The Jelly Belly Factory - Fairfield, CA   We all have those attractions we drive by hundreds of times but can never find the time to stop. The Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield California was one of those places ... until now. My only warning is, if you don't like feeling like a little kid in a candy store, don't go there. The tour is fascinating, you get to learn how it takes up to 20 days to make a batch of jelly bellies. During the tour you get to munch on free samples while you feast your eyes on trays and trays of brightly colored candy. The quality control is fierce, the rejects get packaged and sold as "belly flops". This company was made famous by then Governor Ronald Reagan, when he wrote to thank Jelly Belly for their candy. He wrote "we can hardly start a meeting or make a de...

(203kOnLine.com, covering the USA)
Once the project is funded and the work begins we have a process called the "Draw Process". Since the Full 203k loan program is a "reimbursement" program for the contractor, the contractors must get some work done with his own funds and wherewithal in order to get "reimbursed" from the loan. The loan closes, the contractor should be notified ASAP. There are many borrowers who might be disappointed unless properly schooled ahead of time but the contractor doesn't have to start on the job the next day. Sorry, that isn't a "must". What is more likely to happen will be that the contractor will assess their work load and, as an example, they might see that in a week or so they have a job winding down.  They are allowed to coordinate a smooth transition to this project. That doesn't mean they...

In the end, small changes to a home can help the environment and help a property stand out among the competition.  "It makes sense on a number of levels to incorporate green principles into a home and many consumers are surprised at just how easy it is to do so," said Nicole Monary, REALTOR® for Coldwell Banker...

GREEN VALLEY CA REAL ESTATE-HOMES FOR SALE--SIX INEXPENSIVE RENOVATIONS THAT CAN INCREASE A HOME'S VALUE AND APPEAL TO BUYERS Home value is top of mind for many homeowners.  Renovations and remodeling can play a critical role in both increasing the value of a home and ensuring that it stands out to potential buyers.  At a time when most consumers are looking to do more with less, few homeowners may be ready to commit the thousands of dollars it can take to fully redo even a single room.  I suggest the following six affordable home improvements for potentially increasing the overall value of a home: Reface Kitchen Cabinets. Kitchen updates are among the smartest remodeling projects when it comes to "upping" the resale value of a home. But homeowners do not need to spring for an entire ne...
