Snowed in ... with leaves

Was walking along West 7th Avenue, Vancouver on the way to show my listing when I came across this car which looked like it had been snowed in but with leaves. I wasn't sure what to expect when I returned to my car. Luckily I had found a parking space in a section with a few less trees. Glad I am not in charge of raking here. Our glorious fall weather continues.

Do buyers think your home is spooky?

Not everyone wants to live in a haunted house...or a house that feels spooky. If you remove all your Hallowe'en decorations, how would your place feel? Hopefully warm, cosy and inviting. Your home might be scaring away buyers if it is too cold. As the days get shorter and the temperature drops, it is important for buyers to feel warm when they are in your home. Warm means the furnace is working ...

Could saran-wrapped furniture be the next hot trend?

I didn't plan on having saran-wrapped tables. I blame the movers from the furniture store who delivered them that way. Now that they are in my space, I can certainly see the logic of them being and staying that way. The whole way it happened is a rather long story -- the short version is that where the tables were destined for was not ready when they arrived so they temporarily ended up in ...

Mirror, mirror

I am renovating. One of the first things to go was the mirror in the ensuite bathroom. That was weeks ago. I have been using a bathroom with no mirrors since then. Must say it is rather liberating. The queen from Snow White had it all wrong -- the magic is not in having a Magic Mirror...it truly is in just plain not having a mirror at all. There are so many fewer things to worry about when you ...

Building Furniture

The whole project looked easy enough -- until I opened the package and saw all the pieces...and the list of tools that were required. Of course, in the past, I had built a lot of Ikea furniture. I thought making something I had picked up at Liquidation World would be similar. Just didn't expect sooooo many nails or two-inch screws. I stood in the store for the longest time in front of the pile ...

Practice Thanksgiving

Practice Thanksgiving. This is a whole new holiday in my family. Others may think of it as the perfect way to score two turkey dinners. We thought it was the easy way to get everyone together when we couldn't be together on the real day.  Last Sunday we celebrated our first "Practice Thanksgiving." Everyone was there. Turkey decorations on the table. Pumpkin pie and pumpkin cheesecake ...

Is your home really for sale?

Sometimes it feels like homes are on summer vacation right along with their owners. There are three reasons why a property has trouble selling: price, condition and access. If it is difficult to see your place, it will take longer to sell. In an ideal situation, your agent should be able to show your property whenever a request is made. Not all buyers will wait for sellers to get back from ...

Is a 79 EnerGuide rating good?

The short answer, if it is an old house is YES. According to information I found from Natural Resources Canada on the internet, a rating of 79 on an older house puts it almost on par with an energy-efficient new house (these are rated 80 - 90). My new listing at 4510 Fraserside Drive which was built in 1990 now has an EnerGuide rating of 79 up from 55 before the energy upgrades were made in ...

Going Off Leash

Need a place to go with your dog that is designed for running and running and running...and maybe a little bit of playing too? The Hamilton Highway Park at 4571 Thompson Road, Richmond BC is a 7.2 acre dog off-leash area and park in the Hamilton neighbourhood. Think of it as a large open undeveloped green space that was created with dogs in mind. Park users must follow the off-leash rules posted on ...

Hamilton's VLA Neighbourhood Park

A quiet oasis in the center of Hamilton...this is the Hamilton VLA Neighbourhood Park located just east of Westminster Highway at 23231 Willett Avenue (on the corner of Willett and Smith). This 1.5 acre park has a paved 232m walking trail, a half basketball court, a playground, three benches and two picnic tables. I had the whole park to myself yesterday afternoon! The park is located near ...
