Get Ready and Prepare Now!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Plus

Welcome to Winter in Rochester NY.  We are glad the winds blow and dump more snow in Buffalo NY then here (poor things had to sleep in their cars all night), but we did get lots of rain which caused ponding and flooding, then it snowed and the temperatures dropped (they went from 58 degrees to 20 by the end of the day) and the roads froze and we finally got reminded to dig out those winter boots and coats, find where we put the shovels and oh yes...call the snow plow guy and get signed up!

This all teaches us we need to prepare.

Find those warm winter clothes and throwe some extra "old" ones in the car along with a blanket, sweater, water and food. (A game or two for the kids is a good idea too)

Keep your car filled with gas and check your tire pressure

Keep your sidewalks clear of snow and ice so no one gets hurt

And PLEASE-remember how to drive in this weather...practice in a parking lot if you have to.  The roads get covered and you can't see the lines in the road...but please stop freaking out and holding that steering wheel so tight....pay attention and relax a little.  If you defrost your car windows before you try and drive on the expressway-that would be appreciated!

Oh, and remember...It does snow in Rochester NY!  But life goes on, stores are still open and even houses are still for sale.  And with current rates...deals are available!

If you are renting, start preparing to buy a house.  Check your credit, how many trade lines do you have? How much can you afford? What do you want or need?  You will certainly save money and have piece of mind paying a mortgage than paying your landlords mortgage! You can find more information at www.RochesterNYRealty.com

If you think you might be losing your job-prepare now.  While you have the money, get those needed home repairs done (loose or stuffed gutters, old furnace, broken windows, worn roof, etc). If we need to sell your home because you lost your job-you will be ready to hit the market and put yourself in the best position. Staging and home prepardness is easy and fairly inexpensive!

Need help preparing for a snow storm?  Need questions answered about buying or selling?

I am here to help you prepare.  Stay Warm!  My Best, SUSAN

All great tips.  And the slamming on the breaks.  That doesn't stop you. That makes you spin!!

That was the problem driving the other day...I could not hit the breaks, could not accelerate both would cause me to spin...the guy to my left could not move over because of another car...the woman who pulled into my lane....was holding on to her steering wheel so tight. No way she could see her side view mirrors or half of her front window...all fogged over!  I glided between the two cars.  PHEW!
