    "The house absolutely glows with a new-found beauty. Tom is a genius in his ability to coordinate the work done to my home. In between many raindrops, he managed to get the painting done in a few days and have Mike, the roofer, and his crew tear off and replace the shingles and wood in two days time. And even though I'm on the west side, Tom was able to catch me before I left for work around 8:00 a.m. Your company has really boosted the resale value of my house. I plan to engage you again for interior work in the coming years. Thank you for a job well done!"

  • Tips For Renting Your Home

    Do you know someone who is looking to rent their first home? More people are renting homes or apartments versus buying....no surprise. If you are new to renting a house, and don't know where to begin, don't feel left out, it's a very tricky situation, especially if you don't know where to begin. Luckily, there are many tips and advice for renting, like this article from This Is Money, which breaks down the steps to renting your own home.

    Renting is often thought of as something done by people before climbing the property ladder, but many homeowners opt to rent for periods of time while waiting to buy.

    Choose the right property and agent, and renting can be a joy - the money might be paying someone else's mortgage but freedom and the ability to pass on responsibility is yours. On the other hand, take the wrong route and a tenancy can be six months or longer of daily stress and pain.

    But there are ways to make sure your next letting experience is more hospitable than horrible. Here are This is Money's top ten tips for renting a home:

    1. Do your research

    Spend plenty of time investigating the area. The advantage of renting is that you can move when your tenancy is up, but don't think too short-term – make sure this is the area you want to live in. If you have children make sure you look into the local schools and not just the nearest one – you may not be guaranteed a place. The best way to get a feel for an area is to visit and have a wander around on foot.

    You can search www.findaproperty.com for properties in the area and local information.

    2. Use the whole rental market

    Don't just walk into the High Street estate agents. Large firms can have a wide range of property but check out property management agencies and private landlords too and make sure you are not paying over the odds.

    A good place to search for independent agents online is listing websites. www.loot.co.uk covers the whole of the UK and has thousands of properties to rent. In London gumtree.com can also be a useful place to look.

    3. Take your time viewing properties

    Looking around rental properties can be a bit of a whistlestop tour but if you find somewhere you like don't just give it a ten minute once over. Check everything carefully. Does it have central heating, a washing machine, dishwasher, decent fridge and freezer? What are the showers like? Are the windows in good condition? These can all be forgotten in the heat of the moment. Make a checklist to take with you when viewing properties you really like.

      Very useful article! I think that the most important thing is to choose a professional property manager because he will help you a lot to find a home. The Las Vegas property management company I worked with helped me to find a great house at a fair price in a very short time.
