More Sunroom Customers Over Past Six Months Choose To Match Roofing of Home, Says President of Venetian Builders, Inc., Citing Better Economy, Low Interest Rates


MIAMI, FL (PRWEB) February 22, 2013

More people who expand their homes with aluminum sunroom additions have been choosing to match roof materials to those on the original home, said Christopher Noe, president of Venetian Builders, Inc., Miami, commenting on a trend hes seen develop over the past six months.

Sunrooms can stand safely and weather tight with just their insulated roofing panels, Noe said. Many homeowners go that route simply because its the most affordable way to get all-season square footage. But increasingly, especially over the past half-year, buyers of sunroom installations are asking us to match the roofing on their home.

The advantage of matched roofing is purely aesthetic, Noe said.

Go to a gallery of quality sunrooms and youll see that if a roofline is continued over the sunroom, matching roof materials makes the end result appear as one unit, not an addition, Noe said. If the roofline is separate, matching the clay tiles or other roofing materials still makes the sunroom look like it belongs.

What Noe expects to see is a decision by more patio room customers, not just sunroom buyers, to match roofing materials.

The buyer of, say, a Miramar patio enclosure typically has a lower budget than the buyer of a Boca Raton sunroom, Noe said. But with the advances in insulated all-weather patio enclosures, homeowners are discovering that adding enclosed patio room living space is affordable, and they have money left in their budget for roof matching.

Citing reports from census.gov, Noe notes that Americans moved more in 2012 than in 2011, but still at historically low rates. The longer stays are combining with improving real estate markets to increase equity.

To get the space they need, homeowners are adding on, Noe said. Its cheaper than buying a bigger house and paying closing costs and moving charges.

The time from permitting to occupancy on an aluminum-frame addition is shorter than for traditional construction methods, Noe said, adding convenience.

Low interest rates make additions more affordable, he said. Bankrate.com recently reported the average rate for a home-equity line of credit was 5.03 percent.

Go to an online loan payment calculator such as ihsloans.com and youll see that a $ 25,000 loan would cost just over $ 265 a month with a 10-year payoff, Noe said. Thats doable for many homeowners who have been in their homes a while and built up equity.

Tembo Gold: The Deeper They Go, The Better it Gets

(PRWEB) January 29, 2013

Shares of Canadian-based junior explorer, Tembo Gold Corp., jumped last week on news of the first deep-drilling results at its wholly-owned Tembo Property in the Lake Victoria Goldfield in Tanzania. -Financial Press

The results appear to validate Tembo Golds geological game plan and establish the Companys path towards completing an initial NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate later in 2013.

While senior management is cautious about prestating any resource estimate, industry watchers say that even a conservative guess that Tembo Gold has the potential to become the newest multi-million ounce gold deposit in East Africa.

Such a prospect would quickly bring potential buyers knocking at Tembo Golds door. A multi-million once discovery like this would not be the first time that a junior explorer has hit the jackpot in Tanzania. The Lake Victoria Greenstone belt is already home to over 40 million ounces of high-grade gold reserves and several world-class mining operations. With most if not all of the land in the Greenstone belt held by large mining companies, Tembo Golds property, which consists of 100km2 that borders a large-scale producing mine operated by one of the world’s biggest gold companies, seems to have the right address.

This neighboring gold mine is the largest operating in the Lake Victoria Greenstone belt and is African Barrick Golds Bulyanhulu Mine. It produces 260,000 ounces of gold a year from reserves estimated at more than 13 million ounces. The history of Bulyanhulu will resonate with many investors. Once operated by Placer Dome, the property was acquired in the 1990s by ex-Placer Dome management in a junior exploration company called Sutton Resources. Over the next several years, approximately 8.5 million ounces of gold were discovered until, in 1999, Barrick made an offer that Sutton couldnt refuse. Barrick then grew the gold resource to over 17 million ounces in less than 18 months via an aggressive exploration program.

Tembo Gold’s President and CEO, David Scott, is himself a former Barrick veteran with many years experience working in Tanzania that gives him intimate knowledge and understanding of Bulyanhulus structure and geology. Likewise, Tembo Gold Chairman David Anthony is the former Chief Operating Officer of African Barrick, where he was responsible for the construction and operation of several of its mining operations including Bulyanhulu. Scott’s and Anthony’s conviction that Bulyanhulus rich mineral seams extend far and deep into Tembo Golds property has been the inspiration behind the junior companys exploration program. I always looked over the border to the Tembo property and was certain that the Bulyanhulu structure continued there. This conviction is why when the opportunity to run Tembo came up I was very excited, says Scott.

Scott told the Engineering and Mining Journal in December 2012: Tanzania is still under explored, even for gold, which has received the most exploration. Some say that the exploration industry in Tanzania is mature, but the history of any goldfield shows that people continue to make important discoveries 100 years after everything was thought to have been found.

One of the first things to attract the attention of Tembo Golds managements to the property was the large number of local villagers that have been actively mining the area with artisanal techniques for decades. There are currently more than 2,000 artisanal miners working in more than 100 adits or shafts down to depths of approximately 30-50m where they meet the water table. With only limited capital and rudimentary technology, local miners mine grades of 5 to 58 g/t of gold, worth millions of dollars per year. This mining has, over decades, left a trail of up to 2,800 shallow pits and shafts across Tembo Golds property. These local miners’ workings provide Tembo’s geologists with a wealth of information about the underlying gold-bearing structures that they have been able to utilize to identify and prioritize drill targets.

Combining the knowledge obtained from the extensive underground artisanal workings with modern exploration techniques such as ground geophysics, LIDAR surveys and airborne geophysics led Tembo Gold to identify several high priority targets that are being tested in the first phase of an 87,000m drill program. Tembo performed a total of 35,000m of drilling in 2012. Even though the spaces between the holes was relatively wide, often a few hundred meters apart, this exploration methodology had an astonishing 93% success rate with the company intersecting gold mineralization in 53 of 57 diamond drill holes completed to date, with grades as high as 200g/t gold, although typically within the 5 to 25 grams per ton range.

One of the largest hurdles that exploration companies face in Africa is access to infrastructure, such as the existence of paved roads, electricity and water services, and airports. Such infrastructure costs hundreds of millions dollars to develop and this cost is one reason why many discoveries never make it into production. However, for Tembo this infrastructure already exists as it has already been developed for the Bulyanhulu mine next door. There was limited infrastructure in place before the arrival of Barrick. A lot has been built by or for Barrick Gold and now there is power and water supply,” said Scott upon landing at Bulyanhulu on a recent analyst trip to the Tembo Property.

So the scenario in which Tembo Gold finds itself is that it is a junior gold explorer operating in a known gold-producing region within earshot of one of the world’s largest gold producers that is exploiting a 13-million ounce gold reserve, , and it is now releasing drill results showing extremely high-grade mineralization over mineable widths.

Last week Tembo announced initial deep drilling results from its 2012 drill program. The first deep hole drilled at the Ngula 1 target returned 22.81 grams per tonne gold over 15 metres from a depth of 299 metres, including 34.78 g/t over 9.7 metres from a depth of 302.3 metres, and 205 g/t over one metre. These results support the Companys geological hypothesis that gold grades improve with depth, as they do at Bulyanhulu.

Tembo performed a total of 35,000m of drilling in 2012. Even as the spaces between the holes were still relatively wide and often a few hundred meters apart, more than 90% of all drill holes intersected gold. Some drill holes intersected over 90 g/t of gold content. Regular findings were within the 5 to 25 grams per ton range.

Given the robust nature of the structures hosting the mineralization, and these results, our expectation and confidence of discovering multiple parallel laterally and vertically extensive zones of high-grade gold mineralization at depth has increased, said Scott, We eagerly anticipate the 2013 drilling program that will be designed to delineate resources and extend the depth and strike of high-grade mineralization at Ngula 1. he added.

The 2013 exploration campaign consists of in-fill drilling of the shallow zones, with drill spacing on average of approximately 50-metres to improve the company’s understanding and interpretation of the geological structures and to define the gold distribution with a view to modeling a shallow open pit resource potential. Deep drilling is also planned across to cover the 600-metre strike length and to a depth of 300 to 500 meters.

The grades we are seeing are very significant for us. Assuming these grades and widths continue at depth, we are going to be able to add gold ounces quickly to our resource model. We are excited about what 2013 holds for us and look forward to announcing more drill results later this year, said Marc Cernovitch, Tembo’s Vice-president of Business Development.

Cernovitch also noted that: We have been very successful at raising capital as there is a lot of interest in seeing this project drilled

Short Selling North Hills Real Estate may be a Better Option than Loan Modifications


(PRWEB) November 06, 2012

Due to economic downturn as well as a fall in real estate values, countless homeowners who have invested in North Hills Real Estate have bought premium properties at extreme prices and they are now going through financial adversity. The value of their properties have decreased drastically in relations to the total mortgage due on the property. As a result, many people who have lost their lucrative jobs started to consider selling the property to avoid huge mortgage payments. However, most buyers are not ready to invest a huge amount in to the North Hills homes for sale, given the decrease in the value of the real estate as a whole. The situation worsens when property owners have to face foreclosure. Red Blue Realty, with the help of their reputed North Hills Real Estate Agents, gives valuable insights to North Hills homeowners on avoiding foreclosure as well as loan modification by setting up a short sale.

Keep Credit Score in Mind

The current scenario of North Hills Real Estate homeowners who are underwater on their mortgage warrants the need for short selling the property rather than opting for foreclosure. Homeowners may try a loan modification although statistically speaking, the majority of loan modifications do not work out for homeowners. Aside from having the loan forgiven at the settlement price, one of the most important advantages of short selling a home is that the credit score is not affected as badly as in the foreclosure process. Rather then wasting time with a loan modification and risking foreclosure, speak to a North Hills real estate agent about short selling a property.

Less Time to Buy a New Home

For those people who want to short sell their North Hills properties and settle in a comparatively small city with a rather moderate living cost, it is important that they short sell their homes and get a fresh loan for a house that is little smaller and in a small town after sufficient time has gone by. A foreclosure makes it more difficult for a person to get a fresh loan, due to the bad credit score. If a person goes for a loan modification, it is difficult to get out of the rut of paying for the property, which is far lower in value than the mortgage payment. In most cases, a loan modification provided to the homeowner will not renew the initial loan balance, but rather change things like the loan repayment date, or interest rate.

Avoid Selling Expenses

When a person considers short selling over foreclosure, a homeowner can avoid selling expenses such as title insurance, attorney fees, agent commissions etc. In case of a foreclosure, these expenses may fall on the seller as well in the form of a 1099 from the lender holding the account.
