The millennial generation (which is defined as people between the ages of 19 and 35) is the largest in US history, and currently, they’re also the largest in driving homeownership growth.

According to a recent report from financial services company First American, the millennial generation had a huge impact on the housing market in 2018. While millennials still have lower homeownership rates than Baby Boomers or Gen Xers, millennial homeownership rose 1.2 percentage points year over year in Q3 2018—which made households under the age of 35 a larger contributor to homeownership growth than any other generation.

If you’re thinking about putting your house on the market, obviously you want to do everything you can to increase the value before you sell. And if you want to add to that value without breaking the bank? Try a little paint.

According to Zillow’s 2018 Paint Colors Analysis, which analyzed the effects different paint colors had on home values, choosing the right paint colors—and incorporating those paint colors in the right way—can make a huge difference when you list your home.

A local heating and cooling company has shared this:

Monday night through Thursday we all will experience temperatures and wind chills that our homes' heating systems are NOT designed for. -20 to -30-degree temperatures with wind chills into -40 and up to -50+.

Newer homes will struggle to maintain temperature and older homes will NOT maintain temperature and the temperature WILL drop while the heating system is working at full capacity.

1. Please raise the temperature in your home on Monday, 2 to 4 degrees above your normal setting.
2. Take all programmable thermostats out of setback mode and set on a permanent HOLD.
3. If you have a furnace; replace the filter. 
4. Keep garage doors closed. 
5. Limit opening exterior doors.
6. Make sure air vents and
