These Unsafe Behaviors Could Lead to an Electrical Fire

Few things are as frightening as the prospect of a house fire. Between 2012 and 2016, the U.S. saw an average of 355,400 home structure fires per year, resulting in an annual $6.5 billion in property damage and, more importantly, seven deaths each day. It will come as no surprise to learn that cooking, which obviously involves the use of a heating element, results in nearly half of home fires; however, 10% of house fires are caused by electrical problems, which can be harder to detect and prevent. In fact, although electrical fires accounted for only 10% of total fires from 2012-2016, the National Fire Protection Association reports that they resulted in an outsized proportion (19%) of fire deaths. Luckily, you can reduce your chances of having an electrical fire by avoiding a few dangerous, but common, behaviors.

Although everyone dreams of a quick sale, the unfortunate reality is that sometimes a home just sits... and sits... and sits. If your home has been on the market for several months and you aren't receiving reasonable offers (or even unreasonable ones!), then it might be time to consider withdrawing the listing. Of course, this is no easy decision, so how do you know when a change is necessary? Here are four signs that it might be time for a tactical retreat.
