Thinking of Buying, Selling or Leasing ?

HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO HELP YOU CREATE CURB APPEAL

  • Remove any clutter in your yard
  • Repair cracked or uneven driveway or walkway surfaces
  • If your lawn has bald spots, apply some top dressing and re-seed. Prune trees and shrubs of dead wood. Weed and mulch flower beds, if you have them. If it is the right time of year, consider buying some flower-filled planters to enhance the eye appeal of your property. Make sure your lawn is mowed regularly. Ensure that the compost area is tidy.
  • Are your windows and walls clean?
  • Does your front door need paint?
  • Ensure your eaves and downspouts are clear of debris and in good repair.
  • Is your backyard deck and walkway clean? If not, use a power washer and do any necessary painting, staining or sealing.
  • Do all outside lights work? Replace any burned out bulbs, and clean fixtures of dirt and cobwebs.


When you have completed the curb appeal inspection, carefully check the rest of your home’s exterior.

Buying a home can be a daunting and overwhelming task. The decision to purchase a home is one that should not be taken lightly or made hastily, which is why your search for the perfect home should begin with me. I take pride  and dedication in helping you make well-informed real estate choices, and will help guide you through every stage of the home buying process.

In a balanced market, the number of homes equals the estimated number of potential buyers, creating an equilibrium that stabilizes house prices. This scenario benefits both the seller and consumer as it leads to the acceptance of reasonable offers in an appropriate time-frame.

Let me help you find the right home, in the right neighbourhood, at the best price.

Buying

In leasing it is very important to find the right tenant, whether in a residential or commercial applications. 


Both tenant and landlords should have clearly stated responsibilities in the form of a lease contract which will enable a good relationship between the two parties.

Backround checks should be done both on tenants and landlords which will provide in helping find a great tenant and a great landlord.


Moving into a new home is exciting, but getting your current home ready to sell can sometimes get overwhelming. Buyers are expecting the "I am at Home Feeling" the moment they walk through your door. Bathrooms with outdated tiles, leaking faucets and dingy kitchen counters is not the impression you want to portray to potential buyers. 

Knowing where to put your money will be essential in getting your home ready for the market. This will  increase traffic  and consequently get your house Sold.

Think of your house as a product about to go on the market where it is probably competing with multiple properties in your area.

It needs to show well – which means clutter-free and well kept.

I am an agent who believes that every house should be shown at  its best. Therefore I am a believer in Home Staging as an imperative process to a sucesseful sell  in a competitive market. Home staging will create and present your house to feel like home to potential home buyers.

Leasing 

Both Tenant and Landlord should be well informed on both the Residential Tenancies Act and the Commercial Tenancies Act. Knowing your rights will be beneficial for both Tenant and Landlord in the long run.


As a realtor I provide the Landlord with a detail listing in the MLS.ca system. Book showings, conduct credit checks, as well as review references on potential tenants.

I help Tenants find properties that are tailored to their needs. I assist with the completion of the application proccess and help negotiate a lease agreement that works for both Tenant and Landlord.

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU BUY

  • Get Your Finances In Order - Do you know how much house you can afford? It is important you talk to a lender and secure a mortgage pre-approval. Getting familiar with mortgage structure and options will help you make not only a well informed decision but it is crucial to your home buying experience.
  • Needs vs. Want - Buying a house should be an enjoyable experience even if you have a limited budget. Buyers often find themselves torn between what they Need and what they Want. It is essential for you as a  buyer to realize what's critically important to you versus what you are flexible on. Conveying this to your real estate agent early on will make the house hunting process much smoother.
  • Location, Location. Location -  Is your prospective property located near all the amenities  important to you? - Whether it is the proximity to public transportation, hospital, or schools, you should not hesitate to contemplate your future neighbourhood's geographical situation. This process can be easily achieved with an agent who is knowledgeable in the desired neighbourhood.
  • Get To Know The Hidden Fees - Buyers should be aware of all the hidden fees when purchasing a property. Costs such as Home Inspections, Taxes, Closing Costs and Maintenance Fees should be accounted for and added to your final purchase price.
