When to Consider a Less-Than-Ideal Home

When to Consider a Less-Than-Ideal Home

Obviously, when you’re searching for a new home, you want to find one that is ideal. It should be your next dream home. However, sometimes it pays to consider at least some properties that don’t meet all your criteria. After all, you never know whether one of them is actually your next dream home - in disguise!

When - Christine Monckton

Say you’re looking for a home with a beautiful kitchen - the kind you envy on TV cooking shows. Then, you view a property that has everything you need - except that big kitchen. 

Ask yourself these questions: 

1. Can you fix it? 
Perhaps some redecorating or a renovation can turn that so-so kitchen into one you’ve always wanted. Take some time to imagine the possibilities. 

2. Can you live with it? 
The kitchen might not have everything you want. It may be smaller than you’d hoped. But, can you make it work? Can you compromise a little given that the home has so many of the other features you want? Perhaps you can live with a smaller kitchen - that still looks great. 

If you need help considering the possibilities and understanding your options, 
call Christine today 416-420-6662.

Viewing Your Home From A Buyer’s Perspective

Viewing Your Home From A Buyer’s Perspective

Viewing Your Home From A Buyers Perspective - Halton Hills Georgetown Acton - Christine Monckton

There is an old adage in marketing and sales: Before trying to sell something, you need to put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. When it’s time to sell your home, you’ll need to do the same thing. Imagine that you’re the potential buyer and then view your property from that perspective.

Start with what a buyer sees first, the outside of your property from the curb. Does your home look inviting and attractive? Are there ways you can improve the look of your home from this vantage point?

It may be as simple as trimming the hedges.

Then, walk into your home through the main entrance. What is your first impression? Does your home look clean, uncluttered, and appealing from the foyer? Is there anything you can do to improve the look?

Even a small change, such as moving a coat rack that is cluttering the space, can be a significant improvement.

Finally, tour the rest of your home. Most buyers viewing homes will visit the kitchen, the living room, and other rooms on the main floor and then check out the upstairs bedrooms. As you are pretending to be a potential buyer and looking around, what impression are you getting? What features do you especially like? What don’t you like? Are there any issues that concern you?

Don’t forget to view your garage and backyard too.

By doing this simple exercise, you’ll be able to see what changes and improvements will make your home show better.

Want more ideas on how to sell your home faster and for the best price? Call today.
