gananoque real estate: Dear Ms Emo: Why are there not more homes for sale in Gananoque? - 02/04/11 11:29 AM
Dear Ms Emo: 
Why are there not more homes for sale in Gananoque?  We are seriously considering putting our home on the market but we're now wondering are we missing some vital clue?  Do others know what we do not?  Why are there so few homes for sale in Gananoque at the moment?  Should we wait until the spring or summer to list our home for sale?

gananoque real estate: Thinking of Listing your Gananoque home ? ... Dont Wait 'til Spring !!!! - 01/15/11 01:38 PM
Gananoque, Ontario
Today, in the midst of a blizzard, I was having this very conversation with a Seller.  A home doesn't just instantly become 'sold' without any thought or preparation.  Sheldon had provided a wonderful article for anyone thinking about putting their home on the market regardless of the home being in New Jersey or Gananoque!

gananoque real estate: Dear Ms Emo: Why do I have to meet you at the office first? - 01/09/11 08:08 AM
Gananoque, Ontario
Dear Ms Emo; 
Thank you for getting back to me so quickly with regard to 123 Somewhere St in Anytown.  This looks like a place I would be interested in purchasing but my time is limited.  I see no reason as to why we can't simply meet at the property rather than at your office as you have suggested.   I would like to proceed with an offer if everything is as it seems.  Let's say we meet at the property at 5pm rather than at your office at 4:30 as you requested.  Is there a problem with this?

gananoque real estate: Which comes first in Gananoque? The Realtor or the house? - 01/09/11 04:50 AM
What a fantastic list of questions to ask a Realtor BEFORE you begin your house-hunting experience.  Yes, I said BEFORE!   This is a very thorough article on why you need to hire a Realtor to represent your interests and not those of the Seller alone.  
Susan Emo - Gananoque/Kingston/Brockville

Many times when talking to people about buying a home this question inevitably comes up. Why do I need a real estate agent if I don't have a house picked out? Or why can't I just use the one with the sign in the yard?
Most people tend to rank real estate … (0 comments)

gananoque real estate: Want More Money For Your House? Lower Your Price. - 07/06/10 12:01 PM
Gananoque, ON 
I agree, anniversaries are not always somthing to celebrate! Thanks Phil for another great article. 

Every so often, I have a listing celebrate an anniversary. I hate anniversaries. No broker wants to have a listing that doesn't sell for a year. Every year-old listing has a story of old offers they regret not accepting and a journey of chasing the market. Recently, I had a year-old client dismiss my recommendation of a price reduction with the words "you just want to make a sale." Well, duh. That's what you hired me for, isn't it? The rub here, is … (3 comments)

Gananoque, On
Allie has written a fabulous piece that I think should be required reading.  I wrote an earlier piece that works well with this one.  Thanks Allie!

It’s oftentimes hard to break through to potential clients that you’re an agent who truly cares.  Naturally, one of the main goals of an agent is to help clients buy or sell their home in the pursuit of getting a percentage of the sale.  And that’s great - that’s your job!  But there are many agents who also truly desire to HELP people find the right home or help with a … (2 comments)

gananoque real estate: Remodeling projects that should pay off in Gananoque, ON - 04/18/10 11:13 AM
~Gananoque, ON
Thinking about updating your home?  Read this article first before you spend waste any money!

Just a few years ago you could count on getting the bulk of your money back for almost any home-improvement project you took on. Today merely replacing a toilet seat can feel like throwing caution, and cash, to the wind. According to a study from Remodeling magazine, the average return on value for an upgrade declined from 87% in 2005 to 64% in 2009. But these six new rules will help you maximize your return on your remodeling investment.
Rule No. 1: … (4 comments)

gananoque real estate: Low-Maintenance Lawn Alternatives for Gananoque: Ground Cover - 04/18/10 05:17 AM
Gananoque, ON
This is a very informative article especially as I look out my window observing big bald patches in my lawn due to my dogs having a favourite place to play!

If you want a yard that demands less time, money, and water, consider ground cover rather than a traditional lawn. Americans have long had a soft spot for lawns. Turf grass covers nearly 47 million acres in the U.S., according to the Lawn Institute. But there's plenty that's not green about all that green. For starters, the average household dumps 60 gallons of water a day on conventional … (1 comments)
