Everyone is familiar with house-hunting, even if they’ve never actually done it before. You see it on television all the time, and lots of people talk about their personal home-buying experiences. But what about closing on a sale? What happens with that, and how long does it take?

Once your offer to purchase a property is accepted and all the proper paperwork is signed, you’ll have agreed upon a ‘closing date’ with the seller. This is the date when the property officially switches from their ownership to yours. The closing date can be weeks or months from the date you sign the paperwork – and a lot goes into deciding on a date.

Anywhere from 30-90 days is fairly typical, and provides both parties with the needed time to pack and make moving

Many people just slap a for sale sign on the front lawn and hope that potential buyers will see the hidden potential your home has to offer. More often than not, however, a lot of needed cosmetic work can overwhelm a buyer and scare them off. Why not do what you can to reduce that workload for a buyer and help ensure your home sells more quickly.

Flooring

At the very least make sure it is clean. Rent a steam cleaner for carpeting or scrub it by hand if its tile, wood or laminate. If it’s in the budget, replace any flooring that is plain unsightly. If a carpet is worn right out or stained beyond repair, or some tiles are cracked, consider fixing them in advance of putting the home up for sale.

Walls

Again, clean them! Make sure there are no

Here is a helpful checklist of things to look at when buying a home. Carry it with you to remind you of what you should be investigating when reviewing potential new homes.

1. Basic structure

Look around the outside of the home for things like cracks in the foundation, stress cracks in the interior drywall, or water staining on both the ceilings and the basement floor/walls. Check how old the roofing is.

2. Major utilities

Make sure you know what is in the home, from the type of wiring, to the heating and cooling sources. It’s also important to check on the age of things like the hot water tank, and furnace.

3. What’s included?

Although Devon is a small town, it has many newer homes, many established neighbourhoods, and a few homes that could use a little work and updating – this goes without saying, as this is true for most towns. But how do you choose a contractor? It’s easy to get paranoid about untrustworthy contractors, and in this day and age, said paranoia is well-founded. If you are in need of a contractor to build or update your home, here are a few tips to follow when looking at Devon contractors.

Word of mouth

Choosing someone who has worked for someone you know quite well is the best way to find an honest and reliable contractor. You’ll have a few choices of Devon contractors to decide between, and while you should always check references, the word of someone

Searching the market for the neighbourhood you’re interested in is a good idea. If you already have a home in the area in mind, you can use mls.ca to view other homes in the neighbourhood and compare the price points to what each property offers. If you can find a similar style of home for sale in the same neighbourhood at the same time, this will give you an idea of whether or not the price of the home you want is on par. Similarly, your realtor will also be doing this, but they will also back-check to see how much recently sold homes went for in the area – this is another great indicator.

Word of mouth

Talk to people you know in the neighbourhood. Many times home owners overvalue their properties for sentimental reasons, or for sheer
