“As-Is” is No More | Fast Furniture Fixes | Weeding Out Bad Contractors | Ep #2146

SHOW NOTES: In a strong home sellers-market, selling your home “as-is” is a popular way to avoid buyer demands for repairs. But that strategy often backfires and hurts your chances of getting the best price for your home. We share a better strategy to get the best price with the least hassles. Whether your furniture is heirloom or Ikea, it’s likely to take a few hits from time to time - especially if you have kids! But while the water rings, dings, dents and furniture scratches are inevitable – they are also easy to fix! Do you need to hire a contractor, but afraid you’ll get a bad apple? You can weed out the unqualified or reliable GCs by asking the right questions – we share an easy-to-follow checklist that walks you through. Plus, answers to your home improvement questions: Casey from Oklahoma wants to know how to properly seal a pressure treated deck. Nancy in Pennsylvania is wondering, how do you identify asbestos in her ceiling tiles? Ed in Iowa wants to know if he has an insulation problem with his cathedral ceiling. Janiese from Kansas wants to know if she needs to seal epoxy grout. John from Connecticut is asking what the best flooring is to put on top of concrete? Wendy in Georgia needs better weather stripping for her metal door. Dave in Alaska is having trouble with a floor in a multi-family home. Leah from Kansas has concrete porch that keeps cracking to do earthquakes and wants to know which product to use to fill the cracks. Mike from North Dakota wants to know if he needs to put in drywall and insulation in his detached garage.
