A year ago I gave advice to a friend to have a pre listing inspection done. He did not take my advice. He was planning on moving into a condo and would be selling his house. Well, he got his condo and put his house on the market only to find out he would lose $20,000 because the buyer's inspector had everything he needed to repair/ replace in his inspection. If you know you are going to be moving out of your current residency, have it inspected now so you can fix things before you sell it.
Foundation settlement is directly affected by water run-off. Make sure all of your downspouts are operable and that you have extensions and splash guards. It is important to clean out your gutters for proper drainage.
TIP: If you do not like getting up on a ladder, no problem. I recommend buying a gutter cleaning tip for your water hose and also a telescoping mirror. This will help get the job done. They are available pretty much anywhere.
The pre-inspection agreement is an understanding between the client and the inspector. It discusses the scope of work to be performed and the items that are included and not included the home inspection report.
My son and I spent Saturday working on our kayak safety drills. We went to the North Jetty and practiced flipping out of our kayaks. It is important to practice this at least 25 times. A boating buddy that has practiced their safety drills understands stressful situations. They will react in a manner that could be vital to his or her survival as well as their boating buddy. PRACTICE SAFETY/SURVIVAL!
Florida kayak safety gear: Life Jacket/paddle float/whistle/paddle lanyard/pump/tow rope/flare gun/duct tape
TIP: My son has a sit in kayak and uses a sponge to soak up water in his kayak along our paddle. Please get out and enjoy Charlotte Harbor, Boca Grande, Englewood, Venice, and wherever your paddle takes you!

Summer is approaching and that means A/C season is upon us. If you don't have a seasonal checkup already scheduled, now is the time to call your local H.V.A.C. specialist. After your seasonal checkup, make sure to change your filters regularly.
TIP: Tape a ziploc"freezer" bag to your air handler(the unit inside the garage or utility room) with a copy of repairs/maintenance.
