YOUR GUIDE TO AREA HOMES

Tips for new home buyers Buying a home is the single biggest purchase most of us will ever make and, as with most important purchases, it is vital to do your homework to ensure your new home fits your lifestyle and meets your expectations. An important part of this preparation process is to learn more about all the benefits and resources available through Tarion Warranty Corporation, a private company established in 1976 to provide protection for all consumers who purchase a new home or condominium in Ontario. Tarion does this by licensing and regulating Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home builders and managing a guarantee fund to ensure that consumers receive the new home warranty coverage they are entitled to. Tarion has provided the following tips to help guide new home buyers through the purchasing process. Choose the type of home that meets your lifestyle Read the real estate section of your local paper for information about new developments. Also,

check out buildersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; websites for photos and floor plans. Determine what you can afford Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve chosen the location and type of home that fits your needs, meet with a financial representative to determine a mortgage amount that you can comfortably afford. This ensures that you spend your time wisely on homes within your price range. You should also consider getting a preâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;approved mortgage, which will allow you to shop with added confidence.

Talk with a real estate lawyer Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that you meet with a real estate or condominium lawyer before signing an Agreement of Purchase and Sale to make sure you understand exactly what is and is not included in the price of your new home.

Research your builder A simple call to 1â&#x20AC;&#x201C;877â&#x20AC;&#x201C;9TARION or a visit to www.tarion.com will give you access to information about all registered home builders in Ontario, including their customer service record with Tarion. When you find a builder you like, talk to them about previous developments, and go straight to the source by asking current homeowners questions about their homes and neighbourhoods.

Read our Homeowner Information Package Take the time to review Tarionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Homeowner Information Package, which your builder will give to you before or during the preâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;delivery inspection for your new home. This

brochure, which is also available at www.tarion. com, explains your new homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statutory warranty, and the responsibilities of both you and your builder. Prepare for your Preâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Delivery Inspection (PDI) Be prepared for the preâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; delivery inspection. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your chance to do a thorough inspection of your new home to identify any items that are incomplete, damaged, missing or not operating properly, and have them taken care of before you move in. This is also a prime opportunity

to ensure that everything has been built according to your Agreement of Purchase and Sale.

register for MyHome, a webâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based service that will allow you to manage your warranty online.

Become familiar with the new home statutory warranty and submit forms on time You can familiarize yourself with the statutory warranty by visiting www. tarion.com. Here, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find out more about what is and what isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t covered by the warranty as well as the timelines and procedures to follow should a warrantyâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;related item need attention in your new home. You can also

Maintain your home through the seasons Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made a big investment in your home, so you should take care of it yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;round. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to remember that ongoing maintenance helps to ensure that your statutory warranty is protected. So, after youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve moved in, follow an annual maintenance routine and help keep your new home in top shape. www.newscanada.com

YOUR GUIDE TO AREA HOMES

In a kitchen reno, choosing the perfect cabinets is key The kitchen is considered the heart of a home, where family and friends gather and chat about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new in their lives. It is also the busiest room in the house as most families prepare and eat at least two meals there. A kitchen remodel is still the best interior investment you can make in your house. If you have decided a kitchen reno is in order, consider first the ulitmate goal of your project. Do you want a kitchen tailored to your personal tastes? Do you want to have an ultra modern kitchen, or would you prefer a quaint country style kitchen? Remember that potential buyers look first at the kitchen when they walk into a property listed for sale. As a result, the kitchen is considered to be a significant marketing tool. A kitchen with good work flow, enduring style and attention to detail will add value to your home. According to the Appraisal Institute of Canada, the average amount that you should spend prior to selling your house should be 10-15% of the house value. If you are planning on renovating the kitchen for personal use and not only for the purpose of investment, and if you are going to live in your house for more than five years, then you should spend 15 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 25% or more. In most cases, you will be able to recover the cost of the renovation by the time you sell your house â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with a 44% higher return on investment than the average return on other popular renovations! With this in mind, shopping for cabinets is a vital part of your kitchen renovation project. You will more than likely have a strong reaction once you see the â&#x20AC;&#x153;perfectâ&#x20AC;? kitchen cabinets while researching design ideas. After all, kitchen cabinets are meant to draw your eye.

No matter the space available, kitchen cabinets cover a significant square footage of your kitchen. They are such a prominent feature, a kitchenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire personality can depend on the colour and style of the cabinets. The most important part of buying kitchen cabinets is to measure properly, especially if you plan on installing the cabinets yourself. Measure the length and width of cabinet doors, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to measure the cabinet depth. Measure your ceiling height. Newer houses tend to have higher ceilings; it may be architecturally impossible to support having tall 42 inch cabinets installed in your old kitchen. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry, a solution can be had for all cabinet spaces- as long as you remember to measure properly. Why the emphasis on measTraditional, modern or quaint country, there are plenty of design options when renovating the kitchen. The choice of cabinetry is key to the design. Smooth lines and a contemporary finish will give the modern kitchen the calm, minimalist space it needs, while shaker style cabinets and a clever use of available space will lend the country kitchen a warm, inviting feel.

urements? Consider the consequences of inaccurate measuring: off centre cabinets, improperly installed cabinet doors

that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t open properly, unintended shortfalls of space, or overruns of space, and a waste of your time and money.

However, if you are careful, purchasing kitchen cabinets can be a smart budget move, and save hundreds of dollars

on your renovation project. You can purchase budget-friendly premade or stock kitchen cabinets by visiting spe-

cialty stores that offer great deals on all types of cabinetry. Walk into the store with a firm idea of what you want and how much you want to spend. Popular woods are maple, oak, cherry and birch, or painted or lacquered finishes, and styles include classic, traditional, modern, and heritage. Remember, the first rules of kitchen design for a renovation are: spaciousness, functionality, and effective storage. In the end, you will want a kitchen that works well and looks great.

YOUR GUIDE TO AREA HOMES

Carpet buying tips that work for you packed carpet is the best for wear. Because the carpet loops are not cut in a low densely packed carpet it will wear longer than a cut pile carpet will. The taller the pile the more sound absorbing capabilities the carpet will have. Remember that high pile carpet is not good for high traffic areas. These fibers will be trampled and will be harder to clean.

With all the new types of carpet on the market when it comes to buying carpet it can be a bit of an overwhelming task. Be sure to check out the performance characteristics to make sure the type you are looking at will stand up to your expectations. The wrong choice will not last as long and you will be disappointed. Follow these 10 tips to buying carpet that works for you.

You get what you pay for

Twist Look at the twist in the individual yarn pieces. Several twists may give you good carpet. The number of twists will affect the performance and the density of the pile. Do not confuse density with the height of the pile. Pile height has nothing to do with performance. Generally the more twists in the individual yarns the more spring in the carpet. Remember the more spring the more footprints that will be hidden. However if you are looking for vibrant carpets you will have to trade off the spring because the more vibrant carpets do not have that crimped texture.

Stain protection You should look for stain protection, soil protection and static guard. Most home owners only clean their carpet once a year so you will want a carpet to perform well over a three year period. Carpets should be cleaned at least twice a

at the various under pads available for the carpet. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t skimp on the under pad. Just because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not visible doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not important. A cheap thin under pad will not do your new carpet any good and will shorten the life of your carpet. An under pad that is too thin will only fall apart under your carpet and damage the carpet over it.

year but if you have heavy traffic areas you may have to clean them as often as 3 or 4 times a year. The carpet industry has introduced some amazing carpets with stain protection, soil and static protection and these new products are better than ever before.

Buy from a reputable dealer

Professional installation

Always buy your carpet from a reputable dealer. Look for a quality and customer service oriented dealer with a special carpet section. Make sure the dealer stands behind the products he sells.

You should have your new carpet installed by a professional installer. The dealer will either have their own installation crew or they will be able to direct you to someone they recommend.

Look, thenlook some more

room and lighting conditions will affect the look of the carpet. If the carpeting is smooth or even surfaced it will have a velvety look or plush look like you would want in a formal dinning room. Use an oriental or a tapestry weave style to give a formal look to any room. To help a room look lighter or brighter a more lustrous carpet fiber should be chosen. Remember a smooth luxurious carpet will show footprints and vacuum marks. If you like this look than ask for a luster fiber but if you do not like the look be sure to tell the sales rep that you do not

Guarantee or warranty Find out what the guarantee is on the carpet and what the guarantee covers. Does it just replace the carpet or does it also cover installation. What will void the warranty and what is not covered. Know before you buy. These 10 tips will have you choosing the right carpet for your room in no time.

Kathryn Hudson

Choosing the right carpet

Look at all the different types of carpets that are available to you. Also look

want lustrous carpet pile. You can get carpeting in an uneven surface where the looped pile is a bit uneven so it looks to be tailored. By combining different piles at different heights you will get a sculptured look. This look can also be duplicated by the color or the carpet being varied colors. You will find that some carpets get this look by carving on the surface of the carpet pile. On the sculpted carpet the incoming light strikes the uneven surfaces of the pile at different angles. This type of carpet shows no footprints. The low densely

Remember, like all things in life you will get what you pay for. A low quality carpet is a low quality carpet. Be aware and select the carpet you need and like. Just because it looks like a good deal at the time, you might not think that when you have to change the carpet in 3 years instead of 10 or 20 years. So shop carefully!

Mini homes a new housing trend

Buyers are seeking smaller homes that are more cost and eco-conscious

This house plan from Peny Pincher Barns shows just how livable a ‘mini’ house can be. www.pennypincherbarns.com

Mark Primeau Broker of Record

Rising costs of energy, the recent mortgage crisis, and the troubled economy have all contributed to the tiny house trend.

Urban apartment dwellers may not be the only people residing in small spaces. The new trend in American home living is housing downsizing, when individuals decide to live in significantly closer quarters -- some as little as a walk-in closet. Move over McMansions, microhomes are the latest craze for cost- and eco-conscious individuals looking to capitalize on the American dream of home ownership. On the heels of homes doubling to over twice the size of traditional European homes in the last half cen-

tury, the scale is tipping in the other direction. The national average house size dropped for the first time in nearly 15 years, about the equivalent of one room. As the national family size average continues to shrink as well, many people are finding they simply do not need as much house as in the past. Others are taking smaller homes to the extreme, preferring micro-houses that offer living space in as little as 65 square feet with customizable kitchen, sleeping and living areas.

There are some advantages to living in a small abode, most notably cost. According to Jay Shafer, owner of the Tumbleeweed Tiny House Company, people can build a tiny home for as little as $20,000. That’s a far cry from the average home price of $250,000. What’s more, small homes are more environmentally sound. They require much less building materials and energy to heat and cool the space. Those interested in going green may find that micro-houses are the ideal way to do so.

Getting back your bucks:

Home improvements that yield good returns Each year, homeowners spend billions of dollars improving their homes. While those improvements are intended to improve the home for all its residents, such improvements are also intended to increase a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value.

Projects that contribute the most to a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resale value are the most attractive. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cost vs. Value Reportâ&#x20AC;? from Remodeling magazine examines the relationship between remodeling costs and resale value. The following

projects were some of the best for homeowners looking to improve their home and the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resale value at the same time. s %NTRY DOOR REPLACEMENT STEEL  Removing an existing entry door and replacing with a new 20-gauge steel door proved to be a homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best friend, recouping 128.9 percent of its cost at resale. Among midrange projects, this one recouped the most money by a landslide. s!TTICBEDROOMConverting an unfinished attic space to a 15-by-15foot bedroom and a 5-by7-foot bathroom with a shower also proved worthwhile to homeowners. Such a project recouped 83.1 percent of its $49,000 price tag at resale. s -INOR KITCHEN REMODEL For homeowners looking for smallerscale projects, a minor kitchen remodel, which includes installing new raised-panel wood doors on cabinets and drawers as well as replacing older appliances with more energy-efficient models, boasts a smaller price tag and a solid return. The project, which costs roughly $21,000, recouped 78.3 percent of

that cost at resale. s "ACKUP POWER GENERATOR Perhaps in light of the headline-gripping natural disasters and storms of the last decade, adding a backup power generator also proved a worthwhile investment. The project involves adding a backup system with the capacity to provide 70 amps of emergency power. That project recouped nearly 59 percent of its initial cost at resale, making it one of the few projects that saw its cost recouped figure increase from 2008-09. s 3IDING REPLACEMENT FIBER CEMENT  Among projects categorized as upscale, no project

4504 ROWSOME RD. E. HWY. #29, JUST NORTH OF BROCKVILLE

fared better than siding replacement (fiber-cement) when comparing recouped values. Replacing existing siding with fiber-cement siding thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s factory primed and factory painted recouped almost 84 percent of its initial cost at resale. s 7INDOW REPLACEMENT VINYL  Replacing 10 existing 3-by-5-foot double-hung windows with insulated, low-E, simulated-divided-lite vinyl windows is also

a good bet for homeowners looking to improve their home and its resale value. Also considered an upscale project in spite of its relatively low price tag (roughly $14,000), this project recouped an average of 79 percent of its initial cost at resale.

Where to Turn When Your Home Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Sell Brockville Area - If your home has just come off the market and hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sold, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be discouraged. The reason your home did not sell may have nothing to do with your home or the market. In reality, your home may have been one of the more desirable properties for sale. So Why Didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Your Home Sell? Last year many of the homes listed for sale never sold at all, and many sellers found that there was a tremendous amount a homeowner needed to be educated on to sell their home for top dollar in the shortest time period. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t risk making the wrong choices and losing both time and money on your investment. Before you hire a realtor, know the right questions to ask to save you time and money. Industry experts have prepared a free special report called â&#x20AC;&#x153;How to Sell a House that Didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Sellâ&#x20AC;? which educates you on the issues involved. To order a FREE Special Report, visit brockvillefreehomeinfo.com or to hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report, call toll-free 1-800-217-1897 and enter 1012.

If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay your mortgage

Dave Wilson Broker of Record

globalrelocations@sympatico.ca www.davewilsonhomelife.com

When times get tough, paying your mortgage can present a real challenge. If you run into financial problems, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to remember that your lender will want to work with you to avoid having to foreclose on your home. Many homeowners want to hide under a rock when they get into trouble to avoid calls from their creditors. Lenders advise you to do just the opposite. If your difficulties are short term, there is probably corrective action that will allow you to restructure your loan or make partial payments until you are back on your feet. If things are more serious, they may be willing to work with you and your Realtor to get the property sold quickly. If the lender has to come after you, it costs them money. To force the sale of a home with a delinquent loan means court costs and legal fees. Once that process begins, any equity you may have in your property begins to dissolve. By facing your problems squarely, you can minimize any negative consequences.

If you are thinking of relocation in the near future or simply want an update on current market conditions, please give me a call. I welcome the opportunity of giving you information and hope to be of service to you in the future.

Whether buying or selling, give me a call. I will work hard for you!
