What a difference a day makes or in this case a week makes. Just last week it was high 70’s weather, at least in Northern Nevada, and now there is snow on the mountains and upper elevations. Even the valleys are freezing.

At this time of year you should have  your hoses disconnected and sprinklers drained and weatherized.  If you have a swamp cooler it is a good idea to cover it and block the cold air from coming in.  Even if you are a tenant and do not own your home, keep in mind that many leases hold you responsible to weatherize your rental unit.  Be sure to check your lease for details.

Even if you are a do it yourself kind of person you may consider using a handyman to do the work or even make repairs to keep you warm. I recently found an article on this and wanted to share it with you.

Be sure to keep warm and stay dry during the winter months!

How is your market?

 

 

One of the questions that I seem to hear the most is, “How it the market?” My response is GREAT! Truth is whether it is a buyer’s market or a seller’s market, if your home is priced correctly it should sell rather quickly. If it does, you achieved your goal. If you are not getting offers or showings then an adjustment needs to be made. The market often tells us what the price should be. Of course we may not like what we hear but that is a good temperature gauge for us. How is your market? If you have questions give me a call and I will answer your questions or at the very least point you in the right direction.
