If you own Baton Rouge real estate now is the perfect time to prepare your home for winter. While it’s true that we do not get the extreme winter weather that the northern states receive, we do get extremely cold temperatures and the freezing weather can wreak havoc on our homes. Taking the time to prepare your Baton Rouge home for cold weather will pay off in the long run.

Important tasks to take care of around your Baton Rouge home at this time of year include disconnecting exterior hoses, turning off your irrigation system and blowing out the irrigation lines. Many homes in Baton Rouge, especially older ones, can benefit from insulating the pipes within the home. Another important step is having an inspection of your HVAC system. Not having heat when you need it can be an uncomfortable predicament to be in.

Baton Rouge Homes, Keep Bugs and Rodents Away

Glenda Daughety & Team, Baton Rouge real estate

Owners of Baton Rouge homes, keep bugs and rodents away.  No one wants unwanted creatures invading his home but often small creatures make their way in and take over spaces without us even knowing.  If you own a home in Baton Rouge do your part to repel bugs, mice, raccoons, squirrels, and others and you will not be disappointed.

Believe it or not your landscaping can have a lot to do with what creatures are attracted to your home.  Your best defense tactic is not to have any vines, shrubbery or trees actually touching your home.  Trees, bushes and vines that touch your house offer a gateway right into your home.  It is also important to pursue your Baton Rouge property.  Start with examining the exterior of your home and see if there are any missing roof shingles or obvious holes where littler critters would have their very own entrance in and out.

Taking care of your investment is an important part of home ownership.  Contact Glenda Daughety and Team to day for more information on Baton Rouge real estate.  We welcome the opportunity to serve as your guide to the area and the market.

Baton Rouge Real Estate, Laundry Room Appeal

Baton Rouge homes

Glenda Daughety and Team, Baton Rouge real estate

When it comes to Baton Rouge real estate a laundry room has great appeal. Many home buyers are drawn to homes that have a separate laundry room, knowing they can stay more organized and literally shut the door to their dirty laundry. While some homes may not appear to have space for a separate laundry room, if you are considering selling your Baton Rouge home it may be worth exploring creating a laundry room if one does not already exist in your home.

If you are going to add a laundry from to your Baton Rouge home knowing what you need is part of figuring out the cost. A basic laundry room will have room for a washer, dryer, and shelves or cabinetry. An added bonus would be a utility sink, built-in ironing board, and drying racks. A plumber and electrician can add to the cost.
