Cooler temperatures and mountain snow are reminders that it’s time to prepare your home for winter. Here are steps to take to get ready for falling leaves and freezing temperatures, as recommended by House Beautiful. 

1. Prepare your gutters

Clean and well-functioning gutters are a must for winter. Now is the time to clear gutters of leaves and debris and replace damaged sections. 

2. Ensure against drafts

Windows are a major source of heat loss in the home. One simple solution is to eliminate drafts with weather stripping. To check for drafts, close the door or window on a strip of paper, and then slide the paper. If it slides easily, it’s time to replace your weather stripping.

For a real estate investor nearing retirement, the thought of continuing to manage property can seem burdensome. A Tenant-In-Common (TIC) investment could be just the ticket to feeling less strained. Likewise, if you want to invest in real estate at any stage in life and not be encumbered with any of the day-to-day issues of being a landlord, a TIC investment could be worth checking into. 

What is a TIC?

Using a patented system, Walk Score® is a free website and app that measures the walkability of any address. It is based on a point system where amenities within a five-minute walk are given maximum points. Using a declining system, points are assigned for amenities that are up to a 30- minute walk, with no points awarded after 30 minutes. It also uses an algorithm to analyze pedestrian friendliness by reviewing population density and road metrics like block length and intersection density.

Home sales in Boulder-area single-family and attached housing markets rose in August along with the late summer heat index.

I rode my bike up to Jamestown on September 22, the first day of fall this year. The replacement pavement on the road is within a couple of hundred yards from the heart of Jamestown. As I returned on Highway 36, crossing the new bridge over Lefthand Creek, I realized that Boulder County is finally close to recovering from the epic flood of September 2013. It was five years ago that the Boulder area received as a much rain in a week as it normally does in a year. The storm’s havoc left us rebuilding from it even until now. Driving up Boulder Canyon, a sign still proclaims, “Temporary Road Open, Governor Hickenlooper”. I wonder when our permanent road will be installed? The total estimated damage from the storm was around $3 billion dollars.
