CENTURY 21 Global Referral Specialist
I enjoy travelling, spending time with my family and enjoy time at my cottage on Lake of the Woods.
Most cottages rely on lake drawn water or wells for service and septic systems of one kind or another for wastewater. Buyers should be aware of the regulations and be prepared to ask the right questions. For detailed information, regulations and inspections, contact the Northwestern Health Unit.
Cottage Staging Tips
Before you put your cottage on the market, make sure it looks its best to maximize your return. Take some time and consider the following tips to help you sell your cottage faster and for the right price!
- Make the space smell nice! Open windows, use air fresheners or bake cookies before showings.
- Lake appeal. First impressions are very important so make sure the exterior of your cottage reflects the right look that you are looking for. Paint your cottage. Paint is an inexpensive way to freshen up both the interior and exterior of a cottage. Try to keep colors neutral.

6 Tips for showing your home in Winter
Winter isn’t the most popular season for home sales, but the market is still active in colder months. Follow these simple tips to make your property shine for winter home buyers.
- Keep pathways clear
First impressions are everything, and snow and ice are dangerous hazards. Shovel sidewalks, your driveway and front steps and de-ice them. Ensure that pathways to your home are well lit.
- Schedule showings for daylight hours
Winter daylight hours offer less time for taking advantage of natural light. If you can’t schedule showings during daylight hours, brighten your home with interior lighting. Warning: bright winter sunlight can draw attention to dirty windows – so keep them clean.
- Think ‘cozy’
Turn up the thermostat during showings so visitors will feel the warmth of your home. Create ambience by using features such as gas fireplaces and wood stoves. Accent your home with soft throws, duvets and pillows. Play low, soothing music such as jazz or classical.
- Use natural scents
Avoid scenting your home with products with a chemical odour, such as artificial room fresheners and cleaning solutions. Air out your home and clean or dispose of odour-causing rugs and other fabrics. Employ natural fragrances that feed the imagination and appetite. Examples include freshly baked bread, cookies, cinnamon, apple pie and vanilla.
- Ask visitors to remove footwear
Showing pride in your home suggests to potential buyers that it is clean and properly maintained.
- Showcase your winter assets
Does your home and surrounding green space look picture-perfect in the snowy winter months? Do the trees in front of your home bare a beautiful view this time of year? Other assets, including proximity to main driving arteries in icy or stormy driving conditions, can also add value to your home
