Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.: Spring Forward. Set your clocks forward tonight .

Spring Forward. Set your clocks forward tonight .

Spring forward . Set your clocks forward  tonight before going to bed  because we will lose one hour .

If you are having an open house tomorrow or have appointments with buyers or sellers remind them too about the time.

I always remind people about it if I have appointments .

 

This is also a good time to check smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector batteries.

I have wall clocks that I need to set the time and the clock in my car. 

I know there are some states that do not have daylight savings time. If you call your friends try to remember what time zone they are in.

 

When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.

Tonight's the night!!! Spring Forward. Set your clocks forward tonight .

This is also a good time to check smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector batteries.

All clocks need to be reset  and the clock in your car.

Good morning Gita - this is the hard one since we lose a hour of sleep.  Nice to have daylight more toward end of day.

Good idea to remind people about the change in time if you have an appointment with them, Gita.

Thanks for the reminder.  It appears that this time may be the last time we have to do this in Florida if Congress gives Florida the approval to stay on Savings Time year round.

I can not tell you how happy i am to put the clock ahead and have more light at night Gita Bantwal 

Posted by Scott Godzyk, One of Manchester NH's Leading Agents (Godzyk Real Estate Services) 5 months ago

Gita- I'm a little concerned because Florida want to stay on DST and I'm not sure I like what that means. 

Posted by Kathy Streib, Home Stager - Palm Beach County,FL -561-914-6224 (Room Service Home Staging) 5 months ago

Joan, I feel the same way.

Posted by Gita Bantwal, REALTOR,ABR,CRS,SRES,GRI - Bucks County & Philadel (RE/MAX Centre Realtors) 5 months ago

Kristin, make sure that your husband will not change them again. It happened to us once.

Posted by Gita Bantwal, REALTOR,ABR,CRS,SRES,GRI - Bucks County & Philadel (RE/MAX Centre Realtors) 5 months ago

Scott, I too like the light in the evenings

Posted by Gita Bantwal, REALTOR,ABR,CRS,SRES,GRI - Bucks County & Philadel (RE/MAX Centre Realtors) 5 months ago

Kathy, I hope they will not vote for it

Posted by Gita Bantwal, REALTOR,ABR,CRS,SRES,GRI - Bucks County & Philadel (RE/MAX Centre Realtors) 5 months ago

Gabe, I hope not.

Posted by Gita Bantwal, REALTOR,ABR,CRS,SRES,GRI - Bucks County & Philadel (RE/MAX Centre Realtors) 5 months ago

No change in AZ Gita Bantwal - But we have to get used to all the other time zones making a move forward.

Sheri, keep it in mind if you are going to call someone who lives where there is DST.

Posted by Gita Bantwal, REALTOR,ABR,CRS,SRES,GRI - Bucks County & Philadel (RE/MAX Centre Realtors) 5 months ago

It seems so silly that we still do this. We should just stick with one schedule all year.
