WHATS THAT NOISE IN THE ATTIC

Wednesday, November 20, 2019Norm Rousseauposted in General

lf the weather outside is frightful, you may currently find your self in hibernation mode. And if you're not used to spending a lot of time indoors you may start lo notice sounds you've never noticed before, including scurrying and scratching noises from inside your roof or walls.

The pitter patter of little feet above your head could suggest that rodents have taken shelter inside your attic. Taking a peek inside your attic, evidence of an infestation can include chewed wiring, gnawed insulation, compromised wood, and droppings. Don't wait another minute to call in a professional pest control expert to confirm what kind of invader you're dealing with, keeping in mind that mice, squirrels and raccoons can make noises much greater than their size would suggest, especially when any noise is amplified by an unfinished attic space.

Once you confirm critters are inside your attic as opposed to on the outside of your house - perhaps using your roof as a super highway you'll - want the pest control people to trap and remove them before they have a chance to do real damage. What you definitely don't want to do is put poison out, as if an animal dies up n your attic you'll find yourself dealing with a situation that literally stinks.

SECRETS OF SUCCESS

Friday, November 1, 2019Norm Rousseauposted in General

Sometimes it's not the home that stands in the way of a sale, but the seller. Below are four characteristics of successful sellers worth emulating throughout the spring market.

1. Successful sellers are serious about selling. They don't list just to test the waters and see what they could get if they decided to sell. Their goal is to sell - as such, they're willing to do the work (e.g. repairs) needed to make their home more marketable; they price to sell; and they take every offer seriously, keeping negotiations open by making counter-offers.

2. Successful sellers are emotionally detached. They're better able to see their property as a product rather than their home, and, as a result, they're less likely to overprice (as they're less sentimental); they struggle less with staging their interiors to suit buye6'tastes rather than their own; and they're less likely to take offence at buyers' negative comments or low offers.
