How does a wooden floor hold up in a bathroom after a couple of years? I definitely like the way it looks, but with all the water and steam, you'd have to wonder... (I'm asking because over in Europe all you see is tiled up bathrooms)

Honestly I wouldn't think too well. The flooring was already there as it used to be two bathrooms. We took down the dividing wall and made the single master. I would assume you'd have to be real careful will spills and moisture. Then comes refinishing, etc.... With the immature wood products they have now I would have to go with some type of composite. Then again that flooring had been there for x amount of years and was still in great shape

Awesome. I am "in the business" too I have a few homes that I have bought as rental properties. I am hoping to expand on them...but I have been to busy with my m-f day job...and wife...and kids...and etc. etc. etc. Rents here are pretty good...$1200/month. I had bought these homes about 10 years ago for 75-80K. They are now appraised at 120K+. Since the energy boom, rents are going up very fast.

I have taken every vehicle I have ever owned (except F150...only 6000 miles so far) to Discount Tires. from Lexus, BMW, Tacoma, Tundra, ...whatever...I always buy the tire replacement warranty.
when I had my Lexus Gs4, I had 3 blow out with the Pirelli P4 tires (garbage weak sidewalls). Every time Discount Tires replaced them. One time on the freeway, i had a bad blow out. There was nothing left of the tire. I had it towed to the nearest Discount Tire and they replaced it even though there was only a rubber ring. Another time they had broke off studs and they replaced them. No questions asked. They are the best of the best. I go to the one in Sugar Land (I think they have 3 with in a 10 mile radius of my home). there are Bentley's, Aston Martin's, as well as plenty of BIG trucks that use that store.

And like the other guy said dealers don't really care to follow Tire & Rubber Manufacturers Association, or the Wheel and Tire Association Guidelines.

Tires are all we do so it's kinda important that we at least follow some kind of guidelines.

Just gotta take your time with vehicles like that and new guys aren't allowed to even look at that vehicle funny.

I had another Maserati come in a few months ago and he needed a flat repair, turns out his rim was cracked. So I called the nearest dealer to get a price quote for him and it was $2600 for the one rim. My store averages $800k a month I think we can take the hit on that rim if we were to damage of course someone would be in trouble lol.

Just put in an offer on this one as the next to be redone. Looks really dirty but 85% of it comes off with a little spit shine. No structural changes need to be made, no moving walls, adding doors, or adding rooms. Just a new HVAC, a real good cleaning, redo bathrooms, kitchen, and patio. Slap some new flooring and paint on that sucker, and we'll be golden. Hallway is the only room that still has flooring, everything else has new plywood sub flooring. The plot is almost 2 acres to so lots of space or a possible second residential unit near the back of the propert.

I was worried about the area as I didn't know it very well, but when I pulled up and a saw a nice '09-10 F150 in the neighbors driveway, I felt more comfortable!
