If you need to sell your home in the next month or two, you might be worried. After all, aren’t spring and summer the ideal seasons to list your property?


Most people think that if you list during a Pandemic and in November or December, you might have difficulties attracting buyers and getting the best price for your home. Right? No, not at this time!  While it’s true that spring and summer are traditionally busy periods in the real estate market, properties do sell every month of the year. It just so happens that our market is very active at this time and some properties are seeing more than one offer! 


It's actually a sellers market at the moment for detached homes as well as the townhome market is very active!  That would mean there is not as many homes on the market for buyers to choose from, but there are still buyers out looking for homes! Your property will likely sell fairly quickly; perhaps you’ll even get multiple offers.


So, if you’re thinking of selling, you’ll need to know three things:


• What comparable homes are selling for at this time of year.


• How long homes are taking to sell, on average.


• How to maximize your sale price!


If you're looking to get your home marketed effectively, so to attract as many buyers and pique their interest in making an offer, please feel free to contact me for a FREE evaluation of your home!


I'll let you know how I can help you to increase your sales price and get you the very most money for your home!  Call me for more details!

Whether you're painting your home to prepare it for sale, or simply to make it more attractive for your own enjoyment, choosing the right colour is super important! A colour isn't just a matter of taste, it's also, to a large extent, about the emotions it elicits.


If you're painting your foyer, for example, you may want it to seem warm and welcoming. So, light, warmer tones might be appropriate as that colour is often interpreted as friendly.


In your living room, you may want to create an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation. In that case, consider shades of greens or grays as those colours communicate peacefulness and calm.


Want the rec room to look vibrant and energetic? Brighter colours communicate those emotions, possibly shades of reds.


Where do you find more information about colour psychology? There are plenty of charts available online. Just Google "colour psychology charts". They can help you select just the right colour to convey the feeling you want for a room.


Of course, if all else fails, you can't go wrong with soft beiges, or light gray/beiges especially when selling your home. Neutral colours are often interpreted as reliable and buyers are able to picture their own furniture and items in a more neutral palet.


Have questions about painting and other fix-ups that will help sell your home faster and for the best price? Give me a call!

Imagine you're looking for a new home and you have a list of all the features you want, just like you would have a grocery shopping list. However, when you explore the homes currently on the market, none are meeting all your criteria. What do you do?


You have a few good options. First, you can take a second look at your list. Does your new home need every single feature on it? Are there one or two features you can do without? For example, can you settle for a smaller kitchen assuming the property has everything else you want?  Often, buying a home that's close to perfect is perfect enough.


Second, consider what features you might be able to add to a home later, by way of a renovation or other improvement. If a property doesn't have a finished basement, for example, you might be able to get that done down the road.  Indeed, there are probably many features you can add later to an otherwise desirable property.


Finally, consider the current level of activity in the local real estate market. Is it likely that a lot of new homes will be coming on the market soon? If so, your perfect home may come up on the market within the next few weeks or sooner!


In that situation, make sure you arrange to get immediate alerts for newly listed homes that meet your criteria. You'll want to jump on each new opportunity before other buyers learn of the listing.


The good news is, in most cases you should be able to find and buy a great home, with most — if not all — of the features you want!
