The Parksville Qualicum Beach News Thursday, February 4, 2016

www.pqbnews.com

Sell your current home Not very many people can hold onto two homes at the same time, so you’ll probably need to sell the one you have now. When should you sell? Buyer’s and seller’s markets explained When there are lots of people looking for homes but not many for sale, it’s called a ‘seller’s market’. When there are lots of homes for sale and not many people buying them, it’s called a ‘buyer’s market’. Wait for the market to improve? If you’re selling one home and buying another, you don’t really have to worry about playing the market. If you sell your existing home for a ‘low’ price, you’re probably also buying at a low price. Seasonality. Do home sales get frostbite? It’s true. Winter sales tend to be slower, and spring sales are more brisk. If you need to sell fast Ask a REALTOR® for help establishing a price and for making your home look attractive, without making you look desperate. Buy first or sell first? The eternal question. Many people are able to time their sale and purchase so they happen on the same “closing date”. As a buyer, you can make your offer “conditional” on the sale of your existing home, so you’re not paying for the upkeep of two homes. Or when selling, you can try to extend the “closing period” to give yourself more time to find your next home.

Sell with a REALTOR®, or go it alone? In the same way that many people decide not to fix their own cars or do their own dental work, it’s wise to enlist a professional when selling your most valuable asset. Real estate transactions are complex, time consuming and involve a lot of legal documentation. Your REALTOR® is knowledgeable and highly motivated to help you get the most for your home. Before flying solo, truly know what a REALTOR® can offer.

How to improve your home’s curb appeal Men and women who have tried to sell a home are likely familiar with the phrase “curb appeal.” Curb appeal is similar to getting ready for a big date, only you’re not dressing yourself up to make a strong first impression. Instead, improving curb appeal involves dressing your home up in the hopes it makes a strong first impression on prospective buyers, many of whom will have a strong opinion about the property before they even get out of their cars to have a look around. A home with strong curb appeal can entice buyers who are likely to believe that a home with a well-maintained exterior is likely to have an equally impressive interior. Homeowners who want the process of selling their home to go smoothly can improve the property’s curb appeal in a number of ways, many of which don’t necessitate a substantial home improvement budget. * Clean up. The most effective way to improve curb appeal is to clean up the property. Many homeowners are savvy enough to remove toys and other items from the yard before showing a home, but cleaning up goes beyond removing clutter from the property. Make sure all hedges are trimmed and remove weeds, sticks and other debris from any flower beds. Lay mulch in the flower beds and garden, as mulch prevents weed growth while helping the soil retain moisture, resulting in more attractive gardens to catch a buyer’s eye. * Get an “edge” on other sellers. Edg-

Tracy E L L I OT T

ing is another easy and effective way to improve curb appeal. Edge driveways, sidewalks and other walkways around the property, removing or trimming anything that is hanging over the driveway or walkways. If the boundary between your driveway and lawn is not distinct, consider installing edging materials such as stone or bricks. The edging can be level with the driveway or elevated, but keep in mind that elevated driveway edging can protect the lawn, preventing kids from riding their bicycles onto the lawn or cars from driving onto it. Adding edging is not a very difficult do-it-yourself project.

* Take to the trees. Many homeowners grow accustomed to overgrown trees around their property and may not notice that low-hanging, unsightly branches are hiding the home from view. Buyers want to see the house, so take to the trees and trim any branches that hang too low or obscure your home. * Clean the gutters. Leaves and sticks hanging from the gutters are a red flag to buyers, who tend to associate clogged gutters with roof damage. Clean the gutters thoroughly before putting your home up for sale and keep them clean throughout the selling process. If your property includes lots of trees, install guards to

keep twigs and leaves out of the gutters. * Make the home accessible through the front door. Many homeowners enter their home through a side door or through their garage. If you fall into this category, keep in mind that prospective buyers will be entering through the front door, so make this area accessible. Clear any clutter, such as overgrown hedges, away from the front door, and consider upgrading the door handle to a more modern feature. In addition, make sure the lock on the front door doesn’t stick, forcing the realtor and buyers to immediately struggle before entering the home. You want buyers and their real estate agents to get in and out of the home as smoothly as possible. * Make sure all plants, including flowers, are living. Dehydrated or dead plants and flowers are eyesores, and they will give buyers the impression that you didn’t pay much attention to your property. Make sure all plants are alive and thriving and replace those that aren’t. You can replant new flowers or plants or just use potted plants instead. When purchasing new plants, choose low-maintenance varieties that appeal to buyers who want good vibrant plants but might not want to put in much work into the garden.

1. How long have you been a REALTOR®? A new REALTOR® can do a wonderful job and will have up- to-date training. Those in the business longer bring practical experience to the table. 2. What is your average list-to-sales ratio? A good REALTOR® should hold a track record for how many properties they have listed compared to how many they have sold within a given time period. In a good market, there would be about six sales for every 10 listings. In a poor market, there would be about four sales for every 10 listings. 3. How will your marketing plan meet my needs? Specifically, how will you sell my home? Where and how often will you advertise? Do you have sample flyer, advertisements, and web copy? 4. Will you provide references? Ask if

you can talk to past clients. Then follow up and talk to them. 5. What separates you from your competition? Key phrases to listen for: assertive, available by phone or e-mail, analytical, able to maintain a good sense of humour under trying circumstances. 6. May I review documents that I will be asked to sign? A good REALTOR® makes forms available to you before you are required to sign them. Ask to see agency disclosure, listing agreement, seller disclosure forms. 7. How will you help me find other professionals? Ask for a written list of referring vendors. Get an explanation if you see the term “affiliated.” It could mean the REALTOR® is getting compensation from vendors. 8. How much do you charge? You don’t have to ask if the fee is negotiable, since all real estate fees are negotiated. 9. What kind of guarantee do you offer? If you sign a listing agreement with the REALTOR® and later find that you are unhappy with the arrangement, will the REALTOR® let you cancel the agreement? 10. What haven’t I asked you that I need to know? Pay close attention to how the REALTOR® answers this question, because there is always something you need to know.

McMillan Villas Downsizing With Luxury B

oomers have watched their houses empty of children and they are looking for a lock and leave lifestyle, perhaps an Age-Friendly living space they can enjoy in beautiful Parksville and still spend some months down south during the winter. McMillan Villas offer that opportunity. "Their kids have left the house and they are ready to downsize," says Jim Hilsenteger, President of the company building these stunning Villas in Parksville, a stone’s throw from one of the continent’s most famous beaches. The Villas have employed an aging-in-place design. It’s been called “downsizing with luxury” for good reason.

SPACIOUS INTERIORS McMillan Villas offers a luxury lifestyle with more than 2,000 square feet of indoor living space, two large decks (one facing east and another facing west), plus a roof-top garden to enjoy the ocean views. In addition, the large, open great room is well suited for family dinners, yet provides a spacious place to relax when there is no company.

LUXURIOUS FINISHING The interior finishes of the Villas are of exceptional quality. For example, 10-foot-high ceilings, solid wood door cabinets, quartz countertops, glass tile backsplashes, engineered hardwood floors, wool carpets and solid wood doors are just some of the Villa features. No details have been overlooked when it comes to the McMillan Villas design goal of both aging in place and downsizing with luxury.

To obtain a complete list of the Villa specifications and Sales information, please visit the McMillan Villa website or call Jim Hilsenteger (Developer) at 403-614-8427 or Jill Tuggle (Royal LePage Parksville-Qualicum Beach Realty) at 250-927-8688.
