GrillingThe days are getting longer and warming up so surely that means summer is just around the corner. As it gets closer, think about anything you need to do to get your Bastrop home summer ready. Like a new bathing suit for you or a summer grooming for your dog, your house needs some prep too. Where should you start?

If your gutters haven’t been cleaned out lately, start with that. Late spring and summer will definitely bring some summer storms with accompanying downpours. Make sure your gutters are ready to work so the rain can be directed away from your home quickly.

Home WarrantyWhen you are buying a home, your real estate agent will likely offer you a home warranty to purchase. As you are making so many decisions to go along with buying a house, you may not really understand what you are purchasing or not purchasing.

What is a home warranty and how does it work?

Think of a home warranty as insurance on the working parts of your home. Like insurance, everything isn’t covered but many things are and each home warranty will detail the items that are and are not covered. Suppose your air conditioner stops working.

Curb AppealIf you are thinking about selling your Bastrop home, your home may be in need of some serious curb appeal. Lucky for you, spring is the easiest season to do that.
