When it comes to home ownership...there are a TON of things that we all wish we knew about, prior to buying. For example...do LED Lights REALLY lower your electric bills? When should I change out the air filter for my A/C? ...and importantly...when should I start looking at things around my home to make sure that my house is in great shape for years to come? Since buying a home is the biggest investment you will ever make (in most cases)...it is so important to make sure you keep it in great shape. So we took some time to create a Home Maintenance Checklist to help you understand ALL the items YOU should be looking at and for, before a Home Inspector finds it later during a closing. If you have ANY questions whatsoever please feel free to reach us directly, 904-735-8666 and we will happily answer any questions you may have, and also put you in contact with one of our Trusted Inspection Professionals if needed!

Shifting Incomes for American JobsBY NATHAN YAU / POSTED TO DATA UNDERLOAD / TAGS: INCOME, JOBSWith some occupations, people make more annual income than others. Obvious. But we typically see figures in terms of means and medians when in reality, the difference between the person who makes the most and the one who makes the least can be significant.
The chart below shows the spread for major occupation groups, for several decades. Imagine you randomly select 50 people from each group, and this is what their annual income probably looks like.
The data for 2000 and earlier comes from the decennial census, and the data for 2010 and 2014 come from the American Community Survey.
As you progress through time, you’ll notice the distributions of income spread out more. This is especially obvious when you switch between 1960 and 2014. With the exception of lower paying jobs in areas such as food preparation and cleaning, it looks like there’s more opportunity to earn a higher salary (among those who have jobs at least).
That said, even if a job typically pays well, there are still people at the lower end of the bracket.
