Get a Deal on Your Dream Home with Automated MLS E-mails

If you are like me, a potential home buyer, I would like to share what I feel to be the best way to find that dream home at a fantastic price.   During these trying economic times buyers I tend to lean toward the many advertised foreclosure and short sale bargains. What buyers don’t know is dealing with a foreclosure or short sale is a BUNCH of extra negotiating, paperwork, red tape and other obstacles.   Sure there are some saving but in most cases it is not all it’s cracked up to be.   A much better way to find that deal with less stress and haggling is to let a local Realtor add you to an automated MLS e-mail list.   Let me explain. Every MLS system allows agents to add their clients to a search parameter specific system.   It’s great.   In simple terms, you will tell you agent the specific areas/communities your are interested in, the price range that fits your budget, bedrooms, bathrooms and other features you are looking for.   When added, you receive an e-mail every time a home the fits your search criteria is listed in the local MLS.

How 70s Airplane Technology Saves You Money in Heating Bills

A thin, invisible film that keeps pilots safe from infrared rays while in the cockpit can save Americans billions of dollars in heating and cooling bills. Money is “flying out the window” in more ways than one for homeowners with standard glass panes. Installing low-emissivity or “Low-E” windows can save home owners a significant amount of money on their heating and cooling bills. The oil crisis of the mid-70s spurred research into ways to conserve energy. During the period of investigation, it was realized that a large amount of energy was lost through the windows of buildings, so explorations were made into the problem of too-open window glass. It was discovered that the technology was, in fact, already created and being used. Up to the time of research into energy-efficiency, only airplane pilots had the privilege of peering through glass treated in this fashion and that only because flight brought one closer in contact with higher amounts of infra-red radiation. The protection for pilots exposed to higher levels of radiation than one could normally expect had an unexpected side-effect: it made the window glass extremely efficient at filtering energy, creating window panes that could effectively retain heat in a house in winter and keep it cooler in the summer. The challenge was not in the creation of the treated glass or in the patents or in the materials. It was in the eternal resistance to things that were new. The researchers were hard-put to prove that this kind of glass worked better than previous incarnations. Gradually, with some clever demonstration modules, manufacturers were won over to the idea of an invisible coating providing all these benefits. As the windows became more popular, the price went down until they are affordable by today’s home owner, not just large corporations. ENERGY STAR now lists these treated windows along with its other approved materials and appliances that can help conserve energy and lower the home owner’s overall expenditures. Now, researchers are working on producing windows of layered, treated glass, which will be even more efficient. A seemingly random discovery in the 1970s has paved the way for more energy efficient homes today. Research into better window construction is going to give the home owner more control over their home’s emissions than ever before. Home owners will be able to save money and conserve their overall energy expenditure, which will in turn make it more available for the future.

Modern Polka Dot Duvet Covers

When we think of a modern home design, the last thing that comes to our mind is polka dot duvet covers. This is because ever since our childhood we have been programmed by television, toys, and even our very own loving parents that polka dots are only for young toddlers. Until recently, I being an adult male would never even think about placing a polka dot duvet cover over my bed. Unless I wanted all my friends to laugh at me. Doing something like that and I wouldn’t be able to show my face at the office ever again as long as I live. That is why when my wife told me she had purchased the most beautiful polka dot duvet bedding from Multi Shop Stop, I was close to wetting myself and was quick to reply with a big, “NO!” Luckily my wife did not give me the option of refusing. She had her mind set in stone and was not willing to change her mind about canceling the oder. Which by the way I begged and pleaded with all my might for her to cancel the order. But, she would not budge instead she forced me to sit down and examine the product on line with her. Before she got to the website I was already shaking my head no in disagreement with her discussion to put a polka dot comforter cover on the same bed that I slept on every night. That’s why I was so surprised when I saw this duvet for myself. It was no less than amazing the pure variety that was offered there. They had duvet covers of all styles at Multi Shop Stop. The most amazing part was the polka dot duvet covers. I had no idea the magnitude of style and class that I could feel flowing off of bedding sets. It went absolutely perfect with our bedroom set and now I am ore than happy to show it off to friends and family. Although they all ask me where I have purchased such a lovely duvet cover, I believe I will keep Multi Shop Stop our little secret.
