Thinking of selling your home? They say first impressions are very important and that holds true with selling your home as well. Buyers are looking for the best home for the best price so a home for sale can easily slip through the cracks if it's not in pristine condition. Here are the top 10 tips for having your home ready to sell:


1. Improve your landscaping. Curb appeal is crucial to a good first impression so make sure your home's lawn is immaculate. You want it to show at its best so take the time to mow the lawn, prune the bushes, weed the garden, rake up leaves and plant flowers.


2. Clean the outside. An unkept exterior will make potential Buyers think you've slacked off on interior maintenance as well. Be sure to clean the gutters and pressure wash your home's siding.


3. Make repairs. In a Buyer's market, you want your home to be in the best condition possible. Take care of major defects like broken windows or a leaky roof that could discourage Buyers and have them moving onto the next available property.


4. Make the front door inviting. A fresh coat of paint, especially in a color that contrasts with the home, will make the front door stand out. Replace faded house numbers so Buyers can see them from the curb.


5. Buy a new welcome mat. Simple as that. Let Buyers know they're invited into your home.


6. Remove clutter and depersonalize. Buyers want to envision their belongings in your home. Clean up by renting a storage unit or find another storage area outside of the home for knickknacks, photos, extra furniture and other personal items. 


7. Organize closets and drawers. Messy closets give the appearance that your home doesn't have enough storage space.


8. Make every surface shine. From ceiling fans to floors and everything in between, clean your home until it sparkles.


9. Take color down a notch. You might like your lime-green bedroom, but it may be overwhelming to potential Buyers. Paint your walls a neutral color that will appeal to a wide range of Buyers.


10. Eliminate bad odors. Hide the litter box and spray air neutralizer throughout your home. When showing the home, fill it with inviting smells by putting out fresh flowers or baking a batch of cookies.


Now that you have your home in tiptop shape, give the Best Team a call to get the Best results...SOLD!

You've taken the big step and listed your house! So now what? Now comes the showings. For some homeowners, this can be a stressful time of trying to keep their home in order so that it shows at its best. Making the best first impression can make the difference from getting a 2nd showing and offers to sitting idle in the market. 


So what can you do to try and keep life semi-normal while selling your home? Here are a few ideas that can help make a difference for you and your family:

While Your Home Is Being Shown

We live in a world of convenience. You can "tap" your debit card to pay for a purchase, you can sit at your desk and buy a car online, you can text someone who is on the other side of the world, etc. etc. But when it comes to our homes, how convenient have we made them to fit our own personal needs?!

 

I came across this article that puts a whole new meaning to "convenience". Check out these mind-blowing drawers and see if that might be exactly what you are looking for in your home.

Sometimes we forgot how value a basement really is. We look at it as an area for storage or to do laundry. But a basement can be more than just that and by creating a space that is inviting and functional, you not only add more living area to your home but increase its sellable potential. 

 

I found this article that looks at what you can do to make the most out of this special area:

 

 

10 Ideas for An Anything-but-Boring Basement

What a crazy spring it has been! As you may have noticed by this week's sold properties on my Weekly Update, Buyers have been out in full force this spring, are looking to buy and are buying. If you look at the 3 sold properties I sold this week, 2 sold within 2 days of coming into the market and the 3rd one in 22 days (which actually would have been sooner if not due to financing delays).


So what does this mean if you are a Seller? It means the time is here to put your property into the market and you want it ready to show to its best potential. How can we help you?


* The Best Team has a extensive marketing strategy that will showcase your home in many venues where buyers are actively searching.


* We provide the best photos we can in order to showcase what your home has to offer and buyers can view them immediately when your property comes onto the market. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. 


* We provide unique videos that capture the essence of your home and the property from a bird's eye view which quickly gets the attention of buyers. 



What if you are looking to buy? What you need to do is have your ducks all in a row.


* Know what you are looking for and what you can live without.


* Have your financing in place so that you are ready to make an offer when you find "the one".


* Work with one Realtor not 3 as this will get you the best results in being advised about new listings that have come into the market or any changes that have occurred with listings already in the market such as price changes, etc. 


* Find out what your Realtor will do for you. I have many strategies in place such as my website & a specialized search that will create a website personally tailored to your wish list which will help you succeed in finding the best home for you.


There are many aspects to buying and selling so meeting with a Realtor to discuss all the details is the best place to start. If you are ready to hit the market, give me a call or email me at george@williamslakehomesforsale.com as I would love to meet with you to discuss what you are looking for.

When talking about real estate, the media often focuses on the bigger (& more expensive) real estate markets like Vancouver or Toronto when looking at the different trends. But what about all the other areas that matter where you actually have a chance at owning a home?!


I recently came across a map of Canada on the huffpost.com site where it shows the average home price in the different areas of Canada and what salary you would need to earn in order to purchase in that area. The sources used to generate these numbers came through the CMHC, CREA and the TD bank.

 

Take a look as some of the areas may surprise you:

Renovations can be exciting yet stressful. There is a lot of thought that goes into renovating a space so whatever you can use to motivate or assist you in the decision making process is a plus. The bathroom can be an interesting space to change up. Usually it is a smaller room with limited options but there are ways to get creative.

 

For inspiration, check out these 19 dramatic bathroom makeovers and see if it moves you in the best direction for your own space:
