Getting Your Home Ready for the Market

You have likely heard that now is a good time to sell. Supply is down and demand is up, which means those homes hitting Realtor.ca are reaping the benefits of increased prices and quick sales. If selling is something you have been thinking about, we have compiled a checklist of what to do so your home sells quickly and for top dollar.

Step One: Secure a great real estate team

That’s the easy part – you have already picked a performance team with Kelowna Life and you’re ready to move to Step Two.

Step Two: Declutter

Take the time to think about where you are planning to move to. Maybe you already know or perhaps you are waiting until your home sells. Either way, you likely have an idea the size and lifestyle your new home will support. Keep that top of mind as you go through each room deciding what can stay or what should go – to storage, to donation, for sale etc. In today’s market, it is likely your home will sell quickly but it is best to pack away anything you know you won’t need for the two to three months.

Step Three: Quick Projects

Whether you got half-way through a project and didn’t quite finish, or there has been one you have been meaning to start, now is a great time to look at your home and see all of its potential from another buyer’s point of view. Would your kitchen go from good to great with a new backsplash? Could that front door really use a coat of paint? Take a look at all of the little things and decide which ones would be important to you if you were buying. Many times, these projects return much more than is invested, not to mention your home will appeal to even more buyers.  Be mindful – when the market is hot, weigh out how long a project might take to complete before you commit to it. If it takes too long, you might miss out.

Step Four: Minor Fixes

As you listed your home, you will be expected to fill out a Property Disclosure Statement. This will be a binding document that will help buyers be aware of any issues you know of on the property. We recommend going through the Property Disclosure Statement with your real estate agent before you list and proactively making any required repairs. This is an important step for liability. It will also help avoid snags in the process or delays upon an inspection.

Step Five: Do a Deep Clean

You only have one chance to make a first impression. Now that you have tidied up your home, take the time to get into those nooks and crannies. Trust us – buyer’s can tell. Showings are quick, but dirty baseboards and dusty fan covers can be distracting. Your buyers will appreciate the condition and be confident that the home has been properly maintained. You’ll feel the difference too.

Putting your home on the market doesn’t have to be stressful. Take these steps to be ready and trust us to do the rest. Your home will be presented in the best possible light and make a great impression on potential buyers.

Kelowna Winter Life Is Full Of Holiday Spirit

The holiday hustle and bustle is in full swing here in Kelowna. The streets are lined with dazzling lights and the festive cheer is palpable.  With less than a week until Christmas it is time to start enjoying all of the local festivities and joys the season brings, if you haven’t already.

One of the amazing gifts of living the Kelowna life is the ability to enjoy all four seasons at their prime. Winter is no exception. The Kelowna winter life brings big snowfalls that allow us to relive our childhood by building snowmen and getting in a good old snowball fight. The chilly days allow us to enjoy those stay in your pjs kinda days without all of the guilt. And, those days when we are lucky enough to see that beautiful sun shining and bright blue sky, we get outside and enjoy what Kelowna has to offer.

Have you been in full Buddy The Elf mood since November or do you need some ideas on how to get into the holiday spirit? You’ve either been planning your holidays since July and have already checked half of your holiday bucket list off. Or did you just realized Christmas is in a few days, haven’t even started your shopping, and need to amp your festive cheer into high gear,

Here are a few Kelowna winter life staples to get you Ho Ho Ho-liday spirit!

One of our favorite activities during the winter season that showcases the Kelowna winter life is strapping on some ice skates and visiting Stuart Park. The outdoor skating rink in the heart of Kelowna. What is more festive than ice skating outdoors under the stars and grabbing a bite afterwards from TNT Comfort Foods.

If you need a holiday cheer booster we suggest visiting Candy Cane Lane in Rutland. About 70 homes in the neighbourhood light up to provide an enchanting experience. This is a free event, however non-perishable items are accepted. Another favorite are the houses in the Wilden community. They actually do a friendly neighborhood Christmas light competition. Click HERE for a list of the best Christmas light displays in Kelowna.

However, maybe you are the kind of person who would rather enjoy the winter-ness from indoors. Don’t worry, there are numerous wineries and restaurants in Kelowna that are hosting festive events all season long. Local favorites include wreath making at Vibrant Vines Winery, and CRAFTmas on Bernard at Craft Beer Market.

We are blessed to experience the holiday season in Kelowna. With snow blanketing the landscape, twinkling lights on trees, and festive cheer everywhere, the community embraces the holiday spirit and makes Kelowna the perfect place to spend the holidays! Do you want to live the Kelowna Life?
