5 Things You Need To Fix Before Selling Your Home

5 Things You Need To Fix Before Selling Your Home

It is everybody's dream to sell their home and be able to move into a bigger and better house in a completely different area but selling your home can get complicated if you do not go through the proper steps beforehand to make sure that your has is updated enough for potential home buyers of your home. Here are 5 things you need to fix before you can even consider selling your home and moving on to bigger and better. Remember that when a home is updated people are more likely to consider it when buying or looking for a new home.

 

Holes Or Cracks

One of the minor things that needs to be updated on your home before you put it on the market and show it to potential buyers is to repair and holes or cracks that may be in any of the walls of your home. Make sure to patch all holes or cracks weather they are big or small and to give your walls a fresh coat of primer and some new paint after you patch all the holes you find. This will make less work for the next owner of your house and is greatly appreciated.

 

Roof and exterior windows

When considering selling your home one of the more important things that needs to be looked at is the roof and exterior windows. You want to make sure there is no damage to the roof or the exterior windows and if there is be sure to fix or replace these issues before you sell your home to the next person. Problems with your roof or windows can cause rain water to get into your house and cause damage to your home over time. These repairs are more expensive and typically turn potential homebuyers away from buying a home when these problems are seen.

 

Replacement Estimates

It is important to get repair or replacement estimates on anything and everything that is wrong or broken with your home so that you can either fix it or tell the next home buyer of your home how much it will cost to repair or replace the problem so they can assess if buying the house is worth it for them when they know everything that they have to repair or replace upon buying the house. Replacement estimates can also help potential homebuyers get a clear understanding of what they are in for.

 

Declutter your home

Before selling your home it is important to remember to declutter your home of all your personal belongings. You can leave some furniture for staging or even pay a company to stage your home with furniture but there is no point leaving all your small Knick knacks laying around because it will cause potential homebuyers to spend less time looking at the actual details of the home and what they want but instead show them how awful your taste or interior decorating may be to them.

 

Clean Everything/Replace Floors

Last but not least it is important to remember to clean your house top to bottom before selling it so you can show it to potential buyers in its cleanest form. Also, replace any flooring that has stains or has been destroyed by any previous or current pets you have because often times pet odors can cause people to turn down potential homes during their search for the perfect home.

 

Aside from making sure you complete these tasks before selling your home remember to make your house look how you would want it to look if you were buying it.

5 Things You Need to Complete Before You Buy A New Home

5 Things You Need to Complete Before You Buy A New Home 

Many first-time home buyers do not understand the importance of making sure they have all their ducks lined in a row before the venture into buying a home. This can lead to disappointment when they find out they don’t have everything done that they should before they purchase a new home. Complete these 5 tasks before buying a home to make first time home buyers a smooth and easy process for you and your REALTOR@ who will be helping you not look for your dream home but make it a reality.

 

Credit Score

The most important thing when you are looking to buy a new home is to check make sure you have a decent credit store. It can be impossible for anyone to get a home loan without having a good credit score. You can improve your credit score by opening new credit cards, spending money on them and keeping up on each payment. Remember not to spend more money on your credit card's than you have to pay it back because it is important that you make each payment on time in order to truly build your credit score up. Make sure you don’t open any new credit cards up until a year before you go to apply for a mortgage.

 

Max Budget

The second most important thing to do before you even consider buying a home is to figure out what you can truly afford. Figure out what your ideal home price would be but also what your maximum is so that you do not go over budget at all. It is important to look at a few homes and get a feel for the market and what you can get for your money before deciding how much you can afford to spend. Sometimes first-time home buyers are willing to higher their maximum to get their dream home.

 

Down Payment/ Closing Costs

The third most important thing to do before looking to buy a home is to make sure you not only decide how much you want to spend on the house, but you also have money saved for your down payment and closing costs. To purchase a house, you're going to need a down payment of at least 20 percent of the total house price. Remember that there are also closing costs when it comes to buying a home, so you will need to have extra money aside from the down payment saved up for that.

 

Savings Account

When you are building or maintaining your credit score it may be a good idea to open a savings account so that you can save money each month towards your down payment and closing costs as well as extra money for if something is wrong with your new home or something goes wrong. It is very important to know around how much money you have to save in total, so you can have a set amount taken out of your checks each month going Into your savings account so you know when your goal will be reached.

 

Preapproved Mortgage

 

Lastly, it is important that you go to a bank and apply for a mortgage, so you can get preapproved for a certain amount. Knowing how much you are preapproved for can help you determine how much money you need to have saved in total and how much you can afford to spend on a house that has everything that you need it to. Without a preapproved mortgage you may have more trouble finding your new home.

Get Ready to Sell Your Home

Get Ready to Sell Your Home

When you decide to sell your home, there are several things you can do to make it sell fast. Make a list of items that need to be fixed, need to be cleaned, and need to be updated before you have pictures taken and have it listed. First impressions matter when selling a home, so it should look it's best for top price and quick negotiations.

 

The Exterior

The first thing potential buyers will see is the outside of your home. Even if you list your home with pictures, they will be drawn to the homes curb appeal. Hire a landscaper if your gardens and yard need work, or spend some time doing it yourself. All trash and debris should be cleared from the outside of the home.

If your home is in need of a paint job or exterior repairs, this should be done to raise the asking price.

 

The Interior

The kitchen matters the most in a home. If you are unable to afford all new appliances and granite counter-tops, there are other things you can do to make it appealing. Purchase just one upgraded appliance, instead of all of them. Replace the knobs on your cupboards, and add a new backsplash for cheap but effective upgrades. If your paint colour is neutral, it will make your kitchen more appealing.

Clean your home and get rid of personal items as much as possible. Take your pictures down, patch nail holes, clean your oven, fridge, windows and vacuum every day. Taking the pets out of the house also makes for an easier selling process.

One of the biggest mistakes people make when selling a home is too much stuff laying around. Once the home is clean, consider putting what you don't need and extra furniture in storage. This creates a space for potential buyers to move around and see potential in the rooms.

 

Staging Your Home

Stage your home in a way that there is plenty of space and most of your things are stored and out of sight. This is important because potential buyers want to visualize the home as theirs.

Hiring a staging company is a good idea if you can afford it and have the ability to move your furniture out of your home prior to selling it.

 

 

Be Ready

You should always be ready to show your home once it is listed for sale. If you are still living in your home, make sure it is cleaned daily. Also, if you bake in the evenings it will trigger the feeling of home for buyers.

 

Reconsider Your Timeline

If your home isn't selling at the price you want, reconsider staying in it until you can sell it in a better market. This may gain you thousands over time. Asking a REALTOR® and doing some research on the right seasons to sell will help you prepare.

Considerations When Purchasing Older Homes

Considerations When Purchasing Older Homes

Considerations When Purchasing Older Homes

Buying a beautiful historic home is a dream that many people have for themselves. Plenty of older homes have had upgrades made throughout the decades and centuries to ensure that they are suitable for human occupation. Still though, as you are looking at these timeless beauties, do ask certain questions to ensure that the space is safe for your family.

 

  1. Is the electrical system upgraded?

A home that has seen the better part of the last century may have an electrical system that is not updated. In other words, the system might not meet the latest codes, and it might pose a serious fire hazard. Taking care of this issue is pivotal. A light that won't turn on can be more than just a nuisance; it can be a warning that major issues are happening with the home's electrical system.

 

  1. Is the plumbing upgraded?

While plumbing issues do not necessarily pose as serious of a danger as electrical ones, they can come with some hazards, and they can cause a host of problems in the home. Old pipes, for example, may be filled with rust and on the edge of bursting. If the main hasn't been replaced in a long time, the toilets, sinks and tubs could constantly overflow and get clogged.

 

  1. Has the house been inspected for asbestos?

You don't want to live in a house that has asbestos in it. You might think that you'll move in and take care of the problem later, but disrupting asbestos releases a world of danger onto your family living in the home. The decision to avoid houses with such issues is a wise one.

 

  1. Am I allowed to change the house?

If the house is considered a historical property and is registered under certain guidelines, you might not have the ability to alter the house. For example, if you are thinking of adding an extension onto the house in a few years, you might find that you aren't allowed to do so. Find out this information now so that your house dreams are not stifled later.

 

  1. How are the roof and siding?

Replacing and the entire roof and siding is a task that you may want to attend to later, but you likely don't want to have to handle this prodigious project as soon as you move into the place. Learning how sturdy these structures are and assessing them for issues are useful techniques.

 

  1. Does the house have issues with mold?

Some houses do have moldy areas in them, especially if they have had issues with poor plumbing, bad ventilation or flooding. Taking care of the mold is important before you move in because can mold can jeopardize the health of your family. You also want to make sure that the source of the mold is found; simply wiping it away doesn't eradicate it forever.

 

  1. Is there any termite damage?

Checking the house for signs of termite treatment and damage is another important step before committing to buying it. While pest control companies can certainly help to keep these bugs away, you want to make sure that you know what you're getting into. Also, you need to hire companies that use methods that are safe for your children and your pets to be around.

Planning and Organizing Your Move
Posted on Tue, 15 May 2018, 02:15:00 PM  in Home selling tips
Tags:,  ,    

Planning and Organizing Your Move

Planning and Organizing Your Move

Moving into a new home is a major undertaking, but the earlier you start planning and preparing, the more smoothly the process will go. The reason the process is complicated is that you need to deal with home buying, moving your physical goods, and doing substantial amounts of paperwork all at the same time. To make the process less chaotic, having a written checklist on a large whiteboard which your family can update regularly will make a substantial difference. A key tactic is to break the moving tasks down into phases.

 

While House Hunting

The best time to start planning a move is when you start house hunting. A key first step is creating a complete list of all your furniture and measuring it carefully in all three dimensions. This will help in your house-hunting as it will enable you to see if you current furniture will fit in property you are considering and it is also something that will be very useful during your actual move. At this stage, it is also useful to start pruning your possessions, throwing away anything that is not worth moving, and cutting back on unnecessary expenditures to save up some extra money for moving and new-house decorating expenses.

 

Once You Make an Offer

At this point, your time frame become tighter. If you plan to use a moving company, you should get bids from two or three different firms. If you intend to save money by packing all or some of your own goods, as you do your ordinary shopping, see if you can collect free empty boxes from stores. Most liquor stores give away large numbers of clean empty boxes every day. Continuing pruning your possessions, recycling, selling, or donating to charity anything you have not used in the past year or two. While the Canada Revenue Agency requires that you keep tax records for six years, older records should be shredded.

 

Offer Accepted

Once your offer is accepted and any contingencies are cleared, you should schedule a closing date and a move-in date. Work closely with your moving company to set a precise date as soon as possible as you may be able to save money by selecting an off-peak date or even a less expensive day of the week. Start packing seasonal or other infrequently used items and separating the things you will need immediately in your new home from those which you will entrust to your movers.

 

After You Close

Once you have closed on your new home, start address-change paperwork. Especially if you are moving between provinces, apply for a new health card and driver's license as quickly as possible. Submit change of address information and sign up for mail forwarding with the post office and inform banks, credit card companies, and other relevant organizations of your new address and contact information. You should also arrange for the utilities in your new house, including internet, water, sewer, and electricity to be turned on in your name and the utilities in your old home to be turned over to the new occupants.

 

Moving Day

Create a detailed floor plan of your new home and mark the positions of where each piece of your furniture should go. Careful measurements are crucial so you can avoid last minute adjustments. Schedule a professional cleaning service for your old home the day after you move to ensure it is ready for the new occupants. Once the move is done, order takeout and enjoy your new home.

Spring Porch Decorating Tips

Spring Porch Decorating Tips

Your porch and patio space is crucial to your home's decor. Not only does it send a clear image to visitors and passersby, it can help you plan out the decorations for the rest of your home if you are not sure where to start. Decorating for spring can be especially rewarding, as homeowners who decorate seasonally will find themselves reinvigorated with the raw potential their homes can offer. If you are ready to start decorating your home for the spring, it is strongly recommended for you to take a look at some of these porch decorating tips and see what will work best for your property.

 

Focus on the Brights and Greens

Spring Porch Decorating TipsOne of the most important aspects of the design process is to focus on colors. When you skillfully choose colors that complement the season, you invite new energy around your home. With springtime, bright, warm colors always set a welcoming tone, and implementing plenty of attractive green fixtures can be just what you need. One of the best ways to combine the two is to invest in a few floral arrangement around the patio, especially if you pride yourself on your green thumb and know you can keep the plants thriving.

 

Free Space Up

If your patio is cluttered and does not have much in the way of free space, it can be a good idea to free some space up. This may sound easier said than done in some situations, but getting a good energy flow around the patio can be just what you need to revitalize the area and bring in a fresh appearance for spring. The easiest way to do this is to actually repurpose some of the things that you may have lying around, especially if they fit the color scheme you have in mind for the area.

 

Let the Sunshine in

Find ways to focus on the sunlight in the patio. For many people, this may mean rearranging the existing fixtures and seeing where certain elements may work better when combined with the active lights and shadows on your property. Dark colors can be especially easy to work with if you have active sunlight against the area. Let the sunlight act as a backdrop and arrange fixtures in a way that will lead the eye from one section of the patio space to the next.

 

Play with Drapery

Billowing drapes are always a welcome addition to the patio. Not only can the right drapery lead the eye, but the natural flowing movements can be extremely soothing to see in the area, particularly when set with stronger centerpieces. Apply drapes to open areas and pay attention to the way the wind plays around on your property. You may be pleasantly surprised by some of the results, especially if you have not decorated with drapes in the past. Choose colors that will work with the central decor, and do not be afraid to experiment if you notice something catch your eye.

 

Invest in Some Centerpieces

What do you want your patio to say about you? Having a centerpiece on the property can be one of the most efficient ways for you to focus your decorative energy. A good fixture will not only tie the rest of the furnishings together, but it can also become a definite point of pride for the rest of the property. Tables, swings and tapestries are all attractive centerfold options that you can apply to the area, and be sure to focus on the natural shapes to determine where you want the eye to go when you set everything up.

Seven Ways To Reflect the Summer Season With New Decor In Your Canadian Home

When summer arrives in Canada, you will want to have a home that reflects the season. After a long and difficult winter, it is essential to decorate your home with beautiful summer-themed items. You don't need to spend a fortune to create an inviting home in the summer months, and you can store your autumn or winter items in plastic totes to protect the items. Here are some ways to create a home that has a fresh summertime appearance.

 

Summer Decor 1: Houseplants or Fresh Flowers

Seven Ways To Reflect the Summer Season With New Decor In Your Canadian HomeCheck the gardening area of your favorite home improvement store to determine if it has an assortment of beautiful houseplants or fresh flowers. Having a living plant inside your home gives it an attractive ambience, but fresh flowers are an excellent alternative to create a gorgeous entranceway or dining room table.

 

Summer Decor 2: Lighter Weight Curtains For the Windows

If you have kept the heavyweight draperies closed over your home's windows this winter, then it is time to change to lighter weight curtains. Take down the heavy drapes so that you can polish the windowpanes to permit sunlight to enter. Make sure to wash your window screens and windowsills to keep your lightweight curtains clean when you open the windows.

 

Summer Decor 3: Place Slipcovers On the Upholstered Furniture

Look for stretchy slipcovers that you can place over the upholstered furniture in your home's living room. Choose a brighter color of slipcover such as yellow or orange that will make your home feel more like summer. Remember that you can always remove these slipcovers in the autumn to use a darker color throughout the holiday season.

 

Summer Decor 4: Create a Nautical Theme In a Room

If you live near the ocean or a lake, then create a nautical theme in a room. Visit a local or online home decor store to find items that have a nautical theme, including small wooden lighthouse replicas, porthole mirrors or boat paddles. By placing three nautical types of decorative objects in a room, you can change its entire appearance.

 

Summer Decor 5: Decorative Throw Pillows

When you want an easy and fast way to change the appearance of a room, then buy a few decorative throw pillows. You can place these items on a bed, chair or couch to create a summer ambience with a splash of color or a bright pattern. Remember that throw pillows don't need to have a square shape because you can find pillows that are round or that are in rectangular shapes.

 

Summer Decor 6: New Wall Hangings

If you have used the same artwork, photographs and other wall hangings in your home for several years, then it is time to update these items for the summer. Change the artwork in your home to paintings of beach scenes or summer picnics in a park. Look for vintage-style wooden signs that have slogans about the summer season, and also, change the frames of your photographs to a brighter color.

 

Summer Decor 7: Replace Your Home's Lamps

You may have old lamps that look degraded, but summer is an excellent time to replace these items. Lamps are often discounted in the summer because people don't need to turn the items on as much. Look for lamps that have clear bases that you can fill with artificial flowers or seashells to create a summer ambience in every room of your home. If you have problems with invading mosquitoes inside your home, then use special light bulbs that repel flying insects.

Why to Purchase a Home, Canadian Education System Similarity and Differences to the US System
Posted on Thu, 15 Mar 2018, 02:20:00 PM  in Home buying tips
Tags:,  ,    

The Canadian Education system is very similar to the US system. Students in Canada start school typically at age 5, and attend until age 18 at which point the students have entered grade 12. The province of Quebec has an exception to the grade K-12 system: students in Quebec finish a year earlier. Provinces are responsible for all forms of education, with the Canadian federal government only being responsible for the Royal Military College.

 

Plenty of Tertiary Options Abound Following Grade 12Why to Purchase a Home, Canadian Education System Similarity and Differences to the US System

Following grade 12, Canadian students have the option of attending post-secondary education. There are a wide range of schools, colleges, trade schools, universities, and graduate schools that students can choose from.

 

Large Investments In Tertiary Education Made By Canadian Government

Canada is known for making large investments into its tertiary education system. They spend roughly $20000 per student in tertiary education. As a result, Canada is also known for high levels of tertiary education among their students. Canada has a rate of 53% attainment of tertiary education which puts Canada at the top of the world for post-secondary attainment.

 

Plenty of Vocational Education Opportunities

Vocational education in Canada takes 2-3 years. Students pursuing a vocational path are able to take classes in beauty, business, culinary, fashion design, HVAC, health care, and various other areas. These vocational certificates can be very popular as a means of allowing young people to enter the workforce.

 

High Quality Universities

For those moving on to traditional universities, there are also plenty of high quality options as well. Approximately 16 of the 200 top universities in the world are Canadian. These universities have large endowments and are punching above their weight in their respective fields of influence.

 

Progressive in Advancement of Research

Canada is also known for being progressive in areas of advancing science and technology. Canada is also known for space research. In the days of the space shuttle, the robotic arm for the shuttle was the Canadarm which was made in Canada. Canada is also active in areas of medical, environmental, arctic, agricultural, communications, and defense research. The Canadian federal government has funded several small and large research institutions scattered throughout the country.

 

Fast Tracked Process For Foreign Students Becoming Permanent Residents

The Canadian government has also fast-tracked the process for foreign students looking to become permanent residents of Canada. Once foreign students become permanent residents, they are easily able to work for any employer and eventually acquire Canadian citizenship.

 

Consider Purchasing a Home In Canada

Many people choose to move to Canada for educational reasons because of the attractive environment that the country offers for prospective students. Students can choose from a wide range of universities and different options for courses of study. If you are planning to move to Canada for study, then you will likely want to purchase a home in the country first. In order to do so, you will need to locate a REALTOR® in your desired area first.
