Home WiFi - Haring Realty

With many adults working from home, the demands on your WiFi are probably much greater than in the past. You could be trying to connect with colleagues over Zoom while several kids are watching online lessons from their teachers. And with everyone stuck at home a lot more, several family members could be streaming movies or other content during the evening. As a result, your WiFi could be slow or disconnecting much more than it did in the past.

Our REALTORS® suggest the following tips for making sure your WiFi is up to the task:

  • Check your Internet service plan
    Your internet service plan may have been fine for your needs earlier in the year, but now that more users are logging more screen time, you should make sure it covers your current needs. If you have only two users with only one streaming video or attending a teleconference, a medium speed is the lowest level recommended. For multiple people — with at least two using video — advanced speed is needed.

Problem Noises - Homeowners - Haring Realty

Do you hear that noise? Your home is trying to tell you something!

Believe it or not, some sounds are scarier than those that go bump in the night. The creeks, cracks, squeaks, and scratches that you hear around the house shouldn't be ignored. While some of these issues are minor, others are indicative of destructive and dangerous problems. Our REALTORS® suggest investigating and resolving these annoying noises ASAP. 

9 Household Noises & How to Fix Them  

  1. Whistling
    Do you hear a whistling sound in certain rooms? Don't worry, it's not a ghost, but it could be one of two other issues — either your furnace or your windows. A furnace that makes a sucking or whistling sounds means it's working too hard because of dirty filters. Replacing them with new, clean filters will stop the sound. A whistling window means your weatherstripping is loose and needs to be resealed.

Low-Cost Home Projects - Haring Realty

There's never been a better time to tackle DIY projects. These simple home upgrades will revitalize your space—something we can all use right now—at little or no cost to you.

  • Eliminate Clutter
    It's spring, and we all have some cleaning to do. Getting rid of clutter is a great way to revive your space and make your home feel more open and spacious. Go through every room and gather up items that you don't need, never use, and are tired of looking at. Some can be tucked away in storage or given away, while others can be donated. If all goes well, you might even be able to have a big yard sale soon!
