 Keep your stuff safe when selling your home

As a Seller: Should I Be There for the Inspections and Appraisal? This is a very popular question sellers ask once they are under contract. The buyers have a 10 day inspection period once there is a fully signed and executed contract. The buyers then have the opportunity to schedule any and all inspections during this 10 day period.

Why should you clean your dryer vent? Lint clogging up your dryer vents not only diminishes the efficiency of your dryer, it’s also a fire hazard. Additionally, other obstructions can find their way not only into the flexible dryer vent attachment, but also in the vent leading from your house to the outside. Aside from lint, these vents can be clogged by other debris, including bird nests (yes, if they can get in, birds will build a nest there), wasp nests, grass clippings, and even an occasional sock or two.
