Prices depend on the market If you are considering selling your house, you are probably wondering if the current market conditions favour buyers or sellers. You should definitely proceed by collecting all the information you can about the real estate market. Conditions have a major influence on prices and understanding them can play a role in your strategy. The supply and demand formula is simple: when there are more homes for sale than potential buyers, prices fall. Inversely, when there are fewer houses on the market than prospective buyers, prices increase. When the number of homes for sale is approximately equivalent to the number of purchasers, then the market tends to be more balanced. PHOTO: JUPITERIMAGES / THINKSTOCK

Market conditions can vary greatly from area to area within the same region. The factors that determine the popularity of any given neighbourhood are the strength of the economy on a national and local level, rural, urban, or suburban location, access to services, and changing consumer tastes. If you find yourself in a buyer’s market, you will likely need to be flexible and reduce your asking price. Another option is to invest in some home improvements before listing your house, which will optimize your position alongside other similarly priced homes on the market.

Spring maintenance for your home Has harsh winter weather damaged your home? Has snow clearing ruined your flowerbeds? Has the wind torn off some of your roof shingles? Spring brings lots of little fix-ups that need your attention, but for most of them you don’t need to be an expert in renovations. The exterior of a home usually needs some preventive maintenance in the spring, once all risk of freezing has passed. A few simple tasks will be sufficient to improve the appearance and the value of your residence. FOUNDATIONS Check to ensure that no new cracks have appeared and that existing ones have not increased in size. Call in an expert to fill the cracks and solve the problem once and for all. WINDOWS If the paint on windows, outside cladding, or the patio has peeled, the wood is probably damp. Any rotten wood should be replaced before repainting. DRIVEWAY Examine your driveway and other paved surfaces, including those of indoor garages. Identify all the potholes and cracks in the asphalt that will have to be repaired. Stepping stones in walkways that have broken, chipped, lifted, or sunk over the winter will also need repairing. GUTTERS Once the blossoms from spring-flowering trees have fallen, clean the gutters even if you did them in the fall. Take advantage of this extra cleaning to make sure the anchors aren’t loose and that your gutters are draining efficiently. Use a garden hose to detect any leaks and ensure that water drains freely through the downspouts and away from the house.

Do you feel that painting is a tedious chore to avoid, best left for those years when you are moving into an empty apartment or house? Yet, freshening up the rooms in your home is the greatest way to do a quick and inexpensive revamp of your décor. You might feel more prepared to take on the task if you know a few tricks and tips that will keep you singing while you work. The most important thing to remember before starting a paint job is to be well organized. Cover the floor with plastic sheets, wear old clothes, and have all the necessary tools on hand. Quality brushes for precision work and rollers for large surfaces are essential right from the start. PREPARING THE SURFACE A thorough preparation of the surface to be painted is absolutely necessary. If it’s unpainted drywall, the surface must be dusted, and walls covered in latex paint must be washed. If the walls were previously painted with oil-based paints, they will have to be sanded and any dust removed. A primer should be applied to wallpaper, glass, fabric, drywall, or woodwork, which will facilitate the application of your coloured paint and provide better coverage. If necessary, use joint compound to fill any holes and cracks or to level an uneven wall. Use painter’s tape to cover any fixtures, mouldings, or other surfaces that you don’t want splattered or edged with paint.

PAINTING When it’s time to start the actual painting, begin with the corners of the walls and ceilings. In order to get an even look, use both vertical and horizontal brush strokes. Once all the corners have been covered, use a roller to spread the paint from bottom to top, taking care not to remove paint already applied to the wall. Continue in this way, overlapping the part already painted. When painting doors, start with the mouldings before progressing to the door panels. EDGES If you are doing a whole room, start with the ceiling. This way, drips will not fall and spoil new paint on the walls. When painting the edge of a ceiling, you can also paint the top of the wall in order to completely cover the junction between the two surfaces. This will help you when the time comes to paint the top of the wall. A straight, clean edge requires a lot of skill and a steady hand that can only be learned with practice. It helps to use a good quality brush with bristles cut at an angle. If you aren’t putting fresh paint on the ceiling, use painter’s tape along all ceiling edges before starting on the walls. By following these few suggestions you can be sure of one thing: the job will turn out to be a lot easier and a lot more fun than you’d expected!
