winter: Improving curb appeal in a Wisconsin winter - 02/11/10 05:07 AM
The days are growing longer, but we are still in the depths of winter here in Green County. Helping a home to have some curb appeal this time of year is a bit harder than in the summer months with gardens blooming, but it is still possible to do things to help.
Clear your driveway, sidewalks and porches of all snow and ice. Get out there right away after a snow storm to clean them off. If you do get a buildup in ice in spots from driving into the garage or people walking on the sidewalk, pick up a scraper … (1 comments)

winter: "If only I had known!" - 01/06/09 06:22 AM
It seems to happen every year:
A seller has a vacant home and does not get there to check on things regularly because of being busy or being out of the area. The homeowner assumes everything is fine because the furnace was running and the heat was set at 55 degrees.
A family goes out of town for vacation.  They are only going to be gone a week, a few short days.  They turn the furnace down a little and merrily head out for their getaway without a care in the world.
