Are You Ready to Buy a New Home?

Make Sure You’re Ready
Few joys can match the pride of owning a home, but the responsibility can also come with sacrifices—from the financial commitment to the required care and maintenance. You’ll want to be sure both fit within your current or preferred lifestyle.

Is your bank account ready? Check it twice.
Buying a home is likely the most significant and largest purchase of your life. Do it right with the help of a REALTOR® and avoid regretting taking on more than you should. It’s ideal to have saved up some money and manage any debt. In a couple steps, you can determine how much you can afford. Your Realtor can assist in helping you get a pre approval, or as a very first step, show you how to use an online mortgage calculator.

Is right now a good time to buy?
Markets go up, markets go down and even the most informed experts can’t accurately predict when a market will peak or bottom out. If you’re buying a home as a long-term investment (and for long-term enjoyment), you should be protected from short-term changes in the market. Instead, focus on picking a home that meets your and your family’s needs.

Once you’ve decided you’re ready to buy, your Realtor can guide you through the entire process so you can purchase with confidence and protection.




Five Outdoor Spring Cleaning Tasks You Can Do in a Weekend

For Canadians, every change of season brings with it around-the-house chores to check off your to-do list. To help you get the outside of your home ready for the summer, here are eight tasks you can manage to do in a single weekend.

1. Clean out your shed
Whether it’s neatly packed or filled to the max, any outdoor storage space will benefit from a spring clean.

2. Refresh your deck, patio or walkways
Boost your home’s curb appeal by cleaning up wear and tear like salt and leaf stains.

3. Wash your vinyl siding
Vinyl siding is sure to look worse for wear after the winter. For an all-purpose siding cleaning solution, mix about three parts water to one part vinegar.

4. Get your BBQ ready
Start by firing up your grill to burn off any leftover grime before using a wire BBQ brush. Next, disconnect the gas or propane and let the grills cool before removing and soaking in a bucket or other plastic container filled with hot water and dish soap.

5. Clean your window tracks
While washing curtains, windows, and screens is a spring cleaning must-do, don’t forget to look at interior and exterior window tracks too.
