Everyone cannot wait for summer to begin. The sunshine, the beaches, sitting on the patio with a cold one but it can go by so fast if you don't stop & take the time to soak it all in. One way to enjoy those long summer days is on your deck. 

 

Everyone has a different idea as to what their ideal patio or deck is so you have to keep in mind what would work with not only the house but with the yard and the property as a whole. You want something that will blend in with the surroundings yet standout in a positive way. A deck can add value to your home if designed and built properly. 

 

Decks have come a long way from just a few boards nailed together. You now see stone patios, bricks and with such a mutitude of woods to choose from, every patio can be as unique as you create it. The internet is a great source for ideas. Just type in "how to build the perfect deck" and you will get 29,000,000 ideas. You may have to filter several thousands of these but I think you get the picture. And with selling your home in summer, this may be exactly what your home needs to attract those summer buyers.

 

If you would like to discuss what might work the best for your home, give me a call at 250-305-7034 and I'd be happy to come over & help you discover the possibilities that await you.

Ahhh! Summer is here! The beautiful weather makes you want to sit back on the patio and just take it all in. But this may be the ideal time to go and try out someone else's patio to see if that might be your next backyard.

 

Summer house shopping can be an ideal time to jump into the market. Buyers are usually limited as many choose to take the summer off, go on holidays and look to resume their house hunting in the fall. As a buyer, this can be the exact time that you want to look at properties. The outdoor space should be in full bloom and you will see the property at what should be its peak for the season. If outdoor space is a high priority for your wish list, this gives you the chance to experience what a summer would be like at this home. You'll be able to visualize where you want the pool or if the existing deck would be large enough for your entertainment needs. It also gives the opportunity to see what the maintenance requirement would be to upkeep the property in the summer.

 

So if you are thinking of taking the summer off from your new property search, maybe rethink your holiday plans and toss in a few days of house hunting into the schedule.


If you'd like to see what properties might fit into your plans and lifestyle, give me a call at 250-305-7034 and we'll look at all the opportunities that await you.

With the distinct Canadian seasons that we enjoy, many people have a special love for the summer months. Summer vacation has arrived, Fridays at work tend to end early, golf and gardening are the sports of the season, and everyone seems to be happier with that extra dose of sunshine and daylight. 

 

If you’re selling your home in the summer, however, these same conditions can make buyers a little scarcer than they were in the hot spring market. If you want or need to sell your home this summer, there are some summer-proofing tips to present your house in its best light, so that it sells easily and well.

 

1. Open up your Space

That doesn’t necessarily mean that you should knock down walls, but rather that you should brighten up the space you have. Summer days are much longer and the sun shines much more strongly.  Open your windows and draw or remove heavy curtains: natural light will make potential buyers feel more positive and make rooms seem bigger. Consider painting walls white or a gentle light color; it’ll best catch the sunlight and open up the space.

 

2.  Floral Impact

Add to your home's appeal with fresh flowers. Choose vibrant, fragrant blooms but not too fragrant that it overwhelms the buyers. This will help make your home in tune with the season and potential buyers will feel more calm and relaxed within the space. A natural fragrance also helps subtly offset any less than enjoyable summer smells.

 

3. Consider Flooring

While the sun shining off the freshly painted walls will open up your rooms, the walls are only half the equation – don’t miss the floors. Maintaining tidiness isn’t always enough. Everyone notices scratches and dull spots on wood floors or stained carpeting can put off potential buyers. You may find that a new carpet may be the simplest way to update your home to move-in ready condition.  

 

4. A Cool Environment

When summer gets sweltering, home can be a cool haven. Chances are you’re not spending as much time in your home during the summer but it’s important to keep the house cool for visitors. For a wallet-friendly alternative to AC-blasting, consider some standing electric fans to circulate the air and keep it cool. 

 

5. Curb Appeal

The summer is an ideal time to showcase your landscaping, and "curb appeal". The first impression as a potential buyer pulls up the driveway is the front of your house and yard. Mow your lawn regularly and ensure that any patchy bits are re-seeded and then sod if possible. Consider investing in a professional cleanup and even a bit of garden redesign immediately before the home goes on the market.

 

Assess your front and/or back yards for their strengths and then highlight them: if you’ve got a pool, make sure any silt and dead leaves are removed to show it off. If you have a deck, re-paint it and make sure your patio set looks as clean and inviting as possible. For all outdoor spaces, invest in planters or hanging pots with nice pots and a pleasant balance of color. This will produce a valuable first impression of vibrant color and lush life.

 

These are just a few ideas to help your property shine in the summer. There may not be as many buyers out in the streets but it only takes one to notice what your property has to offer. If you need any help in visualizing what you can do with your property, do not hesitate to give me a call at 250-305-7034 and we'll look at how we can have you mowing a different yard in no time.
