Cooler Weather

  • Image result for fall leaves clip art

In November we will definitely see cooler weather. It tends to come slower her in Southern Utah, as it sometimes happens. Because of this, we encourage our tenants to be aware of their responsibility to keep the furnace/air filters clean, to keep the yards clear of leaves and other debris, all hoses are disconnected from outside faucets and that those outside faucets are covered to prevent freezing and to ensure that windows are in good working order.

Everyone benefits when simple steps are taken to ensure that the property where you live is prepared for winter.

Making Your House A Home

Although this is now your home, it is still not your property. What is very important is that you do not alter your residence permanently or physically without permission. Find other ways you can make changes without altering the property.

Use Area Rugs
Consider buying an area rug that will produce the look that you like and lessen the existing color scheme. Just make sure that the underside of the carpet will not damage the existing flooring – you may need to use an appropriate carpet pad. Also, ensure that the area rug will not cause someone a possible injury by sliding, slipping, or rolling.

Use Mirrors
Perhaps the room looks small; strategically hanging mirrors can make a room seem larger. Use them to reflect an interesting object or plant. If you have a heavy mirror (or any object), check with your property manager on what is the proper method to hang it without causing damage.

Use Plants
Plants are not only a great way to add color and decoration, but can improve your health because they improve air quality. Make sure they have the right light, are watered regularly, and sit in waterproof containers that do not leak onto flooring or furniture.

Your residence does not have to look like a “rental.” With some time, thought, and a few dollars, you can give a house “your personal look” and make it your home.

Road Safety Tips for Trick-or-Treaters and Drivers

Halloween can be a fun night for kids of any age. To help ensure your evening is full of planned scares and frights, here are some road safety tips for you and your kids to consider.

Safety for Pedestrians
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Halloween night can be a dangerous night for pedestrians.
• Make sure your child takes along a working flashlight or an abundant number of glow sticks to help ensure they’re visible to others.
• Don’t let your kids leave home without a fully charged cellphone so they can call for help in the event of an emergency. You may also want to remind your children to keep their heads up and put their phones and other devices down, especially when crossing the street.
• Tell your kids to walk only on sidewalks and, if there is not a sidewalk available, to walk against the flow of traffic and as far away from the road as possible.
• Be sure that any costume your child wears on Halloween night doesn’t impede their vision or pose a tripping hazard.
• Don’t send your kids under the age of 12 out trick-or-treating by themselves. If they resist because they don’t want to be seen with mom or dad, wear a costume. It’s Halloween. You can get away with it.
• Set a curfew for your older children, and decide on a predetermined route so you’ll know their approximate whereabouts.

Driving Safely
Helping ensure safety on Halloween isn’t entirely up to the kids doing the trick-or-treating. If you’re going to be out on the road on Halloween night, keep your eyes peeled and be alert for kids who may be excited about the holiday and out later than usual. Consider slowing your driving down, especially when making your way through suburban neighborhoods. Never assume that a child in a costume can see you. Make sure to also eliminate any distractions while driving so you can better focus on the road. Being cautious and following these road safety tips may help everyone enjoy the spooky festivities of this ghoulish night.

Hidden Gem

Country Living Magazine recently ran an article on what they called an “up and coming” vacation town, our very own Hurricane, Utah.

According to the article, demand for Hurricane (vacation) rental properties rose 199% between 2015 and 2016. “But we totally get the under-the-radar appeal of this small town—which is pronounced “Her-ah-kun” by locals, by the way—located just 30 minutes west of Zion National Park in southeastern Utah.”

Vacation rentals range from $179 a night to $450 a night, depending on the rental size, particularly how many bedrooms. With its close proximity to Zion’s National Park, Hurricane is a perfect place for your next vacation!
