Increasing Property Value on A budget
How do you increase the value of your property? Most real estate experts agree the best way to do this is to renovate and upgrade the home. Typically the kitchen and bathrooms top the list for requiring priority attention. Though kitchen & bathrooms renovations also tend to be the most costly.
So in deciding where to begin one needs to determine where one can leverage the most dollar value congruent with their goals. Also, what upgrades can one afford. Perhaps you have an older home that requires attention in certain areas, whether or not you are selling. Or indeed it has come time for you to sell and the home needs to become more attractive to buyers. But what if you are on a tight budget?
If kitchen and bathroom renovations are too costly the next consideration is the floors and walls, which carry throughout the home and inspires an impression. It’s useful to research what the trends are for flooring and wall finishes, and what solutions are workable in your budget to achieve a maximum lasting impression. Though maybe solutions are even more subtler than that? Which brings us to a client’s true story….
When their family settled in Calgary, being recent Russian immigrants they hardly knew any english and there was not a lot of money. After a time they were needing to sell their home so they set out to beautify it. Their main choice of focus was the backyard. They gathered large river rocks and set out to make a type of ‘serenity garden.’ The very first buyers that came to the home just happened upon the yard first. Upon viewing the yard and revelling this serenity garden, the lady of the buying couple said ‘I don’t even want to see the inside. I want this home.’ And it was sold. This is a totally true story.
Obviously we can’t always rely on serendipity to sell a home. But one can find very creative solutions to create an impression, thus increasing the value. So perhaps a budget savvy solution requires different questions? Such as, what would make me want to buy my home? How can I make my home reflect that it’s loved and cared for? What could really make this home more pleasing to the eye? Where can I make my home reflect more light & clean lines?
It could be that when your goal is to increase the value of your home on a budget, your maximum investment lies in choosing a focus, and invoking what you genuinely want your home to say about what it has meant to you.

Client Testimonial - "A Journey Made Easy"
A Journey Made Easy
The move from Calgary to Shediac was a challenge with much to do on each end of the trip. Dealing with moving companies, taking care of ending contracts with things like power companies etc., and then establishing new contracts can be very daunting. The biggest challenge is to find the “right house” in the Moncton area. We went online and searched for a realtor to help us in this quest.
How fortunate we were to have contacted Kevin Cassie, a realtor who supported us in more ways than what would normally be expected. We met Kevin on our initial trip to Moncton. First impressions were of a young man who was friendly and eager to help. Kevin showed us homes in Moncton and surrounding area that fitted “our most important needs”. He was informed about the entire area and pointed out the benefits and challenges of buying particular properties while not imposing his choice upon us. He would regularly tell us that he wanted us to find the house that we would be most pleased with and that it was important not to buy a house that we might later regret. He was patient and open to our questions, even though they might have seemed negative at times. We saw houses that had too small a kitchen, not a private enough backyard, and even too far up a hill. Kevin allowed us to vent and remained positive that we would find the perfect house. Indeed he did show us the house that covered our wants. He provided us with information about the area, suggested lawyers, arranged for a house inspector (Doug MacDonald was excellent), and allowed for a meeting with the owners who were welcoming and kindly arranged for items recommended in the house inspection to be completed.
We are very happy as we have settled in our new home. Kevin continues to maintain contact to see how we are doing. He has been there for us on the entire journey and certainly did make it as easy as possible. We would highly recommend Kevin Cassie to you if you are planning on buying a house in the Moncton area.
