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, when the kids start to arrive or the relatives descend en masse, that wall could quickly be replaced to create another sleeping/playing/computer spot. This home has so much flexibility for only $649,000. The entire lower floor at walk-out level invites all those kids or grandparents or aunts or uncles or cousins. There’s already a huge family room, bathroom and office with built-ins. (Space doesn’t allow us to describe the dramatically terraced gardens or the glittering view of Mt. Baker… … you really have to come see this NEW LISTING!). Call the Duttons Team (LOIS, COLIN, OLE or DAVID) or your own agent before it’s too late. Duttons & Co.

NEIGHBOURHOOD You have decided to buy a home. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 & 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. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to mark the routes your children would take and then walk them yourself.

Your REALTOR & MLSÂŽ 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 ServiceÂŽ) (MLSÂŽ) 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.

Tucked away on a quiet cul de sac, this well built 3 BR, 2 bath home has so much to offer. Open plan Living, Dining and Kitchen area features vaulted ceiling, skylights and plenty of windows to take advantage of the great sunny exposures. Relax on the spacious deck or enjoy the very private, park like yard which has been tastefully landscaped yet still retains a great sense of nature. Many recent updates include “Low E” windows, powered awning, new roof and gutter system. RV parking with water and sewer connections.



One of the most important houses on Salt spring, with remarkable provenance and unrivaled artistry created in concert by three generations of master craftsman, two uncompromising owners and an architect coaxed into collaboration nearly thirty years after his original commission. the result is a profoundly moving house that changes the rules of what constitutes suitably rustic style. Far beyond shelter, the 2 bedroom house blurs the boundary between decades of design. The raw sensuality of stripped-back materials has a surprising power, and the almost 3,000 sq.ft. house tips a finely tuned balance of complex angles and simple materials while humbly honoring the superior designer of it stunning waterfront site.

PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR SALE 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 are also very important.

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. 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.

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.

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

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(r) (MLS(r) ), 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.

“We selected the “Neal Estate Team” as our realtors because of your unique “guaranteed sale” plan. I don’t think you can put a price on the peace of mind we felt, knowing that our home would sell, in a reasonable length of time, for a fair price, no matter what.

As you will remember, our home sold in about 3 weeks, and I think this was due to the fact that you had skillfully “read” the housing market, and accurately determined the highest price we could get for a quick sale. Ron, after all is said and done, the bottom line for us was RESULTS. We are satisfied customers and we’ve told our friends that if you want a dedicated, professional approach for a quick sale at a fair price, call Ron Neal! Thank you.” L. & S. Tyson. $2 ,78 4.2 3
