Now that we are into February, The Resolution List may have lost some of its gusto. Pounds have a nagging way of staying put and those drive thru's are just too darn easy. Maybe this is the year you have decided to purchase a cottage or investment property, so I can help you put that resolution into practice, if making more money was on your list. Let me know if you would like more info on either one.
And this year should continue to be a good year for home sales as interest rates remain low and demand still outweighs supply. If you have been thinking about selling, this may be the year, as forecasts for 2017 and 2018 are not so positive. Even though we are only in February the market is definitely brisk and warmer weather sure brings out the buyers. And if you would like an up-to-date evaluation on your home, by all means just get in touch. You may be richer than you think...
And are you maintaining your home to keep its value on par with your neighbours? This may be the perfect time of year to update your dated lighting fixtures and take advantage of new energy saving bulbs to boot. Or many stores have flooring on sale this time of year so would be an ideal time to make this improvement. This is also a good time to do some general maintenance like cleaning heating vents which will help with indoor pollutants or mould buildup. Also inspecting and replacing smoke alarms or fire extinguishers, replacing filters in furnaces or air cleaners. Maintenance + improvements go hand in hand in preserving the top value for your home. There are other tips on my website. And if you would like my suggestions as to what you should do to maximize your home's value, I'd be glad to stop by.
And don't forget your sweetie this month or it could be a long, chilly winter. I have a delicious chocolate breakfast or dessert for your Valentine on my website. Spring is just around the corner so we've made it through the worst part. Days are getting longer...
All the Best,
Rick and Judy
