What To Do About Mold in your Nanaimo home Whether you looking to sell a house or buy a house in Nanaimo, one of the things that you’ll want to keep an eye out for is mold. This may sound clichéd, but one of the easiest ways to deal with mold is to prevent it before it even starts or begins to spread too far.   Here are a couple of things that can cause mold inside your home and what you can do to keep the mold from getting out of hand. 1.  Poorly ventilated bathrooms.  Older homes especially may not have an exhaust fan or a window to open in the bathroom.  If you have a bathroom like this and you’re not careful to keep in ventilated, you’ll find mold start to grow in the tub and shower enclosure and in the ceiling corners. 2.  Plumbing leaks.  Over a period of time the shut-off valves ...

  How should you price your house to sell? Have you been wondering how to price your house so it will sell quickly?  Perhaps you have found your dream house but need to sell your house before you can buy it.  The factor to consider before deciding on how you should price your house is "what is the perceived value of the home".  Buyers and sellers determine value together.  In other words value is determined by what a buyer is willing to pay as well as by what a seller is prepared to sell it for. Before you price your house remember that consumers today are highly educated. They have access to a lot of information which they access from the internet and from their Realtor.  Buyer's agents and listing agents both put together comparative market evaluations (CMA's) on homes in the area whe...
