1. Get Clean Surfaces

From countertops to cabinetry, your home will look luxurious if it looks well-maintained and properly updated. Countertops need to be pristine to attract the higher bracket of buyer. While your counters should ideally be granite or marble, the hottest countertop materials right now, the simplest thing you can do is simply clear them off and scrub them down. Clutter is not luxury, so keep everything to a minimum on the counters. If they need fixed or replaced, do so. Even a simple coat of the right finisher can be enough to add that luxurious feel.

A “For Sale” sign is often the very first indicator that your home is on the market, so it pays to ensure it’s doing its job. Here are a few tips to help you make your “For Sale” sign catch people’s eyes and attract potential buyers.

1. Location, Location, Location

While this may seem like a no-brainer, it’s incredible how many people place their “For Sale” signs in strange places on the property. Make sure you can clearly see the sign from multiple angles for as much time as possible. The easiest way to do this is to hop in your car and slowly drive by your home. You should put the sign in the exact spot where it will be seen for the most amount of time by someone driving by. This is called “maximum exposure” and should be used.

Here are some decorating choices you can make to help your home sell faster.

1. Declutter, Declutter, Declutter

Clutter makes rooms look smaller, homes unkempt, and drives away buyers quicker than a lawn that’s been replaced with concrete. Whenever you show off a home, you have to declutter.

1. Make Time. Then Make More

Moving takes longer than you think. No matter how long you think it will take, add time to that amount. There are almost always things that happen when packing, so it’s best to give yourself as much time as possible. You don’t need most of your belongings every single day, so start packing the non-essentials early. Even if you finish ahead of time, you can relax before packing up the essentials and heading to your new home.

2 Get Rid of Stuff First

This is often referred to as the “Donate, Trash, Keep” phase, where you put out three bags and fill them with things you want to donate, things you want to throw

The age of cookie cutter homes is getting shortened thanks to a new city ordinance regarding infills. The City of Edmonton has created a new set of rules that builders must follow when building infills in Edmonton’s mature neighbourhoods. In addition to using a minimum of three materials for the facade, builders can no longer put identical homes side-by-side.

Edmonton’s south side has been growing steadily for the past couple of decades and many communities feature near-identical homes in high frequency, which some people criticize as not being aesthetically pleasing for a neighbourhood overall.
