Tips & Tricks for Guests Over the Holidays

Whether you’re hosting a couple of friends for a dinner party or your parents are coming to stay for a week, holiday cleaning is a chore that seems to sneak up on us. After many hours of Christmas shopping and office parties, the last thing on your mind is to prep your house for guests.  Here are some tips to make your life easier for when guests arrive. 

1. Try to have plenty of the necessities your guests may need (extra blankets, towels, etc.) to prevent them from having to ask.

2. Allow guests to help themselves.  For extended house guests show them where everything is and let them know they can make themselves at home.

3. Make sure you keep them in the loop (what time dinner will be ready, when you will be away from the house, etc) so they don’t feel like they are in the way of things.

4. Have some coffee ready in the mornings, or a coffee station available for your guests to make their own when they wake up.

5. Give your guests their privacy because everyone needs some alone time.

6. A little decor goes a long way. Have your Christmas decorations put out and your guests are sure to feel right at home.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a special time to be grateful for loving family, great friends, supportive communities, and all the gifts of life we’re all blessed to have. Thanksgiving is a day to thank God, not just a time to feel grateful while stuffing our faces with turkey. Gratitude will improve your life. It enhances our experience of life’s good things, allowing us to enjoy them more thoroughly. Gratitude always provides us with dignity, perhaps even with laughter, to survive the hard things in life. But we don’t just have to be thankful around Thanksgiving! Lets be thankful all year long!

We are truly thankful for YOU, our clients! Thanks for the support of The RED Team over the many years! We appreciate you! Now, go enjoy some time off and eat lots of yummy food!

What The Seller Should Expect from a Home Inspection

Home inspectors should be a welcome part of the home buying process for the seller the agent and the buyer. Not only will the inspector provide a list of items that need attention, but they also, by the process of elimination, indicate all the areas of the home that are in working order. If you’re the seller or agent, the home inspection process can be a seamless one if you follow some basic steps.

Make Repairs

Home inspectors are understandably meticulous when they look over the house. After all, that is what they are being paid for. It is the inspector’s job to find any existing issues or potential concerns, but that doesn’t mean they are going to tear the house apart and write up everything they see.

One area that they will pay special attention to are leaks. Be sure that anything that could be leaking is in good working order before inviting the inspector and the buyers into your home. Some things to look out for include:

  • Basement or crawl space water seepage
  • Appliances
  • Supply and waste plumbing
  • Crawlspaces and attics
  • HVAC units

A Clean House is a Happy House

You want to make a good impression on the prospective buyers as well as the inspector. It never hurts to clean the home before anyone arrives. Sweep, mop, vacuum, and dust to leave a fresh scent in your wake. Make sure any clutter or personal effects are put away and out of sight.

To Stay or To Go

Whether you decide to stay or go during the home inspection is ultimately your decision. It never hurts to ask the agents involved if the buyers have a preference. They may want you there to show them the trick to getting into the attic or where you’ve hidden the shed key. This can also be helpful for the inspector.

Knowing that your home is ready for another family’s memories is a little bittersweet, but it’s worth it. The home inspection process will go more smoothly if you prepare for it ahead of time.

Let the Sunshine In!

Now that winter is finally over spring cleaning is on lots of minds. What better way to let in those rays of sunshine than to make sure windows are squeaky clean!
What you use, how you clean and when you clean are all important to getting the shiny results you want. Here are a few window cleaning tips for spring.
First, choose a dry, cloudy day when the sun is not blazing, then the cleaner will not dry fast onto the hot windows before you have a chance to rinse and wipe them dry. If you really get the urge to clean your windows on a sunny day, make sure to start on the shady side of the house.
Second, remove loose soil and vacuum the sill and sash before cleaning the glass. If you skip this step you will have a muddy mess from all the liquid running down the window frames.
Third, spray your window with your cleaning solutions. There are many cleaning products available on the market. You can choose from concentrate, aerosols or ready to use sprayers, just make sure to use enough solution to dissolve the dirt so it can be easily wiped away. If you skimp on the amount of cleaner you’ll end up with streaks.
Fourth, dry the window. Time is of the essence in this step to ensure that those rays of sunshine can pour through a streak-free surface. Some like a squeegee tool, a microfiber clothe, newspaper or paper towel. A combination of using squeegee and microfiber clothe will decrease the time to complete the job. Dry the glass horizontally on the inside and vertically on the outside, so that if there is a streak, you’ll know which side it is on.
Spring is here, so let’s get out there and clean the windows so everyone can feel the warm rays of sunshine!
