Mississauga is a great place to live! One thing for sure is we live in the Northern Hemisphere and snow falls like clockwork as the outside temperatures fall in winter. But that means snow shovelling. Without a doubt we appreciated that the City of Mississauga staff gets out early to clear the sidewalks and roads. Frequently, I’m asked asked is winter is a good time to list your home for sale. While it can be challenging, keeping the snow cleared is necessary. So I’ve put together 7 Tips for snow shovelling in Mississauga.
As well as its good to help your elderly and disabled neighbours clear their walks and driveways. Make it safe for all. Equally important is to salt and sand walks and steps. Further It helps to clear after each snowfall. So my 7 Tips for snow shovelling in Mississauga goes something like this:
- Plan ahead and keep shovels and brooms handy.
- Try not to lift with your back.
- Dress in multiple layers of warm clothing. You should also wear supportive boots with a good grip.
- Warm up and stretch your muscles before you start shovelling or chipping by walking around the block.
- Be sure to take frequent breaks while you work, at least once every 10-15 minutes.
- Purchase a snow blower – it makes it easy.
- Be neighbourly – it’s the one time of day you can chat and catch up with those around.
Is winter a good time to list your Mississauga home?
YES- In spite of snowy winter conditions it is a good time. Typically there are few homes for sale. So that means means more competition between buyers. Consequently homes can sell for slightly higher prices in mid-winter and early spring. Nevertheless, keeping the snow cleared and keeping your home ready to show to buyers in winter, can be challenging. But yes winter is a good time to list your Mississauga home.
Likewise, a good place for winter maintenance and snow removal tips can be found on the city of Mississauga website They provide live updates, tips on snow removal, and information on information on homeowner responsibilities for snow removal.
