Prep Your Denver Home For The Fall

There are some important things that you need to do in your home for the fall. Denver can be quite cold during the fall and winter months. If you are not careful, snow and ice can damage your house. The good news is that there is a prep list that you can follow.


Many things can be done inside. You have to decide whether you are going to do them on your own or enlist the help of a professional. Sometimes, it can be advantageous to spend the money so that a professional company does everything properly.

  • Clean the chimney
  • Have the heater inspected
  • Install weather stripping around doors and windows
  • Reverse fans
  • Replace batteries in smoke detectors

Some of these things won’t take long at all. You simply want to make sure that you are doing all that you can in order to protect your home – especially as you begin hanging holiday lights, doing a lot of baking in your home, and more.


Some of the projects outside may involve some special tools, and giving up a few of your weekends. The benefit is that you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your home is properly prepped for the fall months.

  • Clean out the gutters
  • Have the roof inspected
  • Fill and seal cracks in your driveway

Remember that there is going to be snow and ice during the winter months, and so during the fall, you can prepare your home for everything that Colorado weather is going to deliver. It will take a few weeks to complete everything, but it will be worth it in the end.

Call us at AFI Insurance today to learn about how our independent insurance agents can help you find a homeowner’s policy that is not only effective, but also affordable.


3 Tips for Holding a Garage Sale

Holding a garage sale is an easy way to net some extra money. How much you earn from a weekend garage sale will depend on how good you are at holding garage sales, though. Here are three tips from us at AFI Insurance on maximizing your profits from a garage sale.

Marketing at Garage Sales

Anytime you sell anything, even at a garage sale, your success will depend largely on your marketing efforts. If you want to have a successful weekend selling unwanted items, you’ll need to market both your garage sale and the wares you’re selling. A solid marketing strategy will include:

  • pricing things right so that they sell quickly
  • creating an eye-catching display by placing some items near the road
  • listing your sale online on local classifieds sites

Documenting Your Possessions Afterwards

As an independent insurance agency that serves Denver, CO, we at AFI Insurance would be remiss if we didn’t mention updating your home inventory list. We encourage everyone in Denver to maintain an accurate list of the personal belongings that they keep in their home. After a garage sale is a great time to either update or create such a list, as you just unloaded a lot of items and have less stuff to include on your list.

If you’d like to learn more about why we recommend keeping a home inventory list or want help creating one, contact us. We’ve helped many homeowners in the Denver area, and we’d love to help you as well. You can get in touch with one of our agents by filling out the appropriate form on our website, and someone at our agency will get in touch with you shortly.
