The end of summer in Michigan means school is getting ready to start and is only weeks away. This always produces a panic for those that have been trying to sell and for those that are trying to buy.
Schools of choice become a factor. The gas prices have created another requirement for driving distance to work and commutes to the grocery store...so location of the new home has also become a more important factor.
The size of the yard, the toy storage has been an issue too...but some folks are looking at selling some of those gas guzzling toys.
So there seems to be a bit of a lull in the yard storage issue.
The end of summer means those maintenance issues that have been put off have to be addressed before the cold weather is back....what a thought that is..where did I hide the snow shovel?
Caulk around the windows, door weather stripping, sealing the deck, checking shingles and the list goes on.
Fall issues are being planned right now....trimming up the shrubs for winter cutting back some of the trees from the roof...all have to be done. Who wants to think about that stuff...well it isn't all that far off and we will all think about these issues. After all we live in Michigan wonderland.
Now is the time to think about the other projects too like adding insulation to lower your heat bill. This winter everyone will have a higher heat bills according to the estimates on supply and demand.
What are you thinking about for your summers end?
