<span style="font-weight: 400;">As we prepare to ring in the new year,
you’re probably making some resolutions. The new year is a great time
to review your life and make a plan for some improvements. You’re likely
setting goals that improve your health, wellness and finances. But what
about your property? Don’t worry, we’ve put together a list of ways you
can look to improve your property in the coming year.</span>
<h2>Make your homeowner resolutions:</h2>
<h3><span style="font-weight: 400;">Spruce up your front
yard</span></h3>
<span style="font-weight: 400;">When was the last time you paid your
front yard some attention? Take the new year as an opportunity to
improve your curb appeal. Consider adding a rock feature or some
swanky lighting. Browse Pinterest for some landscaping ideas and
inspiration.</span>
<h3><span style="font-weight: 400;">Paint your front door and
shutters</span></h3>
<span style="font-weight: 400;">It’s been on your list forever, hasn’t it?
Every time you pull out or into the driveway you think </span><i><span
style="font-weight: 400;">man, I really have to get this
done.</span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;"> Carve out a weekend
and finally make it happen. This is a resolution you’ll thank yourself for
over and over again.</span>
<h3><span style="font-weight: 400;">Finally take on that renovation
project</span></h3>
<span style="font-weight: 400;">We get it, renovations can take a lot out
of you. Whether you do it all yourself or hire the professionals (hey, we
might know a reputable one), it can be a lot. As the year closes out, take
a look at your calendar and start preparing. Make the necessary phone
calls and coordinate that initial consultation. </span>
<h3><span style="font-weight: 400;">Create an outdoor
oasis</span></h3>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Don’t let a summer season pass without
having that outdoor oasis you’ve been dreaming about. Transform your
outdoor space this year. Depending on your vision, this is certainly a
project you can take on yourself. Have bigger dreams? Hire the
professionals. Need some ideas? </span><a

outdoor oasis</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">.</span>
<h3><span style="font-weight: 400;">Hire professional window
cleaners</span></h3>
<span style="font-weight: 400;">Understandably, your windows probably
get overlooked despite the fact that you likely </span><i><span
style="font-weight: 400;">use</span></i><span style="font-weight:
400;"> them daily. Do yourself a favor and go ahead and arrange to have
professional window cleaners scheduled on a regular basis. You’ll likely
be shocked at how big of a difference this service will make in your
life.</span>
<h3><span style="font-weight: 400;">Review utility bills and establish a
plan to save</span></h3>
<span style="font-weight: 400;">Do your monthly bills make you cringe?
Give yourself a gift that keeps on giving. Do an audit on your utility bills
and usage and map out a plan on how you can save. Sometimes we fall
into poor usage habits that end up costing us unnecessarily. It might be
winter, but go ahead and </span><a
