RoadFish.com released today it’s 7 tips to lower housing costs. It comes following Elin Nordegren’s action of leveling her newly purchased $12 million home.
Over the past week, Elin Nordegren had her $12 million Florida mansion leveled apparently to make room to build a new one. In early 2011, Elin reached a $100 million settlement agreement with Tiger Woods. Immediately after this she purchased a $12 million home that she has now demolished.
According to EPA.gov, “Buildings in the United States contribute 38.9 percent of the nation’s total carbon dioxide emissions, including 20.8 percent from the residential sector and 18.0 percent from the commercial sector (2008).”
The editor of RoadFish.com is quoted as saying, “In today’s world, where there is often not quite enough to go around and people are having trouble paying their bills to tear down a home like this just for fun seems like it might be a bit irresponsible. I mean, there might have been something serious like termites or a roof leak that made this necessary, but I’m just sayin’.“
The 7 tips released today at RoadFish.com include such things as buying when the market is low and selling when the market is high, living somewhere "ghetto", but cool, refinancing your mortgage, renting your home, and couch surfing in addition to other practical tips.
According to Carl Heldmann, nationally acclaimed author and home builder, it costs approximately $100 per square foot for labor and materials alone to build a home anywhere in the United States. Assuming Elin Nordegren decides to rebuild her home at approximately the same size it was which was 9,000 square feet then the cost to rebuild her home will be at least $900,000 dollars. The editor or RoadFish.com estimates that since her tastes seem so refined, Elin’s home will come out in excess of $2 million.
