We put everything and I mean everything away that is outdoors. All water hoses are removed and drained and of course we close the pool

If the home is occupied, you do the same things you normally.  People tend to forget about curb appeal in the winter, but you still want the home to look as good as it can from the street.

You should also change out the outside photos in different seasons.

If the home is vanant, I would winterize the plumbing, but would still leave the gas and electric on and have the home heated to at least 60 degrees.  With shorter days in the winter, you want to be sure all lighting is working.

Turn up the heat and get a new bag of fudge covered Oreos. How about you?
