I hope everyone has enjoyed all the spectacular fall colors that we are experiencing. The winds have held off for the most part so we are lucky to be able to still enjoy most of the color on the trees and not the lawn. Change can come quickly and we can't always control it. But there are many changes that we can foresee and even create such as changes we make to our homes.

Whether you are thinking about renovating for your enjoyment or renovating to sell for someone else's enjoyment, painting can be an inexpensive way to make a big change. But what if we don't have the eye of Martha Stewart when it comes to details like that. Luckily, there are many ways to get around that little detail now a days. I found even in my own home that when you've lived in it a long time, it can be difficult to visual how to change it or in the option of painting, what direction to go in for color.

With technology, comes the power of change. There are computer programs you can purchase that will help you redesign your whole home. But something as simple as changing the color of your livingroom can have a huge impact on your home. So how do you pick a color? Here is 1 of several websites that I came across where you can download any photo, pick the area you want to paint, pick your color and "paint" your room. Paint Your Room Online. It may not be exactly the clean lines you want to see on your actual walls but it may help you decide if autumn leaf or nature's reflection paint will work best in your color plans.

So be bold! Get creative and "paint" your room. You can always hit "delete". If you'd like to discuss how painting can affect the price of your home, do not hesitate to contact me at 250-305-7034 or toll free at 888-305-7034.


Happy painting!

It is so exciting when your realtor gives you that call to say "Congratulations they accepted your offer!" But as thrilling as that moment is, moving to a new home can be very exciting but also very stressful at the same time. If you make a plan and are organised you can make the transition much more easily and save time too.

 

Planning

Once you have agreed on a completion and moving date, this is a great time to begin disposing of all those items that have been collected over the years and are hiding in the attic, shed and garage. Go through your possessions and use the opportunity to discard or sell the items you never use. Clean cupboards and pack systematically as it makes it easier and quicker when you sort through it in your new home. 

 

Decide if you are going to undertake the move yourself with a van and friends or use professional removers. Obtain quotes and book the van or moving company. Make sure the moving firm has a good reputation and ascertain what level of insurance is available and who is going to be responsible for the packing, especially if you have any precious or valuable items.

 

Seal boxes as you pack, and then label them on the outside with marker pen. You can use a simple number system with each number corresponding to a number on a room plan which you can give to the movers on the day.

 

Make arrangements with the post office to have your mail redirected for a specified period of time.

Compile a list of all the people you will have to contact prior to your move such as hydro, telephone, cable and/or satellite, etc.  Other important businesses that you will have to make arrangements with are your house insurance providers,bank, and lawyer just to name a few. 

 

Find all the hidden keys to your home and outbuildings and give these to your estate agent just before you move. You won’t have time on moving day.


On the day

  • Pack some items in your car so you don’t have to wait for them or wonder where they are.
  • Keep aside tea, coffee, kettle, milk and treats so you can motivate the movers. If this is safe you can access it at the other end as soon as you get there. 
  • If you pack a box of cleaning materials, you can clean up each room as the movers empty it and you will be ready to also use it in the new house.
  • Also keep aside a few plates, knives and forks so you can enjoy your 1st meal in your new house.
  • Have your bedding with you too so you can at least make up the beds.
  • Pack towels, personal toiletries and a change of clothes.

When you arrive

  • Take meter readings when you leave and also read the meters at the new house.
  • When you first arrive, quickly check everything works, then open the windows to air the property because a great deal of dust will be generated when you start unpacking.
  • Ideally you would clean the house thoroughly before moving in if the previous owners did not already do this, but if this is not possible, do not unpack everything until you can clean to your satisfactory.

Later

  • It is always recommended to change the locks as soon as possible because you don’t know if anyone still has access to the keys.
  • Organise new telephone and broadband services if you have not been able to do so in advance.
  • Enjoy your new home and all the many reasons you chose it.

So happy moving and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at 250-305-7034.
