Most of us in the Capital Region were spared once again from the nasty storms that hit some areas. It is however very cold but since we are expecting milder days by the weekend, it might be a good time to get out there and clean up the exterior of the house. Rake up the leaves, clean out the flower beds and clip down your perennials. Maybe your lawn could use one last cut. Look at your house with a critical eye. Does the front door need a fresh coat of paint or perhaps the mailbox post. Do you have torn screens or just areas that have been neglected. Make a list of things that you can get to in early spring if you can't do them now. Make sure your house looks neat and tidy on the outside.
If you decide at some point that you want to sell your house, your neighbors will think about your well maintained home and maybe tell friends or family about it.
