Fix it? Or leave it “as is”?

When preparing your property for sale, you want to make it as attractive as
possible to buyers. After all, the more buyers like what they see, the higher the
probability you’ll get good offers.
That’s why it’s advisable to clean, declutter, decorate, fix, and improve as
much as possible.
But, how far should you go with fixing and improving? For example, should you
tear down the old deck and build a new one? Or, should you leave it as is?
Should you paint the main floor? Or is it okay to leave the faded finish and few

Revisiting Previously Unaffordable Neighbourhoods

Imagine you’d been keeping your eye on a desirable neighbourhood
over the years. You had hoped that one day you could buy a home
there. But, then you saw prices creeping up — to a point where they
became unaffordable.
“Oh well,” you’d thought. “I guess we won’t be moving there!”
That scenario is familiar to many homeowners. In fact, you too may
have been keeping your eye on a neighbourhood you’d love to get into
but have decided it’s become too expensive.

Showcasing the Unique Features of your Property

Imagine you’re at the grocery store shopping for oranges. Two brands are
available: the “Amazing Orange” and the “Super Orange.”
Which would you choose to buy?
Chances are, you wouldn’t decide based on their similarities. For example,
since both oranges contain vitamin C, using that as a buying criteria wouldn’t
help you choose between them. Instead, you would probably look for
differences. What does one brand have that the other does not? Maybe one is

Know the Local Market when You Sell

Are you thinking of selling your home this year? If so, you might be paying
extra attention to housing market news covered by the regional and
national media.
While that news can be helpful information, it can sometimes say little
about what’s happening in your particular neighbourhood. In fact, it’s
possible for there to be a balanced market nationally or regionally, while at
the same time your street may be experiencing a hot seller’s market!

Painting Tips for Getting the Job Done Faster

Unless painting a room is a passion, you probably want to finish the task as
soon as possible — while still doing a quality job. Here are some tips for doing
just that:
• One-coat paints. Having to do a second coat is time-consuming.
Fortunately, there are several “one coat” paints that can get the job
done, well, in one coat! They don’t work for every type of project. But, if
your walls are in good condition and you’re not dramatically changing

How Buyers Often Find Out about your Listing

There are many ways buyers can find out about your home for sale. Some will
see the lawn sign. Others will notice the listing on MLS. Still others might find
out via an advertisement or social media post.
But, there is one other way buyers will discover your listing — and it can be
pivotal to the success of your sale.
The agent can make sure they know.
In some cases, buyers shopping for a particular type of home, or those who
are targeting a specific neighbourhood, will get on an agent’s alert system. The

Check Internet Service Availability before you Buy

Until a couple of years ago, internet access was a nice-to-have for most
homeowners. But these days, it’s fast becoming a necessity. Kids need good
internet to do homework assignments. You may need reliable internet to work
from home and attend online meetings.
So, when shopping for a new home, it’s wise to check if the property which
you’re interested in making an offer on has good internet available. The last
thing you want is to move into a home only to discover that the internet service

Should your Home be in “Move-In” Condition when you Sell?

Imagine you’re shopping for a car. You find one that’s a suitable model, a
recent year, and hasn’t been driven a lot. The price is right, too.
But, there’s a caveat.
The paint is worn off in several places. The driver’s seat upholstery is torn and
requires repair. And, the tires needed to be replaced… a long time ago.
Would you still buy it? You might. However, unless you enjoy fixing up cars,
you’d probably hesitate to make the purchase.

Ensuring Fast Delivery when Shopping Online

If you're like most people, you hope that you’ll receive your online orders within
a few days. Sure, a purchase might occasionally arrive later than expected.
That's just the reality of online shopping.
But, what if you need an item delivered quickly, without risk of delay?
Here are a few suggestions:
• Check if the product is in stock. That's usually indicated on the web page,
but you can also phone to confirm. In-stock items usually ship quickly.
• Avoid special orders. Those always take longer to ship.

Should You Worry about Competing Listings?

Imagine you've been waiting for the right moment to sell your home and you're
finally ready to pull the trigger and list it. But, just as you're about to put up the
sign, you notice that a few other FOR SALE signs have unexpectedly popped
up in the neighbourhood.
Oh no! Now there are competing listings. Does that mean you should put your
plan to sell your property on hold?
Not necessarily.
Just because comparable homes are for sale in the area doesn't mean it's not
