Happy Holidays from Hales

Hales would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Joyous Holiday Season and a Happy New Year.


Tis the season for colder weather, snow, ice skating, presents, hot chocolate and magnificent Christmas lights. Here are some tips to help you gear up for the harsh winter conditions:

  • Reverse the direction on your ceiling fans. This will push the hot air down and help it recirculate through out the house.
  • Move furniture off your vents.
  • Have your furnace serviced to make sure it is running properly and safely.
  • Wrap the windows in plastic to keep out those arctic blasts.
  • Shut the door on rooms you do not use.

Why LED Christmas Lights?

  • LEDs use 90% less electricity than regular Christmas lights
  • Last up to 100,000 hours
  • The bulbs are plastic instead of glass
  • No bulbs to replace
  • LEDs come in a variety of styles
  • They do not get hot

How to insulate your windows for the winter


As the holidays approach, unfortunately the thieves start licking their chops.  Don’t forget to take steps to secure your home such as informing a neighbor, re-routing mail/packages if traveling, or enabling alarm.  Never post your departure on social media sites or turn off your furnace.  These simple steps among others will certainly help deter unwanted guests and avoid headaches upon your return.

I’m excited to inform everyone that we added a new blog section to our newly redesignedwebsite. If you haven’t had a chance look at it or log in, please take a moment to see all of the new features and resources.  The blog sectionwill contain a great deal of helpful information for condominium, town home, and/or rental unit.
Looking to rent out your unit?  Let us help.  We can help find tenants and manage your unit for you to avoid the hassle.  You’ll have exclusive access to our rental management web portal where you’ll be able to see when rent was paid, any expenses, and best of all, we’ll deal with any emergencies that come up.  Give us a call for further details or click here to fill out a form so that we can call you back.

Don’t forget to follow us or “like” our social media outlets such as FacebookTwitter,LinkedIn, or Google+  where we send out multiple home owner tips each week.  Plus our quarterly newsletter will continue to offer resources and additional “how to” information along with helpful tips for your home so please forward it on to your friends and family and check out our sponsors!

Congratulations to the Hales Property Management sponsored hockey teams as theFall season hockey champions as well as coming in 2nd place at the TCS Floor Hockey Holiday Tournament over the weekend.
