Well we made in to April! My hope is that with it brings a change in weather as I think our “April showers” were more than made up for in March. There is a lot going on this month beside that nasty Tax day. This newsletter is packed with reminders on what records we should keep and when others can be thrown in a big bonfire ( just kidding). Plus great happenings around our area. I for one am excited to go to the Tulip Festival! I hope you and yours have a wonderful April and remember Snohomish County Homes Real Estate is here to help you when your ready.

Winter months can be so cruel to your roof. If your roof fails, it can cause great expense, significant damage and wasted time and money. With winter in full swing, give your roof a quick check-up to ensure that your home is protected.
Here are some warning signs that your roof may be costing your money and leaving your vulnerable.
If you notice any of these warning signs, consider using a professional roofing contractor. Many people neglect their roof or think roofing installation is simple. As a Real Estate professional that sees houses day in and day out, and loves to follow around the inspectors, I can tell you the roof is always the first thing that is checked and 7 out of 10 times needs repairs, replacement of shingles or worse.
A well-installed, well-maintained roof is one of the most important things your can do for your home.
