Changing Seasons: Get Your Home Ready for Cold Weather

The cold weather is quickly approaching, and we know you are excited for cozy nights at home with your family. However, before you kick back and relax, there are certain things you should do to prepare your home for these upcoming colder months. Take a look at the list below.

Remove Debris from Gutters

From leaves to sticks and dirt, your gutters can fill up quickly especially during the autumn months. You should prioritize cleaning out your gutters and inspect for any problems that may prevent your home drainage system from operating efficiently.

Clean Fireplace

Before using your fireplace, have it professionally cleaned along with the chimney. By doing this early in the autumn months, it will allow a professional to identify and repair any problems before you are ready to use it for the colder months. A clean, well-maintained fireplace and chimney will help keep you and your family cozy while operating safely and efficiently.

Check Doors and Windows

Don’t let the warm air in your home escape through easily repaired broken seals around doors or windows. You should check all windows and doors throughout your home to see if there are any drafts and repair as needed. If you do have warm air escaping, it will cost you additional money throughout the winter. Save money and stay warmer by addressing those problems before it really gets cold.

Quick Tips to Stage Your Home for Real Estate Photos

Homes for Sale in Suffolk VAThere are so many steps that go into selling a home, including staging it for potential buyers. When you stage a home, you are making it easier for people to visualize their own belongings in this house. Every room is staged differently, so we have provided some tips for staging the living area in your home.

Remove Personal Photos

You should remove all family photos from this room because it is harder for potential buyers to see themselves living there.

Open Blinds

Natural light always makes a room feel bigger than it is, and people love to see how much natural light a room will get. You do not have to keep the blinds open all the time, but when you know someone is coming over to take photos or show your home, you should always let the natural light shine in.

Showcase Any Features

If you have any special features in the living room like a fireplace, bookshelf, or big windows, you need to highlight the feature by arranging the furniture.
