WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU WORK WITH ME
 
THE AGENT WHO PUTS YOUR FIRST
As a consumer, just like you, I look for value when seeking the services of a professional. Whether its a car dealership getting my car serviced, or a lawn service to care for my lawn. I go out of my way to go to a particular car dealership because they always wash my car inside and out at no extra charge.

Many years ago, before I became a real estate professional  I was a single mother raising two children. I was working as a "secretary, better known today as an Administrative Assistant. I was on a bi-weekly salary and depended on those cheques to maintain myself and my children.

ODOURS CAN DETER BUYERSHaving a fresh clean scent in your home is very inviting, or the pleasant odour of cookies or bread baking in the oven!!   Strong plug-ins, or harsh cooking odours are one way to discourage buyers from taking a careful look at your home and usually will not take the time to look at the home seriously, especially if someone is allergic to a specific odour.
I recall, several years ago looking for a very high end home for one of my clients.  I arranged several viewings, and we are talking homes priced close to $1,000,000. This was a large, … (2 comments)

YOU CAN GET A GOOD DEAL ON A POWER OF SALE
TRUTH OR MYTH?
Sometimes I get investors or clients asking me about Power of Sale properties because they think they can “get a good deal” and potentially purchase the property at less than market value.
That isn’t always the case, as the Bank or Financial Institution must sell the property at fair market value, or risk being sued by the previous owner for selling at a lower amount. The Bank must get at least the outstanding amount owing on the property, plus sufficient funds to pay the commission, and any surplus is paid … (0 comments)

ARE YOU CONSIDERING LEASING A FURNACE OR AIR CONDITIONER?The cost of buying a new furnace or Central Air Conditioning can be a large expense especially if you have to buy both furnace and AC.
Although the new high efficiency units can save you money over time, the initial expense is not something everyone can afford.
Thus, renting Furnaces and Central Air Conditioning units has become popular in recent years.
The one thing consumers should be cautious about before signing that rental agreement is to read the fine print.  Most agreements that I have seen are open ended agreements, which means there is no ending date.
