Fall Home Maintenance Tips

September 25, 2017

Use these must-do fall maintenance tips to keep your house in shape and help keep you warm this winter.

  • Regularly clean gutters and downspouts. Make sure all drainage areas are unblocked by leaves and debris. Consider installing gutter guards to make the job a lot easier.
  • Use a screwdriver to probe the wood trim around windows, doors, railings and decks. Use caulk to fill the holes or completely replace the wood.
  • Lower humidity and cooler (not yet cold) temperatures make fall a good time to paint the exterior of your home.
  • Inspect your roof, or hire a licensed professional to examine your roof for wear and tear. If the shingles are curling, buckling or crackling, replace them. If you have a lot of damage, it's time to replace the entire roof. Also, check the flashing around skylights, pipes and chimneys. If you have any leaks or gaps, heavy rain can find its way in.

Making a Difference With San Diego’s Voices for Children

July 12, 2017

San Diego is a wonderful place to raise a family, according to the real estate experts at Movoto. However, there are plenty of children from Oceanside to Otay Mesa who aren’t as fortunate as the average Southern California family. San Diego’s foster care system strives to provide resources for thousands of children who need a helping hand, but once a child enters into the system, it can be difficult (or impossible) for them to advocate for the resources that they need to grow up as healthy, well-adjusted citizens.
