Don't Underestimate The Power Of Curb Appeal!

If you want to improve your home's market value, curb appeal matters. The condition of your front yard, entry area, driveway, and sidewalks will color the impression of everything else a potential buyer sees during a visit. Homes with great curb appeal usually command higher prices and spend less time on the market. Luckily there are simple, inexpensive ways to help your home impress.

1) Make it sparkle. Walk around the outside your house and take note of what looks dirty. Parts of your house that may get grimy over time include windows, downspouts, gutters, siding, and garage doors. These can usually be tackled with soapy water and a scrub brush. For a bigger job, consider using a pressure washer.

Buying a home is a huge decision that should be made based on fact and not fiction. Here are six examples of fiction that may have kept you from buying a home.

You may be surprised to learn that you too can be a home owner.

 Fiction: I will need a big down payment.

Fact:

This is not the case anymore. Years ago, home buyers were required to pay 20% of the purchase price as a downpayment. Things have changed drastically since then. The minimum down payment in Canada depends on the purchase price of the home. It’s now possible to have a down payment as low as 5%. For down payments of less than 20%, home buyers are required to purchase mortgage default insurance, commonly referred to as CMHC insurance.

Fiction: My credit score will stop me
