While that may be the case, it doesn’t mean you can’t send Grandma’s famous gingerbread cookies to everyone who will miss your holiday celebrations this year!

While you’re baking grannie's cookies, why not add a few other delicious treats to the box and really send them a good old fashioned box of holiday goodies? We’ve found eight treats that are easy to make and safe to send through the mail without fearing they’ll be crumbles by the time they arrive.

Winter is Here. Get Your Rental Ready!

Nov 13, 2020 9:00:00 AM / by Hignell Rentals Team

It seemed like the temperature went from summer to winter over night and skipped fall altogether. This more than likely caught you off guard when it came to prepping your rental for colder weather. 

Don’t worry, we have the tips to help you quickly get your home ready for temperatures below 60 degrees.

Windows and Doors

Your goal here is to make sure cold air can’t get into your rental and no hot air is escaping, and running up your energy bill. 

You won’t be needing that window AC unit anymore, so go ahead and remove it so you can prevent any air from coming through. 

Next, check your doors and windows for any cracks or leaks. If you find any, caulking or weather-stripping may be needed. If you think there is something larger that needs to be done or something you aren’t comfortable doing yourself, contact your rental office and they can be sure the job gets done right.
