Selling a home during the fall certainly comes with one advantage: The season’s beautiful foliage can automatically make your home more attractive for showings. However, you still need to do your part to keep your home looking its best.

Flaunt your fireplace.

Appeal to the senses.

A warm, inviting fireplace is a great selling point as the weather gets cooler. Highlight this fall-friendly feature by arranging your furniture to make your fireplace a focal point. Place a mirror, artwork, vases or other tasteful decor on top of the mantel to make it even more prominent.

Update your listing photos.

Start by sprucing up your lawn: Keep falling leaves at bay with frequent raking and patch up any brown spots in the grass. As the trees shed their leaves, your home becomes more and more exposed, making its exterior appearance especially important. Chipped paint or dirty siding will be extra noticeable, so pressurewash your home and repaint before showings if needed. Be sure to take care of fall-specific maintenance projects -- like cleaning your gutters and downspouts -- to show

Nothing says fall like the pleasing aromas of apples and cinnamon. Before showing your home, burn a cinnamon-scented candle or simmer a pot of apple cider on the stove with a stick of cinnamon thrown in. If you opt for cider, leave it in a thermos with cups for buyers to enjoy. Brighten up your

Think like a buyer.

Buyers have the mindset that fall sellers missed the boat and are desperate to unload their homes. After all, why didn’t you sell in the spring when buyers were out in full force? Fall house hunters are looking for bargains, so be prepared for lowball offers and non-serious buyers. Manage your expectations and negotiate accordingly, depending on your motivation. If you need to sell fast, be prepared to make counteroffers until you

While spring is the busiest season for real estate sales, fall usually sees a small surge of buyers trying to find a bargain before the holidays. If you want to grab the attention of these deal-seeking house hunters, you need to price your home competitively -- possibly lower than comparable homes in your neighborhood. Setting your listing price just right could lead to a bidding war, resulting in a higher sales price for you. Work with your listing agent to price your home correctly.

YOUR GUIDE TO AREA HOMES

THE OBSERVER | B5

Now is the best time to winterize your lawn

Watch your timing.

Put your home on the market well in advance of looking for a new home. And don’t place an offer on your next home until you have solid offers on the one you have to sell now. The last thing you want to do is juggle two mortgage payments.

Beware of TMI (too much information).

Buyers think fall sellers are in dire straits, so don’t do anything to add to that perceived advantage and lower your potential selling price. For instance, if you are moving due to a job transfer, it’s best not to offer up that information -- at the very least, downplay the urgency. If asked about your motivation to sell, simply saying you’re ready to trade up would suffice. While

you are obligated to disclose everything about the property’s condition, you aren’t obligated to disclose your personal situation.

Be flexible.

While fall isn’t the hardest time to sell a home, it’s not the easiest either, so be willing to work with buyers to help your chances of making a quick sale. Offer to pay for closing costs or repairs, and be adaptable when it comes to showing your home and holding open houses. While preparing for the holidays can make fall a busy season, if you really need to sell, you need to accommodate buyers’ busy schedules as well. This might mean opening your home to strangers on weeknights and weekends.

Preparing your lawn and garden for a Canadian winter can be a tricky business even for the most experienced gardener. Follow these three tips early this fall and watch the fruits of your labour blossom after a long, cold winter: • Top-dress your lawn with a thin layer of compost or good garden soil, and add grass seed appropriate to your lawn condition and local grow-

As the season shifts, it is important for homeowners to prepare their houses for cooler temperatures. Getting your place prepared for another great Canadian winter means having your home’s heating equipment inspected and serviced to ensure it is in optimal working condition. Investing in the proper maintenance of a home heating system is essential to ensuring that it provides reliable and efficient indoor comfort when the outdoor temperature drops.

• Fertilizing promotes vigorous growth the following spring. If chemical fertilizers are prohibited in your local community, ask your garden centre to recommend a natural alternative such as compost or another kind of fertilizer. Also, clippings left on the lawn are rich in nitrogen and provide free and easy fertilization. Make sure you spread fertilizers evenly and thinly to avoid clumps that can cause

snow mould. Although Health Canada has registered many pesticides for use in Canada, some provinces and municipalities have placed additional restrictions on pesticide use on public and private property.

apart, it could be very expensive to have it repaired. • Decks and porches – look for signs of rotting wood, even under a fresh coat of paint. Soft spots or places where the wood is splintered could be a sign of more widespread damage. • Electrical system – if you are buying an older home, find out if the electrical panel has been upgraded. If the service says 200 amps, it is an upgrade. A 60 or 100 amp panel has probably not been upgraded, and may not be enough to meet the electricity needs of your family. • Floors – what shape are the floors in? If the

floors are hardwood, do they need to be sanded and refinished? Refinishing isn’t very expensive, but it is easier if done before you move in, while the rooms are still empty. • Heating – find out how old the furnace is, and what kind of energy is used to heat the home. Natural gas is generally the least expensive option, but it is not available everywhere. Oil and electricity are common sources of energy in Canada but are more expensive, especially for a house with baseboard heaters. • Insulation – insulation keeps your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. If the house has older plaster walls, it

probably has little or no insulation. Hiring an insulation contractor to blow extra insulation behind the walls can be expensive, but it will save you money on your heating bills in the long run. • Parking – find out where you can park and how many parking spaces come with the house. Many older houses in large cities, such as Montréal and Toronto, do not have a garage or driveway. If the house does not have a driveway, can you get a parking permit from the city to park on the street? If not, do municipal regulations allow you to build a driveway or parking spot? • Plumbing – the

Canada’s Economic Action Plan offers incentives for homeownership Buying your first home is one of the largest investments of your life. Canada’s Economic Action Plan introduces the First-Time Home Buyers’ (FTHB) Tax Credit and the expansion of the Home Buyers’ Plan (HBP) to provide you with additional benefits and help you realize your dream of homeownership.

First-Time Home Buyers’ (FTHB) Tax Credit

The costs associated with purchasing a home, such as legal fees, disbursements and land transfer taxes, can be a particular burden for firsttime homebuyers who must pay these costs, as

well as save money for a down payment. To assist first-time homebuyers with the costs associated with the purchase of a home, the Government of Canada introduced a FTHB Tax Credit in 2009 — a $5,000 non-refundable income tax credit amount on a qualifying home acquired after January 27, 2009. For an eligible individual, the credit will provide up to $750 in federal tax relief starting in 2009.

Expansion of the Home Buyers’ Plan (HBP)

To provide first-time homebuyers with greater access to their RRSP savings to purchase or build a home, the Government of

Unplug inactive appliances

Cork flooring a chic and responsible choice

The right choice for your home

Cork is warm as well as inviting, and complements a variety of decorating styles and elements, including all wood furniture finishes. It’s the perfect choice no matter your current decor or taste. Whether you prefer a casual, modern or relaxed country look, cork will accentuate any style or space. Cork floors have been used for decades, traditionally been used in schools and libraries for its acoustic benefits. Redesigned for today’s consumer, cork is making its way into mainstream living rooms, bedrooms and in particular, kitchens due to its natural beauty, comfort and warmth. While you’ll love the look of cork, you’ll absolutely

adore the feel of it. Cork is 50% air, a dense cushion that insulates against cold and comforts every footstep. With a cork floor underfoot, you’ll never want to wear shoes or socks indoors again. Industry tests for wear have also shown that cork endures like hardwood. Add to this its ability to absorb sound, and cork is beautiful, smart and tough to its core.

inspiring 100% recycled cork collection features beautiful, earth-friendly, affordable floors which are easy to install without chemicals, glues or nails, and little dust. Torlys ecoengineered floors allow you to move your floor from room to room or to a second property up to three times under warranty—another earthfriendly plus. To find out more visit torlys.com.

The right choice for the environment

Which rooms suit cork floors?

Cork offers one more comfort—peace of mind for the environmentally conscious. Cork comes from bark and gently harvested from living trees. While harvests occur often, the same tree is used only once every nine years. The time-honoured tradition, which includes hand tools, never destroys the tree, making cork an entirely renewable resource.

The Canadian Connection

Torlys, a Canadian company, is a world leader in cork flooring. Their

Concrete walls illustrate the best of futuristic building techniques If you are about to build your dream home, it’s worth noting that construction options and practises have advanced significantly in the past few years. Today, building to achieve maximum energy efficiency, as well as maximum beauty and comfort, are all top priority to the homeowner. Significantly, it is Canadian technology both north and south of the border that is setting the bar so high. In wall construction for example, the Ontariobased company, Nudura, has developed an advanced version of the integrated concrete form (ICF). The Nudura system uses concrete to replace the inefficient but standard, ‘wood stick’ method currently used by builders.. “Once locked together (like Lego) this system creates a solid, monolithic concrete wall,” says marketing manager, Todd Blyth. “Energy savings are recorded up to 70 percent. Drafts are eliminated. The concrete building envelope is more sound resistant, more fire resistant, and stronger.” While this construction method is winning

awards all over North America, some builders need coaxing to break with routine. So if you insist on living in the strongest building envelope possible, clip and save the following overview of the system (nudura.com) for ease of communication with your builder: • Pre-assembled concrete building forms make wall construction easier and faster for builders, designers and engineers. • The newest design development includes a patented fastening strip to ensure no compression

during placement and to securely lock the forms into place. • The innovative, hinged web allows the forms to be shipped flat providing 40 percent more of them on a truck compared to other ICF products.. • Assembly time is eliminated and the compact form design allows one person the ability to easily carry 36 square feet of wall form from the truck to the storage area. • Forms are larger than standard (measuring 8’ x 18” for the placement of

Paint the ceiling to keep things ‘looking up’ around your house Painting the ceiling is a great way to complete a room and give it a polished look—and it can transform the look and feel of any room too. Add a splash of colour to make small spaces seem larger and cavernous rooms much cozier with a fresh, clean appearance. Better still, you can now save time. One thing that can make painting ceilings quicker and easier is a new addition to Behr’s Paint & Primer In One line called Behr Premium Plus Ultra Stain-Blocking Ceiling Paint. With its specialized formulation and viscosity, the paint dries to touch in 30 minutes and can be recoated in one hour. When dry, it forms an extra protective shell that resists moisture, stains and mildew and has a flat sheen to minimize surface imperfections and provide a uniform appearance.

Newest ‘mobile app’ matches paint colour instantly

12 square feet of wall area in one building step). This results in faster installation times, less waste and reduced seams. • A patented foam interlock allows the form to be 4-way reversible, almost eliminating waste. This automatically doubles the form useage whenever half height form may be required. It virtually eliminates waste when constructing gable end walls since both halves of the cut form can be used.

Now when decorating, you can act upon whatever inspires you in the moment. A major paint company is giving us an easyto-use, digital application to record, identify, and match any favourite color, on the go. It might be the blue sky in a park, a vivid red sweater, or an amazing shade of lavender fabric in a flowing curtain. If you want that color exactly, it can be yours. This newest app will match it immediately to just the right paint color. Called ColorSmart by Behr Mobile Application, homeowners can download the touch-and-tap tool, free of charge from the Android Market and Apple iTunes App Store. For more information on the application and how to use it, visit behr.com/ colorsmartmobile. Here’s how: • Explore Color—Browse the range of more than over 2,000 color possibilities. Once a color is selected, you can further coordinate or preview it in a room image. • Photo Match—Take a photo, or use an existing photo from your personal collection. Tap on an area in the photo and the application will pull up the three closest matching paint colors. • Preview—Test your color choice by virtually “painting” the walls, trims and accents on room images. Zoom in to see details or remove a color and add another until perfect. You can also use the ‘favourites’ feature to save your favourite color combinations.

YOUR GUIDE TO AREA HOMES

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2011

You can sell your home without all the drama Making simple repairs - like replacing outdated windows -may allow you to ask for more money for your home. Selling a home can put you on an emotional rollercoaster. At the top, you feel excited and proud that your place looks the best it ever has and relieved when it finally sells. At the bottom, though, you might be disappointed at the offers that come in or even desperate when you don’t get any offers at all. What if the buyer’s deal falls through? Now, that’s a potential freak-out moment! Real estate guru and FrontDoor Insider Tara-Nicholle Nelson offers these 10 simple steps and strategies to get you off the emotional thrill ride of selling your home.

Know your power.

Understand what you can do to get your home sold, fast and at top dollar. So much of the drama of selling a home is the sense of helplessness. It can feel like you’re at the whim of the market, prospective buyers and even your local force of Realtors! Not so – in fact, you have a huge amount of power to control the outcome of your home selling experience. You actually make the decisions that have the most impact on whether your home sells, how fast it sells and what price you get for it.

It’s all about the money

If your home has lots of little handyman projects that need to be fixed – a hinky bathroom exhaust fan that sounds like a lawnmower; scuff-marked walls; or grungy, old-school cabinet hardware – get them done! Homes that are almost “there” are the easiest ones to get some big upside out of a good sprucing up. But do interface with your Realtor on this, and coordinate your spruce up with her staging strategy.

You and only you get to set the price, and the price is the single most important determinant of how fast and for how much your home sells. Now, look – you know good and darn well from your own shopping experience – both real estate and retail – that a bargain-priced product catches your eye much more quickly than a regular priced product. Everyone wants a deal, so if you want your home to sell quickly, either price it lower than the similar houses on the market or make sure it is tricked out in features that buyers care about to warrant a premium price. The more buyers you lure into your house, statisticallyspeaking, the higher the price you’ll get for it. If you price your home low, you’ll get more buyers in it and maybe even get multiple offers. Yep, it happens – even in this market, but it usually happens to great homes listed at low prices.

To market, to market

Conditional love.

You get to choose what you are putting on the market: a contractor’s special, a cosmetic fixer or a Pottery Barn-chic casa in move-in condition. If your home is in really bad shape, it’s probably not cost- or time-effective to fix it for sale. But if it has one major issue that you can afford to fix, like

replacing the roof or trading out the rotten windows with dual-paned, it might just be worth the effort.

Talk to your Realtor first about how the repair might get you more money or help you get the place sold at all!

You control how your home is marketed, because you pick your listing agent! Be smart and pick one with a strong marketing plan that has demonstrated success attracting buyers in your area. And don’t ever mentally check out of the marketing process. Until your home is sold, go online periodically and have a look-see at how your home is being presented to websurfing house hunters. If you don’t like what you see, take it up with your Realtor. They aim to please and will usually work with you to tweak your home’s marketing pieces till they reflect your home in as good a light as possible without using pics of someone else’s house! See, you have a lot more power over the sale of your home than you thought. Wield it wisely!
