New homes also involve a new community, and you should take the time to learn about your new community. What you look for in a community can vary a great deal, depending on your lifestyle and life stage. The downtown high-rise condo that is perfect for young professionals or mature adults may not suit young families. Conversely, suburban communities that are great for families may not offer what singles and retirees are looking for. There’s no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ community, just the one that’s right for you!
If you’re thinking of selling your home this Spring, consider the value that home staging can add to your property. Stats tell us that if a home is staged, it sells 90 per cent faster than an unstated counterpart. That’s a huge difference! While each home is unique and requires different strategies, there are a few things that anyone can do to grab the attention of buyers.
The holiday season has drawn to a close, and if your family is anything like mine, you’re staring at a heap of generously given gifts and decorations to put away. And you’re probably thinking: ‘Wow, that’s a lot of stuff!’ That huge influx of new stuff can make a home feel cluttered instantly. Working with my frequently overwhelmed clients to maximize and redesign their spaces, I’ve come up with a simple decluttering method that will help calm any space down quickly, and works perfectly for that pile under the tree.
Moving a family is stressful and if the relocation comes with another emotional event like a death in the family, divorce or job loss, the transition hardly feels like a party. But while it probably won’t be immediately obvious, with careful planning and generous discussion, your child can benefit from a move.
