March 2014 Staging Tip of the Month

For the second time this year, we have arrived at a vacant home to destage it and have found the heat not working and the pipes frozen.  Both times it was because of a dead battery in the thermostat.  A very simple fix could have saved the homeowners a lot of stress, time and money!!!  Even if you are just leaving your home for the weekend, please check your thermostat to make sure the battery isn’t going dead!  And if you’re selling a vacant home, make sure to check on it weekly!
