Looking to buy my first home theater system. Seems most systems come with a DVD/CD player. Thing is, I already have a Sony DVP-NS975P DVD player which I am more than happy with. The DVD player has HDMI output and I would also like to run my Xbox 360 (HDMI) through the receiver. Any recommendations in the sub-$1000 range?
Kitchen and bathroom remodeling. First time homeowner wanting to bring my kitchen and bathroom up to date. Never hired a contractor, nor do I have any recommendations from friends or neighbors. I own a duplex and did all of the simple work on the upstairs unit, but the lower unit that I occupy will be needing work that is out of my skill range (most likely a teardown to the studs and building up from there). I have some ideas on what I want done. I'd like to work with someone that can keep the project within what the neighborhood resale value can sustain and offer advice and refine my ideas. So how do I go about finding this person? I'm in Milwaukee.
Are terraces (the portion of the lawn between a sidewalk in front of a home and the street) owned by the home owner or the city? I live in Milwaukee and I recall my dad once saying that it is public property.
Bought a Milwaukee home that was built in the mid 1930's. What are my bathroom floors made out of?
Buying a home without a realtor. My landlord wants to sell the place I am living in (he lives in the lower, me the upper) because he is using the money to buy a business. He wants to sell quickly as the business loan is contingent on his sale of the home. The only catch is that he wants to forgo using a realtor by using an attorney instead. Has anyone here ever bought a home this way? What are the advantages/disadvantages on my end? Any common mistakes to avoid?
