Ann Arbor unvented bathroom fan

I've been involved hundreds of home inspections over the years but
today I saw my first bathroom fan that did not vent outside.

It just recirculates air in the bathroom through a little filter.

Note there is no window in the bathroom!

This is a Guenther built.home on the South side.



Home Buying Lingo and Euphemsims

I was recently asked by someone starting the home buying process how to tell if a listing was a foreclosure from the description. Good question!

However our local Board of REALTORs doesn't have a specific flag or descriptor that signals a property is a foreclosure. But it is now done in some other boards and it may be coming.

For now, the best bet is to look for phrases in the description like these:

Bank Owned.

Listing office to hold EMD (Earnest Money Deposit)

Bank addendums required

Required seller documentation

Bank addendum overrides local contract

Our professional association published a report that details these phrases along with the "sister" of the foreclosure, the dreaded "short sale".

The report is available as a free pdf download here.



We miss Mysore Woodland But we sure enjoy Teriyaki Time!

Set directly between the Ann Arbor Community High School and the Ann
Arbor Farmer's Market is a little building that has had carry-out
restaurants for at least the last forty years.
When I was growing up in the area it was DeLong's BBQ Pit.
More recently it was a Indian vegetarian place called Mysore
Woodlands, where we would come by every month and enjoy Dali Masala.
This year it became Teriyaki Time and we've enjoyed a number of their entrees.
