Should you sell your Eatonville home in the winter? Part I

Posted on: December 5th, 2019

Selling Your Etobicoke Home

Brrrrrr it’s cold outside! I don’t know about you but, I’m not ready for this! With the recent change in the weather, one question I am often asked is whether selling your Eatonville  home in the winter is a good idea?

Showcasing your home during the coldest months of the year, can be a great way to focus on the cozy interior features of your home, as more buyers are picturing themselves spending more time inside. Some of the best houses I ever SOLD for the most amount of money in Eatonville and Etobicoke were in the coldest months of the year! So, here is Part I of my top recommendations, if you are going to be selling your Eatonville home in the next few months.

First impressions are everything!

  • Your home will be judged from the outside before anyone walks through the front door. Make sure it’s appealing and you have taken care of the exterior of your home. I can’t stress this enough!
  • Make sure the eavestroughs are cleaned out, prune back the bushes and trim any low hanging branches from your trees.
  • Give your walkway a good sweeping and make sure you have a well lit entryway that is welcoming.
  • Buy a new “Welcome Mat” depending on the time of year it can even be a festive one!
  • Have some colourful foliage in an urn or plant holder at the front door.
  • Is your door tired and worn? Maybe it’s time to give it a fresh coat of paint.
  • Have you been meaning to replace your old tired mailbox? This is a great time to do that too!

Add some lighting!

  • During the colder months of the year, your home’s lighting can be a little darker as daylight leaves us earlier.
  • Be sure to add some high voltage bulbs to your electrical light fixtures to brighten up the busiest area of your home such as front hallways, kitchens and bathrooms. Leave these lights on BEFORE any potential buyers come to view your home. This will give them a warm and homey feeling.

These are just a few ideas to get you started and thinking that selling your home in the colder seasons can be a very positive experience if you approach it the right way!

Stay tuned for Part II and if you would like additional ideas please send me an email to receive a copy of my book “How to Sell Your House Quickly and for Top Dollar” and learn simple things you can do right now to make sure your home sale goes as smoothly as possible!

Toronto and Etobicoke Real Estate Home Sales for August 2019

Posted on: September 10th, 2019

Toronto and Etobicoke Real Estate

Looking for current information on Toronto and Etobicoke Real Estate Home Sales for August 2019? Here are the latest numbers for Home Sales in Toronto and Etobicoke.

GTA REALTORS® Release August 2019 Statistics

Toronto Real Estate Board President Michael Collins announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 7,711 residential sales through TREB’s MLS® System in August 2019. This result represented a 13.4% increase compared to 6,797 sales reported in August 2018. On a month over month basis, after preliminary seasonal adjustment, sales were up by 0.8%.

GTA-wide sales were up on a year-over-year basis for all major market segments, with annual rates of sales growth strongest for low-rise home types including detached houses. This reflects the fact that demand for more expensive home types was very low in 2018 and has rebounded to a certain degree in 2019, albeit not back to the record levels experienced in 2016 and the first quarter of 2017.
