 The problem has been address..ed (no, pun intended) in the photo below.

A Simple Step to Home Safety from your Premier Agent, Nina Rogoff, RE/MAX Executive Realty, 781-883-3764

The house numbers have been added above the garage door and on the front door. Having the house numbers on your house make it easier for more than just your package delivery services. 

Remember, seconds count in an emergency! Help the emergency responders find your house as quickly as possible.

A simple step to home safetyPlace house numbers in well lit areas on your house and/or garage so they can be seen clearly from the street at night and during the daytime. Choose numbers that are at least 4" high and have a contrasting background so they can be seen at night. Check that bushes and trees aren't blocking the numbers.

Captain Madden, of the Town of Sharon Fire Department, pointed out to me not that long ago that if you're placing house numbers near the garage door DON'T place them on the door itself. Otherwise, when your garage door is open, your house numbers are hidden. 

Remember to number BOTH sides of a curbside mailbox. If your mailbox is not at the curb, put a post at the end of your driveway with the street numbers. I was delivering packages the other day and could not believe that in this particular development, the numbers had only been placed on mailboxes from one direction...not the side I was approaching from!

Want to know more about preparing your home for sale? Call Nina Rogoff, RE/MAX Executive Realty, 781-883-3764Take a moment to walk out to the street and look back at your house.

If you cannot easily see the house numbers, make a quick trip to your local hardware store. You will be doing something simple for your safety.

It's the law in Massachusetts! (Massachusetts General Laws C. 148, S. 59.)
