Preparing for a power outage

Some people can live in their homes for years without ever experiencing a power outage. In fact, even in areas prone to serious storms or snowfalls, power loss doesn't happen that often. No wonder so many homeowners are caught unprepared when it does.

  • Replace batteries in unused flashlights every six months.

 

  • Keep candles and matches in a handy place. Monitor them closely when lit and always blow them out before going to sleep.

 

  • For computers and phones, consider purchasing a power backup. (Some models provide up to 8 hours of power for two or three devices.)

One thing buyers don't love to see is potential maintenance issues. So as much as possible, get things fixed or updated.

 

In fact, the more "finished"...

Showtime: Tips for Showing your Home

After putting in a huge amount of time and effort to get your home looking good and ready to sell, your hard work is finally going to pay off:  your home is on the market—you’re ready to begin showing.  Your house should always be at-the-ready for a tour, as agents may bring clients by with very little notice.  If they catch you unprepared and you aren’t able to show the house on the spot, you could be losing out on a sale.  Concentrate on the following areas to ensure your home is ready to show:

 

  1. People

 

Homebuyers may feel like intruders if you are present while they view your house, and this will affect their overall impression.  Consider taking the opportunity to visit the local coffee...
