Idea for wet shoes

March 23rd, 2012 · No Comments

The rainy spring weather has arrived in Rochester, Minnesota. Here is a quick tip for your family to try instead of getting that nice new rug you got wet! Take a plastic tray and dress it up with some stones or pebbels.  When you or your family come in from outside with wet shoes put your shoes on the tray.  It saves your rug and gives your entry way a new look keeping everything fresh.The water drips to the tray and your rug stays dry! Your guests will never know what the plastic tray is for with the pebbles/stones on it! More then likely they will steal the idea from you!

To clean off the tray and pebbles/stones wash under hot water every couple of days!

Winter Home Tip

January 19th, 2012 · No Comments

DeCook Builders Winter Home Tip:

Winter is finally here!! Attic insulation may settle and become impacted over time which will effect your home’s heat loss. This not only raises your heating costs, but can contribute to conditions that create ice dams. Adding clown fiberglass insulation to the unfinished attic space of your home is easy and cost effective.

Good Bye 2011, Hello 2012

January 19th, 2012 · No Comments

Happy 2012!

Where has the time gone? It was a year of great transtition in the real estate market for southeast Minnesota. We saw the number of forclosures drop which was a postivie but we also saw the average house sales price drop. At Edina Realty Rochester we continued to lead the market! Our 2012 has started off even stronger. It doesn’t hurt that we had such a mild December with lots of people heading out to open houses giving us the feel of a spring market. finally feels like winter in Rochester! Bundle up!

Interest rates continue to stay well below anything we could have imagined. Edina Realty Mortgage helped most of my clients with record low rates whether buying or refinancing. It look as though they may stay this way for at least a few months and that should help our market come back as well.

As we look ahead my goals are again to give exceptional customer service and follow-up. I want to thank you all for your many referrals. I cannot express my gratitude enough for your confidence and support! THANK YOU!

I wish you all a wonderful 2012 filled with love, laughter, good health and proserpity.

Warmest Regards,

It’s been too long… I hope you all are keeping up with your housekeeping inside and out!

You may have some unexpected company this month, and we’re not talking about crazy Uncle Harry and Aunt Prudence. We’re talking, gulp, mice and rats who will be looking for home in your garage and house. Seal holes in the foundation-especially those around pipes and wires- and look for places where they might sneak in. An easy way is to plug holes with steel wool. Make sure doors fit at the bottom. Have your fireplace and chimney inspected and cleaned before lighting fires. Test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, and replace batteries.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!!

July- AC?

July 6th, 2011 · No Comments

It was  a rainy June in Southeast Minnesota in July be ready to crank up the air conditioner.  Make sure the condensation drip tube flows freely.  Take time to update your emergency kit! Don’t have one? Then make one. Experts recommend a three-day supply of drinking water and food you don’t have to refrigerate or cook, first aid supplies, a portable radio, wrench and other basic tools, flashlight, work gloves, emergency cooking equipment, lanterns, fresh batteries for equipment, clothing, blankets, baby items, prescription medications, extra car and house keys, eyeglasses, credit cards and cash, important documents such as insurance policies.  This emergency kit should be available to you year round but this summer if there is a big summer storm and lose power  you will be set!!!

June- Getting ready for stars and stripes

June 8th, 2011 · No Comments

Before you hang up your flag for the forth make sure your flag pole holder is secure! As you are half way through the year check that list you made and see how you are doing?  Rethink your list by moving some projects around and adding a few more projects.  Then look at all those  “once a year” chores, such as cleaning behind the fridge, checking the water hoses for the washing machine, checking for small leaks under the sink and the dishwasher and testing circuit breakers. If you haven’t already label the breakers so you’ll know what switch controls what part of the house!!
