In light of 2017, I decided there are a few New Year’s resolutions I wanted to start and maintain when it comes to my home this year. There are seven that I want to share with you:

1. I will turn off all my lights. I have small kids, so I can’t imagine how much money is wasted every month from lights being left on.

2. I will remove my shoes and compel others to do the same. This is always a good idea if you have carpet in your house. Taking your shoes off every single day can make a big difference over a long period of time.

3. I will put money into a maintenance account for my house regularly. This is for when things break and for preventative maintenance.

4. I will conduct many inspections of my house.

“SIMPLY TAKING YOUR SHOES OFF EVERY DAY WILL MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN KEEPING YOUR CARPET CLEAN.”

5. I will wash my windows consistently. Think of how much brighter your house is without that film of dust throughout the year.

6. I will change my A/C filters monthly. This is a big one most people forget. I actually write the day that I change the filter on it so I know when to change it out.

7. I will declutter a bit every single day. Just keep the house clean and when you move, you’ll have less to deal with.

I highly recommend these seven tips to any fellow homeowners. If you have any questions or you’re thinking about buying or selling a home, give me a call or send me an email. I’d love to hear from you!
