Fall, A Season to Prepare Your Santa Clarita Home

    taking care of your Santa Clarita homeFall is a perfect season to prepare your SCV home.

    No matter what community in which you live in the Santa Clarita Valley – Castaic, Canyon Country, Newhall, Acton, Agua Dulce, Saugus, Stevenson Ranch or Valencia – We are getting close to the holidays.

    This time of year is one of the most spectacular seasons, offering an end to summer in a most colorful way. This is also a great time to put summer items away and get your home ready for winter. Both the exterior of your home and the interior of your home could use some attention. Take care of exterior items on the nicer days and the interior for less enchanting weather!

    Outside your home take care of your yard, gardens, trees, gutters, and sprinkler system. A few things to pay attention to:

    • Mow your lawn one last time, aerate, and fertilize it to prepare it for a healthy start come Spring.
    • Plant bulbs, like tulips and daffodils, that will appear first in the Spring. Fall is an ideal time to plant a variety of bulbs.
    • Cut back your gardens and prune your shrubs. Most flowers and plants should be cut back to get rid of what is dead and ready them for the best growth come the spring season.
    • Clear out the gutters of all debris so that rain and snow can run freely through the troughs without backing up. Gutters are notorious for getting clogged with leaves and natural debris.
    • Unhook your garden hoses and blowout your sprinkler system to avoid burst pipes come freezing temperatures.

    Inside your home there a re a number of chores as well:

    • Have your heating system checked before you need it. Nothing is worse than needing your heat, turning it on, and not having it work!
    • Check your window and door seals to reduce winter’s drafty winds and cold air from invading your home.

    Spring may be a season known for cleaning, but Fall is the time of year to prepare your home for a harder climate. Now is the ideal time to get things done around your home before a colder climate creeps up on you!

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.
