Oh, don't forget to create and practice an emergency escape route with all family members.
Have a certain place to meet at if you can't get together in the house.
Please stress to everyone to stay low to the floor and just get out.
Don't try to take anything with you.
Fires spread much quicker and intensifies more rapidly than most of us can imagine. Most often you only have a couple of minutes at most, sometimes only seconds. Be safe.
Sometimes, your local fire department will gladly come by to give you fire safety tips about your home and help create an escape route. The kids will be very impressed to say the least!
Special Note: As soon as you have a contract call your insurance agent to make sure there won't be any problems getting insurance coverage for the property you want. Unfortunately, there have been problems getting insurance in order to close the sale.
Also, it's wise to install carbon monoxide detectors too. And keep a supply of batteries, flashlights in each room, ready to use when needed.
Check or test all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors monthly and
replace the batteries if needed!
We look forward to being your trusted real estate partner.
