Buying new or resale - Is it a coin toss? Not usually.  I find today's buyers have specific needs and wants and tend to lean one way or the other. Buyers looking at new or newer homes desire the bells and whistles that these homes provide. Hardwood and ceramic flooring, 3 or 4 bathrooms, great ro...

          Red means Stop, Danger, Go no further. Red flags when you are selling your house are negative signals that your home is sending out to potential buyers. As a Stager it is my job to recognize these red flags and point them out to the seller. You see, we all learn to live with small thin...

The heat wave continues in Oakville, Ontario.  I don't mind hot summer days.  Summer is fleeting.  It's the humidity that is a killer.  It is just too sticky and uncomfortable to sit outside or go for a walk during the day. The central air has been running 24/7 for the past 3 days.  Even that isn...

       The colour of the carpeting is not the memory you want your buyer to take with them. Once a house is on the market it quickly gets labeled. The house with the pink carpet.      The house that smells of animals.                                                    The house with the doll coll...

Often we find it too hard to try a...

As a Home Stager I have met sellers who are selling but don't really want to give up their home.   Seller #1 has had the bottom drop out financially. They c...

Historic homes and buildings hold many stories and secrets from the past.  It's important that we embrace history and capture it to share with  future generations.  As time marches on, and land to build on becomes scarce in many areas, it is important to preserve our community's historic sites.  ...
