Personally I love the look of hardwood and if I did get hardwood I would only get the Brazilian Cherry because of the high quality and durability. However I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and since I'm Asian I use a lot of oil and am frying a lot of spices constantly. This makes me wonder if I should go for tile instead..it is so confusing! Is there anyway I can use HW for the kitchen and just cover the space beneath the stove and sink with area rugs for easy cleaning? Also does HW add better resale value for the home compared to tile? Pls help!!</div></div><br \><br \>31 replies Tue, 07 Aug 2012 21:47:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Kitchen-flooring-for-new-home-Hardwood-versus-Tile/454517/ 2012-08-07T21:47:00Z How can I locate a lender who would lend on undeveloped land? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-can-I-locate-a-lender-who-would-lend-on-undeveloped-land/519530/ Can make down payment of 25%.<br/><br/>Can work with 10 year loan<br/><br/>Can work with adjustable rate loan<br \><br \>5 replies Tue, 19 Nov 2013 22:13:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-can-I-locate-a-lender-who-would-lend-on-undeveloped-land/519530/ 2013-11-19T22:13:00Z I wish to begin a career in real estate investing, residential and eventually commercial.
