community: What You Need to Know About Lots - 06/04/16 03:23 AM
When shopping for a new home, one of the most important considerations – yet one most people don’t pay enough attention to – is the lot type. Selecting the right one can significantly increase your enjoyment of the home. Picking the wrong one can have the opposite effect.
There are three special types of lots that homeowners tend to find most desirable. Yet, even though they are considered desirable, each has its pros and cons.
Here’s the rundown on each one:
Cul de sacs These are lots located on dead end streets that often feature homes positioned around a large circle of … (0 comments)

community: Shopping for the Right Neighbourhood - 03/06/16 08:30 PM
When most people shop for a new home, they think about the kind of house they want: three bedrooms, two bathrooms, trees in the backyard.
But it also makes sense to shop for the right neighbourhood.
Think about it. In what type of area would you most like to live? What neighbourhood features do you want most? For example, you may want your next neighbourhood to have a good high school, a nearby recreation centre, and close access to public transit.
Make a list of what you want and then go “shopping” by visiting neighbourhoods that meet your criteria.
Your next home is more than … (2 comments)

community: Help Buyers Understand The Area - 02/28/16 10:13 PM
There’s a famous saying in the real estate business: “Location, location, location”. It simply means that where your home is located — the neighbourhood — is just as important to potential buyers as the features of the property itself.
Sellers often make the mistake of creating a long list of home features while ignoring neighbourhood features. They tout the spacious kitchen, the newly renovated bathrooms and the gorgeous backyard deck, but say little about the area.
So when you’re ready to sell your home, sit down and create two lists: home features and neighbourhood features. Buyers want to know both.
On that neighbourhood features … (0 comments)

community: Does Location Really Matter? - 02/20/16 10:38 PM
You find a beautiful home available on the market, but you’re not so sure about the location. Does it really matter all that much? Yes, it does. That’s why you’ll often hear REALTORS® say, “Location, location, location.”
The location of a home you’re considering buying will affect you in two ways.
First, it will affect the property’s future resale value, especially if the neighbourhood is becoming less desirable.
Second, it will affect your lifestyle. If the area doesn’t have the features you want — nearby schools and playgrounds, walking trails, proximity to activities that interest you, such as golf or theatre — you probably … (3 comments)

community: Traffic Matters - 01/22/16 10:59 PM
Like taxes, traffic is a fact of life. So, when you're shopping for a new home, consider how the road situation will affect your commute to work, access to shopping and attractions, and the ability to conveniently reach places you need to go.
After all, it’s difficult to enjoy your new home if you’re constantly sitting in traffic!
Ask your REALTOR® about known congested streets and intersections, school busing routes, and access to public transit.

community: Benefits of a “Moving Out” Sale - 01/01/16 06:27 AM
“Stuff” accumulates. It’s a timeless principle in every household. It accumulates. And accumulates!
Chances are, your basement, garage, and closets are filled with things you don’t want to have to pack and haul on moving day.
The solution? Have a “Moving Out” sale!
Expect a crowd. Bargain hunters love a “Moving Out” sale even more than a Garage Sale because they expect that prices will be lower.
Once you realize that you won’t have to deal with all that clutter on moving day, you’ll love it too.
