As the leaves glow in warm golden hues of autumn, homeowners in anticipation of blustery days ahead begin the process of winterizing their homes.
When heading off to warmer climates for the winter season, there is a great deal to consider in preparation... even more so when you are leaving behind a property that is active on the market.
When you have a house that is on the market that is not being lived in, this is not the time to save on heating/cooling bills. It is imperative for showings that the property be warm on cold days, cool on hot days, and always present a well-maintained curb appeal.
Our advice is to engage someone on the homefront to act on your behalf to ensure that the house and property are always in good repair (following stormy weather, sweeping away cobwebs that form around unused entrances, etc)
Investing in light timers with dual time settings and strategically placing them throughout the house on staggered settings is an ingenius way to create movement in an empty home.
