How can I get builder and warranty company to repair new home?

Q: I recently closed on the new home I purchased pre-construction from a builder. The house has problems, and I am getting nowhere with the warranty company. To make things worse, the issues I reported at my walk-through have still not been fixed. What can I do to get them to fix these discrepancies?

A: Buying a new home from a builder can be a great experience, but there are also some challenges.

Pre-construction contracts are very one-sided for the developer and are challenging to negotiate. The trade-off is that your new home is customized to your tastes.

Building a home is not an easy task, and there can be repairs that are needed right from the start.

Most contracts also allow the developer to substitute chosen materials for something similar and allow for some variation of the design and floor plan you selected. You will get a new home substantially similar to the plans you signed off on, but it will not be an exact match.

This does not mean that your developer can sell you a lemon. The developer will need to make repairs for issues found on the walk-through and found soon after

Ghost Kitchen Company Pounces on Downtown Space Where Food Hall Folded

The 10,500-square-foot Wells Street Market space has been vacant since September, and what was once an alluring downtown spot isn’t so attractive during COVID-19. But four months later, Kitchen United, a California-based ghost kitchen company has announced it will take over the space at 222 N. Wells Street. The company, which entered the Chicago market in late 2019 with a River North location, hasn’t revealed when the Loop location will debut.

Ghost kitchens are coming to the former Wells Street Market space.

This move will expand Kitchen United’s delivery footprint, bringing more of its brands to Downtown Chicago. The new location will follow a similar design as the company’s first Chicago ghost kitchen at 831 N. Sedgwick with a few key differences, according to a rep. The space will eventually serve as a de facto food hall when it unveils indoor and outdoor seating, something absent from the Sedgwick location. It’ll contain 10 kitchen spaces with a central order and pickup area in the middle.

Both outposts will operate allow customers to get food from multiple restaurants in one orders, paying for it all with one bill. It’s a similar approach to that seen at

Shaler Area agrees to sale of former elementary school to real estate company; township believed it was buyer

Shaler commissioners were blindsided this week by the announcement that Shaler Area School District reached an agreement to sell the former Jeffery Primary building.

The township believed it had a verbal agreement for the acquisition, Manager Tim Rogers said.

“The district never advised us that they had retracted the offer to monetize the sale of the property,” Rogers said. “We are of course disappointed with the decision of the school board.”

The vacant elementary school building along Wetzel Road was offered for sale by the district to Shaler for $120,000, Rogers said.

The 31,500-square-foot school sits directly across from the municipal building and Kiwanis Park, making it an obvious extension to the complex, he added.

Bethany Baker, district communications specialist, said the district did not have a signed purchase and sale agreement with Shaler Township.

The sale to ANG Real Estate was approved by the school board on Dec. 9 for $499,000. Final approval is subject to review by the district solicitor.

Representatives from ANG Real Estate were not immediately able to be reached for comment.

Superintendent Sean Aiken said the

Is Amazon Becoming a Real Estate Company?

Amazon Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is one of the largest publicly traded companies in the world and has become a household name for consumers across the globe. After acquiring Wholefoods in 2017; introducing Amazon Prime, which includes Amazon originals, Amazon Kindle, Audible, and cloud services; and beyond, there are very few industries this company hasn’t taken over. Despite its broad presence, Amazon hasn’t made a huge leap into real estate; rather, it generally leases the majority of the retail, data centers, office space, warehouse, distribution, and fulfillment centers necessary to run its behemoth business operations.

They’re a giant tenant, not a giant property owner

According to the company’s 2019 annual report, Amazon leased slightly over 318 million square feet, making up 95{ac967ad544075fb2f6bcea1234f8d91da186cac15e616dc329e302b7c7326b8c} of its real estate activity and owned just 15 million square feet, a mere 5{ac967ad544075fb2f6bcea1234f8d91da186cac15e616dc329e302b7c7326b8c} of its total portfolio. But a recent development by SunCap Property Group for a 278,000-square- foot distribution center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that is supposedly being built for Amazon is making investors wonder if Amazon is transitioning into becoming a real estate company.

As of Q3 2020, Amazon spent $48.5 million in long-term lease liabilities. Reducing its lease obligations by owning real estate undoubtedly

Pandemic Pivot: Vending and catering company launches ghost kitchen

Torpedoes Sub Shop is slated to be the latest of several restaurant concepts Trolley Eats will offer when the sub shop goes live in mid-January. The ghost kitchen, which launched in December, plans to add more concepts to its lineup in the future. (Images courtesy of Trolley Eats)

As all three wings of its business have been getting shellacked by the coronavirus pandemic, a local vending company is looking to the ghost kitchen concept to ride out the storm.

Trolley House Refreshments, which provides breakroom and vending refreshments for workplaces, launched Trolley Eats in mid-December. Trolley Eats operates a handful of restaurant concepts without a physical dining space, a relatively new culinary concept known as a ghost kitchen. The model relies strictly on delivery service, and it has become increasingly popular in the Richmond area in recent months.

Trolley House owners Scott Halloran and Michael Calkins hit on the ghost kitchen idea to create a new revenue stream tailor-made for times that are less friendly to their other ventures. Trolley House also owns and operates catering company Groovin’ Gourmets and Parterre Restaurant at The Linden Row Inn downtown.

“We’re kind of in the bull’s eye of COVID across

Go Clean Co Cleaning Tips From The Company That’s All Over Instagram

Sarah McAllister, founder of Calgary's Co Clean co

“My level of clean is a little bit… different,” says Sarah McAllister, laughing into the phone. That is to say it’s spotless, thorough and—as the Go Clean Co founder’s 1.5 million Instagram followers would attest—totally enthralling.

Though McAllister’s Calgary-based residential cleaning business is only two years old, she’s quickly amassed an online #cleaningarmy of fans that spans Canada and the U.S. Much of that growth came when we all suddenly found ourselves locked down at home with little to do and a newfound appreciation for bleach. McAllister’s deep-cleaning tutorials and tips offer a way to keep busy (or, at the very least, soothed by the seeming ease with which she can transform the crustiest sink or grungiest floor).

Best of all, her hacks actually work, as proven by her followers who regularly share their own transformations. And you don’t need pricey professional supplies—so, if your local store is sold out of powdered Tide, you can blame McAllister (more on that in a second).

With a long winter ahead, we asked McAllister for her very best cleaning tips (spoiler alert: I tried them out and I’m completely hooked.) From how to tackle the (surprising) filthiest spot in most homes to her
