August 2018 - Home improvements for fall

Dearest friends,

The season is changing, and you know what that means, back to school, back to work, it's time to get back to reality.  

We always think about spring cleaning, but fall is another good time to re-set your home. A lot of you will be spending more time at home in the coming months relaxing if not entertaining. If the change of season has not motivated you already, we hope to give you ideas for some improvements to cozy up your homes.

  1. Wash interior windows, curtains and blinds

  2. Deep clean carpets, couch and duvet covers

  3. Declutter your kitchen; clean out fridge/pantry and scrub down the oven

  4. Perform maintenance on your HVAC system, fireplace, dust/wash airvents

  5. Check basement for any cracks in the foundation, before winter hits

  6. Winterize air conditioning unit and any outdoor patio furniture

  7. Most importantly, get into the season, put down a new mat outside the door add some fall decor

As hard as it is to say goodbye to warm days of summer we look forward to enjoying our homes with friends and family. Show your home a little TLC and then take the time to enjoy it!  

Welcome back to your happy place. Good luck to all trying to get back into their normal routines. As always we are never to busy for new referrals and here for all your buying/selling needs.

Let's Talk About
Your Dream Home
As sellers located 4 hours away from Ottawa, we were thrilled with the service received from Dana Palombo and Rachel Hammer. Dana and Rachel took care of all the little issues we couldn't attend to and were our eyes and ears on the ground in Ottawa. They took time to carefully explain the agreements we needed to sign and advocated on our behalf with issues that needed to be addressed. I would highly recommend the Rachel Hammer Real Estate Team to anyone buying or selling a home. Thanks Ladies!
