New Year, Clean Home: Three Things to Deep Clean for 2020


The New Year is officially underway and the holiday season has come to a close. What better excuse is there to finish any nagging cleaning tasks and start the new year with a perfectly clean home? If you are wondering where to get started, here are a few spots in your home that are likely in need of a deep clean.

The Oven:
A mainstay of the kitchen, this highly-used appliance can accumulate plenty of grime throughout the year. A mix of water, baking soda, and dish soap can work wonders on its interior.

The Fridge:
Spills, crumbs, and all matter of food scraps can easily find their way into the nooks and crannies of your fridge’s interior. If you haven’t had a chance to give your fridge a good deep cleaning in 2019, now is the time!

The edges of your windows, particularly the tracks on sliding windows, are prime candidates for mold. Vinegar and good old-fashioned elbow grease are all it takes to get those windows looking as good as new.

Northwest Multiple Listing Service


Eager home buyers were plentiful in December but their choices were meager

“The buyers are out there and are showing up at open houses and making multiple offers on new listings,” was how one industry leader summarized December’s housing activity involving members of the Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

Frank Wilson, Kitsap regional manager and branch managing broker at John L. Scott Real Estate in Poulsbo, also said the severe shortage of inventory – “much lower than in years past” – will lead to continued buyer frustration and escalating home values. He noted one of his colleagues added a new listing the day after Christmas and it quickly drew 11 offers.
