We put a lot of time and effort into putting a home on the market. It takes several hours to complete the photos, measuring and 3D virtual tours, but the time is time well spent! It is so important to make what is probably your biggest asset look as desirable as possible when it hits the market. I never understand why some homes are initially put onto the market with very few, or even no pictures. Your home will get most attention when it first hits the market, so why wouldn't you want it looking its best? When we list a home we walk around checking everything looks good before we start taking pictures. The 3D tours are awesome, they really showcase the property and people love viewing them, but they are also very detailed so everything needs to look tidy and de-cluttered. We normally end up moving some things around, but we also give the homeowner tips on what to do before we start taking pictures and video. When potential buyers view you property, the less they feel they need to do, the more it will appeal to them. Here are a selection of some of the tips we give.

De Clutter & Clean

A lot of people (including us) have too much stuff in their house. We usually suggest if there is room, move stuff into the garage (unless the garage is gorgeous) or rent a storage container. People want to view a de-cluttered house and the property will look much better with that 'staged' look. Clean off kitchen counters and take any magnets etc off of the fridge doors. Pack up your knicknacks, or if you really don't want or need it either donate or throw it (perfect opportunity for a purge). Ensure the property is cleaned throughout. 

De Personalize 

There is nothing wrong with having pictures of your loved ones all around your house, or your large collection of a particular art throughout the house, but you want people to visualize themselves living in the property, so de-personalize it a little.

A Fresh Coat Of Paint (Done Properly) Goes A Long Way

If any of the rooms need a fresh coat of paint, or a carpet needs stretching, then try and get it done.Ensure you use subtle, neutral colours (don't let buyers describe your home as the one with the bright orange bathroom!) We can look at your property and advise on what to do.

 

Major Work

Some people have said that they are thinking about getting their basement developed before putting their house on the market. Sometimes this isn't economically viable. In most cases you will not get the money back that you have spend on the basement development! We can certainly advise you on the best way to go.

Small Repairs

Patch, paint and repair any damage to the walls or doors. Finish any unfinished DIY projects. Replace any blown bulbs, replace any cracked tiles (if possible) and fix any leaky taps. If you are thinking about getting new bedspreads, now may be the time to do so.

Curb Appeal

Mow the lawn and keep the paths well cleared. Trim any over grown bushes, repair any broken fences and if possible (depending on the time of year) paint any faded paint.

Pets

We absolutely love our dogs, we have 2 gorgeous German Shepherds. Sometimes you can definately smell that pet smell inside a home. If this is the case ensure that your carpets have been cleaned and any poop cleaned up from the yard. Ensure any cat litter trays are cleaned out before each showing. Also arrange to have your dog taken out before each showing. If you have cats we always warn any Realtors showing not to let the cat out!

 

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

We have many clients who have pets and we have two German Shepherds, two cats and a rabbit ourselves. Moving can be a stressful time and can make your pets anxious as well. Here are some tips to try and make life a little less stressful for your pets.

 

  • Ensure you pack easily accessible food for your pet (and favourite toys). Also ensure that you have easy access to any medication that your pet may be on.
  • When you transport your pet to your new home, ensure that your pet is secure until you get into your new home. 
  • Once in your new home try and make your pet as secure as possible. If your pet is a dog or cat, maybe you can already have moved their favorite bed or blanket into a quiet part of the house! This will ensure that they have familiar objects and smells around them.
  • It is great idea to have you pet stay with a friend who is familiar to them during your moving process.
  • After you have moved ensure that you update their tags or microchip details with the new address.
  • Fish can be easily trumatized whilst being moved. It is a good idea to seek advice from a local aquarium store.

Christmas is generally a slow time for selling real estate as potential buyers are busy organizing their Christmas and many budgets are strained, but there are always some determined house hunters braving the elements. Having a stylishly decorated home can make all the difference! Decorating your home at Christmas is a very personal thing, but if your home is on the market over the Christmas period, make your decorations as neutral as possible. An example of this would be to step away from inflatable snowmen and big light displays. I think that some of the bright decorations i see around look very festive, but if your home is on the market you want simple lighting to show off the properties architecture or draw attention to the gorgeous fir tree in the yard!

Inside your home before you put up any Christmas decorations ensure your home is de cluttered and staged. Adding Christmas decorations to an already cluttered looking space just ads to the overcrowding! Don't go overkill on the decorating and ensure that your Christmas decor compliments your homes decor. If you have a gorgeous view from a window don't block it with stick on snowflakes! If you have a gorgeous fireplace don't hide it behind Christmas stockings!

A tall Christmas tree can really show off an open to above space, but make sure that the tree isn't so wide it overwhelms the space! I recently saw a friends Christmas tree in their home and it looked great. It was simple but effective and looked really nice! It had small white icicle lights and pale blue and white glass balls which looked really effective!

 

THIS CHRISTMAS KEEP IT SIMPLE, BUT NEXT CHRISTMAS WHEN YOU ARE IN YOUR NEW HOME, YOU CAN HAVE WHATEVER DECORATIONS YOU WANT!

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about decorating during the Christmas period or if you have any other real estate questions!

 

Take care, Julie.

Hi, with the cold weather it is important to winterise your outside taps....even if they are frost free ones. The reason I say about frost free ones, is because if they were not installed at the correct angle, they can still freeze, causing burst pipes.

STEP ONE

Close the shut off valve inside the home, you may have multiple shut off valves depending on how many taps you have. Most homes however will have all outside taps leading to one shut off valve.

STEP TWO

Open the outside taps and allow them to drain. Leave it open incase the tap pressures up due to a faulty shut off valve. Check throughout the winter to make sure no icicles are forming due to a leaky shut off valve.

STEP THREE

Go back to your shut off valve inside the house with a bucket, place the bucket underneath the shut off valve and open the bleeder valve. This is a little screw valve normally located at the shut off valve. Opening this valve will remove any remaining water from the pipe in the wall. Close the bleeder valve and your exterior water taps are winterized.

 

 

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

 

Stay warm, Julie
