effort to improve fire safety at home. This spring, Canadians have a chance to improve by thinking twice about how they can make their homes less hazardous – and taking action that could prevent a real fire emergency. Fire hazards around the home can be found not just inside your house but also in the garage, in the garden or on the patio, so take your

time and be thorough. Potential hazards outdoors can include flammable debris near the chimney or a barbecue, such as leaves or newspapers, as well as empty solvent, cleaner or fuel containers in the garage that could be combustible. Indoors, check for debris in fireplaces or storage areas, and have your home heating system checked by a licensed professional. Also check and clean air filters or exhaust vents above your stove. Here are some other areas to focus on to improve home fire safety during your spring cleaning project: • Ensure that stairways and landings are clear, to provide a safe exit in case of an emergency. • Test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms for proper functioning and replace alarm batteries at least annually. • Outdoors, check trees and bushes and trim branches before they grow enough to interfere with power lines or electrical outlets.

How to choose your real estate agent Buying or selling a property is a transaction that demands a lot of attention; that’s why you want to choose an agent who will help you and give the advice you need to make the right decisions. This is one of the most important events in your life. Here are several things to think about as you choose your real estate agent. First, limit your choice to three or four agents so you don’t waste your time in searching. Next, see if his attitude is casual or dynamic. Is he professional? Well prepared? Does he have comparative studies available to explain how your property is situated in the market? Be wary of agents that don’t want to travel around and who guarantee you a sales price without even visiting your property. For buyers, the agent must explain how and how often he will notify you of new listings that meet your needs. Another element you must pay special attention to is the advertising done by the agent, since it’s the key to success in the real estate industry. Beware of agents who tell you they don’t need to advertise. Marketing your property is a key element that determines how fast you sell. It’s very important that you feel confident with the agent that you choose. He’s the basis of a successful transaction.

YOUR 17-851 Old North Thompson Hwy, CLEARWATER Spacious 3 years old, 2 bdrm mobile in beautiful Clearwater, offers generous room sizes & open floor plan.
