Halloween Hours & Safety Tips.

Halloween Safety Tips from FPD Chief Thompson.

Fishers Police Chief Mitch Thompson has announced Trick-or-Treat hours for Halloween. Trick-or-Treat hours will be on Monday, October 31, 2016 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

trick-or-treat

Chief Thompson offers the following safety tips for Halloween.

  • Give and accept wrapped or packaged candy only.
  • Only go to houses that you know the owner.
  • Have children bring treats home for adult inspection before they are eaten.
  • A parent or adult should accompany children when they are trick-or-treating.
  • Carry a flashlight.
  • Stay within your neighborhood; only visit homes you know.
  • Use make-up or face paint instead of masks.  If masks are used, make sure the child has good visibility.
  • Choose costumes that are flame retardant.
  • Wear light-colored clothing, short enough to prevent tripping.  Add reflective tape to dark colored costumes.
  • Watch for vehicle traffic and use caution when crossing the street.

Police cars will be patrolling the neighborhoods to ensure everyone’s safety.  If you see or find anything suspicious, please immediately call 911.

Be safe and have fun!

Planning to Move?

If you’re in the market to list your home, contact a Realtor like me to help navigate you through the steps.

Pen and paper istock

We will work together to get you and your home ready for the sale.

Do a credit check-up. We will review your credit, uncover any credit snags, bills that need reduced, or settle up any errors on your credit report. We will work for a plan to tune up your credit score, if needed.

Set a budget. Take a look at your monthly income and expenses to determine your target mortgage payment range. We will factor in how much you’ll potentially net on the sale of your current home and any factors which will change your monthly budget (i.e. job promotion or new job). We will allow for a comfortable reserve margin as you’ll need cash to close on your next home, pay property taxes, insurance, utilities, HOA fees, moving expenses and more.

Partner with pros. Partner with a Realtor (like me) to review your home, establish a pricing strategy and help implement your new home goals. Work with a mortgage broker who can help explain financial scenarios based upon purchase price, down payments, monthly mortgage and taxes. Connect with a tax advisor who can review your income tax outcomes from the move and a financial planner who give you an expert opinion on your financial health and help you plan for the future.

Prepare a financial plan. On average, sellers pay five to six percent of the purchase price in commission fees. Allow yourself a budget for repairs in your home, as well as other expenses to come at closing such as property transfer taxes and buyer’s home warranty.

So, be a smart seller. As your Realtor, I will help you prior to listing to make sure you’re prepared for the move and your home is marketable to take it from listed to sold.
