WHEN IS A BEDROOM NOT A BEDROOM? When it’s part of the kitchen! Clever owners have removed one small wall to create an airy, open kitchen from an un-used bedroom. However, now with all your kids arriving and the relatives descending en masse, that wall could quickly be replaced to create another sleeping/playing/computer spot. The entire lower floor at walk-out level provides ample space for grandparents or aunts or uncles or even third cousins. Sensibly priced at $649,000. (Space doesn’t allow us to describe the dramatically terraced gardens or the glittering view of Mt. Baker… … you really have to come see for yourself). Call the Duttons Team (LOIS, COLIN, OLE or DAVID) just as soon as you’ve put the kids to bed or fed the cousins! Duttons & Co. Real Estate Ltd. 250-383-7100 (Toll Free: 1-800-574-7491)

When your home is for sale, it’s often more than just the purchase price and location that will make or break a deal. Making your home look its very best and presenting it as a desirable place to live is also very important.

Work With Your REALTOR® Your REALTOR® can give you an objective opinion of what you need to do. REALTORS® have the experience and knowledge that can help identify problem areas or suggest improvements. In most cases, REALTORS® will not suggest major renovations. A few minor repairs here and there and a thorough cleaning are usually all that are required.

Outside and In

Cleaning Up the Homestead

To Renovate or Not to Renovate

Virtually all buyers are on the lookout for one thing — a clean home. Many will simply walk away if a home looks uncared for and, at the very least, an untidy home will fetch a lower selling price. Ensure your home is spotless and free of clutter. The two most important rooms in a buyer’s mind are the kitchen and the bathroom. Pay particular attention to these areas — they should sparkle and shine.

Usually, most renovations do not translate into an increase in selling price of more than the cost of the renovations themselves. Painting, wallpapering and modest landscape improvements usually recover their costs, but major projects such as new patios, decks or additions rarely do.

Making Repairs There are certain items that must be repaired if there are problems. A leaky roof, for example, must be fixed. Any electrical problems will have to be addressed. Furnaces, water heaters and plumbing also fall into this category. Other areas may not need major repairs but will need attention. These can include leaky faucets, holes in window screens and any broken glass, etc. If some of your walls are too dirty to come clean, you may wish to consider a paint job. Carpets and rugs should also be clean and in good repair.

Take a close look at the state of your yard. If you are showing your home in the summer, trees and shrubs should be pruned and your lawn kept neat. In the fall, rake leaves regularly and in the winter ensure the walks and driveway are kept clear of any snow or ice.

Moving Up or Down If you are selling your home because you need more space with a growing family, or if you plan on downsizing now that the kids have left home or you want less work, your REALTOR® can help. With access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) your REALTOR® can provide you with list of homes for sale that meet your needs and your budget. If you have access to the Internet you can view all of the properties listed for sale on the Board’s MLS® system by logging on to

There are both practical and emotional results of moving up to a better home. On the practical side, the equity in your home will continue to grow and the value of a bigger and better home will be ultimately greater over time. On the emotional side, the pride of ownership in a bigger house will probably be even greater than when you bought your first home.

Moving Up

You may be surprised to learn that the cost of moving up is within your means. The equity you have already built up in your current home can often be sufficient for the down payment for your next home. And, with today's attractive mortgage rates, carrying charges need not be much larger than what you are paying now. A REALTOR® can help you calculate the carrying costs on a “move up” home.

Location, of course, will be one of the first choices you will need to make. There are almost as many individual choices on location as there are homes. If you want to move closer to the urban core you can be sure that there is somebody out there who is just as eager to move to the suburbs. If you want a house on a bigger lot to enjoy gardening, there's someone looking for a smaller lot which requires less maintenance. With access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®), a REALTOR® can not only help you sell your present home for the best price possible, but also provide you with a customized list of homes for sale that meet your needs, wants and budget. He or she can then arrange for you to view the homes that appeal to you the most.

Moving Up

in the Housing Market Has the prospect of moving into a bigger and better home been in your plans from the day you first bought your “starter” home? Well, now may be just the right time to make it happen. You may be surprised to learn that the cost of moving up is within your means. The equity you have already built up in your current home can often be sufficient for the down payment for your next home. And, with today’s attractive mortgage rates, carrying charges need not be much larger than what you are paying now. A REALTOR can help you calculate the carrying costs on a “move up” home.

CHANGING NEEDS The desire to move to a larger home is often the result of changing needs for you and your family. A new child is on the way and you need a nursery; the children are growing and need their own rooms and more space to play; you’re tired of scrambling for a place to park on the street and want your own driveway; you need more space to build a home office now that you are self-employed; or maybe you just need a change of scenery. There are as many reasons as there are different lifestyles. Whatever your reasons, moving up to a new home can intensify the joys of home ownership. There are both practical and emotional results of moving up to a better home. On the practical side, the equity in your home will continue to grow and the value of a bigger and better home will be ultimately greater over time. On the emotional side, the pride of ownership in a bigger house will probably be even greater than when you bought your first home.

ASK A REALTOR FOR HELP As will every major decision, the key component is thoughtful planning. Your options can be confusing at times but a REALTOR can help you make the right choices. Location, of course, will be one of the first choices you will need to make. There are almost as many individual choices on location as there are homes. If you want to move closer to the urban core you can be sure that there is somebody out there who is just as eager to move to the suburbs. If you want a house on a bigger lot to enjoy gardening, there’s someone looking for a smaller lot which requires less maintenance. With access to the Multiple Listing Service®) (MLS® ), a REALTOR can not only help you sell your present home for the best price possible, but also provide you with a customized list of homes for sale that meet your needs, wants and budget. He or she can then arrange for you to view the homes that appeal to you the most. If you are thinking of moving up to meet changes in circumstances and lifestyle, contact a REALTOR today for expert advice.
