We are excited to announce our second “Over The River and Through the Woods” warm winter clothes drive. Last year, we introduced you to the needs of families in the Heber Valley community; a community not too far or too different from ours. Many residents in the Heber community are the backbone work forces in the hotel, ski and tourism industries, often working long hours for low wages. Your response in 2014 was amazing. We gathered over 400 items and when we delivered your donations we saw firsthand the difference you made.
We need your help again! We’re asking residents to donate new or gently used items warm winter clothes including:
Jackets • Coats • Winter Gloves • Winter Hats • Winter Pants • Winter Boots
Here’s how you can help: Drop off anything from the list in the donation bins at the SunCrest Community Clubhouse through November 16th, 2015.
Our 2015 goal is 600 items (a doable 25% increase from ’14). If you’re feeling social, share donations on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #goal600
This year, we’re excited to bring SunCrest residents an exclusive offer. We’ve teamed up with a great local business, Bake360, to bring every SunCrest household a coupon for a free breakfast pastry* – no purchase necessary. Residents should have received a postcard with the clothes drive information and Bake360 coupon. If not, contact us and we’ll send one out ASAP. Just bring in your postcard and enjoy! (Note: Donating isn’t required to enjoy this offer, but is certainly encouraged.)
Thank you in advance for your warm generosity. Together, we can make a difference.
* Expires 11/30/15 Kouign Amann excluded

SunCrest Fall Maintenance Tips
Each year, we provide fall maintenance tips to help prepare your home for the winter season. The coming weeks provide a good opportunity (and perhaps a last opportunity) to prepare your SunCrest home before the first snow flies. Here is our list of helpful fall maintenance tips:
The yard– clean up debris that may have blown in and become stuck in bushes, trees, and window wells. Rake up dead grass and leaves.
Rain gutters– clean out rain gutters and flush with water. Check for any leaks and repair as necessary. With our higher elevation and colder temperatures in SunCrest, clogged rain gutters could cause ice dams.
Roof- check the roof for damaged, missing, or curled shingles. Inspect the flashing and vents. If water penetrates the surface, it can freeze and lead to further damage.
Exterior water– to prevent exterior pipes from freezing, turn off the valves and run the remaining water until pipes are empty. You may also consider using an air compressor to “blow out” the sprinkler system. [NOTE: This may also reduce sprinkler frustration in the spring!]
Inspect the concrete– take steps now to repair damaged driveways, sidewalks or steps. Preventing water from expanding and contracting could help prolong the concretes life.
Exterior windows/doors– check for any peeling paint and re-paint exterior doors and doorframes to help prevent future damage.
Caulk windows & install weather stripping– seal gaps and cracks around windows and doors with caulk and install weather stripping.
Winterize lawn mower and prepare snow blower- clean the lawnmower and add winterizing additives to prepare it for hibernation. Start the snow blower to make sure it works before the first big storm.
Fire it up- run the fireplace and furnace to ensure it’s working properly. You may also consider having a professional inspect the systems.
When selling your SunCrest home, most SunCrest buyers will hire a professional home inspector who is working to protect the buyer’s investment. Taking a weekend or two (or hiring it out) now, will help prolong the life of your home and help with the selling process in the future.
Fall is one of our favorite times of the year. The leaves are changing, sweater weather is in full swing, and pumpkin flavors are everywhere and in everything.
We just listed this home and think it pairs perfectly with the SunCrest Lifestyle. After all, fall is a phenomenal time to show off the mountain views.
It’s nuzzled up nicely against Gambel Oak on a .43-acre lot. There’s a walkout basement, waterfall, Trex deck, zen path, stamped concrete patio, and flat yard that will leaf you wanting to spend more time outdoors (see what we did there?).
Exploring around inside, you’ll find it’s dressed to the 9’s. Pull out your highlighters and take special note of the massive windows at every turn, for those coveted Salt Lake County views. And the views from deck? So jealous!
Dark, wide-plank-hand-scraped-hickory-hardwoods (sigh!) span the entire main floor. The kitchen has thick, rock pitched granite tops, Electrolux fridge, 5-burner gas cooktop with a handy pot filler, wine and bevvie cooler, and a formal dining room. Home for the holidays anyone?
The master retreat is both classy and cool, and features a walk out to the deck. The other bedrooms also have adjoining bathrooms and large closets.
It’s true main floor living with a formal living room, dining room, laundry, and if you’re working from home, fist pump the air right now–you’ve got two office choices and both are the best seats in town.
The downstairs is definitely not some spooky dungeon. The large windows create “second story” views from the large family room and bedrooms. There’s even room for ping-pong, pool, foosball and a second kitchen off of the downstairs family room.
Relax. With the dipping temps outside, we won’t tell if you want to make up a warm drink and watch “Game of Thrones” for hours. This place has a 108” screen, Sony equipment, and stadium seating. When you’re ready to work off popcorn and soda, walk over (or roll–it’s up to you) to the in-home exercise room.
We’re trying really hard not to use the ol’ “Fall In Love With This House” pun, but c’mon… what’s not to love about it, in any season?
Give us a call or reach us here and we’ll take you through it firsthand. The pumpkin spice latte is on us.
