Deer Valley Specialist Real Estate Tip Of The Week: Maintenance Musts

By Delia Reece
Aug 25, 2014

First time home buyers, Congratulations! We’ve compiled a checklist for you to help with the maintenance. These are the little things that you can do to keep them from becoming big things. Some simple maintenance and you’re good to go. Change your furnace filters monthly.   It’s easy to do and so critical.

*Change your furnace filters monthly.   It’s easy to do and so critical.  Clogged filters decrease furnace efficiency and can cause breakdowns.

*Drain your water heater at least once a year. Sediment will drain out along with the water from the water tank. Removing sediment can prolong the heater’s life.

*Clean the coils.   Clearing dust from the coils maximizes efficiency.

*Check your circuits. At least twice a year, test the performance of the circuit breakers in your electrical circuit box by flipping them off then back on. If you have a circuit that keeps shutting with normal daily electrical use, call an electrician. This could be an indication of a short in the wiring.

*Watch out for drips. Check under sinks every so often to look for leaks or water stains that might indicate a leak. Catching this early can prevent water damage.

Deer Valley Specialist Real Estate Tip Of The Week: Investing In Real Estate

By Delia Reece
Aug 18, 2014

deer valley bathroomAs we all have witnessed over the past decade, the real estate industry is very cyclical.  What goes up, at some point will go down, and vice-versa. A downturn can motivate some experienced investors to take advantage of a golden opportunity and acquire property at a good price, with hopes of making a profit in the future. The potential for income and tax savings can also make investment property attractive.

Whether it’s commercial property, a Park City or Deer Valley primary residence , 2nd home or rental; if you are thinking of investing in real estate, it’s important to get professional advice before you buy.

Working with a Park City REALTOR® who specializes in investment properties can simplify the process tremendously. Your REALTOR® knows all the issues that are involved and can go over your investment goals with you to help you select a property that best meets your needs. Your REALTOR® can’t predict how much a particular property will appreciate, but can show you the direction of trends in your market area.
