Hello February

Almost balmy temps in comparison with recent days.  And no wind!

Other than the ice encrusted jetty…it looks like a summer day ;)

Transfer and Rental Inspections

Both Avalon and Stone Harbor require fire safety inspections for every rental property, and prior to the transfer of ownership.

Common causes for inspection failure:

smokeDetec1) extension cords

2) smoke or carbon monoxide detectors more that 10 years old (hardwired units MUST be replaced with new hardwired units)

3) non-functioning GFI receptacles within 6′ of sinks

4) propane gas grill on the deck

Better to trouble shoot prior to the inspection and avoid re-inspection fees.

Back to Normal…

Well, for January!  Flurries and sunshine this morning.  A light coating of snow.  And, it’s COLD.

Stormy Night Ahead

Only rain so far in Avalon and Stone Harbor, NJ.  Earlier, I checked out the inlet without getting completely drenched from the ocean spray (just a little salty!)

Will post snow pictures (??) tomorrow on Twitter.

Weather?

Winter weather at the shore is a roller coaster of temperatures and conditions.

The wind is a huge factor of course:  north west = COLD; north east = stormy/damp; south west = a winter reprieve; and south east  = a chilly spring like day.

Still worthwhile to dress accordingly…and enjoy the views!

Shore House Odors

Yesterday, I previewed a totally renovated townhouse on the bay.  Custom kitchen and baths, beautiful wood floors, attractive furnishings…AND a plug in air freshener that took my breath away!

The owner may believe the scent adds to the appeal, but I assume it’s covering up a problem.   And potential buyers could have the same reaction.

dampridShore properties are closed up for long periods of time.  Plug in air fresheners (even the scented oil diffusers) are just too strong for the space.

If you want to eliminate a damp smell (after confirming it’s not caused by water issues in the crawl space or a leak), I suggest Damp Rid.

The crystals absorb moisture and remove musty smells without adding a fake, perfume odor.

Potential tenants, buyers…and their real estate agents…will appreciate the difference!
