4 things you shouldn’t ask a real estate agent over Christmas dinner

christmas dinner

Everyone knows someone in real estate.  As Christmas is only a few days away, here are a few questions that get commonly asked and why you shouldn’t ask them (at least at the dinner table).

  1. Are you still doing real estate? Basically you are saying you didn’t think they would make it in the business. Real estate is a hard business. We do realize that people come and go in the business so it helps to feel the love and support from those closest to them.
  2. Why don’t you try and get a real job? Real estate isn’t a “job” that you show up 9 to 5 and collect a steady pay check at the end of the week.  This is a career… a tough one to succeed at too! Real estate agents are doing everything they can to stay positive and focused.
  3. What’s your back up plan?  Just. Don’t. Ask.
  4. Do you have any listings that are good deals? Probably just a question that gets asked to make conversation.  But it just implies that you would only be interested in buying a house if the agent happened to have a listing that was a good deal.  But this question may just be a matter of not understanding what it means when one asks, “Do you have any listings…”

There’s nothing wrong with these questions, but just know that if you want an accurate answer you should ask the agent to give you a good analysis and explanation. And that just can’t be done as they pass you the gravy.

Winter is coming! Is your home winter ready?  Here are 3 easy strategies for making your home winter ready.

house winter ready

Preparing your home for the winter can be intimidating, labor-intensive and time-consuming.  But the financial benefits will outweigh any doubts you may be having.  Heating costs can easily skyrocket if your windows are not insulated properly, or your plumbing breaks or if the heating system is out of date.  Just tackle the to do list over 3 -4 weekends and not get overwhelmed. Here are 3 quick and cost-effective actions any homeowner can tackle to prepare your home for winter:

  1.  Prepare the Plumbing:  Drain the water from outdoor faucets and garden hoses. If you have a swimming pool make sure to get properly closed.
  2. Who doesn’t enjoy a cozy evening by the fire?  Make sure to have the chimney inspected and cleaned before the first frost.  If your furnace has a filter check to see if it needs replacing.
  3. Keep drafts to a minimum and install storm windows and doors.  Add weather stripping around the doors and windows and caulk any gaps.

You will be feeling cozy in no time!
