5 Ways to Lower Your Heating Bill | Haring Realty

It's the season to keep an eagle-eye on the weather forecast and wonder if you can wear more than one sweater at a time. As fall turns to winter, the environmentally-conscious and budget-minded alike start thinking about energy efficiency. And our REALTORS® regularly encounter homebuyers concerned about heating efficiency in the homes they view during the colder months. Whether you're looking to sell your home or stay comfortable in the one you have, a few hints on smart heating use will save you money and make those chilly winter nights a little cozier.

  • Keep Those Home (Furnace) Fires Burning 
    Furnaces don't require much in the way of upkeep and are built to last 15 years or more. But neglecting basic maintenance can make your furnace less efficient and possibly shorten its life. Change the air filters on your furnace before you begin using heat in the fall and at least once during the winter. Having your furnace professionally inspected before you turn on the heat in autumn can help you spot problems before they literally leave you in the cold.

Holiday Crafts and Activities for Christmas Break | Haring Realty

The holidays are often associated with days and nights spent enjoying the company of friends and family. With COVID-19 having been the highlight of 2020, large holiday gatherings are being discouraged. But that doesn't mean that you and your quarantine partners can't enjoy the holiday season. From making a Christmas card to baking your favorite Christmas cookies, there are many crafts and activities that will bring the cheery spirit, keep your little ones entertained, and allow them to show their creativity. Here are our REALTORS® suggestions for crafts and activities that you can do with your kids over Christmas break at home.

  • Cut Paper Snowflakes
    Making paper snowflakes is a fun activity that's easy to set up and execute. All you need are two essential supplies: paper and a pair of scissors. You probably have paper lying around in the house, but buying some origami paper or some colored construction paper can add some artistic flair and make the project more interesting. You can learn the basics of making paper snowflakes online, and once you're done, you can tape the snowflakes to the wall or hang them on the Christmas tree.

Holiday Decorating - Mansfield, OH - Haring Realty

A lot of people will be celebrating the holiday season differently this year. To reduce the spread of COVID-19, many families are choosing to stay at home and are having get-togethers via video chat. Just because you aren't entertaining in a traditional way, it doesn't mean you shouldn't decorate your home for the holidays. Our REALTORS® know that this is a challenging time for everyone, including those with Mansfield homes for sale. Whether you're buying, selling or staying put, these tips for creative holiday decorating can lift your spirits and put you in a festive mood.

  • Go Green
    Exploring eco-friendly décor isn't just good for the planet—it's a fun way to mix things up and let your imagination run wild. Two cool sustainable ideas for holiday decorating are wrapping presents in fabric instead of paper or using brown paper bags for wrapping paper. It's a great way to get kids involved—they can use colored pencils or markers to create their own designs on the outside of the paper.

Holiday Home Sale - Haring Realty

At Haring Realty, our REALTORS® are looking forward to spending time with friends and family this holiday season. But many sellers are motivated to move fast, and Mansfield homes for sale shouldn't wait – we're on the case all through Thanksgiving and beyond.

Some sellers feel intimidated at the thought of staying on the market over the holidays. They wonder if their home will sell and if showings will put a dent in their holiday plans. But if you're intent on selling as soon as you can, don't shy away from sticking to your plan!

With the right real estate agent at your side, a holiday sale can be worth it!

Every seller has their own goals, and those goals usually include a fast, lucrative sale. Ideally, you don't want your home to be on the market longer than 60 days, and 30 is even better. Luckily, today's unique housing market situation makes it much easier than ever to sell over the holidays.
