97 Morningside Ave., Swansea

July 8th, 2016 by Meray Mansour

The transformation of 97 Morningside Ave. in Swansea was a little more drastic than most of our other properties!  This home had extensive smoke damage and had to be gutted down to the studs and renovated fully before putting it back on the Market.  One of our Realtors, Jenn Gill, oversaw all of the renovations and chose all of the fixtures and finishes.  Once it was time to get it ready to put on the Market, we joined in to choose colours/ furniture and accessories.  The total process took the better part of a year but it was well worth it!

As you can see from the above pictures- this project took time, patience and good taste!  We were proud of the finished product and the clients were extremely happy with their property selling for $230k over asking!

Our team includes a comprehensive list of Realtors, Tradespeople, Designers, Lawyers, and Mortgage Brokers.  As we discovered with 97 Morningside Ave., we can handle just about any size of project from start to finish with confidence!  If you are interested in a consultation- do not hesitate to contact us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summer is the Time for Curb Appeal!

July 5th, 2016 by Meray Mansour

Summer is here and the first step to get your home/ condo ready to sell is to focus on Curb Appeal!  Part of our staging consultation includes a walk around the property to discuss curb appeal as it is your potential buyer’s ‘first impression’!There are ‘quick fixes’ and there are also larger ticket items that will contribute to maximum profit when you get ready to sell.  Read on for some inspiration!!

QUICK FIXES:

-Clean exterior windows (by yourself or a company will do for usually under $200)

-Paint your front door!  (a trendy new colour- http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-ca/for-your-home/benjamin-moore-colour-trends-2016  OR a classic charcoal grey or black)

-Landscape…landscape….landscape! (plant a garden/ hanging pots of flowers or ferns)

-Hide your recycling bins somehow (either enclose them or put in back of house)
