It’s summer here in Ottawa. I’m in my backyard working on a new patio. I’m already thinking about ‘my next project’.
It’s currently a lovely sunny day. I am looking forward to enjoying a coffee on the new patio. And I see a couple of quick projects that deserve a spot at the top of the list.
Thinking of selling your home this year? I’ve got some projects for you to think about. These will make life more enjoyable for you. And will get the outside of your ready for sale.
Townhouses can be freehold or part of a condominium. What you CAN do will depend on the type of townhome you are selling.
Ignore the fact you might be working with a tiny front yard. Put aside your concerns about shared walls and condo restrictions that make it difficult to adapt generic curb appeal advice. In this post, I’ll help you achieve the curb appeal your neighbours would die for.
Selling your home can feel overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be complicated. Put in a little effort before you list your home, and you can save yourself hours of time and stress down the road.
But what is fair market value? How is it determined? And how is it different from market value or appraised value? Several factors determine the FMV and every property is different. Just like a puzzle has many pieces to see the entire picture. Your home’s fair market value is determined by many pieces of information, to see the total value when compared to other homes.
When there is ‘balance’ in the real estate market between supply and demand, the traditional strategies work just fine. In this post, I cover those so that you understand what gets ingrained into a real estate agent’s head over the years. BUT we are NOT in ‘balance’. We have a low supply of houses coming onto the market for sale. We also have incredibly high demand for houses from buyers who WANT to buy NOW!
So how does a real estate agent, me for example, help a buyer figure out a ‘price’ on a home? And help the buyer submit a winning offer?
