November is Time for Gutters, Leaves, Lawns & HVACs [[+]] Central Texas Housing Market Remains Stable, On Track for Record Year: Chuck Farr’s November 2021 “Talking Real Estate” ENewsletter

 

Did you miss me? After a challenging year of Covid in 2020 that stretched into the early Spring of 2021, this Summer and Fall lifted off again as my brokerage business charged back and a new side investment-business launch consumed much of my time. We are back with another monthly enewsletter! Hello again, sports fans, homeowners, tenants, prospective buyers, and real-estate investors. The Austin area housing market remains stable and on track for a record year (check the [[“Talking Real Estate” Monthly Enewsletter]] for details!). Fall is here and has its own home maintenance checklist in Central Texas. Here are a few items to consider during November:

  •       Outdoor Tasks:

o   Plant and fertilize. Fall is a great time to lay down some good fertilizer on the lawn, plant trees, bushes, and perennials; they will thank you for not planting them in the blaze of summer. Fall/winter planting allows the plants and their roots to dig in before next year.

o   Rake leaves and mow/shred to use as mulch or dispose of them based on local guidelines. Many naturalists say to just leave the leaves on your lawn as a natural compost; most say the leaves will not damage your lawn, because it is going dormant for the Winter anyway.

o   Clean gutters and downspouts after the raking season.

  •       Indoor Tasks:

o   Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors if you did not do so when you set Daylight Savings Time clocks back in early November.

o   Have furnace professionally inspected. If you are on a semi-annual HVAC maintenance plan, have your system serviced in the next couple of months.
