The afternoon sunshine this week made up for the fog unless you were catching an am flight! Or...doing a long morning commute. We are spending a couple of days at our Remax national conference in sunny Victoria. This is where we learn, share ideas and reconnect with our fellow Remaxers from across Canada. Our network is established and extensive - so if you are moving within the lower mainland, within B.C. or across the country, we can connect you with a professional local realtor who will help remove the stress of the long distance move. Working with a realtor who is really tuned into your new community makes every decision that much more informed.
Home maintenance - good and bad - becomes very apparent when the home is on the market. This is the time of year to focus on clearing the gutters, checking your drains, servicing your fireplaces and furnace, cleaning your chimney (if your fireplace is woodburning) ,giving the garden its Fall clean-up and, when freezing is close, draining your hosepipes and turning off the outside water taps. This is where we can also help - we have personally recommended tradespeople who can undertake any of these tasks when you are unable to. Feel free to call / email for names or any other advice we are pleased to pass along should you be thinking of marketing your home in the near, or not so near, future.
Watch out for ghosts, goblins & Trekkies on Wednesday evening - let's keep Hallowe'en safe and happy. Have fun - but beware of that sugar high!
Remember, whatever the season, when it comes to real estate we have you covered.
