The Colorado Springs neighborhood of Peregrine is very similar to the higher sections of Skyway or Broadmoor in its topography and the type of homes found at each location. A key difference would be in the fact that Peregrine's highest section has more newly constructed homes. The views are also very similar with foothills above and the beauty of the night lights below. Mainly larger homes here, many of which have large wrapping wood decks allowing residents to enjoy the awesome views and great Colorado weather for the majority of the year. 2000 sales ranged from $301,289 to $616,452 for homes of 4,294 to 6,360 square feet.

Home Seller Checklist

Friday, July 20, 2012



Home Seller Checklist


Home Seller Checklist Home Seller Checklist

ACCESSIBILITY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING


-Make all exterior doors accessible.
-Provide keys or unlock all out-buildings and sheds.
-Remove window security screws, or provide keys for window security locks.
-Make sure all interior areas are accessible. Don’t lock the dog in a spare room or otherwise reduce access to areas in the home.
-Clear the way to the crawlspace access.
-Make sure the A/C unit is uncovered and de-winterized.
-Remove anything blocking access to the Electrical Panel.
-Remove excess belongings from utility and storage rooms so there is access for inspection.
-Make sure the attic is accessible and the stairs can be pulled down without endangering belongings or people below.
-Remove excess personal belongings from closets.

MAKE SURE IT'S ON


-Turn on sprinkler system.
-Turn on A/C System.
-Assure that all utilities are on (Electricity, Gas, Water, and all Pilot lights).

MAKE SURE IT WORKS


-Make sure all door locks are operable.
-Assure that all doors and windows open and close properly, and with ease.
-Be sure there is a minimum of one smoke detector per floor.
-Make sure smoke detectors are working and have fresh batteries.
-Make sure CO detectors are installed (and have fresh batteries if they are battery operated or have battery back-up). It’s simply a good idea to have CO detectors, but in some states it is also required.
-Make sure appliances are working: dishwasher, oven, microwave, and garbage disposal.
-Replace any burned-out light bulbs and make sure all interior and exterior light fixtures work.

MAKE NECESSARY REPAIRS


-Repair Leaks, drips, or water stains. If there is water anywhere where it shouldn't be, it's time to take care of it and repair the damage it left behind.
-If you have any water penetration issues, in a basement for example, it's better to address it now, rather than later.
-Replace all damaged window screens.
-Make sure all light switches operate properly, eliminating any “mystery switches” that could present doubts about the quality of the electrical system.
-Eliminate anything that wiggles, shakes or teeters. Repair handrails, tighten doorknobs, secure loose toilets,etc.

COMPLETE A FEW CHORES


-Remove debris from gutters/downspouts.
-Trim shrubs away from the foundation and away from A/C Condenser Unit.
-Remove wood, debris or stored items away from the foundation.
-Clear debris from under the refrigerator.
-Remove debris from shower drains.
-Clear the clutter.
-Clean and clear dryer vents.
-Remove “creative wiring” such as extension cords in attic, interior and exterior spaces.
-Replace/clean HVAC filter.
-Consider having the A/C unit cleaned and serviced especially if it’s been a while.
-Consider having gas fireplace serviced or wood-burning chimney cleaned.
-Test the safety auto-reverse on your garage door and adjust the pressure if it does not auto reverse when encountering a 2” tall block at the garage floor.

TAKE CARE OF PETS AND PET DAMAGE


-It’s best that pets are removed from the premises when possible. Also keep in mind that inspectors need access to the entire home, so the garage and the backyard are not a great idea.
-Repair pet damage. Scratched or urine-soaked wood floor, wood trim, walls, or carpet should be repaired or replaced.

EXTRAS FOR HOMES WITH CHILDREN


-Consider propping baby gates open so that walking through the home is easy.
-Be sure to provide instructions or necessary devices for operating safety lock mechanisms on cabinets, doors, gates etc.
-Reduce toy clutter if possible.

What To Do When You Move Into A New Home

Friday, July 20, 2012



What To Do When You Move Into A New Home


What To Do When You Move Into A New Home What To Do When You Move Into A New Home

Congratulations! You’ve purchased a new home and are all moved in! There’s been a lot to take care of, like emptying boxes, loading up cabinets and drawers, and maybe even painting and decorating, but here are 10 around-the-house tasks you may not have thought of that are essential to starting things off on the right foot when it comes to caring for your new home.

The secret to a well maintained home is to start your maintenance early—ahem—that means now. But, don't get nervous. It's not all work, work, work. Doing your home maintenance bit by bit is a great way to accomplish it all, but over time so that there's plenty of room for relaxing too. Additionally, preventative maintenance now, will reduce the liklihood of unwelcome (many times costly) surprises down the road.

Here are ten great things to do around the house when you first move in!

1) Change the locks, reprogram garage door opener codes, and check that all window locks operate. If there's a security system, learn how it operates and sign up for any maintenance or monitoring plans that yours requires.

2) Locate emergency shut offs. Know how to shut off the power, water, and gas in your home. Also, know the location of your main and any sub electrical panel boxes.

3) Create a "fix it" kit. Buy a toolbox and stock it with frequently-used tools and supplies. Tip: Include a small first aid kit within your toolbox—that way, if injuries do occur, you won't have to go far in order to properly tend to them.

4) Service smoke alarms and CO monitors. Both devices require fresh batteries twice annually (don’t forget electric detectors with battery back-up) and full replacement regularly. (Smoke alarms, min every 8-10 years, CO monitors min every 5 years).

5) Perform necessary seasonal maintenance. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, there are tasks around the home that when completed, help the whole season run more smoothly. Utilize resources like usinspect.com to get your checklists, and be off to a great start no matter what time of year you move.

6) Change filters in your HVAC system. This will not only help clear out all the dust that’s been kicked up during the move, but a clean filter also helps your system function more efficiently and extends its lifespan.

7) Check pilot lights. Check pilot lights on stove, water heater, gas fireplace, and furnace.

8) Be sure hazardous items are stowed away safely (that includes cans of paint). Flammable substances should be kept away from pilot lights, stoves, or water heaters (don’t forget gas dryers). Also, be sure that you have identified any substances left behind by the previous owner.

9) Learn how to operate and properly maintain any items in the home that are new to you like appliances, fireplaces, the septic tank, garbage disposal, hot tub, etc. You may be unaware of vitally important operation or care instructions that are necessary for proper function and safety. If you don’t have manufacturer owner’s manuals, look them up. Virtually any product manual out there can be downloaded right from the Internet.

10) Address the items mentioned in your home inspection report. You may have already addressed the big issues, but did your inspector mention any necessary maintenance or smaller repairs that would be necessary upon moving in? That's now! Remember that proactively caring for your home with maintenance and service is the primary way to prevent unwelcome surprises down the road. Reread your report and don’t hesitate to call your inspector to clarify his recommendations or to answer any questions you may have.
