Retiring Soon? Why Moving Could Be Your Perfect Step!

If you’re thinking about retirement or have already retired this year, it’s a good time to consider if your current house is still a good fit for the next chapter in your life.

 

Fortunately, you may be in a better position to make a move than you realize. Here are a few things to think about as you decide whether or not to sell and make a move.

5 Tasks Every Homeowner Should Do In January

ratio 

The holidays are done. The new year has rung in.

 

That's when smart homeowners know it's time to do these five things that'll save time, money, and hassles all year long.

 

#1 Organize Your Seasonal Storage Space

 

Packing away holiday decor presents a big opportunity. It's the best time to sort, declutter, and reorganize that space where you store your seasonal stuff. Take inventory; then sort, filter, donate, trash, and re-home as many of your things as possible.

 

#2 Deep-Clean the Kitchen

 

Give your kitchen a good deep cleaning now that the glittery dust has settled.

Purge your pantry and frisk your fridge, passing what you can on to local food banks. Scrub the walls and appliances.

 

#3 Plan Summertime Projects Now (Especially if You Need a Pro)

 

Finalize plans for any landscaping, decks, patios, or other outdoor projects that need warm weather. If you're hiring a contractor or other professional, getting your bids and contracts in place now will save you from competing with the spring rush (wait too long, and you may not be able to book anyone!).

 

#4 Create a Schedule to Clean ALL Your Home's Filters

 

It's not just your HVAC. The filters in your fridge, your vacuum cleaner, your dryer, your air filter, and other household items need to be changed or cleaned at least once a year to be effective, usually more often — especially your dehumidifier.

 

#5 Save Some Green at White Sales

 

Linens and towels go on sale in January. It's a long-standing retail tradition that started back when linens only came in white (hence the name), and it still has a solid rep as a money-saver — only in more colors today
