Your Home Your Real Estate Planning To Sell Your Home?

Part 2 - Prepare Your Finances Still have a way to go paying off your mortgage? Here are some things to consider. “Discharge” your mortgage Many people use the proceeds from the sale of their home to “discharge” or pay off their mortgage. If you have an “open” mortgage, you can pay it all off without any penalties. With a “closed” mortgage, be prepared to pay a penalty. The penalty amount depends on several factors, including how much time is left on the mortgage term.

Is your mortgage “portable”? A “portable” mortgage means you can take your mortgage money with you and buy a new home without penalty – a real bonus if you mortgaged at low interest! If your new home is more expensive, you'll have to borrow the additional money at the current market rate.

Can the buyer “assume” your mortgage? Your mortgage may have a feature that allows the new buyer to take it over. If the interest rate is lower than existing rates, this can be a very enticing selling feature for your home.

Become a mortgage lender yourself? If your buyer is having trouble arranging all the money to buy your property, you may consider lending directly to them. Called a “Vendor Take Back” mortgage, it’s can used by sellers to help move property in a slower market. This is an incredibly complicated financial dealing, and you must talk with your REALTOR®, financial advisor and lawyer before choosing this route.

If you find your new dream home before you've started to sell your old one Talk to your mortgage lender about “Bridge Financing.” This is when your lender (the bank) is confident your existing home will sell quickly, and agrees to lend you the down payment for the new home.

Capital gains tax If the home was your primary residence, you will not have to pay taxes on any capital gain (the increase in the value of your home). If you had tenants living in part of your home, such as the basement, you will pay capital gains tax on a portion of your profits. You may also owe capital gains tax if you're selling a vacation or investment property. Talk with an accountant to find out what you'll have to pay.

Real Estate Victoria

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. Here are a few suggestions to consider:

Contact the municipality Municipalities have a wealth of information on hand. Some distribute brochures and booklets containing the locations of colleges, libraries, ambulance stations, hospitals, parks and transit stops. It's also a good idea to check the location of recreation centres, swimming pools, ice rinks and the like, along with the programs they offer.

Call the local police and fire departments Ask them how many stations service the community and their locations. Also ask about response time to emergencies.

Contact local School Boards The Greater Victoria, Saanich, Sooke and Gulf Islands School Districts will be able to give you information on the locations of elementary and secondary schools within their jurisdictions. It's a good idea to mark the routes your children would take and then walk them yourself. Your REALTOR® and MLS® Your REALTOR® will be able to offer you general advice and information on many of the above topics. Remember, your REALTOR® has access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) and can provide you with a customized list of properties available for sale in the neighbourhood of your choice that meet your needs, wants and budget. This article is provided by the Victoria Real Estate Board.

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.

ATTREE AVENUE COMMERCIAL $1,490,000 One Building - 1900 square feet +/= Built in 2006. Two Lots 22,000 square feet +/=. Zoning allows for many uses including drive thru’s. Central location next to banks and the main commercial area. Room for expansion and development, very under utilized.

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.

Creating Curb Appeal

Jason Kahl Kahl Realty 250-391-8484 MILL SPRINGS CUSTOM $539,888 *Beautiful Wheelchair accessible level entry rancher with 2150 square feet on main *Downstairs has suite or 1000 sq ft of games and rec rooms *.34 acre *Gas fireplace *Hardwood floors *formal living and dining room *Sprinkler system *RV parking *Fenced yard *Huge deck *Built 1996 *NO STRATA FEES like most other home sin subdivision *4 bedrooms *4 baths. PRICED TO SELL VENDOR MOTIVATED!!!!!!!! MLS 308285


Picking the Right Neighbourhood

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.
