14 Ways to Protect Your Home in Sub-Zero Temperatures

14 Ways to Protect Your Home in Sub-Zero Temperatures

Are you nervous about the pipes freezing in your home?

Are you planning to put your house on the market in the spring, but are concerned that your landscaping will be ruined from harsh winter weather?

There is no hiding the fact that it is extremely cold outside in the Detroit metropolitan area. According to Weather.com, today’s high for Northville, Michigan is 2 degrees Fahrenheit, and the low is 0 degrees. In Novi, Michigan, the numbers look similar with a high of 2° and a low of -1°. On top of the freezing temperatures, there is also a chance of snow today.

Michigan residents are accustomed to harsh winters, but temperatures this extreme raise a number of questions when it comes to protecting homes from damage including:

  • How do we keep our pipes from bursting in sub-zero temperatures?
  • How far should you place a space heater from something combustible?
  • How do I protect my landscaping from winter damage?

These are great questions, and we will answer them below as we provide you with 14 ways to protect your home from sub-zero temperatures.

14 Tips for Protecting Your Home in Sub-Zero Temperatures

  1. Keep your attached garage door closed as much as possible to minimize cold air from entering your house.
  2. To make sure your newly installed outdoor plumbing doesn’t freeze, shut off the water to your outdoor faucets, and then drain the water from the pipes leading to the outside faucets.
  3. Be certain that you know where the water shut off valve is in your home. This way, if a pipe does burst, you know exactly where to go to shut off water.
  4. If you plan to leave your home for an extended period of time and wonder what temperature you should set your home’s thermostat to, NBC Washington recommends to set it no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. If you are using space heaters inside your house, make sure they are at least 3 feet away from anything combustible.
  6. Don’t forget to have your local utility phone number available before you actually need it. Hopefully, you won’t have to use it, but if you do, you will not have to search for it.
  7. Let your faucets drip. If you have any pipes that are located on outside walls that you think could freeze, let your indoor faucets drip. Turn both the cold and hot water on a slow drip.
  8. Another tip for your pipes is to keep the cabinets open. This way whenever the heating system turns on, your pipes will be warmed up.
  9. Clear out your gutters. By doing this, you will help to minimize the risk of ice buildup on your roof.
  10. Check around your home on the outside and in. If you find a crack or even a hole, the Weather Channel recommends filling it in with caulk.
  11. If you do discover a frozen pipe, remember that it can be damaging to try and thaw it with an open flame. Instead, try a hair dryer.
  12. To reduce heat loss, close your drapes and blinds at night. During the day, open them to allow the natural warmth from the sun.
  13. Come spring, your trees and shrubs will thank you if you shake off any heavy snow from them now.
  14. If you have a newly planted tree or shrub, install 4 stakes around and enclose it was a burlap sack.

Bonus Tips

  1. If your car battery is dead, do not try to jump-start it while it is still frozen. That could lead to the battery rupturing or exploding.
  2. Keep your car’s gas tank above half way full to avoid freezing.
  3. If you have any pets, keep them inside.
  4. If you decide to head out outside today, dress warm and in loose fitting clothing.

When sub-zero temperatures hit, using practical tips will help you to protect your home from damage. The good news is that warmer weather is on the horizon. From all of us at the Jamey Kramer Group, please stay warm and stay safe.

Foreclosure Crisis Comes to an End

by The Jamey Kramer Group

Good News

Have you seen less and less foreclosure signs in your neighborhood?

Will There Be More Foreclosures in 2014?

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas Eve everyone! The holidays are always an exciting time of year. They are a time to celebrate, relax and to be thankful. It is also a great time to be with friends and loved ones.

We wanted to share with you something that you and your loved ones, and actually any American, can celebrate this holiday season. On this Christmas Eve, we would like to share fantastic news about the housing market.

According to an article published by the Detroit Free Press, Daren Blomquist, RealtyTrac vice president stated,

        “The depth and breadth of the decrease provides strong evidence that we are entering the ninth inning of this foreclosure crisis."

No one will contest that the last 5 years have been difficult. Prior to this housing crisis, foreclosures were an uncommon occurrence. Then suddenly, many Americans saw foreclosure signs pop up in their own neighborhoods. Since 2006, over 7.7 million homes fell into foreclosure, went through a short sale or were lost in a home distressed sale.

Good News

The good news to celebrate this holiday is that the season of foreclosure is coming to an end.

The Statistics

If you are like me, you are probably thinking, “that sounds good, but where are the numbers?” In the same Detroit Free Press article, we learned that November proved to be a great month. Foreclosure activity was down by 37% from a year ago in November. That is the lowest foreclosure numbers we have seen since December 2005.

Even Better News

Michigan was not even one of the states with the highest foreclosure rates. Those states were: Florida, Delaware, Maryland, Illinois and South Carolina.

The article also pointed out that there might be a little fight from foreclosures during this coming year. However, it was reported that a foreclosure comeback that could threaten the housing recovery was “highly unlikely”.

What Does This Mean For You?

This positive news means that right now or sometime in 2014 might be the perfect time for you to move into your dream home. You may have been waiting and stayed in a home that your family has outgrown. Now is the ideal time to take the next step and start looking for your next house.

Michigan is the perfect state to do that in. With lower costs of living and the rebounding economy, you can get a lot of home for your money. Cities like Northville and Novi, Michigan offer a small town feeling while being close to a big city. If you have any questions about moving into these areas or if you are eager to start looking, please call our office at 248-348-7200. We would be honored to help.

Have a wonderful holiday week everyone, and please make sure to visit this page on Thursday if you would like to know where to go out for New Year’s Eve.

Northville Public Schools Named to 2013 AP District of the Year Honor Roll

by The Jamey Kramer Group

2013 AP District of the Year Honor Roll

Are you looking to move to a school district that provides its students with the ability to succeed?

While you’re looking for new homes, are good schools on your list of “must haves”?

Almost every future homeowner that walks into my office has a list of “must haves.”  If having a family is an option for this future homeowner, great schools are a top priority on that “must have” list. All parents want the best for their children, and it is completely understandable why great schools are a main concern.

Northville, Michigan’s highly acclaimed schools is one of the many reasons why I enjoy selling homes in Northville, Michigan. With Northville Public Schools again making headlines for being named to the College Board’s 2013 AP District of the Year Honor Roll, I would like to share a more in depth spotlight on this highly desirable award.

2013 AP District of the Year Honor Roll

The College Board released the 2013 AP District of the Year Honor Roll that includes a list of 539 schools districts across the United States and Canada. This distinct recognition is awarded to school districts that have increased access to Advanced Placement® course work while increasing the percentage of students that earn scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. AP or Advance placement courses are courses that allow students to engage in college level courses and earn college credits.

In order to be included, the district must have completed 3 components.

  1. The district must increase participation or access to advance placement courses by 11% in small districts, 6% in medium districts, and 4% in large districts.
  2. Access to these advance placement courses must be available to all students. To ensure this, the percentage of Hispanic/Latino, African American, and American Indian/Alaska Native students who are taking advance placement exams cannot decrease by 10% or more in a small district and 5% or more in a large or medium district.
  3. Lastly, the school district is required to improve the students’ performance levels. This is measured by percentage of students scoring a 3 or higher on an AP exam compared to the previous scores unless the school district has already reached a performance level more that 70% of advance placement students who have scored 3 or higher.

As you can see, it is quite an impressive honor for a school district to make it on the list.

Who Put This List Together?

The College Board is the not-for-profit organization that put this honor roll together. According to the organization’s website,

The College Board is a mission-driven not-for-profit organization that connects students to college success and opportunity. Founded in 1900, the College Board was created to expand access to higher education. Today, the membership association is made up of over 6,000 of the world’s leading educational institutions and is dedicated to promoting excellence and equity in education.”

Northville, Michigan is a highly desirable place to live and raise a family with great schools and beautiful homes. If you would like to start looking at homes in the Northville area, please give my office a call. I would love to help you find the home of your dreams.

Is Northville, Michigan a Good Place to Live?

by The Jamey Kramer Group

Northville, Michigan

Are you looking to settle down in a safe city?

When I was growing up, it was normal for mothers to say, “Come home before the street lights turn on.” I would run around the neighborhood with my friends or play in the huge neighborhood game of capture the flag. Back then, our parents had a peace of mind knowing that we were safe.

The answer to that question is obviously yes for every parent. Nothing is more important than keeping our children safe. Nowadays, many parents do not have the same sense of security that their parents had while raising a family.

It wasn’t too long ago when we published an article entitled, Northville, Michigan - Great Schools, Low Crime and Small Town Charm. In that article, we highlighted the appeal of Northville’s low crime rate. However, according to the FBI’s 2012 Crime Stats for Northville, Michigan, crime is even lower.
