A Construction Joint Innovation Brought To You By The 9th Annual Katy Home & Garden Show

We all know that exposure to sun, rain and wind wreaks all types of havoc on a home, and after a few years the toll can be seen on the faade of the home. This aspect is no clearer than on your concrete driveway, which begins to appear disastrous once the concrete slabs have expanded and contracted continuously based on the weather patterns.

League City, TX. Mar, 2015. For decades now the whole country has been toying with several ideas on how to tackle the construction joint problem with no positive results to show. In fact, several companies of varying sizes have presented us with half-hearted attempts to combat this problem, often showcasing their work to homeowners who are left with limited choice. We have small businesses touting short-term wooden replacement joints, others proclaiming the wonders of expensive and messy caulk alternatives, and the rest of the pack cheering on the environmentally damaging weed killers. Each of these solutions is less viable than the other.

But now there is hope. From a small city in Houston a construction joint solution has arisen, offering big results for little money. Where once upon a time the only construction joint repair options were expensive or harmful, Trim-A-Slab has managed to give us an innovative solution with no drawbacks.

So what is Trim-A-Slab and why is it so great? The answer is quite simple, and here is how the business presented their solution at the Katy Home & Garden Show. This self leveling sealant that was thought up in Bob Wilkes League City backyard allows you to protect your real estate investment without breaking the bank. By placing the flexible PVC filler strips between your shifting slabs, you can prevent the cycle of heat and cold from destroying your concrete driveway. This amazing innovation comes in a range of sizes that can accommodate different slab placements, and all of the products on offer are guaranteed to withstand the elements for years to come.

Making The Grade Understanding Commercial Property Ratings

If you’re looking to start up a business in Sydney CBD, one of the greatest challenges is finding suitable office space. Unlike looking for a flat or home, your commercial real estate is critical to your business – location and appearances are everything; but how do you balance the best expensive costs of prime commercial with your operations budget?

Australia has a commercial property rating system that helps businesses determine which type of property is best suited for their needs. From the most expensive Grade A Sydney CBD locale, to Grade D bare bones facilities, find out what grades of commercial property are out there and what it all means for your business.

Which Grade of Commercial Property is best suited to your business needs?

Grade A: Grade A properties are prime locations in highly sought-after addresses. The properties will be in the heart of the financial or business districts and be relatively new or recently refurbished, with state-of-the-art fixtures and fittings. Rents in Grade A offices will naturally tend to be higher, catering to the executive classes of Fortune 500 companies. Traditionally, Grade A property tends to be leased or bought by banks, brokerage houses and high-profile law firms. Meanwhile, with the latest boom in the demand for sustainable and ecologically advanced premises, many of the newest “green” buildings tend to fall within the A Grade. Cities like Sydney always growing and Grade A property is now available in many outside of the immediate CBD to business districts in the City Fringe, including Surry Hills and Pyrmont.

Grade B: As Grade A property tends to be scarce and relatively pricey, the majority of businesses, especially newer ventures, will opt for Grade B office space. Grade B buildings will be less expensive but include all your standard amenities to make a good impression. Grade B offices tend to be a little bit away from the prime markets, but they could be on a main strip in a smaller city fringe suburb. Smaller law firms, independent investment consultants or doctors’ offices make great use of Grade B buildings. Many cities have Grade B office building clusters near airports or other transportation hubs, but away from the central “downtown” areas and business districts.

Grade C: Grade C properties are inexpensive, functional buildings. Furniture and fittings tend to be older and buildings are maintained to a lower standard than higher grade buildings. Grade C offices are best suited to call centres, small firms and start-ups and will tend to be older and located farther out of the central business districts. Don’t look for pretty lobbies or plush carpeting in Grade C buildings; these are about function over form.

Grade D: Grade D office space is the least expensive commercial property grade – and for good reason. Office space in Grade D buildings tends to cramped, furnishings and fixtures are relatively shabby. Most of the space in the facilities will be used for storage or manufacturing. Grade D buildings are well outside the standard business areas, often located in industrial parks. Grade D properties are suited for manufacturing or distribution companies that require large warehouse industrial real estate in Sydney or storage space as adjuncts to office space.

Meanwhile, some central CBD areas have gone beyond the traditional grading system. Some of the most exclusive property is now considered “Premium” property above Grade A. Look for these at prime locations with “Harbour Views” and exceptional quality.

Keep in mind that when you pick your commercial real estate, it’s more than just the grade that matters. Consider for example whether you need a store front. You can often go a grade up in your choices by downsizing your space requirements or looking outside the CBD to outer suburbs, such as the City Fringe.

Pune real estate development is booming like never before. Many Residential and Commercial projects have come up in recent years. The reason for Pune real estate development is due to many IT companies as well as MNCs and auto companies having set up their manufacturing as well as corporate offices in Pune. The Radius of real estate development in Pune has extended to areas like Hadapsar, Pashan, Sinhagad road, Aundh, Hinjewadi, Balewadi, Wakad etc., which were once considered as suburbs of Pune.

Economic City To Transform Medak District

Medak District is located in Andhra Pradesh, India. Sangareddy is the district headquarters of Medak. Minister for Major Industries J. Geeta Reddy recently claimed that the Medak district has witnessed multi-fold development. The Export Promotion Industrial Park in Medak District has an area of 300 acres, and the Garment Complex at Gundla Pochampally in Medak District has an area of 170 acres. The Nagarjuna Agricultural Reserach and Development Institute (NARDI) has a 107-acre research farm, situated at Wargal, Medak District, 50 km from Hyderabad on the Rajiv Gandhi Highway.

The proposal of Hyderabad Economic City (HEC) will transform Medak considerably. Ras Al Khaima Authority (RAKIA), and APIIC signed a memorandum of understanding in September last for the development of HEC with a proposed investment of Rs 20,000 crore. The Andhra Pradesh government recently allotted 471 acres of land at Sultanpur village of Medak district for the first phase of Hyderabad Economic city which is being jointly developed by APIIC and RAS-AL-KHAIMAH. RAK is the investment arm of the UAE government which had asked for a total of 2000 acres for the project. The balance land would be allotted in due course according to an APIIC official. It would be an integrated financial hub with infrastructure facilities for financial services operations for banking, insurance and asset management companies. The project would also have an integrated health city that would include facilities for clinical and non-clinical services, hospitals, and medical colleges, research services for clinical trials, drug delivery system, stem cell research and genetic research among other things, according to sources. This is the largest real estate and infrastructure project coming up in Andhra Pradesh and is expected to provide quality employment to thousands of people. RAKIA is a world renowned and much respected investment body that is cash rich. Executing a project of this magnitude is well within their capability. Residential areas adjacent to Sultanpur such as Ayilapur, Kistareddypet and patelgudem will be the most sought after destinations and are likely to appreciate in value considerably.

This project is a boon to Medak district which would assume great significance in terms of the infrastructure being provided and tremendous employment potential. Sultanpur is located abutting the outer ring road and is presently accessible from the Mumbai highway via the Beeramguda crossing which is two Km after BHEL. A three and half Km drive would bring you to Kistareddypet village. The limits of Sultanpur commence barely half a Km to the right of Kistareddypet which has already been witnessing real estate development in the form of gated communities, residential layouts and apartment complexes. Sultanpur is situated at a distance of 16 to 18 Km from important hubs such as hi-tech city area, Microsoft campus, financial district etc. The prestigious IIT Hyderabad campus is also coming up in Medak district around 20 Kms from Sultanpur.

To support the investments around Medak district, the government of Andhra Pradesh proactively took few measures on the Power Generation. Andhra Pradesh Power Generation Corp (APGENCO) has implemented the 2x 7..5 MW Singur hydel project at the head of Singur dam across river Manjira in Medak district. The project, estimated to cost Rs 405.8 Million was financed by the governments of AP and Karnataka as well as funds from power finance Corp (Rs. 160 million). BHEL supplied the turbines and Generators. The first 7.5 MW unit was commissioned in December 1999 while the second unit was commissioned in January 2000.

Tips On Showing Your Home To Potential Buyers

After youve primped and prettified your home for the purpose of making it look more attractive to potential buyers, the next logical step you will have to take is to actually make these buyers feel welcome in your abode.

Whether or not youre selling your home on your own or through the assistance of real estate agents, the basic tips for successful home showing remain the same.

The first is that you should always be ready to show your home to potential buyers. Naturally this does not mean that you should entertain guests who come knocking in the middle of the night. It simply means that you should be flexible with your availability. Always be ready to show off your home and greet your guests with a smile even if your guest comes in 15 minutes early or 15 minutes late. Dont worry; clients who know that they are running a bit late usually call to advise you.

Unless youre selling your home by yourself, it is also ideal if you discreetly remove yourself from the premises when the agents are showing off your property. Although it is understandable that you would want to see the reaction of the buyer, buyers may feel uncomfortable when youre around. They many not be able to ask the agent questions about your home, nor feel free to open doors, windows, even lights. If youre doing the selling, you may open and close doors yourself and naturally, answer their questions. However, try to keep your distance. Give your guests privacy and let them explore the place on their own.

As a home seller, it is also important that you remain slightly impersonal in your dealings with clients. This does not mean that you would act like a robot to your guests. It simply means that you should avoid bringing up your opinion on controversial topics such as religion or politics.

It is also advisable that you keep your pets away from the guests as they may be frightened by your friendly Labrador or may find the distinct animal aroma your pet emits offending.

Finally, for your own safety, try to know as much about the potential buyer before you allow them inside your home. You can verify the details they have provided (phone number, email, etc), by making a return call or sending them an electronic message. It is also ideal if you could have another person on site when you are showing off your home. If this is not possible then make your guests enter the home (and the interior rooms) first and situate yourself by the door at all times. This way, you can easily run off if something goes wrong.

The Upcoming Property Market Of Ranchi

Ranchi is the capital of a decade old state, Jharkhand. Jharkhand is known worldwide for housing first private Iron and Steel Company of India, Tata Steel. The most industrialized cities of the state include Jamshedpur, Bokaro and Ranchi and so, they attract a lot of migrant population from various regions. This migration has cultivated growth of real estate in Jharkhand.

Ranchi, being the capital city, is witnessing huge growth in its real estate sector with high investments pumping in. Real estate in Ranchi is soaring high with property prices growing almost five times in last five years. The investments by real estate developers and land owners are already bearing fruits with reaping of such great returns. Depending on locality, the rates of property, today, varies from Rs. 1,200- 1,700 per square foot in comparison to Rs. 400-500 per square foot five years ago. The hike in prices is proving expensive for locals but government is taking steps to ensure that they do not face the brunt of these developments.

Jharkhand State Housing Board is planning to develop various residential and commercial space establishments jointly with private builders of the area. The construction of various multi-storied apartments and commercial complexes is in pipeline across the state with Ranchi alone in possession of 19 plots. Since, government plans to develop Ranchi real estate in collaboration with private players like Parsvnath Builders, huge investments in this sector can be foreseen. The most interesting feature of the city is its natural beauty full of surging hills, little streams, calm lakes and brooks that together form a picturesque sight. It has retained its traditional touch in spite of moving towards modernity swiftly with large number of developments taking place. Beautiful waterfalls and rich tribal culture are among its other major attractions.

The tremendous growth in Ranchi has led to a boom in retail sector as well with leading retailers such as Reliance Fresh, Big Bazaar, Spencer, etc. opening up their outlets. Malls, five-star hotels and multiplexes are also under construction indicating the growth rate of hospitality sector. There is also a proposal for industrial expansion on 350 acres of land along with setting up of SEZs, educational institutions and healthcare facilities. The growth in IT industry and tourism activities has high potential for bringing in the economic boost in the city.

The vision set for Ranchi is to make it a model capital city and 6Rs (of Redevelopment, Rejuvenation, Rehabilitation, Restoration and Preservation, Restructuring and Reforms) have been set in this line. The population of the city is expected to reach 15 lakhs by next year and the government seems to be all geared up to word towards making Ranchi a symbol of progressive Jharkhand. It has come up with a City Development Plan (CDP) that identifies land for new sub cities which would require 6400 hectares of land in order to accommodate growth till 2021. In addition to this, strengthening of management systems for urban planning, disaster mitigation, environmental management and management area also needs attention according to CDP. The government is also focusing on improving other amenities related to water supply, sewerage and sanitation, solid waste management, storm water drainage and urban transport. It is also chalking out plans for heritage conservation and tourism development, disaster management, effective urban governance, basic services to the urban poor, sustainability of investments and various other important issues.

With such commercialization of the city and improving living standards, Ranchi is gaining its position as a lucrative investment option. The positive push to both residential and commercial sectors has largely benefited the real estate of Ranchi.

Real Estate and Private Sector Signs Regulation, and Outdoor Sign Permits

Are Real Estate Signs Allowed in State Highways?

It will depend on the state you’re in, or how strict the enforcement of bootleg laws are.

Directional signs are used along the highway directing traffic to an event, sale, or home for sale, and are often called “bootleg” signs, because they’re typically considered illegal (the name comes from the Prohibition Era of the US’ history when “bootlegged” liquor was sold across the US by illegal producers.

So, technically, these are illegal signs, although the name is now more associated with the genre of sign than whether or not they’re actually legal or not.

The thought behind the use of these signs is that state employees are not working on weekends and are likely not going to do anything about these illegal signs which are gone by Monday morning when they drive to work. Out of sight, out of mind.

I have not heard of anyone having any issues with using bootleg signs, but I only know that in our area, they’re not illegal anyway, so you can put them out whenever as long as you’re not on the county or city or state right of way. And even then, people do it and the signs seem to be there for a long time, so I don’t think in our area there’s much enforcement.

Is a Sign Permit Required to Advertise Outdoors?

That depends on what type of outdoor advertising you’re doing. Typically, if a sign is temporary, like a banner or small bootleg sign, no permit or license is needed, at least not in most areas. You’ll want to check with your local sign police, er, I mean county or municipal building department to learn what your local code requires.

Now, if you’re going to plant a billboard or a permanent business sign, then you’re going to want to contact a reputable local sign company and get these answers because these companies are the ones that deal directly with the county and city and state building departments and so they’re going to know where to find the information you need regarding your sign or other outdoor advertising.

Who Pays for those Signs Owned by Private Businesses?

One sure thing is that the Government won’t pay for signs owned by most private business owners. If they did, there would be a plethora of signs on the highway, and it would be a mess and the government would go more into the hole than it already is.

There is an application process that you would need to go through with the state where you want your sign, and they only allow certain types of businesses to advertise on these signs, typically.

The types of businesses are those that provide traveler services such as fuel stations, restaurants, and the like. So, unless your business is of this type, first, you’ll not be able to advertise on any Highway or Interstate signs, and if you are able to, you’ll pay for the sign. In my experience, the pricing is generally reasonable and most good sign shops can make the sign for you if they follow the state or federal specs for the signs.
