Keeping Busy and Productive

The corona virus has everyone concerned.  It’s a whole new lifestyle for the next three weeks at least.  While we cannot control what is going on in the world, we can at least make our own world as comfortable as possible and keep busy and productive.

With all the kids home from pre-school to college, it’s a challenge to keep everyone busy, especially the younger kids.

What can we do to keep them busy and productive?

Keep to a schedule.  A general wake up time, and bedtime, time for chores, time for some schoolwork and  time for play. Taking a walk is a great idea or just getting outside to play games. Fresh air is great for everybody.  Just plan to keep away from other groups if you are at the park or playground.  If you can, staying in your own neighborhood might be a better idea.

It’s a great time to catch up on some movies or shows you might be waiting to watch but don’t overdue it.  Limit screen time on video games and social media.

Now’s a great time to bring out the old fashioned board games and puzzles. A family game night can be a great idea.

It’s also a great idea to try out some new crafts or projects you’ve been interested in. You can try out some new cooking recipes.  The kids can be a great help and can turn it into a learning experience.

Giving them time to just play with toys and use their imagination is also a great activity.  In our busy lives, these are the activities that we never seem to find time for.  Even take out the old home movies and have a fun night reminiscing.

We are all navigating this new norm for the time being.  We can try to make it a time to bond with our families and relish in a slow down and more time together like a family sit-down dinner at night.

Agent Rising is concerned with our community and our neighbors.  Our online courses can help you start your real estate career, earn your continuing education credits, move up to broker, or achieve designations.  Now might be a great time to consider signing up.  Visit www.agentrising.com for more information or call 508-997-8844 or Kate Lanagan MacGregor at 508-728-3648

spring lawn care

Spring Lawn Care Tips

Spring Lawn Care Tips

Spring is rapidly approaching.  We may still get some snow but it will likely melt quickly.  Now is a great time to start thinking about spring landscaping maintenance.

The snowdrops and crocuses are starting to spring up and green daffodil shoots are sprouting up through the leaves.  Now is the time to start working on your landscaping.

Start by raking the lawn and flowerbeds.  Rake up the fall leaves, dead grass and sticks that have fallen down from the trees with the high winds. Uncover all the green shoots hidden under the leaves in your flowerbeds.  It may be a good time to add fresh mulch to your flowerbeds.  Weed and then mulch.

Test your soil ph and fertilize your lawn accordingly. Weed and feed but don’t overdo it.

Aerate your lawn so water and nutrients are better absorbed.  There are many ways to do this.  You can opt for aeration shoes and get some exercise or rent a larger tool.

Fill in any bare spots in the lawn.  Rake them up and dig up the soil a little. If needed, add loam and reseed.  Keep the seeds wet and watered. Pick the right seeds for your area of the country.

Now is the time to get the lawn mower out and have it serviced or check the fluids and fuel yourself.  Drain any old fuel out which has set all winter.

Wait to cut the grass until it is tall enough.  Cutting too short and too often is not good for the lawn. Always cut the top third of the blade of grass and don’t bag it.  If you mow on a regular basis, the clippings are good for the lawn.

It’s a great time of year to get outside and work on your landscaping and keep your home looking it’s best for spring.

Have you always dreamed of becoming a real estate agent and helping clients buy or sell their homes.  Spring is a great time to get started.  Start with our online courses and finish with LIVE hours to finish your requirements to sit for your real estate exam.  Our Rise Welcome Center in Mattapoisett is busy with students preparing for their real estate license.

realtor safety

Realtor Safety Issues

Realtor safety is always an important issue. It’s always a good time to revisit steps to prevent tragedy. Realtors can be put in dangerous situations during Open Houses and showings and need to be aware of steps to take to keep themselves safe.   Here are some tips for common realtor situations.

Make sure at least one personal contact and your office knows where you are at all times.  You should let them know where you will be and when you feel you will be done.  Check in when you move on.

Meet new clients at the office first before any private showings.  Have them complete a client information sheet and copy their driver’s license and vehicle information.

Open Houses:  Have another realtor or co-worker share the duties with you and set up a sign in sheet with client’s information.

During open houses and showings, let your client proceed you through the house, especially when going down into the basement or upstairs.  Keep them in your line of vision at all times.

Park on the street to be able to leave easily.  Do not let a client block you in the driveway.  Drive around the neighborhood and acquaint yourself with the layout,  be aware of the easiest and fastest exit routes.

Know all the exits to the home and make sure they are all unlocked.

Leave your purse and valuables in the trunk of your car and have your cell phone in your hand.  Leave the expensive jewelry at home.

Never allow a client into your car unless you know them very well and feel very  comfortable.

Check out the safety apps for your phone.  Have the local police department saved on your phone and have them ready to respond at the touch of a button.

Last but not least, trust your gut.  If a situation makes you uncomfortable or makes you uneasy, remove yourself  and reschedule.  Your job is not worth your safety.

winter storm

Winter Storm Tips

Even though it may seem like we’ve had a pretty easy winter so far, yesterday’s wind storm reminded us that we still have a lot of winter left whatever the Groundhog says.

The high winds and rain left many roads impassable with downed trees resulting in many power outages throughout the Southcoast.

While we can’t change the weather, here are some tips to be prepared for the next winter storm.

Keep an eye on the weather and weather alerts so you are not caught off guard when the next storm hits.

Check your home’s ability to keep out the cold, such as weatherstripping, insulation, and caulking to prevent frozen pipes and heat loss.

Make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are all in working order.  Replace batteries if needed. These can be life-saving during a storm.

Loss of power is always a given.  Make sure you  stock up on essentials and flashlights with batteries. You may want to fill your tub for toilet flushing if you have a well.  Better yet, consider investing in a generator which can get you through many days without electricity.

Consider your elderly family and neighbors also.  Check on them and make sure they are ok and if they need assistance with any chores, especially snow shoveling.

Winter is still with us for a couple of months, so it’s always better to be prepared.

Agent Rising Real Estate School has your back and has everything you need to start your real estate career.  We also offer continuing education credits and classes for seasoned agents.  This includes broker and designation classes.
