 5 Home Maintenance Tips for Fall - Posted September 7, 2017

 by DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS | FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 01, 2017

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Your clients may be able to shave up to 30 percent off their energy bills this fall by conducting appropriate preparation measures on their home. For example, stripping and caulking the home to prevent drafts could be a major money saver, according to WIN Home Inspection.

WIN President Steve Wadlington offers the following five tips to share with your clients on how to clean and update the home to get it cold weather-ready:

 

  • Check the roof. Sun exposure can cause warping, fading, chipping, and other deformities to roofs and siding materials. Inspect the roof for cracks or other damages, and repair any issues before winter.
  • Sweep the chimney. If there is a blockage, or if residue is built up, the risk of fire and other safety issues increases. Homeowners will want to make sure the chimney is clean and in tip-top shape for winter use.
  • Clean the gutters. Check gutters for leaves or other debris that may be blocking water flow. Be sure to clear them out so water can properly drain. Gutters are essential in preventing water damage and other costly repairs.
  • Check weather stripping and caulking. This is essential to keep windows and doors sealed. Windows and doors may become slightly detached from their frames during colder months, so it’s important to make sure they are properly attached at the beginning of the season.
  • Check out floors. With all the heat and moisture of the summer months, floors may be showing some signs of wear and tear. Scratched, dull, or damaged floors should be professionally scuff-sanded and recoated.

Pool for Your home?   - Posted April 5, 2017


 

Have you considered getting a home with a pool in the Albuquerque Area?  They can definitely be a great lifetime exercise for anyone.  Most people enjoy their pools in the Albuquerque area between the months of late May through late September.  Although we are known for our mild winters, we see at least a couple strong months of cold weather.  A pool can be used longer with built in heating and insulation covering.  

If you are considering a home with a pool, know going into the purchase and the ongoing maintenance.  Especially to make a pool a lasting investment.  A pool to have the longest season in area also requires an ongoing heating source and water needs to be replenished regularly.  Those can increase your homes overall cost to own when considering homes with a pool.  But our 300+ days of sunlight in the area make it a great place to own a pool.  

Did you there are only 44 listings newer than 20 years old in the greater Albuquerque area under $750,000 with private pools? 195 available for sale homes all together have pools or about 5.7% of the available homes on the market (Total of 3365 Homes on Market as of 4/4/2017).
