Real Estate Formula

Some people think that you just take a few pictures and put a property on mls and slap a price and a sign on the lawn. That might have worked in the 80's and 90's, but things are a little different now. Here is the formula to giving your home the best opportunity to get the most money even in a crazy sellers market. 

1. Staging: Whether you hire a professional stager, or use your own furniture, staging is a big compliment to any house. Painting is included here. 

2. Clean: Make sure the house has no clutter, and is clean. If your house smells like crap it doesn't matter you will be losing money. 

3. Is it available to show: If your house is great but you can't show it for one reason or another, those agents and buyers will walk away. 

4. Marketing: This has dramatically changed in the last ten years. 360 video, high def pictures, and how you present your house is a key component of selling your house. Especially online these days. This is the first impre; ...

What Do Vaccines Mean for the Real Estate Market?

It is hard to imagine that in a pandemic, the Real Estate numbers have shot through the roof in the past 9 months. Nobody could have predicted that there would be a mass exodus out of city's and move to anywhere but.

A month later, people started to feel cramped in their space and start looking beyond to see if they could afford a place with a backyard, some space and a home office. Many people did that and prices outside of the city core exploded. Prices also exploded all the way to Windsor and outskirts where nobody thought of. Find a nice peaceful town, with a backyard and pool, that's what people did.

People Will Be Begging to Go Back To Work. Real Estate Up?

It's pretty bleak right now. Nothing is positive in many people's minds. People are stuck at home, people are stuck home schooling their kids, people are out of work and the list goes on and on. 
The state of commercial real estate is in dire straits like we've never seen before, businesses boarded up, and the ones still in business are hanging by a thread. 
There will be hope coming when things go back to normal and businesses that once would never thrive will. 
Have you ever wondered why the stock market goes down and everybody cries but then a few days later the stock market comes back roaring with a vengeance to break records. It just happened. The same thing will happen with businesses and people in general. 
At the beginning of the pandemic when people started working from home everybody loved it. That was the general sense. I don't have to go into work, I don't have to travel, I don't have have to spend money, dress up, and talk to anybody. Now the generan ...
