Have you ever walked into someone's home and thought, wow, this place is incredible, only to find out later that the neighbourhood is less than desirable?


Crazy neighbours, noisy roads, airplane paths, and frequent vandalism can all put a halt to that future you've been daydreaming about; and sometimes, you don't find out till AFTER you've purchased your new home and settled in.

When investing in a new home, it's important to consider, not only the property your buying, but also your surroundings; with any luck, you will be surrounded by them for a long time!

Even with the best real estate agent at your side, selling your home has its significant stressors. One of the most effective ways to reach potential buyers in Kelowna is creating an open house event.



An open house enables potential buyers to explore the home and neighbourhood while imagining their life within it. This experience allows the buyers to create an attachment to the house and speed up the offer. Likewise, it has the potential to turn them off and right back out the door!

If the thought of opening your home to perfect strangers is making you nauseous, we understand!

Don't worry! The Dion-Ivans Real Estate Team has your back!

Here's the thing. You're home, is waiting for you out there. The one you are standing in right now? The one you placed on the market? That home is their home.

Letting it go: We know it can be hard to let go of so many memories, but as soon as we get this place sold, you will be creating many more beautiful memories in a home that better suits you! Try and start letting go of the thought that this house is your home, and replace the word with house, property, or building.




Allow us to show you 4 Ways To Create A Successful Open House

1. Pre-Planning

Preparation is vital to almost any plan or project. An open house is no different! Sit down, and think about your target market. Is it a quiet street close to schools and parks: perfect for a family. Is it out by Gallagher's Canyon behind a golf course: ideal for retired individuals. Or, perhaps it's a smaller home right in the hustle and bustle of downtown Kelowna where the action is: great for an adventurous bachelor/bachelorette!

Once, you have your target market narrowed, grab a good ole fashion notepad and pen, and walk through your property with keen eyes, and no mercy! Be as scrupulous as you would be while looking for your new home. Leave nothing out!

After that, rank your findings from least critical to the highest priority problems that will most likely turn a buyer off.

3. Make It New
Taking a look at that list you created, it's likely not feasible to fix ALL the issues, however, by focusing on the more significant tasks at hand, you will most likely be able to see your home quicker, and even increase the asking price to make a profit out of your renos and time.





High priority items include:
Carpets and Flooring
Broken Windows or Mirrors
Dysfunctional Wiring or Switches
Chipped or Outdated Paint
Mold or Water Damage
Old Light Fixtures

Now that everything is in working order, it's time for a bit of elbow grease. Take a look around the house and yard. Clean up cobwebs and spider webs from outside (or inside if it's been an issue). Go through each room and declutter while cleaning meticulously!
Check out next weeks blog for detailed help on getting each room organized!

4. Setting The Mood
Now, it's time for the finishing touches! A friendly welcome mat, flowers on the table, and setting the stage! We want these strangers to feel right at home, and with any luck, they will be!

-  Set the thermostat to the appropriate temperature
-  Brighten the place up by letting the light through the windows
-  Store your valuables away from public viewing
-  Set out refreshments: The way to a buyer's heart is through their stomach...
-  Get Out! Sorry, you aren't invited to this party, but we'll be sure to send you an invite to your next housewarming! Buyers tend to feel awkward when homeowners are around. Take the day, and do something fun with the whole family!

The good news is this is a great time to be selling your home in Kelowna. No matter the location, Kelowna, and the surrounding area, hold substantial property value and are high in demand!

The Bank of Canada maintained its target for the overnight rate at 1.50 per cent this morning. In the statement accompanying the decision, the Bank noted that the Canadian economy is evolving in line with its projections and that real GDP growth is expected to slow in the third quarter due to fluctuations in energy production and exports. Inflation is anticipated to come down from the 7-year high of 3 per cent rate observed in July, falling back to 2 per cent in early 2019. The Bank further noted that housing markets are beginning to stabilize following the implementation of the mortgage stress test. Overall, the Bank's assessment is that higher interest rates will be warranted to achieve the 2 per cent inflation target, but policymakers are closely monitoring NAFTA negotiations and their impact on the inflation outlook.
   
With the threat of significant trade disruption looming from NAFTA negotiations, the Bank chose to pause its rate tightening cycle. However, strong economic growth over the past year has pushed the Canadiaeconomy beyond its full-employment level, creating upward pressure on inflation. Rising inflation and an economy operating at capacity means that the Bank of Canada will continue on its rate tightening path, likely at it next meeting in October with an ultimate goal of the overnight rate returning to between 3 and 3.5 per cent over the next two years.

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.
