Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Wed., July 3, 1974 ·' FAYETTEVILLE. ARKANSAS Home Repair Worth Big Profit By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeatures Writer A $600 face-lift on your house may get you an, additional $5,00 when you are ready to sell, ut some homes keep depr- ciatlng even though the mar- et stays up. advises former lectronics executive Robert ildham Forsyth of Ridgetield, Conn., who is now in the busi- ess of maintaining and restor- ng homes -- little and big. His estates management has ro'ught a new kind of house omfort to a lot of people since e has assumed the role of puse cosmetician. Most people eerh to be waiting for someone o undertake their house wor- ies, he says, and he .is trying o provide "an executive approach." y ' ' T , No clean-up, job 'is.'.tod small o intrigue him. '.-And .".every lome needs- one frequently to keep it"blemish-free he.insists. In fact what he "has-seen in hese last months has convinced him , that most people see their own homes through r o s e-colored (very ., dark) glasses. Others can't see those same houses through the litter. "People can't seem to see heir own homes, or smell them "or that matter. Sometimes I've een overwhelmed. But deterio- ·ation often becomes a way/of ife. They can't even remember low it was in the beginning." Many home owners risk the same fate when they rent, he observed. One restoration 1:6 is involved with is an example, he says. The owner thought he was renting to a "nice couple." But in a year's time eight hippies had destroyed his authentic Colonial home with its handsome old plasters, beautiful wall coverings and old flooring. REPAIRS POSTPONED Then, too, there are the homes of traveling men who must keep postponing essential chores, he points out. Forsyth has gotten a lot of calls from women ·"who plead "my husband is -away now, send a work crew." ; "Everybody must pick up slicks from the time he , assumes, ownership of a home. Day. after day a house deteriorates from normal usage and it must be constantly conditioned." He advises every homeowner to make occasionally a "deterioration check" of their house and grounds -- especialy if it las been rented -- and don't merely walk 1 around it. Look at each area with a view toward criticism. If you can't do it yourself, it would be profitable to hire someone who can, he says. His crew does everything from clearing brush, attics and green houses to painting, wa- covering and interior modi- green houses to painting, wall might dump a mouse-infested upholstered chair that has been in a 'garage or toolshed for a decade. In addition to the eyesores it creates, junk is a safety hazard, Forsyth emphasizes, and more than 99 per cent of it "should have been hi the dump long ago." but even then an owner might tell him, "if you want that (wormy) sofa for yourself, he my guest." Remarks like that have led Forsyth to conclude that junk removal may be one of the lomeowner's biggest problems People can't fathom how to relinquish or dispose of it. They just keep hoping it will go away by itself. They also tolerate oth er blights -- fireplace logs stacked without protection from ground mold . .. driveways go ing to the weeds . .. the wealh er side of the house going un painted. SERVICE GROWS There ..was such .a need for his.-services 'that/-lie : has .par layed 'his' one-truck,' two ; rhan operation into a four-truck, 15 helper and . managing-super visor deal in the last seven months. Twenty-five skilled workers -- plumbers, elec tricians, landscapers and the like -- are also on tap to A their thing. Forsyth makes tin estimates and .directs the as signments. There are variou lans including year-round sea- onal contracts. A handsome, outdoor vpe, Forsyth resigned as manger of production control of a arge electronics company he- ause he "became bored." He lecided to teach tennis, his fa- 'orlle game, and devoted some 10 hours a week to it before he nit on his present service. "I had found myself involved n needing services when I sold my own home. In discussing it vith friends, everyone felt here was a big need for that ind of service. They were ght." Tennis lessons are stilt part of leaching the game at Har- 'ard under the pro, Jack Barnaby, which has rated him accreditation. When he estab- ished his management service )fc took a course in real estate appreciation because he would never allow himself "to do something beyond my capac- ty." As his services have broad- ned, clients are making sure ned, clients are making suggestions, which have motivated iim to start a women's division o specialize in personal serv ces. They'll take a child to DIs- icyland. Europe or the local museum for a busy or vacalion- ng parent. "Every homeowner should bo able to call one service to fulfill lis household needs. The scrv- ce should aim to provide relia bility and dependability, which ire the keys to a successfu Business operation as I learnet n the electronics field. Wlij shouldn't the same guarantees extend to the household?" No Cash LONDON (AP) - The word spread quickly in the farming community of Kingbridge, ii Devon county, when Free Hughes of the King's Arms Ho tel jokingly accepted a lamb in payment for a bill. Another patron immediately settled his weekly bar bill witl a crate of eggs. Other offers o pigs, sheep and ·- vegetable) were quickly accepted. Hughes" says his biggest deal! so far is three bulls from farmer Lionel Forster, to pay the $960 bill for the wedding reception for Forster's daughter next month. "I have accepted everything that can be used by the hotel," said Hughes, "but I had to turn down a load of manure." Enforcement Of Park Laws Under Study HARRISON. Ark. (AP) -- Of [icials of the National Park Service are exploring twc methods of improving law en forcement capabilities in th park, Donald M. Spalding, su perintendent of the Buffalo Na tional River Park, said Mon day. He said it is not the intent o the park service to go act as "straight arm of the law. However, he said the service i charged with the protection the park area and the park' national resources.- One method of improvemen Spalding said, would be to see concurrent Igislation from th state legislature to a 11 o \ rangers to enforce b o t h slat and federal laws in the park. The other would be for she iffs to deputize rangers to allo the rangers to assist in appr hending law violators on pr vate property within the riv park's boundaries, he said.
