The Value of Home Staging
 
 
Working as a real estate agent in Richmond Hill, I often meet with sellers who are in the beginning stages of wanting to sell their home.  A common misconception that I’ve observed                         

throughout the years is that sellers don’t realize that a house is not just put up for sale and poof…it sells!  

 
There are several steps involved in preparing a house for sale. There is a very well known name/concept for this process also known as Home Staging. Home Staging is the process of preparing a house for sale in order to make it as appealing to potential buyers and maximize the resale value.
 
Here are some tips that I pass along to my clients and that I’d like to share with you. Read More...

 

Home Values

Reno's That Add The Most Value 

 

At last, the spring is upon us and you may have been thinking about selling your home.  There are certain renovations that will give you the most bang for your buck including:
 
Kitchen – prospective buyers will be looking at the kitchen first and foremost since it is considered the “hub of the home”.  Since most living happens in the kitchen, it is worthwhile ensuring that the kitchen has a good flow and functional.  Countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardware and neutral colors will ensure that the kitchen looks clean and inviting.
 
Bathroom – The bathroom renovation will be key in obtaining a greater return on investment (ROI) as this is the next area where people will be spending a great deal of time getting ready for the day.  Tiling, updating countertops, replacing bathtubs, or installing glass showers, and installing new hardware will ensure that buyers envision themselves relaxing in an oasis. Read More...

 

Buying a York Region Home 

 

Steps Involved in Helping First Time Home Buyers Find Their Dream Homes in York Region and Beyond
 
As any 1st time buyer knows, the process of finding a home can be a stressful process, especially it being the first time.  There are many factors to consider when buying a home which are completely foreign to a new buyer and there are so many parts and processes involved that an experienced realtor like myself can assist with.
 
Step 1:   Financing
 
The pre-approval is always the first thing I ask for before I can determine an action plan for my buyers. This is the budget will be for purchasing a home.  A pre-approval is what you will need from either the bank or a mortgage specialist.  This is the amount that a lender will lend for the mortgage after considering several factors such as your income, your assets and your liabilities.  Once all factors are considered, they will provide you with a maximum amount that can be spent without over-leveraging. 
I’ve seen it happen where buyers create a budget but haven’t taken all factors into consideration and end up being declined for a mortgage on a home that they do not qualify for.  Or on the other hand, a buyer may be very conservative in their spending and not realize that they may be able to increase their budget without over-leveraging themselves and, in turn, qualify for a better property with higher Return on Investment (ROI).
