    "After almost 34 years in our Shaker Heights home and untold contractors, painting companies, and individual freelancers, we have finally found the Reilly expertise, innovation and follow through that make your mother-in-law's testimonials sound modest. Your team was outstanding. The next time I need an out-of-the-ordinary project, I will be sure to call both you for repeated work and your mother-in-law for new recommendations."

  • The Best Cars To Bargain For

    Like most everyday Americans, bargaining the price of a car comes standard before handing over your credit card. But before you start to negotiate, take a look at some of these cars that are the easiest ones to bargain for, courtesy of Jim Gorzelany of Forbes.

    Only the wealthiest – or most foolish – car shoppers will pay full price for a new car. For the rest of us, negotiating the lowest possible price on a given vehicle can amount to saving hundreds or even thousands of dollars, depending on the model.

    While all makes and models come with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP), their final transaction prices are usually negotiable, at least to some degree. According to the Automotive Intelligentsia Money-Saving New Car Guide, the price that a given new-car buyer ultimately pays is a peculiarly and almost constantly moving target that’s subject to a wide range of economic, internal and external factors ranging from the time honored forces of supply and demand to the value of an automaker’s retail incentives and promotions and a dealer’s sheer willingness (or resistance) to sell a particular car for less money.

    While the Internet has helped soften the process somewhat by allowing buyers to obtain and compare online price quotes, these aren’t necessarily the lowest attainable prices. Automotive Intelligentsia suggests buyers consult online pricing sources before setting foot in a dealership, making note of both a model’s MSRP and its so-called invoice price, including options. The idea is to negotiate a transaction price that’s as close to invoice as possible – a dealer’s actual cost is usually a few percent lower. If the manufacturer is offering a direct-to-consumer cash rebate, deduct it from the transaction price only after you’ve negotiated the deal to your satisfaction.
