Draft-Proofing Your Home From Winter Winds


Did you know that draft-proofing your home can not only help you have a cozier winter but also lower your energy bill? Drafts can occur when there are unsealed openings to the outside that let your warm air out and nature’s cold air in. As we enter increasingly colder months, those irritating drafts and inflated heating bills can make for an uncomfortable winter.

For the most part, draft-proofing your home is a surprisingly easy fix that can make a world of difference. Windows and doors are the most common places to find drafts, but you can also find them in attics too. Weatherstrips are an inexpensive fix that can help you seal the edges of doors and windows from the cold. If you have a particularly drafty door, a new door sweep is another great option that is worth looking into. Whichever route you take, your heating bill is sure to thank you!

Northwest Multiple Listing Service


Sparse supply spurring more competition among motivated home buyers in Western Washington

“People are moving here, home prices will continue to increase, inventory shortages will occur. That’s our future,” remarked Dick Beeson, principal managing broker at RE/MAX Northwest in Gig Harbor, upon viewing the October statistics from Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

Active listings of homes and condos totaled 14,379, the lowest level since April. Compared to a year ago, last month’s selection declined more than 21% and was down 10% from September, according to the new report from Northwest MLS. The year-over-year and month-to-month volume of new listings also declined last month. On a positive note, MLS figures show system-wide gains in October’s pending sales (up nearly 5.6%), closed sales (up 4.1%) and prices (up nearly 7.7%) compared to a year ago.
