Market Updates

During the process of buying or selling a home, countless questions are bound to surface regardless of how "seasoned" you are in Real Estate.  Some questions are easily answered, however others may require a bit of research and study.   I understand how difficult it can be to sift through the mountain of information out there in order to find answers that are relevant and meaningful to you.  

As a firm believer in "knowledge is power," I do my best to educate and inform my Buyers and Sellers about the current market conditions and the process involved once you have made the decision to move.     

If you would like to receive regular Market Updates or newsletters please contact me at dodi.t@shaw.ca or call me at 604-644-3634

Are you thinking of selling your home?


Before your REALTOR® begins showing it, you will want to make sure it’s in tip-top condition. An attractive, well-kept home generally has a better chance of selling faster. Minor exterior and interior improvements can add value to your home and don’t require a large renovation bill. Think back to what first attracted you to your home; now determine how best to highlight and improve these features.

Here are a few ideas to help you perk-up your home’s appearance. Consult with your Realtor to see what types of improvements make the most sense.

Start with the outside

An inviting exterior ensures that potential buyers will inspect the interior:

  • Keep lawns and gardens well maintained.
  • Ensure garage and porch areas are free of clutter and refuse.
  • Repair loose siding or pavement.
  • Replace any damaged roof shingles, eaves troughs or cracked windows.
  • Wash windows, gutters, mailbox and doors.
  • Secure loose shutters or awnings.

 The inside story

You can do a lot to improve the inside of your home without spending a great deal of money. Two primary areas to keep in mind are the kitchen and bathroom.

  • Ensure kitchen and bathrooms are sparkling clean.
  • Repair dripping facets and showerheads.
  • Steam clean or replace carpets if necessary.
  • Thoroughly clean every room in the house, removing all clutter.
  • Repaint dingy walls or kitchen cabinets with a neutral colour.
  • Replace worn or outdated countertops and cracked light-switch plates.
  • Remove any items (like chandeliers) that won't be included in the sale of the home.

Remember, the more effort put into the initial clean up, the easier it will be to keep your home looking its best for prospective buyers. As well, keep in mind rooms that are too cluttered will give the impression they're much smaller than their true size. Try to create a feeling of spaciousness when conducting your spruce-up.

Pre-showing checklist

  • As a courtesy to buyers, leave the house while the Realtor is conducting a showing.
  • Keep pets out of the way – preferably out of your house during the showing.
  • Ensure that every room is tidy, well aired and adequately lit.
  • Don't keep money, jewellery and small valuables in plain sight during a showing, put them in a hidden, secure place.
  • Open drapes to maximize natural light.
  • Keep all stairways and hallways clear.
  • Use finishing touches like fresh flowers and candles.

By following these relatively simple tips, you'll feel proud of your home and potential purchasers are sure to appreciate its beauty.
