Home Inspections: The Upside of Doing Them, the Downside of Waiving Them.
<p>In the Replay, Christina Sasso talks about she and husband Frank’s plans for the refurbishment of a cottage on their upstate PA property. The cottage was formerly used to process maple syrup. Refurbishing begins with two expansive ProVia® windows to be installed by our own Kevin Kennedy. In the Horror Story, Ron relates how a routine water heater swap-out in his Philadelphia rental unit became a nightmare. In our Feature today, we discuss the value and wisdom of making an offer on a residential property</p><p>contingent upon a satisfactory home inspection. In the feverish sellers’ market of the past couple of years many buyers waived inspections and bid more than asking. And many may realize in the years to come that both of those decisions were mistakes.</p>

What you need is a parcel of land and the patience to see the construction process through. Acorn Deck House offers you the latitude to build small today, and expand per a pre-designed plan as the family grows. Acorn Deck House homes have a particular appeal for younger buyers who have embraced the Mid Mod style of architecture.</p><p><a href="https://www.yourvaluablehome.app/uploads/1/4/4/6/144664754/yvh-3-17-23.mp3"></a> Here’s a Pre-fab Option for Home Buyers Tired of Getting Shut Out of this Sellers’ MarketFile Size: 65305 kbFile Type: mp3<a href="https://www.yourvaluablehome.app/uploads/1/4/4/6/144664754/yvh-3-17-23.mp3">Download File</a></p>

Could This Be a better Way to Rebuild After Natural Disasters?
<p>In the aftermath of hurricane Ian, our entire podcast today is devoted to a fascinating interview with Illya Azaroff, FA IA, an internationally recognized leader in disaster mitigation, resilient planning and design strategies. Illya is the immediate past president of AIA New York, elected to the AIA Board of Directors as a 2023-2025 at-large director, and appointed an AIA COP 27 delegate to attend global talks on climate and disaster risk reduction. COP is a common reference to the United Nations Climate Change Conference. All this in addition to serving as Director of Design and Resilient Strategies at his architectural firm, + Lab, in New York and professor in practice at the New Your City College of Technology. The subject is Illya’s resilient, sustainable design for homes that can withstand 150-mile-per-hour hurricane winds and release water that can cause the walls of a conventionally built house to collapse. This is not theoretical. Illya built such a home in Sandy Hook, Queens, New York to replace one obliterated by Superstorm Sandy, and has since employed his advanced design concepts to construct homes in other parts of the country. This could definitely be the better way to rebuild after natural disasters. Surprisingly, it costs little more than conventional construction. <a href="https://www.yourvaluablehome.app/uploads/1/4/4/6/144664754/ep89.mp3"></a> Could This Be a better Way to Rebuild After Natural Disasters?File Size: 47621 kbFile Type: mp3<a href="https://www.yourvaluablehome.app/uploads/1/4/4/6/144664754/ep89.mp3">Download File</a></p>

Are You Covered for Named Storms and Identify Theft?
Our Replay today is all about permits. When do you need them? Why can they sometimes be difficult to get? Our Horror Story today is about a not-so-handyman who had difficulty putting up one piece of drywall that fell down the next morning. In our Featured segment today, we talk with Mike Celucci, an Erie Insurance agent about homeowners’ coverage....particularly coverage for weather that seems to be getting increasingly severe across the U.S. For example, if you live in an area where you never gave flood insurance a second thought, what happens in the event of a freak flood? Are you covered for named storms? And given the huge increase in identify theft, are you covered if it happens to you? All questions worth posing to your insurance agent.

Post Ian, The Head of an HOA in Captiva, FL Has His Hands Full.
<p>In our Replay today Phil, from New Jersey, purchased an adjoining lot with plans to build a B&amp;B. Interesting idea! We get his initial thinking and offer some ideas of our own. Then, continuing with our series on the Southwest, Florida barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva, we speak with Ed, the head of an HOA in Captiva with responsibility for 68 condo units. The focus of the interview: the challenge of shipping workers and materials to Captiva with the causeway from the mainland down and continuing supply chain delays. Aerial photos show that most of the units and related buildings are largely intact. The big questions: water intrusion and mold, which could necessitate extensive interior reconstruction. <a href="https://www.yourvaluablehome.app/uploads/1/4/4/6/144664754/ep88.mp3"></a> Post Ian, The Head of an HOA in Captiva, FL Has His Hands Full.File Size: 48214 kbFile Type: mp3<a href="https://www.yourvaluablehome.app/uploads/1/4/4/6/144664754/ep88.mp3">Download File</a></p>

Florida residents cope with one of the worst natural disasters in history – focus on Sanibel and Captiva

Our Horror Story and Feature are about how Florida residents are coping with their worst nightmare – Ian. We talk with Jack who has a home on Sanibel, We also talk with his daughter-in-law, Bronwyn, who with husband, Mike, moved their permanent home to neighboring Captiva this past August. Both share their perspectives on devastation Ian left behind. Like most Sanibel residents, Jack has yet to return to his home. Bronwyn reached hers via boat. Without water and power infrastructure, repairs and rebuilding will have to wait. Jack is deeply concerned about Florida’s older residents and their financial and emotional ability to re-build, He cited a frightening statistic: only a little over 15 percent of Florida residents have flood insurance. Listen again next week for Ed’s story about Captiva. He’s challenged by the availability of labor and materials to deal with repairs/reconstruction of his own condo and the dozens of other condos that are his responsibility as head of his HOA. For those homes that were not destroyed, mold will be a huge problem. <a href="https://www.yourvaluablehome.app/uploads/1/4/4/6/144664754/ep87.mp3"></a> Florida residents cope with one of the worst natural disasters in history – focus on Sanibel and CaptivaFile Size: 62663 kbFile Type: mp3<a href="https://www.yourvaluablehome.app/uploads/1/4/4/6/144664754/ep87.mp3">Download File</a></p>
