House Building Costs

In all of this cost of building houses of laminated veneer lumber is 50% higher than the cost of building a dry profiled bar. Again, the use of dry details of a guarantee of high bearing capacity of the structure. The low percentage of humidity is a guarantee slight shrinkage of the house, and the quality of timber processing and absence of cracks affect the aesthetic characteristics of future housing. The basic operational and aesthetic characteristics of laminated veneer lumber is given by parameters as the number of splices in length, the adhesive composition, quality and number of lamellas (sawn vertically arranged parts of the trunk), hygroscopicity (the presence of excess moisture in the wood). Wood, humidity less than 18%, if not treated in a special way, is beginning to gain moisture from the environment, dry shaped beam on the gathering and does not give moisture, thus providing less time "getting used to the conditions environment. Experts recommend using laminated board, the joint maximum of two or three lamellae. Technologically easier to produce, dry and glue the thin slats, rather than fat, so domestic companies mostly produce them out of thin material, and he is considered low-grade. In addition, the number of splices is not regulated.

For this reason, very often the house, built from laminated veneer lumber Russian production, it looks spotty, since the paint softwood has sharp transitions from light yellow to orange and vice versa, and bonding and splicing of a large number of parts in one log (more than three up to six) makes a colorful timber. It should be noted that the bonding can be done on the basis of three kinds of adhesives: pu (polyurethane), pva (polyvinyl acetate) or muf. We note that our manufacturers are not testing the strength of gluing, guided only by their own attitudes, in contrast to the Finnish manufacturers. Finnish manufacturers use special regulations on which the adhesive strength of the structures determined by strict Standard: Mark J on the standard sfs, the relevant European en 1940 and prEN 385. And another important point – environmental requirements for adhesive joints.

Under the existing classification they fall into dangerous, unfit for residential use (marked as FC2), a potentially dangerous (FC1) and is completely safe (FC0). In adhesives safe class average formaldehyde content should be less than 0.5 mg / liter. According to the method jas maff, considered normal formaldehyde content of substances in the wood no more than (FC0) 0,2-0,3 mg / liter. It is not hard to guess that the better characteristics of the adhesive and it is safer than the higher its price. Using the construction of dry-profiled bar removes a lot of questions and doubts. The composition of the array is homogeneous, there is no need to doubt what's inside. Clay in the production is not used, but it's 100% ecological purity of the finished product. Also, do not need wary of posting elements that often occur with poor laminated veneer lumber. Price of dry profiled bar with all of this is almost 2 times lower than the price laminated veneer lumber. Currently, more and more developers, including professional builders prefer it to this material. "Price – quality is optimal. Home from the dry profiled bar is very modern, they look great, well hold variations in temperature, which is very important for the regions of central Russia.

Real Estate Agencies

How many articles have been written about the crisis and falling real estate prices, but I was curious about how the crisis will affect the real estate agencies, will increase if the demand for private realtors. And anyway – what are the prospects development of real estate business. Just want to warn that the figures that will be mentioned here, are not supported by any research and this is just my personal feelings. So let's begin. What will happen to the agent after end of the financial crisis is not difficult to foresee: the number of agencies will be reduced, major real estate agency will gradually eat the smaller ones, are under severe crisis conditions will survive all complicated. There will also be widely spread sale of franchises, using that medium-sized agencies will increase their presence in the market.

If the fall of the situation with property prices are not stabilized, the percentage of 25-30% of real estate agencies do not break down and cease to exist. Part of experienced Realtors joins the ranks of private brokers, will join the other part to the large agencies. Already we can see how very large real estate agencies, such as "Miel" and "Best", reducing their offices, trying to cut costs somehow retain their brands. The agency "Mian" generally goes to the regional market. Of the five largest real estate agencies in Moscow will be able to survive the crisis, probably only a few, which include "MIC Property and Inkom. During the crisis will increase the number of private realtors, I think that the number of transactions, conducted by private realtors reach 25-30% of the total.

But even among private realtors do not everyone can pass the test of crisis. Someone generally leaves the profession, someone will join a real estate agency, but those who can withstand the severe conditions of crisis, after it will just rest on our laurels, fighting from customers wishing to use their services. Outcome. Over the next few months to reduce their activities several large and many medium and small real estate agencies. Survive only real estate agency, which in its arsenal are all kinds of services: rent, suburban, commercial, overseas and residential property new buildings plus the professional and cohesive team, leadership and technology literate work in the real estate market.
