List It: Dog Etiquette for Selling a Home

 There’s dog etiquette for the dog park, on and off-leash walking, and public places, but who knew there was dog etiquette when it comes to selling your home? Luckily now you do, so you can use this guide to take the proper steps to ensure your home makes the first impression you need to get you one step closer to Louisville.

 

Besides, the sooner you get there the sooner you can leash up and explore the city. First, fuel up at one of the many dog-friendly restaurants nearby. While your food settles, take the tram through the Mega Cavern that goes under the city of Louisville or enjoy a glass of wine at Vines & Canines. Once you’re ready to up the activity, go for a casual stroll in Iroquois Park or let your pooch have some off-leash fun at Vettiner Dog Run.

Tips to Save Energy and Add Value

When it comes to energy efficiency, look for smart features and expertise to help you save energy and money and add value to your home.

1. Begin with a Right-Sized Home.

If the home you buy is simply too large for you or your family’s needs or plans, you stand a good chance of wasting energy through excessive heating and cooling costs. If it’s too small, you’ll feel cramped and uncomfortable. It’s a big investment, so seek balance and buy it “right” from the outset. 

2. Purchase Energy Star Appliances Such as Your TV, Dishwasher, Washer and Dryer, and Microwave.

And especially the refrigerator, as it alone contributes about 10 percent of the energy use in a home. Also, unplug electronics not in use or turn off power strips to avoid phantom charges. 

3. Install Efficient Lighting Such as Compact Flourescent (CLF) or LED Bulbs in Every Fixture.

Lighting accounts for about 6 percent of an energy bill each year.

4. Get an Energy Audit and Have Tests Performed to Identify Ways of Improving Your Efficiency.

You can always upgrade your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system as well as your thermal envelope, which includes insulation, windows, and doors  and the seals or weather stripping around them. Visit energy.gov/energytips for more tips.
