It’s almost that time of year again when “snowbirds” leave their properties in the southern states like Florida, Texas, and Arizona to return to their homes in the north. Below is a complete checklist of things to do before leaving your property for an extended amount of time. In addition to following the suggested items on the checklist, it is advisable to have someone, whether it is a friend or family member, or a professional is hired, to check the property regularly while it is vacant to ensure there are no existing maintenance issues, and to help prevent more costly, widespread damage from occurring.
