What to Look for when Watching a Walk-Through Video

Walk-through videos are becoming increasingly popular. The seller’s agent
simply films a tour of a home, often including commentary, and then makes the
video available to prospects.
When you’re shopping for a new home, you want to get the most out of
watching this type of video, especially if you’re relying on it to help you decide
whether or not to make a viewing appointment.
Consider these suggestions:
• Remember, it’s a video. So take advantage of the ability to pause, go

Should You Accept the Highest Offer for your Home?

Imagine a kid running a lemonade stand. He’s selling his product for 25 cents
a cup. He’s doing okay. Sales are good. Then someone comes up to his stand
and says, “I’ll give you 50 cents for a cup. But, I don’t have the money right
now. Give me the lemonade and I’ll pay you later.”
Should he take the deal?
Chances are, you’d advise against it. After all, just because the price is high —
in this case, double — doesn’t mean the offer is a good one. There’s a chance

Pulling Together the Records you Need when Selling

Imagine you’re viewing a home for sale. You venture to the basement, check
out the furnace room, and notice the water heater. Is it owned or rented? As a
potential buyer, you’d want to know.
Now imagine a property you’re viewing has a brand-new gas fireplace. Nice! Is
it under warranty? Is that warranty transferrable to you if you buy the home?
Again, you’d want to know.
So, when you’re selling, it’s important to pull together all the necessary records

Easy Ways to Keep your Home “Show Ready” when Selling

After your home has been cleaned from top to bottom, it’s natural to want it to
stay that way. Don’t you wish you could just wave a magic wand and the place
would clean itself? Unfortunately, even Harry Potter can’t manage that!
However, when you’re preparing your property for sale, you really do need to
keep it clean and ready for showings. There are several ways you can make
doing that a bit easier.
Try these tips:
• The one-minute rule. If a cleaning or tidying task takes you less than a

Kitchen Improvements for under $100

Is it really possible to improve your kitchen’s look for about the cost of a
takeout gourmet dinner with the family?
Obviously you’re not going to be able to do anything major, such as replace
the cabinets within that budget. But, there are many surprisingly low-budget
ways to spruce up the kitchen. Here are a few ideas:
• Do you have old cabinets? You’d be surprised how much newer they
can look simply by replacing the knobs and/or handles. Pick a colour
that blends, rather than contrasts, with the cabinets.

How Important are Good Listing Photos?

There are two trends impacting real estate photography that you should know
about if you’re thinking of selling this year.
First, more than ever before, buyers are relying on pictures to decide whether
or not to schedule a viewing. They expect to be able to go online and “tour”
your home via the photography. If they don’t form a good impression of your
home from the pictures, they may quickly lose interest in your listing.
Second, everyone is a photographer these days! Most people have phones

Keeping Mice Out of your Home

There’s no doubt about it. Preventing mice from entering your home is much
easier than evicting them once they’ve moved in. If you take just a few simple
precautions, you can avoid the trip to the store to buy traps or the call to the
Here’s what the experts recommend:
• Install mouse-mesh in the drainage slots of exterior brick or siding.
There are many types available on the market. (Note: make sure you
don’t block water drainage!)

Is Getting into your “Dream” Neighbourhood Doable?

Is there a neighbourhood you drive through occasionally and think, “Wow. I’d
love to live here. What a fantastic area”?
Why don’t you take that thought any further? Maybe you think getting into that
neighbourhood just isn’t doable – at least, not right now.
Perhaps you’re worried about the home prices or the current lack of homes for
sale in that area. Maybe there’s some other reason, such as the possibility of
higher mortgage payments.

How to Improve WIFI Speed in your Home

These days, just about everyone relies on the internet for work, school,
entertainment, shopping, networking, you name it. So, speed and connectivity
have become big issues.
Ideally, you want a fast, reliable connection — consistently.
If you have a router and connect with WIFI, here are some ways to boost the
• Occasionally unplug your router, wait ten seconds, and then power up
again. Routers get clogged with settings, protocols, code, you name it.
Resetting the router is like cleaning the pipes.

How Emotions Can Get in the Way of Selling

Like most homeowners, you probably don’t think of your property as just a
building with rooms and a backyard. To you, it’s much more than that. It’s a
When you walk into your dining room, for example, you don’t merely see the
table and chairs. You see memories. You recall laughter with family and
friends. It’s emotional.
That’s what a home is all about.
However, buyers don’t want to buy your “home”. What they really want to buy
