How to ready your home and yourself for the cold winter ahead
Are you ready for the cold snap?
With the winter season in full swing, it’s important to make sure you and your home are prepared for the colder temperatures. Here are a few tips to help you get ready for the cold snap:
- Check your heating system: As the cold weather hits, make sure your heating system is in good working order. This means getting your furnace or boiler serviced, checking for any drafts or leaks in your home, and ensuring that your thermostat is functioning properly.
- Stock up on winter essentials: Now is the time to stock up on winter essentials like warm blankets, hats, gloves, and scarves. It’s also a good idea to have a stash of non-perishable foods and bottled water in case of a power outage.
- Insulate your home: Proper insulation is key to keeping your home warm and energy-efficient during the colder months. Make sure your windows and doors are properly sealed and consider adding insulation to your attic or walls to keep the heat in.
- Protect your pipes: Cold temperatures can cause pipes to freeze, which can lead to costly repairs. To prevent this from happening, make sure to insulate any exposed pipes and let your faucets drip slightly during extremely cold weather.
- And one for you! Stay active: While it may be tempting to curl up on the couch and hibernate, it’s important to stay active during the winter months. Going for a walk or participating in some indoor exercise can help boost your mood and keep you healthy.

Real examples of Bōde sellers' success
Don't just take our word for it...
Saved nearly $15,000 by having my offer accepted through Bōde instead of through a real estate agent. If you are willing to be more involved in the process it's definitely worth checking out.
My house sold with Bōde for $30k higher than what most realtors estimated, while saving me a ton in fees.
As a builder, I pour my heart and soul into these projects. With Bōde I was able to sell four luxury homes in 21 days, saving well over $100,000 in commissions.
We saved thousands of dollars selling out home with Bōde. If we ever sell another home we will definitely use Bōde again.
We were amazed at how fast we were able to sell our home using Bōde. We certainly priced our hom eright and were able to sell it for 7% more than market and 92 days faster!
Used Bōde to sell my condo, they were super responsive and helpful through the entire thing. Scheduling all the showings myself was great, really simplified the process and saved a lot of money.
I have always wanted to list, show and sell my own homes in the pas but without a real estate licence it was never possible. Now with Bōde, marketing and selling your own home is in reach.
