Total Cost of Ownership of a Home



Click Here to Play This Episode of The Green Gab Podcast Now!When buying or renting a home, the way we look at the associated costs may be misleading. Rarely are all of the expenses of buying or renting AND operating a home taken into consideration. This total cost of ownership is what really should be considered and Kerry Langley with Project TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) has a tool to change that.

Project TCO is a program to help get a more accurate picture of what the true costs of a home will be, especially when building or buying a home. Typically, mortgage associated expenses are where most of the effort is spent – interest, closing costs and fees, insurance. Rarely included in the buying process are the rest of the expenses of owning and operating a home – utilities (natural gas, electricity, water, sewer, trash, communications/cable), maintenance and repairs. It is this total cost of owning a home that truly allows buyers to compare the costs of homes.

Independence Day (1996) – A Perspective Review



Have aliens visited Earth? This question has always been an intriguing one. From the first “contact” we may have had in 1947, the the various incidents reporting inside of The Air Force’s “Project Blue Book” to any one of hundreds of documentaries you can find streaming online today – the question “have we been visited” is alive and well. In 1996, Hollywood, and the makers of “STARGATE” gave us a very special feature film that allowed us to dig even further into that question.

It was called “Independence Day” and it was glorious. From the bursting-at-the-seams casting to the ground-breaking and still delightful special effects to impeccably placed humor, we haven’t really been given something as special as Independence Day in a long time. It’s time for you to check out what 2GuysTalking thought of a truly “close encounter” that all of us had, and still remember here on The 2GuysTalking Podcast Network as we dig into The Perspective Review of “Independence Day, 1996, directed by Roland Emmerich.

Mystic River (2003) – A Perspective Review



The Law. The city of Boston. Crime, and the process of solving it. The value of a Perspective Review via 2GuysTalking, is being able to examine a movie, long after it’s been done at the theater and even after home availability on DVD and Blu-ray as well as electronic downloads arrive and disappear. Tonite, the 2GuysTalking Podcast plows through a literal trifecta, where a new podcast launches, another Perspective Review is established, and a new mini-series gets a wondrous watery start. It’s time for The Perspective Review of Mystic River, (2003), directed by Clint Eastwood, here on The 2GuysTalking Podcast Network.
