Lewes Homeowners Prepare for an El Niño Winter

With fall newly arrived, it’s a time of year when Leweshomeowners can breathe a sigh of relief; relax and take it easy. With summer behind us, most gardens require less attention. The demands harsh winter weather will make are off in the distant future— or are they?

This year it might be prudent for Leweshomeowners to mentally remove a month or two from their home maintenance timetables. The reason comes in two familiar words (and they aren’t English): El Niño.

According to the government’s NOAA climate forecasters, there is “an approximately 95% chance that El Niño will continue through Northern Hemisphere winter 2015-2016…” Since that is definitely our area’s hemisphere, they’re speaking to us.  They answer the question, “How strong is this El Niño now?” with, “it’s pretty strong.”  In August, it ranked second all-time (behind August 1997) in the Equatorial Southern Oscillation Index, which is one way of measuring its power. El Niño is the condition where weather shifts occur due to a change in warm ocean currents in the Pacific.

What this means to Leweshomeowners is as unpredictable as…well, as the weather! What is acknowledged is that normal patterns can be disrupted to varying degrees. The reason we can never get much clarity about how it’s going to affect us is that (unsatisfying though this answer may be), winter could be markedly more—or markedly less—stormy than usual. Since the maximum effect is expected in late fall through December (hence the Christmas allusion of the ‘El Niño’ name), Leweshomeowners might consider getting on with their winter maintenance preparations earlier rather than later.

So here—a bit earlier than usual—are some regular fall maintenance heads-ups:

  • Check and fill the exterior gaps where critters, bugs, and cold air might enter
  • Chimney maintenance: if you sweep once a year, schedule now
  • Rain gutter check: even though leaves haven’t begun to fall in earnest, cleaning out the mucky old debris now will make later leaf removal a breeze
  • Inspect the roof: if damage has happened, now is the time to schedule repair
  • Ditto the driveway: fill cracks before winter
  • Now is the perfect time to clean and stain the deck. Depending on how much sunlight it gets, it may need to be renewed annually (no matter what the stain can says!)
  • Replace worn weather stripping around doors and windows—your winter heating bills will reward the effort.

As a check of comments on the weather sites confirms, local homeowners have differing memories of how previous El Niños have affected them. But since we are now officially in an El Niño year—it can’t be a bad idea to prepare ahead of time (and if you have Lewesreal estate plans in the offing, now would also be a good time to give me a call)!

No News = Good News when it Comes to Delaware Real Estate

 If, as the saying goes, “”no news is good news,” last week was almost a good week for U.S. real estate. Delaware real estate watchers like me found no hint of the kind of sweeping changes that can alter residential real estate patterns for buyers and sellers. Possibly because of the looming election, little space was devoted to real estate—with the exception of one thought-provoking discussion.

CNBC’s commentary embodied the major theme: they wrote about high-end real estate being subject to a “slowdown” and “uncertainty”—but then went on at length to explain why the “ultra-wealthy” have a “very strong intent to purchase real estate.” When you read articles like that— analyses that come down forcefully on both sides of a proposition—you know it’s a slow news week.

BTW, by CNBC’s definition, the “ultra-wealthy” are those with a net worth of more than $50 million. Delaware homeowners should sleep more soundly knowing they already own some of what the ultra-wealthy covet “very strongly.”

Stepping down from those precipitous net worth heights, news reports about the merely wealthy echoed a similar sentiment—internationally, too. YouGov is an outfit that surveys consumers across a dozen countries. They found the top echelon of consumers to be “cautious but optimistic” about real estate. YouGov reported that 45% of foreign buyers are looking to purchase real estate—nearly twice as many as those who plan to sell.

Homeownership levels began to edge back up from the five-decade low that The Wall Street Journal has been tracking—but were not yet making giant gains. On a newsworthiness scale, that news found its way almost to the bottom of the WSJ’s Real Estate section. Almost as an afterthought, the Journal mentioned “tentative signs” that renter families “are starting to gain the confidence to buy homes.” That could foreshadow real news, but apparently, not quite yet.

The reason that it was almost a no-news week is because there was a newsworthy account on a real estate-related news front. MarketWatch ran an in-depth report that spotlighted a trend that home builders and architects would be wise to note. The industry is “behind the curve” when it comes to building homes that accommodate today’s trend toward an “all-delivery, all-the-time” population.

As at-home grocery and household goods delivery numbers skyrocket and Amazon Prime cartons clog post offices everywhere, secure places for deliveries to be left are not yet being widely incorporated into houses. Mail slots won’t do it, “and curbside mailboxes aren’t set up to handle it.” Crime statistics bear out that the porch-pirate phenomenon is a rising problem.

There are several lock-box type solutions, but the design answer that I thought was the real newsmaker of the week was architectural: built-in drone drop-off platforms. NASA investigators told the Washington Post that homes need to be more drone-delivery friendly, with “chimneys turned into package chutes…or mailboxes that are tall enough to stay clear of pets and children.”

With thought-provoking ideas like that, even a slow real estate news week can give us something to think about. When your own family news events start to center around your personal Delaware real estate plans, I hope you will consider me your go-to resource!
