but costly resource. Installing a rain barrel is an easy and affordable measure to reduce your water consumption, while keeping your lawn and
garden looking
great.
These simple home maintenance
tasks can be well worth the effort,
potentially providing hundreds of dollars in annual savings.

Understanding the millennial home
• Ability to maximize
all spaces within the home
(efficient, creative storage)
• Urban conveniences in
suburban settings (able to
walk to parks and schools)
• Plentiful outdoor
space, including an outdoor
kitchen when possible
• Customizable floor
plans (i.e., ability to have
a nanny or mother-in-law
suite with kitchenette and
more)
(BPT) - For years, consumer buying power and
purchasing trends have
focused around baby boomers. However, within the past
several years, the spotlight
has shifted to the 80-plus
million Americans between
the ages of 25 and 34 known
as millennials. Now the
largest demographic group
in history, this generation
is undoubtedly the most
studied. Significant research
findings, speculations and
predictions about shopping
habits and motivators are
driving the world to cater to
this influential group.
Home ownership is one
example. Many speculate
millennials aren’t interested
in, or in a position to buy
a home because they’re
strapped with student loans
and a tightened job market.
While much of that is true,
research paints a different
overall picture. In fact, in
many U.S. cities, millennials make up half or more of
home purchasers (many of
them first-time home buyers), according to a recent
study by Realtor.com and
reported by Bloomberg.
So what are millennials
looking for in their home?
According to the recent
Responsive Home initiative conducted by Builder
Magazine, TRI Pointe Group
(Pardee Homes) and partners such as Danze, Inc.,
several priorities rose to the
top of their “must have” list
when purchasing or building
a home:
• Elements with high
design that offer functionality and value
“There’s no doubt this generation is very design savvy
and has outstanding taste,”
says Sharon Overby, vice
president of Danze, Inc. “We
were excited to be part of the
Responsive Home project.
Our kitchen and bath faucets,
shower systems, bath accessories and others play well
with the design-functionalityvalue ratio.”
Among the unique design
aspects was the use of satin
black as a finish throughout
many of the bathrooms.
Showerheads, faucets and
accessories were often
mounted on white subway
tile (grouted in black) for a
fun, impactful style.
In one of the kitchens,
Responsive Home Creative
Director Bobby Berk paired
a white farmhouse sink with
a Danze pull-down faucet in
a tumbled bronze finish. The
juxtaposition of mixing and
matching elements such as
these are at the heart of millennial style.
Outdoor living has proven
to be a hot button for many
buyers, including these
25-34-year-olds. The Responsive Home project featured
unique use of outdoor space
that showcased sunken sitting areas surrounded by
beautiful gardens and water
features, various applications
of large-screen TVs and, of
course, fully functional beautiful outdoor kitchens.
“The Danze line is a great
match for this set of home
buyers, whether they’re
building new or fixing up an
existing home,” adds Overby.
“We’ve proven that eyecatching design and valuefocused pricing can co-exist
in kitchen and bath products,
which are often a big aspect
to the personality and style
of a home.”

3 tips
tSedalia Democrat
SHOWCASE OF HOMES
for breaking the DIY barrier
March 2016 9
(BPT) - Whether inspired by countless
cable shows or the desire to have the perfect
kitchen, more Americans are doing their own
home improvement projects. Laying hardwood floors, installing plumbing and replacing windows has become another DIY task
like changing your oil.
Consider these following tips in determining how to tackle your next job.
Assess the job
Define what you want to accomplish. Determine your timetable, budget and the project
scale and scope. Match your tools from there.
Research the project and tools
Many people turn to professionals for jobs
they could do themselves because they don’t
know what tools they need. To avoid the
high cost of hiring a professional, research
tool reviews, equipment magazines and even
retailer websites like Northern Tool + Equipment to help guide you with your tool selection.
One’s skill level also plays a factor when it
comes time to choose a tool. A veteran DIYer
might not need some tools someone performing a project for the first time might. And to
fit these needs, purchasing specialized tools
like the Ironton Rotary Hammer Drill allows
you to do a specific task - like drilling through
concrete - while avoiding the cost of hiring a
contractor.
Consider ROI
Look in depth at the tool you need to buy
and at the different brands on the market that
fit for your budget. Private label brands often
offer value. And instead of bouncing from one
hardware store to the next, utilize product
comparison tools online to compare and contrast product life, value, capabilities and quality to determine the best ROI.
While DIY projects often save money, they
also provide an enhanced pride in ownership associated with seeing your handiwork.
With the right tools, you can tackle any home
improvement project. Ultimately it’s the person who makes the tool, not vice versa. So
grab your tool belt, slide on your work gloves
and get it done.

The answer to overcoming
color cowardice in home
decorating: more natural light
Every color looks different
depending on the type of
light by which you view it.
This effect is one reason why
so many people hesitate to
decorate with rich, dark or
vibrant colors in their home,
opting instead to stick with
neutrals.<br/>How can you
make the most of color in
your home while minimizing
the risk of disappointment?
The solution is as simple
as the problem — decorate
your home with natural
light.<br/>Skylights like
those from Velux America
can admit ample natural light
into your home, enhancing
not only the colors of your
home decor, but your mood
as well. Place a remote-controlled, solar-powered freshair skylight in a kitchen or
bath and you may feel more
comfortable taking a bold
color risk, plus you can reap
the benefits of passive ventilation. The skylights carry
a no-leak warranty and close
automatically in case of rain.
Add solar-powered blinds,
and it’s easy to give a
room a whole new look simply by closing or opening
the blinds. What’s more,
light blocking or light filtering blinds — available in a
variety of designer colors
and patterns — further
enhance the Energy Starqualified skylights’ energy
efficiency.<br/>Installing the
latest solar-powered fresh-air
skylights with solar blinds,
both of which are operated
by programmable remote
control, can qualify you for a
30 percent federal tax credit
on the products as well as
installation costs.
Enjoy healthful natural light and passive ventilation,
plus privacy, in the bath with Energy Star-qualified
solar powered fresh air skylights. Solar powered binds
in designer colors and patterns add an extra touch to
your decor. The skylights and blinds are operated by
remote control and qualify for a 30 percent federal tax
credit, as do installation costs. Get details at www.
whyskylights.com
Brighten your kitchen
while venting away
cooking heat and odors
with Energy Starqualified solar powered
fresh air skylights. Add

blinds for style, light
control and added
energy efficiency. Both

Tips for going green,
saving green, with
greywater recycling
(BPT) - Water conservation isn’t just for Californians
and others who live in dry
climates. Although the
Golden State’s water woes
grabbed headlines last summer, it’s not the only state
potentially facing water
shortages. Nor is it the only
one where conservationminded homeowners are
turning to greywater recycling to reduce water bills
and preserve the environment.
Greywater - also called
gray water - is all the water
that goes down the drain
from bathroom sinks,
showers, tubs and washing machines. While you
wouldn’t want to drink it
because it contains traces
of dirt, hair and household
cleaning products, greywater
is safe to use for outdoor
irrigation. By rerouting greywater outdoors, you can keep
your lawn green and your
vegetables growing without
increasing your water bill.
“We’re seeing increasing
demand for products that
facilitate greywater recycling,” says Chris Peterson
with Saniflo. The company
specializes in above-floor
plumbing, including greywater pumping systems and
macerating toilet systems
for residential and light-
commercial applications.
“Homeowners are realizing
that recycling greywater is
an effective way to lower
their water bills, meet outdoor water needs and do
something good for the environment.”
What’s more, municipalities and counties in
California are blazing trails
by rewarding homeowners
and businesses that recycle
greywater. Many are offering
rebates for property owners
who use greywater systems
to irrigate their landscapes.
While California’s drought
conditions have been prolonged and extreme, the
state is not alone in being
concerned about water
consumption. A 2014 study
by the U.S. Government
Accountability Office found
40 out of 50 state water managers expect shortages in at
least part of their states within the next 10 years. States
have begun taking a number
of steps to improve how they
manage water, the GAO said,
including enacting conservation measures and creating
drought preparedness plans.
“Homeowners who begin
recycling greywater now
could be well ahead of the
curve if and when their
states begin requiring water
conservation measures,”
Peterson says. “Meanwhile,
they’ll decrease their water
and sewer costs by irrigating
with recycled water, rather
than fresh.”
Greywater recycling
systems can be installed in
homes under construction
or existing homes undergoing renovation. In fact, says
Peterson, many Saniflo customers who add greywater
systems to their homes do
so as part of a kitchen or
bathroom renovation. “The
compact size of our Saniswift pump makes it easy to
tuck away inside a cabinet
for a kitchen or bathroom
sink, a clothes or dishwasher,
shower, laundry or bar sink.
Like all Saniflo products, you
don’t have to open the floor
or break concrete to plumb
the Saniswift, so it can go
virtually anywhere.”
If you’re interested in
greywater recycling for your
home, Peterson offers some
basic information:
•Although some areas
may allow you to recycle
water from kitchen sinks,
greywater is typically considered the water that comes
from showers, bathroom
sinks, dishwashers and
clothes washers. Water from
toilets is not greywater.
• Experts estimate about
40 to 50 percent of the waste
water generated by the typical American home qualifies
as greywater and could be
recycled.
• Not all greywater is the
same. The water from bathtubs, showers and bathroom
sinks is relatively cleaner
than the water from kitchen
sinks, clothes washers and
dishwashers, which may contain food scraps and cleaning
products. It’s important to
choose a greywater filter and
pump system that’s made to
handle the type of greywater
produced by the utility you’re
connecting it to.
• In addition to lowering
your water and sewer bill
when you install a greywater
recycling system, you may be
eligible for a rebate. Check
with your local water utility
to see if it offers a rebate in
your area.
For more information
about water recycling,
including greywater recycling, visit the EPA’s water
recycling web page. To learn
more about greywater pumping systems for the home,
including kitchens, laundry
rooms and bathrooms, visit

8 homeowner dilemmas solved with 1 simple fix
(BPT) - What if we
told you there is a rather quick improvement
that will take care of
eight issues around the
house, all at once?
Sit back, read along
and see how many of
these common problems apply to you. We’ll
then reveal the one
simple fix.
Your savings, or
lack of thereof
With bright sun
comes warmth, which
can be very welcome
during the cold winter
months. But in the summer it can wreak havoc
on your AC. Do you
feel like you want to cry
every time your energy
bill comes? Surely you
have better ideas for
spending that money.
Your privacy
Unless your house
is naturally private,
say perched on a hill
or with no neighbors
for miles; you probably
crave some privacy.
This mystery improvement can help right
away. Similarly, when
you want to take in the
view, it will quietly and
quickly disappear.
Your Sunday football viewing
Who doesn’t love big
windows that bring in
tons of light? This is
until sun glare makes
you miss the winning
touchdown. Sunshine
makes us happy - it is a
scientific fact - but too
much sun isn’t good,
neither for your skin
nor your possessions. If
you want to prevent the
glare and the damaging
UV rays from entering
your home, there is one
easy answer.
Your safety
Do you live in an area
where the weather can
be tricky? Or on a golf
course, where the golf
balls are flying dangerously? With this mystery improvement you
can protect your home
from the weather and
your window glass from
flying objects!
Have you guessed
what improvement are
we talking about yet?
Your security
This improvement
can not only hurricaneproof your home, but
can also help make it
burglar proof. Did you
know 22 percent of all
residential break-ins
happen via back doors
- The same beloved
French patio doors you
just had to have and
enjoy every day? If you
think we want to push
“prison style” security
bars, think twice. This
solution is just as stylish as it is functional.
Your snooze time
If you are a daytime
sleeper, light sleeper or
just want to sleep in on
a weekend, you know
how annoying outside
noise and light can be.
You can create a perfect
sleeping environment at
the touch of a button..
By using our home
improvement champion
you can lower your
homeowners insurance!
Finally, the answer
Did you guess that
the one home improvement to take care of
many of the dilemmas
in your home is - ta da!
- an automatic rolling
shutter!
They are also known
as European shutters,
as they are widely popular in Europe. Somfy
motorized rolling shutters can be integrated
into walls and soffits in
new construction, or
can be easily attached
to existing structures.
They are easily controlled from the inside
via switches, remotes,
automatic sensors, timers or by the myLink
app via your smartphone, whether you are
home or away.

a Culture of Preparedness and
helping people be self-sufficient
in instances of disaster.
Honore says it is essential all
families develop an emergency
plan. This plan should include a
safe place in your home where
you can find shelter and a safe
location if you are away from
home or you must leave. Each
family member should also
have a cell phone so they can
communicate with each other
and every home should contain an emergency kit. The kit
should include a weather radio,

Eco-friendly real estate trends are growing in popularity, as more and more home buyers are looking for ways to
protect the planet and reduce the often considerable costs
associated with home ownership. In a survey of more
than 1,000 consumers in the United States, SurveyMonkey.com, working in conjunction with Blueshift Research,
found that 1 in 3 consumers prefer eco-friendly products,
and 35 percent are willing to spend more money on
products that are good for the environment. Such trends
are reflected in the real industry, where many buyers are
looking for tinier homes that produce smaller carbon footprints. According to the National Association of Home
Builders, the average new home in 2015 was expected to
be roughly 2,200 square feet. That’s roughly 10 percent
smaller than the average new home built in 2010. Smaller
homes consume less energy, which appeals to homeowners looking to save money and live more eco-friendly
lifestyles. In addition to smaller homes, homeowners are
increasingly looking to sustainable materials when building or renovating their homes. Products that conserve
water, including low-flow toilets and water-conserving
showerheads, have also grown in popularity.

3 tips on choosing the right window for your kitchen or bath remodel
(BPT) - With any kitchen or bath
renovation, there are many aspects to consider - cabinets, counters, floors, etc. And
whether you’re making small updates or
completely gutting the room, make sure to
include window replacement in your list
of must-haves.
How can new windows benefit a room?
With a style that fits your personality, the
right window provides natural light and
ventilation to help create a beautiful, functional and comfortable living space.
Keep three key elements in mind when
choosing a window for your kitchen or
bath:
Choose a window style with function in
mind.
Kitchen windows are often placed
above counters or sinks, while bathroom
windows tend to be located above tubs,
beside showers or above bathroom counters. The placement of these windows
can sometimes make them hard to reach,
so choosing a window style that’s easy to
open and close is a must.
Sliding windows or casement windows
- which crank open and closed - are good
options for hard-to-reach areas like above
a counter or sink.
Ventilation is another key consideration
for kitchens and bathrooms. A properly
placed window can help decrease the
amount of heat and moisture retained
from cooking or showering. Awning windows, which can be pulled in or pushed
out, are a good option for ventilation, and
perform best when placed close to the
ceiling or above eye level.
Select a window material that fits your
needs.
Kitchens and baths require windows
that are easy to clean and can withstand
moisture, so materials like vinyl or fiberglass are ideal.
Fiberglass windows can withstand
extreme heat and cold, are energyefficient and can have the quality look of
painted wood. Vinyl windows are easy to
care for and don’t require additional painting or staining.
Consider additional features and
options
If you want to maintain privacy while
maximizing natural light in the bathroom,
choose a window with obscure or opaque
glass.
Or, you can streamline the look and
function of your kitchen or bath with
between-the-glass cordless blinds or
shades, which minimize allergens and
eliminate clutter. Because these window
coverings are tucked between the panes
of glass, you won’t have to worry about
moisture or stains.
Take it one step further and motorize
the blinds or shades. Controlled via a
remote or home automation system, the
blinds or shades can customize the level
of light in the bathroom or kitchen. Pella’s
Insynctive technology is just one example
of motorized blinds and shades.

5 simple
ways to
go green
at home
and save
money
(MS) — Thinking green
throughout the year can
offer some significant
benefits. Here are some
easy ways you can go
green in your own home
and lower your energy
bills:
Invest in a programmable
thermostat. It will automatically adjust the temperature in your house,
saving you energy while
you’re out for the day,
away on vacation or
sleeping.
Switch all of your lightbulbs to CFLs (compact
fluorescent light) or LED
bulbs. They last longer
and use up to 75 percent
less energy than standard
incandescent bulbs, saving you money on your
electric bills.
Insulate well. Use
insulation with a high
R-value, such as Roxul
Comfortbatt, to top up
insulation in your attic.
Aim for an R-value of 50
or a depth of 16 inches.
For whole home efficiency, ensure other areas
of your home are well
insulated, such as crawl
spaces, basement headers, walls and ceilings. It
will keep your house cool
in the warm weather and
take the stress off your air
conditioning unit.
Stop air leaks around
your home by sealing
existing gaps and cracks.
Use caulking or weather
stripping around doors
and windows. Installing a
door sweep is also a good
idea.
Replace old appliances
with energy-efficient models. Only do laundry or
run the dishwasher when
you have full loads.
Remember that many little improvements can add
up — providing valuable
monthly savings for you,
while protecting our environment for the future.

5 smart upgrades
forthe most-used
rooms in your home
It makes perfect sense to upgrade the
rooms where you spend the most time,
but in high-traffic areas, you can not
afford to make changes just for the sake
of cosmetics. You want improvements
that can enhance your enjoyment of a
room and its functionality. Here are five
smart improvements:
1. Add natural light - Adding skylights
is a practical, cost-effective and attractive way to bring more natural light into
virtually any room. Remote-controlled,
solar-powered fresh-air skylights from
Velux America provide not just natural
light, but passive ventilation, a real plus
in kitchens and baths. Adding solar powered blinds, in designer colors and patterns, increases energy efficiency while
giving you total control over the amount
of sunlight entering a room through the
skylight. Visit www.whyskylights.com to
learn more.
2. Add organization/storage - Adding
organization and storage to rooms where
clutter typically collects is an easy, costeffective way to improve the function of
the room and how you feel about spending time in it.
3. Improve ventilation - Ventilation in
kitchens and bathrooms carries away
excess moisture that can cause mold
and mildew, and creates a fresher, more
healthful environment by exhausting
stale indoor air.
4. Replace older, inefficient fixtures
and appliances - Fixtures and appliances
are key elements of kitchens and bathrooms. Older ones can cost you money
because they use more electricity and
water than newer, more efficient models.
5. Freshen the foundations wall color,
flooring materials and trim are fundamental elements in any room. Simply
repainting walls and woodwork can completely change the way any room looks.

Save money and stay
cool as temperatures rise
(MS) — Excessive energy bills can
be a concern in spring and summer,
just as much as they are in the winter.
So how can you save money while
keeping your home cool? The solution
is simple: Top up your attic insulation.
A poorly insulated attic is a primary
source of energy loss, forcing your
AC unit to work harder than necessary over the warmer months. Most
attics are insulated, but oftentimes the
amount of insulation present is inadequate — especially in older homes.
Over time, insulation can settle and
compact, allowing heat to escape
through gaps.
Topping it up is easy. Ideally, you
want to aim for a depth of 16 inches of
insulation for an overall R-value of 50.
When existing insulation is present,
simply level existing insulation to the
top of the joist. Lay a fire- and moisture-resistant batt insulation, like Roxul
Comfortbatt, on top of joists, running
perpendicular to the first layer. Ensure
batts are butted against each other
tightly. Fit batts closely to cross joists;
cut batt if necessary (this can be done
easily with a serrated blade or bread
knife) and leave no space between layers. Don’t forget to insulate the attic
hatch to the same level as the rest of
the attic. Apply weather-stripping to
the edge of the hatch to reduce air leakage. Keep in mind that only IC-rated
electrical fixtures can have insulation
placed with zero clearance. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions and local
building code to insulate around the
chimney.
When a house is insulated properly,
energy savings can add up over time.
Remember, insulation starts working
the moment it is installed and can last
for the life of the building. Tips on this
easy, low-cost DIY project that will
reduce your home’s energy loss and
save you money are available at www.
diywithroxul.com.

Getting an early start on spring
(BPT) - As soon as the first morning frost appears and the
first snowflakes start to pile up, many begin looking forward
to spring. Images of green leaves, red and orange blossoms,
fresh vegetables and herbs help keep the cold winter days
manageable as you wait for the ground to thaw so you can
start planting. A good green thumb knows early starts in the
garden or yard ensure lush, healthy plants, especially if you’re
planting trees.
Many people do not realize that they shouldn’t wait for
summer. Young trees do best when they are put into the
ground in spring and have ample time to establish themselves
in the soil before either extremes of heat of cold hit.
Therefore, if part of your winter landscaping daydreams
include planting trees, it’s important to know you’ll need to
be ready to plant early. Winter is an opportunity to begin
planning.
Five simple ways trees are practical and beautiful
Few things can be so practical and as beautiful as a tree. It’s
no wonder that with the rising popularity of the do-it-yourself
lifestyle, more people are deciding to plant trees in their yard.
Here are five simple reasons why:
1. A mature tree can add up to $10,000 to your property
value.
2. Trees can reduce energy costs by providing shade to a
house in the summer.
3. Trees naturally offset carbon emissions.
4. Because many change from season to season, trees add a
variety of different colors to your yard and allow for a range
of creative choices and combinations.
5. Trees help make memories. Watching a tree grow in your
yard from year to year builds a connection between you, your
family, your home and the memories you make there.
An easy way to get started
The nonprofit Arbor Day Foundation is encouraging people
to get an early start on their tree planting this year by offering 10 free flowering trees with a $10 membership. Which 10
flowering trees a new member will receive is based on what
the state forester recommends or other trees selected for
your area to ensure they thrive when planted.
The 6 to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow and are currently scheduled to be shipped in March or April, a perfect
time for optimal, early season planting. So if you’re already
getting excited about spring projects, visit www.arborday.org/
earlyplanting to make sure your trees arrive at the right time
for planting where you live.

Did you know?
According to the National Association of Realtors®
2015 Profile of Home Staging, 49 percent of realtors
representing buyers say home staging impacts most
buyers’ final decisions. Home staging is the act of
preparing a home for sale by presenting it in such a
way as to appeal to as many potential buyers as possible. Professional staging firms often address a home’s
interior to reduce clutter and rearrange furniture with a
goal toward making a strong impression on prospective
buyers during open house events or private showings.
The NAR Profile found that the living room is the most
important room to stage followed by the kitchen and
the master bedroom. Eighty-one percent of realtors said
staged homes make it easier for prospective buyers to
visualize properties as their future homes. In addition,
10 percent of realtors said homes decorated against
buyers’ tastes will negatively impact the homes’ values,
further emphasizing the potential benefit of staging
homes rather than showcasing existing homeowners’
personal preferences.

Who is responsible
for repairs during a home sale?
Many questions arise during the
home-buying process. Buyers looking
at homes that require a good deal of
TLC may wonder who is responsible for
the home’s repairs, particularly if such
repairs are needed to secure a certificate of occupancy. Depending on the
situation, there is no clear-cut answer.
There is no perfect home, and things
that are acceptable to the current owner
may not be acceptable to the buyer who
is looking to become the next owner.
The home-buying process is typically
a careful cooperation between buyer
and seller to find a middle ground. The
buyer may have to make some concessions, as will the seller. Ultimately, it is
this cooperation that often determines if
the sale goes through or is terminated.
Before any negotiations can begin
regarding repairs, it is adviseable for a
buyer to have an independent inspector
come out and look over the home and
property. Most real estate agents will
suggest this be done as a first priority
-- even before a contract is entered on
the home. An inspection will unveil
any potential problems in a home and
indicate things that the buyer may not
be aware of, including items that do not
meet with code or could be unsafe. An
inspector also may point out problems
that could cause a mortgage lender to
give pause. This may mean the lender
will deem problems unsafe and refuse
to fund the mortgage until repairs are
made.
A copy of this inspection report
should be sent to the home seller to
review with his or her attorney and
real estate agent. The buyer working
with his own real estate attorney and
agent can petition for certain repairs to
Home buyers may be able to
negotiate that sellers repair major
structural issues, such as a leaky
roof. If not, negotiate a lower sale
price.
be made. Many sellers will make such
repairs to ensure the purchase goes
through, or they will accept a lower purchase price to compensate for the needed repairs, which the buyer will then
make. Buyers might want to hire a good
real estate attorney to write clauses into
the contract to protect their interests.
This allows the buyer to forfeit the sale
and walk away from the contract should
an issue arise.
The rules often change when buying a home that is a short sale or in
foreclosure. A home that is in distress
is typically in this situation because the
current owners cannot afford to pay
their mortgage, and thusly, are not able
to afford repairs. According to Think
Glink, a money-management Web site,
buyers may try to negotiate repairs with
the seller, but they shouldn’t assume
that sellers (or lenders in the event of a
bank-owned home) are responsible for
the repairs. Generally speaking, most
short sales and foreclosures are sold “as
is” and may even specify that repairs
and requirements for the certificate of
occupancy are the buyer’s responsibility.
A buyer also can ask to have the home
price reduced to cover the repairs. But
foreclosures are often already deeply
discounted.
Buyers should know that, for a home
that is not in foreclosure, there are
some repairs that should ultimately be
the responsibility of the seller. If these
repairs are not made, a buyer should
think strongly about walking away from
the deal, according to Why6Percent.
com, a real estate marketing site. Such
repairs include:
•lender-required repairs that could impact home safety
•leaky pipes
•water penetration issues, including a bad roof
•unsafe decking or handrails
•wet basements or crawl spaces
•insecure foundations or obvious structural damage
• poorly functioning sewer lines or septic system
It is always adviseable for buyers to
speak with a reliable real estate attorney
and a trusted real estate agent to guide
them through the process of buying a
home. These people can help buyers
navigate the important decisions that
can affect the home they’ll be living in
for the next several years.
