Tips For Sundance Film Festival

By Diana
Jan 18, 2017

Sundance Film Festival starts tomorrow January 19th!  Thousands upon thousands of people will be coming to Park City to take in all that the Film Festival has to offer.  Park City has decided to draft a community guide to help guide locals around all the action with minimal impacts to your daily schedule.  The guide may be for locals but it really can probably help anyone coming to Sundance Film Festival.

One big new thing this year is free satellite parking at Richardson Flat which can be accessed from Hwy 248/ Kearns Blvd. Transit will be available to and from to the High School from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 am, January 20-23. During this time, transit will run 10-minute service between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and midnight. At midnight, transit will run 20-minute service. Last bus to connect to Richardson Flats leaves the Old Town Transit Center at 2:30 a.m. From the high school you can transfer on transit or walk to venues in Prospector. January 19 and January 24 - 29, this lot will be available for carpool parking only with no transit service.

Deer Valley Specialist Real Estate Tip Of The Week: Make Selling Your Home Easy

By Diana
Jan 10, 2017

Choosing a competitive asking price, bringing your home up to pristine showing condition, and working with an experienced Park City REALTOR® are all essential factors that make a successful sale possible. However, if your home is not easy to view, all of your hard work could be undermined.

When preparing to take a buyer around to see homes, a Park City REALTOR® usually makes a list of available properties based upon the buyer’s preferences. And since time is always an issue, they will tend to start with homes that are easily accessible.

Buyers need the freedom to visit a Park City home more than once in order to effectively compare properties and make a final decision. That’s why Park City REALTORS® might favor homes that are equipped with a lockbox and do not require an appointment for viewing.

In this competitive market, you want to make it as easy as possible for your potential buyers. Having a lock box lets them see your home on their own time schedule.

For rock solid advice on buying or selling real estate, call Craig Reece at 435-647-8017 or toll free at 866-709-8016. Craig has been a full time Park City resident since 1973 and a full time Park City real estate agent since 1978.

Deer Valley Specialist Real Estate Tip: January Home Checklist

By Diana
Jan 03, 2017

January may be cold and dark, but it can also be a time for bold beginnings. Make the most of your month by clearing space in your Deer Valley or Park City home, boosting warmth and dreaming up plans for the year ahead. Here are 7 to-dos to give your home a little midwinter TLC.

1. Protect pipes from freezing. Why? Because frozen pipes can burst, leading to costly repairs. If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to insulate any exposed outdoor pipes. And if you’re planning to be away from home, ask a friend or neighbor to turn on your water to a trickle. Also, find out where your home’s water shut-off valve is so you can quickly shut off the water if a pipe does burst — and be sure to show your house sitter where it is.

2. Take steps to prevent ice dams. Ice dams are areas of built-up ice that can accumulate around your roof line, causing leaks when the backed-up snow behind them begins to melt. Using a roof rake, remove snow after each storm. And, if you notice an ice dam beginning to form (and if you can safely reach the area), break it up now to prevent future damage.

3. Check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. With more heater use and wood fires in the fireplace, it is especially important during winter to make sure those smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working. Use the test button on each device and change batteries as needed.

4. Clean out the kitchen and pantry. Remove everything from the pantry, toss out stale and expired foods, and wipe down the shelves before putting everything back. Clean out the fridge and freezer, and clear off counter-tops. Let the refreshed space motivate you to stick with health resolutions for the new year!

5. Clear home and wardrobe clutter. Make a fresh start with the new year, and clear out the clutter. If dealing with the whole house feels overwhelming, focus on just a few categories of items, such as clothes, books and children’s toys.

6. Refresh play spaces. Entice little ones stuck indoors to “creative play” and hopefully cut down on cries of “I’m bored!” Try adding a chalkboard or whiteboard wall, a play tent or tepee, an area for messy art, a “stage” for acting, or a tumbling mat.

7. Take down holiday decorations and store them well. When you’re ready to put away the holiday decorations, take the time to do it with care (you’ll thank yourself later). Wrap delicate ornaments in tissue paper, and wrap string lights around cardboard to prevent tangling. Consider giving away ornaments that didn’t make it onto the tree this year, and repair or toss broken items. And if you’re not ready to say goodbye to the white twinkle lights quite yet? Leave them up! We can all use a little extra cheer in the middle of winter.
