S.M.A.R.T. Goals Lead to a Beautiful Etobicoke Home.

We may be a few months into the new year, and you may already have started too feel some guilt around your resolution! Many people have trouble keeping the promises they make themselves – especially when they are big, vague goals like buying a beautiful Etobicoke home, for example.

Whatever your goal is, this is the time of year people start feeling a little anxious about them. That doesn’t have to be you however. If you have something you want to achieve over the coming months, you’re not alone. But you CAN be one of the ones who achieves it! You’ll have a much better chance of reaching your goal if you make it “SMART”.

SMART is an acronym that refers to the five ingredients of a successful goal: specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-bound. It is based on the work of famed management guru Peter Drucker, but the technique is equally applicable to personal goals.

If you have been thinking about selling, now is really a good time!

Did you know February is the only calendar month to have a length of less than 30 days! It’s usually 28 days unless it’s a leap year and the only calendar month that can pass without a full Moon (as is the case this year). Speaking of calendars did you get your 2018 wall calendar yet? If not, I still have some extra ones and can happily drop one off to you. Let me know by sending me an email or give me a call.

Selling Your Home in Etobicoke and Wondering Where To Put All Your Stuff?

Selling your home in Etobicoke and wondering where to put all your stuff?

As you’re probably aware, one of the key steps to preparing your home for sale in Etoboke is to get rid of as much clutter as possible. You want to make every room look spacious and comfortable.

But what do you do with the pictures, boxes, clothing, tools, furniture and other stuff you need to take out of your home?

Selling Your Etobicoke Home

For items that you don’t want anymore, you have two options: dispose or donate. You can dispose of items at your local waste depot or recycling centre, (but be sure to call ahead to confirm which items they will accept.) Donations can be made to organizations like Goodwill and The Salvation Army. These organizations are interested in good furniture, clothing, appliances (that work), bikes and other toys (that don’t need repair), and tools.

For items you want to keep, consider renting space at a local self-storage facility. Most offer a variety of storage options from lockers to garages, and typically charge by the month. As for security, most self-storage facilities have fencing, gates that require a passcode, cameras and other security features. You can also lock your own unit.

One of the drawbacks of self-storage is that you have to move your stuff twice – first to the storage unit, and then to your new home. An alternative that’s becoming increasingly popular is a Mobile Storage Unit. The unit is placed in your driveway for a few days while you load it with the items you want stored. Then it’s picked up by the mobile storage company and taken to their warehouse. When you move, the company simply drops the unit off at your new home for unloading.
