Spring’s the perfect time for taking care of outdoor maintenance!

The arrival of warm weather signals fun in the backyard with friends and family. The last thing you want to deal with are unexpected home repairs so here’s a list to help keep you on track:

1. Clear away debris and dead foliage from any flowerbeds.

2. Inspect hose connections to ensure there are no leaks.

3. Replace damaged window screens and any weather stripping.

4. Clean your fireplace and/or wood-burning stove and flue.

5. Make sure your lawn mower, weed wacker and other tools are in good working order.

6. Clean and repair your patio furniture and inspect your deck for loose or rotten boards.

7. Trim back shrubs and vines that are growing near your air conditioning unit and dryer vent.

8. Inspect and clean your gutters and make sure downspouts drain away from your foundation.

9. Patch up any cracks you find around foundation and driveways before they spread further.

10. Inspect your roof for cracked or missing shingles and trim branches that hang over the top of your roof.

Proactive home maintenance helps prevent small issues from getting out of hand. Your home is a huge investment and minimizing repair bills will help you realize your highest rate of return. When you’re done, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the lazy days of summer knowing that everything’s been taken care of!

If your home is too big for you, you are tired of maintaining it and thinking of downsizing let me know. Call me text me or email me and I will share my real estate experiences with you.

Better Bedrooms. Faster Sale!

Here’s a surprising statistic. In several surveys, upwards of 60% of people surveyed listed “bedrooms” as one of the reasons they decided to purchase a particular property. So don’t overlook these rooms when preparing your house for sale. You need to make sure they appear roomy and attractive to potential buyers.

The first step is to make sure every bedroom actually has a bed. Otherwise, you might inadvertently give the impression that your home has fewer bedrooms than it really does. To a potential buyer, a bedroom is often more valuable than the home office or storage room you may have converted it into.

You can’t change the number of bedrooms your home actually has, but you can make sure that each one shows well. Consider the layout of each room carefully. Is the bed and other furniture placed in a way that makes the room appear as spacious as possible? Can buyers easily walk around the bed? Are the curtains, bedding and other décor items clean and attractive?

Finally, buyers will understand that a kid’s room may be somewhat cluttered and may even have an eclectic style, but you need to make sure it’s as clean and tidy as possible.

March 2017
Dear Friend,
More of the same, with no end in sight!
That pretty much sums up the Toronto real estate market. Record level sales, record level prices as 8,014 residential homes sold in February through the Toronto Real Estate Board MLS system.
It’s obvious that many Greater Toronto Area households as well as overseas investors continue to view Canadian home ownership as a great long-term investment. The high demand for ownership housing is broad-based, with strong sales growth for most low-rise home types and condominium apartments. This makes sense given the results of a recent consumer survey undertaken by Ipsos, which found an even split between intending first-time buyers and existing homeowners who indicated that they were planning on purchasing a home in 2017.
While the demand for ownership housing grew over the past year, new listings were down on a year-over-year basis by 12.5% further putting pressure on prices. Annual rates of price growth continued to be strongest for low-rise home types, particularly detached houses. Growth rates for condominium apartment prices were also in the double digits, likely a result of strong demand from first-time buyers and investors.
Though it sounds self-serving, I cannot stress enough the importance of an experienced full time realtor to help you in the purchase and sale of property. Last year, the Toronto Real Estate Board reported approximately 226,000 transactions shared by about 49,000 realtors, or less than 5 sales each! Really not enough practice to stay on top of one’s game.
If you have some real estate questions, or know of someone considering buying or selling, give me a call. I’ll be happy to put my experience to work for you.
Have a great March!
Your Friend in Real Estate.
PS. I’m never too busy for your referrals!
