November is the perfect time to check some things off of your home maintenance to-do list, prepare it for winter, and make sure everything is set for the new year. Smart homeowners know to get a few things done this time of year to save money and reduce stress. The real estate experts at Foxtrot Realty have shared a few essential fall tasks they recommend to their clients in Green Valley Ranch, CO.
Essential November Home Maintenance
1. Replace Appliances
If your dishwasher is past its prime or the boiler is getting old, fall is the time to replace all your appliances. Manufacturers are bringing out new models in time for the holidays and put all of last year’s models on sale to make space for the new stock. You can save a significant amount by replacing your appliances now.
2. Schedule Heating Service
As the weather gets colder, homeowners turn on their heating system for the first time in months. It’s been sitting stagnant all year and needs to be serviced. A contractor will clean the system and inspect it to make sure it’s in working order. Service will make for a more efficient system and help prevent costly breakdowns a month or two down the road.
3. Winterize Plumbing
When pipes freeze and burst during the winter, homeowners end up with a messy and expensive emergency. The exposed plumbing should all be insulated before the ground freezes for the first time. This includes all plumbing outside and in unheated areas, such as the attic or garage. A professional plumber can conduct a full winterization of your system.
Whether you’re a seasoned homeowner ready to sell or buy, it’s important to have everything organized. The team at Foxtrot Realty can make everything easier. They provide service for buying or selling real estate and can help you transition into your new home
