Careful condo buyers want to know what they should be looking for and investingating before they buy. Imagine how helpful it would be to know what an expert would be looking for if he were making a condo offer today? Sure to save buyers time, money and sleepless nights, this seminar Saturday morning, May 4 at U-Vic will give you peace of mind and lots of fabulous tips on what to be looking out for. If there are hidden surprises, when do you want to find out about them: now when they belong to a seller or later when you own them? Will the strata fees go up? Will there be a Special Assessment? What will the next big expense be? How to figure out what your portion of that expense will be? Can they take your parking spot away? When is your balcony not your balcony? And much more... Former building inspector, builder, developer and professional real estate consultant with Pemberton Holmes Ltd., Rick Couvelier, is the speaker. Seating is limited for this popular course. For those without a Realtor, call 477-0921 for details and to reserve a seat or register online @

You have decided to buy a home. You've analyzed your budget, talked to a REALTOR® and figured out what kind of house you want. But, the most important step may have been left until last: picking the right neighbourhood. Choosing not only the proper community, but also the right neighbourhood, can have a tremendous impact on your family's happiness and the value of your investment. The first thing many people do when considering a move is drive around various communities gaining a sense of which areas they like. Buyers find out how close the major highways are and if the neighbours keep their yards tidy. Most will make sure they know the location of the closest mall. But what about public transit, colleges, schools, libraries, parks, recreation centres and fire or ambulance stations? Is the local police station close to your prospective neighbourhood? All of these factors can make or break a decision to buy a certain property. Your REALTOR® can provide you with a wealth of general information on different neighbourhoods. For detailed information, it's a good idea to contact the appropriate agency directly.

Incredible Neighbourhood!

CREATING CURB APPEAL CAN HELP SELL YOUR HOME What’s curb appeal? It’s that certain something about your home that catches the eye of the passer-by and makes them want to take a closer look. If you’re selling your home, curb appeal can quickly draw prospective buyers in for the first time. Without it, buyers may pass up on the chance to see inside and will miss what might have been the perfect home for them. Your REALTOR can give you numerous tips and suggestions to help you make that first impression really count. Here are a few ideas. Keep your lawns neatly trimmed and edged. Trim trees and shrubbery to get rid of overhanging branches that might obscure a potentially good view of your home, or pathway leading to the front door. Turn over the soil in your flowerbeds. If there’s little color in your front garden, make a splash with a display of inexpensive annuals, flower boxes and wooden tubs. Clay and plastic posts can also be filled with flowers and small shrubs and displayed in the yard or by the front entrance to give the feel of a warm welcome. Birdhouses and feeders, dried flower wreaths and hanging baskets on the front porch can give your home countryside curb appeal. Keep your porch, driveway and front yard clutter free. Remove garbage bins as soon as possible after pick-up, and avoid any build-up of junk mail.

Repair or replace broken steps or walkways. You might be used to the uneven paving or rickety stairs outside your home, but they could be hazardous to visitors, as well as unsightly. Your home’s roof, chimney and exterior should look sound and well-cared for. Freshly painted woodwork is often well worth the time and money invested in it. A good spruce-up can make a big difference If painting is unnecessary, your home will still benefit from a good spruce-up. Wash down window frames and clean your windows to make them sparkle. Scrub the front door and polish the house numbers, letterbox, doorknob and knocker. Open blinds, curtains or shutters to give your home an inviting, welcoming look. These are just a sample of some of the ways you can create curb appeal. Your REALTOR can give you many other, customized tips to make the most of your home’s unique charm. In addition, your REALTOR can offer an objective view of any repairs and improvements that might be necessary to enhance the likelihood of selling your home. Creating curb appeal may just be the feature that sets your home apart from the rest.
