Looking to boost your home's market value?


5 Simple Tricks To Boosting Your Property Value


A New Coat of Paint

This relatively inexpensive update can actually increase the value of your home, putting extra dollars back in your pocket! In fact, if you do one thing, let it be this! A new coat of paint can rejuvenate a home like nothing else! The investment of a few gallons of paint, rollers, and a drop sheet are nothing compared to the return you will get when your house sells!


Replace Worn Carpets or Flooring

Look around. Are your carpets and flooring stained or worn? Nothing turns buyers off more than the thought that they will immediately need to invest in all new flooring. Ideally, you may want to replace them all, but if a limited budget or time frame is an issue, start by replacing the carpet in the room that shows the most wear and tear, and replace the others as your finances allow.

Increase Efficiency

Many utility companies provide energy audits of their customers' homes. They can show you how to maximize the energy efficiency of your home. In turn, this will save you money now, while increasing your the market value on your home providing you with extra cash later!

Switch Out The Hardware

By far, one of the easiest solutions to creating a big aesthetic change is switching out your hardware. If your faucets, door knobs, and cupboard handles are looking outdated, head to the nearest hardware store or look online for inexpensive modern handles that can make your house appear updated and more valuable.


Green Inside and Out

Have you ever driven down a road, and seen a home that wowed you with it's lush landscape? You want to live there, and so does everyone else! Head to your local nursery, and make potential buyers envious of your home! Purchase plants that are native to your region or plants that are drought-tolerant; these require less water and maintenance, which means more savings to you and more green in your wallet.

 Kelowna is home to majestic forests, lakes, parks, vineyards, and more . It's easy to take a drive and get lost in Kelowna's never ending series of picturesque neighbourhoods and envision living in any one of the beautiful homes that reside there.

“Could you imagine living in that house?!” or “What I would give to own a home like that!” are commonly used phrases potential homeowners express when driving around town, but what if you could do even better?

 

Have you ever considered buying a newly-constructed home? Kelowna is constantly expanding, and new neighbourhoods are developing all over the city! Whether in West Kelowna, Black Mountain, Glenmore, Kettle Valley, Mission, or Downtown, you are going to find some amazing structural development.

While Kelowna also offers a grand selection of unbelievable pre-owned homes, we are going to give you 6 Good Reasons To Invest In A Newly-Constructed Home!

 

1. Customization: Bring out your inner architect, and design the home you have always dreamt about. Although it can vary by company, many  home builders allow buyers to participate in the process of designing their newly acquired property. This means you will finally be able come home to a space that is truly akin to you.  As a new home buyer, you can tap into your creativity and plan out where your bathroom might go, choose you favourite type of flooring, or pick the colour of the exterior paint. When purchasing a brand new home, there is typically a lot of flexibility for homeowners to express themselves and to ensure their new home will be adaptable to their current and future life path. 


2. More Money In Your Pocket: There have been quite a few changes in the last few decades in regards to building codes which have been mandated for  higher energy efficiency standards.

 



Newly constructed homes often use energy more efficiently. There are two ways in particular,  home builders create a better, energy efficient, cost effective home. First, they tend to create a tighter-sealed building envelope that helps prevent conditioned air—cool air in the summer, warm air in the winter—from escaping. Second, for the most part, home builders have done away with single-pane windows, and of upgraded to triple (or even quadruple) pane windows.  These windows that designed to drastically minimize the transfer of heat either from warm to cold or vice versa, and they of course, will help the building envelope. Thus, saving new home owners (like you) money in the long run!


3. Green appliances: Just one more way new “key turner” homes are putting more cash in new homeowner's pockets! New homes often come with new appliances, and nowadays, new appliances mean energy efficient, green technology. The more energy-efficient mechanics of the house, the lower the  utility bills for new home buyers. In addition to simply saving money, when newly-constructed homes include green systems and appliances—like high efficiency stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, water heaters, furnaces, or air conditioning units—that homes built years ago might not have, you are actively participating in the preservation of our planet, and that is something to feel good about!


4. Fewer repairs: The cost of home repairs can quickly eat through a family's savings account. Luckily, features of newly constructed homes should hold up better than those of older existing homes, which may have experienced years of wear and tear with little maintenance. When buying a previously owned home, you may find the carpet needs to be replaced, roofing needs to be redone, or new appliances need to be purchased. All of these expenses add up quickly, and the cost of properly maintaining a newly constructed house may end up drastically less over time.


5. Less maintenance: Speaking of maintenance,  today's new homes are engineered specifically to minimize maintenance requirements. For example, building materials such as composite products for a home's exterior trim instead of wood means less worry when comes to rotting or the need to repaint. Today's home builders have you (the home buyer's) best interest in mind. Therefore, they do their best to construct a home that is built to last with minimal need for expensive maintenance.


 


6 Fire safety: Now, it's no secret that the Okanagan has been home to a few forest fires. Luckily, we are also are home to some pretty amazing firefighters who stop at nothing to tirelessly protect our homes!  Newly constructed homes, however, often include fire safety fe

atures that may not be present in properties built years ago, Protective measures such as the use of fire retardant in carpeting and in insulation helps to protect against damage, and give the upper hand to those brave Heroes of the Okanagan. However, fire doesn't always happen outside, and in addition to the above safety measures, all newly constructed homes are required to include hard-wired smoke detectors. These devices can provide better protection than battery-operated smoke detectors, which can fail to perform if their battery runs out. Hard-wired smoke detectors run on the electricity of the house and then have a battery backup for if the house power goes out.

You've probably heard about "home staging". As the name implies, it's all
about arranging each room in your home in a way that will make the best
impression on buyers. Here's what you need to know about staging if you're
thinking of listing your property.
1. Staging can get you a higher price.
On average, a fully-staged home tends to sell for 17% more than an
unstaged home of the same type in the same local market.
Depending on the current market value of your property, doing some
staging in your home could put thousands of extra dollars in your pocket,
post-sale.
2. It can speed up the sale.
A study by the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) showed that fullystaged
homes spend an average of 90% less time on the market. So, if
you need to sell quickly – without dropping your price – or you just want
the comfort of having offers come in sooner, staging will definitely help.
3. You don't have to go crazy.
Completely staging every room in your home is going to give you the full
benefits of this strategy. However, you don't have to go that far. In fact,
just implementing a few simple staging techniques to some key rooms
can make a big difference.
4. Get professional help or advice.
When it comes to home staging, don't guess at it. Get professional help
or advice. As a REALTOR®, I have a lot of expertise in this area and
often provide clients with proven, do-it-yourself staging tips and
suggestions. If necessary, I can also recommend a professional stager.

The Bank of Canada opted to raise its target for the overnight rate 25 basis points to 1.5 per cent this morning. In the statement accompanying the decision, the Bank cited that the economy is operating close to capacity and as a result inflation is expected to edge higher over their two year forecast horizon. The Bank noted that incoming data suggests housing markets are starting to stabilize after the implementation of the B20 stress test.
   
With inflation rising to the Bank's two per cent target and the Canadian economy operating at or near capacity, the Bank of Canada is unlikely to be finished tightening. At its current level, the overnight rate is about 150 basis points below the 3 per cent rate the Bank would ultimately prefer it to be. However, the Bank may take a brief pause to assess the impact of its past tightening as well as the ongoing effects of the B20 stress test on housing markets. It may also be dissuaded from further tightening should there be a further escalation in trade tariffs from the United States. Overall, we expect at least one more round of rate increases from the Bank of Canada in 2018.

As the saying goes, “The early bird gets the worm”, but luckily for the birds, there are plenty of worms out there, and for the most part, they are all more or less the same. No worm? No worries. The bird will happily settle for something a bit less substantial.  However, you are NOT a worm, and unlike worms, affordable dream homes are limited

The market is hot, and thanks to the unique opportunities and flexible lifestyle the Okanagan accommodates, everyone wants in on the action! Still, not everyone gets what they want...



With Kelowna having a less than a .2 percent rental rate (the lowest in the country), and the highest rental increase (8.6 percent), it just makes more sense to buy, and everyone knows it. Why rent for the cost of buying, or spend years trying to find a rental, only to wind up in a small apartment? Heck, you could even rent out a room or basement suite to help cover the cost of your mortgage while simultaneously improving the rental situation.

As more and more people become aware of the housing crisis in and around the Okanagan, more and more people are becoming competitive when searching for homes to buy. This level of competition means stepping up your game, but don't sweat it; we are here to keep you focused on your target, and move in for the win!


Kelowna Home Finders has created a site listing just for you. It is constantly  being updated, so you can find the newest listing from Kelowna, West Kelowna, Mission, Lakeshore, Black Mountain, Glenmore, and more! Don't settle! Never miss out on another opportunity to purchase your dream home.

When you think about looking for a new home, one of the first questions that
probably comes to mind is: "What type of property can I afford?" That's an
important question because your price range is a major determining factor in
the types and sizes of homes you should be viewing.
You don't want to waste time looking at properties that are beyond your
price range. At the same time, you don't want to purchase a less-than-ideal
home, only to realize later on that you could have afforded more.
So how do you determine what type of new home you are qualified to
purchase?
The first step is to find out what your current property would likely sell for in
today's market. I make that calculation for clients all the time. It involves
reviewing what homes similar to yours have sold for recently, as well as
other data — such as special features your home may have that are likely to
boost the selling price.
Once you know the current market value of your home, subtract any
outstanding mortgages and estimated selling expenses, and you’ll end up
with an amount that can be applied to the purchase of your next home. (You
may also have other funds you want to use.)
The next step is to talk to a lender or mortgage broker to see how much of a
new mortgage you qualify for. (Call me if you need a recommendation.) It's
important to get a Pre-Qualification or Pre-Approval. That makes the offer
you make on a new home more credible.
If you want to find out the types and sizes of homes you can get into, give
me a call. I'd be happy to show you the possibilities!
