Is Your House Affecting Your Love Life?

by Tom Stachler,ABR,CDPE - Group One Realty Team

In lieu of Valentine’s Day, we’ve dug into the truth of whether your current housing situation is helping or hurting your love life. Does homeownership = marriage material? Are your roommates or parents affecting your romantic relationships? 


The website house Method surveyed single men and women about deal breakers and turn-offs of a dating prospect's Home. If you're not having luck in the love department, your living situation could be the culprit. 


Here is a fact: For the first time in 130 years, more young adults live with their parents than live with partners.  In fact, 32% of adults aged 18–34 live with their parents.


With so many young adults living with parents, is the dating pool accepting the situation? Well, more than 83% of women surveyed say that they would not date a partner who lives with their parents, and 63% of men say the same.


What about roommates? Only 20 percent of women say that a partner having a roommate is a deal breaker in a dating relationship, while 39 percent of men say that a roommate situation would be enough to call it off.

If you live on your own and are still not attracting the right partner, it could be what is inside your home. Women and men seem to have similar turn offs. Women and men alike don't like seeing guns on display and a junky home both ranking as the two highest no-nos. Ranking in the middle of highest turn offs for both sexes is empty alcohol bottles and politically affiliated decor. At the bottom, 5th biggest turn-off, lies a difference for men and women. Women don't like Disney paraphernalia while men don't like to see small pets (like a hamster or gerbil). Now, we're not saying get rid of your pet, but perhaps if you have a messy home or weapons out, work on getting those issues handled before your next date. 


Happy Valentine's Day!

Extreme Cold Weather Safety Tips

by Tom Stachler,ABR,CDPE - Group One Realty Team

How to Keep Warm in Your Home


  • Have your furnace inspected before cold weather arrives. Inspect the heat exchanger for cracks, install a new air filter, and check the thermostat to see if it’s working properly.
  • Inspect fireplaces, and chimneys before using, and make sure they are clean.
  • Keep drapes and blinds closed, unless windows are in direct sunlight.
  • Put up storm windows, or install sheet plastic window insulation kits on the inside of windows.
  • Cover or remove any window air conditioners.
  • Insulate electrical outlets and switches on exterior walls with foam seals available at home centers.
  • Caulk any cracks or holes on the outside of your house.
  • Repair or replace weather stripping and areas around doors and windows.
  • Run ceiling fans on low in reverse (clockwise when looking up) to circulate warm air around the house.
  • Put draft snakes on window sills, between window frames, and against doors- anything with openings.
  • If you heat with propane or fuel oil, make sure the tank is full.
  • If you heat with wood or coal, have plenty of fuel on hand.

How to Stay Safe in an Ice or Snow Storm

  • Stockpile nonperishable food and water.
  • Refill prescription medications in advance of storm.
  • Fill car with gas. Have a snow brush in the vehicle. 
  • Charge cell phones fully.
  • Have flashlights, batteries, non-perishable foods, and a manual can opener on hand.
  • A portable generator can come in handy if the lights go out, but take precautions to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning when using.
  • Make sure you have working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and the batteries powering them will last.
  • Have a working fire extinguisher on hand for emergencies.
  • A chain saw can come in handy for removing broken limbs after an ice storm.
