I'm moving to NC on Friday. House will sit vacant until it sells.
Some info upfront:
It's an end unit townhouse; build in 2010 so fairly new appliances. Gasheat, range, dryer and water heater.
Here’s my plan:
- Set thermostat to 62 degrees to keep the pipes from freezing (if it has to sit over the winter) and to make sure it’s still an OK temp to show the house
- Turn off the main water supply, there’s a lever in the utility room.
- Turn off (gas) water heater
- Open blinds so light can come in and put air freshener in the rooms so it doesn’t smell since nobody is letting fresh air in
The rest I think I will leave as is!?
Is there anything I may have missed? Should or shouldn’t do?
