Get Ready for Vacation

beachatsunsetA great article from RISMedia about preparing your home for your vacation. Briefly–

–Clean up – empty the frig, take out the trash, do laundry, run the garbage disposal

–Close out – weatherize, unplug small appliances, check smoke detectors, leave closet doors open

–Secure – collect spare keys from around the home, hold mail & newspapers, close blinds, ask a neighbor to check your house occasionally.

For a full list of ‘to-do’s and further details, go to How To Prepare Your Home Before Going on Vacation.

And, if you’re vacationing on Whidbey Island and find that you really want to live here, stop by the local Coldwell Banker Tara Properties office and talk to one of our Real Estate Brokers. We’re happy to help.

Erl Bangston, our founder

This month marks the 39th anniversary of the beginning of Coldwell Banker Tara Properties. Erl Bangston started Tara Properties way back in 1975 and we’ve been a successful real estate company on Whidbey Island ever since. Our experienced and knowledgeable agents have helped thousands of folks buy their dream homes and gotten them top dollar when they decided to sell. Through our Community Fund, we’ve helped non-profits, people in need, and provided scholarships for high school students on their way to college. Tara Properties became Coldwell Banker Tara Properties in 1995. By associating with this global company, we extended our reach to aid those buyers coming from afar and sellers relocating to a distant town.

We’re ready to start our next 39 years on Whidbey Island.
