Question by Kenhobo: Is the property management and home inspection industry the same?
Is property management and home inspection the same?

Is there some overlap?

Can someone explain this to me? Thanks

Best answer:

Answer by Jordan Rayburn
They are completely different. Property management deals with routine maintenance of properties already in use. Inspection is for properties that people are in the process of buying. They need to have it inspected for safety and other potential problems before making the commitment to buy it.

Question by Mike: How much, if any, will landscaping work increase the value of my property?
I want to get some landscaping work done around my house. Maybe $ 3-4k worth. Does landscaping generally have a decent return on housing value? I remember reading something about how kitchen renovations give you the biggest bang for your buck, but I couldn’t find anything about general landscaping. I’m going to have some new plants and bushes put in, re-brick the patio, and have all the rocks replaced with mulch. I’m new to owning a home, so I’m just looking for some insight. Thanks.

Answer by Yaneth G
Yes, absolutely. But is depend what is the scope of work, locations, orientations, etc. How much are you going to expend and do? If you are going to put something for short time or long time like ponds, plants, trees, etc. First, review price properties around your land and decide how much you want to invest. Not more that new owner is going to pay.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 08, 2013

The Boston criminal defense law firm Keegan & Novick recently helped a client accused of fraud avoid two years of imprisonment (Plymouth County Superior Court #12-0331). A judge decided last month that the original sentence would be suspended and replaced by two years of probation instead. The client was represented by Attorney Stephen Novick, a criminal defense attorney with the firm. The client was arrested last year when law enforcement received a tip indicating that she used multiple aliases. Since then, she spent approximately a year under house arrest (Plymouth County Superior Court #12-0331).

?She wants to put this behind her and move on,? said attorney Novick, ?This is a lady who worked hard her whole life, came into this country in 1973 and has been a U.S. citizen since ?78.? According to Attorney Novick, the woman?s frequent name changes weren?t illegal ? they were the result of three past marriages and divorces. ?There?s no restitution and there?s no victim,? Said Novick, ?She paid all the bills.? Although the woman didn?t indicate whether or not she had plans for the future, Novick said that she was happy with the outcome of the case (Plymouth County Superior Court #12-0331).

?I?m not sure what her plans are,? he continued, ?But she?s obviously glad this is over and happy with the outcome. She feels vindicated. She?s 65 years old. There won?t be any problems from her. She had no record?When it was all over, it was a lot about not much.? In fact, Novick even called the initial investigation ?misleading? and noted that the woman had simply saved her old drivers? licenses and passports. In addition to the identity issues, Novick?s client was charged with seven counts of mortgage fraud. All of these charges were dismissed (Plymouth County Superior Court #12-0331).

Attorney Stephen Novick is former police officer and prosecutor. Today, 100% of his legal practice is dedicated to criminal defense. His practice areas include internet crimes, DUI, juvenile crimes, sex crimes, violence crimes, white collar crimes, federal crimes, and a wide variety of other case types. He graduated with a Juris Doctor from New England School of Law. In addition to helping clients in Boston and the surrounding areas, Novick teaches graduate level criminal law classes and criminal justice classes at several colleges and universities in the area.

Glenview, IL (PRWEB) March 07, 2013

Family Video, the nation?s largest movie and game rental chain, is taking a leading role in the fight against Lymphoma. For the second year in a row, Family Video customers are invited to Round It Up for Lymphoma in stores between March 15 and March 31. In 2012, the company raised 1 million dollars towards Lymphoma Research. By simply rounding up transactions to the nearest dollar, Family Video customers will be donating toward one of two causes: the launch of a Lymphoma Tissue Bank at the University of Chicago Medicine, and general lymphoma research at the Lymphoma Research Foundation.

Tissue banks have allowed medical experts to discover new genes, as well as differing genetic profiles of lymphomas that look the same under a microscope. These differing genetic profiles explain why some patients are cured and some are not.

?Lymphoma is a disease that has touched the lives of many of our employees and their loved ones. By starting this tissue bank, we will be able to better understand why lymphoma develops, and study how different environmental factors impact prognosis and treatment. Ultimately, the tissue bank will help us make significant progress towards finding a cure,? said Keith Hoogland, Family Video President. ?Our customers have shown their generosity about this cause in the past, and we are excited for our company to be able to play this role in the fight against lymphoma.?

Lymphoma is the most common type of blood cancer in adults, and the third most common in children. More than 500,000 Americans are living with the disease in some form, and 200 more are diagnosed each day.

Customers can participate at any Family Video location, or online at

Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) March 07, 2013

The winter months are almost over and soon it will be time to break out the dusters, brooms, and vacuums for some spring cleaning. These months are a time where dust mites, pet dander, and other allergens collect throughout the home. Allergy Asthma Technology presents five ways to keep the home allergy-free to prevent these allergens from causing havoc on allergy sufferers come springtime.

1.) Thoroughly Cleaning Carpets with High Quality, Germ-Killing Vacuum Cleaners

Vacuuming is a quick and easy way to eliminate the existence of germs and allergens around the home, especially the ones attracted to carpeting. However, some vacuums stir up allergens, such as dust, instead of permanently removing them. Allergy Asthma Technology?s line of allergy-free vacuums is crafted specifically for allergy sufferers to ensure the elimination of harmful allergens. Most of them contain HEPA filtration technology to filter out the allergens from, not only the carpet, but the allergens lingering in the air, as well. Homeowners with pets can find vacuums specifically tailored for pet owners that work to collect pet dander from carpets and furniture in efforts to eliminate pet allergens. Other vacuums contain UV-C technology that kills 99.9 percent of germs on surfaces, ensuring that a home is germ-free and ready for guests to inhabit.

2.) Using UV Technology to Kill Germs

Instead of intensely cleaning the germ-prone areas of the home, UV sanitizers work to eliminate 99.9 percent of germs on such surfaces. The winter season is typically when most individuals obtain colds and flus. Individuals can take extra precautions to prevent these illnesses from spreading by killing the culprits on the spot. UV sanitizers work to kill germs on smaller surfaces, such as office desks, kitchen counters or tables, bathroom counters and sinks, and can even be used on bedding.

3.) Replacing Furnace Filters

Although furnace filters would not be one?s first thought as a way to reduce germs and allergens around the home, quality furnace filters do, in fact, affect the interior air quality of homes. The purpose of a furnace filter is to capture dust and other allergens that may spread through the home due to the interior heating system. Frequently replacing filters keeps the air quality of households clean and allergen-free for healthier and happier living. Traditional furnace filters are required to be replaced every month, however, Allergy Asthma Technology provides high-quality, triple-layer allergy-free furnace filters that only require replacing every three months.

4.) Washing Bedding with Allergy-Free Laundry Detergent

Homeowners should wash sheets and other bedding as part of spring cleaning. Washing bedding in hot water will kill bed bugs and dust mites that may affect guests. Washing bedding with an allergy-free laundry detergent ensures that bed bugs and dust mites no longer exist within the bedding. As an added benefit, Allergy Asthma Technology?s Laundry Detergent excludes harsh chemicals that may cause a reaction to humans with sensitive skin or an allergy to a certain chemical that resides in most laundry detergents.

5.) Cleanse Pets with Allergy-Free Shampoo

Pet allergies are very common in humans. Although pet owners usually are not allergic to their own pets, guests may be. Unfortunately, vigorously cleaning a home will not sufficiently remove all of the pet dander. Pet dander can linger in places one can never imagine. Prior to entertaining guests and cleaning the house, pet owners should thoroughly wash their pets with allergy-free pet shampoo. The shampoo works up to 30 days and will prevent the release of animal skin particles that most humans are allergic to.

About Allergy Asthma Technology

Located in Morton Grove, IL, Allergy Asthma Technology has been helping allergic and asthmatic individuals by providing products to help with symptoms for over 40 years. The company continually searches for medically approved allergy and asthma products that will help their customers lead a healthier life. The company offers all types of anti-allergen products from allergy-free bedding to allergy-free furnace filters. Allergy Asthma Technology is dedicated to helping enhance their customer?s quality of life by providing important information, premium products, and quality customer service.

Question by : What is a good anniversary gift for my parents?
Can you give me some ideas? It’s my parents’ 18th Anniversary next Sunday and I want to get them something. I’ve never bought them an anniversary gift before so I have no idea what to get. My dad likes coffee, computer games, and history. My mom likes decorating and vintage things.

P.S. I realize a week isn’t very long to look for something so it’s all right if I give the gift late.

Question by : How do I publish a genealogy book on French and English royalty?
I am planning on writing a book on the genealogy of French royalty (especially the Merovingians) and then another on English royalty. It’s just going to be your standard genealogy book with a couple of interesting stories in it. I want it to be sold in like bookstores and Amazon and what not. How do I go about doing this? And what about copyrights?

Best answer:

Answer by Phyl Mar
To get a book published you must have it accepted by a publisher. Send a copy of your finished work to every publisher you can find.

However, books have been written about both so I suspect you would have a very difficult time getting it published. Their genealogy is also available online. I refer you to this site.
