Making sense of a crazy market

by Scott Grace on February 26, 2014

Unless you’re a real estate expert, you probably look at the market and think things are pretty confusing. Even a bit crazy! You hear news about “bubbles bursting”, “higher or lower home sales in a particular month”, “new home starts” that are up or down, and on and on it goes.



It’s a lot of news and a lot of jargon.


If you’re thinking of selling your home within the next year or two, you will want to understand what’s happening in the market so you can make the right decisions and get a clear sense of what to expect. So, how do you make sense of it all?


That’s where a good REALTOR® can help.


Even if you don’t have any definite plans to move in the near future, a REALTOR® who is an expert in the local marketplace can help you understand what homes in a particular neighbourhood are selling for, and what you can expect to get should you decide to list your property.


Getting to know a REALTOR® also means you’ll have a trusted expert to talk to from time to time, when you have real estate-related questions.


You’ll have someone you can think of as “Your REALTOR®”.


Plus, when the time comes to sell your property, you won’t have to deal with a stranger. Instead, you’ll be able to work with a REALTOR® that you know well — and who knows YOU. Overall, that will make the buying and selling process go more smoothly and more successfully.

When is it time to talk to a REALTOR®?

by Scott Grace on January 29, 2014

Many people only see a doctor when they’re sick or have some other health concern. On the other hand, some people visit a doctor regularly for check-ups, to ask questions and get advice, and to maintain good health.


Which do you think is the better approach? Obviously, the second one!


The same thing is true when it comes to real estate. Even if you have no current plans to buy or sell a home, there are many reasons to talk to a REALTOR® regularly in order to maintain your good “real estate” health. For example, you can:


  • Get an assessment of the current market value of your home, so you can make an informed decision about whether to stay or move.


  • Ask about the state of the local real estate market (which may be vastly different than what you hear on the national news.)


  • Find out what homes are currently selling for in the area.


  • Learn what’s currently available on the market, especially in neighbourhoods you would like to live in and that are within your budget.


  • Ask for a contractor recommendation.


In fact, it’s a good idea to have a chat with your REALTOR® once or twice a year, even if it’s just to say hello.


You want to build a relationship with a good REALTOR® who understands (and cares about) you and your needs. That way, when it does come time for you to make a move, you’re dealing with a REALTOR® you already know and trust.

Doorways to Better Living Spaces

by Scott Grace on December 20, 2013

When people renovate or remodel a room, they almost always overlook the door. However, changing the style of an interior door, or adding a new one, can dramatically change the look of a living space – often for the better. The most common type of door is the traditional solid 6-panel door. But there are many other choices available. Want to add light and a greater sense of space to a room? Consider a door with glass panels. Do you have an interior door that gets in the way when opened?
Change it to a bi-fold door, which cuts the distance of the swing in half. There are also specialty doors that are designed to block noise, and sliding doors that tuck neatly into the wall when opened. Interior doors are typically much less expensive than their exterior counterparts. So making the decision to upgrade or add a door to a room is an affordable design option.
Visit a door showroom and explore what’s available.


How to Choose the Right Size HDTV

by Scott Grace on November 13, 2013

If you don’t own one already, you may be tempted to purchase a widescreen digital television to enjoy your favourite movies, shows and sports programs. However, it can be difficult to select the right screen size, especially if you’ve been accustomed to viewing a TV with a traditional 4:3 screen.
When it comes to size, there are many factors that come into play, such as screen resolution and personal preference. However, the last thing you want is to purchase an HDTV that is too small for the room, or so big that it dominates the space.
Here’s a tip:
The rule of thumb is to take the distance you’ll be sitting from the television
and multiple by five to get the screen size you need. So if you’ll be sitting eight feet away, you’ll want to look at HDTVs with screens that are in the 35-45 inch range. A good electronics dealer can help you make the best choice.
