Saturday's show was focused on Getting your House Ready for Fall and Winter. With the beautiful brisk air of Fall in the air, it's time to think about getting ready for fall and winter.  Pretty soon we'll all be spending more time indoors and less likely to tackle outdoor tasks when the weather changes.  So, now is the perfect time to prepare while the fall air is still not only comfortable but really delightful. We talked about some things that homeowners may want to do in and around the house to get ready for the new season.  And, also this is a good time to check on a few areas in the home as preventative maintenance.  There is a list of reminders that should prove helpful, and they are available on the website at www.openhousewithdena.com.

Saturday's show was the third in a three part series on Rental property and we were talking about Useful information for Landlords. With so many foreclosures and short sales, many have found themselves in a good position to enter into the Income Producing Property Business of owning and managing rental property.  The trouble is that this can be a money-losing instead of money making situation if not managed correctly and that is why we were addressing that subject. With so many homes on the market not selling and changes due to the economy, many people have become landlords as a last resort when they aren't able to sell their homes and need to relocate or scale down as part of their adjustment to this new situation. If you are managing your own property and choosing your tenants, it is...
