HIGH FLYING HOME BUYING TIPS

When purchasing a home way too often we see homebuyers allow their emotions to cloud reality. Sometimes as homebuyers we want something to be so perfect that we don’t ask the right questions, we don’t do the right research, and we see more of a mirage than the reality of the potential home. However, there are several tips and tricks that can help ensure your potential home will fit you perfectly.
 
Look Up Local News:
One of the best ways to gain a real understanding of your potential local area is to check out its local news stories. Local news can provide you with information that you really can’t find anywhere else.

Visit At A Variety Of Times:
Visiting at various times throughout the day will reveal more information about your potential home and its neighborhood than you can imagine. Things that might seem nice during the day but not so much at night and vice versa.

Contact The Neighbors:
Learning information about your potential neighbors will also provide you with information on the quality of your potential neighborhood as well. You need to be sure that not only is your neighborhood a perfect match for you but your neighbors are too.

Get A Home Inspection:
As always one of the most effective tricks to home buying is having your own inspection done. Nearly every home you will run into will have some sort of issue or defect and a home inspection will provide you with all the information you need on a property and more.

Ask For Details On Past Renovations And Repairs:
It is a smart idea to ask the seller to provide you with detailed information on past renovations and repairs. This is not always a possibility but if you can obtain this info you can learn so much about the home.

It really is all about the staging, isn't it?
3 key areas for home staging, from our #HOVhomeTip  series, plus a bonus from +Organized by Design. What is your favorite area of the home to see staged to perfection?

Smart Selling Tip 6/7: Stage your home properly!

There have been many books written on this topic and with different viewpoints. A few of the common themes are as follows: 

1) De-clutter your house: remove the excess items from your house that get in the way of understanding the space you have to offer and how it works. There is a difference in suggesting a use verses over emphasizing one. 

2) Simplify your house: Make sure that the colors and fabrics in the rooms are neutral in color. It is important to choose a universal palate for your house that the majority of prospects can relate to. 

3) De-personalize your house: So not to distract from the spaces or architectural appointments that there may be in your house, you may want to remove all personal items so that the prospect could see themselves living there. 

+Sherry Castaldi of +Organized by Design left a comment on one of our other tips recommending that homeowners take down wallpaper as well...great call. Are there any other key areas to stage?

More Canadians Turning to Renovations 

Renovation spending has been the fastest growing segment of the market with renovation outlays increasing at an annual rate of 6% from 2000-2012 according to a new Scotiabank report. 

Andrienne Warren, an economist with Bank of Nova Scotia, says the boost in the renovation market has been “fuelled by rising home prices, tight resale market conditions, attractive financing costs and government tax credits.” 

Renovation spending has been the fastest growing segment of the market with renovation outlays increasing at an annual rate of 6% from 2000-2012. This increase was double the 3% of new construction. 

These renovations eventually boost housing prices because they increase the quality of the housing, said the report. That housing is eventually sold at a higher price. 

She said the housing market may finally be turning.  “Residential investment stalled last year, as affordability tempered home sales, and builders scaled back the number of new developments,”, adding Scotiabank expects a more “subdued trajectory” for housing over the next several years which will have a modest drag on the economy. 

Ms. Warren estimates the housing sector contributed $128-billion to the economy last year when including residential investment, new construction, renovations and owner transfer costs such real estate commissions, legal and appraisal fees. 

It is an important part of the economy with residential investment expanding at an annual rate of 4.2% from 2000-2012, almost double overall gross domestic product during the period. The sector contributed 0.3% annual to real GDP over the period. 

Many industries contribute to the real estate sector, including manufacturing, retail and wholesale trade, finance, insurance and real estate professional and technical services.
